How Voting Works

You can vote for our servers on ark-servers.net and get cool rewards over time!
First you'll need to vote for our Ark servers. Each server can recieve one vote once a day:
HappyDiggers Ark The Island (https://ark-servers.net/server/65112/)
HappyDiggers Ark Aberration (https://ark-servers.net/server/132328/)
HappyDiggers Ark Scorched Earth (https://ark-servers.net/server/132329/)
HappyDiggers Ark Ragnarok (https://ark-servers.net/server/132330/)

In order to claim your rewards you'll have to log into a server and run the /vote command for each vote you made. Each vote you claim will reward you with 1 flaregun and 10 points which can be used in the ArkShop! Points are tied to your account which means you'll be able to access your total points on all HappyDiggers Ark servers.

Please note: If you don't have certain map DLCs you can still vote for the server and claim the votes on a different server!

How to use Protected Passives

Criteria for protection:


The dino must be set to passive
The dino must not have any non food items (kibble doesn't count as food) or unequiped saddles in the inventory
The dino must not be on follow
The dino must have full health
The dino must not be parked on a platform saddle
The dino must not be parked too close to enemy structures
The dino cannot be in passive protection when near bosses
A platform dino must not have any structures built on the platform
A protected dino will exit protection if shot by an auto turret
Titans cannot enter passive protection
Riding the dino will exit passive protection

If the criteria for protection are met a protection timer will be initiated in the form of a blue circle at the feet of the dino. After 1 hour the timer/circle will be completed and the dino will enter passive protection. Passive protected dinos can be identified by their blue icon above their head. If a dino has passive protection it cannot be injured. Non food items can't be transfered to dinos in passive protection. Exiting passive protection will allow you to put non food items on the dino again.


Donor Perks for HappyDiggers Ark

We always try to reward the awesome donors that contribute to HappyDiggers. We've done all sorts of rewards through the years on our Minecraft servers. In the future we may have a permanent donor only Ark server. Donors on HappyDiggers recieve special privledges and rewards for both our Minecraft and Ark servers!

Donation levels are determined by your total donation amount to HappyDiggers. Subscriptions are appretiated but not required to reach certain donor levels on HappyDiggers. Example: A player donates €10 in July, then donates another €20 in September. That player would be an Awesome level donor.

Our Ark server configurations were modified from default values to deliver a fun and entertaining gaming experience for those that play on it. These settings have been thoroughly play tested and have been determined to fit the kind of gaming experience a casual gamer would enjoy.

All HappyDiggers Ark servers are in the same cluster. This means you can transfer your character, items, and dinos between all HappyDiggers Ark servers. Visit an obelisk or loot crate in-game and select the "transfer ark data" button at the top of the interface to initiate a transfer.

Unfortunately the Offline Raid Protection mod seemed to cause too much lag for players connecting long distances away from the host server location. It has been removed. I'll be keeping an eye on the mod in hopes of more optimization and control, hopefully it can be re-added in the future.

That's kind of a bummer that didn't work out. We lost a bunch of our fledgling players because someone went around and not only raided them, but mostly demolished their homes apparently.
Llama logged on and was so bummed out that his home and all his chests were gone he left looking for greener less pvp-enabled pastures. :(

I'm all for some pvp but crushing people as they are just starting out while they are offline is such a morale killer.

I've never been a fan of PVP. I think it tends to bring out the worst in players and the worst players in general. It's why I don't have it enabled on our main Minecraft servers.

However, I also don't play ARK. So I can't say for sure what it would do to this game if we were to disable PVP. Perhaps it would be a good idea to get feedback from other players. Either here or on Reddit, I'm not sure if Jiro started a thread over there yet?

As far as losing players, from what I've seen only llama decided to stop playing. He had a small thatch structure that one would have in the first hour of the game so there really wasn't much progression. I also spoke to him personally and he just didn't seem interested in the server in general.

PvE servers are wildly different compared to PvP. PvE becomes stale after a while. You progress, grab dinos, grab prints, and then bam nothing to do. Official PvE servers don't even have any space on their islands left for people to build, people literally can't place foundations and build a house because the entire servers are maxed to the brim with structures and dinos. Griefing is unchecked and out of control as well via structure blocking, dino luring, resource blocking, etc.

PvP servers present risk and the possibility of losing all your dinos and your entire base. They also present risk when just being out and about in the world gathering items. Some find this exciting, others struggle.

PvPvE servers (which we're running) encourage a community of players that hold each other accountable in matters of PvP. In every PvPvE server I’ve played on, it works really well. The community of players enjoy playing the game and any conflict that happens is minor and controlled due to the PvP rules of the servers, which is where the PvP is in the PvPvE. Without the support of the Offline Raid Protection mod, making a rule of no offline raids isn’t practical because there’s no way to prove such and such took/did such and such. That doesn’t mean we can’t have the rule but it would be more of an honor system than anything at that point, which is okay.

Bottom line, a combination of PvE and PvP give a variety of playstyles the chance to thrive and enjoy Ark together and I would not suggest picking one over the other. You could say the game is Hard Core survival and players should expect to have to defend themselves against wild dinos and unknown players. There are plenty of opportunities for players to make adequate defenses against other dinos/players, to join tribes/alliances, etc.

Ark can be a very frustrating game, especially when starting it alone with very little experience and being wiped off the map. The day after I got Ark and plowed a bunch of time into it a wild carnotaur took down my thatch shack while I was hiding inside it. He then held me off so I couldnt get any of my stuff. Discouraged, I quit playing single player forever and started my LONG search for a decent server. Played some PVE along the way and it sucks the motivation out of people. With PvE there is no use for most end game items, no reason to build quality structures, and worst of all no real diplomacy. In Ark, nothing brings people together better then a common enemy and nothing brings more people then a good fight.

So the guy who was causing these issues with people ended up getting himself banned on an unrelated charge, go figure right?

We've done a bit more testing with ORP on a local server and a test online server. So far so good. We'll be doing some testing with the mod on the HappyDiggers server again and hopefully it will all work out. The new server performance update may also contribute.

Jiro_89
25th February 2016, 04:21
Update:

Offline Raid Protection has been running on the HappyDiggers server for a day through 2 Ark game updates. The server is doing fine. Whether that's because of the new Server performance update that came out or not is difficult to say, but it's working so no complaints here :cool:

Jiro_89
25th February 2016, 08:50
Rule changes:

The server has been up for two and a half weeks. (yay!) As such rules are still not set in stone and there are still some kinks that need to be worked out to enhance the gaming experience on the HappyDiggers Ark server.

Now that the ORP mod is functioning as intended, I'm removing the 3 base limit. Tribes are limited to 4 ORP pillars so there is only so much that can be protected while the tribe is offline. I feel that this is a good trade off which will allow casual gamers to protect their bases easier, while allowing for more hard core players to expand at greater risk.

I'm also adding a rule to limit the amount of rafts a tribe can build to 4. Why limit rafts you say? Some tribes tend to go crazy and make dozens of rafts. When a dozen tribes make a dozen rafts each suddenly you have way too many rafts on the server. While server performance has been excellent so far, I'd rather try to preemptively avoid issues of spammed rafts affecting it.

I'm loving the server. Thank you muchly for hosting it J.
My Husband and I have been playing together daily and it's awesome to have something and somewhere we can play as a couple.

And to clarify I wasn't suggesting disabling pvp entirely. There is something really satisfying about hunting down some rude jerk and crushing them. ( Or you know. Watching an ally with a giga utterly smunch and underhanded creep's base after they've been banned. )

I was just lamenting the inability to put offline new players off the menu.

I am super pleased the ORP is up and running though.

It would be super cool if ARK was like MC and the first time a survivor spawned on the server they got their first ORP beacon for free although I suppose obsidian is't -that- hard to come by if you know where to look... If you don't, your arse will be left to sway in the wind until you get a flier. So not too much newbie-newbie protection there.

I completely agree with Jiro and Doc about PvE servers. They do wind up cluttered and full of passive-aggressive pissyness all around. The ones that aren't cluttered have a pve-destroy option set to as little as a week. Heaven help you if you get burn out or take a vacation. You will come back to a new base built on the rubble of what you worked so hard on.

No these settings are about Perfect, truly.. It was just bad luck to get someone who was so systematically and sneakily breaking homes down and ( I belive) using a fleet of scorpions to trank people's dinos in the water so they would drownd without leaving any trace of who raided them. The ORP will put a stop to anymore of that with the expanded tribe logging. So win-win.

Ocean Breeding (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=591452643), DJH's More Storage (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=747871427&searchtext=vault), and Photon Sentry N Rifle (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=575017270) mods have been added to the Valhalla server.

Ocean breeding will allow us to breed most water dinos as an intermediate mod until the Ark devs (eventually) release water dino breeding officially.

DJH's More Storage adds specialized item containers with metal and obsidian versions that are stronger and hold more.

Photon Sentries are a new kind of turret that fires slower than normal auto turrets but deals more damage. It also includes a photon tranq rifle that has been edited to do 800 torpor per shot.

On the bright side I have a new mod to add to the Valhalla server when it's done updating.

Say hello to Scorched Earth Tabula Rasa (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=758608778&searchtext=scorched)!

This mod was developed by Pegi16, who creates many high quality mods for Ark. This mod will add in the dinos and items into a server and doesn't require you to have bought the Scorched Earth DLC. This won't replace actually playing on the Scorched Earth map, but it will allow us to bring in the Scorched Earth dinos and items into Valhalla which otherwise couldn't gain access to the content.

As for the HappyDiggers The Island server, I'll be holding off on adding the mod there as it's possible in the future we will have a Scorched Earth map to link to our Island map and I'd rather have natural progression and expansion on The Island whenever possible.

InsaneJ
4th September 2016, 16:57
The problem is the update servers. My client will download Steam updates at 100mbit/s. However the server downloads updates at super slow speeds often timing out before completing. Server and client use the same Internet connection so that's not the problem. The problem as far as we can tell is Steam update servers that serve the ARK server files. And of course it doesn't help that the sever can't seem to resume downloads so if it fails it needs to start over again.

Right now both ARK servers have downloaded about 14% of the update.

Jiro_89

I've started the 6th round of the server update on my end. It's going a heck of a lot faster this time so as long as it doesn't slow down we might have a shot at getting it updated overnight without the server crashing or the network timing out. 48% in about 5 hours.

HappyDiggers Valhalla is back up. The photon sentry mod has been removed temporarily as it's having mod mismatch issues that can't be resolved by re-download. I've brought it up with the mod author.

So what has changed? Long story short, we've put the servers on a windows virtual machine. This allows us to run them through Ark Server Manager so it should make server management simpler moving forward. We'll see how they hold up in time.

The simplest way would be to visit our Servers page (https://happydiggers.net/content.php?117&tabid=107) and scroll down to the bottom where the Ark servers are listed. They have Steam server links that, when clicked, will allow you to auto join the server of your choice. I recommend starting on Valhalla or The Island first before exploring server transfers and our Scorched Earth server.

I've have been working on the Ark servers today and I discovered a big OOPS! Apparently in version 253.0 the devs left this little tidbit:

[quote]- TamingSpeedMultiplier, HarvestAmountMultiplier, and XPMultiplier are now hard coded with an extra 2x multiplier. If you wish to have your server use the same rates as before, please reduce your server's custom values for those by 50%[/qoute]

So everybody has been rocking double of everything for the last few major updates :sheep:

Now that I've noticed this error, I have fixed our values back to 5x tame 3x gather and 2x XP.

Edit: Apparently decimal value rates, such as 1.5 gather, do not equate to the doubled value that they should. So we're going to stick with whole numbers. The new rates are 6x Tame 4x Gather and 2xXP.

Jiro_89
6th March 2017, 23:18
Apparently the Ark devs put out incorrect information in one of their official patches.

After testing I found that the taming speed has not changed, the harvesting multiplier is somewhat less than 2, and the XP multiplier is x2.

Now that I know how to get the harvest rate to double correctly, I've changed the rates back to 5x Tame, 3x Gather, and 2x Experience. All tested to be the correct settings in game.

As mentioned in the quoted post, the rates have been returned to 5x Tame, 3x Gather, and 2x Experience.

Hi i play on your Server (TheCenter Prim+), and first of all i want to say great work!:D

Only one thing to mention is, that the wild Animals dont get damaged when they running into a wooden Spike, as it should be. Maybe bugged?:confused:

Im missing third pers view and the damage indicators, but maybe its disabled for a reason, hueh? ;):confused:

I hope there will come more players soon.

Btw, please let us know before the server gets down or wiped in the future so we can save our characters. Thank you.:rolleyes:

I will recommend you and your server.:cool:

Jiro_89
7th March 2017, 22:25
Thank you :)

Wild dinos getting damaged by passive structures is actually defaulted to off. This is to prevent people from grinding high level dinos and alpha dinos with spikes for XP. Third person view was turned off from the beginning to be more inline with Official server PvP settings, and damage indicators are also defaulted to off on servers.

The only restart that server has had definitely had the 10 min, 5 min, 1 min, warning system running. I'll have a look to confirm that it's working in game like it should be.

I went through and wiped out old, unused, inactive bases/shacks/rafts all over the beaches of The Island to clear up room for new and active survivors.

Criteria for being wiped: No metal structures, base has gaping holes in it with no attempt to fix, no tamed dinos, entire buildings built without S+ (8+ months old), boxes full of pre-resource mod stacked items (8+ months old), no turrets or other defensive countermeasures.

Some tribes that are active had small shacks on the beaches, those were cleared as well to make room for new survivors as they already have main bases elsewhere. All VIP member bases remain regardless of their activity due to their community status.


Upon request, I have also increased the amount of black pearls harvest 2x to help with the end tier item bottlenecks. Player harvest rate was also increased 2x. These changes will take effect next update.

Well somebody finally made it, a way to protect passive dinos without forcing the rest of the neutral dinos or base structures to be invulnerable. It also has the ability to force dump all non-food items from the passive dinos to prevent abuse. It's a new mod, but when all the bugs get worked out you can bet it'll end up on all of our Ark servers. It should solve a lot of headaches when it comes to raiding and losing dinos.

Spent some time fixing the new max player level issue. The ascension game progression removed 15 levels off the 200 player max level, so I added 15 more custom levels on top of the original 200. Now player level 200 is attainable again under the normal conditions I had set prior to the ascension update. This does, however, increase the maximum level that can be achieved by completing the new tek cave. Easy = 205, Medium = 210, Hard = 215. The experience required scales up as well.

Early warning that the GlassMetal mod on The Island server is going to be removed. I'm planning on removing it one month from this post. This should give players plenty of time to remove/replace GlassMetal structures with S+ substitutes or however you want to work it. Removing this mod was always in the books, it just never happened due to other projects getting in the way (like Primitive Plus). Now that I'm fairly caught up on the workload I can focus on The Island again with the possibility of new mods to enhance quality of life without sacrificing server performance. Removal of GlassMetal will remove a large portion of redundant assets from the server load which can be used to bring in new mods.

Our Ark server configurations were modified from default values to deliver a fun and entertaining gaming experience for those that play on it. These settings have been thoroughly play tested and have been determined to fit the kind of gaming experience a casual gamer would enjoy.


All HappyDiggers Ark servers are in the same cluster. This means you can transfer your character, items, and dinos between all HappyDiggers Ark servers. Visit an obelisk or loot crate in-game and select the "transfer ark data" button at the top of the interface to initiate a transfer.

Hey the Ragnarok Server is offline.

Your tribe has all personal ownerships of structures. It looks like one of your members that originally placed down structures was either kicked or left the tribe and the plants followed them out of the tribe. This appears to be an internal tribe issue rather than a server issue.

That shows that your tribe doesn't own those structures anymore. A clear example of loss of ownership due to someone leaving a personal ownership tribe. When I investigated your base last week to see what might be going on I found this:

3355

That pic shows the player Aylja not being in the tribe "Vikings" while still being at your base. It says she's in the tribe "Vikings - Jarl".

Structures don't just randomly lose ownership while others don't. If your entire tribe lost ownership then that could be an indication of a bug of some sort, but select structures in a tribe that practices personal ownership shows that someone had left the tribe or the governance was changed or some other internal tribe matter happened. I can come in and reclaim the lost structures for your tribe but, like I mentioned in an earlier post, it would be a lot easier if we found a time to do it while we were both online because I don't know the full extent of your base structures like you do so I would likely miss things.

Of Course the entire tribe lost ownership of some struktures. No 1!!!!!! has left the tribe and aylia is in the tribe vikings rank jarl not tribe vikings - jarl So for me it is clearly a game bug A possible solution is like marvin said too make a gamesave server back up its is not oure fault i build moste of those plants and i clearly hafent left the tribe:confused:thx for your time

You misunderstood my reply. When I said, "If your entire tribe lost ownership then that could be an indication of a bug of some sort..." That means losing EVERYTHING. Your tribe still has plenty of structures and dinos owned by Vikings. The initial report was posted 8 days ago. That's 8 days of time that my request was made for someone in your tribe to contact me about a time we can both be on to solve the issue. Yet, none of you have taken me up on my offer.

Guess what, I fired up a previous game save from before the update on my local server to see what was going on and the results were the same. That means that something had changed in the tribe since player and tribe data is saved separately of the world save (structures in the world). Nobody is being blamed for anything. Maybe you guys made a mistake (it's common in personal ownership tribes), maybe it's a bug. It doesn't matter. I'm tired of this back and forth with nothing being accomplished, I made the request twice and you guys continued to ignore it. I'm just going to go into the server and re-claim what I see. If I miss anything, well that's too bad since I've made more than an effort to get together with you guys to figure out the problem.

I reclaimed all of the structures I could see within the base. Due to your tribe governance of personally owned equipment there was no way for me to transfer ownership. Everything had to be torn down. The reclaimed structures are in a box in the tribe area near where the greenhouse was. 2 Achatina of similar levels to the lost ones are ready to be claimed inside one of the buildings. I can't reimburse the ovis and daedons without knowing the levels as they were not reported and there was no record of them in the tribe log.

First of all, thank you very much
Sorry I was on vacation and came back yesterday
I have rebuilt the greenhouse again and the cupboard of you empty.
A few metal pipes and a faucet have passed into your possession
Could you please take care of the Vulkanhöhle (right)? Since ick can teleport me but the doors do not open
There is also an Allosaurus (Female) away the same Lv as that which still stands there.
Oh yes the daeodon was male and max level 240 at the catch.
And the other missing animals were traced and can be re-breeded.
That was then I believe everything and if I notice something still notice I am modest.
Thank you again

Allosaurus and Daedon refunded. I couldn't find any pipes that weren't Vikings so I'm assuming you took care of it. Due to ownership issues, the non owned structures were removed and put in a box near your outpost. I suggest you re-place those sooner than later since your dino is now exposed.

In a recent update the bosses were "balanced". Do not attempt any bosses right now. They can one shot kill your dinos in multitudes. I'm working with Epimetheus to play test and tweak the damage/resistance of the bosses to a reasonable amount. This will take time.

After a couple days of testing and many hundreds of dead rexes Epimetheus and I have established a good baseline for the boss fights. If the bosses weren't doable with top of the line rexes (obtainable through hunting/breeding) then they were nerfed until it was possible. I can say with certainty that every tier of Brood Mother, Ape, and Dragon can be achieved with proper rexes, saddles, and strategy. It will not be easy, and several are harder than they were before all of these "balancing" passes started coming out by the developers, but they are possible now.

Manticore was not tested. Gamma and Beta versions are doable from what I've been told. If I receive a report that Alpha Manticore is OP I'll do a balancing pass over that as well.

Changes will take effect on all HappyDiggers Ark servers after the next restart/update.

Hey! I've got a question, today is 'the big Ragnarok' update, I'm quite hyped... Do you guys know how long it will take 'till the HappyDiggers servers will be up to date? :(

EDIT:
The update went live, the server is online, but steam says that the server is not reacting and battlemetrics says online. But there is no way to join :(

Is there a way for me to fast tame my 2 wild locked up therizinos (in taming cages) before the wild dinos get wiped before the new update?

I've initiated the update cycle for all the ARK servers. They'll give a 10 minute warning(count down). Then they'll go down, download the update, process the update and then should be ready to go. Normally this takes about 20 minutes or so.

I have no idea how you can get a hold of an older client if you have already updated your client automatically.

Ragnarok patch notes say to perform a wild dino wipe, not that one is done automatically. This means I have full discretion to perform the wipe whenever it is convenient. I only scanned through the patch notes, but it appears the reason for the wipe is to allow the 25k wild dino limit to take effect on the server to prevent lag so it's not really a pressing concern. I'm guessing by now you would have started to tame your therizinos anyway. I'll be making my way to the server soon to assess if players are ready for a wild dino wipe. Note: Wild dino wipes do not remove tamed or dinos in the middle of the taming process.

Due to recent events, we have to add a new rule to the Ark servers.

Don't annoy the staff members.

While this seems like a painfully obvious rule, it has been a problem lately. You have a problem with a staff member or the servers? Post it on the forums so that we can have a civil and constructive conversation about your trouble. Such talk on the server chat will not be tolerated and can lead to warnings or bans.

New mod being added within the next 24 hours.

Protected Passives (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=954824957)

I've been eyeing this mod for months and following the development. The author is finally at a point where it's quite well polished and I'm not seeing many issues or bugs cropping up anymore. This mod should improve the atmosphere of HD Ark servers with guaranteed protection of passively set dinos with no abuse due to the mods extensive config options.

Dinos set to passive initiate a timer before they can be protected. I'm leaning towards 1 hour, we'll see what I decide when I add the mod. When the hour is up the passive dino drops all non-food items from its inventory to prevent abuse and becomes protected. I'll post more details on settings and such when the mod is added. In the mean time, clear out and sort the inventories of any dinos you own set to passive or those you plan on setting to passive.

Ark servers updated to version 265.284.

New mod added to all Ark servers: Protected Passives
(http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=954824957)
Protected Passives configuration is default except for the protection timer which I set to 1 hour.

About the mod:


When a dino is in passive mode a timer will countdown in a circle at the feet of the dino. When the circle is complete (1 hour has passed) the dino will enter passive protection and dump all non-food items from its inventory onto the ground. Protected passive dinos are safe from damage.
They will exit protection if their status changes (neutral/aggressive/etc), if you ride them and move around, if the dino is put on follow, or if the dino is shot by an auto turret. Protected dinos have a shield icon above them.
Dinos too close to enemy bases will not enter protection. Tribe owned and ally bases are acceptable.
Platform saddle dinos cannot be protected if there are any structures on the saddle.
Dinos parked on platform dinos can't be protected.
Titans cannot be protected even if no structures are built on the platform.
Dinos must have full health to enter passive protection.
Non-food items dropped from dinos will despawn after 15 minutes.

I've finally managed to edit our loot modifying config today. Took a while to get the syntax down correctly on a 510k character config file and then add in another 6k characters with updated saddles.

Saddles added:
Equus
Pachyrhino
Igaunodon
Kaprosuchus
Araneo
Chalicotherium
Baryonyx
Thylacoleo
Megatherium
Megalosaurus
Daedon
Therizinosaurus
Megalania
Yutyrannus
Basilosaurus
Tusoteuthis

Saddles were added to their respective beacon master list based on the level that it's obtainable. Since the config is no longer default from what is available online from the original author I've posted an edited list with the new saddles on the front of this thread so folks know which beacons to search for.

Made some changes to the Ark servers I have been working on for a few months now.

All S+ structure items will have a pickup timer set to 1 hour (longest time I can set it). This means you can place a structure and pick it up again as long as it hasn't been set for 1 hour. After the 1 hour mark the structure will no longer be able to be picked up and must be demolished, unless it's an item that normally allows pickup like turrets. This change is to make S+ a little less OP by requiring players to choose their structure locations much more carefully as it will cost them more and increase the value of their structures. The 1 hour timer allows for the opportunity to pick up a structure again if it is misplaced during construction.

Protected Passives will no longer initiate the passive protection timer if there are items in the inventory of the passive dino. Saddles and food (not kibble) are still allowed to exist within the inventory and will not interfere with the passive timer. This change is to prevent people from accidentally losing valuable items they leave on a passive dino when the timer expires and the non food items are dumped.

All S+ transmitters will be converted into vanilla tek transmitters. This will require an exchange with a staff member as I can't automatically make the change without affecting mods. Since only a couple of tribes have S+ transmitters it shouldn't be too hard to do. S+ transmitters will now only be given out to Epic Donors as a top tier donor perk. This will give Epic Donors access to the scan wild dinos ability and boss arena summoning ability. Players can still beat the bosses and gain access to normal tek transmitters. Only 1 S+ tek transmitter will be given to an Epic Donor. The Epic Donor will be expected to place the S+ transmitter and let the pickup timer expire to prevent people from stealing the item from the Epic Donor. Since this will be a donor perk, an admin can pick up the S+ transmitter at the request of the donor to be placed in a different location or different HappyDiggers server. If an S+ transmitter is destroyed a new one can be requested if the Epic Donor has tribe log evidence of the destruction. If anybody is found to have an S+ tek transmitter and isn't an Epic Donor they will be banned without hesitation. S+ tek transmitters are now a controlled item.

Jiro_89
18th September 2017, 23:21
It seems the pickup timer doesn't apply to S+ non-building pieces which is fine. That will just make buildings not able to be picked up and moved around. This also means Epic Donors with S+ Transmitters can move their transmitter around as needed without staff intervention.

Structures Plus updated on all Ark servers.

Note this specific change:
- DisablePickupAfterTime config option now applies to all structures in the mod(previously only applied to building structures, ie foundations, walls, etc)

This means ALL S+ structures will now be affected by the 1 hour pickup time, not just building pieces.

Jiro_89
26th September 2017, 01:46
Config changes:


Nanny no longer imprints 100% automatically. It will now only imprint to a maximum of 20%. This means you must imprint the remaining 80% if you want a full imprint. This will allow people some extra time to get all of the imprints for a dino.
Black pearl modifier I added at the request of players a while back will be set back at default now that there are many more options to obtain black pearls with.
Mutator max stacks increased to 100. Price for a mutation pulse is unchanged.
Raid timer multiplier set back to default. Boss arena times will be standard.
Custom boss config balance has been removed. Bosses will be default. Needs more testing if it's going to have custom configs again.
Scan dinos option has been disabled for S+ Tek transmitters.
The S+ Tek transmitter has been removed as an Epic Donor perk due to the extra time it's requiring staff to manage it, this has been made worse due to the changes in the most recent S+ update. I'll be looking for other alternatives to offer as perks for Donors. Any S+ Tek transmitters I converted can be converted back to their original structure if you contact me.
