Ark Events and How To Enable Them

We add all events to our command line settings editor for easily selection. Not all event codes are listed below.

Thank you for choosing us as your ARK:Survival Evolved Host!

This guide will help you understand the different Ark Events and how to enable them!

In ARK there are events of two types: Holiday Events and Miscellaneous Events. Both can consist of boosted rates, temporary or permanent content such as skins or unique dinos to the game. Some of these events are timed, while others can last indefinitely. These are the events you can force on for your server:

Holiday ARK Events
ARK: Winter Wonderland / Christmas Events -ActiveEvent=WinterWonderland
ARK: New Year's / New Years Events
ARK: Valentine's Day / Valentine Day Events
ARK: Eggcellent Adventure / Easter - -ActiveEvent=Easter

Miscellaneous Events:
ARKaeology - ActiveEvent=Arkaeology
Extinction Chronicles - ActiveEvent=ExtinctionChronicles
Summer Bash 2019 - ActiveEvent=SummerBash

To activate any of these from within your control panel or if there are any new events that haven't been added to the commandline manager, you can do the following:
Head to your TCADMIN panel. TCAdmin

Click on Commandline Settings
Command-line Setting

Click Edit on the Command-line that is enabled.
You can set up alternative Command-lines for changing the event or map.

Edit the Command-line and find the Enable Special ARK Events (hover over drop down for info)

Special ARK Events

Select your event and save the Command-line at the bottom.

If there is a new event, always check the patch notes. As the devs usually include the -ActiveEvent= line for that event within the patch notes for you to use. We normally have it in the Enable Special Events box at the top shortly after release.
