    Still works good as every - definitely a player favorite. No bugs, errors, or obvious dev cutting corners. Much thought put into the sharing of maps. Nice work
  4. mfnalex
    This plugin is absolulety awesome! It begins with an automatic installation process that is accessible through clickable chat messages. After that, everything just works, is self explanatory and the translation is on point. This is probably the best plugin I have seen in all the years and the first I have donated for! Thank you and keep up the excellent work!!

    I just donated 10 euro to the dev. I don't like donating, I like purchasing. I don't like parkour. Why 10 euro for this plugin? It's THAT well done. I'm absolutely staggered that this plugin is free. Obelus, you have done an amazing job and please please please keep continuing to do your work. Our players are going to love this plugin for a VERY long time. It's the only parkour plugin any server needs. Ever.

    This looks to be an amazing plugin, cannot wait to put it on our network! Even just testing it was fun. Great plugin, love the community map idea.
  8. DireWolf
    This plugin is great! It is really easy for users to create their own maps to store locally or upload to the community. Thanks for all the hard work!

    Version: 2.11
    Amazing plugin! Everything works fine and smooth. One suggestion that could turn this plugin into more downloads simply make this plugin like "super minecraft maker" on MineCade ( just don't make it so players only build parkour but ANYTHING ) this would probably make it MUCH MUCH better and cooler ( simply add players to interact open chests... ) Amazing plugin!

      Maybe I will add more possibilities to make something similar to Super Minecraft Maker, one day. It will need a lot of thinking to make something cool!
