King of the Ark


KOTA is a Persistent PvP mod like no other! A giant free for all, where you get to experience fun, hectic fights Ark has to offer without the grind!

Spawn in and pick up loot from custom made loot spawners and loot drops placed all over the map. New players will spawn in the south where they will only be able to open "basic" loot drops until they progress to the higher levels. XP is mainly gained by killing players, although a small amount of passive XP will be gained the longer you stay alive.

So, what's the objective? TO BECOME KING!! The King of the Ark is the player at the top of the leaderboards. And the player at the top of the leaderboards is the player with the most XP. XP is stolen from other players as you kill them so you'll have to get slaying if you have ambitions of rising to the top.

This Ark mod enhances the infantry based PvP and provides several assets to help customize and balance the experience provided to players as they try reaching the throne…

Gameplay Assets:
  • Damage hit markers with custom sounds for flesh/armor hits, headshots, kills and bolas/trap duration
  • Bola, Y-Plant and Bear Trap configurable durations with fortitude multiplier.
  • On-screen compass & server leaderboard position indicator.
  • Custom Drops, Double Drops and small crates Tiers 1 to 3 with configurable required level and loot.
  • Jam Whip (prototype). A whip that jams weapons temporarily instead of stealing.
  • On-screen server wide animated kill feed.
  • Two initial items to solve “character stuck on terrain” issues.
  • Indestructible placeable tent for logging out/ going AFK for a while (PvP Balanced)
  • Fast paced configurable taming system. Shoot dinosaurs with special kibble ammo (Veggie/Meaty).
  • Two leaderboard structures (wood/metal). Paintable, custom effects and fireworks when Top 3 changes.
  • Golden crown model for the King.
  • Survivor Reveal event with light beacons and custom sound (Yellow for the King)
  • Tiered gems (white to red) as replacement crafting resources. Light and easy to memorize.
  • Group of structures for extracting gems from gear, repairing, making kibble and element.
  • All Tek Weapons & Armor variants that don’t require engram to equip.
  • Configurable initial extra stats for players (on spawn).

Administration Assets:
  • Configuration structures for settings, on spawn equipment, loot system and Weapon & Armor stat upgrades.
  • Crystal structure to make all buildings look like environment (No HUD, unlocked, indestructible and powered).
  • Camouflaged Tek shield for blocking admin-only areas.
  • Special Ammo & Weapon for configuring Dino taming and kibble costs.
  • Special Ammo & Weapon for server configuration and utilities.
  • Loot System – custom structure for spawning drops or crates, replaced explorer notes with crates and configurable spawn rate based on the number of player online.

  • Whole new spawn distribution across the south shore line (theIsland). With parachute and temporary shield.
  • Whole brand new server clustering system. People will be able to run their own KOTA server clusters and benefit from Queuing, Player name enforcing and anti-cheater report system.
  • New reveal event for loot & Survivor Reveal attached to players & HUD indicator.
  • Kill feed with icon for weapon/dino.
  • Wild dinosaur damage and kill indicators.
  • New structure for upgrading Armor & Weapon stats using gems.
  • Several bugs fixed through brand new, lighter implementation.
  • Server-side logout system available (no KOTA Network required).
  • Improved leaderboards with server type indicator (Unregistered, Unofficial, Unranked or Ranked).
  • Final version of Jam Whip & Torch item for smelting on inventory.
  • Automatic Alpha Dinosaurs removal and baked in Game settings.
  • Brand new passive XP system and on-the-fly configurable player stats.

After testing out the items on a sp server, I liked the crystal that made structures part of the terrain so nothing could harm them. Would you consider making something like that a standalone mod? I've been searching for something like it for a while without any success.
