Adding custom dinos

I made a custom dodorex specifically for color, but it will not work at all, everything I have tried has not worked, does this involve somehow adding only the dino itself to the steam workshop (ARK is downloaded from steam) and having it private and download it then? or am I missing something

If you are doing this just for color why don’t you just paint the dodorex or use ARKPntEditor and an image editor like gimp to create a paint file which you apply to your dino
