Important Notes

Saving Game Progress

NOTE

For multiplier or co-op, you can save at your respective positions in the world. When the host saves the game, it takes all current players and their inventories and remembers it. If you play with anyone, be sure to have them all online with you when you save as they can lose their data.

So its ALWAYS important to save the game before leaving an online server if you wish to return and have all the same items.

Also be warned that if you do not backup your save you will lose your inventory in coop mode when rejoining the same host, although your inventory seems to be saved at the host you still cannot access it. Developer has yet to address this.
