Rent now your own prepaid ARK: Survival Evolved Server at

Here you will learn how to increase the max tamed dinos of your server. There is no "Unlimited" Setting, and there is no way to disable the setting. To increase the number of tame's this must be set to an arbitrary number. Follow the instructions below in order to learn how to alter this value.

Important: Please stop the Gameserver and wait for it to be completely stopped before performing any of the actions listed below!

Altering the value in the General Settings

After activating expert mode, follow these steps:


  • You will find the value "Maximum amount of dinos tamed" in the "Gameplay" section


  • Increase value to your liking

Altering the Value with Expert Mode

    • Example Maxpersonaltameddinos=1500
  • Save Changes
