DeathSwap Core



Quote from SethBling:

DeathSwap is a PvP minigame that pits you against an opponent in survival Minecraft. After random intervals, you and your opponent will swap positions. Whoever dies first loses.

  • Fully automatic DeathSwap games
  • Multiple games at once
  • Customizable time between swaps
  • Lobby based or play with friends
  • Automatically creates game when 2 people join lobby
  • Random spawn location for each player
  • Make a join sign (pic)
/ds joindeathswap.joinJoin the lobby!
/ds leavedeathswap.leaveLeave the lobby/game!
/ds set <lobby/end>deathswap.setSet lobby and end spawn!
/ds duel <player>deathswap.duelPlay with a friend!
Admin permission node:deathswap.bypassAllow breaking of blocks in lobby
DeathSwap Payout

1. Set lobby and end spawn locations with /ds set <lobby/end>

2. Each player use /ds join the game or /ds duel <player> to play with a friend

3. Each player is teleported to a random location

4. On a customizable interval between 20 and 120 seconds, the player swaps locations

5. There is a 5 second protection period after each swap

6. Each player attempts to set up a trap so when the other player swaps they die

7. Whoever dies first loses!

    How do you have multiple games at once in different worlds? I am using multiverse

    @hlus99: Go

    What do you mean, "download these worlds"? There are no worlds here to download, if you want one, you'd have to download it, and if you need a step by step tutorial, just search it on google and maybe watch a video or something, and by the way, the thing that you are on a mac, changes nothing except for where your mc folder is located.

    I was wondering if it'd be possible to add multi-lobby support, so I could use a multi-verse and put each game on a different world. I was also wondering if you could make the protection period editable in the config, because I really don't like it. This is a great plugin though, thanks!

    @hawkfalcon: Go

    You should also put an option for multiple players in each game..when the teleportation commends they will cycle positions .
