[Deprecated] SurvivalPlus - Open Beta

This mod is no longer in active development and will not work fully with recent ARK patches. Join for a spiritual successor.

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.
  • Trading: Currency and Trading System for items, structures and creatures with support for secure and offline trading.
  • Custom RP Cooking - Meals get different names & provide different nutrients based on contents.
  • 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: 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.

Well one of the devs dissapeared, the other decided to make a new mod, but from the ground up.

Me too, Crazy Raven. I am just so sad that this has happened. Maybe Survival Plus will become Ark 2 someday. We can only hope.

ich hoffe es mal jus61... ich hoffe so inständig, dass die programmierer nur etwas warten, bis das ganze gepatche durch ist, um dann die version anzupassen... ich konnte 3-4 tage spielen, nachdem ich die mod gefunden habe, bis das update kam ._.

Can't play this mod. Every time i enter my single player world my game craches.

I am looking for a mod that I can use on a server that we would like to run a more primitive environment. The server would be linked into a cluster. So what I am looking for is one that would lock out the engrams for beyond the medieval times and rid the world of dinos. I would like to use it in conjunction with the Known World map.

@Galletiita If the below doesn't work do the same to your client computer

@Galletiita When ever you get a file mismatch as you state below, go to the mods file in your server and get rid of the following folders and files... find the number of the mod and go to the mods file in your games folder. inside you will find a list of the mods installed... Find the folder of the mod you are having the trouble with and delete... then scroll down and find the text file with the same number and delete that also. The go to your SteamCmd file which is most likely in a different location and inside open the steamapp folder. inside of that you will see a folder that says common and inside of that find the file with the same number as the game you are playing ARK is 346110 inside you will find a file with the mod you are trying to fix. Delete that file and then down load your new version of the mod or clean install. Some people say to restart your comp between the delete and the reinstall but that is up to you... Hope this helps....
