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.”

    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. :)

    I would really like to see an update for this. It is really essential now for my server and I would like all these console errors to be fixed and the ability to spawn giant magma cubes and slimes with 1.8.3 spigot.

    Thanks a lot for a plugin like this. I will consider donating.

    Interesting on the drops issue, looking over it now. I'll have a fully working 1.8 build out this weekend. :)

    Mojang removed the giants default AI so no matter what giants will not target entities.

    also when i put Drops: - 388-0-0;3;100/100

    it only drops one emerald not 3

    Great concept, although giants are in the game already, they have little functionality. I like all the extra abilities they have now. They still stand there idle a bit, but you mentioned you will get them up & running again. :-)

    For the slimes(normal, magma), that one blew me away, just as much as the giants. So intimidating, they leap from one large surface area to the next. You definitely have to be on the look-out, or you'll be mince-meat for sure. ;-)

    All in all, fantastic plugin, keep up the great work, looking forward to future updates! 8-)

    @KreatorB: Go

    Found a bug, I tested the spawns and I was able to kill the Zombie, the Slime but not the magma... hmmm Strange... Also, Idea.... explain the item drop for the giants so we can customize it for what we like. Also maybe show hearts over his head. Not seeing them! Lastly and sorry to bug, but the giants do not seem to come at you like a small zombie does and when the fire the fireballs which I have set to false they seem to always throw them in direction I am not in... LOL just details. If you want to see it in action please PM me I will show you on the server

    Thanks great plugin!
