Well, the mod is not updating on the server when i try to download it via Ark Server Manager: Finished processing mod 817096835. ERROR: The following mods failed the update, check above for more detail

Well I guess Brutal Evolved will be a backup in case this doesn't work. According to comments here, people says this still works...

I havent tried it in a long time so I can't tell ya if it will work flawless.

Thanks! I am assuming i can just subscribe to Extinction Core and be good especially if I try it on a map it was optimized for such as the Island correct? Shouldn't have to do any game.ini tweaks except for the rock drake fix?

@Crash2323 They will attack it if they spawn nearby but they will not actively come attack your base. There is a mod that does send dinosaurs after your base like a tower defense type game after XX amount of time passes..might look into that mod as well. It is called TCs Brutal ARK I believe.

Unfortunately, PVE gets boring to me once I get into industrial, no need for turrets or defenses because dino's or NPC tribes (if they existed) would never attack. I already have a server using Ark Server Manager and would love to make PVE more interesting. This mod seems to be the ticket, especially with the NPC tribes. I plan to play this on Crystal Isles and Ragnarok.

So based on the comments, and the sample game.ini from domleg, I would need to add all the creatures in the Game.ini like below to make them spawn or is that just to change their multiplier? [/url

Of course I see you have to add the line for the rock drake fix.

Another question: Do NPC tribes attack your bases?

Psycho Was 34 now 35 LVL Steam. What....

All Psycho has to do is release the unbaked version of his mods, and set the non-artwork portions to be Share Alike instead of NoDerivative.

Many KSP mods use a hybrid license with Attribution NonCommercial NoDerivatives for art and Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike for code.

Some give exemptions for specific minor modifications to artwork (things explicitly required for version compatibility.)

Что делать?Я не могу запустить мир с extintion core. При загрузке мира всё просто зависает

It's two years now, that I've been waiting and praying for someone to give this fantastic mod some love. It's so sad, especially with all the wonderful memories I have from playing it with my friends. ._. I'd actually pay for this rr.
