This module causes a zombie to spawn at a player's location upon death.


Undead Players are spawned at the player's death point. They can pick-up some items such as armor and weapons, but will have to be killed to get the items back. Players with strong armor and weapons may return to the site of their death to find a rather strong zombie to defeat.

An Undead Player's name is visible from a great distance and through solid blocks, much like another player. This can help players locate where they recently died, perhaps getting there before their inventory despawns.

Technical Details

Undead Players are always a regular zombie (not a zombie villager or baby). They are persistent, and won't despawn naturally. The Zombie can wear armor and will hold the strongest weapon they find.
