Xbox one PvP Player Dedicated Server for The Island. This server is online 24/7. (with the exception of updates and server maintenances)
1st off it is worth noting the Island is the "only" map you can actually unlock all Tek Tier and enjoy all aspects of the ascension endgame and rewards.
The Host plays but doesn't engage in raiding or attacking other players unless provoked. Admin's base will be surrounded by turrets so be advised to stay clear of their base if you wish to not be shot at.
The server is slightly boosted for resources. This means resources will never run dry.
Mature players are encouraged to join the server but it is not a requirement to be an adult over 18 to join.
The Host simply likes to keep a peaceful server running with very limited conflict between players and tribes. The host does not expect everyone to get along but the host encourages players to respect each other.
In regards to raiding, take what you want if you can. Raiding other players or tribes and killing their Dinos is allowed but not recommended unprovoked unless you wish to be hated by all other players and tribes on the server. Stealing and killing other players and/or other players Dinos without warranted reason is very much frowned upon. If your intent is to just randomly kill players and steal from them completely unwarranted this is "NOT" a server for you!!!
Everyone frowns on purposely killing "passive" tames. Unless you want to be the most hated player on the server it's best to leave other peoples "passive" tames alone.
You can build almost anywhere but please do not block off Artifact caves, obelisks, and rich resource areas. Please be advised, without warning, the Admin will demolish tribe structures too close to Artifact caves and obelisks if they think they prevent other players from accessing these places safely.
This server is designed to cater to players and tribes who wish to play for long term but without having to spend hours and hours just to accomplish simple tasks or tame a Dino that would normally take ages to tame.
Difficulty level set at max
Crosshair, map location, and third person enabled
XP multiplier set at 8
Harvest Amount and harvest health slightly boosted
Player water and food drain set at .6 (made more realistic where you don't drink and eat 100 times more than you actually do in real life)
Spoiling time set at 70 (consumables at least taking a full day to spoil) ask Admin for narcs if you are a new player, till you can let your meat spoil. The best way to deal with this is to place meat in creates and unstack them one at a time. Once you acquired one carnivorous Dino it becomes pretty easy to get spoiled meat if you stack their inventory up with it. The main reason for such long spoiling time is to deter random uninvited trolls from being able to quickly tame high level Dinos within their 1st day of playing for the only purpose of reeking havoc on the server.
As well as spoiling time set high the same thing has been done with fuel consumption. It takes longer to create charcoal. The reason for this is the same reason spoiling time has been set high. This deters random uninvited Trolls from being able to create too much gunpowder on their 1st day of playing for creating explosives and ammo for the sole purpose to reek havoc on the server. (note: An Industrial forge still makes charcoal at the same rate as it should normally)
Player and Dino weight has been slightly boosted
player stamina has been slightly boosted as well as tamed Dinos
player speed has been slightly boosted
Dino Breeding has been boosted and imprinting improved
Taming speed boosted to 8
For a limited time, now able to download items, Dinos, and characters from other player dedicated ark servers. This allows players to visit other player dedicated servers and be able to bring back tames and items that are not available on the island map. ( note that when you leave to visit other servers it's required to have another player invite you back into your original tribe when you return.) Also note if you intend to frequently visit other servers it's best to create a fresh character to scout to see if you are able to transfer out again to avoid getting your character permanently marooned. Those who intend to transfer characters, items, and Dinos into the server for the purpose of trolling will instantly be banned for life.
Game settings will be adjusted over time to better balance the world. Suggestions on how to improve the server settings welcome.
The Host is "ArkServer5438" on xbox live

looking for more tribes and players to join the server with plenty of prime real estate to take over on the map. Currently there is about over a dozen or so players on the server who play frequently, this is including the Admin. The server is a very peaceful and open place to almost completely fully explore without worry of trolls. But still advised to set up base defenses to hoard off trolls who may randomly visit the server which are very rare on the server.
For a limited time the Admin will be placing random crates around the map filled full with Element and Blackpearls almost every day. Element and Blackpearls will become a form currency on the server where players and tribes can trade items and Dinos with each other. Every new player who joins the server will receive 150 stacks of Element to start them off "if" requested when the Admin is online.
Admin is "willing" to help other players unlock their Tek engrams (This does not mean admin will do all the work for a player or tribe.) Admin will help players and tribes fight bosses in the boss arena and help them run through the ascension cave "when and if the Admin is free to help". Players and tribes must 1st farm their own artifacts and spawn items for the boss arena for Admin to help them. This includes Players and tribes to use their own Dinos, items, and armor.
Starting 9/14/2017 Admin will be randomly spawning in up to 3 randomly level wild Griffins on the map after every weekly wild Dino wipe and/or server maintenance for a limited time. If this new addition to the server works out well, other Dinos that do not naturally exist on the Island map could possibly be following in future changes to the server.
