    Important Crap

    I'm done, but BB isn't.
    I've got 10 developers on the contributors' list who supposedly want to help, but I haven't heard a word from them since the day I added them. BigBrother's so full of bugs now that I don't know where to start, and I simply don't have the time or patience to work on it anymore. If you want something that works, pick up LogBlock. I'm fucking done. I updated it to "run" on 1060, but that's as far as I'm taking this. If you still want to help, email me at [email protected] and give me a rundown of your experience in coding plugins so I know you'll do something.​
    UPDATE: 3 developers have been added to the repo, but I'm waiting for them to get familiarized and start committing before I declare this crisis over. I appreciate the support and help that has been thrown this way. If you'd still like to help, but don't know how to code, there are many other ways to contribute. See the Contributors section for more info.​

    BigBrother is a powerful plugin that enables you to investigate roll back griefing via a large and all-knowing database. You have a choice between using immensely powerful commands to search an area for changes, or you can whack a block with a stick or place a log to see changes within a single block.

    • /bb log - Gives you the BigBrother Multipurpose Tool, or a simple log. Hit something with it to see changes in that spot, and place it if the block you're check is non-solid, like water, lava or air.
    • /bb done - Removes the log from your inventory, and gives you back any items it replaced.
    • Want to check an entire area? Use /bb here to list who changed what!
    • Need to roll back EvilGuy and DoucheBug's edits? Use /bb rollback EvilGuy DoucheBug!
      • Have to roll back edits up to 5 minutes ago? Simple! /bb rollback t:5m
      • Need to only roll back within a certain radius? /bb rollback r:<radius-in-blocks>
      • Roll back specific actions with /bb rollback a:10,BLOCK_PLACE
    • If you screw up, /bb undo
    • (NEW) /bb history "Suspicious Guy" to see that player's recent history! (add pg:# to go to page #)
    • Mow your lawn with /bb mowlawn!
    See the full list of commands and Permissions nodes here.


    [​IMG](Yes, stationary_* and regular blocks got reversed, this is fixed.)​

    Need Help?

    • What version of CraftBukkit and BigBrother? If you don't know, type /version and /bb version.
    • What database engine are you using? Look at the value for database.type in BigBrother.yml. I use MySQL on my server and test on H2.
    • Do you get any errors? If so, please link to a pastebin with your server.log
    • What steps do I have to take to reproduce this behavior?
    • What other plugins are you using?
    Known Issues
    • Everything listed here
    • ItemCraft is not supported due to it sending unexpected NULLs via Block.getType(). Can be fixed by adding a new enum value for unknown blocks.
    • Bugs everywhere, stopped counting.
    Coming Soon
    • /bb history - Gets the history of a player
    • Fixed /bb update
    • Updated API
    • Externally accessible API
    • Custom Action IDs (for WorldEdit support, etc.)

    i made a big mistake, my server isn't quite powerful enough to run two worlds so i told my server to remake a new one with nether so my users could spend some time getting netherrack and what not. I didn't realize that in that situation big brother didn't see the nether version as a different world is there anyway to delete a hours worth of data from the database? so i can restore areas without having random chunks of netherrack in random places.

    thanx in advance for any help anyone can offer me.

    BigBrother -IS- multi-world aware. It stores the data in the same database, but it knows what belongs to what world.

    Hey, I am sure you have lots on our hands atm but here is a little request for BigBrother, I was thinking you and the sk89q (WorldEdit Maker) could make BB so it can rollback WorldEdits commands, like If someone did a WorldEdit command that changed dirt to stone and you wanted to get rid of what he did, you would simply roll him back and It would go back to the way it was. Now I know you would have to discuss this with him and it would take a while to sort everything out. I'm in no hurry, and for all I know sk89q might not even want to do this. So please consider this and I hope to hear a reply! Thanks! :)

    I've been getting this issue when I try to run big brother on my server, I haven't had any problems with it before and it just recently started acting up.
    The following is everything in my server log dealing with bb, any help would be nice =]
    I can use most commands /bb stick 1, /bb here, /bb rollback
    It's telling me: "No edits on this block" whenever I try.
    I'm using CB 740

    [740] + [381] + [mysql] [myisam] Working great!
    Very happy to see you rolled that change back
    Working very well and doing what its supposed to :)

    According to the server log, the tables (2) has been created.
    Although I can't seem to find these in the actual database. But the commands works fine ingame, atleast the stick, as that's the only thing I've tried so far.
    Anyway, I also downloaded the PHP pages, and went into the actions folder, and clicked one of them. It's just a white page. Is this because my database doesn't have any tables in it, or is it because I downloaded something wrong?

    As I know PHP quite well, and it seems to me like it's more of something which is in progress.

    I'm trying to setup the logging function of BB, but I am completely lost. Anyone willing to help walk me through this?
  16. Offline


    I'm lost my self. I don't know how to install MySQL, whats worse is that my VPS is MADE for running MineCraft and I can't access terminal, only their shitty Admin Control Panel.

    Someone should make a tutorial for noobs (I might if I ever get this darned thing figured out) because this is an AMAZING plugin, and I really want to log stuff. Even without the logging and just the commands, this plugin has helped my server quite a lot.

    Can you explain how to read chest changes

    true that. I would LOVE it.

    here is a bit more info on what i did that triggered the problem.
    i use MCmyAdmin to handle my server. i told it to shutdown everything went into the options and flipped on the nether world option and restarted the minecraft server. 5 users messed around in the spawn area and after an hour i reversed the process. i didn't change any names or nothing and since both the normal and the nether worlds were under the same name in the file. when i did a rollback the server plopped nether rack in somewhat random places. i now know how to prevent this from happening again but for now if i can figure out how to purge the nether world version (the one hour i mentioned before) from the database

    uh you sure you didnt just turn off saves with save-off or something? sounds more like you world changes just are never getting written to disk

    what a horrible post
    in such an amazing plugins thread
    works perfectly fine for me.

    Is there any way to make BigBrother also log modifications made via WorldEdit/Superpickaxe? Currently it is not logging those.
  26. Offline


    I've been hearing a lot about this, so I'm gonna go ahead and start working on a plugin framework for stuff like this.

    BigBrother Recommended Build #385

    Okay, there's actually two kinds of DELTA_CHEST changes. The new one is prefixed with a "{". That's what I'll describe.

    The structure is as follows.
        // {SLOT:ID:[+|-]COUNT:DATA:DAMAGE[;...]
        // 0:1:15:20:0;  -> Slot 0 replaced with 15 stone with data=20 and full durability
        // + = Added stuff
        // - = Removed stuff
        // no symbol = Replaced a slot

    it worked perfectly for me too, but then all of the sudden it just started rolling back every change made every time i restarted my server. idk what caused it but it did. dont get me wrong i love BB its a great tool, but i cant have it rolling back everything.

    i didnt mess with any settings when it started, it just started randomly doing it for no reason at all

    That's not BB, that's lag. Latency causes blocks to "pop" in and out of existence. BB tells you when it rolls stuff back ;)
  31. Offline


    well it stopped once i removed BB so it is BB either that or some sort of conflict it has with another plugin for some reason, idk either way it stopeed
    [EDIT] the blocks didnt re-appear as soon as they were mined, only when i restarted the server.
