    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

    This is totally awesome! I am so gonna try this out, but do we have to change game mode to 0 ourselves or is it automatic?

    @salmonfishlau no you don't. it's set to CreativeSurvival when you enter
    @Evilhaunting i tried to find something about that but didn't find anything usefull so far

    did anyone want commands to change arena theme/size/pvp/timelimit?
    i don't care because i'm gonna add them anyway.
    also, i seem to have fixed the time limit thingy (yay), and i fixed the spawn location in smaller worlds. larger worlds seem to bug but i'll fix that later today.
    after upload i'll see who needs commands to set class and if they're needed i'll add them.

    going to work on something to save your stuff and info before you enter and place everything back when you leave, so you don't have to store all items before you enter. unable to tell when that's finished though

    well, everything should be working fine for now. i've tested all commands for wrong input but failed to find a malfunctioning command.
    please send a pm about any bugs found.

    Does this plugin join up with Heroes? It would be, indeed, help full to the whole 'survival pvp with levels' server i'm runing :)

    Also, when creating such an arena (or, simply, maintaining it) will it be heavy on the server side? or is it like a (smaller) nether?

    Hi calthor,
    your plugin is very fun and I have spent many hours to play SurvivalArena.
    Howewer, in the last version of the plugin, there are several problems : in the lobby room I don't see any sign to select a class, then in the arena the difficulty is very hard : there are dozens of Ghasts, Giants, Creepers, Silverfishes, etc. in daytime and night. Fortunately, the theme and the size change in the config file works perfect !
    So please fix these bugs :) !

    PS : Sorry if my english is not perfect, I am French.
  10. hey after its over eveyone leaves with what class they used e.g diamond armour and iron sword

    I really want to try this, but I don't want to go to any pre-release...

    I've loaded this on my server - It's awesome! Even the 'easy' maps are really challenging ^^; I must say, I wasn't expecting the Ghasts to be there~ Good job!

    @dazza77777 i'll work on it
    @michaelsloan set it to something like 99D [nobody would reach that]
    @Redlac31 the current version isn't for a pre-release, it's for 1.8.1
    @YaoiNinja thanks :)

    ...looks nice...

    This plugin looks really nice and I was eager to use it on our server, but when I try to make an arena it says the following message:
    You don't have permission to create an arena.

    Does anyone know why it says that?

    I'm using Bukkit 1337 with the following plugins:
    • BomberCraft
    • ChairCraft
    • CommandBook
    • CraftBookCommon
    • CraftbookCircuits
    • CraftBookMechanisms
    • Gold2Economy
    • iConomy
    • BukkitCompat
    • MineMaze
    • MobileAdmin
    • PermissionsEx
    • PlugMan
    • RevverChat
    • Safe Creeper
    • SurvivalArena
    • WorldEdit
    • Permissions
    • dynmap
    • ChestShop
    • iChat
    • LWC
    • MyHome
    Also I'm OP and in Pex I've granted myself * permission.

    since you're OP you should be able to create an arena. you could try to run the command in the console
  17. OMG! Awesome plugin! Thanks so much for creating this plugin!:D (L)

    Really? I must have gotten confused... It says 1317 as the version number, I just assumed that it was a prerelease bukkit version... Thanks!

    @Redlac31 for as far as i know there's no pre-release version of bukkit yet

    Alright, trough console it works.
    But I still can't find a way to do it trough normal commands (ingame I mean)
    Anyone has suggestions?

    Hi all, i had read that during the day, the mobs spawn normally so in my server, we clik on 'ready' and then we have like 10 sec to run somwhere before : more than 10 ghast spawn, and other mob too. So.. It's a bug or we have to configure the config.
    Tx, bye

    Hi, first off I'd just like to say this is a bloody awesome plugin. It's exactly what we have been looking for to liven up our survival server.

    This might seem a bit idiotic but how do players select their classes; I can't find a command for that anywhere. The plugin also tells me the arena has no classes loaded, so do I need to load them and if so, how? I have not edited anything in the files, all I have done is made an arena and played it.

    Sorry if this is really simple and I'm being stupid but I can't find help for this anywhere and I would really like to get some classes going. Thanks again for this awesome plugin!

    I have a problem with this plugin:

    There aren't any sign, where I can choose my class.
    Any Ideas why ?
  26. Offline


    @wiLLSY you're right, there's no help thing yet but i'll be working on a tool to easily create classes. if you want to go at it right away send me a pm and i'll give some help
    @Homegamer there should be signs, or you're lacking the class files. try to rebuild the arena, send a pm if it doesn't work.

    i downloaded the newest version but again iam not allowed to build. could you tell me the permission nodes ?
  28. Offline


    Why a new world? :(
    That's my only complaint. :s
    Adding another world might make my server blow up.
  29. Offline


    @Crackripper there are no permission nodes for building, except for the ones that allow you to build outside the arena. [but that's outside and doesn't affect the building inside]

    @Lildirt :confused:
    the reason i make another world is for making the use of the different generators easier, and to make sure the mobs won't escape and do damage to the other worlds. beside that, it works like the nether, bug won't take up as much space since you can't get outside of the arena [or atleast, you shouldn't be able to]

    I am also not getting the signs, I checked my plugins folder and I do have the Classes exactly as the plugin created them. (I haven't modified them) I have tried rebuilding my arena still no signs. I also tried creating a new arena and still again no signs.
