Difficulty 6+

What does this mod do?
  • Sets the difficulty max to 6...
    - Which enables dinosaurs to spawn from level 1 and up to 180 in the wild
  • Enables you to set your very own player and dino cap level (Up to 4201)
    - Added 4119 new entries for both players, dinos and engrams in this
  • Enables you to learn all engrams / everything and then some*
    *Unlike the "normal" Difficulty 6 this comes with engram points... 50 for each new player level above 80
    - So depending on what level you set you'll be able to learn everything and then some

What exactly has been edited?
6 values in total across 2 files have been edited
  • Difficulty Value Max - Changed to 6 (1.5 higher then the default highest)
  • Experience Points for Level - 4119 new entries all with XP added (4201 in total)
    - Which enables you to select own level cap from 1 and up to 4201... for both players and tamed dinos
  • Player Level Engram Points - 4119 new entries so you get 50 engrams for each new player level (4201 in total)

Known issues?
  • You (might) need to load this as first priority for it to work
  • You'll need you're difficulty at 1.0 for dinosaurs to spawn up to 180
  • You'll need to edit your Game.ini to be able to reach a higher level (Example: here)
    - Use: OverrideMaxExperiencePointsPlayer= to set a higer player level[]
    - Use: OverrideMaxExperiencePointsDino= to set higher dino level[]
  • You're stats might be "reset" after dying and/or a server restart...
    - Apparently there is some kind of cap on both players and dinos stats
Note: Engrams added to this version... you'll get 50 for each level above 80

What's the ID number for this mod?
515416876 - Installing mods on server (Guide)
What Game.ini should I edit for higher player and dino cap?
Single player @ ShooterGame\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\Game.ini
Windows Server @ ShooterGame\Saved\Config\WindowsServer\Game.ini
Linux Server @ ShooterGame\Saved\Config\LinuxServer\Game.ini

Will it work with other mods?
Yeah... this does however (might) require to be loaded as first priority to work
but the mod will stack with all functional mods that doesn't tamper with and/or messes up core system files...
You sure this is working? I can't find any dinos that are that high level
It's confirmed working both locally (/in single player) and on server...
Keep in mind this doesn't change you're already tamed dinos and/or the wild dinos that where there before added... only fresh spawns... so it might take some time to find them... but they should be there if it's loaded
You can always try to spawn a Dodo with; cheat summon Dodo_Character_BP_C
You should be able to spawn higher level the normally within the first few tries

Does this require server wipe?
No... doesn't require a wipe...

Will there be any issues if I decide to remove this at a later point
No... you dinos and levels will still be there after this is removed...
Note: Remember to do backup just in case

What servers are running this mod?

Difficulty 34 (Level 1080 Dinosaurs)
Difficulty 50 (Level 1500 Dinosaurs)
- You'll be able to select own level / player and dino cap on all versions (Up to 4201)

When will this be updated?
Still no eta. need new setup before I can do any editing
Planning on upgrading when the new threadripper CPU from AMD is out but not before...

So might still be a while... sorry...

MaxDinoBaseLevel= should fix that

Is there anyway to override the levels the boss minion's come in at? Using difficulty 34+ it was quite surprising to see level 3400 Araneos

I need help with getting read/write from .ini working... for easier setup... and more customization so that one mod can do what all the different ones did with simple settings.

If you're able to help please post here

I have difficulty 6+ on my SP and works on every map except Extinction. Is there anything related or is just from me?

I have added this mod and not completely sure if it works.
But i was wondering if there is a way to set the min lvls in the world.
Currently I see low levels dinos and want to change it to min:80 max:180. Is this possible??

If someone ran a lot of servers it could be a pita to edit all the inis?

@Lambsy Sure if you're lazy but the point is; why bother using mod and make the game consume more memory and what not to run? Sure, one small mod like this isn't a big deal and has pretty much no impact to the game performance what so ever, but you'll never know and after you pile up enough mods no matter how small; it will eventually start to weight on the game itself. This is why just editing things in configs would be a better choise.

I personally use multiple mods and I would not take any extras like this one since it is so easy to edit in config :)

I keep reading "you can do it youyrself"
I am here because i don,t know how to do it myself and don,t want to know how to do it myself and enjoy having it done 4 me .
A big pat on the back for the people who point out that you can do it yourself.
