Hi guys I'm just here to promote my Ark server, I gotta got sick and tired of bad admins/hosts and wipes so i decided to host myself (again), I'm a 27 Y/O previous host from back during the Xbox One PDS Corruption Spree.

  4. Are you looking for a place to settle down, build elaborate structures, breed pretty dino mutations, or just kick back and have some fun, without the worry of being wiped? Well Fallen Kingdom is the place for you! Our goal is to establish a community where everyone can come to kick back and relax, without the worries that come along with playing PVP. Whether you enjoy building, breeding, bossing, taming, or just messing around, Fallen Kingdom is the perfect place for that.

Discord is our main hub for everything, from updates on any changes that may happen to the servers, notifying players when events will be happening, as well as to give our members a platform to buy/sell/trade with one another!

Our rewards shops can be found at either Blue Obelisk on Ragnarok and at the Community Center on the Center. We do not ask much apart from that you follow these simple rules which we have put into place to ensure that all our members have an enjoyable Ark experience: No land claiming or pillar spamming Do not leave tames on obelisks No blocking/building on or near obelisks or main spawns (artifacts, resources etc) Only 1 bronto per tribe Respect your admins and fellow players Please understand that although our admins are very active, they too have lives and cannot be online at all hours of the day. Our admins also enjoy playing the game themselves, but if there is anything you need urgent admin assistance with do no hesitate to message either ubisassy or kimberieyy through xbox live, or tag @admins in our discord, and someone will get to you as soon as they possibly can. We hope to see you soon!

  7. When I started my nitrado server i wanted the engrams to auto unlock and so now ill be telling you how to make this happen on your nitrado server for xbox,pc or ps4 servers. So first if you want engrams to auto unlock make sure that you are under general then turn on expert settings and save changes now under the settings tab there should be a tab called expert settings you click that now there should be a slide box that says gameusersettings.ini change that to game.ini now scroll all the way down till to the bottom click at the ned of the last setting there and hit enter and type bAutoUnlockAllEngrams=true this will allow you to unlock every engram at your level when leveling up but if you spam something into like stamina the screen will be filled with the learning of the engrams also when you reach level 100 or higher you will unlock all the tea engrams i do not know how to fix this but if you use this be aware of that. Also make sure your server was stopped when you changed the settings in the game.ini and if your server is stopped there will be an option to save changes. This is all you need to know if you want to make your engrams to auto unlock in your server. Let me know if this was helpful and bye.
  8. No sessions found

    As of 1/15/2018 I am currently unable to search for any Unofficial PC Servers on Xbox. All other server types including: Official, Player Dedicated, Non-Dedicated, Legacy, etc I can find and join. However when searching for any or all of the Unofficial PC Servers aka Nitrado servers the only search result I get is: No Sessions Found!. I have already reset my router, swapped from wifi to wired ethernet, hard reset the xbox approximately 13-15 times, and reset ark many more times than that. I know some people are having issues not finding THEIR Nitrado server, but I can't find ANY Nitrado server. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  13. It’s not considered a bug when the server doesn’t even show up right? I’ll submit a ticket but it made me chuckle so I posted for visibility. Xbox clients are now v769 but the official servers and Nitrado servers are still v768.81, so anyone who’s updated their client can’t find the servers.

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.
  17. This is a fairly new server, new and fun :). The more people that join the better I can make the server because a lot of the stats are boosted to make PVP fast paced but if there is something a player would like to suggest, message the ADMIN and Owner GAMEERTAG "Undying Savage" on Xbox.

The ADMIN will host events every weekend, hide random boxes containing prizes of various things as well as hosting a store for players to sell, buy or trade things to the ADMIN. No tribe limit, no offline protection, alliance enabled. AL PLAYERS ARE WECOME!!!!! The Server has rules and will be enforced to keep the peace. Here are the rules. Rules 1. No base wiping, unless they are continuously breaking the rules an the admin gives authorization to do so. That being said when you raid a base, make a hole get in take what you an get out. 2.

  19. 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...
