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 dino dossiers 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. Flyers are only allowed in the bunker, staging and the dome to help with immersion and to prevent event interference. Wild dinos cannot be tamed.

  • Main island:
    • Arena – Released
    • Colosseum – Released
    • The Ruins – Released
    • The Bunker – Released
    • Traders Bay – Released
    • The Dome – Released
    • Surrounding area – Released
  • Other features:
    • Small map size for better performance
    • Created to only require the base game and no DLCs
    • Includes most base resources in small quantity
    • Points of interest, hidden areas and dossier chests are scattered around the map

This map is officially hosted as part of the Astral ARK cluster and is where you can take part in each of the events that it has been designed for. You will find all of the information about the Astral ARK cluster here -

If you would like to learn more about the map and the events hosted there, please check out our interactive map:

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? Yes, however we will still perform minor edits and bug fixes.

- 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 the entrance.

@bchuites - I can see you managed to join our cluster, that's great! This workshop page is for our Astral ARK map however, so if you have any server-related problems, you can use the support bot on Discord instead, which will open a ticket with us.

@lizzard - You can join our own cluster via the join links on our website and if you need help join our discord.

The map however is available for anyone to host and use.

@edziakus Glad you like it :) I've not heard of any issues with ammo disappearing, the map name would need to be "AstralARK" minus the quotes. Also worth trying it with no other mods enabled as that can be a cause.

this map is amazing :-) and I will add it to my cluster for events.
I have a small question. When I change the map to Astral all bullets/arrows are dissapearing. Is this map setting?

@LucidLethargy Will ping you on discord to discuss about the PVP/PVE ask that you had. Would also be good to understand what structures don't work, as we would likely want to get that fixed.
