How to use the inspector.

Once you have the inspector enabled ("/core inspect", or just "/co i"), you can do the following:

  • Left-click a block to see who placed that block.
  • Right-click a block to see what adjacent block was removed.
  • Right-click (place) a block in a location to see what block was removed at that location.
  • Right-click (place) a block in another block to see who placed it. (ex: place dirt in water to see who placed the water)
  • Right-click on a door,button,lever,chest,etc, to see who last used it.

A Few Reviews

  • "It's easy to use and lightning fast when it comes to rollbacks."
  • "I've been running a MC server since before Bukkit, so I've used just about every block logger out there. CoreProtect is the best and the fastest."
  • "Go with CoreProtect. It's fast, updated frequently, and logs WorldEdit."
  • "Overall it felt more natural, simpler, and much faster to use CoreProtect than Prism, which just doesn't compare."
  • "CoreProtect brings complex logging and rollbacks, whilst at the same time keeping a low profile."

    Is this plugin abandoned now? I always have a issue where the database corrupts on certain things which i reported long long long ago and its annoying to have to reset the database every month/week. Pity

    Please update to 1.10 because this is the best log plugin who I found and I get a lot of warnings if I use the connection with my mysql database.

    I have an issue where when people click-drag items into chests, core protect does not log those items as being placed in the chest. However, when you open the chest you can indeed see that they did place the items. If they right click an item into the chest, or place something in the chest, then it logs correctly, but if they click and drag, say, a stack of quartz into a chest, it logs nothing. This is making it nearly impossible to figure out whether people are replacing items they took out of a chest, or simply stealing them, without taking a calculator and writing down all the transactions that were done in and out of that chest in a given amount of time. Is there a configuration that can be done to solve this issue, or will there be an update that targets this issue?

    Will there be any update to the latest versions of Minecraft? (from 1.9.x to 1.10) It seems to work in 1.9.4 but an update would be welcomed :)
