This is now the current Version as we've switched ownership of the mod so that it may be considered for sponsorship and everything is all under one developer instead of spread out.

GameUserSettings.INI Configs

Updated to work with Genesis 2 DLC!!!!!!


ARK Eternal
  • Updates can be viewed in the change notes tab.
  • Eternal sets Difficulty to 20, Meaning max wild dino level will be 600 if loaded first. Otherwise Set OverrideOfficialDifficulty=20 in GameUserSettings.ini. Mod is Balanced Around this!!!!.
  • Eternal is a WIP, meaning mechanics, items or dinos can change without warning.
  • Eternal is optimized, but does not require,Using Official Maps, first priority and PvE.
  • We developers listen to the community a lot. Join our discord for suggestions and bugreports.
  • This mod is in active development, meaning you can expect bugs which will be resolved over time based on received feedback.
  • Eternal updates around every 7-14 days, depending on workload.
  • Remember that this is something we do for fun. We dont get paid and have no obligations to anyone.
  • Eternal has added the spawn mechanics the Tek or event dinos use to spawn on any map now, so this means on top of Vanilla Remaps and Spawn on Death System our dinos will now spawn similar to how tek dinos spawn on the map
  • This means that as long as vanilla dinos spawn on a map our dinos will piggyback their spawns into the game as long as eternal is loaded first.
  • This also means that other mods like Primal Fear that use this mechanic for spawning will also be supported by ark eternal by default so that we do not block their spawns if loaded first.

Eternal is an overhaul mod that changes a lot of features from vanilla ARK. It adds 600+ new dinos at its current state, most of them can be tamed in different ways. Some of them can be evolved from creature A to creature B. Eternal has around 30 bosses so far, some rather easy and some almost impossible to kill. It adds more difficulty and diversity. And the best thing about Eternal, is that its WIP, meaning we still have alot of new features we are both thinking about and working on. We will not, however, release content and start with adding any more content until the previous content is working.

Eternal can be a Core Mod, meaning its designed for first priority in your load order. It is also designed with PvE in mind. If you want to use it on your PvP-server, you would have to do some serious tweaking. It is balanced for vanilla difficulty and levels.(OverrideOfficialDifficulty=20 in GUS.ini , in otherwords Max Dino level 600 wild) If you change that, your experience may differ from what Eternal is designed for. People have had success in running this mod second to mods like Pugnacia, Annuaki and Extinction. We do not encourage it though, as it could block some of Eternals content. It may work now, and then all of a sudden, when we do some changes, it may not. We do however try and design Eternal to work as a second overhaul mod.

hey, we are planning on trying server on the Lost Island with this mod. We wanted primal fear but that has currently spawn issues untill devs update devkit. So is this mod currently OK with Lost island? no creatures missing?

Also those having issues on Single player and Non-Dedicated servers, the Mod page says specifically NOT TO PLAY SINGLE PLAYER OR NON-DEDICATED with Eternal, THERE WILL BE BUGS AND OTHER GAME BREAKING ISSUES. You can use Ark Server manager and set up a LAN server and the mod will run perfectly. It is NOT set up for single player at all and it won't be. Any issue regarding Single Player or Non-Dedicated servers won't be answered since it says on the mod page in CAPS not to use the mod in those types of sessions.

Questions are not answered here because we don't regulate the traffic here. The discord has the FAQ and most of the questions ask here have ALREADY been answered in the discord.
