    How would I create a new file that stores, for example, player kills and deaths, then puts that new file inside a folder called playerData?

    Why do you want to make a new file for each player?
    And you don't need to make a file when they join, just when you need to save things.

    Chance of things getting corrupt is very low though, just don't touch it by hand.
    Database is also an option

    What part are you having issues with?
    The new file? When they join?
    What do you have already?

    I have the custom config code https://www.spigotmc.org/wiki/config-files/#using-custom-configurations
    I dont know how to set the name of the file to the uuid of the player and how to put it into a folder
    EDIT: Also how would I create a new file for the player when they join? Im still new to plugin dev and java in general

    @JustDoom Listen to the PlayerJoinEvent, get their UUID, turn it into a String.

    @EventHandlerpublic void join(PlayerJoinEvent event){
    Player player = event.getPlayer();
    String uuid = player.getUniqueId().toString();
    }

    @JustDoom Don't just say done, post the code as well please.
    Now you have a File reference for each player that joins.

    Check if it exists, if so: load it.
    If not: write a blank config.
