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.

    I cannot reproduce these issues. Please update to 1.8.7 and try again.

    If it is an issue with an earlier version we will not be supporting it. We are only focusing on latest versions of Spigot.

    /mv create skylands normal -g SkylandsPlus "Invalid generator! 'skylandsplus'. Aborting world creation."

    Wow, I just started a new server yesterday and thought "man, it'd sure be nice to have an Aether/Skylands world as the main survival world". Go to look it up, come here, and bam!

    A few questions, though; Do diamonds generate normally? I can't seem to find any with WorldEdit, even when doing mass replace actions in a 200-block radius. Also, are all the 1.8 biomes and blocks in at this point?

    Thanks for the work on this, it's... pretty amazing so far. Everybody I've shown this off to has been all excited for it, so you're definitely doing something right there. :)

    I would think the same method would work, just take your world files you already have, make a new world with multiworld, then replace the newly created files with the ones you had previously
