“Why is my airship taking damage?”

If your airship is taking damage upon reset of your server, you will need to disable the setting:

“Nothing is powered on my airship!!”
The airship is a work in progress, currently there is a known bug where nothing on the airship will be powered even with a generator or electrical device close to it. This is a feature of ark, and has to due with the way platforms work.

“How do I make steam?”

Take any container, fill it with water, put it inside the steam generator’s inventory. Then use the water from the generators inventory. This will start the process, if it stops you just need to repeat the process, and or add a new liquid filled container and use it from the inventory of the steam generator.

“How do I turn this thing on?”

The Airship, Balloons, Steam bot, Submarine all use “Oil Barrels” once you have oil in the machines inventory get into the machine. One you are in, or on the machine hit the “O” key to turn it “On”.

Steampunk armor, is intended to be a step before TEK armor, and after metal. Steampunk armor is based around utility and purpose, It is not intended to make you a walking terminator. To make steampunk armor stronger than TEK armor, would make TEK armor useless, this is not the intended purpose of steampunk armor.

The helmet gives underwater vision, and breathing.
The chest gives weight reduction.
The hands give you damage resistance.
The feet give you a speed boost when SHIFT + R is held.
