How to install Bluemap on Minecraft

In this article, you will get to know how to install and setup Bluemap on your Minecraft Java Edition server!

🤔 What is Bluemap?

BlueMap is a program that reads your Minecraft world files and generates both a map and 3D models of the entire surface. Using the web app, you can view the world in your browser as if you were in-game or get an overview from a distance. Want to checkout a demo of Bluemap? Click Here!

It's highly suggested to set up a World Border before creating BlueMap to control the server space used by BlueMap and your world because all BlueMap files are saved locally in the server files.

🗺️ Installing Bluemap Plugin

Before installing, ensure your server software supports plugins (e.g., Paper, Spigot, Purpur).
Download the Bluemap plugin here.
Stop your server from the control panel.
Open the "Plugins" folder by clicking on the "Files" section.
Upload the plugin using the panel's upload button.

Once the upload is completed, Start your server.

🔢 Create Allocation

We'll need an extra port for bluemap setup so please allocate an extra port for your server by following this steps:
Navigate to the "Network" section.

Click on Create Allocation button and you will have a new port assigned to your server along with the one (Primary) you were having before.

Copy the new port other than primary. For example, if we see the above image, we will copy the port 28957

⚙️ Bluemap Setup

After copying the extra port, follow this steps:
Open the "Plugins" folder and then the "BlueMap" folder.
Open core.conf and set accept-download: to true.

Save the file and go back.
Open webserver.conf and set the port to the copied port.
For this guide, we copied port "28957," so that's the port we will be using. Your port may be different.
Save the file and restart your server.

Once your server is running, check out your BlueMap at http://IP:PORT in your web browser. Just replace "IP" with your server's IP address and "PORT" with the specified port in the webserver.conf file.
