Auction House v1.5e

Mod ID: 898049820

This mod allows you to create, bid on, and buyout auctions for items, weapons, blueprints, skins, dinos, etc, from players on your server or players on other servers. Modded items and dinos are supported!

This mod is highly configurable. Cross-ARK functionality is enabled by default but can be disabled completely or restricted to only allow auctions from a group of servers that share the same Market ID.

There are also INI settings to allow custom currencies such as "Megapithecus Coins" (included in this mod but not enabled by default), Capitalism's "Glory Coins", or bananas?

Place an Auctioneer down in your world to browse the auction house. Place a Mailbox down to collect your winnings. Place a stockman and transporter down to buy or sell dinos.

For a comprehensive guide of all things related to this mod including rules, configuration options, upcoming changes, please refer to the wiki.

We have an automated system in place that logs all transactions and we WILL know if you cheat. Please keep in mind that cheating is not tolerated and will result in a ban. Bans are tied to your Steam ID and we really do mean it when we say that if we catch you cheating you will not be allowed to use the auction house.

"But Ghazlawl, what exactly defines 'cheating'?"

If you feel like what you're doing might be cheating then you're probably on the more questionable side of the line. Make good choices and always eat your vegetables! Also, read the rules on the official wiki.

Feel free to join our Discord server for installation help, trade requests, and to stay up-to-date regarding future updates!

Does this work with single-player?

Yes, because the auction house is connected to the global market even single-player games can create and browse auctions.

Can our server opt out of the global marketplace?

Yes, you can set a "Market ID" for your server. Servers that use a Market ID can only communicate with other servers that share the same Market ID.

Does this mod work on all maps?

Yes, this mod works with all maps. It is especially useful for getting Scorched Earth items (sand, sap, etc) and dinos on non-SE maps.

Can we use our own currency?

Yes! You can specify your own currency using the INI settings. A built-in currency has been bundled with the mod but isn't enabled by default called "Megapithecus Coins". To enable its use, use "PrimalItemResource_AuctionHouseCoin_C" as an "ExtraCurrency" INI setting.

Can I buy and sell dinosaurs?

Yes! The ability to buy and sell dinosaurs was added in the v1.5 update.

  • Currency Exchanger for converting resources to coins, etc.
  • "Closed" sign for knowing when the Auction House backend server is offline for maintenance.
  • Push notifications when auctions are bought or expire.
  • Self-building Auction House structure to help admins get set up quickly.
  • Mobile Auctioneer for buying and selling items on the go.
  • Web-based app?
  • COD (Cash on Delivery) payments.

This is Version 1 of the mod. Something like this has never been done before in ARK and there will be bugs. If you find a bug please report it in the Bug Reports thread and we will address it as soon as possible. We also value your feedback so please post your ideas in the Suggestions thread. We have a lot of ideas for this mod but we're always open to hearing your suggestions. :)

We will try to keep updates to a minimum as to not affect your gameplay but we will update the mod as needed if we need to fix a game-breaking bug.

Please keep the marketplace honest. If we catch you cheating, and there are systems in place to detect cheating, then we reserve the right to restrict your access to the auction house. Consider this an official warning.

  • RedDwarf for providing support on an almost daily basis.
  • RedDwarf, Jazzy, Cheese, Narkotix, and Osedax for helping test.
  • Everyone in the ARK Modding Discord for their ideas and continued support.

This mod took a lot of time and resources to create. Also, hosting costs ain't cheap! :) Like all of our mods, this one will be always free. All of your comments, ratings, favorites, sharing, and subscriptions help a lot! However, if you would still like to contribute even more, please feel free to donate.

Thank you for your support! ^_^

Hey everyone,

We had to release a hotfix (v1.5e) to fix custom currencies not working on private markets. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. There shouldn't be any more updates for the next week or so.

@abc @lustigelisa - Yep! It's been reported a few times. We've been working on it all day and I'm cooking a test now to make sure it's fixed before releasing an update.

@abc we have the same problems..
