    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'm not getting the new Compact chest changes: (+Added)(=Replaced)(-Removed)
    It is only telling me that "player" changed chest CHEST
    Any ideas?
  3. Offline


    When people don't make any changes to the chest contents, then the entry in the logs will be empty but still mention a change.
  4. Offline


    I had someone take Iron out and tested, used /bb stick 1 right away and I didn't get the message saying he took anything.
  5. Offline


    Oh well yes, unless it changed, the stick-log ingame will not actually show the changes. The DB and (optional) text log will have that though.
  6. Offline


    Ok I'll have to check it out, the screen shot made is seem like you see it in game. Thanks for the help.
  7. Offline



    because I have the rule, that a User has to repair the damage if he lets a creeper xplode,
    so I could check which user caused the damage ;)
  8. is there any way to restrict which worlds BB watches? I have a ffa, grief-enabled world that i dont need watched, and its rather large... but i also have a world that is grief restricted, and i need BB to watch almost everything...

    Can i tell BB to only watch specified worlds?

    Thanks :)

    That would be awesome if that worked, but I don't think there is an option to do that. I might be wrong. But, you can just have people grief it, then not use the /bb rollback command

    Its good, but it needs work. This I mean by its a little over the edge. Only say they placed a TNT block or Lava. or broke TNT or lava, not every single block they place and destroy.
  11. I'm just thinking about when there are a lot of people on, and resource-management wise...

    I've got 3 worlds that are not grief-protected. They are each 6000x6000.

    I have 1-2 worlds that i need bb to watch, and they are only 300x300 (about). (sort of like team-build servers, as build competitions for people who dont want to take part in the pvp-griefing competition servers).

    Its a waste of DB space to watch 3 worlds with so much area, and so many edits, when i just need a small area to watch.
  12. The fire events thing does that apply to tnt because I blew up tnt thinking it would work and I did /bb rollback Asianchickenisha r:10 and it said sucessful however the hole was still there.
  13. Offline


    So someone broke some diamond blocks and I click the block next to it and said no edits. So then I put sandstone in the place of the diamond that broke and click and it only said I edited it.... Why isnt it telling me who broke it?

    Is there a way to keep it from clearing logs?

    Error unzipping: File 'BigBrother.jar' is not allowed.

    TCadmin wouldn't let me upload it so I tried zipping it up and it gave me this error. What's wrong?
  16. Is there any way to make the records on h2 last longer because my MySQL doesn't seem to want to work for me. Also, can you make it so you can see what items were taken from the chest like in LogBlock, because I run a survival server and people are always stealing. Thanks :)

    Can anyone tell me why this is happening?

    is it support WorldEdit?

    So, whats a "Griffer"? ;) (Title typo)

    Anyway, nothing is being logged. I can place a block and check it straight away and it says "no edits on this block"

    its kind of annoying.. it always worked before now suddenly doesn't work at all. I can't register on your site because it doesn't work (is it even allowed to request bug reports on a site other than here/github?) and suddenly we've had a tonne of griefing I can't chase up. I already posted once and didn't get a reply...

    Latest BB, CB 953, no errors in startup (checked server.log)

    I have a question- Power went out at my home server, so once my comp rebooted the world was corrupted. Not knowing what to do, and panicking because there was a bunch of people on before it went out, I simply replaced the world folder with another copypasted backup folder. Now, if bukkit closes like that, will bigbrother still be able to rollback and de-corrupt the world, for future problems? I dont want to replace the entire world folder again.

    I've been getting

    [WARNING] [BBROTHER] 'Help' isn't detected. No /help support

    I'm using the latest version of CraftBukkit and BigBrother 1.9.1
    It would be much appreciated if someone could help with this.

    Try using this utility instead. I don't think corruption is tracked in BB.

    Hey, every once and a while I get this:
    [INFO] [BBROTHER] Removed 0 old records because of age in 0h00m00s.

    I want it so it deletes ALL records after 7 days.. How can I configure this?
  25. Offline


    so, is what your saying is no entire-world saves are done, rollbacks just reverse individual blockplaces/breaks? What I was asking IF entire worldsaves are done, then could it still remember those after a bukkit shutdown?

    well um many people had said the same but it seems that none has a fine solution. Please dont tell me it works fine for you or that it have been solve before, cause i couldn't find the answer.
