    Diamond rewards/Anti-Cheat
    Original concept by itsatacoshop247
    FoundDiamonds aims to improve the fun of mining by broadcasting when players find certain blocks (configurable) and give out rewards when players find diamonds! It comes bundled with anti-cheat features such as light-level monitoring to deter fullbright hackers and x-ray users from running amok. FoundDiamonds supports admin message functions, logging to file, and even trap blocks that can kick or ban a user if broken. Check out the video below if this sounds like something you'd be interested in.

    (An older version, but the concept is the same)

    Old Outdated Changelog:
    Show Spoiler

    Version 3.3.1-Beta

    * Fixed an old total block counting bug that I accidentally re-introduced.
    * Fixed a bug with admin messages firing on blocks players placed.
    * Fixed admin messages sending message to the person who broke the block.

    Version 3.3-Beta

    * Implemented versatile lists that can be edited to whatever blocks and colors you want!
    * Made fd log all player commands to the console, including failed command attempts (for this plugin only)
    * Fixed a terrible admin message bug that I never saw before. Revamped the way these works to prevent bugs.
    * Moved prefix to broadcast message as prefix@ instead of having a separate option for it in the config.
    * Fixed color bug when using nicknames in broadcast (now looks way better)
    * Fixed a bug with random items not even working
    * Added 3 new spells! :O
    * Made potion messages more descriptive, and even configurable.
    * Fixed bugs with menus and made other improvements to them.
    * Traps can now be set without using '_' characters, and just spaces (/fd trap gold ore)
    * Refactored tons of code. The source code is actually not so much of a mess anymore. Performance improvements as well.
    * Improved block counting! Diagonal blocks no longer fool the plugin!
    * Merged a pull request by snoepje0 who implemented a depth option for trap blocks. (Thanks again)
    Version 3.2.7

    * Removed an old pointless option from config.
    * Cancelled block break event on trap breaks.
    * Fixed exploit using traps to get diamonds by stopping trap blocks from dropping anything.
    * Fixed a few minor bugs with light level admin messages
    * Added light level logging to file.
    * Added permission 'fd.ignorelightlevel' to completely ignore a player's light level when mining. Not included in fd.*!
    * Improved logging a lot.
    * Renamed logs.txt to log.txt. Why was it plural?
    * Added a few more debug messages
    * Made CleanLog.txt lowercase for lazy linux users like myself :p

    Version 3.2.6

    * Added some debugging info for admin messages.
    * Added lightlevel as a configurable percentage
    * Removed coal ore from light level monitoring (Reason: It denies noobs trying to mine coal with no torches yet. Irony fail. Also the chance of someone cheating for only coal ore is unlikely.)
    * Added lightlevel admin messages and debug
    * Fixed potential bug with trap blocks being set in the void or above max world height.
    * Improved trap block logging quite a bit. Added world, improved readability.
    * Did some testing for weird trap block situations to ensure they would function.

    Version 3.2.5

    * Fixed multi-world spell issue.

    Version 3.2.4
    • Added debug mode. To enable do /fd toggle debug. Outputs information to the console about why broadcasts are canceled.
    Version 3.2.3

    * Made **adding** worlds case sensitive! This will prevent confusion in the future and allow 'World' and 'world' to coexist in the config.
    * Fixed ANOTHER multi-world issue DX I tested it this time!
    * Added a new config option under Logging: Trap Breaks. Defaults to true. Not sure why I had diamonds and trap breaks under the same configuration option. Chances are that even if you don't log ALL diamond ore breaks - you definitely want to know if someone breaks a trap!

    Version 3.2.2

    * Fixed bug where we weren't respecting the world list for spells and announcements from other worlds.
    * Attempted fix for world issue for some.
    * Cleaned up certain areas of code that were sorta messy.

    Version 3.2.1

    * Removed a debug message

    Version 3.2

    That's very good to know :)

    Then it might evolve to max-stats and such "PReP Has Found: xxx diamonds thus far", either in the plugin or scripted outside for our server later, by counting lines with outside tools. :)

    Keep up the nice work!

    Is PEX completely up to date?

    Or are you seeing any errors while running only FD?

    its working now after i done server restart reload is insufficient

    Ah, so that was the culprit. Strange...I wouldn't have guessed.

    Thanks for reporting that back. I'll keep that in mind if anyone else has similar issues.

    I noticed in the changelog that is says its compatible with bPermissions, but is this confirmed? I attempted to use it on my server, and although I can use the /fb config commands, nothing happens when a block is broken. Below is my config:

    Found Diamonds Configuration:
    Disable in creative mode: true
    Disable ore mining in total darkness: true
    Give OPs all permissions: false
    Kick players on trap break: true
    Ban players on trap break: false
    Admin alerts on all trap breaks: true
    Kick message: You broke a FoundDiamonds trap block.
    Random items for finding diamonds: false
    Percent of time awards are given: 25
    Random Item 1: 265
    Random Item 2: 263
    Random Item 3: 341
    Random spells for finding diamonds: true
    Spell strength (1-5): 5
    Percent of time spells are casted: 25
    Diamond Ore: true
    Gold Ore: true
    Lapis Ore: true
    Redstone Ore: true
    Iron Ore: true
    Coal Ore: true
    Mossy Cobblestone: true
    Obsidian: true
    Message: '@Player@ found @Number@ @BlockName@'
    Use player nicknames: false
    Log all diamond ore breaks: true
    Enabled Worlds:
    - world
    Admin Messages:
    Diamond Ore: true
    Gold Ore: true
    Lapis Ore: true
    Iron Ore: true

    In my bPermissions file, I have - fd.* for admin (myself) and fd.messages for everyone else. There are no messages when an ore is found, nor are there any random items given out. I've tested it with admins and regular users. Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

    PS - when I do a world list, it comes up with this:

    - world
    - world
    - world

    Three are listed, although I only have one running. Its not the same name as my world, but I'm assuming that this is just the default?

    Please ignore that posting... I didn't see the previous posting about having to reload the whole server instead of the config.

    Also, the - world setting had to be changed to my world name.

    I can confirm that FD works on bPermissions :)

    Yeah the multi-world setup is a bit half-assed right now...The next version will have full support and fixes for some of these common bugs.
  9. Offline


    Everyone who's had issues with multi-world - Please update and try the new /fd world menu!

    Managing enabled worlds should no longer be an issue!

    • Implemented a "Clean Log" option to log ALL announcements cleanly to a text log file.
    Edit: you want time stamps?

    Does it work with pex, so I can choose which ranks see the messages?
  11. Offline


    It works with pex, but there's currently no permission to choose who sees the broadcasts.

    Right now everyone sees them. (unless they're admin messages...)
  12. Offline


    Only the highest rank can see them then?
  13. Offline


    Well anyone with the permission fd.messages
  14. Offline


    Well, any more options to what to have in the output off the console/server-log would be nice,
    but mostly it is the color-codes that makes it off.
    Though this is because i take all the found ores-messages directly from the server.log, so
    of course they have the colour-codes.

    You can see what i mean here:, <---
    on the website i run for our server.
    Check the "Found Ores" link on the menu to the left :)

    Maybe if the separate clean log, could be made that logged all the ore-breaks in a way that can be configured, like "Log-Colour codes: true/false, Log-Time Stamps: true/false" and so on : )

    Another neat thing would be that totals summary, like "Number of coal mined by PlayerX: 222" and so, which makes it possible to have some sort of fun ranking on a webpage :)

    ! --> Oh, a new version, will check out the new clean log setting :)

    The cleanlog looks nice thus far, good work :)

    And yeah, atleast a date-setting would be nice for the cleanlog, to create history :)

    I was actually talking about implementing something like that, until someone mentioned to me that the minecraft client actually logs all of those statistics anyway...which kinda put the idea to a halt. Maybe if there were a way I could pull those stats....and put them into a list?? Hmm..

    Right, that shouldn't be a problem. Expect that in the next release :)
  16. Offline


    Yeah, the Achivement/stats thing has stuff like that, like the X number of blocks mined or whatever.
    I don't know wheter it is still just stored locally, or that stats get uploaded to the profile.

    But that one is probably not "clean text" to access at the moment.

    If you could pull stats from there - or just do another "stats.txt" file,
    in which you count from the stats that FD already logs itself when broadcasting (or from the cleanlog)
    that would be neat.

    Though, if i were less of a slacker i could do that counting myself from your cleanlog,
    in one of the bash-scripts i use to pull info to the homepage :)

    It seems like alot of people (Including me) had trouble because placed ores arent broadcasted xD
    I should have read before hand and my problem would have been solved sooner.
    Amazing plugin, keep up the good work :D
  18. Offline


    Yeah, it's a big problem. I need to make it more clear somehow...

    When I make the next release maybe I'll put some bold text stuff to save people the hassle.

    NiceJob man you did a good job and thx for the releases

    i changed everything to "true" but still when i type in commands it says 'unknown command'
  21. Offline


    Even if you have no permission at all, it still wouldn't say unknown command if you typed /fd or any other fd command.

    AFAIK, if this plugin is running - it would simply return nothing...not 'unknown command'.

    It is for craftbukkit! Just follow the link to bukkitdev, download it, and put it in your plugins folder :p

  25. Hi, when i use this plugin stuff keeps appearing in my server log, like DIRT STONE REDSTONE DIAMOND_ORE. I'm using the default settings. What do I need to change to true or false to get this nonsense to stop?
  26. Offline


    Update to the 3.2.1 (whenever bukkitdev approves's been 3 hours for crying out loud)

    That has been fixed.

    Ah, isValidWorld is null. I'm not even sure how you did that! You have certainly found a bug of some sort...

    Mind posting your config.yml? It appears as if my plugin wasn't able to find any worlds that it recognized for some odd reason. Assuming the name of your world is 'world', you could try doing '/fd world add world'. That should take care of the problem...although I'm still curious how that happened...

    Ok, let me go home and i'll post you my config.yml (seem correct and inspired from your file, no error while parsing it).

    I'll try your solution asap, do you think Multiverse could cause issue ? (multi world plugin managment)
