What is a component?
A component is simply a part of MobManager. Every component can be enabled/disabled individually from config.yml
To do
  • Add Protection component to MobManager (Protect the world from things like explosions or Endermen picking up blocks)
Note: The above are just ideas, not all of them may happen (If you particularly want one done let me know)
Note: Ordered by importance to me (Higher == More important) (Your needs are important to me :D)

As of v2.2 MobManagers configuration files consists of three parts
  • config.yml - Contains settings to enable/disable MobManager components
  • Global configs - Contains global configs for each component, located in MobManager/<component>.yml
  • World Configs - Contains settings for each component for each world located in MobManager/worlds/<worldname>/<component>.yml

Every config file contains a header block explaining every setting.

When you first install MobManager world and global configs are auto-magically generated.
By default only MobManagers Limiter is enabled, configs for abilities are generated if the component is enabled
The defaults for the limiter are pretty conservative. So you may wish to increase the limits.
If you need help with the config feel free to PM me and I can make one for you :)
Auto-Update Checker
Mobmanager includes a update checker/downloader. It uses this project page to check for new approved builds. The /mm version command can be used to check if a new version is available on bukkit dev.
The update checker is enabled by default and can be disabled in config.yml by setting EnableVersionCheck to false
The update downloader is disabled by default can be enabled in config.yml by setting EnableAutoUpdater to true

MobManager utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to
  • 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
  • MobManager components enabled
All information is publicly available and can be viewed at

Opting out of this service can be done by editing plugins/Plugin Metrics/config.yml and changing opt-out to true
Public Test Server
Public test server has been shut down, will try get a new one in the future
Feel free to join and have a look for yourself what MobManager does. Server has two worlds one with MobManager enabled, the other with it disabled. You are allowed to use /time to set the world to night, so monsters spawn on the surface. This server uses default settings for all configs.
Note: After joining, type /warp dev
Note: The test server only has the limiter component enabled

Please, if you have and questions or feature requests, do not hesitate to ask

    Anyone know if this plugin supports more than one type of bounty rewards?

    I am trying to use your plugin to allow all nether mobs to spawn in the overworld on a specific multiverse world. I am having a hell of a time figuring out how to do this. Could you guide me a bit? Much obliged sir and great work!

    @Flattery103: Go

    I got it all working. I installed the old version that is still on the site and when that one is installed the config file is fully loaded with a nice example. Should do that with this newer up-to-date version? Why take out something so useful? Or at least leave it in some documentation somewhere... the information is out there, just use it.

    This is loading up mobs in my spawn and shop in worlds where doMobSpawn is turned off.

    Can I limit the worlds this affects some how?

    Edit: So I think I got the per world stuff figured out, but now I messed up my config.yml file and no matter what I do I can't get the default back. Where can I find an example?

    I am using spigot 1.8 and it works well without issues. I only enabled the abilities part. But I get errors in the console when dispensers fire eggs at baby chickens. Not sure if the error comes when they die or just get hit but here I am pasting the errors.

    Thank you for your wonderful plugin. I hope to see this updated to 1.8 eventually. It is a wonderful plugin that adds immensely to the mob oriented gameplay in survival minecraft. It would be a shame if it was not further developed/ :)

    Is it possible to change mobs from passive to aggressive, like if I wanted villagers to fight back when attacked by players? If this plugin could be designed to do that, or anyone knows another plugin that can do that, I would appreciate the help.

  • Avatar of Shahblox Shahblox Mar 10, 2015 at 05:11 UTC - 0 likes

    The only reason I need this plugin is to set an area where a specific mob or mobs will spawn and when a player kills them they will respawn in the same area. How do I do this?
