I have been made aware that this mod may possibly not work on Valguero, although another report to me says it does. As such use at you're own risk for this map.
Unfortunately I will not be updating this mod any further due to no more interest in this game on my part.
Thanks to everyone who has used this mod and continue to do so on the older maps.

A sedative designed to aid in the taming process

Mod ID: 711047840

Adds 500 to Torpor over 15 seconds.
Decreases Food by approx 450 over 3 seconds (this only has this much of an effect on an unconsious dinos hunger levels. Conscious dinos are able to resist the hunger inducing effects and cannot be used to help with passive taming).
Affects creatures with different metabolic rates to different degrees.

15 Narcotics
10 Stimulants
10 Spoiled Meat
50 Fiber
2 Rare Flowers
2 Rare Mushrooms

Requires level 30 to learn the engram which costs 12 points and is made directly in your backpack now (Mortar & Pestle or Chemistry Bench are no longer required).

Needless to say this item is not really recommended for human consumption, but hey, if you fancy it, knock yourself out.

- Due to either the Ark Dev Kit limitations or more likely my understanding of how it works, I am currently unable to have the same level of control over how much 'Food' is lost between conscious and unconscious dinos. If I set it to drop 'Food' by 450 on an awake dino it will completely wipe out the Food bar entirely on an unconscious one. So I have to set it to -2.25 for awake dinos instead which equates to just around 450 on an unconscious Dino. If I ever find a way to resolve this I will have it so it has the same effect on both conscious and unconscious.

@raptorguy576 Thanks for the praise. A lower power version is certainly a worthy suggestion. However I am currently done with Ark. Played it pretty much non stop back in the day and as such am still burned out on it. But if I made a return then I would certainly consider updating the mod and if I did I would definitely include your idea. In other words never say never but I wouldn't hold your breath :)

Thanks for this mod, it was super helpful to tame everything from a giga to an ovis. I wish you could update this mod tho to maybe include a lower power version of this for lower levels.

Just a note for @Jaz - I tried this mod on Valguero as well and i didn't have any issues using the taming sedative on any of the dinos that were available on the map itself, including the abberant ones.

Just to confirm for those reading the comments below mine: this mod works on Valguero and i've been using it on my server for a while now without issue. No update to mod required.

Oops, forgot to mention that I have actually reinstalled the mod literally several times total by now. Done various updates, restarts, etc. to the server. But again, since two other mods aren't being added to Valguero I am very inclined to believe that it's a host issue, not an issue with your mod.
Canis Lupus Sep 19, 2019 @ 4:15pm 
@Jaz Yeah, it's not just me, but definitely everyone it seems. As for the issue, it's essentially as if the mod doesn't exist. Right now we have 10 base mods all maps on my cluster have, from there Taming Sedative is one of said base mods. But it loads in mod count as having one less on all maps except Rag right now, and that one less being counted apparently is Taming Sedative. But Valguero does have two other mods, so I've talked with the owner and I'm personally under the assumption it may be a host issue or something.

@Canis Lupis In the past, on occasion, I've had mods that would not download properly, so if it's not working for everyone one on the server it might be worth removing and reinstalling on the server or if it only you then try that on your pc. I'm curious though, is it that the recipe is not appearing at all or just the the item itself doesnt work?
