  1. Why are you asking then in the xbox forum? There is a PC section for this and the wiki on server configuration explains how to cluster using steam. https://ark.gamepedia.com/Server_Configuration
  2. Scroll down, click the category you want > click show > Class Name Column.
  3. Know bug with hosting via windows 10. You have to close ark and restart the server.
  4. Don't even attempt to do this with windows 10 version of Ark, it is basically impossible to do it right. Without command startup access you can't cluster. Only the steam version of ark and hosted Nitrado servers can do this.
  5. In excel or google sheets. 1. Go here first https://ark.gamepedia.com/Item_IDs and copy the "Class Name" Ids into column A of excel or google sheets. 2. In column B type this formula: ="ConfigOverrideItemCraftingCosts=(ItemClassString="""&A1&""",BaseCraftingResourceRequirements=((ResourceItemTypeString=""PrimalItemResource_Fibers_C"",BaseResourceRequirement=1.0,bCraftingRequireExactResourceType=false)))" 3. Fill down/copy the formula down for each item you wish to convert to 1 fiber. 4. Copy column B into the game ini file. Extra tip: if you want to change it something else besides fiber or change the quantity just replace the type string with a different Class Name ID from the step 1. To change the quantity required change the baseresourcerequirement from 1.0. ((ResourceItemTypeString="PrimalItemResource_Fibers_C",BaseResourceRequirement=1.0,bCraftingRequireExactResourceType=false))) You can also add more than one crafting item requirement per item by adding more commas and repeating this string ((ResourceItemTypeString="PrimalItemResource_Fibers_C",BaseResourceRequirement=1.0,bCraftingRequireExactResourceType=false))) A simple google search explains all this. https://ark.gamepedia.com/Server_Configuration#ConfigOverrideItemCraftingCosts
  6. To cluster maps with windows 10, there isn't an official/easy method. 1. You need to have a dedicated machine or virtual machine per map with its own downloaded version of the game and unique xbox gamertag hosting it. 2. You cant officially link the clusters together through command startup access since windows 10 doesn't have access like Nitrado/Steam. 3. What I have seen in the past is using a Discord bot, users say a command to transfer maps in discord, and the discord bot copies and cuts the player data from one map file folder and pastes it into the other map folder but it would sometimes break/bug out. The users can't go to a drop/obby and actually see the other servers listed like typical cluster maps. There isn't a simple link to this method, it is all made custom setup but that is the gist if you want to try it yourself.
  7. Nitrado uses a different version than xbox/windows 10 hosting. Nitrados build is more similar to steam's version in that it runs headless (no gpu required) and has access to the command startup arguments which the windows 10 version only has access to game.ini and gameusersettings.ini only. Without command startup arguments, controlling events, clustering, RCON, is impossible with xbox/windows 10 hosting. Also their build allows them to run multiple servers on a single machine easily since they don't require a xbox hosted account per server. It is a clear advantage Nitrado has for xbox hosting and most likely results in more revenue for them. Xbox/windows 10 hosting is severely gimped.
  8. If you don't put it under the correct script header it won't work. Make sure to read the gamepedia server wiki carefully.
  9. I think majority of people lost their characters that had a lot more time in then compared to people with characters built after 8/8. Can't please everyone, only target the majority I think was their strategy. Sorry you lost your new recent couple day old character. Before the patch some people lost years old characters.
  10. Close the game first, make the changes, save the ini files. Then relaunch the game.
  11. 1. adjust your ini setting and lower graphics and everything is revealed. Eg no textures/trees/rocks load, easily see under the map, inside caves, etc. 2. Every base is a target for Veteran pvper, 1. because low key bases sometimes have loot 2. why not, nothing else to do than to knock down other's people sand castles because you are bored. 3. don't want to give new players the chance to become competition so hit/knock them down while they are new/just getting started so they can never progress. To OP's comment, yes raiding is severely unbalanced and gets progressively worse with every new DLC if you are building. Ark is truly, the best defence is a good offense mentality. If you aren't blowing things up and setting others back, you will just get left behind. There is a reason every mega tribe has retreated to caves instead of building surface bases, because defending even one entrance with the current meta (titans/meks/owls/gasbags/quetz hatchframes/turret cap limit) is already a challenge, trying to defend a surface base with multiple points of attack is futile.
  12. Yep, I have always used tscon to disconnect from RDP.
  13. Microsoft updated the way rdp works. You need to make sure when diconnecting the account is still logged and not on the lock screen otherwise you get 255 ping and the symptoms you are experiencing with the new windows update.
  14. Everything wrong with the new xbox/win 10 patch so far Way to go Wildcard, do you even own a xbox to test things???? Xbox Patch Notes: https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/forums/topic/166427-xbox-patch-notes-client-7909-server-7909/ Current Version: 790.9 - 8/8/19 Fixed Xbox dedicated server failing to save on Valguero (didn't fix, still erases dedicated saved data on windows 10 at least and single player data on xbox) Fixed issue with invisible Ice Wyverns on Valguero (now can't see fire dragons) Fixed issue with Ice Wyvern eggs appearing as boxes Fixed occasional invisible brood mother (still not always showing up) Longneck Rifle armor penetration increased by 40% (which now damage tek/metal/etc structures) Fabricated Sniper Rifle armor penetration increased by 25% (which now damage tek/metal/etc structures) Ice Titan freeze ability reduced to 12 seconds Plant Y trap time reduced to 10 seconds Shadow Steak Saute light sensitivity removed Forest Titan can no longer grab targets through Tek Shields Forest Titan can no longer grab players who are piloting Meks ..... Other issues: 1. You can now craft cryopods in supply drops on any map (at least on Valguero as I tested) under the " weapons" folder. https://ibb.co/Q6kDCGS https://ibb.co/Csvpg6 2. Primitive Plus can't see brick structures 3. Characters are erased and single player game data erased. 4. Duping still not fixed, so therefore server transfers still closed. 5. Nitrado unofficial down.
