    Tested Minecraft Versions:
    • 1.8
    • 1.9
    • 1.10
    • 1.11
    • 1.12
    • 1.13
    • 1.14
    • 1.15
    • 1.16
    Source Code:
    If you are still using CraftBukkit or Spigot 1.8.8-1.11 use Version 1.4.1.
    If you are using CraftBukkit or Spigot 1.12 or later, use the current version.

    TallNether is fairly straightforward in function: instead of the 128 block high dimension normally used it generates the full 256 block height Minecraft can allow. It achieves this by modifying parts of the vanilla generator to increase the generation height.

    Exploring the taller nether is an interesting experience. It feels the same at first until you realize how long you've been working your way up...then look down into an abyss where lava falls disappear into the haze and the bottom can't be seen.

    A quick practical warning: Generating a 256 height nether is similar in resource usage to the Amplified world type; altering some of the custom settings may increase this even further. Once a chunk has finished generating, performance should be little different from that of the normal nether.

    Installation and Configuration
    1. Download TallNether.zip and extract the files to the plugins directory.
    2. You should have a TallNether.jar and a directory named TallNether.
    3. Inside the TallNether directory edit the config.yml file to set up your configuration.
    4. Start up the server and when an enabled world with the nether environment is created or loaded TallNether should substitute itself for that world's nether generator.
    If you are using this on a new map, the configuration file must be set up before starting the server/creating the world. Otherwise some vanilla chunks may get generated.

    You can use this on an existing nether world as well but there will obviously be a significant mismatch with the existing chunks. Be sure to make a back up before trying TallNether!

    Known Bugs and Issues:
    - When creating a new world on 1.15 and 1.16 the chunks near spawn may generate incorrectly. See this page for a workaround: https://github.com/OtakuMegane/TallNether/wiki/Premature-Chunk-Generation-Bug

    Because the plugin is still the vanilla generator and how Minecraft renders the fog and draw distance in the nether it's a bit hard to really show the difference in screenshots but here's a couple anyway:

    No bedrock yet, only starting the journey.

    What's down there? Who knows. Feather Falling ain't gonna save you though.

    This is a shot using OptiFine to get rid of the nether fog. This was taken from y = 100. It's a long way up.

    Issues and bugs
    If you happen to encounter new bugs, please file a ticket: https://github.com/OtakuMegane/TallNether/issues

    TallNether is considered finalized with all intended features present. Unless a worthwhile idea comes to mind, the only expected updates will be compatibility for future versions of Minecraft or fixes in case a bug is discovered.

    Nice going. Thank you for this gem.

    The "premature chunk generation bug" was no match for WorldEdit's //regen command.

    Love this plugin. You did a fantastic job on it and it shows. I run this on a 1.15.1 paper server with no issues at all. I am excited to see this resource updated as well.

    I would also recommend to anyone using this to also pre-generate their chunks with WorldBorder or something similar. :D

    Thank you!

    Works as Intended. Simple and usefull plugin. Works with DangerousNether. I'm waiting now for 1.15 support :P

    Just stopping by to say that this plugin works in 2019.

    This plugin actually improves the look of the nether so much. Pretty much almost every chunk is screenshot-worthy (in my eyes).

    It is a simple concept, but this plugin makes the previously bland nether appear a lot more interesting than ever before.
