About TrophyHeads

A plugin that causes players (and or mobs) to drop their heads when they die.



  • Players can drop their heads when they die based on configuration settings.
  • Players can spawn head with the /headspawn command. (Requires permissions.)
  • Players can rename heads using a named piece of paper plus a head in a craftbox.
  • Mobs optionally drop heads.
  • Right click a skull to see who it belonged to.

How to install

  • Just drop the jar file in your plugins directory and restart your server.
  • Update config.yml as needed.
  • Update permissions.

    Seems like a good plugin

    Only problem is whenever I break a head, it turns into a regular Skeleton Skull :/

    @cnaude: Go

    I'm aware of this, I was used to sneak+left click on it :I I'd stick with the version I use actually than the updated one I'm quite too used with this feature xD

    Until then, I'll wont update to the latest release, without this feature (Always used to shift + left click on heads) than right clicking on them... sorry

    EDIT: I've forked your plugin then myself (I know its bad) had to decompile the current version I have on my server and using that part of code in your current releases and I got it to work :)

    To get info on a head use right click instead.

    All of the heads on my server are displaying the Alex and Steve skins instead of any of the players or mobs. I've tried changing the "player-skin" and "rename-enabled" settings to every combination of true and false and nothing works. I haven't changed any of the skin names in the config. I'm running MC 1.9.4 and TrophyHeads 1.12.7-46.

    Nevermind. However, when breaking a head, it drops as an unknown head. Also, sometimes, heads of the same type do not stack.

    Running 1.8. Set player drop rate to 100, and players still do not drop heads.

    @ZeroThinking: Go

    That's an interesting drop rate. I'm going to have to do some random number testing in java and see whats going on. My calculations are pretty simple. Even with a 4% drop rate you can technically drop 30 heads. It's all probability.

    Hey there cnaude.

    It seems as though the drop rates are not what I have set them to in the config, I'm guessing that drop value of 100 means %100 drop chance, 1 would be %1. Most of the passive mobs I set to 4, but in-game the chance is a lot more than %4, i killed 30 cows and got 4 heads on my first test. Am I using the drop values incorrectly, if not then I think the drop chances could do with a touch up in the next update.

    Other than this I think you have done a really awesome job with this plugin :D

    Is this perm for the victim or the killer? trophyheads.drop

    I would like to have two separat permissions, one for killing players so that it drops heads and one that specifies if the player can drop their head.

    Like these from playerheads: playerheads.canbeheadmob playerheads.canlosehead playerheads.canbehead
