PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ ALL THE SERVER RULES, THE ARK SURVIVAL UK SERVER RULES ARE VITAL TO THE SMOOTH RUNNING OF OUR ARK AND WILL BE ENFORCED BY ACTIVE ADMIN.
1.) You can build anywhere on the Ark map as long as you’re not preventing rare resource spawns (high value metal nodes, silica, oil) and anything blocked (such as a cave) must be given access via a door or gate for both other survivors and their dinos. Please set the code to 0000 or just leave unlocked. Anything found blocking entry or resources without a code will be demolished by admin with no warning!
2.) The volcano is an important source of metal, obsidian and crystal for a lot of Ark’ers so the top of the volcano is totally off limits. We will create a public forge just outside of the volcano peak (just follow the path) that everyone is welcome to use but we do ask you to keep an eye on your ingots! Dinos with foundations on platforms will also stop spawns so please park any dinos outside of the dense spawn areas on the parking provided (again just follow the path down).
3.) No griefing.. goes without saying. Anyone found griefing will be banned and have their Steam ID blacklisted from all Ark official and private servers. If you experience any behaviour along these lines please screenshot and send to admin via our server support form.
4.) No hacks, cheats or exploits of any kind. We monitor constantly, consider this your warning.
5.) Do not build foundations just for the purpose of blocking area’s for people to build in (i.e. single foundations all over because you don’t want anyone to build close to you). Foundations or pillars must be in close proximity to your base structures (within 20 tiles). If you have a foundation built and you have not constructed a proper base within 48 hours, an admin may delete your foundations as his (or her) discretion. Any pillar/foundation spamming will not be tolerated and will be demolished on sight, any repeat of this will result in your base being removed.
Keep your distance
6.) When building your base try and keep a distance from other bases, this avoids the need to cling on to space by throwing up walls and keeps things feeling a bit more wild. Bases close together can also make things in that area laggy.
7) It’s fine to keep your new dino safe while taming, but it ruins the environment if you leave the remains of the taming pen walls scattered around the map. So please clean up after and keep the map looking nice for everyone.
8) Our admin are happy to help wherever we can, please do bear in mind we are just regular (unpaid) gamers like you so any time we take out to help is play time we put on hold. Priority will be given to those that vote and/or donate to the server. We will assist with any server specific issues (such as mod items not placing, or losses due to a server crash, both of which are extremely rare), please ensure you get screenshots where possible of the issue. Any building errors by yourself or errors that come from the Ark mechanics (bad placement etc) are considered part of the Ark learning curve and you will be strongly encouraged to fix yourself.
9) Our Ark is designed to be a fun place to survive, if you need advice we’re always happy to help. We won’t give out dinos to newcomers but assistance and advice is always there, so come and enjoy our Ark and we can be your guides (should you need them!). You can register for our Ark here.
