Manitoba-Based PS4 Ragnarok Map (with better rates)

Recommended Posts

Manitoba-Based PS4 Ragnarok Map (with better rates)

Our Manitoba-based PS4 Ark Ragnarok Server is up and running! (Connection details at bottom)

We've recently switched back over from Extinction. We have a core group of 6+ people that play regularly and at our peak we have 10+ players. Anyone is welcome to join as long as they're not unjustly being a sausage towards other players.

I have an extra PS4 that only has Ark installed on it that is used as a dedicated server. Before the end of July the server will be moved from a wireless connection to a hard-wired internet connection to increase stability.

 

We run admin-created events decently often. Mega mazes, hidden loot boxes, dinosaur swap-and-shops, arena combat, and more. If you have ideas, let us know. We will also be spawning starter loot boxes on beach locations for new players if requested. Nothing special in them, just starter tools and some gear. Starting out with dinosaurs at 150 can be tough.

 

In the next few weeks we will either be adding spawns for non-Ragnarok dinosaurs such as snow owls, karkinos, abberant variants, etc.. If that does not work, then there will be a dinosaur exchange list posted.

In the past we have had a policy of trading 3 specific dinosaurs for a new one at the lowest level in a cage. Ex: Bring me 3 Griffins (level 150, 160, 175) and I'll spawn a 150 Snow Owl in a cage for you to tame, etc. We'll figure something similar out in time. Suggestions are welcomed. I'd like to see more variety in the map.

Someone traded up to a Phoenix once and it was pretty interesting.

 

Note: Any dinosaurs or items lost due to game bugs will be replaced by an admin. Just take a video with the Share button and let someone know here or in-game. It hasn't happened yet, but game bugs shouldn't ruin the fun.

 

The complete list of server settings are below. If something is not listed, assume it is set to default. Nothing is too crazy. It still takes work, but nowhere near as much as on a live server.

Because not everything is available on every map, we are always limited things that the current map doesn't have. Ragnarok is pretty complete, but there are some things that are sorely missed from Extinction, Aberration, and Valguero.
To remedy this, the following setup will be put into place over the next 2 weeks:

1 - DINOSAUR SEEDING - Select dinosaurs from other expansions will be "seeded" into areas of the map so that they can take over an area and be tameable. Don't kill what you don't need because they don't have respawn points. It is possible to hunt them into extinction.

2 - COMMUNITY CHEST - A vault with blueprints will be set up on the bridge in Central Canyon (39.6 Lat 38.3 Lon) with blueprints for items that can be crafted using Ragnarok materials, but who's engrams aren't available to be learned on Ragnarok. Please only take 1 of each. They are re-usable. Important note: The PIN code is 1234.

3 - SWAP AND SHOP - A trade system will be set up for dinosaurs and items that are not craftable or obtainable in Ragnarok. More may be added as we progress, but the list is decently complete for now. Post in this thread when you want to make the trade and an Admin will contact you. Please be patient, I am the primary admin and play while my 8 month old is napping (still very often, but unpredictable).

 

DINOSAUR SEEDING
Snow Owl -To be re-seeded near the base of the mountains near the green obelisk.
Gasbags - Desert locations tbd
Karkinos  - To be re-seeded onto some of the islands in the south-west corner of the map.
Roll Rat - Forest locations tbd
Ravager - To be re-seeded into the plains near the red obelisk.

 

COMMUNITY CHEST
Dino Leash Blueprint
Tek Bridge Blueprint
Snow Owl Saddle Blueprint
Deinonychus Saddle Blueprint

 

SWAP AND SHOP

Stone Cliff Platform for 1000 stone + 1000 wood + 250 cementing paste

Glider Suit for 100 Metal + 25 Crystal

Zipline for 2 Grappling Hook

Glow Stick for 3 Crystal

Shag Rug for 150 Pelt, Hair, or Wool (no hide)

Rock Drake Saddle for Mosasaur Saddle

Karkinos Saddle for Spino Saddle

Deinonychus Baby for Wyvern Baby

Featherlight for Otter

Glowtail for Dung Beetle

Shinehorn for Ovis

Phoenix for 1 of each flavour of wyvern (fire, lightning, poison, frost)

Rock Drake Baby for Wyvern Baby

Aberrant Variation Dinosaur for Baby of Same Species

on the server now really enjoying it. Would it be possible to add in an admin shop so i can buy and sell my gear?

Something like this is actually coming. I'm working on the details right now. Unfortunately, PS4 does not support mods like PC does so we can't have something automated, but there is a plan for swapping. Details to come very soon.

Edit: Posted above.

cool, thanks for that also wondering what the spawn rates of pteranodons are. Asking because I can't find any in beach areas

Spawn weight should be heavy. I have it set to max spawns on the slider.

The spawn locations for the Pteranadon can be found on the Wiki.

 

I also recommend installing SA Companion on your phone. It tells you all about the dinosaur including taming and birthing times, and has a link to the wiki page at the bottom of the final tab.

Yeah it was a failed idea. It was immediately taken advantage of. It will be re-enabled very soon.

in lieu of the community chest, the blueprints will be spawned for people as requested.

Notice: August 2, 2019 the server will briefly go down to relocate the PS4 and upgrade the internet line. This will be done when no users are noted online.

- Offline Raid Protection has been re-enabled.

- All wild dinos were destroyed by admin to force respawns after it was reported that wyverns had not been spawning in the volcano area

- Over the next week Snow Owls, Gasbags, Karkinos, Roll Rats, and Ravagers will be re-seeded into the map (Ravager spawns will be reduced as they took over the area too aggressively).

 

Please report any bugs that you notice so they can be corrected. Please do not "troll" other players (unless they're your friends).
