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
  • No modifications to CraftBukkit.jar is needed
  • 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.

    @iGamingStudioX: Go

    Chest being stone is a feature called ProximityHider, which hides chests from xray until players are close enough to see them. You can disable it in the config.

    What's your view-distance? Set it to less than 6. Also, leave compression at 1, having it higher will significantly take CPU.

    Finally, Orebfuscator should not affect TPS at all. If it does, then you're hosting too many players on a very slow machine.

    Show me your config file.

    Alright, today I tried the plugin out. And what I get was lots of glitches and lags... Here is the list of glitches: Blocks of stone will suddenly turn into the blocks I set to be randomized. Chests turn into stone sometimes and only return to normal when hit. When blocks are broken, they will reappear. They take at least 2 times to really break it.

    And here's the biggest problem. After a while having this plugin installed, massive lag started to happen... The TPS dropped from 20 to 18 then 12. Command takes a few second to actually work and players get disconnected by end of stream errors massively... This became such a problem that I uninstalled a plugin... Can someone tell me a fix for the bugs and how to config it so it is the least laggy (Suppose I want every single CPU). At the same time hide all the diamond ores... Spawners... Chests... Mossy cobblestone and mineshafts.

    @iGamingStudioX: Go

    Orebfuscator uses your other free cores on your server to process chunks, so it doesn't impact the game at all. If you're just concerned about wasting electricity then sure, but there are no reason to worry about orebfuscator taking CPU much as long as you don't change the config to some crazy values.

    The best way to minimize CPU is to reduce view-distance in your server.properties file. Reducing that value by one or two is usually more than enough in CPU usage reduction compared to completely disabling orebfuscator.

    @iGamingStudioX: Go

    Engine 2 is much safer. With engine 1 some smart hackers can still get around.

    Check the updated versions?

    pls update this plugin!!!

    And also, is engine mode 1 or 2 better? I like the way engine mode 2 Orebfuscates everything but I am afraid it will use to much CPU time...

    Can I know just which cobfiguration will decrease CPU usage... I only need a few features and I want as much free CPU as possible, not just 'not laggy'. And also, how much CPU will the plugin use compared to other plugins? Can you please give some examples and configuration that decrease CPU usage? Please.

    @iGamingStudioX: Go

    Default configuration should be good enough for both. Just install the jar and it should start working after a restart.

    Ok, but how to set the configuration so it Orebfuscates all the ores and uses least CPU?

    @iGamingStudioX: Go

    Your server should have plenty enough to run orebfuscator on default settings. If it lags then you can trade-off some protection for performance, but I highly recommend default setting to start with.
