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)

Check the config file to see all the custom features of this mod. Java 8 is required.

The mod work fine on server, supports minecraft version 1.8.9 to 1.12.2 and has translations for english, french, dutch and german. (my main language is french)

Depending on how i'll get feedbacks on 1.10.2, i'll continue to update this version.

Coming Changes in release 2.9.5 : in ~ 2 days

  • allows to activate player's graves by sneaking (to have a way to avoid anti-griefing mods)
  • adds a param entity for the commands teleportdiscovery & teleportvillage (and so they can be used now in console)
  • disables the shadow step particles for player in first person (on themself only)
  • add the mod VanillaFix as optional dependency
  • ghostly shape provides a night & aquatic vision + Scroll of True Sight (the fog is intentional)

  • improvments on translation (mainly to fit with coming 1.13) -> nearly finished (in way to be able to change them easily in the future)
  • prevents others mods to remove graves (with set air)

Some changes in release 2.9 :

  • Book Of Disenchantment : strips the enchantments of an item (with a grave's soul)
  • force grave to spawn with any anti-griefing mod (and a config option to disable this)
  • client config option (disabled by default) to skip the respawn screen (except in hardcore, and by using the Gui event)
  • list of location (+range) where graves don't spawn with a custom message when this happens, mainly for some modpacks arenas (the list is in the config folder with an example in it)
  • new command /tbrecovery <saveallplayers|saveplayer <player>|loadplayer<player> <save>>
    -> to manually backup all players (or one), or to rollback a player from an old save (use 'tab' for easy completions)
    -> the datas are readables & saved in world folder (to fit with world backup) & use ThreadedFileIOBase
    + config options to allow to backup the players automatically (max 5 saves by playerId, and the default value enables this feature every 60 minutes)
  • new item "Voodoo Poppet" : prevent you to die from some specific damages, providing a small potion effect to counter the kind of damage, and healing you.
  • new scrolls : "Scroll of Feather Fall" (slowing any fall) & "Scroll of Purification" (dispel your negative effects over time)
  • auto-equip for The Betweenlands

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

The Enchantments

  • Soulbound : keeps theses items on the player after death (includes an auto-equip on respawn)

The Effects (command /effect)

  • 'tombstone:ghostly_shape' : similar to the effect after your death : removes bad effects/burning, slowing any fall, slightly heals, prevents creatures to attack you and provides waterbreathing under water

Known Compatibility

  • Inventory :
    - Auto-equip : 'Baubles', 'GalactiCraft', 'Techguns', 'Aether Legacy' & 'RPG 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'
  • 'Ice and Fire' (but for me, this mod is unsafe, and requires some tricks to make it compatible)
  • 'NighKosh's GraveStone' (fully compatible)
  • 'JourneyMap' (there're messages to allow you to set waypoints)
  • 'Sync' (the grave's keys are correctly tranferred on death)
  • Claimed Area ('FTB Utilities' & 'GriefPrevention plugin', 'Nation plugin')
    -> tombstone can place the grave by default, but you need to allow to use the key on the grave in the config of theses mods (i'm going to add a second way to interact with graves)
  • vanilla spawn protection (allow to click the player's grave in the spawn area on dedicated server)
