    Source Code:
    Inspired by the 404 challenge, this is a Spigot plugin that restricts your ability to be in sunlight.

    Every time you spawn, you're given a leather helmet with Curse of Binding, Curse of Vanishing, and Fire Protection. This gives you some time to gather supplies before you can shield yourself from the sunlight, but if you try to take it off, it'll vanish. This leather helmet gives you around 5 minutes to gather everything you need to live a good life underground, or return home.

    In order for the sun not to damage you, you must have equipped a helmet with Fire Protection which will take the damage instead of you. Levels of Fire Protection greater than 1 add an unbreaking effect, giving the helmet more resistance from the sun.

    If you can afford it, I'd really appreciate it if you bought me a ko-fi or two.

    You can get the latest build on the GitHub releases page.

    If you need a build that works with 1.12.2, you have to download a separate jar from the one listed here. You can find that file on the GitHub releases page. The name will begin with Sunfright_1.12.2

    Currently there are only three configuration options, but more will be made available as the plugin evolves. If you think something should be configurable, please open an issue!

    Default: world

    This is the game world you would like the plugin to operate in.

    Default: 2

    The amount of damage you want the player to take from the sun. If they're wearing a helmet with Fire Protection, it will take half of this damage rounded up to the nearest whole number. One damage is equal to 1 half-heart.

    Default: true

    Whether or not you get a helmet that protects you from the sun on respawn. It's setup in such a way that the helmet can only last 5 minutes in the sun and will disappear the instant you're safe from the sun.
