    Suggested name: NoDownload

    What I want: I'm looking for a plugin that will stop people's World Downloader mod from working on my server. If you do not know what the mod is, find info here. I have no knowledge of coding plugins, so I do not know if it's possible to counter this client-side mod but I have seen servers that block it completely, but I have no idea how.

    Ideas for commands: No commands needed for this plugin.

    Ideas for permissions: No Permissions Needed

    When I'd like it by: ASAP

    Thanks a lot for reading, I hope you can carry out my request!

    I know, that's the conclusion I came to. But I've seen servers that completely block it so I know there's definitely a way to stop it completely. Thanks for the reply

    An example of such a server may be useful to be honest. I see people claim that certain servers have done an impossible thing all the time, so a simple "I've seen servers do this" isn't particularly useful :p

    It was either MinePlex, World of Keralis or Ravand.. Apologies I can't be any clearer, I can't remember.

    Well you can use http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/orebfuscator/ and set it to send clients redstone and tnt blocks, so when it downloads the world, it puts redstone and tnt blocks, and so it instantly blows up their world, causing the world downloaded to be ruined. (and crashing the client). It kinda works.

    Yes, I've been told about this. However people can easily open it in MCEdit and change/remove etc. I need something that'd stop them even getting a file.

    That is not possible. WorldDownloader runs client side, so you have failed already when they get a single chunk loaded.
    Unless it listens to a plugin message what would be very weird as that is very easy to bypass.

    I'm aware it's client sided, although I appreciate what you've pointed out. I worded my previous reply wrong, sorry. I just need something that stops them getting our file, not using orebfuscator.

    You could try:
    1. Asking the author to have a server-way to disable
    2. dmca people who steal it? (i have no clue if you can)
    3. Randomized coords maybe the mod takes your coords for something (guessing not)

    We can file a court case/DMCA, or at least I believe so. I just wondered if there's any way to stop it. I know it's hard because it's client side, but I do wonder if there's a way. If not, thanks for the alternatives :)
