Rules

RULES

DO NOT try to work around the rules and limits that we have put in place.
Please remember that you must also follow the Ark Official rules From Wildcard, these can be found below:

Note - that small tribe Rules and PvE rules do not apply to this server.
It is up to the player and their responsibility to understand and follow the rules below and to check them regularly as they are subject to change, at the discretion of the admin team at any time.
If you are unsure whether something is allowed or not, please raise a ticket with us, within discord and a member of the admin team will get back to you as soon as possible.

We (the admin team), reserve the right to intervene in any situation where we feel things have gotten out of hand.
This IS a PVP server, however, we do aim for a Friendly/Chilled PvP atmosphere, so please bare this in mind when playing. ALSO, just because you might not want to participate in PVP doesn't mean you won't be attacked.
Please prepare yourself to be attacked at any time.
NO Interfering Boss Fights except for Tameable Titans on Extinction
Your tribe’s name MUST be the same on all maps and include the same members (max of 4) on all maps as well. Players are responsible for who they invite in their tribe and alliances. Make sure you trust someone before giving them access to something you do not want to lose. Admins WILL NOT intervene in such matters.
Players should choose unique names for their characters and tribes and not impersonate others. “123”, generic names and names containing unreadable characters such as # are not allowed, as well as changing tribe name to conceal your identity. Once you chose a tribe name you must keep it that name, unless you approve it with an admin.
Oil nodes and gas veins should stay unlocked. Charge nodes should be freely accessible.
BUILDING

Admins ask tribes to keep the number of structures to a limit. This includes spikes and foundation scattered around the maps. Each tribe may have 2 bases per map, 1 main base, (STRUCTURE LIMIT: - 50 x 50) and 1 smaller base. HOWEVER, ORP will only be available for one location per map. CHOOSE WISELY.
WARNING – Admin reserve the right, at any time, to destroy any structures that are deemed to be exceeding the structure limit.
STRICTLY NO BUILDING IN ARTIFACT CAVES, AND NO BLOCKING SPAWN POINTS. This includes GENERATORS AND TELEPORTERS! If you are found to be built in any of these spots, admin reserve the right to destroy your build.
STRICTLY NO GENERATORS ARE TO BE BUILT ON SADDLES/PLATFORMS.

FOBS

Fobs for PvP can be put up but need to be removed after raid.
~ A FOB should not exceed 4x4x4 in size.
~ ORP should not be placed on a FOB.
~ Only one FOB is allowed per base attacked
~ If the defending tribe has built in a cave or an enclosed area, the FOB shouldn’t be placed within turret range of the entrance.
~ Spam and any other structures placed during a raid by either the attacking or defending tribe should be removed as soon as the raid is over.
~ No foundation/pillar/structures restricting building/Fobbing outside of bases.
Defensive structures (turret towers/gates/walls/spam) should NOT extend further than 30 foundations away from the base perimeter. *A base perimeter is defined by the outer most wall or gate within the confines of the enclosed area for indoor bases, or the outer perimeter wall for outdoor bases. *
Excessive Foundation/Wall/Gate spamming is NOT PERMITTED and is subject to admin removal. If you are unsure if your spammed area is considered excessive (it probably is) but feel free to ask an admin to check
Do not block any access to the surface/Aberrant zone (Aberration/Valguero) Obs are NOT to be built on except for beds/sleeping bags.

OFFLINE RAIDING

THERE IS ACTIVE ORP: No damaging, stealing or moving a player’s structures, items or Dino’s, who is offline or killing an offline players’ creature.
ORP activates 20 minutes after the last tribe member leaves the map if YOU ARE NOT BEING ATTACKED! If someone is attacking you and you leave, there is a penalty of 90 extra minutes. In this case they can continue raiding you for almost 2 hours before ORP kicks in. This rule is null if you leave your body scattered outside your base. IE: Items in/on your body can be stolen.
ORP only covers 30 foundations wide, therefore, dinos, items, structures etc out with this distance, are fair game.
If you or your Dino is taken prisoner and your abductor goes offline, you can request help getting free from an admin.
ORP will only be active for 2 weeks at any given time. If you wish to keep your ORP active and will be offline for longer than 2 weeks (14 days), YOU MUST RAISE A TICKET IN DISCORD, with a valid reason as to why. NO TICKET = NO ORP after 2-week period = base/dinos are fair game.

LANGUAGE

Swearing, sexual jokes, racist comments, inappropriate remarks or other language deemed in poor taste and being toxic is NOT allowed in ANY chat (in-game, voice or discord)
Please note, this is an English based server, so in keeping things fair and the moderation of chat easier, please refrain from speaking any other language but English.
 
ADMINS

These players help with anything that is related to the server and its running.
They MAY compensate for items or creatures lost during a rollback or some other server related bugs (including Wildcard hashups) However, this is at their discretion (Screen shot log proof or similar will help here) If one admin says he will not comp for something please do not ask another (like playing mum and dad off each other).

Admins WILL NOT use their admin powers to help with in game matters if it is not related to the above-mentioned reasons. So, for example, if you lose a Dino or items due to legitimate game play, they must not be asked for replacements. If you need help in playing the game, taming a Dino, finding a death bag, etc. ask your fellow players as that does not fall within the roles of admins.
Chilled Ark Admin bases ARE OFF LIMITS and must not be attacked. (NOTE: admin bases may still be defended with Turrets etc and should be treated with the same caution as any other base).  A player knowingly starting PVP with an Admin without prior arrangement will potentially be treated as a rule breaker.
Admins are allowed to have a secondary character to play the game with (THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO USE ADMIN COMMANDS UNDER THIS CHARACTER) they can either choose to disclose their identity OR keep it a secret. This character is subject to PVP.
Admins DO NOT use their commands to gain benefit for themselves or other players.  Commands are logged, and can, and will be checked if needed.
Admin accounts (characters with ADMIN in name or tribe) CANNOT give or trade items or materials or blueprints to players - PLEASE DO NOT ASK.
If you believe an admin is abusing their powers by spawning items/dinos for themselves or other players, please put in a ticket on discord and an investigation will be conducted.
RULE BREAKERS WILL BE HANDLED AT THE ADMINS DISCRETION. Spamming chat, vulgarities, toxicity will be handled how the admins deem necessary.
Please keep our community safe and fun for everyone.

DISCORD RULES

No Swearing, sexual jokes, racist comments, inappropriate remarks or other language deemed in poor taste and being toxic in voice or text channels. Public channels are for all ages and this should be respected.
No Pornographic or obscene images or language are to be posted in ANY channel.

DO NOT DM your favourite admin asking for help, you will be asked to make a TICKET. Any direct messages to admins may be ignored.

If someone offends you, please try to resolve it amongst yourselves. If this is not possible, speak to a Chilled Ark Admin or the Discord Admin for assistance in resolving the matter if you want a third party.  

If you want your own channel, open a ticket and you can ask a Discord Admin to create you one (either text or voice) You must specify whether you would like a text channel or a voice channel, or both, and what your tribe name is, and you must also specify all members in your tribe, so that they too can have access to the tribe channel.

All non - server related messages should really be DM'd to someone. Excessive off topic chats are subject to admin deletion.

NO SPAM is allowed in any of the channels. Any member found to be spamming channels, will be issued with a warning. Continuation of spam after warning, could lead to being kicked/banned if deemed necessary.
