Corail Tombstone

" Corail Tombstone keeps you from losing your belongings by dying, with many features of survivability and dimensional teleportation, in a medieval fantasy atmosphere related to the grave's souls. "


When you die, all your lost items are kept in a tombstone  and you receive a Grave's Key allowing you to know the path to your grave (this key can be enchanted to be able to directly teleport to your grave and disappears automatically if the grave doesn't exist anymore).

You just need to click the grave, to automatically equip your armor and recover your lost items.
Hint : to have a tombstone, the rule keepInventory needs to be set to false, and you need at least one item on you (or a drop nearby)

The second part of the mod focus on some magic items requiring Grave's Soul (look at Decorative Graves), and allowing some features related to death and dimensional teleportation (also in commands). This allows to customize the mod with in-game content instead of config options. (example : cancel the xp loss can be done in the config, but it's better to set it with a loss like 25-50% and use the magical scrolls to preserve it)
The mod work fine on server, supports minecraft version 1.8.9 to 1.12.2 and has translations for english & french. (my main language is french)

Check the config file to see all the custom features, Java 8 is required - VanillaFix is an optional dependency

Coming changes : in ~ 2 days (beta)

  • config option to set the required time for a soul check
  • new config category for all contents related to "loots"
  • client config option to display only the minecraft days since the death

  • refactor about time

Beta 3 changes :

This beta is to test the stability of the code, and also to allow players to propose me ideas about the new system, and for balancing adjustments.

  • a new gui allowing you to access a tree of perks (the keybind in "misc" is not defined by default)
    perks are small bonus to unlock related to all the features of tombstone, instead of providing them by default (some of them will be displayed based on what is allowed in the config)
    NB : as it's a beta, you can decrease your perks with right click to get the points back
  • player earns knowledge each time they use a grave's soul, or free a soul from a receptacle (and the number of perk points to spend is based on this knowledge)
  • new command /tbknowledge allowing to change the knowledge of a player
  • voodoo poppet protections can't be added without the adequate perk
  • ghostly shape is nerfed as you now need to unlock some of the features

The decorative graves

The decorative graves are special blocks with a fog particle only during the night.
They can be harvested with shovel/pickaxe and can be engraved with the anvil (and an iron lingot in the second slot).
The decorative graves can be haunted by a soul, depending on your chance (thundering was required in old versions)
The soul stays until used and allows some enchants like magic scroll/tablet, or upgrade the grave's key.

Hint : The advancement/achievement gives you rewards, nearly enough to build a decorative grave.

Known Compatibility

  • Inventory :

    - any mod dropping a special inventory but no auto-equip
    - 'Wearable Backpacks' (the bag is not stored in the grave, but there's a config option allowing to move the backpack near the grave - disabled by default)
  • 'Ender IO', 'Openblocks', 'Cubic Chunks', 'Level Up', 'Cavern 2', 'Skillable' & 'Reskillable'

  • 'Sync' (the grave's keys are correctly tranferred on death)
  • Claimed Area ('FTB Utilities' & 'GriefPrevention plugin', 'Nation plugin')
    -> tombstone can always place the grave, and for the interaction, you can sneak over the grave
  • vanilla spawn protection (allow to click the player's grave in the spawn area on dedicated server)
