    well, as you might know, setting it to do freeze damage makes the game show the train-ran-you-over death icon instead of the regular skull and bones icon.

    so i was wondering if you could extend this to something else.

    e.g. making it display a lead weight if you were crushed by something heavy falling on you in a custom map.

    i guess what i'm wondering is if the death icon is something that can be defined by the map or if it's built into the game itself

    As far as I know

    Freeze=Train
    Fall="...fell to a clumsy death"
    Blast=Gib
    Anything Else="...said 'farewell, cruel world!'"

    Actually, I think anything else is just your name and a skull.

    hmmm

    then what causes Farewell, cruel world?

    Suicide by self-damage?

    so you can't actually create new death messages/icons?

    pretty much.

    you'd have to modify the game's files.

    There's a hidden one that the developers didn't tell you about, it displays a figure of Rick Astley and then it plays a little jingle.
