Structures Plus is a building mod for ARK: Survival Evolved, developed by orionsun. The mod aims to overhaul the current building system in ARK: Survival Evolved, adding new features and structures.



Remote Resource Transference (Grabbing)[]

This tool adds 3 additional buttons and one number input box to the UI of everything with an inventory.[1] It is very useful in moving large quantities of items around i.e. grabbing metal from an Anklyo into an Industrial Forge. These tools will only grab resources from boxes, creatures, and crafting stations that are not in use.

  • The Repair Button [2] grabs the needed resources to repair the selected item.
  • The Craft Button and input box [3] grabs the needed resources to craft the number of the selected engram or blueprint. The input box must contain a number, highlight and overwrite the 1 to get numbers less than 10.
  • The Grab Button [4] can only be used after selecting an item or engram. It pulls up a UI that lists all resources that can be pulled to this inventory. [5] Selecting a resource displays anything nearby that contains said resource. Choose how much you would like, click pull, then click done once you have what you need.


  • All S+ production stations (e.g. Preserving Bin, Forge or Cooker) show all available recipes as blueprints within the station. These blueprints can be selected and used in conjunction with the resource grabbing tool to easily produce food using resources from multiple nearby containers.
    • Note that for S+ Preserving Bins in particular that the recipe blueprint does not automatically pull the additional Sparkpowder Sparkpowder required to power the station.
