My Armada on a Ragnarok Map. Done on the Gamepass version of Ark, PC/X1.
No mods, just boosted server settings for raft structure limits and resource gathering.
In this image, there are 26 crafts - including boats, helicopters, and submarines.
All 26 crafts are "attached" to only 5 Rafts! (1 wooden raft, 4 motorboats.)
I used the trick to extend the platforms using ceilings and snapping floors under - but then i removed the ceilings/floors between the actual raft and where I wanted to make a small boat. Since the Floor Foundations remain floating and attached, we can build off of them - allowing us to make mini fleets! Cool eh?
The helicopters are also only attached to the boats. They cannot fly up or down, or away from the raft on their own. They just stay with it, which is still pretty neat.
Search Youtube for "Ark helicopter tutorial" and find my video to show how it's done if you want to know the tricks!
