  • Community Crunch 140: Extinction Chronicles II, & ARKaeology Ending Tomorrow!

    Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! :Jerbhi:

    Extinction Chronicles II

    Tomorrow there will be a client and server side update that will bring Extinction Chronicles II to survivors on PC, Xbox, and PS4. 

    Leading up to the release of Extinction there will be monthly drops of Extinction-related Explorer Notes on The Island, Scorched Earth, and Aberration. Once collected these notes will unlock new Extinction-related skins!

    There will also be the appearance of more powerful Tek-themed Dinosaur variants within the ARKs each month. These Tek Dinos are permanent additions (meaning they will continue to spawn even after the event is over), with a new one beginning to appear each month. In Extinction Chronicles I we released three Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Helmet and the Tek Rex. Tomorrow we're excited to bring you three new Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Boots and a new Tek creature, the Tek Stego!

    In addition, special colored dinos will be populating the ARKs. You'll be able to find creatures sporting purple, black, grey, and dark blue for the next week beginning tomorrow. Be sure to take advantage of these special colors before they're extinct!

    gotcha so bones, easter eggs, etc. are all useless on prim+ hopefully it will be fixed before the next event or maybe it will be thrown under the bus like this issues was when I first brought it up a week after the event started and the first day on prim+ servers. Just doesn't seem like the care takers for prim+ care at all for it. I guess we will just hope and wait for the sponsored mods to come to console and just move on because prim+ seems like a lost cause

    This is the the first thing I found regarding the skins being timed exclusives. If you do a some Research you might find better descriptions.

    1. why should we have to do research and go to redit to find these things. they should be on the official site. you just showed how they where misleading. 2. if you actually can read what it says " will be available to all players" this does not mean not free to all players, which they brought these add ons out making them available to all players as previously stated 3. i googled terms like "pre ordered skins" " exclusive tek/bionic skins" on multiple occasions and looked at a ton of sites, not once did this pop up. granted this could be due to all the other stuff posted afterwards. i have said what i have needed to. dont really wanna rant for days on this. im just appalled at how they are treating the customers who helped make this game happen and im sure im not the only 1.

    i am curious if there will be a command to allow the event to contiune onwards whenever u want it for both the last one and this one... for brown colored creatures ect: maybe have them as all colors later on as one single command? would prove usefull for colored creatures that anyone would want for singleplayer and or there own server ect: would be rather nice~! : )

    Will the rates of black pearls by death worms be increased since its the only source for them on scorched earth? The drop rate doesn't coincide with how much element you can get from the manticore boss fight.

    Yes except PC Official players have none of that. Everyone thinks PC players can simply go play unofficial, well yes they have a choice, but some prefer to only play official. I'm sure the same would be seen on console if console got mods you'd still have people that would never play unofficial even if there are mods.

    You can't compare Mods to exclusives!

    Yes, you can compare mods to exclusives, because it's THOUSANDS OF THINGS THAT CONSOLE PLAYERS HAVE NO ACCESS TO. PC can have any of the hundreds of mods when they want, and if they CHOOSE not to, then that's on them. Console players DON'T have that choice. So yes, you can compare them.

    After being without internet for the past 2 and a half years and being unable to play ARK I am so excited to be able to start playing again right before the release of what i feel will be an amazing map!

    i do agree pc players do have more freedom but (only) cause of  mods..... while console is stuck with what conesole has literaly the console only has scorched earth the island and abberation.... as far as maps/gameplay/creatures ect: and inless u beat all bosses on the island and tek cave u dont have the center or ragnarok... i am glad there is a insentive now to have to beat the tek cave to unlock new maps but console rlly needs a map other then the island.... that u can just play on if u want without haveing to unlock it the center was fine.... as it was and now switched to a unlockable?.... i didn't agree with wildcard about it since i did play on the center and it was fun... and it will be awhile before i can get the courage enough to even attempt the tek cave i ain't worry about the dinos i am more worried about the boss itself.... but this is just me this is how i feel and heck its not all bad but it ain't all good etheir that comes with the terrortory with every idea and choice one makes. : /

    Actually they do.

     - Electric Storm only affects tek weapons, tek turrets, tek saddles, and tek shield generators

    Tek generators are unaffected, only the ones in that list are affected.

    Well my Tek generators are going down during any storm that hits my base location. Causing my tribe to loose at least 1000 element so far on the cloning chamber. So that's invalid.

    It's not invalid.

    I'm going to make an assumption based on your post history that you are playing on Xbox right? The recent changes on PC won't have come to console yet.

    Nice nice.... You destroyed the island forever and it'll never be the same. Mecha dinos spawning everywhere forever? Had you lost your mind? I would even understand event but forever?  You even making sick players who play on the island only with this tek crap. God I wish we had ever game like ARK but without this fantasy sci-fi crap... 

    I agree I would understand if the tek dinos lasted until extinction but forever?? that doesn't sound good for the fan base

    I suppose Tek Stegos will benefit pvp.
    Not sure how they will come in handy for PVE.

    They look amazing though i must say that.
    Make em harvest a lot more berries lol , so it has a purpose :P

    On another note, that s+ integration would be nice to have before Extinction.
    And when are resource spawns like metal and beaver dams gonna be unbuildable?

    I personally use Stegos to soak damage from bosses, not sure about others but thats how I use them and Tek Stegos will make this way better because they get more hp. Hoped this helped. And I dont think they will do the S+ before Extinction as it has been hyped for a while now (A couple months at most) but it would be nice if they do, they might just still be working on it but I dont think it would have taken this long.

    I went around getting all 6 explorer notes as they were released on single player but when I died and respawned on my server there was no sign of either skins that I should have been given?

    any particular reason for this?

    note: When I loaded a fresh, new single player to get the boots I was spawned with all my skins except the helmet.

    Eu realmente gostei das atualizações de Earth queimadas nos últimos 2 patches.

    E também o decaimento do gerador deve ser removido. Ele não tem propósitos táticos no pvp, apenas tornando o mapa irritante.

     

    Geradores tek   não vai  desligar mais  em tempestades ? Querendo  clonar dinos mas e impossível com o gerador desligando sempre !
