    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!

    Server suggestion: primitive plus

    Okay so my last suggestion I'm Going to make, for a more Vanilla experience, why don't we use a Primitive Plus server? With it you'd need less mods and probably have more fun playing since it offers a legitimate way to trade more unique items. So I think it's a good idea but I'm wondering who else agrees with me here?

    Too many mods?

    I agrre with OP, there can be to many mods. And is not the server that is usually the problem. It's the client side that lags down. Mods tend to eat RAM, load times gets way longer, game lags, timeout disconnects. So people like me, the casual gamer, that does not have the latest in GPU and RAM will get problems. What I think is important is the choice of mods. I've seen a lot of severs with mods doing more or less the same thing. And as for the meatspoiler. Really redundant since they added the "split all" option in the inventory. Shin

    Too many mods?

    Just on this topic, While ARK is growing my main concern is getting too big too fast. I'm in the process of finding a way to fund another server to host ARK to take away some of the server strain and to give some more resources for our other servers. ^ The above is true. I want the best experience everyone can have. It upsets me when a server goes down and I can't sort it right away or it kicks out people or lags. As a gamer, I know how lag causes upset for us. If we do reach a point where our servers cause performance degradation I will know pretty quickly and we can take action in the form of removing things, cleaning things, optimising further or moving on another server Thanks for raising your concerns though, they have been noticed and noted.

    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.

    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/

    Pillars plus

    I noticed we have structures plus but not pillars plus. This adds angled pillars so you can extend off of cliffs and such. Also adds round pillars instead. Thank you, kosh

    We have just launched our new Ragnarok Server. This server aims to have a minimal amount of mods and we want to encourage tribes to work together with each other. The rates are basically the same as our current servers. However we have cut down on the amount of mods to try and attract some of our old players back. Who aren't pleased with all the mods we have installed. To that end this new server runs the following mods: Super Spyglass Structures Plus (allows tapping of water from anywhere) Reusable Plus Classic Flyers Small Resource Stacks AB Advanced Rafts Suicide Potion The levels are the same as our main Ragnarok server so you able to reach around level 230 so you can get all engrams solo. The rates are as follows: Server Difficulty Difficulty offset:2.3 Dino Stats EggHatchSpeedMultiplier=4.0 BabyMatureSpeedMultiplier=25.0 BabyImprintingStatScaleMultiplier=0.5 BabyCuddleIntervalMultiplier=0.05 DinoHarvestingDamageMultiplier=3 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed_Add[7]=3.0 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed_Affinity[7]=3.0 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed[0]=2.0 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed[1]=2.0 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed[2]=1.5 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed[3]=2.0 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed[4]=1.0 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed[5]=1.0 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed[6]=1.0 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed[7]=3.5 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed[8]=2.0 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed[9]=2.0 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed[10]=1.0 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed[11]=1.0 Player Stats PlayerHarvestingDamageMultiplier=2 AllowFlyerCarryPvE=True XPMultiplier=2 HarvestAmountMultiplier=5 PerLevelStatsMultiplier_Player[0]=1.0;HEALTH PerLevelStatsMultiplier_Player[1]=1.0;STAMINA PerLevelStatsMultiplier_Player[3]=2.0;OXYGEN PerLevelStatsMultiplier_Player[7]=3.0;WEIGHT PerLevelStatsMultiplier_Player[8]=1.0;DAMAGE PerLevelStatsMultiplier_Player[9]=2.0;SPEED PerLevelStatsMultiplier_Player[10]=2.0;FORTITUDE PerLevelStatsMultiplier_Player[11]=3.0;CRAFTING You can connect to the server at: vaiken.jrnetwork.net:27021

    Ark server usage poll

    Yeah I realy only Play on Rag but if we were to keep the scorched server if its not being played on possibly long enough for people who want it to get the phoenix and transfer it over? Also i wouldnt mind playing on new maps, maybe the Crystal Isles thoug I don't know how developed that one is.

    First things first link to the mod: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=609380111 Stargate Worlds, adds Stargates to the game. What are Stargates? They are big rings made of a fictional element called Naquadah which channel energy to open wormholes to other stargates across the galaxy, with enough power they can create stable connections to other galaxies. In this mod they allow for transportation across the map, admins are able to create public gates so if you want people to visit an area they easily can. Stargates are essentially a cheaper version of the teleporter and can be placed on platform saddles if the correct one is crafted. This mod also adds transportation rings (rings) which are basically elevators but without the hassle. You have two points vertically, you place one set of rings at the bottom and one set of rings at the top. Then you can teleport between the two spots with ease. It also adds "Puddle Jumpers", which are fairly difficult to get. They are flying vehicles (which can go underwater fine), they can carry up to 10 survivors and can go pretty fast. They can't do any damage to anything so they aren't too overpowered.

    JR is committed to provide it's members with good quality servers. We have just released our Just Cause 3 MP server! We are excited to provide this new experience for players around Europe. There are only a few servers for JC3 (24 in fact) but we are proud to say we have one of the best pings around Europe, we are in the top 5 servers with ping. Since releasing the server last night we instantly had players on, this morning we were packed out at 32 of 32 slots filled. We have updated the slot count to 80, but to be a bit different and crazy we have upped it to 120 slots which will take effect on the next reboot. We have kept everything rather vanilla and haven't added any plugins to the server. You can join, spawn in any weapon or vehicle you want and just annihilate and get annihilated! To join this server you can connect with the following steam link: steam://connect/c3po.jrnetwork.net:4201/ Currently we have not added this to our server list yet. We will be soon but I do not have the time to add in the code currently. This will be done as soon as I get a time to code. We hope you enjoy this new experience

    We are committed to you the community and we like to think we are one of the best listening server communities out there. We install mods for you guys as long as you want them and we do small tweaks to try and keep everyone happy. This JR update we have done a few things. Please read the entire update post to understand why we may have done some of these things. Added upgrade station Only available to end game players to keep things fair and not become over powered. You will need 100 engram points to use each item You have to be level 210 to unlock these currently We may have to revise engram points towards endgame. This will be done soon if it becomes a problem for endgame players. Disabled auto unlocking of TEK engrams on server join This is because we have had a few complaints that this takes away server raids / events for killing bosses This also takes away that team challenge This will increase community spirit and get players to work together to kill bosses to unlock TEK WE HAVE NOT removed crafting of element, we believe this should be a part of the game, instead of having to kill boss after boss just to build TEK. This is due to the amount of solo players we also have so when a solo player has killed a boss with a group to unlock TEK the solo player can revert to playing solo THIS WILL NOT AFFECT CURRENT PLAYERS, ONLY NEW PLAYERS WILL HAVE THIS CHANGE FOR THEM. (People who have not joined the server before) Reduced dino spawn rate on all servers by 10% This will help with CPU resources. You will not notice much of a change Due to this we have had to wipe wild dinos, they should respawn soon Lowered resource respawn radius This will stop you guys having to run a mile away from your structures to get more items / resources Changed difficulty offset to 2.5 in the island + the center This is due to a slight comparative difference with how high levels are between ragnarok, scorched earth allowing some higher levelled dinos to be spawned. Edited MOTD to show our discord short link We hope you understand why we have done a few of these tweaks, if you would like any more information or are not happy with any of the above changes please contact me directly on our discord: discord.jrnetwork.net or by private messaging me on the website. Thanks guys!

    Running jr, it's costs and help

    Thank you for your service. I used your donation service. See you in game.

    So it's official, I have purchased a new server and we will be soon moving to it after we have finished testing the servers. What's the big deal with this Jamie? This server is dedicated to ARK. Nothing Else, This means no lag caused by other games/services JR provides Due to this, ARK has more resources allocated to it. We are running 4 servers on just this one node and it's performing way better than ever before BUT WAIT! There is more! I have been developing a system for a while that will auto update the servers and modifications at non peak hours (4 AM). This system, restarts the server every day, updates the server if updates are needed, updates mods, restarts the servers and makes sure they are online after the maintenance. IF, the server does not come online, it auto emails myself directly to tell me the server is down. With the auto update system we have tested it, it's working great. But there may be bugs we have not come across yet. ON TOP OF THAT We know you guys, don't like downtime. So, our new server, automatically checks every 5 minutes if the server has crashed or if an error has occurred. If it does find a server is down, it automatically emails myself and sends me a log of the last things that have happened on the server. This will make it easier to find exactly what happened and what we can do to fix it if it happens again. A few notes: You will not loose items/structures + dinos after we switch to the live server. This should occur tomorrow and we will be copying all save data to the newly optimised server. If you'd like to test the servers use the following IPs: The Island: steam://connect/ Scorched Earth: steam://connect/ The Center: steam://connect/ Ragnarok: steam://connect/ Please note if you do test the servers they will be wiped and the current map of the server that people have been playing on will replace the test map we have running. The servers will update at 4 AM every day, Server admins may update the server if needed during the day to allow people to play who may have updated their mods. To make sure you can play while you wait for us to update the server (if a mod has been released) please do not download any updates for mods till a server news post has been posted. The test IP's will be the new IP's and we will be switching to them so please save them to your server steam list! The switch over to the new server will occur tomorrow morning/afternoon at some point. While this happens please note all ARK servers will go down while map transfers take place. I'm so happy to finally give you this update, I have worked very very hard to get this working so quickly. I'd like to thank Chris for helping on small parts and helping me also figure out what was wrong with auto updating mods. This update will help the staff, me and Chris mainly to have a bit more peace, less updating and more playing and most of all it'll improve your experience as there will not be any weird crashes due to no maintenance etc. and mods / ark will update easier and quicker for everyone whether automatic or manually done by a admin.

    Opinion on difficulty

    Tbh, I like the server how it is and I really hope you not will make any changes. I don't mind not adding more mods to the servers but I would really dislike if the stats were changed.

    Request for the mod: upgrade station

    In the end the daily survival is mostly over when you have something big to ride (you dont even need any armor for that). But in my opinion the upgradestation would be nice to help with caves/bosses. you just cant do some alone or in little groups. Of course it should fit the server. Leave it for "endgame". Maybe for lvl180/190+? So you still have to work to get there. And getting to this lvl isnt that hard to be honest. Never played with that mod but upgrading should be expensive so you have to farm for your desired stuff. In early lvls i dont think its useful. having op gear before you even have a stonebase feals dumb and completely destroys the survival part.

    Too many mods?

    Hi guys. I've been thinking for a while that there's a bunch of mods and people suggesting mods like suicide potion and meat spoiler. I can see that when you're used to that, it's hard to not have, but... Idk, it seems like it would be too easy. Why get suicide potion when you can easily get killed by a dino or jump off a cliff or split meat? I mean, if people really want those mods it's fine but, it just seems like there's getting a lot of mods with already 14(?) mods. I've heard from other ark players that too many mods, causing the servers to lag more. I'm getting a bit concerned, that's why I made this post. Not to be annoying or anything, just wanted to say what has been on my mind for a bit now. Other changes I'd like to see, was to increase the taming stat. That's pretty much the only thing that bothers me a bit. But what are y'alls thoughts on this? Too many mods or am I paranoid? xD

    Latest mod suggestions

    Please. Anyone give me one good reason why this is needed. So many ways to kill yoursell in vanilla even and you want this to add to the load of your game? We dont even have pefinder, but a suicide potion is needed... I can suggest 25-30 mods that everyone will like and vote for, will they be added then? I would propose a max amount of mods... a new one in means an old one out.. In my very personal opinion all mods needed on any ARK server is S+ and Autmated ark. Shin

    Too many mods?

    But ofcourse @Emma your concern is greatly appreciated within the team and feedback like this is what helps to keep JR a place to come back to for all to enjoy As mentioned if you feel any mods currently used are not important or neccessary then we can create community polls to understand with the input of users which remain and which can be removed so thank you for the input !
