ARK PVE Server Info

We run the entire 12-map ARK PVE Cluster on a single Dedicated beast of a server. This makes the cluster more efficient for many reasons. 1, if the cluster were split between different servers, it would create issues and lag when you transfer your character from one map to another. 2nd reason we bought an entire dedicated server for just ARK is that having all 12 maps PVE Cluster takes up quite a bit of resources and adds a lot of players to that, and it’s a lot of stress on the server hardware. However, our dedicated server has enough resources to handle 3x 12 map ARK PVE Cluster. This gives us the ability to hold many players and keep the server running smoothly, bettering your gaming experience.

ARK PVE Server Rules & Verfication

Keeping the peace in a not so peaceful world

Exploits | Glitches | Hacking

We take hacking and exploits very seriously on our ARK PVE Server. If you locate a glitch in-game, we encourage you to report it via our support tickets system in Discord. Doing so will earn you rewards. If you take advantage of an exploit or hide someone in your friend list using an exploit, you and your entire group can be permanently banned on all our servers. We actively reward players who report glitches/hacks/exploits for us to fix.

Zero Sexual Content (Text | Images | Videos)

Oversexualized content is never allowed on this discord server by any means. This includes “straight/gay/lesbian” or anything of that nature. If it’s sexual, it’s outright forbidden on this Discord server. Posting any content on this Discord server that includes sexualized images, videos, or even sexualized Discord text will get you permanently banned from our Discord and gaming servers.

Common Sense Policy

Our common sense rule is just that if something is common sense, but it isn’t outright listed on the rules above, then use your head and common sense to make the right choices and not attempt to find loopholes or such around the rules.

Toxicity Policy

Our approach to “hate speech” is not the same approach platforms like Twitter/Facebook take. We stand firm in your ability to have a free and open dialogue. You will not be punished for expressing your views openly. Our support team will only step into bantering or conversation when it becomes personal attacks such as doxing or threatening. We don’t ban or punish our community members for expressing their personal views on topics. It’s important to understand that bantering is 100% allowed and not something we will not punish our players for it, but we try to keep it respectful.

Don’t Spam | Advertise

You are not allowed to post excessive spam-related content inside the gaming servers. Spam-related content is anything that is rapidly posted or something that is mass-posted by a group of members. Spam, in general, is not tolerated on our Discord community or gaming server.

The most important rule!

Make friends and have a good time! It’s important to understand that these are game servers to allow you to escape from real-world drama. So have fun and have a good time. Try making friends while gaming!

PLEASE NOTE: Even though this is an ARK PVE Server and players can not damage your base, they will still try to find other means of getting inside and stealing your stuff or mess around with your sleeping body. Yes, this is against the rules, and we will know who it is and ban them. However, we will not replace any lost or stolen items. So make sure your base is secure, including from the roof and windows. Lock up all your boxes, all your doors etc.

Let’s GO

Our ARK PVE Server Mods

These mods are auto download on server entry

Super Structures

Super Structures is a better and more up-to-date version of the Structures S+ mod since that mod hasn’t been updated in a while. SS is a much cooler and more efficient way to build your base. It’s pretty much the best base-building mod there is.

Awesome SpyGlass

Like a regular spyglass but so much better, it may show items such as coordinates, food lists, buff lists, item lists, players, structures, crates, and eggs and dinos.

Ark Additions: The Collection

Adds more unique and amazing creatures to the world of Ark.

Better Horde Mode

It can be frustrating on ARK PVE Servers when the hostiles are impossible to find. Well, with this mod, the enemies are marked after a certain amount of time so you can see their location.

Remove Cryopods

This mod remaps Cryopods into Soul Traps and Cryofrides into Soul Terminals. This is a much better way to store your dinos.

Lethals Reusables

Lethal is a well-known modder for ARK Servers, and he created this great mod that not only adds lots of great quality-of-life items but makes them reusable. From flare guns to infinity grapples. It even removes the durability over time. However, they can still lose durability by being damaged.

Krakens Better Dinos

Krakens Better Dino improves many of the Dinos on our ARK PVE Server. Some of the Dinos are tweaked and others are completely overhauled.

No Untameables

Ever want to tame all those pesky dinos that normally cannot be tamed? This mod fixes them all and adds some QOL features to our ARK PVE Server.

Shiny Dinos

Adds unique creatures to the map. They are slightly higher level. These creatures sometimes have Rare and Unique abilities. They spawn randomly and stay on the map for a short time, so get them while you can.

Auction House

Trade with players across our entire ARK PVE Cluster, buy dinos, supplies, or anything else in this player ran economy.

Extra QOL Items

You ever see a wyvern and look for its egg, and it just doesn’t exist? This mod fixes and adds all sorts of QoL features for you to enjoy on our ARK PVE Servers.

Dino Storage V2

Replaces cryo pods, you may ask why? These are extremely configurable to our needs and allow us to add all sorts of QOL features and notable changes to our cluster.

Castle, Keeps, And Forts Remastered & Science Fiction

Adds some awesome buildable for that base build you have dreamed of. This mod is a fan favourite and speaks for itself. Its probably one of the most popular mods for our ARK PVE Servers.

    Connection Issues

    As we know, ARK is a very buggy and resource-intensive game. If you are having issues connecting to our ARK PVE server, there are multiple things you can try.

    Firstly, it’s always better to download the mods first. Click here to go to our Steam workshop list of all the mods on the ARK PVE server and select “Subscribe To All”.

    Not enough Disc space.

    If you’re low on Disk space, you will have difficulty connecting or Running ARK. But if you played on other servers and Steam games with Steam Workshop mods. When you connect to these other servers, you download their mods automatically, and they remain on your computer until you unsubscribe from them. To unsubscribe and clear some disk space, go to your steam, hover over your name and click on “content” in the drop down menu, then hit the “Workshop Items” tab and on the right you will see “Subscribed Items”. Once that opens up, hit the “Unsubscribe From All” button.
