    @andypandy89 -

    Can you please comment on the new option for fill-populated-chests: false ?

    I am unable to get this to work properly - my populated chests are always randomized.

    Please read the Commands section above on this page. You can already allocate Skywars points via commands :)

    I'm still having an issue :/ Every time I start up the plugin with no problem, once I step on the pad to join it tells me that there is no schematics to load, but I just put one in there, any ideas?

    Want a fun minigame server? Want it to be fun and simple? Well come join us at SkilledCraft(Coming Soon)

    It's possible to add the console command to give score so I can use it to give my players points for voting on my server.

    Make sure you trim your schematic carefully. If you're using something like MCEdit, ensure that you've only selected the playable area of the Skywars map, otherwise you may accidentally put a huge number of chunks in your map schematic.

    Skywars Floating in the Void

    Hey Everybody! I was wondering why after every single skywars match, all the players are floating in the void for about 1 minute then are teleported to spawn. They all lag after playing a match. I have 4GB of ram allocated to the server. I am using a professional computer to run the server. It is not the computer's fault. If anyone could help, that would be great! :)

    To test out the server to see what I mean, go to
