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

Is this mod no longer being maintained?

Hello, can you please make a update, to delete the "green ring of death"? I turn off the green range indicator, walk away briefly, come back and it's on again (or server restart) Can you solve it for, that switch to permanently off? please?

That range ring is annoying as hell!

Unless a mod chance. Every time you leave the render distance and come back, the green ring will be back, too.

is there a code we can place in the .ini file like ShowRange=false or something to get rid of this green ring..?? like we can with the range settings..??

bricktop ... place the trough down in the same spot ... press e and shut off the show range and the green ring disappears. then pick it up..

Any chance this mod will be getting an update? That range indicator is killer.

Pick them up before doing it I guess.
I disabled and removed the mod from the server and the green ring of death is still there!!

Is there no way to remove the green circle after you remove the mod??

Need to wait for a mod update.
Changed for all modded troughs in a recent ARK update.
