Atlas structure decay

  • Ok so I was building a server hub on Freeport island and the decay timer was running out so I changed “PVP structure decay” to off and when I restarted and logged back in everything was destroyed (8ish hours of building!) which was...upsetting. I have 2 questions.

    1. what settings do I change to get a 3 or 4 day decay timer with structures on Freeport island? I just don’t want people to have the option to demolish....or the game to tear down my work again.

    2. I checked backups and since I switched my server over from ark to atlas today I don’t think it had saved the server at any point but I could be wrong, at least it doesn’t list any atlas server backups in my backup tab. Is there a way to restore what I had built? I’ve stopped the server so if it was periodically saving it should all still be up in the last save file.
