    Issues and Bugs

    I run a Prim + server and there are many issues. I will put them in a list to make it easy. Items Fresh Poultry - eating raw has do side effect Using Prim+ Consumables to tame is unbalanced Many items cannot be colored Event Skins do not show in the cooking pot (look in features for better detail) Market Stall and Trade Boxes are either unclear how to use or broken Mailbox is broken Vanilla Items - Some items cannot be placed or used even with the AdminCheat GiveEngrams or adding them to the server on Prim+. Prim+ Items - Items cannot be placed or used even with the AdminCheat GiveEngrams or adding them to the server on vanilla. Preserving Salt - Cannot be placed into any type of storage besides Vessels on Prim + ATV - When Spawned they are extremely buggy Beeswax - Impossible to obtain without spawning it in. Preserved Meats - Trying to make salted, cured, or preserved meats are unbalanced and not clear which container does which (Preserving Campfire, Preserving Bin, Smokehouse) Beds - No bed in the game has the "lay down" feature Arrows - Feathered and Obsidian Arrows do little extra damage since the nerf. Basic and Narc arrows are fine, but Feathered and Obsidian have no special properties or noticeable damage buffs Beehives - Beehives have extremely low inventory space. Steel Safe - Should hold more than the Small Safe by a minimal of 50 (having the booted hp by itself isn't worth the hassle and time to farm) FIXED Lumber Build - Lumber and Lumber Glass have 3-5 different variations but no way to control which you get without trial and error and after an update it randomizes the builds we wasted time, effort, and resources to make look nice. Please just make it to where we can choose the variation when making them. Greenhouse - Health has been dropped to 100hp FIXED Wood Fences - I was going to do these separate but same issues, do not snap properly, dinos of Equus size can walk over them, and gate does nothing (should open or close) Stone Fences - I was going to do these separate but same issues, small dinos can walk over the small wall and dinos of Equss size can walk over big wall Raft and Dingy - Camera angle can make it hard to drive and are easily beached or stuck on platoons or other builds in water Tames Ability to toggle off flier nerf has not been added (must have been forgot about) If added, the Karkinos to any map they become a plague and over spawn causing the server to crash (I know it does this on Ragnarok but others say it does this on Island and Scorched) Compys and other small tames cannot be colored Summon Dino - Many Event Dinos (DodoRex, Turkey, etc.) Some Bosses, and many Dino Variants and some Dinos wont spawn via ID Queenbee - When the beehive is destroyed the queen bee will stay in place and send drones out making it impossible to tame. (To put simple hives are on cliffsides and if the bee doesn't fly down then you can't do anything about it.) Collecting Meat - Gigas and Alphas(when tamed) have issues collecting meat/inventory. Alphas do not collect anything Alpha Babies - I have found that Alphas are breedable, but Raptor eggs won't spawn when bred and alpha rexs are a hit and miss with eggs(but I haven't got one to spawn in a long time) Features In game chat is staticy and doesn't fade when walking away (all sound should fade or grow as you get closer or farther from something Ice Dungeon is buggy (falling through map in spots, walking through parts of the ground) Life Labyrinth buggy (buttons are buggy and hard to press) Not understanding how to make fortitude effect temperature. (Want to make it that 50 fortitude can let you wear ascendant iron armor every wear without burning or freezing to death or at least make it to wearing primitive fur armor works fine in Murder Snow) Dropping your inventory drops items that are in folders too Event Skins - When the ARKaeology Event started cooking pots stopped showing skins for any event skin when placing bones, easter eggs, etc. into the cooking pot. Simple Bed Engram - It seems to duplicate when crafting other engrams or learning new ones (not sure which but very annoying) Suggestions Add Steam Punk style to Prim+ or ark as a whole (items, skins, etc.) Add more dino skins or dinos (would love a Archelon or Lemur) Add the ability to make plants from other servers to spawn naturally (I want to add the aberration mushrooms and plant z to caves, swamp, and redwoods) Add the ability to make eggs from other servers to spawn naturally (I want to add RockDrake eggs to redwoods) News on new sponsored mods coming to official on consoles ark (like DragonPunk and Structures+) Add signatures to forum post with limited characters so people can advertise without being concidered spam If I missed anything comment below so devs can get onto it. Also I will change this list as thing as things get fixed or more issues are found/created
  2. I find too many issues with prim+ that seems that will never be fixed and when people try to bring issues and bugs to Moderator Attention, we are ignored so I have two questions. Can I add Prim+ engrams and items to a non Prim+ server? If so, how do I add them to the server. P.S. On a side note how do I increase the stack sizes of items. Like make thatch stack up to 1000

  7. The Legendary Unofficial PC Server NOW ON XBOX ONE We love Ark. We love Roleplay. It's like Peanut Butter & Chocolate. Welcome... to Medieval Viking RP. Play with us on: Xbox One > Ark > Primitive Plus > Unofficial PC Servers > Medieval Viking RP (SHOW PASSWORD PROTECTED SERVERS) NOW ACCEPTING CREATIVE MEDIEVAL VIKING CHARACTERS! SUBMIT YOUR CHARACTER FOR PASSWORD ACCESS TO MEDIEVAL VIKING RP AT: MEDIEVAL VIKING RP https://mvrpark.wix.com/mvrp MVRP Medieval Viking RP is an XBOX ONE ROLEPLAY PVPVE Server with the sole intention of the creating the most fun & engaging ARK experience possible. In order to achieve this, we've learned that, when certain rules are applied, we can achieve that experience. That being said, I give you... THE RULES 1: No breaking/destruction/killing of others’ property. Unless war is declared. 2: "Fur & Feather" tames ONLY. The Paracer, Ankylo, and Doedicarus are exceptions. They may be tamed as labor machines ONLY. They CANNOT be travel or battle mounts. 3: NO FLYERS IN WAR. 4: The only ridable flyers that may be tamed are the Argentavis & Pelagornis. You may obtain a Griffin or Wyvern by way of completing a quest for your Jarl. 5: If you use any taming materials (i.e. walls for traps), you must clean them up as soon as you are done using them. 6: Make your Survivor name a Viking or medieval name. 7: When you enter a Jarl's land, they can do what they want to you. BE PREPARED to meet with the Jarl in the region you choose to live in. 8: Anyone caught with an item that is not approved, or that has a tame not on the tame list will have the tame killed and possibly be banned, at the discretion of the host. 9: No guns. you can have cannons, but no firearms like the pistol and musket. 10: Mark your dinos with your initials like for GodsSilentgrace ([Gsg] Dino Name). 11: Please be respectful to others. Don’t be rude to people in chat. 12: No Drama (Outside of RP) 13: No Building on Major Resource Spawn points. 14: Don’t spam chat on the server 15: Don’t ugly up the landscape, meaning don’t toss thatch foundations and whatnot around to save land/prevent spawning. Manage your Spike Walls! 16: Do not build within render distance of another player/tribe without their permission.🙀 17: If you fail to clean up things that are temporary, there will be a penalty for your entire tribe. So please make sure you CLEAN your poop. 18: No Behemoth walls, Use Behemoth gates for doors not walls. 19: WYVERNS AND GRIFFINS ARE ONLY OBTAINED THROUGH QUESTS Be creative! This isn’t really a rule, more of a guideline. Don’t just build boxes and be finished, try to go outside your comfort zone.
  8. I’m looking to start a Nitrado cluster but paying for more slots makes it where I can’t afford multiple servers. So I’m looking for someone to cluster with but not doing outrageous boosts to all things like 50X Tame or 10X Maturation. I’m looking for someone who likes default-ish settings (willing to work for everything and not be just handed to you) with small adjustments like day scale, fuel consumption, spoil timer. For the busy gamers like me and all my friends who can’t be on 24/7. We can go over things and adjust specifics. I’d be down for PvE or PvP-Days.
  9. I’ll try to keep this brief. i host a Nitrado Xbox Cluster, and want to have “raid weekends.” The best way to achieve this I feel is to make my StructureResistanceMultiplier=0.1 so people cannot Raid others during the week. Then switch it back to default during the weekend. i had this working on a past server I hosted, but for some reason it will not work now. I am in expert mode. ive put “StructureResistanceMultiplier=0.1” in my game.ini, and no luck. I’m still able to destroy structures. then I put that code in gameusersettings.ini, also no luck. I tried putting it at the TOP of the ini, and bottom of the ini. I have no clue why it’s not working, or what I’m doing wrong that I did differently in the past that allowed this to work.. any help would be greatly appreciated. I’ve tried every other alternative to achieve raid weekends (high turret dmg during the week, ORP etc etc) but they all have draw backs, except structure resis. ORP=no alliances. No com areas. High turret dmg= people can make war quetz and go wipe a base lol. PVE during the week..just no. Then there’s no pvp outside base..boring. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. This is getting crazy frustrating.

    Ragnarok Server Crashing

    Hey, Let me start by saying my server only has about 5 people playing on it total. Playing on Xbox One. I having been having an issue with my Nitrado Server on Ragnarok. Recently my server has been crashing. The issue did not start until we moved to Rag. The Center did not crash. I have been noticing that the graphics will un-render and look "potato", which happens all the time. About once a day the server will crash or it will Dashboard players. Not sure if there is a way to fix this in the settings. I have contacted Nitrado and their response was Sadly, ARK:SE is not completely optimized at this point, and crashing does occur. Whether this crashing is due to certain actions in the game, or because of corrupted save data is unable to be determined by the log file generated during crashes.
  13. Looking for active people to join my ps4 RP server. We are still in the working state so server is under lock and key for now. https://www.facebook.com/groups/Darrisa/ 1.

Try and make your boats look like a boat not a cube floating down a river 8.Document your adventure post pics and write a little story form time to time, or take a video of the event that happens, and mainly it helps if any problem arise for example. (if your passive tame dies/killed by player for no reason) 9.Admin builds will not be attacked unless directed to in an event 10.No foundation wiping (This includes tree platforms and cliff platforms) 11.No dino gate walls (they are doors and use them as such) 12.No turrets or plant X 13.No kitting 14.Each nation has tames special to them and can only have 5 of a special tame.  Fire Nation gets Wyverns  Water Nation gets Squids and Mosasaur  Earth Nation gets Gigas  Air Nation gets Quetzals and Griffins 15.15.Royal Dinos are for Rulers only (Nation Ruler will receive one lvl 150 special tame with their nation colors and only the ruler can ride it. If any but the ruler is caught riding it, it will be killed. If killed in any way A Royal Dino can be bought for 20k ingots) 16.Each nation will have one ruler but may have up to 3 tribes of 10 people
  14. Personally I hate really high boosted dedicated servers. Official servers are trash unless you're in a mega tribe or you're one of the lucky ones who has found a decent server where duping and ddosing isn't an issue. I've rented a Nitrado server. Currently only 16 slots but I'm hoping to add more as people join. The rates are fairly low as I'd like the server to be a slow build and to actually feel like a challenge instead of having a full tek base in 20 minutes. A bit higher than official, 7x taming for example, 3x harvesting, 5x raising. Looking for people to join to add a PVP aspect to it. Add me on PSN - Jadeycakes1989 to join or search Slow Build in Unofficial PC Sessions Thanks
  15. Hello fellow Ark members, are you tired of the insane hours official requires, only to soon be wiped by some Mega tribe for lunch? Well see no further! Brothers Unlimited Gaming servers (1 Ragnarok (ORP) and 1 Island (non-ORP)) is the perfect fit for all who just want to enjoy the game, with the PVP aspect. Here on Brothers Unlimited, we have a stable amount of people always playing (15-20) and there’s always room for more people as both servers will soon be moving the player cap up to 32. about the server - x80 hatching - x25 breeding - x10 harvesting - white drop gives metal structures, metal hatchet, pick axe, crossbow, and element. - blue drop gives kibble so you can get that perfect tame! - mutated Dino’s spawn all over the map. - plenty of spaces left - Ragnarok is ORP the Island is 24/7 raid allowed. To join the server just look under PC dedicated (the nitrado ran servers) and search brothers unlimited under Ragnarok or the Island. Hope to see you there! If you have any questions message Professor7200 on Xbox.

    pve Dawn of Mcjokery

    We’ve got a 3 map cluster- Dawn of McJokery - rag and ab which are pve and the island which is pvp 🙂 so you can play how you like. Everything is boosted x10 except harvesting and experience which is x5 🙂 x2(20) on the weeks for that extra push. Drops are boosted also. We do events every now and then. We have a community area which is free for anyone to use and stocked with everything you’ll need with optional starter packs 🙂 everyone is super friendly and chilled so I’m sure you’ll get on with them 🙂 so if you wanna build, breed, and trade we’re for you. Why not give it a try? Search Mcjokery in non pc session all maps and types and you should find us 🙂 some for our FB group 🙂
  17. Hi everyone, just started a new nitrado cluster serber called "Beowulf Boosted" on xbox. The currently 2 server: island and aberration are heavily boosted, but equal. We will be adding another server, ragnarok, at the end of next month. If anyone has any questions or wants an invitation to join, just message me and I respond promptly. Lastly, there is a system in place to buy tames from an admin for metal ingots any time there is one on (quite frequently), if you are interested just ask I will give you a price list.
  18. Arkmada is a new rp server built around making a community, live as your own well created characters and live within the world of ark. The server is run under Nitrado and is also server protected to weed out any trolls, that way the people who want to play and have fun are able to. To join the server message its koala tea and then I will do a short application to personally try and get rid of trolls. Arkmada is a pvp/pve server solely based on freedom for your character. As for that I have also banned explosives and metal buildings and tek, and turrets, I want this server to not be medieval but to be restricted, at one point a discord will be set up with more extensive rules, along with character creation and things of that nature starter pack will be an argentavis, a metal set of tools, and an armor set of your choice from, fur, chitin, hide server rules. No Griefing No Metagaming(meaning do not read someones name and instantly know who they are, or read tribe logs to see who raided you, learn it through rp) No Brontos No bullying(everyone here is just trying to have fun like the rest of us) No blocking caves that have artifacts (you can build in caves just don't block artifacts) No kos( actually rp your fights) Raiding rules will be told to you in person There are other basic rules I can go over for beginners but those are the major rules server settings are listed below Xp 5 Taming 20(might change if it is too fast) harvest 7 all breeding stats are bumped higher players stats are only slightly boosted. if there are any questions please do not hesitate to ask its koala tea
  19. I own my own nitrado server and i tried setting the max player level to 120 but when i use their built in system to set the player level and needed experience for each level it only allows me to get to level 101 and then experience gain stops. I've set a max limit of 40,000,000 max experience for the player to achieve and the max isn't even close to that. I've even added in the additional 29 levels that it tells me to add in for ascensions and stuff so really its 149 levels i've put in. I haven't tweaked anything else except trying to get no foundation support in the game.ini files. Which brings me to my next point, is there anyway to edit the game files to where i don't need pillars or foundation support to build, lets say one pillar up and then build 15 ceilings in one direction off that one pillar. My server is an unofficial pc session but i play on it via Xbox X so i can't have mods to help with this. I can attach screenshots if needed to help with this situation, Thank You.
  20. Hi, I used a tool to change weight en speed stats from dino’s on our Nitrado server. Al other settings are 1 default But we noticed for Health and Melee that those stats increase rapidly. I’ve looked on ‘host your own server’ and those would be for Health 0.2 and for melee 0.17. Is that correct? We Dont want OP dino’s but they Dont have to be weak too. I’ve adjusted it and stats are bit on the low side, Thats why I doubt. if anyone could help me out with official game.ini sertings, much appreciated. Thanks in advance
  21. As Xbox players and hosts we've never had access to the .ini files to control our servers. Everything for us was pretty straightforward in terms of configuring settings, but we were also fairly limited in the amount of custom configuration we could implement. All of that of course changed when hosted servers arrived on scene, which opened us up to a whole-new-world of possibilities and headaches. I wanted to create this guide to help alleviate some of the pain associated with altering the .ini files, and to dispel some of the apprehension associated with implementing custom configuration code. I spent days researching, hours writing code, and hours fixing some of the mistakes I made. I figured some of you folks might find some value in the mistakes I've made, and what I've learned through my trial-by-fire. What follows is a sectional guide on the use of Expert Mode, and how to configure some of the more common custom configuration elements. NFD vs. Expert Mode When you first access the Nitrado Admin Console, you will find that they have created their own version of the configuration menu we had when running PDS through our consoles. It's all very straightforward and simplified, and it will look pretty familiar. For most of the settings you will want to alter, this is by far the easiest way to go about it. I have dubbed their console, Nitrado for Dummies. This is not to say you are a Dummy if you use this, but it is a simplified means of configuring the server; thus, the moniker. If you run a single server, and are apprehensive about altering the .ini files, this might be your best option for server configuration. A few things to consider before deciding which configuration mode you want to proceed with: How you want to customize your server: If you want to implement changes to level progression or custom stats, the NFD interface can be very time consuming (I'll get further into detail about these aspects later on) How many servers you run: if you run more than one server, and intend to implement customization, the NFD interface is a massive time-suck. Is your apprehension justified?: The simple reality here is that, there isn't a major difference between engaging the NFD interface, and directly manipulating the .ini files. Just like the NFD interface, every line item in the .ini file is easily identified. As an example: NightTimeSpeedScale=.7 DayTimeSpeedScale=.7 TamingSpeedMultiplier=3.0 HarvestAmountMultiplier=3.0 HarvestHealthMultiplier=3.0 Note: When switching to Expert Mode, most of the configuration options disappear from the General Settings interface. You will also notice that Engine Settings is replaced by Expert Settings. When switching from one configuration mode to the other, settings do not usually transfer. If you have been using the NFD interface for any period of time, it is probably that most configuration settings will show up in the .ini files; however, custom level progression and other custom configurations may not. Be sure to scan the .ini files to ensure that your server is configured according to your desires, check it again, and then proceed. Expert Mode Sounds fancy, right: Expert Mode, dun dun dun. It's neither as glamorous or as ominous as it might at first appear. If you've made it through this wall of text, and are now ready to start tinkering with the .ini files, here is where we begin. First things first, let's identify exactly what we're working with, and what goes where. To activate Expert Mode, you will navigate to the General Settings interface, click the little box at the top, and then click save. Once this is done, the pane on the left will look like: Let's go ahead and click on Expert Settings, and take a gander. You will notice that you're now nose-to-nose with an .ini file. Pretty unimpressive right? Feel free to scroll around, and familiarize yourself with what you're looking at. You'll notice that not all of your settings are here, and that's because there is more than one file in this interface. Click the area highlighted in red, and a drop down will appear. Once there, go ahead and click on Game.ini, the click Load File. You will notice that there is an Engine.ini in the drop down, but it is blank, and has nothing to do with what we're doing here. You will make use of both files in this interface when configuring your server, as they both contain different game variables. You will want to acclimate yourself with both of these files, so you know where everything is when you need to alter a variable. Note: Under GameUserSettings.ini you are going to see all manner of things you might be tempted to tinker with. Avoid altering settings directly under the following sections: [/Script/ShooterGame.ShooterGameUserSettings] [ScalabilityGroups] [/Script/Engine.GameSession] Alterable variables fall below the following sections: [SessionSettings] SessionName=[US] Ark FTW-Ragnarok (this is the name of your server, and can be changed at your leisure) [ServerSettings] (many of the settings you found under General Settings are now found here, and they can all be altered) AutoSavePeriodMinutes=15.000000 (this can be altered, but I have read there may be some performance related issues in so doing, so probably don't) In order to make any changes to these files, you're going to need to completely stop your server. Once the server is completely stopped, you can make any necessary alterations to the .ini files. Once those alterations have been made, click Save, and then go have yourself a cup of coffee. Nitrado recommends that you wait around 4 minutes before bringing your server back up, as the backend has to make conversions. I also always run a server check any time I make any changes, which is probably a good habit to acquire. If you don't wait, you may end up with corrupted data, so wait the 4 minutes. Now, let's talk about some of the custom configurations you can make, and some of the resources I've found helpful. Level Ramp Overrides This is just a fancy way of identifying the option to add a custom level scheme to your server, and it works for both Players and Dinos. I'm going to break this down into three sections: Players and Dinos, Engrams, and Resources...oh my? Players and Dinos How you proceed here will be largely dependent on the type of server you run. Using the Overrides you can add more levels, reduce the total number of levels, and completely reshape the way you progress through those levels. Altering the Dino progression scheme is straightforward; not so much for players. The game reserves 30 levels for ascension, so you need to keep this in mind when you're deciding on a max level. The easiest way to explain it is: If you want a max server level of 150, after ascension, you will simply add 150 levels If you want a max server level of 150, before ascension, you will need 180 levels in total Ramps Another factor to consider is how you want your ramp to work. What is a ramp you ask? Simply put, it is the increase in experience required per level. You can effectively create any ramping scheme you want with the override. The vanilla progression system uses a progressive ramp with a steep curve towards the end. I use the vanilla ramp up through 115, and then a wave scheme thereafter. Maybe you want a linear ramp where each level requires the same amount of experience. The world is your oyster here, so do whatever feels good to you. Code Now let's talk a bit about code, shall we? The method for coding is linear, but it is time consuming. There is an override variable for both Players and Dinos, and you will need to create a block of code for each if you intend to create custom level schemes for both. If you elect to override the vanilla level cap and progression, your code block MUST start at level 0, and MUST include every-single level you want to have on your server. I made the mistake of starting my code block at a specific level, instead of coding every level, and I magically transported every logged in player to level 82. So what does the code look like? Glad you asked: LevelExperienceRampOverrides=(ExperiencePointsForLevel[0]=5,ExperiencePointsForLevel[1]=20,ExperiencePointsForLevel[2]=40,ExperiencePointsForLevel[3]=70 As you can see, there isn't anything overly complicated about the actual syntax of the code. If you've noticed something odd however, you're right to be suspicious. Level 0. Well, there is no Level 0 in the game, so what on-earth is that for? When you first spawn on the beach, you are already at level 1, so it seems odd that this wouldn't start at level 2, right? Level 0 in this code block represents level 2 in-game. So if you are coding these blocks, always subtract 2 from the max level: If you want 180 total levels, your code block will start at Level 0 and end at Level 198. Engrams Points Now that you've coded out your level progression system, what about engram points? Just like with levels, you can employ any engram point scheme your wee heart desires, and it is all linear: OverridePlayerLevelEngramPoints=8 OverridePlayerLevelEngramPoints=8 OverridePlayerLevelEngramPoints=8 OverridePlayerLevelEngramPoints=8 OverridePlayerLevelEngramPoints=8 OverridePlayerLevelEngramPoints=8 OverridePlayerLevelEngramPoints=8 OverridePlayerLevelEngramPoints=8 OverridePlayerLevelEngramPoints=12 OverridePlayerLevelEngramPoints=12 OverridePlayerLevelEngramPoints=12 Each line ties directly to a level, and in order. So, the first line is the number of engram points you gain at Level 0 in your level code block, and so on. Your engram points code block should match your level code block in terms of numbers: If you have 198 levels written into your code block, you will need 198 lines in your engram points block if you want each level to come with engram points. Resources The following are some of the things I found useful when setting up my server's progression scheme: Ark's vanilla level scheme from the Wiki Code Generator Tool Note that the level scheme is out of date, so you will need to adjust if you intend to use the vanilla progression scheme up through any particular level Also note that, the site has other tools for custom settings aside from levels and engram points Server Configuration Specifics from the Wiki More to follow...

  23. Hey all was just browsing through Nitrados Wiki page on CrossArk Clusters for xbox and it says that having a password on clustered server can cause issues. This is a joke right? Can I really not have a password if I want to cluster my server? I just purchased a second server in preparation for Abberation and now I read this BS. Please tell me its not true!!! I run a private password protected PVE server and absolutely need to be password protected. @Nitrado @NitradoAndre @NitradoSupport Please tell me I haven't wasted all my time and money for it to be ruined by something so simple.
  24. OK what I am doing with our server is taking all the Dinos out of the game and only leaving mammals reptiles and insects, so no rex or allo , raptors or anything. I haven't had a problem stopping them from spawning so that's all good . using this sort of command NPCReplacements=(FromClassName="Dilo_Character_BP_C",ToClassName="") but I can not seem to substitute other creatures in their place. example is remove dilo and have jerboa spawn where it was. I have tried this command. NPCReplacements=(FromClassName="Dilo_Character_BP_C",ToClassName="Jerboa_Character_BP_C") but it does not work. So I tried this. ConfigAddNPCSpawnEntriesContainer=(NPCSpawnEntriesContainerClassString="DinoSpawnEntriesSwamp",NPCSpawnEntries=((AnEntryName="otter",EntryWeight=0.00001,NPCsToSpawnStrings=("otter_Character_BP_C"))),NPCSpawnLimits=((NPCClassString="otter_Character_BP_C",MaxPercentageOfDesiredNumToAllow=0.01))) I didnt find any there but it was so over grown it was hard to tell so i moved to scotland to try again. and did this. ConfigAddNPCSpawnEntriesContainer=(NPCSpawnEntriesContainerClassString="DinoSpawnEntries_Ragnarok_Scotland",NPCSpawnEntries=( (AnEntryName="Snail",EntryWeight=1.0,NPCsToSpawnStrings=("Achatina_Character_BP_C")), (AnEntryName="beaver",EntryWeight=0.25,NPCsToSpawnStrings=("Beaver_Character_BP_C")), (AnEntryName="bigfoot",EntryWeight=0.001,NPCsToSpawnStrings=("Bigfoot_Character_BP_C")), (AnEntryName="otter",EntryWeight=0.05,NPCsToSpawnStrings=("Otter_Character_BP_C")), (AnEntryName="jerboa",EntryWeight=0.1,NPCsToSpawnStrings=("Jerboa_Character_BP_C"))), NPCSpawnLimits=( (NPCClassString="Achatina_Character_BP_C",MaxPercentageOfDesiredNumToAllow=0.1), (NPCClassString="Bigfoot_Character_BP_C",MaxPercentageOfDesiredNumToAllow=0.001), (NPCClassString="Beaver_Character_BP_C",MaxPercentageOfDesiredNumToAllow=0.25), (NPCClassString="Otter_Character_BP_C",MaxPercentageOfDesiredNumToAllow=0.05), (NPCClassString="Jerboa_Character_BP_C",MaxPercentageOfDesiredNumToAllow=0.1))) just to test it out in a area where new spawns would be easy to spot. and still nothing. could it being a primitive plus map have anything to do with the problem? or have I mistyped something in the commands? does the spawner name need to be a set name or do we just make it up? I found no info on that either.
  25. Ty for reading first off. Friend and i are renting a server on Nitrado for ark. i adjusted all the setting so its boosted. Now, i attempted to change the engrams and i screwed it all up now. i changed the amount of engrams it cost's to unlock the shield and thats it. When i loaded the server on ps4, the only engrams i have is the shied and the shield alone. i went back to nitrado and took of the adjustment and re loaded server. Its gone but now i have nothing. clicking default setting and restarting server on the site still does nothing. i tried pressing default setting on both engram entries and the one that says " with names " i restarted character knowing im losing everything and ya, i lost my house and still no engrams. Anyone know how to put engrams back on without entering the value for everyone. thats my only solution so far but its gunna take about 2 hours cause the page refresh's after changing a setting. Thanks for reading and for the support. once its fixed and u wanna play search " Ca - admin recruiting "
