    ARK DEV KIT - Editing a pre-existing mod for private use?

    I want to edit a mod that adds an item to the game. All I want to do is increase the cost of the crafting for said item for balancing purposes. I want to eventually post the mod privately for friends for our server. I can see no way to take the original files into the editor however. I was able to sort of "force" them in by placing them within the preexisting file structure, but upon opening these assets, the dev kit crashes with unknown function errors. Am I just out of luck? Thanks in advance.

    You can only edit a mod if you have the original files for it. The files that are downloaded from steam when you subscribe to the mod are the compiled ones. They will not be editable. You might want to contact the mod developer and see if they'll share files for you to edit yourself.
