Monster Apocalypse Version 17.0




Welcome to the ultimate monster hell. I have brought together everything anyone everyone could ever want to do with monsters into one completely hellbent plugin. Use at your own risk.

Warning - Zombie digging is destructive, if you turn it on and configure it, please backup your worlds.

Plugin has been thoroughly tested as working properly, if you have trouble please report it so I can make it work for a wider range of setups!

PLEASE USE CRAFTBUKKIT 1.7.10 (any revision) for version 17.0. No other builds will work with this version.


Monster Apocalypse was created by one man, working full time continually for several months during early development. Please donate if you would like to see more features or new plugin releases, or just feel like my time is worth your gratitude.


  • Complete control of all monster power- health, damage, item drops, burning in sunlight, explosion radius, immunity to specific damage types, even spawn rates!
  • INSTANT setup options!
  • Consume the world in darkness - Always night mode, and bonus spawns!
  • Action RPG Mode - Make combat more exciting!
  • Incredible new abilities - Mobs can explode on death, spawn allies, kill torches, attack from miles away at high velocity, bombard bases with exploding arrows, and even claw and scratch their way into your home!
  • Zombies can dig through anything based on YOUR settings, and no server lag! Fear the Apocalypse as they pound away at your walls!
  • Monsters can be set to nerdpole and airbridge, like players on the hunt!
  • Skeletons can be set to turn into quake pro snipers, shooting accurately from FAR in the distance!

Version 17.0 is out!

It will appear here once it's approved:

If you need it earlier than this (it can take up to 5 days), send me a private message.

Thanks for the support! If you like what I've done with this version, feel free to donate.

Version 17.0 notes:

  • Updated to Minecraft 1.7.10.


(Is partially updated)

You will need to reference craftbukkit enums for drops and block attacking to work, failure to use valid enums could potentially break your plugin. You can find them here:

You may want to play with Spawn Points, you can find the info here:

If you wish to develop your own plugin with my health API, check this page:

For Nightmare Mode, check here:

Need multiple configs?

How to set up multiple installations, for different custom difficulties on multiple worlds:

  1. Copy the MA jar and rename it.
  2. Rename the plugin inside plugin.yml of the second copy (within the jar), and remove the commands section.
  3. Disable registering the /MA command in the second copy's config.
  4. Double check that you have no world names overlapping between the two configs, and that your bonus and naturalistic spawns are restricted to the right worlds.

You now have two separate installations.

Fear the Darkness: Adds an element of terror to dark areas of minecraft!

Simple Starvation: For when you really want to emphasize long term survival!

    Can you add option to spawn a zombie after a player dies? Or can you enable source code, so I can try to add this option? Thanks!

    Can you make tutorial about these enums? Im trying to know what is what from 2 days and nothing :c (sory for english)

    Question and Request: Do you know if their is a distance thing for when the mobs will start attacking like skeletons can't shoot if you are behind a wall by 7 blocks or creepers won't explode if they are 10 blocks away, but they still will go after you from long distances?

    Question and Request: Can you make settings timer, for example all settings in config will be used on the day this timer will go off and it will last X amount of Minecraft Days, Users have the ability to also change this to true or false?

    Request: Can you make it so instead of Dirt being the nerd polling device, zombies stack one on top of the other one to get to you, and like a custom spawn per block amount like stone block monster spawns are 40% less or 40% more and have them configurable!

    I am willing to donate if I see those things possibly added for 1.7.9 r0.1 or even 1.8 but looks like 1.7.9R01 is more likely...

    Yeah everything else works its only when i set nerdpoling to true that the file reverts back. when i change mob damage or health it works fine.

    @JawnSze: Go

    Make sure your world name is set right.

    Whenever i set nerdpoling to true, the confiq file reverts back to the original.

    @Strider1048: Go

    The block option should work if you bukkit enums, such as GRAVEL.

    You have to enable worldguard checks for the protection to work.

    @CholeraJasna: Go

    After running the server with that mode once, you can disable it and change from the new config.

    Great job Blainicus, this plugin is a great addition to any survival server out there.

    That being said, I do have a few comments that may help improvement;

    # 1.) The config file... as you probably know - is a bit daunting to say the least. It could probably use some editing to clarify what everything actually does

    # 2.) This page here: is outdated. I had to attempt to correlate the changes when I was using it for reference.

    # 3.) This option here:

    Block to use for monsters building: DIRT

    doesn't seem to actually be configurable. I attempted to change this to various block types and it would continue to default to DIRT.

    # 4.) Nerdpolling / Airbridging / Breaking Torches - doesn't seem to obey building rules from World Guard regardless if a zone has the build flag enabled or disabled.

    Well then, hopefully this info helps. Oh, and if you would like help updating and clarifying the config file, I'd be glad to assist sometime.

    Looking forward to your response! - Strider
