A Google Maps-like map for your Minecraft server that can be viewed in a browser. Easy to set up when making use of Dynmap's integrated webserver which works out-of-the-box, while also available to be integrated into existing websites running on Apache and the like. Dynmap can render your worlds using different renderers, some suitable for performance, some for high detail.
Components allow you to add/remove functionality to make Dynmap suit your needs. Using the components Dynmap comes supplied with, there is support for chat balloons, web-to-game chat, and configurable markers, areas, and lines.
* Highly configurable maps per world
* Real-time updates: maps are kept in sync with your world in real-time, updates are shown while your leave your browser open
* Players with their faces are visible on the map
* Chat messages are visible (as balloons or in a chatbox) on the map.
* Map viewers can chat to players in-game.
* Current Minecraft time is visible on the map.
* Current Minecraft weather is visible on the map.
* WorldGuard, Residence, Towny and Factions regions that can be visible on the map (through corresponding Dynmap-* plugins)
* Overall highly configurable and customizable.
Copy dynmap-*.jar to plugins directory
First time use
When you start Spigot/CraftBukkit, you should be able to navigate to http://yourserverip:8123/ in your browser. In case you are running Spigot/CraftBukkit on the PC you are currently working on, you can navigate to http://localhost:8123/. You should be able to see the players who are in-game. Note that the map is not yet rendered, therefore the background will be black.
If you are planning on using the HD renderer, now would be a good time to do so. Enable 'deftemplatesuffix: hires' in the top of configuration.txt. More information about deftemplatesuffix is available at https://github.com/webbukkit/dynmap/wiki/Base-Plugin-Settings|Base plugin settings.
If you just want to see Dynmap work, use the following command in-game: /dynmap fullrender. The wiki contains more information about https://github.com/webbukkit/dynmap/wiki/Commands|commands and permissions. The map should reveal itself gradually in the browser, give it some time. Progress messages indicate that Dynmap is working and will show when the render is completed.

Both to demonstrate the API, and to help manage the growth of this already-huge plugin, we've started producing additional plugins for Dynmap.

Also, for the best response to questions and such, please post comments to our main forum thread - http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/1543523-dynmap-dynamic-web-based-maps-for-minecraft/. Once again, having more than one place just isn't helpful, and this is where the 'Dynmap Community' already operates.
This plugin utilizes Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to mcstats.org:
* A unique identifier
* The server's version of Java
* Whether the server is in offline or online mode
* The plugin's version
* The server's version
* The OS version/name and architecture
* The core count for the CPU
* The number of players online
* The Metrics version

Dynamic 'Google Maps' style web maps for your Spigot/Bukkit server
Love this! Honestly it's one of my greatest little aspects of my Raspberry Pi server...having an online map to see who is where and what is being built. When I run timings reports it is a bigger hog (even with slowing down how it updates and looks) but that's probably my fault...my server is a $35 computer after all hehe. GREAT MOD!!!
Works wonderfully, after rendering it provided a nice way to encourage player exploration without the use of random teleports, instead players know what they've explored and what they haven't
+ Texture pack support for the generated maps makes everything look really nice!
NEVER use this plugin when you have more then one world and when your world gets too big. It creates many files and Inodes. It even lets my server crash beacuse it has almost 5 bilion inodes and my VPS has a maximum of 5 bilion. After deleting every dynmap tile i've 4.5 bilion inodex free
IMHO Dynmap has always been one of the most amazing things that were done with Minecraft and it's running on our Server since Day 1 back in 2011.
Many thanks to MikePrimm who took this plugin over maybe 5 years ago and made it rock stable and always up2date since then. We owe you.
Very helpful map incase you got lost from your home for such world or whatever. I also like the fact it can be a website layout like google maps. Only thing I would like to see is a better way to disabe 3D and underground cave system since it can take up more space/resource.
