Enabling Primitive+ Total Conversion Mod for ARK

Our ARK servers support Primitive+, the free, official total conversion DLC. Primitive+ enhances gameplay through new game mechanics and loads of custom primitive items.

Before enabling Primitive+, we recommend that you backup your server.

Modifying the Configs

  1. Ensure your server is stopped before proceeding.
  2. Edit your GameUserSettings.ini, set Active Mods to 111111111, and press save.
  3. Access your server’s FTP (Files > FTP File Access) and edit your ark.properties file. On the last line, add customStartupParameters=-TotalConversionMod=111111111 then press save.
  4. Start your server.

Upon starting, your server will install and activate Primitive+ as an active mod.
