From ARK: Survival Evolved Wiki
Released - 07 July, 2016
- Fixed issue with players teleporting above the landscape in Cave 1. Requires Server Update.
- Windows & Linux Dedicated Servers now support automatic mod download/installation/updating! Just add "-automanagedmods" to your launch commandline and it will do so before the server launches (note for Maps this will not work unless you're specifying the Workshop ID to load a Mod Map). On Linux Servers, you need to run this script (included with the ARK dedicated server files) once to install SteamCMD:
You can also specify a manual list of extra Steam Workshop Mods/Maps/TC ID's to download/install/update in your Game.ini via (with the commandline as normal to actually use them in-game), example:
[ModInstaller] ModIDS=680481868 ModIDS=682394267 ModIDS=714672786
