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."

Plugin Metrics

This plugin utilizes Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which anonymously collects and sends the following information to

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version

Opting out of this service can be done by editing plugins/Plugin Metrics/config.yml and changing opt-out to true.

    Does Coreprotect support Forge servers? We (me and minecolonies mod devs) have server in Forge 1902 and we need a logging system. I have used Coreprotect in Bukkit servers and I love the plugin itself and I would like to have it on our server.

    Hey, I'm using CoreProtect with a default config, file based storage.

    It works really, really well with one exception: torches. They reappear but fall to the ground (as items) unless they're upright on the ground - I'm not sure if they get rolled back before the wall is in place, or if their direction isn't rolled back.

    Edit: also it would be really cool if there was a param for rolled back (eg s:rolled for rolled back actions and s:normal for actions that haven't been rolled back), so I could do something like /co lookup u:griefer s:normal to find if there's any unrolled back actions.

    Thanks, bbqroast

    You marked it as a duplicate and the one that is the original is 2 years old and was also never commented on...

    You can vote for the suggestion here:

    @mormaii2: Go

    As the plugin isn't chunk-based, this isn't planned at the present time. You can use the radius parameter to restrict the rollback to a specific area.

    @IEpicDestroyer: Go

    Any chance this could be added?

  • Avatar of mormaii2 mormaii2 Aug 13, 2016 at 11:04 UTC - 0 likes

    Could you add an option to rollback based on specified chunk ??

    @Intellii: Go

    When I roll back signs which were griefed or blown up by TNT, they lose the text they had on them

    @MARODEUR2: Go

    Logs are stored forever unless you run the "/co purge" command.

    There's currently no option to change the time formatting.
