I’m for all of those as well. I’m probably the one who would lean on some of the others as well (upgrade station, rare sightings, stargates.)
The various servers have slightly different lists because they sometimes have specific mods for the map. As an example, Aberration has a mod for drake eggs (unless it was removed.) We also have some mods that really should be trimmed, as they aren’t used much if ever and the tradeoff is longer patch time, server reboot time, etc.
We also have a mix right now of S+ and Super Structures, which are nearly equivalent but should be re-standardized across the maps, something Ragan mentioned and I agree with. I’m not sure if all servers have been switched back to S+. S+ seems active again, I’d say that’s best. I’ll lay out the others:
All servers, the heavily used mods in BOLD
642284892 - Dino Healthbars/Torpbars
895711211 - Classic Flyers
793605978 - Super Spyglass
1300713111 - Rare Sightings
558651608 - Bridge Mod
1102050924 - Swim Clear Scuba Mask
609380111 - Stargate Worlds
821530042 - Upgrade Station
731604991 - Structures Plus
538827119 - Omnicular Spyglass
622595587 - Oil Compressor (Fertilizer to Oil)
719928795 - Platforms Plus
725398419 - Snappy Saddles and Rafts
750483861 - Dino Aid
566885854 - “Death Helper” Corpse Finder and Suicide Potion
962984672 - Ticket Mod
1583513249 - Boss Packages (replaced ticket mod on a few servers)
566887000 - Pet Finder
770854372 - Armor Stand
708807240 - Pillars Plus
569786012 - Meat Spoiler
876038468 - Baby Premium Care Imprint and Growth Helper
2020317130 - Monte’s Engram Unlocker
Should probably be trimmed:
Bridge mod - I’ve used it once. I don’t think many of the other users have even used it.
Oil Compressor - Goes around the gameplay for oil and is pretty OP
Platforms Plus - The rarity of any of us using platforms makes this a heavy mod for little use
Pillars Plus - S+ has a lot of this, I’m not really sure what we need more than that for
Pet Finder - Sometimes works, sometimes doesn’t? Not sure if this is the same as Dino Tracker?
Omnicular or Super Spyglass - We have a user split in which one people like more
Armor Stand - Not used much
Snappy Saddles and Rafts - S+ takes care of a lot of this, Snappy was an extension but for as little as we have either … probably should be trimmed.
Ticket Mod - deprecated, replaced with Boss Mods
I’m open to suggestions to add/remove or just add the ones Ragan mentioned, etc. Also @barstein, these get loaded when joining the first cluster server with them, and due to the number, you’ll time out several times upon first connect as the mods take a while to get loaded. You have to reattempt a few times. Due to that, try connecting to a cluster server on its own a few times until you’re successfully connected, then upon character select you can bail out. After that, you can transfer your character/dinos/belongings across servers.
The issue with mods is that if they don’t match across the cluster, we’re left with either not being able to transfer mod items on us(transfer prevention), or them disappearing when transferring(item loss).
Gentlemen are we in agreement to mod?
