Hi i am have big issues with my breeding times. Before the genesis updates everything was fine. Then all of a sudden after the update my loot drops randomly changed. I fixed this issue. Now my breeding timers have changed. I have changed the BabyMatureSpeedMultiplier= several ways 200-50, then 10 now 5. Between 175-165 is where I want it for my dino' s. But it makes cloning to 30 seconds. BabyMatureSpeedMultiplier=5 Makes Cloning 15 minutes. But it make raising Giga's 1d13h. Can somebody help me please.

”You are able to switch your private server right over to the new map.“ Probably better to test that theory first instead of claiming it as fact. No option for Xbox servers.
We still can't use the map on our xbox private servers.
