How to Increase Engram Points Per Level on your ARK Server

Engram points, which can be earned by levelling up your survivor, are used to permanently unlock crafting recipes for your character in ARK: Survival Evolved.

In Multiplayer, a survivor cannot earn enough Engram points (in 155 levels) to unlock every crafting recipe, therefore it may be beneficial for a server owner to increase the amount of Engram points a player earns each level.

Increasing Engram Points

You can override the Engram Points earned for each level by editing your server's Game.ini file, but you must do this for each level.

  1. Access your control panel and Stop your server.
  2. Navigate to Files > Config Files.
  3. Click Game.ini.
  4. If your Game.ini is empty, enter [/script/shootergame.shootergamemode] at the top of the file.
  5. For each level starting from level 1, you must enter a new line with the following code - OverridePlayerLevelEngramPoints=<points>.

    Points are the number of Engram points that a player will earn for that level. From the example, level 1 will give 10 engram points, level 2 will give 100, and level 3 will give 2.
  6. Save and Start your server.
