Improved Phoenix (Remap/Conversion)

This mod adds a new phoenix that remaps wild spawns with my modded version that comes with tons of additions and features while also allowing you to convert back to vanilla or modded at any time.

-Tamed Phoenix can breed.
-Tamed Phoenix can land (with flying animations).
-Tamed Phoenix can eat metal/metalingots (babies can only eat sulfur or raw metal).
-Tamed Phoenix will no longer consume as much food/stamina while in charge mode.
-Tamed Phoenix can burn wood into charcoal.
-Tamed Phoenix can grind items into metal at 80% of the crafting materials returned.
-Tamed Phoenix have weight reduction on some items such as metal and wood.
-Tamed Phoenix will prevent fire damage on riders from other creatures.
-Tamed Phoenix will give riders and nearby players an insulation buff that keeps you warm.
-Tamed Phoenix if killed, will come back to life as a baby after 5 minutes in place of it's ashes.
-Tamed Phoenix has armor.
-Wild Phoenix can use the fireball attack which has increased range, speed and damage.
-Wild Phoenix is agressive and will attack everything in it's path.
-Wild Phoenix can be netgunned.
-Wild Phoenix taming is slightly faster and takes less flamethrowers or explosives to tame one.
-Wild Phoenix flame damage debuff now only lasts 3 seconds on players.
-Wild Phoenix can now be found outside of heatwaves.
-The Phoenix is now faster and gets more movement speed based on imprint levels.
-You can now equip weapons while mounted on a Phoenix.
-You will no longer slide off the back of a Phoenix when dismounting from it.
-The Phoneix will no longer get glitched from magmasaurs when they try to force nearby fliers to fall which was also affected outside of this mod.

Map Spawns
Currently the Phoenix can spawn on the following maps with plans to add more in the future.
  • Scorched Earth
  • The Center
  • Ragnarok
  • Lost Island
  • Fjordur

The Phoenix will spawn on any map that shares the following spawn containers.


INI Options

ConvertToMod and ConvertToVanilla when changed to False will remove the conversion option from the radial wheel.

PreventClone is for servers with dupe protection that gives you a new creature ID every time you convert it.

A script command was added allowing admins to force a nearby tamed Phoenix to land which can be activated by typing "cheat scriptcommand ForceLand" without the quotes, but keep in mind this only works until a certain distance from the ground.

Spawn Codes
cheat SpawnDino "Blueprint'/Game/Mods/ImprovedPhoenix/Dinos/ImprovedPhoenix_Character_BP.ImprovedPhoenix_Character_BP'" 500 0 0 150

A dino wipe is recommended after installing.

taming level bonus are missing after tame, if i tame a level 150 it tames at that level besides 100% taming effectiveness

Is there a way to only have them spawn during a heat wave like in vanilla? Kinda takes the challenge out of taming them if you have all the time in the world.

Tamed with a net gun and fire wyvern breath.
Phoenix taming bonus was missing.

Can you please add ini options to disable netgunning and spawning outside of heatwaves?

I absolutely love this mod, it makes the phoenix relevant again! I was wondering if it would actually be possible to give it the gliding flight like the one of the snow owl and desmodus?

@Shinygati Alright awesome, yeah they started spawning near the volcano after a few minutes. Also this mod for the phoenix, to tame it, its the same as vanilla phoenix correct?

@XDMangoJanog The ini configs are mostly for servers, they spawn at the volcano on Fjordur.

I'm not too familiar with all the coding for the spawns in Ark, where does the Phoenix spawn in Fjoudur? Also is it necessary to change something in the ini first before trying to find one? I already did the dinowipe so thats not an issue

This looks amazing. Thank you for making this, I've noticed Phoenix mods have become outdated and abandoned. Also really glad you added their spawns to fjordur.

@Psdyryn82 This is a steam problem and has nothing to do with the mod, either your server or the players trying to connect have not updated the mod, i would suggest resubscribing if there are still issues after restarting the server.
