Blocks reset after a certain time

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for some advise on a plugin that I'm not sure exists. I am looking for something to keep track of blocks similar to Logblock, but a players changes to the world only persist for an adjustable amount of time (say 15~20 minutes) and then reset to there original state. It may be possible with some fancy scripting with the VariableTriggers plugin, but I figured I'd check if there was a plugin meant to do this specific thing.

    For some reason this sounds really cool to me. I would definitely do this with a dedicated plugin, and a database is the way to go when you are tracking a lot of block changes. I might consider this one.

    Now, would it only revert block place/destroys, or are you looking to handle more types of block changes?

    I was thinking of just resetting block place/destroys. The reason for my thinking was using in on some sort of treasure hunt map that systematically removes any traces of a player being there after a certain amount of time as to not give clues to other players. What other block changes can happen that would leave a trace, assuming tnt, fire, and mobs were disabled?

    Also, for simplicity's sake, would it be easier to just write something that hooks into logblock's API?

    In my opinion, no. The whole timer function would have to be written from scratch, and LogBlock is waaaay more complicated and feature-packed than this, hooking it probably wouldn't do a whole lot of good.

    Ah ok, I'm no java developer so I really have no clue lol.

    With that plugin, do you know if it will rollback placed blocks? I can't quite tell from the documentation.

    Not sure if that plugin does, haven't gotten close up and personal with it. I know there is a very very similar plugin that does areas places and broken regens.

    If mineralmanager doesn't search a bit for the other one.

    Fwiw, I am just completing a zone reset plugin that works on timers. Also resets entities, spawns, etc... Should have a release this week.
