Cross-Genesis 1

This mod adds dinos from the Genesis simulation to other official maps, and unlocks Genesis engrams on all ARKs.

Mod ID: 2024119790

  • Engrams added with Genesis: Part 1 update can be unlocked on any map.
  • Tekgrams added with Genesis: Part 1 update are unlocked automatically by default.
  • Dinos added with Genesis: Part 1 update now spawn on maps that use vanilla spawning group containers.
  • Nests and Eggs via a mechanic native to Magmasaurs: when nearby one of the predefined spots, Magmasaurs will spawn eggs (and a nest if necessary).
  • Get Ambergris from Astrocetus or by mining oil rocks (Mining Drill works best).
  • Wild Astrocetus are visible on any map.

  • I don't see any dinos: If this is an existing save file, you may need to control the population of other dinos in an area or the game won't spawn any more dinos. As an option other than massive virtual dino-genocide, you can try using DestroyWildDinos cheat.
  • Is the DLC needed: No, it's not.
  • Magmasaurs don't lay eggs: After a couple of them spawns, leave the area so they can enter stasis. Return to the area after some time (83 minutes?) and a nest will probably have spawned, with an egg.
  • What are the spawn codes for creatures: Only wild Magmasaurs are modified to include some fixes, their class names are given in the Configuration thread. For others, check the spawning codes on the
  • X-Creatures don't seem as powerful as on Genesis: That's right. They utilize map-wide multipliers with an opt-in mechanism, and those multipliers aren't set on other maps.
  • No Magmasaurs on The Island: You'll need to enable the custom spawners settings; check the configuration thread for that. This is unfortunately required as there is no way to target the volcano only.
  • What do you mean by Astrocetus being "visible" again: In vanilla game the whales are only sent to players on dedicated servers if the players have an area buff from Genesis 1's Lunar Biome.
  • I found a bug: I'd prefer if you'd create a thread in Discussions rather than write a comment, as it allows for a more organized way to track the problem.

  • Thanks for adding most of the spawns, translating the description to Spanish, and providing most source graphics for this page, Arle!
  • Thanks for challenging me with Ferox on Valguero mod, The Wayward Wolf!

I play Ragnarok with all the wild dinos at lvl 500 but the magmasaurs are all lvl 1. How do I get them to be lvl 500?

No you do not need DLC for this to work

Do i need the dlc or no?

Not sure if this mod does it, but the proper integration of BP's and items to the other map's beacons would be a massive plus for this mod. My issue is that without leaving the map I'm on, I can't get ascendent gear like the mining drill(assuming it isn't integrated). This makes the mod not feel fully integrated which is the whole point if you ask me. minor yet huge thing imho.

Magmasaurs on the island only spawn at low levels, even though my difficulty is 10, is there a fix?
If I spawn in high level Magmasaurs will they lay eggs?
