SurvivalArena is a Hunger Games plugin built on the BattleArena API, therefore, BattleArena is required to be installed in order to use this plugin.

This is by far, the easiest, Hunger/Survival Games plugin to setup, with no config file editing at all. Everything can be done in game.


  • Freeze players on Join until game starts
  • Configurable Grace Period (No PVP) on game start
  • Configurable sudden death mode on last number of players, and or, last minutes of game
  • Lightning effect on players remaining in sudden death
  • Add chests to be populated in game with item_sets (No config file editing)
  • Create item_sets in game (No config file editing)
  • Each item in an item_set can have a % chance of spawning
  • Create Arenas in your existing world, or run fully automated on a separate server
  • Multi World and Multi Arenas support with per Arena settings
  • Rollback chests at end of game
  • Automatically add chests based on a WorldEdit selection


  1. BattleArena
  2. WorldGuard
  3. WorldEdit

  2. Restart your server

Creating a Survival Arena

Create the Arena

  1. Stand on the first Spawn Point you want and type /sa create <arena name>
  2. Stand on each of your remaining Spawn Points and type /sa alter <arena name> # (Starting with 2)
  3. Select a WorldGaurd region for your arena and type /sa alter <arena name> addregion

Create an Item Set

  1. Place items into a chest that you want to be in the item set
  2. Type /sa additemset <arena name> <item_set name>
  3. Left click the chest to create and save the item set (You can create as many item sets as you wish)
  4. Note that items default to a 100% chance of spawning

Set items to spawn randomly

  1. First type /sa showitemset <arena name> <item_set name> this will show you a list of items prefixed with an index number
  2. Type /sa setchance <arena name> <item_set name> <index number> <chance> where <chance> is a percentage, such as 10, 50, 77, etc

Adding Chests to the Arena


  1. Place chests where ever you want in your Arena
  2. Type /sa addchests <arena name> <item_set name>
  3. Left click each chest that you want to be populated with <item_set name>
  4. To change to another item_set, type /sa addchests <arena name> <item_set name>
  5. When you are done adding chests, type /sa addchests <arena name> done


  1. Create a WorldEdit region covering the area of chests you want to auto assign an item_set to
  2. Type /sa autochests <arena name> <item_set> <clear>

Where <clear> is either 0, or 1, depending on if you want to clear the contents of the chests being added to the <item_set>. This is useful if you already have an existing Survival/Hunger Games plugin that does not clear the contents of the chests at the end of the game.
