Dino Spawn Configuration Tool
Ark: Survival Evolved
We have updated our site and moved a few things. An updated version of this page is available here:
This tool allows you to quickly and easily adjust the Dino spawn rates in Ark: Survival Evolved. It also allows you to disable or substitute the spawning of the various Dinos. Quick and easy to use, this tool gives you the code you need as well as detailed instructions on how to make it work for you!
If you are looking for other tools, you can find a complete list of our growing collection of customization tools here: Customization Tools
Simply adjust the settings and click 'Generate Code'. The code will be created for your GameUserSettings.ini and your Game.ini as needed.
This tool can also be used for Single Player & Non-Dedicated Sessions. For information on customization in these situations and for information on what customization can do for you in general please see this page: Balancing Ark
Disabling And Swapping Dino Spawns
The boxes below will allow you to either disable or swap out Dino Spawns. Of course you can also leave them set to No Changes and that will make no changes. To disable a Dino type from spawning, simply set that Dino Type to 'Disabled'. If you want to swap the spawning of one Dino type for another, just change the type in the box to the one you wish to substitute.
An example of this would be to spawn a Dodo instead of a T-Rex. To do that you'd find the box with T-Rex written beside it and change its value to Dodo.
Be warned that this does not destroy Dinos that have already been spawned into the world. It will only stop more from being spawned. If you want to be rid of existing Dinos you'll have to use an admin cheat in game to destroy them. See the notes at the bottom of this page for more information.
