  • Hey guys,

    I have recently set up an ARK: Survival Evolved Server for me and my friends. We are running 14 mods. We are experiencing the following issue: A few of us have both a slow internet connection and no SSD. This means that joining the server takes a very long time since they have to both connect and load the mods (they are already downloaded via the workshop). Because joining takes so long, a few people get a connection timeout error before loading the mods is finished. Is there a way to increase the timespan someone can try to login before our server breaks the connection with them?

    (I don't know a lot about servers so what I am saying might not be correct or impossible)


    thanks for the help!

  • Sadly when you run that many mods, those connecting will have issues. SSD will make a different for all of them.

    They just have to keep reconnecting until the mod is downloaded. Its how ARK does it.
