    That's not fixing the problem, however, only avoiding it (as well as any new features added). When I get the debug info, I can help further. I can't do anything by just guessing.

    Well I just went ahead and downgraded back to 1.9.6 works perfectly now.

    Again, the only thing that changed with chests was verification that the player is able to build in the area based on a number of things. Turn on the debug mode and use checkchest. It will tell why they aren't dropping. Without knowing the reason it's being denied, there's little I can do.

    Doing /dc2 checkchest always shows false for all players without OP. It didn't do this before so something else must've changed, It shows false anywhere in the world in any world.

    @Onewingseraphim: Go

    No permissions changed at all for death chests - the only thing that was added regarding chests at all was verification that the person is able to build in that location.

    Use the command "/dc2 checkchest" to see if a chest will drop in that location. You can verify what is causing a chest to not drop by turning the Debug setting to true ("/dc2 set debug true") and check the logs when a chest should spawn. Disclaimer: Debug mode will print a lot of information in your logs.

    For some reason the permissions are messed up non-op players can't get death chests although it worked in ver. 1.9.6 just fine.

    Odd - the plugin writes the config on the first use - it doesn't actually use a default file like some plugins .. I'll have to see why it would have done that.

    On a side note, the next version I completely rewrote how messages are handled, and they use the exact names of damages ... I dunno what I was thinking to not do it this way to start. All messages will convert over automatically.

    I will also add some error checking to hopefully prevent re-writes of an invalid file. Sure, the messages will all derp out until it's fixed, but that's likely better than having the messages file rewrite on every mistake.

    I see :-)

    I noticed you forgot to enclose the FireballMob message within single quotes.

    I tried to change the message (added color codes and such), saved the changes and after reloading the plugin it resetted the file back to its orignal state.

    There's no official rabbit or guardian heads at this time.

    Can you block just PVE or PVP what?

    I've been coding for about two decades. All changing a language is about is learning the syntax, for the most part.
