Since we have started ARK we have been very dedicated in keeping our servers up to date and interesting for the community. This update adds a load of fixes and more:
- Updated servers twice today, first to update to 258, second a bug patch update
- Added Death Recovery Mod and MR Radinc Tools as chosen by the community
- Added classic flyers test totem to help with insane amount of wyverns spawning on volcano, this will stop a lot of user lag
- Ragnarok map updated
- Structures Plus updated
- Server will use less CPU and RAM with this update
- Testing mod auto update on the island server, if it works properly we will add auto updating to the mods we use at JR so there will be less work for our admins
