Orebfuscator - Anti X-RAY:


This plugin is used to counter X-RAY Client mods.

It modifies data that are sent to clients to hide blocks of your choice, such as Ore, chests, dungeons, etc.

It does not manipulate blocks in the world file, thus is safe to use.

ProximityHider is a feature that hides chests that are far from players.


Configuration Guide





Dropbox link removed due to Bukkit regulations. Latest version should be on BukkitDev, if not, then the dropbox link is still in the forum thread.

    @lishid: Go

    I have my current patched build here https://www.dropbox.com/s/m6ygoys4reb3ftd/minecraft_server.jar?dl=0

    currently you have to find build 1649 and patch it with their .bps files, which i have already done with this one

    I also run carbon which hacks in the new 1.8 items and uses an updated protocollib, and makes it so only 1.8 clients can connect


    There really isnt much difference now from actual 1.8 vanilla except for new enchantments and a few small things not working yet

    @lishid: Go

    I can send you an link of the 1.8 compatible spigot (1.7 which allows 1.8 clients to join) but i would wait until they release an real 1.8 build (probably next week) to update this plugin. I think it's not worth to spend time on updating to the 1.8 compatible spigot if an real 1.8 spigot will be released soon :)

    Also I can't get a spigot 1.8 build off md5's server. Anybody got one?

    If you guys do notice, this plugin hasn't updated since 1.8 released.Spigot is the one issuing that message which blocks loading. Probably because they screwed things up for Orebfuscator which couldn't load properly, and they were just like "oh why don't we just not load Orebfuscator at all".

    @Basurci: Go

    I didn't say "bullshit" I just posted what the ACTUAL PLUGIN SAYS QUOTE "Skipping loading of Orebfuscator as it does not work with Spigot 1.8 builds!"

    The plugin's words, not mine.

    No need to be an ass.

    @blopnuts: Go

    You do realized that u said bullshit? Spigot doesn't support 1.8 only it's protocol ......

  • Avatar of blopnuts blopnuts Nov 06, 2014 at 08:18 UTC - 0 likes

    Yes I cannot use this because of the version check on load. it says Skipping loading of Orebfuscator as it does not work with Spigot 1.8 builds!

    @rnoa: Go

    Yes, people are still unable to see anything when using x-ray. Because spigot is still on 1.7.10 patch no major changes.

    Anyone using it with the latest patch of Spigot and Carbon plugin?
