2km Ragnarok PVE: 5/12/17 - 5/6/18

Except for both admins everybody has started from scratch after december 5, 2017. The map is cleaned regularly and 'structure decay' allows you to remove abandonned structures yourself. Nothing can block your progress.

Backups of "2km TheCenter" have been taken on december 2 (ark.2km.backup.2017.12.02.zip), december 4 (ark.2km.backup.2017.12.04.zip) and december 5 (ark.2km.backup.2017.12.05.zip). They will be kept available for download.

Backups of the pre 23/7 version of the server are still available for download as well. 2km-Backup-2017.07.20_11.26.7z and 2km-Backup-2017.07.21_19.29.7z are each less than 10MB and contain the state of the map, all tribe files and all player profiles.

The content of the SavedArks folder in the archive can be copied into your ..\ShooterGame\Saved\TheCenterSavedArksLocal folder in single player or into the folder you have configured on your server. In order for you to be the 'you' you were on 2km, there is a %steamID%.arkprofile file you will want to copy over your LocalPlayer.arkprofile. If you don't know your steamID you can use a text editor to search in all *.arkprofiles for your player name. Obviously you can also use your admin powers to claim what you want and destroy the rest. Make sure to activate the mods or your structures and items might be gone.


Farming and XP multipliers are set to 3. Taming, hatching and growing is set to 10. Imprinting bonus multiplier is set to 5. Spoil timer is set to 1.

12/12/17 pull range has been normalised to 18 foundations.

Difficulty is set to 15 making 450 the highest level for most wild dinos.


Voice chat

Many of us use discord by default. You dont need to have a registered account to connect to the discord, even though I strongly recommend it. It takes less than 5 minutes to make one. To use it as a guest, go to https://discordapp.com/, hit the "Open Discord in your browser"-button, enter a username, click join a server and enter this code 8wjSqJv and you're all set. The server is called 2km and you can use the permanent invite to go directly to the ARK channel. In case you want to contact the admin: search for wandelaar#5569.
