Allow console players to increase the tether distance

Suggestion

On consoles the tether makes playing on someone else's world not very fun as you need to be very close to them otherwise you get "teleported" to places you don't want to go.

Ok, I know that this will likely not work as well on the older Xbox, but definitely seems doable on the Xbox One X or Playstation Pro.  That and I know that this tether was accidently removed at one point and it did indeed work for them, it was quickly added back once that it was found out by the devs that the tether was no longer there.

In the very least allow console players to set the distance to see how playable it is, and if it doesn't work then they can change it to a playable distance.

I suspect the game would crash before the console melts down. The load would be to much & then, DC. Its not like a gas engine you are red lining or even a PC you are over clocking. Just a suspicion on my part. As far as running hot....I could fry eggs on my PS4...but thats been the case for years for me. Not 1 issue, knock on wood

The 1X was pushed in part with an extended teather on Ark as a feature putting it above the stock box. Not anymore, but its not like its rare for xbox to pull features or break promises. I guess that 1X wasnt as strong as they thought & they are worried about its limits being showcased?

So, I play ark on console, and am not a big pvp guy. I also don't like PvE, as there are pillars everywhere and nowhere to build. I would just like for non dedicated servers that I host to not have tether, as tether distance makes the game harder, and your constantly being pulled to the host. It makes the game a lot less fun than it could be. If you even just lengthened it, I would be ok with that. Because 250 Meyers is way too short, especially if you want to do 2 different things.

I havent been on ark in a long time so if it hasn't been fixed already i would like for the tether distance to be enlarged so that if i play on an ivite only world me and my friends can go anywhere instead of just staying close to the host player

the game works better with client server architecture. in single player or "co-op" you are hosting both the server and client on your console. In single player the games takes tons of shortcuts to cut down on overhead that it simply couldn't do if people were allowed to wander around freely.  with hardware it's almost always a "get what you pay for" situation.

can you get rid of the console single player border!!!

the single player border ruins the game for me and friends cause we would want to build a base in different places of the map but we can't because of the border.

could you please remove the border or make it an option to turn off

btw I play on the ps4

l just want to fry my ps4 sure there's tons of ways do it especially on ark but i want to fry it with my friends on ark with no border  give a warning for those who just like to mess with the settings like how minecraft (example minecraft does not take nearly that much as ark) does with amplifed world thats it, it warns you if you dont have a beefy computer then dont do it, long story short i want that bar ,actually i be fine if they allowed me to make it smaller every five seconds i teleport my friend that be fun too to be honest i dont evening care i was look for how to make dye with a water skin ima gonna make my house purple but then i got here

I've literally played on console before where you could increase tether distance and they removed it. It wasnt causing many, if any errors, on the original Xbox one. They probably removed it with the bigger updates because they knew the larger scaled or more detailed maps would cause problems. It sucks now but.... I'll still play. Wish they could increase it just a bit though...

ps4 tether distance

Add a tether distance bar in the general settings for ps4

Like the 30 other posts about this, console does not have the processing power to increase tether distance without chances to harm the hardware. 

It would be too much data and risk frying something.

There is a reason why there is a border. Its almost as if the console couldnt handle it. You either have to put up with the border orrent a server.
