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.

    WILL this be updated to go with Minecraft 1.8?

    I've been using this plugin for while, and it's fairly decent. It can be a bit slow at times and the WorldEdit logging never works (and I have it enabled on the config), I would recommend it.

    Awesome plugin, so glad I can bust griefers in the builders world and rollback the griefs. Easy to use too!

    @AwzumSauze: Go

    You can already do that: /co rollback p:Andy,Amy r:#global t:30m

    You guys should add a feature where it marks 2 players as one, like: /co rollback p:Andy&Amy r:#global t:30m Which is useful if Andy breaks a block and Amy replaces it with another.

    All are utf8_polish_ci.

    I hope that version for 1.8 will have utf8 support.

    @Jacold: Go

    For each table, try setting the default character set to UTF8.

    I was mistaken when saying the current version has UTF8 support, I just checked, and only the (private) development versions do (since April 15th...)

    @Intellii: Go

    CoreProtect is the only plugin on my server which replaces polish diacritic letters with ?s in MySQL database. So what must I reconfigure to repair that?

    @Jacold: Go

    It already has UTF8 support. If you're using MySQL, you probably don't have your database configured properly.
