Best way to send mass block changes to client

  1. I think the title says it all. I've tried doing this already with a Protocal Lib sub API caled BlockPatcher on my 1.7 server, but I couldn't get it to work. (I can send code if needed)
    Are there any other ways I could accomplish this?

    FYI here are some of the ideas I am trying to code.

    1. Xray plugin that is actually good

    2. Client side recording playback (Replay plugin)
     
  2. Xray in and of itself is a pretty intense thing to deal with, yano considering you're attempting to dynamically identify all blocks that are not visible/that meet certain conditions and then change them to some other random block type. Any other method is just a guessing game, really.

    As for your second point, you'd need to elaborate a little more possibly with the use of an example. And you call it a replay "plugin", however that's going to be a modification since if you want to alter/add/remove anything client side the only way to do that is through the use of client modifications.
