Because of recent events the future of Bukkit is unclear and the plugin approval process is paused. I will continue updating my plugins regardless and publish the downloads in links as the one above.


This plugin allows you to create your own faction. The more followers a faction has the more land the faction can claim. The risk for griefing is low in claimed land since only the faction followers can build there. Factions can forge alliances and declare themselves enemies with others. Land may be taken from other factions through war.

    Can you edit the faction plugin to replace the power system with a DTR (deaths till raidable) system.

    Here's how it would work. You would calculate how much DTR a faction gets by dividing its players by 2, for example, a 15 man faction would get a maximum of 7.5 DTR. That means when 8 people die, the faction goes raidable.

    When a faction is raidable, enemy factions can edit terrain, open chests, kill mobs, etc on there claimed land.

    DTR regenerates slowly, so if a faction got to 1 DTR, they could safely wait it out and they would get back up to their max DTR. A faction that goes raidable could do this too, but when they go raidable, there is a "DTR Freeze" where they stop regenerating, this should last about 2.5 hours.

    @xexcruz27: Go

    This happens because factions have a balance in money check the factions config to see if there is a way to turn this off, that is all i know about this.
