RespawnLocationFix - Version 1.0

This plugin will be obsolete as of the 1.2.3 recommended build, as bukkit has fixed this on their own.

This plugin fixes the glitch where sometimes a player teleports up after logging out and rejoining a server, due to Minecraft incorrectly thinking the player is in a bad spot.

I was playing on a hardcore death-ban server, and someone logged out in the nether. When they came back, they were teleported up above their tunnel and into lava, getting killed and banned. I figured I could prevent such woe from happening to others.

Info Video! Please watch!


  • Fixes glitch where player teleports up upon Minecraft thinking player is in a bad spot
  • The plugin does it's own check of if the spot the player was in is safe, allowing the player to spawn in Rails, doors, trapdoors, etc - all places they could walk into anyways
  • Still allows for spawning in water/lava, as is normal in the game. Allows for traps.
  • If it deems the area occupied by blocks, then it teleports them up to next open surface like normal.
