AntiCreeper logo


  • Tired of rebuilding every building in your server, because those green things ruin them all the time?
  • Tired of filling in all the explosion-created holes? Wish you could tell people to do it themselves?
  • And also you hate the mods which make the creepers just walk around without doing anything to the players?
  • Do you have a nether paradise? Do you hate the fireball spitting ghasts or players exploding beds?
  • Too much grief with TNT?
  • Those missing or randomly placed blocks from endermen triggering your OCD?
  • Having fun with fireballs but don't like the fire? Or want creepers to burn stuff too?
  • That huge hole left by Wither boss got you down?
  • AntiCreeper config.yml too confusing for you?
  • Want to spawn an Enderdragon but don't like the wholesale destruction?

If You say yes to just one of the questions, then this plugin is for You!

This plugin by Filbert66, though its roots come from @Rothens.


  • Cancels creeper environment-destroying behavior.
    • or optionally allows it but can leave 100% of destroyed blocks, allowing easy rebuilding.
    • and/or configure a height below which it is allowed, or alternatively above which it is allowed.
    • and/or define a list of blocks that are (the only/NOT) affected
    • and optionally disable sound & smoke or player damage, if you really want to
    • and selectively configure which entities receive damage or not.
  • Cancels TNT, Fireballs, Wither explosions, ender crystal (NEW), unknown explosions (from other plugins) with all of same options as for creepers, above
    • optional different configuration for wither skulls and TNT minecarts.
  • But can damage the players in all cases! (you can now control this, too)
  • Cancel various enderman behaviors, including block pickups, or just put-downs.
    • with configurable white/blacklist!
  • cancel damage caused by lightning (for you spell-makers out there).
  • disable Wither & Ender Dragon moving through and damaging blocks
    • both support configurable blocklists
  • Detailed configuration now available!
  • Kind of multi-world support; the same configuration applies to all listed worlds.
  • In-game commands to query, set, and save configuration items
    • allows testing config changes without making them permanent
    • save configs to disk without every manually editing config.yml.
  • disable exploding beds in the nether
  • Override explosion power to strengthen/weaken each explosion type
  • Option to throw destroyed blocks a distance based on distance from explosion center. Kinda fun, but can lag on chained TNT.
  • NEW in 4.15: Supports multiple languages on all player messages

mobGriefing rule not the same

I hope you see that this does much more than the mobGriefing game rule. Yes, it's almost the same as the default Anticreeper config, but not the same. See my comment on this for an equivalent Anticreeper config.

Anticreeper allows you to do more, including fine-tune what/who gets damaged from explosions, create protected block types, allow damage from one mob explosion but not another, and lastly but perhaps most significantly, nerf TNT damage which mobGriefing does nothing about!

Still Not Working for you?

Most common error is misspelling your world name. Log into your world and execute these commands in game:

ac world
ac world on
ac save

First tells you if you had it on in that world. Second activates it, just to make sure. Third saves it so it sticks.

    Sorry for not replying sooner. I've been able to duplicate your problem, not only with crystals but with TNT. I've started a Ticket to track issues. Please see detailed comments/questions there.

    @ChillerKraft: Go

    Sounds right, but need to see your config.yml to be sure. I've never tried it with endercrystals but it should work....

    Unclear when/if Bukkit will come out with a 1.8 compatible update. Read the latest posts on or look at :(

    With DCMA takedown requests active, not clear if MS/MJ will be able to resurrect Bukkit. I'm following Sponge as possible replacement, and might port my plugins over there.
