    Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch!

    In the lead-up to the release of the Lost Island, a free DLC map coming later this year, we've been engaging the community and seeing what creatures you'd like to see on the upcoming release.  During the first-ever official community vote, we saw a heated race as we narrowed down which creature would be one of the 3 new creatures that release with Lost Island.

    Although Dinopithecus emerged as the clear winner, today we may have an addition that's fairly familiar to the community and the final creature being added to Lost Island!

    Sinomacrops bondei is a friendly and curious little pterosaur. It may approach and investigate unfamiliar creatures, but Sinomacrops does spook easily. When threatened, it will unfurl its wings to reveal deimatic eyespots in an attempt to confuse or scare predators away. Still, Sinomacrops seems to be a highly intelligent creature that craves social interaction.

    While it's normally curious and friendly, Sinomacrops' adorably oversized mouth turns into a deadly weapon at the slightest sight and smell of insects. Even alone, this cute little critter can take down insects far larger than itself. Unfortunately, this means that armor made from chitinous plates is going to trigger an attack response from the otherwise sweet-hearted pterosaur.

    Taming a Sinomacrops is fairly straightforward (in theory) -- just feed them without scaring them. Once tamed, they absolutely love travelling with their humans, and prefer to cling to them whenever possible. 

    Not only are they sociable, but they're fiercely protective     once bonded. Any small creature approaching someone with a tame Sinomacrops will be met with its flashing eyespots and  piercing shriek. That’s usually enough to stun an undersized interloper.

    For such a small flier, Sinomacrops can carry surprisingly heavy loads. It can even support the weight of a fully-grown human adult, though it will struggle to gain altitude. Still, any creature companion that can double as a glider and parachute is invaluable for anyone traversing an ARK... as long as they bring plenty of snacks for their new friend.

    I dont get why it targets people who wear chitin armor when no one is going to wear it anyway because of how easy it is to level up nowadays, also megatherium doesnt do and that also goes crazy over chitin the glider part seems fun though but I hope its better than the wingsuit as that doesnt require you to carry a dino on you but idk

    Playstation still has god mode, bases being wiped out daily, 1000s of hours being trashed.  No one at wildcard will respond or say a word about it.  Just keep ignoring it, while fully aware it is still ongoing.  Disgusting.

    This is honestly a big disappointment. Why a flying squirrel pterasaur of all things. The Carchar or any big cool looking dinosaur would of been a way better ending off as the final creature.

    Oh joy the idiocy of the garbage Archy knock off that got cheated into third place by spam votes gets in?

     

    seriously Wildcard that’s not okay… people got peer pressured into that thing and now you are?? Why not give that honor to the actual second runner up…

    Instead of adding the 2nd place theropod that looked like a Giga rival, they add the 3rd place useless shoulder mount that only youtuber fans wanted.

    A glider suit with a Megatherium buff and some stun crap that only works on small creatures. Just because some youtuber got his fans to vote for it. Instead of literally any other creature in the top 10, you know, the ones that had ABSOLUTELY NO BIAS OR ADVERTISING. I always thought Sinomacrops was gonna be useless if it were added, and I wasn't wrong.

    just an archaeopteryx that is actually useful, this game really has an issue with new dinos just completely outclassing the old ones rather than updating old ones. Tlc was a step in the right direction. it looks like the little guy will be a glide suit basically.

    Looks like people dont realize this is the devs pick, of course a suggestion made by the community was going to be the same as what they picked. also id rather this than another therapod, if you all want a big scary bleeder ask for allo to be buffed. Allos have major potential but just lack the dps now that the bleed is nulled against bosses. Id rather more gimmicks than another big dino that makes the old ones worthless.

    Than we have Inostran, Livyatan, Tanystropheus, Bison, or literally anything that isn't another near useless shoulder pet only in the game because of youtuber influence.

    I am really disappointed wildcard. Seriously. The damn sinomacrops was rigged by a damn youtuber. Carcharodontosaurus should have been the third creature. Thanks a lot guys for listening to a rigged vote.
