Log in to the TCAdmin panel and go to your game servers dashboard.

Click Game Services on the left hand side (you may need to expand "Game and Voice Management", then select the server you want to edit.

Click on Configuration Files

Click Configuration Editor for the GameUserSettings.ini file

In here you will be able to find the settings to do this:

Day Cycle Speed Scale
Day Time Speed Scale
Night Time Speed Scale


You will need to change the value next to the above settings depending on what cycle you would like. (advice below)

Once set, click save and start the server

You can find info of each of the settings below to assist with this.

DayCycleSpeedScale=1.000000

Specifies the scaling factor for the passage of time in the ARK world, controlling how often day changes to night and night changes to day. The default value 1 provides the same cycle speed as the singleplayer experience (and the official public servers). Values lower than 1 slow down the cycle; higher values accelerate it. Base time when value is 1 appears to be 1 minute real time equals approx. 28 minutes game time. Thus, for an approximate day/night cycle to match real world 24 hours, use 0.035

DayTimeSpeedScale=1.000000

Specifies the scaling factor for the passage of time in the ARK world during the day. This value determines the length of each day, relative to the length of each night (as specified by NightTimeSpeedScale. Lowering this value increases the length of each day)

NightTimeSpeedScale=1.000000

Specifies the scaling factor for the passage of time in the ARK during night time. This value determines the length of each night, relative to the length of each day (as specified by DayTimeSpeedScale. Lowering this value increases the length of each night)

By leaving all the settings at default (1) your day time would be 40 minutes and your night time would be 20 minutes. Full day cycle: 60 minutes.
