SpawnSetupDino Command

cheat SpawnSetupDino <Blueprint Path> <Blueprint Path (Saddle)> <Saddle Quality> <Level> <Stats> <Spawn Distance> <Y Offset> <Z Offset>

This command will spawn a dinosaur (specified by blueprint path) with your desired configuration. This command allows you to specify the saddle, level, stats, and location of the spawned dino.

Argument Information

The syntax for this Ark admin command is as follows:

Blueprint Path Type: Creature Blueprint The blueprint path of the dinosaur you wish to spawn.
Blueprint Path (Saddle) Type: Item Blueprint The blueprint path for the saddle to put on the spawned dinosaur. Specify just "" (two quotes) here if you don't want the dino to spawn with a saddle.
Saddle Quality Type: Number A number for the quality of the saddle on the dino, specify 1 here if you aren't giving the dino a saddle.
Level Type: Number A number - the level of the dino you wish to spawn.
Stats Type: Text Specify "" (two quotes) here if you don't want to set the stats of the dinosaur. Otherwise, specify a comma separated list of stats and values in the following format: "Stat1=#,Stat2=#", replacing Stat1 and Stat2 with stat names and # with your desired stat value. For example "Stamina=5,Health=40" would set the stamina of the spawned dino to 5, and its health to 40. Stat IDs:
  • Health
  • Stamina
  • Torpidity
  • Oxygen
  • Food
  • Water
  • Temperature
  • Weight
  • MeleeDamageMultiplier
  • SpeedMultiplier
  • TemperatureFortitude
  • CraftingSpeedMultiplier
Spawn Distance Type: Number A number - the amount of distance in front of your character the dino will be spawned (i.e. 500 = 500 in front of you).
Y Offset Type: Number A number - the Y offset of the spawned dino. This is how far left/right the dino will be spawned (relative to you). Specify 0 to spawn directly in front of you. -100 would be 100 left, 100 would be 100 right.
Z Offset Type: Number A number - the Z offset of the spawned dino. This is how far up/down the dino will be spawned (relative to you). Specify 0 to spawn at your current Z coordinate -10 would be 10 down, 10 would be 10 up.

  • cheat SpawnSetupDino "Blueprint'/Game/PrimalEarth/Dinos/Sauropod/Sauropod_Character_BP.Sauropod_Character_BP'" "Blueprint'/Game/PrimalEarth/CoreBlueprints/Items/Armor/Saddles/PrimalItemArmor_SauroSaddle.PrimalItemArmor_SauroSaddle'" 10 35 "Health=100,Food=20" 100 200 300

    This console command spawns a Brontosaurus (as it specifies the Brontosaurus' blueprint) with a Bronto Saddle with 10 quality. The level of the spawned Brontosaurus is 35 with 100 Health and 20 Food. It is spawned 100 in front of your character, 200 to the right, and 300 above your character (Unreal Units).

  • cheat SpawnSetupDino "Blueprint'/Game/PrimalEarth/Dinos/Sauropod/Sauropod_Character_BP.Sauropod_Character_BP'" "" 0 35 "Health=100,Food=20" 100 200 300

    The above cheat command is the same as the first, but instead spawns the Brontosaurus without a saddle (as we have omitted this argument by replacing it with "").
