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

1). 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.

3). 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.

5). 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.

2). 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.

4). 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.

6). 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.

Our ARK PVE Server Mods

These mods are auto download on server entry

Structures Plus (S+)

This building mod aims to overhaul the basic building system of Ark: Survival Evolved by adding new features and structures. Highlights include resource grabbing from any available container, modified building, structure snapping, automatic doors, and many more.

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.

Wardrobe Skins

The wardrobe Mod is a great mod if you are into Roleplaying, and since our ARK Server is PVE, it certainly can be the place you and your friends can do that. It provides many different ways to dress your characters, creating endless possibilities.

HG Stacking Mod 1000-50

The HG Stacking mode gives -50% weight reduction and customized stacking. This allows you more freedom during your ARK PVE Quests without getting encumbered with stuff.

Additional Emotes

This is a fun one. It adds over 56 new unique emotes, with much easier and faster emote handling. You can sit or lay down anywhere, do jumping jacks, pushups, and 12 different dances. Something a lot of our players enjoy on our ARK PVE Server.

CM Modern RP Wardrobe

In addition to the Wardrobe Skins mod, we have the modern role-playing wardrobe. These skins are modern-style clothes you would see people wear in the streets today or stylish soldier uniforms.

Meat Spoiler

A favourite with our ARK PVE players. The Meat Spoils, instead of waiting hours, even days. You can now put meat in this device and have stacks of spoiled meat in minutes.

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.


Who doesn’t like good hairstyling on their character? With Marnii’s Hairstyling mod, you can guys do just that.

Burlap Sack Blindfold

Another great role-playing mod is blindfolding your prisoners. Their vision is not entirely disabled but significantly obstructed.

      ARK is an in-depth game with lots of content. On the Salty Zombies ARK PVE Servers, we have all 12 maps PVE cluster so that you can move between them. However, completing all 12 maps would take a solid 3 months with lots of new content. So below are some videos to help you with the new content.

      Nams, the founder and owner of Salty Zombies, is a big Jurrasic Park fan. Although not many played in ARK, he loves the insane idea of taming dinosaurs, strapping guns to them and taking them to battle whilst welding a high-tech sniper rifle. If you are interested in knowing more about our ARK PVE servers, check out Nams on Twitch. He sometimes streams playing on the servers. You might also be interested in checking out other people from the Salty Zombies Twitch stream team.
