Reusable Grappling Hook

Reusable Grappling Hook is a modification for ARK Survival Evolved that adds a version of the grappling hook that never runs out of ammo. Because Batman.

PLEASE NOTE! This Mod has been superseded by Reusable Plus. This mod is no longer being actively supported/updated and is being provided as-is. Please subscribe to Reusable Plus by following this link:
If you only wish to use the Reusable Grappling Hook from the Reusable Plus mod then you can disable the other engrams using the instructions available here:

Do you want to grapple up the steepest mountains? Effortlessly traverse the depths of TheIsland's caves? Or swing through the swamp like Tarzan bouncing from tree to tree? Then you've probably been frustrated by the expense and weight of carrying dozens of grappling hooks. That was, until now!

This modification adds an item called the Reusable Grappling Hook. This is an upgraded grappling hook that allows you to use each grappling hook more than once. Primary Fire to "Reel-In", Secondary Fire to "Reel-Out", Crouch to Detach, Jump + Reel-In to Vault-Jump! It requires you already know the Grappling Hook Engram, is fired from the Crossbow, weighs 10 (rather than 1), uses less of the crossbow's durability per shot compared to a normal grappling hook and can be crafted from within your player inventory. Plus you can use it as many times as you want - every time you use this ammo the Ark Gods put a brand new one back into your inventory. Otherwise the Reusable Grappling Hook is exactly the same as the regular Grappling Hook.

This mod is based on the mod originally created by @Splosions (Mod ID 622665004). This mod has been created with his permission and continued involvement but at a new Workshop ID (because Steam makes multiple people committing Workshop code difficult).

Verson History

Alpha v0.4 - Modified how ammo is handled. Each time you fire the grappling hook a new grappling hook will be added to your inventory. Hopefully fixing the rubber banding through the world bug. Updated the name to "Reusable Grappling Hook" instead of "Infinite Grappling Hook Plus".
Alpha v0.3 - Modified how ammo is handled in an attempt to stop players being rubber banded back to prior grappling hooks when dismounting from dinosaurs. Modified the texture and icon to help differentiate the Infinite Grappling Hook from the regular Grappling Hook.
Alpha v0.2 - Resolved a bug where it was possible to duplicate infinite grappling hook ammo.
Alpha v0.1 - Initial release to allow wider testing of the mod. Based on the mod created by @Splosions (Mod ID 622665004).

Been using this mod since 2017 and it still works.

This mod works.
The reusable grappling hook in Reusable Plus does not, plus it makes the game crash, or the user disconnect from the server.

The same mod does't seem to work in resueable plus, either. At least according to comments.

This mod breaks the game, because it works where the normal hook is restricted to not work.. like boss arena and puzzle caves.. This needs to be fixed!

Is this mod still active? Whenever I try to fire the hook, my game crashes. I can still see the hook in the engrams list and see it in the smithy (I haven't tried remaking it, it's been a looong time since I've played ark. Maybe I just need to make a newer one?) The command to give me a hook doesn't work either, but I suspect that's not part of the issue.
