How To Join Ark: Roleplay Evolved
So you want to join our amazing community of players and jump into the roleplay and server? Great! There are a few steps needed until you can get ingame and play but this helpful guide will guide you through them one by one! So read along and follow the steps and soon enough you will be ingame RPing and playing your character!
If you haven't already make sure to read both the RULES and the LORE. These are the cornerstones of gameplay on server, influencing how you play, how you roleplay, what you are allowed to do and much more. It is a lot to take in, so if at any point you don't understand something you can message a staff member who will help explain any part of our server or community to you.
Once all read up it's time to try and think of a basic idea for your character and backstory! This must fit within the lore but other than that can be whatever type of character you wish. Players range from cooks, bandits, royalty, slaves and much more! It may also help to look at the SA'EL ISLANDS WIKI where you can find the background for various staff and player created islands, all with their own cultures, landscape, wildlife and more.
Once you have a general idea of who you will play then it's time to whitelist! Whitelisting is our application to play on the server, it allows us to keep the server closed to only those who understand our rules and lore and those who want to roleplay and enjoy themselves. You can apply via the WHITELIST APPLICATION. Again, if you need any help don't hesitate to ask a staff member! Whilst we can't tell you the answers we can help you understand question and hint to the correct solution. Whitelists take between 24-72 hours to be processed and you can find the current status of your application on the same page where you applied.
Whilst waiting for your applications to be processed it is recommended to downloads the server's MOD COLLECTION. This page contains every mod currently running on our servers, by subscribing to them and letting them install it saves you time doing so when connecting once accepted! If you run into any issues with mods or their installation you should make a TROUBLESHOOTING post.
Once your whitelist is accepted you will see a message with information on how to connect to both of our servers. Please note that the whitelist to allow players to join only updates at each restart. Restart times can be found on the frontpage of the website. Once the server has restarted simply connect and boom! Your playing!
Be part of the amazing community we have at ArkRP! Join our teamspeak, join our discord, follow the twitter and engage in discussion on the forum! People enjoy their time here most if they actively engage and socialise with all the other players!
