[TUTORIAL] Custom death messages
Sat, 08/21/2021 - 13:44 (edited)

This feature is now included in core, custom code is no longer needed

 

Define the damage source

First, create a procedure and choose the block name deal damage with source, input a number for amount (it would not matter as the code will be changed) and click on GENERIC.

Then, find this line of code:

entity.attackEntityFrom(DamageSource.GENERIC, (float) amount);

and change it to this:

DamageSource source = new DamageSource("sourcename").setDamageBypassesArmor();

You will need to rename source and sourcename yourself

 

Deal the damage

Below that line, add this:

entity.attackEntityFrom(source,amount);

Change amount to the amount you want the damage to deal (1 heart = 2) and source should be the same as defined above

 

Now we need to add the translation keys

Head over to localization on the sidebar and click on add localization entry

In the popup input box (Key name), type

death.attack.sourcename

Where sourcename should be the same as defined above

In the localized text field, type:

%1$s whatever you want the death message to be

%1$s will be translated to the player name

So if you typed

%1$s died from MCreator

And the player is Mike, the death message will be "Mike died from MCreator"

Heads Up! You will also need to add a second death message that appears when the player has been attacked by another entity in the last few seconds before death:

Example:

%1$s died from diabetes whilst fighting %2$s

I have a schedule of things to add, I am amazed how after all this time I still have to repeat this.

There are over 100 tickets open here, and a few 100 in my internal TODO backlog. Give me some slack, lol.

I believe you could understand the problem is not in one ticket, but the fact there are many of them and I can only work one by one...

Klemen has things to do, that's why I made the tutorial

Klemen, Don't add this in Mcreator, so as to keep some mods unique
