While we respect your request and recommendations, we feel the server is currently set at its optimal settings. We have taken great efforts to balance our server so that it is not too easy where as people would get easily board or even worse attract those that would use high multipliers to quicky build with the sole intent of destroying the server as we know it, yet still make it so that those that dont have a lot of free time can still accomplish things they normally would not be able to on a standard server. We feel x3 taming and hatching along with 2x XP and harvest is a sweet spot.
As far as any mods, we have decided from the very beginning that we would not use any type of mods until the game is complete and all the major updates are complete. While mods can add an extra level of enjoyment to the game, it too can cripple an entire server once an update comes out that conflicts with the added mod. So for now we choose not to add any mods but might choose to add some in the future.
