FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO THE SERVERS EVER WIPE?
We utilize an API plugin that removes structures and dinos after 32 days of inactivity. We routinely take care of problems that usually cripple PvE servers by performing routine cleanups of mod files, reinstallation of base game files, and regular profile and save validation passes.
On an as-needed basis, we perform a server "migration" by opening up new servers with full and open transfer enabled. The old server are retired once players finish the move. Migrations allow us to reap the benefits of fresh saves while retaining everyone's progress.
So far, this has been a semi-annual event – and may no longer be necessary with our recent (January 2021) addition of the decay plugin. Join us in discord for the latest information on this process!
ARE THERE STARTER KITS?
Yes! And they're free!
Ragnarok and Aberration host a community center with starter gear and mounts. Players may take as much as they need, and donations to the centers are also accepted. Our support team regularly restocks the centers.
DO YOU HAVE A STORE OR SHOP?
We've always felt that a shop would diminish face-to-face interaction among our players. Our community boasts an active trading channel, open to everyone that joins the cluster!
ARE THERE DONOR PERKS?
Yes, via Patreon
All perks are purely cosmetic and practical. Our goal is never to offer something that cannot be gotten in-game without a reasonable effort. Patrons also get access to a lounge where we preview and workshop upcoming changes and ideas.
Your support helps us keep things tidy and take care of the bills. We welcome, but never expect, tips from our community. Jax and Zuka handle upkeep costs themselves, with help from our community. All funds go towards server utilities and projects that improve Æsir in tangible ways.
To date, our community has helped fund the purchase of four Ryzen 7 systems, four uninterruptible power supplies, NVMe SSDs for every host, and professional-grade network gear.
DOES THE MOD LIST EVER CHANGE?
We take mod suggestions through our Discord. Our goal is to keep our mod load consistent across the cluster and avoid unbalanced or unnecessary mod additions.
Scorched Earth and Aberration have their Eco Décor compliments, while The Center has additional structure mods, making it our builder's paradise.
WHERE IS THE CLUSTER HOSTED?
North Dakota, USA
Æsir runs on hardware owned by our founders, Jax and Zuka. We run the servers out of our home, handling the day-to-day operations with the assistance of our fantastic support team!
