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.

Stopped working for me yesterday. Bummer. Great mod most of the time though. maybe the patch messed it up and I just noticed yesterday.

sERIOUSLY DUDE...thank you - THIS is the very first mod I've ever used in Ark - to fix a nagging problem with me losing dino's ALL the time (must be dementia). They have had a native dino tracker in Pixark (a game I have over 8k hours logged.

Beats me why this isn't a standard UI feature of ARK (ooooh that's right the devs want you to use up valuable engram points on a tracker AND a node then spend a fortune in resources to make each node - something that should have been a STANDARD FEATURE!

The tracking of nearby wild dino's is also very VERY useful feature. If I wasn't unemployed ATM I'd throw some $$ your way to buy yourself a six pack!

What's the Dino Mobile?

@JustHnoss the search distance seems to coincide with the client's clip plane. Setting it to "epic" will give you the biggest search radius. I don't think the client has access to data beyond the client's clip range.

@Dragio Master those really high level mobs are probably inside a cave where the level cap can be exceeded.

Could it be possible to add a config setting for search distance?
