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 or forgot to deny yourself the permission multiinv.exempt!

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

Video Tutorial


  • 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.

Using MultiInv with BungeeCord

Since BungeeCord requires servers to be in offline mode it's sometimes hard to acquire a reliable UUID if Spigot/BungeeCord isn't configured correctly. Here are the settings you will need to change:
In the BungeeCord config.yml make sure ip_forward is set to true
On the server in the spigot.yml make sure bungeecord is set to true
By setting these two options BungeeCord will be able to pass the correct UUID to the servers. Please note that if you are sharing inventories across multiple servers that this feature is still in beta and may not always work.


  • /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 mcimport - Import Minecraft player files into MultiInv. (Only useful when you've got existing player data and you are enabling the SaveInventoryOnQuit option)
  • /multiinv mcexport - Exports MultiInv player data for the default world into the default world in Minecraft format.


  • 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.mcimport - Permission to use the mcimport command
  • multiinv.mcexport - Permission to use the mcexport 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!

    The problem with using cats tuxtwolib and the latest dev build of multiinv is that shield patterns lose the pattern on relog. Tipped arrows and potions lose their potion effects. Spawn eggs lose their mob data.

    Hmmm I didn't think that would fix it. I've had this issue before a few times...but usually it's a plugin fault. Are you using the latest 1.7.10 release? I assume you are. The only thing I can think of it give yourself the basic multiinv.exempt permission as well as (or instead of) the multiinv.exempt.* I don't think its a wildcard permission node.

    I tried what you suggested, still not working.

    This is my plugin list, maybe something is messing up?

    Using the latest MultiInv build (74) and an unofficial TuxTwoLib release by Cat7373 for 1.9.4. So far no issues. just waiting for somebody to actually join so I can test it fully. Cat7373 also has a 1.10 release however I cannot test that atm and unsure if it is compatable with the current MultiInv builds.

    EDIT: 1.9.4 functional. Perhaps not 100% bug-free but I've yet to encounter one.

    @HyPeXeLeD: Go

    I don't know if it would have any effect, but my groups.yml does not show extra line breaks between the defined groups....try this instead:

    - world
    - world_nether
    - world_the_end
    - Event
    - skyworld
    - creative_world #(or whatever you called it)

    Hello, i'm having issues to sperate my inventories. I'm running a Cauldron (1.7.10) server on Tekkit Legends modpack.

    I'm running also Pex, uSkyBlock and multiverse amongst other plugins.

    Simply, the inventory is cloned between all worlds (Including skyblock, and an extra world called "creative" i created after plugin was already working)


    - world
    - world_nether
    - world_the_end
    - Event
    - skyworld

    Pex Perm (Note the multiverse-inv was removed and isnt working):

        - -multiinv.exempt
        - -mvinv.bypass.*
        - '*'
          name: HyPeX
        - Survival
        - Members

    I cannot promote other plugins in this post, that would be wrong. I don't like that if they do that in plugins I maintain or own so I wont do it to other developers.
    Tux2 is a well respected developer and I'm sure he will at some stage update this.
    Unfortunately I couldn't wait for an update as our own plugin needs to be working with MC 1.10.X.

    uSkyblock: Official Website
    uSkyblock: Issue report
    Latest Dev version download: Latest
    uSkyblock server:

    I'm associated with uSkyblock (v2.0.1 and upwards) but can't be held responsible for mistakes you make.
