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. Forget, for a moment, Survival Evolved, this is Survival Plus!


Survival Plus is set in the middle ages and aims to increase the survival challenge significantly. Only a limited set of dinos can be tamed and some predators can only be killed in teams and with the highest tier of equipment and structures. Over 1000 (!) new items and over 500 new structures and structure pieces are available to assist you in your struggle.

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.

Make sure to check out the ingame guide (button at the bottom of the inventory screen) and our wiki at

Feature Overview:
  • 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. All Professions are enabled in single player!
  • Extended Survival Mechanisms: Sleep & Exhaustion, Extended Food & Nutrition, Alchemical poisons and buff items, and more challenging dino encounters.
  • Carts for players and dinos.
  • New unique taming methods: Wild dino nests & multi-phase taming!
  • Rebalanced Dinos and upgraded Dino AI: Wild Dino Hunger, Fear Mechanic, Corpse scavenging and more!
  • Dynamically spawning new resources like tin, copper, limestone and coal - map independent!
  • Prospecting and Quarry System for endgame resources.

  • Better farming with new crops, fertilizers and farming mechanics.
  • Extended crafting systems with more crafting stations, a new tool system and more.
  • Custom building system with construction sites and new free building parts.
  • A more balanced and less "grindy" experience on vanilla rates.
  • Upcoming: Tamed dino affinity system to forge deeper bonds with your pets.

  • 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.

@tao, alright.. I've tried deleting my mod, reinstalling. Verifying game files. They spawn on your server when I join but when I play solo there is no titanomyrma mounds anywhere.. I've been playing it on The Center on Tropic South where there is usually a ton of mounds.. but none. I even tried deleting my .inis and making redownloading the mod and the center with no other mods playing.. I can't figure it out. Without those I can't get copper to get bronze to get a sturdy ingot to progress into nearly anything.

There were no changes to mounds - make sure to stay in the area with the ants for a while (note that mounds do not spawn when you are too close to the ants).

So I'm trying this out again and I really like much of the changes.. however when I play singler player titanmyrma mounds are not spawning. I am seeing lots of ants spawning but no mounds near them.. tried this on a few maps and with no mods installed except this one on a fresh save. Did they disable the mounds or is there some known way to fix this? (I tried a dino wipe after I loaded as well)

@Mester_pvpDK Thatch is gained by allowing hand picked/harvested plant parts to dry out. They will do this over time as they have a spoil time and will spoil into Thatch. As a side note, you can gather a greater amount of Plant Parts with a Stone Knife equiped in your HotBar while in the Primitive stages of lvls 1-29.

@Eden You will need Cotton, a Spinning Wheel, and a Loom (not the primitive one). This will allow you to make the Cotton Fabric you will need for the Sail. The fabic is then placed on the Tailor's Work Table and you can then make the Sail.
