Auction House Addon: Dino Preview

Mod ID: 1466110784

What is it?

This is an addon that can be installed alongside the Auction House core mod that will allow players to preview dinos (items coming soon) in real-time when browsing auctions.

Why is it a map extension?

Cooking the mod as a map extension provides additional control related to lighting that simply can't be achieved with a normal mod. When cooked normally, the lighting for the preview scene couldn't be modified, which caused the scene to be affected by day and night cycles.

While this sounds cool in theory it was quite the opposite in practice. :) We would like add a toggle for day/night lighting within the preview panel at some point.

I had a weird interaction with this today. I was previewing a Karkinos and then got disconnected. When I logged back, the game had spawned the Karkinos that was showing as tamed, but hostile, similar to an unclaimed dino.

I could not interact with it and had to remove it from the world using the DestroyMyTarget command.

I've fixed the motion blur issue and an issue with preview dinos not despawning correctly, however, I introduced a new bug where dino previews don't work > 40,000 units from 0,0,0. I'll fix this tomorrow night. I'm quite sleepy atm. :)
