Continuation of FoundDiamonds from scratch (Yes, even the MySQL, but 10% of it is from a tutorial). Announces ore finds. Easy to configure. Extra features


  1. Announcing findings of the different ore by players
  2. Able to set to use permissions (Look below)
  3. Able to configure which ore to announce
  4. Announces number of the same ore nearby
  5. Announces light level (in percentage, for fullbright hackers)
  6. Able to set only survival players to then announce
  7. Saves all nearby ores into a list to prevent players from getting it announced again after 30 seconds unlike FoundDiamonds
  8. List will be cleared on server restarts or entries removed on removing the blocks
  9. Random item on mining diamonds
  10. Able to set to disallow mining at light 0, to help in fullbright hackers
  11. SQL and flat file (H2) support!
  12. Using SQL you can also get a player's farmrate!
  13. Auto-updater

    The colors aren't working properly for me anymore. Instead of '[FB] Player found 39 Diamond!' being in all blue, just the '[FB] Player' is colored.

    It can't find the latest version of PEX. This NEEDS an update.

    Will the permissions work with group manager?

    @NeroTNT: Go

    It still works, but only with certain permissions plugins. As far as I know and tested, PermissionsEx is the only one that has a fit with it.

    This was the best "find" announcing plugin I'd seen for server. It's a shame if this one is done for.
