How can I change the difficulty on my ARK server?

How to Change the Difficulty on an Ark Server

 Log in to the Server Control Panel

2. On the left menu click Configuration Files then edit GameUserSettings.ini using the text editor

3. Below [ServerSettings] , change the following settings:
OverrideOfficialDifficulty=(Number 1.0-10.0)

DifficultyOffset will be 1 to allow calculating the OverrideOfficialDifficulty to be easier. To determine the OverrideOfficialDifficulty, take the desired max level and divide it by 30.
Example: 150(desired max level)/30 = 5.0 as the OverrideOfficialDifficulty.

4. Choose the blue Save button.

5. Restart your server.
