Wrecking Ball Revived
Destroy stuff in the server to clear lag

Notice: This plugin has been forked from ApokPT’s Wrecking Ball plugin, and fixed for the newer updates of Unturned and rocket.

Due to the lack of updates/development for the plugin from the original author ApokPT, the plugin has been forked and fixed to work on the newer versions of Unturned and Rocket. The original repository for this plugin can be found here: https://github.com/ApokPT/Rocket-Plugin-Wrecking-Ball. My fork of the plugin can be found here: https://github.com/cartman-2000/Rocket-Plugin-Wrecking-Ball


This plugin can also make use of this plugin to get extended info in the scans. The plugin isn’t required for this plugin to work, without it you will only get an output of player Steam ID’s in the scans.


This addon allows you clear stuff in a defined radius using filters

Available Commands

/wreck <filter> <radius> [<x> <y> <z>]
/wreck <ItemID> <radius> [<x> <y> <z>]
/wreck <SteamID> <filter> <radius> [<x> <y> <z>]
Creates new elements destruction list. An xyz position is to be used when executing it from the console.
You can also use an ItemID or SteamID.
The filter flags in this are case sensitive.
/wreck confirm Confirms list destruction
/wreck abort Aborts list destruction
/wreck scan <filter> <radius> [<x> <y> <z>]
/wreck scan <ItemID> <radius> [<x> <y> <z>]
/wreck scan <SteamID> <filter> <radius> [<x> <y> <z>]
Scan for <filter> in <radius> and list counts for each type of element. An xyz position is to be used when executing it from the console.
You can also use an ItemID or SteamID.
The filter flags in this are case sensitive.
/wreck teleport b|s|v Teleports caller to a barricade/structure/vehicle at a random location.
/w Alias: Has same syntax as the above commands.
/listvehicles [radius] Command for listing all the vehicles plus the position and number of elements for those vehicles in a radius.
Running the command from the console will print out the full list of vehicles on the server.
The radius on the command is only used/needed when running it from a client.
/disablecleanup <“playername” | SteamID> Disables cleanup on a player until the next time they log onto the server, works as a toggle.
If you want to disable cleanup on specific players permanently, you should apply the cleanup skipping permissions to the player instead.
/listtopplayers Displays a list of players with the highest element counts on the server.

Other Options

Enabled Enables the command to be used. (does not apply to admins)
DestructionRate Default: 10. Number of times a second to run an interval for destroying elements. The intervals will run slower than what is set here if the server’s TPS is less than what this is set to, there can be at most one interval per server tic.
DestructionsPerInterval Default: 10. Number of elements to destroy in one interval. This times the DestructionRate gives you the Number of elements destroyed per second(destruction speed.). Note: Having a total destruction speed over 200 elements per second may lag clients that are in the area when it is being ran.
LogScans Allows scans to be printed to the Rocket Log.
PrintToChat Allows scans to be printed to your chat(can be difficult to use with the limited number of lines allowed in the chat.
Categories List of Categories. The Category Id’s are specified by a single char, and have to be unique to the others. Invalid chars are control characters and *. The Color attribute are set to the color names from the ConsoleColor Enum class in C#, which you can see here. Deleting this block in the config file will cause the default Categories to be loaded on the next plugin load.
Elements List of Elements. The Element id has to be unique on these records, and the CategoryId is set to the Category Id you want the element to be under. Deleting this block in the config file will cause the default Elements to be loaded on the next plugin load.
EnablePlayerInfo Enables the extended player info output to scans, requires that the Player Info Lib plugin be on the server and loaded, without the lib plugin this option will disable itself on plugin load. (Read update notes for, for info on the lib plugin.)
EnableCleanup Enables the auto cleanup feature in the plugin to cleanup buildables and player files by a set time since the player was on. Requires PlayerInfoLib or above.
BuildableCleanup Enables the cleaning up player buildables on the server.
BuildableWaitTime The number of days the player has to be inactive for their buildables to be cleaned up. To use this instead of Unturned’s internal decay feature, the internal one should be disabled.
PlayerDataCleanup Enables the cleanup of player data files, to keep the Players folder a bit tidy.
PlayerDataWaitTime The number of days the player has to be inactive for their player files to be cleaned up.
CleanupIntervalTime The amount of time between each cleanup batch.
CleanupPerInterval The number of players to cleanup per batch for each cleanup type.
EnableVehicleCap Enables an enforced server wide vehicle cap, to keep the lag caused by vehicles down, this has two mods(see the option below.).
VCapDestroyByElementCount Enables the destroying by element count mode with lowest count first. With this false, it’ll go by oldest first on the server instead.
MaxVehiclesAllowed Maximum number of vehicles to allow on a server before the cap kicks in.
Warning: This should be set to something higher than the natural spawn count for a map, otherwise it’ll keep on destroying vehicles on each interval.
VCapCheckInterval How often in seconds to run the check, it’s best to set this to something higher than the respawn rate for vehicles on your server.
LowElementCountOnly Enables destroying vehicles below a set count only.
MinElementCount Cars with this or more elements are safe from being cleaned up from the cap
KeepVehiclesWithSigns Allows you to keep vehicles with signs/flags from being cleaned up from the cap, will only destroy signless cars with this set.
LimitSafeGuards Enables the disabling of the min element count and signs safeguards and resetting to the beginning of the loop after a certain percentage of the max allowed vehicles have been skipped by these.
LimitSafeGuardsRatio Max number of vehicles to skip in percentage from max allowed vehicles.
PlayerElementListCutoff Sets the minimum elements needed to be displayed on the /listtopplayers command.

How to use:

  • /wreck wpf 200 (will queue all Walls, Pillars and Floors within 200 meters for destruction)
  • /wreck confirm (will confirm the destruction of the above queue)


Update Notes:

  • Added plot to the element list, under Agriculture.
  • Added the new Sentries to the Traps category, and the Carepackage to the Containers category(although the carepackage is setup by nelson to not save across server restarts.).
  • Added the /listtopplayers command that will allow you to see a list of players, with element counts, that have the highest element counts on the server. The command will also show extended player info if you have the player info lib plugin on the server.
  • Updated the elements list to include id: 1393 under the category of traps, for the new Precise Charge, you can either delete the elements block in the config file, or add it to the block.
  • Updated the elements list to include id’s: 1396 and 1397 for the new Ghillie Netting items, both have been added under the freeforms category. You can either delete and regenerate the elements block in the config or add these id’s with the category letter ‘m’ to the elements list.
  • Update various vehicle messages to print the Steam ID for the one who locked it, it will also print extended info of a player(like in element scans), if the player info lib plugin is active on the server. Added a teleport to vehicle feature(flag v) to /w teleport.
  • Updated the elements list to have the new Mannequins and plaques, under the Trophy Containers category.
  • Updated the elements list to have the new ramp walls, these have been added under the walls(flag w) category, also a check has been added to have a car with players in it skipped over by the vehicle cap, so it doesn’t kill the players in the vehicle.
  • Split the perms of the wreck command to allow specific parts of the command to be used, you will need to use the perm wreck.* to get all perms for the /wreck command, the other perms are in the permissions info section. Added permissions to allow a player with them to bypass the auto cleanup feature in the plugin(Players with these perms won’t decay.). Fixed the vehicle cap not working.
  • Added a sign check to the vehicle cap for those that have the “wb.bypassvehiclecap” permission.
  • Updated for compitibility with Unturned
  • Added some more aliases, listtp for listtopplayers, listv for listvehicles and disablec for disablecleanup.


  • Export element id lists to the config file, would allow you to set workshop id’s to the plugin without the need to import the id’s into the plugins code. – Completed in
  • Try to fix the potential for ghost/indestructible elements after a destruction run: Maybe something Nelson has to fix, as it appears that the barricade and structure arrays(two arrays/lists for both types of elements.) can get out of sync with each other in which only a server restart will fix. – Fixed in far as I can see in testing.)
  • Add scanning for elements on cars. Completed in
  • Add ability to scan by element ID(Will be either scan by the current style Category ID, or by Element ID.) Completed in, replace flags parameter with ItemID to use ItemID’s.
  • Add ability to scan by SteamID. completed in
  • Change the wreck command to be usable from the console too. Completed in
  • Look into adding a fix command(to heal elements.).
  • (Later) Add char/steam names to the owner output as well, this would require the creation of a library plugin to store the char/steam names of players on the server.  The plugin will use a mysql database to store the player info, and will be optional to use with this plugin(Steam id’s only on the owners without the plugin.).  Lib plugin completed, Initial support in Wrecking Ball
  • Add an alternate to the Decay feature in Unturned(would require the player info lib plugin.) Allow the elements and/or player files on the server to be cleaned up automatically after a set amount of time of them not being seen on the server. Completed in, for both player buildables and data files.
