This plugin tackles limitations and common problems of vanilla survival multiplayer, by adding various tweaks and configuration options. SMPtweaks is fully modular, largely async and built in a lightweight way with high player counts in mind.
All features can be enabled individually and put zero load on your server when not used.
Fine-tune what happens when a player dies: Options to reduce item durability, keep equipment, drop only a portion of XP or items carried, drop chance per inventory slot, respawn health and hunger points etc.
Modify day/night cycle Increase or decrease duration of day or night, disable sleeping, reduce bad weather etc.
Change mob spawning behaviour Configure how frequently a certain type of mob spawns, disable some spawns completely (for example phantoms) and allow naturally spawning shulkers.
Easy way to add custom crafting recipes
Recipes can be easily added via the config file so you won't need another plugin or heavyweight datapacks for that.
- Restart the server
Please note that this plugin requires at least Java 16 and Minecraft version 1.17 or higher.
Below is the default config file with all features disabled. Please refer to the documentation if anything is unclear.
