Hello again survivors! Okay it is not "THE End" End, but it is an end of an era. This Thursday (January 18) we will be wiping our hived Ark Survival Evolved servers! After the wipe to our hived servers, we will be adding our non-wiped Aberration server to the hive. In addition to the wipe, we will be making a number of changes to our hived servers to match our Aberration server! These changes were posted in a forum topic for feedback from our players and the response was largely positive. The changes are as follows:
- Upgrade Station and Death Recovery Mods removed
- Max wild dino level dropped from 300 to 200 to compensate for no Upgrade Station
- Loot crate and fishing loot quality multiplier set to 5, also to compensate for no Upgrade Station
- Dino XP gain was reworked
- Total experience gained halved
- Aberration added to hive
- IF YOU ARE AN ABERRATION PLAYER, AFTER ABERRATION IS HIVED, DO NOT CREATE A NEW CHARACTER ON ONE OF THE NON ABERRATION SERVERS. YOUR ABERRATION CHARACTER WILL BECOME YOUR HIVED CHARACTER THAT YOU WILL USE TO TRANSFER BETWEEN THE MAPS.
*One exception from the above list is that the Joan's mod was disable on the Aberration server, and will not be removed from the rest of the hive
BUT WAIT THERES MORE!!!
So, the hive is being wiped, but - BUT... We are going to be adding a couple fun mods for these last days before the apocalypse. These two mods are Tek Helper ( https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=916807417 ) and Egg Roulette (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=905523603&searchtext=egg+roulette). We hope you guys can find ways to enjoy these last couple days with these special treats. To help you get going with them I will give you a quick teaser on each.
Tek Helper: This is a mod we used to have on the build server so some of you might be more familiar with. For those who are not, here is what it does: Element is craftable in inventory and replicator (cheaply), and all Tekgrams are unlocked for all players. So just a small change. Yet for those of you who have wanted to play around with the Tek stuff previously, but never had the chance to, or have always wanted to try out an underwater vacuum sealed base for a couple days. THIS IS YOUR CHANCE! XD
Also we will be enabling the recent S+ changes to the mutator as well and so you can play around with that stuff too.
Egg Roulette: This is a mod that I played with once on another server a while back and found super fun. How it works is that after the mod launches when dinos mate, the fertilized egg will randomly be of ANY of the available dinos (Aberration, Water, and Boss dinos excluded. Gigas, Scorched Earth/Wyverns, Titans are possible). Ever wanted to have a Wyvern with the bred stats of your Rex bloodline? Ever wanted to own a Unicorn? How about breeding two Pteras and getting a Titan? Well stop dreaming and start living, with this limited time event!
(Eggs get the same stat allocations as their parents. Because of different scaling the numbers will be different, BUT 60 points in Rex melee becomes 60 points in Wyvern melee so maybe better if you are turning a Ptera into a Titan =P.)
Get out there and have some fun!!!
