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"

    Do you have any sign wall examples of a base lobby?

    I am not sure what exactly are you asking for, but here you can find some documentation on statistics (and simple command) signs which are available in paintball.


    Also, how would a player go about voting while in the lobby?

    Voting is enabled by default, once you have setup at least 3 arenas (Because the last played arena is currently skipped in the voting, and you need at least 2 ready arenas to choose between).
    Once voting starts it prints messages in the chat for players in the lobby, informing about the available vote options and how to vote for them via command.

    I am sorry, but this is not how this plugin works.

    This paintball plugin only offers you 1 lobby where all players can join. You can setup multiple arenas, but the lobby can always only run 1 match at a time. The players in the lobby can vote for the next arena they want to play (or an admin can force-decide the next arena if he wants.) If noone votes it is either rotated through the arenas, or a random one is picked (depending on the settings).

    There is currently no way to have 2 lobbies or run 2 matches at the same time with this plugin. :(

    This plugin was initially created with only 1 lobby in mind, because it was initially run on very small servers only, which barely have enough players to fill one match properly.

    I am however working on a rewrite of paintball for quite some time already, which will make it possible to setup multiple of these lobbies. You could then configure them to only play one arena all the time. But there is currently no near release date for that.

    Hey so basically I'm trying to setup 2 paintball arenas that people can play on using this plugin. It wasn't hard to create the first one, but now that I want to add a second one, it's a lot more complicated than I thought. I have 2 lobbies, they are each located behind glass next to each arena. The arenas are called PaintBall and PaintBall2. What I wanted is people can use a sign to warp to one arena and join it, or they can warp to another arena and use a sign to join that one. Instead, players warp to the arena they pick, and when they use the sign to join it; it's only a 50% chance that it will pick the arena they are in as the one for them to join. I've linked images below of the two lobbies and how I want them all set up. Since the plugin I beleive doesn't come with a sign feature, I'm using Server Signs to link the commands to the signs. For example, in the first arena i had it set as '/svs add pb join blue' or '/svs add pb join red'. I don't know how to differentiate the different arenas in those commands, and the plugin help doesn't really tell me. Maybe it's not possible to do it this way per arena; and if not, any tips on how to make this work cleanly would be very much appreicated. Thanks! ------ Config: ------ Images:

    @frizzbee30: Go

    WorldGuard protections shouldn't be an issue here. We are triggering mine/turret placement regardless of if the player can place a block there. The only reasons i currently see why paintball would not do that is if they are not actually holding the correct item in hand (ex. if they got the item not from the paintball shop itself) or if paintball thinks that the player is currently not playing (which can be the case if using the plugin CommandSigns, however they shouldn't be able to use the other weapons either then..) or if they run into a paintball limit (they should get a message then).

    @Cman5103: Go Do you have the arena protected by worldguard? Could that be the issue at all? not tried mine placing etc on ours, but the arena's are w/g protected if I recall, which I presume would create an issue. (it's a while since they were set up so I don't recall all the protection settings etc)

    I read, sometimes the Special Chars like äöüÄÖÜß are bugging around

    Special characters should no longer be a problem in the newer versions, if the file is properly encoded in utf-8.

    Regarding the error message: Make sure that your language file is actually encoded in utf-8. You can select the file encoding somewhere in notepadplusplus.

    Oh! Hi! Its me again, EPEffects :D

    I read, sometimes the Special Chars like äöüÄÖÜß are bugging around! So i created a 2. version of my german Translation of the v.1.3.3 without these chars

    Something else:

    I want to load your Plugin with my deDE Translation and get this error:

    [21:46:35] [Server thread/INFO]: [Paintball] Loading the specified language now: deDE.txt [21:46:35] [Server thread/WARN]: [Paintball] No second ' " ' found in line 48

    I downloaded the file from my server and checked the line 48 with notepad :

    WINNER_BONUS = "{winner_color}Gewinner &bBonus: &a{points} &bPunkte und &a{money}$ &bGeld!"

    What is wrong about this line? There is a second ' " ' in line 48

    Thank you, your EPEffects

    PS: Sorry AGAIN about my bad english ;) I can translate, but i am not good in writing such things in english
