Welcome to the new Modular Automated Ark 3.0

The mod has been broken up into 1 CORE mod that is required to be installed and 7 optional Add-on mods. If you are switching from the older version of AA then all you need to do is shut down your server, uninstall AA2.781, then install this version and all add-on mods that you wish, and restart your server. Everything will stay the same in game, and all ini options stay the same as well. It's as easy as that to switch. I do recommend making a backup of your save just in case it doesn't update correctly.

AA3.0 is made to take some of the more mundane tasks in Ark and make them enjoyable so you can jump straight into the fun stuff. AA3.0 will not play the game for you, like some mods, but rather make the game more fun for you. With this new modular design I can now release some more "OP" mods and some decorative mods as their own add-on mods without bloating the base mod with stuff that may need to be disabled on pvp servers. This new design also allows me to iterate new items faster and with smaller update sizes.

For live mod support check and see if I'm live at and jump in to ask questions.

If you're looking for the server host with the best value for your dollar is They host Ark: Survival Evolved, Rust, and 7 Days to Die with hosting for Minecraft coming soon! With one click mod installs, Event Scheduling, GUI based settings, and Automatic Mod Updating its a set it and forget solution to server management!

please please please can you create dedicated storage for this mod, as we have a sorter but vaults are perfect in the start later game we move to dedicated, S+ dedicated suck coz it cannot handle all the resources class works for all but we dont have a quick way to auto sort from AA console to dedicate storage.

Mackrealiv Try using the AA oil Barrel and Compost bin. to collect oil from beetles. Also try loading a past save you might loose a day of game time but you will have your dinos back.

I placed the AA:: Control Console from this mod then it went nuts immediately emptying EVERY storage I have, to include my Cryofridge of E V E R Y T H I N G!!! I was able to find my resources, food, seeds, and blueprints, but all my healing items, situational gear, boss spawn items, and most painfully...ALL OF MY CRYOPODS (especially my cryo-ed Dinos) ARE GONE!!!! No WHERE!!!
The refrigerated Feeding Trough is cool, but all of my cryopods and cryoed dinos being gone really hurts, a lot.

If you instill this mod, whatever you do, DO NOT EVER EVEN CRAFT the AA:: Control Console, it will ruin your game, day, week, month...

Seems like a really cool mod that I wish I'd found before building my main base around similar structures from other mods, but running into one speed bump:
Is there a way to use one of the structures in this mod to pull oil from Dung Beetles? I've read through the pinned post in Discussions and tried playing with the settings in the OCD Vault and Control Console, but can't seem to figure out how to grab the oil from them (I also haven't had any coffee yet today, so entirely possible I'm just being stupid.)

If i have the original AA mod and want to replace it with this one. Will all of my original AA crafting stations and boxes be wiped out? Or can i stack the two mods?
Thief_Garett Jan 26 @ 10:24pm 
Can't find an answer so i'[ll ask. Is there a way to put items, like the ocd vaults down on the ground, not on foundations? Fjordur have many in game buildings and adding foundations look weird.

just added the core and a few add ons to my server but i dont have the console or the AA work bench anywhere in my engrams so i cant make anything?

Would HG stacking mods cause the med station not to recognize healing brews? Running an Ab server and med station won't work at all

I am running a Primal Fear Server for my friends. we are also using the Automated Ark, (AA Automation) , the AA: Terminal crashes the game whenever it tries to do an Auto Sort. I have figured it is the Blood items. the AA Mod doesn't recognize the Blood. any ideas on correcting this?

cant you put them all in to 1 mod this takes a lot off server lode time to put them all in
