I don't really see what this does if you can just enable PvP on a server, or some it make it so only some parts are PvP? That would be kind of useful for my arenas that I have been planning.

If I understand correctly, you're asking why use this when we have regular PVP?

In my opinion this makes the Minecraft PVP experience more focused. You define warzones (arenas) anywhere on you server world and fights are confined to those areas. Within a warzone, only adversaries from different teams (teams are warzone-specific) can attack each other (unless you turn on friendly fire in the warzone-name.txt config file). Each team has a life pool, i.e. a bank of lives that its players consume when they respawn. When that life pool is empty, the next death causes that team's defeat. Other teams get a point and the warzone blocks are reset to their original state.

These are just some of the features which make the plugin useful if you want a quick and dirty team deathmatch-like experience.

Have a look at this post on the hMod forums where I give an example of how to create a new warzone.

UPDATE: check out the video above.

Yeah, but it would be better if it was only PvP in those areas. Maybe you could add this to the mod? since there are usually no planned wars apart from arena matches (and of course wars, but i rarelly see planned wars that fight in a designated area), raids are much much more common. Perhaps make it like im suggesting, however, raids are so popular in another server that I play on that we would loose popularity if we turned pvp off. Maybe its not as bad as i thought, but ill read a little more about it when i get off this iphone and onto my comp

Thanks for the feedback. I'll just quote something I said on the hMod forums:

For now, you need to have global PVP on. Once you enter a warzone, you can't attack anybody anymore until you join a team. Then, you can only attack people from the opposite teams. I added a friendly-fire setting to the warzone-zonename.txt file. However I just tested this and it seems to be broken. :/ Down the road, I'd consider adding a global "pvpInWarzonesOnly=true/false" setting in war.txt so that warzones can become the only place you can do PVP, since that seems to be a concern for a lot of people.

Hi everyone, I put together a new website for the plugin: war.tommytony.com. I hope this'll help to centralize everything War-related. Lemme know what you think.

War v0.3 is coming along nicely: I'm porting the plugin to Bukkit and I'll tweak a couple of features. It should be out soon after the first official release of CraftBukkit.

Looks awesome :P
My server would be much too small for this, so I hope to see other servers using it so I can join the fun :>

Actually, the current setup (v0.2) is perfect for a small private server and may be a bit too unwieldy and unstable and spammy for a big server. I definitely haven't tested for performance yet, which is critical on big servers.

Hey!

This plugin is great, it's just exactly what minecraft needs!!! In my opinion the best plugin I've seen! Can't await v0.3 :)

Keep up the great work, thank you!

Now, would it be possible to make 1 team NPCs?

So it could be Red vs Creepers etc?

And extending  on that idea, what about letting all NPC teams be hostile, so you can make a feathery war of chickens VS Zombies...

Just thought that I'd stop by and say im DYING to try this on bukkit! It would fit perfectly into our newly built colusseum!

Really dying! get a move on  :D

I'm not sure if I'm being a noob and it's already been implemented somehow but I have a request. If there's anyway you can "dual someone" and chat request/challenge another player to a dual that would be amazing. I know a lot of heat goes on in servers sometimes and it'd be nice to "/challenge Player" and tp to a zone with preset items and 1 life and go bananas. Just a thought that I had. Great mod!
