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!

Recent Events at Conan
Conan has been growing and attracting new players, which we are very happy about.

A couple of things have come up and we need to outline a few rules about the server. Just a note in relation to the server game type, we are making the server PVE. We did have PVE Conflict but we have agreed for the mean time to make it just PVE. In the future when the server grows we might have conflict days where we fight against each other as a community.

Have you played on our server yet? If not join us here: https://servers.jrnetwork.net/

 

All rules / guidelines specific to Conan will be located here and will be available soon:

https://jrnetwork.net/help/serverwiki/conan-exiles/

Please note all JR rules apply to every service we run, you can find these rules here:

Recent Updates to ARK
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.

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.




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.

Hi everyone,

Coming to you with a rather sad news update. JR is currently facing finnicial difficulties and we don't have long until we have to pay our server fees for the month (tomorrow). Jamie has had to pay a rather large sum of money this month to have his car repaired which wouldn't be an issue on it's own. However after picking his car up from the garage where it was being repaired, he has rear ended by someone more interested using his phone than paying attention to the road. Currently this person has not provided Jamie with his insurance details, meaning Jamie currently doesn't know what is going to happen and he may have to seek legal action, which in itself can be quite expensive. Even if you can't donate much to help us out it is greatly appreciated, as without these donations JR won't be able to pay for our servers this month and have to shut down. We are asking for any money that you can spare. We do not like asking for your money, but this is a critical time for us.

Anyone who donates anything will recieve an additional 5000 JR cash regardless of how much or how little you can help! We appreciate anything you can spare.

Anyone who donates between 5 and 29.99 Euro will recieve JR premium for 6 months

Anyone who donates between 30 and 59.99 Euro will recieve JR premium for 12 months

Anyone who donates 60 Euro or over will recieve JR Premium for 2 years.

 

We thank you all for reading this

Unfortunately one of the mod authors we used has removed all his mods from the workshop. As such we are no longer able to use the "DLC Engrams Everywhere mod". For Aberration engrams we already have the cross aberration mod so that is not an issue. For Scorched Earth we are currently testing this mod https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=937164220

If you encounter any issues with this mod please let us know so we can look into it ^.^

I have put this mod on all servers, it shouldn't affect spawns on Gaia as far as I'm aware.

Please read here if you play our gameservers
JR runs so many servers now at this stage, unfortunately for us this comes with a price. 

Money yes


Tons of resources yeah, that too


Managing servers are the hardest part




While we monitor our servers and keep backup's for 5 days of maps at a time if we are not advised there is a problem with a game server we may not find out till it's too late

Why 5 days? Because of resources, we can not financially hold more backups than this due to space constraints.

Just a note here before I continue. Don't assume a problem has been reported, if you have an issue with our servers REPORT IT! IF we are not told in time it may be too late.

What to do if there is a issue with a server?

Visit our Help Centre found here; https://jrnetwork.net/help/help-center/


Report the issue with either a official support ticket / community help forum post. 




You can also notify us in #gameserverhelp on discord!

Recently players have only PMed me issues, this will not do! Unfortunately I am not around 24/7 this is why I have staff to help. If you only message me privately staff are not informed and can not take action.

We have staff for a reason, please follow proper procedure if an error occurs, a server goes down, or if the map is lost.

NEVER PM JUST ONE MEMBER OF STAFF, REPORT IT CORRECTLY AS STAFF MAY BE ON HOLIDAY, SICK, OUT, BUSY WITH LIFE, WHATEVER THEY ARE DOING.

The Ark Island Server
In relation to this The Island map has been reset and there is no way back. On trying to revert a back up the earliest I had was the 12th. Which didn't contain users builds etc. I hate to turn round and tell users there is no way to get their stuff back. 

This is caused due to Structures plus. EVERY TIME it updates it causes a map issue like this and there is nothing I can do but revert the map backup which fixes the issue.

REND Server - WE have one!
JR has jumped ahead of the curve and setup a rend server. Due to current server flaws with the REND server we can not query a REND server for our server list or give an IP to connect as you can not direct connect!

Well how do I connect? 

Easy! Search Rend @ JR in the server browser.

If you have any queries please go to our discord at https://discord.jrnetwork.net and post in #gameserverhelp

JRCraft 1.13
It's time for 1.13

We have been very busy, very very busy. JRCraft 1.13 is now in a beta stage release.

Please note only Survival will be available currently. We are working on creative but unfortunately some components need serious work.

A note on worlds and 1.13

We don't want to loose anyone's world but we also would like to keep our servers stable. Due to breaking changes in 1.13 we have removed the old world... Only joking, all your stuff is safe! BUT we are creating a new 1.13 world and encouraging players to move their stuff on to it. We will be helping with world moves using world edit (when world edit is stable and working correctly with 1.13). The reason we have created a new world is due to the following: 

I want to have a map that isn't going to crash the server


Easier access to find new 1.13 content for new members


More space for new and old members, a clean map that will encourage server growth




N.B Inventories between old and new map are linked so therefore you can move your stuff to the new map.

We are quickly creating a small spawn to tell players in game how to get to the old map, this will change with @bantheif and his new spawn for us

Protections

Protecting your stuff is one of major concerns at JRCraft, always has. Unfortunately full world guard functionality is not there currently due to the fact it's still being updated for 1.13. One thing we have done is remove logblock due to incompatibilities instead we have installed CoreProtect so we are able to roll back any griefing or problems.

LWC is currently broken, we are awaiting to see if we can get a update, but it may not be likely due to inactivity of the plugin. We have installed grief prevention but it's not currently working due to worldguard issues. As soon as worldguard is updated you will be able to use Grief Prevention, 

If you do get griefed please report it on our Discord at: https://discord.jrnetwork.net in the #gameserverhelp

Creative and Minigames

A lot of stuff has broken due to 1.13, I know we will get these servers back eventually but please remain patient as things will take a bit of time to get sorted.

Other changes:

Removal of HUB server and stargates, instead we are switching to a neater solution so you dont have to walk through the portals. 
Instead use /servers a GUI will appear so you can select a server.

New flying plugin will be introduced in the next few days, to add a more survival aspect to our servers people wishing to use fly in survival will have to use coal to fly. Please note premium users and donaters can fly unlimited.

Entire plugin directory has been wiped out so we can clean up our act on the server. 

Choptree is broken, it will be back so you can axe down the entire tree by chopping the bottom block

McMMO and Jobs has been updated but these are experimental builds and may have an issue

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

JR Ranks, Levels and Rewards
We are beta testing our new servers list and ranking system. Please note levels are not final and may change, experience may be reset at the end of this beta test. All JR Cash earned from the beta test will be kept in your account for use as a thank you for helping with our testing.

We will be conducting a full release of this new system in the coming few weeks, keep watch for it as an event may be released with it!

This build fixes many bugs that you may have seen, including the dodgy player list. Please note we can not fix the bug caused by ghosting player names caused by ARK and we are still trying to get player names back from the JC3 server so things are not support with that as of yet.

For more information about this new system please see the easy to read docs here:

We will be doing a full release soon but we want to squash any other bugs I may have not found yet. If you find any bugs while using this system please report them in the #websitehelp chat on our discord. https://discord.jrnetwork.net/ 

I really hope you like this update. Don't forget to use these new features you must sign in to JR with your steam / minecraft ID. For more information on how to do this please follow this quick guide.

Currently: Frank T Hack is the Most Valuable Player?! To knock him off the podium you have to beat his online time or get more kills in TF2, CS:GO. MVP is currently ranked on the amount of experience a player holds! He could be beaten at any point and soon there will be EXP / CASH events at JR! Expect one when the full release comes out!

JR - Latest Updates (What's going on?)
Bit of information on why I haven't been around much recently. I'm developing a new system (i'm keeping it a secret currently) this will be a big enough update to JR and will give back to our community that sticks with JR's gaming servers. I'm hoping to release it at the start of next month. Currently I have developed the system and it is working and we will be beta testing it soon enough. 

JRTV hasn't been forgotten, episode 10 is nearly ready but will not be released till some time in the next week or two. The reason being I'm on holiday next week and will be ceasing all development and JR work while I am on holiday and the episode is not complete yet. 
I hope you can understand the wait till the next episode, I've been asked by a few people who watch the episodes when it'll be released. It'll be here soon just please bear with me.

JR's server bills are coming up soon and if you want to support our content and servers please consider sending a small donation to me here: https://jrnetwork.net/clients/donations/ I spend a lot of time working behind the scenes on JR. Even if you don't see me around the website or on discord it's because i'm busy working on new features, updating servers or else. For context, I've spent over 60 hours on the new system myself coding.

JR is becoming a big enough platform and I'm trying to get more things integrated to become a more universal experience to manage. We have many different systems running different parts of the servers and website. Hopefully soon everything will be on a more unified panel soon, most things are, just a few stray servers.

Five M will be coming properly to JR, currently we have been having issues with running a server on our platform, I have a couple of ideas to fix these issues. This will be implemented soon.

If you are wondering what this blurred image is, it's a git of all the commits to this new upcoming system. The staff all are aware of what I'm building. I just hope you all like the idea.

What do you want at jr?
Hi guys,

I'm always looking to improve the services we run. Whether adding more servers or working with the community to better our existing ones. I'd like to know a few things from you guys. We have a lot of members come and also go, which is saddening as sometimes after members leave I find out that they leave because either something is not on our server (s) or something is not working right. Instead of notifying me users are just leaving and that really is bad for a growing community like JR.

I need to know if something is wrong, if something needs to change. I always work with the community to make things work better, just talk to me

We always have a place for suggesting ideas and you can do so here @ https://suggest.jrnetwork.net/

We always have a place for getting help too: https://jrnetwork.net/help/help-center/

Either way, please spend a few minutes to help us answer these questions. You can use the template below if wanted.

What would make JR Better?

What do you feel is wasted at JR?

What servers do you use?

What servers do you want?

Any other thoughts you may have?
