A smart tool for finding your lost Dino

Just craft a Dino Tracker
Required level 25

  • 1 Metal Ingot
  • 1 Hide

Apply the Dino Tracker Skin onto your Gloves.

You will see your Char now has a Tracker Wristband on his left Arm.

will open an UI where you can choose what are you looking for and select the Dino you are searching for
will point again to the last Dino you searched for.

An Arrow will show you the direction where the Dino is, the Dino will also be highlighted with a beacon.

  • It will find your Tribe Dinos ALL across the Map no matter on wich map you are
  • It can show you all Wild Dinos in Render Range
  • It can Point you to Tribe/Alliance Members (Tribemembers even when they are logged out)
  • Rebind your Hotkey

If you are using a previous Version of the Dino Tracker, be aware that the Engram Names have Changed.

Ini options for:

[DinoTracker] DisableWildTracking=True DisableWildFindButton=True DisableTribememberTracking=True DisableDeathTracking=True DisableAllyTracking=True DisableWildCoordinates=True


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.

Special Thanks to Neothom for borrowing me some of his Code

Oops I did find where to rebind the keys and it seems fine if I choose a preset key binding from the list.

@Knevilo Thank you for this wonderful tool. I use it constantly (to get my corpse most times!) and I love it.
I too have the bug where after rebinding to my F5/F6 keys I have to just take off my gloves and put them back on for it to work. It's not too big of a pain, but maybe if I rebind them back to the Shift+C / Shift+V it will work as intended? However, I've forgotten how to rebind it to a new key - so any help there would be appreciated! :) Thanks again.

A complete lifesaver. This mod is easy to use and works flawlessly. Until the devs decide to put some basic pathing for the creatures into this game, I'd call this mod a requirement, or you'll spend hours looking for rexes who are stuck on a rock the size of a softball.

@Knevilo: As @Jimmy and I have pointed out, the bug still exists. I'm using F5 and F6 for the tracker skin and when I first login, F5 does nothing. I remove my gloves, remove the skin, equip my gloves and add the skin. Now F5 and F6 both work as expected.

@Knevilo, just test it now, when I reconnect after crafting a new one I still have to remove the gloves and put it again.
