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 warning got up when i started the server:

    [WorldEdit] Got request to set EditSessionFactory of type net.coreprotect.worldedit.CoreProtectEditSessionFactory from net.coreprotect.worldedit but EditSessionFactories have been removed in favor of extending EditSession's extents.

    This may mean that any block logger / intercepters addons/plugins/mods that you have installed will not intercept WorldEdit's changes! Please notify the maintainer of the other addon about this.

    Is there anyway you can hook this into Movecraft so I can rollback and log ships?

    Hi, is there any directions to setting up MySQL for Coreprotect? I've gotten as far as creating a database and putting the connection info in the Coreprotect config file, but I don't know what else I need to do. Do I need to set up some sort of procedure in mysql, or what?
