  • Join the Discord Modding Chat

    I'd like to formally invite everyone to come and join the discussion over on Discord. This channel is community-lead.

    I encourage you to come hang out if you are looking to get tips, advice, or if you just want to share your frustrations with your latest project. Not often does a person have 100% of the answer, but 100 people each have 1% in their head. Let's work together to get to 100%

    If you haven't heard about Discord, its a free app with a ton of cool features.

    Come join the discussion!

    Come join the fun! The discord group has kicked off really well.

    The more people involved in this group, the better. As it becomes a strong and stronger hive mind. Muahahaha

      Big thanks to those who set this Discord group up! It is proving invaluable for me and it has really accelerated my progress with the Ark Dev Kit. Cheers!

          Trying not to get irritated that there's 70 people in the #modding channel and not a single person replying. Why log into the chat if you aren't gonna chat? lol

            That's exactly the attitude that won't get you an answer! There are a lot of people in there(from all over the world, hence more people might answer at a different time) and eventually someone will answer. I just saw your question, i might have helped you but you are gone already because you didn't get an answer after 20 minutes. I'd also suggest you look up some unreal engine tutorials because your question is basically "how do i get a variable from a actor reference".

              From personal experience being an active member of the mIRC QuakeChat for Ark Modding, Just because I'm signed in, doesn't mean I'm not working on my own mods, and 20min? I could go 2-3 hours before I take a break on my own mod.

              Don't join mIRC or Discord and expect everyone in there to be actively watching the chat 24/7. People in there are doing it for free, to be helpful to the community, or people are in there desperately trying to fix their own problems. If you can't wait 20minutes for someone to notice and help, watch some cat videos on youtube or something. Hopefully you never need to go to an ER and wait for 5 hours to see a doctor...

                            Hi, I am trying out this thread.

                            I have downloaded the ARK Dev Kit, and also watched plenty tutorial windows. But nothing would help me better to learn how to develop mods with the ADK, than creating an actual usable real mod with your help. That is why I am here. I need a step-by-step assistance for the first one or two mods, then i should be able to take off from there. :-)

                            Mod 1 that I want to develop:
                            An ultra-flat square that can snap onto foundations, floors/ceilings, or walls. It will have a texture and will appear like a wallpaper or carpet or tiles, etc.
                            It must not prevent other items to be mounted to foundations, floors/ceilings or walls, and it also should be mountable to those even if other items are already mounted onto the underground. Please give me a step-by-step guide (can be splittet into several postings). Thanks a lot!

                            Mod 2 that I want to develop:
                            an ultra-flat "stripe" that can be mounted on foundations, floors/ceilings, or walls, and that illuminates a room. Not one strong light source integrated, but many smaller ones so the illumination takes place along the length of this light stripe. Light color adjustable with the three RGB sliders (as seen with food recipes), and light intensity also adjustable with a slider.
