How do I kill off my player, reduce his lives and respawn him?

I’m creating a 2D Brawler type game and I’m not sure how to have the player die, lose a life, and respawn at that location where he died with full health. Any ideas how I would go about doing this?

try looking at the free unity examples for 2d and 3d game with the lerpz charecter. it walks you through creating a respawn point, using GUI and scripts to subtract lives. you should find what you need.

It will give you a good start.

Thank you to all of you for answering! I apologize for not responding sooner I’ve been rather busy.
