    Updated server to 244.4
    something about fixing rocket ammo



    Updated server to 244.5
    fixed an issue with armor being immune to guns



    Updated server to 244.7
    new save format should make server saves faster
    improved CPU usage

    In addition, I’ve maxed out server difficulty so you can see up to level 120 wild dinos.  If it’s too scary, let me know, I can roll it back.  I did NOT adjust tame times beyond the 10x we currently have. If you want that max level dino, it’s gonna take some time. I’ve also increased egg laying so it should happen a bit more often and bumped player xp from 2x to 3x.

    generate cool specialized screenshots with a roving camera, even
    super-rez and stereoscopic 3D / VR-ready. For Ansel, recommend 100%
    resolution scalar and no motion blur (those settings will tend to mess
    it up). WSAD to move the camera around in Ansel mode, click-drag to turn
    the camera. 

    * Fixed Sky rendering in VR mode

    this on Pillars, using “?OnlyDecayUnsnappedCoreStructures=true”.

    It’s been a while since this thread was updated, but here’s the latest!  It looks like they dropped about 1/2 of the expected additions, including the dynamic bridges. =(   I only had a chance to update Center/Scorch so Primitive still needs updated.

    Current Version: v248.0
    – You can now wield your weapons when mount-riding certain Dinos. The ARK Box Art is for reals ;)
    – New Feature: Procedurally Generated ARKs! EXPERIMENTAL INITIAL TEST! Details for Hosting Dedicated PGARK Here:
    – New Mechanic: Explorer Notes
    – New Dino: Kaprosuchus!
    – New Dino: Diplocalus!
    – New Dino: Chalicotherium!
    – Render batching optimization for ~20% perf in structure-heavy areas
    – Tree Platforms now have +70% HP and +50% resistance to explosive damage
    – Neuter/Spay option for Tamed Dinos (irreversible!)
    – Radial Wheel Menu text size now scales with number of entries (to avoid Diplodocus overload, etc)
    – Spectators can now see player-talking moving lips & hear voice chat when in range
    – Fixed player collisions onto big dino ragdolls

    Non-Drop-In Supply Crates (Cave/Underwater crates etc) no longer have
    decreasing Health over time (no longer autodestroy), but they can also
    not accept Inventory anymore and can not be used to generate Boss
    Tribute Portals.
    – System to completely add/subtract/override all Map
    NPC Spawners via INI (highly useful for PGM spawn tweaking). Fully Mod
    NPC compatible as well! Details here:
