     I think this would be a great thing to think about when we are planning events. Perhaps just open it up to turn on once a month for players to head out and try though I think there would have to be some ground rules if players are going to be transferring on to a tiny map where pvp is enabled and just open all the time like "consensual fights only" otherwise I think you will find that you will be the only person willing to go there when you have rex's like you've got.  =P

    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

    Feisty got a reaction from Sav in 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.

    Feisty reacted to Swissroll in Simulating your character (DPS Optimization)   
    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.

    Feisty got a reaction from Sav in Some settings tweaks and a server box restart.   
    Changes being made: 
    Allowing turrets on platform saddles is now turned off - This was this way on the hive and I'm not entirely sure why I turned it on, but the drop difficulty is perfect without them.
    Base Decay:
    Somehow these settings got a little fudged when I was trying to do something new. Hopefully this will be the way we want it.  (I am taking the map save from this shut down and making a copy just incase something terrible happens.) This is how base decay SHOULD work:
    Bases will decay as they normally have on the hive, 31 days for metal, 21ish for stone etc. After this time period they become demolishable like normal. 
    After that time period passes again the bases will auto demolish, for example, a metal structure will be able to be destroyed after 31 days, 31 days after that it will demolish on its own. The point of this is too keep the servers clean, and with structures like thatch starter huts it should help a lot. 
    ON TOP OF THIS we are enabling the destruction of pillar and foundation spam as this is against the rules. Any of these structures will auto demolish very fast.P

    Feisty got a reaction from Sav in Server Titan Rules! MUST READ!!!!   
    First and Foremost, we are not making these rules to try and ruin anyone's experiences with the titans, but to make sure that everything is fair for players putting in the work, and to prevent players from interfering with groups fighting the titans.
    1. TITAN DISPLAY: We will not be interfering in the one of each titan rule at this time. Players who tame a specific titan may keep them on display at their base. As of right now these titans last a day, and with the cool down of spawns supposedly 6 hours, we don't find it feasible for players to really have an opportunity to tame the same titan in that time frame anyways. (Be careful if you try to spawn the titan it will eat your tribute when the titan is blocked.) Should WC ever allow us to unlock this limitation, display rules for the titan will be reviewed. Should the duration of the titan be changed to permanent, display rules will also have to be reviewed at that time.
    We are going to be setting some pretty strict rules regarding the combat and area of the titan fights:
    2. SPECTATOR PROXIMITY: Players who are wishing to watch the fight MUST NOT be close to the fight its self if the intention is to kill the titan. Players who end up in the arena when the titan dies will end up with engrams that they didn't earn unlocked, this is not okay. If you wish to watch you MUST remain near max render for the entirety of the fight.
    3. DO NOT TOUCH OR INTERFERE WITH A TITAN FIGHT IN PROGRESS: Anyone who has been found to have hit or interfered in any way with players attempting to tame or kill a titan will receive a 24 hour ban from the servers. The process of taming a titan is very complicated, the more damage done to the titan throughout the fight the lower the effectiveness of the tame essentially, and hitting a titan you did not spawn will not be tolerated. Players who are not DIRECTLY invited to fight the titan by the spawning tribe PRIOR to its spawning are not permitted to engage in the fight.
    4. NO FREELOADING: Players are allowed to invite players from other tribes to participate in a Titan fight with them, but FREELOADING engrams will NOT be permitted in any case, even if it is a tribe member. This means that ANYONE that receives the engrams must have been actively participating in the fight for the majority of its duration (Not just the last 10-25% of its health) This will be considered free loading, even if invited to do so.
    5. BREAK RULES = CHARACTER WIPE: Any players found to have wrongfully unlocked the engrams will be forced to start a new character at level 1. We will give you all of your items back, and put you back in your tribe, but you will lose your engrams because you DID NOT EARN THEM. Even if you have killed a titan, and wrongfully unlocked on a different one, you will be forced to reset your engrams, this is how serious we are about this rule. 
    IF YOU ARE NOT SURE WHERE THE SPAWN ARENAS ARE PLEASE ASK AN ARK ADMIN OR ADVISER AND THEY WILL SHOW YOU. THIS IS BETTER THAN RISKING YOUR CHARACTER ACCIDENTALLY GETTING THE ENGRAMS.

    Feisty got a reaction from Sav in Extinction Traps: The rule applies here.   
    Hey guys, hate to have to make this a thing, but the trap building is getting out of hand on the server. I half expected this to happen but I thought we could just remind people that this was a rule and it would just take care of itself. It's more my fault for not paying attention and building an admin trap sooner, but now we gotta do this =P
    This rule is now going to apply to extinction. Like we did with Ragnarok, players will have 2 days to take down their traps before they are demolished on site. If you need a time extension to take down your trap because of real life commitments then please shoot me a whisper. 
    WITH THAT BEING SAID. We don't yet have any admin claimed traps located on the map. Please put some input here on what exactly it is you need. Include screenshots of your trap (Maybe we'll even ask one of ya'll to build the admin trap in a central snow biome location) Either way, you can expect one to be built at some point this coming week/weekend. 
    In the mean time please take down ALL traps you have placed already, and note the rule above.  If your trap is attached to your base, or extremely close to it then it is in the clear. If you have a question about if a trap is acceptable please take screen shots from a few angles and show distance from your base and send me the screen shots via discord.
     
    Thanks for your cooperation!

    Feisty got a reaction from Sav in Tribe PRIVATE Channel Rules   
    We are SO excited about how the extinction server is going! We are also excited about the traffic in the discord, its so awesome to see everyone helping each other and communicating, this is the community dream!
    Sometimes however, people need to get away from the loud and excitable moments that happen in the open channels, and we've opened up some new channels to help with this, but they come with some rules...
    The point of these channels is to temporarily have a private channel to be able to be able to communicate clearly about what you are working on. So the rules are as follows:
    This channel is meant for smaller groups of about 2-4 people, should your activity involve more people then an OPEN chat channel should be used and anyone who joins the channel should respect that any communication in the channel should be used towards this activity (Don't be afraid to tell people that this channel is being used for X right now so if you're gonna talk about other stuff you should move to another channel.)  
    Private channels are for temporary use only while dealing with specific communication for shorter bursts of needing silence for example, chasing a dino and too many people are talking in the current channel. If you want a quieter channel just because its too loud in general then you should choose a different OPEN chat channel.  
    The first person to join this channel becomes the channel "Leader" by default only people associated with that persons tribe can enter without express permission. For example if Kody and Feisty are taming an owl they jump into a PRIVATE channel, Crankygrandma does not have permission to join that channel because she is not in the tribe. The only exception to this rule is staff who are on staff business or verifying channel usage, but they will do their best not to disrupt your activities.  
    As soon as you are done the activity that required you to not be disturbed, (Your cave is complete, or your dino has been tamed) you must leave the channel in a timely manner, this doesn't mean you have to join a channel with 15 people, but you should vacate to another Open channel to open communication with other tribes once more as well as opening the channel's availability for others.  
    THESE CHANNELS WILL NOT BE USED TO EXCLUDE PEOPLE FROM CONVERSATION OR AS GENERAL TRIBE ONLY COMMUNICATIONS - THIS IS NOT GOOD COMMUNITY PRACTICE AND SHOULD THESE CHANNELS BE ABUSED IN SUCH A WAY THEY WILL BE REMOVED.

    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!

    Feisty got a reaction from Chasaroonie in 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. =)
