Server Update

Current Server Version: v279.291

- Fixed a server crash related to uploading and downloading


Mod Update

Simple Spawners
Update: 2 Jun @ 5:12pm
- NEW: Simple Spawners Gun, makes it easier to manage the spawners.
- NEW: No Build Zone: Place this and no one can build in the area around this.
- Now can set spawners to have a certain chance to do a spawn instead of ALWAYS spawning dinos every respawn.
- Now can set a description on spawners.
- Now can set spawns as Untameable.
- Now can set dino spawn levels incremented the same as the vanilla spawns of the server. (relies on the difficulty setting of the server, and won't always go by the increments 100% of the time.)
- Hopefully fixed the Custom Simple Spawner's foregetfulness.
- Dinos that are unconcious or taming should not get despawned or teleported anymore.
- Fixed a few bugs.

Server Interruption

We are aware of the server interruption and are working to fix the problem as soon as possible.

It seems there was an auto-update for the Simple Spawners mod. Around the same time the server went empty and triggered the restart, the server also did an auto-backup. Now the server just continually is restarting when turned on.

We are doing everything we can to get this fixed and the server back up as soon as possible. There is a possibility that we may need to go to an older backup to fix this issue but know that we're doing our best to resolve it with as little loss as possible.

EDIT: The server is now back online. I suspect there was something wrong with the server box and not our particular setup. The most recent backup was used so there should be virtually no loss of play.

Server Settings Update:

After a successful Ark community meeting, there were a few changes that were discussed with the majority of our active players. Below is a list of the changes that will take effect Monday, June 4th.
  • The Dodorexy saddle engram can now be learned
  • The Death Recovery Tombstone can now be used indefinitely instead of once per stone
  • Increased corpse and dropped box lifespan
  • Fix water spawns. This is a delicate process and will take multiple revisions to get right. Please continue to give us feedback on the water spawns.
    • Further decreased the spawn weight of Leeds
    • Increased Tuso spawn weight
  • Decreased dino XP levels by 30%
  • Increased egg hatch and gestation multiplier from X3 to X5
