Server set up

Requires Multiverse-Core
Optional Multiverse-NetherPortals (if server would contain multiple nether or end worlds)
Optional Multiverse-Inventories (see below)

This script has been designed to be used on a server with a lobby world plus a set of 3 worlds for the hunt game (1 for each dimension). The hunt worlds will be created automatically if they don't already exists.

Most likely, Multiverse-Inventories will be required to separate the game inventory from the lobby, in which case the 3 game worlds need to be a group which shares "all". Optional share "last_location" also needs to be enabled so players can join back to the right location after disconnecting. The re-joining after disconnect logic assumes that the server is set up to initially teleport a player to the lobby world on join.

Requires the following noted cuboids:
hunt_runner = the portal through which the runner(s) join the game (should not be in hunt world)
hunt_hunter = the portal through which the hunter(s) join the game (should not be in hunt world)

Requires the following noted locations:
hunt_endlobby = Location to teleport to when leaving hunt or when hunt ends

To note a location, stand in the location and use command:
/ex note <player.location> as:<noted name>
To note cuboids use the Denizen Area Selector Tool with this command:
/selnote <noted name>
Or if you have WorldEdit & Depenizen installed, you can use the WorldEdit wand and command:
/ex note <player.we_selection> as:<noted name>
