Anti Xray Engine with Paper Jars

A not so well-known feature with paper servers is its brilliant anti xray system it has already programmed into your server. On many servers this is set to false so isnt working as default and it only required one change to be active!

They provide three engines:

Engine 1: Will block out any ores and blacken out the view of anyone using xray. Making it near impossible to find any ores by using popular xray methods and exploits.

Engine False: This is set to false and doesn’t provide any anti xray features.

Engine 2: This is another popular engine choice as it shows ores in hidden blocks also, making it impossible to determine what blocks are ore and what aren’t when your x-raying.
