Giants That Spawn Naturally

This plugin takes direct inspiration from FatMarleys' plugin FatGiants, which in turn was inspired by NaturalGiants. This plugin also takes inspiration from NodinChan's MobJockeys.

This plugin was originally written by rmh4209, continued on by pkt77, and is now in the hands of Mammothskier.

SourceDev Builds


The Giants Plugin can naturally spawn Giants that have 8 Configurable attack mechanisms Configurable Health, Experience, Drops, and Spawn in configurable Worlds and Biomes. β€œThe worst thing you can say about homework is that it is too hard. The worst thing you can say about a game is it's too easy.”

    Like I have said this plugin does not support 1.8. As for you having someone "fix" this, please push the changes back to this plugin to help out the rest of the community. I am also working on a rewrite. But please do make a pull request and not keep you're updated code to yourself.

    its still spawning giants in the warzone, safezone, mob-spawning deny world guard zones, deny-spawn [giants] world guard zones. So if you got this plugin on the server, they will spawn everywhere and they cant be stopped. I am actually paying someone to fix this for my server. I also wanted to note that when u turn on debug mode, you see a lot of underground and floating-in-the-air coords

    Hope to see your plugin up and running soon. sadly I am unable to help test the plugin in a production environment at this time.

    We had some block damage from a giant in a protected region. Is there a flag like giant-block-damage deny? All other block damage is prevented by worldguard except for unruly giants. :) Thank you for contributing this plugin. It has been running on our server for a long time.

    I have not finished the rewrite of the plugins because of school and work. Also the dev builds are down right now because some jackass decided to start ddosing my build server and I don't have the money to afford ddos protection. Giants will be updated and the dev builds will be moving over to another server in the coming week.

    I have got giants targetting correctly again and no longer standing still. However I have not got attacks working yet and drops still need to be debugged. If anyone would like feel free to submit pull requests for those things. Thanks.

    Could you please send me a link to the download? It looks to me like your 'Dev Build' pages aren't working.

    Looking at a release time of the next 24 hours for a fully working giants build. I go out of town on thursday for the weekend and won't have much time to work on it.

    @Mammothskier: Go

    Ok I will test out any version as long as it won't corrupt anything of mine. I am much looking forward to using this plugin again while it works fully.

    Colamonster091, I can have a build ready for spigot 1.8.3 within in few hours for you but be warned it may have bugs like the ones Spydermike pointed out. Let me know if you are interested in a rushed 1.8.3 build :)

    edit: nevermind, after attempting this for almost an hour, I have decided the only way to get anything to work will be to rewrite most of the plugin. Working on it today. :)
