- Launching Friday 12th March @ 8pm GMT -
Thank you to everyone who played during Season 2 helping make it our most successful Season ever! We have followed the cluster closely since we entered Chapter 2 and heard all your feedback. Given the overwhelming success of the last two seasons, we will be making minimal changes - But changes nonetheless, check out the info below.
Chapter 2, Season 3
CORE SETTINGS (No changes)
Tribe Limit = 8 Man
Harvesting & XP = 2x
Taming = 2.5x
Breeding = 5.0x
SEASON 3 CHANGES
Hall of Famer Tribe this season will win a $1000 Cash Prize (not store giftcard) for their Tribe!
► Increased Paracer HP stat per level by approximately 15%.
Following a successful poll mid-way through Season 2, we are now able to introduce this change for Season 3.
► Removed Stego "Tail Whip" (right-click) ability.
After feedback from Season - Stegos & Aberrant Stegos will no longer be able to perform the right-click Tail Whip ability.
► Maximum Genesis Hexagons per Character changed from 2,500,000 to 150,000.
This change has been introduced to combat a dupe method on MTS, where players were duping their characters and spending points on Loot Crates over and over. Although this change does not fully fix the dupe method, it severely impacts the productivity of it - We will continue to counter this method but further development is required.
► Aberration Radiation Sickness readded.
Radiation Sickness will be back in Radiation Zones Aberration as intended.
► Island Ice Cave Buff
We heard your feedback from Season 2, and Ice Cave will be getting some love. The change we are making is lowering the ceiling of the chokepoint to be a maximum height of a Human character being able to walk and run through, meaning trikes and anything similar can no longer walk through the chokepoint.
► New Quality of Life & Visuals
We've added some new quality of life visuals and effects to Item Caches. Item caches that are not tribe-owned will now have a visual effect around them showing if those bags have been looted. We have also added a new visual effect for Cryopods & Empty Cryopods. Examples are shown below.
Green & White Effect = Tribe & Player has not checked Item Cache
Green Effect = Tribe has not checked Item Cache
White Effect = Player has not checked Item Cache
No Effect = Item Cache has been checked by Player + Tribe
► New Exclusive Anti-Popcorn Mod
After thorough testing and multiple meetings with the mod developer. We are very excited to be adding Recycled Popcorn Mod to our cluster, this mod solves the popcorning issue once and for all making online raids worth it once again.
How it works:
Once a group of single items, item caches, dead bodies expire, the loot will be transported into a Void Glitch.
Loot can be taken back out by attacking it with melee or weapons (very short distance) or biting on the Void glitch with a dino.
Void glitches cannot be destroyed & will remain on the map until the loot is taken back out or expires (Voids will last for around 1 hour).
Void glitches operate via a grid, so the map will not be spammed with Voids - instead, all dropped loot within a certain grid will all be entered into the same nearby void glitch to prevent spam.
Void glitches can be accessed by anyone who is close enough to interact with them.
Void glitch expiration timer increases each time a new item is added to it.
A predefined list of "junk" items will be exempt from entering Void glitches to prevent junk from creating voids.
► Lowered Base Temperature on Scorched Earth by around 40%
To make Heat Stroke and the map more enjoyable, quality of life change for tribes living & fobbing there.
► Re-added Ziplines
Aberration players will be happy to hear. After the fix from Wildcard, we are happy to re-add Ziplines back to our cluster.
► New MyMTS "Kick Me" feature
Fed up with the error "There is already a player with this account connected!" bug? You can now use the "Kick Me" button on MyMTS to allow you to rejoin your map. This feature is coming very soon!
► Character Transferring with Inventory block via PvP Cooldown
If you are in active PvP Cooldown, you will be unable to instantly transfer off map to another server. You are still able to upload items or transfer your character if you are naked. But transferring with an inventory is now prohibited if you are in active PvP. We have made this change to stop players from "escaping" PvP by leaving a server suddenly where they would normally be met with a transfer timer on official etc. PvP Cooldown has been lowered to 2.5mins from 5mins following this change.
► Max 2 Gateways per Platform Saddle
Matching official server settings for Gateframes on Paracers etc.
► New Weekly Tribe Wars Event every Friday!
We are super excited to announce a brand new weekly event to our Main Cluster - TRIBE WARS.
Tribe wars is a unique event where every Friday tribes will clash in an objective-based game mode on a separate server for 4 hours until midnight GMT. Here's how it works.
Every Friday @ 8pm GMT - Tribe Wars server will open to the cluster.
Players will be able to transfer dinos/items to Tribe Wars instantly.
There will be 2x predefined locations of capturable TEK Teleporter zones similar to King of the Hill or Capture the Artifact.
These structures are Admin Spawned and cannot be destroyed and act as Foundation Claim Range.
Tribes can capture the structure by holding "E" and using the radial menu
Once a capture zone has been capture that tribe must defend it, other tribes are allowed to attack the zone
The server has a 20 turret limit so it will be more focused on Player & Dino PvP, but players can still build defences/FOBs.
The Tribes who hold the zone by the time the event ends will win boosted rates & discounted shop for the week.
Notifications will be displayed in-game for when a tribe captures, contests, or owns a capture zone.
The Tribe Wars server will be open for 4 hours from 8pm - 00:00am GMT
Each week, a new map and different Capture locations will be chosen for Tribe Wars to keep things fresh.
More details on Tribe Wars coming in a separate post soon. Feedback or ideas are welcome.
