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.”

    The code is there, the documentation isn't. When I get home I'll figure out the config line for an enchanted diamomd sword. What enchantments did you have in mind?

    Cool plugin. But is there a way for the giants to drop, for ex, enchanted sword? Say i want to have the zombie giant to have a chans on droping a dimond sword with sharpness and unbreaking. Is it possible in the current state?

    Thanks! That kick attack its not a problem inside my house... The problem are i received the default damage from inside, (the same damage if i stay on the legs of giant). Now the default attack have the same range of kick attack i think.

    @snakemansos: Go

    Drops issue: simple enough, ill go fix that right now. Running giants: My priority was to get giant zombies working again. Now I'll work on refining their abilities. Kick bug; the kick attack will activate if the player is within 10 blocks of the giant's legs, even if you are inside a house or something. Slowness potion issue: not sure how to fix that. I'll look into it but not promising anything.

    Nice!!! Thanks for update this great plugin, suggestion:

    option to enable or disable the drops of this plugin, because i control the drops with another plugin to all entities, and this drops replaces the drops for giants. I want to control the drops system with another plugin.

    Default Damage amount received option when a player its close to giant: Giant zombies not walk, run!!! less damage to giants runners :p

    Found a bug... I only activate kick attack, when a giant zombie follow me i enter to my house, he attack me anyways from inside (not the kick attack, default attack maybe). giant zombies have a range attack? i received damage from him a bit far away from them.

    New bug: Slowness potions can't do anything with giants zombies. Giant Zombies walk to the same speed.

    Sorry about my language i speak spanish!

    Mate, this is a most excellent plugin; thanks very much for resurrecting! If I had the first idea about coding I would offer to contribute in any way I can.

    Apart from the thank you, I'd just like clarification on the drop rate variable. I don't think it's a percentage to drop, as I left it at 8.5 and items are dropping 100%... how does the variable work? And is it a drop-all-or-nothing thing?

    Purely as development ideas: in a dream world I'd love to see some spawn switches to customise individual entities' attributes; e.g. /giants spawn <type> <location> <health> <size> <speed> <attackrate> etc. Or be able to set these post-spawn, along the lines of Sentry-traited Citizens. Actually in a dream world I'd be able to help rather than make difficult suggestions, but there you go...
