ARK: Survival Evolved (Generic) Added

ARK: Survival Evolved (Generic)

This will be available as part of today’s AMP update!

Link: ARK: Survival Evolved on Steam

Stranded on the shores of a mysterious island, you must learn to survive. Use your cunning to kill or tame the primeval creatures roaming the land, and encounter other players to survive, dominate… and escape!


@Greelan has put a TON of work into making this template and it is by far an upgrade from the existing module. He did not skip any details. Here’s what is included:

  • HUGE amount of settings added to the GUI
  • Download mods automatically with no need to edit the config files
  • Easier clustering with a dedicated menu tab
  • Many improved GUI options - Easy map selector (No need to remember the weird map names!)
  • Default backup exclusions (1.5GB vs 28GB per backup) :wink:

Greelan has also made an easy to use guide:

Awesome, good news and good timing since i just set up an ARK-server for the first time some days ago for my friends.

A couple of questions:
1: How do i update? I’ve updated AMP and the ARK-instance, but i cant see more settings etc. Do i have to create a new instance and choose the new ARK Template? If so, how can i migrate settings/map/saves/etc from the old ARK-instance to the new one?

2: In MineCraft and other games i’m able to trigger schedueles in AMP based on a lot of things, like Player joins/leaves. Will this be possible in the new template? That might be one of the reasons for me to upgrade.

Thanks again for the great work you’ve done!
