    Simple Spawners is a popular utility mod that makes it easy to customize maps to suit the desires and needs of your server. Having expanded from creature spawners the mod adds useful tools like setting up no-build zones, no-fly zones, nests, harvestable resources, radiation zones, and loot crate/beacon points. With Simple Spawners you can get quite creative with how you customize your server map!

    any breeding event soon? 

    The next one, most likely would be around the Second Life event - if it's happening this year.
    Usually the 1st Saturday in November ~ish
    And then when we closer to Thanksgiving (late November) and/or Christmas & New Years.
    They were never meant to be a weekly thing or a regular thing.
    They were always just special thing given as an incentive/treat or as a event usually associated with a US holiday.
    The only reason there was so much of it this Spring and summer was because of Covid-19 and lockdowns everywhere.
    People expect it to be that way all the time now & then complain it's not upped further on other events.
    WC can't win this argument.

    So the devs said they changed it to 2x all the time. Why am I still only getting 1x things like 1x stone or normal run amounts on metal/ele? Is it on pc now and ps4 later? Sucks were promised 2x and dont get it and then we lose our eso as well ?

    You said you would reply to EVO event.  This is a holiday weekend.   We need to have EVO events.

    erm second life is a different game, don't you mean the Extra Life event? Combining the two would be fun though ?

    I find it funny tbh that everyone is wanting another evo event. We had x2 x 4 etc so much that it's expected. I remember

    going MONTHS without an event in sight. Ark isn't supposed to be EASY. It technically is anyway. We all decide where

    we spend our time. If you spend time on kids.. well that's a life choice ( you had em!).

    You can't use that to say gimmie an event.. No time to raise a giga?  Make friends to help or use something else. 

    These aren't WC issues. They're personal issues.

    I'm partially disabled. I don't ask for an event because of my life issues or choices. Can I have an event because my cat had kittens and I need to take care of them? NOPE. ARK is supposed to be a bit of work. If you're bored .. redefine your life choices and go find something else to do until it's NOT boring. 10k + hours and I'm far far  FAR from bored.

    ~Peace

    An Evo would certainly help right now. Element farming is horrid even on the new rates on crystal isles and it would bring joy and gratitude by most official pve server communities to see some sort of Evo if not for the common rates, a raising/taming/breeding evo would really be nice.  Feels like we've lost the excitement of weekend Evo rates which is kinda depressing, now it feels like life as usual in ark,  7 days a week.. Bored.. 

    The problem here is the community views this from many different angles.

    I've seen a lot of people over the past year or so complain that EVO events only encourage them to play at weekends and not during the week because rates were boosted. They feel there's no point doing stuff in the week, they may as well save it for the weekend. So they wanted, for a long time, the EVO rates to become the new base rates.

    Horrah! New base rates, which means what everyone was getting only at weekends they now experience all week long.

    Now people want more EVO on top of the new base rates, putting those opinions back to square one and people will only be encouraged to play at weekends because of the higher rates from EVO.

    To be honest with you I saw this coming a mile off, and I'm sure the devs did too. They finally give the community increased base rates and they still want more EVO every weekend.

    You don't "need" to have Evo weekend. Where was the UK's Evo for our holiday this week? They can't cater for every single public holiday.

    Halloween is just around the corner, i'm sure there will be increased rates with that.

    Because as it has already been explained a billion times, stone picking is ALWAYS 1 for base rates.

    Stone picking ONLY increases with EVO events.

    Every server, on every platform has the new base rates.

    Hi I was just wandering if there is a rough release date for the sponsored mod on consoles

    Sponsored Mods don't come to console. Only if they are chosen to become official will they come to console. So there's no release dates, rough or firm for that.

    I just think people want to have an easier life in the game (higher harvest rates) during the week because they work, go to school, ... Besides that they want something to look out for in the weekend i guess?

    Something that keeps them coming to the game.

    I'm sure it's extremely hard to balance tribes overruning the server with dinos that they leave out, causing game-breaking lag against the ability of a solo player to get anything done at all.

          I'm a solo/VERY small tribe person.  I have played on smalltribes, PvP ORP CrossArk, and PvE.  I can see upping the breeding rates specifically being a problem on PvE servers, where players tend to build huge structures and leave dinos unpodded.  Increasing breeding rates would contribute to making these servers unplayable pretty fast.

         On PvP servers it's less of an issue - bases get raided, people quit and move around a lot.  Instead the problem is large/established tribes being able to snowball with extremely strong dino lines.  Large established tribes already have a significant advantage on PvP servers, increased breeding rates would make that gap widen faster.

         That being said, I DO miss the EVO events.  I've seen things like this suggested before, but would it be impossible to rotate boosts for specific things each weekend?  You could even do special ones occasionally.  For example:

         Weekend 1: Breeding/raising baby dinos 2x normal.

         Weekend 2: Taming 1.5-2x normal (Some dinos still can't get a perfect kibble tame on new rates, which is frustrating). 

         Weekend 3: Special weekend! 2x harvesting element.

         Weekend 4: Breeding raising baby dinos 2x normal.

         Weekend 5: Increased loot quality from drops.

         And so on...

          This seems like it might be a way to give players a special boost on the weekends without breaking the game.  Increased breeding could be thrown into the mix as often as the devs want, and I think it would be fun to look forward to something new each weekend.

    When will the bug that Crystal Isles is devoid of life be fixed?

    I seriously think its on purpose. They cut so many creatures from the map so theres not enough spawn points for regular creatures on the official port.

    I'm still waiting on their announcement telling us that Crystal Wyvern Heirs will tameable or not like in the mod, and if they're going to actually add the Crystal and Liquid creatures back into the map.

    I don't need any evo event if the breeding rates were x2 as the constant rate just like harvesting etc.

    I'm not talking about mating interval. Just raising a dino takes way too long. When you go for resources you can be killed by griefer, you can lose stuff and that's good because it's not boring but what's the point of feeding baby dinos in secure base for days? I mean tek wall is a preety interesting wall but bruh..

    But EVO events are typically always XP/Taming/Resources. Breeding only really ever comes with special events.

    So when you say you don't need any evo event if the breeding rates were x2 that to me doesn't make any sense. As breeding is not 2x, why do you need Evo events?

    I'm going to guess that people consider Evo events as all rates in general so whatever aspect you are referring to it's an Evo event, when in reality Evo is all about the 3 rates only.

    If evo event doesn't include breeding rate, I don't need evo events.

    When is primitive + going to get a fix for the crystal wyverns? They were all these on release then that last update wiped them completely, lost all tamed and wild and even wiped the eggs, and the cryopod ones turned into Raptors that you cant throw out, give prim+ some love!

    Not sure why people keep saying "rates haven't increased" despite there being several very clear mentions (in-game and in the community crunches) that the rates were increased to 2x for a tiny bit BEFORE they became the default with the help of an event.
