I've been playing on a 10 person server for the past couple of years by myself because after b6 months of playing single player, I noticed that a lot of resources were not respawning. After a lot of hard work and a lot of time invested, I was able to create mutated armies to finally take down the 3 Island guardians and the Overseer to ascend and finish the Island. I even got every single explorer note.
I would like to continue with the story and move to different maps but have no clue how to do it correctly. I've searched a lot for info on doing this but there are so many conflicting threads out there it's impossible to know what's correct and what's not.
All I want to know is.....
1. How do I switch maps correctly
2. Can I return to my Island base whenever I want to and everything still be there? I don't want to lose all my tames and gear that I spent years gaining.
3. Which map should I be going to next? Is it Scorched Earth? I heard when ascending off the Island that you are brought there but I was only able to spawn back on the island. Unless I did something wrong.
I am good at playing the game but not very good at the technical stuff when it comes to using a server. So any help would be much appreciated.
