    Source Code:
    ImageMaps is a plugin for Bukkit Minecraft servers that enables you to place custom images in your world by rendering them onto maps and placing them in item frames.

    This can be used to create info graphics, custom paintings and even the appearance of custom textures.


    You will need a Server that implements Bukkit 1.13 or newer. Some features are only available in newer releases. Make sure to use the latest release of your server software before reporting issues.

    Put the plugin into your servers plugins folder and start it up. A folder for the plugin will be created automatically. You can place your images in the images folder inside it.

    Upgrading from versions < 1.0.0
    The plugin should convert your maps.yml automatically. It will attempt to create a backup before doing so, but it is recommended to do one manually as well.

    In order for you use place images they must be present in the images folder. You can either put them there via FTP or just copying it, or by using the plugin's download command, allowing you to access images from the Internet.

    To place images just run the /imagemap place command and right click the block that should be the upper left corner of the image (based on your perspective).

    Images will by default split into 128x128 pixel sub-images to fit on a map. The image may be scaled via command parameters, however it is recommended to prepare correctly scaled images.

    The color palette of Minecraft maps is very limited, requiring the plugin/Bukkit to convert the input image. This will result in your images looking different ingame than the source. The available color table can be found here:

    The invisible and fixed item frame properties are only available in 1.16+. You can modify them for any item frame by using a configurable (default a wooden hoe) items. Right click to toggle visibility and Shift+Right click to toggle the fixed state.

      • frameInvisible and frameFixed are only available on 1.16+

    Easy to use, great plugin, with a lot of uses!
    Images can be uploaded and placed with a few commands, no need to move images on the server or anything like that.

    Working good, splitting colors good, 1.17 Support which is new and plenty of options on the way too. But I still think
    ImageOnMaps is more comfy, It has a short command, a map etc. This plugin on the other hands is placing the frames automatically which is a big pro.

    This is a perfect plugin, I have been using this on my server for a year now without any problems.

    Plugin works but I can't change the size of the map. The map art ends up placing as a huge image.

      Please read the documentation. The plugin will automatically split the image in 128x128 maps, based on the resolution of the image. You can change that either by resizing the image using tools like GIMP or by using the size parameter in the /imagemap place command.
