Monetary Death Penalty


Fear death as MonetaryDeathPenalty will remove currency from a player's account when they die. This is a great way to help balance a server's economy.


This is the MonetaryDeathPenalty plugin you can add to your server to monetary penalise players that die. It is currently v2.23 and was designed for v.1.6.4, v1.7.2, v1.7.9 and v1.8.1. It requires Vault. MonetaryDeathPenalty also supports most permissions and most currency plugins. You can add regions to the worldguardBlacklist in the config.yml to disable any money loss within those regions.

I will continue to support this and add many more features. If you have any suggestions please let me know in the comments or through a pm.

As of v2.0 this plugin sends statistics about the usage to the server You can disable it by setting "opt-out" to true in \plugins\PluginMetrics\config.yml.


Auto-checking for updates

As of v2.0 this plugin will check for updates using Curse's ServerMods API. It always checks the current version with the version on BukkitDev and will notify ops or any players/groups with the mdp.admin permission that there is an update available. It will never automatically download an update without the user typing /mdp update. All of the updates are downloaded from BukkitDev. These checks can be disabled in the config.yml by setting checkForUpdates to false.


As people have requested a donation button to help support the development of MonetaryDeathPenalty I've decided to add one. Thanks to the current and future donations I really appreciate it.
