    Community Crunch 215: Anti-Mesh System Enhancements, and EVO Event

    Anti-Mesh System Enhancements

    large.598e538d96ba6_FataL1ty-Patrol-8x.j

    Last week we deployed upgrades to the anti-mesh system that significantly reduced the amount of meshing that is occurring on the Official Network. It’s been instrumental in creating a fair playing experience and decreasing the amount of meshing, as we are seeing an overall 90% reduction. We truly believe, with your help, we’ll be able to move the needle to 99%!

    The first iteration of the anti-mesh system only included detection which enabled us to collect critical data needed to upgrade the system to take action on those who were identified to be meshing. The wide-scale deployment of the second iteration last week allowed us to reduce the edge cases and false-positives that resulted from upgrading the system to take action. We’re now introducing an upgrade to the action-taking capabilities of the anti-mesh system that is much more aggressive than the prior version we introduced last week. Instances in which you may have been teleported before will be less forgiving now. This upgrade has been tested on multiple maps and across a large number of servers.  After fixing the few edge cases that resulted from the upgrade, we are now confident in widening the scope of servers to ensure the system is ready for the larger network.

    It is possible that you may find yourself in situations where the system has not accounted for and we're asking for your assistance in reporting them. Your tribe log will contain important information about any actions taken by the anti-mesh system. That information is useful in determining if it was a legitimate action and will be utilized to make further improvements to the detection logic.  We've created a thread for you to file your reports:

    We will be vigilant in reviewing your feedback and responding to cases in which the anti-mesh system acts incorrectly. With your help and cooperation we believe we can eliminate meshing, an exploit that ruins the gaming experiences for many survivors across Official and Unofficial Networks.

    So they are still focused on mesh and making it worse when again all they have to do is disable explosives tame riding and cryo use and structure placement yet they are now making it worse by adding structure demolishing on top of instant death and loosing tames. Im Literally done trying this game actually doesn't care how much they break their own game over some cheaters when all they have to do is disable actions in the mesh and it can still record data of whem they active that code but they just want to be cheeky and kill the game right before their last DLC. And to top it off they are biast as can be by leaving all the dupers with massive untouchable bases but let's praise them and fix the only way to stop the dupers and not just fix it lets punish them for wanting to keep their loot away from all the duping cheaters yeah cause meshing is way worse then inifinte duped mechs with infinite supply of element and completely spammed off laggy maps let's just welcome the dupers right into genesis right? Smh this is so disappointing...

    Questo mi dà ancora fastidio ..... Anti mesh, ma non correzione della mappa?

    Ecco un primo esempio. Quanto sarebbe difficile mettere un blocco lì?

    E le linee della maglia su Estinzione giù nella foresta sommersa. I miei occhi bruciano!

    Lavora di più. Meglio. Più veloce. Più forte.

    Ma ti rendi minimamente conto di tutto il lavoro che stanno facendo? Come puoi dire lavora di piu lavora meglio, vai tu al loro posto a lavorare di piu e a lavorare meglio, altrimenti limitati a ringraziarli per aver creato un gioco unico e magnifico, il perfezionamento richiede tempo.

    I had this issue, I mind wiped and it fixed it, dropped me from lvl 133 to 131 though but atleast I can gain xp now

    I did the mind wipe to lose the 5 lvls and I am now back to 132...but you cant gain any xp with a max lvl dino. Have to use dinos that can lvl so you can as well.

    Glad you are trying to fix things a couple years too late, my question is will you be replacing the dino's, items and structures of the people who are not meshing? My entire base seems to have become an anti mesh zone i built under a building in extinction desert biome there is nothing but ground under me no foundations, my dino's and myself are being destroyed by anti mesh. weeks of time spent are being obliterated and i've done nothing wrong but walk across the dirt. Im sorry to cry about it but how do we play if there's constant fear the devs will just ghost wipe anything not in a clear cut field?

    Not often I get to do this but I'm so happy. I play ps4 official and for the first time in a very long I've heard people happy. To quote a tribe leader, " it feels refreshing to see some actual effort put in. I feel like this is a potentially a new game."

    Just stop the LAG... please :) maybe just put every server on a daily reboot cycle at midnight ??? 

    Most lag on servers, is either the amount of stuff on the server or the players connection is bad. They can't really do much except try to see if they can make items less laggy, which may not constantly work

    Wildcards biggest mistake is not wiping or at least giving us new server clusters.I suspect genesis sales are lower than excpected due to people quitting,a lot would return with new servers.

    Not if the problems of the old servers persist with the new servers

    You can't just disable stuff when they cross the mesh, and if you mean disable them period. Why? Why would they disable those thing just to fix what demolishing and killing would do so much better and be so much faster. Also I imagine that wildcard plans on fixing the duping soon

    I understand that anti meshing is important, but do we need to have an ark update every day sense the 10th? We run an unofficial server cluster and because of the amount of updates lately many of us don't want to continue playing as updates and cluster restarts take a minimum of an hour for everything to come back online. It's really frustrating as I recall at one point you guys saying updates should only happen on Tuesdays outside of patches to fix game altering major bugs after large updates.

    Great work on fixing meshing now I think Xbox/PS4 servers should be wiped after all the people that’s lost there base cuz of being meshed and everyone has dupe stuff if the servers don’t get wiped I  think the meshers would still win cuz most of them Would have a base

    Im looking forward to the first half of the dlc! so pumped! good job guys! tho this new meshing thing has me worried because im a builder its like the only thing I like to do. in my own single player map or with a server I rented from nitrado. I like to use my admin code to go under the map to fix my builds.. and if im in a spot with no water I like to put pipes all the way down to the water under it.. soo.. to be honest if I cant do that with my own server or player and cant hide the ugly pipes im not going to have much interest anymore.. to be honest. building is pretty much all I do. so that part has me worried. that buildings gonna change in a way I wont like.  the new pretty maps need pretty buildings!! and the new questing YES!! Im interested in doing.

    Well done one meshing fixes.

    1. Meshing (good job)

    2. Duping (need a cluster wide item cataloging system)

    3. Aimbot (detection and response needed)

    4. Character loss (still rampant)

     

    Once all four are completed I think we can confidently say we will have a much improved product we can without any guilt get our friends to play...

    Any one else having trouble connecting to servers and having friends join your non dedicated server? I’m having that issue if anyone can help that would be awesome 😁

    All good intentions are great.  I'm guessing you guys didn't take collisions while riding a carried farming tame.   People are losing ankys  and doeys everywhere on metal runs and being told they won't be replaced.   Thats only going to hurt the legit players.

    I run a player dedicated ragnarok server and the supply crates, loot crates, deep sea loot crates and the wyverns arent spawning. Is this something that is know of or being fixed?
