Nukkit Introduction

❓ What is Nukkit ❓

Nukkit is a server type executing a .jar file to generate all necessary data to start a Bedrock server.

Coming a few years after PocketMine-Mp, NukkitX (or commonly called Nukkit), provides much more constant updates compared to PocketMine-MP, and of course, gigantic plugins variety (also with constant updates).

All of these features make this innovative software much heavier than other competitors like PocketMine-MP but's always a good alternative.

Also, there's no way to use command blocks.

If you're looking to create a public server, with many professional plugins, setup, and configurations, NukkitX is a good option.

🧵 Possible Connections:

Minecraft Pocket Edition - MCPE - (Android and IOS)
Minecraft Windows 10 Edition - Win10 - (From Microsoft Store)

📀 How Do I Get Admin Privileges on My Server 📀

To get admin privileges on your server and be able to use all commands you need to:

Log into your Multicraft Control Panel here.

Make sure you’re on your server's page. On the left-hand side of your Control Panel click ‘Console’.


In the text box above the console, type op <username>, then either click on Send or press the Enter key.

⚠ NOTE ⚠: You need to replace <username> with your actual username.


op ggservers


Should you make changes to who has OP permissions on your server, please use the /deop <username> command. This command can be executed by any OP player in-game and it can also be executed via the console to remove the OP privileges from a player.

✔️ Setting Up a Whitelist ✔️

The whitelist is as its name suggests a list of players that are allowed to join. Any other player that tries to join and is not on the list will be disconnected.

⚠ NOTE ⚠: The actual whitelist is saved in your server files inside the white-list.txt file, but we do not recommend editing that file manually but using the following commands. Modifying that file can make the server crash at the first start!

To manage your whitelist on your Nukkit server you will use the following commands:

/whitelist <on - off>

Enable or disable the whitelist.


/whitelist off

Disable the whitelist.

/whitelist <add - remove> <playername>

Add or remove a specific player from the whitelist.


/whitelist add player1

/whitelist list

It will show all players from your whitelist.

/white-list reload

Will reload your whitelist according to your white-list.txt file.

🔌 How to Install Plugins 🔌

First, please note that NukkitX does not work with Bukkit/Spigot plugins, it specifically needs NukkitX plugins.

After downloading the plugins you want, just use Filezilla to upload them to your plugins folder of the server and restart it.

Upload Plugins

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

We please you to also take a look here at our guide for recommended plugins for PocketMine. You will find there recommended plugins for anything from essentials commands to anti-cheat and minigames plugins.

👹 How to Get Mobs on Your Server 👹

To get mobs working on Nukkit, you'll need to set up the MobPlugin plugin which can be found here.


Just download it and drop it into your server plugins folder using Filezilla, then restart the server.


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

🔒 Setting Up Permissions 🔒

For managing permissions better on the Nukkit server we suggest you use a permission plugin, like LuckPerms, the Nukkit version. Here you can find it.

Here is our guide for setting up and configuring LuckPerms, please take a look.

🗺️ Setting Up Your Custom World 🗺️

Please note that Nukkit has a unique world type. If you want to upload a world, you can only use a world that was previously generated with Nukkit.

⚠ NOTE ⚠: You cannot upload your single-player world to your Nukkit because it was not generated with Nukkit but with the Vanilla version of the Bedrock game. Also, you cannot upload a world generated previously with the Bedrock Dedicated server type to a Nukkit server.

So if you have a world that was generated previously via Nukkit you can upload it to your server files as our guide explains here.

If you find any issues setting up and using Nukkit please feel free to contact us on live chat or via the ticket system here.
