- Unlike other Custom Items, player Heads are completely personalized to the person who dropped it. This means that they are named after the player, and show the player's current skin.Aikar's Head
When a player dies, there is a 15% chance that their head will drop. This feature can be turned off by using the /ps (Player Settings) command. Head drops apply to all worlds, with the exception of the PvP Arenas on SMP6. At the PvP Arenas, your head has a 15% chance to be given to the player that last hurt you, as long as both you and them have PvP head drops turned on. PvP head drop settings can be changed in the Player Settings (/ps).
A common technique players can use to collect their own head is to jump off the Wastelands spawn, without having any respawn set. This way, the players spawn right above where they died, and can walk down the stairs to collect their head.
With the Player Settings update, you can change if your head drops or not on all servers, or per server. This means you could have head drop off for SMP4, but on for all the other servers. To change your Player Settings, type in the command /ps in-game.
EMC has a variety of custom-coded items for many uses.
