FoundBoxx - Ore Finds Announcer (anti-cheat, xray, fullbright)


Multi-threaded optimizations! Flat file (H2) support!

Custom messages and blocks support!

Stats collection: MCStats Lite is included in the latest versions and will just be collecting really basic information (your server's IP address, and other private information will not be collected) about your server. The collection will be used for the public's (mainly mine) knowledge on the popularity of the plugin, you may choose to opt-out in the configurations by changing the "Allow_Usage_Stats_Collection" option to false. For more information please head to http://mcstats.org/learn-more/


Continuation of FoundDiamonds from scratch (Yes, even the MySQL, but 10% of it is from a tutorial). Announces ore finds. Easy to configure. Extra features


  1. Announcing findings of the different ore by players
  2. Able to set to use permissions (Look below)
  3. Able to configure which ore to announce
  4. Announces number of the same ore nearby
  5. Announces light level (in percentage, for fullbright hackers)
  6. Able to set only survival players to then announce
  7. Saves all nearby ores into a list to prevent players from getting it announced again after 30 seconds unlike FoundDiamonds
  8. List will be cleared on server restarts or entries removed on removing the blocks
  9. Random item on mining diamonds
  10. Able to set to disallow mining at light 0, to help in fullbright hackers
  11. SQL and flat file (H2) support!
  12. Using SQL you can also get a player's farmrate!
  13. Customizable messages!
