ARK: Survival Evolved is one of the most popular action/adventure games that can be played on Steam. The game is set in an ancient world with dinosaurs. The player’s main objective is to survive for as long as he can.
Players are allowed to play this game through both a first-person as well as a third-person perspective. In this game, players have the ability to use firearms as well as other different equipment made through crafting in order to defend themselves. Overall, it is a generally well-received game on Steam.
How To Fix ARK Server Manager Mod Details Could Not Be Retrieved From Steam?
ARK Server manager mod is a popular mod application that many players use in order to install mods on the game. Unfortunately, many users have been complaining about the server manage mod not working as intended.
On further inspection, we found out that these users are getting the error “ARK server manager mod could not be retrieved from Steam”. If you are also facing a similar error, then you don’t have to worry. We will be listing all the possible solutions to this problem using the article. All of the solutions can be found below:
- Use Your Own Web API Key
Most usually, this error occurs when the user has reached his daily data limit. This problem arises because ARK Server Manager uses the Steam Web API key where it has a daily use limit.
However, you can fix this by getting your very own Web API key. Using Steam, you can easily create your own Web API key. Start by opening Settings on your Ark Server Manager. Here, simply click on get your own API key. Afterward, follow the screen to get the API key.
- Reinstall ARK Server Manager
If the previous step does not work, then there is most definitely something with either the ARK Server Manager itself or any mod that you have installed. In either case, we suggest you do a complete reinstall of the Server Manager.
Ensure that you do install the latest version of the program. Also, you will need to install the application directly from the official site.
- Reinstall Game
Another thing that can help you fix the problem is to do a fresh start. In order to do this, you will first have to remove all of the mods that you may have installed on your desktop. Afterward, do a full reinstall of the game. After you are done, the issue should be fixed.
The Bottom Line
These are the 3 different ways on how you can fix ARK Server Manager mod details that could not be retrieved from Steam. Ensure that you follow all of the steps that have been mentioned in the article.
I’m getting daily reports that the server manager tool doesn’t list my Live version mod, and only lists the Test version mod, along with random comments about manual installing not working, can’t download the mods from steam…
Freya 17 Aug @ 2:32pm
Server Management Tool is the new one released with the new v200 patches. Mods cant work with manual install so I had to use that tool. But searching the mods listing inside it only shows Aku Shima Test, not this one.
Freya 17 Aug @ 9:12am
Did Ark blacklist this mod or something? I can’t find it in the server management tool mod search.
ClipZ 16 Aug @ 3:46pm
btw after a full day of testing all mods work on there current versions no need to update to latest dev kit they have changed the way mods are read on the server just regular mod folders will no longer work instead of typing a huge paragraph lets just easier to say just use the new server management tool although it can be done without it just its easier to explain it that way lol
z` has ARK: Survival Evolved 4 hours ago
Do you intend to update this mod so it is playable on the latest servers? Also do you plan to integrate with the ‘official’ server manager beyond your “Aku Shima Test”?
These are just a few of the comments I’m getting about the Server Manager Tool, I don’t know how it’s list populates, I’ve never even used it I do everything manually on the 2 servers I’m running Windows && Linux, so I haven’t seen first hand if you are manually populating the list or getting a list from steam, but I’d like to point out that the Test version is only public to allow people to connect that server, people will use the Live in their own servers and some aren’t tech savvy enough to do it without the Server Manager Tool.
Can I get some feedback on the situation to tell the subscribers and future subscribers about? I’ve had a large portion of people come and tell me they saw the mod on Twitch or Youtube and want to get it, they love the glass/reinforced wood and bought the game after seeing a streamer play it for a few hours but can’t get the mod.

What it does
- Manages the SteamCMD tool and Server installations/updates
- Organizes settings and writes INI files and command-line arguments automatically
- Tracks server status and allows direct control of server state
- Save and load server profiles - even import directly from an existing server deployment.
- Scheduled updates server files and mods
- Works with Survival of the fittest
What does it not do
- Configure third-party firewall products - it will configure Windows Firewall automatically however
- Open or redirect ports in your router
We cannot stress enough that you must have some slight tech knowledge as it will require you to access your modem/router and forward the proper ports, as well as possibly adding entries to your firewall and/or anti-virus software.

Basic How To Center [arkservermanager.freeforums.net]
- You know your router/modem make & model. (You can find this ON your router/modem)
- You have access to your router/modem control panel. (Username & Password)
- You understand basic file & folder structures.
- You have the latest .NET Framework (4.5 or above)
- You have a Windows OS.
- You know how to click things and/or type.
If you have answered yes to all of the above, you're ready to move on and setup your server.
If your machine has a *direct* connection to the internet (for example it is wired directly into the modem), you probably don't need to do this. If however you are plugged into a router (for example to provide WiFi to your location), then you probably do need to do this. If your machine has an ipaddress that looks like 192.168.x.x, this section probably applies to you.
First, if you do not understand or know how to port forward, then head to Port Forward[portforward.com] and look up your modem/router, after clicking it you will probably see a page with an ad on it about buying a program, just press the "Close [x]" in the top right, then you will select the make of your modem/router, and finally you will select a game/program. Now ARK will probably not be on the list, so choosing a game and just replacing the port numbers are perfectly fine.
IMPORTANT: If you are running a virtual network program like Hamachi or Virtual Box or another VPN program, you probably need to set the MultiHome IP address. See below for more details.
Second, the ports you will need to forward are below.
- Server Port in the tool/manager (Default is 27015) in the UDP Protocol or TCP/UDP if available.
- Port 7777 in the UDP or TCP/UDP Protocol if available.
Here's an example from a popular router:
The ARK Server Manager communicates with Steam on port 27011. This port must be open for it to be able to determine whether your server is publicly available.
The ARK Server communicates on the two ports you configure, which by default ate 7777 and 27015 as above. If you are using a third-party firewall, you may have to open these ports (both TCP and UDP) manually. If you are using Windows Firewall, the ARK Server Manager can manage your firewall settings for you.
If you are running a Hamachi, Virtual Box or other VPN-style network, your machine will be on several networks at once. Only one of those networks will actually be visible to the outside world. You will have to determine which local IP address routes to the public internet (typically a 192.168.* one), and enter that in the MultiHome IP box before you start the server.
Ark Server Manager
When the application starts, it will first get or update the SteamCMD tool which is used to install and update the Ark: Survival Evolved binaries directly from Steam. Once it is finished, you will be presented with a screen and a default server profile.
- A random password is generated by default - change these in the Administration section.
- Set your server name to something other than the default, please :)
- If you don't already have a server, set the Install Directory to where you would like the game installed. Then click 'Install' - this may take a while depending on your network.
- If you already have a server, click the 'Load' button, and find the GameUserSettings.ini file. For example: G:\Steam\SteamApps\common\ARK\ShooterGame\Saved\Config\WindowsServer\GameUserSettings.ini. The tool will set the Install Directory for you. You may then click 'Upgrade' if you wish to upgrade.
- Click 'Start'. Your server will start up. Note that servers may take several minutes to initialize, especially the first time.
Ark Dedicated Server Tool (Legacy)
Instructions on how to setup everything will be within the Tool itself, however, there are 2 different setup options that we shall now explain.
- Default Setup is mostly for inexperienced users who just want to have a nice and simple installation without messing with folders or anything of the sort. It will create all of the directories that it needs beside the Tool.
- Advanced Setup is for more experienced users or users wishing to select an already created server, it will allow you to select the folder that has your server files, or a folder that you want your server files to be in.
Should the Ark Server Manager crash for some reason, it will pop up a dialog explaining the situation and show you a crash log file. Please paste the contents of this file into http://pastebin.com and then post the link here so we can take a look. If further information is necessary, we may ask for the dump file, which has the same name as the log file except with .dmp appended. This file contains a detailed dump of the process at the moment is crashed, but if we need it we will ask you for it specifically.
- You didn't wait long enough, especially the first time. It may take several minutes (in one person's case it took over an hour because their server was heavily overloaded). But if it doesn't show up after 5 to 10 minutes, you probably have another issue...
- Your firewall and/or router ports are not set correctly. Read the Installation and Troubleshooting section above. Ensure your ports are all correctly configured. Ensure your ports are set correctly in the Manager as well. The Server Port usually is 7777, the Query Port is usually 27015. Make sure your firewall wasn't accidentally set to *block* the ShooterGameServer.exe application as well.
- Your MultiHome IP is set when it shouldn't be, or set incorrectly. See the MultiHome Computer section in the Installation and Troubleshooting section of the guide for more information. This has been causing several people trouble because Ark doesn't always bind to the right address by default.
If after checking all those things your server still doesn't show up, ask one of us - we may be able to review your settings using TeamViewer and figure out the problem.
If you have any other problems/questions/queries etc, then head over to the ASM forums. They are highly monitored with knowledgable and helpful people.

Please help improve this if you can. The talk page may contain suggestions.
This page discusses the installation and configuration of a dedicated ARK server.
For scripts that you can run on your own dedicated server, see Dedicated server scripts.
Your OS must be a 64-bit OS (ShooterGameServer is a 64-bit executable and as such will not run on a 32-bit install of Ubuntu or Windows). The server has been tested on Ubuntu 14.04 and should also support any Windows host where the prerequisites found in can be installed.
The server requires at least 6GB of RAM to start. Memory requirements increase as the number of connected players increases. This is also dependant on your settings/mods and configurable options. Some mods increase RAM more than others. On Windows Server 2012 R2, the server uses 2.3GB of RAM without any clients. On Linux, the installation uses 3.2GB of RAM without any clients.
The server listens for incoming connections on the ports listed below. Ensure your network configuration allows incoming connections to these ports and directs them to the host that will be running your dedicated server.
|UDP 27015||Query port for Steam's server browser|
|UDP 7777||Game client port|
|UDP 7778||Raw UDP socket port (always Game client port +1)|
|TCP 27020||RCON for remote console server access (optional)|
You can host multiple dedicated servers on the same host, however be aware that CPU and memory should be monitored carefully if they are busy servers rather than test servers. For example:
|Server instance||Game port||Raw UDP port||Query port||RCON port|
|Server game instance 1||7777||7778||27015||27020|
|Server game instance 2||7779||7780||27016||27021|
|Server game instance 3||7781||7782||27017||27022|
|Server game instance 4|
completely different ports
- Note: Query Port cannot be between 27020 and 27050 due to Steam using those ports.
Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable (can be found in the Steam Ark game folder under _CommonRedist/vcredist/folder).
DirectX (DXSETUP, can be found in the Steam Ark game folder under _CommonRedist/DirectX/June2010/ folder).
64bit Linux servers will require 32 bit binaries to install/run steamcmd.sudo apt-get install lib32gcc1
The game server requires glibc 2.14 or greater. Ubuntu 14.04 (and newer) and Debian 8 (Jessie) satisfy this requirement automatically, but older versions, such as Debian 7 (Wheezy), do not. To install the required version of glibc on a Debian 7 (Wheezy) host:
- Add the following lines to : # Experimental/unstable (sid) repositories deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian sid main
- To update the host's available packages list and install the updated glibc library package, run the following commands via sudo or a root shell: apt-get update apt-get -t experimental install libc6-dev
- Note: This procedure does not upgrade the host to Debian Unstable (sid); only glibc itself and any packages it depends upon are updated.
For other older distributions that don't include glibc 2.14 or newer, refer to the distribution's documentation and support forums for guidance.
Open Files Limit
- Note:This section doesn't apply if you'll be using systemd to launch the dedicated server (as described below in #Automatic Startup), as it can set this limit at runtime.
To ensure that the host's open files limit is high enough to support the game server:
- Add the following lines to : fs.file-max=100000
then run the following command via sudo or a root shell to apply the change:$ sysctl -p /etc/sysctl.conf
- Add the following lines to : * soft nofile 1000000 * hard nofile 1000000
- Add the following line to : session required pam_limits.so
- Warning: Without these changes, the game server may not successfully launch. If the server appears to start, but uses a high amount of CPU time without using at least 5.5GB of RAM, it hasn't been able to open all the files it needs and the above change should be applied.
Tuned is a daemon that monitors the use of system components and dynamically tunes system settings, currently only on RHEL7, CentOS7.x and Fedora.
Note: You need to set tuned to „throughput-performance“. Otherwise all changes in /etc/security/limits.conf will ignored!
The dedicated server is available for both Linux and Windows platforms. For both platforms, SteamCMD is used to download the server files. Refer to that page for detailed instructions on its installation and usage; the instructions included in the steps below are deliberately concise for space considerations.
- Warning: [Linux-specific | Windows: report missing] If you want to use a SSD to run the server, but your normal steam folder is on your main HDD, check the soft-links of the folders located in '.steam'
- Install SteamCMD on your host.
- Create a folder to house the server files on a volume with at least 15GB of free disk space. The server files consume about 10.4GB of space (Feb 2020 after Genesis 1 launch), but it's wise to plan for saves and future content updates which will consume additional space.
- Launch SteamCMD on your host and use it to download the server files. (Remove the < > and replace them with double quotes, for example, force_install_dir "C:\Program Files (x86)\Ark Server")
- Use app id 376030 for Survival Evolved or use 445400 for Survival of The Fittest. Steam> login anonymous Steam> force_install_dir <install_dir> Steam> app_update 376030 validate Steam> exit
- Or, run from command line:steamcmd +login anonymous +force_install_dir <install_dir> +app_update 376030 +quit
Replace with the full path to the folder created in Step 2. On Linux, this will be a path like . On Windows, this will be a path like .
- Create a script to launch the server with your desired options and settings. For simplicity's sake, place it in the same folder where the server files were downloaded. On Windows, this is a batch file; on Linux, this is a shell script. Examples are provided below. For both platforms, the server options are specified with the same basic syntax. For Windows, create and place it in YOUR_ARK_SERVER_FOLDER/ShooterGame/Binaries/Win64/ (remove the '<' '>' symbols!) start ShooterGameServer.exe TheIsland?listen?SessionName=<server_name>?ServerPassword=<join_password>?ServerAdminPassword=<admin_password>?Port=<port>?QueryPort=<query_port>?MaxPlayers=<max_players> exit
For Linux, create and place it in YOUR_ARK_SERVER_FOLDER/ShooterGame/Binaries/Linux/ (remove the '<' '>' symbols!)#! /bin/bash ./ShooterGameServer TheIsland?listen?SessionName=<server_name>?ServerPassword=<join_password>?ServerAdminPassword=<admin_password> -server -log
On Linux, after creating the script, make it executable:$ chmod +x server_start.sh
In both of these examples, replace with the desired name for your server, with whatever password players must provide to join your server and with the password that must be provided to gain administrator access to the server. If no player join password is desired, remove the entire option from the list (including the parameter itself).
- Finally, to launch the server, run the script created in the previous step.
Run a Beta Branch
Sometimes events are not implemented in the main game but into a so called branch. To run this event you change to this branch.
Add -beta with the branch name to the app_update command, likeSteam> app_update 376030 -beta branchname validate
Additionally start the server with .
Of course change the branchname to whatever the name of the branch is. When the event is or should be finished, just remove the additions.
Port Forwarding and Firewall
For your server to become visible in both the Ark server lists and the Steam lists, do the following:
Windows (Firewall and Allow Rules)
- If you're on Windows 10, click on the search box in the lower left corner and type in "wf.msc" without the quotes. Click the "Run as administrator" option.
- Click "Inbound Rules" on the left panel, then click "New Rule..." on the right panel.
- When the New Inbound Rule Wizard opens up, select Port, then Next.
- The wizard will present options for choosing the protocol and specifying ports. Leave the default selection of the TCP protocol and "Specific local ports". List the ports you plan to forward into the box (default 27020 for RCON). Use a comma to separate multiple ports. Select Next to continue.
- Select "Allow the connection" and continue with the wizard.
- Make sure all of the boxes are selected for where the rule applies.
- Enter a name (required) and a description (optional). It is recommended to append the protocol (TCP or UDP) to the rule name.
- Repeat these steps, but choose UDP on the "Protocol and Ports" page. Make sure to enter your steam browser/query port (27015 default) and game port (7777 default). You also need the raw udp socket port (7778 default, always your game port +1) if using ?bRawSockets.
- When finished, you should have a rule for TCP and a rule for UDP in the Inbound Rules section.
- This section and the port forwarding section go hand in hand.
- Close the advanced firewall window and open Windows Firewall again.
- Click "Allow an app or feature through Windows Firewall". Scroll down to ShooterGame. Make sure all apps named ShooterGame have the Private and Public boxes checked.
- You're done. If your ports don't work when you forward them, you can edit your Firewall inbound rules by going back to the advanced tab, selecting the Inbound Rules tab, right-clicking the rules you created, then clicking properties.
OS X (firewall application)
For most Linux distros, if there is a firewall at all it will be iptables based. Most modern distributions will use a different interface, it's a good idea to use that instead of direct iptables commands.
All firewall changes must be made either as root or with sudo. These open ports 7777 7778 and 27015 for UDP and optionally 27020 for TCP. You may want to adjust the list of ports you need by editing the "for port in..." line.
This script will open the ports in a way that will persist across reboots. UFW is the firewall on Ubuntu#!/bin/sh if [[ $EUID -ne 0 ]]; then echo "This must be run as root" exit 1 fi for port in 7777 7778 27015; do ufw allow $port/udp done #Uncomment the next if you want to open the default rcon port #ufw allow 27020/tcp
This script will open the ports in a way that will persist across reboots. FirewallD is the firewall on RHEL7, CentOS7.x and Fedora.#!/bin/sh if [[ $EUID -ne 0 ]]; then echo "This must be run as root" exit 1 fi for port in 7777 7778 27015; do firewall-cmd --permanent --add-port $port/udp done #Uncomment the next if you want to open the default rcon port #firewall-cmd --permanent --add-port 27020/tcp firewall-cmd --reload
Keep in mind that this is only a temporary solution and should only be used if neither of the other scripts apply for your system. To make it safe for reboots see the documentation of your distribution, how to add firewall ports to the existing configuration files - or how to add scripts to the boot process.#!/bin/sh if [[ $EUID -ne 0 ]]; then echo "This must be run as root" exit 1 fi for port in 7777 7778 27015; do iptables -t filter -I INPUT -p udp --dport $port -j ACCEPT done #Uncomment the next if you want to open the default rcon port #iptables -t filter -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 27020 -j ACCEPT
There are many websites with tutorials on port forwarding. It is highly suggested you visit portforward.com, which offers tutorials for the majority of routers.
What ports work depends on you. Try forwarding 27015 as the port and 27016 as the query port. 27015, 27016 and 7777 are the most common ports that work.
You must forward both TCP and UDP for your server to show up on any lists. You can make sure your ports are open by using the tool from portforward.com, that is, after you enter the ports that you have forwarded in the start_server.bat file you should have created earlier.
For example, start ShooterGameServer.exe TheIsland?listen?SessionName=<server_name>?ServerPassword=<join_password>?ServerAdminPassword=<admin_password>?Port=7777?QueryPort=27015?MaxPlayers=<max_players></max_players>
Good luck, port forwarding is not very easy.
Finding Your Server in Lists
You can access your server via the Steam servers list or the Ark unofficial list. Just search for your name in the Ark list, or find your IP address in the Steam server list. It is best to add your servers IP:PORT to your Steam favorites and joining using the 'favorites' tab in game. The in game list has a limit on the servers it will show at one time. There is no guarantee your server will appear in the unofficial lists all the time.
Windows (via Scheduled Task)
You can configure a scheduled task to automatically run a batch file and start the dedicated server when the system boots.
- Open 'Task Scheduler'
- Create Basic Task
- The 'Create Basic Task Wizard' will appear, name the task whatever you want
- Set the Trigger to 'When the computer starts'
- Set the Action to 'Start a program'.
- You will need to browse to the program/script you wish to start (which is your .BAT batch file that starts your server).
- Depending on how your batch file works, you may need to set the "Start in (optional)" path, so the working directory of your batch file is correct. (If your batch file simply contains the "start ShooterGame ..." command, then you should set the "Start in (optional)" path of your scheduled task to the directory that contains the batch file)
- Before you create the scheduled task, click the checkbox to "open properties window" after it's created
- In the General Tab under the Security Options frame, you probably want to choose "Run whether user is logged on or not"
- I personally checked "run with highest privileges" just in case. This might not be necessary.
Linux (via systemd)
- Note: systemd is not available for Ubuntu 14.04.
As an alternative to using a script to launch the dedicated server manually, hosts running systemd can be configured to automatically start the dedicated server when the system boots. When using this method to manage the server, using to specify its settings is highly recommended. Refer to Admin Game Commands for more information.
- Create a file named with the following contents: [Unit] Description=ARK: Survival Evolved dedicated server Wants=network-online.target After=syslog.target network.target nss-lookup.target network-online.target [Service] ExecStartPre=/home/steam/steamcmd +login anonymous +force_install_dir /home/steam/servers/ark +app_update 376030 +quit ExecStart=/home/steam/servers/ark/ShooterGame/Binaries/Linux/ShooterGameServer TheIsland?listen?SessionName=<session_name> -server -log WorkingDirectory=/home/steam/servers/ark/ShooterGame/Binaries/Linux LimitNOFILE=100000 ExecReload=/bin/kill -s HUP $MAINPID ExecStop=/bin/kill -s INT $MAINPID User=steam Group=steam [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
The line specifies the command to run in order to start the service. It uses the same syntax as the startup examples shown above (in #Server Installation), with all the same arguments, but here it's important to adjust it to reflect the location of your ARK dedicated server on the host. Use the full path to the server executable, as shown above.
Be sure to replace with the desired session name for your server as well.
Finally, adjust the and settings for your host. Without these two options in , the dedicated server will be run as the root user. This is unsafe, as any vulnerability in the dedicated server could result in an attacker gaining remote superuser access on the host.
It's recommended to run the dedicated server in an unprivileged account used solely for this purpose. In the example above, the user account "steam" is used. It's a member of the "steam" group, which is generally created along with the account.
WorkingDirectory option is required to fix some issues. (For example not having WorkingDirectory set will fail to download mods (if using with -automanagedmods))
- To install systemd: apt-get install systemd systemd-sysv
You will need to reboot after installation to initialize systemd.
Activate the new service so it starts automatically when the host boots by running the following command via sudo or a root shell:# systemctl enable ark-dedicated
After running this command, the dedicated server will automatically start when the host does. The command doesn't start the server immediately, so to launch the dedicated server after enabling it, run:# systemctl start ark-dedicated
After following these steps, your server should be up and running and be automatically managed by the host on startup and shutdown.
The server can be stopped by running:# systemctl stop ark-dedicated
and its current status can be viewed (whether it's running or not) by running:# systemctl status ark-dedicated
- Note: If you need to update the file (to change the dedicated server's startup options or to adjust its path), run the following command to ensure your changes are applied:
To update the server when a new version is released, repeat the same SteamCMD commands shown in the previous section. Be sure to use the correct set of commands for your platform. Refer to SteamCMD's documentation for details on automating this process.
If you use the systemd startup file you can easily integrate the update-mechanism to be run before every start of the game.
SteamCMD provides additional tools to make installation and updates easier and more seamless.
While running the game, the command console can be accessed with either the (tilde) or keys (depending on game version, default configuration and your keyboard layout). Once in the console, to activate administrator commands, enter:enablecheats <admin_password></admin_password>
Replace with the server's administrator password.
Refer to Admin Game Commands for a list of available commands.
If the console can't be opened in-game, exit the game, open the game's file (located in your Steam library in the folder named ) with a text editor and locate the line (near the bottom of the file) that reads:;+ConsoleKeys=Tab
Remove the semicolon (;), changing the line to read:+ConsoleKeys=Tab
Save the file and launch the game. The console should be accessible.
Backing Up Server Data
To make a backup of the server data, simply copy the folder named (and his content) to the desired backup location. This folder contains all tribe, player and world data for the server. Performing a backup is recommended before updating a server to a new release.
Server loses characters or world data upon restart
If your server isn't retaining characters or world data when it's restarted, it may not have full access to the folder where it's installed.
The first time the server is run, it should create a folder named containing various configuration and save files. If the server has run at least once but hasn't created this folder, it may not have been able to create new folders and files there. Verify that the folder where the server is installed is readable and writable by the user account that actually runs the server. (For Windows servers, check the status of User Account Control)
The server software, by default, is set-up to automatically save world data every 15 minutes. If your server crashes before the first 15 minutes are up, you will not have any data saved.
Linux server exhibits high CPU usage and low memory usage (Below 1GB)
This can occur when the server can't open all the files it needs due to an insufficient open files limit on the host. Refer to the Linux section above and follow the procedure to increase the host's open files limit.

The Ark Server Manager is designed to help you set up and maintain your own Ark: Survival Evolved (tm) dedicated servers. It provides a simple user interface allowing you to create and edit server profiles containing all of the settings you need to customize the playing experience for you and your friends.
What it does:
- Manages the SteamCMD tool and Server installations/updates.
- Organizes settings and writes INI files and command-line arguments automatically.
- Tracks server status and allows direct control of server state.
- Save and load server profiles - even import directly from an existing server deployment.
- Scheduled updates server files and mods.
- Works with Survival of the fittest.
If you're planning to have players join from the EpicGames version of ARK you must have the command line option set.

In her tight ass. She screamed and began to finish after me, her orgasm lasted no less than half a minute. Then she turned around and kissed me on the cheek without saying anything and only smiling at me again. She lifted her thumbs up again and. Giggled before starting to pick up her clothes that were strewn all over the floor.
