Discussion in 'Inactive/Unsupported Plugins' started by Gandalf, Feb 27, 2011.

    GriefAlertr reports and logs when certain blocks are destroyed, interacted with or used. To do this it takes a list of what to monitor (config.txt) and then decides if it should log the action, alert the user and/or moderator, or stop the action from happening in the first place. It also features a grief stick to remove hard to break blocks such as obsidian. It is highly customizable and configurable with a multitude of different options such as color coded messages, custom alerts, five different checking hooks, and permissions to restrict or allow access to its different functionalities.

    Features (open)
    • - Low memory footprint
    • - Supports both Group Manager and Permissions
    • - Item restriction based on any customizable actions such as placement, breaking, use, etc.
    • - Logging with both flat-files and native MySQL support
      • External text file logging, log files will be automatically generated and cataloged by date to improve their organization.
      • MySQL logging, all the features of text file logging but with MySQL support for both local and remote databases.
    • - In-game alerts
      • - Configurable moderator and user in-game alerts with customizable colors.
      • - Can be activated on stealth mode so no alerts are shown.

    • - Set users or groups to not trigger GriefAlerts (such as staff, or even VIP)

    Installation (open)

    Copy all the files over to your plugins folder. Then configure the config.txt located inside the GriefAlertR folder. The log file will be automatically generated once the plugin is loaded.You will need to setup permissions before this plugin works, you either need Group Manager plugin(get it here) or Permissions plugin(get it here).

    The permissions nodes are:
    • griefalertr.view [Shows the alerts to players with this permission.]
    • griefalertr.ignore [Players with this permission won't trigger alerts.]
    • griefalertr.use [Players with this permission will be able to use restricted items.]
    • griefalertr.stick [Players with this will be able to use the /gastick command.]
    • /gastick
      • - Requires the griefalertr.stick permission.
      • - Enables and disables a grief stick remover which removes any and all clicked blocks in one fell swoop.
        • - Useful for removing Obsidian and other hard to remove items.

    History (open)
    GriefAlert was a fantastic plugin originally created by Relliktsohg, however after a while he abandoned the project(hMod topic). A fellow Bukkit developer, djdclarke(Bukkit topic), picked up the project soon after and improved on its design. Now Development has been passed to me by djdclarke and this legendary plugin is in my hands. I have vastly improved on both Relliktsohg and djdclarke's code and with the help of darknesschaos made this plugin. None of this would have been possible without any of their contributions!

    config still confuses me :(

    So if i wanted to track glass i'd do

    {20,Glass,OnBreak,0(for alerting player),1(for message),1(so mods don't get tracked),b(for color)}

    Is that the right way without the stuff in the parenthesees.

    But doesn't the mods not getting tracked thing stop with greifalertr.ignore?
  8. Offline


    I am currently revamping my configuration because it is so confusing, for the time being, please let me explain better.

    You are missing the block color for the parenthesis right now, you only have user color selected. This will cause your clients to crash.

    Regarding the moderator issue, the griefalertr.ignore(make sure you spell it right!) is simply to designate which players should not be tracked. You have to turn on or off people being exempted per each block. That way it is much more configurable, as each block can be set up in different ways.

    {20,Glass,OnBreak,0,1,1,b,(need another color here)}

    Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions.

    Ok, i got a question, is the second 0 (20,Glass,0(warn player),0(This one) act like stealth mode?

    Like greifalertr normally?
  12. Offline


    Yes, having, {20,Glass,0,0,0,color,color}, will make it act like in stealth code.

    Moo Master

    Ohhhh, confusing but its starting to make sense. and does it ignore # signs?
  14. Offline


    Yes, the # signs are used to denote comments.

    aah, it might make grouping different things such as ores and glass and minecarts. Still once again Thank you for porting.

    @ShaDooM because I thought Gandalfs was an improvement over mine - no point wasting time on two versions of the same script being in creation at the same time! I am working on future plugins :)

    Is there plans for MySQL support like GriefAlert originally had?

    How do i actually make it log lighters as well (confused about the name, lighter/flintandsteel)? Config sample for lighter onuse would be much appreciated!
  23. Offline


    MySQL support is planned in the next version(ETA this weekend if there are no problems), also regarding your request, here is a config, change the options as you want.

    Please feel free to ask any more questions.

            id: '259'
            name: 'Flint and Steel'
            action: 'onUse'
            restricted: 'false'
            user-message: 'true'
            mod-message: 'true'
            mod-exemption: 'false'
            user-color: 'b'
            block-color: 'c'
    Thanks for being so classy man!
