Standard Installation and Basic Test


Just drop the FoundDiamonds.jar in your plugins folder and reload!

If you're an OP, continue to the next step. If not, give yourself the permission fd.*
(You'll give normal players fd.broadcast for broadcasts, and fd.monitor for admin messages and light level monitoring.)

The best way to test the plugin and verify that it's working is to find some natural iron or coal and break it! You should see a message.

Note: FoundDiamonds does not announce blocks that a player has placed (Unless an OP or a player with the fd.* permission uses /fd clearplaced after placing the block)
Note: Only Players with fd.broadcast can see the broadcasts (this plugin requires permissions)

Permissions, commands, and configuration file information

Recent Changelog

Version 3.6.4
  • Note: Traps may or may not work in this version. Not sure what direction to go with these yet.
  • Updated outdated licenses and renamed packages
  • Fixed a bug with the clearplaced command not working for flat file setups
  • Fixed odd things in the config
  • Fixed a bug where it was impossible to give out one random item
  • Fixed a bug where the random item is also given to the person who mined the diamonds...
  • Added random potions to the config so you can now select which potions to give out (even bad ones maybe!)
  • Removed potion messages for now and replaced with something far simpler
  • Added more default potions (night vision is cool!)


  1. Is the ore you broke a block that was placed by you or someone else. Do /fd clearplaced?
  2. Is the world you're breaking ores in listed in /fd world list?
  3. Are you using the latest version of FoundDiamonds? /fd version
  4. Are you using the CB build this was built against?
  5. Are you breaking ore in creative mode with creative mode disabled in the config?
  6. Did you make changes to the config and forget to do /fd reload?

If none of the above helped you, it's likely that you have found a bug. Please report the bug along with your config.yml and any errors in the console you may be receiving so I can look into it.

    @Ebins: Go This works fine with Spigot 1.8.8 so far for me. Are you having trouble with it?

    @MrsWiccan: Go What kind of bypass do you mean? Like for OPs or Admins?

    The only reason errors occur is because people are doing something wrong.

    Pretty good plugin and still works on 1.8.8 in case anyone is wondering!

    Plugins: PvPManager, PlayerWeight, PvPCycle, PvEManager

    I've used a similar plugin to this before, and today we use this. The similar one had a kickass function, it could show % of ores mined. It would show when a player reach a suspiciously high % of valubles mined, contra to rock.

    This would be an awesome edition to this plugin, it would help us find them pesky X-rayers!

    Usually when something like this happens. It's a recipe for disaster...

    Does it work with finding other ores by mods ? (Cauldron Server, MCPC-Plus-1.7.10-1.1207.01.0180)
