    Version: 1.50​

    LogBlock release are on DevBukkit:

    LogBlock dev builds:

    Please read the installation guide

    I won't port LogBlock myself to mcAPI. Source code is available, so it shouldn't be to difficult for someone else to do it, also I'm still here. so I can answer questions. If there is more than one willing, that's up to you to handle that.

    The reasons I take this step, are the usual: I quit playing Minecraft about 5 months ago and lastly I was struggling to keep up with updates. The developement of Guardian made slow progress, so I fear it won't be ready to fully replace LB in time.

    LogBlock logs block changes into a MySQL database. Block changes can be placed or destroyed block, explosions, burned blocks, sign text changes, chest access, leaves decay etc.
    It can be used as griefer identification tool, to find out who build a particular building, or even roll back changes by certain players. Other purposes can be e.g: Undoing of forest fires
    All additional features are optional, to keep the database as short as possible. All database actions run in their own threads to avoid server lags.
    The use of permissions plugin (or any clone) is possible, but not necessary.
    Uses Spout for chest logging (but it's fully optional, and there is no need for the client mod at all).

    • Logging for block placing, block braking, fire, explosions, leaves decay, signtexts, lava flow and chest content
    • Very mighty commands system, not only allowing to rollback and redo, but also to tp to blockchanges, delete log ingame etc. Full list of commands.
    • Many parameters for lookup/rollback/redo/tp/clearlog commands: Block changes of one ore more player, in a specific area, in a world edit selection, specific block types only, block changes older or newer that a specific date, destroyed/created block only, in a different world and combinations of all these parameters. Full list of parameters.
    • Rebuilding map after importing a backup (/lb redo)
    • Last parameter to use the parameters of the last command
    • Quick ingame lookup of block history a wood pickaxe or a bedrock block.
    • All commands accessible from console (exept tools :D)
    • Custom queries for tools.
    • Different tool modes (lookup, rollback, redo, writelogfile and clearlog)
    • Saves block data like wool color, log type, torch adjustment, etc
    • Multiworld and multiserver support (some servers sharing the same database)
    • BigBrother log import
    • Loggable super pickaxe plugin (not to confuse with WorldEdit's super pickaxe)
    • API
    • Webstats
    Why to use LogBlock:

    Example commands: (thanks to tha d0ctor, read more about commands here)

    /lb rollback player fire since 1d3h – rolls back fire 1 day 3 hours
    /lb rollback player fire since 1d3h area 15 – rolls back fire 1 day 3 hours within a radius of 15 blocks

    /lb rollback player thad0ctor since 1h - rolls back thad0ctor 1 hour
    /lb rollback player thad0ctor since 1d area 5 – rolls back thad0ctor actions for the last day within 5 blocks
    /lb rollback area 10 since 1h30m - rolls back all modifications within 10 blocks since the list 1 hours and 30 mins
    /lb rollback area 10 before 06.11.2011 - roll back all changes in an area of 1o before June 11th, 2011
    /lb rollback player thad0ctor since 05:36:00 - roll back all changes of thad0ctor since 05:36 (server time)

    Sorry about that, thanks.

    I am using Build 193 (Spout) and chest logging still does not work, your main post says 189+, correct?

    The message is a bit old now, I might remove that. The current spout version is something about #350. But some pople state to have problems with spout and MC 1.8

    First, you've got a syntax error in bChat config file.
    You didn't set the MySQL connection data for LB in config.
  7. Offline


    hey, the plugin works fine.. i only have 1 problem though: the time is something like 380 minutes off, so when i for example break a block, and want to rollback it, i need to type /lb rollback player playername since 400m and it works, it wont work with 5m or 1m. i'm using a non-local mysql server, could this be the source of the problem?
  8. Offline


    Yeah, it can take a bit until the blocks come to database.
    You can force that using /lb savequeue

    I'm having quite a bit of trouble with alot of [Consumer] Que Overloaded (or similiar) aswell as the permission nodes not really working, using bPermissions.
    /lb toolblock basically just give a "You aren't allowed to do this".

    Using the latest dev. builds for all of it, Spout, LB & Bukkit - is that what's causing it?

    1.7.3 server does give a lot of Overloaded messages, but the permission problem seems to have vanished.

    If you are using a build with dynamic tools (#19+) you need to add permissions nodes for and, and perhaps remove the legacy tool entries from the lookup: section of your config.yml.

    Adjust your consumer settings, so it gets processed faster:

    @DiddiZ why does logblock actually need spout to run?

    Searching for the word spout in the op was too hard? :D

    Chest logging, and no, no client mod needed.

    is there a way to NOT use spout? or prevent it from downloading?

    omg, what is wrong with this plugin!?

    I updated and suddenly it began to download Spout which is incompatible atm and which I dont use...Srsly.. I had a talk with the spout dev lead about it and he said that they dont want any plugin to auto download spout....Please fix this...Also - Isnt it possible to use it without spout?

    Yeah I tried this however it didn't seem to be enabled to log chests. I've removed LogBlock and it still continues to download it so it shouldn't be this plugin. Any ideas what other plugin auto-downloads? Thanks!

    k, ill try that and sorry for the long post, i would put it in a collapseable menu if i knew how to.

    it is still getting errors, and this time i was able to get it into pastebin!
