To maintain balance, we do not use a "Stack Mod". We have instead set custom stack sizes for each item and increased player and creature weight to achieve the same QOL feel and function but retain the balance.
Rate = 1X (Matches Official)
Thatch = 4 Days
Wood = 8 Days

*Note: Some lone/single unsnapped structures such as pillars and foundations decay at 40X the above rates. You can check your decay timers in-game with the "H" key.
Player Level Cap increased by 20 levels to accommodate for the difficulty of achieving Explorer Note/Rune Ascensions.
Common materials increased to 5000. Other items changed or unchanged based on balance & quality of life. For a complete list click here.
Max Tribe Logs = 1000 (Up From 100)
Matches Official Small Tribes
This allows for more versatile building and makes building possible in areas not possible on official.
Wild Ovis can still be found, killed, & harvested but cannot be tamed/bred due to an issue with their code that causes server lag when harvesting vast amounts via chainsaw.
Structures are locked by default.
Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction, Genesis, & Genesis 2 specific non-boss engrams are available on all maps. Due to bugs with Genesis & Genesis Part 2 missions which are required for Corrupted Master Controller & Rockwell Prime, their engrams are auto-unlocked at level 135.

*Weapons not listed match Official.
*Buffed weapons deal 50% damage to wild dinos and no increased damage to structures.
*Weapons that can damage OR torpor deal 1X to tames and wilds.
Note: Some of the damage changes may SOUND extreme, but are not when you take into consideration the damage done to good armor at 1X. As an example, a capped 298% Longneck Rifle does 12 damage to the body with good flak at 1X (and was thus useless/unused in pvp).
Titan & Titanosaur EHP/Damage = 3X
Mek EHP/Damage = 2X
Food Drain = Disabled (Titanosaur & Titans)
Feeding = Enabled (Titanosaur Only)
Lifespan After Download = 90 Minutes
The added structures and QOL improvements make this the most popular mod in Ark. The "OP" and exploitable engrams have been removed. Removed engrams are listed below. S+ Transmitter Dino Scan is enabled for all maps excluding Aberration, Genesis 1 & 2.
S+ Intake Without Water = Enabled
This ORP/PVP System helps maintain balance in all aspects of PVP. When ORP is active, structures and passive tames inside do not take damage, and turrets have infinite ammo. This works via a craftable item called "Maga ORP" and activates when your tribe logs off, and deactivates after logging on. Being recently engaged in PVP will cause a delay on ORP activation if your tribe logs off during the PVP cooldown timer. This plugin also governs other PVP functions such as transferring items and "popcorning" during the PVP cooldown timer. The system has a 50 foundation range. Limit 1 per tribe per map. Maximum duration is 3 days. More information is listed in our Discord.
New players automatically receive 7 days of structure protection.
Adds an improved spyglass alternative that provide stats and taming information as well as having some other useful features.
Players accumulate currency (1 every fifteen minutes and 10 when first joining) that can be spent on items in the in-game reward vault. The vault must be crafted to use.
This mod adds a gun that allows structure pickup.
This allows typically non-transferrable items such as element, artifacts, and tribute to be transferred between servers automatically when traveling to another server. You can also use "/upload" in chat at any obelisk or terminal to upload the items manually and they will be downloaded automatically when you transfer. Items in upload expire after 60 minutes.
Vote Rewards is a plugin that rewards players with in-game items for casting votes for our server at websites such as Ark-Servers.net. These votes improve our server rank and increase the chances of other players discovering Ark Forever. More info in the #vote-rewards channel in our Discord.
There are several other plugins that provide a wide range of QOL including Solo Farm (Use "/farm" in chat to enable/disable | Makes farming dinos auto-attack when carried or held), Balanced User-Only Damage Numbers (Use "/dn 1 on" In Game Chat To Enable), Mesh Detection, Dino Re-Coloring, Chat Help, Dupe & Exploit Prevention, Tribe Log Relay for Discord, and more!
