I am sure that everyone knows how annoying x-ray hackers are.
Certainly, every server host wants their player to play “fair”.
Bukkit and Spigot have plugins against x-ray.
The plugin changes every covered block (so the ones the player can’t see) into something random and sends that information to the player. Since he only receives useless data, he can’t use his x-ray hack.
What I want:
An option in the configs of the server that allows me to toggle a new option called “X-Ray prevention”. (The default should be false, since this feature will cost some server resources)
How “X-Ray prevention” could work:
-Just as the solution the plugin provides. The server should send false information to the player for all the blocks that are not visible.
-Another approach would be that the server only changes not visible blocks, that can be specified in file, into stone. This might be easier for the server than changing every not visible block.
Write the ID of iron ore, diamond ore and lapis ore into a specific file. These blocks now will be replaced with stone until they can be seen by the player. (next to air, glass, fence, lava, water)
-The last idea of mine is to send only the information of the blocks that can be seen by the player.
I hope you will consider my idea for an upcoming Minecraft version.
By the way, I don’t want to use Spigot, because some mechanics are different on those servers.
(You can take mob spawning and redstone for instance)
