PaintWar Logo



Every player in the PaintWar arena has a random wool color, when you move you will "paint" a circle of colored wool on the ground. During the game you can get certain powerups by picking up special items, which help you or make it difficult for the others to fill an area with their color. Every game has a time limit which can be configured in the config. When the time is over, the blocks for every player are counted and the player who has painted the most blocks with his color wins the game. The winner can get a reward, which can also be configured in the arena's config! After a game is over, the floor will return to its original state.

    @cardosuphus: Go

    I will have some more free time soon and I'm also motivated to code again, so there will be an update for this in the near future!

    Hi I use this plugin on my minigames server and I was wondering would you possibly post the ip on this page and you can use it as an example server for people to try out how well the plugin works. Message me if you would like to.
