CreativeParkour - Create maps with friends & play


This plugin is no longer maintained, sorry.

The website is no longer online, but you can still visit it thanks to Internet Archive:


CreativeParkour is a plugin that allows your players to create, publish, share, download and play fun parkour maps in secure areas. Players can compare their jump skills in parkour maps they build!
This plugin has unique features like player ghosts (inspired by Mario Kart) that will add fun and competitiveness to your server with a cool and easy-to-use parkour game. Downloading CreativeParkour will instantly allow your players to build their own parkours and have fun with community-made parkour maps from, for free!

  • Players can build maps with friends (with "/cp invite <player>") and easily manage the contributor list ("/cp contributors")
  • Special signs to set spawn, start and end points, unlimited checkpoints, death height, death blocks (these signs disappear and are not special blocks like in other plugins, so all the blocks can be used to make good looking maps!)

These commands are the 3 most important to know (The Big Three):
/cp play [map name] : Displays the map list to choose a map and play on it (or directly teleports the player to the specified map).
/cp create : Puts the player in a new map in creation mode. They can also come back to their last edited map and find maps in which their were invited by using this command.
/cp leave : If the player is in a map, teleports them where they were before playing CreativeParkour.

This data is only used to make global statistics about CreativeParkour that are publicly displayed on this page. If you want to disable data collection by Metrics, set "enable data collection" to false in configuration.yml
