What is Sewers?
Sewers is a standalone generator that does not depend on other plugins for it to work. It simply generates "Sewers" on newly created chunk, meaning that you don't have to delete your precious world. If want a Sewer below a specific area, for say a city, you can simply input a command and Sewers does its magic! Sewers is still in its beta phase so expect a lot of improvements (including Spout support). The development team put's a lot of effort into Sewers and we have some great supporters!
What is Sewers and what can it do?
Well that's a very good question, Sewers is a plugin for CraftBukkit that generates massive dungeons! Sewers not only creates random tunnels but it also creates a variety of different elements for you to explore. Below are examples of different types of elements/features that Sewers will create when generated.
Tunnels are the base of Sewers. The tunnel is made up of the 3 different stone bricks introduced in Minecraft version 1.8 (Adventure update). The tunnel is filled with 1 layer of water, iron bars, cob webs, and a few extra surprises. Tunnels also connect to other tunnels which the player can freely explore.
Taller and not as long as tunnels, pits are large holes where water is 3 blocks or higher. Some pits have Iron Bars on the sides that allow water to flow in.
- Fallout shelters:
The fallout shelter is like a resting area for a players when they have to leave the server, so when the player comes back there won't be any creepers behind them. They contain bookshelves, torches, a bed, and a chest filled with items that may be useful for survival deep within the sewer.
These are massive holes that drop down deep within Minecraftia, may contain torches, broken stone slab staircases, ladders, and water. At the bottom of these Sinkholes, tunnels span off in all directions revealing more Sewer action! (And poo-poo!)
1x1 shafts that lead into the sewers, made up of the same material as the tunnels.
Kind of like fallout shelters, these building contain 1 Large Chest, 1 Crafting Table, and 1 Furnace. They also have Manholes built into them. The Large Chest can contain, Food, Armor, and Boats!
About the Abandoned Update
The Abandoned Update is on the horizon and almost ready for its debut release! The Abandoned Update includes many new features, improvements, and a fully re-coded generator. Lots of work is being put to the Abandoned Update and Sewers should enter the released phase. Below the currently added features:
- Abandoned Entrances:
The boarded off entrances to the abandoned areas of sewers. CAUTION breaking the warning sign may cause severe damage! Released in Pre-Release 3 (The Abandoned Update!)
Don't disturb the resting souls of the workers, watch out if you do! Released in Pre-Release 3 (The Abandoned Update!)
Blocked off tunnels with treasure at the end. Released in Pre-Release 3 (The Abandoned Update!)
- Spider Nests:
Web traps under tunnels that are filled with Cave Spiders! Watch your step! Released in Pre-Release 3 (The Abandoned Update!)
Long broken bridges that cross over lava. Don't fall off! Released in Pre-Release 3 (The Abandoned Update!)
More features are to be release in the Abandoned Update that have not been mentioned here.
- /sewer create - Creates a Sewer system with a Man Hole at your feet!
And as of the Christmas Dev-Build:
- /sewer create <size> - Creates a Sewer of the designated size (size is number of rooms so 2 would be 1 Entrance and 1 Tunnel)
- /sewer locate - Locates the nearest Sewer and shows you the coordinates
Sewers is fairly easy to install, simply drop it in your "/plugins" folder, extract the 2 files in the ZIP file, configure the Sewers config file and once satisfied run your server and enjoy Sewers! For more information on configuration you can visit the config page.
You can learn more about configuring Sewers here.

A word of warning
As we have mentioned before, Sewers generates MASSIVE dungeons! Heed our warning that Sewers is not responsible for any damages caused by players generating Sewers. To avoid any sort of problem with our plugin make sure you check that no buildings built underground are in the way of Sewers. You have been warned, and there is no UNDO button to reverse the effect of sewers.

Could you add a feature to make items in chests configurable?
This Plugin IS Compadible with the lastest version of craftbukkit, right?
This is an amazing plugin! i spent an hour exploring and i got a ton of diamonds! much more enjoyable than mining. keep it up this is really cool
Nice to see that this plugin is picking up again. :)
There is a "/sewer create" it generates a sewer, pretty sure if you add a number at the end it will determine the size.
Tried it on 1.4.7 and it worked great, no floating sewers. Though i did notice that they spawn in mountains and the ends stick wayyyyyy out in every direction.
Maybe add a maximum allowed spawn height option.
Would sewer generation by command work on a superflat world? I like to use WE to cut out pieces of plugin-generated architecture that I like, and leave the rest out.
If it doesn't work because sewers won't spawn in air, perhaps you could add a "force" option to spawn a sewer system in mid-air.
Awesome to hear! I loved this plugin, cant wait to see development continue
The rewrite will need to take place because I am fairly sure this plugin relied heavily on cardinal directions instead of coordinates. I believe some update changed them. Also minecraft and bukkit have changed a lot since the second generator was made. It is about time to make the next generator with no random intersecting sewers for a clean experience.
Version 0.5 should be out soon. It fixes sewers spawning in the air and adds support for 1.5.2. Though I think I need to rewrite pretty much the whole plugin.
I hate looking at my 1 year old code.
How can I ever apologize for abandoning this? I am truly sorry about the inconvenience. There should be an update with some bug fixes in the near future.
Ive got paypal bucks for someone to fix it. Really love this mod but the in air sewers are too much. pm me
May I know how it bugs? (Any pics or error log?)
I really wish someone would take over this project or the developer would fix it
It will run on a server, but that huge bug where sewers spawn in the sky and drop water and lava everywhere is the big reason i wont include it on my server
Wow, this is just awesome, I am definately putting this in my server! :D
It's pretty cool, but rooms are not even close to each other, there is walls and large masses of stone between rooms and finding them is very hard. Would be awesome if it worked properly!
so this plugin would be great other than the fact that sewers sometimes spawn at max build height, raining down large sections of lava to make the biggest lag generators ever seen!
but seriously I love this plugin and it works.... 80%? Just randomly I get floating sewers and its just too much to worry about. Im a novice coder and looking at the plugin I dont even know where to begin in.. just stopping it from doing that.
does anything think they could take a look and see about stopping it from doing that? This is a really great world gen otherwise... Its sad that the best world gens always become inactive :D
More than likely that is a bug. It used to spawn in chests on past versions. Also I just realized ironicly, the abandoned update became abandoned :P
Can someone take this over? World generators are always great but the first to be abandoned :C
Is there a link to a source maybe?
This works on mcpc+ 1.4.7 except chests dont seem to generate and it just drops the contents on the floor, unless that was intended. Im guessing the ids have just changed since 1.2
Likely your server could not load all the generation at once. You need more RAM.
