Ark Survival Ascended: Top 10 Best Mods

Here’s a quick breakdown of our list of the Top 10 best mods for Ark: Survival Ascended:

Automated Ark Mod

If you want to enhance your base building with extra structures and elements, then the Automated Ark mod is be the best choice. This mod provides you with automated mechanics for resource gathering, as well as crafting, allowing for more effective farming strategies and advanced crafting results. My favorite part of this mod is the extended storage, which allows you to keep far more items than usual.

Cryo Storage Mod

At some point, you’ll have so many dinos in your possession that keeping them all out in the open won’t be an option anymore. That’s where the Cryo Storage mod comes in very handy, as it allows you to keep your dinos in special cryo pods. This will significantly reduce the stress on the servers, and the game won’t lag as much, improving overall gameplay. It also makes the transportation of the dinos so much easier. Add this to your mods lineup ASAP.

Super Spyglass Plus Mod

If you’ve only just started playing Ark Survival Ascended but have ambitious plans to tame as many creatures as possible (I mean, who doesn’t?), then this mod will help you immensely. The Super Spyglass Plus mod provides you with detailed stats and levels of all creatures, including info on how to breed them in the most effective way. I promise you, once you install this mod, you’ll find just how convenient it makes your whole gameplay experience.

Utilities Plus Mod

Are you tired of constantly losing your items or breaking them without any chance of renewal? Well, the very awesome and very useful Utilities Plus mod makes a number of the most used items reusable again. Here’s a complete list of all resuable items in this mod:

  • Bola
  • Flare Gun
  • Grappling Hook
  • Parachute
  • Spear
  • Binoculars
  • Torch

Solo Farm Mod

Farming resources in solo mode is hard, and that’s where the Solo Farm mod make your life so much easier. This little mod introduces a rather complex system of automated tasks that end up doing the hard work for you. The best part about this mod is that you can fine-tune all the smallest details regarding various farming features in the game.

Upgrade Station Mod

Did you know that you can make all your gear much more effective and long-lasting in Ark: Survival Ascended? This is now possible with the new Upgrade Station, which allows you to improve the stats and the overall quality of your gear. Of course, it’s not a cheap business, as every upgrade requires a hefty amount of resources, but it’s worth it. As a result, your weapons and armor will last much longer than usual and will fit much closer to your specific needs.

TG Stacking Mod

A limited inventory can really make things unnecessarily complicated. But once you install the TG Stacking mod, you’ll never have to worry about that, as it adds extra stacks to your inventory. In this way, you’ll be able to gather and store way more resources than usual. As it stands now, if you use it right, this mod will reduce up to 90% of your stack load in the game, taking away all the pressure from the server load.

Admin Panel Mod

Server management is a hard job, but if you have the time to learn this fantastic mod, then everything from server settings to creating new worlds, as well as installing mods, will be a lot easier for you. The user interface of the Admin Panel is super simple, allowing you to adjust even the smallest settings.

Svartalfheim Mod

Svartalfheim is a new dwarven map for Ark: Survival Ascended, with 33 square kilometers of new land. I must warn you that this map is completely devoid of any flying creatures, and it doesn’t allow any flying whatsoever. But it adds lots of new alpha beasts as well as dwarven enemies, plus a ton of new resources.

Death Inventory Keeper Mod

Lastly, probably the most unpleasant thing that could happen to a player in this game is the loss of the onventory after death. The Death Inventory Keeper mod allows you to preserve all your items after death, making your game a lot less stressful.

That’s it for our list of the Top 10 best mods in Ark: Survival Ascended. Stay tuned for more ASA tips and tricks articles right here, including console commands for better performance and how to fix dinos not spawning.
