Creating an Arena and Setting it Up

Creating a ColorShuffle arena isn't hard, but it does require some special considerations as far as placement is concerned.

  • Below the floor of the arena you should be able to drop into the void. the closer you are to the void the better.
  • The floor of the arena is constructed with 1 layer of ice with carpet on top of it.
  • The floor can be any color.
  • In order to set the position of the mats just place carpet in another color than the main floor color. If you want two mats that are touching each other then do them in different colors to keep them separate. Mats should be square, however, some other shapes may work as well. Feel free to experiment.
  • In order to create the sign with the current color on it just place brown clay blocks where you want it to change to the current wool color.
  • All arenas must have at least 11 plain floor blocks, 2 color mats, and 3 sign blocks in order to successfully create the arena. Once you are done creating your arena just do /color setup and follow the in game instructions!

Creating Join/Status Signs

To create a colorshuffle sign you need the colorshuffle.setup permission node. The format of the join sign goes like this:

  1. [csarena]
  2. arenaname

To display the players in an arena or are in the queue for an arena place a sign with this text on it:

  1. [csstatus]
  2. arenaname
  3. sign#


  1. [csstatus]
  2. test
  3. 1

Would show 4 players on the sign. You can use the numbers 1-4 for a total of 16 players being displayed.

Upon successful creation of a join sign it will show you stats about the current game. With the status signs they usually go blank unless players have used that arena after the last server restart.

Protecting Your Arenas

Although the plugin does prevent players who are in the current game from breaking/placing blocks, we have opted not to include any major arena protection in order to keep the plugin light. If players are going to be able to get to the arena outside of being in a game we suggest protecting it with WorldGuard or GriefPrevention in order to prevent griefing.


Q: Why can't I hear any sounds? I placed note blocks just like in
A: Although this plugin is based on the current code base as the one on some features have been removed, including sounds, cheat protection, and the Enjin Points integration.

Q: Is there any way for me to get the version with all the features that is on
A: At this current time: no. Those features are staying exclusive to

Q: Can I make an arena for you guys and have you put it on
A: You are more than welcome to create an arena and submit it to us! Just send me a PM with a link to either the world file or the worldedit schematic. If we like it and put it on our server we'll give you 100 enjin points to spend on our website.

    Is still working in 1.8,1.9 and 1.10 for anyone who still wants to use this even though it's no longer being updated.


    I had this issue too, turns out it just need a fresh install because some folders were changed and duplicated after updating.

    I need help ASAP! Everything is setup 100% but when players fall off the arena meaning they stood on the wrong color or whatever, they fall out the void and die. It normally teleports them back to their previous location where they were before the game started. PLEASE HELP ME ASAP!

    Hey Tux2,

    Bug Report: If users use /color join command, an one minute countdown starts. During this time players can use commands like /ma join and get to the mobarena. There they select a class. Not the countdown finishes, they get the wool blocks, but aren't telepotated (MobArena prevents it). Now they enter /ma leave and /color leave - and they end up with the Mob Arena Class inventory! (imagine it works for other minigames you join during the /color join countdown too).

    Fix: Can you forbid players to use other commands during the 60 seconds countdown? Alternatively: Can you change the time, the inventory gets saved from the moment ColorShuffle starts, to the moment when players enter /color join?

    It is a really great plugin, but some honest users mentioned this bug on my server, which makes it unusable for servers running other minigames as well.

    Or does someone know an other way how i can fix this issue? Maybe a third party plugin that prevents commands for a certain cool down time after an other command was issued? BTW: Everything else of the plugin, signs & co work great on Spigot 1.8.7!

    Thanks for you effort!

    Is there any way to integrate vault or something like that so it has a configurable amount of money paid when the game is won?
