So the move of our ARK server to a new dedicated box is done, mostly without any big problems except that you all got all extinction core engrams unlocked and the bank accounts got wiped :S

New maps:


Maps being removed:

  • Ragnarok

When?

I have the two new maps ready but they run on a completely different set of settings that I've came up with to fine tune our ARK experience meaning that for those two maps to be opened Olympus and Aberration needs to be wiped and Ragnarok removed

Some of the new features that will be available after the wipe:

  • Ascension (you can craft 3 different items each allowing you to ascend at either Gamma, beta or Alpha)
  • TEK tier unlock: at lvl 120 you can craft an item that will unlock all TEK tier items
  • OP TEK Armor: once you unlock all Extinction Core tek armor engrams you can craft the OP Tek armor that has no durability, protects against radiation and is upgradable
  • OP TEK Weapons: Tek Rifle and Tek Railgun same as the OP Tek armor require Extinction Core engrams to be unlocked first (more damage, no cooldown)
  • Tranq Railgun for fast and easy knocking out of dinos (shoots underwater, deals insane amounts of torpor compared to darts and arrows, requires tek tier to be unlocked first)
  • Harvesting resources: all harvesting is now 100% instant (was at 99% before due to our old host limitations when setting this value) and no more calculating on how much resources you should get (no more lag while someone is mining)
  • bunch of other tweaks...

Other stuff:

  • Same bank account on all servers
  • Tribe member limit set to 6
  • All engrams are being auto unlocked for each level you go up (you will still need to unlock a couple of them manually)
  • Teleporter pad limit per tribe set to 15
  • If you find a place that is rich in resources or has artifacts and you wish to share it with all we can place there an "admin" public teleporter that does not count towards your tribes limit

As I mentioned above for the new maps and features to go live we need a complete wipe (again, ik, sorry, get me a cookie, was still learning on how to deal with ark servers), when we will do the wipe is all up to you guys - vote bellow... Also if you want any mods to be added or stuff tweaked comment bellow with a link to the mod page...
