Custom Dino Levels

New and improved level distribution mod with more options, ini configurable, and works with vanilla AND modded dinos!
Sick of spending hours on end searching for that elusive high level dino? Do you love the Island map, but hate how heavily skewed the dino levels are toward the low end? This mod fixes those issues by altering dino level distributions and gives you the ability to choose from having Ragnarok like levels, equalizing all dino levels, or skewing the dino levels toward the high end instead of the low end. Via .ini settings, you can even tailor the specific level ranges you wish to have spawn. Best of all, this mod works on all maps and works for BOTH vanilla AND modded dinos!

For all the details for how this mod works, check out the Q&A and “How to: Using the ini configs” discussions.

Does this work with dedicated servers? Wondering if it's okay to use until genesis part 2.

I cannot figure out how to add Jerboa's to this!! :WL_Sad: Can someone give me the correct text I need to do this? Other than that, this mod is working wonderfully for me.

Set MaxDifficulty=False in Game.ini and set OverrideOfficialDifficulty=1.0 in GameUserSettings.ini. Then you can specify your desired min and max levels with this mods settings.

Might be an odd question but is there a way to make dinos spawn at ALL levels? What I mean is if I have a max difficulty of 150 the default is that levels are in increments of 5 but I want them to be in increments of 1. Meaning on a server with levels ranging from 1-150 I could find a level 55 but also a level 56, 57, 58 or 59.

i got a new pc so it reset all my ini files and now i cant get it to work, i mean the mod just does nothing not even when i change something like the movement speed i get per level.

I am using the ark ascended version of this mod. I play with my difficulty offset to 10 (max level 300,) However after adding this mod, I do not get any creatures that spawn over 150. It seems to be working in regard to the max being 150, but I should be seeing 270 instead of 135, 280 instead of 140, etc...

It is a nitrado server. Both in the server configuration and the ini the overrideofficialdifficulty is 10, and I was getting creatures up to 300 before adding this mod, but they were too rate (hence why I added the mod...)
