    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 !

    Set the timer in the configuration file.

    @Jytheguy: Go

    Sure, just set the timer to 1 and it'll start instantly once the minimum player count has been reached.

    @AAGInfamousJr: Go

    This could either be because you've selected "use-economy: true", but do not have a compatible economy-plugin, or do not use a permissions-plugin that has group support and is compatible with Vault. I just uploaded v1.1 yesterday, which fixes both these issues. If you do not want to wait for it, you can download the latest dev build (Please note that this has not been approved by the BukkitDev-staff, though).

    @AAGInfamousJr: Go

    Please dont spam the same question over again. Paste whats going on in the console when that happens. Also do you have a permission plugin compatible with Vault?
