GamingOGs will be releasing the following plugins to https://arkserverapi.com/resources/
• Lootboxes - Quests (Fully functional lootboxes with a lootbox editor program and quests system included.)
• Trivia (Basically a lightweight mini-game plugin to create a more interactive in-game chat.)
• Protection / ORP (Full-blown starter player protection included a full-blown ORP system.)
• Discord Metrics (Logging plugin to track and monitor in-game actions into a discord channel.)
• Discord Command Logger (Allows you to define what commands you want to log works for all plugin commands and rcon/console commands.)
• Adverts (This basically is an adverts plugin on steroids it gives you full control of timer intervals and you can define exactly how you want timers to be displayed in-game.)
• Auto-Decay (This is a plugin that took 8 months to fully create and it works extremely efficient with zero performance lost.) Every plugin we release will be built for ATLAS MMO AND ARK SURVIVAL EVOLVED!

You may find a full list of our plugins here: https://arkserverapi.com/members/gamingogs.815/#resources
We've been testing and running the GamingOGs plugins on multiple servers with other server owners from the past year. We finally are at a point where testing and bugs have been ruled out and ready to release to the public. We are creating some really cool plugins especially the quality of life plugins we think you guys will really enjoy.

YouTube Videos

Please note;
We are working on uploading the plugins to the resources page. We are also working with Michidu to ensure they upload correctly and are formatted correctly. During this time please expect uploads/changes for the plugins we will be uploading. All of our plugin builds will be for Atlas and Ark Survival Evolved. We look forward to releasing these plugins for everyone.

If you have noticed duplicate plugin threads on the plugins section it's a result of an upload bug we are looking into fixing that. We have many plugin builds that are being modified over the next few weeks that will allow us to slowly upload them one by one to ArkServerAPI.

Update as of 6/9/2020;
- We released all the plugins public to the resources section on the website. We are currently working on rendering out some free builds in accordance with the new changes for the Terms of service for all devs going forward. So expect to see some free plugins being released by GamingOGs over the next few weeks.

You listed an Auto-decay plugin, but i don't see that resource listed anywhere. Is this a resource you're offering?

Thanks for reaching out, Yeah we have that listed in our discord community. Out of respect to other talented devs we didn't want to undercut or compete against them so that plugin is listed only on our discord. We're currently working on coding/creating some free plugins to release on API soon here as well. So if you're interested in the plugins listed above that aren't on API feel free to join our discord. https://discord.gg/B3Nmc9r

Status update: v1.0

We're finally getting to the finale stages of finishing our ArkShop editor program. We will be releasing this program for free on the tools/plugins section here in the next few weeks. This editor will work and function the same way our Lootbox Editor program works essentially you'll be about to create thousands of lines of configuration items/dinos/commands/beacons and much more in a matter of minutes. This dramatically increases the production speed of server configuration and keeping the downtime speed very minimal our editor will also include the same system we use in loot box editor where it prevents you from making any type of JSON errors. If you would like to know the latest updates feel free to join the discord listed above in the posting. The expected delivery and ETA on this is about 2-3 weeks out.

Status update: v1.1
We delayed-release on ArkShop Editor back a few weeks as COVID19 relations have taken an impact on daily living and we wanted to focus on getting some bug fixes done for the bugs reported in the plugins we released over the past weeks. We just now have released a mega update to player protection plugin that brings a bunch of quality of life bug fixes that should dramatically improve in-game complaints of exploits that were found. We are planning on knocking out some more bug/update fixes to better optimize a few of the plugins like lootboxes and after that is completed the plan is to release the ArkShop Editor tool as a free tool that all server owners can use without the needing of HWID activation system. We have some smaller plugins we will be releasing for free as well after the mega plugins are 100% completed. Arkshop Editor will be an extremely efficient tool as it's completed we have future plans on not only offering it as a program but also offering a web-based solution for user interface panels and so forth so defiantly some exciting stuff to create.

We are also working on a mod called `EventMap` this will be a server map all unofficial server owners can be able to use we actually need some feedback/ideas if anyone has feedback on what they would like to see us add. A vast majority of unofficial servers host events and typically use the out-dated event map on the Steam workshop. We plan on creating one that is specifically designed for unofficial server owners to host events with. If any of you guys have any suggestions or feedback for the map I would love to hear it!

take your time with that arkshop editor! Would rather see something really polished and working great out of the gate. :) As for your EventMap, make something that is on par with the arkforum eventmap but doesnt use a lot of custom modded in assets so it reduces the size an enduser needs to download. Most of us owners create our own events anyways with our own builds on it and would rather have a map with little static modded assets on it. I hope that wasn't too confusing, lol.

Status update: v1.2
We applied mega updates to protection plugin and lootboxes we have released those updates on ArkServerAPI and inside our dev discord. We will be improving security in our HWID system and setting up new systems to allow us to start releasing free plugins without the HWID lock activation. This system will allow us to release ArkShop editor without requiring any HWID activations from users so the program will be completely free for all.

We've been slowly working more and more on the event map we are creating that hopefully will replace the outdated one everyone uses in the steam workshop. We have few more updates and bug fixes to the other plugins then we'll be finishing out ArkShop editor and releasing it to the public.


Lootboxes Patch Notes
  • Added a new command to disable lootboxes for "X" time. (Very useful when doing events or wipe cycles.)
  • Added a new command to enable lootboxes. (Very useful when doing events or wipe cycles.)
  • Added a new command to randomly add/set/remove to single or all players. (Allows you to control everyone's lootboxes instead of single users.)
  • Lootbox editor now allows the config setting to give a min/max amount of points instead of a set "X" amount.
  • Added a configuration setting to disable Discord Metrics for server owners who don't want to use the discord logging feature.
  • When a user types /boxes it will now generate a syntax and display a message instead of being blank.
  • Improved the admin console logging to lower the number of red errors seen when inventory is full and can't get items.
  • Added a failsafe to prevent loot box from being removed if the user's inventory is full.
  • Added in last update a setting to allow loot box editor to define MySQL login settings from within the editor itself.
  • Performance and other tweaks were made to better optimize the plugin itself.

New Commands:
  • Cheat disableboxes 24h - This will disable lootboxes from being earned or used for that "X" time. [m=minutes/h=hours/d=days]
  • Cheat enableboxes - This will enable all lootboxes to become earnable and accessible again.
  • Cheat RemoveBox SteamID BoxName Amount - This allows admins to remove boxes from players in-game.
  • Cheat SetBox SteamID BoxName Amount - This command instead of giving them boxes it sets the boxes to a defined "X" amount.
  • Cheat SetBoxAll BoxName Amount - This will do the same as command above but it does to everyone online currently.
  • Cheat GiveBoxAll BoxName Amount - Same as GiveBox command but it gives it to everyone online currently.
  • Cheat RandBoxAll BoxName Amount - Same as the RandBox command but it gives it to everyone online currently.
  • Cheat RemoveBoxAll BoxName Amount - Will remove the "X" amount of boxes from everyone online.

Offline Raid Protection Patch Notes

  • Allowed protected players to grapple their dead bodies and retrieve their loot.
  • Added a cooldown effect to the ORP messages to prevent it from being spammed when attempting to destroy structures.

We are now going to be releasing the "EventMap" we have been working on. It's very early Alpha but is stable and smooth enough for server owners/admins to begin using it for server events. We have great plans coming for the event map with new arenas! We are currently working on deploying out some bug fixes for bounty hunter and auto decay plugin.

We just now deployed some hotfixes to bounty hunter and protection plugin that resolves an exploit with steamIDs not storing the reward data correctly. We resolved a crash exploit reported in the protection plugin as well. Our next update will be modifying the current system of HWID protections to start releasing some plugins that are free including the arkshop editor we are working on. We've also changed the names of the plugins to make them more clean and organized and visually appealing.

We have completed the HWID update that will now allow us to make plugins that are free and not require paid HWID activation. We will be unlocking discord metrics and command logger as our first free two plugins. We are finally on the finale stages of fixing the bugs that were reported in a few of the selected plugins we have been having some issues with. Some very exciting stuff to come in the coming weeks!

We have released a new update to our eventmap mod we added a massive new arena tonight that is designed for large scale player vs player battles it's heavily inspired by the old youtube series called `Red vs Blue Halo`. Some screenshots are posted below, we have also begun the production of arkshop editor this week as we now are at a point where all the bugs reported in plugins are fixed for the most part. If all goes well and smooth we should expect to be able to release arkshop editor potentially in the next 2 weeks.

Plans are being discussed to create a plugin that will automate events that work on our event map.

We are very excited to announce we have completed the Arkshop editor and will be releasing this public once we finish testing it. (3-4 days max) We will be working with Michidu and seeing if we can also deploy a mega update to the Arkshop plugin here soon with newly added features to support more up to date trends and modern concepts.

Arkshop Editor will be 100% free for everyone to use!

We have located a bug within discord metrics and command logger we are fixing tonight. Command Logger and discord metrics will no longer require HWID activation which in return makes the plugin work with any new user without any concern of having to activate HWIDs. We will be adding new commands into the command logger that allows you to reload the plugin and to add some debug tools. Based on community feedback we will be removing the requirement for hosting the discord bot making the plugin work 100% flawless with discord webhooks and no need for a discord bot .exe anymore.

We have uploaded lootbox and arkshop editor to the arkserverapi resources for all users to use. We will be working with Michidu next on adding some quality of life updates to the main ArkShop plugin which will bring in tons of new custom features that server owners have requested.

We've just completed another plugin project we've been working on that will allow server owners to set up their own website and in-game mod character stats using our plugin posted here: https://arkserverapi.com/index.php?resources/gamingogs-statistics-pvp-leaderboards.223/ .

We have created and will be releasing a MEGA admin tools mod designed to give admins in-game tools/GUI/leaderboards and much more to allow server owners and admins to be able to moderator their in-game servers much more efficiently. You can check out the mod located here we are going to be working on two major projects next. We will be revamping the entire ArkSHOP main plugin to provide much-needed quality of life updates alongside Michidu, we will also begin the development stage of creating a very advance in-game quests plugin that will work alongside the API we just released today to allow admins to have interactive quests on their own websites or even inside their own mods.

We have reduced the selling prices on ALL OF GOG plugins by 75% to allow more admins/owners to get the plugins without having to invest heavy prices.

We've been working on a WordPress/PHP website feature for the leaderboard plugin. Here is a very early sneak peek below at what we have so far. It will look better once fully completed but as you can see the data is working smoothly with the plugin in-game. We have also decided we will be recoding our lootbox plugin as we have located some hard crash bugs deep inside the coding of the plugin. The best way to fix that long term is by providing a more stable coding inside lootbox to prevent issues down the road.


I am planning down the road after this website code is completed to also include the player vs player leaderboard inside our admin tools mod so you can also check that in-game.

We are now creating a discord bot system that will be FREE for everyone. This discord bot will work with our stats plugin so you can view your in-game stats inside discord by using the discord bot alongside our plugin. We are also going to make this bot compatible with @woolypenguin plugins so if you using his plugins you will be able to see his data inside the bot. We also are including a player counter inside the discord bot this discord bot will be 100% FREE for everyone.
