I love the settings you have on this server. However, Ark makes breeding a pain. Can we do a 2x or an even 3x multiplier on the maturing timer? As a working adult and father, I don't have the time to apply a 6 hour dedicated babysitting session for a dino. Plus my daughter plays on this server with me and truth be told, I'd prefer her not to spend half a day on the weekend on the computer.
This would be awesome. Once again, your server is amazing.

The breeding and hatching is already set to 3X as outlined on the settings thred on this forum. We also host annual events on various holidays that boost breeding to 5x or 6x. You can review our events thred to review past events. The breeding times differ based on type of dino with the giga taking the longest.
Its a very delicate issue finding a breeding sweet spot to allow for a realistic breed time experience without making it too easy as to get abused by more aggressive tribes that could use such settings to build large armys of massive high level dinos and cause havoc on smaller more peaceful tribes. While our servers have been very friendly and easy going it has been the current tribes and survivors that has kept them as such. But please keep in mind that at the end of the day, our servers are PVP servers and any tribe can raid any other tribe without notice or provocation. So while we do not govern the day to day actions of game play on our servers (as long as people play with in the limits of our rules outlined in our forum) we do attempt to do our best to set our settings in a way that the smaller or family tribes can enjoy their play time while at the same time not making it too easy for the hard core players that can play for extended hours a day.
Oh, I completely understand the PVP aspect, I'm not arguing that. In fact, it would be dull as pure PVE. I understand the need to find the sweet spot as well to avoid aggressive tribe min-maxing.
Is breeding and maturing work the same? I am really speaking of feeding a baby to a juvenile. Breeding on Ark is fairly new to me, but reading guides about the length it takes to get a baby to juvenile where it could essentially feed itself was mind-boggling.
