I'm holding a spleef Minecraft tournament for my students. So I downloaded the SuperSpleef plugin. Problem is I don't know how to keep track of score and see which of my students won... I want to award prizes, so it's important that the score is accurate. Is SuperSpleef the plugin I should use?
If you were to use the new scoreboard functionality introduced in the new snapshots you could keep track of how many times each player has died and remove them from the game without the use of plugins. By the end of the tournament there'd only be one player left whom you could then declare the winner. If you're not willing to use the snapshots (they're pretty much as stable as the actual releases) and the release of 1.5 is too far away then you'll have to use server plugins which I can't help you with cause I know nothing about them, sorry.
If you are interested in using the command blocks and scoreboard functionality I could always knock something together for you if you want?
You should probably be below the spleef zone to see which students fall below the ground. In the chat HUD, it will say
Student tried to swim in lava if there is lava below the spleef zone. The neat thing is that the chat orders the deaths from first death to last man standing. I would recommend the second option because it will be simpler to mark the death order from 1st to last killed.
