Beacon Enhancer - This mod is stackable with other mods as long as they don\'t remap supply crates. This mod will work with all ark updates.
Works with any map that uses standard supply drops.
Works with Valguero.
Works with Scorched Earth (Level 70 drops are not currently altered but they will work as default level 70 Scorched Earth drops should).

The cave drops are similar to the ones from the sky but they offer a higher chance at a blueprint. Ocean drops aren\'t currently changed by this mod.

Thanks for letting me know. I didn't want to give away too much good stuff early game.

@KGM6911 Hey, the mod is great. Love the surprises. It was just early game that I got those Poop pig saddles.. Now I'm getting much better loot. Thanks

So, the mod was initially made for the Island map. It also works fully on the center. I've also made some changes to have it work of the DLC maps as well. Some of the DLC maps it will only work for certain color drops and then the rest of the drops will be vanilla to the map. If you tell me which color drops and what map you're dealing with I can check into it more. Also, look at the beacon before you open it and see if it has Beacon Enhancer in the name. There are many drops on the DLC maps that aren't modded.

So I have been having the issue that the mod is mainly dropping primitive trash and a lot of pheoma saddles lately. And the Blue drops are the only drops that seem to be worthwhile going for. Is anyone else noticing this?

Yes i am, and we are Valguero, thank you for the reply

@Whitlock: I don't think I ever did anything with the abberation ones. If you look at the beacon and it has Beacon Enhancer in the drop's name when you target it then it's modified.

@Cobra6Z: There aren't any .ini settings. Are you seeing Beacon Enhancer in the drop's name? What map are you using it on?

Hi @KGM6911 Ive been having an issue with the drops not dropping any other armor blueprint except the scuba and chitin, is there some kind of .ini i have to mess around with?

Question: Does this alter drop containers in the abberration zone?

Why do red drops only ever have Morello and mantis saddles, along with metal structures?
