This mod allows your items to be stored within a corpse of your dead body rather than at risk of despawning after a few minutes. This way your items won’t disappear after you die and you can loot your old body to get them back!
No matter what happens to cause your death, your items will remain safe. So whether you die by explosion or lava that would normally destroy items as you drop them, this mod will prevent that as your dead body is basically invulnerable to harm.
This is great for accidental mining deaths when lava suddenly shows up or if creepers happen to sneak up on you. All you need to do is go find your dead body and right-click to take your stuff back. The only caveat is that some items that can take damage like armor and tools will be slightly harmed.
Then once you’ve looted your body, you’ll need to rid of it somehow. If you hit the body 3 times with a shovel it will disappear!
