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.

    Are there any plans for container interactions with storage minecarts to be logged in the near future? So far that is the only issue I am having (I have been using the plugin on a server i play on with my friends for about 6 months), the plugin runs nicely and logs(excluding storage minecarts, unless I am missing something) everything i need, plus some other useful things that I hadn't been looking for specifically(for example clicking buttons and levers), keep up the great work on this great plugin.

    So, i use this plugin is first person shooter server where the map is dynamic. So terrain, buildings and stuff gets destroyed on bullet hits and explosions.

    What i need is to get the plugin work AUTOMATICALLY, from command block or other script.

    So, my map is about 2500x2500 blocks. Maximum amount for radius for the command seems to be limited to 100 like it tells when trying anything larger. Plugin tells me to do /co rollback t:12h r:#global instead When i try to do that, plugin tells me that you didn't specify rollback radius ?? I did #global ?

    Anyways co rollback t:12h r:#global is the command i need. But how do i get it to work ?

    @dmulloy2: Go

    Development builds of WorldEdit aren't currently supported.

    @codewow: Go

    Not currently, but you can run both plugins side-by-side without issues.

    Been getting this error with CoreProtect and WorldEdit, something with the new WorldEdit update I assume.

    have anyone been able to get the purge to work with mysql? my database never changes after a purge

  • Avatar of Ironic8b49 Ironic8b49 Jul 07, 2014 at 21:00 UTC - 0 likes

    Was wondering if this plug-in would tell me who use TNT on a base via canon a few hundred blocks away?

    Is there any way to convert Prism data into CoreProtect data?

  • Avatar of FoxyFullmoon FoxyFullmoon Jul 04, 2014 at 15:11 UTC - 0 likes

    Would it be possible to configure the purge command to only purge specific tables? For example, I want to purge block logging older than 60 days but I'd like to keep an ongoing history of chat.

    If not I can always set the OS to purge the database with a cron job, but I'd like it to be done by command in my command scheduler.

    Edit: Found a solution on the command page ^_^ I was aware of the exclude param. /co purge t:60d e:chat

    At which threshold does use of MySQL become necessary? I administrate a large prison server and I'd like to know when to switch from flatfile to SQL-based storage.

    Willing to do private development, send me a PM

    @TWSSYesterday: Go

    thx, it was MySQL, but with 48milion rows.
