PaintWar Logo



Every player in the PaintWar arena has a random wool color, when you move you will "paint" a circle of colored wool on the ground. During the game you can get certain powerups by picking up special items, which help you or make it difficult for the others to fill an area with their color. Every game has a time limit which can be configured in the config. When the time is over, the blocks for every player are counted and the player who has painted the most blocks with his color wins the game. The winner can get a reward, which can also be configured in the arena's config! After a game is over, the floor will return to its original state.

    Please add team support :D. Also I think a cool feature would be a shop in the game where u can buy different guns with money obtained from kills/hits.

    Hey, sorry but I'm currently not able to work on this due to my lack of time :/ However I have holidays in about a week and I might be able to work on it then! Don't worry I didn't forget PaintWar ;) By the way, I'd appreciate any suggestions on powerups, gameplay and new features!

    Sorry, but I don't really know that since I'm pretty busy again and I didn't even start to work on it. However the work on plugins which had priority is now done!
