Looks like I get to bump again. Today I am testing out a new mod. Although, kinda. I ran out of time. The stupid thing resisted installation and function. Got it working after a good fight at the wheel. But now I can't do anything because out of time. Yay! XD

Lost power last night. It took two hours before it returned. It went off at 8:15 pm, and thus I rolled back to 8 pm, a loss of 15 minutes. This included the obelisk, which I have backup saves of. It's standard practice here to make sure after a power outage to roll back to the start of the hour to prevent any loss of data, other than progress due to a loss of time. Typically I warn people of any storms in the area. But this was not a storm that took it down. The power grid had a fault.

I got tricked into updating the servers. Steam said 298.39, Survive the ARK forum said 298.37. I went from off what Steam community said on their page. RIP. All good tho. Server Aberration validated the files and then said nothing to update, rest of the servers stayed online. I prefer to not take things down unless I have to. And in this case, I was going to only take the unpopulated servers down as I updated, and then the populated ones after a little bit. But no problem, was a false update. XD

My stupid RAM Disk program has failed. I paid for it too. Windows updates killed it. I can't reinstall it while the servers are running. I was using it to work with the backup server to save killing my SSD when I need to build a save file from the past to recover things in ticket.

I got the ram disk working last night, and then started using it for the backup server which was needed. One of the players lost a dinosaur and gear due to something entirely out of his control and not his fault. So fixed him up. Had to get that ram disk working tho because without it, I am effectively wearing down an SSD to create a save file for recovery. All good now. :)

Hmm, real life is pushing me to just doing admin work for the server and any support tickets. Rest of the time is unavailable and I end up just chasing chores irl and working. Any spare time I did have went to family. No time for gaming. But, I will not neglect my server responsibilities.

Had some rainy weather last night, and today it looks just cloudy. But I have a maintenance scheduled for today in about 4 hours from now. So after I get back from working, I can get that done. I hope to setup an event for the week so that people can enjoy that bit of fun. I just wish that the platform allowed me to do some more useful adjustments to the game to allow for more interesting events. For example, how about any dinosaur allowing for custom loots. I can do that if I download the tools to edit item drops and setup a mod for the server. But yeah, I don't have those skills. Other people do tho, might just have to acquire some talent. Maybe my map maker who is working on the project still, can do a small task like this.

Haha, a guy who has a crap connection logged in today and said the connection is better than it has ever before. He wanted to know what I did, because one day it just changed and things ran really well. That would be the business line.

My AMD RYZEN Wraith Ripper cooler came in the mail. But it came pre-scratched on the front of the thing, which means that it is somewhat defective. But I figure once it's in a case, it should be dark enough that nobody will see it. If that is the case, why bother worrying right? Plus, nothing is perfect in this world so.

 

Update!

Here it is!

I have the server setup for the next maintenance to allow structures to clip into the terrain on PvE. That should be good. Nobody asked for it before until recently, and we have no problems with it here. Will try and get it included on the settings.
