Is it possible to whitelist Multiverse worlds, so only certain players can, for example, go to a survival world?

Even if they try to /tp to a player in a world they're not allowed in, it won't allow them.

  • I assume that you want a mod recommendation? Those are off-topic here. Also, what is "Multiverse"? If you use anything non-standard, you should at least give a short explanation or a link. – Fabian Röling Jan 25 '20 at 22:29
  • @FabianRöling Are they, actually? I know it's asking for a software recommendation, but the answer this question on meta (which is old, but still seems relevant) seems to suggest otherwise. Especially since this question here only offers it is a possible solution to a problem that might be able to get solved differently. 'Multiverse' seems to be 'world management software' for servers, by the way. – Joachim Jan 25 '20 at 23:30

This is possible, it makes use of Permissions: for example PermissionsEx

If a player has multiverse.access.WORLDNAME, then they can enter that world.

NOTE: Ensure you have enforceaccess enabled in your Multiverse "config.yml". If enforceaccess is set to false anyone can go to any world and all world-access permissions are ignored.


For each world:

perm player setperm [player_name] multiverse.access.[world_name]

For all worlds:

perm player setperm [player_name] multiverse.access.*

Where [player_name] is the name of the player and [world_name] is the name of the world


For automation you have to edit the "permission.yml", for example:

            - multiverse.access.[overworld_name]
            - multiverse.access.*
        - default
        - admin

(Where [overworld_name] is the name of the overworld)

This automatically enables the overworld access for everyone, while admins have access to all the worlds. You should to get to know how "Permissions" works, before trying large scale permission edit, since this can break the game (unable to do certain actions)

Other commands / permissions

See Command reference for more permissions / commands.

  • Does it work with group manager – Kingbluesapphire Dec 29 '14 at 22:51
  • @kingbluesapphire as seeing from Group Manager, yes it does work with group manager as well. – Inferno IV Dec 29 '14 at 23:03
