Last years 2nd place:
Second place went to Automated Ark another great mod, this time designed to save you time on tedious tasks, giving you more time for taming or raiding.
Automated Ark adds new functionality to the game allowing mundane tasks such as filling crop plots or feeding troughs for you, meaning you have more time playing the more enjoyable aspects of the game.
This is just a quick reminder; modders spend their own time making mods and improvements to games for you, many of which will have links to Patreon or other similar sites. Please support mod creators when you can!
Remember, they aren’t getting paid to make mods, they are doing it for their love of games and the community.
