Give players a reason to join back!
With DataSave, players will have their roleplaying data automatically backed-up. After unexpected (serverside or clientside) crashes, they will be able to restore their progress on your server via chat command.

Q: What will happen if another player builds on the property of a disconnected player and the disconnected player comes back and recovers their props?
A: There will be a configurable save expiration time: If a disconnected player does not come back in that amount of time, they will not be able to recover their data when they join back. If by any chance, another player does build something before their saves expire and the disconnected player comes back, it will overlap the other player's props. Props are still undo-able after they are restored, so the other player can just ask the reconnected player or an admin to undo or remove the props.
Q: Does this addon save money printers, shipments, etc?
A: No, this addon does not save any SENTs to prevent minging. If that was allowed, players could restore their money printers, shipments, and etc if they were stolen.
