    Everytime me and my friends try to play skywars on my server we jump on preasure plates and it teleports us to the arena and then nothing generate's except the chests and the glass box. we then do /sw leave and re go back in and it generates everything then i cna start the game. How can i make it to where i can go into the arena and have it generate the first time.

    @Kikiminecraft101: Go

    You should delete your messages.yml file. You changed something, and it corrupted. Same has happened to me, about 4 times
