American Football

American Football is an attempt to make a sport plugin similar to the American Football sport.


  • /fb start -starts a football game
  • /fb over -ends the current football game
  • /fb create -creates a football field
  • /fb cancel -deletes the current football field
  • /fb join -joins the game


You can choose the names and colors of the teams and max team size, and how long the game lasts, in addition to a new power throw feature.

Creating a field:

  • 1. Type /fb start
  • 2. Mark an outermost corner of your field by left clicking the block.
  • 3. Mark the opposite outermost corner of your field by left-clicking the block.
  • 4. Mark the center of your field by left-clicking the block.
  • 5. Mark the outermost corner of your RED touchdown zone.
  • 6. Mark the opposite outermost corner of your RED touchdown zone.
  • 7. Mark the outermost corner of your BLUE touchdown zone.
  • 8. Mark the opposite outermost corner of your BLUE touchdown zone.
  • 9. Type /fb done.

Game Play

Once a player types /fb start, a 1 minute countdown will be started. During that time, players need to type /fb join to join the game. Their inventories need to be empty. Once the 1 minute countdown is up, everyone who joined will be teleported to the center of the field, and a slimeball will be spawned. If you have the ball, then you can right-click the air to throw it, and as soon as you run over the touchdown zone, then the ball is teleported to the center of the field and the team gets a point. You can tackle people by left-clicking on them. They will not be hurt, but they will drop the ball. When the game is over, the score is outputted and the ball is deleted.

Also, if a player is crouching when throwing, it will throw farther than normal, as determined in the config.


The only permission needed is Football.Admin to use any command except for joining.

To do:

Fix any bugs.

    Can you make a system so u get a reward everytime ur team wins a game? Seems kinda pointless not to have any scoreboards or tracking system or rewards.

    Why spout, it isn't a better platform, people must download another client and people don't like that.

    Wondering if you could maybe make a plugin where a snowball can be thrown and when it lands, it is dropped as an item instead of breaking, or if you could point me towards one. I like this plugin, but I'd rather keep it simple with a ball-throwing plugin, if you could call it that.

    Tackling does work, but it can't be done in an area that doesn't allow pvp. I'm sorry about this, its something I realized later on, but I didn't have time to fix this.

    Why Shouldn't I? It's a better platform. Now, I understand it isn't fully out yet, but I'm making some plugins for it so once it releases people have stuff to use.

    I'm not sure if I plan on keeping the Bukkit version of this updated, but I have started porting this to Spout, so it'll be able to be used on that platform.

    Good job on the plugin but it has a lot of errors. If you talk, move your slot to something else in the hotbar, say a command, or place a block, then it all stops working. Also when using /fb create you must have a empty slot selected.

    Any plans to fix these? Any plans to allow multiple arena editing either?

    This plugin has a good start but could be a lot better.
