SurvivalPlus - Open Beta


A whole new take on ARK awaits you! Experience a more immersive Survival Feeling than ever before as you brave a new and more dangerous world on your journey from the Stone Age up into the Medieval Times. From the first minutes in this Total Conversion to your first castle siege you will find that this is no vanilla ARK experience - it feels like a whole new game!

We recommend playing on our official server!

This mod plays best with larger amounts of people. We encourage anyone looking to get the most out of it to join us on our official server.

The Basics:
Survival Plus aims to completely overhaul how ARK works, from your first minute to your last day.
  • Technology from the Stone Age to the late Middle Ages, but no high tech.
  • Professions: Over 1000 items are craftable and split up between multiple professions.
  • Custom building system with a completely new look (Feel free to request new features or designs!)
  • Extended Survival Mechanisms: Sleep & Exhaustion, Extended Food & Cooking, Custom Poison Weapons & more.
  • Custom RP Cooking - Dodo legs simmered in lemon juice with fried potatoes anyone?
  • Dynamically spawning new resources like tin, copper, limestone and coal.
  • Prospecting and Quarry System for endgame resources
  • Trading: Custom currency and Trading System.
  • Better farming with new crops, fertilizers and farming mechanics.
  • Extended crafting systems with more crafting stations, a new tool system and more.
  • New and changed taming mechanisms, but large dinos are not tameable to keep a survival feeling. Wild dino nests & unique taming methods!
  • A more balanced and less "grindy" experience on vanilla rates.
  • Carts for players ( )! Dino versions planned for the future.
  • Rebalanced Dinos and upgraded Dino AI
  • Upcoming: Extended tribe system with a criminal bounty system, territories and more.
  • Upcoming: Religion and "karma" against offline griefing.

Feedback, Balancing and new Features
We are always looking for feedback and ideas for new features!
One of our main concerns is the feeling of "grindyness", so if you find something that you think takes too long or is too annoying - please let us know!
We will do our best to replace this with a meaningful mechanic instead of just blind farming!
Our goal is to make x1 rates feel comfortable for community servers.

No still wont let me play this mod. Just keeps asking if I want to install BattleEye. Even ignores the "don't ask again" option on it. :(

Thanks, must be something on my end. I'll try the old unsubscribe/subscribe and see if that fixes things. Plus validate ARK of course.

Mods cannot interact with or in any way influence BattleEye.

I can play with other mods in single player but every time I try and start this mod in single player it closes Ark and asks if I want to load BattleEye. Only this mod does this.

Battleeye is a requirement for (some) servers. Has nothing to do with the mod.

I am trying to play in single player but part way through loading it exits and asks if I want to load BattleEye. Is it now a requirement? (I was playing a new Primitive+ while I waited for this to install.)
Tao  [author] Jul 11 @ 12:24am 
We do intend to add a handful more dinos as soon as some counterbalance systems are in place. Basically dinos will get a sort of permanent affinity meter that will counterbalance some of the dinos we deem slightly to strong currently, and in turn that will allow us to unlock a few more. This will affect creatures like the raptor, much larger than that is not planned however.

All that said, once we are feature complete we intend to spend a few weeks/months on making a lot more creatures available for taming based on a per-server config, but as that is quite a big task and outside our feature scope it will come last.

Hey,are there plans to make more dinos tameable in future ? I would personally like to see that,atelast as egg hatching as that would make some sense,maybe therizinosauruses wouldn't be so agressive to you if you raised them :P

@Busby You're going to have to provide more info. What spawn codes don't work? What can you not get out of your inventory?
Busby Jul 10 @ 10:22am 
Spawn codes don't work. And now I'm stuck with them permantly in my inventory, and the only way to get rid of it is to die.
Highly annoying.
