Quick search revealed that prefabs/player_common.lua has

local function OnPlayerDeath(inst, data)...inst:ListenForEvent("death", OnPlayerDeath)
and components/health.lua has this:

self.inst:PushEvent("death", { cause = cause, afflicter = afflicter })
You might wanna experiment with passing some data to the event.

This is what I found in player_common.lua . I still doesn't understand how to make it work.

If you take a look in eventannouncer.lua, the cause of death needs its own name, else it defaults to shenanigans.

STRINGS.NAMES.SOMETHING = "Something"owner:PushEvent("death", {cause = "something"})
[00:02:13]: [string "scripts/stategraphs/SGwilson.lua"]:1008: Left death state.LUA ERROR stack traceback:    =[C]:-1 in (global) assert (C) <-1--1>    scripts/stategraphs/SGwilson.lua:1008 in (field) onexit (Lua) <1006-1009>    scripts/stategraph.lua:460 in (method) GoToState (Lua) <448-509>    scripts/stategraphs/SGwilson.lua:430 in (field) fn (Lua) <388-434>    scripts/stategraph.lua:398 in (method) HandleEvents (Lua) <389-409>    scripts/stategraph.lua:143 in (method) Update (Lua) <107-146>    scripts/update.lua:209 in () ?

Nope, still error. Are you sure, that 


"Something" and

{cause = "something"}

"something" shouldn't be both written from capital? Anyway it didn't work when I did the exact same words.
