Scent Tracking (ArkFrame)

Track creatures and players by scent.

Mod ID: 1178259003

This is the first mod built against ArkFrame. It was intended to be purely an example mod to open source but it turned out quite well.

This mod Requires ArkFrame to be installed as first in load order!

Press F5 to toggle tracking.
Press SHIFT+F5 (or whatever the primary keybind key is) to open the menu to set tracking targets.

The keybind can be changed within the ArkFrame management UI (Default F9) in the "Keybinds" section.

The source for the mod can downloaded from here:

I like this mod, and hope you find success!

arkframe got updated with the aberration assets so this should now work just fine on aberration maps (Although there are still a few aberration creatures that aren't in the devkit as they were added later)

ArkFrame remaps everything, as such it is not compatible with mods that are made without ArkFrame. It probably won't become more common in mod making until after it is closer to being feature complete.

Is this mod touching the dino spawns or the dinos themselves? I was hoping to test this with Survival Plus, but this mod and/or ArkFrame breaks SurPlus functionality, and SurPlus breaks this mods functionality.

The update just now is to sync with changes in the arkframe mod as they were volatile. no content changes were made

Unfortunately there is absolutely nothing I can do for aberration dinos until the devkit update comes out so that I can update ArkFrame with the new assets.

Is it currently possible to use this mod in a partially-working state, or is it fully nonfunctional on Aberration maps until the DevKit update?
This is the best possible method I can imagine mapping / tracking in a map as vertically oriented as Abb, so I'm very excited to play with it.

I am actually afraid of what we will see on an aberration server. I have a feeling we will see the locations of everything burrowed like the nameless and the reapers too D:

@Zen Rowe, thanks for the reply i will have to wait patiently then.
i wanted to add it to my aberration server as i think it can be very useful for players.

@Mor unfortunately it requires the new devkit update so that ArkFrame itself can be updated with the new aberration assets.
