Log in to our TCAdmin panel.
Navigate to your game services and select the server you want to apply these settings on.
Click on Configuration Files
Next to ShooterGame\Saved\Config\WindowsServer\GameUserSettings.ini, click on Text Editor.

You can also use our configuration editor (click on configuration editor instead) for easier, user friendly configuration.

If using the text editor, add the settings listed below, under [ServerSettings], at the bottom of any other settings in this area.

DayCycleSpeedScale=1.000000
DayTimeSpeedScale=1.000000
NightTimeSpeedScale=1.000000


You will need to change the value (1.000000) depending on what cycle you would like.
If using the configuration editor instead, simply change the value in the box in the configuration editor based on the advise below.

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.

Don't forget to save either the text or configuration editor depending on which you are using!
