hi, the mod doesn't start operating until you connect to a server, so before you do that it's up to steam/ARK to properly load your mods and install them, so unfortunately i cannot help with your issue :(

mod works great! Good job WETBATMAN. P.S. ignore the trolls below. They are just mad because their shenanigans are prevented with this plugin/mod combo now.

your IP is never stored, it's only ran through a region lock/anti VPN check (if server admins have this option enabled) so yes

Does it comply with UK & EU GDPR rules?

your computer HWID is obtained and hashed via sha128 to anonymize it, after which it's sent to the server from the client via a mod event.

by "the server" I mean the server you're connecting to, not some mysterious server box I own

What data is being transmitted and where is it being transmitted to?

You Have to purchase a license to and set up the plugin required by this mod before attempting to use it!

I did.

1.the sole purpose of the mod is data transmission, it always does this regardless of whether you bought it or not, the mod is not tasked with absolutely anything else, that's it
