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.

    It still works perfectly on 1.8, although it will not detect a few 1.8 entities such as armor stands

    Is there a way to roll-back only the stuff that was removed and not placed within a radius.

    Can core protect track armour stands being place or broken? we have had some players items taken from armour stands but cant track any data, is this because they are an entity?

    Hi. Core rollback is broken for me. It was working very well before hand, except now it doesn't. A guy comes on my server, and griefs it. I get /core inspect, except it doesn't say who broke it. I do know who broke it, but core doesn't. This problem was going around my server. Core will not log anything newly built or destroyed. I tried reinstalling the plugin. Restarting my server, but nothing works. I would appreciate a solution for this problem! Thank you for you time!

    Oh and Tekninja you wanna say someone is being rude? Have you read your post? Are these people at bukkit your free servants? Its people like you that made many devs quit minecraft and make me sick. There is no bukkit 1.8 so why should this plugin maker slave his way to please you? Can you not have the common decency to be patient? I hold plugin makers as idols or celebrities and you treat them as slaves why not instead of coming in here acting like an unhappy baby thank them for their work? I am not saying i am perfect but that post made my stomach hurt.

    Thanks to all the devs for all their hard work!! -Iron Miner
