Playing two characters. - Pia - 06-09-2017

Hello, Lovelies!

We have decided to allow people to play up to 2 characters on the server. You may upload and download, but you still can not have two different accounts on the server.

Should you decide to play two different characters, the two characters CAN NOT interact in ANY way, whatsoever. You can not share Dinos, gear, coin, buildings, information, ANYTHING, in ANY way. If you are caught breaking these guidelines, you will be given an immediate strike and you will lose the item / dino / so on that you were sharing.

Have fun and enjoy your roleplay! <3

SIDE NOTE: Staff will NOT replace any characters or items lost.

Is there a reason why we're not able to use two separate steam accounts? Because I believe that having two different steam accounts for separate characters is MUCH easier than uploading and downloading.


RE: Playing two characters. - ScalpelUser - 06-09-2017

Super excited for this! I had three quick questions.

1. Is there a set time frame that a character can stay uploaded before it vanishes?
2. If we upload and download them again will this affect anything with the tribe or imprints?
3. When we upload a character for storage should it be stripped of everything?

Thanks and looking forward to some fun!

1. "Obelisk Upload Timer - 1 week"
2. It sure can, we had this problem back on Aeternia/Crasite. Not advised when you have a solo tribe.
3. Wise to do, because #ArkThings

While you are correct that it is much easier than uploading and downloading we also have much less control over the ease of abuse. Last time we allowed multiple accounts there were difficulties keeping track of players multiple accounts and as a result it become cumbersome for the staff team. Also we had people abusing the ability to have two steam accounts to share items and wealth between them, which is as you can tell by the post above a strike worthy offense, we still want to remove that ease of transfer as a possibility, so people will be less likely to do it by accident because something is easier to pick up from your other character than to make yourself.

Hope that helps.
