    LogBlock release are on DevBukkit:

    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)

    Thanks for the plugin, transferred over from Big Brother; love it.

    I've been trying to integrate the player kills into the stats page. Does anybody have a working script for this?
    Credit will be given on the page.

    Hey I'm having some trouble getting my logblock to enable. I was on vacation this week, and when I came back it seemed as if logblock had pooped its pants. When i do /pl "LogBlock" is in red but " LogBlock Questioneer" is showing as loaded fine. Not sure if the update to 1060 may have caused this or not. Using bukkit 1060 and newest version of logblock. Here are the errors in order as they appear. (spaces between mean separate errors)

    Check if your MySQL server went down, and/or restart it.
    If it's only about 2k block you don't have to worry at all, if it's more:
    Install it. It should also start the MySQL config wizard, you can leave all at default, besides enabling TCP connections. You user will be "root" with the password you'll enter there.

    I installed it but, remember this is the Mac version not the Windows version. So there is no Wizard or Set up.
  21. Offline


    I tried it on another server (mysql access) and i can connect to it fine. So perhaps it is an error with another plugin? I even installed the latest dev build of Spout onto the server and reinstalled logblock but still no luck. Those errors keep showing up.

    Cb1063 + LB 1.25 + Latest Dev Spout:
    When putting/taking Lapis Lazuli into/from a chest, it gets logged as ink sack.

    Also, how do i filter a chest log for a specific block, ie glowstone?
