    Hey everyone! Sorry I got super inactive over the past 2.5 or so months! For some reason I stopped getting watch messages and did not realize how active the topic had gotten during my absence. I'm going to make more frequent releases, especially with the magic that is Spout renewing my interest in Bukkit.

    This plug-in adds lives to players. When you die a life is subtracted, but when you respawn you will still have your full inventory. If you had no lives, you stuff is dropped as normal where you died and you spawn with nothing.

    • Players can keep stuff if they die.
    • Use iConomy or BOSEconomy to buy lives! (iConomy 4 AND iConomy 5 compatible)
    • Optional punishment for dying (Loose money in the economy.)
    • Infinite lives option
    • Optional Spout notifications
    • MySQL or Flatfile storage engine
    • PermissionsBukkit support
    • A great way to make your server creative and still have a challenge!

    • playerlives.buy: Determines if the player can buy lives with the economy.
    • playerlives.checkothers: Determines if the player can check other people's life count
    • playerlives.change: Determines if the player can change their or other's lives (This applies to set, add, and subtract.)
    Other notes:
    Currently, Flatfile only saves when the server is stopped (properly) or reloaded, so a crash can cause lives to go back to when the server started.

    Any comments or questions are highly appreciated!

    I'm using the Jdbc MySQL driver since I couldn't find anything Bukkit specific.

    In the config file, there should be several db*** options, make sure you have a line that says
    And the other db*** options reflect your database server's settings. (Other options listed in main topic.)


    Two things weird about that error:
    1) I don't have a line 457 in version 1.4.1
    2) That error implies it failed to hook into iConomy 4.65, 1.4.1 should try 5.0 and then 4.65 (and I belive other 4.xx versions.) Are you running an iConomy even older than 4.65? 0.o

    Also, are you sure you didn't download the latest stable? You need to download the latest BETA on the download page (Which is listed under older/other downloads) I should probably make that more clear on the download page...
  3. Works now!


    - permissions node + command to give Live(s) to another player, they are then removed from your own Lives count of course.

    - some method to award lives other than purchase. For example: a command to imbue a bookcase with a Live. Once a play finds and right-clicks the case, he gains the Life and it is then removed from the bookcase. Thus also an admin command to charge a bookcase with X lives.

    See, I need more plugins like this, so there are actually things to spend money on in game.

    How does this work with multiple worlds? If I buy a life in my main world, then move to the nether, do the lives still carry over?

    Totally want this mod but we have many different worlds and I need to know if it can handle them. This would be replacing TombStone if it handles multi world OK :D

    Yeah, I'll probably re-purpose the /givelives command for that and use something else for it...

    Yeah, that is something I've been meaning to do for a while. I remember finding a spell like that in the Buxville library long ago. (Don't play anymore though - sorry!)

    Thanks =)

    I have not specifically tested it with multiple worlds, but I do not know of any reason why it would care since the plugin is currently multiworld agnostic. I won't be doing anything with multi-world stuff as I anticipate that part of Bukkit may change with official Nether in the 1.6 update.

    I think I must be missing something. How do I change the cost per life and the default value? I saw the config commands but I only have the jar and the .db file. I think I must be missing something?

    @Elvis, like @hofec said, use the latest beta.

    Do you have the latest beta? It is smarter about checking if the config file exists and creating it.

    I will asap. Pretty busy with my company here ;)

  26. Offline


    Is iConomy starting up correctly? (as in your server stats on start up that iConomy is loaded, you can also look through the log to see)

    Really do wonder when this plugin will be updated and when bugs and such will be finished. Was looking forward to adding this to my server. D:
