SOURCE CODE RELEASED AT https://github.com/derjasper/PhysicsDisabler
This is a tool to disable Minecrafts block updates, item- and creature spawning with a single command. It's useful for illegal block placements with WorldEdit or bad CraftBook-spawners, helps with most of buggy areas.
Just type disablephysics mode on and fix the issues with WorldEdit etc and re-enable physics with disablephysics mode off. For more details see "Usage" section.
The plugin does not affect the server performance, event-handlers will be unregistered after re-enabling block updates. So you do not have to uninstall it after use.
Simply copy the JCPhysicsDisabler.jar in your plugins folder.
The syntax has changed in version 1.1
Command syntax: /disablephysics [ mode [on|off|region] | addregion (regionname) (worldname) [(x)|(y)|(z) (x)|(y)|(z)] | removeregion (regionname) ]
