LWC is the longest-lived single block protection plugin that protects both the block itself and contents of Chests, Furnaces, and Dispensers. It can also protect any other blocks, and by default will also protect Doors (Wooden + Iron), Signs and Trap Doors.

Blocks can be protected with three basic protection types:


By default, only you can access this protection. You can also modify it (or specify when creating) to add other players or groups to the protection, so they can access it. Say you wanted Notch and Hidendra to both access the protection. When creating the protection, you could do /cprivate Notch Hidendra or if it already exists /cmodify Notch Hidendra. If you wanted to remove Hidendra from the private protection, you can use /cremove -Notch


A password is set on the protection and anyone that knows the password can open it. You yourself also need this password each time you log in.


Mainly targeted at community chests, a Public chest means just that: anyone can access it, but no one can protect it which makes it advantageous because it cannot be made private by someone else.


  • /lwc - The LWC command for everything, however aliases are available to make some commands shorter. Type /lwc in-game for more detailed help.
  • /cprivate - The alias of /lwc create private (or /lwc -c private), it creates a private protection.
  • /cpassword <password> - The alias of /lwc create password <password>, it creates a passworded protection.
  • /cpublic - The alias of /lwc create public, it creates a public protection
  • /cremove - Allows you to remove a protection you own (or if you're an LWC admin, any protection) - you must click on the protection after using /cremove in order to remove it.
  • /cunlock <password> - Allows you to attempt to gain access to a passworded protection after LWC tells you you attempted to open a password protection.
  • ... more! There are aliases for all major used commands and every alias is not listed here.


Advanced permissions

Basic permissions:

  • lwc.protect - Allows the player to create and manage their own protections. It also allows them to use enabled modes and flags.
  • lwc.mod - Allows the player to open any chest, but not remove them.
  • lwc.admin - Gives the player absolute power to LWC - this node should be considered dangerous if used incorrectly as this node essentially gives you the right to destroy every protection (and even the block & inventory contents associated with it) in one command!
  • lwc.deny - Prevents players with this node from interacting with anything LWC can protect. For example, from opening or destroying protected and unprotected chests, furnaces, etc if protectable.

    Hey Hidendra!

    I recently felt a lot of lag on my server and it seems like LWC got either some kind of memory leaks or unoptimized code, this is my timings using Spigot, look at the PCT of LWC compared to the others.


    Take care,

    i can't protect repeater (356) and comparator (404). I put them into core.yml but they cant be protected. Other blocks like lever, stone_plate and so on can be protected.

    I tried with repeater, comparator, redstone_repeater, redstone_comparator, redstonerepeater, redstonecomparator, diode, 356, 404. Nothing works.

    Any ideas?

    If I had helped you, a like would be nice. Thank you.

    Have a nice day,

    @JeffyD4tch - /lwc admin reload. @NewBestACS - /region flag (region name) blocked-commands lock,cprivate,cpublic,cdonation. Now for my question, is there a way to block /lwc -o for my default group? And how do i set /cinfo as a staff perm only, using pex?

    I'm encountering a silly problem. I originally posted on the Bukkit Help forum, but was directed here. Basically, I have LWC loaded onto my server. Ingame, I can type all the neccesary LWC commands, "/cinfo" for example. The issue is that all the commands that require a protection to be punched show no response when I actually punch them.

    I get all the typical "Punch a protection to yada yada yada", but when I actually punch it, there's zero response. No error messages. Nothing. It's just like I walked up to a chest and punched it in vanilla. Does anyone know what could be doing it? It might be some error I've made in configuration, as I'm just setting up the server from scratch.

    Also, for anyone wondering about getting LWC, this plugin is by far my favorite chest locking plugin in my entire time playing Minecraft. (Since Alpha 1.1.2) I recommend it highly.

    I don't understand how limitsv2 works. I have it set like this :

        default: 3
            default: 5

    And the group "isa" still have a limit of 3 protections. Any idea? Also, /lwc debug doesn't list my groups. Only default. I'm using PermissionsBukkit.
