Ever go out mining or fall into a pit of lava, or somehow die? Ever wish there was an easier way to find your stuff or that it stuck around longer after death? Introducing Dead Man's Chest! With non-destructive glowstone towers (configurable) with a configurable height so you can easily find your stuff! Best of all the glowstone doesn't drop anything when mined (default), so you don't have to worry about players dying just to get free glowstone! This is the official continuation of the PlayerChestDeath plugin on the forum. I have contacted the original author by email and have official approval to do whatever I want with this plugin.

Source Code


  • No death chest if the player doesn't have anything
  • An option to require players to have a chest (or two for a double chest) in their inventory upon death to get a death chest.
  • An option to have doublechest death chests! (with permissions support)
  • Quick loot death chests!
  • Death chests disappear instantly after being quick looted
  • Permissions support!
  • Option to have a non-destructive glowstone tower over your chest
  • Configurable glowstone tower height
  • LWC locking support
  • Option to have death chests disappear after a certain time
  • Option to have the rest of your items that don't fit in the chest drop on the ground naturally or to just disappear
  • Very configurable!
