Like a regular SpyGlass, except Awesomer!

- Completely hands free (can be used with a weapon)
- Shows the dinos more relevant stats and level points (wild and tamed)
- Tells you if a dino can be tamed, how and what with
- Shows buffs on the target and time remaining
- Ignores the dino you are riding
- Same crafting cost etc as vanilla SpyGlass
- Zoom with RMB, or RMB+Shift while riding or using a weapon
- A whole bunch of customization options in the settings (ALT+S) (See pics)

- Works on Players

- Works on Supply Crates
- Shows crates required level, health(time remaining) and contents

- Several options can be enabled/disabled globally via admin settings in game (See pics) or in INI

You can now add custom info to your dinos and it'll display in the UI!
Just add a custom tag to your dino that starts with
All following text will show in the UI.

INI Options

INI options will only take effect if \ARK\ShooterGame\Saved\SaveGames\AwesomeSpyGlassServerSettings.sav does not exist. The save file gets automatically created if one does not exist and uses the INI settings to create it, else uses default of everything enabled. After that you must use in game settings or delete the save file again to reload new INI options. In game settings override INI.


Disable GPS

Disable Outline

Disable Player Trageting

Disable Crate Trageting

Enjoy :)

Thank you so much for this! This is exactly what I was looking for!

Forgot about this last one. It would be awesome if you could hit a key to lock onto the current target regardless of whether you are aiming at them or anything else. Showing their stats as long as you are within detection range.

Love this mod. The amount of detail is exactly what i was looking for. I was almost contemplating getting the dev kit and figuring out how to make my own before i found this one.

would love to see the info of the satellite drops in extinction where it tells you the health and how many enemies are left and how many rounds deep you are into it. Maybe a setting that turns on and off building stats or something. It's also useful to check the health of structures quickly right now i have to use two spyglasses.

also would love for the detection to ignore trees and rocks a bit better. Currently if a branch is in the way the info is tough to get even with detection all the way up.
is there an ini setting to enable the notification for everyone?
i can do it for myself, but for everyone else its still missing, and its causing lag for some reason.

Is the maker of this mod still active? Since a lot of questions haven't been answered...

Thanks for this must-have mod, Chris. My only wish is that when looking at supply crates, you added some kind of quality indicator other than the color. I'm colorblind so Ramshackle/Mastercraft and Apprentice/Journeyman are impossible for me to distinguish. A simple letter or number after the item name would be awesome. ie. (1) for Ramshackle and (5) Ascendant.

I can't learn the engram for this on my server. I have tried re uploading everything and it say's its in the game but when i click on the engram it won't learn it. Any suggestions?

Admins can disable the outline. See above info for gameusersettings.ini

Or I believe can still do from in-game admin menu using alt s
