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.

    Is it possible to do a command exclusion? Or is that something that can be added? I'd like to have command logging turned on, but I don't think anyone should have the ability to view whispers, which currently are logged like other commands.

    @Goldentoenail: Go

    To the best of my knowledge, this is not possible. The best you can do is to simply deny your Mods rollback permissions and save it for the Admins. You could also give it to trusted Mods only, perhaps create sub-tiers in your staff team, but that may generate jealously and internal conflict, which is never healthy for a server!

    By any chance will this plugin be ported over to sponge?

    I was wondering if there's a way to transfer data from MySQL to SQLite?

    Is it possible to restrict the use of /co rollback :#global using permissions?

    I know that the default radius is 10, but as soon as some of my mods learned about #global we started having problems with them rolling back things which they should not.

    Even better would be a radius limit permission which could be applied to various levels of server staff..

    It would be nice if it logged player deaths and also nice if the lookup data display had the option to display actual timestamps rather than x hours ago.
