What happens when you die? in The Gameplay Mechanics Assembly Posted December 16, 2018 · Report reply 15 minutes ago, Gerald_Deemer said: So no suggestions for the devs. They call for help if they need some right? I like the current idea regarding death, once we die we will drop our current inventory and can only respawn where a res node is located. So respawning would either be in the starting ark ship or where we built a node. Also I already agreed on the improvement of adding a small never will drop inventory above. The current death system is identical to space engineers and I honestly like that death system because the punishment of death depends on player choice.
