server changes:

server updated to most current version
redid breeding multipliers to be in line with what we've used in the past
prime & mutton stack again (apparently this is a bug, not intended in vanilla)
alpha whales are now alpha squids
regular whales are trilos
shitbirds are trilos
pegos are dodos
overall dino multiplier up from 1.0 to 1.2
slightly decreased player food drain
all wild dinos wiped and respawned

possibly one or two other small things that i cant think of right now, but possibly not

let me know if you run into any issues or if you see any of the dinos that should have been replaced.

also we currently have flyers on caves OFF - that's the default but i think we've turned it on in the past. we can discuss that one

server should be fine to play, it's actually not laggy, they seem to have fixed the dino wipe issues. it's just kinda slow loading new dinos in, so we won't be fully populated for 15 or so minutes. we're at like 8k - there were 45k before i upped the multiplier, wiped.

yeah my only minor concern is where the whales spawn, if the alpha squids are spawning in like shallow, low level areas and causing problems ill make them basilos or something

werd, do you still need ghille? i should be able to craft a suit of mostly primitive with 1 apprentice mask


two high is all you need to keep rex out. rex trap is only two high

I have a full ghillie suit now with only basic engram boots. I uh, figured out where all the organic poly was hanging out

yeah just get in touch with someone, a lot of us are in and out of discord depending on mood (everyoens playing like 8 hours in a row lol) but it's def a game that's easier to talk through than explain.

a filled feeding trough should be fine with the current food decay settings. though anyone would help you get back whatever you happen to lose

i'm not really worried, i don't have any super good tames yet other than the 200+ ptera i've been using for general utility purposes and my field of dung beetles which i don't think can starve anyway?

i also in four years of playing this game have never bred dinos, have no idea how to do it

otherwise have a pretty good setup going, although apparently very far away from everyone else

If you have a comical number of excess dinos it's usually pretty good idea to cull the herd a bit as rendering logjams can have an effect on the server as a whole.

I don't think multidinos effects the server as much as mega giant structures. The worst we've seen is bronto harvesting in the swamp. The AOE kills so much and the swamps are densely packed so it slows the whole thing down to a crawl during every tail swipe.

Then again there's been lots of optimization and we've had very few problems at all this run.

just put the best boy by the girls and then put the egg next to the 14 air conditioners and move them away from the air conditioners before they glitch into the foundation. I hear that non-wyvern eggs do not need 14 ac's

then you have like 20 wyverns and 10+ are un-mate-able so they get signed up for the wyvern wars

We should set up a stadium have banquo put all the reject wyvern inside set them all to aggressive and unclaim them at the same time and see what happens

getting out after unclaiming might be tricky

the game is pretty unforgiving and you were probably running towards an obelisk which honestly doesn’t have anything worth heading towards early game

I would recommend spawning in somewhere in the south west and focus on making yourself a starter home of thatch or wood with a bed so you can respawn there when you die and begin building towards making a real base
