    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)

    Would guess cpu overload ...

    Can it be that they don't bail out the game by the menu? So just closing MC with the "X" ?
    Happens alot with this person.

    For some reason some chest type items in an area get rolled back. People will loose their items and there will be no logs. If someone mined diamond and put it in a protected chest, the diamond ore will be back in their mine. Very odd, do you know what's wrong?
  6. Offline


    I have no idea, you use eighter: ChestLock or Lockette on your server ?
  7. Offline


    That too.
  8. Offline


    Thanks, I thought so. Can cause world's corruption, I believe.
  9. Offline


    That would be new to me. Would be a serious bug.
  10. Since BukkitContrib is broken and makes the whole server crash, there is no other way to log chests ?

    It's somewhere on the todo list :D

    I use LWC.

    Broken? I am getting BukketContrib updates in the "updates" folder and last one is "0.1.6" which I am running now. Whats with it?

    As in above, if players are shutting down the game by the "X", normally if you hit ESC, the work is saved, right? We had a world corruption before and seems to match up with those errors that I've posted. But you are smarter than me to know things :)
  14. Offline


    i got an idea..
    It would be great, if you can block the logging from a specific area.
    If player destroy the leaf @ spleef arena, the hole time will it logged.
    In the config I don't want to set 18 to non-logging.
  15. 0.1.6 is fine, but the autoupdate get the last version (0.1.7 and broke everything)
  16. Offline


    Would do an impact to performance, the best you can do atm is /lb clearlog area 123
  17. Hi, how do i use this line of the config:

    hiddenPlayers: []
    This way?

    hiddenPlayers: [player1, player2, player3]
  18. Offline


    hm. not so optimal i think...

    maybe an extra file in which you define the areas, like WorldGuard? Only define the min and max.

    I think that must be easy to implement this. LB only checks, if the destroyed block is in the area and log or not log the block...
  19. Offline


    Yes, but better use quotes:
    hiddenPlayers: ['player1', 'player2', 'player3']
    Especially when there are numbers in the name.
    That's excactly how regions work. But I don't think there is really much need for ...
    I better do per world config.
  20. Offline


    So yeah, I get this whenever I shut down/reload my server:

    I'm assuming it's a problem, seeing as it spams me in the console too, but what config values do I need to change/what do I change them to? I'm assuming I have to edit the consumer ones, but they're at the default and I don't want to screw something up..

    Would advise to double timePerRun

    Having an issue with rolling players back. Set rollback limit for 14 days, max blocks 2,147,483,647 and try to roll back a player 5 days and I get the warning "you are not allowed to rollback an area larger than 2,147,483,647"

    I am doing the command /lb rb player playername since 5 days

    I know that person did not modify THAT much :) So what could the issue be?
  23. Offline


    My fault, really. Worldwide is assumed to be infinitive, so 2,147,483,747 doesn't work.
    You've two options: Giving you logblock.ignoreRestrictions permissions or
    /lb rb player playername since 5 days area 99999999
  24. Offline


    I'm still confused. What does this error mean?
    [SEVERE] [LogBlock Consumer] SQL exception on INSERT INTO `lb-main` (date, playerid, replaced, type, data, x, y, z) VALUES (FROM_UNIXTIME(1311160934), 120, 83, 0, 8, '-63769', 51, '-652');:

    Ahhh I missed the permissions node, I guess I did not check the permissions changes when I upgraded :) I will add it and am sure it will work fine.

  27. Offline


    Ah yes it was! Thanks! I didn't think the FAQs would have that kind of information. Sorry about that :)

    I'm hoping this message means that it was successful when I ran the command?
    ALTER TABLE `lb-main` MODIFY x MEDIUMINT NOT NULL;# 168392 rows affected.
    ALTER TABLE `lb-main` MODIFY z MEDIUMINT NOT NULL;# 168393 rows affected.

    Yes, otherwise it would have displayed an error.

    The world names are case sensitive. Don't replace spaces with underscores (don't know whether you did, but I better say), and you've to use the relative path when the worlds aren't in the main folder.
