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, 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 aren't will be noted.

Other than the above mentioned I will not be giving any additional creatures any new or unique abilites, 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

Please do not spam the comments asking for this creature or that creature, eventually I will get around to creating and adding Aberrant versions of all vanilla creatures, yes including fliers, with my priority being given to those that I feel best fit the map.

For full spawn codes of these creatures please see here: Spawn Codes

Next Aberrant Creatures to be added to the mod

Aberrant Squid (Whaaaaaaat!!!!)
Aberrant Mesopithicus

'But Kraaaaaken' I hear you cry right now, 'you've added a Mantis and Mantis eat Deathworm Horns and there's no Deathworms on Aberration so we can't tame them. You suck!'

Well, suck I may, but that doesn't mean I didn't think of this! The mod also adds Edible Crab Claws to the death inventory drops of Karkinos. Not only do Mantis' of all types find them delicious, but you can also use them as a replacement for all types of horns in the recipe for Broth of Enlightenment.

Please report any bugs or problems here: Bug Reports

The subject of fliers on Aberration has been a hot topic, and therefore I have made my statement on this mod and fliers here: This Mods Policy On Fliers and how to remove them if desired

If your server is awesome to be running this mod and you'd like to advertise it, please do so here: Server Advertising

As always, I raise a glass to my homies over at the Ark Modding Discord, whose wit and wisdom occasionally sinks in.

Thanks for taking a look and I hope you enjoy your new Aberrant creatures, give it a big ol' thumbs up if you do, and go check out some of my other mods why donchya

Massive love to my Patrons and donators, Pip, Eyaexiu Oli, Bolehlav, Koista, Nettle, Humera, Lye, Brian and Ravensfang, and my good buds and fellow content creators UpFromTheDepths and Myrmecoleon, you all rock!



I am moving house and countries again come the end of November, and therefore will be on a modding hiatus for certainly the whole of December and January. As the man said though, I'll be back, and I still have a whole heap of new ideas and new things to be added to this and my other mods too. Thanks for sticking with me and remember to stay frosty. Peace!

@Jackleg: I have also noticed I don't get any Reaper Queens with this mod installed. I know it work earlier.

I also get around 12,200 Abberant Rock Elementals on the surface. Don't know it this is intentional. But it makes it impossible to even walk on the surface because there is not place to walk. All the ground is covered with Rock Elementals.

@Eddy: In your Game.ini you put one line with the dino class name you wan't to prevent from spawning like:
The class names for the dinos in this mod is in one of the Discurssions threads. But some of them are wrong like Ammonite_Character_AADAberrant_C is listed as Ammonite_Character_BP_AADAberrant_C. Correct is without the "_BP".

How can I disable the spawning of specific dinos from the mod? Like Disable every dinospawn except aberrant rex, yuty and the night wyvern.
Jackleg Feb 1 @ 6:13pm 
The reaper queen spawns seem to be blocked somehow...has anyone else run into this issue?
Flockerkill Jan 25 @ 7:24am 
what map?
Dmetal2001 Jan 25 @ 7:21am 
some reason using the Cryopod on the Archaeopteryx will not allow it to be deployed, even with the allow flyers in caves enabled on a server
Flockerkill Jan 24 @ 12:34am 
simply post the line you thought is right...
Jackleg Jan 23 @ 5:20pm 
Does anyone happen to have the specific ini to disable the ammonite? i've tried several things that i THOUGHT was the correct line. However none of them seem to work. The place we are building a base is far too dangerous to have these things here as they aggro everything without us even attacking them. If anyone knows that would amazing! Sorry to post this in general comments. :P

im going to be a map creator most of my maps will require this mod to be inabled
Flockerkill Jan 11 @ 12:02am 
the same as in vanilla : using the .ini with npcreplacement to an empty string
Zoe, the Bad Wolf Jan 10 @ 6:50pm 
Is there a way to turn off some of the spawns?
