Next Forum Update

Now that things are mostly caught up around here, I am compiling a list of things for the next forum update. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

1> Server Etiquette (Rules Section)

We don't have many rules (basically no griefing), but they used to be clearly spelled out in the Message of the Day. As that is no longer the case, I'm going to need to put a little something together here that outlines our philosophy on how we run the cluster. We are *very* community oriented in our approach, so we welcome all your input!

2> Events.

I have been working on a series of 'events' that we can use to change things up on the servers. I was envisioning a format of different weekly events (Monday to Friday) and weekend events (Saturday and Sunday).

I have a few more ideas I need to flesh out on this, but I'd love to get some suggestions for additional events I could utilize. Think things like the current 'bonus weekend' that Ark already does on vanilla servers (2 x XP/Gather/Etc), and also borrow liberally from other games - look at WoW events - I can adapt BattleGround weekends, etc.

(I have also considered building an indestructible 'arena' on one (each?) of the servers for special events...)

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Let's think of some ways to add a little more excitement and variety!

And to those that are not playing on our servers, perhaps just browsing our forums, but have some ideas to contribute, please feel free to chime in, we'd love to hear from you!

Exclamation

A quick note for all (including myself - I need to add this to an upcoming post):

DO NOT BUILD S+ STRUCTURES IN AREAS WHERE IT WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO PLACE NORMAL PIECES OR ** THE SERVER WILL AUTO-DELETE YOUR BASE!! **

To clarify, the server is set to "Do not allow building in resource rich locations". It will not allow you to build (standard pieces) in certain ares, such as the volcano etc. It WILL, however, allow you to place S+ pieces in these locations.

One of our players did this. The next time the server reset, it wiped out every structure he had there. Every single piece was just gone.

Don't get your base wiped - check before you dig!
