Attention Skin / Map Makers!

Attention Skin / Map Makers!

If you would like to submit a new skin or map to us for use in the mod, send us a message or leave a comment for us and we will add it in the next update! Please make sure that anything you want to submit meets these requirements:

  • It must be an original skin/map, so we can credit the original creator; it cannot be an edited version of someone else’s content.
  • It must be hosted on a common skin/map hosting website, like planetminecraft or minecraftskins. We will not accept anything from websites with anonymous posters, re-posters, or from image-sharing websites.

If you are the creator of a skin / map featured in the mod and would like it removed for any reason, please let us know and we will do so immediately.

Heroes Available:

Each hero has a full set of armor, weapon(s), and a token. 

Hero Mobs:

Hero Mobs are monsters that wear and use heroes' equipment, attacks, and abilities. There are many customization options for them in the config to control what they attack, how they attack, when they spawn, what they drop, and more. By default, they have a higher drop chance of tokens and can drop their heroes' equipment; they are a good source of armor and weapons in survival. They can spawn naturally or be spawned in with spawn eggs. 



Each hero has a token associated with them. The token is used to craft the weapons and armors for the respective hero. The weapons are crafted with one token alone, whereas the armor are crafted with an iron armor piece with one token. Tokens are dropped at 1/100 chance from mobs by default (can be changed in config).

Minewatch Tab:

This tab can be used to find Overwatch maps, change your heroes' armor skins, and easily access the mod’s configurations. It can be found in the survival inventory and as a creative tab.

Map-Making Tools:

Team Stick: creative-only item that makes working with Minecraft teams easy.

Health Pack: creative-only block that heals when walked on and takes time to respawn. There are small and large Health Packs. They can be hacked by Sombra.

Team Spawn: creative-only block that players and mobs can respawn at. They spawn facing the direction of the arrow. They will also be healed and can access hero selection within the radius of the Team Spawn.

Death Block: creative-only block that kills mobs and players (in survival or adventure mode) that touch it. Can be used to mimic falling off the map.

Push Block: creative-only block that pushes mobs and players that touch it. Can be used to mimic roofs that can't be stood on.
