ARK Diseases

You’ll most likely encounter bugs due to how complex the code is. Mod has been tested both on SP and dedicated but it needs public testing. Please report any bugs you may encounter. ARK Diseases Evolved is a heavy work in progress!

Fully stackable with any mod and can be loaded last.

Properties

Welcome to ARK Diseases Evolved – introducing you to a new level of biological warfare!
X amount of creatures will be infected with random ARK Diseases. These diseases will spread to players that go near them. Once infected, you’ll start to suffer the consequences of your contracted disease. Some of them go away over time, and some will not and must be cured. Diseases are spread by being near a carrier – how close depends on the disease itself.

ARK Diseases Evolved Support every map and will also infect all types of modded creatures and player pawns.
Infections are started by consuming the ARK Diseases Spawner – which can only be spawned in by admins. Creatures that have the bIsBossDino ticked will not get infected.

Disease Mode

Standard mode. Will infect X amount of wild creatures. These diseases can only be spread from infected wild creatures to humans. That’s it. They can be cured using the Universal Cure, learned at level 1. This cure also works like a vaccine, you can prevent getting diseases by preventively drinking it. Cure also works on creatures.

Extinction Mode

You can change an option in your GUS.ini to enable the extinction event. If this is enabled, the original diseases will not be used. This disease will infect wild creatures, tamed creatures, and humans. It can spread in all directions and it can not be cured. Once infected, you start to lose health and after 300 seconds you will be dead.

Diseases

Remember, this is a WIP, some may be adjusted, removed, or completely revamped. I might add in more diseases later on as well.
