Deathswap Ultimate! πŸ’€

Based on the original game by Sethbling this version of Deathswap can be added to any world and played with an infinite amount of players! You must try to defeat the other players by setting a trap so when you swap positions they die. Last to survive wins!Β 

This showcase video sums up the features of the pack (V1.0.0) and includes a trailer for the addon! Recommend you give it a watch:

Huge shoutout to all my friends who helped bug test! You guys are the best πŸ˜€

By default, you swap every 5 minutes. You can change your team by stepping on the appropriate carpet in the lobby and you can then clicking the start button to begin. The countdown gives you a message in the last 10 seconds, at 30 seconds and at each minute. Everything you need to know is covered in the short video above. It explains how to change the countdown and also admin commands which you can use – don’t worry no commands need to be typed when using the addon. It can just be used to alter the timing of the countdown or to end the game early.

Update V2.0

This showcase video covers all the changes/bug fixes in V2.0 in detail:

Main Changes and Bug Fixes in V2.0:

  • There is now a chest in the lobby (Charlie Chest) and any items you put into it will be given to all players when you start the game
  • There is a Deathswap sidebar which lists how many people are online, how many spectators or joined players there are AND shows the number of seconds left before the next swap (this is only if you have the countdown enabled in the behaviour pack options) See below image.
  • There is a command block which provides credits and instructs you on how to play the game and covers the features of the pack.
  • Other minor changes

Bug Fixes:

  • Players with lower-end devices could be put in an unloaded chunk and die from fall damage as their resistance runs out before the world has loaded. (It now ensures you are teleported to the ground and you now have 30 seconds of resistance instead of 15 seconds. You also now get teleported within 8 chunks so assuming your render distance is above that you shouldn’t have issues loading chunks around the lobby anyway)
  • Players who have died could spam the start button which would spam an error message into the chat and annoy the players in the game
  • The lobby would sometimes fail to load in. This is partly due to the game not loading all the chunks around the player – however, you should find that you spawn on the lobby platform when generating a fresh world on a lower-end device. 
  • Other minor bug fixes

I also decided to record a development video of the addon (This is as of V1.0.0) so if this is something that interests you here ya go:

Any questions the best place to ask is on my discord server/youtube video rather than in the comments on MCPEDL as I don’t check them as often as don’t get notifications for them! Enjoy some screenshots! πŸ˜€

(Just a reminder it works with infinite players)

(We used the emote from finding diamonds for the above screenshot to make their limbs appear separated. Muahahaha)

(If you make it to the nether you opponents are pretty much defeated already)

    It looks cool

    But the problem is that I don’t have any friends to play ths with so I can’t really tell what it is like

  2. Nightblade45612 says:

    Instead of needing creative to spectate you should give the players the mayfly ability

  3. Scommander says:

    Important for Mobile MCPDL App: I’ve accidentally uploaded the wrong version for the addon for the app as of R2.0.3. Unfortunately, I cannot change it until it is updated. So for now please use this link for R2.0.3: http://www.mediafire.com/file/8wgtjjr6rozupnn/Deathswap_Ultimate_R2.0.3.mcpack/file
    Sorry about this – will fix it ASAP. Alternatively, you can get all the updated links on my discord! πŸ™‚

  4. Guest-8833584106 says:

    I played this add-on with a friend! And we had a lot of fun! Thanks for publishing the add-on!

  5. Guest-1546018139 says:

    This is a great addon, the best I’ve found in a long time!

  6. Scommander says:

    Hello again! I’ve just uploaded V1.0.1 which should fix all the bugs which have been reported aaaaand adds a few new features πŸ˜‰ It should be on MCPDL within the next day or two – however if you would really like to get the updated version RIGHT NOW the download (and all my pack downloads) are available on my Discord. The new features are basically just a sidebar with information related to the game and a chest in the lobby which is cloned to your position once the game starts so you can start with some items if you wish. Thank you for all the support! πŸ™‚

  7. Guest-2834345956 says:

    This addon is really amazing theese people are just jealous because of how well you made it also i found a bug which if the lobby is above water you will spawn in water to fix it you have to switch to creative and fly there

    • Scommander says:

      Thank you for notifying me of the bug. I’ve just uploaded a update to the add-on which should fix almost all the issues people are having – including this one (I hope… It’s quite hard to reproduce but I think I fixed it) πŸ™‚

  8. Scommander says:

    Hello people! So there have been a few minor bugs which have been discovered and I’m in the process of fixing them. Some include:
    – Spectators being able to spam to start button
    – Low-end devices not always loading terrain in time and falling to their death after resistance has ended (usually only happens when there is a lot of players playing)

    I’m also looking to add a scoreboard to the side which includes the timer and shows how many players and spectators are currently in the game. Hoping to implement this tomorrow so it should be released by Wednesday if not sooner – but I cannot guarantee a release time for it. Thanks for the support y’all have given me for my content so far πŸ™‚

  9. WatchoutMaps says:

    I played with my brother and I made it Successfully to the ground but my brother stayed chillin in the sky, all this hype for nothing. Plzz fix I like how there is a lobby and everything. If you can fix it plz tell me so I can change my rating πŸ™‚

    • Scommander says:

      How do you mean chillin in the sky? It may be the case that their game chunks hadn’t loaded in yet? I’ve done a lot of testing and I know it definitely works πŸ™‚
      What platform are you on?

      • WatchoutMaps says:

        Sorry for the wait, by chilling in the sky I mean he was stuck floating in the air, and his chunks weren’t loading but I don’t know if that was the problem. I fell to the ground even though my chunks weren’t loaded until a second later. I’m on mobile, android to be specific!

        • Scommander says:

          It’s a bug I’m aware of! It’s due to the game lagging however I think I prevent people from falling to their deaths if their chunks don’t load by the time the resistance has ended – so not a perfect solution but it should improve the situation. I’ll also shrink the distance you get spread so it’s within 10 chunks so in theory all the chunks you are teleported to should be loaded if your render distance is above 10 when you join the game. Thanks for letting me know πŸ™‚

        • Scommander says:

          This should be fixed in V1.0.1 which will be out in the next day or two whenever MCPDL accepts it πŸ™‚

  10. Guest-3776716113 says:

    so is this a map or a addon

  11. Guest-9737336220 says:

    This pack is really laggy and when I swap with my friend, it makes no sense because I can’t see anything. Any way you can change that?

    • Guest-7810605413 says:

      Its because when u swap, the chunk that your friend in, u havent load that chunk yet so thats why it lagi hope this helps

      • Scommander says:

        Unfortunately that is a problem with the game and not the pack πŸ™
        I’ve played it with 6 players online and I can guarantee it works fine it can just take a little while to load – especially as I’m assuming you are on mobile? It’s one of the reason that you only get spread within 300 blocks so you don’t load a new area from scratch. I could look at reducing that so you get spread closer to the lobby area – the issue being players are more likely to end up next to each other. Open to what everyone thinks about this change? πŸ™‚

    • Scommander says:

      I’m just assuming you’re on mobile as I’ve had console friends help play test and they didn’t run into any issues πŸ™‚

    • Scommander says:

      This limitation of the game should be improved in my V1.0.1 of the add-on which should appear in a day or two. It cannot be entirely fixed however I don’t think you should run into any issues after this update 🀞

  12. Guest-3455967425 says:

    Heyyy so i rly wan to play this but it says failed to import because the pack manifest could not be found and something about the format_version being wrong.. How do i fix this??

  13. Guest-3110168301 says:

    this is the first deathswap ive played that can have more than two players.

    • Scommander says:

      That was one of my main reasons to do it! Also the fact that the add-on versions used commands to start the game – so it thought I’d give it a crack at creating one which got around those issues πŸ˜€

  14. Scommander says:

    I think I misscheduled the upload of this add-on with the showcase video. The video will premiere in about an hour from now so sorry if you are here early and the showcase video isn’t out yet πŸ™‚
