    Plugin category: World Gen

    Suggested name: OldGen - Stop terrain generation or use old world generation code

    What I want: I was thinking it would be useful to have a plugin that would:
    1. Disable map generation and
    2. Optionally generate new chunks from a server.jar that you put in the plugin folder

    This way, you can upgrade the server and not worry about new chunks generating with abrupt transitions, either by disabling the map generation or by disabling it AND having the plugin generate terrain when a player walks near the edge of the map.

    It would also be nice if the plugin could get biome information from the specified jar file as well. My town used to be in the normal biome, now it's tundra.

    I know MCEdit can manually generate chunks from any specified server jar, so if it's only possible to stop world generation, I'll settle for that and manually generate terrain when my friends want to migrate.

    NOTICE: I am NOT asking for a plugin to stop exploration or limit map size. I just need to stop auto terrain generation.

    Ideas for commands: No commands needed for this plugin.

    Ideas for permissions: None needed (all managed server side)

    When I'd like it by: Any time reasonable, within the next 6 months.

    Similar plugin requests: None.
