Tower Defense X: This minigame is about surviving waves and hordes of enemies! Though you can't really fight by yourself for too long because you will get overwhelmed with the increasing strength and numbers of enemies! Therefore, you should build towers that will automatically attack enemies and help you with your fight! You can unlock new towers as you level up and progress. Build different towers and upgrade them to ensure that you can survive the waves! This plugin is highly inspired by Balloon Tower Defense (BTD), I tried to imitate it and add my own ideas suiting Minecraft!

Please be patient with early versions of the plugin as they may contain bugs or performance issues!

- You first want to set the lobby location by doing /td setlobby
so that when players do /td join they will be teleported there where they can select an arena to join!

- To create an arena, teleport to the arena world and do the command /td create <Name> <minPlayers> <maxPlayers>
This will create a new arena with your defined name.
Min players is the minimum amount of players required for the game to start the countdown. and max players is the maximum amount of players the arena can handle at a time! The arena is considered Single player if the maxPlayers value was 1.

- Now you can set the waiting lobby for the arena using the command /td setlobby <Arena>. This is where players will wait for the arena countdown to finish and they can vote for difficulty or equip classes there.

- Then set the location that the players will teleport to when the game actually begins using /td setspawn <Arena> (This should be inside the map)

- Now you need to setup the enemies path, go to the location where enemies spawn and type /td addpath <Arena>. then go for the next point that they should move to and run the command /td addpath <Arena> again. The last path added is the location where if an enemy reaches it the players health goes down. Incase you made a mistake while adding paths you can delete the last added path with /td deletepath <Arena>. You can also check the paths added using /td showpath <Arena>.

- Finally, you need to select the central blocks of towers. Basically the blocks that players have to right click to open the tower builder menu and build a tower there! To do this, use the command /td buildingarea <Arena>. This will give you a tool that when you left click a block with it you can make that block a central block.

- And finish! You just have to enable the arena in the arena editor (/td edit <Arena>) and hit save!

- You could also use the worldmanager commands to backup your worlds just incase anything went wrong :)

- If you want to make all players automatically join tower defense when they join the server you need to enable bungee mode in config.yml! If you have a bungee cord and a lobby system, This plugin will only be on your game server and NOT in your hub server, if you want to join through signs from your hub server, then you need to have a plugin such as TeleportSigns in your hub.

- Using bungee mode, if you have 1 arena setup then players will automatically join that arena once they join the server and when the arena finishes the server will close! If you had multiple arenas in the server then the plugin will simply run the command /td join to put all players in the lobby where they can select an arena! This also prevents them from leaving the lobby and there is no restarting done here!

- To create tower defense signs the first line must be [ td ] without the spaces

- To create a lobby join sign the second line should be 'join'
- To create an arena join sign the second line join be 'join' and the third line should be the arena name

- To create a leave sign the second line should be 'leave'

- To create an autojoin sign the second line should be 'autojoin', additionally you can specify if you want the autojoin to look for singleplayer arenas only or multiplayer arenas only by writing 'singleplayer' or 'multiplayer' in the third line

- To create leaderboard signs the second line should be 'top' and the third line should be the stat name, example 'kills', 'wins', 'games_played' etc...
and the fourth line should be the rank you are looking for! If you want to display the TOP player (rank 1) then write in the fourth line '1'


This plugin works from 1.7.9 and upwards! But it is mainly designed for 1.10! You may encounter some issues in lower versions for example, in lower versions there is no option to disable collision and therefore some enemies might block each other causing the wave to slow down.
Also enemies health bars don't appear correctly so disable them in config.yml

Using mysql is highly recommended as it increases the performance and protects you from some issues

Enemy movements are not normal! They make look a little stuttery and they can also look somewhere else while walking.

If you want any holographic feature, you will need to install HolographicDisplays! If you want to use the Holographic Stats feature, you will need to install ProtocolLib too otherwise the stats holograms will collide.

Current tower abilities are: multi-target, burn, lightning, farm, slow

There are some extra permissions!
towerdefense.createsigns to create signs
towerdefense.breaksigns to break signs
towerdefense.unblockcmds to be able to use commands while in game
towerdefense.globalchat allows the player to start a message with @ to be sent to everyone if the chat separation features are enabled in config.yml

If vault is enabled in the config, Leaderboards will not show 'Coins' as the player vault money, it will still display the player coins
