Dino Pick Up Mod - v1.31

*** 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 *Dino Pick Up* item into the game. You can learn the engram at level 10.

*Dino Pick Up* is an item which lets you pick up pretty much any dino. With this you can easily pick up your favorite dino on your shoulder and go exploring by foot for a change or ride with another creature while still carrying the other dino on your shoulder. Why limit yourself with useless Jerboas and Monkeys when you might as well take a Rex or a Raptor as your "parrot".

How to use: Simply craft the *Dino Pick Up* and remote use it in your creature's inventory. Then select "Pick Up" from the dino's radial menu. Dinos with built structures on their platforms can't be picked up.

To throw the dino off from your shoulder you must double tap the "F" key or the "Reload" key (default "R") if you are riding another dino.

Config Settings:


Known Issues: Giganotosaurus and Rock elemental constantly move and "shake" the camera when on shoulder. Also picking up dinos with platform saddles is not advisable as the structures on them usually block your character and prevent you from doing anything (or can cause other collision bugs).

Found an issue with Liquified dinos on Crystal Isle map ...
If you provide a dino with a hat, pick it up and throw it, it crashes the server.. this is included the Jerboas ( who normally you CAN pick up without the mod too )

You should add a timer for pvp, for example if a dino gets hit by a player it cannoy be picked up for 5 minutes.

Before you post, please read the comments, and searching function makes it faster. Picking up rock drakes has always been the issues since they were released. The code has been posted here numerous times how to disable it. That is the only option for us atm. ;)

Picking up Rock Drakes gives server crashes every time - please fix it!

Picked up my wyvern (while half submerged in water) when I go to throw my wyvern off my shoulder it wasn't there. My shoulder was empty like a dino wasn't there in the first place. I searched (and whistled) up and down the river, but he was nowhere to be found. I logged off of Ark and exited Steam, but when I came back on he was still nowhere to be found. There's nothing in the Tribe Log about his death so my theory is it's either a glitch or he blinked out of existence.
