Because of the inconvenience of its length I have taken the time to make a list of scenes giving information of what is where, however it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED YOU WATCH THE ENTIRE VIDEO to gain a sense of knowledge of the plugin!

- Normal arena with water/lava, one layer, etc.
- You create an arena like a normal arena above.
- Set red and blue spawns for the teams.
- In the config.yml, find "type" line of the arena (default is "type: standard"). Change standard to randomteams (teams or team also works). The line should read "type: randomteams".
You can set up arenas with multiple layers just like single layered ones (even ones with air in between). You simply have to define a thicker floor cube...
Add a low ceiling to your spleef arena. That is the easiest way to do it :-)
It should be possible to create such arenas by defining blocks that can be dug away and those that can't. Floor has to be big enough to contain all diggable blocks during the game.
Look at the
allowDigBlocks list in the config for ideas...
Define an arena floor and set
arenaFloorRepairsAfter to a value higher or equal to 0. With
arenaFloorRepairTick you can define, how many seconds pass until one block is repaired.
Using the "Ready" Option
The "ready" option is disabled by default. You have to turn it on! Set
useReady to on for your arena. The game will start automatically, when everyone is ready (use the
/spl list and
/spl info commands to see who is not ready yet).
If you do not want to start the game automatically once everybody is ready, set
readyAutoStart to false.
Only-Admin-may-Announce Option for Spleef
If you want only admins to be able to announce new spleef games, do the following:
- Set option
- Set permission
simplespleef.announceto false for "normal" players.
- You might also want set the config option
spleeferStartto false, if only admins shall be able to start a game.
Why can't I dig my Block X during the game in an arena
Most likely, the material is not in the "allowDigBlocks" section. To add glass to the diggable elements, add a line "- GLASS" to allowDigBlocks.
Materials, Block Names and Ids in SimpleSpleef
Materials can generally be referenced by name (see Bukkit material names) or numeric id. The full syntax is:
MATERIAL is mandatory and either a name or number. The others are optional. Important note: If you use numbers for IDs and data values, make sure that you use an amount, otherwise SimpleSpleef will get confused about amount/material and material/datanumber.
Also, if you use single item ids (like 42 for iron block, make sure to suround them with ' - e.g. '42'. If you forget to do this, Bukkit will interpret the value as integer and bug SimpleSpleef...
- '35' = all types of wool
- 1:35 = all types of wool
- 1:35:0 = white wool only
- WOOL:14 = red wool
- 35:14 = 35 blocks of iron ore (!!!)
- RED_WOOL (use WOOL:14 instead)
- 35 (surround with ' instead => '35')
