The following server settings exist for “ARK: Survival Evolved”. You can either specify them in the command line you use to start the server like this
ShooterGameServer "[your normal server parameters]?ServerPVE=true"
Or alternatively, you can use the
force_install_path\ShooterGame\Saved\Config\WindowsServer\GameUserSettings.ini (from patch 171.0 onwards). That file contains the following section, in which you can set the option values.
[ServerSettings] DifficultyOffset=0.200000 GlobalVoiceChat=False ...
