    Death and Rebirth moved to DevBukkit. This Thread is not updated anymore. Of course you can still post here, but I recommend to use DevBukkit.

    Death and Rebirth: v2.3.6
    Players die like in most MMORPGs and need to be resurrected.​

    !! If you update to v2.3.x use '/shrine update <shrine>' to update each shrine !!
    Download Github : Netload
    Source Github
    After installation you have to activate the plugin using /dar enable <yourWorld>.​
    Language files (open)

    If you translate them in your language please contact me so i can add them here. Thanks :).​
    Rename the file to "message.yml" and put it in /plugins/Death and Rebirth/​
    Additional info on editing:
    • never use tabs in yml (yaml) files
    • use UTF-8 encoding if you have special character like ä, é or something like that.
    Installation (open)

    1. Put the DeathAndRebirth.jar in you plugins folder.
    2. After you start the server the plugin will create all necessary files.
    3. You may now want to edit the config. An explanation of all variables can be found below or directly in the config file.
    4. Activate the plugin for each world using /dar enable <world>.
    5. Deactivate spawning features form other plugins (i.e. MyHome: Spawn at home).
    6. If you use Permissions give normal users 'dar.res' and admins 'dar.admin'. Special nodes are 'dar.ignore' and 'dar.nodrops'. If admins have the '*' node you may want to remove nodrop or ignore for them like this:

                                default: false
                                build: true
                                    - '*'
                                    - '-dar.ignore'
                                    - '-dar.nodrop'
    7. Done :)!

    How to create shrines:
    A tutorial in french from JeasonP (Merci! :))

    • Ghosts: When a player dies he becomes a ghost and will respawn at his location of death. A lightning effect will appear on death and on rebirth (can be turned off). The location will be marked with a sign saying "R.I.P <Playername>". The player gets a new name: "Ghost of <Playername>". Ghosts are ignored by monsters, get no damage and are excluded from PvP. In the config file can be choosen if they can use doors, levers and buttons, if they can fly or chat. Picking up items and using chests and furnaces is not possible for ghosts.
    • Dropping: You can decide if players will drop their items like normal or if the items disappear and the player gets them upon resurrection.
    • Flying (for ghosts): To fly you have to hold crouch and steer with the mouse. Walking is not necessary. Flying is disabled by default. Also the server has to enable the fly mode in the file. That's a problem, because cheaters will be able to abuse this. If you want to protect your server I recommend using NoCheat.
    • Shrines: Shrines can be used by players to resurrect themselves. Admins can turn anything into a shrine. Therefore you need to select an area (just like in WorldEdit) using the selection mode and a stick or your crosshair and commands. Left clicking with a stick will show admins the name of a shrine.
      There are two modes (shrine only on and off):
      1. on : Ghosts have to get to a shrine to use resurrection.
      2. off: Players can bind their souls to a shrine (right click) and use the resurrection command (/res) anywhere to get resurrected.
    • Resurrection: Players can resurrect others. In the configuration can be determined how close the player has to be and if he needs a special item which will be consumed.
      A player can resurrect himself by right clicking a shrine or using /reb near a shrine. If reverseSpawning is enabled the player will spawn at the shrine (or at the spawn if he didn't bind his soul) and resurrection is possible at his grave.
    • Multiworld: Death and Rebirth has to be enabled for each world separately.
    • Admins: have the possibility to change all options ingame. Ops can also use left clicking to get the name of a shrine.

    Permissions (open)

    • dar.nodrop: The drops will be saved and the player gets them on rebirth.

            default: false
            build: true
                - '*'
                - '-dar.ignore'
                - '-dar.nodrop'
    Spout (open)

    Spout is not required to use this plugin but if you want to use this plugin to it's full extent you may want to install Spout (Server and Client).
    • Dead players have a ghost model
    • Sound effects
    • Notifications (achievement-like) instead of chat messages
    • Ghosts get a different sky color.
    Known Bugs (open)

    • MyHome can't be overriden. Deactivate 'respawnToHome' in its config. This also applies to other plugins which influence spawning. Essentials and Commandbook are working without changes.
    • With Spout: If you have been a ghost the clouds will glow at night. The only way to prevent that is by turning of this feature (changeColors=false in the config).

    Ressources I used (open)

    Read this if you update from 1.x to 2.x !! (open)

    Unfortunately i broke your shrines. Sorry =).
    That was necessary to add the multiworld support.
    There are two ways to fix this:

    1. Delete the shrines.yml located in \plugins\Death and Rebirth\data
    and add your shrines again to the world.

    2. Edit the shrines.yml and add the world name like this:

    Before (v1.1):
                '3': 0
                '2': 0
                '10': 1
                '1': 0
                '0': 1
                '7': 1
                '6': 1
                '5': 1
                '4': 1
                '9': 1
                '8': 1
                '11': 1
                z: 101
                y: 63
                x: -45
                z: 103
                y: 66
                x: -43
                z: 102
                y: 63
                x: -44
    After (v2.0):
                    '3': 0
                    '2': 0
                    '10': 1
                    '1': 0
                    '0': 1
                    '7': 1
                    '6': 1
                    '5': 1
                    '4': 1
                    '9': 1
                    '8': 1
                    '11': 1
                    z: 101
                    y: 63
                    x: -45
                    z: 103
                    y: 66
                    x: -43
                    z: 102
                    y: 63
                    x: -44
    As you can see all you have to do is add the name of your world to it. It's important that the beginning of the worldname is between "shrines" and the name of the first shrine in the list.

    When you are finished check the yml with the Online YAML Parser.

    Wahoo! Thank you! :D

    A few bugs i've noticed:
    <>For one reason or another, I spawn with a compass when I become a ghost... then when I turn back into a mortal I still have the compass - thus I get a compass every time I die.
    <>Sometimes I seem to not really die - flying wont work and when i jump off a cliff I die a second time. After the second death I am able to revive, but after the revival I am still skinned as a ghost. Very strange...

    Other than that it's great! And neither of those is a huge deal, although the compass bug might be depending on whether or not that happens to everyone, or just me as the admin.
  3. that did the trick, last version works perfekt, even got the sky red and the ghast sound now


    awesome plugin and i love the fact that you can keep your items when you die
    makes it alot more fun to explore and you dont have to be afraid to lose those precious items :p
  4. Offline


    @hedich Thanks. I'm glad I could help :).

    @LucidLethargy Hum, the compass should disappear on rebirth, I'll check that out. Is there a special thing you do when you don't really die? Does it maybe only happen if you die through fall damage or doesn't it matter how you die?
  5. Offline



    I really don't understand... I'm even starting with a fresh essentials and config files. There is no other plugins or folders in my plugins folder but it's not working...
    As soon as I remove essential, it works but it still says to that my home bed is missing or obstructed (but it works ! )
  6. Offline


    @M4xwellou Which version of Essentials are you using btw?
  7. Offline



    latest, I just redownloaded and tested it just to be sure :)
    But same problem... I'm running out of idea, nothing here makes sense x)
  8. Offline


    @M4xwellou [​IMG] .. Ok, maybe the last resort, if you want to zip your whole server folder and send it to me. Perhaps I can find out what's going on.
  9. Offline



    No problem !
    With all the plugins or just with essentials and "Death and rebirth" ?
  10. Offline


    @M4xwellou Everything, craftbukkit, plugins, plugin configurations .. but don't put in the world, that's getting to big.

    as you wish, I'll Pm you with the link in a moment :)

    Is there any way to know where the nearest shrine is?

    Also: this plugin and Heroes don't seem to get along anymore...when I put Heroes in, this plugin stops making people ghosts

    It seems to only be certain classes in heroes that mess this up as well. My Archer class works fine, Ranger does not

    I have narrowed it down to health amounts. I haven't tried anything between 60 and 90 health, but 90 and up do not work

    It's also very errattic
  13. Offline


    @Dothackking At the moment there is no way to find the nearest shrine, but I could add a command for that in the next version. The health should be between 1 and 20, 20 is full health, 0 and the player is dead ;).
    For the Heroes problem I have to check out their code to locate the problem.

    Is there any way to keep them from having a name when theyr'e ghost?
  15. Offline


    I already responded at DevBukkit, but just in case:
    If you mean that they keep their normal names just leave GHOST_NAME blank. If you don't want any displayname, that's not possible at the moment.
  16. Offline


    Can you please make shrine protection toggleable? We have other protection plugins, but this one can't be overriden by beeing admin.
  17. Offline


    Can't wait for the new version, currently there are some bugs as some of my members aren't being turned into ghosts (they just spawn and lose their items!) Strangely some others it does work for...
  18. Offline


    That's odd. Do you have more information on this bug (errors, cause of death, other conditions..)?

    Just to let you guys know: an update is coming soon.
  19. Offline


    Version 2.5.2
    • CB 1337
    • ops can edit shrines
    • shrine protection can be turned off
    • fixed ghosts can open chests
    • placing of signs changed when dying in water (above the water) or by an explosion (at the bottom of the crater)
    • fix (more a workaround) for the permissions problem: you can configure if admins with the * permission are ignored and have nodrop or not
    • fixed a nullpointer while resurrecting another player
  20. Offline


    The config.yml keeps resetting to the defaults when I reset, reload the server which is quite annoying as I want to disable grave signs as they allow the player to be reborn by right clicking on them. The /dar commands don't do anything either.

    Which reminds me, there's a bug where people can right click on their grave signs and be reborn.
  21. Offline


    @Dominhiho If you edit the config use /dar reload afterwards, that way the changes should be saved.
    Resurrecting by clicking the grave is intended (at least if you disabled corpse spawning), that should be the normal way people get back to life.

    I see now, thanks a bunch!
  23. Offline


    Why people respawn on shrines after death? I have enable corpse_spawning and disable binding on shrines
  24. Offline


    Maybe I unintentionally broke that in the last update. Have to check if something is wrong.

    I enabled "spawn on corpses" and "only shrines modes". But when people dies, he respawns near the shrine.
