Mod Suggestion: Death Helper

Post by Cymas on Sun Jun 05, 2016 7:04 am

Workshop

Summary:

Corpse Finder and Suicide Potion.
Find corpses and death caches easily with the Corpse Finder. Drink a Suicide Potion when you are stuck, or depressed lol.
This mod is clean and stackable, doesn't touch core files. Works in both single and multiplayer.

*Now also retrieves bugged corpses that glitch under the world/ground*
To do this, use the corpse finder while standing over your corpse location where you see the light beacon. It will extract the corpse and drop the death cache of your items on the ground above the location.
You should try use on flat ground instead of uneven terrain to clearly see the ground markers.

Since many other death beacon mods failed or are broken, i've set out to make one that actually works.
Safe to load in any order and remove anytime without losses. It does not mess with core files in any way, but uses a unique method to detect corpses and death caches. Also ensures server performance is not affected, and only the player who uses the finder will see the beacon lights on the corpse/cache position, thus balanced for pvp/e.
Pink waypoint markers will appear leading towards your corpse or cache. You can only find all corpses or cache that belong to you or your tribe. Only these small ground markers can be seen by other nearby players.
The corpse beacons are green when very far and will turn red as you get nearer. Also an orbital light beacon swirls in the sky above it shows for 10 secs to spot easily.
Both engrams cost 0 points to learn. Costs 1 stone to craft corpse finder. 10 sec cooldown for finder and 5 sec cooldown for potion. Cannot transfer to others, only discarded. Crafting them will not give exp, prevents abuse for fast leveling Razz
Note that Suicide potion cannot be used while swimming or standing in water, but it can be used while falling or floating/stuck in air or rocks. This is intended.
Roleplay version without suicide potion and ground markers can be found here DH AA

I forwarded this idea to the admin oasis, dying in a stable game where we don't have glitches often is one thing. But so many people die from things beyond even the games control that arent fair deaths such as lag or world holes or numerous other bugs. I think having something like this could really even out the playing field between us and the bugs.
