tModLoader Player Location Saving

Continue your adventure! Log in where you left off!

Have you ever wished you could continue your adventure exactly where you last logged out at instead of starting all the way back at your spawn?
Then this mod is for YOU!

About
Player Location Saving is a simple mod that saves player location on logout, and automatically teleports players to their saved location when logging back in.

Compatibility
Player Location Saving is compatible with all types of mods.
It works on both singleplayer and multiplayer worlds/servers.
Both the official tModLoader and the 64-bit version can be used.

Details
The only thing this mod does is trigger a teleport for the player upon entering the world if they have a record of a previous location in their custom save data.
New characters will spawn at the default spawn location. Any character in a new world will spawn at the default spawn location.
I personally run a server with mods ranging from the very popular, large/overhaul mods to tiny, lesser-known mods and have experienced no conflicts with this mod.
Currently, the mod saves the player position data when the player chooses Save and Exit through the in-game menu.

A bit of background
I was surprised to learn that player location is reset each time you exit/enter a world. To me, this should never have been a "feature" of the base game.
Log out and get teleported back outside of the cave you are currently in the middle of spelunking?! No thanks!!

I am still rather new to this game and community, yet it wasn't hard to see that you guys are quite awesome so I wanted to share with you something I created.

* I am aware that the feature this mod provides is available through the Terraria Overhaul mod, but I was unable to find a mod that provides this functionality 1) as a standalone mod and 2) for both singleplayer and multiplayer worlds/servers.

Thanks
Hope you enjoy. Feedback, suggestions and questions are all welcome!
Thank you for reading and trying out my first mod if you do.

Extremely glad you made this mod. I've had no issues regarding it so far, BUT i had one strange occurrence where when i was testing this mod. Basically, i made a new world (XL), logged out standing on top of a pot next to spawn and logged back in, just to test the mod. Upon doing so, it spawned a glade wraith after putting me back in my previous position and making a "thump" sound as if something broke, the glade wraith kept spawning over and over until the server was restarted. Any idea how this could have happened? Thanks!
Also, idea! I'm glad you made this as an almost standalone from the terraria overhaul, but i was wondering if you could do something in the near future, my idea is fire spreading or trees falling having animations, like in the terraria overhaul, but without the overhaul being needed. My main reasons for this mainly revolve around instability with the terraria overhaul in general, but i LOVED those features outside logging in in previous position. Thanks!

This one beats me without more info. Sounds like you are also using the Spirit Mod? Amazing mod! Big fan of it myself. I've been using that on my server too, but haven't seen anything like this happen... yet? I don't see how this could be the cause of Player Location Saving though, as the only thing my mod does is invoke a teleport on the player, a single time, after they are done entering the world. I'll keep an eye out for odd behavior like this. Thanks for the feedback.

This is a neat idea - I'd like to see more mod developers offer standalone features rather than all-in-one packages where you are stuck with the good and the bad. Following that practice, I'm going to say that's out of scope for Player Location Saving, but it sounds like a good idea for a separate mod. Thanks for the idea!

Yea, scratch that, it must be some other mod just occasionally bugging out a tad. Yea, spirit mod is great! And no problem, yea, it's totally out of the scope and a different topic, but still a somewhat cool idea. I've always liked the small visual changes and flame changes from the Terraria Overhaul and mods similar but IMO they contain far to much bloatware and dont run well with other mods.
