Animals Of Atlas

Mod ID: 1654255131

Ciao! Welcome to Animals of Atlas, the mod that adds the Animals of Atlas into Ark.

This mod imports Atlas Creatures into Ark, giving them their own identity and abilities. The focus will be largely on the actual animals of Atlas rather than the more fantastical monsters, although I may add them in eventually.

For the current abilities of the creatures added, spawn codes, and future thoughts and plans for the Atlas creatures, please see here:

SPAWN CODES HERE >> Stuff that's in and future plans << SPAWN CODES HERE

Where'd that come from? Oh! It's always been here!

If you encounter a bug with this mod, please let me know all about it here:

Everyone has their own tastes or are just spoiled (perfect example: Managarmr which before nerfs it invalidated every other travel mount and made PvP extremely broken and boring). People are angry if you take something from them and that's normal I guess. I've tried Marnii's Wildlife mod (which has Atlas chickens btw) and I can safely say it is mainly for RP purposes so there's an option.
What I like about this mod and additionals from Better Dinos is that creatures are balanced stat-wise with vanilla ones - only mods known to me. I have AC mods by Shadlos and they made me sad when dinos didn't "blend" well with base game even though they add more prehistoric life to the game. Aside from that you gave us new mechanics - a lackluster in Ark creatures and mainly this thing alone attracted me to both of your works.
Just keep up the wonderful work and I can't wait for another flyer. The Ludo is fun to use, basically an upgraded Pteranodon but i'm curious what ideas you have for Vulture.

I'm off for a Chicken tame on Ragnarok right now. :) Two thumbs up Kraken:1, I love it. People have dodos as little egg layers already, and as you say it's neither an RP mod nor a realistic simulation. I guess some people are obsessive about their pixels. :)

Yeah, deep breath taken, and chill. I'm just irked that a lot of work went into this update, the Ludo being launched, the Icons that a lot of people put really good work into that I would love to have noted, and instead the only response here is 'Muh chickens!' when prior to this all I've had on chicks is 'How do I disable them? I prefer Maarnis.' which is fine, Maarni is doing really good stuff and specifically catering to the RP crowd, and as I said below, for anyone who only wants a farm with chickens and cows just to wander around and be there, then I highly recommend Maarnis and I am doing all I can on my end to ensure that the two are different so that running both is an option without having to play around with Ini to remove conflicts for essentially the same things, just as I have always done with Shads. I've never claimed the goal of this mod to be realism, or an ideal RP xp, I just want the neat Atlas creatures in Ark to muck around and have fun within game and dev kit

Ignore the critics. The mod is great.

The Squid in Atlas was the size of the Tusoteuthis in Ark, I don't recall you or anyone else objecting that it was made smaller. I've seen no complaints that I plan to make the vulture larger and rideable. Various other creatures have been resized and otherwise tweaked to be more useful, frankly I will continue to make and call this mod however and whatever I choose to, and if you're not happy with it then feel free to hit the unsubscribe button.

i would love to have what your smoking.. first of all. you call the mod animals of atlas.. it is no longer that if you are changing them so far from what they were in atlas.. second. the giant fowl.. were not chickens.. didnot look like chickens.. they looked closer to ostriches and rheas and the like. so you might want to consider changing the name of your mod .. since it is no longer what it was..
Kraken:1  [author] May 30 @ 8:29pm 
This mod contains machine gun penguins, farting pigs, and invisible dinosaurs, but giant fowl which actually did exist is where you draw the realism line?
Hawkra May 30 @ 8:19pm 
honestly.. how can you call it.. animals of atlas.. if you have changed the chickens so much? . i liked the chickens. i had them running around my island to clean up brush and such.. i dont want giant chickens.. which there is no such thing they are ugly.. not realistic. might as well call them a re-skinned terror bird or whatever the others are called..
