  • DOAGEN

    Changed the title of the thread from “I started my own server and tweaked options and now beacons barely spawn and when they do they're either white or rainbow” to “beacons barely spawn with issues.”.
  • Update: we fixed the issue. The issue was that we had "OnlyAllowSpecficEngrams" set to true. Which cause the beacons to barely spawn and to not give out higher teir items the chance to spawn. This option also prevented alphas from giving you loot once they were killed, and also prevented cave loot drops from spawning.
