Is there any variable in the ARK Dev Kit that allows you to hide custom engrams, when you have used Additional Engram Blueprint Classes in the mods’ GameData?
For example, one of my mods allows the admin to spawn a Pick Axe that can knock down any structure instantly. However, this mod still appears in everyones’ engram list, in-game, despite it being impossible to craft the custom item. The “Give Blueprint to Player Inventory” variable is off, and I have set the level requirement to 1000, costing 1000 engram points.
Don’t use the master item list, that really should only be used for testing purposes.
There is an .ini based setting you can use I believe. I don’t know if it has to be set by the server owner or if it’s possible somehow to do it in the graphs(I know we can read .ini’s from graphs) but in this post is how you can hide engrams.
im not sure where your getting this info of the master item list being unclean it works perfectly fine for what your trying to do as long as you name the primal data of your object to something like test then your fine then when your ready to push it through name it to what you want and add an engram for it i do it all the time when testing and have no issues with it or just make another mod for testing your mod its pretty simple honestly
You “could” use the Master Item List for your engrams - if you do the item will work only until the parent company updates next. Then that update will overwrite your information - or worse, your add-on item will be in the place where something they put is in place, causing one of the two to error out. It’s just not a good idea to use that list, it’s not meant for us.
Be safe - Be clean - Use the Additional Item Lists (Engrams, Structures and Classes). You’ll be happier for it.
Now to answer the question: Can you hide an Engram?
Sure - Don’t create it in any list. Have the admins use the spawn item as mentioned above.
I have many consumables that are not engrams - and are crafted in special crafting ways. Like for example the Dry Kibble - Universal Dino Food, great for feeding (All dinos prefer it over normal and it has a long shelf life (Even longer in a feeding trough) - terrible for taming. It’s made with no eggs so you can save them for baby dinos. Shameful Plug You can’t learn it - it’s an auto craft in the Kibble Maker, BUT an admin could spawn the item still using the full cheat command.
