    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

    @Aricus i know, use /survivalarena leave instead, i'm working on that [i noticed it as well]
    i figured it had something to do with the allowed commands, but i didn't find anything wrong there...
    i'll look at it again when i've got time for it

    i want to be able to make my own arena that gets genertated, not use default

    I tried this, it still does not work. I am using SA that I downloaded about an hour ago.

    Also, in the rewards can you explain how it is set up?

    amount: 2
    value: 50

    Does that mean they get item ID 264, which is diamond, 2 of them every 50 kills? 50 seconds? 50 minutes? Or does this mean they get 2x item ID 50 every 264 kills

    @patey right now that's impossible, but i may try to work on that later

    @Aricus i'll give an extended explanation later on how to set up everything in the config files, but here's a short answer:
    '<id goes here>'
    amount: <amount of items in the stack goes here>
    value: <*>

    *the value has [directly] nothing to do with the amount of kills, it is the amount of experience you need to get this reward. a normal range of experience from a long game is from 100 to 200, so don't set the value to 500

    ok thx

    Sooo I tried using this mod and it is amazing all I'm wondering is how can I use it with PvP. And if it doesn't work then PLEASE add this. It would add a fun extra level to this and make it all the better. Maybe add an option to change it. I tried changing with a different Plugin but it just ended up breaking the map. When this gets added tell me so I can redownload it thanks. I made an account just for this :D

    This mod is awesome! You now need to combine it with permissions so that you can set special commands for groups you want to have them! Like you could make a ref command where there is a referee box in the center and he can spawn more of the selected monsters at will?

    EDIT: I also know a problem in your config. You have the old command set as permitted not the new one. (ie. it shows survival instead of survivalarena)

    Love the plugin but the support classes on my server have been complaining because they don't get exp. Is there anyway you can wait until the game is completely over and then divide the total exp between all the players? Or find some way that support classes get xp too
  10. Offline


    @knndylx i'll take a look at pvp, it will probably come with the arena themes update

    @tjs238 i can do that, but still have to figure out which permission system to use (working on getting default and Permissions 2.x to work on my test server). about the config file problem, i figured out another way that seemed to work, without need of the config file [this plugins commands are always allowed in 1.3+]

    @Aricus for starters: what are support classes? :×
    since monsters don't drop alot of experience i'm trying to make monsters drop more experience [silverfish don't drop experience anyway] so the reward values have a larger variety

    also, i started working on arena themes today :)
    i need different generators for that, and that may take a while [i want the generators to be fast, which seems to be tough]
    don't expect the next update to contain the arena theme's, i guess i'll just update for some bugfixes

    Ok. Just wanted to point out the problem and give an idea!

    no commands work ingame, I cant leave, degod or anything, this needs to be addressed, also anychance of disabling God and Fly on world join? to make it fair if mods or admins join and forget they have it on, maybe hook into multi Inv to clear inv on enter world so player can enter and leave the game without clearing inv as it would reload their inv on exit of your game world

    EDIT# in the congif added the command strings so hopefuly that works upon a reload, also is there a way to LOCK the arena once players all signal they are ready as everytime a player joins it respawns us back to the center spot halfway through doing stuff, or just spawn THAT player instead of regrouping us
  13. Offline


    @Teldelariel i never used a godmode plugin or a flight plugin and never thought of using any. clearing invs and saving them goes good, but restoring them is a problem when players log out, get kicked, have a client crash or when the server crashes, so i figured it would take some work later on, along with saving the location and teleport the player back to the place where they left. i was already working on an arena lock, but never noticed that glitch before.

    one of the reasons i posted this plugin while still developing is because i lack the ability to test with groups of users.

    just make an option to enable pvp for the next update :D for like PvE against all the mobs along with PvP. All you have to do is make it PvP enabled or the option to change it to PvP too. So that way you get the added challenge of other people fighting as you fight the mobs. :) sorry if it's a lot to ask, it just excites me!
    Also, if you want more classes make them yourself! I made an archer, a demoman, a manager, and a jack of all trades... I also buffed some of the support classes such as the miner and lumberjack get better armor, and the farmer gets more seeds. Really great mod by the way

    Cool plugin. I'm a user, not an admin on the server. The only problems is that the arena doesn't seem to rebuild itself D:. You'll have to talk to the admin though about it.
  18. Offline


    AWESOME! Idea: can you make so it spawns like chests with armour and food in the middle of the arena?

    One more idea: spectating?

    Ps. Ever heard of the hunger games?

    i cannot confirm this in any way right now, since it always rebuilds in my test server.... but i'll look at it

    working on something that gets close... something like a treasure-room in the middle of a maze....

    i like it :)

    nope, but i'll go check if i can disable using food :p

    Sounds like Mobarena...

    but better, we used Mob arena but this creation of a small world were you can build destroy and then KILL is much better.
  23. Offline


    By support classes I mean the farmer, miner, etc. My players said they get exp only by killing the creatures. Is that true? I haven't actually tested this because I'm always the attacker. I could be wrong
  24. Offline


    I have another input here, I have players who join the game but cannot leave of there own accord ALL commands are banned from being used except for Help, I tried both Variations of your command with the syntaxes, leave, help but to no avail, all comands weather from your plugin or not with the exception of Help do not work and I get "YOu are not allowed touse that command in here" Any suggestions ?
  25. Offline


    Help page needed! I keep trying to replace lumberjack and add classes, but keeps crashing!
  26. Offline


    eh, yes. and that's not something i came up with, but normal in minecraft. i'm not planning to change it, i only planned to change the amount of experience dropped by each creature

    look at the config file, there should be a list of allowed commands there. add some commands you want to use to it and reload, that should work.

    i know, but i've had like no time at all last few days. i'll work on it this weekend
  27. Offline


    I have done that, I have added "- leave" and other commands and reloaded but to no avail. I can post my config here if you like
  28. Offline


    Actually tried the plugin now :O EPIC, love it, but one thing: more pvp stuff.

    (excuse my terrible english)

    I know you can make classes out of the config file, but how do you that EXACTLY.

    It's confusing and there are so much spaces in between each line and letter in the file, that when the server starts, it corrupts the world. Help please? DX

    We ran into a pretty big bug. Lets say 5 of us join the arena. 1 of us dies. He then does /sa join and waits at the top platform. The other four of us die and are returned to the real world. He then uses the ready button and goes back in. Then he dies. It will kill everyone that is in the real world too and spam the console (like 50 messages per second) that the arena has been reset. It then locks up the server and must be restarted.

    Can you PLEASE make it that if people are in a game that is running that others can't use /sa join THATWORLD. If we have more than one game going they'd be good to join the other world, just not worlds that are running.

    So you're making support classes useless then? Why would I want to spend the 4 days mining to get better items for the Attacker character so he can get exp when I can't? Sure a miner can find ore and become an attacker himself but then you're pretty much forcing him out of the class he signed up for. I think you're missing a HUGE opportunity to make this plugin great. In MobArena everyone gets exp by how many rounds you make it through. So if I am a support class I can spend the whole time doing what I'm supposed to do and I still get the same rewards as someone else. Until you make the changes needed to make the classes unique and worthwhile we are making only 1 class on our server that has a sword, pick, hoe and shovel.

    Why be anything but attacker when the attacker is guarenteed the most xp because of the setup
