This mod provides a personal Gravestone that will help you recover your lost items (from death).

Craft and place your personal Gravestone to use after you have died. I recommend placing it within a reasonable proximity to a bed.

Tribes can arrange these in a Graveyard fashion. Each stone can only be used by the person that placed it.

Once activated any objects found on all of your corpses or your death caches will be returned to your inventory.

There is a 30 sec cool-down between usages to prevent spamming which could create performance issues, this timer can be adjusted using the game options listed bellow.

* New Feature * * UPDATED the | delimiter has been changed to , **

You can configure an exclusion list in the ini settings, this will allow you specify items that you do not want the stone to recover. The list of items is seperated by type pipe symbol: ,


The above example would prevent the stone from recovering gps and torches.

You can now use a wildcard to enable partial patern matching. The wildcard is: .. (that's dot dot).

You can use the wildcard in one of three ways. Here is an example:

In this example we first exlude any items that have primalitemresource_ as the first part of their item name. Next we exclude any items that has the word consumable anywhere in it's item name and lastly we exclude any item that has wyvern at the end of it's item name.

The ExclusionList is now case insensitive, meaning you don't have to worry about caps. I recommend you continue using them as it improves your ability to manage the data, but if you messup you don't have to worry about it as long as the entry is properly spelled (so it matches the item).

The grave stone will take damage over time so be sure to do regular maintenance.

You will no longer be able to pickup the stone if the timer is running or if it is damged.

If you own multiple stones they will all share the same timer.

A Newly placed stone will inherit the timer from any existing stones for that user.

When items are found a new affect, Flame of Recovery will occur letting you know the stone has started to recover items. Flames will last 5 seconds (longer then it takes to actually recover items).

If no flames show up then no items were found, so nothing will be recovered.

Thanks to Firespark81 for the indirect idea for the Flame of Recovery.

Admin command to summon a personal stone:
cheat giveitem "Blueprint'/Game/Mods/DeathRecovery/PrimalItemStructure_Personal_Grave.PrimalItemStructure_Personal_Grave'" 1 0 0

** The following settings are OPTIONAL!! **
** Do not add a setting to your ini unless you need to change **
** it from the default. The following settings are NOT default **
** They are examples of what you MIGHT do with them. **

Setting options for GameUserSettings.ini


To change the decay timer on the stone set DelayTimer to the number of seconds you desire.

1 min = 60
5 min = 300
30 min = 1800
1 hour = 3600
1 day = 86400

To make the stone decay in one day (RL) set the DecayMultiplier to 0.142857

I don't recommend having the stone decay faster then 3 days.

If you need to remove stones quickly then I recommend you use MaxLifeSpan.

MaxLifeSpan is set by choosing how many seconds to stone can exist.

DisablePickup=true will disable the option that allows the stone to be picked up.

UseOnce=true will cuase the stone to be destroyed once the stone is used.

When UseOnce is set the DelayTimer determins how long until the stone is destroyed. While the stone is on cooldown it can't be used.

ThereCanOnlyBeOne=true will prevent the player from placing more than one stone. (this will have no affect on existing stones).

UseGlobalTimer=true will cause all stones in the game to use the same cooldown timer, all players will be affected, first come first use.

********************* WARNING **********************
The game deletes any corpse or loot cache that goes outside the map boundries. How agressive this is depends on the map designer.

At times being killed by a sea creature can cuase your inventory to be removed/deleted from your corpse.

This mod cannot recover items that have been deleted by the game.

* Flame of Recovery may not be showing when stone is activated and items are recovered. If this occurs you need to pickup the stone and re-place it.

The mod is free and comes with limited support (when I'm available).

@Logos13 perhaps you crafted the wrong stone? the default gravestone has no features.

Hello, i crafted the grave then I placed it close to the bed but after dying impossible to use. The only two option are rename or destroy.

@Honey did they run debug and get the same results 0 corpses and 0 death caches? Can you run a test for me, go up to a stone, open your inventory and drop all. then activate the stone. If that doesn't work you need to re-install the mod on the server. If that does work then users having problems should re-install locally.

@Manalo Hey, I sadly must steal your time again. So many user reported today about loosing their items without any option for recovering it. They all died from different causes. 1 was killed by a trike. The other one wanted to do suicide and jumped down a cliff. Thank you for your time.

@Manalo Thank you very much, he was indeed being eaten by a Dinosaur. :) Since he didn't mention it to me i wasn't sure about it, but now it makes totally sense. Thanks for helping out! :D

@NetcodeNOOB I'm sorry your having such troubles getting steam to download and install correctly. You've even gone way beyond what you have had to do and delt with the install/download of all that content. Unfortunatly there is only two things you can do at this point. Continue to delete the mod files and the steam download cache until it finally works or get the files from a friend.

@Honey did he die in the water? Sea creatures and Lightning drakes are reported to destroy a persons inventory some of the time. Notice the first two entries? number of corseps found and number caches found? 0. If it doesn't exist the mod can't recover it.
