Download v0.6.0


SkyBukkit seamlessly brings SkyBlock to Bukkit servers. It allows players to easily and effectively play SkyBlock alone or with their friends on any Bukkit server, even when a survival world already exists.

For example, on a standard Bukkit server, a player might decide that he has had enough survival gameplay for the day. By simply typing “/island home” the player can teleport to his completely-separate SkyBlock and get to work there. Furthermore, the player would automatically have his inventory, armor, xp, hunger, health, saturation and exhaustion switched, just like he had logged onto another, SkyBlock-dedicated, server.

This same player could then just use “/island spawn” to jump right back into his normal survival environment, while all of his items, etc. are switched back.

While plugins like this do already exist, they all have far fewer features and those projects are outdated with their authors vanished off of the face of the earth. This project attempts to remedy the problem, while offering a server experience like no other.

This plugin has been re-written completely from scratch to achieve maximum performance and compatibility on Bukkit servers.


SkyBukkit Release v0.6.0

Release v0.6.0 contains a number of accessibility fixes.

SkyBukkit Release v0.5.14

Release v0.5.14 removes some super-hacky CB-dependant code, amoung other things.

SkyBukkit Release v0.5.13

Release v0.5.13 contains serveral technical fixes as well as some anti-cheat item duplicaiton protection.



SkyBukkit depends on WorldGuard for it's island protection ability. Please ensure you have it (and WorldEdit, which WorldGuard depends on) installed.

You are also probably going to want to install a plugin like MultiVerse, which will allow you to create a separate world for SkyBlock instances.

PLEASE NOTE: It is highly inadvisable to make your SkyBukkit world an existing survival world. If you do, it will create a host of problems, for example:

  • When a player creates a SkyBlock, a giant area of land will become un-editable by other players, as it infringes on their protected SkyBlock land area.
  • When a player deletes a SkyBlock, a giant area of land from sky to bedrock will be deleted, creating a massive void pit.

Instead, a separate world should be created (using a plugin similar to MultiVerse) which is using the cleanroom world generator.


Simply place the plugin in the standard Bukkit plugin directory and it will automatically generate its configuration the next time the server is run. The default configuration is fine for normal use, but feel free to tweak it for a unique server experience (all available options are available below).

Players simply use “/island create” to create their own SkyBlock instance. They are automatically teleported to their new island and their inventory is switched for them. To delete or replace the SkyBlock they use “/island destroy” or "/island replace" respectively.

Say a player wanted to invite his friend over to his SkyBlock so they could play together. Said player would use a party. Just by typing “/island invite <friend>” they can create a new party and invite the friend to join. The friend would accept or decline the invitation be using “/island accept” or “/island decline”, respectively. The friend could leave at any time with “/island leave”.

That is just a snapshot of all available commands. They, with their accompanying descriptions and permission nodes, can be found further down.


Please Note: All of the below configuration options are compulsory. If any are omitted, they will be re-generated next time the server starts.

center: x:0X co-ordinate of where the center island should be placed.
center: z:0Z co-ordinate of where the center island should be placed.
pvpEnabled:falseWhether or not PVP is allows on islands.
switchInventories:trueWhether or not SkyBukkit will auto-switch inventories.
world:worldName of the world where the islands should be stored.
partyMaxSize:0The maximum number of players allowed in a single party if INF (0)
islandHeight:128Y co-ordinate of where newly-generated islands should be placed.
islandSpacing:120Distance between generated islands.
islandSize:100Size of the protection “bubble” between SkyBlocks.
items:(LIST)List of all items in the SkyBlock chest.
items: id:(INTEGER)ID of an item in the chest.
items: dmg:(INTEGER)Damage value of an item in the chest.

    Questions before I download: 1.) Is it compatible with Multiverse? 2.) Can you do /is create, /is home, etc. instead of /island create, /island home, etc.? 3.) Is it compatible with Minecraft 1.8.-1.8.1?

    i am unable to set my fresh cleanroom skyblock world to my skyblock world in the skybukkit config, it keeps saying invalid or missing world from config, and changes the skyblock world to my main world, during startup.
    im using this plugin on 1.7.9 ro2 :/

    Hi, OuTlAwMaRk here.

    I was testing out the plug-in which is great. There is only one problem though. I had to switch the Inventories to false because I have Multiverse-Inventories installed already. After this, I tested the plug-in again, and I saw this...

    When I teleport to my island I keep my items from when I was at the Lobby/Spawn for my Skyblock World. So I tested with a sign. I gave myself a sign in the Lobby, and I typed /island home. This teleported me to my island home, but I still had the sign in my inventory.

    I can't enable the Switch Inventories because I have Multi-Verse Inventories and it causes bugs in the server. Can anyone help me?

    Also, I need to know the permission nodes for other players to interact with the plug-in. If you could do that please? Thanks!

    <<reply 2326679>>

    By default this plugin uses an existing NORMAL world to create the skyblock islands in. To fix this problem of the world beneath, I used the bSpace generator:

    1. You MUST setup your permissions before creating an island!
    2. This new world MUST not be your only world OR your first and main one. It MUST be a slave world.
    3. Do Not Allow the "/is create" permission in your new SkyBukkit world! It will cause a big error! Only Allow "/is create" in your main world.
    4. This plugin tracks players by updating a true or false value for current world in the data.yml file each time a player executes an /island home, create, tp or spawn command.  If a player bypasses these commands with /spawn /tp /home /warp /mv /world etc, the plugin will no longer be able to track them and faults will occur .
    5. Unless you know what you are doing. Do not attempt to create a skybukkit spawn in your new world as if your players illegally immigrate to it, faults will occur as detailed in warning no.4. Instead, create your spawn at a remote location within your main world.

    How to:
    1. Download skybukkit to your /plugins folder.
    2. Download bSpace to your /plugins folder.
    3. Go into your server and type /reload.
    4. Edit /plugins/bspace/config.yml Use the bSpace Configuration File settings listed at the bottom of my post.
    5. Edit /plugins/bspace/ids.yml Use the bSpace ID's file settings listed below my post. Where it says mySkyBukkitWorldName im obviously telling you to use the name of the world you will be creating. The colon is important.... ie: <name>:
    6. Go into your server and type /reload
    7. Whilst still in your server type /mv create mySkyBukkitWorldName NORMAL -g bSpace:mySkyBukkitWorldName
    8. Edit /plugins/skybukkit/config.yml Use the SkyBukkit Configuration File settings listed below my post.
    9. Go back into your server and type /reload
    10. Whilst still in your server enable your creative mode with /gm 1 and then type /mv tp mySkyBukkitWorldName
    11. You may be prompted that it is unsafe but with your fly enabled you with creative you should be safe so type /mvconfirm

    Now if everything went ok you will have your skyblock, if you see planets or asteroids, or suffocate then you did something wrong. You should now use world edit or creative to make an island at the co-ordinates you arrived at. If you don't remember  them, just repeat step 10.

    Note: The spawn referred to by this plugin is your main worlds sawn.

    How do I get rid of the flat land it makes? When I look down from the island I can see it, there is a village too. There are big chucks missing from the flatland just under the island.

    Panda: check out Ultimate Skyblock instead. Seems to Work on 1.7.

    Villermen: if you use multiverse /mvm set respawnWorld world while in sky, will make players spawn in the default world when they die.
