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.”

    @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!

    Giants not target players (attacks its activated)...only stand up and wait to stomp or kick players. Spigot 1.8. i try with giants 6.3 & 6.4 dev builds (6.4 give error on loading)

    @yeahbuddy28: Go

    Make sure the attacks are enabled. Otherwise it will just stand there and try to do its defauly attack.

    Is there any way to make the giants agro on people? No matter how much i attack them they just sit there and take hits and only do the kicking attack when i get right next to them

    @sexyrussian: Go

    Does "/region flag [id] giants deny" not work? If it doesn't I'll work on adding support for it.

    @Mammothskier: Go

    I got spawners in spawn, spawning in cows, horses, sheep and other useful things. To help new players. So I can't have mob-spawning deny in spawn.

    So giants spawn at spawn, inside walls, on the roof, half way in the roof. lol.

    Could you make it use deny-spawn please?
