Monster Apocalypse

Monster Apocalypse

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!

  • 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!

    Please add spigot support, it's the only plugin that does its job so well.

    How do I initiate nightmare mode?

    @robodude99: Go

    This should be possible using bonus spawns.

    The newest version is a dev build for 1.7.5.

    @blainicus I want a config that spawns a small wave of 6-10 zombies near the player every 30 seconds.... what values of the config can set this up. I tried setting the chance of a bonus spawn being a wave to 100% but the wave that is created is way too large. Any help or advice? EDIT: I would also like to know if you have any 1.7.5 compatible dev builds. Thanks!

    @Desicions: Go

    It's the second line in the config.

    @laacis2: Go

    Ten is far too big, set it to four or less.

    My server's jvm crashed with fatal error exactly when i was blowing up two creepers in water. My setting is that their explosion radius is 10 blocks.

    @blainicus: Go

    'Zombie world mode' - I'm sorry but I'm not quite sure if such property exists, maybe it is called differently?

    @Brutalbic1: Go

    Most likely you set your world name wrong or you left zombie world mode on.

    @Desicions: Go

    Try zombie world mode, it does that.

    Is there a way to make mobs spawn during day time in places that have light source? I'm trying to make a zombie apocalypse server, and I really need that :/

    I installed the plugin and it works fine, but whenever I save the config file then launch the server, all the settings reset back to default for some reason.

    Is there a way to stop this from happening?

    I am using the version for a 1.7.2 server.
