    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

    I have now fixed Ragnarok.
    Qwerty has offered to spawn you in a new dino, however next time he is on discord please message him to sort this out.
    Any issues please use the #gameserverhelp channel in discord that is the best way to alert us to issues

    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

    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

     Chris reacted to Ravek in A hard decision   
    Ever since my friends invited me onto this server, I started playing on it daily, I started to learn the names of the members and staff, Learned the way that JR wants to run. I joined the server at the age of 13/14. Played on it to this very day. When I got to talking to staff often, I started wanting to help JR grown and be a better community. I would stay on all night while all the EU staff were sleeping, and take screen shots of people cursing, cheating, or griefing. (being a tattle tale) I tried everything I could to become apart of the staff. It was my dream goal to one day be wearing a red name tag in the Minecraft server under "Admin". I maybe tried too hard to become staff as I would try and beat the staff to the problem and try to fix it myself. Posted on forums to try and get activity up. I tried all I could, attended every meeting. The day came on my 16th birthday I could apply for helper. I was so happy, It took a few days for them to look over it but finally I was accepted as a Helper. I was the happiest guy alive. Then I continued to strive to work up the ranks and do my best and help the Owner, Admins, and Mods in anyway I could. When I was promoted to Grief Police at the time, was another amazing day for me, I ran around my house (literally) to get my excitement out of the way. Grief Police was later merged into Moderator, Which is where I stand. I have thought about this for many days. This might be the hardest thing I have ever had to do. There comes a point in our lives where we all must say goodbye to something, someone, or some place that we love. It's never easy. But today I must make one of those hard goodbyes, Today is the day I feel I must step down from management. There are a few reasons for this. First, my current life situation doesn't give me a whole lot of time to be active enough to help and support the server/community. Second, I joined this community for the Minecraft aspect, and as I feel the majority of the community is now past the Minecraft aspect. I feel there is not much for me to do here. Third, I don't really offer any help anymore. Everything JR as a whole needs help with from staff is either beyond my abilities or in games that I do not own or play. I will never forget this amazing time I have had here, nor will I ever leave the community. This will always be my home, staying up late talking to members and staff. Getting to know such amazing people. Everyone here has had a place in my heart since I got to know them. All the staff were so helpful and caring. I have never had bad times being here. I have always had people to rely on and count on to pick me up when I'm feeling down. I will always recommended this place to anyone as it is nothing but inspiration. So many amazing unique people. I wish I coulda done more for the server but I did what I was capable of doing. This my last post as staff at JR. I will always remember and love this place. I hope one day I will be able to bring my daughter to come play here. ❤️

    JR is purely voluntary and as such JR is not at the top of our list of priorities. Jamie has been busy with work this week and he always keeps the weekend for himself as he should to ensure he does get a life outside of JR and work. Liam I assume is working this weekend or is working weird hours which aren't allowing him to be online. I am personally dealing with University deadlines and my brother is visiting me this weekend.
    We want this to be done, but we want it to be done correctly there is no point rushing something like this.

    We don't need ACM, it's a convenience thing; that is more of  an inconvenience these days as it doesn't work 95% of the time. Also can you narrow your list of essentials down to 3 mods, we are trying to start off small to ensure maximum compabitility between the mods used.

    Whenever I spawn dinos in to replace those people have lost I make sure they are of equal level if not higher @Snowball
     
     
    For the 3 mods I would suggest
    Structures plus, is there any other way to build on ark?
    Classic Flyers,
    And a stacking mod

    Reading @MarcusFaren's and @Snowball's posts they both raise certain points.
    Mods do add new IDs for stuff, however if they are created properly as clean and stackable mods it wouldn't matter about moving dinos from one server that doesn't have the mod to one that does. They should revert to standard vanilla dinos. For example we could uninstall Classic Flyers right now and all your dinos would still be there, just they would no longer be classic flyer versions of the dinos they would revert to vanilla. As far as I'm aware the Aberration and Scorched Earth mods were installed on the appropriate servers and assumed to be clean and stackable, we also had to rush to install them as the last mods we were using for the engrams got pulled from the workshop randomly and stopping people from connecting to the servers.
    If we do a supply drop as opposed to allowing transfers we would be able to provide downloads to the old maps so that people would be able to play them locally if they wished. We will also realease the mod list so you could carry on with these worlds on your own local game. On @IAMSNOWMAN's concerns about this just being a map reset, we should be setting up a completely new set of servers from scratch to ensure no files are carried over.
    @heaven I understand what you're going through, you're new to the game and don't want to lose all that you've worked for. However you could look at this in another light, taking all that you've learned so far to improve how you play the game when you start fresh. I found that when playing ark to begin with it was handy to start over as I found better ways to do things and had an idea of what I needed to survive. As the map randomly resetting isn't going to stop overnight, we need to take drastic action to fix this as it is happening so much. I completely understand that you don't want to lose your work, no one does. As we are compensating players with 5 dinos we can make these utility dinos to help you with resource gathering.
