Vampire

Vampire is a plugin originally made by MassiveCraft.com, the same who made the popular Factions plugin. Currently we use a fork of the project maintained by Mowstyl on SpigotMC. It provides a fun addition allowing players to become Vampires, which have their own pros and cons. A lot of the info on this page is sourced from their plugin's page here and some things are customized for our server.

Dark Disease

To become a vampire, you must get infected with The Dark Disease. The dark disease is not to be confused with Vampirism. It will take about 3 day cycles for it to become Vampirism.
To contract the disease, you can use an Alter of Darkness, accept a blood offer from a Vampire or engage in combat with one (which can be accidental or intentional).
To stop the disease from progressing you can use an Alter of Light or Holy Water. The disease will not reset if you logoff or die, and the disease will not progress while offline.

Getting Infected

There are a 3 main ways to get infected. Combat, Alters and Blood offers. This section details each.
Combat: Combat with a vampire has a 0.3% chance of infection. If a vampire is trying to infect you it raises to 5%.
Blood Offers: Accepting a blood offer from a vampire has a chance to infect you. If you are offered 20 units of blood, you will get infected.
Alter of Darkness: Please read the Alter of Darkness section.

Alters

To use an alter, right click the alter's main block (Gold for Darkness, Lapis Lazuli for Light). Alters can be built by anyone. The plugin makes Dead Bushes a drop, and Webs can be crafted from string using a Custom Recipe. The Alter of Light also allows you to make Holy Water.

Powers

Being a vampire you have access to some unique and useful powers.

  • No fall damage

  • Faster walk speed
  • Breath underwater
  • Night Vision
  • Bloodlust
  • 25% more combat damage

Weaknesses

Naturally, vampires have weaknesses such as the following:

  • The Sun
  • Wooden Stakes
  • Holy Water
  • Cannot eat food

The Sun has an entire algorithm for determining damage. It is detailed as followed:
exposure = sun * terrain * armor – 20

  • Sun is calculated as a value between 0 and 100
  • Terrain is calculated as a value between 0 and 1 by looking at the blocks above the player all the way up to the roof of the world. This means we pretend the sun is always directly above the player. Most blocks are completely solid and will block all sun. But it would for example take 4 leaf-blocks to block all sun.
  • Armour is calculated as a value between 0 and 0.4. Each armour piece grants 0.125 and type does not matter. Armour cannot stop the process, but can slow it down a bit.
Temperature Effects
20% Nausea
30% Nausea, Weakness
50% Nausea, Weakness, Slow
80% Nausea, Weakness, Slow, Blindness
90% Nausea, Weakness, Slow, Blindness, Burn

Items considered Wooden Stakes are as followed:

  • Stick
  • Wooden Sword
  • Wooden Tools
  • Sign
  • Torch
  • Redstone Torch
  • Fence
  • Fence Gate

Holy Water will cause Vampires to have a 70% increase in temperature. They will go blind and catch fire if hit by two.
