Randomly Colored Dinos

All creatures spawn with random colors. Male can be more colorful than female.
You will NOT lose any dino, if you remove this mod.
Colored dinos do not lose their colors, if you remove this mod.
This mod does not create modified dinos like other mods do.
It changes vanilla and modded dinos directly.
You can mate colored dinos. Babies can have the colors of the parents.
This mod should also work with modded dinos, as long as those mods are using spawners.
This mod is compatible to future releases of ARK.
If ARK is updated with new Dinos, they als are randomly colored by using this mod.

This mod is clean and stackable
Plug and Play!

ini support for colorsets: please read the discussion

All new spawned dinos have random colors.
To force the spawning of colored dinos,
use the console command "cheat DestroyWildDinos"
to kill all not tamed dinos.
(This command deletes over 30,000 dinos, so be patient. Ark will not respond during the kill process.)

Is there a way to separate wyvern and Crystal Wyvern?

Also, I'd love to see this for a percentage of creatures, like someone suggested, but I expect that would be difficult to do.

This does work fine with KBD.

any chance you can list the map names for the configs or is it just the standard map names

i run a server for each of the xpack maps and also the official maps that were mods

and does this mod have to be loaded first in mod list

Hello, hi! I installed this on my server but it doesn't seem to be working. I checked the File Manager/ShooterGame/Content/Mods folder and it doesn't even have a folder there stating that it's installed.

So I removed it from config, restarted/stopped my server to cycle it, added it back into config and when I went through the updater, I didn't even get a "[+] Starting Download of mod with ID <mod ID number>" It's like it's not picking up that the mod ID numbers are even in the string. I made sure the numbers were correct and everything. I'm at a loss.

@Grebog Is there a way to make it so it's only a percentage chance a dino spawns with other unnatural colors like in this mod? I would like it to be similar to during events where a few dinos spawns with other colors, but most spawn with the normal color palette.

Can this mod be used to make dinos have bright neon colours like the Easter event? I'd like to run different events in my game, but I *so* like the bright colours.

Yes, what Shinigat says goes in my direction, too. Compatible.

I saw that but it only lets you choose one single color for either male or female, for example i'm wanting only 3 or 4 different colors but no more than that.
