  1. Hi!

    Hey welcome to the forums. I play overwatch as well, maybe will see you around the community
  2. Noous

    glad you enjoyed the raid tonight! Look forward to seeing you around raids ^_^
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Hatching times dont really matter as much considering the animals still have a breeding cool down. You have about half the time to wait for things to incubate than before, but you still have to wait for your rexes to be breedable again. The Whole point of the change was to make breeding gestated animals viable, where before It was really nearly unbearable and a large amount of our players just never bothered due to the hours it took just waiting for them.
  6. 1. Lowered the Dino Storage recovery file once more to 2000. There was still a significant pause for balling and releasing dinosaurs. 2000 was the recommended number by the developer so that's where we will leave it. This will be active on All servers next restart. Just to reiterate this change does not effect balled dinos in any way it will just make dino's that have not been balled in the last 2000 dino soul entries will be unrecoverable should something catastrophic happen. Basically all this means for our players is that once every approximate 2 months any souls that have not been released and reballed in as much time may be close to being unrecoverable. PLEASE do not just untrap and re trap all your dinos, ONLY the most important say 10 or 15 every 2 months to maintain their entry in the recovery file. (Servers active like rag may be a shorter time period). 2. I have made the decision to increase the EggHatchSpeed variable on the servers. We used to have this variable at 5x and it has been upped to 15x. This will lower the amount of time it takes for eggs to hatch and Dinos to Gestate their babies. Example: Horses that used to take 2 hours 40 mins are now at 50 mins. Most other medium sized dinos will gestate between 15-30 mins and Smaller dinos around 10 mins (Otters were 30) I have spoken to quite a few of our players over the last weeks and most seem unwilling to breed animals like Daeodons for boss fights to their full potential. As well people are just downright not breeding dinos that require gestation due to the extremely long time it takes for them to be born. This should help with that! Happy breeding! 3. Finally got around to updating the Zelur mod 4. If you haven't heard yet alliances are fixed. (This is already live)
  7. Not really when you consider that at x5 a horse and anything larger than a horse gestate for 2 hours and 40 mins or more.
  8. Introduction to Blue

    Psst wrong thread
  9. Introduction to Blue

    Welcome to the forums! FINALLYYYYYYYY!!!!!
  10. 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!
  11. ARK Staff Applications Open!

    We are still looking for more Advisers to round out our team. With the upcoming expansion and then the modded server we will need more coverage!
  12. Hey there survivors! I hope everyone has been having a good summer and been able to accomplish all of your awesome build ideas and breeding dreams. As the summer comes to a close, the ARK section is ready to amp it up to make up for the gruelling back to school/work routines. We have a lot of plans for the servers in the fall starting with a pretty decent upgrade to our hardware just around the corner. With this and the loss of some of our admins to real life and other interests we are opening up applications for ARK Staff once again. We are looking for individuals who are playing the game on a consistent basis. Active in discord chats and voice channels whenever possible as well as being able to keep up with forum introductions and the like. If this sound like something you are interested please feel free to fill out an application or reach out to me in discord if you have questions.
  13. Drums of War?! (PvP Interest post)

    I'm game though PvP does cause me a lot of stress and rage, lol. I will likely pop in and out whenever my brain is ready for that kind of torture. Does kind of suck that they only release the sets in parts. In order to complete the transmog set I have to reach 1800?
  14. Hi I'm Knight

    Lol! Welcome to the forums and im glad that you are enjoying the guild. Nice to have another friend to play overwatch with as well.
  15. Hello im Blurr

    Glad to see you on the forums! What other games do you play besides wow?
  16. 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: 149.56.16.27:27015 (Query Port:7777) Scorched Earth: 149.56.16.27:27017 (Query Port:7775) The Island: 149.56.16.27:27019 (Query Port:7779) Ragnarok: 149.56.16.27:27023 (Query Port:7783) Aberration: 149.56.16.27:27021 (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!

    Appreciate you guys coming in and helping us out (I was leading the raid) To be completely honest we had a rough start to this raid, but sometimes you don't know what you're going to get with pugs. After we lost a few that were really holding us back, you guys joined and we were able to fly through the rest of the raid. There are always ups and downs. I know from years of experience raiding and raid leading how frustrating it can be to not be able to fill a raid. Should you ever need a place to fill in your week you are welcome to join us, we are often in need of tanks as well, so maybe we can see Tiserian in his natural habitat, it is awesome for people who tank to have some flexibility though! =D Hope you guys will join us for heroic tonight. https://www.worldofwarcraft.com/invite/amYaglYIzzO?region=US&faction=Horde Here is the link again for the community in case you need it.

  23. Mod updates

    Dino Storage: Update: 21 Sep @ 9:58am ● Pegomastax and Ichthyornis are no longer able to steal Dino Souls. ● Light pets will now retain it's charge when being stored. ● Added a personal owner check when trapping if OwnerRelease is enabled. ~ If using this ini and you need to swap personal ownership around than you can do so by having the owner release the dino with tribe taming set in the governance. This will remove personal ownership and allow you to trap it. Than switch tribe governance to personal taming and it will be released with you as the personal owner. ● Additional MU options for the terminal are now in sub-category [Options] ● You no longer need to select an item for the recovery button to appear. You still need to select a Soul for the destroy and transfer options to show, respectively. ● Added MU option to pull souls from the Terminal, in case you put too many in there. ● Targeting key (right click by default) of the Soul Gun will now open a UI to pull Dino Souls if a container is being targeted, in case you put too many there. ● Minor performance improvement on trapping. ● Dropped item bags from trapping now use the dino's corpse decay time. Before it was a manually set time, but now it gives a item bag decay time as if the dino was naturally killed. ● I liked the orange on the Dino Soul, so I reflected that change on all of my other items. I feel that it contrasts against the blue background really well for easy reading. Eco RP Decor: Update: 21 Sep @ 12:30pm IMPORTANT: Added: Community Box (Items for Admins or Community Centers) Guestbook (100 Inventory slots) Bulletin Board (50 Inventory slots) Outpost (Snap points for ladders and the floor can be built upon) Bad Box (Can be placed next to an enemy foundation or build. Has 2 inventory slots. Used for RP servers when you have broken into a base and need to leave a note or clue back to your character or tribe) IMPORTANT: Changes to the Cooker and Attachments: Added: Recipe Station/Med Station where the Bases are turned into foods will snap to the left of the Cooker. The old Dye Mixer (the black pot) will now become the Cooking Pot. Similar to the vanilla Cooking Pot. Here you will create your vanilla med brews, chilis, soups, etc. Finally the Dye Pot is now on the right. There you can create your Dyes for the same price and quantity as before. The Recipe Station, Cooking Pot, and Dye Mixer all snap to the Cooker. The Cooker still functions the same as before cooking meat, creating charcoal, and refrigerating. The Mixing Bowl can be placed on any surface and does not require snapping. Food created from the Base give 1/4 the amount of Food incease as eating 1 Cooked Meat Food created from the Recipes give the same amount of Food increase as eating 1 Cooked Meat Faux Medicinal Teas provide no buff and are for RP purposes only. Added: King Bed (11 color options via radial wheel, 2 laying positions available) Bunk Bed (11 color options via radial wheel, Shorter cooldown period for respawn, 2 laying positions available) Seated Animation for Female to Bathtub Seated Animation for Male to Bathtub Tall Counter/Bar (50 Inventory slots) Kitchen Jar (3 Inventory Slots, can be used to storage consumables for a short amount of time, can be named) Curtains (Hang on wall, can be painted) Pantry (120 Inventory Slots, increased spoil timer, can be painted) Mixing Bowl (Used create Bases such as Lard, Flour, and Milk, Found in the Food Tray) Recipe Station (Snaps to Cooker, combine your Bases from the Mixing Bowl to craft special recipes, Found in the Food Tray) Cooking Pot (The old Dye Mixer (the black pot) will now become the Cooking Pot.
