    - Information -

    I created this game mode because it was featured on two major german servers and unfortunately those servers got shut down, so the game mode disappeared. Feel free to provide feature ideas, bug reports, etc. on Discord or write me a DM.

    - About Falldown -

    After the game starts the players will get their items by flying through the ender crystals. After a player flew through a crystal it is claimed and cannot be looted anymore.

    When the players land on their spawns they are free to move in the grace period and can either craft powerful items with the ingredients they gathered while dropping on brewing stations or enchant their weapons and armor on enchantment tables.


    After the grace period ended the players will kill each other until only one is left and wins the game. The world border will close down on the players to discourage camping.

    In addition to that, after the grace period ended, the super crystal will be made available. It contains a custom powerful item that can be claimed. The claim will cause an explosion that damages and slows all players within range and all alive players will be informed which player claimed the crystal.

    - Features -

    I only list features worth mentioning here

    • Fully customizable game mode
    • Permission system with prioritization of higher ranks (lower ranks will be kicked if the lobby is full)
    • Source code available
    - Requirements / Compatibility -

    The plugin requires its own server running on 1.16+. If there are enough requests, I'll backport it to <1.16.

    The plugin is a standalone plugin, so it needs its own server. It also does chat formatting, so please use the ranks below with your permission system to show the player ranks in the chat.

    • /fd map <mapnumber> setdrop - Sets the player drop location (Preferably in an empty world, height is fixed)

    - Installation / Configuration -

    All information is provided within the config.yml, I know it's a lot, sorry.

    The first-time installation is:
    1. Drop the jar into your plugins folder.
    2. Start and stop the server to generate config files.
    3. Configure "config.yml" and "itemsettings.yml"
    4. Start the server and create your maps
    5. I do recommend setting a beacon under the super crystal for players to know where it is located.
    6. Create a backup folder containing your final world
    7. Enable the backup system for the world to reset

    - FAQ -

    I'll update this section as questions arise.

    - Test the plugin -
