The future of ark servers?

Recommended Posts

Hello,
Now that the holidays are over, how will the sequel go for the upgrade of the ARK servers, with the mods?

As for example add these: Classic Flyer, Super spyglass, More Narc & Tranq, Upgrading station, Dino Pick up and Pearl Converter.
These are all small mods, very useful and many people do not come back here because of the lack of some of them. 😭

Because the servers run very well without too much trouble, and no more crashes 😍

and know when the dinos would go back to level 300 in wild =)? 😊 (for more difficulties and fun)

Apologies I'm having a hard time with a few things recently. In relation to our ARK servers we will review some mods to install but we are not putting everything back as before as it will just cause another issue similar to what we have just resolved. We don't want to have a crashing experience and as you said there has not been problems as of late. 

Please confirm a few of the mods that you'd like to see added and we will put a poll after reviewing mods that are okay and don't show any issues in the reviews / bug section.

 

Thanks

The biggest problem was "cross aberation" because it was only installed on one map. and he was not a stable mod.

CrossArkPlus - https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1295535244 (the megalania on "the island" are bug in cave walls. -> so hard to do the megapithecus)

this mod is used to transfer APEX items, which can not be transferred from base.

it's not that I'm impatient or that I do not know how to give people time, but after more than a month not even a little poll ...
I know that everyone has a life but you lose more and more people, and many only melted in a gust of wind because no admin is connected to ark and even no event.
for the event I understand (it's a server pve), but we have not a lot of difficulty, not even the dinos lvl 300 we had before? ... in addition the alpha does not exceed lvl 40-60. (not cool and no fun very easy)
I've been here for a long time because I like JR here, but I'm "tired of it".

Friendly Marcusf

Hey Marcus :)

I understand your frustration with the things have been going recently and we all feel the same. We want to see JR succed and prosper. However Jamie has fallen on some hard times recently finanically and in his personal life too. Jamie started a go fund me at the beginning of the month to help the switch to new servers for JR which are cheaper than what Jamie currently pays for them. The goal was successfully met and Jamie is in the process of setting them up now. Once we complete this transition onto the new hardware, we will be working on our servers with a renewed effort in improving them for all members.

 

Thanks,

Chris :D

We will look at certain mods to see the status of them soon. We will not be adding mods that are not required for play. 

Cross ark mods will not be implemented due to issues that may arise, unless classic flyers sorts the bugs I will not be installing it again. It causes a huge increase in server load and causes issues constantly with dino overspawning.

Level 300 dinos we can add but it's not just a quick job saying let's level them, the last time we did this we then had to up all the player levels with custom levels which also made more headache than was worth. 

Classic flyer bug reports are here for reference:

https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/discussion/895711211/133261369999910543/

  • Wyverns/Pelas/Quetzals overspawning all over the place? This is what we've termed the overspawn issue. Particular species of dinos overspawning on a map is a core-game issue that can happen when any remap mod, like this one, is used. It is a recognized bug by WC but is not considered a priority fix by them. Please see the FAQ and Changes to CF's Culling System discussion for more information on the overspawn issue and how CF corrects for it.

This bug is a headache and while there is a culling system that can be used, load is still increased and I have found that culling does not work all the time.

I understand quite for classic flyer, but a lot of server with 20 + mod to 9000 days always runs.
it's just something I do not understand too much.

a team of 4-5 players on ragnarok left a week ago because it was missing this mod and that of upgrading station (for more fun), in just a few days they were already with a big base which 1/3 of the base in tek.
it's a shame to lose people especially a big part.

I had to talk with a future addition (possible when you have time) where my call today (late), they left for a server with mod creature (primal fear or Ark eternal - something in the genre), hence my call at the level of the dinos to avoid a too big mod. (although interesting.

something new, other than classic flyer

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1685878678

and another

this is an interesting mod, making the high level dino spawn, adapt to other mod raising the level of wild dinos.
