How to use the inspector.

Once you have the inspector enabled ("/core inspect", or just "/co i"), you can do the following:

  • Left-click a block to see who placed that block.
  • Right-click a block to see what adjacent block was removed.
  • Right-click (place) a block in a location to see what block was removed at that location.
  • Right-click (place) a block in another block to see who placed it. (ex: place dirt in water to see who placed the water)
  • Right-click on a door,button,lever,chest,etc, to see who last used it.

A Few Reviews

  • "It's easy to use and lightning fast when it comes to rollbacks."
  • "I've been running a MC server since before Bukkit, so I've used just about every block logger out there. CoreProtect is the best and the fastest."
  • "Go with CoreProtect. It's fast, updated frequently, and logs WorldEdit."
  • "Overall it felt more natural, simpler, and much faster to use CoreProtect than Prism, which just doesn't compare."
  • "CoreProtect brings complex logging and rollbacks, whilst at the same time keeping a low profile."

Plugin Metrics

This plugin utilizes Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which anonymously collects and sends the following information to

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version

Opting out of this service can be done by editing plugins/Plugin Metrics/config.yml and changing opt-out to true.

    This plugin will not be for 1.8 ,right ? If not, can someone give me a link of a plugin similar to this one ? Although it is a Spigot Premium Resource.

    Greetings and Thanks,

    @Extreme_Iron_miner: Go You are full of bullshit, Bukkit is never updating, Spigot took over Bukkit. So there is no reason for the author not to update other then being lazy.

    There is no bukkit 1.8 out yet so stop your whining, 1.7.9 R0.2 is a very stable server. And, come on if the past few pages of comments are people bugging about an update then why would you post a comment. I am sure when the author gets on they will know people want an update without hundreds of comments for an update. I plan to wait for a stable version of 1.8 to come out. What you chose to do with your server is non of my concern but come on can't you just look and see other people asking for an update? Its a mild version of spam. Please stop asking for an update.

    @WinFamSurv: Go

    It just flat out isn't supporting ArmorStands unfortunately. I had hoped MAYBE that it would, if I turned on Entity Death Logging (I had it off previous), but even that didn't do it :\

    What I've been telling my players is if you want to make it so we can know who did it, to encase the stands in glass, which will require the thief to break the glass in order to get to the stand. :)

    Alternative, FrameProtect now has ArmorStand locking support, and is a great plugin regardless. I originally got it for stores, so we could display the item w/o it being able to be glitched out of the frame from various methods from other plugins which can bypass some things (at least used to be able to heh).

    And yea, CP doesn't support WorldEdit's latest versions, which I'm pretty sure he knows. I even tried to bypass that by changing WE's plugin.yml version string to 5.9, but doing that activated a check by CP for WE5.9 and yea, that method it checked against is no longer in >v6.0 of WE :\ lol Oh well, in time, hopefully soon of course. Just have to have less experienced staff be more careful :P

    Let us know what is going on, guys! I for one will pay for this plugin; I acknowledge your hard work. But don't leave us hanging. This plugin is a core, vital one; like worldguard and permissions plugins. We cannot keep going without them, and will be forced to switch to alternatives. Just let us know if you are fed up and do not intend to update further.

    Hello developers of CoreProtect, my servers would be nothing without you. I'd consider throwing the towel. I would gladly pay for this plugin if you will consider it. Don't let it die! It's our life saver.

    It still works perfectly on 1.8, although it will not detect a few 1.8 entities such as armor stands
