This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of Minecraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

for Bukkit / Spigot 1.8+

Note: The current version of this plugin can be found here. Support of older versions and feature requests can still be requested below.


Use an item of your choice, a feather by default, to guide players back to their last death location.

Unlike the /back command, FindDeathLocation does not simply teleport players to where they last died. Instead, clicking with the configured item will tell you the distance between you and your death location. A fun yet challenging way to allow players to find their dropped loot! Great for survival or factions servers! Completely configurable, very simple, and very lightweight.


  • /finddeath - allows players to find their last death location, requires the permission finddeathlocation.command, but not needed if players have the finddeathlocation.item permission.
  • /tpdeath - teleport to your own death location, requires the permission
  • /tpdeath <player> - teleport to a players death location, requires the permission


FindDeathLocation has the following permissions:

  • finddeathlocation.item – use the configured item to find your last death location.
  • finddeathlocation.command – use /finddeath to find your last death location.
  • – use /tpdeath to teleport to your death location.
  • – use /tpdeath <player> to teleport to a player's death location.
  • – bypass the teleportation delay.
  • finddeathlocation.log – allow admins to see players death locations.


This plugin collects data on the number of servers it is being run on, as well as the combined amount of players. All data is kept anonymous. No server ips/names or player names are collected. If you would like to opt out of this data collection, feel free to change the "metrics" value in the config.yml from true to false.
