    Now I know it may seem stupid posting this in plain sight of potential griefers, but the majority are too dumb to look through the site, let alone scour the forums just for this thread! I know of a few small anti-griefer defences that I have either found through YouTube or worked out myself whilst hanging around with aVo and playing with Reliant. If you have any tips or tricks to add, feel free to add them here!

    Template for Anti-Griefer Defence – Optional. Use preview to work out if you’re using it correctly

    Name of Defence
    
    • (Video/screenshots/link here)
    • (Materials needed for defence)
      1. Instructions here
    • List here
    [*]

    1. Redstoneless Pit-Trap
    [spoiler:16elbhir]

    • Source:
      [youtube:16elbhir]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UOIk5y6oZI[/youtube:16elbhir]
    • Materials: (See Video)
    • Instructions: (See Video)
    • Pros:

      • Easy and cheap to set up
      • Requires no circuit knowledge
      • Undetectable with almost any hack
      • Can be made to any size

  • Cons:

    • Slower than Redstone
    • Needs to be hidden amongst sand/gravel
    • Hacks/Texture packs that detect torches may alert more cautious griefers
  • [/spoiler:16elbhir]

    2. Silverfish Army
    [spoiler:16elbhir]

    • Source: None
    • Materials:
      • Silverfish (Any number will do, but at least 6 is ideal)
      • cobblestone/smoothstone/stone brick (At least one per silverfish)
      • OPTIONAL: Silverfish Block (If you have this, you don't need anything else)
    • Instructions:
      1. Simply build house using silverfish stone/stone materials
      2. (If manually adding silverfish) Spawn silverfish and move away from their sight range. Eventually they should bury themselves into the nearest stone-related block
    • Pros:

      • Undetectable with almost every hack
      • A major annoyance to the unprepared griefer
      • Silverfish in large numbers can easily take down a player
      • Dying from a silverfish attack is highly unlikely as they are so rare. Therefore, mods can use the message to detect potential griefers.

  • Cons:

    • Difficult to move/edit a rigged house
    • Can only obtain Silverfish blocks/mobs through moderator+ (As far as I know)
    • Smaller numbers of silverfish can be easily taken down by an armoured player with a sword
    • Silverfish attack everyone – griefer or otherwise
    • Limits material options for a house
    • Will not prevent griefing, only hinder it
  • [/spoiler:16elbhir]

    3. Chests disguised as blocks
    [spoiler:16elbhir]

    • Source: [youtube:16elbhir]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIvQaManiXs[/youtube:16elbhir]
    • Materials: (See Video)
    • Instructions: (See Video)
    • Pros:

      • Completely conceals chests
      • Undetectable with most hacks/Texture packs (Most won't detect Storage Minecarts)
      • Can be used with any block that can be moved by a piston

  • Cons:

    • Chest will be found if block is destroyed
    • Only single chests can be made this way
    • Requires a lot of resources (Pistons, redstone, iron, etc.)
    • Not an urgent need with chest protection plugins
  • [/spoiler:16elbhir]

I don’t see the point. We already have mods in place to mark up protected land, lock chests and wooden pickaxes to identify potential griefers. Only thing I can imagine being an issue is people using other’s resources like produce farms or xp grinders without permission.

Mods are incredibly busy, and not every house is protected. I’m also guessing that MCNSA isn’t the only server everyone plays on. But hey, I can always give out free griefing tips if you prefer 😛

I think an alternative is in order, and I’m curious 😛

But on a more serious note, these are amazing, thanks for sharing!

(still curious)

The chest thing is interesting… I only imagine its a matter of time before that glitch is fixed though…

Good info there. I like the one on forcing the storage minecart into the block. Fun stuff.
