What is PixelPrinter

PixelPrinter is a demonstration of what you can do using THIS resource. Using this plugin, you can load images or gifs to your server, either by using blocks or maps. This plugin can download images or gifs, resize them, and allow you to easily create Sky-Boxes, Movies, and pixel art all over your server.


  • Create images, movies, or pixel art using in game blocks
  • Create skin statues.
  • Supports JPegs, PNGs, and Gifs!
  • Custom resourcepack support.
  • Works on All Versions





Custom resourcepack support:

As of the 1.0.14 patch, Pixelprinter allows for server-wide resourcepack support. Using this feature will allow for better quality and accuracy of images when using custom resourcepacks. To add custom resourcepack support, do the following:

  1. Go into the <Server>/plugins/PixelPrinter/custom_textures/ directory.
  2. In a new window, open the resourcepack zip file and navigate to the Minecraft>textures>blocks folder.
  3. In there, drag all textures into the custom_textures directory.

And that's it. Pixelprinter will handle the rest.

This plugin uses bStats:

bStats is a metrics service that allows me to to see how many servers use my plugins, how many players they have, and which countries use my plugin the most. All information is anonymized, so no information can be directly linked to you, and instead is added to the average of all severs that use the plugin.
