    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)

    I think it's working like the BigBrother Plugin, but without so many features.
    Are there other differences?

    Anyway, I will try this plugin because the BigBrother Plugin don't want to work. :/

    Yes, meanwhile they are mostly the same.

    your bb import script is broken.

    Can anyone make a example for "/lb rollback [player] [name] [time] [minutes.....]" ?
    Please explain it too.
    Thanks ;)
  15. Offline


    Please post the error message in the server log. I can't do much without.

    In short: No.

    /lb rollback player diddiz 1 hour
    /lb rollback player linaks 5 minutes
    Should be self-explanatory.

    Nice to hear [​IMG].
    And when you now describe what the problem was, and how you dealt with it, later generations will also profit from your time [​IMG].

    Hello, i have a problem with logblock, it works, but my problem is that all groups can look into the blockhistory with the woodenpickaxe (with the lb commands i have no problems, that can only use the selected groups)
  21. Offline


    Hm, your are right. I missed the permissions check with the woodpickaxe. Thanks.
    Will be fixed with the next release.
  22. Offline


    yes the import table one works, and all other sql scripts, except your bb import.
  23. Offline


    Hm ... something action before locked the db and didn't remove the lock after finishing.
  24. Offline


    yea i can post it its a bit hard to explain ill do that later today, do u know any thing about setting up permissons 2.5(or what ever version it is now). think noob if you can answer it XD
  25. Offline


    I know, that you have to rename the config.yml to world.yml (or whatever the world is called). This was after v2.1, I think.
  26. Offline


    AWESOME PLUGIN! haha... the only thing i would like to see is a configuration to make it so it doesn't log some players actions... like admins or something... other than that awesome job

    *oh and on the query that you do to set up the tables i believe you have insert "lb-main%" for "%something% and i think it should just be "lb-main" without the %,, but i could be wrong

  27. Offline


    I wouldn't advise this, and I find it also helpfull to quick find out who build something, admin or not :D

    Oh, yes, my bad. I'll fix this. It's supposed to be without the odd '%'.
  28. Offline


    ahh, thanks :) can you say about when its released ?
  29. Offline


    Maybe today or at least tomorrow. Im working on "/lb rollback cuboid". Rollback area is sometimes a bit inaccurate.

    ah thanks :) when it is finished before Saturday I am really happy :D
