Pet Finder

Find all your lost pets easily!
★ Ever lost a naughty pet chasing a player or dino to god knows where?
★ Use this to find them again! A must have for pet lovers ;)
★ Also recalls stuck flying pets in the air above you to land, use finder under it to call it down.
★ Light beacon can only be seen by owner player. Directional markers can be seen by anyone.
★ Clean and Stackable like all my mods.

  1. Finds stuck pets that were following you but somehow got stuck far away.
  2. Finds all pets tamed by you and your tribe, that are
    ★ Not being ridden.
    ★ Not too near you.
    ★ Not anywhere near your tribe's beds, at least 50 floor spaces away (adjustable).
  3. A beacon of yellow light will signal Tribe pets location (lasts 20 secs).
  4. A beacon of green light will signal Personal pets location.
  5. Directional markers will also light a horizontal path if you are too far away, follow them to the pet's direction (reuse every 10 secs).
  6. Pet Finder costs 0 points to learn. Costs 1 stone to craft.

Optional Server Setting:
  • BedPreventRange: Lower value will allow pet detection nearer to friendly beds, or vice versa. Default or unset will be 10000 range, roughly 50 floors. (Don't change if you don't know)
  • Paste below lines at end of your server's GameUserSettings.ini and edit default values:

ModID= 566887000

@Mekkie It should still point to them even if they are on follow, if it is not working then try a mod called Dino tracker. This mod was great in it's time but has not been updated in years, sometimes it works other times it doesn't.

Lost 2 dinos and cant find them, they were on follow to each other :( is there some config to edit to where it will still point to dinos who are on a follow command? Thanks :/

If the modder is still paying attention to this...

I LOVE this mod! It's been a LIFESAVER for finding stray dinos (they tend to survive me >.>)

However, it definately needs to be updated. My friends and I are experiencing repeated glitches with it where it keeps trying to lead us to dinos we don't own.

Just a note to say how much I appreciate this mod. Thankfully haven't had to use it much, but those few times saved me a lot of trouble and heartache. Thanks!
