New custom models and animation. Better and server adjustable damage, smart targeting, pvp alerts, and metal tier too.
★ Adds Tranq Photon Rifle with server adjustable torpor.
★ Adds Photon Sentry turrets with higher damage, server adjustable too.
★ Metal tier but vulnerable to rockets.
★ Very effective against larger beasts or tough modded beasts.
★ Clean and stackable with other mods.

Tranq Photon Rifle:
  1. Custom new cool model with animations and sniper scope.
  2. For Taming dinos, torpor dealt is fully adjustable in server settings below. Very ineffective against players.
  3. Requires Photon Cores extracted from Batteries as ammo. Crafts ammo in bulk.
  4. Shoots a paralyzing photon beam that does higher torpor and slows enemy speed.(Default 2,000 torpor, adjustable see server settings)

Admin Spawn Codes

  • Default settings are well balanced already, but to customize see Server Settings section below.
  • Smart Targeting: Fishes like Coel,Piranha,Trilobite are left alive and ignored by sentry.
  • Sentry Autoclear Corpses: When activated and batteried, will auto destroy enemy dino corpses that die on it. If pet inventory will drop.

  • Max of 3 Battery stacks in turret, each stack is 100. Every extra stack increases Bonus Damage by one level.
  • Server setting Bonus Damage Level tier 1 to 7: Max HP damage dealt is 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%, 30%, 35%, 40% respectively.
  • Admins may wish to turn off Bonus Damage in settings, see below.
  • Sentry firing rate adjustable too. Further powered outlet range by triple.
  • Enemies hit by beams will be slowed with brief paralysis for 1.3 seconds.
  • Sentry is Metal Tier and can only be damaged by explosives, weakness is rockets. (Ark original turret is not metal)
  • Recommend Pair with the faster Ark's turrets which can help shoot down incoming rockets.
  • Crafting Sentry Turret costs 200 metal ingot, 150 obsidian, 80 electronic, 80 pearls, 80 crystal.

  • AnglerGel is harvested from deep sea AnglerFish or crafted in a Gel-O-Matic.

Server Settings
Paste this section after end of your server's GameUserSettings.ini and edit default values.
Further Damage Setting examples: Click here for Damage Settings Info.
    See Pinned Topic in discussion for better in-depth explanation. Values cannot be 0, use -1 instead to disable.
  1. BaseDamage: Controls Flat damage each shot per FireInterval. (By Comparison: Ark default AutoTurret does 70 flat damage, per 0.35 sec interval. Or 200 DPS). Feel free to adjust yourself.
  2. DamageMultiplier: Controls Bonus percentage of BaseDamage that multiplies with added battery stacks. Default value of 1 is 100%,
    E.g. if BaseDamage = 600, then 3 stacks = 1800 damage. But if DamageMultiplier = 0.5, then 600 x 3 x 50% = 1200 damage per shot.
  3. BonusTierDamage: Integer from 1 to 8, default is 1, recommended 1 or 2. (Or -1 to Disable) Controls extra dmg of Target's MaxHp% per shot. Higher = More Dmg. Value chart: Default 1 = (0%, 0%, 5% per battery stack). 2 = (0%, 5%, 10% per stack). 3 = (5%, 10%, 15% per stack) and so on. This percent hp dmg is meant to counter insanely high health dinos.
  4. FireInterval: Sentry firing delay in seconds. Higher shoots slower and vice versa.
  5. DisableTribeAlert: Default false announces pvp alert message to all tribe members when shot at enemy player, displaying enemy player name and tribe. Set true to disable this feature.
  6. BlockPlatformBuild: Set true forces sentry unable to build on platform saddles. Default false allows.
  7. RifleTorpMultiplier: Controls Rifle Gun Torpor per shot. Default 5.0 = 2,000 Torpor per shot. Scales with value, each adjust by 1.0 will raise / lower Torp by 400. (E.g. value 10.0 = 4,000 Torp)

I like the underwater world very much. I hope I can do the diving mirror MOD, filter out the blue light in the water, and restore the true color. Thank you.

Hey ̀͠͏̡FennecFox̖̲͕ thank you for the great mod, been using it for years now! My friends and i are wondering if you wouldn't mind adding a "Battery Distribution Box" to auto fill turrets within a range, not automatically but by command via button on interface. Again thanks for the great mod!!!!!!
