This article will help you to reset the overworld, nether, or end dimensions in your server. If you do not want to spend the time to do this, you can always open a support ticket and our support team will do it for you. If you want to reset the entire world, follow our guide for resetting the world.


Quick Guide

If you are already familiar with FTP and locating folders, these are the steps for you.

  1. Stop the server.
    This can be done in the control panel or from inside the server with the /stop command.
  2. Determine which dimension(s) you would like to reset.
  3. Locate the following files in your world folder on the server for whichever dimension(s) were chosen in step 2.
    <world>/region/ = Overworld
    <world>/DIM-1/region/ = The Nether
    <world>/DIM1/region/ = The End
  4. Delete the region folder for the dimension to reset.
    WARNING: This will reset everything from the buildings in the dimension to all mobs inside of it (excluding players)
  5. Repeat step 4 for all dimensions you want to reset, then start your server

Modded Dimension IDs

Removing a dimension from a mod is very similar, some common dimension IDs from mods are:

  • The Twilight Forest: 7
  • The Beneath: 10
  • Aroma's Mining Dimension: 6
  • Betweenlands: 20

Note: Even in modded servers, the vanilla dimension IDs stay the same.

  • Overworld: 0
  • Nether: -1
  • The End: 1
