ARK: Survival Evolved Patch 273.0 & 273.11


  • Added the capability to “Lay On” Simple Bed and Modern Bed (2 people on Modern Bed). If you log out while laying on bed, you’ll remain in sleeping pose on the bed even when you log-out, and will stay on the bed even while it moves on a dynamic platform. (You can still be damaged and killed when on the bed).
  • Added the capability for another player to “Lock” handcuffed players to Seating Structures (including Chairs, Benches, Beds, etc). When locked to a structure, the handcuffed player will appear to have a cable connecting them to the structure, and be forced to sit on the structure. This state persists across logging out as well. Another player can also “Unlock” you from the Structure, or remove the handcuffs. Chairs within Cages are thus very useful for transportation of prisoners.
  • When handcuffed, Poop now is forced directly into Slot 1. Prisoners can consume it rapidly as it builds up to attempt suicide.
  • Fixed saving/loading of Lamp Post Light intensity value.


  • Can no longer attach floating structures when on a flying dino platform.
  • Dropping Inventory-deposit structures onto platform saddles now counts them against platform-tame limit.
  • Fixed some cases of Turrets not properly shooting players.
  • Fixed some cases where Beds were causing collision glitches.
  • Can no longer place Beds onto Pillars, was causing issues.
  • When a player is chained to a Seating Structure, fixed removing handcuffs through Inventory to properly unseat the player.
