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. Open the saver user interface, adjust settings and start the saving process
  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).

"And it randomly turned people’s bases against them. Random turrets. Random structures. Turrets started to shoot their own base."

@Shinigati: Mod authors have nothing to do with downloads, we can not affect how it works or does not work. Your issue is with Steam and/or Ark.

I cant join the discord and I agree with @rinobi that the path is confusing and I cant seem to find out how to set up the file cross save

@JustHnoss: First chapter in the documentation.

I'm probably completely blind as I've looked through the pinned posts without actually finding an answer.
I tried the mod on my server, no configs changed, and it would not let me save anything from Structures Plus, how do I make sure that the mod can copy a structure from another mod? I was looking at the "AdditionalPrimitiveMaterials" but I had no idea if that was the correct config option and now I'm completely lost in the configs.
