  1. Pros: The cosmetics were awesome. The bola skin was great, the sweaters, etc. The new emotes were good too -- always love those. Cons: Holiday decorations still vanished when you ended the event. That's not cool. =P People worked for those. That's like buying a Christmas tree, decorating it, and then having some dude kick in your front door and steal your tree because -they- think that Christmas is over. =o Suggestions going forward: Make the holiday resources non-competitive. Being forced into PvP, or being forced to fight for nodes from other PvE players, just to get some decorations/skins? That's not very relaxing or festive at all. The randomly spawning graveyards was a great example of holiday resource generation done right. Skins should simply be unlocked and selected from a menu, not physical items. Working your ass off for a holiday sweater, only to lose it to a random death, is needlessly cruel. Once unlocked, players should just be able to select what skin they want to be visible from the UI. Prime example: The bola skin. Paying electronics for a one-time throw? How does that make sense? Allow all holiday decorations to stay as long as people want. Don't make the holiday events a huge grind. People have lots of stuff going on over the holidays, and adding stress by giving people a small window to farm out everything they need doesn't help. If the hardcore players get everything they want on the first day, that's great. It means that they have more time to actually enjoy their items, and enjoy time with family. Nobody should stressed out trying to get the Chibi they want on Christmas day. Overall, great event!
  2. IMHO, the game doesn't need additional "modes", as much as it needs the existing modes to be fundamentally fixed. PvE: Make a proper land-claim system that prevents players from spamming pillars. PvP: Stay on top of ORP loopholes/metas, and work on rolling out ORP to more servers. Offline raiding should be heavily discouraged.
  3. I've been making event mods for quite a while. People generally want: To decorate their bases (without grinding for materials -- the first Christmas forced everybody to fight for Santa drops for days, just to build a single Christmas tree) Fight new monsters (Dodo Rex, Dodo Wyvern, Zombie Dodos, etc) New ways to get cool loot (Santa drops, etc) New dinos and new items, such as Flying Brooms during Halloween (like I've done in ARK Hallows Eve, etc) Feel free to look through my mods for ideas. I submitted these for sponsorship, but there didn't seem to be any interest for some reason. ARK Hallows Eve: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1167006915 Dynamically generated Graveyards which have: Erie smoke clouds with custom suspense music Randomly generated gravestones that can be searched, revealing a custom skeleton monster or an admin-configurable loot chest. Flying Brooms Multiple types User-configurable Glowbugs that flutter around the broom, to make it easy to find at night Can fish while on the broom Speed and flight/ground abilities are fully admin configurable Can be picked up and carried in inventory after you land Skeleton Costumes for Players Candy Baskets (Randomly gives "Trick" or "Treat" candies. Tricks make you do something silly, and Treats give you buffs) All the holiday skins/decorations that are fully resizable Clown Balloons that pop when you hit hard objects. Can be used to apply Torpor to teammates, so you can put on a clown mask and jump your friends Custom music player for the Fear Evolved theme music etc, etc Autumn Feast: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1207997302 Added wild Turkey spawns. Turkeys are tamable and breedable. Build the special "Double Barreled Poultry Pulverizer" (shotgun) to hunt birds Insta-gibs Argents, Terror-Birds, Dodos, and Turkeys When a bird is shot with the gun, no XP is given, the bird explodes in a poof of features, and it drops a custom "Bird Carcass" Pluck the Bird Carcass for Feathers (used to craft skins, such as the Chieftain hat) Deep Fryer Placed plucked bird carcasses in the fryer, along with veggies, and craft Autumn Feasts! Autumn Feasts can be placed on tables, and contain a certain number of Servings based on the size of the bird used Players can place plates on tables, and clicking a plate will pull a Serving from a nearby feast. Clicking the plate again will eat the Serving. Eating Autumn Feasts gives you a "Stuffed - Digesting!" buff, which slowly gives the player food/water over time as they digest. It also increases their insulation stat slightly, because they're fat now. Holiday Delight: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=822564503 Added all of the Winter Wonderland decorations back into the game, and added some new ones. Players can build and sit on a custom Santa Sleigh for fun/screenshots Custom music player (Holiday Delight Wreath) plays the WInter Wonderland music The Snowman has been overhauled to produce snow in the area, and all of his sockets have been overhauled to allow every helmet in the game to snap to his head. Holiday Stockings have been fixed to allow player names The gift-wrap present has been updated/fixed, and now include custom sounds/effects when opened etc, etc
  4. Hey guys, awesome app! Could you add "Stackable Adobe Foundation" for the Stackable Foundations mod? I noticed it was missing from the list. Here's the spawn code: admincheat GiveItem "Blueprint'/Game/Mods/StackableFoundations/Adobe/Floor/PrimalItemStructure_StackableAdobeFloor.PrimalItemStructure_StackableAdobeFloor'" 1 1 0
