Short version; How can I get a dino’s level?
The goal is to create an item you can use that will give you “hunter’s awareness”, the ability to easily spot high level dinos. I don’t want to edit and relink every dino, nor do I want to do a total conversion. While digging around I noticed buffs have ‘AOEApply Other Buff on Dinos’. I decided to poke at that a bit so I created a new item that when used triggered a buff which then triggered a buff on surrounding dinos that added a particle effect. I then started playing around with the event graph of the buff to have it only activate the particles if the dino was over a certain level. I got it to only activate if the dino passes an ‘Is Dead’ check, but I have no clue how to get the dino’s level.
While browsing around to try and get an idea or figure out if it’s even possible, I found Joan’s Pet Finder. That mod can apply particles to selective dinos, so it seems possible. I noticed BaseBearTrap in the mod’s files. I also noticed “Faster searching algorithm” in the mod’s change notes, so however it did it is probably well beyond my capabilities.
