Thank you to LightSpinner94 and Tohru for the continued hard work on this awesome WIKI!!



!!!! NOTE: Primal Fear is currently not compatible with any mod that overrides any vanilla creatures, such as classic flyers. (Primal Fear flyers can level up speed, so that mod is not necessary). This is due to the new spawn system, which piggy backs off of vanilla dinos to spawn Primal Fear dinos. This also includes adding any other dino mods to Primal Fear, whether it says it's compatible or not, which can cause unpredictable issues, such as overspawns and other unwanted behaviour. While this is a draw back, the bright side is this method makes Primal Fear work on any map, even any new official map, without my intervention. !!!!

List of Incompatible Mods:
-Classic Flyers and Naj's Speedy Flyers
-Annunaki Genesis
-The Volcano
-Extinction Core
-Ark Creatures Rebalanced (AG Reborn)
-Ark Omega
-Ark Supreme
-Kraken's Better Dino's
-Dino Colors Plus
-Elemental Ark
And others...

Primal Fear is a massive dino mod built around PvE ONLY. This mod adds varying tameable tiers of dinos, as well as special boss dinos. Currently, you can tame Toxics, Alpha's, Apex, Fabled, Buffoon, Celestial, Demonic, Elder, and Elemental. The bosses include Primal, Origin, and the Creator. Toxic, Alpha, Apex, and Fabled dinos are math based, and are 3x, 5x, 10x 16x vanilla stats. Almost every creature has an alpha variant. Apex variants are carnivorous fighters, and Fabled variants are passive work horses.

Demonics are cast away creatures hell bent on becoming useful, powerful, mounts. They have sold their soul to evil in order to gain ultimate power. Celestial's are the pure and true counter part, set there as a counter balance.

On top of dinos, this mod also adds varying items to enhance game play. These items include a tranq system, healing items, dino blood, multiple sets of armor, tranq pike, taming helpers, wake up stimulate, and more!

Primal Fear is still a WIP mod. Please give me feedback on anything and everything. More dinos will be added and tweaks will be made over time.

All information for this mod, including spawn codes, taming food, and server balancing, can be found on the google doc here[]

This mod does not touch creature or player levels. It uses server set levels, whether that is from a mod higher in the load order, or override server settings.

In order to see ALL Primal Fear dinos spawning in, you MUST have Primal Fear 1st in Mod Load Order. Map mods and Stacking mods included as well. It must be higher than those for ALL dinos to spawn in.

Does primal fear works with pyro mod or like enternal mod its been wile since i play ark so i forgot what mods well work on primal fear
Chief 19 hours ago 
True. And I didn't clarify, when I said you PF folks know about it, it's Wildcard issue, not PF

AB in general is a messy maps for spawners

spino , overworld and sarco spawns have all their own Wildcard quirks that they dont tell the modders
Chief Aug 15 @ 11:38am 

I'm not sure why you are having an issue past Spinos. I have no over spawns running all the other expansions besides AB and Extinction.

I have to completely disable all PF Spinos, then put back what I want with simple spawners. Which is all of them, but doing that way doesn't over spawn Spinos.

But these guys are aware of that issue with AB spinos

I think I only added maewing vanilla using simple spawners as well just cuz we want it. No other over spawns

Are you running any other incompatible dinos mods?

And have you checked your dino count? I usually only run 1 multiplier except for when on Crystal Isles

@Perila, this mod dont have wild baby dinos
Young Twon Aug 15 @ 10:44am 
@Chief Yea absolutely no change at all. Thanks anyway i at least load in a little faster. Adjusting dino spawn weight for specific types doesnt really work either no matter what i try it doesnt make a difference. This mod is plagued by over spawning it desperately needs a way to adjust PF specific spawns. I know once i get control of these bulb dogs and spinos ill just be plagued by other demonic variants, thats how spawn weight works. It was never a fix. When searching for answers online all i found was more people asking the same questions. Gonna have to drop the mod i guess cuz its just straight cancer on ab

Is there a chance to tame the wild baby dinos in this mod? they looked so abandoned
Flockerkill Aug 14 @ 9:32pm 
Hape PF loaded first in your mod list
Keep killing the wild Giga spawns, wildcard limited the wild gigas per map to like 1 to 2 per map
