An automated server event system. Rare Sightings allows a limited number of higher than max level dinos to occasionally spawn and notifies the entire server when they do. Tame them or slay them first for unique rewards!
How to Play
After this mod is added, the game is already going. This mod will automatically scan your server for dinos to upgrade into Rare Sighting events! To participate fully, players should place a radio in their hotbar. With a radio hotbarred players will automatically receive transmissions of the events going on around them: new sightings, sightings that have been tamed, and sightings that have been slain and are no longer in the game. Changing which slot you have your radio hotbarred can give you additional messages: Slot 8 will also tell you how many Rare Sightings are currently active for your server; Slot 9 will also give you updates of random sightings already in the game. Once a Rare Sighting has been spotted, the race is on because there are rewards for taming or slaying them.
Rewards for Taming a Rare Sighting
Besides the obvious reward of taming a higher-than-normal level dino, some rare sightings will also have rare coloration and traits that are not usually seen for their species. And these are real colors that can be passed down to their offspring! Additionally, a freshly tamed Rare Sighting will have a 2x Experience buff for 30 minutes! Afterwards they are yours to keep and will not go away if the mod is ever removed.
Rewards for Slaying a Rare Sighting
Don't want your neighboring tribes to get that latest Rare Sighting? Get there first and kill it! Besides keeping it out of their hands, you'll also get precious loot which could include items, blueprints and resources, as well as a Slayer Buff for 20 minutes which gives you a 2x Experience boost and 20% bonus to your Melee damage and Stamina!
