A new way to play football in Minecraft !

Installation & Update

First installation

Just drag and drop DeadChest.jar to your plugins file and launch your server. In the plugin/deadchest folder you will find 3 files :

  • config.yml : File to edit the configuration of the plugin (you should open it and put the params you want !)
  • locale.yml : Langage file, english by default, you can edit this file to the langage you want
  • chestData.yml : Do not open or edit this file, it's here that all data about the plugin is stored.
  • deadchest.log  : Track all Deadchest events here.

Update from a previous version

Before making the update you need to do these step:

  • Be sure that no deadchest are living in your worlds.
  • Shutdown your server and remove the folder DeathChest
  • Put the new jar file
  • Relaunch the server ( DeadChest folder is generate again with configs file)
  • Update your configuration by editing config.yml and locale.yml

If you remove the deadchest folder and some deadchests was still alive, all these deadchest are now corrupted. If a player break a deadchest, he will get nothing back and the holographic text will stay. if you are in this case don't worry, I made a command to handle this case. Just type /dc repair next to corrupted deadchests. (You need to be OP or have permission (deadchest.admin)
