You Were Slain

Customize the death screen unlike ever before!

You Were Slain allows you to edit multiple elements of the death screen. There are lots of features, including:

  • A Terraria-styled respawn delay
  • Ability to change text colors
  • Allow for the text to fade in
  • Hide your HUD upon death, for more a more cinematic effect(it then unhides the HUD upon respawning)
  • Hide the respawn and or title screen buttons
  • Send a chat message including your death coordinates(only to yourself)
  • Custom death sound effect which can be edited with a resource pack(silent by default)
  • And more!

You Were Slain also allows for you to edit most of the text shown on the death screen without the use of a resource pack. This was done to easily allow for quicker customization.
