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 Example video of how NoCheatPlus blocks cheats (outdated plugin version).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.

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 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".

    @StreetkillnHD: Go

    Like that but not that ! You hit the right check-group (blockinteract) but it seems you altered the blockinteract.direction settings? The check that was too spammy was blockinteract .visible so you need to alter the action of that one just as with direction (actions: cancel).

    @horsetears: Go

    Did you update the server or other plugins as well? Just remove the kick command from the wrongblock...actions entry for the time being.

    @Nikkolo94: Go

    It is latency with checking for distances and directions. With higher latency the difference from what the server can see to what a player can see can be in the seconds range. So the other player might just have moved out of the hitting range.

    @Hackettbr1: Go

    What does /nuke do ? Basically it depends on what /nuke actually does and also on what permissions you give owners - if you are ok with owners bypassing checks, then just give the owners the bypass permissions.

    @Bodyash: Go

    • Not with the third-last build of NCP? Which is the last you remember build for which this did not happen?
    • Did you update anything else (plugins / server)?
    • Does it always show the same line on top of the stack (fr.neatmonster.nocheatplus.utilities.ds.CoordMap.put(

    Code-wise i don't see how the program can halt/delay there.

    i dont think it is latency because if i remove ncp the problem isnt happening

    Sorry for my shitty english :P

    Players on our server are getting kicked for breaking blocks out of sync a LOT since the last update, even one of the staff members that plays normally. They aren't using any mods, just eff 3 and what not picks, any reason why this just started?

    @StreetkillnHD: Go

    You have to edit the configuration of NCP and then use the "ncp reload" command to apply the changes. The configuration should be in the plugins folder under NoCheatPlus/config.yml .

    To alter the blockinteract.visible actions you will look for the actions entry in the checks.blockinteract.visible section in the configuration (checks: ... blockinteract: ... visible: .... actions:). Then to the right of "actions: " you remove everything but one "cancel" entry.

    @CrueIdog: Go

    I intended to ask back, but seems i did not write it down.

    Permissions are not 100 % consistent in naming, i think you should use nocheatplus.checks to let players bypass "checks" that are performed for players actions.

    The other shortcut permissions are problematic, because the mods permissions don't update with world changing and the official bypass permission bypasses more than good (e.g. command hiding).

    The other question is if you really want to disable all, because some cheats can tax the server a lot if not dealt with. If it is just some checks you want to disable, you could consider using a minimal world-specific configuration file (savebackconfig set to false + just disabling specific checks). Disabling the check by configuration should also save you more performance than using permissions.
