Teleporting & Travelling between Planets on StarCivs:

Teleporting between planets and locations may be no easy task, as one needs to have had already been there, and recorded the location's coordinates, or having been given coords. But nothing is stopping you, as a player, from teleporting to randomly thought of Coords.

This is how a teleport sign should be formatted.

Note: NO SPACES, and, the 'Teleport:' and the comma's, should always be present on the their shown-lines.
Explainaton of the "x","y","z", and "WORLD" Variables:

The x,y,z variables are required,
because they tell the Hyperrring/Starfighter/CargoShuttle/Starship/Dreadnaught where to teleport to within the vehicles current world.

Whereas the "WORLD" variable is optional, and will only work on Hyperrrings, CargoShuttles, Starships, and Dreadnaughts -- This variable tells the Teleport/Warp Sign which World/Planet to Teleport to (if not already there).

 

How to Power (RPower) Redstone within your Vehicle, from a sign:

This is how a(n) [RPower] sign should be formatted.
Replace the 2nd through 4th Lines to an easily remembered/short name/description.
[RPower] Signs allow you to toggle/activate any Lever/Stone Button adjacent to the sign.
However, it does not adhere to certain redstone mechanics so the actual power source, the activated Lever/Button, will need to be directly connected to a wire/repeater.

 

How to Remotely Control Weaponry and other Functionality within your Vehicle, from a sign:

This is how a(n) Remote Sign should be formatted.
Replace the 2nd through 4th Lines to an easily remembered/short name/description.
Remote Signs allow you to control/activate ANY Sign based Mechanism on your Piloted Craft/Vehicle,
Such as [RPower] Signs and Turrets

To use this system:

1: You must be the pilot of a craft.

2: The craft must have a sign attached, and the sign's 2nd-4th lines must contain the same text as the sign you wish to activate.

3: Right Click the Remote Sign

 

How to (Somewhat) Secure your Items:

Keep your stuff safe from other players with [Private] signs,
Which prevent Normal/Non-Staff Players from accessing your items in a chest/trapped chest/doors/other inventory blocks.

 

How to Remotely Control Weaponry and other Functionality within your Vehicle, by Right Clicking a Book Item:

Direct Weapon Control IMG 1

Get a regular Book Item, not one that can be written though.

Rename the Book to what ever is on the sign you wish to activate's 2nd-4th lines.

To use this system:

1: You must be the pilot of a craft.

2: The Craft must have a sign attached, and the sign's 2nd-4th lines contain the same text as the Book you named.

-- If there are multiple signs with the same text, it will only activate the first one the system comes across.

-- To get around this, use a Remote Sign (shown in a prior guide).
