I thought the whole server reset thing was just while these games were in active development and once released that wasn't going to be the case, maybe its stuck around because people like it for whatever reason? Maybe its controlled on a server by server basis
No, it is a core feature.
Any time the game developers release an update ALL servers have a forced "WIPE" so all have to start fresh.
You can have base game servers or custom servers (Allow more items to stack, custom maps, skins etc) but they all have a scheduled wipe system in place.


It is just a concept I can not grasp still. Progression I thought is what triggers the brain. Seeing numbers go off, seeing damage numbers, getting gear, looking unique and seeing your stats and how you sit.

I don't know how its grown but there used to be roaming gangs on there would go around naked pillaging others work and stealing their stuff. That's the impression I got anyway from YT vids. It looked kind of fun but Ark seems like a more developed and well rounded game with a lot more going for it.
There are different servers. Solo, Duo, Quad etc. Bigger can have clans and there are people who just raid bases, make trap bases etc.
I not really looked at ARK but there are a few of these games where things constantly reset. You may keep blueprint knowledge or some things but the start over with no constant progression I am not sure is just me being old or a new thing that is fine or if others agree etc?

it's all up and running.... well one bulb linked to one temp sensor and the temp sensor isn't in the freezer yet... but you get the idea :-)

Quote
- id: '1660686610046'
  alias: change bulb
  description: ''
  trigger:
  - platform: state
    entity_id: sensor.temp1
  condition: []
  action:
    service: light.turn_on
    target:
      entity_id: light.wiz_rgbw_tunable_44a1ea
    data:
      rgb_color: >
          {% if states.sensor.temp1.state | int <= -25 %} [0, 0, 255]
          {% elif states.sensor.temp1.state | int <= -20 %} [51, 51, 255]
          {% elif states.sensor.temp1.state | int <= -15 %} [102, 102, 255]
          {% elif states.sensor.temp1.state | int <= -10 %} [153, 153, 255]
          {% elif states.sensor.temp1.state | int <= -5 %} [204, 204, 255]
          {% elif states.sensor.temp1.state | int <= -0 %} [255, 102, 78]
          {% elif states.sensor.temp1.state | int <= 5 %} [255, 51, 51]
          {% else %} [255, 0, 0]
          {% endif %}
      brightness_pct: 100

took a while to get the hang of the coding, a lot of examples online are for older versions etc. and there's 50 different ways to do everything


but loving home assistant so far :-)

I have 7 Switch games still sat in their plastic wrap and I pre-ordered Diablo II Resurrected; its been a year and I've not even booted that up once. I have hundreds of Steam and Epic free games I have never played and an Xbox One X sat in the box that's never been unpacked since I moved house three years ago.

This is why I'm not buying a PS5 even though I want one  :lol:

Oh and for the reasons you stated above, I have zero interest in gaming online with others now and would much rather enjoy solo games I can play without worrying about interruptions or keeping to a schedule with others. The last time I did any serious online gaming was with some old work colleages on the GTA5 heists and a bit of Quake Champions to see how rusty I was, but that was when I only had one infant. I'm looking forward to the days I get my evenings back or the kids are old enough to game with!
