Toothless agrees ;)

 

seeing how Fur will basically be useless at the moment due to not having any biomes, any chance of this so we can wear it for costumes without penalty? http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=529393806&searchtext=

I can't find a backpack mod but if there's one around, it'd actually be really cool imho. So, if someone finds something, post it here for me!

The list of mods I suggested in another post (some have already been mentioned):

 

Re-usable parachute:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/fi...=556741436

The name basically describes it. I use parachutes a lot and I hate carrying multiple due to the weight. This would be a nice and practical feature.

 

Music Radio:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/fi...=539467094

What better way to add atmosphere to the taverns and events than with music?

 

Advanced Architecture:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/fi...=539464369

This adds some amazing construction stuff that all builders would fall in love with!

 

Aku Shima:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/fi...=479295136

Most people should have heard of this mod, it adds a ton of stuff. Definitely worth looking into.

 

Big Raft:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/fi...=519536568

basically adds another raft with a much bigger structure limit. Obviously this could cause lag issues so you can ignore this if it does.

 

Many New Items:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/fi...=511168000

This also adds a lot of new stuff including armour for dinos! I've used this a lot in singleplayer and it's a great mod to use!

 

Pimp My Rex:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/fi...=547099024

Voted in the top 10 Ark mods this adds some cool armour for the rex!


I just went through the New (Current) and the Old Patch note threads, and searched Fire and afterwards Dragon. Nothing came up regarding what you mentioned? Either way, we use the dragon for IC reasons and Events. It wouldn't make real sense if we let everyone have one.

 

Will the old lore carry over to the new map though? I mean it's a new place so it could be perfectly logical for it to have dragons in it. Just my thoughts, I really like the mod!

Listing everything I found worth noting while scanning through the available mods. Not asking all to be listed Igi, just have a look at em and pick some if you feel they would be good to have around later on.

 

 

 

  • I have not had a look at the new map yet, but maybe Bridges might be a good idea if it really has that many cliffs.

 

  • Something that I think should have been introduced into the game a long time ago is the Industrial Grinder. It also looks really neat, great model.

 

  • Maybe this Color Mod would relieve the admins of players asking for dyed animals? This is purely gimmick tho.

  • On the same note, different color 'species' would be a cool idea with the Zoo mod!

 

  • Snakes. If you're going to add dragons at some point I'd really love these bebs, although I don't know how intrusive it would be once they become tameable in vanilla.

 

  • Another a bit gimmicky mod is the BioTech one. Aside the fun factor I think it could add another side to early play and it would definitely open up some more options in RP. Also the knife is cool looking don't judge me.

 

  • I think colored torches would be excellent for border marking and could make for some really cool events. Not too fantastic as well as you can absolutely dye fire with chemicals IRL.

  • This is something I've been itching for ever since breeding was introduced: a cooled trough may give solo players or people who do not have the time to feed regularly some more chance to have their dinos live without them for a bit.

After vigorous testing of the mod I suggested it seems that it has more ups than downs. This mod also has it's own flamthrower which overlaps the other which makes it not possible to have two different flamethrowers on my computer. The katana and the "thor" hammer aren't as OP as I originally thought they were, same goes for the flamethrower in this mod + bullet focused weapons. Same goes with the armors for both players and dinos. The cost for making the weapons are also reasonable like the ones already offered. They have a good feel to them as well as good sounds attached to when fired. Here are some of the screenshots I took.

 

Armor rating of the tactical uniform is 150 without the helmet 200 with. Costs more than enough polymer +++

Armor rating of the flak pieces for the animals are at 45. so they lie somewhere between apprentice and journeyman rating

It needs a bit more testing but so far so good.

 

Flamethrower: (which empties fast, fire doesn't last too long before being extinguished, it also has a realistic range of fire)

Firing the new and added rocket launcher (no it doesn't set things on fire it's merely for the effect):

Auto shotgun (which seems to oddly reload between each shot):

From my moment of samurai zen by a mountain:

I'd like this mod as it would suit my new character perfectly but we can't just have a mod because I like it, more people will have to veto it of course. I will add more pictures as I test it more

 

Another mod that would solve the issue of big distances on travelling would be the stargate mod which is technically a huge teleportation portal.

I havent' tested it yet but it looks like it has alot of potential. I know some might say: "But that's not arkish, it's too unrealistic" No it's not, we've spawned broodmothers several times through a portal so rp wise we could say we have learned to harvest that technology to build it ourselves. It would be easier for people to meet each other on something other than just birds and it would make travelling to the floating isle more interesting.

 

Here's a video of the Stargate mod in action:

We should have a mod that adds a standing torch that lasts forever, as it is annoying to constantly fuel it. I know it exists, just cant find the link cause Im on a school pc.

Aku Shima:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/fi...=479295136

Sadly Aku Shima hasn't been updated and is currently broken.

The lore will be transferring over as well.

Riji's list of favorites:

 

 

Wooden Bridge!

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=558651608

No longer will you have to complain to people who make awful looking bridges! The bridge comes premaid, plus, you can knock it down like any other structure!

 

Aku Shima

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=479295136

I too indorse Aku Shima.

 

Advanced Architecture

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=539464369&searchtext=

I mean come on, who wouldn't want to build a legit castle?

 

 

I also endorse ANYTHING that includes more variety of weaponary. Axes, Swords, different styles of bow, handguns, rifles (many many rifles. HELL MUSKETS!), anything with pointy ends!

Yo folks! The OP has been updated with more mods. Make sure to suggest something else if you think it'd be interesting for our server!

 

Cheers!

Are we gonna have a vote on the above suggested mods at one point?

 

Yes, if a mod will be interesting to improve the RP experience around here, will surely be taken into consideration for the future. That's why we keep updating the list. And I take the chance to remind everybody to suggest any mod that you think may be cool for the server, but must be ESSENTIAL at the same time, as said by Igi at the beginning of this thread.

There's a mod that adds over 130 new buildable structures:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=567659264

 

Has some interesting things such as statues.

However a lot of it seems really modern but he did mention a way to remove items from the mod so it might be worth looking in to!

Oh and a sword and kibble shop! With 10 new weapons including cool swords and axes!

Yup, I like those. I'd like to have a bathtub in my bathroom. ♥

 

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=539464369&searchtext=Advanced+Architecture+Mod

 

What about this?

 

'Very large, two piece drawbridge that rests across two foundations. The second piece provides a gate rest, with a snap point for Full Width Steps and a small area with a lever to open or close the gate from the other side.'

This would be great for RP!

 

 

Or this.

This would be really cool even if it's just for the statues and new melee weapons
