Vanilla Death Chest

The Vanilla Death Chest provides a convenient way to protect your items if you should die in Minecraft. Upon death it takes all of your inventory and stores it in a chest nearby!

This is great if you happen to be exploring far from home or if you’re on a server with other players. If you can’t remember your death location, you’ll get a convenient message that displays the coordinates of the chest.

And there’s a configurable protection over the chests for a period of time so it should be long enough to grab your items before they are vulnerable to stealing.

  3. If you die in the void would a death chest spawn, and if so, where?

  4. so a single chest is 3×9, and so is your inventory. but if you include your hotbar, its 4×9, so not all items will fit in the chest. does it make a double chest?
