          First 2 were good. I'd try to slow down just a little bit while talking, but it's not a big deal. Made it half way through the 3rd one, then went off on a tangent in the dev kit, so I have yet to finish the 3rd one lol.

            I would like to watch a tutorial on how to add human NPCs, I want to create a mod about a tribe of natives but I'm missing the main part...
            The natives!

                  TY for the tutorials organization. Helps us noobs a lot

                  Also, I made a suggestion on using flowcharts to help clarify how all the assets are connected, and I will make more for the videos you listed if you think it would help people:

                    Hey man, I really like that idea. After a few videos of doing it I was hoping people would just get the hang of it. But I think that's a great way to bridge the gap from copying everything bit by bit and learning to really do it yourself. Thanks man!

                      Hey Guys and Gals,
                      I still a new developer. I only have 4-5 months experience, even less with the ARK game itself. One thing I am finding really frustrating in game, is how easy it is to get lost or how hard it is to find your way to help a Tribe member. I seen in some games like Entropia Universe they have a position hot key to mark where you are. It forms a link in chat where people in your channel can then click the position you post in your channel of choice. This then opens a GPS like tracker with arrow and distance to that Target point. I would think some of the Developers here already would know how to track where a player is and set a Target Point. and then just use a widget of some sort for arrow and distance. I still fairly new as I said. But I do feel something similar would really improve game Play for all Players New and Experienced. Happy To help if anyone is interested in this Idea. I still need to learn a lot about unreal and also Ark. Just a thought. Let me know if anyone thinks this is easy to Implement and a good Idea. Sam Frederiksen

                        Here's a quick video I did on how to add a mod item to the engram list and the proper structure inventory, great for beginners without having to go through a whole item mod tutorial just for this tidbit!
