If you can't spawn it, your mod isn't loading. Remove the mod and load and save. Readd the mod.

No, it seems the mod helper is spawning, but has none of its commands. The summon command works fine. Well, that's the problem I'm having, anyways. Figured it might be related.

You might want to join the Discord page and ask Samson (Swords) what might be causing that. He's very active and will answer you.

Prompt, who knows, is there such a setting ?
Hi im playing in single player and i am using the new extincion mod which already has some npc,but the thing is that i would also like to add this mod so that i can have some npc buildings to destroy for fun
So my question is:what must i do so that i can have 3-4 nps bases/towns inthe map with some nps there and not all the other wild npcs?

Johnny,

Your best bet is to install the mod, start the server, save, stop. Add the INIs for what you want and just block the rest.

I would recommend using the Customer Spawn Containers listed in this post and a link to another one to place them in a zone you want. You will want to follow the instructions we have provided and just add the BASE1_C and whatever you want and where on the map. It takes some playing with but you can get it working.

Things are changing with the mod since ARK has the Custom Spawn Container so thats probably the best option.

I'm having a similar issue. I can spawn it in for a fraction of a second before it dissapears. Let me know how you fixed it.

Did you happen to put it in the pop limit with -1? If not just take the mod off and start and save. Readd and boot.

why there is no towns in the mod ? i mean there is those huuuge cyrclular bases but not those small primitive towns like the V3 ? is there anyway i can have them spawning in my map ? and what is the console spawn for the farmer bush people ? im playing single player in the volcano map :P

No modhelper did as suggested above take mod off start server, save and stop server. readd mod kill dinos (which kicks me out the server) rejoin saveworld try to summon modhelper no joy. :( any help would be great.
