    AutoSave is now on Bukkit Dev! Plenty of information and it is overall much better documented there than it has been here. Wiki pages really help organize all the information that is needed.

    Discuss AutoSave on Bukkit Dev and get information, files, and more from there!

    AutoSave - Automatic World Saves:
    Version: 2.0.1

    AutoSave is meant to provide a simple method to automatically save your world at a defined interval! This plugin ONLY saves to the proper world directories within the Minecraft server. It is not a backup plugin, it is meant to increase persistence and reduce the affects of a server crash.

    • Performs a world saves (same as save-all on console)
    • Repeats the above at user defined interval!
    • Warning messages
    • Multi-World Support
    • Configurable messages
    • Option to disable broadcast message
    Download The Plugin
    Source Code

    Version 2.0.1
    • Small library changes
    Version 2.0.0
    • Color Messages support!
    • Support for Multiple Permissions Plugins (natively)
    • No more version nagging
    • ASync Tasks instead of Sync Tasks (possible performance increase)
    Version 1.3.0
    • Perform save after last player leaves (quits/kicked).
    Full Changelog

    Future Release To-do List:
    • Calculate and create variable for time elapsed during save
    • Make bacon
    • Get more feature suggestions

    You can configure the plugin via an XML file located at "plugins/AutoSave/".

    • message.broadcastprost: Message broadcast to all players after save completed
    • message.insufficentpermissions: Customizable generic insufficient permissions message
    • message.saveplayers: Customizable players save message
    • message.saveworlds: Customizable worlds save message
    • message.warning: Customizable warning message
    • Customizable value of "off"
    • value.on: Customizable value of "on"
    • var.broadcast: True or False value specifying if broadcasts should be used
    • var.debug: True or False value specifying for additional console output
    • var.interval: Number of seconds between saves
    • var.permissions: Bypass permissions entirely
    • Toggles reporting thread
    • var.uuid: Anonymous identification
    • var.warntime: n time before the save happens when a warning is broadcast to players, multiple values can be passed by separating by commas
    • var.worlds: Comma seperated list of loaded worlds to be saved. * indicates ALL worlds will be saved.
    If you want to user colors, its simple. Just use one of the following in the appropriate location (config file):
    • Aqua: %AQUA%
    • Black: %BLACK%
    • Dark Aqua: %DARK_AQUA%
    • Dark Blue: %DARK_BLUE%

    Note: ALL of the below commands can start with autosave instead of save if another plugin is using the save command such as WorldEdit. This will always allow access to the in game configuration of the plugin.

    Saves the world outside of the interval.​
    Requires Permission:​
    /save help
    Displays help dialogue​
    /save toggle
    Toggles the automatic saves (turns off or on depending on current setting)​
    Requires Permission: autosave.toggle​
    /save status
    Prints status message about the current state of automatic saves​
    Requires Permission: autosave.status​
    /save interval {seconds}
    Sets or gets the interval setting in seconds​
    Requires Permission: autosave.interval​
    /save addworld [value]
    Adds world to the World Save List​
    Requires Permission:​
    /save remworld [value]

    Requires Permission: autosave.version​


    AutoSave reports minimal anonymous data to provide general usage tracking. No personal or server information is ever transmitted. The following data is provided:
    • Plugin Name (this will always be AutoSave)
    • Plugin Version
    • Bukkit Version (the full Bukkit version string)
    • Operating System
      • Name
      • Version
      • Architecture
    • Java Version
    This data helps me understand the environments in which AutoSave is used within, however you are more than welcome to disable it, either via "" in the configuration file, or "save report [off|on]" from console.

    Known Issues:
    • During upgrade messages no longer are colored
      • Solution: Delete config file or add colors manually

    Permissions can be disabled by manually editing the config file and setting "permissions" to false. That will completely disable Permissions. Running AutoSave without Permissions with the value to true (default) will cause the plugin to unload itself.

    Here are the permission settings, either do 'autosave.*' or use the granular permissions below: Allows the ability to save at any time​
    autosave.toggle: Allows the ability to stop and start AutoSave​
    autosave.status: Allows the ability to see status of AutoSave​
    autosave.interval: Allows the ability to see and change interval setting​
    autosave.broadcast: Allows the ability to see and change broadcast setting​
    autosave.version: Allows the ability to see the version of AutoSave​
    autosave.debug: Allows the ability to change the debug setting​
    autosave.warn: Allows the ability to see and change the warning time setting​ Allows the ability to view the world save list​ Allows the ability to add to the world save list​ Allows the ability to remove from the world save list​

    Looks good. I have a small suggestion.

    Make a message appear before saving letting the players know the world is being saved and make that message configurable.

    Currently there is a message broadcasted, and I love the idea of making it customizable so that's on the todo list!

    First bug fix...apparently I didn't notice my default was actually originally 60 seconds, now its been fixed and its set appropriately to 300 seconds (or 5 minutes).

    I guess there is no way to create a more advanced saving system. From what I thought and could be wrong you can get a list of active chunks now. Would it be possible to just go through them all and save them 1 by 1 rather then all say 5000 chunks loaded?

    Not sure if this would have other bad side effects though.

    Just trying saving a world with 50+ online it's pretty bad hehe.

    No matter what I will use this for sure but do it once every 2 hours or something for now.

    I'll explore possibilities of saving per chunk which is originally what I had hoped to be able to do, but I can't be certain when or if that can happen.

    Is it at all possible to only save player inventories? That's what I'm really using this for.

    About time there is a save-all plugin.
    thank you so much!

    A great feature to see would be an announcement text to everyone to warn of lag.

    Hello i just installed your plugin (love it) but for some reason it will create the auto-save folder but not the file.
    oh and i am running bukkit 326

    The current version writes the config file on a graceful shutdown only (try typing stop on the console). I'll add to the to-do list to create it on load if it doesn't exist!

    So is this possible to set up an interval 30 secs BEFORE a save announce "The World will be saved in X seconds" ?
  23. Offline


    Definitely possible, I assume it would be helpful especially on large servers. I'll consider it for the next release.
  24. Offline


    So the properties should look like i posted above? :p
  25. Offline


    Yes, that is the current default properties/config (or at least it appeared to be).
  26. Is it possible for the properties file to be set up different in the future? More user friendly? As at the moment I have no idea how to edit it correctly and don't want to try messing with it.

    Could it not be like:

    broadcast.message =
    broadcast.enable =
    command.broadcastchangesuccess =
    command.broadcastlookup =
    command.broadcastnotvalid =
    command.intervalchangesuccess =
    command.intervallookup = =
    command.on = =
    command.starting =
    command.statusfail =
    command.statusoff =
    command.statussuccess =
    command.stopping =
    command.insufficentpermissions =
    command.intervalnotanumber =
    command.version =
    interval =
    permissions =

    Well, I would rather avoid using different types of config files as its a nightmare to manage for future releases. However say we wanted to change the message sent on save we would locate the entry "broadcast.message" and alter its contents.

    The original line from the configuration file:
    <entry key="broadcast.message">World Auto-Saving</entry>
    An altered more amusing line to replace it:
    <entry key="broadcast.message">I'm saving the world!</entry>
    Does that help explain what you can do to edit the file?

    This is awesome. Truly plug-and-play. Worked fine, usefulness is great. THANK YOU.
