After I've played on MC I save then close the console, but once I restart the game it says that I've died. I can't find where it is I've died, and when i quit the game i make sure I'm somewhere safe but once in game cant find anything or any reason why ive died. Help please this is starting to do my head in and I'm considering quitting the game.
There are loads of others having the same issue. I have logged in dead more than 5 times since Christmas when we started playing the game. I thought at first that saving the game at my spawn point would help, it dosen't. I have to make sure my inventory is completely empty before logging off. So basically really long mining trips are hard to do unless I bring a bed and chests, so if I die I don't loose it all if I need to quite before returning to home. There is nothing you can do to prevent it. I have heard your items you loose appear by your original spawn point, but I have not tested this theory myself.
The first time I died on startup I had stopped on the side of the lake and got out of my boat. I restarted the game and had died but all of my stuff was scattered around. Some out in the lake, some up in trees, some across the hillsides. So, I decided to always save in a safe place like a structure. It keeps happening but I usually start the game on top of my house. Sometimes I don't die but "wake up" on top of my house with all of my stuff. One time I saved down in a mine. When I restarted I was exactly 20 blocks above my previous location, in the dark because it was unexplored. Still had all of my stuff.
