Holiday Delight!

Why farm mistletoe for weeks just to build a Christmas tree? Ho-ho-ho, that's no good! Holiday Delight offers all of the cosmetic holiday event items in a single crafting station, for free! Create as many decorations as you'd like, and go crazy this holiday season.

The "Crafting Wreath" also serves as a music player! Listen to the "Winter Wonderland" theme while you decorate! Volume can be adjusted via config settings, or you can adjust the in-game music slider.

  • All "Winter Wonderland" cosmetic items available for free (no need to farm Mistletoe).
  • All players within range will hear the "Winter Wonderland" ARK theme music, if enabled on the Crafting Wreath.
  • No engram points required. The "Crafting Wreath" and all decorations are available for free.
  • Decorations give zero crafting XP (no cheating) and have zero weight (carry as many as you'd like).
  • Items will not disappear at the end of the event! Keep your holiday decorations up as long as you'd like!
  • Audio player is fully customizeable! Audio range, volume, and pitch can be configured. You can even make the audio play for your tribe only. (Details below...)
  • Small file size. The goal is to make a light-weight mod packed with fun holiday items that won't disappear when the holiday event ends.
  • You can place as many decorations as you like, there are no 'too many custom paintable structures in this area' limitations.
  • All placeable items have had their collision removed, so that you can place them where ever you want!
  • This mod is completely clean and stackable! You can install it in any order.

Patch Notes - Version 2.2!
  • New Item: Christmas Lamppost! Light your base with briliant white light from a festive victorian-themed wrot iron lamp post.
  • New Item: Holly! Place clusters of Holly on walls, ceilings, floors -- anywhere you want. They can be scaled to any size!
  • Updated Item: The Snowman has been updated with all the latest hat sockets! Ever wanted to put a Tek helmet on a snowman? Now you can! Should support every hat that's currently in the game.
  • Updated Item: The Holiday Delight Crafting Wreath (and music-box) has been updated so that the music can be adjusted via the music slider in the in-game UI. And you can always disable the music from the wreath's inventory, if you get sick of it. =)
  • Bug Fix: The Christmas Tree no longer plays the "thatch placement" sound when it's rendered.
  • Bug Fix: The Holiday Delight Crafting Wreath should no longer interfere with Awesome Spyglass. If you do have any problems, please let me know. =)
  • Bug Fix: The Stocking has been updated to re-allow custom sign text; players can write their names on their stockings again. Can't have Raptor Clause getting confused...


Future Plans:
  • Add additional texture/color options.
  • Animate the Christmas lights to change color/blink.
  • Add new holiday items, such as throwable snowballs, and much more! =)

(Default Values)
The default values should work great, but you can tweak them if you want. The "MusicRadius" is measured in number of foundations, to make it easy. By default, if a player is 8 foundations away from an active Crafting Wreath, the music will fade out and stop playing.

@RedDwarf , That's what I was sure of never hurts to ask. Thank you!

@Grumpy: Yeah, unfortunately modded items won’t transfer unless the same mod is on both servers =(
Grumpy Average Gamer Dec 21, 2021 @ 9:46pm 
I'm sure I know the answer to this but going to ask anyway. Any chance if I put this on 1 of my servers the items are transferable, and I don't have to have the mod on my whole cluster?

MEGA , Thx for that!

Thank you for your speedy reply RedDwarf. I'm looking for a Holiday mod for our Community this year and I wanted to see if you had anything planned since the mod was last updated in 2018 (this year Hallows Eve had a few updates). BTW I love the penguins with the Santa hats are those in the mod or just the hats. Thank you for your time. :steamhappy:

@Cowdog: Hey there. I don't have much planned for this year. I have a snowball weapon that I've been wanting to release for a while, but that's about it. Is there anything you'd like to see?
Cowdog Nov 14, 2021 @ 3:26pm 
Hi RedDwarf,
Will there be an update to your holiday mod, if so do you have a time frame. Thank you! :)

@The ravager: Sure, I don't see why not. =) No idea if/when I'll be free to work on that, though, so don't get your hopes up yet.

Hey, can you add creatures with santa hat natural spawning (like bulbdogs on Holiday event 2017)
Revenant Dec 18, 2020 @ 5:42pm 
Well I will say this is very cool! Glad you are doing this for all the events!
