At the moment there is a "Rain Bug" on the official servers as well as the non-official ones. The rain bug is essentially when the server initiates the rain, for some reason it should stop after a time but a block of rain continues and it won't go away. This bug is over our base at the moment so I have shut down the server, re-downloaded it and rebooted. This has done nothing to stop the rain bug. Normall rain does not come through the buildings and when you stand outside your thirst bar fills up however this rain bug makes it so the rain does come through the buildings and you cannot see your thirst bar filling up. I have looked at the ARK steam discussions and this is what they had to say: 'PHANTOM RAIN CAUSING SERIOUS FATAL CRASHES!!!Here is the progression of the rain! Rains once it stays...Twice it starts to stack...Three times continues to stack starts to spread in a larger radius...4th time more stacking more spreading...5th walls of unsee through able phantom rain lots of fps lag...6th it starts raining for real only instead of being able to see visible drops all you hear is the sound in areas without the phantom rain already falling...7th unbearable lag...8th Fatal Error Crash9th trying to reload continues to Fatal Error Crash Upon Load Your save file becomes corrupted...(Note: stopping and starting the server gets rid of the rain for small period of time but it comes back harder and faster and spreads quicker, Have been testing it with numerous Local Games This has happened to two servers they couldn't figure out how to fix it and had to restart the full server from scratch... Everyone lost all of their stuff. The Server Owners are refusing to reload the server till patch. On my local game my game started crashing at 9th... Luckily I kept a back up file and deleted the corrupt one. However I started tinkering around with it and seeing if I could replicate it and seeing how the progression works. If you have an unofficial server I highly recommend shutting down your server before it starts to build to the crash!' The bad news is after I re-downloaded the server today I backed it up...and overwritten the old files (before the rain bug) so if the server has to do a roll back it will still have the bug. Our server is playable and the rain hasn't spread yet or caused any of the following problems as above. The developers are working on a patch for it. Will keep everyone posted as soon as they release the new patch. Thanx ice.
