Mob Death Messages Plugin for Minecraft 1.7.10

Minecraft is all about customization and creativity.  Astral Coding of PlanetMinecraft has created a plugin that provides another layer of customization to the game allowing mobs to utter their final words as they are slain.

This plugin is quite simple, as many plugins are.  At first glance its usefulness may seem limited, but it can definitely be used for more than its entertainment value.  A few examples of uses are:

 

  • Announcing the death of a specific mob that may be rare on your server

  • Keeping track of PvP kills

  • Adding RPG-esque elements to a server (X was slain!  Y exp gained.)

  • Alerting players to the death of friendly or passive mobs (great for custom maps!)

 

The plugin is still in production, and currently cannot make use of player variables – however this, along with colors and permissions, are slated for development.

 

Configuring the plugin is simple as well.  The file only contains two variables – the message and a true/false boolean for whether or not it is displayed.

 

While I love this plugin in its current state, I think it would be even better with some or all of the following:

 

  • Ability to edit messages in-game (only with permission, of course)

  • Option for displaying messages only to nearby players

  • More interaction with variables (such as cause of death)

  • Multiple death messages, either in sequence or at random
