At least it’s done. With the help of the community, I managed to make this mod. It was hard and painful, but I learned many things doing it.
Now, I’m too impatient to present my work !
As a graphic , my first thoughts when I launched Ark for the first times were :
Whoa ! unbelievable ! so much beautiful landscape and dinos !
but ? but ?? Why is the water so STATIC ?!!?
Now, for just some kilobytes of download, you can have a cool ocean tide.
Relax on the beach watching the sea, but care about wet feets.
Look at turtles walking or swimming as the sea move, pteranodons fly off as water touch them.
Watch a parasaur escape a raptor, just because suddently there is more water and the raptor needs to swim.
The mod is clean, stackable as it doesn’t modify any map or object. It’s just a small map extension.
Have fun with it, and feel free to comment.
I’ve put the source file on unreal forums to help other modders to add ocean tide to their own maps.
I consider this update no more work in progress. Maybe I could fine tune the height and amplitude latter, but I think it’s fun lke that
