So, to begin, I realized that in all reality this game doesn’t have a lot of weapons. So I thought to myself, “Wouldn’t it be cool to wield a LOTR Gondor sword?” But finding that the mod community has like 5 weapon mods; and no LOTR mods at all. I decided to do it myself, and found the ARK Dev Kit in the tools tab of Steam and downloaded it.
What I didn’t realize was that it doesn’t work unless you go through hell and back for a launcher, a launcher I cannot seem to download.
The tutorial (Workshop) states that I need some sort of Unreal Engine 4 launcher to start it, and followed these: https://www.unrealengine.com/ue4-on-github steps to get the link to work, but it won’t seem to work.
STEPS I FOLLOWED, AND DIDN’T WORK:
I got a unreal account, I’ve had a github account for years, I copied the username to the Epic Games Github name box in the account settings, and then went to the link, still a broken 404.
The heck am I doing wrong? I just want to make a simple Sword mod
(TBH, no wonder there isn’t hardly any mods for ARK, they’ve made it a living hell to try and get the Dev Kit to work; all you got to do for the Steam one is start the Creation Kit).
Also the option of downloading it via the Epic Games Launcher is a no go, I am not re downloading all 50 gigabytes of broken dreams and hopes.
