Title Image

Shipwrecked World Generator is a world generator designed for Bukkit. It generates islands of various sizes, including many realistic terrain features as further described on this page.

Highlighted Features:

  • Realistic biome transitions
  • Multiworld support
  • Encourages exploration
  • Randomly generated loottable structures (WIP)
  • Extensive cave systems, discouraging strip mining, and encouraging exploration



  • use /mvcreate worldname normal -g ShipGen
  • Note: This build of Multiverse is required if you prefer not to have a bunch of errors in your log when editing structures. (The AwesomeBuild has no issues other than console spamming)


  • use /mw create worldname plugin:ShipGen

Bukkit YML (Must be used for main world)

    Due to the current direction of Minecraft, I have decided to discontinue development on this plugin. I learned a lot from other open-source projects during the development of Shipwrecked. My repository will remain open for cloning. You are welcome to email me with any questions at [email protected]

    I've been watching this plugin for a few months now.... glad to hear you are continuing development! As soon as it is updated I'm going to test it out and possibly use it....

    Yes, fire can be cold.

    Hey all! Wow that was a while without development. If it still works with 1.7.9, that's incredible! I feel like I have let you all down, so I plan on updating this soon and releasing a more optimized version. (and finish structures haha)

    Hope to see you all soon!

    It would be great if you could have shipwrecks randomly spawn in existing worlds.

    I love the plugin, but I had a problem. When I used it to generate maps, it has very noticable and ugly chunk issue. It would seemingly create like islands out of islands if that makes sense. If you look at it via dynmap it looks like a poorly created worldpainter map. But I love the trees and river beds.

    Is there a way that I can make it so that emeralds/diamonds/gold aren't so abundant? I had no idea it was giving out tons of ore... it nearly killed my servers economy.

    Hey I personally love the concept for this generator! Currently I am putting together a server that would really benefit from worlds that are like this. Some Concerns I have with it currently are the trees, they seem a bit too round, however other than that i can't wait to see this completed! If you get the chance make sure to message me when you are finished with the structures so I can try it out! Thanks!

    If you are using a preview build, starting somwhere in there they stop being forward compatible. I will try to resolve this issue before the official release, but for now 1.6.4 is only supported on the stable builds, not the snapshot.
