    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.
