Dino Storage v2

MOD ID: 1609138312⠀⠀⠀
  • This mod is clean and stackable. It has no list priority whatsoever
  • No game content is remapped or altered. I only add 5 of my own items to the game
  • This mod should also work with modded dinos, as well as vanilla
  • This mod is compatible to future releases of ARK (dynamic data retrieval)
  • If ARK is updated with new color IDs, the soul description will reflect them
  • If ARK is updated with new dinos, the souls can trap them
⠀⠀⠀This is a small mod designed to store dinos as items, similar to a pokeball! By removing tamed dinos from the world, it allows you to maintain a large library of stored dinos without hurting server performance! No more lagtastic dino barns or yards! Dino Storage obeys tribe and server tame limits on release, while allowing a large library of stored dinos that do not count against your tame limit. The mod is fully customizable via INI, making it easy to balance for PvP or PvE use!


  • Cross server compatible (clustered servers)
  • Backup recovery file to retrieve lost souls (export occasionally to have backups)
  • Hover over a soul to view stats & timers
  • Intuitive catch and release system & soul gun
  • Storing of saddles/helmets/weapons/costumes (including paint, stats, skins, & quality)
  • Mating timers count down when balled
  • Idle experience is gained over time
  • Can store babies (freezes age and cuddle times)
  • Stores modded persistent buffs (works with rare sightings, shiny!, etc.)
  • Stored dinos never starve
  • Imprint and stats are retained
  • Newborn auto trapping
  • Offline breeding prevention options
  • Collection, incubation, & generation automation, if enabled
  • All settings are adjustable via 194+ INI options
  • Configure this mod for PvP, there's Cryopod mirrors and preset recommendations

⠀⠀⠀See comparisons on the guide.

⠀⠀⠀You must release ALL dinos from the soul traps before you remove the mod. They will be deleted at server start once the mod is gone. The Recovery.sav file will retain dinos without the mod, allowing you to reinstall the mod and attempt soul recovery using Admin mode. The recovery file does not get auto-removed with mod uninstall, and must be manually deleted.
