If you appreciate this plugin and actually want to see it developed further by me rather than only receiving compatibility updates, you are welcome to Donate.
Thanks to the following people who have appreciated the plugin enough to donate: jonDatz, xrobau, Gussi, Dizzy, R. Meijer, FoundationCraft, T. Bronner, R. Thompson, The Pokemon Server,, D. Senff, Vik1395, TagCraftMC, D. Strickner, M. Wilson, Rhythmatic, W. Downey, P. V. Gretener, MiniCraft Server, Cosmic Craft,, polaris_iv (Forge port), matagin.
Also thanks to IMathe172I (Lang Lukas) for contributing code to support elliptic and rectangular border shapes, and Indiv0 for contributing code to support border wrapping.


This plugin is intended to efficiently provide a border for each of your worlds, which only people granted special bypass access are allowed beyond. These borders can be round/elliptic or square/rectangular. As the plugin has been written with performance as the most important goal, it should have no performance impact on your server. Additional world trimming and filling commands are available as well.
Older plugins which originally inspired the creation of this one: rBorder and BorderGuard.


  • You can set up a separate border for each world, but only one border per world.
  • You can have either round/elliptic or square/rectangular borders. Square/rectangular borders are slightly higher performance, round/elliptic borders make for nicer display maps. Different worlds can have different border shapes if you so choose.
  • Configuration and border setup is done completely using commands in-game or through the server console. No need to ever edit the config file directly.
  • Support for all permission plugins which interface with Bukkit's built-in "superperms" permission system.
  • You can fully generate (fill) your world all the way to the border, filling in any missing chunks, including a configurable buffer zone just outside your border.
  • You can trim off any world chunks beyond the border, getting rid of extraneous parts, with a configurable buffer zone left just outside your border.
  • You can use a bypass command to allow specific players to go beyond all borders.
  • Borders can be automatically displayed in DynMap if you use that plugin.
  • All plugin data is automatically saved whenever any borders or settings are changed.
  • If a player crosses a border while in a vehicle, the momentum of the vehicle is stopped and it is moved back inside the border with the player.
  • When a player is moved back inside a border, they will be moved to a safe vertical location if needed.
  • Borders for specific worlds can be set to wrap around instead of just knocking back players who cross the border, instead sending them to the opposite edge of the border.

Of special interest are the Fill command and the Trim command features:

Borders are also displayed automatically by default in DynMap if you have it:

    Can you add a feature so I can make a worldborder out of a actual 1.8 border? If you have seen a legit singleplayer border for it to look just like that!

    Here a video so you can see it in action:

    So looking just like that ^

    This plugin does not provide any damage protection. My guess is that you're using a plugin which prevents damage to players who just teleported or something similar.

    Currently using the version of WB: 1.8.3

    I am wondering if there is away to prevent my players abusing a bug with it, they can constantly run into a border and it'll infinitely push them back and they can take 0 damage. From players, TNT, mobs etc.

    Do you have any suggestions?

    Herro :3

    @Bruchpilot13: Go

    There's no way to automate that within the plugin, sorry. You could use another plugin or tool to send a command to shrink or increase the border radius at certain intervals, though. Example command to shrink a border radius by 15 blocks for a world named "mainWorld":

    wb mainWorld radius -15

    Hey there,

    is it possible to configure the worldborder that everyday the radius gets less by 15 blocks?

    @ShankTankOP: Go

    /wborder is actually the main command, so it should work for you. /wb is the shorter and more commonly used command alias.

    I used to have /worldborder as another command alias, but Minecraft got its own vanilla border in 1.8 which uses the command /worldborder, so I removed that alias from this plugin.

    Could you possibly change the command to something rather than "/wb" because "/wb" is for the Workbench for essentials. I know you can make a alias but I have no idea how to do that and most people do not as well. I tried "/worldborder" but it just repeats the same message which says "/worldborder <set:center:damage:warning:get> ...".

    @Inmeperial: Go

    This plugin will never teleport anyone inside a block, unless your world's spawn location is somehow inside a block (you'd need to mess that up yourself) and circumstances come together to make WorldBorder use that location since it can't find a viable safe knockback location itself. Considering you are the only person to EVER report such a problem, it is much much more likely that something else is causing your problem. Especially considering your problem persists after removing this plugin, at which point the plugin can obviously not do anything on your server.

    Look elsewhere, and consider trying to properly pinpoint the cause of a problem before laying blame where it doesn't belong and badmouthing a plugin which doesn't deserve it.

    I dont really like this plugin. I have alot of troubles (i have 7 world in 1 server) and they all have the same error "X suffocate in a wall". And now i even put "wb clear all" and all the things. Even delete the plugin .jar and i still have the problem. And the bypass dont work btw.

    Such a bad plugin.
