I Found The Next Level In Plugin Making...

Dear Friend!

If you’ve ever been to big networks or any really customized server you liked, you’ve probably noticed this one thing:

All successful servers offer features beyond what the “average plugin” can offer.

Everything is built from the ground up to their custom, unique needs.

And even if you already coded Minecraft plugins before, you know that these things are unavailable through standard APIs and methods.

These servers use plugins which hook into the “secret” level of Minecraft, so called NMS…

What Even The Authors Of Paper Can't Fully Understand

There’s an invisible wall between people who understand this, and the rest.

And if you’ve seen servers with custom entities with AI, pathfinders and goals, custom blocks such as furnaces and chests, custom animations, holograms and menus, you know you found them.

Unfortunately for most, this remains just a dream. Even the authors of Spigot and Paper can’t fully wrap their head around it.

The NMS stands for an internal part of the Minecraft server, which is for the most part inaccessible through the standard ways of making plugins.

The work and the time you have to put into it is frustrating. The lack of efficiency and good training materials makes things easy to dream about, but hard to achieve. And every new Minecraft version breaks everything again.

So, most people, if they happen to learn Minecraft plugins, resign to a beginner-level code that’s limited, suboptimal and they still haven’t achieved what they were looking for… 

It's Time To Go Deeper

And Finally Turn All Your Ideas Into Reality

If you ever tried to code advanced Minecraft plugins, you’ve probably noticed that:


Free tutorials are outdated, chaotic and lacking


Once you get stuck it’s hard to get help & keep going


Updates break things & you waste time chasing bugs

The ONLY way to get to the next level is to bypass Bukkit, Spigot and Paper and use everything the game has to offer!

And the BEST way to go to the next level is using the 4-layer formula we’ve designed:

1 — The “enhanced plugin system” used in plugins with over 700,000+ downloads since 2013
2 — Rapid prototyping & testing so you turn ideas into reality in HOURS instead of days
3 — Professional training materials to make PROVEN high quality plugins
4 — A winning community to get help, meet new friends and thrive

But more on this later…

Quality, Trust, Results

We’ve been teaching coding and publishing our own software since 2013. We’re an industry-leading educational platform, and our students speak for themselves.

Here's What You'll Get

Inside The World's Most Advanced Minecraft Plugin Development Training
Week 1

NMS, Animations & Menu Systems

How you think controls your results more than how you work. 

In week 1 we’ll rebuild you to think like a person who already has what you want by giving you CONCRETE examples and projects like:

  • Accessing NMS — Two bullet-proof ways to dig deeper
  • Hacking server menu list info — Fake the amount of online players on your server!
  • Action bar, boss bar, title and scoreboard animations — HEX color support included.
  • Advanced custom enchants — Create working enchantments with special effects!
  • Custom particles and animations — How to send beautiful advanced particles with ZERO math skills and again making it work on ALL Minecraft versions without the headache.
  • Custom items, skulls and player heads — Get 29,000+ textures to pick from (or make your own)!
  • Advanced menu systems — Creating menus with pagination, item split, quantities and click events.

Advanced GUI systems

Design your plugin to use in-game menus with animated titles and infinite pagination

Create custom items and settings options without repetitive or spaghetti code.

You can now make a complete minigame plugin using GUIs where players put and store items, custom containers, backpacks, or anything your imagination desires! 

Decompilation & Reverse Engineering

You’ll learn how to extract useful information from any jars even if these are obfuscated.

That way, you can read and understand ANY plugin that’s been ever written, even if you don’t have access to its source code.

Week 2

Entity Pathfinders & AI

  • Pathfinders and AI — Create your own entities with custom sounds, particles and effects, turn chickens into aggressive predators!
  • Navigation and pets — Creating pathfinder goals from scratch to make a custom pets plugin. I’ll  also show you “scalable” NMS you easily update to new MC versions and use over a dozen of MC versions without worrying about obfuscation breaking your stuff.
  • NPCs with AI — Creating NPCs of any name, hidden/visible on tab-list, with custom behavior or only displayed to certain players. Saving and reading the NPC to your disk or database.
  • Custom NPCs skins — How to set custom skins for NPCs, independently of their name, for both online and offline servers. Using an endpoint to fetch skin data bypassing Mojang’s API restrictions.
  • WASD entity riding — Easily ride ANY mobs using your keyboard. Adding WASD controller to entities.
  • Citizens — Make NPCs walk to a path, follow or player or make animals aggressive. NPC events and interacting with NPCs.
  • Quests and rewards — Ądding Traits to customize NPC behavior. Chat bubbles to make your NPCs chat with nearby players. Creating a quest where the NPC rewards the player for killing a boss and bringing a Boss drop back to  the NPC.
Week 3

Multi-Version NMS Without It Breaking On Every Update

Regardless if you code for 1.8.8 or 1.21 or newer you will create high-performance multi-MC version plugins in hours instead of days with our system.  

I’ll even show you on the screen how to update from one Minecraft version to another. I’ll show you how to use Mojang’s or Spigot’s deobfuscation mappings.

You’ll see how to make your plugin work on any Minecraft version without having to dig in outdated SpigotMC forum posts anymore.

Week 4

Offline Data Manipulation & Chunk Editing

Use NBT tags, which are invisible tags stored for entities (including you as the player), tile entities (like chests or furnaces) item stacks, blocks and chunks.

  • Offline inventory editing including ender chest content and armor for offline players!
  • Offline chunks editing so you can scan and edit EVERY block on your world on the disk, such as to recover broken chunks, cover worlds with snow or scan for custom items.
  • Rapid blocks editing to create a 3D region using a tool that visualizes it right in front of your eyes and then editing it with virtually zero lag!
  • Custom blocks systems that are “ticked” in your world used in minigames plugins, custom crops plugins, crates and much more! 
Week 5

Packets & Holograms

Modifying packets can LITERALLY mean you have full control over everything in the game:

  • Disguise entities to literally “swap” any mob into another or change player skins to “trick” certain players.
  • Render fake GUIs such as showing sign editor, workbench, a chest or any other inventory in the game and make them actually functional.
  • Filter server messages to catch and edit EVERY message the server sends to any player, including messages from other plugins or the server itself.
  • Develop anti-cheats! This is a great place to start if you want to make your custom anti-hacks or anti-cheat plugin!

In lesson 1 you’ll create amazing circles from ANY particles you like, and even make those circles rotate around player without frustrating math.

Week 6

Particle Effects & Advanced Rendering

Most people hearing “requires math” imagine frustrating functions and confusion. 

The truth is, most people were taught math wrong. 

It is filled with theory, not fun. It is frustrating, not exciting. And after forced years of poor education style, most give up.

Until now.

That way, we save up to 85% of theoretical never-used information and give you only the 15% you really need, are excited for and implement in your plugin IN MINUTES.

In lesson 3 we’ll work with vectors to target ground entities and make them blow!

Lesson 2 shows you how to draw in all dimensions the game has to offer, such as you can create epic spheres or polygons around players.

Here’s the good news — we completely reversed our math learning process to help you get results THE SAME DAY!

We start at the end to VISUALLY teach you the most exciting and fun parts of math, and then reverse engineer our way down to the only theory pieces you need to draw stunning particle effects you choose.

Learn vectors the EASY way to create amazing laser pointers (as you’ve seen above) or even an insane server-based kill-aura.

Here’s all you’ll learn in week 6:

  1. Drawing circles — Why people think math is hard and give up (and how to “reverse” its learning process to make it easy). Into the world of the unit circle, sin, cos and radians… even if you’ve never heard about them before. Drawing a circle around the player in Minecraft using particle effects!
  2. Spheres and cylinders — Creating a 3D effect we use to display a sphere in Minecraft.
  3. Vectors and lines — Creating a visualized line from yourself in the direction you are looking into. Creating “kill aura” and target entities automatically (or make them shoot at you).
  4. Rotation — Drawing circles that rotate dynamically when player looks away.
  5. Game scenes & animations — Creating scenes in Minecraft to display entire animated sceneries like the big networks! Using armor stands to mimic and spawn fake items and blocks. Using invisible entities to render huge items in the world.

You’ll also learn about targeting, so you can shoot at multiple entities at once, or you can reverse this process to make mobs shot at you!

Even if you’re a total beginner I’ll teach you how to make animated scenes and custom-sized blocks (without mods) like the big networks.

Week 7

Design Hypixel-Like Scenes

  1. Render framework — “Smart” coding secrets to make Hypixel-like animations and complicated scenes.
  2. Crate scene — Get full source code for the most popular big network animations such as crate opening scene.

Particles & Animations (Even If You Hate Math)

  1. Butterfly and wings particles — Creating a stunning butterfly and wings particle effect around the player (without having to remember complicated math formulas).
  2. Spiral and phased effects — Creating a spiral effect and a phased effect where particles appear slowly from the top to bottom.
  3. Chest open close — Sending fake block animations to certain players.
  4. Title animations — Animating titles and bars (action bar, boss bar).
  5. Animated GUI items — See the image below!

Even if you’re a total beginner in math you’ll SEE the effects on your screen allowing you to learn VISUALLY without theory or remembering functions.

Personal Support 2x/Week

Here's what the author of Paper said about our trainings
Customer feedback feedback screenshot from Aikar

With 2x/weekly live calls where you can chat or bring a microphone and speak with us live (or chat if you don’t have a microphone), the level of support is the closest you can get from an educational institution. 

We also have a private 1,800+ member group on Discord and a proprietary platform (NOT Facebook) with group discussions. People use it to get help, find coding partners or share their creations. 

Customer feedback screenshot from Patrick
Customer feedback screenshot from Leo

With our personalized support you can literally save DAYS of trial-and-error and so you can actually spend time creating great plugins, not hunting bugs.

No Spoon Feeding, Build Environment You Can't Find Anywhere Else

This is not a copy-paste training where you end up with premade code and are unable to move on your own. 

We’ll give you a rock-solid foundation you can build upon to heights never before possible. 

Once you understand the concepts you can make things completely unique from what you see on the screen.

We have students making their own libraries and systems a few months after taking our program, becoming 100% self-reliant and limitless. You’ll see these people on Discord or on the live calls…

But I Lack Great Ideas!

Here, your imagination is no longer the limit

Doing anything on your own feels lonely if the people around you just “don’t get it”. 

That’s why we have 1,800+ members in our 2 communities on the same wavelength to share, collaborate and grow together.

Our community combines the best of both worlds:

It connects people who are motivated and want to win, and gives you the help and moral support you need when you get stuck to get you back on track quickly, even if you just need someone to talk to to get you motivated…

Frequently Asked Questions

We’re gifting you a full Java Masterclass™ training completely for free if you need to learn Java knowledge first. Minecraft plugins are made in Java and you will need to take our free class first before fully understanding how to make NMS-based plugins.

I totally understand… In my childhood I’ve been diagnosed with ADHD and struggled to sit still and focus at school. At 14 yo we relocated to Norway and I had to learn tow new languages (English and Norwegian). I was forced to find and develop various tools and techniques to help myself stay on track and push through. I would not be able to deliver a 4.87-star rated course without them.

Best of all, I am sharing all of those in Week 2 of NMS Advanced! I 100% believe that with these tools you achieve more than the ‘average’ people that’s completely healthy would ever do. Proof: here

It’s also worth to mention that you have lifetime access, there’s no pressure or time limit as for when you have to finish. Our private member group is always there for you. I’ve been coding everyday since 2013 so we’re not going away any time soon. Proof: here (see the date when ChatControl was published)

Videos can be paused, rewinded, you can change the speed to 0.50, 0.75, 1.25 or even 1.50x depending on how you like it.

Here’s what our students say:

If English is not your first language and you’re afraid that you will not be able to follow up, we have good news for you.

First, each video has a textual presentation of what we are going to cover, so you can just read it from the screen. Second, there are lots of downloadable materials you can read on screen and translate. 

You can go ahead and try it, with our 30 days money back guarantee, there’s no risk.

Free education is awesome but I would have to get another job to make ends meet and then if I would be making this training in my spare time only, the quality would suck like every other free tutorial out there. We are selling it for under $100 with lifetime access and personalized coaching calls which is literally a no brainer compared to other paid trainings (often even without a money back guarantee like we have).

If you can’t afford the course, I think you would agree that you need this program more than anyone. In fact, some of my most successful students have had their back against the wall financially when they started (as did I). 

There is plenty of ways you can make that money back selling Minecraft development services on sites like SpigotMC.org or MC-Market.org in less than a 5 days after you’ve implemented just 10% of what we teach…

So I ask you to eliminate the thought “I can’t afford this” and instead replace it with “How can I afford this”.  

You need to get creative and think of how you can find the money. There’s PayPal financing, credit cards, loans, parents, friends, family, you could even sell something and use the money from that. Don’t just use that excuse, get creative and start thinking of ways that you can make this work. With the payment plan we offer you can get started today, just contact us. That’s all the money you need to get started right now, today.

What we teach will work on Windows, macOS and Linux.

In fact, we have separate setup videos for Windows and macOS. You will find links to your specific platform for all software we use along with detailed setup instructions.

You can use IntelliJ IDEA, Eclipse or even NetBeans or any other tool to code. 

The course is recorded using IntelliJ however it includes separate setup instructions for Eclipse as well.

The course works for Minecraft 1.7.10 to 1.21 (using Mojang’s or Spigot’s mappings).

If you want to code for an older Minecraft version, you can utilize our special automatic compatibility layer that will make your code work across all MC versions WITHOUT you having to write twice, three times or do complicated things like importing multiple versions etc.. You will learn this in the course.

Yes it will work for you, we understand that most people are very busy and have full time jobs, families, commutes and hardly any free time. We designed this program so that you can work through it even if you’re hard pressed for time. You can listen to the training while travelling, on the bus or even at your job with headphones in.

It doesn’t matter what your schedule is like, if you can set aside at least 3 hours per week you will be able to work your way through it.

Even if you can’t start right away… reserve your spot and go at your own pace. These lessons aren’t live, they’re pre-recorded and available online inside our training portal. You can login whenever you want, on your own time and on your own schedule. If you’re asking about the Q&A calls, those are live and, yes we record and archive all of them.

I’ve tried that and yeah, it cost me 7 years. Good luck with that.

See, when I started, there were no courses like this, and I had to learn everything from numerous sources out there. Soon I discovered how painfully slow and frustrating it was. Most people dreaming about their server 2.0 never make it and new people that find about Minecraft soon leave and play Fortnite.That’s why I decided to change this.

The problem with free YouTube tutorials, Udemy courses or articles is that they are painfully chaotic, disorganized, out-dated, unsupported and offer low coding standards with explanations worth of a fifth grader.

What we do differently is we offer a proven system, detailed and high-quality content, expert mentorship and the Foundation system. There’s step-by-step process you follow, get help when needed and get results, everything is organized and updated regularly.

Next, in all of my paid products I use the Foundation system to remove repetitive code. People waste weeks coding from scratch and never really get to their ideas since they waste so much time on the basics that it’s driving me insane. That’s why I decided to take out that library, battle-proven and tested in all premium plugins since 2015, and teach using it.

Finally I’m a huge believer in self-development and self-mastery, and will show you how to get organized, disciplined and achieve greater results in the arenas of life you’ll set for yourself. There are honestly no courses in Minecraft let alone in computer programming with an empathy on self-mastery.

And you and I know that once you get stuck, frustrated or simply life happens it’s not just about coding… After speaking with lots of students I included self-mastery and self-development parts in our new courses.

First… I’ve been in this niche for ten years, I’ve lived and breathed it every single day for those 10 years and never deviated. Minecraft is my thing, it’s my art form. The best way you can judge whether somebody is trustworthy and able to deliver is by their level of commitment to their customers and craft.

For one, I have absolutely mastered my field and got over 700,000 downloads with my products, not only that but I’ve been able to transfer my skills to hundreds of others and together over 2,000 people have signed up for my past trainings.

You can go to our website, https://mineacademy.org/reviews and look for yourself, just look at all the success stories we have. There’s more than 900 reviews. Our average customer rating is 4.87 out of 5 stars. We have more satisfied students, more customers and more success stories than any other program available today. Not only that but I’ve invested over $20,000 of my own money into making the world’s best training program for Minecraft. This is my life’s work, my results are proven, my students results are proven. There’s more proof for this than there is proof that the Earth is round.

What Would You Say 1 Year From Now?

This is as risk free as it gets, more importantly though...

What is the risk of not trying this? What could you lose by not making the decision to join this program and make change in your life?

The people on Discords who have been skeptical to our training but never tried it a year ago are still doing the same thing not making progress this year.

Every person who tried NMS Advanced was once a “normal” person and locked into the “safe life matrix”. Every one of them made a decision to become someone else no matter what. 

Feeling unease before making an enrollment decision is normal and understandable. Everyone feels this way and doubts things initially.

The plane takes off against the wind not with it. If a baby would stop trying learning how to walk after its first fall it would never have learned to walk…

This your chance to make the decision risk free and join us in taking your life and server to the heights previously only available to big networks or massive development teams!

Make The Decision!
