Ammo Pools (Fixed!)


I have been unable to recreate the crash issue everyone has been experiencing lately, but it definitely is an issue. I believe I found what was causing the issue and have put this out as a fix for it. HOWEVER, I am going to need your help on determining if this really will solve the issue. Please comment on this mod if this has resolved the crashing issue.

Unfortunately, a new build of my rig caused me to lose the Steam information for the old mod, so I had to reupload it as this version. Sorry for the inconvenience.

As always, thank you everyone for your patience and support. I apologize that it took so long to get a (potential) fix out for the mod, as life has been extremely busy lately. For those who haven't exactly been supportive, I wanted to apologize that this mod has become so engrained into your idea of an enjoyable Ark experience that it drove you to a lack of decency in your comments and behavior. But my sincere thanks to the patient and positive folks out there who have been understanding.

Spawn Code

Use this code to spawn in an Ammo Pool:

admincheat GiveItem "Blueprint'/Game/Mods/AmmoPools/Structure/PrimalItemStructure_AmmoPool.PrimalItemStructure_AmmoPool'" 1 1 0

There is also an engram for it. You can learn it at level 60 after learning the Auto-Turret Engram. You craft it in your inventory.

How to use an Ammo Pool

Step 1: Place an Ammo Pool

Step 2: Open the radial menu by holding 'E' and then select "Connect to Turrets". This will automatically connect it to any turrets in range. You do not have to do anything to the turrets themselves. If they successfully connect, you will see a blue ring around each turret that connected. The ring will disappear after a few seconds.

Step 3: Place some Advanced Rifle Ammo in the Ammo Pool's inventory. Watch the magic happen.

Other Features & Info

Ammo Cap
The ammo cap is a limit the Ammo Pool checks whenever it's giving bullets to a turret. If the turret is at or is above the ammo cap, the Ammo Pool won't give it any bullets. Once the turret drops below the ammo cap, it will start receiving bullets again.

You can adjust the ammo cap through the radial menu on the Ammo Pool, up or down by 50 at a time. It can go up to 50,000. You can also still manually put bullets into the turret if you want to go above the cap.

View Range
This option is also on the radial menu. If you select it, a sphere will appear that shows how far the Ammo Pool reaches. It will disappear after 15 seconds.

Activate Turrets
Also on the radial menu, this will turn on any connected turrets that have power. This is to make it easy to turn all your turrets back on if they get shut down, your generator quits, or a sandstorm blows through. There currently isn't an option to turn them all off at the same time.

Change Range
Radial Menu - Adjusts range for all connected turrets.

Change Targets
Radial Menu - Adjusts target settings (players only, wild only, etc.) for all connected turrets.

Change Warning
Radial Menu - Adjusts warning time for all connected turrets.

Change AP Range
This adjusts the range of your AP between low, medium, and high. Medium is the default.

Inventory Slots
The AP has 150 slots in it's inventory. On vanilla Ark, this means you can store up to 7,500 bullets - much, much more if you have a stacks mod.

Visual Cues
Each time a bullet is sent out from the Ammo Pool, the sides of the structures will blink orange. When a turret receives a bullet, an orange circle will blink around it (looks like the blue ring when you're connecting turrets).

Ammo Dispensing Rate
Ammo dispenses from the Ammo Pool at the same rate as the turrets fire (every half second). Additionally, it will distribute one bullet to every connected turret (that is below the ammo cap) at the same time. This means if you have 8 turrets connected and all 8 need bullets, all 8 will receive a bullet every half-second. This allows the turrets to all keep firing and it distributes the ammo evenly to whichever turrets need it.

We've had a near-overwhelming number of people ask if they can contribute to continue seeing our community grow and expand, so we opened up a Patreon just for that purpose! This helps us pay for the server so we can focus on modding, and if given enough support, expand the server and community even more. We won't ask or push anyone to donate - we don't fly that way - but if you would like to, here you go!

Ark kept crashing and I was wondering why, was it this mod? (I read that it caused games to crash, i needed to reinstall Ark again.)

Dear modeller! Now a lot of automatic mods for the distribution of ammunition. Even in S + there is a manual loading of cartridges, but among other things there is a lot of trash. Could you make an independent mod that allows you to simply load cartridges manually radially, without automation. Thank you in advance! Regards "player"!
I will track your responses.

Is there a way to have the .ini files... i would love to be able to change something's in my server.

Just a note, not long ago we had a raid event on a server I used to play on, there were a few ammo pools in the base, that while filling during soaking the server experienced heavy lag while the ammo pool filled up the few hundred turrets at the base, while it was being soaked. The server eventually did crash due to this as well. Hope this mod is updated, I love it and makes it easy to fill turrets and have them cap without overloading turrets with the transfer tool, or the AA genie.
