Information regarding UUID conversion and importing of old player statistics

From v1.3.0 on-going Paintball should be uuid-ready: it references stored player statistics by player uuids now, instead of player names.

Everything you need to know about upgrading, can be found in the changelogs of the latest uploaded files: here.
Also information about potential loss of player statistics can be found there.

In case you don't want to update just yet, make sure to install UUIDCollector: using it can reduce the amount of lost player statistics drastically.

Paintball is a fast paced and action packed multiplayer game.
In the classic TeamDeathMatch mode 2 teams compete against each other to bombard each other with snowballs. Once a player is hit, he's out and automatically leaves the arena and has to wait in the paintball lobby for his mates to finish and the next match to start. In the Paintball lobby you will meet all paintball players, choose your team and wait for enough players, or the end of the last match. When all conditions are met, a countdown starts which announces the next match.

Our main target is to keep this plugin easily integratable on any standard survival server without disturbing the survival feeling. You don't have to dedicate a whole server or world to this plugin!


Paintball is constantly expanding. There are more and more features added which have not much to do with the classic paintball game. But do not panic: According to your personal preferences you can modify or disable most things in the config.yml in the Paintball folder.

  • No client or server modifications or additional plugins are required !
  • Multiple Arenas: Build as many arenas as you like !
  • Complete freedom on what your arena looks like! As Paintball does not care about your arenas borders, your arena can have any shape and layout, as long as it is impenetrable. Simple build some sort of wall around your arena to keep your players inside.
  • Multiple Spawns: Paintball lets you define multiple spawn points for each team (red, blue, spectators) !
  • Automatic-Lobby-Arena-System: The Paintball lobby will automatically rotate through all your ready arenas. No need for administrators to be online !
    Limitation: Currently there can always only run one match at a time.
  • Easy: No complex setup needed ! Only 4 commands and your arena is ready and added to the automatic arena rotation !
  • Mechanism to strictly seperate Survival and Paintball and to prevent "cheating" in and with Paintball.
  • Easy and individually adjustable small Shop, where you can buy ammunition or other special and unique "weapons", gadgets and power-ups with the Paintball-Cash earned during the matches.
  • Ranking: Your players gain points to compete with each other !
  • Various statistics: examples are Points, Cash, Kills, Deaths, Hits, Shots, KD, Accurancy, Teamattacks, Wins and Defeats for each player, each arena and as a whole.
  • Toggleable Killfeed ! Turn it off if it spams you !
  • Most stuff is configurable ! For advanced information click here.
  • Much, much more!

If you are already in love with this plugin, you can take it right here and now!


Easy integration on every survival server!

Our main target is to keep this plugin easily integratable on any standard survival server without disturbing the survival feeling. Players shall not be able to swindle items or gain other advantages over survival players through Paintball.

Config explanation

Here you got some sort of overview what actions are taken to protect the survival-part of the server:

People with the 'paintball.admin' permissions node can bypass some of them.

  • Prevent commands that are not related to Paintball. So player can't teleport or use commands as a benefit.
  • Prevent breaking and placing of blocks.
  • Prevent dropping and picking up items, or dropping the armor.
  • Options to let players only join with full health or hunger so they can't escape during fights.
  • Options to save the players inventory when joining the lobby and restore afterwards.
  • Paintball inventory is cleared when leaving the lobby.
  • Turned off damage and starvation inside the lobby.
  • Many things can be disabled if they create problems with your other plugins.
  • Explosions do no damage to blocks.
  • Only Paintball players receive the Paintball messages. Your other players will not get spammed.

Additional information

Hint about version checking and stats collecting:

This plugin is checking for new updates. This can be disabled in the config with the setting "Server.Version Check".
This plugin is also doing some periodically stats tracking to which helps me to determine how many servers are using it. This can be disabled with the setting "Server.Metrics".
And the plugin is also sending some stats to to maybe prepare for some kind of later serverlist (a list of paintball servers). Currently those data are only stored in a non-public mysql table on my server.

  • This means that this plugin is sending some general information about the minecraftserver, like: ip-adress, port, servername, slots, motd, bukkit version, if server is in onlinemode and if it has whitelist enabled.
  • And some information about paintball like: how many players already played paintball there and if it is an paintball-only server (autolobby enabled) and if the server admin wants the server to be listed at some kind of public server list later, when it is finished.

→Those data are currently only send once every reload.
→ For people who don't want to share these informations with me :(you can en- and disable this in the serverlist config (plugins/Paintball/serverlist.yml) with the setting "post enabled"

    @fr233: Go

    I currently don't remember that, though the chances are good: Paintball is purely based on the bukkit api (not any server version specific stuff) and I haven't added any MC 1.8-only features as far as I can remember.

    @Bestbeastxd: Go

    Paintball is by default modifying the chat message sent and received by paintball players to include things like the rank prefix and colors, but only visible to the paintball players. The way Paintball is doing this, is by removing the paintball players from the chat recipients (so the server's normal chat processing does not send them the chat message) and then sending them the modified chat message manually.

    Your chat plugin is probably doing something similar: replacing the server's default chat handling with manually sending the chat messages to all players on the server. However, your chat plugin is very likely ignoring the (modified) chat recipients. Resulting in both plugins, paintball and your chat plugin, sending the message manually, and therefore the player receiving the message twice.

    I would ask the developers of your chat plugin to take Bukkit's chat recipients into account which might get modified by other plugins (like paintball in this case).

    The other alternative would be to disable the chat features of Paintball: You can disable the 'chat-modifications-only-visible-for-paintballers' feature in the config, this should fix the issue with duplicate message, however it will result in all players receiving the paintball chat modifications. If you don't want that you will have to disable the rank prefix and the name and message color features as well.

    I have a problem, I use a bungeecord chat plugin, like it would be for example essentials chat or other chat plugin, the problem is that when I get into the arena to play and I write it appears 2 times the same message :( What can I do?

    @TheIntelloBox: Go

    I have no estimate for that yet. However, to give you a very rough roadmap:
    I feel like about 90% of it is so far done, that, after testing, debugging and fixing of arising issues, it should be at least runnable.
    After that some more cleanup and minor restructuring will still be needed (in order to make it as usable as possible for future addon plugins). Also an import functionality for data from the old/current paintball plugin might be useful (though I haven't decided yet if working on that would be worth it).
    Then documentation has to be written, which I want to provide before the rewrite gets released.

    After that I can start thinking about new features. (However, the rewrite will include a bunch of new core features right from the start on, compared to the current version.)

    And at some point I might have to rewrite portions of the plugin again in order to prepare for a Sponge version of it.. :/

    And when the complete re-write is available ?

    @TheIntelloBox: Go

    I am currently not adding new features, because I am still working on a complete rewrite. However, I have no argument against adding an arena rating system, and more/custom information for arenas in the future.

  • Avatar of TheIntelloBox TheIntelloBox Jul 24, 2015 at 13:29 UTC - 0 likes


    Can you add a system of votes for the arena where the members could give a mark onto 10 or onto 5 for example and a system where we can see the author of the map... ? And where can we have the versions of development?
