Is it possible we'll get an update in the future? I don't wanna see it die and my major most complaint is not being able to use the attachments (laser, silencer, scope, light) with the ammo types. Would LOVE to see it implemented so we can use each ammo type with each attachment on each gun.

Hi, I know you guys pinned the ini options, however I am using Ark Server Manager. I put in the ini codes for it, but some reason they are still not showing up in game. See I need to raise the damage multiplier by like a ton... so any tips for ark server manager adding it in?

Is there any way to override craft costs?

Really wanted to like this mod but it's far too grindy. Requires too many matts to craft ammo. Just like vanilla ark. You want some rifle rounds? Go mine 300 metal, forge those into 4 ingots, then cut down 40 trees to get 3 wood and go grind up five stacks of spark powder....you get one rifle round. Yes I'm being a snarky ass there but c'mon, how big are the ingots? You should get multiple rounds per ingot. Sorry it's a sore spot from vanilla ammo crafting for me. If your mod is supposed to make ammo crafting more fun....then it should be easier to make the ammo because >>we all want to shoot it<< not spend a week crafting up a box of ammo only to find out it wasn't what we thought it was and need to try another one. You have an automated grinder, and other cool stuff....why not a reloading press or something that cuts down on the cost per round??

Good luck with the mod, I'm removing it for a while but will check back from time to time. I want to love it, honest...just hate grinds.

Could you perhaps add 2 bore ammunition for the shotgun.

While the 2 bore was a beast. It is one of if not the largest round ever fired from a "rifle" and I do use the term rifle loosly as the 2 bore fired a 33.6mm or 1.3in lead ball at the target. Meaning it was portable cannon.

But it has its drawbacks in ark, the 2 bore round has less penatration than a 50 cal. in real life. So it could obliterate small creatures with one shot and medium creatures that are not armored. While armored medium and large creatures it would stun them. So it could stop a charging T-Rex in its tracks but also piss it off.

So if you were to implement it I ask for you to make it usable for the double barrel shotgun only as not only is it like a victorien era hunting rifle but also balance. The wide aimming reticule means
you would really need to get close to hit the target and it only has two rounds while the pump action would cut the "fear" of using the round.

how about a forge ini? that warm up time just crings you...

@ Dark Heart, as for your request, you can find information about mod adjustment in the discussion "INI Options". It is possible to set it, so that it fits your desired server settings ( AKA wipe the server for a hand full of spark :P ).
