Download v0.6.0


SkyBukkit seamlessly brings SkyBlock to Bukkit servers. It allows players to easily and effectively play SkyBlock alone or with their friends on any Bukkit server, even when a survival world already exists.

For example, on a standard Bukkit server, a player might decide that he has had enough survival gameplay for the day. By simply typing “/island home” the player can teleport to his completely-separate SkyBlock and get to work there. Furthermore, the player would automatically have his inventory, armor, xp, hunger, health, saturation and exhaustion switched, just like he had logged onto another, SkyBlock-dedicated, server.

This same player could then just use “/island spawn” to jump right back into his normal survival environment, while all of his items, etc. are switched back.

While plugins like this do already exist, they all have far fewer features and those projects are outdated with their authors vanished off of the face of the earth. This project attempts to remedy the problem, while offering a server experience like no other.

This plugin has been re-written completely from scratch to achieve maximum performance and compatibility on Bukkit servers.

SkyBukkit depends on WorldGuard for it's island protection ability. Please ensure you have it (and WorldEdit, which WorldGuard depends on) installed.

You are also probably going to want to install a plugin like MultiVerse, which will allow you to create a separate world for SkyBlock instances.

PLEASE NOTE: It is highly inadvisable to make your SkyBukkit world an existing survival world. If you do, it will create a host of problems, for example:

  • When a player creates a SkyBlock, a giant area of land will become un-editable by other players, as it infringes on their protected SkyBlock land area.
  • When a player deletes a SkyBlock, a giant area of land from sky to bedrock will be deleted, creating a massive void pit.

Instead, a separate world should be created (using a plugin similar to MultiVerse) which is using the cleanroom world generator.


Simply place the plugin in the standard Bukkit plugin directory and it will automatically generate its configuration the next time the server is run. The default configuration is fine for normal use, but feel free to tweak it for a unique server experience (all available options are available below).

Players simply use “/island create” to create their own SkyBlock instance. They are automatically teleported to their new island and their inventory is switched for them. To delete or replace the SkyBlock they use “/island destroy” or "/island replace" respectively.

Say a player wanted to invite his friend over to his SkyBlock so they could play together. Said player would use a party. Just by typing “/island invite <friend>” they can create a new party and invite the friend to join. The friend would accept or decline the invitation be using “/island accept” or “/island decline”, respectively. The friend could leave at any time with “/island leave”.

That is just a snapshot of all available commands. They, with their accompanying descriptions and permission nodes, can be found further down.


Please Note: All of the below configuration options are compulsory. If any are omitted, they will be re-generated next time the server starts.

center: x:0X co-ordinate of where the center island should be placed.
center: z:0Z co-ordinate of where the center island should be placed.
pvpEnabled:falseWhether or not PVP is allows on islands.
switchInventories:trueWhether or not SkyBukkit will auto-switch inventories.

items:(LIST)List of all items in the SkyBlock chest.
items: id:(INTEGER)ID of an item in the chest.
