    You read it right! <ADKGamers> Mal'ganis has cleared Uldir 8/8 Normal! We know that this is a very small achievement in terms of the WoW universe, but we are happy we did it! We have started this expansion and this tier with very little, and have grown to be a solid core group for our casual raids. This is the guilds first ever Group kill screen shot! Congratulations to everyone who was involved in the kill! We look forward to moving forward and announcing a Heroic kill not to far in the future! We are currently 5/8 Heroic and going to be pushing hard! Feisty Selfie!

    Hey everyone, I have been playing WoW for about 13 years. I have raided all of BC content through current. This expansion I have finally decided to switch mains from Paladin (Prot/Ret) to Mage, hence the name. I'm also a Mel Brooks fan. I've recently apped with the wow leadership and I've been trialing for the past couple of weeks. Great group of folks. I look forward to many raid and PVP encounters with them all. IRL, I'm an IT Manager for a medium sized business. I have 2 kids, one a senior in college and the other a sophomore in high school. I live in NC but originally I'm from NY. I don't miss NY one bit. Since this is the Memorial Day holiday in the US, I hope everyone in the US reading this has a fantastic extended weekend. Everyone else, I hope you have a good weekend (albeit shorter) as well!

    LADIES AND GENTS! INTRODUCING THE GRAND THEFT AUTO V SECTION TO ADK Despite the age of the game, it has grown some popularity within our community playerbase, therefore we have decided to make it an ADK sponsored section. This is a prime opportunity to get back into the fray if you haven't played in a while. In GTA Online, we have a crew dedicated to CEO/MC businesses and other means of money making. We are always looking for people who enjoy helping others and making money themselves whether it be in freemode or missions/heists. The majority of our sessions will be dedicated to grinding. Our section will also be holding organised events sometime in the near future such as heist nights, races, and mission playlists to name a few. If you wish to join our in-game crew or become part of the section staff, please message myself or CaGregorio and we can get you situated. Future posts are to include crew expectations, common etiquette, starter/advanced guides, and more. At the moment, please follow all =ADK= rules and bylaws until we get a rules post up. Good luck and hope to see you in the streets of Los Santos!

    New Server? New Mods?

    ARK Staff want to put up another server with maybe a difference Niche of mods. Show me some mods you would like to see on a new server. Tell us what you like about the mod and other mods that might go along with it. If there any particular rates you guys would like to see differently to compliment your mods then you can let us know about that as well. For Example, Annunaki Genesis is a really cool mod because it brings a lot of different game play to ARK. It has a bunch of new Dino's new, new mechanics and new items. This mod pairs really well with ARK Advance 10, the mods tend to compliment each other with the different game play. LINKS RELEVANT MODS

    Hello Guildies! I have compiled this basic guide to using SimulationCraft and RaidBots.com in order to optimize your DPS. These methods will give you mathematical evidence can be used to make critical decisions on gear, stat priority, gems/enchants, and talents. SimulationCraft Add-on In order to run simulations, we will need to upload data specific to your character (essentially a formatted string that defines your character). The SimulationCraft add-on will create this formatted string for you, allowing you to get a snapshot of your character's race, talent spec, talents, and gear (equipped and in bag, but not in bank). Step 1: Download and Install SimulationCraft https://www.curseforge.com/wow/addons/simulationcraft Step 2: Open WoW and Log into the character you would like to Simulate! Say Hello, Bauble! Step 3: in your chat frame, type /simc Step 4: Copy the generated string to your clipboard for use in the next section! RaidBots.com Raidbots is a website that will allow you to run simulations of your character Types of Simulations In this guide, I will provide a few of the most common ways to use this tool. Quick Sim: Use this Simulation mode when you are looking to determine your current "max" DPS in your current state (under ideal circumstances) Stat Weights: Use this Simulation mode when you are looking to determine what gems and enchants you should be using (given current stats) Talent Compare: Use this Simulation mode to compare different talent builds Gear Compare: Use this Simulation mode when you are looking to compare gear (Got a new piece of gear that you're unsure of? RUN THIS SIM) Top Gear: The most complicated simulation. Use this Simulation mode when you are looking to compare configurations of your best gear, talents, and enchants/gems Quick Sim Step 1: Paste your Character String into the provided form: Step 2: Select Sim Options: This interface allows you to specify the buffs you would like to simulate with, any consumables you might have active, and the length of the fight. I recommend that you do not bother with changing the config on the top, and only work with the Reorigination Array Stacks and Raid Buffs/Consumables for this Sim. Step 3: Run your Sim! Once the system processes your request and generates your simulation, you will be presented with your data. Stat Weights For Stat weights, follow the same process as above, and you will find the stats that you should prioritize based on your current gear and talents. In this simulation I recommend removing bloodlust from your simulated raid buffs, as this may skew the haste stat weight. Talent Compare For Talent comparison, simply create multiple talent builds in the interface using "duplicate talent set" and run your simulation. Gear Compare In gear compare, the tool allows you to compare your current gear with a constructed gear set. You can add in-game items, configure their ilvl, and specify azerite traits, if applicable. Top Gear Top Gear combines aspects of all the above sections, but is limited to gear equipped and in your inventory. You are able to simulate gear and talent changes together here, to allow you a lot of flexibility for simulation. Explore this if you would like to plan out specs and gear for different situations.

    Hello, I am Tristan and I have been playing ADK on and off for about a year now. My favorite map is Ragnorak but ever since extinction came out it is my new favorite. I love and adore playing Ark because dinosaurs are amazing and ADK has been a really good server to play on because the mods add just enough to ark to make it not entirely difficult. I have been playing ark well before scorched earth came out and have been through its ups and downs. Ark being my second most time spent game on steam, I have put a lot of hours into it and plan to put a lot more hours in because of the new extinction DLC.

    ADK Beta Testing for Dino Storage

    I have been approached by the developer of Dino Storage. He is in need of a larger community such as ours to stress test some of the changes he has mad on his Beta version of his mod. Thursday evening around 6pm I will ask players who are willing to participate to log out on Ragnarok as I make a copy of the Server. I will load the copy server up (and unhive it) for our testing purposes. We will all log into this server and I will walk us through what we need to test at this time. We need AT LEAST 5 people to test the data load effectively enough to stress the mod to the max, the more players the better. I will also be force crashing this server during testing (Causing a roll back) to see how the data of the mod reacts. This whole testing process should take no longer than an hour and a half once the server is up and ready to go. PLEASE consider coming to help with this process as the developer has bent over backwards to fix problems for our community specifically and has made changes based on ADK's needs more than a few times now, it would be nice to give back and help.

    Our New dedicated Server box is ready to rock! We are excited to be able to upgrade our hardware to improve our players experience on our servers and continue to grow the section in a positive way. In this transition players should not lose anything! All of the save files have been ported over right at the last moment to make sure that progress is not lost. The only thing you guys need to do is delete the old servers from favorites and add our new IPs! The Center: (Query Port:7777) Scorched Earth: (Query Port:7775) The Island: (Query Port:7779) Ragnarok: (Query Port:7783) Aberration: (Query Port:7781) Add these new IPs to your favorites launch your game and away you go right where you left off! On top of this we will be implementing some cool new features! Right off the bat you will notice that the servers will be saving stoping updating and restarting all on their own, and in the next few days this should be transcriped right to the #ark-updates channel and will look something like this. Once everything is settled and we set an appropriate restart schedule we will look at adding a wild dino wipe to that schedule as well, but thats to come in a little while. Happy ARKing friends!

    Dino Storage Options being applied

    [DinoStorage] DownloadRelease=True //This function adds a check to see if the dinosaur would be downloadable onto the server before allowing to release. Essentially blocking non aberration dino's on aberration. ReturnTrapper=True //This function returns a soul trap to you when you release the dinosaur contained in it. StoreSaddle=True //This function allows a saddle a dino is wearing to be stored with it. It will keep all its statistics, but paint jobs to the saddle will be lost, but skins will remain. VaultTerminal=True //This function essentially makes the soul storage act as a vault. Meaning if the ground below it is broken, it will not break, it will drop. Dino's are meant to not be claimable by another player for 31 days, terminal decay timer is 31 days so that is perfect.

    Thank you ARK players!

    You guys are awesome! I just wanted to thank everyone who has purchased donor packs in the last little while! We have had plans to upgrade the ARK box for some time now, with our current player base and immense support from you guys we are almost ready to make that upgrade a reality. Thanks again! This is NOT an official information post on the upgrade but this will likely happen in early September, staff will be working very hard to make the transition to the new box as painless as possible. There is a small chance that our servers may be completely offline for a day or two, there's a very good chance our IP's will change and there's a 100% chance that the out come is going to be absolutely fantastic for the community. Make sure you guys are keeping tabs on discord and forums for dates and news and info when it becomes available! type "?rank ARK" in #ark chat to make sure you are receiving section notifications also. P.S. New box means new additional servers SQUEEEEE

    Dino Storage Update 7/25/2018

    Update: Jul 25 @ 11:55am ● INI config MaxDragWeight added which supports decimal placements. Must be greater than DinoSoulWeight, and is the maximum weight threshold to be applied when using DragWeightMultiplier. ● Improved Dino Soul description list visibility. ● Added points applied. The brackets after the stat is the points applied. First integer is wild, second is tamed. https://gyazo.com/c37ad26975618fbd23a5dcda426aa7bf ● Will now check if the dino saddle does not have structures before allowing trapping. This is to prevent accidentally trapping a mobile base and having it crumble. ● Saddles will be stored in the item and requipped on dinos when released. Quality and stats will be retained through the process. ● Added a debuff gun. When you shoot a dino, a UI appears with a list of buffs. Clicking the buff name will send a HUD notification of the file path to use for the ExcludeBuffs INI array. You can print screen the message and paste it in paint so you can use it as a reference when building the exclusion list. There will also be a remove button where you can remove the buff to help debug which buff is causing oddities when trapped and released. It will only fire if you are an Admin and can only be cheat spawned in: https://gyazo.com/c8ba3f5180491cdd58cf55c3f9ef4e83

    S+ Mod Update 7/25/2018

    Update: Jul 25 @ 6:29am - Adjusted crafting cost of the triangle Tek foundation - S+ Staircases now have the same crafting cost as vanilla to enable conversion between the two Dino Scan has been completely revamped with a new UI and new functionality: - The list of dino types is now separated into two lists with currently spawned on top of the ones without any spawns - You can now filter the dino list & clicking on a dino will show its approximate position on a map - New Config: DisableDinoScanDetails (hides the latitude & longitude) - New Config: DisableDinoScanMap (won't show the map when a dino is clicked) The scan process is as follows: 1.) The world loads and a list of all spawnable dinos is compiled once 2.) When the Dino Scan UI is opened, the server will check that list to see which ones are spawned and cache that data for 1 minute 3.) When a dino type is selected, a list of those dinos is requested from the server and is cached for 30 seconds 4.) The server then determines the location of those matching dinos and sends it to the client What this means: - The breakdown of dinos that have spawns vs those without can be a maximum of 1 minute out of date - The list of a specific dino type can be a maximum of 30 seconds out of date - The location is always accurate in real time (note: the Dino Scan UI will not update the spawn status of dinos while open but you can still click on any dino to get current data on them)

    For week 3 of me recording our Friday night sessions, I decided to go back to my original editing style, with a couple of extra goodies. I'm also incorporating a list that shows all of the people that decided to play with the =ADK= Gaming Overwatch Community. I hope all of you enjoy the Overwatch Section's Friday Night Mayhem Video, and as always, we hope to see you again! Until next time!

    This new server will take place on OLYMPUS!!! IP: We will launch the server TOMORROW (Sunday) Evening! See you then! This server will have a separate mod list and will not be hived at this time. Should this server take off in popularity we will look at turning this mod set into a hive and cut down the smaller servers on the current hive. After a couple months if the mod list takes off we will hold a competition to pick a name for the mod series! MODS: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1650976759 ARK Additions: The Collection Backpack Builder's Helmet Castles, Keeps, and Forts Medieval Architecture Dino Storage V2 Dino Tracker WBUI (Very much like our current MOTD ui but better) Immersive Taming Olympus Platforms Plus RP Visual Storage Rare Sightings Speed Saddles StackMeMore StructureSaver Structures Plus Tools Evolved ECO: Garden Decor Primordial Decor RP Decor Shoppe Decor Stable Structures and Decore ecoTrees As you can see this mod list is very much oriented towards building and collecting. But with all the normal rates of the hive. We are looking forward to testing a few mods we have never seen before like a different utility mod as well as a replacement for the speed soup mod. We are also testing a few building quality of life type mods (Builder Helmet and Structure Saver) to see if these mods are something we would like on this server or not.

    New Server? New Mods?

    Are we talking new maps or just new mods. I would recommend Jurassic Park Mod as it adds many new dinos and is well supported by the author . Also for a map I would recommend Volcano or Iso Crystal Isles. Both have the aberration content and are as large as Rag

    Scheduled ADK Transmog Runs

    Hey guildies and WoW friends! We are currently testing the waters for interest on running old world raids and content in WoW for transmog items and achievements. We have an event scheduled for Sunday at 2pm server time. If you're interested, even if you're not sure if you can make it, please reply to the event on your calendar in game! If the day or time does NOT work for you, please reply here or message me in Discord or in game to let me know, I would love to get some weekly scheduled content going that's accessible to all of our members. Where we go this first week will depend on the interest of whoever shows up to the event, however if this event is successful I will likely rotate content each week by rotating content from Classic, BC, WotLK, etc. Also please note that, although the in-game calendar would only let me invite players who are level 120, that anyone who can zone into the old raids is eligible to come along. For example if your highest character is level 80, we would be more than happy to bring you along to content that was level 80 and lower. Thanks for reading and hope you can join us on Sunday!

    Hello Everyone!

    Hello ADK, As you can see my names Kaiju, I'm 23, I live in California, and I've been gaming since I could walk and play everything from Racing to FPS and MMO's. Gaming is my down time and relaxation from RL. I am currently an EMT student and Search And Rescue student as well, so sometimes my time schedule can be a bit restrictive. I'm looking forward to playing with a new community as well. I've been through a few community's in my many years of gaming, but just didn't fit me well. I'm hoping I can find a new gaming home here and meet new people! Hope to play with all of you soon!

    Kody taking a step back from Admin

    Just wanted to let you guys know that Kody is going to be taking a step back from Admin for the time being. He is busy with school and work and keeping a positive lifestyle, because of this, hes found that he has precious little time to play. Sometimes being an admin can be pretty time demanding, especially with so few in the position at the moment. We have decided together that it's probably better for Kody to be filling an adviser position right now so that when he does have time to play he can enjoy the game while socializing with our players rather then spending hours working behind his admin menu. Basically this means that he will not be responsible for spawning of donor purchases for you guys anymore or solving in game issues but will still be around to socialize and help players with questions and passing of information. All this being said, we do need more advisers and admins within the section (even before he made the shift) so if anyone is interested in helping out in a staff capacity please message me in discord and we talk talk about it. =)

    ADK Server Wipe Schedule

    LAST CLUSTER WIPE DATE: December 19, 2018 Mod Changes: Addition of BAAutoCollectors A New all in one stack mod StackMeMore that will no longer require us to have 4 stack mods. Extinction added to the hive Player and Dino experience has been altered - It was a giant messed up monster. We are now a 3x experience cluster NEXT CLUSTER WIPE DATE: TBD No planned changes as of yet - Next wipe will hopefully not be till 2020 ____________________________________________________ The ADK Hived Servers are Scheduled to be wiped every 12 to 18 months. When a wipe takes place the Admin staff will be refining our servers for a better player experience. We will be going over player feedback and making changes where possible. (Rates, Mods, Rules) The Admin team reserves the right to wipe the servers early when major changes to the servers are required. For example a mod is broken and no longer supported that most players use and will effect current bases or player characters (Most of the server built their entire base using Structures and keeps but the mod needed to be removed.) We will only resort to this under extreme circumstances. Wipe Protocol: Donation Purchases: Players who donated up to 6 months prior to the wipe (flexible if you miss the cut off by a few weeks with a purchase) will have their purchases credited back to them. You may receive the same purchases or use your balance towards other store purchases to get you back on your feet. For example. Feisty bought 1 small dino - $10, 3 Ascendant Flak sets - $15, and 5 Dino Paint jobs - $5. She now has $30 Dollars Credit and Buys 2 Flak sets - 10$ and 2 Small Dinos - $20. This balance must be used within a month of the wipe date, with the exception of credit that was used for TEK or Element related purchases. Should you choose not to use this credit for another donor pack, the credit for those packs can be held until requirements are met once again. (Completion of boss fights for element purchases OR caves for TEK suits) Returning Players: Approx. 48 hours prior to the wipe, the dino soul recovery file is going to be wiped, at this time players can ball a single dinosaur that they want to have returned after the wipe. Normal Boss Fight Dinosaurs will NOT be permitted. (Rexes, Yuti, Daeodons, Spinos) The purpose of this is to allow players to keep a single prized dinosaur, or a dinosaur to ease them on their new beginning, but not to allow players to easily overcome the boss fights immediately after the wipe. Wiping the servers on a schedule is very healthy for continued growth within the community as well as giving the Admin team a deadline to make changes to make our servers better for our players. I know that some players do not enjoy wipes, and we will unfortunately never be in a position where the entire player base will be ready, but we will do our best to make the transition as painless as possible for those who remain loyal to the community.

    It's been pretty upsetting that wildcard hasn't put out the Halloween content with the promised dinosaur colors this year. I've looked at every possible option to put this content on the servers, with the only result being a flimsy mod with little options that will result in all your Halloween hard work being deleted as soon as the mod is removed. I feel like every person should get their candy on Halloween, so I've come up with an alternative.... Ready? ARK FEAR EVOLVED: ADK STYLE! From October 26th to Oct 31st players may Trick or Treat at an Admin's house with a dino of their choosing! Admins will paint these dinos in a random (we decide) Combination of Halloween Colors! Don't worry we will make it look good During your Trick or Treat visit, AND ONLY during your visit you can submit your picture for our Spooky Picture contest to the admin on discord! This picture can be taken anywhere on any map we host, it can contain wild or tamed dinosaurs if you choose, buildings whatever you want, but know that the picture is going to be judged on the most Spooky Halloween themed picture SO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR PICTURE READY BEFORE YOU TRICK OR TREAT!!!! (Admins will post those pictures in this thread!) The Prize for the BEST Spooky Picture is a Halloween Colored Shoulder Pet of your choosing. Current Admins and their Homes: (Let us know if youre ready to trick or treat if we arent online) Feisty - Green Obby Ragnarok Kody - Green Obby Mountain top Ragnarok Chas - Green Obby Ragnarok/Island Volcano Beach Sav - Out of Commission atm, but she will judge the contest! I know this isnt quite like the official Fear Evolved, but I couldn't let us go a whole holiday without some sort of celebration! Enjoy!

    Dino Storage Mod Update 9/3/2018

    Hey everyone, today we had a small update for the Dino Storage mod, here's the breakdown: ● Dino Souls now works with Auction House. ~ Special thanks goes to the Ghazlawl for allowing you guys to auction Dino Souls by storing custom item data in his new update. ● Dino Souls now capture the server name it was captured on. ~ Old Souls in play will not have a stored server name, and will have their mating times refreshed to allow mating. Free one-time 100% cooldown for all currently stored females when the update lands! ~ New Souls containing the stored server name will: • If stored on server matches the released on server, mating timers will continue to count down and behave normally. Only effects females that can breed. • If stored on server does not match the released on server, mating timer will behave like the Obby where the new server will set a mating cooldown time between the dino's `New Female Min Time Between Mating` and `New Female Max Time Between Mating` which is on the dino BP itself. The item will say "Trap again to get new server mating time!". Only effects females that can breed. Can be changed to not set a mating cooldown timer with INI config NewServerCanMate. ● INI config NewServerCanMate added and, if true, will make female dinos able to mate immediately on new servers. Default is false.

    Hi and G'Day

    Hi just wanting to introduce myself as I would like to join ADK. I am known on Discord as Crankygrandma and my in game name is Chachi. I am part of Flyingsolo's Wyvern's Bane tribe and will be forever in his debt for introducing me to your community. I have over 5200 hours in Ark and also have our own family server as well as countless hours in singleplayer. Being in Solo's tribe has revitalized my Ark interest. Solo and Kath have been so welcoming and helpful. Also Feisty, Markivo, Sav, to mention a few have also been very welcoming. These members made me feel right at home. As for what about me, I have just in the last 2 weeks retired from 31 years of Nursing. Am not looking back but will have to temper my donor pack purchases once the pension starts being only source of income. Being involed with computers since 1982, I build, repair, and play computers. I also love collecting movies and have a very very large movie collection. Being nearly 67 years old (birthday next month) and retired I have a lot of time on my hands. So I make the offer that if anyone needs an extra pair of hands anywhere except Aberration, I am happy to help. Want to give back as much as I get from this game. Not certain whether I will get Extinction but probably will. Also not certain how helping out different tribes would work but I'm sure someone will know. Would like to invite any and all to come and tour our Center base. Rather proud as I built in myself over 1 week but am continually adding and expanding. Of course I couldn't have done it without the help of Solo and Kath with their donation of materials, etc. Well that's it. Hope to have many many more hours added to my tally while involved with this community. Cranky Grandma

    Hi guys! Just wanted to post a note about the fix i made to dino storage the other day. It turns out that we trapped SO many dinos that the save file that is being stored on the server became too large. In fact the developer told me that this file was three times as large as any file any of his mod users had ever shared with him. This means that yes, we are confirmed collect-aholics... TALKING ABOUT RAGNAROK Essentially in order to fix the problem i had to rename the save file and have the mod start a new one. Meaning that all the souls trapped in souls PRIOR to this fix are now unrecoverable should some CRAZY bug that is incredibly unlikely happen. Well... they are recoverable, but it would require me to replace the file that lagged the server to hell and restart the server, which i would then have to replace again to remove the lag and restart again. I'm sure you can get where im going with this... I wont be going through this trouble unless under extreme conditions, which is VERY unlikely. For those of you that have a million trapped color dinos like me, those dinos are pretty much never going to be recovered if they are ever lost... but if you have your worker dinos trapped, you can simply un trap and retrap them to restore their info in the save file. PLEASE dont do this with all your colored dinos that serve no purpose as this will just bog down the file and cause it to lag again. Just do this with dinos that you would REALLLLLLY hate to lose like workers or drakes or whatever. Now that the bulk of the servers dinos are trapped i dont think the save file will bog down for a long time like it did before so we shouldnt have to go through this again for some time. I have also been brainstorming with the developer of the mod who has said he will likely implement some sort of storage file overwrite that servers can opt out of, meaning that he is going to make i t so that after a certain file size the oldest entry in the file will be over written, meaning that only the most recent (he estimates like 3000) dinos trapped will be recoverable, which doesn't seem like it will be unreasonable, if you didn't use the dino in 3000 dinos then chances are in the one in a million chances that something happens to that dino soul and its unrecoverable you wont miss it. Just to reiterate were not talking about REMOVING souls from the game that aren't touched... just the ability to recover them SHOULD something go wrong. Any questions about this please feel free to message me in discord.
