@Dr4g0n36 - I've tried both combinations, as well as the above-mentioned engram entries. Still nothing yet. :harvestpickaxe:

@Bitou2k - We're having this problem on the server where we are trying to set this to unlock at level 100, but the engram entry mentioned above doesn't seem to take effect. What's the best course of action? :pixarkimplant:

Hey, is it possible to change the Engram Level, so for example that it is unlockable at level 80 and not at 25?
[NSA]Boro Jun 6 @ 4:55am 
So it seems that the mod isnt working on a 3440x1440 screen, the view is scewed and the dinos head is in the way when mounted.. is there anything i can do to fix it?

Tried also this:
without luck. Any hint?

after last ARK patches the server override (lvl. 110 to obtain binocular) no longer work, it show in engram list at level 25. Maybe changed object name?

When I look through the binoculars the tooltip that pops up flickers on and off the screen so I can't consistently see what it says. It happened to a friend of mine while I was hosting. and Now while I am joined to someone else's game it's happening to me. I don't know what the problem is, so I can't give any additional information as to how to fix it. But this needs to get fixed. I can see from the comments I'm not the only one not having the problem addressed so please, fix this bug in your mod.

lovely mod! i just downloaded it and like it already!
however, when im mounted, i still get the Dinos head in frame when looking straight forward, and it clearly says it should ignore it.. is there something i need to toggle or change or something i missed?
