Introducing, MAGA: Make Ark Great Again!
- PvP Cooldown system with extras.
Made to balance/fix troubles you might have getting pvp perfectly balanced :)
Atlas version coming soon!

  • PvP Cooldown System properly tracking pvp, with the ability to:
    • Add X seconds duration for player vs player, Y seconds for player vs structures.
    • Block any weapon from config list while active pvp cooldown.
    • Block any structure from config list from being picked up/demolished while pvp cooldown.
    • Block any chat /command from config list while on pvp cooldown.
    • Block players from "popcorning" by only allowing them to drop items each X seconds and a max stack size of Y. Can also block the ability to "drop all" inventory.
  • Offline Protection (ORP)
    • Protects structures and dinos while offline.
    • Activates after set minutes offline
    • Sets different amount of time to activate if player has recently been involved in pvp activity. (pvp cooldown)
    • Set max hours of protection.
    • Adjustable protection damage multiplier from 0% damage to 100% (and more if you'd wish)
    • Ability to set different damage multiplier for dinos that aren't passive.
  • Suicide Command.
  • Dino Stats command that can show player base stats of their dinosaur. Can also set the dinos name for you with the stats.
  • Chat Handling
    • Spam protection: Allow player to only speak in global chat once each set seconds.
    • Hides every /command from chat. It will never be shown to any player.
    • If a player write wrong chat command. The plugin will give the player working commands matching fewer letters.
  • Everything is fully configurable!

Purchase Info:
After payment join my Discord via "Get Support" button (top right), and send me your hwid. The plugin will print it in console when not authorized.
Please give me at least 1-24 hours to autorize the hwid. No new DLL is needed.
This purchase comes with basic support if needed.

Hwid Info:
- Each license represents a physical machine, so 6 ark servers running on one machine would only need 1 licence, Additional licensee's are required when using multiple physical servers.
- Are you moving server host/upgrading hardware and worried about the hwid? Not a problem send me a pm, here or on discord, with the new hwid and I will have it updated. In most cases within the hour, but it can take up to 24 hours depending upon my availability at that moment.

For questions or more information join my Discord via this link:
(This is a temporary link, and unless assigned a role, you automatically leave server when you go offline on discord.)
