Custom Skulls

Custom Skulls - Make mobs and players dropping skulls!

Version: v0.2

With Custom Skulls you can add some great features to your server. You can set that some mobs will drop their own head when they die, with a custom chance which could be set up in the config file. You could even enable the feature that players will drop their own player heads, which add's a great PVP experience. Custom Skulls also supports multi world support, and it supports all major permissions systems.


  • Let four different mobs drop their own head, with custom chances configurable in the config file.
  • Let players drop their own head (or a steve head, customizable)
  • Multi world support, to give you the ability to enable or disable skull dropping or have custom chances in different worlds.
  • Supports all major permission plugins.


You could find the download of the plugin on the top-right of this page above the sidebar, there's a download button. This download button should redirect you to the last downloadable version of Custom Skulls. You could also visit the 'Files' page of Custom Skulls, all the downloadable versions are available there.

    this works fine for me in 1.7.10

    no errors or anything yet (gives custom heads fine, head drop percentages seem to be working fine, no console errors).

    EDIT: the issue with players not dropping any heads is still around (only tested by repeatedly killing myself)

    Thanks for this plugin, i really like having a plugin which controls heads and isn't bundled with a protection plugin (because i already have a protection plugin)

    I´ve one last question, what CraftBukkit version are you using? Also, do you see any errors in the console?

    I'm asking for your CraftBukkit version because it doesn't work with old CraftBukkit versions, so that might cause the problem. To send me your version, please do /ver (or 'ver' in the console) and send me the string with the version number returned.

    Thanks in advance,

    I tried changing the drop chance to 1 but it's still not working. The problem is that heads don't seem to drop at all. I want players to drop steve heads when they die.

    Soon, Custom Skulls is fully build in to Safe Creeper, a major plugin I developed. Does anyone have any suggestions to put into Safe Creeper according to Custom Skulls, like more features you already wanted in Custom Skulls. If anybody has an idea, please reply on this comment.

    Also, if you are able to suggest any feature, that feature will probably also be added into Custom Skulls itself unless it's a special thing for Safe Creeper.

    Also, if you don't know about Safe Creeper yet, you should defenitly give it a try. It's a major plugin to have on your server. Like: Nerfing creepers, with a LOT of things to configure. Block endermans, withers. Give equiment to mobs, add sound effects to mobs or players. Make slimes split into 6 instead of 2 or 3. The posibilities are endless ;). Safe Creeper page.

    Thanks in advance,

    Thanks for the report in the first place :). Could you please try if they drop if you set the chance to 1, if so it's something we forget while updating the plugin :$. If not, I will take a look inside the plugin to fix it. Or is it just that the player heads drop as steve heads (or the other way around, steve heads as player heads)?

    Thanks in advance,

    I need some help. The skeleton, zombie and creeper heads drop as they are supposed to. But the player (steve) heads don't seem to drop in my server, even though I gave them a 100% dropchance in the config file. I put the customskulls.jar in my plugin folder like any other, so I did nothing wrong there.

    Do you have any idea how to fix this? I would really like to use Heads as money in my server. Please help me out here.

    Thanks in advance!

    @sigurd4: Go

    I will try to add this feature soon :)

    I'm currently adding CustomSkulls into Safe Creeper, another plugin I made. Using Safe creeper you can even customize it per world, arena, region, location, level, anything you can think of haha.

    you should add a abillity to change wether the head is going to drop only if the entity was killed by a player. maybe something like this?:

                enabled: true
                dropSkull: true
                dropChance: 40
                playerKillOnly: false

    I am sorry for the late reply. I had a huge issue while updating it, but I can tell you, I found the solution. The update will be available within a day!

    Hope this helps, Tim Visée

    Btw, I actually hope you didn't switch to an alterantive yet, although I can understand why. Anyhow, this update has a feature that it doesnt need to be updated by newer Minecraft versions.

    Also, the problem was caused by a Minecraft update (The Minecraft coding, not just bukkit)
