  1. The problem with ideas is: Everyone has them. There is this misconception that ideas are very valuable, that's not the case. Making them reality is the hard part. And if you say right from the start you are not interested to invest time and effort, well probably no one will be interested to pick up your idea. If you are not into the technical aspect of modding, you still could make a concept, draw how the GUI should look, go into detail about the features, think about if it could be exploited and how to prevent that, etc.

    Ichthyornis - pro and cons

    What you describe is not how they work. So this is pretty weird, i would think you got a bugged ichthyornis there. The Pegomastax steals and runs away. The Ichthyornis does not do that. It does steal consumables (whole stack) and consumes it. You can't recover it, it will also not fly away but just do a circle and likly return. It has a chance to knock the item you have equiped in your hands, out of your hands, it doesnt steel anything thats not a consumable. It will only knock it out of your hand if you hold it. That makes it very usefull in PvP to unarm your enemies.

    Unicorns bug (?)

    There is a server option to make tamed unicorns not block a wild one to spawn. It's only for Ragnarok. I believe the spawn on the other maps was changed to not be blocked by tamed ones. But i am not 100% sure. [Ragnarok] AllowMultipleTamedUnicorns=true

    Single Swing High Ore Nodes Massacre

    Well you can activate harvest clamping, it's a server setting, but then you can't overharvest anymore, meaning you will only get around 260 per node, no matter how many swings you need. This clamping was actualy put in to fix the issue but players complained that melee doesnt matters anymore, so wildcard disabled it on official. 520% for a anky isnt a lot. Get a pair with descent base damage and breed them for extra 20% to the damage stat and another 30% rider damage bonus.

    Single Swing High Ore Nodes Massacre

    Yes, thats normal. It's because of the overharvesting. With two swings, the first swing left only little health to the node and the second swing harvested more than health because it did more damage than the health left. It's called overharvesting. Just continue to put points into melee. You will get back to more metal.

    Insane Building

    I have build in this cave and you dont need a single pillar actualy. You can lay down foundations in the water and build a wall up, so the ceilings are connected to the foundations via the wall. I used that technic also to build a plattform over the water on red obelisk on island. You should build more than one "wall pillar" to not have a single point of failure. Also i use a tek shield to cover most of that hole. Since i play on a server with S+, the S+ tek shield is cheap to maintain as it can run by the tek generator. Still the big cave is hard to defend, you should also block of the 4 entries to the back of the cave, that is easier to defend. So you get a outer and inner defense perimeter. I am not at home, so i can't take screenshots right now. But you can see what i mean by skipping a little bit through this video:

    How Long Are Your Days and Nights?

    Na, just use a egg collector mod. I run my unofficial cluster with vanilla settings for day and night. There are actualy some mechanics like the Megalosaurus that are impacted if you change it. And changing it for eggs to not incubate is overkill. You are making a big change that impacts much more than just incubation.
  8. We got a "Export Dino Data" option on every dino now. What does it do?
  9. No, it's right on point. The problem is missing administration on officials and this is something that will not change. It's something players complain about for more than 2 years and after release it didnt got better. The solution is to play on properly administated servers, you only find them on unofficial.
  10. Well, try some unofficials.
