Add back creatures WC removed via ini

Last year when valguero launched I saw this thread: 

 

And I want to create something similar, so I'm going to try and make this a repository for all ini changes you can use. I will add a few over time, and if anyone comments with ini changes I will add them to this post. This is your one stop shop for ini changes!

Please note we can only add back creatures already in the game like griffins, we will not be able to add in things like the Grand Embertross or any other modded creaturs via the ini.

THE INI CODES: 
The following ini codes came from the wonderful moTOM here: https://steamcommunity.com/app/346110/discussions/0/2574319728560692464/ I did not make them! All credit to him!

Add these lines to your game.ini under [/script/shootergame.shootergamemode] and restart your server with destroywilddinos.

Created by ME: 
ATTEMPT TO SPAWN PARAKEET FISH SCHOOL FOR TAMING MEGACHELON (Something is up with Parakeets, tell me if they do spawn...)

ConfigAddNPCSpawnEntriesContainer=(NPCSpawnEntriesContainerClassString="DinoSpawnEntriesUnicorn",NPCSpawnEntries=((AnEntryName="Swarm", EntryWeight=1000.0, NPCsToSpawnStrings=("MicrobeSwarmChar_BP_C"))),NPCSpawnLimits=((NPCClassString="MicrobeSwarmChar_BP_C", MaxPercentageOfDesiredNumToAllow=0.65))
)
ConfigAddNPCSpawnEntriesContainer=(NPCSpawnEntriesContainerClassString="CI_DinoSpawnEntries_FloatingIslands_Main",NPCSpawnEntries=((AnEntryName="Swarm", EntryWeight=1000.0, NPCsToSpawnStrings=("MicrobeSwarmChar_BP_C"))),NPCSpawnLimits=((NPCClassString="MicrobeSwarmChar_BP_C", MaxPercentageOfDesiredNumToAllow=0.65))
)


Other Megachelon Spawn locations

ConfigAddNPCSpawnEntriesContainer=(NPCSpawnEntriesContainerClassString="CI_DinoSpawnEntries_FloatingIslands_Main",NPCSpawnEntries=((AnEntryName="GiantTurtle", EntryWeight=1000.0, NPCsToSpawnStrings=("GiantTurtle_Character_BP_C"))),NPCSpawnLimits=((NPCClassString="GiantTurtle_Character_BP_C", MaxPercentageOfDesiredNumToAllow=0.15))
)

ConfigAddNPCSpawnEntriesContainer=(NPCSpawnEntriesContainerClassString="DinoSpawnEntriesUnicorn",NPCSpawnEntries=((AnEntryName="GiantTurtle", EntryWeight=1000.0, NPCsToSpawnStrings=("GiantTurtle_Character_BP_C"))),NPCSpawnLimits=((NPCClassString="GiantTurtle_Character_BP_C", MaxPercentageOfDesiredNumToAllow=0.15))
)


Deinonychus (You cant tame them since they wont lay eggs, but I did this in case you want them in your world for a bit of authenticity)
ConfigAddNPCSpawnEntriesContainer=(NPCSpawnEntriesContainerClassString="DinoSpawnEntries_CW_Bloodfall",NPCSpawnEntries=((AnEntryName="Deinonychus", EntryWeight=1000.0, NPCsToSpawnStrings=("Deinonychus_Character_BP_C"))),NPCSpawnLimits=((NPCClassString="Deinonychus_Character_BP_C", MaxPercentageOfDesiredNumToAllow=0.25))
)

Magmasaur (Same thing as with Deinon, you cant tame them since they wont lay eggs, but you can add this to put them in your world for a bit of authenticity)
ConfigAddNPCSpawnEntriesContainer=(NPCSpawnEntriesContainerClassString="AB_DinoSpawnEntries_Basilisks",NPCSpawnEntries=((AnEntryName="LavaLizard", EntryWeight=1000.0, NPCsToSpawnStrings=("Cherufe_Character_BP_C"))),NPCSpawnLimits=((NPCClassString="Cherufe_Character_BP_C", MaxPercentageOfDesiredNumToAllow=0.15))
)
 

Saddle Engrams (Made by me)

Add snow owl saddle engram

EngramEntryAutoUnlocks=(EngramClassName="EngramEntry_OwlSaddle_C",LevelToAutoUnlock=61)

Velonasaur Saddle Engram
EngramEntryAutoUnlocks=(EngramClassName="EngramEntry_SpindlesSaddle_C",LevelToAutoUnlock=27)

Gacha Saddle
EngramEntryAutoUnlocks=(EngramClassName="EngramEntry_GachaSaddle_C",LevelToAutoUnlock=38)

Mana Saddle
EngramEntryAutoUnlocks=(EngramClassName="EngramEntry_IceJumperSaddle_C",LevelToAutoUnlock=66)

MegaChelon Saddle (If you manage to tame it)
EngramEntryAutoUnlocks=(EngramClassName="EngramEntry_GiantTurtleSaddle_C",LevelToAutoUnlock=45)

STACK MODIFIER: (Also made by moTom on the same thread)
Make Primal Crystals stack to 20

ConfigOverrideItemMaxQuantity=(ItemClassString="PrimalItemConsumable_Honey_C",Quantity=(MaxItemQuantity=20,bIgnoreMultiplier=true))
ConfigOverrideItemMaxQuantity=(ItemClassString="PrimalItemResource_Crystal_IslesPrimal_C",Quantity=(MaxItemQuantity=20,bIgnoreMultiplier=true))

What we need:

Creatures listed on the mod version of Crystal isles that never made it into the official version

Their saddle engram auto unlocks

 

Also for anyone interested I have a large ini file that adds back in SE engrams, tested on Genesis. If I see a lot of interest ill post it here.

 

P. D. Certain ini changes like to add rock Drake's back in are usually blocked by WC so sorry if you were hoping for that. But thankfully WC has only blocked a small number of creatures and almost never blocks engram unlocks!

 

P.P.D. I am also running a win 10 server cluster, and if their are any server owners out there who are interested I can share how I got that setup as well!

 

Happy Arking!

Thanks so much for this. I just started my Windows 10 xbox server. I want to add Gachas and Snow Owls to my CI map. I noticed the Spawn Entry listed above is DinoSpawnEntriesSnow_C but the Spawn Entry online is listed as DinoSpawnEntriesSnow ( https://ark.gamepedia.com/Spawn_Entries#Crystal_Isles). Does it make a difference which one I use? Thanks!

has the deathworm and giant turtle spawn codes worked on console, specifically xbox?

Giant turtles are working on the win10 version so I imagine that yes there is a very good chance they work on XBOX, however there is now way to tame them because the parakeet fish swarms that you need will not spawn via ini for some reason. As for the deathworm I'm not sure on that one, I give it like a 60% chance.

Sorry for the late reply! I don't actually know whether or not it makes a difference, I'll run some tests and see if it does in fact make a difference. For now use the one listed in the wiki. If it doesn't work then try _C! Good luck and if you have any more questions I'd be happy to answer!

Thanks for this, just tamed a Gacha, and have seen the giant turtles and velonasaurs, so they're definitely working.

Two questions:

Where are the spawn points for the owls? I've been looking all over the snow biome and haven't found any yet.

Would it be possible to try to add the rock drake/rock drake eggs? I'd like to tame a basilisk, and would prefer not to spawn the eggs with cheats.

 

Thanks again

@CantRecall This is what I use on mine for rock drakes. Spawns drakes and fertilized eggs, but the drakes aren't in the sub-floating-isles-caves where the nests are. I don't think there's any way to get them under there unfortunately, but this should work.

ConfigAddNPCSpawnEntriesContainer=(NPCSpawnEntriesContainerClassString="CI_DinoSpawnEntries_FloatingIslands_Main_C",NPCSpawnEntries=((AnEntryName="Rock Drake",EntryWeight=0.5,NPCsToSpawnStrings=("RockDrake_Character_BP_C"))),NPCSpawnLimits=((NPCClassString="RockDrake_Character_BP_C",MaxPercentageOfDesiredNumToAllow=0.05)))

Thanks! I just found that cave last night, wondered if that was where they originally spawned.

So what's the spawn point for your code? Somewhere specific, or just look around?
