I'm trying to make a Among Us map in Minecraft Edu, but I can't find a way to detect if the player was hit by another player, because I don't want to show that "Player was killed by Player", because it would make too obvious that someone was killed. I tried using the instant health effect to detect when the player was healed, but it didn't work.

    I'm not certain if this works in the education edition, but there is a gamerule command to turn off death messages: /gamerule showdeathmessages false

  • That's exactly what I need, thank you. I should have searched the commands before asking. Dec 30, 2020 at 11:53
