    DungeonsXL is a server mod that allows you to instantiate worlds.

    Its main goal is to offer a way to use a world in a set state multiple times by a player (like for a jump'n'run), a group of players (e.g. for a quest dungeon, an adventure map or a PvE arena) or even by groups of groups of players (e.g. for PvP arenas). DungeonsXL also provides custom game mechanics to make these worlds interesting. It might also be helpful if you want players to build something in creative mode quickly and uncomplicated without any influence on their main world data (inventory, levels etc.).

    • Create as many dungeons as you wish!
    • The instantiation system allows dungeons to be played by multiple groups of players at the same time without clashes.
    • Dungeons are accessable through portals in one of your main worlds. Read more...
    • Invite players to edit single dungeons without the need to give them any further permissions. Read more...
    • Allow players to build in creative mode safely without any influence to their game progress in the main worlds!
    • Set checkpoints, breakable blocks, triggers, messages and much more through signs in the edit mode. Read more...
    • Per dungeon configuration (you should try that after you became familiar with the basics of this plugin). Read more...
    • Link multiple floors together to create large dungeons with multiple levels. Read more...
    • Use a dungeon as a tutorial and give them a PEX group when they finish it. Read more...
    • Players can play the dungeon with their own items or with configurable classes.
    • The classes support doges!
    • Mob waves:
    • PvP
    • Time limits
    • A built-in custom mob system and support for MythicMobs. Read more...
    • A powerful API:
    • Different game types allow you to use your maps dynamically for different purposes. Read more...
    • Announcements sothat users can join the next match easily. Read more...
    • ...and many more!
    The concept
    If you want to learn how to use DungeonsXL step by step, please have a look at the wiki page getting started.

    An English language file will be generated automatically when you run DungeonsXL for the first time. You can change all messages as you please.
    Detailed information and inofficial translations in other languages including Chinese, Spanish and Italian are available here.


    DungeonsXL works with 1.8.8 and higher. However, support for 1.13 / 1.12.x / 1.11.x / 1.10.x / 1.9.x has a higher priority than support for 1.8.8. Old builds that support older versions are unusable for production environments. See here for detailed information. Some cosmetic features require the Spigot API and will therefore not work with CraftBukkit.

    Technical inclusion and consideration of 1.14.x, 1.15.x, 1.16.x and 1.17.x features are present in the latest 0.18 snapshot builds. See their changelogs for an overview over the caveats.

    DungeonsXL requires ItemsXL to run (please check the startup message or changelog).

    Known incompatibilities
    • Corpses
    • PerWorldInventories
    Many incompatibilities can be fixed with PerWorldPlugins (fork for 1.8+). Try to add the incompatible plugins only to the worlds where you need them.

    Addons and integrations
    Would you like to support us and our work?
    If you appreciate the time and work we dedicated to create this server mod in the last years, we thankfully accept any kind of support you would like to offer.

    First of all, DungeonsXL uses the Plugin Metrics service by Hidendra and SpigotUpdater by inventivetalent (thank you very much for these services <3 ). It is great motivation to see that our plugin is actually used by a few servers and some of the statistics are really helpful and taken into consideration if it comes to the future of the project. Therefore, please do not disable Metrics.

    The reason DungeonsXL exists is, besides my passion for programming, our own server. We have maintained it and paid for it without a shop and any other pay to win methods since 2011. We're also proud that all of our plugins have been released for free under open source licenses. If you'd like to support us, please consider donating.


    Thank you very much for your support!

    Plugin itself could be good but missing a lot of features required to say it a real dungeon plugin. For new server admins I didn't recommend it at all. You have to make a lot workarounds with denizen or skript, even though, your player will randomly lost their equipment if you didn't apply gamerule (which isn't mentioned at any tutorial at all). If you have large community and never dealt with dungeons problems, stop there and rethink your idea with some world manager instead. It'll save you a lot of crying players for their items and tens of hours to make them flawlessly playable. In case of support, it's poor, usually you can shortcut support to 'deal with it' or 'this should work' - further updates could completely crash your maps where you spend tens of hours of building, setting up signs, mechanisms etc. So if your hosting didn't provide backup, or you just don't backup everything before changes, that's wrong plugin to use as well.

    I spend hours editing the map in game so that all work was lost for the love of art, you cannot use something so poorly designed, errors with portals, execution bugs, loading and reloading errors, a huge learning curve with little information in this regard. Excessively elaborate the organization of the configuration, basically it is not usable, this is my review of this plugin, if you want to be trolled, download it and use it, it is free.Now I do not recommend. Just the idea is good, Keep improving it.

      If you experience issues, please report them to my issue tracker. I was not aware of any of these bugs.

    Author! Several questions I have asked have not been fixed, which is very useful. The sign of monster death trigger can be counted. The copy entry time limit is also invalid! I hope the author can repair it quickly!

    Awesome plugin works very well. Easy to figure out how to work things through the wiki! Hope that with further development more features arrive! Thanks!

    [UPDATED] Plugin does what it is supposed to, basically to the T. There's a learning curve, but once you learn it, it's incredible. Personally had a few issues learning everything, but I got some help from the discord, and the dev is more than helpful. Would reccommend this plugin to anyone looking to make dungeons for friends, or for a public server. Virtually limitless.

    Thank you for the update! We all love your plugin. Keep up the amazing work, there is nothing like DXL out there. DXL is the most easy to configure and most versitile dungeons plugin on the market.

    excellent plugin. One last question: can the world generated by the plugin for the dungeons be totally empty?
    1. Sataniel
      Author's Response
      You can generate an empty world with another plugin and move the world to plugins/DungeonsXL/maps/. In the future, please use the issue tracker for questions.
