Bonjour! Welcome to Additional Aberrant Dinos, the mod that adds additional dinos, that are aberrant.

All additional dinos have the Aberrant health reduction and damage increase, as well as the snazzy glowy light effects that we all love, all are breedable (where applicable, obv.), lay eggs and all that jazz.

As the new Aberrant versions are unique to this mod (with the exceptions of the Megalania, Spider and Dimorph which were added to the game files but unused) removing the mod will also remove any of these new creatures.

Not all new additional creatures are immune to radiation, those that are will have an (R) next to their name in the below list.

Other than the Night Wyvern I will not be giving any additional creatures any new or unique abilities, they will be identical to their vanilla counterparts other than being Aberrant.

All additional creatures are added to the existing Aberration spawn containers. If there is a creature included in the mod that you do not wish to be in your game for whatever reason feel free to remove it in the usual way using your Game.Ini

This will not affect Primal Fear dinos directly. However, adding this mod may only make PF dinos more rare which might affect game play. Read more on PF mod page description on other Dino mod compatibility.

I'm trying to adjust the spawnrates. But the "DinoSpawnWeightMultipliers" setting takes a "DinoNameTag" parameter, not the classname. So I'm a bit unsure what the DinoNameTag should be? Is it the full Dino name "Aberrant Castoroides" or just "Castoroides" or is it "Beaver"?
If I look at the standard Aberrant dinos made by wildcard it uses the same nametag for the Aberrant version as for the none Aberrant. But how does this mod do?

great work, more aberrant dinos please

@Tenebris Always remember to add the line _C, it would be like this

NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "Dilo_Character_BP_Aberrant_C", ToClassName ="")

I'm struggling to disable certain creatures from this mod, I put the creature's ID in the game ini with the disabling config line

NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "Dilo_Character_BP_Aberrant", ToClassName ="")

But they just keep spawning anyways. What am I doing wrong?
