I would (and a lot of other server managers) like to see some love on the mod system for our private servers.
As TheJedi mentioned here: Automatic Mod support
It’s a lot of work to integrate your community to new mods. A lot of players don’t know they need to activate the correct mods or hor don’t take their time to compare their modlist to the server modlist.
The solution we’re looking for:
On login in to a server with new mods (that the player don’t have installed AND activated) you will be promoted with an info alert box explain what mods will be installed AND activated to grant access and login to the server. You will also get informed what mods would be inactivated if that’s a thing for a player. All new players usually needs support with the modlist activation feature.
I got several peeps telling me they play ARK until it’s implemented, coz they just wanna play a game, not manage mods. We’re done with the dinos, right guys?
IRL dreams - how we want it to be experienced.
We get a tips on a new mod.
We make a straw poll so the community can vote.
The admin adds or remove the mod / mods in the Server Manager and restarts with an update.
Community relog and get prompted with the mods changes .
Choose install and continue the magic, barbaric adventure.
Much Love/ Daniel (aka MrAPOD)
