Description
This mod is clean, it adds 4 new items to the game to make taming faster.
All 4 items are customizable:
Change config options
Change Engrams and Crafting costs


Appetizer
(Blue icon) Engram at level 5 costs 3 points
Remote use in unconscious dino inventory, applies a 60 seconds buff that makes food drain 10 times faster than normal.
Can be crafted in vanilla mortar and pestle, chemistry bench or player inventory
Craft costs:
  • 40 Azulberry
  • 40 Stimberry
  • 1 Charcoal

Appetizer X
(Red icon) Engram at level 30 costs 3 points
Remote use in unconscious dino inventory, instantly removes 80 food, does not work on tamed dinos.
Can be crafted in vanilla mortar and pestle, chemistry bench or player inventory
Craft costs:
  • 40 Tintoberry
  • 40 Stimberry
  • 4 Charcoal
  • 1 Rare Mushroom

Appetizer Grenade
Engram at level 30 costs 3 points
Throw at wild dino, it will not affect humans or tamed dinos and it will not scare/aggro wild dinos, now works underwater too(it`s hard to aim but you can stand near the dino and hold mouse click for it to explode in your hand).
  • Passive tamable dinos will receive a buff for 2 minutes allowing you to feed them every 10 seconds, there will be a visual effect on them letting you know the buff is active. You can also throw multiple grenades at once to make the buff last longer(buff time will be extended not reset).
  • Wild dinos both conscious and unconscious dinos will have 240 food instantly removed.
Can be crafted in vanilla smithy or player inventory.
Craft costs:
  • 3 x Appetizer X
  • 1 x Metal Ingot
  • 1 x Crystal
  • 15 Sparkpowder

Appetizer Tranq Dart
Engram at level 65 costs 3 points
Used with vanilla longneck rifle, works underwater, does not work on players.
It will inflict torpor the same way vanilla darts do and the multiplier can be changed in the config, here is a comparison:
  • Tranq Dart has base damage of 26 does 6x instant torpor(156) and an additional 2.5x over 5 seconds(65) for a total of 221 torpor
  • Appetizer Tranq Dart has base damage of 26 does 9x instant torpor(234) and an additional 3.75x over 5 seconds(97.5) for a total of 331.5 torpor
  • Shocking Tranq Dart has base damage of 26 does 12x instant torpor(312) and an additional 5x over 5 seconds(130) for a total of 442 torpor
Weapon % damage applies to base damage on all darts, the example above is for 100% primitive longneck.
  • Passive tamable dinos will receive a buff for 1 minute allowing you to feed them every 10 seconds, there will be a visual effect on them letting you know the buff is active. You can also shoot multiple times to make the buff last longer(buff time will be extended not reset), it will not damage or scare/aggro them.
  • Wild dinos both conscious and unconscious dinos will have 80 food instantly removed, if you shoot unconscious dinos it will not damage them or lower taming effectiveness
Can be crafted in vanilla smithy or player inventory.
Craft costs:
  • 5 x Narcotic
  • 2 x Metal Ingot
  • 1 x Simple rifle bullet
  • 1 x Appetizer X

I've tried spawning in blueprints, but for some reason I haven't been able to. Is that a me issue? If we could have blueprints, we might be able to put those in other crafting stations.

That's ok - will post this into SS as well :) just thought people/you should know

@Husky i have no control on other people's mods, some play nice with others some don't.

Doesn't work in "SS" chem bench/mortar n pestle only VANILLA chem bench and mortar - it does work with Automated ARK chem/mortar

@Riptide yep, standard darts work, the appetizer darts work too, they just do something else aka help you tame faster instead of knocking them out. I think this is the 1st ever dino that is a passive tame and you also need to knock it out to get the crystals needed for tame.

@ZFG I'll give that a try with the Tropeo. Standard tranq darts work on the crystal wyverns. While they are passive tames, they need to be knocked out to get the Primal Crystals needed to raise the babies. Thank you for your response and thank you for the mod. It's pretty awesome.

@Riptide Both the dart and grenade work on the tropeognathus the only issue is a visual bug, it says "wait for it to be hungry" but you can feed it already because the client does not update fast enough.
This visual bug was introduced a while back when they stopped updating dino stats instantly unless you were riding it for *cough* performace reasons (try not riding a dino and adding a lot of points into HP for example, you will not see it updating every point but rather every X seconds).
This issue is present on all passive tames and sadly it was something i could not fix on my end at the time, not sure if they added new functionality to the devkit, might be worth checking out when i get some time.

@Riptide grenade is just a different delivery method that can affect multiple targets at once vs the dart which is single target, the dart works on both passive tamed creatures and KO ones.
When you shoot a passive tamed wild dino it will not apply any damage and/or torpor in order to not reset your tame progress, instead it will give it the food drain buff same as the grenade.
After testing it today i noticed the same applies to the aggressive wyverns because of course it does (they are still tagged as passive tamed but aggressive because wildcard:))
