I was simply playing minecraft mining some iron ore when all of a sudden it freezes and it kicks me out of my session. I return on to my single player world and all i see is a green screen and im taking damage and die. I then respawn and go back to the location i died and all my items are gone! wtf!?!?!? someone tell me what happened?
Something went wrong with java or your computer or something causing your game to crash.
Your players postion is saved constantly however the world around you is not.
When it crashed the world reverted to its last saved state, and your player was inside a block that was not dug out then so started to suffocate.
I am not certain, but I am rather sure your items disappear if they are stuck with no way out within 1 block.
Yeah, items will disappear if trapped in a block, if you place the block the items will usually pop up above the block, but if something like 2+ gravel were to fall on them, I believe the items would disappear.
