Difficulty 34++

What does this mod do?
It's simply sets the difficulty to 34...
Which enables dinosaurs to spawn from level 1 and up to 1080 in the wild
+ Enables players to reach level 680 and adds enough engrams to learn everything 4-5 times

What exactly has been edited?
4 values in total across 2 files have been edited
  • Experience Points for Level - 600 new entries all with XP added (Will upload the table I've used at some point)
  • Player Level Engram Points - 600 new entries so you get engrams for each new level
  • Difficulty Value Max - Changed to 34 (30 more then the default highest)
  • Override Max Experience Points Player - Changed to 10182833 so you can actually reach level 680 (Will upload the table I've used at some point)

Known issues?
  • You (might) need to load this as first priority for it to work
  • You (might) need to make new character to be able to reach the new player level @ 680
  • If you're difficulty isn't at 1.0 only player levels will work...
    - You'll need you're difficulty at 1.0 for dinosaurs to spawn up to 1080

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
since they spawn from 1 to 1080... chances are the first one you spawn will be a higher level the normally

Dino levels are working... but I'm stuck at level 80 :( Why can't I reach level 680 ?
If you're stuck at the normal 80 it might be because something is missing from the GameUserSettings.ini ->


If you don't have the above in you're GameUserSettings.ini then simply add to the bottom and that should fix you're problem

Dino levels are working... but I'm stuck at level xxx :( Why can't I reach level 680 ?
If you're stuck at some other level then 80, then it's most likely cause you've had edited you're GameUserSettings.ini and/or Game.ini to raise the level cap before adding this.
See if you can find; OverrideMaxExperiencePointsPlayer anywhere not related to this mod
And simply remove when found... make sure not to remove the section related to this mod (Look above)
Alternatively you might have had some level cap .ini which enabled you to reach the level you're now stuck at
In case you've had that... removing it completely should fix you're problem.

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?


I'm running this mod, could I please be added to the list above?
Yeah... feel free to post you're information in the comments below and I'll add it when I see it
In case I do not see don't be afraid to double post you're information... just make sure other people have actually posted before you "double" post

Note: This version will become obsolete... so please change to one of the other versions

Difficulty 6 (Level 180 Dinosaurs)
Difficulty 8 (Level 240 Dinosaurs)
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)

Note: This version will become obsolete... so please change to one of the other versions

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...

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

this mod isn't working on the new extinction DLC

Pretty sure the mod series is abandonded however it still works if anyone is wondering. Eventually it may not work anymore but the dev has no intention of updating these mods.

The dev says he will update when the threadripper is released but it's been out for a long time and the mods have not been updated since it was first released in 2015.

Anyone having issues with incorrect levels, read the description fully and check your INI files accordingly. I've had to manually edit a few lines in the INI files just as the description says and once I did that, everything worked perfectly.
