To maintain customizability and balance, we do not use a "Stack Mod". We have instead set our own stack sizes and increased player and creature weight to achieve the same QOL feel and function but retain the balance capabilities.

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.

Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction, & Genesis specific non-boss engrams are auto learned at the appropriate level on all maps. Due to bugs with Genesis missions which are required for Corrupted Master Controller, All Genesis-Specific Boss Engrams are auto-unlocked at level 135.
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.
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.
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.
Typically non-transferrable items such as element, artifacts, and tribute can now be transferred between servers by using "/upload" in chat at any obelisk or terminal.
New players automatically receive 7 days of structure protection.
This mod adds a gun that allows structure pickup.
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.
