A Spleef plugin where players can queue and will join a free Spleef arena. You can make more than one Spleef arena and players will cycle through them. If all arenas are in use, the players are kept in the queue and will join when one opens up.

You can modify all aspects of the spleef by editing the SpleefConfig.yml. Including what items they get for the spleef, whether they get prizes, etc.


  • Regen layers at specified intervals
  • Multiple layers can be created for any arena
  • Multiple arenas can be used at one time
  • Small team matches or server wide spleef events


  1. Put the ArenaSpleef.jar in your plugins folder, along with BattleArena.jar, WorldEdit.jar, and WorldGuard.jar

Making a Spleef arena

You will have to create an area for the spleef. Make one or more layers you want the players to fight on. Make sure that below the last layer that the players either land in water or lava/some other deadly trap.

  1. /spleef create <Spleef arena name> : Example /spleef create myFirstArena
  2. /spleef alter <Spleef arena name> 2 <- setup a second spawn, you can keep adding them if you want more than 2, like /spleef alter <Spleef arena name> 3. Example : /spleef alter myFirstArena 2
  3. Now select the layer you want the players to fight on with the WorldGuard edit tool (usually a wood_axe)
  4. /spleef setLayer <spleef arena name> . Example /spleef setLayer myArena
  5. you should probably protect the entire area with worldguard so they can't break out of the spleef arena.

Adding Multiple Layers

  • /spleef setLayer <spleef arena name> <layer num> .
    • Example /spleef setLayer myArena 2

Adding Regeneration to Layers

  • /spleef setRegen <spleef arena name> <regen time>.
  • /spleef setRegen <spleef arena name> <layer num> <regen time> .
    • Example /spleef setRegen myArena 45 <- regen layer 1 every 45 seconds


  1. players will need the permission node arena.join.spleef
  2. /spleef join
  3. Permissions to leave arena.leave

    So can you go over step by step of how to "overwrite" the schematic file for the missing snow blocks? I'm having the same issue as ggtank.

    @Rillithain: Go

    I checked and you are correct. The region the plugin creates has pvp deny and build allow. If you don't have ANY other regions, then region priority wouldn't matter. It definitely sounds like the ability to break blocks is being disabled by the plugin (EX: - blockBreakOff)

    @Rillithain: Go

    I'm at a loss. When you say you can't break blocks, does it behave in a similar manner when something is protected by Worldguard? Like... it allows you to break it but puts it right back? Or does it not break at all? Maybe sharing your spleefconfig.yml may help.

    You shouldn't even need build: allow for the region I don't think... but I will double check on it tonight. The area my arena is in has very large and detailed Colosseum looking arenas, so I actually have the area protected where others cannot break or place blocks, yet the spleef arena works fine while a game is going on. The arena settings override worldguard for a time. They can't do much damage with a shovel :D

    @ggtank: Go

    Hi there! This has been discussed here and on the BattleArena2 page. When creating the region using the commands, it saves a .schematic file for WorldEdit... problem is it saves an empty schematic. The work-around right now is to place the snow blocks manually, and manually save the snow blocks you placed as the .schematic that the plugin generated before, essentially over-writing the empty schematic with one that actually has the snow layer in it.

    Reference these posts for more details:

    i figured out setting the match time

    /spleef setoption matchtime <time-seconds>

    Any other ideas why I can't dig once the game starts, but I can dig fine any other time in that area? When you start, does the game take away your permissions or change your rank or anything like that?

    This plugin doesn't work. Layers disappear on the start and we fall into lava :(
