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.

    LWC 4.4.0 Build 886 works in CraftBukkit 1.7.2-R0.3 and Spigot 1.7.2-R0.4 with Java 1.7.0_51 (64-bit).

    I have been using this particular build since it was compiled on Aug 26, 2013 with the current version of CraftBukkit back then and every version since then.

    I also use LWC-Economy B84 and LWCTweaks 3.3.0

    Do any of the dev builds work with 1.7.2? This is the only plugin I'm waiting on.

    Help! My players have permission "lwc.protect" but can (sometimes) open all chests, even the one I created...

    I am running bukkit 1.7.2-R0.2-15 / API 1.7.2-R0.3-SNAPSHOT...

    Why private or public piston doesn't work on redstone? Like door, How does piston work well on redstone with private or public protect?

    @bobbensun: Go

    Try going to survival. This may not work and it may be a internal error. If so go to www.bastebin.com and paste your server log if the survival doesn't work.

    I get this error when running LWC on my Win7 64bit server:

    java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: C:\Minecraft\server\plugins\LWC \lib\native\Windows\amd64\sqlitejdbc.dll: %1 is not a valid Win32 application.

    Also /help lwc doesn't show any help commands even after assigning the lwc.protect permission.

    Plugin loads normally. no errors.

    Commands produce answers in chat.
