Better Spawns

Mod ID: 2064588662
Ragnarok's bountiful high levels are brought to every map.

If you've ever been on one of the official maps (Island / Scorched / etc) you might know how annoyingly tedious it can be to find a high level creature. It's way easier on Ragnarok, right? Not with this mod! The mod essentially takes the same level weightings from Ragnarok and applies them to anything else, which means you'll find higher level dinos more frequently.

Without completely destroying the game balance, this mod can allow you to skip a little bit of the "searching" phase and focus more on taming. Let's be honest, ARK is grindy and time consuming enough without having to spend long hours hunting down that perfect 150.

Please Note:
I'm a complete devkit novice and I was just trying to change something that's bothered me for a while now. I welcome feedback and appreciate critiques. I might not have accounted for everything and the mod may have some issues. If so, I'm sorry - I'll try to fix it, but there's no guarantee that I'll be able to.

Technical Stuff
This mod works solely in the background which means it doesn't have any immediate visual effects, doesn't add any items, and is very light. If you use a mod with a dino scan, you should notice that there are no level 5, 10, 30, 35, 40, 65, 70, 75, 80, 105, 110, 115, 120 or 125 (if using difficulty 5) creatures. You may have to perform a dino wipe after installing the mod.

This mod does not stack with Equalized Dino Levels or High Level, and likely other spawn-weight changing mods.

No existing creatures will be affected, and the mod can be uninstalled easily without any lasting impacts. Your wild dinos will just resume spawning as normal.

This mod does NOT remove low level creatures altogether, it just makes higher level creatures a bit more common.

Modded creatures are affected by this mod, as well as modded maps. Feel free to use the mod for any purpose!

@L. - yes, level 150 was an example. It'll adjust the spawn weights exactly the same way on any other max level. So if your max level is 180, for example, you'll see more in that 156-180 range. If your max level is 300, you'll see more in the 260-300.

my max level is not 150, will this apply to anything above 150?

@Wilco_90 - I'm pretty sure Primal Fear just does that by itself, regardless of the levels they spawn at, but I'm no expert on that mod. No, there is no way to exclude a creature. The only thing this mod does is shift the WEIGHTS of spawn levels, but it does NOT change the min or max level that creatures spawn at.

I would recommend checking your server settings.

Is there a way to exclude a mod or modded dino's? For single player I now get primal fear dino's with milions of hp and torpor.

Hey, is there any way to turn level 5 spawns back on to get 0 stats for breeding?
