Minor Stacks (Discontinued)

This mod is no longer worked on because there are now official settings, which will make custom stack sizes possible.
If you search for a smooth way the remove this mod. Have a look at: MS Deactivated

Custom Stack Size of some minor Items:

Berries: 500
Mushrooms: 500
Veggies: 250
Raw Meat: 200
Raw Fish Meat: 200
Cooked Meat: 60
Cooked Fish Meat: 60
Cooked Prime Meat: 60
Cooked Prime Fish Meat: 60
Cooked Lamb Chop: 60
Org. Polymer: 50
Corrupted Nodule: 50
Wyvern Milk: 10
Nameless Venom: 10
Prime Meat: 5
Prime Fish Meat: 5
Raw Mutton: 5
Honey: 5

Change Stack Size:
Since ARK Version 291.100, it is now possible to change the stack size using ini options.
Have a look here: click me

Weight adjustements:

Berries: 0.05 / Berry (Default was 0.1)
Veggies: 0.05 / Veggie (Default was 0.1)
Mushrooms: 0.05 / Mushroom (Default was 0.1)

Why only those Items?

Because of the way ARK-Mods are working.
If the Mod gets removed all those (modded) Items will be lost (unrecoverable).
Thats why I decided to make a Mod, which only modifies minor Items, which are not that hard to get and are spoiling anyway after some time. Losing 1000 metal ignots would be much more frustrating than losing perishable items.


The new Stack Sizes and Weights only affect newly gathered Items. All old / already existing Items will still have their normal Stack Size and Weight. Also. for the Cooked Meats you have to rebuild your Campfire and/or Grill. I dont know if you also have to rebuild other things which use those Cooked Meats like Preserving Bin or Cooker. You have to try. I didnt modified those Structures at all, but for some reason they dont use the new Stack-Sizes until rebuild.

Mod Order

If you use other Mods, which are remapping those Items, then you maybe need to put this Mod above those.

Of cause you are free this mod further. But there won't be any updates or bug fixes anymore. Regarding the config setting. Are you trying to override this mods' stack size or the stack size of the vanilla items? If you do it for this mod, it should work. If you want to change vanilla items, then the config is different.

the config override doesnt work for some reason on my server i put in the Game ini and nothing is making it work for me oh well, thanks for sharing that and all but your mod does the work and is in no way obsolete thanks for the hard work and great stack mod

It was, but I got it working now thanks, I just had to take "MinorStacks" out of each command line for it to work, I would use your stacking mod since it's the best and most balanced but server is running Immersive taming and I really cba rerouting the item paths xD

Make sure it is written under this section

Hi I've posted the ini. changes you provided into game.ini but the stacks aren't increasing, have any ideas why?

Best of stacking mods! Others are just too OP and make game "so easy" by reducing everything too much. Thank you for your work!

Had a crash twice now from completing a mission on Genesis, wondering if I'm alone here. Hopefully this link works.

@Wyrider, there's a post in immersive taming discussion about use of stacking mods, it's an easy fix - just edit the crafting requirement for the bait, to point to the minor stacks version of the meat. Works perfectly :)

Trying to tame Roll Rate, dropping honey on ground after it buried itself, it is not eating the "box" honey. Any ideas?

@Aannerud: I've just tested in inGame and it is working. Don't know why it isn't for you. It takes some time. You have to wait 1-2min until you see a result....
