    BukkitGames is the most customizable and flexible Hunger Games/Survival Games plugin for Spigot!

    Important Info:

    • Requires SQLibrary (min. v7.1).
    • This plugin is meant to be run on its own server (BungeeCord): It deletes the main world everytime the server starts!
      • Tip: Backup your world before using the plugin the first time.
      • BukkitGames is designed for a server network running multiple servers. The plugin will turn a whole server into a HungerGames tournament and will thus delete the main world on that server to create a unique experience each and every round.
    • Please always use the latest version of Spigot with this plugin. Also, BukkitGames is built with Java 8. (Check the plugin's version history for compatibility with older Spigot/Minecraft versions.)
    • The plugin will send plugin statistics to MCStats.
    • Note: This plugin is not the same one as on BukkitDev. The guy on BukkitDev just stole the name...

    Awesome Plugin! Pretty much the best hunger games plugin! Note for everyone complaining that it doesn't work. You must use Spigot 1.12.2 and not other forks of spigot (such as Paper). You can use ViaVersion to allow other versions to join

      If you download a plugin, please at least read the important info section, where it clearly says: "It deletes the main world everytime the server starts!"

    I can add potion effects to kits? best plugin i love it :D.
    pls compatibility new versiones of plugin with 1.8 and others :c
  7. JIR0_
    Version: 3.0.0
    Great plugin, however there are a couple big issues:
    1. Skript no longer supported. If you use the outdated Skript plugin it gives an error as it is too old for 1.12. If you use a newer version it doesn't understand the syntax of BukkitGames.

    2. Why can't admins break blocks before the game starts? Also, why do admins get their inventories removed? You say there is a gamemaker mode but there is no command to activate.

    This makes it impossible to add new kits with bukkithelper unless you remove the plugin and also makes it impossible to make special games because you can't build.

    Also, doesn't work on 1.12.2 for some reason, have to use 1.12.

      Thanks for the info!
      1. Will check what happened to Skript with the newer versions.
      2. Please check that the spawn-protection radius in the Spigot config is set to 0.

    The plugin is really great. But it has character problems. When I translate, I get an error like BLA_BLA_BLA. There are letters in my language such as "ı ç ş ğ ü İ Ç Ş Ğ Ü".

    didnt realise it deleted my main world and lost about 4 hours of work on it at LEAST have a warning this is a stupid plugin!!!!

      Author's Response
      Maybe just read like the first two sentences of the plugin page?
      It‘s red, it‘s bold, it‘s a warning - how about reading it?
      The plugin is designed to run in a BungeeCord environment...

    I like it very much. It woul be nicer, if something like: move to lobbyserver would be build in. And a discribtion for users at the spawn. So the can leave the game or know how to buy kits. It would be very great it after time, lava would come from the air - or dynamite - or creepers, etc.

      Hey, great idea! BukkitGames provides a great API and Skript events to extend the core game. :-)
