Description
Compound Bow Plus is a modification for ARK Survival Evolved that adds new arrows for the Compound Bow. This uses the existing Compound Bow in ARK. You do *not* need to craft a new Compound Bow to use with these arrows, existing Compound Bows will work fine.

PLEASE NOTE! This Mod is no longer being actively supported and is provided as-is.
Due to my health I no longer have the energy to keep this mod updated. If you are a modder and you wish to take this mod over then please contact me and we can discuss it.

In this initial alpha release I have made available the Tranq Metal Arrow and the Drain Metal Arrow. As this is an alpha features are still being implemented and it is expected that their will be issues or problems with this and future versions.

Tranq Metal Arrow

The Tranq Metal Arrow allows you to more easily knock dinosaurs unconscious. The Tranq Metal Arrow is barely affected by armour and makes tranqing other players, even in full flak armour, much easier! Be careful when using on wild dinosaurs though as the high damage will kill many dinosaurs with a single hit. While this arrow will knock dinosaurs out much faster than any other tranq ammo available in the game, it will does much more damage.

This arrow does a base of 53 damage and x10 torpor (x2.5 torpor instantly and x7.5 torpor over 10 seconds). The effects scale with damage dealt. The damage dealt is adjusted based on factors including how long your draw the bow for, what part of the target your arrow hits and modifiers such as the targets armour. Based on feedback these figures will be adjusted for balance so please comment if you feel they are too weak or strong.

The Tranq Metal Arrow Engram can be learnt at Level 70, costs 1 engram point and requires you already having learnt Compound Bow, Metal Arrow and Narcotic. It can be crafted in your inventory and costs x1 Metal Arrow and x5 Narcotics. When you pickup the arrow from the environment it will return x1 Metal Arrow to your inventory.

Drain Metal Arrow

The Drain Metal Arrow rapidly decreases the stamina of the target and makes it both hungry and thirsty. The Drain Metal Arrow is barely affected by armour! When used on dinosaurs prior to knocking them unconscious this will make them untameable. They can be used on dinosaurs after they have been knocked unconscious, at the expense of taming effectiveness from the damage given by the arrow.

This arrow does a base of 53 damage. Currently it decreases Stamina by x1, Food by x0.005 and Water by x1. The effects scale with damage dealt. In testing this equated to -100 food, -100 stamina and -100 water when hitting a raptor's body. Based on feedback these figures will be adjusted for balance so please comment if you feel they are too weak or strong.

The Drain Metal Arrow Engram can be learnt at Level 70, costs 1 engram point and requires you already having learnt Compound Bow and Metal Arrow. It can be crafted in your inventory and costs x1 Metal Arrow and x5 Rare Mushrooms. When you pickup the arrow from the environment it will return x1 Metal Arrow to your inventory.

(I'm open to better name ideas for this arrow! I think the name could be improved)

Harpoon Metal Arrow

The Harpoon Metal Arrow rapidly adds to the weight of the target. The Harpoon Metal Arrow is barely affected by armour! When used on dinosaurs this will make them slow down, or possibly even stop! These arrows are *MUCH* heavier than normal metal arrows, weigh x5 more (2 weight per arrow) and only stack into stacks of 5. The arrows will affect players, unconscious dinosaurs and tamed dinosaurs but not wild dinosaurs (ARK bug: in our testing wild dinosaurs don't seem to change their speed/behaviour based on their weight).

This arrow does a base of 53 damage. Currently it increases weight by x3 over 10 seconds, while simitaneously reducing weight by x3 over 60 seconds. In testing this worked out to roughly +290~ weight when it peaked. Based on feedback these figures will be adjusted for balance so please comment if you feel they are too weak or strong.

The Harpoon Metal Arrow Engram can be learnt at Level 70, costs 1 engram point and requires you already having learnt Compound Bow and Metal Arrow. It can be crafted in your inventory and costs x1 Metal Arrow, x100 Stone and x1 Rare Flower (even the smell of this flower makes you slightly angry). When you pickup the arrow from the environment it will return x1 Metal Arrow to your inventory.

Future Metal Arrow Ideas

Ideas for other arrows to be added to this mod in due course. I'm hoping for feedback from those who have given it a go to help keep this mod balanced, useful and entertaining. Read the discussion for the current list:

Future Compound Bow Ideas

While I intend to focus on a greater variety of arrows in the short term, I am also interested in creating a better version of the Compound Bow. Read the discussion for other bow ideas:

Cheat Codes

Please find the cheat codes for this mod here:
http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/discussion/604581285/451852225133109114/

ModID

The ModID for this mod is: 604581285

If you are running this mod on a dedicated server you must specify this mod ModID as a commandline arguement GameModIds=604581285 or as ActiveMods=604581285 in GameUserSettings.ini. You only need to specify it as a commandline arguement -OR- in the ini file - not both :) If you have another mod running then use a comma to separate the mod numbers. This mod is stackable and can be called last.

Verson History

Alpha v0.32 - Another attempt to fix the issue with the engrams showing correctly in the Ark engram menu. Reverted the Level, GameMode, GameState and PrimalGameData blueprint files to the default and re-customized to see if that will fix the problem.
Alpha v0.31 - Adjusted the way that the mod is cooked to resolve an issue where some players were unable to see the engrams on their server.
Alpha v0.3 - Added Harpoon Metal Arrow. Fixed Drain and Tranq Metal Arrows sometimes consuming existing Drain and Tranq Metal Arrows when crafting. Tranq Metal Arrows now apply x2.5 torpor on impact and x7.5 torpor over 10 seconds (previously it was x7.5 torpor on impact and x2.5 torpor over 5 seconds). Drain Metal Arrows now reduce stamina, food and water over 10 seconds as a multiplier of damage (previously it was instantly to zero) - they also cause wild dinosaurs hit with them to become untamable (you can use them on wild dinosaurs to help taming AFTER the dinosaur is unconscious, but not before). This should make the Drain Metal Arrows more useful against players and less abusable for speeding up the taming process.
Alpha v0.2 - Added Drain Metal Arrow. Reduced damage of Tranq Metal Arrow.
Alpha v0.1 - Added Tranq Metal Arrow.

Can you make this work better with Stacks Plus? I'd love to modify the weight of the arrows, but have absoultely no idea how. Also would love if they stacked as high as metal arrows go in Stacks Plus.

can you make these crafted in the smithy/fabricator to make it more realistic. And i believe the tranq arrows are too strong, they do more than double the tranq dart in narco power, I believe the power should be no more than 1.5x the power of a dart.

Haven't tried this but it looks like just what our server needs a we remove extinction. A well balanced looking way of faster taming I would only wonder if the costs could be tweaked a little on the arrows to make them more costly as 1 narcotic really wouldn't be more effective on a metal arrow then a wood one

Is this mod still being updated?

An arrow fired from a crossbow does 70 torpor + 87.5 torpor over 4 sec so a total of 157.5 torpor every 4 seconds if had an arrow hit it every 4 seconds exactly. For your tranq metal arrow you gave me x's I don't understand x's :steamsad:
