    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)

    How to post error messages:

    I won't aswer questions to general MySQL setup/installation/what is MySQL (there are lots of good tutorials out there, use google)
    Please read the installation guide before asking a question about installation problems.
    Please read the FAQ before posting a error report. It may be solved there.
    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)
    When you post error messages, it's important to paste the whole stack trace!

    You may have to restart your server. (Larger) Plugins can act strange when updating without restart.

    "[LogBlock Consumer] Queue overloaded. Size:"
    Our world map is a bit big and we've adjusted the database for the x & z colomns & we've tried what the FAQs suggested but are still getting the same problem.

    Here's a snip of our config:
    delayBetweenRuns: 1
    forceToProcessAtLeast: 1000
    timePerRun: 1000
    useBukkitScheduler: true

    hen I run my server appears:

    [INFO] LogBlock disabled

    I tried to enable/load the plugin but I can't, PLEASE HELP!

    Then use INT instead of MEDIUMINT
    The reason for that comes a bit before. Look at your server.log.

    Guess you alredy redownloaded it?
    Have to make the wiki more clearly. Monsters includes players and animaly includes all.

    oh lol, thank you :)
    but they're logged into different fields?

    No, all goes to <table>-kills. It's only differentiable by the names.

    oh, too bad :(

    For what you'd need that?
  21. Offline


    just for statistic purposes...
    like "Y killed X Players, X Monsters, X Animals"
  22. Offline


    That's also possible, you only need to group by victim and check the playerids in lb-players to tell which of these are monsters or animals.

    Hi, can you disable the registration of such teams in the "lb-chat" as, "/login, /register, /l, /changepassword"?

    That not, but there are some changes planned.

    1. Most likely you didn't wait long enough (or used /lb savequeue)
    2. It does (until v1.10 and since v1.20)
    3. Your mysql user has no rights for DELETE:
    GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON <database> TO 'awstnur3_Shady'@'localhost';

    I found something strange for a certain player chestaccess but I cannot find its position(coordinate).
    How can I read a certain chestaccess's coordinate in the game?
