Human NPCs

Human NPC's v2.1

ID - 1443404076


Human NPCs add Humans to the world of Ark.
You can tame them, they like to eat most things.

Tame NPCs can guard your land and as they patrol it or while set in turret mode
they can collect resources that are in the area as well as look after your crops.

They will look after your Forge, Campfires, Cook Meat, Put the correct stuff into Perserving Bin and Crop Plots

They are only primitive at this point but as time goes on
I’m sure they will learn to do many more things such as Riding, Fishing and Trading

NPCs can be set Friendly, Savage or somewhere inbetween
They are here to stay so you will just have to get used to them

Please respect their culture -
Wild NPCs believe -
Animals that allow themselves to be ridden are evil and must be destroyed
You must walk with your animal in their presence
Anyone not from their tribe is bad!

Just add the MOD and your ready to go and if you need to tune it then adjust the GameUserSettings.ini

GameUserSettings.ini Setup

--Modes of Play--
Added 4 Modes of Play
All Hostile(No wave)
Default -- All Hostile(Until waved at)
All friendly (Unless attacked by anything)
All friendly (Unless attacked by a Player)

NOTE -- You must walk with your animal in the Wild NPCs presence
NOTE -- Even friendly wild NPCs will turn hostile if startled

StartFriendly= -1 -- (-1 = Disable Wave, 0 = Not Friendly , 1 = Friendly)
OnlyPlayersUpsets=1 -- All friendly (Unless attacked by a Player) - (Requires StartFriendly=1)
AngryCoolDown=300 - Time in seconds that they stay angry for.
OnlyPlayersUpsets= --- 0 = If any dino attacks a NPC they will also target players , 1 = They will only target players if a player hurts them

--Walking Tame--
How to do Walking Tame
When they charge at you, you need to play (Wave or Friendly Lower Hands) Emote until they calm down
Then add food to your last slot and feed them - If you dont feed them or you hurt or startle them, then they will get angry again (run away at this point) and they will need to relax before you can use the emote again.
This may take practice
How to use an Emote

Add TamingMode=0
Options (0,1,2)
0 = Both walking and knockout
1= Walking tame only
2= Knockout tame only

I added a short video showing how to calm the NPCs down using the wave emote

Discussions Link

While the NPCs are harvesting they will go to their respective storage items and deposit items and resources that they have harvested.

Club -- CampFire,Preserving Bin,Storage

The NPCs will also remove made items and transfer items to where they go, Cooked Meat to Preserving Bin, Iron Ingots to Storage Box and so on.

If you do not require this add NoResourceManagement=1 to the GUS.ini -- help link below
DeliveryDelay=120 - is time in seconds that they check to deposit items
StorageItemsSearchRadius=15 - (Range in meters from the start position that the NPC will look for storage items)

I added a short video showing how to use Resource Management

Added HarvestDamage=10 (0 to 100) Default is 10, the higher the number the more damage you make.

How to get them Harvesting
To get them to harvest goto the menu select Harvesting and enable harvest resources
Then select Send Harvesting then select the range you want them to stay around.

They will not harvest if they are set to follow.
They will start as soon as you get them to not follow.
Even if they leave the area chasing enemys they will return back to where they were told to harvest.

To get them to harvest in a new area just take them to the area and tell them to harvest again
