ArenaCTF png


A Capture the Flag plugin where you pick up the wool color representing the other team, shown by visual around the wool. Once you pick it up teams are alerted and you need to bring the flag back to your base while your flag is still there. You can make more than one ctf arena and players will cycle through the different maps.


  1. Put the ArenaCTF.jar in your plugins folder, along with BattleArena.jar

Making a ctf arena

  1. /ctf create <ctf arena name>
  2. /ctf addFlag <ctf arena name> 1 <- add the flag for team 1
  3. /ctf alter <ctf arena name> 2 <- setup a second spawn
  4. /ctf addFlag <ctf arena name> 2 <- add the flag for team 2
  5. /ctf alter <ctf arena name> waitroom 1 <- add a waitroom (you can take a waitroom out by changing the config)


  • /ctf join

Permission Node

  1. Players will need the permission node arena.join.capturetheflag
  2. arena.leave , so they can type /ctf leave

How do I win ?

To capture the flag you need to bring the enemy flag back to your flag at it's home. If your flag is being held by the enemy you will need to kill them and return it back ( just walk over it ).

This plugin is made to hook into BattleArena, so you also need to download it as well.

    Hey There,

    Is there any way to make it so that there is only one game going on at a time and each game the map changes?

    Thanks Bewildered

    No it doesn't use it YET. I already made a suggestion about that and more.

    Does this not use the Built in flags yet? We have had real flags for a long time now!

    With FTP go to the plugin folder. There you find a teams yml. First on list is color of first team, second on list is color of second team and so on. just use the /ctf or /battlearena commands for command list.

    optional colours

    I just created an arena with 4 corners decorated in red, blue, green, yellow (prime colours) but when i define each spawn point it goes red, blue, white, black, it is overwhelming ly thrustrating that there is no FULL commands list with a full list of all the arguments and its permissions (instead of just saying /ctf command <argument><argument><value>, but there isnt, and thats what makes it overwhelmingly thrustrating when i do /ctf alter <arenaname> 2..3 it would be great if i could say ctf<arenaname> 2 4 4 being a colour code so i can specify a colour


    What is it?

    Hi there, we have installed CTF arena, and everything seems to work ok until a player dies and spawn back into the arena, at this point players are unable to kill each other, can someone please let me know if were doing anything wrong, this is how we have the ctf config set up for "On Death"

    onDeath: options: - teleportWaitRoom - clearInventory - respawnWithClass - hunger=20 - pvpOn

    Thanks in advance. EllisWin

    @minecraftman427: Go

    I just tested it on 1.8 and it works, which means that it'll also work on 1.7.9 and 1.7.10

    My plugins: BombArena, HostageArena, MailboxVoteListener

    Could you please update this to 1.7.9 or 1.7.10 because I really like this plugin and it's easy to set up, but it won't work because it is outdated.
