  1. Feel free to send a friend request to TJServer. However, the only time it is accessed is to perform updates or restarts. We will attempt to accept all friend requests every time it is accessed.
  2. Apologies. We were having some visibility issues with the server. Some people could see it, some couldn't. It was restarted this afternoon and everyone seems to be able to see it now.
  3. See update to top post. 1/24/2020 22:15 CST
  4. We absolutely do. Right now there are around 10 people total playing on the server and I haven't seen any intentional PvP so far. There have been a few accidental kills from gathering pets and base defenses automatically firing, but its a pretty laid back server.
  5. Our Manitoba-based PS4 Ark Valguero Server is up and running! (Connection details at bottom) We have an extra PS4 that only has Ark installed on it that is used as a dedicated server. We have the server set to PvP, which is mainly just for friends to be able to mess with each other. This is not intended to be a hardcore PvP server and bullying will not be tolerated. Anyone abusing offline raid protection will be removed from the server or put back into the stone thatch age. 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. The 10 floor mega maze has been the most popular event so far. In the next few weeks we will also be adding spawns for non-Valguero dinosaurs such as Griffins. 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. Generic Server Settings Difficulty level - 1 Dinos up to 150 Crosshairs Enabled Friendly Fire Disabled Show Map Player Location Enabled Corpse Locator Enabled Multiple Platform Floors Enabled Unlimited Respecs Enabled Cave Building Enabled Cave Flyer Enabled Flyer Carry Enabled Non-Permanent Diseases Only Floating Damage Text Supply Crate Loot Quality - 4.0 (up from 1) Fishing Loot Quality - 6.0 (up from 1) Fuel Consumption Interval Multiplier - 2.25 (up from 1) Much less fuel required.

  6. 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).
  7. 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.
  8. Update to post 2 2019-07-24 - Ravagers added - Karkinos added - Offline raid prevention disabled (in order for tribe alliances to work and everyone to have access to the community chest)
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
