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.

I have reports of incompatabilies with HG mods affecting placement. If you've used HG mods with this mod please let me know.

* 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).

oh yeah I hate that!

Thanks for the response. Just opted to look up the spawn codes for the items I lost instead. Got trapped in a BS cycle with an alpha that led to a stack of 4 or 5 corpses deep in progressively more impossible places to reach beacuse spawn locations kept getting blacked out. Good times.

Your still getting a bad copy. It's aslo very possible you've been affected the the outage. The ability to download files from Steam has been impared throught the day. This has resulted in wrong versions and and damaged files.

I suggest you try again tomorrow and if that still fails contact a friend that has a working copy.

Hi Manalo. I am experiencing a CTD whenever I attempt to use the gravestone..I have tried deleting the mod and clearing the cache, allowing it to redownload etc. etc. as you have posted. Here is the crash log if it is helpful

@Maroujo it means the files in the steam cache are corrupted and it keeps installing the same corrupted files over and over. Go into steam properties click on download and clear the download cache. Then go up to the top of the page and repair your library folder. Then delete the mod again and let it re-install. If that's not enough get a copy from someone you know as it means the copy on the steam server your downloading from is bad or the connection to that server is bad.

Hi. I tried using it and every time (no matter how many corpses I left behind to try) it says there is 2 corpses with no item on it and then the game crashes. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the mod and it didn't help. (Also, this is the only mod I play with, so no other mod is corrupted)
Does anyone know why?
Manalo  [author] Jul 7 @ 11:25am 
then the mod files are damaged or another mod before it has damaged files. delete the mod files and reinstall.

Can anyone tell me the right text to exclude the specimen implant from recovering? I can’t figure it out.
