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.

    People should be patient and respect the fact that developers actually have a life outside of making plugins.

    An update for 1.8 will happen, you all just need to wait!

    @TheTekNinja: Go

    Yes it does, it logs everything except armor stands on my server. Have you tried updating spigot to the latest release?

    I just wanted to say that although many people will flame and bug for an update, there are people out there that are very grateful for the work you have done.

    Thanks for all the time and effort you put into this plugin! -Chaos

    a lot of plugins are way easier to update than a logger/rollbacker, some of them didn't even need any editing, just a version change.

    plugins that work with vanilla block additions usually do have issues once new blocks are added, or the way the game sees the blocks are changed.

    BTW it is possible he is working on an update, is busy with life, or is waiting for sponge to be released so he has an api to work with that isn't having problems with legal issues.

    @TWSSYesterday: Go

    It doesn't work perfectly fine if it's not tracking 1.8 blocks.

    Um how bout Mr. Clucky show some respect?? See I never used any derogatory language in my post, I simply asked what's the hold up on a 1.8 update. You see 1.8 has been out some months now and this is the only plugin out of the 50 that I use that still has not to been updated. That is not my fault and also not my job. So how bout instead of taking shots at me you mind your own business ducky. Besides I am not the one with an outdated plugin. these folks are.

    They need to get to work!!

    Works, but seems to ignore armour stands, and rollbacks all banners as pure black. :( Still, better few bugs than not working at all.

    It works perfectly fine to all those saying it doesn't... Using 1.8.1 Spigot.

    Amazing plugin. A shame that it hasn't been updated to 1.8. Thanks for all the work on it, it's awesome, but I have to switch plugins I suppose.
