That, especially in combination with a filesystem that supports snapshots, would do a lot to mitigate the stupid harm these people can cause. You could snapshot every 5 minutes or so, and roll back to any previous state you please.


There is a configuration for autosaving, just like in single player. It is possible to adjust the frequency and quantity of saves. However, it could be problematic to roll back to the correct save if an admin with command-line control of the server is not present at the time of griefing. If a server admin is present, simply shut down the server, look for the most recent autosave, copy it to the main save, update the ban list, and restart.

I haven't tried to do anything in Lua, but I bet some scripts could be written there that would allow a monitor program on the host computer automatically restore a recent backup if a trusted player triggered it.

I looked at the save format for other reasons, and it's not very diff friendly, even if you use a decent binary diff program and expand the zip file. :-/ It'd be interesting if you could save as a transaction log of some kind. Perhaps every player action could be recorded, and the game rules used for all the game generated state changes. Just random thoughts.
