    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.

    [NOTE] when updating from an older version, there may have been added functions to the configuration file. the plugin may give errors for missing nodes or corrupted configs

    Does the survival arenas get deleted when they end?
    Can only op, or preson with sufficent permissions (event though I'm not seeying any nodes) can create and remove arena?

    The point is, if player can create arena, and it wont be removed after they end, they will create about 10k or more of them... you know what will happen then ;)

    for whoever likes to know...
    restructuring the plugin removed some major bugs that have been mentioned here...
    next version contains at least 5 permission nodes..
    also working on support for themes...

    since the system for the actual gameplay can now only be accessed by the arena the code looks alot cleaner and it's alot easier to work with, but it will take some time to get everything completely functional again :\

    i guess most people here know the height limit of 128.
    in the current version the arena is 128x128x128 to make a sphere.
    personally, i don't like to be limited to this size...
    so i made a test-arena with a height of 128 and a width of 256 (for both, x and z)
    not sure if i'm going to implement since this took me trice the time to generate [without structures]

    sometimes buildings dont spawn, im in the middle of a world is that supposed to happen?? OH AND I STILL WANT TO BE ABLE TO CHOOSE WHAT MONSTERS SPAWN!
  6. Offline


    buildings are generated randomly, and yes you are supposed to spawn in the middle of the world
    i'm working on a way to choose which monsters can spawn

    gonna switch to new build 1240 today, don't know what the effects are

    well, that may have been a bug in 1185 along with the bug that monsters and animals still spawn when you turn that off, but i'm working on a way to change the pvp settings for each arena

    We're really loving this on our server, is there a way to implement craft benches or to be able to place blocks though?
  14. Offline


    you should be able to place blocks :\

    i fixed some stuff on not rebuilding worlds [figured out the problem when i finaly found it]
    also improved some config stuff.
    Show Spoiler

    --this is without anything but trees, there will be added more stuff--

    smaller arena:
    snow theme [i'm going to add redwood trees and some other things]
    alternative terrain - rocks [i really need to edit this theme]
    alternative terrain - land masses [i'm going to edit this theme after i finished the rocks thing]
    swamp theme [only going to add some stuff like reed, mushrooms and stuff]
    desert theme [going to add oasis and cactus]

    still working on some other stuff

    any thoughts?

    i hope i'm done with this update at the end of upcoming weekend, but i can't guarantee anything so far [some stuff goes verry slow and i'm lacking some time]
  17. Offline


    Just a thought. maybe allow only a certain amount of land beneath the map. E.g. 3 layers of rock etc. I played this for around 5 min and found 11 diamond using the miner class. this would make it kinda easy to survive as i can then craft all diamond tools, etc. So far the plugin is great and the now generations look great. sorry if this has already been suggested. :D

    Need video tutorial for classes please
  19. Offline


    @Ryelio i won't remove land, just alter it so that there's useless stuff underneath it [any function for gravel yet?]

    @huynh88 classes tutorial video will be added with the next update as i'm going to change the way classes are loaded. 1 config for each class sounds reasonable, right? :p

    looks amazing, I just couldn't find permissions support, can it be ran on a public server with no risk and the ability of normal users, not OP's to use it?
  21. Offline


    The Consol doesnt said anything :(

    maybe it works if i create a world with the name : Hell and then it would work ?
  22. Offline


    go to arenas.yml and add this:
    id: 0

    then try /sa create Hell nether

    i've heard about this error from someone else, but i cannot figure out where to change stuff.
    didn't see anything like this in my test-version yet [i suppose that's a good thing]
  26. Offline


    I think i know the issue why people cant destroy or place blocks inside the arena. For me, Iam using Permission 3 and permission creates a config data for each world, but the config file for the arena world isnt read by the plugin so it would be super very nice if you would add a permission system
  27. Offline


    next version has support for built-in permission system. also adding custom drops per arena ~

    After leaving the arena, it started lagging, when I looked in the log comb

    error per 5 second! What am I doing wrong?

    Please help me form German. Sry

    i've seen that before, but was unable to figure it out. it has something to do with the timer spacing out.
    i don't mind the german, it's a bit confusing to use two languages in a single sentence. it helps alot to know a bit of the language :p

    I don't know whether or not this has been asked, because I never read but,
    When I reach the time limit, i think I'm supposed to die. Instead, all the monsters freeze, the squids start to rise, then the server crashes. Is this a problem that others have? Is there a fix?
  31. Offline


    i'm unable to reconstruct this situation.
    moster freezing and squid rising is due to server crash. i don't know what to fix from just this information :\
    can you send me the stacktrace [from you log] in a pm? i'll take a look
