Minecraft: Multiverse Core Plugin Commands

In my last post I talked about how I installed the CraftBukkit server with the Multiverse (core, portal, nether, and sign) and PermissionBukkit plugins. Once all that is up and running you need to know the commands use the features of the new plugins. I’m going go over what I think are the most important Multiverse Core commands you’ll need to know to allow you to add and modify worlds on your new server. All this information is available on the Multiverse Core Wiki. I just wanted to cover it here so I could add my own notes. In the next post I’ll go over the commands for the Multiverse Portal plugin and show how to create portals in your worlds.

Common Mulitverse Core Commands

The following commands are the ones you’ll probably be using most often while playing in the worlds on the CraftBukkit server.

Less Common But Useful Multiverse Core Commands

Creating New Worlds

/mv create {NAME} {ENV} [-s SEED] [-g GENERATOR[:ID]] [-t TYPE] [-a true|false]

Creates a new world on your server

Required Parameters:

{NAME} -The name of the new world you want to create. If you want to use a name with spaces you will need to put quotes around the name. ex: “My New World”

{ENV} – The type of environment you want to create. Valid choices are: NORMAL, NETHER, or END

Optional Parameters

-s SEED – If you want to use a specific seed enter the ID here

-g GENERATOR – If you have a custom world generator installed on your server you can specify it here

-t TYPE – The type of world you want to create. Valid options are: NORMAL, FLAT, or VERSION_1_1 (only if you are running a version 1.2.x server)

-a TRUE | FALSE – This parameter lets you choose if you want structures to be created in the new world. TRUE if want structures, FALSE if you don’t. If left out this parameter defaults to TRUE

Examples

/mv create MyNewWorld normal

Create a new world named MyNewWorld using the normal environment

/mv create NewWorld2 normal -s 1.2.3abc -t flat

Importing Worlds

/mv import {NAME} {ENV} [-g GENERATOR[:ID]]

This command allows you to import worlds that you have already created either on another server or in a offline game. You will need to copy the world folder into the CraftBukkit server folder before you try to import it.

{ENV} – The type of environment that the world uses: NORMAL, NETHER, or END

GENERATOR[:ID]
If the world was created using a custom generator you must specify that here

Examples

/mv import MyGreatWorld normal

Import the world named MyGreatWorld that was created using a normal environment.

Reloading the Worlds

/mv reload

This will reload all the worlds in the worlds.yml file. Handy if you make changes in the .yml file.

/mv unload {WOLRD}

This command will unload the speicified world from the server. This might help if you want to free up resources.

/mv set spawn

This command allows you to change the spawn point in a world. Just move your character to the place you want the new spawn point to be and enter the command. Now when someone transports to the world this will be where they appear.
