Q: How can i find Wild Dinos across the Map?
A: I dont know, maybe try another Mod that can do this. Our Mod was never and will never be a Mod to search Wilds across the Map.

Q: The Color of my Gloves is Disapearing
A: This is not a Bug, its a Feature. If you remove the Tracker Skin from your Gloves they still have their Color, This way you can give the Gloves another Color if the Tracker is Applied.

Q: Why is it now a Skin? I want to use my X/Y Skin.
A: We tried a few different things and decidet that a Skin would give the best Immersion. Even Wildcard uses it this Way with the Zip Line and Hang Glider.

Q: Does it affect my Dinos or other mods?
A: No, the Mod is clean and Stackable and wont overwrite vanilla Files or interact with any other Mod.

Q: Why does the Tracker not show my own Coordinates
A: We wanted to create an Immersive search function without breaking the use of ingame items like the GPS

Q: My Tracker wont open, im confused wich Hotkey is the right one
A: Go into a Singleplayer Game with only Dino Tracker enabled and type "cheat ScriptCommand DinoTracker open" in the Console. Rebind the Keys how you like them and join your Multiplayer Game again.

I was able to get this mod working just fine. Trick was that I had to reboot the server 3 times for it to update but it finally let me in after that and the mod works great. No ini changes or anything tricky. I don't know why it took that many times to install./update but at least it works!

Game is crashing after installing this mod today. So the last patch didn't fix that?

So I have all of the tracking disabled except tribe dinos and yet it still sometimes shows the full menu with player tracking. Is there anything you can do to fix that?

its not the mods fault steam and ark are having trouble communicating. To make it work you must do a clean re install of this, and might as well do all your mods in case its not just this one. You must do the clean install on both server and client(your pc). if you dont know how to do this please follow a detailed guide online somewhere. TO REITTERATE THIS IS NOT THE MOD THAT IS CAUSING THE PROBLEM IT WORKS FINE ITS THE SERVER AND CLIENT FAILING TO COMMUNICATE WITH STEAM TO PROPERLY UPDATE. if neither update youre good. if both update youre good. but if only one properly updates and the other does not then you have a MISMATCH. thank you and goodluck.
