  1. timsavage
    This plugin stores a player's inventory in a chest on death for later retrieval. It has many options, but configuration and use has been kept as simple as possible.

    • Places a single or double chest at player's death location containing the player's inventory
    • Optional sign placement on chest, showing player name and death date
    • Configurable list of block types that chests can replace
    • WorldGuard, GriefPrevention, PreciousStones and Towny aware, will not place a chest where the player does not have access. Enabled individually.
    • Option to check protection plugins on chest access. Enabled individually, disabled by default.
    • Now supports Factions! (v1.5)
    • added WorldGuard 6.0 compatibility (v1.3), still works with WorldGuard 5.x
    • Searches a configurable distance from death location to find a suitable chest location
    • Optionally require players to have chest(s) in inventory
    • Option to remove empty chests on close
    • Chest protection allows only owners access. Also makes chests explosion proof!
    • Optionally allow player's killer to access their chest, for pvp looting.
    • Prevent concurrent access to chests when killer looting is enabled. (v1.4)
    • Optional quick-loot feature allows one click (sneak-punch) chest looting
    • Configurable expiration time for death chests, at which point they will break and drop their contents
    • Custom messages and language localization
    • Per world enabled in configuration
    • Uses sqlite by default for persistent storage, with yaml optional
    • Prevents creative mode players from opening death chests (v1.3)
    • Optionally prevent players from placing items in death chests (v1.4)
    • Optional sound effects! (v1.4)
    • A perfect compliment to SavageDeathCompass and SavageDeathSpawn

    I have a very intensive server with all my plugins, I swapped out NPC bodies for not only server performance but simplicity to the new players and... I am by far impressed with this plugin.
    It works perfectly, Will help reduce lag, and helps the players organize their gear on retrieval.

    Amazing plugin, wish there was a way to broadcast coordinates of where the chest was placed to the entire server after the default 1 hour time limit is reached for claiming a chest.. That way it could be more of a race to claim a chest.

    Everything's great, its just one thing.
    When a player is killed by a mob or player, their loot is dropped, not stored in a chest. I use 1.12, so maybe that's it. Please fix this! I would rate it 5 stars when it is!

    Great plugin. Hoping for dynmap integration. So far no "real" problems like many others have. Keep up the great work.

    Excellent plugin! Especially in combination with SavageDeathCompass. Puts all items in a chest with a sign, thus protecting them from other players (optionally) AND automates deleting the chest. Allows you to have there be a penalty for dying without being too harsh.
