    Mystic Academy Tuts Introduces The Ark Dev Kit Series

    I have noticed that a lot of modders need help with things in the kit so I decided to start doing some video tutorials for the community. I believe it would be more fun making mods if there were more people out there competing. The way I can help with that is by trying to pass what I have learned while building mods. I take requests for tuts as well. Considering videos have been rare lately thought I'd add up to date stuff. Keep an eye on my channel a lot of new tuts will be coming out for the dev kit.

    I know that these first couple are covering the basics but I need everyone to understand the workflow of being in the dev kit as we get further the tuts will become more complex. I hope this is helpful to the community.

    I Decided To Put The Source Out For This Mod As I Build It May Help. You will Need to extract the folder with files and place in same directory as the dev kit mods directory you use.

            Any chance you can do a tut on editing boss dinos to be able to spawn in the wild & act like a normal dino? AIController, etc. Also, dino drops.

                  A few other good ones would be custom armor, guns (like the tek gun), extra dino attacks (how to add them etc, like how the quetz has a barrel roll anim but it's not a default attack). Editing dino variant stats (health, melee etc.) How to set overall dino level for the mod.

                  These are all questions i've seen in the discord where people get stuck on. I'll throw more ideas up here as i can think of more to help you out.
