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.

    @Formula350: Go

    im starting to thing the problem lies with spigot. ive always used bukkit and had no problems with it. but due to mojang trying to take them down they had to make some changes of their own

    but now it seems like it takes quite a while for it to record anything

    My server has a mmmassive map (at least from my understanding, nearing 10GB), and right now with 17 people on, it logged my break of a block immediately. But I also have a ton of RAM thrown at it as well :P

    Been using CoreProtect for about a year, definitely a must-have tool for any serious server owner! Thanks so much for keeping it alive!

    I do have a question and/or suggestion, depending on if it's just my ignorance or not lol: - We use a plugin to lock doors and chests, but unfortunately it does not prevent a rather crafty and simple way of looting people's locked chests (we only allow stealing in that regard if the chest has negligently been left UNlocked) which is to place a hopper under it to transfer the items into an unlocked chest. While we can find out who placed the hopper, it doesn't seem CoreProtect can restore the removed chest items on account of it not logging that. So unless I have something misconfigured, my suggestion is: Would it be possible to log items that have been removed (stolen) from chests via #hopper?

    - At all possible to, either when Rolling back or Restoring, to have it rollback to a specific log entry? Last night I had a hiccup where chunks weren't saved, and since CP had all the data to let me fix the missing work, I had simply ran: /co restore t:54.3h r:15 u:Formula350 which had also brought back a bunch of previous mis-pasted copies, despite my Time being set to only 0.1h before that change, and the mis-pasted blocks were done 0.3h before. In other words, by my understanding it shouldn't have restored those ones. Nevertheless, if a person could do something like /co rollback t:#1 r:<radius> etc etc and then it'd only affect the surrounding block's log with a matching time. Or perhaps t:#1+<time> which the +<time> will account for block changes within that additional time frame. Example: t:#1+0.08h would add an factor in that additional 0.08hr into surrounding blocks (since otherwise it'd only be good for worldedits).

    Again, thanks for all your work!

    Intellii posted this on the /r/admincraft subreddit:

    "As well, a quick note regarding the future of CoreProtect: CoreProtect will continue to support whatever server platform has mainstream popularity. At the present time, this platform is still Bukkit/Spigot. However, I'm planning on supporting Sponge once it's in a functional state, as well as the official Minecraft Plugin API, if that ever comes to fruition."
