FoundBoxx - Ore Finds Announcer (anti-cheat, xray, fullbright)


Multi-threaded optimizations! Flat file (H2) support!

Custom messages and blocks support!

Stats collection: MCStats Lite is included in the latest versions and will just be collecting really basic information (your server's IP address, and other private information will not be collected) about your server. The collection will be used for the public's (mainly mine) knowledge on the popularity of the plugin, you may choose to opt-out in the configurations by changing the "Allow_Usage_Stats_Collection" option to false. For more information please head to


Continuation of FoundDiamonds from scratch (Yes, even the MySQL, but 10% of it is from a tutorial). Announces ore finds. Easy to configure. Extra features


  1. Announcing findings of the different ore by players
  2. Able to set to use permissions (Look below)
  3. Able to configure which ore to announce
  4. Announces number of the same ore nearby
  5. Announces light level (in percentage, for fullbright hackers)
  6. Able to set only survival players to then announce
  7. Saves all nearby ores into a list to prevent players from getting it announced again after 30 seconds unlike FoundDiamonds
  8. List will be cleared on server restarts or entries removed on removing the blocks
  9. Random item on mining diamonds
  10. Able to set to disallow mining at light 0, to help in fullbright hackers
  11. SQL and flat file (H2) support!
  12. Using SQL you can also get a player's farmrate!
  13. Customizable messages!

    @Hvelver: Go

    First time running H2 will require a full server restart, I'm not sure if "/reload" will do.

    Hi again, I did what you said and when I type /fb config it now says SQL: H2 Database. But, when I type /fb farmrate (name) 1, it still says SQL is not loaded, ignoring command input :I

    @Hvelver: Go

    Do you have an SQL server running on the computer you run the server on?

    If not change this configuration:

    SQL_Enabled: true


    SQL_Enabled: H2

    It'll use H2 database instead.

    This is my config, I don't know where to find my logs in FoundBoxx :S I don't know if this helps, but when I type /fb queue, it says "This server is not using farmrates".

    Auto_Update_On_Plugin_Enable: true Notify_On_Updates: true Allow_Usage_Stats_Collection: false Survival_Only: true Use_Nickname: false Use_Permissions: false Messages: Found_Notification: '%ply found %amt %blk(s) (Visibility: %vis%)' Must_Have_Light_To_Mine: Interacting in the dark is dangerous!

    If this isn't what you're looking for, please tell me where I can find my logs when FoundBoxx starts :)

    @Hvelverino: Go

    SQL not loaded could mean a few things: 1) SQL is not configured properly (SQL_Enabled: true, with SQL credentials) 2) H2 is not configured properly (SQL_Enabled: H2) 3) There was a problem loading the SQL/H2 module

    Could you send the logs when FoundBoxx starts?

    Hi there, I'm using this plugin and I find it really necessary, because I think one of the players on my server is using x-ray. When I type in /fb farmrate (name) 1

    It doenst allow me, and it says [FoundBoxx] SQL is not loaded, ignoring command input. How can I fix this??

    I'm the owner of the server and I have every permission in-game

    Thanks in advance :)
