What does it do?
Ever wished you could run more on less? Multiworlds taking up all your memory and noone visits them very often?
The solution is now simple: install this plugin! This plugin does one thing, and one thing only, prevents spawn chunks being loaded into memory for all worlds on the server.
What does this mean in practice?
It means you can run a 2 person server on as little as 32mb ram (including 8-10 lightweight plugins). It also means that the memory impact from having 10+ worlds enabled at once on your server is reduced to an absolute minimum.
How to install
There is no configuration, it is literally drag and drop. Just install the plugin, stop the server, and do a full restart; the plugin is now enabled, and you should notice a dramatic drop in memory footprint.
There are no known errors to using this plugin other than increased server performance ;)
Not so much a conflict - but if you are trying to run in a low-memory situation, any plugin that force-loads chunks will ruin that for you.
This still works for 1.5.2 rite?
It works fine for me, it has definitely helped my server a lot. In my opinion, I would recommend that you get this plugin.
@HDfunctions THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ANSWERING! I've been waiting for MONTHS and nobody answered except you. Thank you HDfunctions! Do you recommend I remove it then? I'm sure a future update of Bukkit might render it useless.
April 11th of LAST year.
If it was abandoned it wouldn't have had an update April 11th...
This plugin has been abandoned by codename_B, and I also don't think he will be working on this plugin anymore. However, like c0dejunkie said... It works fine with all versions of bukkit without the need of updating this plugin.
Can anyone pls answer my question??
@ c0dejunkie It is the same build used for the raspberry pi. But, a few builds back of the craftbukkit before the beta was approved, NoSpawnChunks would reduce ram usage to 50mb. Now it doesn't reduce it at all. Does anyone know when the dev is going to update this? Or is it an abandoned project? I have messages the dev and he answered once but now it looks like he's ignoring me. Not trying to bash the dev but it looks like my messages are being ignored or the dev is just busy IRL. Also, does anyone know any plugins that do the same thing that NoSpawnChunks does? I need to find a replacement because without NoSpawnChunks my raspberry pi server does not function correctly. I also can't just rollback to the build of craftbukkit that it used to wok on because it was an unstable build and I'm now running the beta. Thank you to anyone who replies to this long post.
this plugin is working perfectly with the latest dev bukkit build MC1.5.1, so not sure if its a different build used for Raspberry Pi, but for bukkit it still works great despite it saying that it only works with 1.4.7
Is the dev planning on updating this or is it an abandoned project? Can anyone please answer? Like cyoungmi says I need this plugin to run my Raspberry Pi Minecraft server adequately.
this plugin is still running great on my server spigot 1.5.1 but i have come into a small problem with it.... is there any way for you to enable a configuration for this plugin that will allow users to either enable or disable what your plugin does on certain worlds. I use multiverse and one of my worlds is a hunger games world, and the plugin that handles the the hunger games is called SurvivalGames and it has a wall of signs that show the users stats for the current match, and because the worlds spawn is being unloaded by your plugin the signs do not seem to work anymore once the chunk is unloaded. Multiverse does have an option to keep spawn in memory but your plugin seems to override it, so I would like to be able to disable your plugin for that world only and still leave it running for my other worlds. if there is anyway for you to add the ability to disable your plugin for certain worlds then it would be greatly appreciated
It would be nice to have this plugin updated for 1.5.1 Many people use this so they can run a server on the Raspberry Pi. Worked fine for the 1.4.7 server, but not for the 1.5.1 builds.
If you could update this, I would give you a hug.
The nospawnchunks plugin doesn't reduce memory usage for me as of Craftbukkit beta 1.5.1! :'( Can you please fix it? I can't run my server properly without the plugin...
Can you please update the nospawnchunks plugin to fix the arrows bug please? I want to use it on my server because it reduced ram usage but when I shoot arrows its like there is a wall in front of me. Me and my friends cant play properly like that. Can you please update it? Thanks. I am using the latest craftbukkit dev builds
Sorry if this is a stupid question, but the spawn chunks are basically the chunks located at spawn?
There's no need for an update ;) Works perfectly
Please update this plugin!!!!!
