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!!!!)

Updating from MultiInv 2.x to 3.x

  1. Delete your old config.yml file in the plugins/MultiInv directory
  2. Start the server with the new plugin
  3. Rename the Worlds folder to Groups under the plugins/MultiInv directory.
  4. Rename shares.yml to groups.yml
  5. Cut the creativeGroups section out of groups.yml and paste it at the end of config.yml
  6. Edit the config.yml to your prefrences
  7. do: /multiinv reload
  8. If you are moving to the mysql database do: /multiinv import
  9. You're done, enjoy!

    I am well aware of these issues, however as I do this as a hobby I can't always find the time every day to fix them. Right now I've got several high paying clients that I'm working with and trying to work on this as well as the other projects is quite hard. Please be patient with me.

    @Tux2: Go

    Tux, one of the issues has to do with TPing too fast. This causes players to lose their inventory every time. I have currently came up with a few work arounds for our server for that part until you do figure it out. I have also seen it when a player logs out in creative world, and then logs back in and switches to another world. So it seems, that in my particular case, it is in the tping between Survival, Creative and Adventure Worlds particularly at log in. Hopefully this helps. Keep up the great work. Oh and please take your time, scripting is hard work, we can all wait and deal with fixing inventories until you can work out this bug. Don't rush on anyone else's account. Not like anyone is going to find a better method than yours anyways. There may be other inv handling plugs, but there is only one MultiInv! :D

    @everyoneElse Other plugins that could be causing the issue with inventory loss is Authme, When using the spawn function at log in. If using MultiWorld to handle a Creative world. Any other plugin that uses cross world respawning. Such as EssentialsSpawn. I would advise that anyone with these issues disable as much of these spawning plugins as possible until Tux2 can get the time to work out this bug. I personally feel that MultiInv is more important than manipulating spawning features. So give Tux some kudos on the work that has been done.

    Hey guys, I know that some of you are reporting inventory loss using the latest versions of MultiInv. I am currently investigating this. Also, you are more than welcome to switch to another inventory plugin, please just don't advertise it on this page.

    Yea I was just going to comment about inventory lost...Guess I just have to make all the worlds in a separate server...Not ideal but the players are getting P.O.'ed. Hopefully this can all be fixed. It is the same with Mysql or flatfile and has something to do with a player death event then a world change right after. Keep me posted on a good fix.

    @miki88mouse: Go

    Reproduced this issue on my server and it works.... forced to keep this plugin... im dead

    EDIT: GUYS GUYS GUYS DOWNGRADE TO 3.3.0 IT FIXES THE DUPE ISSUE (Pick stuff in Creative then go in Survival) I retried the same steps and it doesn't happen! But about inventory loss it can still happen.

    I've setup a test server, and if Tux2 wants to try himself the IP is
