Snow Ball Fight


Snow Ball Fight

This is an arena based snowfight mod.

    An awesome plugin but isn't compatible with 1.8.7 and probably some earlier versions too. I can't add the arena with /SBFAdmin add arena MyFirstArena because it just says "not valid snow ball fight command" PLease update it! It has so much potential!

    It seems to work ok on Spigot 1.8.3. /sbf play works but not /sbf play <arena>, No matter what, it says the arena is invalid. Would love to see an award system that's compatible with items, XP, currency, or commands. Winning team receives rewards, maybe even a bonus for the MVP/Ace with most kills. I don't know if it's possible but it would be cool to buy upgrades like how powerful a player's snowballs are or how far they throw. Great work. It's simple, which is what I need. Too many FPS plugins make everything so complicated. I set up a map in less than 5 minutes which I downloaded a schematic of. I'm building my own now. I wish it would auto protect however with a configurable radius around the arena border as well, but WorldGuard will do for now. I haven't tried it yet but if I set break/place block to true in the arena config, will it reset once the game is over? I'd like to add chests with extra items if possible but only if it'd reset.

    @Iggybigee: Go

    We might have an experimental version with CTF in it out somewhere in the next weekend.

    I'm from The Netherlands, so please excuse me for spelling mistakes.

    Hey There I Was Just Wondering, Do You Know When You Will Support Multiple Arenas, And When You Do, How IT Will Work? Thanks,
