Note: This guide assumes you are using our ARK server hosting with our control panel.

If you want to increase dino egg hatching, dino breeding, and dino maturing times on your ARK Survival Evolved server you will need to do the following.

Open the following configuration file which we need to edit:

ShooterGame / Saved / Config / LinuxServer / Game.ini

By default this file should be empty, you will need to paste the following into it:

[/Script/ShooterGame.ShooterGameMode]
MatingIntervalMultiplier=0.001
EggHatchSpeedMultiplier=32.0
BabyMatureSpeedMultiplier=32.0
LayEggIntervalMultiplier=0.3
BabyCuddleIntervalMultiplier=.1

Save the configuration file then restart your ARK server.

Note that existing dinos will not update immediately due to the way the ARK servers work. It's best to test with new tamed dinos or wait until the server software checks the dinos again. Things such as baby dino maturity speed will only take affect on new dinos, not existing ones.

Here is what each parameter does:

  • MatingIntervalMultiplier - Lower number results in dinos having a lower breeding interval
  • EggHatchSpeedMultiplier - Higher number results in dino eggs hatching faster
  • BabyMatureSpeedMultiplier - Higher number results in faster dino maturity period
  • LayEggIntervalMultiplier - Lower number results in dinos laying eggs faster
  • BabyCuddleIntervalMultiplier - Lower number results in a lower cuddle timer on baby dinos
