After a good 9 month run, the TRAF server will be switching gears and moving to the new DLC Map Ragnorock. It is currently loaded up on the Test server so we can apply and test some mods.

Looking for player input. What mods would you like see on our server? We are looking for mods that will address issues with the vanilla game for ex. "Fast Flyers" mod will be added to address the dreadful flyer nerf, S+ will likely remain to add functionality (as we pray that an update doesn't blow up the server).

Additionally, we are looking for an active member or 2 to serve a wide role in ARK. This role would be like a liaison or junior admin. Criteria is as follows:

Requirements:
- player must be active TRAF member
- actively play on TRAF ARK server
- Actively be on TeamSpeak

Additional preferences:
- member must be personable and be able to communicate well in game
- encourage pubbies to join us on TS
- encourage or make mild attempts to recruit pubbies to the TRAF community
- respond to questions or issues with the server/mods
- escalate issues to Dilated or TYME for resolution

In a nutshell, this position basically requires an active TRAF member to be the voice of TRAF to ensure all guests have a good experience and while we cannot please everyone we can still show that we care.

This position will start out as a Division Officer rank, which grants you access to meeting and gives you a voice in the community government, and while you wont have admin rights on the server its 1 step closer to your next rank of Div. Leader and server admin control.

Anyone interested, please contact TYME.


Here are a few mods to consider, Not going to use them all since we don't want a huge or long download time.
Green mods will almost definitely be added
Yellow mods are a strong consideration
Red, will be removed

Patch 262 was just released (3-4 days after 261, go figure) and there was a shit ton of fixes incorporated in it.

Id like to get input on MODs so we can test them and we still would like to promote someone to 'manage' the server, more or less, as stated above and basically keep tabs on the sneaky patches the Dev's put out at all hours of the day and night.

Smart Beetle is redundant, as S+ has an 'Item Collector' that will collect poop, unfertilized eggs & snail paste and will also distribute poop to nearby compost bins & dung beetles.
Also, Ark now emits a green shaft of light on your loot bag whenever you die. No suicide potion as of yet tho.

So we have narrowed it down tot he following mods:

917078422 C'est Naturel
519536568 Big Raft
573571051 Bonfire
558651608 Bridge
706933266 New Tranq Arrows
924933745 Dino Tracker
899250777 Utilities +
757669231 Echo's OCD Stacking Storage v2.1
731604991 Structures Plus
529801313 Tavan's Vaults
954824957 Protected Passives
680481868 StackMeMore (v1.11)
771785590 More Turrets & Turret Tools

With a lack of testing volunteers we took a best guess and went live so please report any bugs or issues so we can evaluate and decide how to address it.
Stats are almost Vanilla, Slightly higher xp and harvest rates, 15 x Taming and 50X baby speeds.. who said raising a baby was hard hahaaa...

We have opted not to use the classic flyers mod for several reasons.. for 1 they fixed the stamina nerf so there is a plus but also, it takes away the super fast flyers which are havoc in pvp so it will level the playing field and allow you to experience the ARK as it was meant to. We will post more details as the week rolls on..
