Channels. Ark has 3 chat “channels”: Global (Enter key or L1 + Touchpad) Tribe (Backslash or L1 + Options)
PSA- Allied Tribes can see your tribe chat.
Creating and Joining a Tribe To invite someone to your Tribe, approach them and hold the action key (default E ) to bring up the interaction wheel. If you’re able to invite to your Tribe, the option will appear to send an invitation. Hold your cursor over the invitation until the timer is up to send the invitation.
Backslash (by default) toggles auto- hide chat. If you turn off the “auto chat box” option, then it just straight turns the chat on/off. So, turn off “auto chat box” and then hit backspace.
Just hit L1+touchpad and then the chat appears. Use text as usual on the PS4, I either use the D-Pad to type or an USB keyboard.
There is an option in the game options > Advanced Options to enable / disable voice toggle. If this is enabled, voice will turn on when you press the key and stop when you press it again. If it is disabled, then it works as push-to- talk, and you must hold the button down while speaking.
Pretty sure you can take your save game from singleplayer and just move it onto a dedicated server and have all your stuff there. You can whitelist certain people so that only they are allowed.
Alliances add players and creatures to the whitelist for AI, as if they were in the same tribe. Allied dinos cannot hurt each other with their attacks, so you can fight together without killing each other.
To accept a Tribe invitation, bring up the interaction menu on the person that invited you and hold your cursor over the invitation until the timer is up to accept. Tribe owners can also designate members in their tribe as admins, allowing those members to send invites to anyone as well.
If your admin commands are being broadcasted to all players in the server via chat then you have your AdminLogging setting set to true. -If you’d like to disable it, set it to false. This setting is located in the GameUserSettings.
