The Bukkit, Spigot, and PaperSpigot use a different way to store the Nether and The End dimension into your server files, and if you change your server from Vanilla to one of the three or the other way around.


🔌 Changing from Vanilla to Bukkit/ Spigot/ Paper 🔌

To switch your world from Vanilla to Bukkit/ Spigot/ PaperSpigot you need to start by downloading your world using Filezilla. For doing so we please you to see our guide for downloading your world here.

After doing so, you will notice that your world folder has inside it two other folders called DIM1 and DIM-1.

DIM-1 is the Nether dimension
DIM1 is The End dimension




To convert your Nether and End dimensions for them to be properly read by Bukkit/ Spigot/ PaperSpigot you need to do the following:

Create two other folders called world_nether and world_the_end.



⚠ NOTE ⚠: If your world folder is named different than world then you need to name the two folders as worldname_nether and worldname_the_end.


Move the DIM-1 to the one called world_nether and the DIM1 to the one called world_the_end.


Delete your old world, then upload the world folder, and the two other folders you just created ( world_nether and world_the_end ) to the root directory of your Bukkit/ Spigot/ Paper server using Filezilla, and restart your server.

⚠ NOTE ⚠: Here is our guide for using Filezilla.


Now you just converted the two extra dimensions so the Bukkit/ Spigot/ PaperSpigot server will be able to read them properly.


🔩 Changing from Bukkit/ Spigot/ Paper to Vanilla 🔩

To switch your world from Bukkit/ SPigot/ PaperSpigot to Vanilla you need to start by downloading your world using Filezilla. For doing so we please you to see our guide for downloading your world here.

You will notice that your world has 3 folders on a Bukkit/ Spigot/ PaperSpigot server:

world which is the overworld, the main world folder
world_nether which is the Nether Dimension.
world_the_end which is The End Dimension.



You need to download all three folders to your PC.


To convert your Nether and End dimensions for them to be properly read by Vanilla you need to do the following:

Go inside the world_nether folder, copy the DIM-1 folder and paste it into your main world directory (the overworld directory).



⚠ NOTE ⚠: If your world folder is named different than world then the folder will also be named worldname_nether and worldname_the_end.


Go inside the world_the_end folder, copy the DIM1 folder and paste it into your main world directory (the overworld directory).




Delete the old world folder, upload the new main world directory back to your server (the overworld directory) using Filezilla and restart your server.

⚠ NOTE ⚠: Here is our guide for using Filezilla.


Now you just converted the two extra dimensions so the Vanilla server will be able to read them properly.
