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.

    By any chance, is it possible to merge LWC databases together?

    New LWC installs makes errors, the website "update.griefcraft.com" returns a 404, required files doesn't get downloaded... resulting both files at 0 bytes (in lib folder inside of LWC)

    Dang... Hope you can fix this Hiendra... Critical plugin for my server, and those lag issues while placing/breaking containers... its annoying...

    Can someone fork and update? Ugh... gotta wait but those lags... ay :(

    so you think that LWC can be the lag issue (performance)? Cause I don't know if you have that problem, while placing/breaking protectable containers... random lag appears (can take a second or less) but this is annoying... players tells my server is laggy x.x

    Yeah, the latest Dev Build was Feb. 6th, which was only last week. I am too scared to update to a dev build, so I guess I'll just wait it out!

    I've been using lwc for a while and it's been great.. except that it's not so lightweight and very very resource dependent.


    As you can see, Coreprotect is suppost to be quite a big plugin and that is only 2% compared to LWC which all I wanted is to protect chests from other players as you never know when you get a griefer on your server.

    by the way if you do /lwc admin version you get some errors if you want to fix that ^^

    It can't be dead, Fight.. stop spreading rumors. Dev builds are active, but does not fix the lag problem.

    Forgot to mention, my server has 10 ~ 25 players daily and this is getting annoying... I dont want to use the other "lockette" thing since it creates signs.. too many signs on chests... = lag.

    Hit 47 players yesterday and it had much more lag.

    LWC is critical for my server so please fix those performance issues... That would be awesome cause I guess ill hit the 100k max at 1-2 years...
