Need a server to play on?
GameServerApp (GSA) is a very good server hosting service, with a good support team. If that support team isn\\\'t avaliable, they also have a helpful discord community. They are also very easy to get started with your server, I got mine up in a few minutes.

seems like it also saves on death. The number of saves doesnt seem to be working as well. there is more than 5 saves per player as well.

I'm playing on single player and after having all my gear wiped from hitting the climbing bug I'd love a mod like this to work. Except I can't find a way for it to work.

Heya! Love the mod, when it works. It works well on my Nitrado server, but in single player I have not yet managed to get the mod UI to appear in the pause menu.
Will there be a "Forced" way to open the UI in the future, or is this bug something that is known and being worked on?

Thanks for looking into it!

I've been trying to work on it in the past few updates, but so far have had no luck for some reason, I know other mods do it, yet still no luck.

Is there a way to make it so you keep folders when you die? I like to organize my inventory and every time I die I have to re-organize it. Thanks for all your hard work!
