About Survival Arena
Survival Arena is a plugin that spawns a Battle-royal style game, where players must scavenge for equipment and fight to the death, all while staying inside of a shrinking, non-radiated zone.
The plugin spawns a large play area high in the sky and inherits the biome type from the ground below. This means that if the area is suspended above an arctic biome, all of the rocks, trees, logs and bushes will be spawned mirroring that biome type.
Players are teleported into the center building when they join, and once the game begins, they must loot containers to gear up to survive. Players are returned to their original locations when they leave the event or respawn after dying at the event.
Server owners can change or add loot profiles via the config. The plugin will select a random profile when the arena begins and fill the loot containers based on your specifications.
It comes with 2 default loot profiles:
- Primitive - spears, melee weapons, bows, crossbows, burlap equipment, revolvers etc
- GunLoot - more modern weapons.
The plugin uses EventHelper to run automatically, handle joining and leaving, and will allow players to vote to start the game.
Admins can also add additional trees, bushes, logs and loot spawns to the arena via command.

Please note that the map file name needs to contain survivalarena or it will not allow the getarena command to work. Also I will not be offering support for this, so use at your own risk.
