I think we need to look at how the Green Jerboa works.

The Jerboa's are all part of EC. They have special loot for each of the colors. What exactly are you wanting to change? They are designed to have any creature near it attack you if you attack it.

Thanks to those who came to the Ark community meeting. We had some really good discussion and stayed on track, taking little time to discuss the needs of the EC server. Please see the link below in the EC Server Updates topic for all the details about the changes discussed in the meeting.

Hey DT/All,

I would like to propose increasing the decay timer on dinos. I've come across multiple times the past few days fighting alpha tribesman and others that spawn adds with a high health pool, and by the time I kill the adds to then make sure we didn't need to loot a bag/body there was 10 seconds or less left on the timer. This could cause problems for late game stuff, as scions/bosses all drop things that are important to loot for progression/ascension.

This will only increase in difficult as all of the bosses, deities, and supreme creatures spawn adds (these will despawn after a set time, but still makes it very tight to make sure you loot everything and doesn't account for if other dinos chain on to you as you are trying to clear the adds). There aren't many so if those don't decay immediately, it isn't a huge deal. 10-15 min I think would be fine as I am seeing 2-5 minutes on the ones I'm seeing right now. The world "normal bosses" (i.e. Broodmother, Dragon, Megapithecus, Manticore) are all harvestable, so you won't get stuck on those.

This is just something that we have come across that I think would be good to address.

Kind Regards,

Sab

I belive the settings for that would be Global Corpse Decompostion Timer and Global Item Decompostion Timer. I have turned both up, though of course you won't see it till a restart.

I have run into this with smaller/weaker dinos as well (because i had a weaker dino in early game). I know I have missed out on some loot because of it. I appreciate the change, Grizz, thank you!
