    Multiverse 2 - World Creation/Management/Teleportation & More​
    Current Version: 2.2-AB

    Multiverse 2 is a ground up rewrite of the popular Multiverse plugin for CraftBukkit. There are many new features, the biggest one being the much better usability and cleaner code! MV2 has been in the works for over 2 months and given the size of it, the developers are confident that you'll find a small bug or two. Please come into our IRC channel and discuss politely with us and we'll get it resolved quick-fastly!

    Looking for the old version that runs on CraftBukkit 1000? We don't have it anymore :( Here's an archive of the old help post. If you're a new user, we REALLY recommend using Multiverse 2..

    • Fixed the 'Kick on Teleport' issue.
    Version 1.6.4

    • Fixed 0 Price Portals
    • Fixed a bug with new Portals
    • Updated for iConomy 5 (You will need to update to iCo 5)
    • Improved the PVP Setup
      • Now you no longer have to set the server.properties PVP variable to true... this is now completely done via the worlds config and properly stops PVP rather than preventing the damage from being applied.
    Version 1.6.3

    • Update for Minecraft 1.5 and CraftBukkit build 733
    Version 1.6.2

    • Contains updates/features which were introduced in 1.5
    Version 1.6 - Thanks to 'fernferret'

    • Updated for CB Builds 600+
    Version 1.5 - Permissions 2.1+ - (V1.5 - 02/03/2011)[/U]

    • Fixed whitelist/blacklisting once and for all :), thanks to @ledhead900
    • Add permission node 'multiverse.portal.exempt' -- Basically means they don't have to pay the cost of the portal... this is useful for Donors and such.
    • Updated to use iConomy 4.1 -- Would be great if I can get feedback on this... as usual I can only test solo.
    Version 1.4 - Permissions 2.0 & 2.1 - (V1.4 - 26/02/2011 - 01:11 AM GMT)

    • Should be easier on high pop servers now
      • Only checks if a player is within a Portal everytime he changes BLOCK Coordinate instead of every single pixel footstep he/she takes.
    • Now Supports Permissions 2.1 -- Both 2.1 and 2.0 support have seperate JARs, so get the right one.
      • Also commands are properly disabled when a Permissions plugin is not found and it will alert the player trying to use the Command.
    Version 1.3 - Permissions 2.0 - (V1.3 - 24/02/2011 - 02:31 AM GMT)

    • Removed the 'Stupidly Long Constructor'
    • Fixed an error which was loading portals that were on a non existent world which caused errors later on.
    Version 1.2.2 - (V1.2.2 - 23/02/2011 - 03:05 AM GMT)

    • Nothing much just updated so it works with Minecraft Beta 1.3, I suggest you don't use a lower Multiverse build than v1.2.2 otherwise it won't work and errors will occur.
    Version 1.2.1 - (V1.2.1 - 20/02/2011 - 23:35 PM GMT)

    • Changed over to the new Entity Damage...

    TGF, maino, aTxT and 58 others like this.

    Yeah. This is actually the only plugin giving me an error on 1.3 :p

    There was no BUKKIT way for me to disable Monsters/Animals so I had to dive into Minecraft code, however because of Notch obfuscating his code... the two variables I need have changed from K & L to D & E, so the plugins shitting bricks :).
  4. Offline


    Yeah, it's all good. I actually expected way more than 1 to be shitting bricks so I'm pretty amazed.

    Do they do that just because they can?
  5. Offline


    haha, sounds like Bukkit should be remapping the obfuscated stuff over to plugin-friendly static names more regularly huh? XD

    anyway, while I'm just as impatiently waiting for your update as everyone else, I still hope you'll take whatever time you need to do it right XD
    --- merged: Feb 23, 2011 2:56 AM ---
    Well, they plan to support official modding eventually, but there's no timeline on that yet. Bukkit and hMod technically break the TOS for MC, but it's not enforced, probably because of all the great ideas the community contributes (betterlight and McRegion anyone? XD )
  6. Offline


    Updated to 1.2.2 - Don't expect much :), this was just to make it compatible with MC 1.3

    Just incase I haven't posted it yet... I think I have but oh well.

    I don't intend to add new features or update MultiVerse in its current form apart from Supporting new Bukkit builds etc... the reason for this is splitting the plugin down and making it more manageable, so feel free to suggest ideas and such they just won't make it into this combined build.
  7. Offline


    sweet. thank you
  8. Offline


    Mind removing the deprecated constructor from your plugin at some point as well? I understand it will break compatibility with older Bukkit versions, but a second JAR would be helpful.

    Or source code... Maybe it's a lot to ask, everyone has a different philosophy here I understand, but it would let some developers keep this plugin compatible with their bleeding-edge CraftBukkit compiles.

    Wow, thanks for the fast update :D
    Will the new modular version support world creation seeds when you get it ready for release?

    I am just making a pure judgement call based on the AVRG server, using spare parts, My server just needs a new mobo so I can switch to intel I already have everything else.

    But for instance yea sure if only like 12 ppl it prob wont be much of an issue providing you pc can handle it.
    It only one you start getting in ecsess of 100 players with 38+ on at a time my advice is kind of needed.
  12. Offline


    That's why it's good as an optional feature though. There's certainly cases where it's a bad (horrible even) idea, but there's plenty of other cases where it works fine :)

    with 1.3's new McRegion built in, the server load has dropped even more though :D
  13. Offline


    I plan to, was trying to get it sorted for the 1.3 update but some errors kept propping up so rather than making people wait I just reverted the Constructor change and uploaded it. Apologies if the spam is starting to become a pain, its starting to annoy myself during testing :).

    Regarding source code I don't intend to release it for the current form of MultiVerse as its a complete mess, however for the individual plugins I do and have already setup a GitHub ready for it.
    --- merged: Feb 23, 2011 3:34 AM ---
    Yup I plan to support quite a bit in the new version, such as Custom Chunk Generators as well which is what DinnerBone has been working on, it's not complete yet but its looking great... So props to him.
    --- merged: Feb 23, 2011 3:37 AM ---
    hmm will take a look at it although from the quick summary page it seems like it relies on the creature_spawn event... this can be taxing on the system and can cause unnecessary load as this waits for a creature to spawn to trigger an event and then kills the monsters.

    The current method which MultiVerse uses is the same way which the server.properties value is used. It tells the World to SPAWN or NOT SPAWN monsters or animals rather than killing them upon spawn.

    major bug... seems MV is regenerating the worlds from scratch using the old seeds rather than converting the existing worlds to the new format. This is basically wiping the worlds and reverting them to their original, unedited state.
  15. Offline


    You know you could just run all your worlds thru MC SP once to convert them then copy them back to your SMP sever.

    (As allways tho if you dont bother to keep proper backups its just bite your lip and rebuild)
  16. Offline


    Need to look into this, only seeing a few people with this issue so I'm not quite sure whats causing it.

    However this is no doubt an issue with the CraftBukkit MultiWorld code instead, as MV just utilises that.
  17. Offline


    i'm having the problem with the reset worlds aswell.
  18. Offline


    My work around was to pull the un-converted worlds over to singleplayer, convert them there, then pull the converted worlds back to my server. Worked great.

    I haven't tried removing MV and letting Bukkit convert world by itself... I should just to confirm if it's MV or Bukkit... give me a few minutes :)
    --- merged: Feb 23, 2011 4:25 AM ---
    Ok, confirmed. MV is the one causing it. I restored my un-converted backup, removed MV, and the server did "Converting" rather than "Preparing" and when I logged in all my changes were there as expected.
  19. Offline


    yeah thats what i did. it seemed to work wonderfully
  20. Offline


    Ok the following is for the those that are not exactly sure what MultiVerse does and such.

    MultiVerse DOES NOT load the worlds, it does not create worlds, it does not convert the worlds etc...

    MultiVerse tells CraftBukkit to create a world... import a world etc.

    So if what you did fixed it then that's because of CraftBukkits multiworld feature being bugged and not supporting the new converting, from what I gather what you did there was you loaded each world up individually as the primary world on its own through Minecraft.

    Sorry if the reply sounds dickish.
  21. Offline


    No, I understand what you're saying, but without MV, MC Server converts just fine. Which means there's a different call to convert than there is to build a new one, and you're calling the build a new one function instead of the convert function on existing worlds. Although certainly Bukkit could double-check inside it's own build a new world code to verify if it exists already, that's not what they did, they separated both functions.
    --- merged: Feb 23, 2011 5:34 AM ---
    I opened a thread over in Discussion and Support about Bukkit mishandling multi-world. We'll see what comes of it (probably nothing, plugin devs are way better at fixing things XD)
  22. Offline


    Theres only one function to create/import worlds and thats this one -


    Unless something else has been added which I can't seem to find in the java docs.

    You'll want to make a bug report at http://leaky.bukkit.org and just post a link to the forum post I guess, or just detail the issue in leaky bukkit.

    it won't let me file bugs there, they have it locked down
  27. Offline


    hmm wierd, can you pastebin the server log from when the server started to this error.

    The line its erroring on is trying to verify you ahve the Permissions, my guess you're not runnig Permissions 2.0
  28. Offline


    Sorry about the constructor errors, those plugin devs have yet to use the new ones.

    Using permissions 2.1

  29. Offline


    the problem is due to permissions 2.1, i had the same problem when using /mvtp, but when i backdated to permissions 2.0, it worked fine. hope its just a quick fix :) thank you for this awesome plugin!

    hope this log helps, i'm a little new to this.

    Anyone continuing to use Permissions 2.0 with Bukkit versions supporting MC1.3 will basically be giving all players * permissions

    They upgraded Permissions to 2.1 to fix that and changed their own plugin API for other plugin developers in the process XD
  31. Offline


    Confused as to how Permissions 2.0 is giving all players * on 1.3... its based off bukkit api not minecrafts code.

    Will look into updating permissions then.
