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.

    @xSnowBlitzz718: Go

    2.12.0 is designed for 1.8.3 or higher.

    @Slaand: Go

    You need to update to the latest version of CoreProtect.

    @mineyfray: Go

    You should contact the author of that plugin. He can add logging into his plugin via the CoreProtect API.

    @johandre: Go

    You can purge newer data via the console.

    @nesa_shone: Go

    You should be able to use this command via the API to get the last 60 seconds of session data for the player "Notch":

    performLookup(60, Arrays.asList("Notch"), null, null, null, Arrays.asList(1, 8), 0, null);

    I saw coreprotect logs player sessions, any way to get that data with an api? If not could you please add it it would be very helpful? For example tracking how much time player spent online in last x number of days

  • Avatar of johandre johandre Jul 14, 2015 at 20:46 UTC - 0 likes

    Could you please allow use purge data no matter how old it is? Allow us to change it in the config atleast if the 30 days purging is for security reasons.

    CoreProtect - You can only purge data older than 30 days

    @xSnowBlitzz718: Go

    If you want console errors then yes. If not just use 2.10.0, The errors in console are the missing 1.8 things like banners etc,
