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 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 gfi 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.

**** Wild Cards are Back! ****
The ExclusionList now works with the wildcard character '.' you can place it at the begining 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' anywere 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 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.

* 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 the rare case that the steam update files get corrupt it is recommended to verify each server after an update. This doubles the time necessary if an update occours, but I never had problems with that. Just make sure, after the message "update - TRUE", to hit the update button once again, until it says: "update - FALSE". =)

You can run into problems with ASM. If and only IF the download from steam servers is corrupted. There's no way to compensate for that. It's really rare.

ASM is the #1 best mod updating procedure. All others lack in reliability.

There's no need to manage the downloads on their own while running on single server (steam will update it automatically, unfortunately) or a dedicated server as long as you run ARK Server Manger.

Sometimes you can't get a clean download from Steam and most updaters have a tendency to mess up, Ark's updater will go so far as to break good mods :(

Anyhow, if you feel you need a new copy of this mod and your unable to get it installed with whatever manager you are using, grab a copy from my Google share.

You'll find the link in the description.

At least on of your mods is not up2date. Perform an update and verify the files via SteamCMD. You can use ASM to manage your server and its files.

It is telling me "make sure you have the latest updates with any mod on your server" even tho there arent updates.

Playing on genesis, unofficial server.
Mods being used: Super Structures, Upgrade station, Super accessories lite, Super Spyglass, and Auto engrams

Wont run on the server, even tho it was running 2 days ago.

Thanks for looking into it if you do.
