Basic permissions

Basic premissions are default permissions for games. Default permissions can be found in config.yml

  Full-Games-Permission: "villagedefense.fullgames"
  Vip-Permission: ""
  Mvp-Permission: "villagedefense.mvp"
  Elite-Permission: "villagedefense.elite"
  Arena-Edit-Permission: "villagedefense.edit"
  Join-Permission: "villagedefense.join.<arena>"

Full-Games-Permission - Permission to join full arenas

Vip-Permission - Gives permission to donator kits, joining full games and getting 50% more orbs

Mvp-Permission - Same as Vip-Permission but gives 100% more orbs

Elite-Permission - Same as Vip-Permission but gives 150% more orbs

Arena-Edit-Permission - Permission for creating arenas, overrides disabled commands option via config.yml

Custom permissions

Custom permissions are used for giving your players more orbs in game. Nothing more, nothing less.

Warn! Using dots . in custom permissions will not work and will break permission, don't use them!

Custom permissions can be set up in config.yml:

  player-booster: 10
  vip-booster: 100
  staff-booster: 1000

player-booster - Gives player with this permission 10% more orbs on pickup

vip-booster - Gives player 100% more orbs

staff-booster - 1000% more orbs

Avoid low percent values! Remember that 10% more orbs are actually nothing because it's 5~8 orbs + only 10% of this value more so you won't see any significant increase, use higher values too see the difference
Permissions can be combined! Giving player permission player.booster and vip.booster will receive 110% more orbs on the pickup!

Kits permissions

Every kit has its own permission node to access it. Even if it's level kit, you can still unlock it getting its permission.


  • Archer kit permission - villagedefense.kit.archer
  • Tornado kit permission - villagedefense.kit.tornado
  • Heavy Tank kit permission - villagedefense.kit.heavytank
Info! Premium kits also unlocks with Vip/Mvp or Elite permissions and leveled kits are unlocked too when certain level is reached.
