How to set up SQL. Is there a detailed tutorial for reference? 非常感謝!.......................................
I am so torn on this review. When you can figure it out, this plugin works beautifully. There are a lot of features and it's a lot of fun having ways to give cosmetic rewards to players on the server. However...

The readme file and instructions listed here are very minimal. I generally love the Ark modding community and know how busy these creators can get; I would be happy to make a more in-depth guide or Youtube tutorial (I've done it before) to help shed some clarity on some of the points not listed in the ReadMe, but I was treated so poorly when I joined Kal's Discord to ask some clarifying questions.

First, I've read everything provided here and Googled what I could, but some of my very basic yes/no questions were not answered, so I joined the Discord. I think that in itself is annoying--why do I have to join a Discord and dig through archives of previous user questions, FAQs, and Instructions not left neatly in one place? Why can't this be in the ReadMe or a website? So I asked my question in the appropriate support channel. Kal basically told me that he didn't have time to explain things to me and his little lackey kept making snide remarks like "lol people don't read," "we're too busy for this." I literally read everything. I tried to ask where I could find this information, to which the lackey replied "I guess u have to pay someone to help u lol." Everyone is so busy that they can't provide a link to the channel? Does the info just not exist? After a bunch of searching around the discord, I finally found a previous post by another user that led me to an answer.

I read all these reviews about how Kal is such a nice guy and I cannot believe how rudely I was treated. I was complimentary about the plugin and up front about where I had already searched for information, and that's how I was treated and they had the gal to ask me for money when I couldn't get the free version of this plug-in working. Why answer at all just to be nasty? I would have felt better if I were just ignored or had my post not buried by insults so someone else could help me.

I love this plug-in, but I was so put off by that. I won't be helping out by making a guide or youtube video, but if you have questions and are similarly treated rudely, feel free to message me on here and I'll try to point you in the right direction.
amazing plugin, using it for my 16 server ark cluster! Love it and the great support. The developer is quick to respond if there is ever an update or for feature request.
Awesome Plugin Love it been using it for more than 2 years now he did a fabulous job making this worth it there is always new update / he is responsive
There is a Trojan virus in the archive. This is fine?...........................................................
Best of the best!

Good support, free for small servers, not expensive! Lot of functionality, 100% recommendation
Best Cross Chat system - Kals Support is epic - I highly recommend paying for this plugin to support the authors work.
Top Plugin, TopSupport, Easy Config

Kal is a great guy I can only recommend him we use several of his plugins so far no problems and if something happened you got immediate support. he always tries to help everyone as well as his support/admins

best regards
idk about the easy config part haha
Setup is not easy but once you get it working it does wonders for a cluster! Excellent plugin to keep players engaged on less populated servers of the cluster.
Absolute must-have for any Ark community, big or small. Basic functionality is easy to set up, and it's easy to add more as you need it. Crosschat gives text-only and casual players a chance to communicate out-of-game, even if they are shy of voice comms. Wouldn't run a server without it now.
