I play with this mod and my max dino level is still 150 max anyone can help?

okay, also tried killing my char on hardcore mode and started with a new char then powerleveld with my small dragon, but again leveling stopped at level 216.
Katelyn K. Aug 23 @ 3:20pm 
this mod just isn't working anymore. as stated below my character level won't go past level 216, but my max (tamed) dino level is 517.

the weird thing is although i can't regularly level beyond 216, i can of course gain a few more max levels by leveling my implant and after doing that it does show the "correct" xp amount defined by this mod, but it doesn't unlock the ability to level normally again (meaning it just shows the max xp for the level i'm at no x out of x).

problem is now that i'm missing tons of engram points since the big EP gains are locked behind level 285+

same as @"Quandale Dingle", lvl216 seems to be max for me. don't know about dino level cap, since highest dino level i've seen is 400

the mod is at the top of the list

Quote, "set the Difficulty to 16 and spawn Dinos up to 480"

On the Community Wiki, under the "Leveling" topic, it says:
"On official servers, Creatures have a hard-capped limit at level 450. Tameable creatures introduced in the Genesis DLCs, R-Creatures and X-Creatures, and Lost Island's Dinopithecus are the only exception, with 500 being their hard-cap."

Since this mod was released in 2016 and last updated in 2017, this was obviously made before Genesis came along. But I have to wonder: Since this mod caps Dinos to level 480, does this interfere with the 500 hard-cap to Lost Island's Dinopithecus as well as Genesis stuff like R-Creatures and X-Creatures?
