At Oraibie’s suggestion, I’ve added 2 new mods to the server RP decor and Scorched Earth RP decor. They are supposedly fully stackable mods that shouldn’t interfere with anything that add some additional decor items to both maps.
Please let me know if you run into any problems.September 20, 2016 at 5:04 pm #4531
*claps hands excitedly* ooh thank you. I can’t wait to use it. :)September 22, 2016 at 12:56 am #4532
I don’t know if it is because of the mods or the fact I moved over to Center but I’ve been getting nothing but connection timeout lost connection to host messages tonight. Got them for a good bit last night too.September 22, 2016 at 10:35 am #4533
I got that 4 or 5 times while trying to log into the server the other night because of the mod downloads.September 22, 2016 at 2:44 pm #4534
There was a new update to the server so maybe the mods need updating as well. We have 3 other mods besides this one that could have been the ones hanging us up.September 22, 2016 at 10:45 pm #4535
Updates are most likely the culprit, I know that has caused me to not be able to log in before.September 23, 2016 at 5:58 pm #4536
Egan, Baline, LethalStrike, Dharkamen, Falconwing and myself all have the ability to update the server if there are any problems. I can create a sub-account for anyone else that is interested in doing this, just let me know. You don’t need to wait for me to do updates. Just ask one of the other folks if they are around. It’s as simple as logging into the server control panel, choosing Update/Validate, Save and Restart and wait until the server says Ready.
I check the server every morning around 9am EST and run updates as needed(as long as no one is on the server), but I’m not playing ARK that much, so might miss updates that happen later in the day. When the server is updated, the mods get updated with it, but there is no method of notification of a mod being updated (and therefore the server needing to be updated too) that I know of. They post server updates on the ARK forums, but not mods. Server is updated to 247.8 as of this morning.
The current server version always shows in the banners on the home page here.September 24, 2016 at 12:30 am #4537
I wasn’t trying to cast any blame because I know we all have lives and different times in game. I just didn’t wan’t Oraibie to think I was blaming the mods for the issue as I know she seemed very excited to have them there. I apologize if it came off that way.September 24, 2016 at 1:14 pm #4538
And if it would make life easier and less stressful I’d be happy to help with server management if its as easy as what you posted. I’ve never done it before but it looks like I could handle it to help out.September 24, 2016 at 3:22 pm #4539
Oh, I didn’t mean to come off like I was feeling to blame or anything! I just want everyone to know that if there are issues there are a lot of other folks that can update or restart the server if there are problems if I’m not around. No one should feel like they need to wait for me. That’s why we have other admins, so you don’t need to wait.
Like I said, I check once a day, but Wildcard does updates at random times and it might affect you in the evening. If you want a login, Tox, just pm me nd let me know which email to use and I’ll set you up.
