Do you get a message that the icons were reloaded? If not, try "cheat ChatIcons.Reload" with that exact capitalization. It shouldn't matter, but it's worth a try.

If you do get a message that the icons were reloaded, can you send me your config?

Thanks! I am still working on plugins, but I'm generally kept fairly busy by my own ARK servers and work.

For the "across clusters" question, are you using a cross-server chat plugin and want the icons to go over that? I have looked into that before, but I can't see any way to make it work from this plugin alone. Sadly, it really needs explicit support built into the cross-server plugin to work, and keeping this plugin fairly specific to just icons allows people to use whichever cross-server chat plugin they like. Though, I would be open to modifying this plugin to help cross-server chat plugins support this if any of their authors are interested.

If you're not using a cross-server chat plugin, copying the config file to all the servers on the cluster should work for the steam id and group lists, but tribe ids differ per server and would need to be specific to each server.

hi sorry if this has already been asked but how would i direct it to a mod ie Primal fear ect ? and also the plugin is loading but i still have no icons ingame .
I don't have any specific experience with using modded icons, but I'd assume it would just be finding the correct path to the icons (it may have "/Mods/" in the path).

Are you getting any errors from the plugin (something like error 1114)? I would expect an error from that config.json since line 14 (the second steam id) has a trailing comma and is the last entry in the list. The fairly strict JSON parser that is in use considers this invalid as it expects another item to follow and it won't find one.

Hi mate,

How can I see the icons before apply them?

Cheers.

Hey @TOFUDIDO,

The easiest way may be to download the ARK Dev Kit and attempt to look around in the content files. I'd briefly looked into generating PNGs from the asset files, but it was going to be more work than it was worth at the time especially since the available icons changes with mods and new DLC releases.

Hello, can you support atlas with this api?
Hey @AtlasYet,

I had gotten far enough to make the plugin compile for Atlas, but it's nothing more than a port and the icons likely only work within the same section of the map.

I'm normally pretty busy, so I have to justify this sort of thing against my other time commitments. Unfortunately, Atlas is pretty hard to justify at the moment since most of its player-base is gone (SteamDB graph).

That's fine. Thank you!
