Death Inventory Keeper

Description
Keep your items when you die: Automatically recover your items and folders when you respawn after death.


Survivor default items are not kept, they are left in the death bag (to avoid cluttering your inventory with duplicates of them).

Fully stackable, no load order requirements.

No setup necessary, add the mod and it works.

You can safely add/remove the mod at any time. However, there is a special case that can happen when removing, see Adding/removing the mod below for more information.

Admin accessible archive of deaths, restore items from any recent death. All items are saved to the archive (and restorable) regardless of item keeping settings.

Other features not enabled by default: PVP mode, XP loss upon death, XP loss recovery item, player reset (level/stat/engram) upon death, death injury, reduced health when respawning after death, hair loss upon death, thieves stealing items and setting up campsites, teleporting, grave recovery.


Known issues
In single player game, the items are not shown in the folders when you respawn. If you quit to main menu and go back to your single player game, the items are then shown in the folders.

Configuration

For details about the configuration options, see the Discord server below.

Current configuration is written to the server log upon server start.

Default GameUserSettings.ini settings are in short:
Keep all items and item folders. No death penalties or any other fancy stuff.



Adding/removing the mod

It is always safe to add this mod.


When removing this mod, make sure nobody is dead with items they want to keep, ie. they have respawned if they have died. This is because the items that are kept for the currently-dead-and-not-respawned players are only accessible by this mod (they are saved in DeathInventoryKeeper.sav -file).

If the mod is removed while someone is dead with items they want to keep, then the items can be recovered with either re-adding this mod and then restoring from the archive, or the following old-skool procedure:
  • 1. Make sure the players whose items need recovering are dead.
  • 2. Re-add the mod.
  • 3. Now, when the players then respawn with the mod active, they get their kept items.
