Discord is a free app downloadable for PC, Tablets, and Mobile that allows Players to connect in a forum type setting. I've created 2 save files within the game folders (2 servers) - I believe the save locations is my issue. So, Instance E could share the clusterID for Instance A and B, and the clusterID for instance C and D together?? Instance A and B could share one clusterID and instances C & D could share another all ran off the same server. This command line options tells the server where to save its data. Note that the ports are different (cannot run multiple servers on the same ports), but the cluster directory and cluster ID are the same. This part was covered pretty well on the FAQ, but I will break it down a bit here to explain in more detail. So, I recommend doing the same, although when running without it, nothing seems to change. symlinks) are an operating system feature that allows you to create a file system entry (a directory in our case) that redirects to another file system entry. For example: NOTE: If you don't know what symbolic links are, I cover that below. (Update: If you are running on a dedicated host, make sure your cluster id is unique and secret, because there is a possibility the host is using a shared cluster save location.).

Important Note: If you have noTributeDownloads=true on your command line or in your settings INI, people will not be able to transfer anything. In case you have not read it, here is the FAQ I am referring to: A cluster is simply a server-side location to store Ark data that is uploaded from an obelisk (characters, items, dinos). As far as I can tell at the moment, it appears to work; I have two servers concurrently running launched via arkmanager with separate instance configs and with separate backup and save directories. I had the same theory originally, but I tested it and found it to not be true. So come and join us, win loads of prizes just for playing! https://github.com/FezVrasta/ark-server-tools/issues/578. Your cluster should be good to go! Rules. Note that the save directories are different, the ports are different (cannot run multiple servers on the same ports), but the cluster ID is the same. there are not currently options for uploads, but it is my understanding you can add them manually still, even using ASM. directories for each of the servers (in my case parallel to the original SavedArks directory in ShooterGame/Saved).

All rights reserved. Setting up a symbolic link is different on different operating systems. There is now a supported way to have independent servers use a shared cluster directory. Server 1 game files are the original game directories and server 2 are the files symbollicaly linked to server 1. However, both require that you have set a clusterid as described above.

It might be possible to set the cluster directory to point at a shared network resource, but I have never tried it. ============================================================================= When using a cluster, the data is instead kept on the server in a special location: Any servers with access to that folder, and which share the same cluster ID, will be able to share uploaded data with each other.

I have updated the config file on both servers and the relevant command line and game INI files, I uploaded my character's data via an obelisk (instead of transferring to another ARK, accidentally). Disable downloading tamed dinos from the cluster to this server. (My client session runs from a 3rd complete instance from a different drive.). This tells the server the name of the cluster to use, and becomes part of the cluster save path on disk. Probably better having them ran from different users/directories though, or may cause some conflict. Welcome to Alpha Project Cluster survivor!
