I have provided links to all legacy versions of HeroicDeath based on which CraftBukkit versions they support. CraftIRC Integration Do you use CraftIRC? Do you want HeroicDeath to send its death messages to your IRC channel? Xon has developed a helper plugin to do just that! I do not maintain or test this plugin, but I am happy to endorse it and link it for any CraftIRC/HeroicDeath users who want to use both together. https://github.com/Xon/HeroicDeathToCraftIRC/downloads JSONAPI Integration Xon has ALSO developed a helper plugin that pushes HeroicDeath messages to JSONAPI, allowing server admins to easily procure deaths via anything capable of reading a JSON string. Thanks, Xon! https://github.com/downloads/Xon/HeroicDeathToJSONAPI/HeroicDeathToJSONAPI.jar Features Broadcast cause of death when a player dies Shows who killed whom in PvP and with what item Shows which kind of monster was responsible for eating a player Optionally shows which world they were killed in! Define an unlimited (within reason) number of custom messages based on cause of death, and a random message will be chosen Log deaths to a configurable file, including timestamp and location of death! Send messages on a per-world basis or to the whole server, configure which worlds should get messages and which shouldn't! Define the text color to be used for the message, the player(s) involved, and the "murder weapon" (for PvP deaths) Customize item names to be displayed for PvP deaths (Ex. "Excalibur" instead of "Gold Sword") Supports items with durability! (wood, coal, dye, wool) Item list doesn't need to be updated for future Minecraft patches! (If an item is not defined in the items file, the name of its Material will be prettified and used by default) Supports following causes of death (all lines below the :Tag will be treated as messages for that type of death): Code: :Drown :Cactus :Fire :Explosion :Creeper :Ghast :Slime :Zombie :PigZombie :Spider :Skeleton :Giant :Wolf :Enderman :CaveSpider :Silverfish :Chicken :Cow :Pig :Sheep :Squid :Fall :PVP :Void :Lava :Other :Suffocation :Dispenser :Lightning :Suicide :Starvation Screenshot Installation FAST INSTALL: Drop the JAR in your plugins directory and reload plugins; HeroicDeath will automatically create default files. If you want to edit them before your first run: Download latest .ZIP archive from the link at the top Extract the archive into your main server directory (archive contains directory mapping) Open /plugins/HeroicDeath/config.yml and configure to taste Open /plugins/HeroicDeath/heroicdeath.messages and add/remove/edit death messages Open /plugins/HeroicDeath/heroicdeath.items and add/remove/edit item names Save all configuration files and reload your server Configuration config.yml The config file contains default text colors and logging preferences. You can specify the chat colors that will be used for broadcasting a death message, displaying the name of the dead (and their killer if applicable), and displaying the name of the item used to kill the player (for PvP deaths). You can now also choose whether or not to log death data, death messages, and a few formatting choices for your logs. This file is saved in the YAML format, so please be sure to maintain the formatting and change only the element values. Default configuration: Code: # HeroicDeath Configuration # Messages are defined in heroicdeath.messages # Items (for PvP kills) are defined in heroicdeath.items # This file is for configuration of colors, log preferences and localized mob names ## Color options ## message: Text color of death notifications, wrapped around names/item. ## name: Color for the name of victim and killer. ## item: Color for the name of the item used in a PvP death. #Color is defined according to the Bukkit enum ChatColor #Acceptable entries: ##BLACK ##DARK_BLUE ##DARK_GREEN ##DARK_AQUA ##DARK_RED ##DARK_PURPLE ##GOLD ##GRAY ##DARK_GRAY ##BLUE ##GREEN ##AQUA ##RED ##LIGHT_PURPLE ##YELLOW ##WHITE # #If color entered is inappropriate, HeroicDeath will default to the following values: ##message: RED ##name: DARK_AQUA ##item: GOLD colors: message: RED name: DARK_AQUA item: GOLD #Logging Preferences: ##data: true to log a serialized object representing all the relevant information associated with a death ##messages: true to log death messages (as output to the server) to a separate file ##time: Whether or not to timestamp messages (if logging messages), and what timestamp format to use for data/messages ###stamp: true to timestamp messages ###format: Uses format strings from Java SimpleDateFormat. Read all here: http://download.oracle.com/javase/1.4.2/docs/api/java/text/SimpleDateFormat.html ##files: Filenames to store data/messages in. A server admin could ostensibly change this value daily/weekly/monthly for collection of timed logs ###data: Data storage filename ###messages: Messages storage filename log: data: true messages: true time: stamp: true format: MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss z files: data: death_data.log messages: death_messages.log #Event Support: ##If you only want HeroicDeath to send its custom event for other plugins to pick up, and NOT send the death message, set this to true. events: only: false #Localized monster names: ##If you would like to specify custom localization for the mob names, edit the defaults below monsters: ghast: Ghast slime: Slime monster: Monster zombie: Zombie pigzombie: PigZombie spider: Spider creeper: Creeper skeleton: Skeleton wolf: Wolf unknown: Unknown giant: Giant #Options ##useDisplayName: Set to true if you want HeroicDeath to display the player's display name instead of their fixed character name. ##serverBroadcast: Set to FALSE if you want HeroicDeath to only broadcast its messages in the world they belong to. ##worlds: Lists of quiet/loud worlds for broadcast targeting. NOTE: World names are case-sensitive. ###quiet: Worlds listed here will NEVER receive ANY HeroicDeath broadcasts. ###loud: Worlds listed here will ALWAYS receive ALL HeroicDeath broadcasts. options: useDisplayName: false serverBroadcast: true worlds: quiet: [peacefulworld, noobworld] loud: [pvpworld, nether] heroicdeath.messages Contains all the possible messages that can be displayed, sorted by type of death. Every line under a death type label is treated as a message for that death type, until the next label is reached. Labels are prefixed with the colon ":" and are self-explanatory. Variables accepted in messages: Code: %d holds the name of the dead player. %a holds the name of the attacking entity (player or monster) for PVP and Monster deaths. %i holds the name of the attacking player's current item for PVP deaths. %w holds the world the death occurred in heroicdeath.items This file contains custom names for the item a PvP killer is holding. The names here will be replaced in the %i marker for PvP deaths. If a mapping is not provided for an item in this file, a default name will be used automatically. Item Format: NAME:ID:<Optional>DATA Item IDs and Data Values may be found on the Minecraft Wiki Optional DATA parameter uses hex notation, so purple wool would be "purple wool:35:0xa" Localization If you have translated heroicdeath.messages into another language and would like to share your translation with the community, let me know! I'd be happy to share it here in the OP for those looking.
