    So if we were to store all block data (x,y,z: stone), and have a plugin use the data base to reconstruct the world. Would it be slow and how big would the database be?

    If the server crashes the data would be saved. I'm just wondering about the optimization and size.

    this is not what MySQL is for (this is a really bad idea), so you should stop thinking about this idea, period.

    Never said I'm going to use it, I was just curious on the effects.

    just backup the world as normal, using MYSQL to store this info is incredibly ineffective and pointless.

    Well, the database would obviously be huge, I mean SQL Databases can hold A LOT but I think every block ever generated / placed in a world would be pushing the boundaries a little. Basically what would happen is exactly what breezeyboy said:
