ARK: Control Panel Feature Requests

One thing that I think is missing, or at least I am having an issue if this is not working as expected, is that Modify Server Config would actually read what the server has in it.

 

I screwed up my settings and change them back to default. I had a backup of the configs and threw them into the saved directory and I assumed these settings would appear in the Modify Server Config but nope. Nothing. It's all defaults. I would have expected that to import the setting that are in the ini files. I could help you with that code if you need it.

I would like to build near a drop box just to finish my platform it here a setting or command line that I can put in? A friend that has a server said put this command line in but it doesn't seem to do what I needed it to do.  

PvEAllowStructuresAtSupplyDrops=true 

in GameUserSettings.ini

hmm tbh i don't think there is much you could add to contol panel itself atm .

 

i think we need to learn a lot more about the files and what can be done with them. personally i have done nothing today but scour the ftp files looking for spawn files day night cycle file as these are the 2 things i want to change most right now. 

 

for me the cycle of day and night is to quick i would prefer a 1 hour day and 15 min night   . and i think all servers have far to many dinos on them atm some areas you walk round a corner and there is 10 - 15 dinos walking round . 

 

an obvious thing to add to contol panel would be a autosaveworld button that we could press just before we did an update and restart.

I have Day at "0.25" and Night at "2" seems playable, but will have a good setting by 1.11

I am NEW  to using your Services, and getting my own server with you.   I don't know everything YET>  But approx 1 week  into my new server  here are some suggestions.

AND i want to say,  Very happy with your services  / server so far,  No down time,  and even with - 0  experience in this kind of thing, I am not having very many major issues,, although there is a lot of trial and error  figuring things out.

These may have been covered in other posts,, I however did not read all 15 pagers of suggestions yet :)

 

On Control panel web page,  should be an ez access, easy to read LOG< of all that has happened in last 24 hours on the server,  you can read a basic list,  see who is on, who is off, who got raided,  killed  etc.   So I can do a quick check  before im off to work for the day, or at the end of the day when i get home.

* Better explantion on y our config setup  etc.
So i go through your config, and setup options.  And some items have that have an extra  Info or b utton to explain further,  but I think the VAST MAJORITY of the features could use the same thing,  as the meaning, and function is NOT Clear just by reading the name,   and  I  For one, who Don't have any experience in this department  have to go to Google CONSTANTLY to search and look up all the info regarding that setting,  to clarify what i want to do.

Is it possible to change the Character limit, on the server title,  really doesnt let me list  boosted settings and xp etc without knowing all the oodles of short forms of everything,  which I don't,   having a Longer Server name character amount would be nice to throw in some extra tidbits of info for those looking for a server.

I noticed there are no dino options available for Ark extinction in the setup files,  for dino spawns  etc.  I thought Mana's were only avail there,  and should be spawn options for titans   Unless I dont know somethign  which is entirely possible :)

Would love it if you could manually edit what things give what exp, like you can in the game already. For example, setting it so that crafting things gives 10% exp of normal, but killing things gives 2x as much xp as normal.

Currently you only have one overall setting for general xp, but the game both supports, and has it built into its options, that you can manually adjust each of these things.

As an example, here's the one for xp for killing things:
KillXPMultiplier=1.00000

This is in the game.ini file.

Not a super savvy server mod here.. but a couple features I really liked in other places was the ability to easily add users to whitelist, admin and exclusive join lists.

Also would like to be able to add the creative mode toggle to a server, to avoid having to manually give players the ability or hand out the cheats passcode.

It might be in there and Im just missing it.  But just a small QoL thing that Id love to see.

Add these ServerSetting as a toggle

So we can build around supply drop locations

PvEAllowStructuresAtSupplyDrops

Added just two days ago, but hell yes.
bAllowFlyerSpeedLeveling

 

I have them currently in the added stuff in the .ini, but the flying one doesnt seem to work.

I'm brand spankin' new and trying to learn the ropes as well, and second this! The little question mark or something you could see or hover over to give a better explanation of what changing each value up or down will do (ex: if you increase this value, dinos will do x times more damage - if you decrease this value, dinos will do x times less damage) or something like that?? There were a few things i was doing trial and error with and i feel like i'm making the game harder with tweaking certain things because i'm clueless, haha

Will add my request for the ability to adjust itemstack limits via config as the custom InI field isn't allowing enough characters to do it manually and add creature spawners and other custom only settings.

I would like to suggest that I have a way to see the actual running game.ini and GameUserSettings.ini after you do whatever voodoo you do to combine them from all the different places on the control panel. The way it is all broken out all over on the web interface makes it hard to see what is actually running. I use the add commands to the end of the file boxes you supply, and also have to add the mods to the main control panel page instead of in the ini file where they belong, so my ini files never seem to reflect them so I have no clue what command/options my server is even running with.
