  • Hi All, was wondering if Im doing this right, I went to a ini code generator and it had a spot to replace dinos with other dinos. I tried putting in the code, but I wasnt even sure where to put the code in. Heres what the website gave me


    NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "Troodon_Character_BP_C", ToClassName = "LanternPug_Character_BP_C") NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "Moschops_Character_BP_C", ToClassName = "LanternBird_Character_BP_C") NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "Pegomastax_Character_BP_C", ToClassName = "LanternGoat_Character_BP_C") NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "TerrorBird_Character_BP_C", ToClassName = "Owl_Character_BP_C") NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "Achatina_Character_BP_C", ToClassName = "Achatina_Character_BP_Aberrant_C") NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "Ankylo_Character_BP_C", ToClassName = "Ankylo_Character_BP_Aberrant_C") NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "Toad_Character_BP_C", ToClassName = "Toad_Character_BP_Aberrant_C") NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "Direbear_Character_BP_C", ToClassName = "Direbear_Character_BP_Aberrant_C") NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "Doed_Character_BP_C", ToClassName = "Doed_Character_BP_Aberrant_C") NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "Equus_Character_BP_C", ToClassName = "Equus_Character_BP_Aberrant_C") NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "Rex_Character_BP_C", ToClassName = "Volcano_Rex_Character_BP_C") NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "Trike_Character_BP_C", ToClassName = "Trike_Character_BP_Aberrant_C") NPCReplacements = (FromClassName = "Bigfoot_Character_BP_C", ToClassName = "Yeti_Character_BP_C")




    Is this right? Do I just plug it in and off it should go? Didnt seem to want to work yesterday

  • the closest I could find was the How to remove some Extinction creatures to any ARK map and that wasn't quite thorough enough for me. It states that it can be use on PVE, but doesnt mention anything about PVP which our server is. Also Im trying to do a lot of this on my phone, for which you said

    1)- Not using expert settings, the code is inserted in the "Engine Settings" link found in your WebUI. note NOT all ARK items are predefined.


    Does that mean I can just drop the codes in there and I wont have to do anything but save, restart, and wipe the dinos?

  • Code is available for PVP/PVE. it is the same code.

    And if the code is used in the game.ini, you can drop it in the window below in the Engine settings. Make sure the server if offline, then paste code, save, then restart.

    If the code you are using requires to be in the gus.ini, then you would need to edit via Notepad/notepad++ while using Filezilla via FTP (ONLY avail for PC servers. Consoles will have to use the webUI file explorer to edit the gus.ini.

  • Well, I tried my code with and without spaces, all it did was remove all the dinosaurs I was trying to switch out. Aka, no ankylos, does, moschops etc instead of replacing them they're just not there. The server is considered unofficial PC/Xbox
