    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 1.13.0-1.17.x: LWCX 2.2.7

    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.

    Firstly, this plugin is very nice, awesome!
    Thanks to developer that has make this plugin free for everyone!

    But there is a little bug i get
    1. At that time I wanted to prank my friend by locking the double (oak door) door at his house using /private for one door, but when I opened the locked door, the next door also opened (like a lever)

    2. I have a mob farm where I lock the looting area with a trapdoor (spruce trapdoor), I lock it with /cpassword p, but my friend can still enter the boot area using Pressure Plate

    yeah that's the only bug i found
    tested using Papermc version git-Paper-49 (MC: 1.17) (Implementing API version 1.17-R0.1-SNAPSHOT) (Git: 1c77d64)

    Very good; exceeds expectations. Not only locks chests, but all containers as well as doors.

    Version: 2.2.6
    You need to customize the deny message. Players don't know to type /lwc or /cmodify to add a friend. Zero ability to edit configuration.

    Version: 2.2.6
    A must have plugin in your server, but it could be nice to have something else that a message in the chat to see privates containers, for instance "private chest" on the inventory of the chest or in the top of the toolbar
