Item only mod?

Hey I just signed up and am kinda new to modding. I wanted to make a mod that only adds new items to the game. Mainly I plan on adding more building items of all the current existing material types but they are different. How do I make new building shapes and make sure that they snap properly when connecting them? I might also add I am completely new to this but I do have modeling experience in Maya. If there is already a tutorial for this, direction to that tutorial would be greatly appreciated as well.

make the models and bring them in grab already existing things and edit it same basics as normal :slight_smile: TUTORIALS ARCHIVE (including Video Tutorials!) - ARK: Survival Evolved - Unreal Engine Forums
