Since you guys are planning on doing an Ark Stream to replace the 7 Days I want to suggest a few server configuration changes to help take a bit of the edge off the grind the game can have without making it to easy. Odds are you already have settings all picked out and this is pointless. But I just want to maybe help.
外围体育投注I also suggest using when taming dinos as it allows you to select the creature, their level and input any custom tame settings and it will tell you how many of what items are needed to tame it and how long it will take.
Difficulty Level- Between 0.3 and 0.5.
This will limit the max level of wild creature spawns to level 100 and level 150 respectively. If you still think that is to much then you can go even further down to 0.25 as that will set the max level to around level 75 max for wild creatures.
EXP Multiplier- Between 2.0 and 3.0
外围体育投注Pretty self explanatory. I've found with settings like this the early game you level up quickly but it slows down enough at higher levels to not trivialize leveling up. It also allows you access to the starting Engrams quicker allowing an easier start. The exact rate and what feels good to you guys at AH will vary so trying out and altering the settings as you see fit is really all that can be done.
Harvest Amount- Between 1.5 and 2.0 with a max of 3.0
外围体育投注Another self explanatory setting. Multiplies how my resources you get per harvest attempt and again this really comes down to what you guys think is the best amount. This setting is one of the major grind removal settings so potentially tripling the resources you gain if not more is up to you.
外围体育投注Dino Character Stamina Drain- 0.5
外围体育投注This stat affects how fast or slowly your dino's stamina drains from sprinting, harvesting and attacking. The lower the value the slower the stamina drain and this allows you to ride dinos longer. Making traveling a little easier and with less needing to stop while their stamina rebuilds.
外围体育投注Make sure Allow Anyone Baby Imprint Cuddle is checked. This allows anyone to cuddle the baby for imprint boost not just the person who imprinted the baby. This can allow a more group set up allowing people to wonder off without loosing benefits.
Not really sure how much you guys will get into the whole kibble taming and breeding but here are some settings.
外围体育投注Lay Egg Interval- 0.5
This dictates how often tamed dinos will lay non fertilized eggs. The main use of these eggs is making kibble which provides the best taming speed and effectiveness (stat boost during tameing) in dinos. If you guys don't give a shit about the best taming effectiveness you can ignore this stat as the eggs don't have a lot of uses outside of kibble production.
外围体育投注Mating Interval- 0.5
外围体育投注This as it sounds speeds up the rate you can mate two tamed dinos. Again this depends on how much you guys are going to get into the taming and imprinting on dinos for stat boosts. If you don't think you will care then you can leave it at normal. The time between mating isn't that long if it will just be something you do once in a while.
Edit. I was incorrect about this one. The lower the number the faster the mating.
Egg Hatch Speed- 10.0
This will multiply the speed at which eggs hatch so you will not have to sit around waiting as often for them to hatch.
Baby Mature Speed- 10.0
外围体育投注This will speed up the rate of which babies grow. A Rex would normally take around 90 hours to mature and will now take 9 hours instead.
The next couple of ones are going to be to help reduce the grind a bit by increasing how much you can carry with your character and dino by boosting how much you gain per level.
外围体育投注Tamed Dinos Add Per Level Weight- 2.0
外围体育投注This will double the weight carry ability of tamed dinos per stat point put into them. This lets them haul more and reduces trips needed.
Player Stats Per level
外围体育投注Temp Fort- 2.0
外围体育投注This will double the weight carry per level allowing you to carry more and reduce grind. As well as double your temperature fortitude which effects your hot and cold tolerance. It won't make the game to easy but it will make gathering resources and carrying them around easier and make it so you don't be constantly over heated in basic cloths depending on were you are. You will still need the snow outfits if you head to the snow areas.
外围体育投注Supply Crate Loot Quality- 5
外围体育投注This effects those supply crates that drop from the sky. Higher level means better items and blue prints.
外围体育投注Fish loot Quality- 5
外围体育投注Same as above only with fishing.
Resource Respawn Period- 0.5
Lower this number the faster the respawn of resources like trees, rocks, etc. Since you will be only playing on streaming days and the server will no doubt be off having this low will help speed up respawns so you aren't twiddling your thumbs waiting. And another one that will need to be altered based on your own playing and feeling of what fits for you guys.
外围体育投注There are a ton of settings in ARK and messing with them to find the right settings for the videos will be a trial and error. And no doubt there are far more comprehensive guides and videos about settings then this. And this doesn't even touch the mods that can be added on PC. These settings are based on me and my wife renting a server for use and a couple of friends on the PS4 and wanted to keep the spirit of the game without going overboard with making the game to easy.
It has been several months since then so if someone who has more up to date memory sees I have made any bad suggestions please feel free to correct me or give suggestions for other settings to be changed.
外围体育投注Edit: Forgot Tame speed multiplier
Taming Speed Multiplier- 20-50
As the name suggests this speeds up the rate at which you tame dinos. Larger ones like Rexes could take hours but these settings can reduce it to much more manageable levels of maybe 20 minutes or so depending on the dino. This again is a personal preference setting.
