    ARK: Dev Kit Documentation

    Hey ARK Creators!

    We have made quite a few changes to the way the stock engine works so we want to provide some of our internal documentation to answer some questions and spark new ones! This is a work-in-progress, so if you have any pressing questions or would like to see any topics covered don't hesitate to let us know.

    Next Up: Lighting!
    • Creating Master IBLs
    • Interior Lighting

    Well. I just created a new Folder in Mods. Then i modified the original Blueprint'/Game/PrimalEarth/CoreBlueprints/Resources/PrimalItemResource_Silicon.PrimalItemResource_Silicon'. Then i tried to cook that newly created folder as a Total Conversion. It did not even show up in my Cook/upload Mod to steam. And after a reboot the folder even disappears.
    Could you PLEASE make a small guide on how to make a Total Conversion from the scratch with like 1 modded original file? This would be totally awesome. There is no single working Total Conversion mod online except SOTF. Please we need this guide realy hard!
    Maybe you intended that you can cook without choosing a mod folder. This is not possible.

              You don't need to create any new folders for a Total Conversion. Just start modifying files directly, SAVE them, and then Cook Total Conversion. That's all

                You can't cook anything without selecting a folder in the cooking window.

                          Hey gankey69, I think I know how. I used, I believe, the method you are asking for in my teleport arrow mod. I use the method get owner controller on the arrow obj, then on the return I set it to the next method which is get controlled pawn, which should give you the player who owns the obj. I used this because at first my arrows were teleporting the admin to the players but now it teleports the owner of the arrow, so it should work for getting the owner of an obj. Hope this helps
