Saving an inactive server's map

  • Does anyone know if there's a way to save a server's map, dinos, tribe and player account data into a place somewhere else? For the duration that that server will be shut down no longer renewed?

    My server's been inactive for months and I don't want to lose everyone's bases and dinos that they worked hard to build and breed, and most members plan on coming back some day when they get their PCs upgraded so they can handle Ark in the first place... but I keep paying monthly for an inactive server. :\


    And if so, then how do you re-add that map, dino, base, and player account data back into a server later on?

  • You sure can! Make a backup of the ../ShooterGame/Saved/ folder which contains your config, your logs, along with your world saves. Then just restore that directory on any server whenever you want to take your game where you left it. :thumbsup:
