I've started up a nitrado server for ark and I am having trouble with mods. I'm not sure how load order works or any of that but I am experienced with ark's expert settings because I ran a server for a bit on console.
I have figured out how to get mods on my server but Im having issues with the game wanting to take about 2 or 3 minutes before it even begins to load into the server. Ark stops responding for about 2 minutes and then it takes another 2 minutes to load. Mind you, I have to use the "Connect to Server" button on nitrado. I can't find the server on the ark server browser and when I tried to favorite it through steam, steam says the server is not responding and I can't join. I've spent the last few days trying to figure this out.
I have the following installed on the ark server in this order.
Jack & Jill Full character replacement
Noob Starter Kit
Pimp My Home
Pimp My Home Building Parts
Admin Donation Skins
PvP Safe Zones v2
