The Tek Dedicated Storage is a structure in the Tek Tier-building set, released as part of ARK: Homestead major patch.

Overview[]

It is a small-crated Tek-tier storage designed to store bulks of a single item. When an item type is assigned through depositing of the item inside, it will only accept that particular item to storage and nothing else. Perishable items cannot be stored inside the Storage.

Item placed inside will vanish into the storage if given the option to do so while in its menu. If set to withdraw however, it will automatically eject items from its inventory and will not store any inside. Moreover, the storages snap to each other sideways or above/below.

Items with a decay timer cannot be placed into it's inventory and anything with a damage, durability, or armor multiplier will be changed to the primitive values upon being placed inside.

Engram[]

The Engram is unlocked by defeating the Dragon (Beta) on The Island, the Manticore (Beta) on Scorched Earth, Rockwell (Beta) on Aberration, the Desert Titan on Extinction, the Corrupted Master Controller (Gamma) on Genesis and the Crystal Wyvern Queen (Beta) on Crystal Isles. Defeating the more difficult versions will also give the player the engram.

The engram must be unlocked in order to craft this item, but not to use it or equip it.

Notes[]

Bugs[]

  • The stack counter in the inventory of the storage will not account for the StackSizeMultiplier server setting (or custom stack sizes provided by mods) and display the wrong stack count. Also withdrawing a stack will always give you default stack sizes instead of the stack sizes configured on the server. However, the total amount of resources on the outside is correct in those cases.
  • You may run into a bug where you cannot store certain structures like the Reinforced Trapdoor in a Tek Dedicated Storage.

Painting and Color Regions[]

Changelog[]

Patch Changes
309.53 Fixed an issue with Dedicated Storage locking behavior on PvE (Players could withdraw items when it was "locked")
678.45 Refactored Tek Dedicated Storage. This is a rework of the structure for server optimization, it should improve stability across the board due to huge memory savings on large/active servers. It will generally function the same. You can still deposit and withdraw, but there are a few changes to be noted:
  1. You'll now be able to slot cap yourself directly using the Transfer All button when using the dedicated storage and it will ignore your weight.
  2. You'll no longer see an inventory inside the dedicated storage box when opening it, don't worry, your items are still there.
  3. You'll no longer be able to popcorn (Spamming the O to drop items) from the dedicated storage directly, (but you can now transfer a slot cap into your own inventory and popcorn from there).
