DeathTpPlus announces a death with a random message based on the death cause and allows you to teleport to the point of death It can also create a TombStone at the place you died to let you save your inventory (aka DeadMansChest).You can also create a tomb sign which can be used as respawn point and as a place of information of how often you died and what your last death cause was.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to some issues with yaml you can get the following error: unacceptable character '?' " in the log, The fix is to remove the รค atm from the default messages and if you have custom messages to remove any of them using special characters. Sorry about that!

How does it work?

Take a look at how it works.. Videos

Also take a look at this picture to know what I'm talking about in the config file and on these pages AllTheStuff

Based on the original plugin from lonelydime. Integrates a fork of furt from cenotaph and tomb from dark_balor.

PLEASE NOTE: Mung3r is taken over from here, he did already help me a lot and is willing to keep this plugin updated. THANKS a lot

  • DeathLogs (Show the total number of times somebody died)
  • MultiKills (Well... you know.... quake style... no sound though :-) )

Don't want one of the features? No worries! Just disable it in the config file and it'll be like that feature isn't in the plugin at all! The file IOs aren't called and neither are the methods used for those features. Worried about performance? Don't be!


  • Upload the DeathTpPlus.jar file into your plugins directory.
  • Start your server or do a reload
  • Configure the config.yml file in your plugins/DeathTpPlus/
  • Change the deathmessages and tombmessages to your liking, if you have some good ones post them here!
  • Give the permissions to use certain commands or features
  • Restart your server or do a reload to read changed config

  • Upcoming Features
  • MAJOR Internal Reworking (that is really necessary)
  • Updates to RB of CB


  • Q: Colors are not working correctly in messages, what is wrong?
    A: If you are using Essentials Chat turn that off, otherwise you need to live with it or ask Essentials Teams why that happens.
  • Q: What does "expected <block end>, but found Scalar" in my log messages mean?
    A: Probably you forgot to use \" or ' to get a "
  • Q: I see a killed by X message but I did use /suicide from essentials or similar.
    A: This is a bug of the other plugin not setting the death cause correctly. Nothing I can do. Sorry.
  • Q: If I die in a cave or in nether and use /deathtp I will teleport back to the place I died but on top of the world
    A: Change teleportToHighestBlock: true to false but read the comments first in the config.
  • Q: Could you support RegionPlugin XYZ?
    A: Not until a general API similar to Vault for economics comes out. I will support region plugins I use myself.
  • Q: Can I help you?
    A: Sure, you can try the most recent dev-build... should be in sync with the github issues!!!
