These plugins were converted from an internal project to open source in a rush, so they are not yet well adapted for third party use. Improving this adaptation is a top development priority, specifically:

Getting Help

You may find some help on the PGM Discord, in these channels:

#help Help with running a ProjectAres server

#contributing Discussion about contributing to ProjectAres

Please keep in mind that this help is provided by volunteers and other users, out of the kindness of their golden hearts, and not as an obligation to you.


You will need a recent version of JDK 8. Old JDK versions do have bugs that will prevent the code from compiling. You will also need Maven.

To build everything, just run mvn clean package. This should download all dependencies from our repository and create several .jar files in the target directories of each module. If the build fails, please report it in Discord.

You can also download builds from our Jenkins server.


The plugins in this repo work only with SportBukkit and our custom fork of BungeeCord. They will not work with standard CraftBukkit or BungeeCord.

For a PGM server, you also need:

For tournament support on PGM, you also need:

And for a Lobby server, you just need:

For a Bungee proxy, you just need these two:


Direct dependencies between the Bukkit plugins:

The API plugin is used by all the other plugins to interact with the data model. It is split into interface and implementation layers, allowing different backends to be used. There is a built-in default backend that implements minimal functionality for running a standalone server. The api-ocn plugin is the backend implementation for the former Overcast Network.
