Creating an Arena and Setting it Up

Creating a ColorShuffle arena isn't hard, but it does require some special considerations as far as placement is concerned.

  • Below the floor of the arena you should be able to drop into the void. the closer you are to the void the better.
  • The floor of the arena is constructed with 1 layer of ice with carpet on top of it.
  • The floor can be any color.
  • In order to set the position of the mats just place carpet in another color than the main floor color. If you want two mats that are touching each other then do them in different colors to keep them separate. Mats should be square, however, some other shapes may work as well. Feel free to experiment.
  • In order to create the sign with the current color on it just place brown clay blocks where you want it to change to the current wool color.
  • All arenas must have at least 11 plain floor blocks, 2 color mats, and 3 sign blocks in order to successfully create the arena. Once you are done creating your arena just do /color setup and follow the in game instructions!

Creating Join/Status Signs

To create a colorshuffle sign you need the colorshuffle.setup permission node. The format of the join sign goes like this:

  1. [csarena]
  2. arenaname

To display the players in an arena or are in the queue for an arena place a sign with this text on it:

  1. [csstatus]
  2. arenaname
  3. sign#


  1. [csstatus]
  2. test
  3. 1

Would show 4 players on the sign. You can use the numbers 1-4 for a total of 16 players being displayed.

Upon successful creation of a join sign it will show you stats about the current game. With the status signs they usually go blank unless players have used that arena after the last server restart.

Protecting Your Arenas

Although the plugin does prevent players who are in the current game from breaking/placing blocks, we have opted not to include any major arena protection in order to keep the plugin light. If players are going to be able to get to the arena outside of being in a game we suggest protecting it with WorldGuard or GriefPrevention in order to prevent griefing.


Q: Why can't I hear any sounds? I placed note blocks just like in
A: Although this plugin is based on the current code base as the one on some features have been removed, including sounds, cheat protection, and the Enjin Points integration.

Q: Is there any way for me to get the version with all the features that is on
A: At this current time: no. Those features are staying exclusive to

Q: Can I make an arena for you guys and have you put it on
A: You are more than welcome to create an arena and submit it to us! Just send me a PM with a link to either the world file or the worldedit schematic. If we like it and put it on our server we'll give you 100 enjin points to spend on our website.

       Previously, I was easily able to set up an arena, and everything works fine. However, now, when I attempt to set up an arena, it asks for the name, and I type in the name and press enter, and it does nothing. Please fix I dont know whats going on and I love this plugin. Please fix thanks :)

    I have a problem hope someone can help.

    I got everything working just fine but sometimes these things happen which are annoying:

    1. When player falls down he dies in the survival world and looses stuff like he just fell from the sky.

    2. When I force start the game it glitches and tells me the game started but still says 30 seconds till the game start even tho it started and then forces everyone to to quit and then starts to bug out after that.

    3. When number 2 happens it clears everyone's inventory and looses all stuff even if they re-log nothings back.

    How do i fix these problems., thanks.

    Great Plugin, its great to set up the color points for yourself! Just some additional Ideas: Can you make the waiting time editable in the Config? So that server owners can set it to 30 or 120 or something, instead of 60 seconds? And would it be possible to add the possibility to add steps in your arenas? So that you can also set up arenas, that aren't flat?

    Keep your good work going! =) MfG HimG
