    Hi, I need to block "player.dat" from being generated/made

    as it's useless on my server. Is there a way to block it or remove it ?

    After like 1K people it starts to take a bit of space %_%.

    Easy doing (on linux):

    touch player.dat
    chmod 0444 player.dat
    chown root: player.dat

    (as root)

    Then the minecraft user couldnt change the file ;)
    On windows it is the same.
    But not chmod etc.
    There you must change the Security Settings and start the server with other user!

    Bubelbub, player.dat isn't 1 file, it's a folder with each player's name with .dat. He'll need to set permission on the players folder.

    Regardless, it's much easier to do so on a linux machine..

    What OS are you running the server on?

    Of course chests don't save in player dat files. Except maybe the ender chest.

    I don't think there is a way to block the creation of the files... is there?

    Like stated above you can always delete it... But don't do it while that player is online.... however a plugin can check for offline players, and delete the files. (not sure how that would effect the server while the player is offline. Don't think anything weird would happen...)

    When the player logs off, delete his file. Or on server start.
