About Our ARK Servers

We have a massive cluster of 8 separate maps and room to expand when we discover more! What’s better than 8 maps to chose from? Not having to choose of course! Full cluster transfers are enabled between all the servers so you can move around freely.

Our goal with configuration has been, and always will be, to make progress accessible to people who have full time jobs and IRL commitments, whilst maintaining the challenging gameplay that ARK offers. This provides an engaging experience without the frustratingly long timers of official servers. We achieve this through a wide range of custom settings and mods that can all be read about here!




Vote for Rewards!

You want more people to play with? You want cool ingame rewards? Then this is the right place! You can vote for up to 3 of our ARK servers per day on ARK-Servers.net in order to help boost their rank and make them more visible to new players. You can do this at the three links below! But what do you get for voting? Each vote earns you one silver coin in our Store. These points can then be used to purchase ingame items and creatures, as well as a variety of other services such as imprinting, recolours, and renaming your character.

Rules

Although we do try and keep things friendly and relaxed, we do occasionally have to enforce some rules on the servers. All the general rules for the community as a whole can be seen on the community page, but there are some specifics for the ARK servers. Most often, breaking the rules will result in receiving a strike. After three strikes you will be permanently banned from both the servers and the discord. We may however skip strikes if the actions warrant it.



General Server Rules

  • PvP is not allowed. This includes anything that could be seen as causing harm to another player or their creatures. Griefing is not acceptable.
  • Supply drops, element veins, and wyvern/rock drake eggs are first come first served. Do not steal from someone who was there first.
  • Cluttering the map with structures and dinos is not allowed. Please clean up after yourselves when you leave an area. This includes taming pens, beds, sleeping bags, and dinos abandoned at obelisks.
  • Do not prevent resource respawns. This includes not emptying beaver dams and dropping low level wyvern/rock drake eggs.
  • No hacking, or making use of exploits.

Rule Enforcement

  • 3 Strikes will result in the player being permanently banned from the community.
  • Warnings may be given before receiving a strike.
  • Players can be banned without 3 strikes if deemed necessary by an Admin or Founder.

Building Limits

The following limits are applied to building on the servers and buildings in violation of these rules are subject to removal without warning

  • Each solo player is allowed one base with a maximum size of 150mx150m, one outpost, and one water pen per server. (Temporary structures like taming pens and sleeping bags are fine so long as you pick them up when you are finished.)
  • Each tribe of two or more players is allowed one base with a maximum size of 200mx200m, one outpost, and a water pen.
  • An outpost or water pen can be a maximum of 100mx100m.
  • Rafts do not count as an outpost if they are parked within another base or outpost, or do not have any structures built on them.
  • Bases cannot block artifact caves, obelisks, explorer notes, supply drops, large resource clusters, or through paths.
  • Do not build within render distance of another base. If you would like to, you must ask the person who was there before you begin building.
  • Do not build on or very near the obelisks.
  • Bases and Outposts need to be more than 2x2 and contain a bed, and a storage unit. If these are not present, it will be considered clutter and cleared out.
  • Resource collectors such as oil pumps and sap taps do not count as an outpost if they are unlocked.
  • Locked resource gatherers (Oil Pump, Gas Collector, Sap Tap) count as an outpost, and a tribe can only have one locked/blocked collector per map.

BodyGuard System

Our custom Bodyguard system ensures you never lose your items from server issues or griefers. Here’s a quick overview;

  • Players outside your tribe cannot drag your body while you’re offline.
  • Players outside your tribe cannot access your corpse’s inventory.
  • Players outside your tribe cannot access your dead dino’s inventories.
  • Players are immune to damage for 15 minutes after logging off to give people time to reconnect after a crash or disconnect.
  • Players are immune to damage for a further 3 minutes after logging in to give them time to recover from a crash or disconnect and regain their bearings.

Crosschat

Chat between all 8 of our servers is seamlessly linked by default! Everyone can see everything from every map as if it was sent from the same one. No big yellow text here!

Supply Drops

We have a fully custom supply drops across all our servers! No more compas and crop plot blueprints to be found. Every item in the game should be included somewhere and we’re always listening for suggestions on how to improve them.

Disabled Features

In order to keep the challenge of the game, and not erode any of the main gameplay elements, a few engrams and features are disabled. These are;

  • S+ Resource Pulling is disabled as we believe that inventory management is a key part of maintaining a base in PvE. It also has a significant effect on server performance when enabled on a busy server.
  • S+ Tek is disabled as it can be used without unlocking the tekgrams. This previously resulted in people buying tek from other players rather than defeating the bosses themselves.
  • S+ Tranq, Cannon, and Rocket auto turrets are disabled as they made it very easy to tame things. Especially with quetz tranqing gunships.
  • S+ Automated farming structures are disabled as we believe farming is a key gameplay element that should not be automated.
  • Eco Trees placeable redwoods are disabled as they remove the uniqueness and challenge of building in the redwood biomes.
  • Flyer carrying of wild dinos is disabled to prevent giefing, and because we think taming in the wild is much more fun and challenging.
