AddQuartz will add chunks to any nether chunks in defined worlds it has not done so previously on, this is intended for use on servers with pre-made nethers from before the introduction of quartz to allow them to have a 1.5-ready nether without resetting their nether.

But it could also be used by new servers to double the amount of quartz in the nether!


  • Add Quartz
  • Only add quartz to config-defined nethers
  • Does not double-add to chunks
  • Limited processing per-second to help avoid lag


No commands


No permissions


# Add world names that should have quartz added here.  They must be of type NETHER for it to work
    - world_nether

Simply add all the nether worlds you want processed to this list, and as chunks are loaded they will be processed.

Notes on the plugin

  • It processes chunks as they load, so you can leave it in and forget about it
  • It will keep track of all chunks it has processed in a file in it's plugin folder
  • It will process a maximum of 10 chunks per second (may seem slow, but stops lag)
  • It will write to file on average every 100 chunks, please note this SSD users.
  • It will put more quartz down in chunks that already have it if you run it over a 1.5 chunk (feature?). Please note this and pre-gen your 1.4 map if you do not want this.
  • It will only spawn quartz in netherrack, player placed or natural, so no floating blocks of quartz will be spawned (unless you had floating netherrack!)
