SurvivalPlus - Open Beta


A whole new take on ARK awaits you! Experience a more immersive Survival Feeling than ever before as you brave a new and more dangerous world on your journey from the Stone Age up into the Medieval Times. From the first minutes in this Total Conversion to your first castle siege you will find that this is no vanilla ARK experience - it feels like a whole new game!

We recommend playing on our official server!

This mod plays best with larger amounts of people. We encourage anyone looking to get the most out of it to join us on our official server.

The Basics:
Survival Plus aims to completely overhaul how ARK works, from your first minute to your last day.
  • Technology from the Stone Age to the late Middle Ages, but no high tech.
  • Professions: Over 1000 items are craftable and split up between multiple professions.
  • Custom building system with a completely new look (Feel free to request new features or designs!)
  • Extended Survival Mechanisms: Sleep & Exhaustion, Extended Food & Cooking, Custom Poison Weapons & more.
  • Custom RP Cooking - Dodo legs simmered in lemon juice with fried potatoes anyone?
  • Dynamically spawning new resources like tin, copper, limestone and coal.
  • Prospecting and Quarry System for endgame resources
  • Trading: Custom currency and Trading System.
  • Better farming with new crops, fertilizers and farming mechanics.
  • Extended crafting systems with more crafting stations, a new tool system and more.
  • New and changed taming mechanisms, but large dinos are not tameable to keep a survival feeling. Wild dino nests!
  • A more balanced and less "grindy" experience on vanilla rates.
  • Upcoming: Carts for players and dinos ( )
  • Upcoming: Rebalanced Dinos and upgraded Dino AI (partially implemented already).
  • Upcoming: Extended tribe system with a criminal bounty system, territories and more.
  • Upcoming: Religion and "karma" against offline griefing.

For a detailed introduction visit our about page:

Feedback, Balancing and new Features
We are always looking for feedback and ideas for new features!
One of our main concerns is the feeling of "grindyness", so if you find something that you think takes too long or is too annoying - please let us know!
We will do our best to replace this with a meaningful mechanic instead of just blind farming!
Our goal is to make x1 rates feel comfortable for community servers.

@[SR] Nukekubi Our official server is currently set to PvE. We are about to start working on a new gamemode that I call Kingdom vs Kingdom (KvK).. You can read up more on it on the webiste, but the general idea is that it will be predominatly PvE, but will bring in Kingdom level fighting (but not the horrible side effects of PvP griefers).

@Jamex Check the below link and that will give you the paths to our dinos. When tyring to hide dino's you need to be using our version. We are already overrriding the dino's themselves via the mod.

@Justice As fas as engrams when we moved to the journal method there are no engrams past level 30. Most feedback we get about xp is that from 15ish - 30 it slows down some. Is your server set for 1xp or something higher? You must keep in mind that pretty much nothing in this mod is vanilla so even our crafting xp is set by us to 1x and is meant to slow you down enough to not be grindy though.

Survival Plus does modify dinosaurs/creatures though correct? Which means as they are custom versions they need to be disabled as well.


I read in that engram/professions thread that it takes a lot of engram points and xp after a certain level (30? ) to where it starts to become a grind. However we have not experienced this. Our profession engrams have all been zero cost and, we are flying through the levels, with no modifications to any of those aspects. Unfortunately it seems once again, like Vanilla, crafting is the main source of experience. Though I do support that concept more in this version since crafting is fun and useful, yet it's like, one palisade foundation and a wall gives far too much xp. I am at the point I am not even spending the points as I feel it's going to make us too strong.

Is there way to check our values for the engram points (where it concerns professions) and the xp per level is set properly? Like a reset to your default values?

Loving this mod so much! mostly just play around with singleplayer but up for playing with others, os i have a question about the official server: Is it PvP or PvE? :o since i always prefer co-operative gameplay!

I have a lot of dinos turned off in the ini but using this mod they're spawning again.

@Jamez We do not mess with any dino spawns. Those can only be changed by map makers.

@Justice Yes, there is a palisade door that can be placed similar to a wall that acts as a small door.

Anyone know of any mods like this (primitive) but don't mess with dino spawns?
Justice Mar 19 @ 2:57pm 
@Relikt thank you. I guess wood foundations wouldn't be sufficient.
@Tao, Alley is there a way to put a normal sized door between palisade walls? We aren't ready to make a dino door yet, just want something basic for humans, like a wall gate.
Also, are Palisades stackable again?

@Ab_aeterno_203: This mod replaces almost all vanilla content, including structures. Fully vanilla are basically only the items stone and wood, everything else is modded in some way.
