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.

*** The wildcard feature does not work for names in the exclusion list **

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).

two ways. 1) you can actualy select and copy/paste it or 2) you can screen shot it. Both can then be posted/linked in the bugs thread and that will help in reviewing your problems.

Is there a way to "save" the debug output so we can send it to you?
Manalo  [author] Nov 11 @ 2:33pm 
It shows statistics. The only value is when you are having problems and you want me to know what's going on when you encounter the problem.

what does debug mode do

@Ickythump it means the files are bad that were installed. Basicly the download that steam did is bad and you'll have to redo it. To do that delete the local files for this mod and then go into steam and delete your download cache. after run ark and let the mod install again. Rinse and repeat until you finnaly get a working copy of the mod. This problem is common with all mods that are downloaded from Steam.

I just added this mod for the first time today and my game is crashing whenever I try to use the mod for the first time. Any suggestions? I see the text saying that corpses were retrieved but then immediately get a crash popup. The corpses were already in my save I think when I added the mod if that matters.

it's just a simple object that is added to the game. it doesn't change anything about the game.
