    I highly appreciate any kind of feedback and I'm willing to offer support. This is not the place to ask for support, though! Please do not contact me by using my profile page and do not misuse the review function for support requests. I usually ignore these posts. I'll do my very best to help if you open an issue on GitHub and follow the template. Avoid to use the discussion thread, too, please, unless you don't have a GitHub account.

    Reply times to comprehension questions are usually less than a day. Bug reports or questions that require testing may take much longer.

    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
    This outline may help you to understand the concept of DungeonsXL:


    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 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 and 1.16.x features are present in the latest 0.18 snapshot builds. See their changelogs for an overview over the caveats.

    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!

    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.

    There is no way to set how many MOBS to kill. The current version can only kill MOBS without setting the number

    There are way better resources out there with more features and the same features provided .
    Also other plugins dont have as many bugs as this one here.
    The one time i requested support, nobody wouldve helped me.
    I dont recommend it.

      Haven't heard from this user in the last three months. As far as I can tell, he never made a post in the resource thread or opened an issue. (If you did the latter under a different alias, I can assure you I have not forgotten your problem and, as the new update from yesterday proves, am working actively on the project and will work on your issue as soon as the to do list shrinks a bit.) He only ever used the Discord channel which, as the resource thread has always explained, is not a support channel but a platform to chat with other users.

      Anyway, I replied myself in his case and adressed his problems. He confirmed that his problems were resolved, then came back next day with a stacktrace and a rage quit message without giving anyone a chance to reply to it (or at least he ignored my replies). I didn't consider that error a high priority because it did not cause any different behavior and fixing it would have meant to duct tape the old custom item system that I was just about to replace with an entirely new one. This has been finished in the last days, so the error this review refers to isn't there anymore in the build it was written for.

      Have a nice day.

    A very awesome plugin for building your own dungeons that players can repeat as much as they like without problems with other groups. Took a little bit to get used to but it is totally worth it. Thanks for the plugin!

    One of the best plugins I ever used, truly awesome and useful! I wanted to make a PVE Arena and this was a perfect plugin for it!

    Am I going insane, or does this guy know how to really create a clear and understandable concept while programming it perfectly???

    This is the best solution out there for instance dungeons. Amazing features, and if you read the wiki before getting started it is fairly easy to use and understand. No idea why why this is still free. 11/10 would recommend getting this over some of the other options available.
