    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)

    Hm, forgot to add tool and toolblock to the help.
    LB seems to behave like in non permissions mode. Are you op?

    Added myself to Ops file and it works :p thank you :D

    What does enabling bukkit scheduler do? Will setting it false cause the queue to go away?
  6. Offline


    Sometime the bukkit schedular doesn't work. When you disable the bukkitscheduler, a normal timer will be used instead.
  7. Offline


    What does the scheduler even do?
  8. Offline


    Provides an easy to use timer for snyc ans async tasks.

    Correct, I'm using a remote MySQL server. I'll try updating, but I don't understand the local-only comment; In my mind, forcing a local mysql server defeats 80% of the purpose of having a plugin use mysql in the first place, forcing me to move offloaded IO and ram usage right back to the server I moved it off of.

    Also, I can't find 0.16 to download. Was it intended to be released yet?

    I should also note that a restart fixes logblock for several minutes. Perhaps you could detect this error and do whatever you do to start logblock again?

    I am having the same problem where only players in ops.txt can use the commands. This won't work for me because I don't use the ops.txt and have everything setup through permissions. Is this a bug or is there something I need to change?
  11. Offline


    v0.16 is a future version :D
    Restarts fix it? Interesting, cause I'm closing all connection at disabling LB. That gives me a clue, thanks. For now, it looks like a connection returned to the pool holds the writelock. That's something I can work on.
    Hm, will check that, but it sounds like a permissions error. What version of permissions are you using?
  12. Would it be possible to detect paintings aswell? Currently all my paintings seem to either get stolen or moved around.. im starting to think its some great conspiracy thing my users are up to.
  13. Offline


    Restarts fix it, but only for a few minutes.

    This is a new problem - 0.15 has been working fine for a very long time, and just yesterday it started borking up royally.

    I'm quite willing to run debug code on my server if it'll help you. We really depend on logblock.

    So if I set the delayBetweenRuns: to 1, the queue should overload less?

    Released v0.15b

    Most likely fixed writelock issue. Forgot a commit in player join event.
    Thanks to dirkson, you gave me the essential clue.

    Yup, and the other error should be fixed with o.15b.

    I'm still getting it. :(

    EDIT: Restarted server and there seems to be no more problems! Thanks for all your help. :D

    Quick bug: If someone griefs then it snows, causing a layer of snow on a block, the rollback does not get rid of the snow, thusly not fixing the grief.
  18. Offline


    Puh, you first shocked me :D
    Add snow to rollback.replaceAnyway. Will add snow also by default, thanks.

    any fixes in sight for the mysql connect issue?

    Interresting, forgot to test that. Will fix that, but until then, you only try to chum up with the idea to use a permissions plugin.

    essential feature request: make the latest activity to a block appear on the bottom, not the top. Thanks :D

    I added a message that show something like "[LogBlock] Connection to blablubb" at startup, what does it say?
    The new commands system will have an option for that.
