Enjoy using it! Thank you very much for that amazing creation!
Absolutely amazing! Since moving our server to Windows and finding Ark Server API I've been itching to get back into programming again! Thank you all who made this possible and who help make more functionality, it works beautifully. I can't wait to see what I can do!
10/10 Server Plugins without mods. I've been sharing this resource with so many server owners.
By far the best thing since sliced bread. The potential uses for this are mind boggeling. This has now been implemented across our server cluster with a selection of plugins. Thanks for your most awesome work :)
Thanks for your work i love you
