    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 1.13.0-1.15.0: LWCX 2.2.3

    Development builds of the plugin may also be found on the build server and various mirrors, 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.

    The best plugin of its category without contest. Furthermore, a very efficient support.

    Thank you for maintaining this. How do I volunteer to translate? there's no locale for my language, portuguese, I'd be happy to make one.

      Author's Response
      No problem! I'm glad to keep the plugin alive. Feel free to translate, there is a page on the wiki about "Custom Locales" that also applies to adding new languages. If you have any questions, ask me on Discord. :)

    The dev is fantastic and helpful. Massive props for keeping this plugin going strong. Adding new features too! Works fantastic on Spigot 1.14.4 and plays nice with other plugins too.

    Wow..how many LWC forks are out there? Anyway, this fixed one problem I had with Modern LWC. Keep up the good work.

      On Spigot, only 2 I believe (and I have maintained both for a time). Most open source plugins have a million of them though, it's true! See esp. Factions for example. Thanks for the review, glad it fixed an issue!

    Version: 2.2.1
    Useful plugin. Been using it for years in my server. But seems like it doesnt support SavageFactions. Player cant seem to unlock the chests once they overclaim. Can you add support for SavageFactions as well?
    1. pop4959
      Author's Response
      The Factions integration should work with any FactionsUUID-compatible plugin, which SavageFactions appears it should be, since it is a fork. You may want to contact the developer of that plugin to fix the integration and/or also add it's own hook into LWC. Please come to the Discord support channel instead if you have any questions.

    Good old LWC, thank you for keeping it alive and fixing bugs. Really the best plugin lock chests with many options.

    Version: 2.2.0
    Much better than modern lwc, this version has a couple really cool and useful features that sets it apart from the main version.

      Thank you! Believe it or not, I actually happen the be the same guy who authored the updates to Modern LWC for 2.1.0 - 2.1.5! Unfortunately, as a result of complications that arose, I will only be able to provide updates and support for LWCX going forward. Since LWC is already a well established plugin, the goal is mostly to improve performance and usability in this fork, with a few new features along the way! :D

    Can always rely on this plugin for functionality, and Pop for support. He's also open to suggestions to improve the plugin.
