ARK: Survival Evolved Patch 252.4 & 252.5


Fixes & Improvements

  • Dedicated Server: Temporarily rolled-back PhysX version to 3.3 in order to resolve Memory Leak. Recommend upgrading to this version until 252.5 is ready which will fix the leak Requires Server Update.
  • When run with ?DestroyUnconnectedWaterPipes=true or official servers always, after two days real-time the pipes will auto-destroy if unconnected to any non-pipe (directly or indirectly) and no allied player is nearby. (edited)
    (you don’t have to test that 😉 )
  • Spam-structure building is now rate-limited to help out slow servers.
  • 80% improvement to foundation testing calculation to reduce server stalls when building on slow servers.
  • Fixed a Moschops ambient harvesting crash
  • New GM Commands:
    • TakeAllStructure: gives your tribe all the structures of the team you’re currently looking at.
    • TakeAllDino: gives your tribe all the dinos of the team you’re currently looking at.
    • GMBuff: gives you god, infinite stats, AI ignorance, and a bunch of experience.
    • GMSummon: summons a tamed dino that isn’t cheat-tamed, so still requires a saddle.
  •  “OverrideOfficialDifficulty=5.0” can now be set in [ServerSettings] INI, not only via the launch commandline (“?OverrideOfficialDifficulty=5.0”)


  • Changed Item stack size limits to Beer Barrel: 3, Catapult: 1, Wind Turbine 1
