Level Weight

From ARK: Survival Evolved Wiki

One of the many values that are configured for the creatures of ARK: Survival Evolved and its DLCs is the Level Weight, or in terms of the DevKit the data structure named Dino Base Level Weight Entries in the blueprint {creature}_Character_BP.

These numbers specify the probability of the level a wild creature will have when it spawns into the game. Most creatures share the same values. The DevKit value Level Range needs to be multiplied by the Difficulty to get the in-game level.

There is also setting named "Dinos Lerp to Max Random Base Level" that can be configured in the World Settings of a map, and it influences the Level Weight, especially for the higher level. This setting has a value of 0 for The Island and all Lore DLCs and 0.5 for The Center and Ragnarok. However, how exactly it works is unknown.
