Just wanted to make up a post for the launch of the new Scorched Earth Expansion for Ark and see what everyone's thoughts were on the new content pack!
This isn't going to be a flame war of people complaining about the price tag yada yada yada, I am honestly just wanted to know how it runs and plays.
On another note, from talking with a lot of you in the discord the last few days, there has been a bit of talk of wanting to put our GSN mark on a scorched earth server of our own. Given that it is a paid DLC and not everyone will/can buy it right away, I don't think it would be a good idea to demo our current server in order to run the expansion(plus i still play the base game 20hrs a week or so).
Some of the folks I have spoken with showed interest in the possibility of maybe pitching in a few dollars a piece to throw up a server for a month or more to judge interest. I looked into this last night and if paid for monthly, a 20 slot server identical to the one we currently have would be $30 + tax. If paid for by quarter(3 months) the monthly cost is discounted to $22. So basically I am asking for anyone that would possibly be willing to throw a couple bucks into starting a server to test the new expansion on and if so which option you would rather look into(1 month/3 months).
If the new server was to happen, it can be modded just like the base game, so would also like to hear which mods you would like to see to the config and the 3rd party mods. (Keep in mind that the resource sets are different so some mods might come to be useless if the resources to make the mats aren't around as much as the current map)
Alright, that's enough bs-ing. Post away!!! Thanks for the input!
