As this plugin has turned into more than just a challenge plugin I am introducing a pro version that has more customization and optimization for bigger servers and of course more content as a bonus. The development will still continue for the free version but at a slower rate and eventually, some pro features will drop down to the free version. Some of the pro features include:
-Block stability mechanic where you can configure different blocks and materials to be resistant to disasters and actually build survival bases
-Regenerating worlds, blocks damaged by disasters will naturally regenerate over time (Fully configurable)
-Custom mobs naturally spawning in worlds and fully configurable rates in the config
-New disasters such as Solar Storms
-New custom mobs, items, and enchants
-Serious amounts of customization in the config for optimization and survival features
-And much more
What's new in V9.2?
-Disaster tips for each disaster
-Lots of bug fixes
-New commands to summon mobs and disasters at coordinates
-Some new config features
-Blizzards now don't freeze strays and polar bears
-Each piece of leather armor now nullifies some damage from blizzard freezing instead of just the whole set
Adds naturally occurring disasters to the game to make it more challenging. This is a really hard survival challenge and is really difficult. Most disasters have different levels of severity (levels 1-6).
Check out these awesome videos of the plugin!
Check out the video above to see some of the pro features!
There are currently 4 difficulty levels in the plugin:
Each difficulty level has its own settings (Time, Offsets, Chances, Etc.) and each world has its own difficulty level that can be changed with commands. Custom difficulty overrides the values with your own custom settings in the worlds.yml file, every time an admin switches worlds they will get a message notifying them of the world's difficulty level (This can be changed in the config).
(Level 6 disasters can be disabled via commands or config if desired, level 6 events can cause major lag)
Every natural disaster has custom death messages but when the server is restarted or reloaded will clear the memory of old earthquakes and sinkholes, mobs will only freeze above surface level during blizzards to prevent major lag.
Keep in mind that this plugin was developed for 1.16 and above so earlier version support may be very laggy!
This plugin now supports multiple languages, simply in-game use (/disasters language <language>), and most things will be translated. The languages currently supported are:
- Chinese (Translations by KPC123)
I have a discord server you can join if you need any help with the plugin or API to get fast support. You can also make suggestions for future updates! https://discord.gg/MhXFj72VeN
This plugin has a soft depend on world guard so you can protect your regions, world guard is not required and if you use world guard but do not want region protection you can disable the feature in the config. If world guard protection is enabled and you have world guard installed then disasters will not occur on or damage any regions regardless of flags. WARNING disasters might damage regions if they are not expanded vertically.
This plugin has a soft depend on CoreProtect so you can roll back any damage caused by disasters under the user "deadly-disasters". CoreProtect is completely optional and the plugin will work just fine without it. Note that blocks damaged after a disaster will not be logged by the user "deadly-disasters" such as leaves decaying from missing trees. Entities that are killed by disasters will not be rolled back as the API does not support this.
This plugin has a soft depend on Towny and will not damage any claimed regions that are expanded vertically!
This plugin has a soft depend on GriefPrevention and will not damage any claimed regions.
This plugin has a soft depend on Lands and will not damage any claimed regions.
This plugin has a soft depend on RealisticSeasons so you can control the temperature and which disasters spawn on which seasons. When the plugin detects RealisticSeasons a file will be created to control the settings (seasons.yml) in the same folder as the config.
This plugin has an accessible API which you can use to start disasters or listen for disasters in your own plugins, the documentation is here.
Custom disasters are the newest feature in V9.0 letting players create their own disasters with a variety of tools. Players can then submit their disasters to the discord which then if verified will be added to the in-game disasters catalog (/disasters catalog) for anyone to download and install! This link leads to the guide on how to create your own custom disasters. There is fast and good support on the discord too if you need any help.
[PRO] Regenerating Worlds:
Blocks destroyed by disasters can now automatically regenerate over time, keep in mind world's disaster difficulty level must be set to CUSTOM. In the worlds.yml file you can configure the regen delay after disasters and in the config you can modify for each disaster the rate of regeneration. Keep in mind that this feature is new and in beta so some blocks may not repair and some may even duplicate! Use at your own risk and please report bugs to the discord.
[PRO] Block Stability:
You can configure in blocks.yml the resistance of materials and blocks to disasters, many materials are already pre-listed, and if a material you want is missing just add it in with its F3 in-game name. Block strengths vary from 0.0-1.0 where 0.0 means it will always be broken and 1.0 means it is indestructible for disasters.

Fur dropped from Yeti's, can be combined with any chest plate in an anvil to apply or upgrade the Yeti's Blessing enchant.
An ancient curse of lost fire magic that can be applied to a netherite sword. This enchant is only found on the ancient blade weapon that can be crafted. When the wielder of this weapon left clicks the air it unleashes a burst of ancient fire magic that set ablaze all entities in its path.
[PRO] Yeti's Blessing:
By combining the fur of a deadly beast from the arctic to your chest plate in an anvil you imbue it with special properties. Every physical entity attack has a chance to activate a yeti roar that will knock back and freeze all entities caught in its radius. Yeti's blessing can be applied to any type of chest plate and wearing armor with this enchant also provides protection from freezing in snowstorms. There are three levels of yeti's blessing each gained by combining more yeti fur to your chest plate, higher levels mean increased radius and chance of a yeti roar activating, also provides increased protection to snowstorm freezing (2 pieces of leather armor at level 1, +1 piece of armor per level after, full protection being at level 3).
