Tekkit Restrict

[v1.00] Set "*" Permissions and MicroPermissions

Tekkit Restrict (requires Tekkit Classic)

"My initial opinion of having my own server was that players would get along. Boy, was I wrong. Only 2 days after my server's release, I already had 7 players who duped Gem Armor and blew up spawn about a trillion times. After setting gem armor to a certain rank, they then torched my spawn. After disabling most of EE until a certain playtime rank, they then found their own way around my disabling plugin. (noitem)

Then I decided to make Tekkit Restrict..." - DreadSlicer

Dev Builds

Development builds of this project can be acquired at the provided continuous integration server. These builds have not been approved by the BukkitDev staff. Use them at your own risk.Link to jenkins


Tekkit Restrict uses Hidendra's plugin metrics system, and as of version 1.18 also uses TMetrics by Taeir. This means that the following information is collected and sent to mcstats.org and metrics.taico.nl:

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's Java version
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The minecraft version of the server
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The amount of CPU cores
  • The amount of memory allocated to your server
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version

If you wish to disable Metrics, you can do so by opt-ing out, which you can do in the Metrics config file under /plugins/PluginMetrics/
You can disable TMetrics in the General.config.yml file under /plugins/TekkitRestrict/


Tekkit Restrict has a built-in auto-updater, which connects to BukkitDev to check for updates. If you want to change or disable this behaviour, you can change the update settings in the General.config.yml file.

    Thanks to your response on that last error log. I think you may be right in assuming that this was simply a heap space error. I will continue to observe my server for this same issue occurring in the future.

    However, I Have recently seen a few of these error logs popping up in my console: http://pastebin.com/DiC7qUfK

    This error log may or may not be related, but I wander if it may be a slight issue with the latest dev build of TekkitRestrict.

    On a positive note though, TekkitRestrict appears to be using a lot less CPU than the dev build 1.17 and the new feature of using permission nodes to specify item limits is working seamlessly! :D

    Thanks, Dom

    Well, as far as I can see, everything in the EntityRemover thread is in a try catch, and should throw the warning: "An error occured trying to disable entities" when an error occurs. Since this didn't happen, I think that the "java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space" caused the other errors. It seems the server ran out of memory while executing the entityremover thread and thus stopped it's execution.

    In other words, I think it was a mere coincidence that this error occured and the cause is in the too little memory. As you can see from the other errors, other threads are failing as well because there is not enough memory.

    At the moment, tekkitrestrict gets the list of all entities in the server, and checks for safezones and such while iterating over it. This takes alot of time and the list is often modified while tekkitrestrict is doing this. For this reason, I will see if changing it to go through the entities chunk by chunk is a better way.

    Hi Taeir, this is an unusual error log which I found lying about on my console earlier, just before the server crashed and had a 4 hour downtime.

    From what I can see, it involved the tekkitRestrict entity remover, but would you mind taking a look at it and seeing what you think of it? It may be an issue with other servers using TekkitRestrict..

    Heres the error log: http://pastebin.com/pHQFA2ft (*Read from bottom to top*)

    I look forward to hearing your reply,

    Thanks a lot,

    Thank you for informing me of these crashes. I'm afraid I cannot fix the most serious ones (the ones that actually crash the server). The things that cause them are quite complicated and fixing them would require alot of time, effort and modifying the copyrighted mod files.

    The deployer stuff can easily be fixed and will be in the next version of tekkitrestrict. The computer crash is already automatically fixed if you run tekkitrestrict at least once (might be only in 1.18 dev versions).

    We just have to hope that other people dont get to know about the crashes.

    Ok i found the problem. Turns out I had forgotten a ")" somewhere. In order to setup teh tables, use the following queries:

    CREATE TABLE tr_dbversion (version NUMERIC(3,2));
    INSERT INTO tr_dbversion VALUES (1.2);
    CREATE TABLE tr_limiter (player VARCHAR(16) UNIQUE, blockdata TEXT) CHARACTER SET latin1 COLLATE latin1_swedish_ci;

    Awesome plugin, would it be possible to get a 1.5.2 version for updated tekkit packs & Ftb? Thanks.

    @brend998: Go

    Unfortunately, the project table does not call craftingEvents or anything else that would allow plugin developers to block the crafting of certain items in it. Like JBDiggy said, the best solution is usually to just ban the item globally.

    I do wonder why you use Tekkit Customizer in conjunction with TekkitRestrict. 2 Plugins with similar funcionality can increase server lag quite alot. If you do use it, I recommend you use a feature of only 1 plugin, and disable the event completely for the other. (For example, let tekkit customizer handle bans, disable noitem and limitedcreative in TekkitRestrict)
