    This plugin is intended to efficiently provide a border for each of your worlds, which only people granted special bypass access are allowed beyond. These borders can be round/elliptic or square/rectangular. As the plugin has been written with performance as the most important goal, it should have no performance impact on your server. Additional world trimming and filling commands are available as well.
    Older plugins which originally inspired the creation of this one: rBorder and BorderGuard.

    • You can set up a separate border for each world, but only one border per world.
    • You can have either round/elliptic or square/rectangular borders. Square/rectangular borders are slightly higher performance, round/elliptic borders make for nicer display maps. Different worlds can have different border shapes if you so choose.
    • Configuration and border setup is done completely using commands in-game or through the server console. No need to ever edit the config file directly.
    • Support for all permission plugins which interface with Bukkit's built-in "superperms" permission system.
    • You can fully generate (fill) your world all the way to the border, filling in any missing chunks, including a configurable buffer zone just outside your border.
    • You can trim off any world chunks beyond the border, getting rid of extraneous parts, with a configurable buffer zone left just outside your border.
    • You can use a bypass command to allow specific players to go beyond all borders.
    • Borders can be automatically displayed in DynMap if you use that plugin.
    • All plugin data is automatically saved whenever any borders or settings are changed.
    • If a player crosses a border while in a vehicle, the momentum of the vehicle is stopped and it is moved back inside the border with the player.
    • When a player is moved back inside a border, they will be moved to a safe vertical location if needed.
    • Borders for specific worlds can be set to wrap around instead of just knocking back players who cross the border, instead sending them to the opposite edge of the border.

    Of special interest are the Fill command and the Trim command features:

    Borders are also displayed automatically by default in DynMap if you have it:

    Excellent, it would be a good option to start killing, instead of going back (hunger games style)

    Very good plugin. Does the author plan to update to version 1.16? If so, it would be great. Thank you!

    The report progress is wrong for rectangles, but works fine for squares. I would recommend Chunky instead because this plugin is abandoned. There are also forks that continue this plugin.

    This works great on 1.15.2, but there is one critical flaw. I started with a 5000 block limit and generated all of the chunks. Upon each incremental expansion, it detected that over 30000 chunks were generated and would not generate them. You MUST force generate true and wait the extra time if you don't want unloaded holes. Otherwise, it works flawlessly still. Running on PaperMC.

    Still works in 1.15 and is one the plugins i never want to miss. Its pretty easy to configure and essential to fight worldgen laggs.

    Thanks for the good work all over the years and keep going!
