Our Ark Servers

This is a friendly long-term game server for ARK Survival Evolved with the main maps The Island, Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction, Genesis, Genesis2 as well as the official mod maps Valguero, Lost Island and Fjordur. There is an indestructible Safebase Shield that can be obtained in the store once (except on Gen2). PVP is enabled on the maps, but we play mostly PVE with some open PVP settings and don't do wipes.

join Fjordur


The server is more PVE than PVP, because the respective main base is protected with an impenetrable shield (safebase) and we basically play PVE content. But all maps have PVP enabled! A friendly tone is the be-all and end-all. Play fair and behave correctly! NO Ganking, NO Grieding, NO Kiting & NO BULLSHITTING!

Furthermore the following rules apply


We primarily play PVE on PVP settings, that means shooting another player and looting is allowed, but with a certain amount of moderation. If you are looking for pure PVP you are definitely wrong here.
Raiding a base with a safebase shield is not possible or even allowed.
On the home map "The Island" it is forbidden to place turrets outside the safebase shield and to let aggressive animals stand around unaccompanied. On the other maps the "Building Rules" apply.
Home map and main bases

Home map and main bases

On the home map "The Island" a main base should be built. There the shield size is a bit bigger and the structure decay is massively delayed (the other maps are more for exploring, farming, killing bosses and building an outpost).
Additional main bases may be created on the other maps (number of main bases may not be higher than the number of active players +1 in the own tribe; i.e. a solo player may have another main base e.g. on "The Island" and on another map)
A main base (with safebase shield) must be built approximately out of sight/render range of another player and must not be bigger than the safebase shield itself (a counting cage outside the safebase is allowed)


One additional small outpost may be built per map. This outpost may not be used for breeding animals and the like.


In the cluster, a main base may be protected with a safebase shield.
The safebase may only be used to protect a base and may not be misused for other activities (temporary).
A safebase may not be placed in such a way as to block relevant PVE content (explorer notes, Gen1 missions, access to caves, etc.).
Building rules

Building rules

A maximum of 3 Stargates per Tribe may be placed on a map.
Reserving or plastering with Foundations and Pillars is generally not allowed.
Obelisks, caves with artifacts and Gen1 missions may not be built on or blocked in any way. Building in the passages at Genesis2 is forbidden.
Temporary buildings outside the base (e.g. a counting cage or a campfire) should also be dismantled when you don't need it anymore (exception is a counting cage right next to the safebase shield).
It is forbidden to build Glitches and Fjordur Runes on Explorer Notes or e.g. on Gen1.
Turrets are also not allowed to prevent access to PVE content like explorer notes, missions, spawn points, obelisks, etc....
Building on player spawn points should be avoided

Automation rules

We don't play ARK to build huge farms and bunker millions of resources. Therefore here are a few simple rules:

A maximum of 8 gachas are allowed on a map
10 snails are allowed for polymer and paste
75 beds for vegetables, berries, etc. are allowed (25 vanilla and 50 super strucutre)
Only one chainsaw may be used for one sheep per tribe at a time
Other restrictions are, 3x Cystal Cracker, 5x Item Collectors, 1x each Farmer, Gardner and Animal Tender.
Tethering to a "hitching post" of animals is generally not allowed (exception temporarily for raising an animal like a Gacha baby)


Harassment, insults and otherwise offensive behavior in the chat or in the name of players, items, dinos, tribes, etc.. is/are prohibited.
If you have any questions, please use the contact form or Discord!

For questions please consult the Contaktformular or Discord!


Basic settings are 3x harvest, 1.5x XP, 3x weight, 32x breeding, 4x taming and 1.5 imprint bonus. Meat & Co spoils about 2x less quickly and Gasoline lasts 2x longer in the generator. Turret damage on dinos is at 1.75 but the max of armor is at 496% (892 Durability), weapons at 496% and saddles at 223%. Bred dinos may have up to level 549. In addition, engram points are distributed slightly more so that all engrams could be learned in the later game.

Decay is set to 8x (e.g. wooden crates decay after 32 days, metal after 128 days), the home type care has a bit higher values here. Dinos are also released for claiming after 32 days. Offline proction is disabled on all maps.

All Configuration are available on GitHub.com.


From the server, Iceland is the home map and the official ARK maps (Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction, Genesis and Genesis 2) are made available. The DLC maps (Valguero and Fjordur) are also available. Temporarily, Crystal Isles and Ragnarok might also be unlocked.
