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.

*** New Feature ***
Overflow handling of objects has been added. So when recovering lost items if you fill up before recovering everything the overflow will be placed in a cache at your feet. If for any reason the item cannot be added to the cache(s) it will be put back in the object it was found in.

Enable debugging if your concerned about lost items, the last set of stats will show you if anything was lost.

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.

The ExclusionList is 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 mess up 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 damaged.

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 gfi Personal_Grave 1 0 0

The following is the full path to the grave stone:

** 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 cause the stone to be destroyed once the stone is used.

When UseOnce is set the DelayTimer determines how long until the stone is destroyed. While the stone is on cool down 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 cool down timer, all players will be affected, first come first use.

**** Wild Cards are Back! ****
The ExclusionList now works with the wildcard character '.' you can place it at the beginning or end of your string. You can place one at one end or the other or both.


This example would not recover any resources, anything that had Thatch at the end of the name or the partial work 'Consum' anywhere in the name.

For those looking to do engram over rides the engram for this mod is: EngramEntry_Personal_Grave

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

At times being killed by a sea creature can cause 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.

For all of you worried about picking up eggs and making it easier to hunt certain dinos, just use the exclusion list.
I had done this always for each egg type but ever since you could use wildcards I simply enter ".Egg." without the quotes and you can recover everything except eggs. Prevents "cheating" so to speak.

@Vend currently no, but due to exploits I've been considering changing it.

@van Grunz, I appreciate your input however I'm not looking to get rid of the mod and please don't project your opinion on what I'm saying. I am simply asking if this can receive damage. You can currently use this item to block crouchpoints in game and nothing can be done about it short of admin gun.

PvP destruction should be disabled by default and only enabled via custom INI setting (non-official anyway). This is a mod to take care of your own stuff. Don't use it on PvP if you don't like it.

Yes, if you check the Discussion area I'm sure you will find a conversation with solution.

How about disabling the engram? Normally, an admin should be possible to spawn it in.
