Kits are groups of items and effects that can be given to players in various ways. There are many types of kits, and they can be packaged together in any combination.
Kits can be given an
id attribute, which is used to refer to them in other places.
Kits can contain other kits directly, and can also inherit items from other kits through the
Some types of kits are removable, meaning that the kit can be automatically taken from the player as well as given. When used in certain contexts, these kits will be automatically removed from the player at an appropriate time. This will be noted in the documentation where applicable.

The effect of the
force attribute depends on the type of kit it is used with:
conflicting items or armor will be replaced instead of smartly merged & repaired,
health & hunger will be set instead of only increased,
and potion effects can be replaced with the same effect at a lower level or shorter duration.
In the example above players from blue team will get a blue helmet, players from red team will get a red helmet; both teams will get the items from the spawn kit. The spawn kit contains a 5 second healing potion to help prevent spawn killing.
Item & Armor Kits
Kits can place items in specific slots of a player's inventory, and equip them with armor. See Items & Armor for details.
Item kits will replace any items in the player's inventory in slots present in the kit, but they will not alter any other slots.
If you want to guarantee that a slot is empty, put an item called "air" in that slot. You can also clear the player's entire inventory
before applying the kit by using the

Attribute modifiers can be applied directly to players through a kit. Modifying attributes in this way, instead of through an item, is a simple way to ensure that the player cannot avoid the effect of the modifier.
The only way to remove an attribute modifier is by removing the kit that applied it. A kit cannot affect a modifier applied by a different kit.
