    Villager Defense is a cooperative PvE round-based minigame where players fight as many rounds of monsters as possible to protect villagers.

    This Minecraft plugin was built from nostalgia for the old Minecade villager defense games. Seeing as it won't come back, I decided to make my own version. I tried to keep some elements like the original, but with a modern twist. The plugin was built with customization in mind so that each server running this plugin can have its own unique features and takes. Let me know what you think of it!

    Additional Recommended Plugins
    - A world management plugin (ex. Multiverse-Core)
    - A plugin to generate clean void worlds (ex. CleanroomGenerator)
    - A plugin to manage region settings (ex. WorldGuard)
    - WorldEdit (Strict dependency of WorldGuard, recommended for map creation)
    - ViaVersion (multiple Minecraft version support)

    - Create unlimited arenas
    - Endless customizability for each arena (ex. max players, spawn locations, sounds, shops)
    - Built-in kits that can be purchased with persistent currency
    - Leaderboards for player stats and for each arena

    Please refer to the wiki for more in-depth info. (although it's kinda broken rn)

    This is a good plugin with many custom settings.However,if the settings can be done be commands,it will become much easier for map makers.Also, I don't know why,but when I choose to create an arena,it won't display the sign-editing window.I tried 1.16.5 on both paper and spigot and they didn't work.So I'm wondering the reason.

      Hey, thank you for the feedback! That's a good point, I'll expand on the commands so that it's easier on admins and map makers. For your issue with the signs, I suggest you try it again with version 1.2.0 coming out very soon. If that's still an issue, please go to my Github and submit a report about it. Much appreciated!

    Amazing resource for such a small amount of downloads/ratings!
    Were you planning to replace crystals into a bridge Vault economy?

      Yeah, that's in the works for the future! For now, it's something managed internally. Thank you for your feedback :)

    It is a good plugin, but I would like it to make it work in other versions, it would be nice if it was from 1.8 to 1.17

      Thank you for the review! I've gotten a fair amount of requests for it, so I'll look to make that happen in the future. Unfortunately, that's not on the priority as I've got to release the production version, then add in critical Vaults and PAPI.

    is a good plugin, but do I need all the dependecy? I just installed all of them but the grass one not

      Hey, thank you for the review! The only dependency you actually need is HolographicDisplays. Other plugins are just recommendations to make the experience better. That grass plugin is just a niche case if you want to attack through grass, so feel free to ignore it.

    Thanks for the plugin. It would be amazing if this error was fixed.

      Thank you for the review! Would you mind filling out a bug report on the github page for this plugin? Additional context behind the issue would be appreciated so I can debug for future releases.

    A wonderful mini-game plugin! All GUIs are well-made and fully understandable for everyone to set up the game.

    It runs well on 1.16.5.

    I do hope that the permanent "diamond" can be optionally replaced with Vault balance which is synced with other places (so that players can earn credits outside and use those credits to purchase kits or mega for this game, I wonder if it is possible).

    Wonderful overall!

      Vaults integration can be a feature to be added later on once a production version is out.
