Like the land management of Towny but think it's too tame? Like the PvP of Factions but nowhere for your players to build in peace? Introducing Vectron Wars - A Towny Advanced add-on that will bridge the gap between those two plugins and allow your builders to build without running the risk of having their beautiful creations destroyed, while still allowing your towns and nations to participate in the chaotic Factions-like PvP element.
When a nation declares war on another nation, PvP is turned on in the towns at war, the nations declare each other as enemies (prevents town spawn travel), and the two nations are given a defense value equal to the number of towns in the nation, and each town within those nations are given a defense value equal to the number of residents * 2 + claimed town chunks (configurable).
If a resident of a nation at war is killed by a member of the enemy nation, a defense point is taken off of the victims town. Once the town defense reaches zero, it gets added to the enemies nation, a defense point is taken off of the victims nation, and the victims nations balance divided by the number of towns in that nation (before the conquer), and added to the victors nations balance. Then assuming you have set up the permissions correctly, conquered towns must remain in the nation that conquered them until such a time as their kicked, or conquered by another nation (I recommend setting up a max tax on towns and nations to prevent abuse). Players may not capture a nations capitol city until all other towns in the enemy nation have been captured.
