This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to mcstats.org:

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version

If you wish to disable this feature (/me cries), you can do so by opt-ing out, which you can do in the config file under /plugins/PluginMetrics/

    Got the 1.8 server up and running. I start a game but can't harvest/mine any wood or ore because when I break the blocks nothing is dropped. Is there something I didn't start or configure properly for this to be occurring? I've looked through the blocks.yml, but can't seem to find anything wrong. Removing the block types listed in the .yml allows me to harvest/mine the wood/ore, but then I can't craft anything because the rules for how these blocks are supposed to change is no longer there.

    Also, can you add the public storage to all gametypes?

    This plugin is sweat! Please keep maintaining this! Works pretty well. Only problem is make it more configurable: make it so that in the classes you can use items names and lores and enchantments, and maybe add a permission node: DvZ.vip that gives you a better chance of getting good monster classes and all four dwarf classes.

    Hello! i made a account just so I could talk to u andre, anyways, i love dwarves vs zombies, and so after all these days of playing, i decided to make my own, i rented a server just to make dwarves vs zombies, with your plugin. Recently i have ran into lots of problems, so i hope this isn't too much.

    first problem 1. the dwarves vs zombies folder has a config file and a config folder. config folder contains a default folder with the same files as the main folder, which now makes me have 2 configs, which one do i configure?

    second problem 2. when i was following your setup steps to creating a dvz map for 1.7 and above, i had some major problems. so i typed in "/dvz_location -1 dwarves spawn" just like you said on the setup, but when i pressed enter all i got was "/dvz_location <GameID_or_-1> <team> <spawn/monument>" everytime i get that, and if i tryed another command such as "/dvz_createworld test" it would still give me a line on how to make it, "/dvz_ createworld" I don't know what to do!!

    These are my only problems, and also i have a few questions. first of all, is a monument a shrine? and how does it do the enchantment table thing, and can i have the assassin instead of dragon? and how if i wanted to play the old dwarves vs zombies?

    I believe that during my process of creating this dwarves vs zombies server, i will encounter alot more problems, since this stuff is fairly new to me.

    I want to thank you so much for just trying to make this successful plugin and i appreciate your work here, and it would be alot easier if i was aloud to contact you.

    feel free to add me on skype, if not maybe email?

    Skype: johnhong2012 email: [email protected]

    Thank you so much, hope to hear from you!

    PS. If my server works, i will be mroe than happy to donate 10-20 dollars to you.

Which Disguise Plugin would you want DvZ to use?
