Paintable Rugs, Wall Art & Lighting

MOD ID: 1446292779

Most of the Rug designs in this mod are in my “Paintable Furniture” Mod. You will only need this mod if you want extra rug designs. In the future any new wall art and rugs will be added to this mod. Not Paintable Furniture.

Have you ever wanted something to cover those ugly bare walls in your base and have something to fill that large expanse of floor? Well now you can with my latest mod, Paintable Decor! This mod has been designed to provide my fellow ARK survivors with a selection of contemporary rugs and wall art which can be painted to match your mood, tastes and styles. All items can be crafted from the Paintable Decor crafting table.

This mod will compliment my other mods Paintable Interior Decor and Paintable Furniture where you can decorate your base in a selection of contemporary and traditional furniture.

The items are mostly white, this is so the dyes look vibrant and means you can have every colour to choose from. If these items are placed outside they can be blinding in daylight, so if this is the case then I recommend using the command r.bloomquality 0

I do plan on adding alot more to this mod over time. The art work is drawn by myself and takes time to do. I aim to add large updates now and again rather than lots of smaller updates. If you have any suggestions for pictures or other paintable decor you would like to see in this mod, then please leave these in the comments below and I will see what I can do!

I really hope you enjoy the mod.

NEW! Add your own ART work

By popular demand I have added the option to add your own ART onto a rug and canvas. These are called "Custom Rug" and "Custom Canvas." You can not freehand paint them however, you are only able to upload to them.

The file names are as follows, this is what they will read from.

Custom Rug


Custom Canvas


As long as you call your files by this extension within your “MyPaintings” folder where your ARK Saved Games are found then they will open onto the rug and canvas in ARK.

i recommend a video tutorial unfortunately. either Im just dumb, the instructions were unclear, or the mod has issues.

I WILL say i got it to work by first doing the standard ARK PNT conversion (With canvas setting)
THEN adding in "Custom Canvas" into the file name, renaming the whole thing for some reason causes the crushing problem

But even with this, it just stretches the poor quality of a normal canvas across a massive one, which really doesnt help. The tiny pixels from the small size make the picture almost impossible to make out.

Im not sure if its the picture i used having poor quality, too many colors for the converter, or, again, an issue

@NihilisticShitLord I will test this again as it’s been a while since mod was updated, but it worked fine for me the last time I tried.

does this mod straight up not work as intended? Ive tried converting to a sign PNT : didnt show up on the custom canvas load list.
Tried just renaming an image to _Sign_PaintingCustomCanvas_C.pnt : Didnt work show up either.

Used the ARK PNT converter, but your mod crushes it to the top 10% of the canvas, the same pixel quality of just doing this normally.

Nothing works

Can you add the paintable Canvas in your paintable Funiture mod please? That would be perfect.

@deblake60 it needs to go in you “MyPaintings” Saved folder. If you don’t have one you need to attempt a painting in game and save it first and then put any images in that folder

@Lisa I tried the custom and I can't seem to find what I need to upload. Here is my folder placement: E:\Steam\steamapps\common\ARK\ShooterGame\Saved\SaveGames and here is the file name of the image grootautism_Sign_PaintingCustomCanvas_C.pnt

Did I do it wrong?

@deblake60 I started modding just over 1 year ago, I literally had no clue how it was done. I watched tutorials on You Tube, I joined the modding Discord, I spent many hours playing with items and changing things to see how it worked. I learned how to 3D Model in Blender watching videos and within 3 months my first mod "Paintable Furniture" was born! I have modded nearly everyday since and thoroughly enjoy it. Anyone can make a mod, you just have to take the time to learn :)

Thanks for the help! :) I can't wait to see what you do. Wish I had the skill to MOD. lol

@deblake60 Also I do plan on bringing alot more to my mods, but as everything is made by myself, from the models, to the designs and textures, it takes a loong time to get all this content together for a decent update. I do want to add more, which is why i have the survey, so i know im working on content you want to see. Here is a video of an ATLAS mod I made, and I will bring some if not all to ARK in time.

@deblake60 Yep, thats it :)
