Demonstration 1

Orebfuscator - Anti X-RAY:

Version: 3.0.5

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.

Please also download ProtocolLib and install it in the plugins folder. Download link: http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/protocollib/


  • Advanced algorithm that hides ore, chest and and anything you specify in the configuration
  • Spout compatible, but optional

  • Customize the blocks you want to hide
  • HIDES DUNGEONS and other blocks that are in the dark
  • Different hiding mode, or scrambling.
  • Extensive configuration. Change updating methods depending on your bandwidth and processing speed.
  • Hide hidden chests and furnaces until a player is close to it.

    Users keep getting blocks not loading and the only fix so far is to clear orb cache and relog. Any idea why this is happening?

    I'm also seeing fake TNT where there are exposed stone blocks adjacent to torches. I can provide a screenshot if needed.

    Ah, I see the problem. I will take a dig into the deep minecraft changes and update when I can patch up the plugin.

    Thanks man. I really wants to get fix soon, because Spigot anti x-ray feature works bad with Engine mode 1.

    The last version is the problem. Engine mode 1 doesn't work. It doesn't hide any ore. Engine mode 2 just add TNTs but real ores still persist. There weren't errors in a console.

    @lishid: Go

    Something is wrong with the random blocks. I'll use an world downloaded to download the obfuscated chunks which are send to the client an analyse them. I'll send the result to you later today.

    At the moment it looks like only blocks from the random blocks list are ignored and only TNT is sent to the client, but this was just an quick test with X-Ray. More detail information will follow later today.
