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!
  • 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!
  • Nightmare Mode for the ultimate increasing challenge!
  • FULL World-Guard region support, works even when worldguard regions isn't!
  • Total natural spawn rewrite, available to change your world drastically and retain that vanilla feel.
  • Multi-world support - Will only run on worlds YOU select!
  • Mega-aggro system - Mobs can smell you from miles away and attack!
  • Spawn Points - Set up virtual spawners with custom timers!
  • True damage - Allow mobs to pierce that pesky diamond armor!
  • Wolf and PigZombie aggressiveness control.
  • Control which blocks mobs spawn on.
  • Permissions nodes to make certain players immune to monster aggro and damage.


Warning, videos below contain mild mature language.

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!

    @TampicoDesign: Go

    The best editor for that type of editing is also make sure to go to Settings>Preferences>Language Menu/Tab Settings and tick the Replace by Space option and set it to 4

    As for the format I am not sure. I am sure the dev can help you.

    Hello, I'm a bit noobish with configurations, I'm trying to put more drops to my mobs by making a new paragraph in the text, but the console tells me it doesn't work when I do that; for example, I have:

    Zombie: drops: - LEATHER:1:5.0

    Like that, it works fine, but when I add more drops like this:

    Zombie: drops: - LEATHER:1:5.0 - SEEDS:16:3.50 (for example)

    It doesn't work, I'm using Notepad, do I need to get some software or do something special instead of only pressing Enter?

    Thanks in advance :)

    WelI I flew out and loaded more chunks and the new zombies don't appear to be doing it. Maybe it was just a glitch?

    All the zombies are spawning on 2-3 blocks of dirt. Is that intended?

    Can't wait to get this new update going on our Apocalypse server tomorrow :) Awesome updates!

    To anyone having issues with the multiworld problems check this out Once I researched it all it didn't take me but a few hours to get our single server with multiple worlds and such ported to a multi server setup. It's WELL worth the effort as it really cuts down on the conflicts.

    @sugarbrosres: Go

    Make sure you set up your config right and worldguard isn't interfering.
