The settings located inside ARK allow you to change what the day and night cycle is according to your preference. You can also set it up that one real-life 24h.
The first step is to go to Scalacube.com and log in to your account.
Click on "Servers" and then click on "Manage server"
Click "Manage" again.
Turn off your server by clicking on "Turn off" and wait for the process to finish.
Click on "Settings".
Locate "GameUserSettings.ini" and enter it.
Find "DayCycleSpeedScale", "DayTimeSpeedScale" and "NightTimeSpeedScale".
DayCycleSpeedScale setting controls how often the day changes to night and the night changes to day. Values lower than the default 1 slow down the cycle, and higher values accelerate it.
If you want it to match real-life hours, change it to 0.035.
DayTimeSpeedScale setting controls the passage of time during the day. It determines the length of each day. Lowering it will increase the length of the day.
NightTimeSpeedScale setting controls the passage of time during the night. It determines the length of each night. Lowering it will increase the length of the night.
Once the changes are set, click on "Change" and "Reboot" your server.
