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.

    @SFDr3amz: Go

    The compass is not a glitch, its probably a permission from (i think) Essentials to allow players to jump trough walls. Just neglect this permission to fix it.

    About the premium classes i'm not sure maybe there is a permission per class option?

    Can you please add classes to this so i can have premium classes that people can buy. Plus the compass in the inventory allows players to glitch out the map.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to reset the map each time the match ends, because i want the players to be able to break blocks and then the next match it resets the map/arena.

    If there is not a way to then, can the author please add it. Example: /ctf resetmap <arena>

    to force reset it and you could also have /ctf autoreset <arena>
    witch would reset the arena to its original state every time the match ends.

    Is there a way to restrict access to arenas based on the permission node arena.join.capturetheflag?

    Say if I named my first arena alpha and my second beta. I don't want my beta group on the alpha map and vice versa. So am I able to do something like negate a permission node such as -arena.join.capturetheflag.beta for the alpha group? If this isn't already currently available, can this be added? Would be a huge help! Thanks!

    Edit: Also, is there a way to define what type of heads get assigned to teams? I don't want to keep using Red Vs. Blue, I have a theme where I use skeleton vs. withers, and want to know if I can somehow keep Red vs. Blue for most matches, but assign A Skeleton Skull Vs. Wither Skull to a different CTF Arena. The Battle Arena Teams config would suggest I have to have 30 something teams in order to finally reach the team that I want, which is not feasible in the least. When I try to go into the CTF config and change the team ID to the one that matches my skeleton teams, the arena no longer functions. Any input would be appreciated!

    @WinFamSurv: Go

    Since a update from BattleArena plugin a few days ago they added a onkill option have a look at that. I'm sorry for responding so late and not being able to help you with your last problem. The owners (i think) on dreadcraft and also on the chat site of the battle arena still keep these plugins updated. i recently gave them a list of suggestions they said they were going to work on. The chat site: The new download:

    Ok Ive managed to solve my last problem, but now have a couple of questions.

    1. Does anyone know if it is possible to award players money prizes each time they get a kill against a player?

    I know how to give the players money if their team wins, just wanted to give them cash each time they have a kill.

    2. Is this plugin still being supported/updated by the author?

    Thanks in advance
