    And just to be certain, the timer does not start when 4 players join the game?

    @krik942008: Go

    Use to paste your configuration file.

    @getnjr: Go

    You could set chat-handled-by-other-plugin to true in which case the plugin will not touch the formatting.

    @AndreeasG: Go

    Try editing these options on messages.yml. Remove {prefix}
    local: '&e[L] {score} {prefix}&8{player} &e&l> &r&7{message}'
    global: '&c[G] {score} {prefix}&8{player} &c&l> &r&7{message}'

    @soyisss: Go

    First of all, make sure you are using the latest version, which is v1.1.

    If there is a problem with your schematic it should say so in the console when you start the server. If that is not the case and it said "1 schematic loaded", open your configuration file and verify that the world/position of your lobby is present.

    Also, make sure that radius is set to 0 if you have a dedicated world for the SkyWars-lobby, or the desired radius that pressure plates should be triggered in if not.

    Hey, I'm fairly new to putting together plugins into my server. So I tried to put the SkyWars plugin on my server and everything starts to work until the /sw setlobby command is put into place. I made a schematic of my map (Its custom made and is pretty large compared to other Skywar maps) and the pressure plate never ended up working. I hope something helps! Thanks !
