TCs Auto Rewards
This mod allows server admins to configure “Packs” to be purchased by their players using a currency which can be either distributed by admins in-game or automatically using realtime cycles. I have been told this mod can be used as a replacement for the kits plugin if you happen to be using a linux server.

Why Create This Mod?
I had originally created this mod solely for my server but it turned out so well that I thought I’d open it for any admin to use.
We have various events all the time on my server and I wanted an easier way to reward the winners than having to spawn in a bunch of items each time. With TCs Auto Rewards I can just open the admin menu and give the winner some points which they can spend on any of the rewards which I’ve configured.

Please Note:
There are no default packs in this mod, you will need to configure your own in game.
Check out the Config Settings Page for more information on the settings available.

Quick Facts
  • Multiple packs can be configured and each can contain any number of items.
  • The stats of the items are customisable; (Change the quantity, armour rating, damage, durability, insulation, etc)
  • Items can be vanilla or modded.
  • Include resources, consumables, armour, saddles.
  • Have themes for your packs; (i.e Taming Pack which contains a crossbow and some tranq arrows)
  • Lock Packs behind certain Tags (i.e Level requirement, Admin Only, Custom Tag)

Each player uses ARc (Auto Reward Credits) to purchase reward packs. A players ARc balance attached to their SteamID, this ensures if they create a new character their points will still be assigned to them. Admins can Update players details including their ARc balance via the admin menu. Please keep in mind that ARc balances are specific to each server. If you join another server that has TCsAR installed, your balance will not transfer over unless both servers are linked using the TCsAR API.

Income Systems
  • Time Based Income (Real Time; Distributed to everyone as long as at least one person logs on each day)
    7 Timeframes for Income
    • Daily
    • Weekly
    • Fortnighly (Every 2 Weeks)
    • Monthly
    • Quarterly (Every 3 Months)
    • Semiannually (Every 6 Months)
    • Annually (Every Year)

  • Played Time Bonus (Real Time; Distributed to each player as they play on the server only for the time they play)
More info in Config Settings Page

Reward Vault
Both the Admin Menu & the Reward Menu are accessed via the Reward Vault which can be learned at lvl 5 for 0 engram points. It can be crafted in your inventory using 20 Raw Metal, 30 Stone, 50 Wood & 25 Hide. It is a wall mountable metal vault with reduced health (1000hp) and 300 slots (INI Configurable). It does not yield very much xp per craft but may be a little overpowered in terms of having a cheap metal storage box accessible at level 5. If you feel it is too overpowered, you can enable a setting in the INI file to disable the ability for people to place items inside the Reward Vault.

Future Features
While I love suggestions, please remember I reserve the right to create the mod how I see fit.

Looking for Ark Server Hosting?[]
TCs Auto Rewards will work in a Non-Dedicated environment, however, it is designed for a Dedicated Server environment. If you need a server host, I'd like to suggest giving a look. They easily have the best custom service I have experienced. They also host other games, for example they can offer Rust Server Hosting[] as well.

it's complicated to use? I'm a real novice
TimmyCarbine  [author] May 31 @ 4:20am 
It is possible. I use Beacon [] to get the config setup quickly. My mod is registered with Beacon so all the blueprint paths are already stored on it. Alternatively you can look up how to modify loot tables on the wiki, lots of info there.

I know I'm annoying you a lot, but some players on my servers have asked me if it was possible to add your ARc to the loot table of certain dinos, for example bosses or alphas.
t4kumi May 31 @ 12:38am 
thank you very much, it's really nice that you replied so quickly
TimmyCarbine  [author] May 31 @ 12:02am 
Ok cool, then you'll find the packs saved in the SaveGames/TCsAutoRewards folder of your server. Just copy and paste it in the same location of other servers creating the necessary folders if needed.

I'm not trying to synchronise between each server, it's mainly to keep the packs I've made and not need to redo them one by one.
TimmyCarbine  [author] May 29 @ 1:09pm 
@t4kumi the data for players and packs are stored in SaveGames/TCsAutoRewards/ but copying them won't sync the servers, it will just copy the data one time. In order to link the servers in your cluster you'd want to check out the API I created for the mod. I give access to it through my patreon, most people only need the very basic tier. This gives you 2 keys, one for player data and one for pack data which can be used on all your servers you want to link. If this seems interesting to you I highly suggest you read the set up guide in my discord to fully understand how to set up the API.

@Stone who did you ask and what do you mean by "custom port"? No body should be offering to port my mod.
t4kumi May 29 @ 10:04am 
i have one last question i want to create clusters for my servers and i would like to know if there is a file to copy to the other server to keep the configuration on the clusters.
Stone May 29 @ 7:07am 
When I asked this guy about selling a custom port of this mod he told me it would cost $3,0000.
Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa that's when I knew he was bat crap crazy.

ok thank you for your quick reply thank you very much
