Server restarts every 6 hours at 9am/pm UTC & 3am/pm UTC
Hi there! My name is Tamaster and welcome to ARK RP. If you have found your way here you likely have a strong interest in both ARK: Survival Evolved, and roleplay. Well let me tell you, you have come to the right place. I have created this community as a place for players to have fun in this amazing game, roleplay as whatever character they like, and for all to have fun. If you think you would like to be a part of that then please, make an account and apply for the whitelist! We are always looking for more great players to join us and take part in the fun.
Please note that we are NOT the developers or makers of the game here, we are just fans who want to create the best roleplay community for ARK possible.
Before you go any further however I would suggest checking out the following links for very important information:
First of all make sure to introduce yourself to everyone here.
Make sure to read the rules before applying for the whitelist.
Once you think you are ready you can apply to play via the whitelist link in the top menu
Important links and information to play can be found here.
First off I want to apologize to everyone whom has been waiting to get whitelisted. With the issues we have had regarding the Mod Update issue the last few days, the admin team's focus was shifted from Whitelists, to figuring out why we could not all access our systems. As explain by Poseidon (See Spoiler)
I am coming to you to let you all know that we are very much aware of the mod mismatch error.
We are currently having an issue ongoing with our ability to upload mods to the server, in an effort to keep the server up as long as possible and accessible for as many as possible we are working tirelessly through all avenues to upload without keeping those who are getting the error waiting too long. We are hopeful to come up with a work around to get everyone back on the server as soon as possible.
At the moment we are also waiting to hear back from the server host to hear from their perspective on the situation.
At this time I unfortunately need to ask everyone to please just give us some time to work through this issue and in time get the server working properly once again!
Thank you very much on behalf of the entire staff team for your ongoing patience!
Sorry for the recent site downtime but we have been doign some small upgrades to the site.
Some of these are simply in the backend but for you guys the following now exist:
Multi-poll and inline poll options - You can now make polls in the thread itself instead of above it and in addition you can have multiple of these polls.
Mention system - You can now @someone in a post and it will alert them to that post. The @ also autocompletes if you are unsure how to spell a users name.
Live threads for important info - We are currently testing live thread functionality for certain staff positions. If it works well and doesn't kill our bandwidth we may apply it to certain parts of the forum or more.
Updated alerts system - The alerts system was also updated to the newest version for stability and security reasons. This also brings soem improvements to the modals (the popups) for the site and fixes the issue of the alerts being cut off from the screen!
If you find any issues with any of these new changes please inform a staff member so we can fix it ASAP!
This seems to be fixed so will be removing this as an announcement. Please report to us ASAP if anything goes wrong again though!
The server issues have hopefully been fixed, and we have just rolled back to 11.25 server time to make sure as many players as possible aren't affected by the glitches. This does cause issues with player respawn timers, so it's normal to expect high respawn timers for the next few hours.
Please let us know if you experience any more glitches or bugs.
Thank you, The ArkRP staff team
I'm sure most of you are already aware of the server issues that amongst other things cause players to fall through the world and die.
We are currently looking into the issue, and will work on solving it as soon as possible.
We will be rolling back the server once we have fixed this issue but for now, we would ask you to keep playing and update the staff team with any possible changes.
This post has been a while coming and something I had hoped not to post but basically people need to PLEASE start using their common sense and follow building rules better. The server has been up for two weeks and already we are seeing insane amounts of dinos, rafts, bases and more.
This may seem quite vague so in preparation for this thread the staff team have worked to provide some examples for you all, and yes, we will be calling people out here.
The first most obvious one is rafts. Right now there are more than 150 rafts on the server (yes we can track this now). I think this is obviously WAY too many and after moving to some of them it was clear that A) a lot are just abandoned & B) some tribes have SO many. Examples being Initium Novum with over 20 rafts and Redwing Banshees with over 8. We will be discussing adding a raft limit rule but in the meantime please for the love of god downsize your raft fleets and remove ones you don't need, stop leaving rafts in the ocean.
The second is base sizes for small tribes/solo players. There are MANY bases owned by 1 or 2 or 3 players which are HUGE. This is not needed and should be downsized ASAP please. You do not need so much space and not only do you contribute to server lag but also block other players from building. Examples here include Alantis resort (http://i.imgur.com/7frQ71K.jpg), tribe fo the loyal wolf (http://i.imgur.com/Domv8Ry.jpg), Solo player name not known (http://i.imgur.com/mTSwLQu.jpg) and more.
The third issues is blocking resources. Thankfully this isn't as prevalent but I wanted to mention it to make sure anyone doing so knows it is not ok. If your base is blocking a lot of resources please move. The most obvious example here being Banshou - base seen here (http://i.imgur.com/S1XTlZo.jpg) and how it was before here (http://i.imgur.com/2VwFFfA.jpg).
The fourth issue is land claiming. The rules CLEARLY state that land claims should be structures and buildings only yet we have seen SO MANY land claims with foundations used to block others building. DO NOT DO THIS. It takes 5 minutes to throw up a simple thatch hut and if you can't do that then don't build there. Offenders here include Wilson farm (http://i.imgur.com/ocU9aqY.jpg), Beacon of hope, and more that we didn't get pictures of. These foundations look ugly, cause performance issues and are NOT ALLOWED. Sort it please.
We will soon be going through the entire map and tribe list of the server checking peoples dinos, bases and rafts so please sort out any issues you have before next week. We will not be tolerating this anymore.
Thank you for reading and apologies for the harsh tone, but I would of hoped people would of learned by now so we are forced to step in to keep the server running well and an enjoyable environment for people to play.
