Basic permissions

Basic permissions are default permissions for games. Default permissions can be found in config.yml. You can edit them to your likings.

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

Join-Permission - Permission to join arenas

Custom permissions

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


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.
