Sometimes while playing minecraft I can't deal with the message spam of other people creating items on my server. Can't see enemies through it, etc etc. Is there a way to turn off -just- item creation messages E.g.

giving someUser 3 of Dirt

in chat? The choices for chat settings currently are, unhappily:

  • chat: hidden
  • chat: shown
  • chat: commands only

So every option but the one I need. Any other workaround?

Although you did not specify, I'm assuming that the items are being spawned using NEI. If that is the case, you will want to edit config/NEIServer.cfg, modifying the line

notify-item=CONSOLE, OP



If your users are using the /give command, this won't work but I can't imagine why they would as NEI is far easier to use.

  • That sounds very promising, yes, I'll definitely make that happen!

/gamerule logadmincommands false

This should do it if they are typing in the commands using chat.

If they are using command blocks use the command:

/gamerule commandblockoutput false
