All dig sites and more dinos for PC

Unread postby The blue shirt guy » Tue, 9th Sep 2014 12:02

I have always found it difficult to pick and choose between the dig sites, since can only have five of them it's seriously limits the variety of dinosaurs you can have.

Years ago I tried a mod I found online, a set of instructions to rewrite some of the game's code allowing you to unlock all the dig sites in one game and increase the maximum number of visitors and dinosaurs. I tried to follow the instructions as best I could but all I ended up doing was making all the dig sites disappear and I had to reinstall the game.

I want to know if any of you know about this modification for the PC game and whether it is actually possible to do it safely

Yes, it is possible, and very simple. In fact, it was the first modification I made to the game

All you need to do is go into the game files, find fslhunt, look for "Windows and Xbox builds", and change:

maxchosen = 5;

to

maxchosen = 9;

And if you want to progress through the game and unlock fossil sites as you go along, just add starratings, as shown below;

starrating[0] = 0;
starrating[1] = 1;
starrating[2] = 1;
starrating[3] = 2;
starrating[4] = 2;
starrating[5] = 3;
starrating[6] = 3;
starrating[7] = 4;
starrating[8] = 4;
starrating[9] = 5;

You know, if you use mods, it really enhances the gameplay experience. If you want me to, I can direct you to some really good mods. Hope this helps!

Ok, i had a look in that file but how do you ad the extra stars? And again how do you increase the max number of dinos?

I don't think you can add extra stars, if you mean up to 9 stars.

# of dinos is in the Constant.ini file, and find MaxDinoPopulation.

New problem. After editing the document I try to save and it says: access denied.

Save to a different folder and then replace the original file
