Vacuum Sorter v1.22

*** All items and features in this mod are additional. The mod should work with every new version of Ark and stack with other mods. Doesn't require a clean save file. ***

This is a simple mod that adds a Vacuum Sorter into the game. You can learn the engram at level 35.


Vacuum Sorter is a structure which can be used to vacuum items from dinos and also sort items into containers.


How to use: Simply hit the Vacuum Sorter with your dino or enter the "Vacuum Bubble" (when enabled) to vacuum various resources from its inventory. It will start sorting the items after 4 seconds (if automatic sorting is enabled). You can also manually put stuff into the Vacuum Sorter and then press "Sort Items" to sort them.

Sorting: Sorting ONLY works for containers that have the word "Sort" as the last word in the name. For example you can name your Storage Box as "Stone - Sort" and it will work, but you can NOT name it as "Sort - Stone". Just have the word "sort" in the end and you'll be good to go. Also the destination container must contain at least one of the desired item for the sorter to recognize it.


Radial Menu settings:

Vacuum Bubble: This enables the "Vacuum Bubble" which will create a radius around the sorter. Creatures that enter this radius will be automatically vacuumed. Great for large dinos and servers with friendly fire disabled.

Collect Type: You can set the vacuum type in the radial menu. "Resource" setting will vacuum all the resources (stones, wood etc.) from your dino inventory. "Food" setting is mostly meant for vacuuming different food items like specific berries, spoiled meat etc. You can configure the "Food" type resources in the radial menu option "Vacuum "Food" types".

Automatic Sort: This is set On by default. When enabled the vacuum sorter will automatically sort items after being hit by a dino with 4 second delay.

Feeding Through: You can enable sorting into Feeding Throughs with this option.

Show Range: This option will show you the sorting range. A visible "net" will appear when toggled on.

Sorting Range: This option toggles between "Medium" and "Large". Medium sorting range is ~22 foundations and Large sorting range is ~40 foundations.

Vacuum "Food" Types: Only shows when "Collect Type" is set to "Food". This option opens another radial menu where you can toggle on/off all the "food" resources you want to vacuum from your dino.

No reason to throw out useless updates if the mod still works. Literally no point in that. lol

The MODDER hasn't posted anything since 9/2017. I think it's a safe bet to assume this mod is dead. :(

Would be nice if this Mod would sort other containers within the huge bubble. kind of like Automated Ark.... Its cool that this puts items into inventory, but it doesn't KEEP things organized.

Kind of like cleaning your room, then never ever cleaning it again, gets dirty after a while.

Any reason this mod doesn't sort into 'RP Visual Storage' containers?
