Notice: This mod is now discontinued until further notice. I feel that some of the largest features have now been implemented directly by Wildcard (namely the insect breeding) so for the future this mod will likely not have any further updates. Thank you to everyone for your kind words and support up until this point, I hope I'll get around to making a new mod in the future that adds more meaningful content to Ark.


Adds brand new full lifecycles, capabilities & colourations for all manner of insects, diplopods, gastropods, arachnids and other cave-dwelling creatures!

Spiders and scorpions are arachnids and snails are molluscs.
However, they are all invertebrates.

@Serb the bees are the only thing missing for me in those mods though you still get amazing quality, plenty of content and in their discords you can even see the progress :)
Serb Sep 14, 2021 @ 9:28pm 
only thing missing from other mods would be the bees
Serb Sep 14, 2021 @ 3:56pm 
yeah currently I'm trying to combine No Untameables, Dino Fixes, and Kraken's Better Dinos since that adds wall climb spiders
HC_Warriorplayer Sep 14, 2021 @ 1:55am 
@Serb look into the mod No Untameables, the mod athor is doing a great job with that, making untameable creatures tameable and giving them useful abilities, some even habe unique taming mechanics :)
Serb Sep 13, 2021 @ 3:34pm
