Ddeatheath in Rust

When I die in the game, be it by pig, bear or suicide, I Respawn with all my resent collected wood, stone etc gone. No way can I advance. If this is true I am quitting until changed. Played 8 hrs so far and have nothing for it.

If you die you lose all, like in Minecraft for example. You can gather your loot back if you go back to the place you died, unless someone gets it before you, obviously.
