About Our ARK Servers

We have a massive cluster of 10 separate maps. This means that not only do you have access to all official content, but a whole load of modded stuff to! What’s better than 10 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 has always been to provide an accessible ARK experience whilst still maintaining the core challenges that ARK offers. This means all configuration has been done to make things quicker without removing any difficulty. All our mods have also been hand picked and tuned for balance. This does mean some features are disabled, but we believe it’s for the best.


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 kiting dinos to harm another players base or tames, stealing items, and drowning players while they’re offline.
  • No stealing of supply drops. Supply drops are first come first served. This includes orbital drops and element veins on Extinction.
  • Any form of hacking or abusing of exploits is extremely serious. This includes doing anything that’s not intended to be a game mechanic, or anything that in any way harms the functionality of the servers.
  • Leaving structure spam and clutter around the map is not allowed due to space and server performance limitations.
  • Tribes must take responsibility for the actions of their members. If someone in your tribe is breaking the rules, then it’s your responsibility to either remove them from your tribe or deal with them.

Building Rules

Due to space and server server performance limits, we also have a number of rules related to building on the servers.

  • Each solo player is allowed one base, one outpost, and one water pen.
  • Each tribe of two or more players is allowed one main base, two outposts, and a water pen.
  • Resource collectors such as oil pumps and sap taps do not count as an outpost if they are unlocked.
  • Spam structures, such as single pillars, bed sheds, and other clutter are not allowed outside the base walls.
  • Outpost are defined as any structure with 4 walls, a roof, and some type of functional structure such as storage or crafting.
  • Outposts cannot be any larger than the length of a Titanosaur.
  • A base cannot be unnecessarily big. This depends heavily on the location and the amount of unused space within the base.

Map Cleaning

Occasionally we also have to manually clean up some clutter and unused junk on the maps. We do this based on the following rules.

  • Dinos found abandoned outside of base or on wander will be posted in the ark map cleaning channel in discord and then deleted if not claimed within 48 hours.
  • Dinos abandoned on an obelisk or inside another player's base will be deleted immediately as they are likely to be obstructing other players gameplay.
  • Spam structures, such as single pillars, bed sheds, and other clutter will be cleared on sight.
  • Any bases found to be blocking resources or built in artifact caves will be posted in the map cleaning channel and will be deleted after 48 hours if not removed.
  • Any half decayed or floating bases will also be cleared from the map.

Jamon Live is our ARK server monitoring system. Using this site you can log in and see a whole load of info about everything on the servers. Simply log in using your steam account as you can keep track of all your dinos, breeding timers, generator fuels, and even crop plots. Click the link below to head on over there and get started.

What is disabled and why?

  • Resource pulling, and any related items, are disabled due to the strain that constant mass item transferring puts on the server. We've had it enabled before but everything was very laggy.
  • The S+ demo gun is disabled for similar reasons to resource pulling. If many people use it at the same time to take down large bases it also causes lag.
  • Flyer carrying is disabled for two reasons. One is that it allows trolls to drop wild dinos into your base and kill your tames. The second, is that we are a PvE server and swooping down on a flyer and taking potential tames back to a safe pen completely removes the E from the taming process.
  • The S+ bee hive is disabled as it provides multiple improvements over the vanilla one and removes any drawbacks. It effectively removes the mechanic of bee keeping.
  • S+ farm automation (Nanny, Farmer, Gardner) is disabled as it completely removes the need to care for crops and baby dinos.
