  1. I read there was a way to get rid of the duplicate structures. Is this only for servers or can I make it happen in Single Player as well? I've tried to put the setting in GameUserSettings.ini, but I can't see any difference. That's why I'm wondering if it works in Single Player. What does it look like when it works? How do I get it to work (if it works)?
  2. So... I'm starting a new dedicated server and I'm using S+ (because I can't go without stackable foundations and glass tier). I read that with S+, you're advised to specify AllowIntegratedSPlusStructures=false I have done this and tried to put it both under [ServerSettings] and [/Script/ShooterGame.ShooterGameUserSettings] in GameUserSettings.ini but nothing happens. Maybe, I'm just not seeing it... what's supposed to happen? I have a vanilla campfire - should that disappear? I have specified the thatch foundation vanilla and S+ engrams, should I still have both? I can choose to learn all S+ engrams and their vanilla counterparts. I was under the impression that the setting would hide the vanilla engrams that have an S+ counterpart so that I don't have a lot of duplicates, but I'm not seeing this. I assume this is a BtK error (Behind the Keyboard), but I can't think of anything else to try based on all I can find when googling. Is there anybody here that got it to work that can tell me what I'm supposed to see and maybe even point me in the right direction of what I'm doing wrong?

    Bring in more S+

    I get what you mean. Though, I can also get that they don't want to bring in the NPCs, although they're very popular, as I can see how that level of automation is contradictory to what the game is at its core (a lot of grinding, very little automation). Bringing it in would officially endorse it and I can see the point in the arguments against it, as well as (in the case with the NPCs specifically) opening up for a lot of demands of other NPCs. In general, I agree though... the things I don't find likely that they'll include for everybody, I've instead asked for as server setting so that everyone not on official can choose to have it.
  4. I actually read all of it and it's mostly a complaint about everything being pillared on PvE Console and the support never answering tickets. As for "the greatest suggestion for ark, to this date" the only thing even remotely like a suggestion was at the very end. Posting it here as a tl;dr if anyone is interested in what the post was supposed to be about.
  5. Tell me about it Thanks! I didn't know about that It's really a lot better than the one on the wiki. However, I still can't see all of the information in one screen so it falls just short of being exactly what I wanted Thank you I'm just happy if it can be of help to others!
  6. Haha, thanks! I'm #teamBritishSpelling so that explains why I'm always getting the word "fibre" wrong . Agree that it should be consistent with the game though. Uploading a new version with it fixed, thanks for noticing!
  7. So, I couldn't find a nice overview of the new kibble. The wiki could tell me which dinos wanted what kibble and I could see the ingredients, but the eggs just said the size which means I had to go to another page to look that up. That made me miss the old kibble chart... and so I decided to make my own! It was a bit tricky to get all the information I wanted into one chart so it might look a little cramped. Just putting it here in case it helps someone else! Feel free to use it as you will, but if you repost, please link back to the original. Full image here: https://imgur.com/a/iUH2bZC

    Bring in more S+

    Bring in more S+ Homestead is great! There are still a few things I'm missing though: S+ Glass walls Put them in Tek tier for all I care What I want is some actually clear glass and not the dirty greenhouse glass you can hardly see through, as well as the really nice customisation options for frames around the glass. I really do prefer it being metal tier but that I can give up if we just get them at all - they are just so pretty and allow for such amazing builds. Additionally, it would be great with a Glass XL wall (I use them in my water pens so that I can see out, while preventing Cnidaria from entering). Stackable foundations server option I get why this might not be feasible as default, but please allow server owners to enable it at will. Snapping to structures option Like how S+ Large Storage Boxes can snap to each other by the side or front, making it a lot easier to put them neatly next to each other. Toggleable with G so it's easy to turn it off to get the same behaviour as we have now. Add to this, it would be amazing if there was a toggle to align with the closest wall so that it's much easier to put structures aligned with walls if desired. Railing snap with vertical posts to ramps/staircases The Homestead model is just a rotated regular railing which looks weird. Seems like it should be a really easy fix since it exists in S+ already! S+ Dynamic Gateways Or at least something between the small dino gate and the behemoth gate. Boss fight from teleporter/transmitter server option Same as above, with the change that maybe it wouldn't be an issue any more? Either way, at least make it a server option so that server owners have the choice to enable it. S+ Bookshelf It would be nice with a metal tier book shelf, as well as a book shelf that can hold a lot more items. After all... a blueprint doesn't take that much space. Powered Dedicated Storage acts as a fridge I know this was supposed to be there and then removed so I guess that there was an issue with it... but if at all possible, I really would love for this to come back. It is Tek tier after all! I realise that a lot of people are also missing the NPCs of S+. However, as I believe they are automating too much for the devs to consider them, I've kept this list to what I believe to be realistic: the things where I can't think of anything that makes them go against what I perceive the devs' vision for the game to be. The top two points are my main ones. With these two, I could leave S+ behind and only go with vanilla... without them, I can't. So if the devs decide to not do this... I'd love a mod that does it! Something more lightweight than S+, but mostly that is without all the duplicates I get now.
  9. A few server settings I'd love to see: Allow/disallow stackable foundations I get that you might not want it on official, but as a server owner, I would like to be able to do it. Homestead was great, but I can't move from S+ without this. Allow transfer to Boss Arenas from the Tek Transmitter/Teleporter Honestly, I don't mind either. Again, I understand why you might not want it on official, but why can't we server owners choose? Same as above, can't move from S+ without this. Change duration and frequency of fog I know I can turn it off completely, but that feels quite cheaty. However, I'm really considering it because they last way too long (playing on The Island) and happen way too often! Allow saving of server password Server setting allowing previously connected survivors to connect to a server without having to reenter the password (unless the password has changed).
  10. Yes, a server setting, please!
  11. I realise you're trying to make a joke, but addressing what you said - if you have to look something up, it definitely doesn't fall under "intuitive". Very true. The game company I work for then makes sure to be very clear so that the user's don't have to make mistakes that are easily prevented. Not doing so, while you can justify it however you want, is still bad design. I might have worded it too harsh, my mistake! Quickly going through the thread, I can't see the things that made me feel like it was over-the-top whining and I probably mistook it for some of the indeed whiny posts I see here from time to time. In general, I don't have much patience with people being angry as all hell because the devs don't focus on their particular issue. I agree that it feels like their priorities are on new things, which the wrong priority as far as I'm concerned. I wouldn't even mind them taking a year of no updates to completely rewrite large parts of their engine (like Starbound did), but I imagine a lot of players would take issue with that.
  12. I really love this, especially the (by me) highlighted part. I get you who say it's not a bug and that you should know better, but is it really necessary for this game to be even more punishing to inexperienced players? Sure, most of us have so many hours few seem to remember how it was just starting out. Having that said, whining about it being the devs fault is just as unnecessary. If you had just said "This happened, it's really not necessary for this to be an issue, would you mind considering fixing it so that this mistake doesn't have to happen", then I sure would agree! Because it really is a mistake that is avoidable in so many ways, from a warning text in the UI when there's only one player left (then you have a lot of space in the member list! ) and a confirmation dialog making sure this is what the player wants to handling the case in some way (like giving all dinos and structures to the last player). Not only would this help a lot of players, especially inexperienced ones that are in desperate need of being less punished, it would also help WC themselves as it would mean fewer support tickets... which in turn would benefit everybody else ever in need of filing a support ticket!
  13. You already said that... in its own thread
  14. Suggestion forum improvements I really love the new functionality of the suggestion forum and think it's way more useful than it was! Because I like it so much, I think of how to make it better and have a few smaller suggestions: Sorting option for "Most voted the last X" where X can be day, week, month, year, or whatever My intention with this is to have an option to find new things, yet things that are somewhat popular, without having to sift through the many posts you've seen so many times. Force tagging of the posts as either PC, Console or both and Switch/Mobile so that it's clear which versions the suggestion is for Allow filtering on the above tags so that I can see all suggestions that would affect PC, for instance
  15. The expansions are essentially the maps. Your friends will still be able to play with you but they won't be able to go with you to the other maps. If you go to another map and bring back some map specific dinos, they can use those dinos. If you don't go to another map, it won't affect your game in any way - you all already have all the assets installed with your game.
