What is MultiInv

MultiInv is a plugin that gives players a separate inventory for every different world running on the server. You can share inventories over chosen worlds and some players can be ignored entirely. With this power it is possible to have multiple worlds running on one server, but keeping them totally segregated from one another.

MultiInv can also separate health over certain worlds allowing for total separations of a world on a server.

If MultiInv refuses to work and you can't change inventories, it's because you have the wrong version of the TuxTwoLib!

Update for UUIDs and 1.7.9 (there will be no support for 1.7.8 or below due to game breaking bugs) are here! Download will be available as soon as Bukkit Dev approves it.

MultiInv and MobArena are currently not compatible! Make sure users can only join a mob arena from the same world group!

Starting with MultiInv 3.2.1 we now require the library TuxTwoLib to maintain compatibility across various minecraft versions


  • Separate world inventories
  • Create groups of worlds where the inventory is shared between them
  • Separates XP, food, health, potion effects, and EnderChest inventory per world/group of worlds.
  • Option to ignore certain players completely (permissions based)
  • Can import Multiverse-Inventories/WorldInventories saved inventories.
  • Option to use mySQL instead of flat files.


The forums for this plugin (at the top of the page) are the best place to go if you have any questions that aren't just general comments (such as "I hat you" or "I love you"). There I can see which problems have been replied too and who still needs help.


  • /multiinv reload - Reloads config files.
  • /multiinv import - Imports flat files into a mysql database.
  • /multiinv mvimport - Imports Multiverse-Inventories into MultiInv, with the database that you have selected. (You will need to have the Multiverse-Inventories plugin installed when doing the import, just make sure to remove it afterwards)
  • /multiinv miimport - Imports WorldInventories into MultiInv.


  • multiinv.reload - Permission to use the reload command
  • multiinv.import - Permission to use the import command
  • multiinv.mvimport - Permission to use the mvimport command
  • multiinv.exempt - Exempts player from inventory switch (If your inventory is not changing, deny yourself this permission in your permissions manager!!!!)

    @DanielMuhlig: Go

    This is due to Minecraft having to reach out to get UUIDs of the users. It should only do this on older users however that haven't logged in for quite some time. Unfortunately I can't do anything to speed this up without including a large library from Mojang to batch the usernames. Bitcoins?1Lr7prAnqYpZe2UizvPKV2Cg4KSuj2weXb
    If you didn't take the time to read how my plugins work, don't expect me to take the time to diagnose your stupidity.
    If updates to my plugins depended on donations, they would never update. Donate!

    @Expression93, @stoneistoohard: Same. Denied multiinv.exempt node, restarted the server just in case, no avail. The inventory stays when switching worlds, no error messages in console.

    Edit: Nevermind, I was stupid. I had to use seperate world groups, I didn't even think about it. It works as it should, thanks!

    Conversion to UUID takes forever. About 2 users/sec. and I have 20.000+ users in 3 Groups so I'm looking at more that 8 hours of downtime :-(

    Are there any way to speed that up?

    @TNTUP: Go

    How exactly did he lose his inventory? Did you get an error in console when it happened? You've got to give me specifics, otherwise I can't duplicate it...

    @scottparker943: Go

    Thanks for the bug report! I've fixed the NPE in the pastebin you pasted in the latest dev build on Jenkins. download it and let me know if that fixes your issues.

    @Expression93: Go

    Did you deny yourself the multiinv.exempt node?

    I don't appear to get any of the expected MI behaviour, its almost as if the plugin is completely non-functional on my server, however I searched the MC logs and it says the plugin loads and I cannot see any errors following this process.

    (By no expected behaviour I mean inventories don't appear to be split between worlds etc)

    I still get errors even with multiinv 3.3.1 dev It just doesn't seem to be compatable with some of my plugins (this error is portals and spawn tp)

    I have had to disable multiinv because of all of these errors, but I really like the plugin and want it on my server!
