My friends and I want to create an adventure map, so I want to have a empty Minecraft Craftbukkit server map to start with, so there will be nothing other than the things I want to put into the map. How can I achieve this?
With bukkit there are plugins that change the world generation to make the world flat, for example:
You can also search http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/?category=world-generators for different types of world generators.
Note: I have not tried either of them.
What do you mean empty? They're all empty. If you mean flat or featureless, all you can do, in the unlikely event of finding a seed that would create a world like that, is create one as normal, play it, fly around for a good while in all directions to get chunks generated, then use MCEdit to flatten it. But new chunks will always be generated as normal.
You know, I was wondering the exact same thing. I figured out if you make superflat just one layer of tnt then ignite it, it will blow up everything. BUT be sure you put a piece of bedrock down first. Also the server may crash or get really laggy. But you can also use World Edit to clear out the world.
gamemode=1 in the
server.properties. Note this would will have no blocks at all. As you are in creative mode fly to y: 0 (press F3 to see coords). Note: You will start dropping quickly so be ready. Install the WorldEdit plugin from bukkit plugins and type
//pos1 then move a little and type
//set stone or whatever block you want.
In later versions, you could use
/setblock ~ ~ ~ minecraft:stone and not have to install WorldEdit.
Judging from the DemonicMushy's comment on his question, I think he means a map with no blocks at all. Try looking for maps such as this one and importing them into multiplayer. 3000x3000 blocks of void. Of course, if you meant a map that isn't void, use the superflat world option when creating a singleplayer world and import it to multiplayer to build together.
