Total Conversion

hello, everyone

me and a few friends of mine want to go and create a total conversion for ARK:SE but we dont really know where to start or how to set up.
could anyone give a tutorial about how to set it up and how to get going. because i have searched the internet and couldn’t find anything of how to make it
help would be really much appreciated.

if more info is needed, this is what we want to go and do:

-we want to create a (huge) map
-we also want to delete most dino’s, and replace the remaining ones with animals out of real-life (medieval-times)
-and we want to add quite a lot of weaponry/change textures of them. tons of shields/swords/bows/arrows/knives/pikes and more

again help would be really much appreciated. :slight_smile:
