Primitive Plus (or Primitive+) is a free, official DLC total conversion for ARK: Survival Evolved. The mod was originally submitted to the Steam Workshop by Steam user complexminded before it was officially released on July 28, 2016 for the PC version of ARK.

Primitive Plus is available for the Xbox version and the PlayStation 4 version. Must have PS+/Xbox Live Gold Membership to enjoy the online features.

Features[edit | edit source]

Primitive Plus enhances the gameplay of primitive servers by adding new game mechanics and over 100 custom primitive items and their Engrams. Players are challenged to use primarily wood and stone without the benefit of advanced metals. The items and mechanics focus the players on 'primitive' survival.

Among the new items are three new building material types (lumber, glass, and brick) as well as new resources, food items, weapons, traps, crafting stations and decorative structures.

Game Breaking Bugs[edit | edit source]

Primitive Plus currently has a few major bugs that can be considered 'game breaking', in that they really impact the way you can play the game. (Source)

  • Little to no dinos at all spawn on The Island's map, making it difficult for the player to survive.
  • Sometimes environments load in untextured, (Ex. Grassy lands or sands are turning up pitch black)
  • Supply Drops do not spawn (including caves and artifacts)
    • WildCard is having difficulties tracking this one down. Appears to apply to all official servers over all platforms.
    • This breaks the ability to obtain blueprints for higher quality items
    • This makes it extremely difficult to transfer characters, dinos or items off of the Aberration map, requiring visiting the surface or boss terminal to transfer off by Obelisk.
  • The new Kibble system does not work for most dinosaurs.
    • With exception to Karkinos, Giant Bee, and Rock Elemental, the new kibble will destroy taming effectiveness and not reduce time.
    • Players still in possession of the old kibble can still use it, but old kibble can not be created anymore.
  • Some Engrams do not work
