    SurvivalArena - Survival arena minigame
    Version: 1.5 alpha

    this is my first plugin, so may contain bugs...
    when playing on a survival server for a while it may become boring, so i thought of a way to keep the survival spirit alive, and came up with this.
    this plugin creates a new world, the arena. people can enter the arena with commands and end up in a place in the top of the arena where they can select their class, and get ready. when all players are ready the game starts, and they have to survive as long as possible. they can build only inside the arena sphere, and there's a height limit so they won't be able to get out or destroy the whole arena.
    when the players die, they're out. when all players are out, the survival game ends and the arena is reset. between the start of the reset and the end of the reset the arena won't be available to anyone.
    when testing the reset functionality it took about 10 seconds to completely rebuild the whole arena.

    please, send a pm when you've found a bug, got and error, or have an idea. i'll try to fix the bugs/errors and will look at the ideas and may add them to the plugin.

    This looks really interesting, are there high amounts of monsters spawning? or is it just like playing until you die in a normal map?

    calthor

    there's a high amount of monsters spawning at night only, at day the monsters spawn at normal rate.

    Quizdonkey

    But it is a significant level more dangerous then normal maps?

    calthor

    it should be. you don't have infinite space to keep running, and there's quite alot of monsters in the first night

    Alright thanks! Once there is a reward system in place I will definitely download :)

    i'm working on that right now, and i think it's done in a few hours. the reward system will also give people a reason to actually fight the mobs instead of staying underground since it works with the experience the players get.

    okay, may take a while... found some problems with using experience and levels... v1.1 goes up tomorrow

    just updated to 1.1 :)
    fixed some bugs and added experience related reward system [yes, i made experience have a function :p]
    rewards are configurable in the config file

    there will not be a next version for a few days, but i'm still working on bugfixes and additions. next up are permissions and the remove command

    Looking good! adding it now, I'll tell you what me and my players think once we test it some :)
    Edit: Before I download, what bugs should I expect? Since you said you are still working on bugfixes
    Edit #2: Ok this is sort of sad but I can't figure out the command to make an arena, I tried /create test, /sa create test, /survivalarena create test

    now that you mention it, the commands start with /survival
    maybe i should change it...

    Hehe maybe, well thanks

    I just did a (very) quick playthrough, and you did an absolutely fantastic job, especially considering it's your first plugin. the config file is simple and easy, the world generation is extremely interesting and fun, and it's just a fun little game to play.
    I'll spend a good chunk of tomorrow tweaking the config just right, I'm rather looking forward to it.
    If I could suggest anything it would be to add a "maximum time allowed" to the config, as an option opposed to "last man standing"
    Great job, now I'm heading to bed :p

    This plugin is AMAZING well done you must of taken along time to set this up but, one question, when you add permission support, what permission system could be used and, an idea im not sure is possible but a way of party survival so you create a party (maybe using the mcmmo party system) and then in your party you can make a party survival area that only people in your party can join, just a suggestion :D

    Great Plugin Bro!!

    On the future can u add iConomy plugin support for money rewards :D?

    calthor

    @lezyamin i'll work on that, but it may not be in the plugin right away

    @huynh88 that depends on the server, for me it takes around 10 seconds

    @Cristof i think i can, but i'll have to figure out how iConomy works first :p

    another bug is when u leave u leave the arena and when a new person joins the arena when people are already in all the players go back to the start position, so maybe make it when people are in no more can join :D

    mindystorm

    can you make it so you can choose what monsters to spawn in an arena? because my server buddies dont want to battle silverfish and spiders and other mobs. so i could make a creeper only arena or something thx

    Can you make a tutroial video on how to make more classes?

    calthor

    @mindystorm i thought of implementing this along with arena themes

    @huynh88 i don't know how to make vids myself, but i'll figure something out. i planned to create a help page for some stuff anyway (i thought the reward system might be confusing)

    here's an image from something i'm working on, anyone who likes to guess what it might be used for? :p

    can you make it so we can customize arenas? maybe a command like /sa build to go into a changeing mode? /sa done to save?

    *estimate on iconomy support?

    Hi there,
    we tested your plugin on my server and encountered a few problems.
    Two of us can't build in the arena, is this intended?
    Also after someone died, our chat was spammed with death messages and the server crashed a few times.
     
  28. Nice!
    This looks really fun, and finally I don't have to think of a design for my arena :p

    @patey the arena's are regenerated after every round, it is already possible to build in the arena, but nothing will remain when you start another game. it would take a very long time to regenerate a level to whatever it was before the game started.

    @InsaMcFlow you cannot build above the height of 112, or outside the sphere. you should be able to build inside the sphere below y=112. i have not been able to reproduce the second problem.

    Whenever I try to use /sa leave when I'm in the arena it says the command isn't allowed! And I'm the owner/admin/op of the server!
