I just now checked here https://ark.gamepedia.com/Server_Configuration

I dont see the new configs you mentioned, just the old one.

 

What wiki page are you referring to?

A google search brings up these forums, it was part of TLC Part 1.

So now it is morning and still the server is down. Western Twain  Federation, I already gave up on the imprinting because I am fairly certain that all the $%^#^ babies are dead since I couldn't log on to the server to feed them. Please fix this server 377.

Update: Ok after some coffee, my mind is working again. babies may still be ok . If server is down then no time passes. Just not sure how it works after we get back.

from 377 as well, server has been poop last 3 weeks and now this. W. T. F. wildcard, they need to fix their poop instead of worrying about making more expansions. I HAD a baby rex that just hatched from jeff(cobalt) and a baby argy from a bird that died recently due to a glitch and they are more than likely now both dead unless they roll back to a backup.

Hopefully they are ok. If the server is truly down then no time passes on the server. (just remembered) But I am not sure if when you come back that the server will change the timers.

So now they've thought a whole 5 minutes about scorched earth, time for it to go into the bag again. How about it actually had its story finished. Where's ascension for Scorched Earth, The Center and Ragnarok?

I don't think The Center and Ragnarok will ever get ascension, they never were and are not part of the story.

so am i the only one who just keeps asking my self, "all these game mods and why are they not implemented in any way in official?". It is a bit bizarre how all these game mod developers do a great job in some game mechanics and even tools and literally none of the cool ones are implemented in official game-play...bit of a shame! Lots of potential for official being wasted. Where is steampunk?where is S+? i mean, where is the cool stuff? o.O 

PLEASE WE NEED S+

Hello, trying to reach out with someone via Twitter but I get no answer =(

The testing period for small tribes ended a week ago. Does anyone knows whats going to happen now? are new smalltribes servers going to open? Because its pretty difficult to start in a server because me and my friend are constantly getting wiped by already established tribes.

Thx! (Sorry for bad english)

And noone in the community crunch ever asked about what WC will do for the tame cap situation ?

It's pretty difficult to start in a PVP server because me and my friend are constantly getting wiped by already established tribes.

It's pretty difficult to start in a PVE server because me and my friend are constantly getting a message "play on different server, this one is tame-capped"  by already established tribes, and constantly getting a message "there are too many tamed creatures on the ARK" by a knocked out dino.

 

both happens because there are people playing long before us, one became too powerful, and one became dino factories. For pvp players there should be an option to 'start fresh' that will destroy all dinoes and structures but will then grant the tribe a pvp-protection for a week or a month and the tribe can opt to remove protection at any time if they feel ready before the protection period ends, while for pve there should be a dino storage.

I want to see more Extinction footage (as does everyone) but there should be some new items / crafting materials to keep things fresh I think. Would also be quite cool to have some horror elements mixed in.. sneak attacks from wild dino's... more dangerous dino's in otherwise 'safer' areas at night or something... during a full moon carnivores are quicker and have glowing eyes... mix it up a bit! I love the game but I think more immersiveness or even some scripted, one-off events related to the next DLC to build the anticipation - definitely get people talking and sharing experiences on YouTube (free advertisement!)

...it would also be good to have 'dino cloud storage' where you can download dino's in to your own 'collection' off the server and still interact with them in some sort of 'personal Ark zoo' - this would be espcially good for people who collect 'trophy tames' that ultimately have no real purpose in say, a PVE server - may even free up some tame cap so more people can breed boss dino's!

They have the ability to download a copy of your dino into the VR game of ArkPark (but requires VR to use, which I dont have) and I heard that they plan to have Ice Cube things in Extinction (Freeze dried dinos) but have a spoil timer.

I personally wish there was some kind of dino storage like Pixark has, due to the need for so many kibble dinos, and backup dinos, and breeding pairs for dinos, as well as sentimental dinos, or dinos needing to be put away for later use, or when tribemates go on long (or even short) vacations from ark due to life or other reasons... Storage I would want to have zero fuel upkeep (and a structure decay timer that isnt stupid short... I would want at least 2 weeks to decay). My tribemate had to go away for several days, and in that time her gigas died from starvation, they were fully fed when she left. The idea of frozen cubes of dinos is great! But if they put an item spoil timer on it, that kinds ruins that option for me.

Being able to store dinos sounds like it might solve tame cap issues, until more people come on and tame more, then it would be tame capped again :/ I recently got back into Official, and while we have a collection of dinos, we do not have enough for our needs (kibble making dinos, harvesting dinos, boss dinos, and breeders), and our server hitting tame cap is not unusual for our server.

More servers would be nice, more than enough servers to cover all of their active players, if you consider many tribes play on multiple maps. I play on different maps due to the different availability of resources on the different maps. But time and cost and employee hours might make it impractical for Wildcard to have more, but I dont know the facts of that, I'm just speculating.

I'm also a huge sentimentalist. I LOVE my dinos so much and cry when I lose them, I form memories with each and every dino, and any new ones will not be able to replace the same sentiments and memories I have with ones I lost. Most of my dinos are lost from starvation, glitches, and trying to tame something. If only I could preserve them, back them up, store them for later use, or download them for playing in Singleplayer. Like what if I could get some kind of blueprint made of my dino, that if my tame dies, I can remake the same one with it's blueprint! Easily stored in storage chests, only taking up as much resources as a custom recipe would.

Some dinos/servers dont have the abilty to move the dino to singleplayer. With many modded dinos, it's impossible. Copied to singleplayer would be fantastic, no matter where you got them from, official, unofficial or modded, but the system is far from perfect imo.

 

After I left legacy a while back (and it was NOT easy to do, I was probably depressed for days, maybe more than a week, crying myself to sleep at least twice) and tried some unofficial and modded servers. Problem with the unofficial, the server closes, or they change something, and I cant put it on pause! Tried singleplayer, but I got lonely, and it crashed often. I like knowing someone is on the same world. Singleplayer just doesnt give me the same feeling as servers... but taking care of dinos on servers just ends up feeling like work that I dont enjoy. I would be wanting to play some Warcraft, but dont... because I know my server dinos need to be fed, and they might starve (dead in days, irreplaceable virtual pets gone forever) while I am out trying to be a hero for Azeroth.

 

Summary: Storing tames for later use, would give me a lot of emotional relief.
