      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

  1. Please add a server cVar which scales the stack size of items in the game. This has been a request of mine for a couple years now but seems to always get pushed to the side or ignored. There are so many addons that do this when the server can do it on the back end instead.
  2. Just a quick settings question

    Doesnt seem to do anything over 14. Setting that number any higher than 7 has drawbacks. Levels of dinos start to exceed 1000, which causes them to be reset upon server restart.
  3. Server FPS question

    I believe I mentioned this before... I guess it wasnt here on the Ark Forums but your CPU provides minimal gains to your Ark Server. Ive had very old machines hosting ark servers that ran fantastic. Ive spent numerous hours hosting Ark servers since Ark has come out more than half of those hours were spent tweaking the engine. Several NON-Ark developers working with me to increase server performance. It took hours upon hours of tinkering to achieve 450+FPS on an ark server. However it does put a much heavier load on your CPU and uses significantly more ram. My highest achieved FPS on an empty ark server is 1248 My highest achieved working FPS for 47 people online is just over 400 All this talk about server affinity and server cores and highest CPU ghz, is mostly rubbish. Having a super epic cpu provides minimal gains. I would NOT recommend hosting many ark servers on the same pc. The player experience will quickly decline.
  4. Interactive ARK Maps

    This would be nice if it supported ragnarok
  5. ARK: Server API V2.0

    This is absolutely amazing. Why it is not more recognized is beyond me. This is extremely powerful. I wanted to thank you for the work that was put into this extension for ark. Does any instability come from using this , Cant it be used to do other things such as modify other things in game such as item stack sizes and such ?
