Monster Apocalypse Version 19.5

Version 19.5 is only supported on Minecraft 1.10.0+. Please visit the Spigot page for support.

Support for new versions of Monster Apocalypse have been moved to Spigot, find more info and downloads here.




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 1.10 (R1) for version 19.5. Only Spigot supports this build. No other builds will work with this version.

You are free to use it commercially, as long as you do not sell the plugin itself unmodified, and do not claim ownership. Source code is included for self-modification. I am not liable for monetary or other damages caused by using or modding this plugin.


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.

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

Version 19.5 notes:

  • Updated to Minecraft/Spigot 1.10.0
  • Not officially supported yet
  • Version dependent on Spigot 1.10.0.

- Please view the supported release page here:


(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?

- Note: This is outdated and may not work.

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!

    For some reason zombies won't nerdpole and airbridge, anyone else with this problem? If you know how to fix it please tell me ;) Thanks!

    "Fixed Spider mega-aggro, including a bug where silverfish would spawn at players' feet."

    Is that still fixed? I have this problem and I'm not sure if MA is the cause.

    @uamadman: Go

    Seconded re: spawnpoints on the dev build; they keep climbing. Tried using ClearLag with a mob cap limit as well, but MA ignores it and goes on building mobs until the server overloads (4 TPS) then dies.

    Plugin dev + admin @ | now with more survival adventure storyline!

    @blainicus - Seems the spawn points don't obey the maximum mob limit.

    Cheers, Mad

    Hi, I could use some help. I am currently trying to get this plugin to run, but whenever I try to edit the config, I get an error in to the console, and it looks like it can't load the config due to colons (:). An example is "explosion causes fire: true". In the config, when I delete the said problem colon (It points to it in the server) it points to another one. Any idea what the problem is?

    Create a world guard region, block Enderman griefing with the flag, and set the Look for Enderman grief flag to true in the Monster Apocalypse config.

    Nothing to say... Walking dead server

    How do I stop mobs destorying my spawn?

  • Avatar of TommehRRR TommehRRR Jul 28, 2013 at 11:04 UTC - 0 likes


    Ofcourse! I did that, just put the Enderman grief flag to true, and do the same in the config! towards the top

    Is it possible to have zombie block breaking enabled, and set a WorldGuard zone where zombies CAN hurt players, but CAN NOT break blocks?

    @FakeTheRealHD: Go

    Read down a few comments and you will see that there is a dev build available for 1.6, but the custom health does not work. There is an option in the config to only enable this plugin on certain worlds.
