This plugin will add a replacement for the default skylands world generator, the one in the game was never finished.

Stuff that this generator has that the default skylands doesn't:

  • Day-night cycle
  • Weather
  • Normal biomes
  • All mobs
  • All ores

Promo Video

How do I use it ?

Don't want to watch the awesome video ? Fine, here are the basic commands.

/mv create skylands normal -g SkylandsPlus

Or a skylands style Nether like this

/mv create skylands nether -g SkylandsPlus

Or a skylands style End like this

/mv create skylands the_end -g SkylandsPlus

Other world management plugins should have similar commands, I use Multiverse on my server which is why I only provide the instructions for that. The documentation for which ever plugin you use should tell you how to do it. You can also add a world by editing the bukkit.yml file, instructions on how to do that can be found on the Bukkit wiki.


prevent-sand-falling: true
restrict-mob-spawning: true

prevent-sand-falling - When set to true no sand will fall in skylands worlds.

restrict-mob-spawning - When set to true the number of mobs in a single chunk will be limited to a sane amount in skylands worlds.


Contributions to the project are very much welcome, if you have a feature that you want implemented and know a nice way to do it then consider forking the repo and submitting a pull request. These will be accepted as long as the following simple guidelines are followed.

  • Do not edit the structure of the pom.xml file, feel free to add a dependency if you need it but the formatting and structure should not be changed.
  • If you are exposing a new API method, add a JavaDoc comment to it, but don't over-comment internal code.
  • Follow the existing code style, don't antagonise over every space though !

All dependencies that are used are now available from a public Maven repo, so you don't have to worry about building several other projects just to add a simple change any more.

    Is there a 1.8 version?
    Multiverse Shows errors when I use /mv gens
    and /mv create <world> normal -g SkylandsPlus also makes errors.

    I hope someone can command a link to a 1.8 version soon

    The updated builds seem to have been taken down from the development server. Is anyone able to provide a download of a working version of this for Spigot 1.8.3+?

    I managed to get this plugin working and I do love it but it stops generating the sky world after about 1000 blocks and starts generating the normal minecraft terrain in the overworld. Can someone please help me. It can also glitch and generate the normal minecraft over world even before 1000 blocks PLEASE HELP.

    @MPigna: Go

    I know I'm late, but OrePlus works great with SkylandsPlus. You can change ore generation height, and add any block you want.
