      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. Building Advice Needed

    It's a good thing to know how to build in vanilla though. If a mod fails, then everything in that mod will be at risk.
  2. Building Advice Needed

    Just something else... Prepare to expand... Your initial floorplan will NEVER be your final floor plan. Snap everything together. If you don't you end up with trouble later on. Build in wood/thatch first, then upgrade to stone/metal.
  3. Check your network isn't set to Public, as it makes network rules a lot more strict.
  4. Setting Up a Cluster Issues

    Yea. It's a lot simpler in the long term as it can self install to cron, do auto backups, and auto mod and server update. When you do make it, just have all the 'default' config files ready, (Game.ini and GameUserSettings.ini) The config files for arkmanager are for commandline and other options. It's easier to run multiple copies of the server folders, though it can apparently share them. The steam app side of things is also taken care of by this.
  5. Setting Up a Cluster Issues

    I don't even use this, I just use Ark Server Tools https://github.com/FezVrasta/ark-server-tools
  6. What is mutating and how can I do it?

    Color mutations are always better. Screw the dodo, go for Raptor/Dimorphodon.
  7. about dino render ghosting

    SNAP your fences... So often I see people simply place fence foundations, not realizing that if it's not snapped, then it's not going to stop anything. And if you need, a turtle, or other similarly tanky dino, in a 2x2x2 stone box, with 1 or 3 dinos following it, then all the rest following those who are on direct follow is not something to be scoffed at. Also pillars in the back of the fence will make it a little more 'thick' and things won't find it so easy to get out.
  8. Last dungbeetle cage I had was in the middle of my egg farm. Made them a 3x2 box, and had the feed trough in the back edge. Never had issue with them escaping, but had issues opening the door at times.
  9. Fish basket & zip-line for the Island

    It's only 2 for what you want currently... Do it, and it will become expected. I used the salts example, as merely an example of what people were wanting when Scorched hit... 'Just' those... Then a mod hit, making it allowed on all, and people left it at that.
  10. Fish basket & zip-line for the Island

    You'll just have to make the fish-baskets and bring them back. It's not as if preserving salts or anything like that on scorched, came out on Island. Sort of makes the DLC purchase pointless, if a few weeks after it's released that the Devs simply give it out for everyone.
  11. Spawn points and safe houses

    Pretty sure they'll spawn inside... I have a tribe that built on one of the spawn locations, and all the time someone spawns in the storage room and can't get out. Also I think that room, has the inside buff.
  12. Means I have to go through and name things... Could you also look at how you 'add' into the library? If you have multiple clusters json outputs, the next import/add from saved library makes all the rest 'unavailable'. Could be something with the importing method for both the save files and the json ark-tools. Good job though, and thanks for looking at the JSON importing It's so good.
  13. I've imported json values, but end up with Ovis coming up as Abberant Paracer, The app also shows I have Achatina and Mosasaurus that I don't have. (Can't figure which species it's confusing)
  14. Long loading time

    Get an SSD. To lump the DLC maps, (Island, Center) in with Prim+, is very naive. Prim+ is known to take a very long time to load, and those 'old maps' as you even said yourself, are old. Both of these would be 'abandoned' for different reasons.
  15. Ice Wyvern

    Try wiping all wild dinos to try get a fresh spawn, but there's a ridge above the cove, which is up in the ice, and that's where I've seen lots of ice wyverns spawn and drop eggs. The eggs sometimes end up under a little ledge. Somewhere around 30,67 ish on https://ark.gamepedia.com/Resource_Map_(Ragnarok).
