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.

    @Intellii: Go

    Can you please not just add an instanceof check to prevent this error from printing out?

    If you had spent 5 minutes reading the commands and help section you would have found out how to use the plugin.... also this should definitely not replace world backups, you obviously havent bothered to read what this plugin is, how it works or anything about it. You cant blame other people for your stupidness.

    Thanks for the fast reply!
    Using the v.2.12.0 and here's a pastebin of the config file:

    Something worth mentioning is that it doesn't log Worldedit, is it something completely broken with our config file?

    @wesseltonfreak: Go

    Please provide a copy of your config.yml file. As well, what version of CoreProtect are you using?

    I have a problem where I've set default-radius to 10, but when I don't specify a radius ingame it defaults to #global.

    Can anyone help me? This is a major issue as it can easily result in a fresh moderator performing a global scaled rollback without meaning to.

    V2.12.0 doesn't seem to work with Spigot 1.8.8-R0.1... Am I doing something wrong, or is it actually incompatible? I've just spent most of today updating my server from 1.8.0 to 1.8.8 and then fixing similar problems with other plugins.

    I trusted this too much, and it has screwed me over. Even though the time is well before any and all griefing, CoreProtect fails to roll everything back to how it was before. Loads of blocks are missing, items are dropped, and it seems to default to 10 blocks radius and it isn't clear how I can make the changes to the entire world at once.

    Don't bother with this plugin, it's not worth your time. Instead, stick with regular backups. I trusted this too much and just lost a shit ton of work and no way to get it back.
