🧩 MChallenges

MChallenges provides a variety of modifications (challenges) to change up your gameplay experience.
Challenges can make the game harder, more interesting, or just plain silly. Or everything at once!

▪ Part from MUtils
▪ Works perfectly with MTimer to count your time & death punishments!

This project started in 2021 and quickly evolved into us finding the limits of plugins with the curiosity how you can modify Minecraft to don't lose fun beating it. We hope you will have the same fun while playing like us!

Latest Update Trailer


(Can contain features not available for everyone*)


🎯 Challenges

Each challenge can be toggled and configured individually inside the Challenge menu (/challenge).
All challenges can be combined and played in multiplayer or singleplayer (some require at least two players).
You have an idea for a new Challenge? We would be happy to hear it in our discord!

▪ Current Challenge count68

*Some Challenges require MUtils Premium to keep all projects and needed servers alive :)
