Temp Building Mod

2017-4-16: Things look okay to me except the Temp Vaults are still the old size. Comment if you have any other issues.

2017-4-15: I've been informed that the Mod is no longer working. My guess is that they moved files around. I'll take a look and try to get it back up and working.

Temp Building Mod v2.4 (2016-03-07)

A mod that allows you to place temporary structures to test out placement.

All engrams are available at Level 0 and cost 0 Engram Points.
Each structure costs 1 Thatch to build and has 1 hit point.

All Structures can be either punched or demolished to remove.

List of Structures supported:

Let me know if you have any suggestions!

Patch Notes:
Making a minor change to the Temp Pillar to attempt to fix an issue.

Temp Industrial Cooker can now be placed freely (doesn't require a pipe to snap to)! Then just add a pipe to it and you can upgrade it in place (it requires it be snapped to something in order to upgrade).

Added Crop Plots! Also removed XP gains from inclined water pipes.

Bug fix: Feeding Trough was causing crashes.

Added 40 new structures, separated Replaceable and Non-Replaceable structures, and updated all icons.

Any chance of adding platform and platform wedges to the temp mod? Still works great for me by the way in sp.

+1 For the Jayjay comment. That will really improve the building system. Refer to an other game with building system absolutly perfect in my opinion : The Forest

you should make it to where you can like, build onto it with actual walls and stuff like its a blueprint and eventually make it a permanent shelter. i think that would be really helpful for the people (like me) who aren't gifted when it comes to building

Monkey Magic, same!
:( We need a mod for that.

When I first saw this, I thought it meant "temp" as in "template." Would have been nice to drop a template down, and fill in the blanks for building large towns. But this isn't how this mod works, is it?

My server has been running this mod since 2.4. Unfortunately the new changes made the options to build anything disappear. I'm hoping that you come back soon! Also great job so far!

Hey, with the new changes, this mod doesn't work. Is there anyway you can fix that?

Hey folks, just wanted to let you know that I'm not playing much ARK these days. I'm leaving the mod in place and may come back to it. My expectation is that it will continue to work unless WC drastically changes things.
I'll keep an eye on the comments here in case someone reports it breaking.
Thanks for all the support!
