Was time to update ARK server and complete backup and all that.
Alpha Rex / Carno / Raptors is a much discussed topic on official forum, as they break immersion & realism with their glowing red sparks etc.
Background idea is their ment as a mini bosses for tribes to take out, to kill to get some better loot. Their hp, strength is alot higher than (on Rex) than normal dinos.
After yesterdays incident with 3x Alpha rex spawning in near area and the close to impossible task of killing those, I decided to remove them entirely off the map today and have done adjustments to server config so they hopefully wont spawn. This is for alpha rex, alpha carno, alpha raptors, all of them shouldnt (in theory) spawn now.
If or when devs do some tweaks, removing the red glow (makes it more realistic), reduce their strength (let server admins decide etc) I will add them again.
Currently theres (yawn) bug with primitive settings, one dont get engrams to make metal buildings etc but they might drop in beacons. I have mailed the guys about this and will get some answer sooner or later.
Meanwhile, any “non primitive item” that drops as blueprint or is created, can and will be destroyed by server on more or less regular basis. So I suggest no one put time into creating things that will just be destroyed anyway.
IF theres any questions about it, msg Xena ingame.
