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.

    do you have one for 1.8.3?

  • Avatar of Sikatsuu Sikatsuu Mar 19, 2016 at 07:45 UTC - 0 likes

    It seems because of some new events, you can fix the double logs when right clicking. Hoping for a fix for that :)

    Nice plugin, it makes a good job though I mostly have to use the rollback multiple time until everything is totally corrected.

    But how can I look up changes in armor stands or item frames?

    @RenditionsRule: Go

    I'll likely add some filtering options for chat lookups in the next release. :)

    Truly the best logging plugin in my opinion. But I was wondering if there was a way to look up when a specific command was done. And if not, can it be added?

    Tahg me for a quick response.

    Updating to the latest version of Spigot will fix the Enderman kill error.
