TemporalGearSpawnNerf (mainly for Wilderness Survival)

When you die in Wilderness Survival, you respawn a random distance away, usually extremely far. Finding your base is difficult or impossible, making the experience sort of like permadeath. However, once you've obtained a temporal gear (which you can get by panning 7 stacks of sand,) this mechanic is basically nullified because the gear can be used to permanently set your spawn point.

This very simple mod revives the fear of death by clearing your spawn point after you respawn. This means that a temporal gear can be used to respawn at your base only once. After you respawn at your base, you'll need to use another temporal gear to set your spawn point again, or risk being lost in the wilderness.

Feedback welcome! Thanks!

Even in less hardcore singleplayer worlds, this can be useful. I always have chests full of temporal gears piling up, just from killing drifters, and no use for them. I never thought of making them single-use consumables. Neat!

This is a great start! Can't wait to see this in The Wilderness Survival world we are in (And me being me.. would be great to eventually see it as a refillable artifact of some kind, but I know that is a bit more work)

Just write your home's coords into note. :)

Except the server we are on that this mod was created for doesn't show coords, or map, etc. A pseudo Hardcore map with the +/- 5K spawn radius.

If I install this mod on my current wilderness survival world where I already have set a spawn point with a gear, will the first spawn still count as the one I set? Or will it wipe, and I'll have to reset the spawn point with a new gear?

 

Awesome idea btw. The fear of death is needed.

Yes. The mod clears your spawn when you revive, not before.

Since your spawn point is already set, you will need to re-gear after each death, lest you become lost in the wild.

I actually sort of really like this idea, although it would be a pain.  Make it an option that can be toggled at world gen, and add it to the base game.  Would love to use this setting on a more challenging personal world survival experience..
