Auction House v3.1.2

Mod ID: 898049820

Please read the rules:

WARNING: It has been brought to our attention that there is a conflict with the Pugnacia mod. We are currently investigating.

Auction House

This mod allows you to create, bid on, and purchase 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" (copper, silver, gold, and platinum; included in this mod but not enabled by default) or Capitalism's "Glory Coins".

Place an auctioneer down in your world to browse for items, place a mailbox down to collect your winnings, or place a stockman and transporter down to buy and 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 automated systems 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. We really 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 cheating. Make good choices and always eat your vegetables! Also, read the rules on the official wiki before using the Auction House.


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

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Your Market ID should be kept confidential. Please do not share your Market ID on this page, Discord, or any other platform.

Does this mod work on all maps?

Yes, this mod works with all maps. It is especially useful for purchasing Scorched Earth and Aberration items and dinos (Sand, Bulbdogs, etc) and dinos on maps that don't natively spawn them.

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" (Copper, Silver, Gold, Platinum). To enable them, use "PrimalItemResource_AuctionHouseCoin_C" (for old coins) or "_Copper_C", "_Silver_C", etc as an "ExtraCurrency" INI setting. Please check the Wiki for examples.

Can I buy and sell dinosaurs?!

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

Upcoming Features

The complete list of upcoming features can be found in the "Roadmap" section of the wiki.


This is Version 2 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 game-breaking bugs or implement new features.

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

Hey, im working on the Exchanger for our private server. I'm now wondering if it is possible to offer saddles or bp with increased armor (because we dont have them spawning on rag ) ? Thanks :)

but look the mod is awesome the dummy dont know it but im his biggest fan if you are into raiseing breeding and saleing there no other mod that can compete with this one. i dont care ifi am banned i would recommend this mod to anyone wanting to trade there is no other way that is any easier than this mod
Diesel May 25 @ 5:30pm 
you can see from the comments below it was not cheating that got me banned asking to be treated right was what got me banned
Diesel May 25 @ 5:28pm 
no i did not get caught cheating he bann me for saying he could be nicer to people i only ask one question and was jumped over it
I have only ever had good interactions with this mod creator @Diesel both on steam and his discord, very helpful not once have i seen any rudeness. Judging by your comments here on steam you got caught cheating.
Diesel May 21 @ 7:06am 
My bad behavior was basically telling the man he could be a little nicer when he talks to people. his exact words is i owe you nothing and he is wrong he owes people the same respect they show him. I am banned for personal reason not a real reason like cheating. this mod maker has issues he talks to you like you crap then get upset when you defend yourself. This would be a great mod if it was made by some one that actually care about the people who use it.

That would require setting a private market

Can i make it where it only shows the dinos listed on my server? If so, please tell me how.

A+ for the update! :)

If you mean the monkey, then it's alright.

Per the latest patch notes:
Temporarily changed monkeys to ghosts until we can fix their meshes, animations, and sounds.
