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?

    Every block has to be placed against another block, so you can't do anything at all with a completely empty world. You need to define empty. Oct 12 '11 at 8:25

    Okay. At least one block on the map? Oct 12 '11 at 8:55

    Simple then: Mine every block but one.

With bukkit there are plugins that change the world generation to make the world flat, for example:

http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/wgen-hugetractsofland-0-1-generate-a-flat-world-using-any-block-1060.28662/

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.

I would have to say that you just go into the server.properties file and edit it to be super-flat instead of default. The drawback to that is that you will not be able to go underground since it is only 3 blocks away from the 1 layer of bedrock.

  • Only "level-type=flat" works. There is not "super-flat" according to minecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Server.properties#Java_Edition_3 . "flat" allows you to generate four layers (so not empty/one-block-only world). I have one answer (use SinglePlayer game, generate world named "world" and copy that world directory to the server folder) but need 10 reputation points to be able to add it :-).

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 can use MCEdit to create a world and create chunks in it that are empty except for a layer of bedrock.

  • Wow 9 hours to mention this. But yea, You can make a flat empty map in MCEdit very easily. Oct 12 '11 at 17:22
  • Because the OP is in a different time zone I would imagine.

Make a superflat world out of air blocks. Make sure you have villages on, and you have an (almost) emtpy world.

    Seems to be the best way to do this in vanilla. You could probably also make an entirely empty world and use mods/MCEdit/hex editors/whatever to create a single block from nothing.

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.

  • wool would make more sense, but that's an awesome idea if you don't have world edit.

make a superflat world with only one layer of sand. The moment you put a block down, the sand will fall into the void leaving just the block you placed.

    Intriguing answer. I wonder how bad it would lag from all the sand falling. Would be fun to watch.

Set generator-settings=1;0;1 and level-type=FLAT and 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 //pos2 and //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.

Download the map "SKY BLOCK" and clear it all out. There's only 30 blocks or so and then the map is completely empty.

  • Not completely empty. There's normal terrain generated if you go far (not very far) enough. Oct 7 '13 at 16:19
