Redwood Feeding Trough

The Redwood Feeding Trough has a 300 slot inventory and preservers to prevent food from spoiling. Useful for keeping your dino's fed when you're unable to login for extended periods of time. Through custom .ini settings you can change the trough health, inventory slot number, inventory spoil timer, and feeding range.

NOTE! If you override the feeding range it will prevent resources in its radius from respawning.

This is a clean mod with no changes to core game files.
This is an additional structure with its own engram.

Structure Details:

- Engram level requirement: Level 18
- Engram cost: 12
- Structure durability: 3000
- Storage capacity: 300
- Preserving elements prevent food from spoiling. (does not require fuel)
- Can be locked and PIN locked.
- Can be picked up.
- Can be renamed.
- Craftable from player inventory.
- Custom .ini settings for trough health, inventory slots, inventory spoil timer, and feeding range.

Crafting requirements:

400 Wood
350 Thatch
350 Fiber
50 Metal Ingots
250 Sparkpowder

gameusersettings.ini custom settings: (add the following settings and change the values to the amount you want)

Set the FeedingRange value to the radius you want (OVERRIDING THIS WILL PREVENT RESOURCES RESPAWNING IN ITS RADIUS!), set it to 0 to leave it at the default ARK feeding trough range.
The default feeding range is around 2000. 3000 is around 150% feeding range, 4000 is around 200% range, etc.
Setting it below 2000 will not reduce the range below default, it's currently limited to being upscaled only. (working on a solution for this).


Spawn command:

giveitem "Blueprint'/Game/Mods/FreeRangeTroughs/FRTroughs/PrimalItemStructure_FeedingTrough_FRTrough.PrimalItemStructure_FeedingTrough_FRTrough'" 1 0 0

The spoil timer is too long for me.
Is there a way to change with dedicated sever?
RFTSpoilMultiplier setting only works for local play.

Glad to hear, have had this mod for years now, so praying to the ARK gods it stays functional :)

Yes I spoke too soon, completely removed the mod and reinstalled and is working again.

Works fine on latest update here.
So must be something on your end, try to unsub/sub on both server/client.

I noticed that this mod doesn't run on the latest version of ARK. Will there be an update or is this mod no longer worked on?

imsy, we've been having the same problems, with all the troughs, redwood included. I chainsaw a Bronto and add 2K meat and the next time I log on it's empty. We're breeding Raptors and Velonasaurs but not in the amounts that should eat 2000 meat in 8 hours.

We've got our base about as high up as it's possible to get on Extinction, the highest building in the city but I don't hear anyone else on the map having the same problem.

Yeah that's weird, been using this mod for ages and never had an issue like that.

Not unless something eats it... So I guess depends what is going on in area.
