TCs Auto Rewards
This mod allows server admins to configure “Packs” to be purchased by their players using a currency which can be either distributed by admins in-game or automatically using realtime cycles. I have been told this mod can be used as a replacement for the kits plugin if you happen to be using a linux server.

Why Create This Mod?
I had originally created this mod solely for my server but it turned out so well that I thought I’d open it for any admin to use.
We have various events all the time on my server and I wanted an easier way to reward the winners than having to spawn in a bunch of items each time. With TCs Auto Rewards I can just open the admin menu and give the winner some points which they can spend on any of the rewards which I’ve configured.

Please Note:
There are no default packs in this mod, you will need to configure your own in game.
Check out the Config Settings Page for more information on the settings available.

Quick Facts
  • Multiple packs can be configured and each can contain any number of items.
  • The stats of the items are customisable; (Change the quantity, armour rating, damage, durability, insulation, etc)
  • Items can be vanilla or modded.
  • Include resources, consumables, armour, saddles.
  • Have themes for your packs; (i.e Taming Pack which contains a crossbow and some tranq arrows)
  • Lock Packs behind certain Tags (i.e Level requirement, Admin Only, Custom Tag)

Currency
Each player uses ARc (Auto Reward Credits) to purchase reward packs. A players ARc balance attached to their SteamID, this ensures if they create a new character their points will still be assigned to them. Admins can Update players details including their ARc balance via the admin menu. Please keep in mind that ARc balances are specific to each server. If you join another server that has TCsAR installed, your balance will not transfer over.

Income Systems
  • Time Based Income (Real Time; Distributed to everyone as long as at least one person logs on each day)
    7 Timeframes for Income
    • Daily
    • Weekly
    • Fortnighly (Every 2 Weeks)
    • Monthly
    • Quarterly (Every 3 Months)
    • Semiannually (Every 6 Months)
    • Annually (Every Year)

  • Played Time Bonus (Real Time; Distributed to each player as they play on the server only for the time they play)
More info in Config Settings Page

Reward Vault
Both the Admin Menu & the Reward Menu are accessed via the Reward Vault which can be learned at lvl 5 for 0 engram points. It can be crafted in your inventory using 20 Raw Metal, 30 Stone, 50 Wood & 25 Hide. It is a wall mountable metal vault with reduced health (1000hp) and 300 slots (INI Configurable). It does not yield very much xp per craft but may be a little overpowered in terms of having a cheap metal storage box accessible at level 5. If you feel it is too overpowered, you can enable a setting in the INI file to disable the ability for people to place items inside the Reward Vault.

Future Features
While I love suggestions, please remember I reserve the right to create the mod how I see fit.

love the mod. thank you for putting the time int it
Gridlok Nov 16 @ 8:36am 
Do you have a link for people watching these comments where we can add custom drops to certain creatures in game? Sadly I am no .ini genius, for now that's a great way to motivate people in killing Corrupted Wyverns/Reaperkings/Giga's.

Next mod: TCs Ark Quest's.
TimmyCarbine  [author] Nov 16 @ 8:30am 
That is a really cool idea, however it would require quite a bit of work to implement properly and it go beyond the scope of this project.
Some admins have added the ARc Bars to Alpha drops using the ini settings, perhaps that might suit your needs
Gridlok Nov 16 @ 8:02am 
Thanks for your active support to the mod!
btw: Not sure if people have asked, maybe it's cool to add a way to get credits by delivering something to give people a reason to kill alpha's etc, like 1 alpha rex tooth = 5 credits, so admins can make " quests " in game.

again, thanks for the mod!

@Gridlok As soon as I have access to the dlc in the devkit I will be adding the lootcrates from extinction
Gridlok Nov 15 @ 11:27pm 
Hey there, first off all great mod.
We have been using it in extinction but there is one small flaw, the loot boxes disapear from our gamble kit.
I have read something this happend due that the loot crates are not native to extinction.
Wich loot crates should I use and/or will these be added in future updates?

Thanks.

So, to make it admin only I can disable the engram?
TimmyCarbine  [author] Nov 11 @ 5:55pm 
If you're referring to the reward vault where you access the menus from, yes, all players can craft a vault
Eferhilda Nov 11 @ 5:51pm 
So, is this something that any player can create on their own? Or can is it something that only admins can spawn in?
