Clone buildings with a press of a button.

Save buildings, and place clones of the originals anywhere.

Works with most vanilla and modded structure pieces, see limitations for details.

Note that a lot of modded structure pieces use materials that are considered non-primitive, and thus by default you need to use tek saver and restorer to work with them. For more information about the differences between primitive and tek variants, check the documentation.

This mod adds structures that can be used to save and restore. Two types of savers: a primitive variant that is limited to saving structures made of primitive materials, and a tek variant that can save all types of structures. Similarly there are two types of restorers. For more information, check the the documentation.


  1. Create and place down a Structure Saver
  2. Adjust settings and start the saving process using the wheel menu
  3. When saving is complete, use the generated Building Plan item

Restoring (cloning):
  1. Create and place down a Structure Restorer
  2. Use the Building Plan Menu to select and activate a building plan
  3. Adjust settings and start restoration using the wheel menu

For more information see the documentation, and frequently asked questions (FAQ).

I hope you can paste the building on the dinosaur saddle

@SirLoin: The documentation lists the files and their locations, the files are not tied to the map in any way, so yes it works between maps. Do note that if you "wipe", the "wiping" may include deleting these files, it depends how you "wipe".

@SirLoin - I have copied the configs in the savedarks dir - or at least I think it's that directory and had it work.

Does this Mod work between Maps? Or if Ark wipe and we start over?

@joyr - tyvm - I let iSPEZZ know.

@drsewell: I have public interfaces for other modders to add support for custom stuff like that, you can point the author of the mod to this:

@joyr I run a server just for myself for testing mods/maps. I currently have 40 mods and just restored a huge base. The only thing that wasn't restored was the SteamPunk Recycler and I think that was because it is actually attached to the SteamPunk Grinder. I'm not complaining - in fact the opposite. It's amazing that your mod works so well with a huge number of other mods. Well done and thanks.
