    A hard decision

    Ever since my friends invited me onto this server, I started playing on it daily, I started to learn the names of the members and staff, Learned the way that JR wants to run. I joined the server at the age of 13/14. Played on it to this very day. When I got to talking to staff often, I started wanting to help JR grown and be a better community. I would stay on all night while all the EU staff were sleeping, and take screen shots of people cursing, cheating, or griefing. (being a tattle tale) I tried everything I could to become apart of the staff. It was my dream goal to one day be wearing a red name tag in the Minecraft server under "Admin". I maybe tried too hard to become staff as I would try and beat the staff to the problem and try to fix it myself. Posted on forums to try and get activity up. I tried all I could, attended every meeting. The day came on my 16th birthday I could apply for helper. I was so happy, It took a few days for them to look over it but finally I was accepted as a Helper. I was the happiest guy alive. Then I continued to strive to work up the ranks and do my best and help the Owner, Admins, and Mods in anyway I could. When I was promoted to Grief Police at the time, was another amazing day for me, I ran around my house (literally) to get my excitement out of the way. Grief Police was later merged into Moderator, Which is where I stand. I have thought about this for many days. This might be the hardest thing I have ever had to do. There comes a point in our lives where we all must say goodbye to something, someone, or some place that we love. It's never easy. But today I must make one of those hard goodbyes, Today is the day I feel I must step down from management. There are a few reasons for this. First, my current life situation doesn't give me a whole lot of time to be active enough to help and support the server/community. Second, I joined this community for the Minecraft aspect, and as I feel the majority of the community is now past the Minecraft aspect. I feel there is not much for me to do here. Third, I don't really offer any help anymore. Everything JR as a whole needs help with from staff is either beyond my abilities or in games that I do not own or play. I will never forget this amazing time I have had here, nor will I ever leave the community. This will always be my home, staying up late talking to members and staff. Getting to know such amazing people. Everyone here has had a place in my heart since I got to know them. All the staff were so helpful and caring. I have never had bad times being here. I have always had people to rely on and count on to pick me up when I'm feeling down. I will always recommended this place to anyone as it is nothing but inspiration. So many amazing unique people. I wish I coulda done more for the server but I did what I was capable of doing. This my last post as staff at JR. I will always remember and love this place. I hope one day I will be able to bring my daughter to come play here. ❤️ People that I want to thank specifically: Serena, Djexecute, Noni, JuggaGirl, Chris, harsol, kickyabutt24, Barbermiss, Mrcoconut2012, AnioNovus, p4ck3ts3nd3r, Risen Havoc, UploadGFX, Daisuke, Lightning Potatoe People that really made an impact on me: Sophie and Frosty. I am sorry if I forget anyone, there were a lot of people so many years ago that were so fun to talk to and play with. Most importantly thank you Jamie for making this a thing and keeping it going even in rough times. I wish I coulda done more to support financially. But thank you for making this all possible I will not forget you.

    My advice for the JR supplydrop would be: Dino's: 5 Dinos currently owned by players to take with you (including current dino lvl) 5 Cryopods 1 saddle per chosen dinos Utility: 200 cooked meat 500 narcotics 250 stimulant 50 taming sedative 20 element Gear: 1-2 Metal Hatchet 1-2 Metal Pick 1-2 Metal sickle 1 Metal pike 1 shotgun 50 shotgun rounds 1 Crossbow 50 arrows 1 set of flak gear 1 backpack (if still used) 1 Canteen Buildings: 16 foundations 1 dino gate 1 dino gateway 16 Ceilings 56 Walls 1 vault 1 upgrade station + attachments (if still used) This should let ppl have a decent start without giving to much of a head start to newer players. Please review the list and let me know what you guys think. Maybe some stuff needs to be removed or added.

    New game events

    Hello Everyone! First of all I'd like to thank Jamie and the rest of the staff for this opportunity and their support. I'd like to start off by saying that if anyone ever needs help with anything or sees me online, feel free to introduce yourself. I don't mind the company at all. Now to get to the point, I plan to start creating events on a regular basis where the winner gets to be rewarded. I can assure you that the reward will be decent and something useful, but most importantly, my aim is to make the events relaxing yet fun, where we can all just join a server have a laugh, joke around and make the best of the time we'd have during that event. Keep in mind that in order to get this going I will need as much feedback as possible. So I'm going to ask you to let me know which server you'd like to see an event happen on. Any ideas will also be welcomed and appreciated. I currently have some plans for events on both Conan Exiles & Ark however if anyone is more interested to see events on other servers please let me know so that we can start working on them and get this going on, With your feedback and support I'll be doing my best to get an event happening once every week if possible. Also for those interested, I'll probably be recording/streaming the events in case anyone misses the events and would like to see what happened. Thank you & hope to see you guys in game soon!

    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.

    Guys, Its been a week, we don't want to fully rush things and as I stated to @Snowball privately I wouldn't have time till the start of the week to make any more movement. You guys have to understand I work a full 40 hour a week job have many more responsibilities than just JR. JR of course has admins to help at any times they can but we all have a life. I'd understand if this was dragged out 2, 3 weeks without any staff input on the topic but we have been posting when we have chance. Restarting an entire ark cluster isn't a two second job. I have many checks internally to complete before I do this as I want to ensure this does not happen again. Please stay patient our new ARK servers will be operational at some point during the start of next week i imagine. Just remember i pay big money for our servers out of my back pocket and we work on JR when possible. Unfortunately sometimes life gets in the way and I hope you can understand this. JR isn't a quick and easy thing to run, to run correctly I do more behind the scenes than people actually are aware. We run Linux servers for a reason but that also complicates some things. Things aren't like your computer such as clicking one button to install things. There is a lot of automation to keep things running while I am away and this has to be all setup before things are put in place. As for this week it took me a few days to sort a serious issue on our servers that caused major issues with how our servers were running. In relation to this ARK install I want to make things easier for our admins to manage the server so I will be looking at a new way of integrating ARK in to our panel. This will take a few days in it self of testing to ensure everything works as intended. Please again remain patient we will be working very hard on this when I get back so JR ARK will exceed your expectations and be a way better experience than in the past few weeks

    We don't need ACM, it's a convenience thing; that is more of an inconvenience these days as it doesn't work 95% of the time. Also can you narrow your list of essentials down to 3 mods, we are trying to start off small to ensure maximum compabitility between the mods used.

    Reading @MarcusFaren's and @Snowball's posts they both raise certain points. Mods do add new IDs for stuff, however if they are created properly as clean and stackable mods it wouldn't matter about moving dinos from one server that doesn't have the mod to one that does. They should revert to standard vanilla dinos. For example we could uninstall Classic Flyers right now and all your dinos would still be there, just they would no longer be classic flyer versions of the dinos they would revert to vanilla. As far as I'm aware the Aberration and Scorched Earth mods were installed on the appropriate servers and assumed to be clean and stackable, we also had to rush to install them as the last mods we were using for the engrams got pulled from the workshop randomly and stopping people from connecting to the servers. If we do a supply drop as opposed to allowing transfers we would be able to provide downloads to the old maps so that people would be able to play them locally if they wished. We will also realease the mod list so you could carry on with these worlds on your own local game. On @IAMSNOWMAN's concerns about this just being a map reset, we should be setting up a completely new set of servers from scratch to ensure no files are carried over. @heaven I understand what you're going through, you're new to the game and don't want to lose all that you've worked for. However you could look at this in another light, taking all that you've learned so far to improve how you play the game when you start fresh. I found that when playing ark to begin with it was handy to start over as I found better ways to do things and had an idea of what I needed to survive. As the map randomly resetting isn't going to stop overnight, we need to take drastic action to fix this as it is happening so much. I completely understand that you don't want to lose your work, no one does. As we are compensating players with 5 dinos we can make these utility dinos to help you with resource gathering.

    It's great to have you on the team @N3RV3. If people are not aware @N3RV3 is in charge in creating events with the community whether its group meet ups or events with rewards. I dont have any time to do this so it will be good for us to have a dedicated person. I'm glad to have selected @N3RV3 for this, expect brilliant things. I'm up for any events that you the community want and I'll be sure to join in on everything that I can, when I'm not working.

    Jr valguero- map reset?

    Hey all, I just wanted to make a short post to update you all that although it may seem that most items have been lost in ARK, don't worry! we're currently working to resolve this. It seems that following from the recent Ark update, all server configurations have been wiped. However, we do have backups and will be reloading these later this evening. Until then, the server has been closed. Sorry for the inconvenience which this has caused and we'll update you once this has been resolved!

    Cool base locations on ark: valguero

    I figured it would be useful to have a guide when it comes to building locations on the new map Valguero, however this does not mean that I've fully explored the whole map. There might still be cool area which I've yet to come across. Some of these area I heard of from others, some I found online and others I've come across by accident while exploring the map looking for resource & animal locations. To start off, the best Spawn Location is Small Islands, the reason being that it's considered as a Herbivore island, with basic resources to start off and relatively safe from any raptors or other carnivores which is known to roam other spawning locations. All Spawn Locations can be found below: Base Location 1 - Estimated Coordinates are 85 Lat 86 Lon This area is quite large, easily accessible with plenty of resources around. Few carnivores around and if you're using this area you shouldn't get bothered by them. There's plenty of room for those who would like to add to the current structure and expand outwards. Base Location 2 - Estimated Coordinates are 81 Lat 80 Lon This area is practically an open cave. There's resources all around, good flat area to build on, covered from at least 3 sides including above you, it is easy to access, however Carnos, Allos & Raptors are seen in the vicinity.. Base Location 3 - Estimated Coordinates are 79 Lat 82 Lon This is a nice flat island surrounded by cliffs & waterfalls on 3 sides. There is a decent amount of basic resources, relatively safe although some carnivores can be spotted around the area. For those with imagination, there's a lot of possibilities and opportunities to expand this area. Dino wise, there are only two narrow areas to pass from or dropping from above which will end up in the water. Base Location 4 - Estimated Coordinates are 79 Lat 66 Lon This area is only accessible with flyers. It is relatively safe with a rare spawn of a raptor among other herbivores. Nice are to build in, flat and surrounded by water, however dinos can drop from above which will practically land on or inside your base. There's very few resources inside but can be found close by once you get out of the hole. Base Location 5 - Estimated Coordinates are 62 Lat 11 Lon For those who have seen Lord of the Rings before, I consider this area as Helm's Deep. This can be accessed from 2 areas which can easily be closed off by putting gates. There's enough room inside to build a good base and plenty of room outside to store some dinos around. On the left side there's water supply with enough room for a green house & a large tree for platform & tree sap. Outside the area plenty of terror birds have been seen however it is easy and possible to expand further. Basic Resources are abundant, metal, crystal and other resources I've yet to look around more. Base Location 6 - Estimated Coordinates are 46 Lat 87 Lon This area is found close to the swamp, and it is a bit annoying to reach, however it is quite safe. The only visible issue is the lack of space for those who enjoy building large bases. There's plenty of resources including a couple of metal nodes as well. Quite easy to close of and enough room to store dinos and build a decent base. Base Location 7 - Estimated Coordinates are 37 Lat 81 Lon A small area which is easily protected from other wild dinos. Although there is not enough room to build a whole lot, it is an easy location from where to expand further around. accessible only by the 2 bridges, plenty of water around, crystal can be found close by and enough room to build a small base and store a couple of dinos. Area around is quite flat with room for expansion. Base Location 8 - Estimated Coordinates are 37 Lat 90 Lon This large Castle is quite safe. No aggressive dinos have been seen around the area. It is accessible either by flyers or a cave like entrance below the bridge, however only small dinos can pass through, other dinos need to be carried or teleported to the castle. There are plenty of rooms and floors to build in and any holes can be covered up or used as an extra entrance to the castle. Not a whole lot of room for large dinos & metal nodes are yet to be found, however it's a good location for those who like a challenge as there's room for improvement and expansion. Base Location 9 -Estimated Coordinates are 63 Lat 50 Lon This is personally my favorite area to build in especially in PVE. There's a very large flat area for those who like to build large structures, considerably safe as barely any carnivores have been seen in this location. Easy access to water with enough room for water dinos as well. Easy to close off and protect from wild dinos. Plenty of resources around. Metal & Crystal are close by, especially with a flyer. Base Location 10 - Estimated Coordinates are 76 Lat 48 Lon This location has plenty of resources and the trees around can be easily used to build platforms and link them together for further space. the castle can be fixed leaving enough room to build a small starting area. There's also enough room around to expand a bit more as well. Basic resources are abundant however it is a bit dangerous as carnos and troodons have been seen in the area. Other cool Locations for those who enjoy building inside caves: First Cave - Estimates Coordinates are 37 Lat 90 Lon I've looked around and even though it has two entrances I couldn't find a walk way to this cave. As far as I know it is only accessible by a flyer, however there's plenty of room inside and both entrances can be closed off if desired. Basic resources in the area are abundant. The inside of the cave: Second Cave - Estimated Coordinates are 33 Lat 10 Lon There are 2 entrances to this cave , both are found behind the waterfall. one at the bottom of the cliff the other at the top. There's plenty of room to build on the outside and a huge area to build on the inside. The cave itself has a lot of metal nodes rock nodes and crystal, on the outside there's a decent amount of wood. Slightly dangerous to start off but can be easily closed off and defended from wild dinos. Inside the cave you have access to the deep water with plenty of room for waters dinos & breeding as well. The water area seems safe however I haven't been able to explore that further as it's huge. So far my favorite cave to build in as you have almost access to everything with enough room to build large buildings. Inside the Cave: Feel free to let me know if you've found better locations. Thanks & hope this helps. The below is a location of a farm if anyone is looking for free access to potatoes and carrots. Estimated Coordinates are 55 Lat 50 Lon

    Not trying to offend any one. I do respect people's voluntary input. But responding on a forum doenst realy take a lot of time? After dropping the issue "bomb", there is no point in playing Ark. About the rushing part?. We are waiting nicely, and it would be nice to keep us updated? I totally agree with Snowball. Add the new server and let us start. Cause no one knows how long we need to wait politely. Then the staff can sort the problems and we can do something aswell.

    This is going to sound a bit like a rant but the post above is striking a bit of a nerve. Please keep in mind that all i want is for the ARK cluster to thrive. Something i feel this recent issue is not helping at all. Let me start off by saying: Rushing is a non-discussion since its been almost a week... Most of the data required has been supplied by the community so far, not by the JR staff. This is ofcourse not a problem but now that action is required by the staff we hear nothing outside of a couple we are working "hard" on this issue. Something i find highly unlikely considering the responses and input. I always liked playing at JR and the active role the admins normally had in the community. This issue has risen alot of concerns on my end and is making me rethink wether i would like to keep waiting .... word of advice: Maybe next time make sure there is enough time on hand for a followup action when announcing something as impactfull as this.

    I would like to express a bit of concern about the JR ARk servers. As someone that has done most of the legwork for this decision, despite not having any issues myself, i feel like there is no sence of urgency on the JR staff side. Since the announcement on tuesday the ARK servers have been empty. Like Heaven mentioned in the post above this one, can we get this issue sorted before we lose all ARK players on this cluster? Adding the new server and letting people start on that one while you sort the other ones would have resolved this days ago.

    I agree with Marcus but might i add that S+ should be exampt from the choice (thus starting with 4 mods) since this is such a well known and very highly used mod on alot of servers. This mod has been tried and tested. If we go by my idea,, i would add More Narc & Tranq aswell since this (in combination with marcus's modlist) will give people the best chance at rebuilding quickly. @Jamie @Chris Where do we post proof of the 5 dinos?

    Daily dinowipe

    Hallo Forum When i first joined the ark server ragnarok and the island had daily wild dino wipes.. Snce a few months the servers are not getting a wild dino wipe every day. So it basicly means u have to go around with a transmitter search for all the dinos and kill them all if u want high lvls to spawn. Duo to having to work 6 days a week and not having that much time left for games, is it possible to start doing wild dino wipes again when the server restarts at night ? Rick ( jeremy winterspoon )

    I'll wait to see what other people think about this, Reason this was removed was due to reports on certain dinos not getting a chance to spawn and then when they did they would be wiped.

    The future of ark servers?

    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) Marcus

    I've taken a look at this, and for some reason you seemed to be stuck in the cluster, it looked like you had entered an obelisk / terminal and the game got stuck. I'm not sure why this would have happened. I have restored your arkprofile from our backup system, on login you should have access to your profile now. Please let me know if this is resolved so I can close this forum topic. @heaven Enjoy your day, - Rebel

    There is little player to develop on Ragnarok. (there are more on ragnarok than on all the server groups (but some are new players) our biggest bases are on the island and extinction, and you ask us to choose between those precisely I understand the financial worries if I did not have one too, I will already have to pay money here. but i can only choose the island because our dinos and main resources if found. but on extinction @heaven plays it most often ... hard to choose. go on to extinction and the island and you will understand by seeing our work has been long. the cluster shrinks and that's what made me come here to play our tribe compose of 5 members (4 originally played since the restart @MarcusFaren @heaven @Snowball @Wraith) still hundreds of hours that will be spoiled 😭 as they are new server we will have to start all over again? @Chris

    It's a sad time to see you go, But I understand exactly what you are going through personally and I understand why you have to make this choice. JR wouldn't be where it was without you, I hope you remain an active member with our community and if ever there was a time that you'd like to become staff again I will reinstate you without delay. While you haven't had much to do currently it's due to my fault, I'm going through quite a bit of stuff to properly run JR. I want to apologise about that. I'm not going to make this a big thing about me. Again, thanks a million and I hope you do continue to be an active member to the JR community

    As you guys know our ARK servers are constantly resetting after reboots. This seems to be due to a corrupt ARK map and on update / restart it resets the map randomly. I need ideas on how to resolve this issue with you guys, I do not want to reset the map or take off mods but to stop all this happening it may have to be the case. The main problem we have is that the map highly revolves around Structures Plus and Small Resource Stacks. If we remove these mods a lot of structures will be lost and all items will be lost due to the way the small resource stacks works. I have a funny feeling that something is conflicting. I can't diagnose or find this out due to the following: ARK has crap linux support All our servers are linux, we can not afford more servers ARK has no logging for linux servers in any way. I feel that the best plan of action is the following: Remove all mods, entirely. Reset all maps, clean out game save files to ensure nothing corrupted stays Have a huge supply drop for our members that have stayed at JR to compensate. The drop will be the same to ensure that people will start at the same level. Gift 5 dinos to each player that has played on our ARK servers for more than 2 hours (we can check due to our JR Website logs) Add one mod a week to see if it causes a problem, we will only use tried and tested mods with a high rating. While I have this plan it may or may not take place, I want your view. The community. How would you feel starting again? It would mean that everyone would be able to find new land, it may draw more players on to the server, resources would be once more balanced and we would all be happier with a stable server. I hate that our server is stable all day but then when it updates due to the corruption it resets the map and peoples things get lost and we look like the bad party. We want to do the best for you guys at JR. If you have any other ideas please let me know, don't be quite. SPEAK UP! I want everyones view as this is a huge decision and while I understand some members will be upset at the thought of loosing everything. It's something I do not want to have to do but I feel that this resetting bug has gone on long enough. We just want our community happy in the long run. We can't keep patching over problems, I'm not going to lie, I don't have another solution that I can think of right now, this would 100% sort the issue I'm sure. Again let me know what you think, please!

    Just to clarify my previous post: Because the reset is, according to you, the solution to the current problem, people are ok with the one time reset. The problem with this is that people dont want a regular reset, atleast the ones i have spoken to (and since confirmed by Jamie). As a side note: As one of the more active people on the JR servers I ofcourse know JR is not a pvp server but when implementing your idea, you might aswell just turn on pvp.

    For pro players its pretty decent i assume. But i am a new player. Cryopods and an upgrading post, i cant yet use?. The only usefull stuff for a new player is basicly the pick,sickle, hatchet, pike and bow. I understand the problem. And it seems inevitably. But it does work a little demotivating for me. I finally was busy building fun stuff. Deleting everything will be bringing me back to the day i bought Ark and started playing the first day. I dont have the knowledge like you pro players yet. You all will be back up in no time. But as a new player it will take me a while to get where i am at the moment.

    @MarcusFaren as you are aware we run quite a few servers, If we are not aware of this within a week or so from members we can not be held responsible. We try our upmost best for our community. Ark is a pain in the backside, it's not just us having issues with map resets it seems to happen to many ARK servers. I will see about extending our backups for 2 weeks but we are limited a lot on space due to the fact I can not afford to pay for another server. It upsets me when this happens as in the end of the day I want to make sure every one is happy. I pay out a lot for JR and it really annoys me that this bug keeps happening to the servers. I wish I could do more to help bring back the map but the long story short it does not exist within the backups (in our backups while we keep 7 days of zips, they actually have a few days in the zips each). I will again look in to seeing if we can do anything else with the ARK servers to stop this from happening but I can't promise anything due to the fact ARK's server stack sucks and gives us nothing but headache. I wouldn't mind but there is no logging for our linux servers, ARK only saves and shows logs for Windows servers causing it a complete pain to actually diagnose what is going on.
