How to create a Void World in Minecraft

Creating a void world is perfect for minigames as you do not need the whole map and also it saves on RAM!. This article will show you how to create a void world in Minecraft: Java Edition!

Creating a void world (Method 1)

In single-player, go ahead and start by creating a new world. Then, click on the "World" tab.

Note: This may look different as these screenshots were taken in the latest version of Minecraft (1.19.4) as of when this article was published.

Set the "Generate Structures" option to "OFF".

Set the "World Type" to "Superflat".

Click on the "Customize" button next to the world type button.

Click the "Presets" button at the bottom of the screen

Type the following into the input box at the top: minecraft:air;minecraft:air

Click "Use Preset"

Now create the world. Once completed, you are able to use SFTP to upload this world to your Minecraft: Java server. If you do not know how to use SFTP, we have a article explaining it here.

Creating a void world (Method 2)

Note: This method will require you to be using the spigot server software (Or any forked based on spigot)

Head over to the VoidGen plugin page and click on the blue, download now button.

Upload the plugin to your plugins folder.

If you are using VoidGen for your default world and are not using any world management plugins like Mutliverse, you are done here. Reload your server and the plugin should function as intended.

In case you are running a world management plugin like Multiverse this is important for you. If you are not using Multiverse use the corresponding commands from your plugin of choice.

You will need multiverse to continue. If you do not know how to install multiverse, we have a article available here.

To create a new void world, please do the following command: /mv create <worldname> <env> -g VoidGen:<parameters> -t FLAT

There are some option you may want to edit in the command:
<worldname> - This is the name of the world you want the plugin to work in.
<env> - represents the environment of the world, use /mv env to see a list of all possible environments. Most common ones are NORMAL and NETHER

And that's it! You can now teleport to the newly created void world!

If you require any further assistance, please create a ticket here.
