Requires the library mod Collective.
Death Backup is a mod which saves the inventory of a player right before their death to a file in the world folder. If a player has cheat-access, they can reload the inventory via the ‘/deathbackup load
sendBackupReminderMessageToThoseWithAccessOnDeath (default = true): When enabled, sends a message to a player when they die and have cheat-access that a backup has been created and can be loaded.
backupReminderMessage (default = “A backup of your inventory before your death has been created and can be loaded with ‘/deathbackup load 0’.”): The message sent to players with cheat-access when ‘sendBackupReminderMessageToThoseWithAccessOnDeath’ is enabled.
/deathbackup – Shows the commands available.
/deathbackup list – Shows a list of the latest death with indices.
Whenever a player dies, their inventory and gear is saved to ‘./world-folder/data/deathbackup/time.txt’. By default a message is sent to the player with a reminder if they have cheat-access, but this can be disabled in the config.
With the command ‘/deathbackup list’ all recent death backups can be seen. Index 0 is always the latest.
Using the ‘/deathbackup load 0’ command to load the latest inventory prior to the latest death.
Another example with items with NBT tags such as enchantments and written books:
The last inventory is loaded without problems by doing ‘/deathbackup load 0’.
