Following the reply from Mike that steam workshop is not yet fully implemented for ARK I would like to request this to be added as it makes it really cumbersome to manage the server without this working.

Here is an open source ark server tool which handles this - according to forums, not yet tested it myself - perfectly. Maybe the approach they take can help you guys implement it in AMP: https://github.com/FezVrasta/ark-server-tools

This is planned. Basically the Steam Workshop stuff is actually part of the common SteamCMD plugin rather than module specific, so some extra work needs to be done on a per-module basis to figure out what to do with the actual downloaded data after its been obtained.

Hi Mike,

I think the only thing that is required is a look at the way you guys install the server and on how the folders are generated/linked. Following the issues I had with AMP I now installed LinuxGSM and it worked right out of the box using the -automanagedmods parameter which comes natively with the ARKserver package and addition of mod list in the Game.ini.
