A racing challenge - get as far as you can on foot!

Report IORace?

Racing minigame for a Minecraft server, on foot! The players start from 0, 0 and need to get as far as they can heading East, trying to reach the highest X coordinate possible. Upon dying, a players is sent all the way back at the start to try again. The highest position reached by each player is logged, allowing you to give out prizes at the end of the event.

This event is designed to run for multiples days, the players progressing at their own pace. For example, it could last a week or a month without a reset.

The progress data is stored in a YAML configuration file.

How to play

To understand how this is played from a player's perspective, see this guide on our wiki. Note that Merit Points are exclusive to the Creeper's Lab, you're free to implement your own rewards as none are built-in. The best score for each player is stored in positions.yml in the plugin's directory.

Setup guide

  • Download the plugin and place it in the plugins/ directory of the server.
  • Start and stop the server to create the configuration files.
  • Edit plugins/IORace/config.yml to set your settings, described below.
  • Set the spawn point of the world to 0, 0 (elevation doesn't matter).
  • To start a new game cycle, delete positions.yml, the player profiles and restart the server.

Why is this plugin reliable?

I use all of my plugins on my own servers, and I like my plugins to be stable, reliable and low maintenance. Breaks on version upgrades are not expected, but should they happen, they will be quickly fixed.

Support my work

If you enjoy my work, I welcome sponsors! I've been running Minecraft servers since 2011, developed several plugins and tools for server owners, and I'm now working my way through releasing many of them. Your support would go a long way toward encouraging me to put more time and effort into this, plus fix any issues that might be discovered over time!
