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

    If you'd update it to the latest spigot build that would be cool the 1.8 supported version :P Because it completely lost it's support and now players can do what they you know.. want to do X ray

    Ban the player, if you cant trust them get rid of them. I don't give anyone a 2nd chance if they cheat.

    Most people know and uses permissions... If you need such a complex feature, getting permissions is worth it. At least not worth extra time for me to incorporate and maintain a white/black list feature just for one user (seriously, nobody asked for this since 2011).

    I love this plugin. Have you considered adding a player whitelist or blacklist? I have a small server and would like to enable Orebfuscator only for this one player who has been caught using X-ray. I would rather not enable it for everyone as it causes extra CPU usage. Also, when the players lag, fake ores appear, which is annoying for people who wouldn't use X-ray anyway.

    I don't want to set up permissions just for one plugin. It takes a lot of initial setup. Small servers usually avoid permissions plugins.

    @oInfinity: Go

    Well it's theoretically impossible to hide those stuff on a internet based network connection with limited processing power... Since you'll have to tell the player the stuff is there when you think he should see it (based on distance and visibility, which takes a ton of computing to find out), network latency/lag could impact the game for all players, including those who are legit, because you gotta wait a little bit (or a lot if your internet isn't fast) until the information is delivered to you so the game can render the blocks.
