  • We are currently playing on ragnarok and would like to migrate to an old "the island" backuped map, using only a single server. For that I would really love to increase the tribute upload time. I tried to disable or atleast increase the 24-hours timer (by that I mean an uploaded item disappearing after 24 hours) but so far my attempts failed.

    I tried to achieve this by playing with these settings:

    Tribute Item Expiration Seconds

    Tribute Dino Expiration Seconds

    Tribute Character Expiration Seconds

    I am not using expert mode. I tried to set these values in the web interface to "0" or to "31449600", but that didn't change anything at all - if I upload an item it still shows the 24 hour upload timer.

    I also tried to look for a way to disable the timer at all, but it seems that is only possible by removing the cluster ID - which I will need to re-download everything after reinstating "the island" map on my server, so that I can't do.

    Is there anyone who managed to increase or disable the tribute upload timers who could give me any hints on how to achieve that ?

  • there has to be another setting altering the amount of time uploads are available, then. I altered these settings' numbers several times during the last week.

    I tried "259200" in all three lines. I put in one unit of clay in the "ARK DATA" tab and returned after 24 hours. It was gone.

    Then I tried "518400" in all three lines.. Same again - no more clay after 24 hours.

    Then I tried "129600" in all three lines.. Same, gone after 24 hours.

    The settings I am altering definitely don't change anything about the time the items stay available after the download.

  • Then I would suggest contacting support. Those are the only settings, and all my stuff stays for 72hrs although the timer says 24. I only use the WebUI so I know I havent done any ini customs. Also the server has to be offline to make those changes.

  • I did some more trying and testing before I contacted support. They answered:


    The rest of the mail links wiki and the forum asking me to look for help there..

    Guess I am out of luck..
