    Welcome to TheGrid - an open-world hacking adventure engine! Aim your antenna at the closest System and prepare to discover its secrets. TheGrid is a server-wide gameplay mechanic which allows server owners to configure an endless world of interconnected devices. With laptop in hand, players can venture across the map hacking other players and preconfigured devices. This new gamemode isn’t only a must-have for technology enthusiasts, but it requires zero hacking experience and is easy to understand.

    Note About Installation
    TheGrid is designed to utilize an entire server. Once it has been installed, server operators can create Systems, Outlets, and endless secrets and lore for players to find. Systems are simply preconfigured “servers” or computers that Admin can create. Each System has a name and a level, and it can be hacked by players who are strong enough to crack it. On the other hand, Outlets are devices which players must use to recharge their battery (more on this below). By using their Laptop item, players can hack into nearby Systems and other players to level up.

    The goal of the game is to install viruses, crash servers, and fight to survive in this new tech-savvy Minecraft adventure! Players are able to hack Systems in the world, as well as each other, and have plenty of opportunity to grow stronger.

    * TheGrid is a Minecraft game, and does not encourage real-world malicious hacking.

    TheGrid contains a variety of objects and items. Each of these is outlined below:
    • System: a non-player device which Admin can configure. These are hacked by players with the same level or higher.
    • Outlet: a tripwire hook, which players use to recharge their battery. Right click an Outlet with your Laptop to use.
    • Virus: an item which a player uses to attack another System or player. These can be purchased in the HackShop or unlocked by level-up.
    • Ice Cube: an ice cube. Used to immediately cool a player’s Laptop down after hacking. These can be purchased in the HackShop.
    • Traceroute: a device used to scan for nearby Systems and players.
    • Firewall: a device which all players have. Currently, when powered on, the Firewall provides an extra 5 levels of protection against other hackers, making it harder for them to hack you.

    TheGrid is intended to run as the only gamemode on a server. In other words, you should use a dedicated environment with this plugin. Installation is easy: just drag-and-drop into your Plugins folder, and start up your server. This game runs best on a city map, or in a world with lots of regions to explore.

    TheGrid depends on two major waypoints: Spawn and Tutorial. The Tutorial location is where new players are sent for their briefing. The Spawn location is the point to which they are sent once the Tutorial is over.

    To set each location, simply use these commands:
    • /thegrid setSpawn
    • /thegrid setTutorial

    # Tutorial Effects #
    # This setting will blind players in the Tutorial.
    doTutorialPotionEffects: true

    # MOTD Management #
    # Modify the server's MOTD from TheGrid
    overrideMOTD: true

    # The MOTD to use
    motd: "&8-[ &a&lTheGrid &8]-"

    Server owners also have the ability to customize most of the in-game messages as well. To do this, stop your server and edit the messages.yml file.

    /thegrid - the main command.
    *All permissions for this command are Operator-locked: players must be OP to edit the game in any way

    /gridspawn - return to the spawn location

    You should add teams. One team is a "Hacker Team" and the other is the "Guard Team" The guards have to stop the hackers from hacking their systems by pvping them and making the hackers get out of range. If you do add that feature. Make it so it announces the hackers name when they start the hack.
