    Drops on ark

    Still changes to do, this has taken a backseat in favour of expanding the cluster. I need to do Aberration loot drops then take a look into how the other maps work in terms of drops.

    Looking good

    That's what I was thinking as well

    Looking good

    Just some more information on how adding these mods would affect the current mod pack size. Current Size: 1.4GB Current Mods + ARRRP: 2.06GB Current Mods + Peachy Decor: 1.9GB Current Mods + Both: 2.56GB

    Dino Mind Wipe?

    Anyone interested in having a mod that allows us to use a mind wipe on our dinos?

    New maps?

    Crystal Isles, Extinction, Genesis 2, and Lost Island are now live. We’ll be monitoring the server usage and look at swapping out one of the maps when Fjordur is released if usage is low. Planning on introducing Scorched Earth within the next couple of weeks.
  6. We are happy to announce that our we are expanding the Ark Cluster to include 4 additional maps, we have been working hard to bring these servers to you. Please keep in mind that we are still in our beta testing stage for the cluster, any and all feedback is welcome. During the course of the beta test please expect changes to be made rapidly based upon player feedback, the goal here is to make a balanced and consistent experience. We will be carrying the maps over from the beta test into the full release of the server, so play as much as you want! New maps The new maps we have added as follows: Extinction Lost Island Genesis 2 Crystal Isles Mod Changes With the introduction of Genesis 2 to the cluster we have removed the Cross-Genesis 2 mod from the cluster. Connection details: To find the connection details for the servers please head on over to our servers list! https://jrnetwork.net/servers/list Feedback and Ideas If you have any feedback or ideas on how we can improve or change the server you can do so via our new ideas section of the website available here: https://jrnetwork.net/ideas/submit/?do=submit&category=2&_new=1 The new ideas section allows you to submit and vote on ideas that you believe would be beneficial to the game servers. We will also be updating the status of any ideas so that you can see where they are in our implementation pipeline.

    New maps?

    All good, I've donated an entire server box so that we can expand the Ark cluster rather significantly

    New maps?

    Crystal Isles does offer the Griffin trench or whatever it’s called which from my experience is better than Ragnarok for high level Griffins. We do have the capability to simultaneously add all the maps that I outlined above to the cluster, so 5 additional maps . Scorched Earth is on the list as it’s a map that I want to play and we have the hardware to support it.

    Looking good

    While I am not against adding mods, this is another 1GB+ of mods. I'll keep this in mind while working on the expansion of the cluster, and test it to see what the impact on the servers potentially are.

    New maps?

    Extinction is on my list as a definite new map, as it has a lot to offer. Currently looking at Lost Island, Crystal Isles, Genesis 2 and Scorched Earth as possibilities on top of this. I think we all know a Wyvern with 150%+ movement speed is the best dino in the game

    New maps?

    Hi all, I would like to gather feedback from everyone on what new maps they would like to see added to the cluster. I would prefer official maps, but if someone knows of a modded map that runs well please comment below so we can take a look! Thanks, Chris

    Dinowipe

    I have now implemented a weekly dino wipe on Thursday mornings approximately 10 minutes before restart

    Drops on ark

    I have implemented a first round of loot drop changes to Ragnarok. I am open to constructive feedback as I imagine this will be an on going process. At the moment I have balanced the drops around the minimum level you need to access them. There are 24 types of loot drops on Ragnarok, all of them contain at least 4 different item sets now.

    Dinowipe

    I don't see any issues with overspawning. Let's work on a compromise here and decide on a day and time once per week to do a wipe. I'm thinking Thursday nights, as it gives enough time before the weekend where we are likely to have more players.

    Drops on ark

    I've found a tool for doing this online, I can take a proper look at it over the weekend

    Dinowipe

    You can still place eggs even though the event is over as I have done that myself on the server. Killing dinos to get one you want to spawn is just part of the game. How are dinos not repopulating correctly?
  17. Chris

    Dinowipe

    I'll need convincing on this, what benefits would this bring? As I see it a dino wipe is likely to be more of inconvenience if you are tracking a Shiny dino over the restart period, or if you are planning on taming a dino after a restart. If you are unhappy with the quality of the dinos in your area you can always kill them. I do not see a legitimate reason for this either from a gameplay or technical perspective. The easter event has just ended what's the harm in finding some easter dodos to chase a chibi you want, or finding a dino with colours that would only be otherwise obtainable through breeding?

    Drops on ark

    Hi Emma, I do agree with you that loot drops in ark can feel underwhelming, this also extends to the options we have for modifying the loot drops unfortunately. As it stands the only way to add modified loot drops into ark is to replace the loot tables for the drops rather than just adding onto them. Essentially we have to rebuild the loot tables from scratch. If you are able to find a way to reduce the workload for this, I would be open to implementing modified loot drops on the server.
  19. We are happy to announce that our brand-new Ark Cluster is now open for beta testing, we have been working hard to bring these servers to you. The idea behind this beta test is to find any issues that might remain in the server setup, we are open to feedback from everyone. During the course of the beta test please expect changes to be made rapidly based upon player feedback, the goal here is to make a balanced and consistent experience. We will be carrying the maps over from the beta test into the full release of the server, so play as much as you want! The maps: For this cluster we are starting out with two maps to begin with Ragnarok and Aberration, we feel these maps offer the best balance for a small cluster. To compliment these maps we are using mods that bring the creatures from Genesis 1 and Genesis 2 to these maps. These mods do not add fliers to Aberration although you can transfer any dinos you tame on Ragnarok to Aberration. Connection details: To find the connection details for the servers please head on over to our servers list! https://jrnetwork.net/servers/list The mods: The approach for the mods has been to provide us with a stable base that we can then expand out from in the future. · Super Structures · Monte Stacks · Auto Engrams · Awesome Spyglass · Awesome Teleporters · Dino Storage v2 · Dino Tracker · Lethals Reusables · Upgrade Station · Eco’s RP Décor · Eco’s Tek Décor · Tek Helper · More Narcotics · Meat Spoiler · Rare Sightings · Cross-Genesis 1 · Cross-Genesis 2 The entire mod collection can be viewed here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2793807585 Server Settings: All multipliers here are in reference to the vanilla Ark values. · Taming Speed 5x · Harvest Amount 3x · XP 2x · Resource respawn radius 0.5x · Platform Saddle build area 2x · Character food drain 0.25x · Character water drain 0.25x · Platform max structure amount 5x · Platforms allow multiple floors · Base character weight 140 · All character level ups are 2x effective except fortitude which is 4x effective · Dino level ups are 2x effective for stamina and movement speed · Unlimited mindwipes · Crop growth speed 2x · Crop decay speed 0.5x · Mating interval 0.05x · Baby mature speed 25x · Egg hatch speed 25x · Baby cuddle interval 0.0232x · Baby imprint amount multiplier 5 · Wild Dino food drain 2x · Friendly fire should be enabled Super structures settings: · Water intakes can be placed anywhere · No foundations required · Resource pull range 100 foundations · Gardener range 50 foundations · Sheep herder range 50 foundations · Item collector range 100 foundations · Farmer range 100 foundations · Nanny range 50 foundations · Nanny max imprint 100% Dino storage config: · All automated generation enabled · Collects fertilized eggs and incubates them to 1% · Poop conversion enabled · Fruit seeding enabled Autoengrams config: · Unlocks all tek engrams at level 100 Feedback and Ideas If you have any feedback or ideas on how we can improve or change the server you can do so via our new ideas section of the website available here: https://jrnetwork.net/ideas/submit/?do=submit&category=2&_new=1 The new ideas section allows you to submit and vote on ideas that you believe would be beneficial to the game servers. We will also be updating the status of any ideas so that you can see where they are in our implementation pipeline. Discord: We will be updating the Ark section in our Discord server in due course, our focus right now has been to get the Ark servers available to be played on. I’m looking forward to seeing you all in game!
  20. Some settings were lost when we restarted the server as we didn't want to carry any files over and as such things like this were missed. In regards to levels these have to be added manually from level 1 to whatever level we want to go to. These require the XP for each level as well as engram points you get for each level etc. This isn't a very nice thing to do due to the way ark handles it. We are discussing increasing the difficulty of the servers instead of increasing the level caps
  21. Hi everyone JR is downscaling our hardware as currently JR is unsustainable finnacially and puts a huge burden on Jamie each month. As a result of this we will only be able to run 2 Ark Servers instead of 4. The current thinking is that we keep Ragnarok as it is the largest map and contains elements from The Island as well as Scorched Earth. As for the other server I have put a poll as to what map the community would like to see running on it. If you have an issue with us using Ragnarok for one of the servers please voice your concerns below Thank you all for reading, Chris
  22. Hey Marcus I understand your frustration with the things have been going recently and we all feel the same. We want to see JR succed and prosper. However Jamie has fallen on some hard times recently finanically and in his personal life too. Jamie started a go fund me at the beginning of the month to help the switch to new servers for JR which are cheaper than what Jamie currently pays for them. The goal was successfully met and Jamie is in the process of setting them up now. Once we complete this transition onto the new hardware, we will be working on our servers with a renewed effort in improving them for all members. Thanks, Chris
  23. Hey Heaven, do you still need any help with this issue, or can I lock the topic?
