    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)

    In case of rollback or lookup problems: Type /lb savequeue and try again (when it's fixed then, it was a consumer problem, see FAQ)

    Did you guys even try a dev build?

    Where did you get fresh LogBlockQuestioner.jar from ?
  8. Offline


    Not using one. Only a few of us have rollback right now so it isn't much of a concern.
  9. Offline


    Actually what does LogBlockQuestioner.jar do and can't we run LogBlock without it ?
  10. Offline


    It gives you the /yes /no confirmation for rollbacks. It is optional.

    You can always '/lb redo player blah blah' if you mess up a rollback.
  11. Offline


    Oh. It's not a big deal then :D

    Update to latest dev, it's fixed there
  13. Working against bukkit 1.2 R0.1 2003 dev just fine with LB 108 dev.

    Any word on getting questioner updated?

    I just switched to bPermissions today and for some reason EVERYONE can use the log tool to check logs even if they don't have permission. This isn't THAT big of a problem but people are annoyed that they cant build with Logs (our loggingblock)
  15. You need to explicitly negate the permission

    Code (Text):
    1.     - ^logblock.tool.block
    for example.
  16. You need to manually set the settings to false in the plugin.yml inside the jar file or issue a false or negative value for each permission you dont want the groups to have default true lb permissions. IMO everything should always default to op only or false and force using permission nodes but thats me. Kind of silly seeing so many negative value permissions in my groups but oh well....

    Can someone update LogBlockQuestioner?
    nunber1_Master likes this.
  19. Ouch all that red text hurts. So does that mean logblock will die soon? Hate to switch to something else, hopefully wont have to as it seems to be working fine with 1.2.2 bukkit dev 2008 other then not having questioner.
  20. IDK, a development build was posted yesterday.

    I run a server that averages 40 - 60 players, and for a medium sized community, this plugin works great! It has saved my world from utter destruction multiple times already. Additionally, when the server rollbacks, I can use the /redo command to salvage some of the progress.

    My question is - will the new height limit of Minecraft 1.2 affect how LogBlock will work on our server? If so, will we have to reset all of our logs? When is the new build being released?

    EDIT: Scratch that, I just read the post. Now I'm going to go to a corner to cry.

    Was worried when I read that he won't update to mcsapi but great news that it's working with dev builds for 1.2.2 as this is really an essential part of my server and I wouldn't be able to have the server running without it.

    latest dev doesnt ask for clearlog, just clears log

    [oh wait, i need logblockquestioner....

    Thanks to turt2live
    That was a lookup, there is no way it could have rollbacked anything. But the error is odd, try with a higher limit.
  25. Offline


    The height limit won't affect anything, LB never used hardcoded 127 anywhere. The database column type is unsigned byte, so 255 will fit.
    Link to the dev builds is the second link in OP.

    Great. Well this isn't going well is it.

    These are great plugins and I have used it for a long long time and it's the best thing since sliced bread. Here is a problem I found, the bedrock tool doesn't work for me. Any idea?
  28. Well as long as bukkit doesnt make any major changes again then logblock should work perfectly for a long time without updates id assume :).

    Be nice if that Guardian project would kick off and combine all 3 good plugins into 1 but hey people have real lives and other hobbies i guess.
  29. If you guys need something for logging, try out LOG
    Same thing as this, other than it being just plain block logging.
