hello i am working on setting up an ark server cluster i need to give my instances access to an external directory that they can all see i see in config under file manager that you can do this i do not see any documentation on how i have looked through 40 pages of search results and do not see anything i want home/amp/.ampdata/clusterdata to map to vds/arkSE/376030/ShooterGam/Saved/clusterdata

any link to documentation or help to do this would be great

thanks much

i sort of figured it out the clusterid field doesnt seem to do anything though

key = name of virtual directory value = path to real directory

virtual directory always shows up in root of the instance

clusterid= does not seem to work in the gameusersettings.ini it does however work if you put it in the custom flags or custom settings under config>server i just cant seem to get ark to save in the virtual directory that i added. the command -ClusterDirOverride= doesnt like the added directory i have tried /clusterdata/ and VDSclusterdata with no luck, underscores are not showing on either side of vds so close
