5. Immediately after joining a map, please make a tribe. Certain plug-ins require you to have a tribe, so not having a tribe (even solo) will cause problems.

6. After you have joined a map and made a tribe, be sure to connect your account to the discord:

          1. IN GAME Type /setdiscord "discord name" without the quotations. Ex: /setdiscord eternalark#1111 The bot will send you a code to authorize you account in-game
          2. IN GAME type /setdiscord "authorization key" using the key the bot just sent you
          3. If you would like the bot to warn you when your structures are being damaged, type /raidwarning <minutes> , you don't need the <> Ex: /raidwarning 15 (will warn me every 15 minutes if my structures take damage), /raidwarning 0 (will turn off the warnings)
7. Link your tribe log to a web hook of your tribe discord so you get your tribe log notifications right to your tribe discord channel:
          IN GAME type /settribeloghook "your discord webhook" and it will connect a CLUSTER-WIDE tribe log to the discord channel of your choosing
8. For a list of server commands and other very useful information, please check out INFORMATION page. If you want to support the server, you can find more info on that in the DISCORD. Thank you for considering supporting the server. 

And you are all set! Welcome and enjoy your experience with Eternal Ark! Good luck and have fun!
