    LWC is the longest-lived single block protection plugin, that protects both the blocks themselves and their contents. Originally designed in 2010 for locking chests (hence the name "Lightweight Chests"), it can be configured to lock any block. LWC Extended (or LWCX) is a fork of LWC which aims to provide extended updates and support for the plugin.


    LWCX supports CraftBukkit, Spigot, and Paper servers. Links to stable releases for specific versions of MineCraft can be found in the Version History tab. Recommended versions are as follows:

    MC 1.8.8-1.12.2: LWCX 1.9.7
    MC 1.13.0-1.15.2: LWCX 2.2.5

    Development builds of the plugin may also be found on various build servers, generously provided by the community. Updates are much smaller and more frequent, however they can be unstable or contain bugs. Intended for experienced server owners who are looking to help test new features. Use at your own risk.

    Help & Support

    First time using LWC? Fortunately, the plugin is easy to use. Simply download, drop it into your plugins folder, and restart your server -- blocks such as chests should now lock automatically when placed!

    Information on how to use and configure LWCX is available on our wiki.

    For additional support, either directly post in the discussion section here on Spigot, or join us on Discord! Generally questions asked on Discord will be answered much more quickly than on Spigot. DO NOT use the review section to ask for help. If you do so, you will most likely be ignored. Thank you.

      Thanks for the review! Just FYI: there is not much of a performance difference between this version and older versions of LWC. Most lag would be from database access times (if set up incorrectly). However, there are plenty of bug fixes and improvements here, so I hope you're liking it!

    The option to use the action bar instead of chat for notices is my favorite feature of this plugin. I would highly recommend turning that on. 'useActionBar: true' in config.yml
    The plugin works wonderfully and it's nice to have LWC maintained and stable again.

    A really great essential plugin to any server! Been using it since 1.4.7 and would only recommend it to the rest as a protection plugin. The support is amazing and extremely friendly!
    Truly wish the best in the future for this plugin. :)

    Can I do that when I put chests, they are always public and only private when I put the command?

      In core.yml under blocks, for each block:
      autoRegister: public

      Thanks for the review, but please use the discussion section, github, or discord if you need support.
