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

Video Tutorial


  • 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.

Using MultiInv with BungeeCord

Since BungeeCord requires servers to be in offline mode it's sometimes hard to acquire a reliable UUID if Spigot/BungeeCord isn't configured correctly. Here are the settings you will need to change:
In the BungeeCord config.yml make sure ip_forward is set to true
On the server in the spigot.yml make sure bungeecord is set to true
By setting these two options BungeeCord will be able to pass the correct UUID to the servers. Please note that if you are sharing inventories across multiple servers that this feature is still in beta and may not always work.


  • /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 mcimport - Import Minecraft player files into MultiInv. (Only useful when you've got existing player data and you are enabling the SaveInventoryOnQuit option)
  • /multiinv mcexport - Exports MultiInv player data for the default world into the default world in Minecraft format.


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

    Multiverse-Inventories can keep world economies separate. Can this plugin do that as well? Also the other one has a problem when paying others; If someone is in worldA and /pay to another player in worldB, the receiving player gets money in worldB when he would get it in worldA. I was wondering if this might be a feature, or a planned feature?

    Use the groups, play around with it. Eventually set hub and SG world in same group

    We have Epic Spleef and Ultimate Survival Games (in a world called Arcade).

    When players play them, and then return to the Peaceful world, their inventory is DUPLICATED. We can't have this, because then they just keep duplicating valuable items.

    :-( Anyone else have this problem?

    How do I disable multiInv in my survival mode? because the hotbar items from survival mode keeps duplicating and filling empty hotbar with the same items and same items from hub items.

    im using SurvivalGames plugin by wazup92

    You might try denying yourself this permission node:

    • multiinv.exempt - Exempts player from inventory switch (If your inventory is not changing, deny yourself this permission in your permissions manager!!!!)

    @wugthefk: Go

    Yup, already fixed in the dev builds, you might want to try them, I've heard there's a few bugs that have been fixed in them.

    I love this plugin. It works without PermissionsEx, but not with it. How do I make it work with PermissionsEx? If it isn't possible, does it work with a different permission plugin?

    A little bug I found that causes inventories to not be switched:

    EDIT: I am using Spigot 1.8.7 on MultiInv version 3.3.5 and TuxTwoLib version 1.8.4-b6
