Stackable modular Capitalism mod that provides a complete bounty system.

ModID: 898472628

Install requirements
That this mod works, this one must be loaded before it:

This mod provides your server (or even your whole cluster) a complete bounty system. So you will be able to register bounties on other players (or yourself) and to claim either the reward for

This means, that registered bounties will get synchronised between all boards on a map and even between all servers of a cluster!

In ../ShooterGame/Saved/ you'll find next to the normal SavedArks folder another folder, called SaveGames. This folder will pop up as soon as you place a BountyBoard in your game. In order to establish the cross ark synchronisation you need to either symlink (for Linux) this folder to your other arks, or to keep it synchronised with a cloud drive of any kind. It is also possible to create symlinks in windows, just follow this guid[], you could even use a Link Shell Extension[] for symlinks.

How to use it?
Walk up to the board and press either E or F to open the bounty interface. There you'll find all available players that are currently logged in to this server on the left side of this UI. As soon as you select one of this players their information will be prefilled in the middle part beneath the REGISTER NEW BOUNTY title and you'll be able to type in DEAD or ALIVE bounty values (the REASON is optional). If you press ACCEPT it will check if you typed in at least one of the bounty values > 0 and if you have enough money in your inventory to pay for it. If this was successfull it tries to find an already existing ACTIVE BOUNTY entry for that player and adds up the bounty amount (And does an auto sorting - descendant order), or creates a new entry.

Active bounties can be claimed by either killing the player and collecting of implants, which can be exchanged at the BountyBoard for the bounty reward, or by dragging the player next to the board and holding him/her there for (default) 60 seconds. To claim bounties you just need to hold E pressed while looking at the board and select CLAIM BOUNTY! -> for ALIVE bounty claims you have to wait until the timer says NOW and then select CLAIM BOUNTY! a second time. Alive bounty claims become invalid if the wanted player leaves the claim range or if you wait twice the time of the initial claim while the timer shows NOW... If a player registers an ALIVE claim for a wanted player, then this player gets registered, that means only this player is able to collect the claim after the timer went down (except the previous mentioned cancel events happen).

yes that would be really cool to add Bounty on dinos like Trophy to this mod

it would be really cool if you could put dinos on the board so people on PVE servers could use this.

Hi, quick idea. So maybe you could do this but with wild dinos. example: Player 1 wants a lv 120 dodo, puts it on bounty list for a price, player 2 finds a lv 120 dodo and brings it in same way like an alive player. I don't know how you could do it so the the dodo would stay there, or maybe there is some sort of save thing you could make. Just a quick idea.

only from one player

@HarleyQuinn, i did investigate this possible issue and was not able to reproduce your issue. Dead or Alive bounty were retrievable as it should be.

How many turn ins did you test? Only from one player, or multiple?

I am just letting you know what is going on...We love the mod but currently it isn't usable here..

@HarleyQuinn, ah... then wildcard did change the implant item again as it seems. Maybe it gets fixed with further updates or i'll have to investigate this issue - hoping that i'll be able to find an alternative to get the implant id
