    With the release of the GameAPI, here is a quick mod for those running a server.

    This is the Death Messenger mod. When a player dies, a quick notice is sent to all players informing them who died, how and who killed them. (Only informed from player kills. NPC and POI will come as the API evolves.)

    Installation:
    The mod will not interfere with EAH or other mods.

    Enjoy!

    =============
    1.0.3
    • Updated MIF
    • Added option to disable messages in chat. (Check the Messages.Yaml file.)

    =============
    1.0.2
    • Message is also in chat.
    • Messages are stored in YAML file.
    • Added !MODS to recognise mod.

    No problem. I keep forgetting to update the post to include information on updating the messages.txt.

    First read through and I said to myself "that's really cool!" - which was then followed by a thought "it would be great if this could form part of a battle royale set up in Empyrion". Of course, I have no idea if this is possible, now or in the future, but imagine the fun of 50 players logging into a single playfield, that they not only can kill each other off to reach a winner but could harvest resources and build things to be even more efficient at the carnage... :)

    People are finding the Death Messenger a novel addon. I've made the messages configurable so others can add/remove any messages they would like.

    We have hosted a few battle scenarios and have found it to be quite a fun addition as it announces when you make a kill.

    There should be no problem using this on a rental server. As long as you have access to the Empyrion/Content/Mods folder.

    Quite possibly. I'm not familiar with a hosted configuration.

    Can you write a similar type mod? that reports when players connect and disconnect?

    I love the death notification mod, works great, simple, light weight, it works *GREAT*!!! Thank you!

    Could I bribe you to write a similar mod that announces when players connect? and disconnect?

    I'll love you long time GI.

    Thanks ahead of time!

    No bribe needed. I can add it to this. But are you sure you want this? It can get "chatty".

    Yes please add it!!

    I would recommend to just make a simple ON / OFF , and maybe a feature to make it either a server message (top right) or make it show up in chat.

    I'd really love to see this feature in the mod. Sometimes I don't see people join or leave the server ,and I'm talking to myself. ha.
