No Wander

No Wander 1.83

No permission to download

The plugin is a very simple quality of life change. (ATLAS release available on discord)

The plugin will do the following if the setting is enabled.

New baby dinos will not wander at all now (very small 6% chance this fails and they move once)
When you claim a new baby this can automatically set it to Passive.
When you claim a new baby this can automatically set it to ignore group whistles.
When you tame/claim a new dino this can automatially set it to No Ally Looking.
Plus More...

Randomly set dino names when claiming it.
Set the dino name to the player name claiming it.
Set default targeting range to high when claiming it.
Set to target only conscious when claiming it.

Tribes are now able to override your server default settings based on their personal preferences.

  • /NoWander (Will give usage information in game similar to this information)
  • /NoWander ? (provides a list of server options and their default setting)
  • /NoWander tribe (provides a list of tribe settings that you have set with the server default shown as well.)
  • /NoWander <option> <on/off> (Using the option number and on or off you can change a setting. The <option> value can be obtained using the ? command)
    • /NoWander 7 on (Will change your tribe settings to Randomly Name Dinos when claiming.)
    • /NoWander 7 off (Will change your tribe settings to turn off the option to Randomly Name Dinos.)
  • /NoWander stats (provides base breeding stats of the dino you are looking at tribe only or all dinos depending on server setting "DinoStatsTribeOnly")

Configuration Details:
  • DinoStatsTribeOnly: True will prevent getting wild or enemy tribe dino stats.
  • AutoNoWandering: True will force baby dinos to not wander server wide. False will force baby dinos to wander server wide.
  • CommandText: Change this if you want to make the command in game different. /NoWander
  • ServerList: Is the secondary command that provides the server default settings. /NoWander ?
  • TribeList: Is the secondary command that provides the list of tribe settings that were changed. /NoWander tribe
  • Lines that start with "Auto" like "AutoNoAllyLook" cannot be changed or plugin will not function.
  • Id: Do not change this or you will have issues with tribe settings.
  • Name: You can change this to say whatever you like in whatever language.
  • Default: true or false are the only valid settings here.
    • true = Feature is on by default
    • false = Feature is off by default
    • Tribes can override this on their own and I suggest setting the more common settings all players will use to true and leave the uncommon ones as false. I have set the default config how I would use it.
  • Any dinos added to this section will wander when born to help with large dinos where babies are born inside them. Once the baby is claimed wandering will be disabled.
  • Change or translate these however you want but only the text to the right of the :
  • If you are using this you will already know what to do. It works the same as all other plugins using it.
  • Keeping this disabled the plugin automatically uses Sqlite as the database which requires no setup.

Note: Only new babies or tames will be affected by this plugin.
