A Stacking Mod that doesn't overstack like mad!

Full Description!

SM Stacks is stacking all the resources on Vanilla and Scorched Earth maps.
This Mod will work on any maps, and will auto stack all resources gathered, or recieved from demolishing structiures and crafted items.

Some info around what is changed:

Major overhaul in the mod.
After some extensive testing, we har decided to remove all none harvested resource... This means we will not have any ammo except stone for the slingshot...
You can use the dye again
Some crafted resources, like Polymer and so on.might be in still.

No structure items has been added.
Apex items like Argent Claws, Megaladons Teeths, Sauropods Spines and so on are in...

No Boss tributes, or artifacts has been added.
Dyes has been removed.


Questions and Answers:

Why so low stacks?
One of the things we have noticed on our servers, is that using high stacking mods causes the servers to start lagging after a while. This is not something that is any modding authors fault, but more the players, as we all start hoarding more and more resources, just because it stacks so well :D
Keeping a lower number in the stacks forces us to either make more storage for stacks, or simply cut down on how much we actually stacks... Usually established players tend to have their personal setup in their bases, where they have their storage, and don't want to add extra storage boxes, vaults and what not, just to keep more stacks around.

What is the weight changes?
All weight on resources in the mod are halved!

What is the size changes?
Stacks has been altered to hold 5x times of each of the resource in the mod.

Why is so much missing?
We have focused to grabbing hold of the pure resources that one can get, all except metal ingots, that technically you can't find, but can be looted...

Can you raise the stack size and lower the weight more?
Most likely no. As explained above, we want to keep the stacks and weight to a point where it's not overstacking and therefor risk causing lag after a while...

Is this mod clean and stackable?
In short, yes.

It will NOT stack with ANY other stacking mods ( since they all stack the same things ), but the mod do like to stay as high up as possible in the priority list. It's not a problem to have it lower down, but we noticed easier lag when added to far down.

What about Overhaul mods?
This mod works perfectly fine with overhaul mods like Annunaki Genesis, ACA, Ark Reborn and the likes. They have some changes in their stacking, but as they require to be first in the priority list, the stacking they use will take priority over this mod, and thus not collide.

Warnings:
If removed, you will lose all the resources gathered/accumuleted since the mod was installed. This is since all the resources original stack size and weight has been changed. You have been warned!
All your storage boxes will be empty, all feeding trough empty, all dinos inventories, empty of resources.. REmember to go and grab food for your beloved dinos ASAP!

Can I contribute in any way?

Another pass at Acathina paste. If this doesn't work with S+ mod, I will need to remove it for the time being, so I can figure out why!!!
Element fixed. No more 100 duping!!

There is a game breaking duping bug currently in this stacking mod.

NEW SERVERS STAY AWAY FROM THIS MOD UNTIL IT IS FIXED!!!!

I am trying to work directly with the mod creator to fix this.

My cluster is fucked because of it once people figure it out....

I was wondering if you would be willing to make separate standalone stackable mod for currently unstackable items only (based off of this mod)......example: Giant Bee Honey, Raw Prime Meat, Mutton(all forms)
My server is not a fan of op stuff so having a sensible stacking mod would be great, however we are not looking to up the stacking levels of anything that already stacks, or to change weights.

Considering switching to your stacking mod, due to your kibble machine, I have one question though, why reduce the weight?

Could an ini setting be made to allow controlling the weight reduction? cause I would set it to 0% reduction :)

5 Raw Prime Meat in the fridge lasts 20 hours, you have to renew it every single day or it's gonna be empty for when you need it

I lost 95% of my Raw Prime Meat stored in the fridge, thanks. Great mod.

@elle
I have changed the picture on the upcoming update! The items in the mod is all none crafted resources ( except the cooked items/forged items, as they can't be crafted, but rather made; like Metal Ingot, all meat and gasoline )
Atm the list is 165 items ( alot have been removed, such as bullets and more ) I will see if I can make a list for you a bit later on!
@Fynnmous There is "kinda" an easy way to make that work, but sadly my knowledge on how to make this changable through .ini file is none :( This is something I need to learn :)
But I have changed the sizes to what they are supposed to be, this was done while testing, and I forgot to change it back.
@e4foxtrot Thank you for catching this. It's now fixed in the new update!

@Starmatske and @Fynnmous That has been fixed in the last update, but you have to relrean the engram at level 13

Sorry people for the late replies .. I've been to busy with real life situation.

Hey, if it's not too much trouble, could I get a list of what is changed by this mod? I'm a bit confused since you've said it doesn't affect crafted items, but I see some in the photo of the mod. A comprehensive list would be handy!
Fynnmous Aug 1 @ 11:53am 
@Sgt.Morrigahn - is there any *easy* way to include .ini parameters to be able to adjust attributes of this mod? For instance, some of the stack sizes for me (prime meat and cooked prime meat for instance) are really too large and I'd like to reduce them. They used to only stack 5 & 25, but now it's much higher for some reason. These are just an example. Any ability to customize via the user.ini would be great though. Thanks for the mod, it's much better than the other insane stackables out there and your support has been spot on!
