Here you will learn how to switch between game modes with your ARK server.

Please note the following when changing the map of a PVP server:

  • "There is a known issue when changing the map of a PvP server with existing player profiles, which can result in very long respawn times. We suggest to either upload the player data through an obelisk before switching the map (and then downloading the player data after that), or performing a save folder wipe in the 'Backup' section after switching the map, which deletes all player data."

Activating PVE

  • Navigate to your Nitrado Web interface
  • Access your "Settings>General"
  • Activate the setting to Disable PVP and Activate PVE:
