Towerbuild to Babel


Towerbuild to Babel

Build yourself up to the gods - Towerbuild to Babel Plugin allows you to experience minecraft new. You fight against another team and the goal is to reach the plattform with a sand tower faster than your opponent. But be careful! There are different classes that want to prevent that.

Development Files - Change Log - Premissions - Video - Website


  • Scoreboard with the classes and the tower height
  • Config file to manage the different coordinates
  • Playing in 2 different teams
  • 3 different classes:
    • Mercenary - The Warrior with a Bow and a Sword has to protect the own base and the players of the own team.
    • Saboteur - The Destroyer has to attack the tower of the opposite team.
    • Builder - The Tower Builder has to collect sand and build a sand tower to the plattform.
  • Signs to join the event or to switch the classes
  • Multiple Worlds compatible
  • Plugin Metrics
  • Auto Updater Info Message

Upcoming Features:

  • Map resetting
  • Prizes after the Game
  • Game/Match delay before starting the game.


  • Download the offical Towerbuild to Babel map here: Map
  • You need 10 Players or more (5 in each team)


Extract the into the directory plugins and edit the config.yml if you use not the same map as linked in Requirements.


  • /startgame - Allows you to split the joined players into 2 teams and start the event.
  • /endgame - Allows you to end the event and spawn all players in the lobby.


This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version If you wish to disable this feature, you can do so by opt-ing out, which you can do in the config file under (Server_Folder)/plugins/PluginMetrics/


This plugin has a built-in auto-updater, which connects to BukkitDev to check for updates. If you, for some reason, wish to disable this process, you can do so by setting 'CheckForUpdates' to false in the config.yml file.

    @TheVnChecker: Go

    Hi, the plugin is compatible with multiple worlds but you can run my plugin just on 1 world.

    Best Regards oSLiD3Ro

    Hey Thunder,

    how can I setup multiple world in the config file. I have 12 world. So I must setup all worlds separate.

    I hope you can help me. Thank You :D

    another thing just unearthed. After exiting the game, enforced sand stacks of 20 persist. A relog fixes it.

    3) The spawn issue was just the HomeSpawnPlus plugin overtaking this plugins death spawning. For anyone else having the same issue, adding this to the HomeSpawnPlus config did the trick:

            - default
 - Lots of Plugin fun - Custom Worlds - Developers: FREE donor status!

    Saboteur issue was only that we blocked TNT perms for lower classes. Not an issue with this plugin.

    Map resetting, will you be incorporating it properly (or is it just not working for us) - or shall we fix a workaround ourselves?

    Hi thunder. I know! that's why I'm reporting them. To help you :)

    Also some other bugs from our attempt tonight, though this might be our server setup, I haven't looked in to it, but certainly something other servers would want to know about

    a) Sabatouer build perms, I didn't install the plugin , so I'm not sure what the config is. however, need to remember to check worldguard/MV setup, but thought to mention it here. Likewise chest access. Again, I mention it here as something for other users to confirm/watch out for, rather than a bug.

    b) Scoreboards are derpy. They show scores and then switch to zero without interference from players? I think the issue is that it doesn't reset on /endgame. It seems to go back to start ok when new items are added

    c) Scoreboard doesn't count the team numbers accurately.

    d) Towers don't reset between matches?

    e) floating sand, not obeying MC gravity rules

    f) Indiscriminate PvP? Sometimes builders can PvP other players? not sure when, or how.

    We really like the potential of this plugin, so happy to help continue test on our server. Let us know if there's anything you'd like us to try!

    Keep up the good work, and thank you!

    Server owner has this installed on If you want to help test on our server, you'll have to be 18+ year old (excluding plugin-dev ofc if that's the case here :)), and follow instructions at

    it's only a test though - so admins have to be available to TP you the world and start the game.

    Some feedback so far:

    1) It's not obvious what's going on! Some starter signs explaining the game would be nice (though I'm sure we could add them ourselves)

    2) the scoreboard keeps up even after the game has ended. Relog clears it.

    3) When you die you go back to the lobby world, rather than spawn? Hardcore?

    4) We could pick stuff up reliably. Sand was stacking in 16. I got to 20 sand and it stopped picking up. Other players (inc a builder class) couldn't pick up at all.

    5) Killed a player, and couldn't loot his stuff. Is that intentional?

    all the above could be server-specific rather than plugin, but we're happy to help test and feedback.
