    Aberration-theisland?

    We definitely care. You know as well as us that the maps got corrupted and we always have said this straight out when it happens. If you had messaged us sooner on the map I would have been able to restore a backup. If we didn't care about our players I wouldn't personally be spending over 170 a month on JR ans putting so much time aside to do things at JR. I need a new car and if I wouldn't have spent the amount of money on JR I wouldn't be taking out a loan right now. Please don't be trying to put so much negativity due to an issue outside of our control (ark crashes and corrupts. This isn't our fault) we put so much work in keeping everyone happy. It upsets me when our players are annoyed, not playing or not chatting about an issue. If people talk and speak out I will sort things as I have on many occasions. I do this to make people smile, to create friendships in the world through games, to give people a safe space to talk and communicate with people. My community is everything to me, its my passion and I hope after reading this that you understand this.

    Taming rate

    While the higher lvls sure take some time, nobody is forced to go for lvl300 right from the start. A lvl50-100 is able to farm the resources for sedatives without any problems. The pain starts with getting max lvls and this should still be some effort. I started with a lvl ~50 trike and made my way up to higher lvls. (lvl40 bronto was next for bigger weight and more berries^^). The only reason to up the taming rate would be passive dinos since it can really take some time... But on the other hand you can grab most dinos and put them into a taming pen so no other dinos disturb you. Get the kibble needed before you go for max lvl and simply invest some work. I can understand why people want higher rates but how many dinos do you tame passive? It's not like you have to tame new dinos every day. Investing 1-2 days (to prepare) to get a male+female and easily breed them (nanny+hatchery = no effort at all to breed) are fair in my opinion.

    New ARK Servers

    Hi Guys, As of this post: We have chatted with the community and we have been working to create a better server. (AS frosty says, tirelessly through the night) - at this moment we are chatting on discord. A few things to note about the new servers: Clustering - Is in beta but working, Please note if when you transfer and your survivor doesn't show right away give it 30 seconds and try and download again. We have installed the following mods to begin with, we will add mod's through suggestions as previously, BUT we will be going through all bug reports and will be checking better to see if any conflicts exist so we do not have an issue with the map as previously. Structures Plus Death Recovery Mod Taming Sedative Backpack We have also updated our mod pack - https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=940316400 Stacking Mod - We have left this out currently due to the fact we can not find a mod without any issues reported. If you can help find a working / better mod let us know Classic Flyers - WE HAVE NOT INSTALLED THIS YET. Due to the following bug reports: https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/discussion/895711211/133261369999910543/ If the community still wants to go ahead and install classic flyers please say below, we just don't want to cause any issues to dinos by installing the mod. Please read the bug reports to see if installing it will affect your game experience. Levelling - Is standard currently, a few reasons to this, I do not want to copy our badly designed level structure, if we are editing levels we need to make the levelling structure better and more balanced than before. Dino Levels - Are standard currently due to the fact normal levelling is in place. I'm sure this will change in time GAIA - For the next week or so this is disabled till I can properly review this. We may continue it, we may remove it. Depends what people want. It's a hefty weight to our server resources but I do not mind keeping it but we will be doing the same but adding GAIA on as well as the other mods chosen. SERVER MAINTENANCE & REBOOT - This has now been changed to run at 12 at night and also 12 midday to ensure the servers update mods and have a good restart when necessary We want to provide the most stable experience in ARK and we really hope you understand why we have only selected certain mods to begin with. We will be adding more but at the same time we want to ensure that it doesn't cause us another issue like before.

    Taming speed

    The idea is that you tame lower level dinos before moving onto taming the higher level dinos as that way the server offers more progression to players who have invested a lot of time into the servers

    We do care, however in previous instances the maps have become corrupted so ark has reset the map. Then as no one has informed us of the map being reset, we lose the backups of the map before if was reset so we are unable to restore the maps. The key to sorting these issues is communication and as I have burnt out from Ark I don't keep an eye if the servers have had their maps reset. We now have a system in place that allows us to keep backups for a longer time so if the map does get reset again in the future we should be able to revert to an old version.

    Hi Guys, A bit of feedback from the community asked if we could try these mods: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1286452614&searchtext=dlc https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=870709781 We agreed to give this a shot, we are currently rebooting all servers to activate these 2 mods on all servers. Please note this is a trial, any issues with the mods and we may remove them. We hope you enjoy the latest additions at JR ARK!

    Hi everyone, following the release of minecraft 1.13 I think it is best to let everyone know what is going on with updating JRCraft to minecraft 1.13. This update is one massive update, it is the same as minecraft going from version 1.8 to 1.12 in one update (basically all updates between 1.8 and 1.12 being released as one mega update). It contains a lot of changes to the game and the game server, which requires a lot of effort from the guys working on Spigot. What do we know already? Spigot has some early builds available for 1.13 but we aren't going to use these as they are experimental and more for plugin developers to update their plugins and for developers in the community to help write the code for the server software 1.13 changes the way some plugins have to interact with the server, as a result we may see some plugins not be updated for a long while All plugins will likely break due to this update (we can update the important ones ourselves if the need arises, or look for alternatives to what we already use) Block IDs are no longer being used by Spigot to closely mirror vanilla minecraft, while developers have known about this since December 2017 and work has been on going for this block rework in Spigot for 4 years, so before bukkit was shut down I believe. What's going to happen to X plugin? At the moment we are more concerned with the main plugins we use to help administer the server and provide grief protections. While there will certainly be a ban plugin, block logging plugin of some description for 1.13 we have a preference to just update the ones we already have in place. I expect World Guard & World Edit to be updated as soon as we get a stable build for spigot 1.13. LWC will likely be fine as it is already using the way to deal with blocks. My main concern lies with the plugins we use to sync ranks between the server and the forum and logblock. As these are some of the most important plugins we have. We are hoping that these plugins do get updated, or we may resort to try and update them ourselves, especially the plugin that links the forum to the server as that is how all permissions are handled. We will try to keep as many plugins as we can, ones that cannot be kept will be replaced with ones that have equal or better functionality. Unless we get an update for it, this might be the end of the stargate plugin 😕 (due to the changes in block handling) Also as a sidenote, dynmap is currently not coming back because it eats disk space worse than chrome eats RAM. Do you have a timeframe? Currently we do not, we will update the server at the earliest time when it is safe to do so. This will ensure that we can provide the best experience to our players. We know it's a pain of a process to go through, but every server is going through a similar thing right now all we can do for the time being is wait for the stuff we need to be updated. We may look into running a testing server for our premium members so they can help test the stability of the server once an update has been released and the functionality of plugins if they do not receive updates

    Unfortunately this hits very very close to home: Maybe if people's heads weren't buried in the sand of ignorance and they took the time to understand, instead of judging and thinking it won't happen to them because they have the perfect family, life would be a little bit easier for people that do experience this! This hits close to home for me, for family and friends who live under this shadow. The days of 'it' not being talked about or being taboo should be over. In the most difficult moments of life you realize who your true friends are, and the people who really appreciate you. Unfortunately, most social media 'friends' aren't true friends. They will send you a "like" here and there, but in reality they do not take time to read your status if they see it's lengthy. More than half will stop reading right here, or have already scrolled on to the next post on their page. I decided to post this message in support of all those who continue to battle with their mental illness. Now, let's see who will have taken the time to read this lengthy post right through to the end. If you have read everything so far, please "like" it so that I can put a thank you on your page. More mental health awareness is urgently needed. Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean people aren't suffering. Please, try to spare a little of your time with someone who may just want to talk (about anything). Talking can help us all to cope a little more, keeping things bottled up just makes it worse. Most people will say, "if you need anything, don't hesitate to call me, I'll be there to help you" but will they? I believe a select few of my friends will post this, to show their support for those who may be struggling. You just have to copy and paste rather than sharing. I'd like to know who will take a minute out of their day to read this all the way to the end and then copy and paste it to their page, will you? If so, please write "done" in the comments.

    Multi selection mod for ark

    since i don't play Ark, im not much use but id say yes as long as this is what players are wanting. They seem non intrusive mods anyways so i don't see any harm in adding them.

    Tree houses!

    I randomly found this mod for tree houses https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1362463382 I've been thinking about creating a sick tree house base but haven't really tried it since it's kind of difficult but I think it'd be easier + more fun, with this mod. Whatcha all think? I'd love to see this mod on the gaia server

    Community written story

    We should write story together. Each post must be a continuation of the previous reply or the start of a new chapter. Im thinking science fiction of course. @QwertyCore care to join in? Il start it off with something i quickly came up with. I have no title or no direction just an initial paragraph to get us started --------------------------------------------------- They came from a dark and desolate land of unknown origin to escape the horrors of war that had been inflicted on them for millennia. A warring race that could never seem to make peace with each other. Bloodshed in the name of their gods. Massive ships with a colour so black, it seemed to absorb all light and plunge the surroundings into darkness. This is how they arrived or at least thats what we are taught.

    We are trialling a new experience for our players, as suggested to me by @Emma We are testing out this mod: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1125442531 This is on a entirely different cluster, so therefore items can not be transfered back and forth, capitlism, cross aberration and the stargate mod are also not on this server. This is just a trial but we welcome the community to see what they think on this new experience. If you'd like to join the link will appear soon on our game server list https://jrnetwork.net/servers/ PLEASE NOTE, TO PLAY YOU WILL REQUIRE THE GAIA MOD AND THE VOLCANO MAP WHICH MAY TAKE A LITTLE TIME TO DOWNLOAD BEFORE ENTRY DEPENDING ON YOUR INTERNET AND PC HARDWARE https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1125442531 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=715028562

    I haven't had chance to do much to our ARK servers lately, today I have done the following: Increased dino levels up to 350 on every server Removed kibble table as the current version is broken and was causing issues in learning different engrams Optimized a few things We are looking at moving ARK to a different control panel soon which will help with moderation, but there is slow progress on this due to the fact ARK does not like having a proper console. We are looking at different ways to improve our ark servers, if you have any more suggestions please share them at https://suggest.jrnetwork.net/
