New in the 2.0 update is a skin for your TEK Helmet that upgrades it with the Swim Clear underwater vision.

New INI setting available to disable this skin if you wish.

Mask supports any map, but below are the maps that have been tested and reported OK.
  • The Island + Underwater Caves
  • The Center
  • Ragnarok [Thanks Letoric]
  • Madagascar Evolved [Thanks Hermit]
  • Aberration [Prelim Test OK] - Potential Improvements

alas i can't get this to work on lost island... the mask overlay works, but not the fog-removing mask modes. is anyone else able to get that to work, so maybe i'm just doing it wrong?
WeeHammy Sep 12, 2022 @ 2:04pm 
Just out of curiosity, has anyone tested this on Fjordur? I will be testing it tonight to test.

If that thing about ECO is true then why did we just get the Highland homes mod?
Jazzy Jun 26, 2022 @ 12:24am 
@tily_lass no, the author has stated several times they arent. its been 5 years since last update so i wouldnt count on it
tily_lass Jun 20, 2022 @ 5:48pm 
this is EXACTLY what I need... any chance of an update?

@PureSpirit yeah it's a big loss for the whole modding community, she said she'll keep the mods but no longer update them or make new ones.
PureSpirit Jun 14, 2022 @ 2:18pm 
@MannenMyten wait what?! Eco's quit? D: I ADORE her mods!! Damn, that's tragic :(
MannenMyten Jun 14, 2022 @ 12:19pm 
Today I found out that Eco has left the modding, because toxic people harass her day in and out with negativity about her mods and it has broken her. It makes me sad to hear and I hope she gets better soon.

I just wanted to say that me, my brother and nephew love and appreciate ALL the work you do for the modding community for Ark. I wish more people would tell all of you modders that what you are doing is great! And not complain and bitch about things you get for free.

Thank you! I hope you never feel bad about your modding.

Oh, and also: fck toxic people they can go off and die in a corner.
