If you have any suggestions or found a bug, use ,feedback [message] in your discord server, this will send me a message :)

Dododex backed bots are the way to go. The changes in the kibble system were recent. By centralizing through either Dododex or Ark Wiki we can ensure that exposure to the same-content is high and updates are called for by one of the platforms. So as opposed to some sort of solution w/ hard-coded responses I would rely on RestAPI. 

I wouldn't mind doing this as a windows service or even a laravel solution. The thing is; right now... I need work. You couldn't expect me to take on a 'free' project and then allocate more than 30+ hours a week towards it. Its not about 'now'. Programs are slow to write. 

Edit: I recant, unless there are things that you need done. sometimes I accidentally rush into threads with a dev-response whenever solutions have already been made. If you need support then let me know. thanks.

I like the bot!

I would also like to see an future function where it can gather the latest Community Crunch and news from Survivetheark.com and post automatically In a discord channel of my choosing. Then maybe a function where it can auto post the most commented forum post of the day also from survivethark.com


Thanks for a great bot!

hey, i have installed the bot, but it doesnt give me any knockout info?


Looks like either the channel settings, or your user settings have embeds disabled. You can enable them via User Settings -> Text & Images -> Show website preview info from links pasted into chat, or for channels, Permissions -> Defense Unit -> Embed Links

Hey everyone! Loving the bot so far, but I'm having a little difficulty with some of the taming checks.

Question 1: has the bot been updated to reflect the global taming scale from the recent wildcard update? Our server was previously a 40x taming server, but now is 20x due to the changes, so is that going to be reflected if i change the configuration to 20x instead?

Question 2: how do you check taming calculators for X dinos and tek dinos? when trying to use the standard format, (i.e. ,tame 210 tek rex) it says it cannot find that dino. same thing for the x dinos.

Thanks in advance!

Defense Unit has reached 5000+ servers.

I'd like to thank everyone for using the bot and providing feedback for it. I never thought that it would reach more then 100 servers but here we are. It's been a long ride (2 years, 1.0.0 was released at 2018-09-09) and we still have a long way to go! 

A list of milestones and large updates over the years:

- v2 : Taming with dododex
- v3 : Rewrite of v2 and release of the initial server dasbhoard (it was called Fort Bots back then)
- v3.1 : release of the old deprecated API and the knockout command

01/21/2020: Defense Unit reached 2500 servers
04/20/2020: Defense Unit reached 3420 servers!
06/01/2020: Release of https://servers.delta-velorum.com/

- v4 : Trading, translations, servers re-worked and our own taming calculator
- v4.3 : Timers/reminders
- v4.4 : Server watcher and custom prefix

What's next? After 2 years there's still much more to add. Updates will now be released on a monthly basis instead of weekly/semi-weekly, this means that you will still get the regular amount of updates but they will be released as one large update instead of several smaller updates.

Thanks everyone for this amazing experience!
