Advanced Architecture Mod

This mod is now to be considered abandoned. I've had errors with the dev kit that even installing a new dev kit on a new pc with a re-install of windows hasn't fixed and I have yet to get anything resembling help from official channels. As this is now the third mod I've spent hundreds of hours on only to find myself unable to even open the mod I'm finally done with Ark and modding for it. Thank you all for your kind words and support and I hope you enjoy your time with this game. I will be leaving this mod and Urban Event Space up but all other works of mine have been removed from Steam.

mod id #: 539464369

I'm creating a new webpage to get all my info in one place that doesn't have the limitations that Steam discussions have. I'd really like to hear some feedback about what you guys think about the style and content! I'll be finishing the wiki and the blue tab soon and will be updating that page with new items each week. Thank you in advance for any advice/feedback you can give! (Steam is being a jerk and deleting all my wiki links so please copy and paste them but remember to remove the spaces. Sorry about the inconvenience!)

Server admins can now change the hitpoints, crafting material requirements of my structures and whether or not they can be picked up via ini variables. Please see the links below for more information!


After years of dedicated study at the Royal Academy, your Royal Engineer is finally ready to put his knowledge to work for you! This mod adds one new engram, the Royal Engineer's Workstation. The workstation unlocks at level 40 and comes with a complete set of blueprints for all included castle pieces. This mod now has the Portable Workstation that allows usage with engrams for a more organized crafting experience:)

Advanced Architecture Mod is designed as end game content for tribes. The material requirements of each piece are multiples of what their original Ark equivalent would cost but they are much more massive. One Castle Wall on top of a Castle Foundation will reach as high as a Thatch Foundation with five walls on top! If you're looking to play this alone or with a small group of friends, there is a Single Player version in the works that will have reduced materials costs and all engrams left in the list for easy admin building.

This mod also re-introduces an old concept; Its good to be the king, (or queen!). So trifling things like paying for choices have been left to the plebs. With your vast resources you can create collections of items instead of just one. I call this the Color Cycling System and the CCS works with several pieces in my mod. This system allows you to dynamically cycle through available materials until you find the one that best suits your castle's style.

There are currently over 130 new structures added to the game with this mod and they can all be crafted inside the Royal Engineer's Workstation, (which unlocks at level 40).
Castle Foundation
Straight and Curved Walls, (over 1 dozen total)
Multiple ceilings
Multiple Flooring options
Decorations - Braziers/Sconces
Basic Throne

Most structures can be dyed in this mod. The battlements had to be all or nothing so the wood and stone will both be dyed at the same time.

Please see these resources for more detailed information on the structures and for upcoming information:

这个mod现在被认为是废弃的。我在开发套件中遇到错误,甚至在重新安装Windows的新电脑上安装新的开发套件还没有修复,我还没有从官方渠道得到任何类似的帮助。因为现在这是第三个mod,我已经花了数百个小时才发现自己甚至无法打开mod我终于完成了Ark和modding for it。谢谢大家的客气话和支持,我希望你喜欢这个游戏的时间。我将离开这个mod和Urban Event Space,但我的所有其他作品都已从Steam中移除.........

Too bad that a stellar award winning mod is left in this state. I can only assume WC couldn't even bother to work with him to resolve the problem. Says a ton about WC.

Absolut geil, du kannst einfach eine Burg in Ark bauen ohne das du die kleinen Mauern einzeln platzieren musst.

No point in leaving an angry post to an abandoned mod of yours just because here is a bug you can't solve. Maybe consider releasing the files for this mod or just remove it all together. I know there are more than a few people who would gladly take over maintaining this mod with all credits to you. All bugs can be solved. Even the one you gave up on.
