If you’ve spent dozens of hours investing time, construction and adventuring into a Hardcore mode world in Minecraft, only to have it all snatched away when you take an unexpected long fall or get killed by a boss monster, you know how frustrating it can be to lose everything in an instant. The Hardcore Map Reset mod kind of defeats the purpose of playing Hardcore mode on vanilla maps, because the point is that you lose everything when you die – it adds a lot of excitement and tension to a game which is normally laid back and pretty boring.
However, if you’re a mod developer with a great map you want to share with other people, and you’ve set it to Hardcore, Hardcore Map Reset can save your end users a lot of time and frustration by resetting maps to their original starting positions, rather than forcing players to uninstall and reinstall them when they die. They will technically still lose everything on death, but the world will start over fresh and ready for them to try and beat it again. You can also save different instances of the same map and reset to different ones, but this again kind of defeats the purpose of playing Hardcore mode.
