So, Let me explain this a bit. First thing is if you don't know what Ark is, it is a survival game where you are in the wilderness trying to survive by gathering resources and taming dinos. This mod is going to try and implement that. It will have natural spawning dinos, armor, overhaul the vanilla wood system, add in a different crafting method (ex:the smithy, you put in items and click on what you want to craft), timers for crafting, tameable and rideable dinos and so much more. This mod will basically overhaul a lot of the vanilla mechanics and replace them with Ark-like mechanics. For example, when you cut down a tree and you break a log wood will come out instead of a log into 4 planks.
If you would like me to elaborate some more i would be more than happy to in this post or in a private message.
