Civilized Difficulty Losing inventory on death

Game mode: Singleplayer
Problem: Bug
Region: UK

Been playing the game for a few days now and there have been a few times where i have been killed only to lose all my inventory, despite the fact i was playing on the civilized difficulty which states that you do not lose items on death, this occurs not when starting a new game but when continuing an existing game after exiting the game and going back some time later.

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. start a new character on civilized difficulty and doe some stuff
  2. exit game
  3. return to game and select continue
  4. get killed by something and get respawned back at either desert or bed roll and find that your completely naked and your inventory is empty

Since it is in singleplayer, it sounds like you might need to give yourself admin rights and disable “Drop Equipment on Death”, as for how to do that in case you don’t know, perform the following steps;

  1. Press the Options button and go to Settings.
  2. Go to the Server Settings tab
  3. Press X to enter the General menu and select the option “Make Me Admin”
  4. Press Circle to back out and scroll down to the Survival menu.
  5. Press X to enter the Survival menu and see if “Drop Equipment on Death” is checked or unchecked, if it is checked (which it sounds like it is), uncheck it.

That should fix the problem until they fix this issue properly, those server settings should remain between sessions too.


I was just caught-out by a sandstorm and it happened again, this time however it was a new character and within the same session.

the “drop equipment on death” is ticked despite the civilized difficulty setting.

Hey there @shadowwraith

Welcome to our community.
We’re going to send word to our team that the civilized difficulty has that feature disabled. Until then and as @CrystalGoddess mentioned, please make sure to disable it manually.
Thanks for your feedback.
