    @ARavinMadMonkey: Go

    Yeah in the next update, hopefully out in a couple of days, once I've tested it. You can backup the entire map, and once the game is over it will reload that backup.

    Is there any way for you to/do you plan to make this like the Survival Games, where the maps automatically roll back and reset? Or is that already part of it?

    @TheFluffey: Go

    1) You can enable coloured wool heads with wool helmet: true in the config file. I've just had a play around with coloured tab list names and it works with a small fix, so I might upload that version in a little bit. Unfortunately changing the player's name plates is very difficult without spoutcraft.

    2) Changing the vote seconds config option changes how long the vote period between games lasts.

    3) Kills, deaths and K/D is tracked for one game and at the end of the game it is displayed along with the top few players on each team. I also believe it is shown when you die or get a kill, I will add a command to allow you to manually read it. I don't know about web statistics, I guess I could keep a running total and save it to a file or something, you'd have to read the file with some server side scripting but it wouldn't be awful to do.

    4) Once you've joined a team, (use /jointeam to join the team with least number of players) if enough people vote for a new game of CTR it will automatically start. Once it has finished another vote starts, and the backup gets restored, again if enough people vote then another game starts. No one is forced out of their team between games, although I may add a finished option to remove disconnected players from the teams.

    @Mirosta: Go

    I am pretty tech savy, so I can figure it out. I do have a couple of questions, however.

    1. Does this plugin give players the colored wool heads and colored name plates? Also, it would be cool if the tabslist was colored to their team color, and players not playing would be white colored.

    2. Is there an in-between game period of like 30 seconds?

    3. Leaderboards support? Something like /score? 1 kill = 1 point? Web statistics too?

    4. If players are cued to play, lets say /green or /gold or /random, they should stay in the cue and automatically be put into every game thereonafter, until they use the /leave command to cancel their choice.

    @TheFluffey: Go Only one game at a time but with the correct settings, yes, I hope to improve the automation soon, when I first coded it there were a few limitations with Bukkit, which made it quite hard to do.

    To automate it you need to add a new world or set the original world as the game world, you need to set where the two spawns are with /greenspawn and /goldspawn, add in the bedrock wall if you want it and then make a largish backup for the world with /worldbackup BackupNameHere then setup the config file with the Continuous Mode options set to enabled: True, finished options: Vote, ReloadBackup BackupNameHere

    If you need more details I can produce a written tutorial on this site

    @Mirosta: Go

    Is this plugin completely automated?

    @gummby8: Go

    The chest above sea level thing is to stop people from hiding the chest far underground, but I will add some config options when I update to the latest Bukkit RB.
