Balanced Narcotics


MOD ID: 1195125628
Balanced Narcotics aims to improve upon existing narcotic items without being overpowered. We want the narcotics in this mod to be both balanced and worthwhile to use as an additive to base narcotics. Suggestions and bug reports are welcome in our Discord Server.

Important note on Structures & Items
Functions / Systems of Structures & Items are possible to change / get upgraded / be removed / or have additions as updates to the mod get released. This is the nature of newer mods & mods still being developed. Therefore we have opted to keep the structures & items descriptions out, for the time being.

We will support & help our community, because without you there is no mod. The community is our extended family, all bonded by our mutual love for ARK.

Oh a description page that says absolutely nothing about the mod. How brave.

Tried this mod out today and I am pretty sure its broken. The descriptions of the darts are completely wrong. I moved this mod all over my load order and even started a new map with just this mod installed, it does not function as it claims. Great idea but its not functional.

Would love if this used some additional resources instead of just rare flowers. Since biotoxin is a much more potent narcotic already in game, could some of the more potent recipes use this instead of rare flowers or in addition to even? I know I can change the recipes myself but the fact that biotoxin isn't even used feels kinda wrong. Additionally, some INI options, and some wake-darts would be nice.

does the mod have to be on a specific loading place? neither engrams are there nor can i cheat the table in existence. my server is running ragnarok

Crafts too slow, seems hit or miss on whether the amount of narcotic is actually hitting the target. Maybe some day will have an ini and function better.

Having a bit of an issue and hoping someone can help, I installed auto engrams on my server when the server first started but only recently added this mod.

Unfortunately though I'm unable to unlock the engrams needed to craft anything included with this mod as auto engrams only unlocks engrams for the level you are currently at, is there anyway to force add the engrams to myself or other players?

Is something with the mod's calculation bugged? Only getting ~1.8k torpor from a 30cc dart when if it's operating as the description implies it should be ~4.6k if only considering instant torpor and ~6.6k if accounting for all damage over time resulting in a massive loss of Torpor->Narcotic ratio. Tested on a Diplodocus, and Stego so far.
