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.

    @chrisotherwise: Go

    I do 48hr full back up's of a multiverse world with no issue, no database corruption. I think it would be really bad luck to do a backup, then have to revert to a time just around that backup, just as changes are happening at that location. I think at worse it will swap out a few blocks it shouldn't. We have never had an issue and have restored a few times. In fact we have restored the different map's and not the database (we run a number of worlds). Our back up's take around 2 hours in total for all the worlds via FTP to remote site. There is no possibly way to save the world state of every block simultaneous to the core protect database. I'm presuming you would have to effectively have an infinite number of databases. I challenge any server owner to have an instantaneous save, even with only a single small world! So basically I wouldn't worry about it!

    I am by far an expert however I will offer my insight, I believe the only risk there is would be the slight possibility while your making a backup copy of your entire server is that if.... You /save-off /save-all (you just saved the world states) if enough time lapses after world save before your coreprotect database is saved (maybe a few hundred ticks) then there may be some events that coreprotect recorded happening that your world backups don't have.

    I would try to find a way to save the database as soon as the worlds backed up so they will be as close to being matched as possible.

    I'm writing a backup script for our Bukkit server. Normally I would do:

    [ run a backup of the server tree here ]

    Will doing this backup the coreprotect database safely? or do I need to stop the server first? I don't mind losing a few minutes of data, but I don't want to end up with a corrupted database file.

    What I would love to see either incorporated as an option into CoreProtect or some independant plugin is the following...

    an event monitor that monitors all explosions and the destruction, waits a configured amount of time then with a configurable setting of rate, proceed to regenerate the effected area.

    Coreprotect is awesome, worldguard and various user property protection plugins are fantastic as well, however it is a big, big world can we agree? We all get bored stiff sometimes, correct? Why not let your users and yourself get some frustration out once in a while by blowing the wild up.. No administration need be present for the world to heal from the abuse.

    Maybe such a thing already exist, I am not sure. I know the simulare minigame reset type plugins exist, but not sure they are precise with what I am specifying.
