Explorer Note Tracker - Universal

As a imersive solution for making the Story and Lore of Ark more accessible I created this small mid-game tool that will make the hunt for Explorer Notes more interesting, like Geocaching, enticing expeditions to areas you would not visit otherwise.

This tool will show the direction and distance to the closest explorer note. When collected the next closest note is targeted.

When the Tracker is equipped it will update the already collected Notes on the map.

Pressing M will open an interactive map that shows the locations of all notes and can be sorted by already found, missing or ignored notes. Also filtered by author, name and distance and can be used to select a specific note to locate.

The tracker now also shows the height difference to the targeted Note.

This version of the Note tracker mod will now work on all maps, even modded (accuracy may vary).

Using the UI it is possible to target a specific Note, either already found or missing ones.

If the Note is in an Cave you cant reach or you want to keep the XP booost for later you can add Notes to an ignore list and get them at a later time.

If the Tracker leads you somewhere you can\'t reach or can\'t find any container, you probably found a HLN-A Note. Equip the skin to trigger it (may take a few seconds). Or add it to the ignore list to continue with the next closest.

Now it can also track Glitches on the Genesis maps.
If a Glitch was collected, the tracker has to be unequipped and taken out to refresh the list and stop tracking the last one.
Sadly the state of glitches can not be tracked, so when a glitch is fixed it has to be added to the ignored list.

For Genesis 2 there are some Notes that are triggered at different locations. I think this is intented and not a bug in the tracker ;)

In general, it works well. But the filters on the map don't work.

If there were cave markers, it would be perfect.

it works well, but it can be a bit finicky if you are using it on a cluster. And it doesn't work for runes at all.
