If you find a bug check my discord first as it may have already been patched there.

The goal of this plugin is to add PvP quality of life changes, balance changes and to fix exploitative raiding methods.

  • Now PvP servers can have floating damage text turned on because you can prevent showing other non-tribe damage.
    • GameUserSettings.ini needs the following for the plugin feature to function: ShowFloatingDamageText=True
  • Prevent C4 from being placed on or within X foundations of friendly structures to either prevent self harm or prevent raiding exploits with platform dinos using tunnels to detonate C4 on enemy structures.
  • Further restrict structure placement range with X foundations of enemy structures. This can be set to limit every structure or a select list of bp's.
  • Want to prevent placing transmitters on platform dinos which are used to cheese boss fights? Now you can with the platform placement prevention list.
  • Control platform structure counts per platform blueprint.
  • Prevent cyropod glitches when teleporting.
  • Removed Boss Arena cheese techniques. (See below Boss Arena Status)
    • No grappling in boss arena
    • Prevent certain dinos from being used and deal with the dinos in multiple ways.
  • Prevent Tek Dino breeding resource farms.
  • Auto Destroy Beaver Dams after leaving the inventory after X seconds
  • Auto Destroy glitched fertilized eggs from dedicated storage/transfer tools (AKA Level 1 Eggs)
  • Limit Alliances to total tribe members across the alliance.
  • Alliance cooldown when leaving an alliance to prevent hopping alliances
  • Plus More
Boss Arena Status:
  • Verified Working:
    • The Island, Crystal Isles, Valguero, The Center, Ragnarok, Scorched Earth, Abberation
  • Partial Support:
    • Genesis (Final Stage of the mission is supported only)
  • No Support
    • Extinction (Does not have normal arenas)

RCON/Console Reload Command:
  • PvPPlus.Reload - This allows you to make config.json changes and load in the changes you made without restarting the server.
