Tek Mine


Mod ID: 1227816383

The Ultimate base defense option for Tek!

Time to surprise your enemies with a new explosive ........ the new Tek Mine!
Have you ever needed a little more defense for your base or your F.O.B.? The new Tek Mine is here to provide that extra defensive force. Powered with the use of elemental shards, this thing will pack a punch that will leave your enemies wishing they didnt just try to enter your area.

The mine can now be configured for either Percent Damage or Base Damage

  • Base Damage or Percent Damage (via INI settings)
  • Variable or Constant damage
  • Multiple detonations
  • Mine has a damage radius, any dino or player within that radius will be damaged.
  • Elemental Shards power the mine, no other power is required
  • Elemental Shard quantity determines the number of detonations and the damage potential of the mine
  • INI configurable for Max and Min damage potential as well as an adjustable Dino damage output
  • Can be placed almost anywhere
  • Damage calculator provided to help server admins adjust settings on the fly before running on their server.
  • Has random snarky quotes when the mine is activated or when the player is damaged by the mine

Configuration Options:
  • Max Percent Damage: This is the max RAW damage potential the mine can output. This is before armor rating is included. Default is 75 (or 75%)
  • Min Percent Damage: This is the min RAW damage potential the mine can output. This is before armor rating is included. Default is 25 (or 25%)
  • Max Item Quantity: This is the stack limit for the server. If the stack limit is higher than this setting, the mine can have multiple Max output detonations, if the stack limit is lower than this setting, the mine will never output the max damage. See Damage Calculator to determine how this affects damage output. Default is 1000
  • Dino Damage Ratio: This is a ratio to the player damage that is outputed by the mine. This will determine how much damage a dino will recieve seperately from a player. Example if set to .5, the dino will recieve 50% less raw damage than a player. If set to 1.5, the dino will recieve 150% raw damage over what a player would recieve. Default is 0.25 (25% of what a player would recieve or 75% less raw damage)

The Tek Mine now has the ability to be either Percent Damage or Base Damage output. Through your desired game play, server admins can determine which damage potential the mine can output. Check the admin section for the INI settings you wish to use. The Base damage output is the same as the vanilla Tek Grenade. There is a excel calculator for the percent damage potential of the mine if you wish to see how the settings affect the damage output.

Thanks for all the support from those who have enjoyed this mod.

They are not invisible. They are fairly small and can be hidden under and around things. U can even place foundations on top of them if u so choose

The ini settings alone make this mod work for ANY type of server.... I know, I've got some nearly vanilla pvp servers and even a crazy 2000x pvp server with dinos with 10m HP and this mod stays balanced if I use the spreadsheet the mod author(BraizD) provides and adjust the ini settings he added accordingly. Top notch mod from a top notch author.

This mod is really cool. I enjoyed testing it and seeing all the features it added. The model and everything is truely unique. This guy put some serious work into this and it's very well polished and balanced.
