I haven’t looked at the server settings too closely yet. I believe it is set to auto-save every 60 minutes. We can certainly speed that up, but our experience on non-SSD hard drives was that it would cause a multi-second hiccup and warping and it was getting more annoying to have that happen every 10 or 15 minutes as opposed to losing time on a crash. However, this hosting service mentioned having SSDs, I believe, so we can certainly make the backups more frequent.
@barstein, I am good with that Structures Plus mod if you guys are. I added you as an admin so you can help make decisions and research/update the server with mods if we want and update ARK Server settings. Feel free to add that if you get an opportunity and make choices you feel would benefit the group as long as we keep people updated here. The hosting site had three different ways to add mods in their FAQ section and it didn’t seem too bad at all. I can look at it also, but am afraid I couldn’t get to it until Fri morning.
I have a list of a few things I would like to do eventually. One of them is tapering off the high end level grind, but I am not sure what the current numbers are yet. Also, there are many settings I didn’t check/verify yet, so I am sure there are others we would like to change as we get to them.
