    Cenotaph - A Dead Man's Chest plugin
    Version: 2.1.2

    Plugin Dependencies
    Lockette (Optional) OR LWC (Optional)

    Cenotaph is a fork of the most excellent Tombstone by Drakia. As he has stopped development, I decided to take it up and add some features I wanted (and that some users on the forums have requested).

    Download, Source, and Bug Reports/Feature Suggestions

    What's a Cenotaph?
    A Cenotaph is a monument to a dead person who is either buried elsewhere or whose body is not available for burial. If you think about it, it exactly fits the situation - there's no body, since you've respawned ;)

    When your players die, depending on how you have things set up, their items will be placed in a Dead Man's Chest for safekeeping. You can require that your players carry around chests and signs of their own at all times, or simply have the chests appear on death. You can also secure the chests with LWC3 or Lockette.

    More specifically:
    Show Spoiler

    • If the player is carrying a chest when they die, place that chest and fill it with as much of their inventory as possible
    • If the player is allowed, and is carrying two chests, a large chest will spawn to catch all of their inventory
    • Possible for specific groups/players to be given free chests with no need to carry one with them
    • Any items that won't fit in the chest will still drop to the ground!
    • Supports the Permissions plugin, will default to allowing everyone to use basic cenotaph if not available
    • Supports LWC for chest AND sign protection if it is installed
    • Supports Lockette for chest protection if it is installed
    • Configurable timeout for LWC unprotection
    • Configurable timeout for destruction of cenotaphs, works in unloaded chunks as well
    • Quickloot support, right click the sign on a cenotaph to loot all items in it (your chest only!)
    • Place a sign on top of the chest stating the players name and time of death
    • The ability to point your compass at your cenotaph
    • Customizable sign messages on the cenotaph
    • Admin commands for management

    See the default config file on Github for annotations and explanations.

    Config notes
    • If you are going to be giving your players a free chest/sign, but don't want them to be able to retrieve those as extra items, set the noDestroy option in the Cenotaph config file.
    • If you do set the noDestroy option, it is highly recommended that you set a timeout for Cenotaph removal, because even once LWC is disabled the chest is still not destroyable by any means other than quicklooting it or an admin with permissions breaking it.
    • With noDestroy enabled, if a player dies without a sign, then their chest will be indestructible until it is removed by Cenotaph itself.
    • It is not recommended to use the noDestroy option without the destroyQuickLoot option

    @Drakia: Cenotaph was originally Tombstone, by Drakia (TheDgtl). Many thanks to him for his hard work on the original plugin.
    @Acru: Thanks to Acru, the developer of Lockette, as well. His help getting the Lockette integration working as I stumbled by way though picking up Java was invaluable. :)

    Is there any difference to tombstone? Only Lockette-support?
  3. Offline


    Basically yes, Lockette support has been added since the original author refused

    What version of LWC are you running? 3?

  7. Offline


    Thought it might be - not sure if Cenotaph supports LWC 3 yet, see quote below:
  8. Offline


    could you update against the latest LWC?

  9. Offline


    any progress on lwc 3.3 support?
  10. Offline


    Ugh. I'm so sorry for the silence, everyone. Old laptop died. I'm on the new one now, and Eclipse is downloading as I type this. I'm hoping to have a build against Permissions 3, LWC3, and RB953 tonight or tomorrow. Look for a few rapid-fire updates.

    Great news! What about timeouts on the lockette'd cenotaphs, or requiring players carry a sign to get it lockette'd?
  12. Offline


    I've swapped branches 1.6 and 1.7. 1.6 is now "additional highly requested features," including your two requests, and 1.7 is now economy integration. I'll get to the smaller but fun features faster now. :)

    Updated! :D

    Version 1.5.3
    *Re-enable compass integration (Thanks, @Zarius!)
    *Build against Craftbukkit RB953
    *Build against LWC 3.3
    *Build against Permissions 3

    Thank you just tested it today, as an admin (players not tested yet), Cb974, permissions 3, lwc 3.30. its working great :)
  14. Offline


    I haven't tested this build as much as I'd like, but I don't want to sit on the feature, either D:

    Version 1.5.4
    *Custom messages on signs (you will require a config file update)
    *Final 1.5 branch release

    @Drakia also added signs to Tombstone, and I used his cause-of-death detection code in Cenotaph. Credit and thanks for it go to him 100%.

    hey i am just testing this out and the sign isnt using my config. i tried this

    Line1: "Here lies"
    Line2: "{name}"
    Line3: "who died from"
    Line4: "{reason}"

    and i still get


    is there anything else i should do? ill continue to test it out...

    thanks for this plugin btw its a lifesaver, and also a random mission generator (when someone dies in a rough place we all have to band together to go retrieve the chest) =) tons of fun usually...

    Happy you enjoy the plugin! :) Can you post your config file to and then post the link here? (If you'd rather not publicly post it, can you email it to [email protected]?) I'll use it to test.

            Line2: "Died at {time}"

        a Fall
    Better yet: Options to set the date and time formats in config.yml

    Also: Custom messages for {reason}

    This is amazing! Thanks so much ^_^
  25. Offline



    I can do the custom time and date formats. I don't think I want to open the can of worms that would be the custom death reason messages, though. Maybe sometime after I have a bunch of the other planned features hammered out. :)

    Happy you enjoy the plugin! :)

    So recently allot of random blocks have been being locked. I think its the cenotaph plugin locked blocks around the chest when said person dies, and then glitches and doesint remove the block lock. (LWC) is the lock being deleted properly after the chest is removed?

  27. Offline


    I can live with that. It's a great plugin already and time and date formatting is what I want most :)

    My players can broke [private] on cenotaph chest, it's normal ? (But not on the normal [private] chest)
  29. Offline


    I dont know if I missing this or if it isnt part of the mod yet, but is there a way to have cento mod automatically make a chest for a players dropped items, instead of having them carry a chest and sign with them everywhere? I know it says you can set it up that way in the features, but im not seeing an option for it anywhere..
  30. Offline


    I have a slight conflict with the AdminCmd Plugin. There i'm able to use the command /vulcan which allowes a player to cause explosions.
    However, when the player gets himself killed it says that a chest is created, but when i get there next time there is no box and all items are lying on the ground.

    My guess is, that the chest is created slightly before the explosion and gets destroyed.

    Edit: i also had the problem, that there where i died where chests everywhere so that there was no place for a new chest. My items are gone now, can't find a box or anything else :(

    Is there any way you could send me the 953 version?
