Our Server Rules

Our ultimate goal is to build a private community of like minded and friendly ARK players.

These are guidelines to adhere to when playing on our servers. For anything you're unsure of please use your best judgement, or reach out to @TheKewee / @Admin on discord if you have concerns or questions.

Failure to abide by these rules can result in the admin removal of your structures/items/tames, or your account being banned.

Any action taken is at the sole discretion of the admins.

Conduct Rules

We are a family friendly private community - think of others in the community

  • those that want to cause trouble ..please go play somewhere else
  • please use common sense and think of others. Just cause we didn't list it doesn't mean you can do it!
  • no bad language, cursing, racism, or hate speech in voice or chat
  • no offensive character/tribe/tame names, or signs
  • no PvE stealing/looting
  • help others without affecting their progression or sense of achievement
  • online multiplayer games thrive with community spirit, and are more fun with others
    ..so please don't ruin your experience by driving others away!

    Structure Rules

    We build minimal and think about how our structures will impact others

  • your main base area must be appropriate for your tribe size/need, and will not impact others
  • outposts should be minimal, be actively used, and not impact others
  • traps and temporary structures are to be removed immediately after use
  • SAP/Oil/Gas collectors are to be unlocked for all to use
  • no foundation or pillar spawn blocking
  • no building should block explorer notes, access to caves, or high resource areas
  • community structures must be agreed with admins before construction
  • completely empty beaver dams

  • Tame Rules

    We keep only the dinos we need out and think about how our dinos will impact others

  • do not leave tames in breeding or wandering modes when offline
  • do not use flyers in artifact caves
  • cryo dinos not being actively used when possible
  • do not unclaim or abandon unwanted dinos

  • Admin Support

    Support is best effort

  • admins play the game too, and will make best effort to help when you are ARK'd
  • please respect any admin decision or request
  • contact @TheKewee or @admins on discord for urgent player support
  • use our Report Structures/Dinos Form to report anything requiring admin attention


    cheating, griefing, and intentionally using bug exploits will lead to a permanent ban across all servers.

  • punishment is up to the discretion of the admin

  • some examples:


  • Dragging another player not in your tribe while they're offline
  • Intentionally using wild creatures to destroy a player's assets/tames when not in a tribe war.
  • Structure Spamming - placing structures down for the purpose of disrupting others gameplay
  • Leaving tames inside of caves or on obelisk teleportation platforms
  • Intentionally filling the server tame limit via spamming tames or rafts
  • Blocking access to important resources (ie. charge nodes, gas nodes, Extinction City Terminals, etc)
  • Obstructing pathways or waterways for the purpose of denying another tribe access
  • Blocking access in/out of a tribes base
  • Blocking in other tribes dinos
  • “A griefer is a player in a multiplayer video game who deliberately irritates and angers other players within the game, often using aspects of the game in unintended ways.”

  • using third-party programs such as in-game automated bots, ESP, Aimbots, and Game Engine Modifications.

  • Exploiting

  • Attacking from, travelling through, or building in unintended game-zones (under the mesh etc)
  • Duplication of tames, items, or characters
  • Unintended building mechanics (such as floating structures, using the world barrier as a snap point)
  • Building a box on a platform saddled dino to completely prevent it from taking damage
  • Modifying your game files to remove key graphical components (water, fog, etc)
  • Attacking or blocking players through the terrain with dinosaurs
  • Intentionally crashing users or servers (through DDoS or otherwise)
  • Placing excessive quantities of C4 to prevent hostile C4 from being placed
  • Stacking multiple creatures inside each other's models via raising babies close together, teleporting them near each other, downloading them, etc (ex: multiple brontos in a 1X1 foundation area)
  • Floating structures or structures that extend past normal building limits on platform saddles or rafts for PVP purposes
