ARK: Detailed guide on HOW TO INSTALL MODS

I was having trouble with this until I managed to piece parts of advice together to find out how to do it. This is my guide on how to install and run mods:

Turn your Server Off - You may only need to reset it afterwards but I turn it off for good measure
1. Go to steam workshop
2. Go to what ever mod you like
3. Click the green subscribe button
4. Make sure it's downloaded (there should be a progress bar at the bottom center of steam client)
5. Launch the game (most mods i've seen need the game to be launched before they'll be put in your mod folder)
6. Go to your mod folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ARK\ShooterGame\Content\Mods)
7. ^ Keep it open as you'll need it for the next part
8. Download FileZilla (
9. Install and run it
10. Fill in all the details that Nitrado sent you in the initial/confirmation email (Host+Username+Password+Port)
11. When logged in successfully, your folder should show on the bottom right hand corner
12. Double click on the folder (May take a few seconds to process) Arkse -> Shootergame -> Content -> Mods
13. Select all the FOLDERS and FILES (.mod docs - I use VLC media player and to me they show up as orange cones) that you want in your game
^^^^^(Tip: The Folder and File named: 496735411 is a total conversion mod and is pretty huge, don't include this unless you want to be waiting for ages for the transfer)
14. Drag ALL of them into the same bottom right hand box in the FileZilla program
15. This should then automatically send your mod files to the game server's mod folder, it may take a while and the progress will be shown.
16. Once all the files have been transferred - you should receive confirmation on the top text box of filezilla and the queue should be empty proceed to the next step
17. Go, log in, go to My Services, under webinterface click the rectangle with an arrow in it (this should take you to webinterface, if more text appears instead, just click the option that says webinterface)
18. From here (you should be in your dashboard), go to the top of the webpage where it says NITRADO, to the left are three options, a Speedo, Server and Ark: Survival Evolved.
19. Click on Server and then click on the Settings option.
20. Under Base Settings headline, go to Active Mods (IDs). All the mods you transferred through filezilla should be listed here with their names and IDs (e.g. GateMod (489596581))
21. Just put in the IDs of all the mods you want in your server with commas separating them (e.g. 479929837,501809686,479295136,506506101,497086514)
^^^^^(Tip: Pay careful attention to your mod's description as this may influence what mods will work together or the "PRIORITY" they need to be put in. Priority refers to the order (Left to Right = High to Low)
22. Click the green Save Changes button on the same page (Bottom right hand corner)
23. Wait a few minutes for good measure (3 should be fine)
24. Turn your server on (or if you're a rebel click restart server)
25. Wait, it can take a while for the server to boot back up. It's taken me 5-60m, it seems totally variable but it shouldn't take longer than an hour!
26. Jump on your server - if you get kicked out and are left with the message to make sure all your mods are running up to date versions, then you will need to trial and error which mod is the problem and remove it from your mod list (In the Server -> Settings menu).
27. Profit :D
