Ark: Roleplay Evolved - Volume I - Order & Anarchy
Server restarts every 8 hours at 2am UTC, 10am UTC & 6pm UTC
Welcome to the new and improved Ark: Roleplay Evolved! Ark: Roleplay Evolved is the premier roleplay community for Ark: Survival Evolved. Having existed since launch we have a vast history of exciting stories, conflicts and events. Now, Volume I - Order & Anarchy - has begun and with it a slew of changes as well as a relaunch of the entire server. We have new lore, new mods, new rules, new servers and oh so much more. We hope you all enjoy this new ArkRP and cannot wait to see the stories and tales you weave within it. Want to join in? Read on!
This is just a quick thread to explain in detail the current new loot tables for beacons and how we will be dealing with items which are of a too high quality from before.
First of all starting from right now the loot tables for beacons have been updated to an entirely new rewritten table. This table gives most weapons and armour a max of journeyman quality and that journeyman quality is rare. It also expands the different options of what you can get in a loot table slightly so you may see some new stuff
Secondly we will be requiring EVERYONE to remove and get rid of any piece of gear that is higher than the qualities discussed below. This applies to gear you currently own as well as any gear you find moving forward for the rest of this season. You have two options when it comes to removing gear:
- Drop it on the floor and watch until it decays to nothing.
- If it is highly valuable bring it to the market event on Saturday and trade it for SE gear/creatures.
You will have until Monday 24th October to remove any gear which is above the max quality specified. IF you are found to be purposefully hiding gear above that afterwards you will be HARSHLY punished.
Thirdly, below you will find the max stats for gear we will be enforcing:
Weapons (sword, pike, guns etc)
Damage Maximum - 180%
Lately I have been watching the forums (and some ingame stuff) quite a lot and despite our efforts there seems to be somewhat of a downward spiral in terms of community interaction, happiness, having fun and staff-community relations. I cannot point out a simple fix so in an effort to try and figure out what can be done, and help everyone out we will be holding a community meeting in Teamspeak on Saturday October 15th @ 9PM UTC.
This will involve staff members and yourselves simply sitting, chatting and discussing the problems people have and how we can fix them together as a community. We want as many members of ARKRP to be able to make it to this as possible so please be there if you can.
I really hope this helps everyone come closer together and we as staff get some amazing insight and suggestions from you all. I want this place to be fun for everyone who plays and a server where people are eager to play and enjoy themselves. That is and always will be the primary goal.
It comes with great joy that I let everyone know we are moving our ticket system to a new platform. This new platform will allow us more functionality and give us better ability to answer your tickets faster and easier.
While we transition there is going to be a bit of a lag in tickets however once we get the system completely moved over we will no longer be answering tickets via the old system.
Here is a breakdown on how our team is going to migrate over to the new support platform.
1. We are going to swap the ticket system link over to the new system, and have an auto reply feature to have all new tickets going to the old system bounced back with a link to our new system.
2. After swapping the link over to the new system, we will clear out all the tickets or ask the ticket owners to migrate the information and submit a new ticket (depending on length of time to solve it)
3. Once we have moved all tickets over, we will start building the knowledge base so players can see all of the information relevant to possible issues.
I hope this helps clear the air on what we are doing to try and serve you all better!
Please let me know if there is any questions I can help answer moving forward!
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!
