    Mysterious Mysteries: Introducing ????

    How perplexing, who can guess what this might be?

     

    Ongoing Enforcement

    In an effort to maintain a healthy and fair playing environment, we will be conducting an enforcement initiative tomorrow, Tuesday December 10.  A number of servers will be unavailable during this enforcement window.  A list of affected servers will be announced and pinned in the forums prior to the enforcement window.

    Enforcement Tips

    • Refresh yourself on the Code of Conduct
    • Report any activity that is in violation of the Code of Conduct
    • Be careful who you invite into your tribe, only invite those you trust.  If you’re concerned someone in your tribe is in violation or has been in violation of the Code of Conduct, please submit a ticket with any questions you may have.

     

     

    Winter Wonderland 4

    Next week Winter Wonderland is returning with brand new skins, items, and more!  Our holiday helper, Raptor Claus will be roaming around dropping gifts off to survivors with Gacha Claus who will happily exchange treats for gifts.  In addition to holiday decorations and items from the past, we are excited to introduce a new event item for all our ARK collectors.  Stay tuned for event details!  Be sure to send us all your holiday-themed pictures, videos, and artwork here on survivetheark.com or on Twitter as we'd love to see them!

    Primitive+

    The team is still ironing out issues with Primitive+.  We hope to have more information for our Primitive+ survivors soon

    Quality of Life Improvements

    We realize there are many quality of life improvements you'd like to see added to the game.  While we've introduced some of these quality of life changes lately, we realize there's more you'd like to see.  Continue to share your suggestions across our social media channels!  We'll be collecting information and updating our Quality of Life Catalog with any progress we make.

    During the enforcement period, am I able to go to another server to get wyvern milk and come back to my home server? Or is it locked until the period ends? Still new.

    With all of the other connection and lockout issues going on at the moment. 

    I wouldn't go anywhere for a bit.

    Has nothing to do with any kind of realistic (in this game lol?) weight values.

    It's to mitigate meshing.

    Could you explain what kind of relationship lays between meshing and drastically increasing drag weight of four in-game creatures?

    Think about what each of those dinos shares in common and you shall have your answer.

    As far as I know, Gallimimus can't grab players like Proco (pouch) or Kapro / Megalo (jaws).

    If it really is related to meshing, then it's another detour to not fix it properly by Wildcard... Another great example? Chairs. Man, chairs are totally helping with meshing! So instead of trying to fix it, WC just removed chairs from the game. Climbing picks? Oh boy, people use them to go undermesh! Let's just instantly kill all players that unwittingly found a hole in the texture. Easy, right?

    If you can raid people from undermesh by carrying kangaroo with quetz, just make kangaroo heavier than mammoth. Poof! Problem solved!

    I believe this to be a correct statement.

    Pachyrhino can also be equipped with multi-person saddle and it weighs 200 units.

    Roll rat - able to carry three people. Drag weight: 245.

    Tapejara - another three-seater. Drag weight: 149.

     

    Why Galli then? That's just inconsistent. That's why I'm so angry. WC seems to do just random stuff to pretend they're doing something. Good, bad, whatevs. Still something.

    Nothing we have seen as pertaining to genesis and these mysterious mysteries was stated to be of part 1 or of part 2, so it IS a mystery as to when they are coming to the game. January 2020 or December 2020 is the true mystery.

    I'm interested to find out how we'll transverse from the lunar biome ( biome - a portion of a map - not A map exclusively).

    Which seems to suggest genesis will have a huge sky box hence why the Astrocedus is able to do warp speed. Which would thus also suggest getting to the lunar biome is going to be just as difficult as being there.

    Do you have the "Will Power" to climb such altitude fellow Ark-ians

    Great game, terrible developers in regard to server stability and gameplay. I dont understand why new content keeps coming out.  I really dont.

    "Lock manas to extinction"  <---- This one right here, if I had to pick one thing out of that list it would be this one.  Would love to see variety again. 

    In the list I assume "archived" basically means you're aware of the request and not doing it, at least not at this time.

    I wonder what it is going to look like! I hope this map is the best yet! :D honestly it has to compete with Ragnarok or Extinction.

    I hope they makes the maps snowy for Winter Wonderland like back in 2016. It gave the event a more christmas vibes and we need this.

    Can't carry a Kangaroo/Procoptodon

    Are we kidding, Wild Card. You patch the game to stop us from carrying a Gallimimus or Procoptodon? A Queztal can carry a Mammoth but it can now not carry a small Kangaroo. Please explain the logic for all of us. I love the game but REALLY. A Mammoth but not an annoying Gallimimus.

     

    Modified Drag weight of creatures to prevent carry by Quetz and Crab: 

    •     Galli 
    •     Kapro
    •     Megalosaurus
    •     Procoptodon
    •
