    ok, very new to this, not started on anything as yet, going through all tutorials, but im wanting to know how i can add a particle animation and set color of said particle, so say like when u drop the parcel from ur inventory, it would produce a particle effect so it can be seen easier, and if there is a way would it work on most items in game? thx in advance from the noobest noob in here, i think lol

    [MENTION=86943]thewookie91[/MENTION], I'm having trouble resizing dinosaurs. Even with resizing the collision component, they spawn in the air and float around indefinitely. Would you know a solution or somewhere I can turn to that would help me figure this out?

    Thanks!

    Bows spawn WITH ammo, you should have 1 shot in your weapon when you spawn it, also this is a thread about tutorials you should probably post this question in a thread.

    go to the narc arrow or tranq arrow I forget the name, but the stone toripidity arrow is the weapon arrow, make a child of the narc/tranq arrow and move everything into your own mod folder. update your weapons damage to your own new files. reassign your own ammo files to the weapon and change the weapon templates.

    [MENTION=86943]thewookie91[/MENTION] Hey, so I've been trying to make a mod that adds 3 new tranq arrows, mainly increasing the DoT of the arrow. So I would like an arrow to do 250% weapon damage as torpor for like 30 seconds.

    However I copied all the connected files for the existing stone arrow, which for some reason the damage types is Melee_Torpidity_StoneWeapon or something like that. Either way I copied everything over, changed the DoT settings and tried to test. Firstly I'm only able to use 1 of them in test mode. I crafted a stack of 10, but am only able to use 1. Can't reload, nothing.

    Then when I try to cook the mod and upload, it uploads to steam with no information and 0.000 MB file size. No picture (even though I made one), no title, no description, nothing. And it says it's hidden, even though I made it public. I'm so confused by all this, it's got me lost.

    [MENTION=86943]thewookie91[/MENTION] true, many a crash lol. but you and I both know when you know the exact file you need to edit you can get everything done in between crashes with time to save cook and upload =p

    You forgot to take into account the first 45 minutes of the dev kit loading/crashing.

    [MENTION=427774]Sgt. Morrigahn[/MENTION] To do that you simply change the damage type of the weapon.

    You can do this in 60minutes.
    Step 1: Duplicate Weapon and all weap and primal files linked to it directly.
    Step 2: Move them into your own mod folder.
    Step 3: Modified your duplicate of DmgType example for bows DmgType_ProjectileWithImpactFX_Tranq
    Step 4: Link your weapon to this modified duplicate.
    Step 5: Decide if you want to edit existing, or make your own.
    Step 5a: Remap existing bow to your modified version in your mod folder.
    Step 5b: Link your version in the EngramEntry to the additional Engram list.
    Step 6: Cook.
    Step 7: Upload.
    Step 8: Sip pina colada. This mod is done, and you still have 45 minutes to enjoy your drink.

    I am brand new in the modding community , so a very much thank you for these tutorials you are providing.
    I was wondering, how to change how much torpor is applied from different weapons?? I am trying to make a mod that will use different arrows with different torpor applied. Yes I know there is lots of mods doing it, but I want to do it too
