What is Manhunt?
Manhunt has become a very popular mini-game in Minecraft due to the well known youtuber/streamer Dream.

The game consists of two teams: hunters and runners.
The runners: also known as speedrunners, have to defeat the ender dragon in order to win the game.
The hunters: while the runners are trying to beat the game, these hunters are out there looking for blood. Their goal is to kill the runners.
If the hunters kill all the runners, the hunters win.

To spice it up, we came up with a “twisted” manhunt gamemode. Players vote for the twists they want (listed below) to spice up the game.
This manhunt game was created in collaboration with ExodusMC. You can join their server with the following IP:

Installation guide
  1. Make sure your server is 1.16. It may work on 1.13-1.15 too, but we haven't tested that yet, and some menus also have 1.16 items.
  2. Make sure you have WorldEdit installed (not FAWE!).
  3. Optionally install MultiverseCore and MultiversePortals to allow players to go to the nether and end. This will not work without these two plugins (unless you have an alternative).
  4. Put the Manhunt jar file in your /plugins/ folder.
  5. Restart your server, or load the plugin with any third-party plugin like Plugman.
  6. You're all set!
  7. Optionally, you can head into the config.yml and change some of the messages or change some menu items. If your server is not English, you can translate all messages in the config.yml.
How to create a game?
  1. If you are not in a game, you can type /manhunt to open the Manhunt game join menu. If you have the right permission (manhunt.hostgame), you will see an item in the right bottom corner (default an emerald) which you can click to create a game.
  2. This will open the game setup menu in which you can change your game settings, such as friendly fire, maximum amount of players, headstart length, daylight cycle, and more.
  3. Once you finished your settings, click the bottom right corner again to officially create and host the game.
  4. The plugin will now create the three worlds (overworld, nether, end) and optionally register them to Multiverse if installed.
  5. You will automatically get teleported to the game when it finished loading. Other players may get teleported to the game if you have this enabled in the config.
  6. Now all you have to do is wait for people to join and type /manhunt start or click the start button in the settings menu to start the game.
