How do I increase host tether distance in Ark?
You can use the ARK server manager to make it pretty easy, really. No tether there. You can change the distance in non dedicated settings screen. The slider goes to 3x but you can type a number in the box next to it to override.
The version through steam and epic you can adjust this setting in the settings of the game but since the game pass version only associates itself with the version on Xbox (which doesn't support it) it can't adjust it either along with the fact you can't crossplay between Microsoft and Steam/Epic even if both are on pc.
There is only 1 way and that is to host/run a dedicated server.
You can adjust the max distance in the setting but once you hit max that is it. The only way to get rid of tether is to play on dedicated servers or solo.
You can't change the tether. It's a limitation of consoles that they don't have the power to load the entire map. The person hosting dictates the tether distance so if a person on a ps5/series x hosts, the distance will be bigger than if a ps4/xbox one hosts. But the tether will still exist regardless.
The real answer is to switch over to a dedicated server. That is the only way to completely eliminate the tether range. If it is only going to be you and a few friends, you should be able to run the dedicated server on the same PC that you play on..
With the command "r. ViewDistanceScale <value>" you can adjust the drawing distance for things like rocks, grasses, and trees. The minimum value is current 0.1. Playing around with this setting can help you in terms of performance.
- Host a dedicated server yourself on another xbox or PC( you will need the game on another account for this). ...
- Rent a server from a place like gportal or nitrado. ...
- Join a private server that has settings you like.
The anti-meshing system is far more aggressive than it has been previously, complete with tribe logging and system alerts when players position isn't recognized by the game. Events where players teleport around the map is now even less forgiving than before, as well.
Due to the fact that you'll be able to host a server and play at the same time, there is a limit on how far survivors can travel from one another. Currently this is set to approx 250M, as well as a limit on the amount of players that can be online at once, which is the host + 7.
Can you change the structure limit in ARK?
Structure limit is 10,500 in a given area. You can build as much as you want on a server, but if you try to go higher than that in one spot, the game won't let you. This can be modified on unofficial servers, which means the limit can be lower or higher if you're not playing on official.
