When playing vanilla Minecraft, spending plenty of time within your world is a crucial part of the gameplay experience. After playing through your world for a prolonged amount of time, you may wish to expand your efforts without directly giving up or modifying your existing world. Introducing Multiverse-Core, a plugin that directly aims to fix this problem by allowing multiple worlds to be created and accessed on a single server. Whether you have creative and survival worlds, minigames, or more, Multiverse can provide it all. Installing and starting with Multiverse-Core can be confusing for unfamiliar players, so we have created this Apex Hosting guide to ease you into the setup process.


Multiverse-Core is a massively popular plugin with over 5.4 million downloads on the Bukkit plugin page. Originally created around 2011, the plugin spans from earlier than 1.8 up to the current modern versions. Multiverse-Core allows you to have multiple worlds accessible on one server, allowing for different experiences across each of them in minigames or gamemodes.

How to Get Started


Generating a New World

With Multiverse-Core, generating an extra Minecraft world is as easy as entering a command into the console.

Multiverse Command

These commands use the /mv create [WorldName] [Type] format. Examples include:

  • /mv create WorldName normal – Generate a random overworld.
  • /mv create WorldName normal -t FLAT – Generate a superflat overworld.
  • /mv create WorldName nether – Generate a Nether world.
  • /mv create WorldName end – Generate an End world


Importing an Existing World

Alternatively, an existing world can be uploaded and used as well. This can be beneficial for uploading your favorite worlds or including possible minigames.

Loading the World

For detailed instructions on how to upload a world, visit our guide here.

  1. Using a program such as 7-ZIP, zip the world you wish to use.

  2. Use FTP to upload your world to the panel.
  3. Once uploaded, navigate to the FTP File Access to unzip your world.
    Multiverse Unzip
  4. In-game, use the following command:

/mv import [YourWorldName] [Type]

Both the name and world type will need to match the one that is being uploaded. Examples may include:

  • /mv import SurvivalWorld normal
  • /mv import MyNether nether
  • /mv import world_the_end end


Notable Commands

/mv create [WorldName] [Type] – Create a specific world type on the server.
/mv import [WorldName] [Type] – Import an existing world for use.
/mv set spawn – Set the respawn point for a world.
/mv tp [Player] [World] – Teleport a player into a different world.
/mv unload [World] – Unloads a world from the server.
/mv load [World] – Enables an unloaded world.
/mv gamerule [Rule] [Value] [WorldName] – Sets a gamerule for a specific world.
Consider visiting the Multiverse-Core Command page for more information on commands and their usage.


With that, you should now know how to install and operate the basics of the Multiverse-Core plugin. With the ability to add and customize each world directly, there is no limit to what can be achieved. Whether you add a spawn hub world, have a creative world, minigames, and more, Multiverse-Core is a must-have for server hosts and players alike. Gather your worlds and prepare to embark across a multi-world journey.

Common Issues

Multiverse commands are not working:
Oftentimes, this occurs because the plugin did not load up properly. First, visit the main panel page and ensure your server is running a version like Paper or Spigot. Afterwards, visit the FTP File Access and make sure the file was uploaded directly into the plugins folder. Once this has been confirmed, restart the server once again.

I don’t have permission to use commands:
When this occurs, it often means that your character has not been opped through the server console. To fix this, visit the console tab on your server, then enter op YourUsername to give your player command access. If you have a permissions plugin such as Luckperms, you may need to configure it manually.
