Welcome to DinoOverhaul X, the very first complete Dino Overhaul Mod (est. June 21st 2015) designed to flip the script on survival within ARK! Players are the hunted, and must survive their harsh surroundings where they will be met with an eXtreme environment filled with absolute killers!

DinoOverhaul X will quickly send you packing after a few rage quits and the feeling of being abused. This feeling of defeat will most likely occur once the struggle of never leaving early game happens. Vanilla and modded Ark dinos have long rotted that part of your brain and all critical thinking, planning, and mitigation skills have long been abandoned.

Maybe you are a veteran of conquering most hardcore dino type mods, how much worse can DOX be?

LORE:


Inspired by: Diablo 2/3

BALANCE SYSTEM:


All dinos have been rebalanced to better represent realistic movement, ability, and strength speculated in real-world situations. Dilos no longer run at the pace of a toddler's waddle... Megalodons no longer equal 90% of what is seen in the oceans, Argentavis are far less deadly in comparison to a Rex and Pteranodons cannot pick up dinos x2 their own size... As just some examples!

As you start progressing and killing higher tiered dinos, the difficulty will remain! Each battle will ensure you are kept on your toes and being properly geared is a must.

STAT SYSTEM:


Stats have been completely redone; you can no longer gain +20% yields per stat point in any one ability. Obtaining the highest possible level dino and breeding up is vital for early progression. Each class type of dinos have stat specific strengths that scale better than others, for example a Rex will gain more in melee per point than a Bronto, but don’t be fooled Brontos are very large and hit very hard unlike vanilla Ark.

PROGRESSION:


Several dino tiers exist ranging from “normal*, Apex, Pygmy, Unique/Prime, Ancient, and Primal” which play various rolls and purposes depending on the situation. For example, a Fire Wyvern will fare poorly against an Ice Wyvern. DOX offers many ways of progression, but skill is absolutely required. This prevents cheesing your way to the top or gaming the system in ways that just completely ruin mid-game play. One example of this is Wyverns, while you may be able to locate their eggs in the wild, stealing it cannot take place until you are level 127 additionally, riding it will require Prime Kibble which can only be gained from Prime WILD kills.

Boss progression opens up to a heavily expanded RNG loot system so no 1 dino will drop the exact same items twice! Killing Apex dinos drops various needed progression items such as droppable only saddles which yield much higher armor rating to include rare DOX Titanium and Tungsten metals needed to create DOX items. Prime WILDs such as the Compy being one of only 2 tamable Prime WILDs drops a variety of loot which will further help push your campaign forward!

DYNAMIC AI-UNIQUE BUFFS-TIERED LEVELS-& MUCH MORE:


Simply put, DOX dinos have enhanced AI to challenge even the most veteran of players. Boss based dinos gain random power buffs to further enhance engagement. Tier up your dinos giving extra damage and reduction from foes, but your foes can also tier up as well!

ENHANCED ARMORS:


These types of armors only drop from Prime WILD creature and giving various perks per piece to include a set bonus when a complete set is worn. Armors such as these are an absolute necessity to progress as they give active abilities to your dinos.

CORRUPTED ENHANCED ARMORS/SYSTEM:


All DOX enhanced Armors can be corrupted, with a corruption stone only found on Mega Dinos. Corrupted Armors are gained through placing 1 of the 5 DOX Enhanced Chest Armors within the inventory of a Prime Compy along with one corruption stone. What comes out is a random corrupted piece with enhanced abilities for the wearer and dino. Corruption stones also play into other factors greatly increasing end game progression, checkout DOX book of smarts in game.

PYGMY DINOS/ GAMBLING SYSTEM:


These dinos are another must have when building up towards boss fights as they act as passive perks for the player and dinos yielding additional damage reduction from foes or damage increase for tames. They can also be evolved into Primes! Pygmies are found in the wild and must be passively tamed, but be warned they are protected! with a Prime Jerboa you can gamble for end game loots.

WORLD EVENTS:


There are several world events which take place during your adventures and accessible at the very start of a new world. Events such as "Bounties" or "Corruption" and even massive TITANs which freely roam Ark! Be careful though, these challenges are brutal & rewarding!

BOSSES:


Prime WILDs are your first real tier of bosses beyond Apex Alpha dinos. Prime WILDs are not tamable and cannot be torpid out or trapped. Next up is your Mega dinos which unlock tek items and drop Prime summoner artifacts to include the much sought-after corruption stone! Mega dinos have more predictable loot thus farming them could be more beneficial for specific items consistently. Be warned Mega Dinos and up roam Ark freely unhindered by render distance and act as living NPCs. TITAN dinos are your end game creatures which alone will be a true challenge for any player and only make an appearance for 45min intervals at a time.
