Giant Caves



Giant Caves is a bukkit mod that creates giant underground caves in the world. The caves are generated using Perlin noise seeded by the world seed. Caves are unique to each world.

Giant Caves is implemented as a bukkit block populator and is compatible with the vanilla world generator and most likely any world generation plugin that implements the chunk generator pattern. Giant Caves also comes with a vanilla generator for use with Multiverse.

Works best with Subterranea


I don't have Multiverse or another world manager

  • Stop the server if it is running!
  • Download the plugin and put it into your plugins folder.
  • Start your Server to make the plugin generate default world configuration files for known worlds.
  • Set onlyUseWorldManagers to false in config.yml
  • Edit the configuration file to match your needs. (See Help Topics > Configuration for more info.)
  • Restart your server.

    Actually, Caves in real life are carved VERY close to this. Good job on replicating real life, developer!

    So here's what happened:

    I had a survival world on one of my servers on my network that required this plugin to work. I had 2 developers that worked for me. When spring/summer hit, both decided to take "real jobs" in the real world. The one I haven't heard from since and the other is hard to talk to.

    Over the last couple months I've been rethinking my position on Minecraft and I may just leave this game and not put any further effort into it. Mammothskier, you wanted the code? I'm more than happy to share it, once I figure out how to get it again. I just recently wiped everything on my system but I am certain I kept a copy of it.

    Please provide me a pm or something and I'll share the info with you in a PM. I'll rarely be by these parts again.

    @OrionEvermore: Go

    My developer got the main bugs fixed (we didn't fully test it, we just verified on startup) but could not get it to work with multiverse without it crapping out. Then my developer just kinda... disappeared. I have a indev version but I haven't actually fully tested it to see what it does. I definitely know it doesn't work with multiverse.
