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.

    Can I am assume this plugin doesn't conflict with Lockette?

    The only reason I ask is because I want to switch plugins due to the amount of client lag tons of signs in an area can cause. But when I switch I do not want existing locked chests to be unlocked because I removed Lockette. I just want to leave Lockette on for about a month so players can convert before getting all their items stolen.

    Look into core.yml, and add them.

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

    Have a nice day,

    I put one of the dev builds on my server, and console is getting spammed with "[internal] oninventorymoveitem @ location " . Tried a few different varieties but get the same thing. Server is 1.7.2 Spigot

    Lueracraft server - mc.lueracraft.us

    Hey Bodyash,

    I think I'm using the exact same version as you, 4.4.0. As it seems that you have no problems it might be that another plugin on my server is interfering with LWC, what do you think?

    EDIT: + could you send me the link to the one you are using?

    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,
