DeathMessages allows customization of death message broadcasts that occur when players die. Messages can be configured and support color codes, item hovering, viewing killer and dead player inventory at time of death, displaying various killer/dead player stats (health, kills, etc), and more.


DeathMessages comes packed with various features to set your server apart from others
  • Highly configurable and flexible message system
  • PlaceholderAPI support
  • Configurable messages for specific monster deaths
  • Disable any unwanted death event broadcasts
    • Setting messages to blank lines disables broadcasts
  • Control who sees death messages
  • Allow players to toggle death messages
  • Inventory Snapshots - View player inventories at time of death
    • DeathMessages saves a players inventory when they die or kill somebody to allow viewing the players items at a later date
    • View player health, food, exp level, and any active potions at the time of death
  • Configure death messages for specific events
    • Ability to have a random message chosen per event
  • Hoverable weapon placeholders
  • Various placeholders for killer and dead health, kills, etc.


Placeholders allow you to replace texts in your broadcasts with variables present at the time a player dies
  • [weapon] - Displays the weapons name or display name (if applicable)
  • as well as a hoverable icon display
  • [killer_kills] - Displays killers kills
  • [killer_deaths] - Displays killers deaths
  • [killer_name] - Displays killers real name
  • [killer_displayname] - Displays killers display name
  • [killer_health] - Displays killers health
  • [dead_kills] - Displays dead players kills
  • [dead_deaths] - Displays dead players deaths
  • [dead_name] - Displays dead players real name
  • [dead_displayname] - Displays dead players display name
  • [dead_health] - Displays dead players health

Along with these placeholders, the plugin also supports usage of PlaceholderAPI placeholders if available.

  • deathmessages.command.reload: Allow players to use the /deathmessages reload subcommand
  • deathmessages.command.toggle: Allow players to use the deathmessages toggle subcommand
