In Basic-Mode

At "Basic Config" and "Game Settings" there is the line difficulty
Set the desired difficulty and save.

In Advanced-Mode

Via "GameUserSettings.ini", set the variable DifficultyOffset= to the desired value and save.

It is still possible in Advanced Mode to increase the difficulty above the official limit.

For this you must add the variable OverrideOfficialDifficulty= in addition to the DifficultyOffset=. Through the OverrideOfficialDifficulty it is possible to raise the maximum Dino levels above level 120. It also increases the loot quality.

As examples

DifficultyOffset=1
OverrideOfficialDifficulty=5

Equals maximum Dino level 150 and LootQuality at 500%

DifficultyOffset=1
OverrideOfficialDifficulty=10

Corresponds to maximum Dino Level 300 and LootQuality at 1000%

After the values in the GameUserSettings.ini have been entered and saved, the server can be started.

ATTENTION: It spawns dinos of all levels from min. to max. level!
