NoCheatPlus Christmas and New Year


Detect and fight the exploitation of various flaws/bugs in Minecraft!

Features Permissions Commands Configuration Jenkins


NoCheatPlus attempts to prevent cheat clients from exploiting weaknesses of Minecraft or its protocol, making your server more safe. Checks cover a wide range of issues including flying and speeding, fighting hacks, fast block breaking and nukers, inventory hacks, chat spam and other types of malicious behaviour. For a more complete list have a look at the Features Page.

NoCheatPlus puts emphasis on configurability and allows you to customize actions that are carried out when a player fails a check (e.g. silent cancelling, executing commands, just logging). Bypass permissions allow to control what check to apply for which players, all checks can be deactivated in the configuration, also having the option for world-specific configuration files. Many checks allow more detailed configuration to adjust sensitivity.

Certainly NoCheatPlus is not a magical bullet, it uses a lot of heuristics and even guessing, so you will encounter false positives here and there and also not catch every single violation. Example video of how NoCheatPlus blocks cheats (outdated plugin version).

NoCheatPlus was introduced by NeatMonster, building on the code base of NoCheat by Evenprime.

The following plugins might be useful to have a look at.


Allows NoCheatPlus to activate packet-level checks, covering a range of exploits that can't be monitored using ordinary means. Since roughly Minecraft 1.7.10, the fight.speed check can't work as expected anymore, due to changes in CraftBukkit. With ProtocolLib this can be repaired.

CompatNoCheatPlus (cncp)

Make plugins like mcMMO, Citizens, MagicSpells or MachinaCraft more compatbile with NoCheatPlus. Not all existing plugins are covered (yet), but you can leave a note or create an issue/ticket request for cncp.


Orebfuscator fights all sorts of X-ray-hacks by altering the map information that is sent to the players, such that they have to mine blocks to actually reveal what is behind. Virtually a "must have". (Latest versions of Spigot contain features of Orebfuscator.)

    @dimasaurio: Go

    The download page states it's for 1.6 - which might be an issue with PEX if you are running it with 1.8. We did have difering reports of crashes (not necessarily involving NCP though) with java 8 and MC 1.8, some concerning netty.

    @alek123222: Go

    You can remove the kick action (just remove cmd:kickpackets from the list). I don'T suggest donwtuning the setting because that will allow even worse speeding - while downtuning stunning will be ok with set-backs, supposedly.

    Got a problem, I use a plugin called skillapi and one of my skills stun targeted player in position, nocheatplus straight away kicks that player for sent too many moves packets. Where can I down tune this setting?

    @Simo389: Go

    The double jumping is outside of the usual envelope, provided they use the "allow-flight" property to make "double jump" work. Which plugin/method is it?

    @xion87: Go

    Very odd, even with so few events counted. What server version is that ?

    @MasterMithrandir: Go

    Some day likely - right now we are slightly behind. In general we encourage to use plugins that cover things we don't or can't or don't want to, provided those are compatible etc. I can't judge how good that plugin is, also i'd always be careful with people boasting about "false positive free". If it has been around for a while and has some reviews and claims to be compatible... why not try it? I will try to get back at NCP these days to gain back some ground, we've recently lost.

    @dimasaurio: Go

    Isn't your version of PermissionsEx outdated?

    @MyPictures: Go

    Erm, I did say in my comment that I'm using the version 'from April 30th' which is still the latest version. :p

    Here's what the NCP log looks like:

    Any ideas on how to fix? It's just a simple double jump plugin, so maybe NCP is miscalculating something?

    Should I get one of these emerging plugins which claim to block the hacks which are not yet being stopped by NCP, or should I wait untill you guys get to cover them?:

    Do you think you'll actually get to block hacks such as KillAura, AntiKnockback... etc... efficiently some day?

    @DaisukeVN: Go

    Currently there is rather incompatibilities...

    @Bronzeteufel: Go

    omg 1.8.4? Better post the full output of "ncp version" or quickly state ncp build number, even if we might know that you are running about the latest release - it's just more clear to us then :).
