Description
THIS MOD IS OUTDATED AND LIKELY BROKEN. Wait till November to get a working version.






Giant Megalodons! Id : 629138269
This is the new version of the old giant megs mod . Im sorry for the inconvenience. Lost my meg files and had to restart from a google drive backup.

Attention : If u had installed the old and now broken Giant Megalodons mod before, you have to go to D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\ARK\ShooterGame\Content\Mods\564832495 and delete that folder. Then, subscribe to this mod and type in the command : Destroywilddinos to reset spawns.

Giant Megalodons! Thought the oceans were empty? This mod is for you. Actually its for everyone, cus who doesnt love giant sharks?

This mod is not intended to be realistic. In fact, the default megalodons are already pretty close to IRL size for megs. But its just disappointing to have a meg the size of the IRL Conservative estimate when other creatures like mosasaurs are given ridiculous sizes. (Ingame mosasaur is around 40m). T-rexes ingame are also way bigger than their actual size. And lets not bring up the Gigant...hence this mod intends to bring the Megalodon to Ark proportions.
The megalodon, the largest shark that ever lived, and the animal with the greatest bite force , is reduced to the worst underwater predator in Ark. Why have the shark be so undermined? If you share my opinion and think that the megalodon deserves way better, then this mod is for you.



Default Megalodons have been changed to Juvenile Megalodons. Now with 600 move speed and 80 base dmg, but only 300 health. Basically Intended to make ocean exploring tense. The megs will kill you easily, but you can kill them as easily.

Summon command : cheat summon megalodon_character_bp_GiantMegs_c
Blueprint'/Game/Mods/GiantMegas/Megalodon_Character_BP_GiantMegs.Megalodon_Character_BP_GiantMegs' 1 1 1 [insertdesiredlevel]


And of course, Giant Megalodons have been added into game. Tamable and ridable.

Giant Megalodon Stats : 5000 Health 2000 base damage 5000 torpor 1000 carry weight 500 stamina. (Increased food consumption and attack drains half of stamina)


Summon command : cheat summon GiantMegalodon_Character_BP_C
Blueprint command : Blueprint'/Game/Mods/GiantMegas/Megalodon/GiantMegalodon_Character_BP.GiantMegalodon_Character_BP' 1 1 1 [insertdesiredlevel]

Note : The giant megs have a 3 second attack interval instead of the usual 0.5, so its not as OP as it may seem.



Also, mosasaurs have been buffed in order to rival giant megas. Slight increase in size.
Mosa Revised stats : 8000 hp 400 stamina 4500 torpor 2000 weight.

New mosa summon command : cheat summon mosa_character_bp_giantmegs_c


Basically Mosasaurs are tanks while giant megas can one-hit almost everything.

Monster Megalodons added to game!
-First dino from Sea Monsters update
-Currently the biggest creature in game.
-Still very WIP
-No spawns, yet.
-Its using the default white-with-black-stripes texture currently but Im going to retexture it. Probs gonna make it completely albino with red eyes or something.
-Particle effects (like alpha creatures) for this are going to be added in another update.
Use this code to summon : cheat summon monstermegalodon_character_bp_c

Warning : Its extremely huge and probably very buggy as well


Update
- Slightly buffed mosas and giant megs
- juvenile meg attack reduced from 100 to 80


Future Updates
-further stats tweaking
-New textures for Monster Megalodon
-harpoon gun (unconfirmed)
-Dossiers (if someone helps me create it)
-Sea Monsters Update (see below)

Sea Monsters Update (ETA : December)
-New bosses (Nessie, monster megs, giant mosas)
-New dinos remodelled from existing ones (Elasmosaur, Tylosaur, kronosaur, perhaps some prehistoric sharks too)
-Useful megalodon teeth
-Harpoon gun to hunt these creatures down

This wont be a single update but rather I'll release the aforementioned content gradually as im done with it.


FAQ
1. The question everyone is asking. Does it work with Annunaki Genesis?
A: Yes. It does. However both of these mods overwrite the default megalodons and mosas. PUT THIS MOD ABOVE ANNUNAKI i in mod load order for the buffed mosasaurs and juvenile megs to take effect. Pls note, there may be a few bugs caused by running these two mods together. If the bug is serious or potentially gamebreaking, notify me in the bug report thread.

Note : The jaws soundtrack may create copyright issues but since this is a really small mod, it will stay, for now. Dont be surprised if I have to remove it though.

Thanks for the update Mehenai. This mod is outstanding and in my mind, crucial to every game. Looking forward to the update!

This mod is super outdated. I no longer play Ark and I have moved on to modding Skyrim.

The mod is apparently broken because of the various updates Ark has received since my last released version. Since ARK has finally had a full release, I will patch and release a working version in November (Im too busy to do it in September or October)

it's outdated but i mean when i had it it literally spawned like a whole legion of them in the depths so it's very unstable good idea though would be scary if it would work

Would it be possible to make these guys hunt the Leeds naturally? Just a thing that would be cool.
