* 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.


  • 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.


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.


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

    is there a way to make it possible for other players to not show up on the map, but the person viewing the dynmap can see themselves?

    Hey guys,

    Im tyring to delete the surface map from my server because its currently 7gigs. I have done /map mapdelete _worldname_:_mapname_ however its still using a crap load of space, So I dont think it removed the tiles.

    When I look in the tiles folder I see ct - flat and t, is t surface?

    i cant follow you to be honest, how can that not be your server if your server has that port?

    @JRsz: Go

    Indeed that works, but that isn't my server. My server is having that god damn port :/

    Everything works perfectly, but trying to make dynmap more comfortable for players to use on my server. Right now, players with User+ rank get dynmap.webregister permission to be able to make an account, is there a way to bypass it in a way that ip's (and playernames from last login) of User+ players who log in atleast once, get saved so they could instantly access the map, but nobody else could?
