Hey everyone,

 

First off this is an update as I have been chatting with the Ark server host that we use about how we could integrate our current server setup into forming the cluster servers that the Scorched Earth DLC update allows and what we would have to do, what files we could migrate, etc.

 

SO in order to make this happen the basic steps would be to terminate both servers(I will have backups on top of backups ahead of time). The hosts would then start two brand new servers and migrate our Scorched Earth files so nothing would be lost on that end. So the only thing that would change on that server would most likely be the IP address. The other server would be a fresh wipe from the heavily modded version we have now to match the mods from Scorched Earth(refrigerated troughs, spyglass) and matching config changes(taming rates, gathering rates, etc).

 

The only variable that is left is something that I want all of you to decide and that is which map would you most like to have as a cluster server? The options are The Island, The Center, or Valhalla.

 

Although I do believe we could set up any modded map as a cluster map, with the functionality being brand new to me I would rather use a map that is fully integrated and proven to work within our community and also quite importantly with our server hosting/admin tools/controls. We could always change the map later if something comes along that we are interested in.

 

If you have any questions feel free to post below and I will answer them or get them answered by the server hosting folks. As soon as we feel like we got it all figured out I will close this poll and get to work on the cluster integration stuff! 

 

Thanks to everyone for continuing to support our servers and our community.  It really makes all the behind-the-scenes work quite fulfilling and I continue to be amazed by our Ark faithful everyday ;)

My vote atm is landed on center. But it is more a 50/50 vote center/iland for me atm. I have not played iland that much so ofc its new and exiting for me. But in the end im easy.

I think im sure where i would like to live as well on both maps. :)

I voted for the island simply because so much has changed on it since we last played on it i think it would be cool to get going on that one again :D

I really wouldn't mind the Island map either, its been months since I've tried it. I voted for the center because I know it but the island would be fun with wyverns! Switching my vote lol
