Hey ok so most of you may have noticed that me, Animbus and also Habs and Bones have been playing Ark but not on GSN for a while. Reson for that is that we have been playing around with Ark Comes Alive to se what the deal is with that mod and to se if maby it would be fun and we could put it up for atleast a descussion here for the GSN servers. 

I also like to add that ALL of uss that have been playing on other servers for this mod will always chose GSN before any other server!

 

Ok so ACA is like Annunaki more or less but it dose not lagg as much (depends on settings) AND it works with scortched earth. Animals that is provided is a long range of diffrent types. You will have the base animals and those are passive tame so you can walk up to the regular trike and just feed it berries just need to be the right level to do so. Even the Pteradon is passive tame. The parasur is how ever agressive and will kill you if you wont watch out.
The basics for the dinos are otherwise Harvester, Poison, Speed and Power. Thees are kind of basic as you se the harvester gets more of what ever it will harvest for example the Anky will get more metal on eatch hit from its basic dmg then a normal one at same level. But here is what harvest rates comes in as well. IF the harvest is to high one hit from an Anky can lagg out the entire server. And i would think that if more then one person is harvesting with a harvest bronto they could possibly crash the server. (thees dinos are stronger then regualar once as well)

After that you have your dodorex, wyverns, dragons, broodmothers and so on. You also have Prime, Alphas, Chiefs and bunch more. 
Now you can tame all the diffrent kinds of animals and get more and more powerful. But they have also this kind of tire system where you gather enough crystals from the power, speed and so on and then summon another animal that you kill to get another pice of the puzzle and you keep doing this and in the end you can summon some really bad ass animals that will cruch you like a bugg if you are not cearful and your using a powerful dino. 
The Alphas as the system is at this moment that im typing is you tame one alpha, you then kill other specific alphas to gain DNA for that animal and when you have all that your alpha can evolve into a Prime. The Prime is more badass then the Aplha so its worth it for sure.

This is a verry fun mod and i have to say we have enjoyed it alot. The thing with thees kind of mods that you all have to take into acount is there may be alot of updates. This mods is still a work in progress and as i se it if i tame an animal one day and the next it is gone then i would think the people that is making the mod has a good reson for it to make the mod better and therefor im not gone cry about it even though sometimes it can suck alot if you have worked hard to get that dino.

Now here to the suggested rates and mods to make this run a tad smother for all.

New once:
Ark Comes Alive ofc
http://steamcommunit...s/?id=764365165

Resource Stacks (seams to work a bit better then stackplus we have now)
http://steamcommunit...s/?id=630601751

Super Spyglass (when the animals have over 1 million torpor you want to be able to keep a track on it for sure)
http://steamcommunit...s/?id=793605978

Sevens Mod Kit (when the animals have a shit ton of torpor a mod that gives a bit more can be verry helpful on the bigger stuff)
http://steamcommunit...s/?id=656748741

Bore Water Kit (no more looooong pipes going down to a river bank just get the water anywhere you are)
http://steamcommunit...s/?id=730794403

Mods to keep that need no links:
Feeding Trough
Structures +
Fogmod
Bigwall
Vitaberry
*Cute Hair
*Reusable Plus

*No need really could be removed if enough people want to.

Now to the Stats:
Players level : 150-200
Dinos level : 850-900 
Harvest rates : 5
XP : 5
Taming : 15-20 (10 dose work but that is at the verry minimum i would recomend)

Now xp could be boosted if wanted to, the player level is needed so you can gain more HP to be able to survive, Dinos need to have that high level becaouse the bosses that are summoned Like the Chief will spawn in at level 1000 no matter what how high our dinos are. Taming rates need to be boosted a bit to be able to tame some stuff before they wake up. There is a posion in ACA that drops all the dinos food and it will eat up fast but like a harvest dino may also wake up faster then a regular dino so you want it to tame quick.
 
Im not making this into a vote for mods. Not at this time. I just want to lift this up let you guys talk it threw and im sure as hell hoping that this is something that could in the future be on our GSN server for sure. Reson is we have all done all, seen all. We are all good ARK players and we evolve fast and rule the maps we get on fast. This adds a new challange to the table. And like always if you want to do your own thing it is still possible, may be harder but the people from GSN will always be there and help our fellow players like we always have right?
So think it over, look into the mod. Dont just dismiss it without thinking it over please.
In the end majority rules and i know that, we all know that.

One last thing. Mod like this would mean we will have to start over, do a full wipe. Now im not to consern about this matter. We have all done it in the past a few times so nothing new there really.

Thats it for me at this time. Any questions post them and me, Animbus, Habs or Bones will asnwer them as best we can. We have not fully experianced this mod yet. So we may not have all the answers at this time but we are working on it to gain more and more answers for you. 

 

Love Alice

Considering that I already literally turn on ark and let it load while i go make dinner I say no to any more mods.

 

Lately sometimes I just dont feel like turning on ark and checking in just because of the loading time I have now, adding another mod I have to say I would probably stop playing all together. Sometimes I want to quickly log in and check in on my dinos/feed them but if it takes 15 minutes just to get into the game it's just not worth it for me.

 

Nothing personal, just the way things are for me :D

For me personally, its sounds intriguing but intimidating at the same time. I haven't played in a long time and just recently got back into things so I'm content with all the stuff that is still new to me. Very nice post though :D

I see how everyone is say no thank you and all but after a while the Island and Scorched will just end up like the center map where everyone is so use to everything and get going so fast and then you have like two of every Dino  and there is nothing to do but build. Now i remember when there were many days it was just me and Animbus on the server and we would go around and just kill shit with our Gigas and it would be fun for a little while then it would get boring and i stopped and went to play Annunaki Genesis and it was Awesome! then Scorched Came out and school started and work so i couldn't play. But i have seen many many of servers get to where they are "content" and then get bored within the month and want to add mods or remove mods or do a restart and don't get me wrong for a second i love GSN SOO much there is not a Community out there like GSN in my opinion but i mean i feel like i can speak for everyone when i say everyone gets bored with regular old ark at some point and Ark comes to life or Annunaki you wont get bored very easy there are so many animals where you couldn't build a base big enough for them all so i mean hey everyone might still say no thanks or have fun else where but have you tried it? 

 

 

Love,

Bones

I understand how everyone feels about this but  i've honestly loaded into ACA Servers faster than i've been able to get into our server. Ik a lot of you are gonna hate it and I totally understand that it takes away from what ark really is. I really enjoy the change of pace it brings but I enjoy playing with everyone more than anything , i've just been kinda busy lately. I'll let you all have your opinions but heres mine. I think ACA would be fun for all of us granted everyone can log on. ACA is a lot harder than regular ark but I suppose I like the feeling of knowing you aren't always gonna be super safe in a game. A full server wipe would really suck cause I know how hard everyone has worked on their bases. With all this being said I hope everyone can end up enjoying ark how they want to.

I'm willing to give it a try. Ark has gotten too easy for me and I would love a new challenge. I really just enjoy playing with the people I've met in game and will play wherever they play. I think it would be great if we did start a ACA server if it was a three map cluster.

The only reason i would love to have it is ark just gets to slow and boring with out somthing that can mess up your whole day, everything just becomes useless and boring when you have nothing new to do, I'd rather have an adventure to take on then sit at my base with everything made and nothing else to do... just my 2 cents

Ok ive been thinking of what to say/add and to start off with i did not make this post for votes really but yes you are free to state your opinion ofc i just wished you would say more why you say no so we know why and not just "No thank You" to open the descussion on it rather then just do a plain vote at this time. 
 

On the modded list i have written down my plan in this is to remove glassmetal, medival, wonderland and also on the maby list cute hair (people have alot of fun with this one), reusable plus (it can still be useful) just to down size on the big mods. The mods i have listed that is new apart from ACA are small mods with a few items. And the servers i have been on with ACA and some other mods have shorter loading time then GSN servers atm. 

And also i did not aim for this to kick in right now. I know we have a few new/old players that just started and are trying to get back into the loop of Ark and for you there is alot of new stuff, new dinos and new fun mods to keep you busy for a while longer for sure.

On the server it will not get added a 3rd server. If this would kick in it would be on the current cluster server that GSN offers.

I will always have a base and a char on the GSN server. i will always prefer GSN like i said. But i will most likely also keep a char on a server that offers ACA or Annunaki to get that extra exitment that thees mods offers unless the day comes and GSN would offer it.

i'll say this it kind of sound nice but you pointed out a BIG problem is if i tame a high lvl dino one day the next it could be gone im sorry that would really piss me off and i would never play on the server again because of a fuck up mod now if the mod was not messed up then maybe it be different be like you said to alot of us new people are getting use to ARK again and all the new stuff so maybe later down the road things can be changed.

I se your point there for sure Blade i really do. i would feel it would suck as well for sure. But most of uss has lost dinos in Ark just because ARK happned and ate the dinos. Xee had at one point a crop plot of death. Anything that stood on that plot just died. So stuff like that can still happen mods or no mods. Last time i lost something i lost 2 scorpions on scortched.. They where there one min then i turn around and they was just gone (this was on scortched earth early days GSN server). So yes a modded dino beeing lost would if the creators of the mod change them in any way be more controlled by just not getting the mod. But then you would atleast have a reson for it beeing gone rather then Ark beeing its own self and eat your dinos. BUT to point out yet again I DO understand the consern in that way i really do.

I play with the people and enjoy their company.  That being said I would enjoy something new to try out with Ark.  I know this isn't a vote or anything at the moment but I would be for a change.  This is to easy and I would like a challenge.  Thanks for everyone hard work on putting this and any other server together to play on I enjoy both the game and the company.

For me it's a no go mostly because of that 4 letter word "WIPE".

I don't want to throw away what I've built, I'm just getting completed.

I work full time and don't get to play as much as I'd like, I take a long time to progress.

 

I can't keep up with some of you guy's. Is it fair to wipe my progress just because I take a more laid back approach to my play?

I hurry and rush all day when I'm at work, I really don't want to have to do that when I get home and log into Ark.

 

Secondly this mod may be more trouble than it's worth, maybe it gives Sam fit's during updates, what then? Another wipe?

What if the mod dev's just decide to abandon it? Wipe?

 

I understand wanting more from the game, I really do, but some seem content with playing pretty much as is.

We've built a good server and I for one would like to enjoy it for a while.

 

Love Finger  (that just don't sound right)  :D

I understand that people don't want to loose their things they've been working hard for, but the reason why we are giving this option is because we know that soon people wont have things to do and the ark will be empty. I now that people don't want to start al over but to be honest I feel like the server will be empty soon, I think that since we brought the wyverns to the island that took away a lot of the struggle that everyone gets at the beginning.

 

If this is a  problem with the mod and people don't want it its fine, but to I just want people to think about how now a day people don't get on that often because they have made it to where they wanted and then they have nothing to do.  With this mods we will have different things to do and it will take a while before people get bored of  Ark.

Trimbel and I jumped on an Ark Comes Alive server this weekend that has some pretty fast modifiers because we wanted to get to max level and test every aspect of it that we could. I have to say that I love this mod, there is sooo much to do and sooo many different dinos. I enjoy the people that I play with from GSN so I will be coming back and playing there but I did really enjoy this mod.
