This article will teach you how to use NMS in Spigot. This article will teach you all about NMS. We'll answer your questions about the topic.

Spigot: How to Use NMS

You may need to take a course in NMS before we can get into the action.

What does NMS stand for?

NMS stands for “Net.Minecraft.Server”, a package containing the core Minecraft server code. It is the DNA of Spigot, CraftBukkit, and other Minecraft servers such as Bukkit and CraftBukkit. NMS is what allows the server to be created. Without it, there wouldn't have been any way to make beautiful structures or objects.

Why use NMS?

NMS is a powerful and highly optimized tool that runs much faster than Spigot or Bukkit. You can import NMS into these servers to do more. Your previous capabilities could be enhanced by the optimization.

NMS isn't easy to learn, and requires some knowledge in coding. However, there are many pages that provide useful information to assist you in changing your server. These pages will make it easier to get started with NMS.

NMS allows you to save your code directly from sources, without the need of schedulers.

NMS can be used for the following:

There are many more functions, but we won't get into them here.

How to Use NMS

You can create custom entity classes using NMS. This is one of the best ways to make use of NMS. You can create custom mobs. As long as you use correct code, these mobs don't need to be replaced by the default ones.

Modifying entities

You can create Villagers that are invulnerable to attack or move with the right code This is just one example of the possibilities that custom entities can offer. This works with many other mobs, provided you use the correct names and codes.

These mobs and NPCs, as well as other entities can be created with the aid of modified entities. For fun, you can place a static Zombie right in the middle your Village. Normal Zombies can still be spawned in the overworld if you don't change the code.


GameProfiles are a collection of values that determine players' UUIDs, skins and login dates. A player can also modify their GameProfile.

After retrieving a GameProfile, you can modify skins by entering a code. You won't have the code to modify it.

Modifying DataWatchers

Although the name may not be obvious, DataWatchers are the code which records the state of entities. Every state has its own unique value. Any entity's DataWatcher value can change if it is affected by a status effect. For example, if a Ghast is set on fire or hit with a potion, its DataWatcher value will change.

You can modify any entity's status with this knowledge and these tools. It is possible to combine this knowledge with the creation of custom entities and their states. You can fly Creepers or invisible Skeletons.

There are so many options out there that you can play with. Here is a page that contains all the stored values for each entity.

Are You Using NMS?

NMS is not recommended for use on your server. NMS is not cross-version compatible. This means that you will have to code again because your Minecraft version is older. Bukkit, Spigot, and CraftBukkit make it easier to manage your server.

There are ways to combat this problem. Reflection and NMS can be used on an interface. However, these methods are more complicated than the APIs of three servers.

NMS should be reserved only for people who are proficient in Spigot or Bukkit coding. You should use the easiest software available if you are a beginner.

NMS allows for greater speed and optimization, but also more freedom to experiment. Experts today still use NMS to manage their servers. Sometimes it is best to do everything manually.

Additional FAQs

Is using NMS dangerous?

If it is misused, it can prove dangerous. NMS is more powerful and can be used directly with the source code. An incorrect code could result in the loss of player data or your server. NMS can be used to customize your server.

It's not cross-version compatible so it's not worth it. You'll waste your time programming everything from scratch. There are ways around this, but they take longer than the other methods.

I made an immortal creeper for our server

NMS information is not easy to find so only professionals should use it. We recommend that you do more research before diving into the software. Anyone with some knowledge can make some interesting mobs on their Minecraft servers. It can open up new possibilities that other APIs don't offer.
