Memento Mori

Description
A mysterious craftable item that guides you back to the site of your last death!

Craft a Memento Mori with your bare hands and 1000 pixels. Simply hold it and follow the unnatural essence back to your corpse.

--

- Memento Mori begins tracking your deaths after it's been installed. If you are holding the skull and it's not doing anything, you either have not died in that world or haven't died in that world since you installed this mod.

- Design notes: I wanted a fun, organic way of letting players more easily find their dropped items, without trivializing death completely. This item comes with a small pixel cost and occupies a hand while you try to navigate your way back. FORTUNATELY, it also doubles as a light source when you are near your corpse, (and a very small amount of light when far away) to help you avoid/deal with whatever killed you in the first place.

Please leave feedback and other ideas in the comments. Hope you enjoy!

Fantastic mod, really! It indicates just left/right, but an objective arrow points at the death place on screen when you are close enough to see it! A must for saving hours of play!
Thanks to the modder!

I just found a situation in which it doesn't work. I'm not certain if it is because I died in a moon or because I died to the Erchius Horror.

Just posting here that this mod does still work (I'm only using enhanced storage/food stack for the other mods). Why an item like this wasn't incorporated into the game is beyond me. Thank you for this mod it makes survival a lot more enjoyable, even if it still sucks dying deep down in a planet.

This mod looks cool, but somehow nullifies the effects of:

A fix would be grand.
Sweet mod!

@bikes_and_beer.exe: It is Frackin Universe, because this item is already added to it under Metaphysics research tree.
