The lifesteal addon is based on the plugin from the Lifesteal SMP, where whenever you die, you lose a heart, when you kill a player, you gain a heart! This addon is updated to support the latest versions of Minecraft (for now) and addon features include; Stealing hearts, Crafting hearts, Withdrawing hearts, and even reviving dead players who lose all their hearts!
