Due to popular demand I have changed the following settings on ARK:
Player Levels now total 185 max
Dino Levels now total 328 max
Taming Rate is now 3x
Difficulty has been raised slightly
Due to increased player levels engram points have been altered slightly. You may have more / less points than when you logged in last.
We are looking at 1 decoration mod only, please check this post for more information.
We have not added / edited any mods with this update.
We hope you enjoy the changes.
For Any PS4 owners out there who play #SpiderManPS4, @insomniacgames have blessed the community with the highly requested Suit from Spiderman 2002. Are we even worthy of this gift! #hohoho. Not all heroes wear capes!
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.
Death Recovery Mod
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.
