Dynmap

Screenshot

* AS I AM NOW SUPPORTING MORE THAN JUST BUKKIT WITH DYNMAP, MAIN SUPPORT THREAD IS NOW ON http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/1543523-dynmap-dynamic-web-based-maps-for-minecraft/- FOR QUICKEST SUPPORT, PLEASE BEGIN USING THIS THREAD *

A Google Maps-like map for your Minecraft server that can be viewed in a browser. Easy to set up when making use of Dynmap's integrated webserver which works out-of-the-box, while also available to be integrated into existing websites running on Apache and the like. Dynmap can render your worlds using different renderers, some suitable for performance, some for high detail.

Components allow you to add/remove functionality to make Dynmap suit your needs. Using the components Dynmap comes supplied with, there is support for chat balloons, web-to-game chat, and configurable markers, areas, and lines.

Features

  • Highly configurable maps per world
  • Real-time updates: maps are kept in sync with your world in real-time, updates are shown while your leave your browser open
  • Players with their faces are visible on the map
  • Chat messages are visible (as balloons or in a chatbox) on the map.
  • Map viewers can chat to players in-game.
  • Current Minecraft time is visible on the map.
  • Current Minecraft weather is visible on the map.
  • WorldGuard, Residence, Towny and Factions regions that can be visible on the map (through corresponding Dynmap-* plugins)
  • Overall highly configurable and customizable.

Installation

Copy dynmap-*.jar into your plugins directory. If you are upgrading, delete the previous dynmap-*.jar - you do NOT need to delete the plugins/dynmap directory or its contents.

If you are running a separate webserver (like Apache) you may need to copy the files from 'plugins/dynmap/web/' to a directory in your http-root and follow this guide. When upgrading, make sure you also upgrade the copied files.

First time use

When you start CraftBukkit, you should be able to navigate to http://yourserverip:8123/ in your browser. In case you are running CraftBukkit on the PC you are currently working on, you can navigate to http://localhost:8123/. You should be able to see the players who are in-game. Note that the map is not yet rendered, therefore the background will be black.

If you are planning on using the HD renderer, now would be a good time to do so. Enable 'deftemplatesuffix: hires' in the top of configuration.txt. More information about deftemplatesuffix is available at Base plugin settings.

If you just want to see Dynmap work, use the following command in-game: /dynmap fullrender. The wiki contains more information about commands and permissions. The map should reveal itself gradually in the browser, give it some time. Progress messages indicate that Dynmap is working and will show when the render is completed.

Dynmap Add-Ons:

Both to demonstrate the API, and to help manage the growth of this already-huge plugin, we've started producing additional plugins for Dynmap. All of these will depend on Dynmap and interface through its APIs, but only need to be added by folks that are interested in the additional function they provide:

Mods integrated with Dynmap:

The following mods are known to support dynmap integration without needing an add-on:

Also, for the best response to questions and such, please post comments to our main forum thread - http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/1543523-dynmap-dynamic-web-based-maps-for-minecraft/. Once again, having more than one place just isn't helpful, and this is where the 'Dynmap Community' already operates.

Disclosure

This plugin utilizes Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to mcstats.org:

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version

    @IanPaschal:

    Server specs? Could be your box isn't powerful enough. You could also try to wipe your dynmap data, to see if that works.

    @Kodauer: Go

    Erm, nope! Made it 20 minutes with 2.0.0 before crash. This is after it ran 8 hours last night without crash and without Dynmap.

    @Kodauer: Go

    Well, yeah, tough to say without any error messages. But when I remove Dynmap, the server is running for hours/days on end. Drop Dynmap back into the plugins folder and total crash within 30 minutes, reoccurring every 15 until I drag it back out.

    But I didn't see there was a new build! I will try it out. Thank you!

    @IanPaschal:

    I doubt it's dynmap, but you could try updating to dynmap 2.0.0 (see DL links above), since they're the recommended builds for bukkit 1.7.9.

    Having a bit of an issue where Dynmap is causing my server to completely crash. There's no error, nothing in the logs, and it's a complete shut down (not freeze or something). Users get an error message in their client saying "connection reset by peer". I'm fairly certain it's being caused by Dynmap because I have yet to see it happen without Dynmap installed and it happens every 15 minutes or so with Dynmap loaded. Dynmap version is 1.9.4 and Craftbukkit version is 1.7.9-R0.2. Again, I'd post error logs if I could but there's absolutely nothing. Would love to know if there's a fix for it because our world is huge and getting around with Dynmap is near impossible.

    @mikeprimm:

    First off, thanks for making this * beyond amazing * plugin. I've used it for about 2-3 years now.

    Would you consider making an addon for this plugin here?: http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/landlord/

    Has similar claiming mechanics like factions, so I'm assuming an addon could be made similar to that of dynmap-factions.

    Thanks!

    @KelvinKam: Go

    How many banned IPs do you have? This has never shown as a measurable cost anyplace else, but seems to suggest you've got a very large set of banned IP addresses.

    @Marwzoor: Go

    Been supporting both TPs and RPs for quite a long while (ever since RPs were released). Full support for 1.8 level RP features is gonna take some time, though (the custom models)

    @rautamiekka: Go

    This is preparation for allowing multiple instances of the plugin to contribute to one database, which will then create a single web containing the combination of contributions: something good for folks like BungeeCord users, for example. At present, the support is incomplete, so don't expect it to be useful in the current builds.
