Current Features
  • Permission based timed decay (based on tribe inactivity not material based tiers)
  • Rapid Decay feature to remove small cluttered structures faster then full decay timers with other configurable criteria
  • Instant Decay feature that will remove specific structures you specify with other configurable criteria
  • Complete removal of Structures, Dinos, Players (no random bags or vaults left over)
  • Logging (api log and discord)
  • Unclaimed dino decay
  • Manual or Automatic decay option for Normal and Rapid decay
  • Server Performance Monitoring allows for real-time decision making to prevent large base decay lag while players are online.

RCON/Console Commands
lethaldecay.tribe <tribeid> - Manually forces a tribe into decay mode
lethaldecay.reload - Reloads the config
lethaldecay.list - Lists tribes that are ready to be decayed if using manual decay instead of auto decay.
lethaldecay.pause - Will pause further decay activity and you will be reminded every 60 seconds if paused (current decay queue will be completed still)
lethaldecay.check <tribeid> - Check decay status for a tribeid
lethaldecay.rapid - Manually triggers the Rapid Decay System to start running before its automated time
lethaldecay.last <tribeid> - will show the last tribe member login with timestamp with the highest decay timer

RCON Commands
lethaldecay.instant - remove specific structures players leave littered around the map.
lethaldecay.shortlist - outputs an entry for all tribes set to decay within 48 hours to the Tribe Log, API Log and Decay Webhook.
  • I suggest using Rcon Scheduler or whatever tool you use to run scheduled rcon command daily.

Chat Commands
/decaytime - Allows checking tribe decay times while looking at a tribe owned structure
  • command will show normal or rapid decay time depending on the config rules for rapid decay

One license is limited to a single physical server, so multiple ark servers running on the same machine (HWID) would only need 1 license.
