Hallo, and welcome to Kraken's Better Dinos.
This mod aims to improve vanilla dino utility, and improve quality of life for all of our favourite dino friends.
On installing this mod you will immediately notice various changes take effect on vanilla dinos, some may be small tweaks, some may be complete overhauls, but all are done with the intention of improving the vanilla-ish gameplay experience. By and large base dino stats will not be effected unless specified. The aim is not to make OP dinos, but to make dinos that are either nicer to use, or are brought more in line with how they were described in the dossiers.
Where to find info about what this mod does, including spawn codes, details about dino changes and items added:
All the relevant info about Kraken's Better Dinos can be found either in the Guide, or if it's not in the Guide which is still a work in progress it will be in one of the pinned discussion threads which are linked here for your convenience;
Can you please do such and such, please, please, pretty please???
This mod will be developed along my own particular vision of what can be done to make dinos better, however please do not be afraid to make suggestions, all I ask is that you make them in this thread here:
I won't be bending over backwards to incorporate every suggestion made, but a good idea is always welcome.
Will this mod affect my Alpha Primeaval Super Elemental Giga Dodorex from X Mod?
No. This mod will only effect vanilla dinos and will not make any changes to dinos introduced by other mods. The exception here is that there is full compatibility with my own Addition Aberrant Dinos mod and some compatibilities with mods whose authors I work closely with such as No Untameables by Myrmecoleon.
Will this mod revert the flyer nerf?
Remember when it said here that it won't? Well now it will! This is optional, you must use the AllowFlyerSpeed=True Ini option. This goes in the GameUserSettings.Ini and must be placed underneath the [BetterDinos] header. This will then grant you the ability to manually convert Wyverns, Argents, Pteranodons, Moths, Griffins, Tapejaras, and Pelagornis' into versions that are able to be levelled in Speed, simply go into the Options section of the flyer radial menu and select 'Convert To Speed ...'
All converted speed enabled Flyers will gain 2% speed per level, and will gain up to 20% speed from imprinting. Converted Speed Flyers are unique classes to the BD mod, and therefore if removing the mod they will be lost, however you will have the ability to convert them back to Vanilla/Better at any time. Doing so will see any points put into speed refunded. Setting the AllowFlyerSpeed option to False after already having it set to True will see all converted Speed Flyers automatically converted back to Vanilla/Better and points spent into speed refunded. All Speed enabled Flyers also retain their BD buffs.
If you have any issues with using this mod, please let me know here:
I will update the first post there with known issues, so please check to see if your problem is already known of before reposting.
