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

  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture

    For those of you that are complaining..... you do realize he has a real life? School, and possibly work as well? Plus he runs his own minecraft server. Want to take a guess which notch on the totem poll updating this plugin falls under? The last one. It works on most 1.8 items. And other than the special characters on signs/chat, it works great. He said he will update it.

    This is one of the best block logging plugins out there.

    @Turbotailz: Go

    I could not agree more, the project is invaluable. However I have noticed that it does not seem to like characters such as & or $ on signs or in chat. Other than this we have not found any other bugs. It is amazing how many people expect updates.

    Complaining is not going to make him update the plugin faster. Why would you want to do anything for people who aren't grateful for what you have already given them?

    @Turbotailz: Go

    Yes, but people are complaining because they need it for 1.8 features, not 1.7.x.

  • Avatar of Turbotailz Turbotailz Apr 12, 2015 at 23:34 UTC - 0 likes

    I just wanted to give positive feedback on this plugin, since everyone else is just complaining about how long the update is taking.

    Even though it is not updated for 1.8, it still works perfectly for all 1.7.x features. Yesterday we noticed a huge hedge fence had disappeared, /co i reported it was due to decay (someone had removed a few leaf blocks and the rest decayed as a result). I was able to roll back all the #decay in the world to find out who the culprit was.

    We also have a small issue with TreeAssist where it will sometimes destroy any logs that are near a tree that gets chopped down. CoreProtect does not log this, but a good work around is to roll back the logs before they were placed and then simply restore them.

    Again, thank you for this amazing project, it is definitely appreciated by many server admins :)
