:bulb: Updates: Pre-Release 0.3.0

Want to customize your player class by offering a diamond sword with Sharpness or Knockback? Now BlockyArena supports item enchantments for the player class system! So offer some enchanted items to your player classes and make the combat more intense!

  • support retrieving the enchantments of an item
  • prevent players from taking away arena-only items on quitting

To create a player class, put the kits in your inventory and type /arena create class <name>. Your inventory will be saved for that player class, so players will be able to retrieve that inventory by typing /arena getclass <name>. If any of the item is enchanted, players will get the enchanted version of it as well.

Possible to move their current inventory elsewhere and give them the class kit when the game starts? Then when it’s finished, give them their stuff back.

Right. I’ll definitely implement this functionality soon. Thanks for the suggestion!

Is there a reward system when winning? Also something cool to think about adding would be point system.
Each time you play in the arena you get a point which when you have so many points you can unload classes/kits to use in the arena. I don’t know if that makes sense.

A reward system is something I really want to take into consideration, but right now have a low priority. However, it is possible to set permission for some advanced classes so that only certain group of players can access them. I’ll let you know when I have a more concrete plan on the reward system. :wink:


Oh something else that would be awesome would be a champion system. So when someone wins they are considered a champion and the person with the top wins in the arena becomes the boss or champion and when you kill them you get a bigger reward. Something along the lines of that. Just a thought.

I dont know if it is possible but since my server is on peaceful I wwas wondering if it was possible to stop the fast generation of hearts in the arena

Will it work normally on SpongeForge 1.10.2?

Great idea! I’ll try to come up with a way to implement this.

I’m not sure about this cuz I haven’t study the documentation on healing source yet. I’ll let you know if it is applicable :slight_smile:

BlockyArena works fine on 1.10.2 as well as all versions that come after it, but mod items may not be supported yet. Currently only vanilla weapons are recommended for creating player classes.

Got it :wink:

Is this still being developed?

Hi Verildan, I’m constantly working on this plugin so yes there will be updates rolling out soon. Issues and suggestions that I’ve responded to in this thread will likely be addressed in the next update. Stay tuned and thanks for your interest :hugs:
