    Okay... I've looked on different forums and did some searching, but was unable to find out if there is a way to stop xray alltogether. I thought orebfuscator was good enough but apparently a group referred to as "team havoc" can easily get around it. They kept sending new ppl as soon as i banned 1. I saw 1 guy use xray and dig up iron (I was secretly watching from the sky) I also have new players join too...
    I decided to shut down the server until I can find out a way to stop this. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    My favorite is X-ray Informer. Also, download VanishPacket! It allows you to appear offline and become invisible!

    Download Orebfuscator and make sure it's set to engine mode 2. It will turn all non-ore blocks in your world to ore. The only way to get around this is to take the map seed, make a world in single player with the same seed, and use xray there to find the location of ores. I bet this is what those hackers did to you. HOWEVER Orebfuscator now includes ChunkScrambler, which uses a different seed to generate ores instead of the seed that is used to generate the rest of the world. This will, of course, only benefit you on newly generated chunks so the single-player seed trick can still be used in parts of your world that were generated by an old version of Minecraft (1.8 and below) or before you installed Orebfuscator with ChunkScrambler.

    If you want to completely stop xray:
    1) Delete your world
    2) Install Orebfuscator and make sure ChunkScrambler is enabled (it's an option in the config) and that it's set to engine mode 2. (Engine mode 1 turns ores into stone but it doesn't hide ores in caves so it's not as effective.)
    3) Generate a new world

    I can't think of any way hackers could bypass this security. They might at some point, but for now this is the best you can do.

    Xray informer is good. The others are very resource intensive and doesn't work well on the vast majority of 1 - 1.5 gig servers out there running on limited resources.

    Xray informer works with the LogBlock database to tally player ore/stone breaks. And makes the info available to admins in a human readable form.

    It doesn't 100% prevent xray.. but It is a good way to find the abusers and get them off your server.

    You can also use worldguard to simply alert admins when players are breaking diamond and gold. Then just watch them and use the /xcheck

    Very true. Only use my method if you have a capable computer - Orebfuscator is very CPU intensive. :D
