Advanced Thatch

18 New primal structures with a new HD look and thatch based.

When we first started playing ARK, we were like everybody else: alone, naked and cold. As Bear Grylls taught us in Man vs Wild, building a shelter is your first priority. Searching desperately into the engram list, the first structure we have access to is the thatch. Ok, find wood, thatch and fiber! Done! Now craft it and finally place it.
Days passed, weeks, months… We almost thought: “Hey, let’s play Rust instead”. But we love ARK so much ! Let’s build our own thatch structures like we would do it in a real (virtual) survival situation! We installed the SDK, designed our dream thatch structures, modeled it, textured it and here it is!

Is there an option to stop it from preventing respawn of resources and dinos like in s+?

lower values doesnt seem to count for ARK but still i have no respawn of resources after setting up a base with Adv Thatch.

Ok. I know how that can be. I tried modding but with how unreliable the dev kit is I stopped.

@Jamez Raynor, we don't know the devkit is still crashing, we are waiting for the support :/
