Astral ARK Events Map

Welcome to Astral ARK
Mod ID: 2113917663
Map Name: AstralARK

This map was created by Astral Imperium for the Astral ARK cluster out of a need to have a small dedicated area for hosting events that could be run without impacting the rest of the servers. It was designed to have a Jurassic Park feel to it, with the main island being fully enclosed by cliffs and dense forests covering the interior.

Elevated walkways lead players around the map to the various event locations each of which has its own unique theme. There are also a number of trails that weave through the forest leading to various resources and fun areas to explore, players may even encounter some of the local wildlife or even locate some of the missing treasure hidden around the map!

Disclaimer: This map has been created for our ARK community, so all of the design choices and preferences are implemented with our events in mind. We are always happy to hear suggestions, but we will most likely consider more customizability later down the line once we feel the map is at a decent stage of completion for our needs. Flyers are only allowed in storage and staging to help with immersion and to prevent event interference. Wild dinos cannot be tamed.

If you want to follow the development of our map, please join our Discord server and assign yourself the correct role. We will post important updates and changes there primarily aimed at server owners.

- Is the map complete? No, but it is now at a playable level with the current available events. More content is planned.

- Can this be used publicly? Yes, we are happy for it to be used by anyone. The name of the map is AstralARK.

- How can I report a bug? The best way is to post a bug report in our #bug-reports channel on Discord[].

- I'm having trouble placing doors in the door frames on the map. To place a door in these frames, you must use "cheat givetome" on the frame, then you will be able to place the doors. This is the same for any other in-game structure that comes with the map, they need to be claimed if you wish to use them.

RED and ZenRowe for helping us get our first generation of teleporters to their final state and the ARK Modding community for answering all our questions and helping us build our knowledge of the DevKit. Evolanca for the amazing Sakura tree at our maps entrance.

To reference my previous comment, that was separate from the "givetome" command. There are structure items that simply won't place on the map, even if I disable all mods. This said, I've found workarounds for them, and I didn't want to bother anyone for a free map!

On a related note, is it possible to create "PVP" areas of this map, while keeping most of the map PVE? I've struggled to find a plugin (API), or a mod to support this. I was wondering how you all dealt with that!

@TeNcHuUu The items should stay within bunker room structures, but all structures in the houses should be claimed except the terminal. We have it setup this way for our cluster and items remain after reboots.

If your able to join our discord we can discuss it further and troubleshoot what maybe happening.

Hello, is it normal for items left inside bunker room structures to disappear with automatic resets? I have claimed them from my tribe, being the admin the frames and I have put doors, but the structures of the rooms not, and each item that is left, at night with the restarts they disappear.
I have done another test, I also claimed two wooden cabinets in a room, and with the reboots the items also disappear even though it is already from my tribe, another test was to demolish those cabinets, and put some of the wooden SS mod too, and surprise her mine, that with the reboots, the cabinets superimposed on mine appear again. Is this normal?

@LucidLethargy If your able to jump on our discord (link above) and PM AstralSupport or talk in the modding channel then we can troubleshoot.

If it's relating to the Tek door frames that have been placed in various areas, these need to be claimed with cheat givetome. Then you can place a door in the frame.

There's a strange bug where you can't place certain structures on this map. Most notably, you can't place Tek double doorways, or more importantly, Tek double doors.

I just wanted to pay my respects because this is one of the most amazing maps I've ever encountered. I run a small community server, and they are going to LOVE it. Seriously, though, thank you for allowing this to be used by anyone.

Increible y espectacular el mapa. Hoy mismo lo he incluido en mi cluster para usarlo de eventos y mercado con zona segura. Muchisimas posibilidades. Espero que pronto pongan la automatizacion de la arena libre para todo el mundo, seria increible. Gracias por el mapa.

Ok, too bad. If there was a spawn location, that would have helped a lot. Then I have to look with Simpelspawner or something.
