    Have you met our feisty and featherweight flier, Sinomacrops?  In Community Crunch 282, we released the Sinomacrops dossier for the upcoming Lost Island free DLC map.  Although our new friend may seem to mostly have its strength in traversal, Sinomacrops brings substantial utility for players of all types. A secondary inventory is available to players whilst it is shoulder-mounted and Sinomacrops packs a significant weight reduction on the items it's carrying for you!  Who's ready to say hi to their new backpack buddy!?

    In addition to Sinomacrops, Amargasaurus and Dinopithecus will make it's way to Lost Island later this year.  Although Dinopithecus won the community vote for the Lost Island Creature Submission, we're looking forward to doing it again later this year.  What creature would you like to see added to ARK?

    Quality Of Life and Balance Patch

    We plan to release a Quality of Life and Balance pass next week on PC, and a little further down the road on console. This patch will include various QoL additions along with some important balance-changes predominantly aimed at PvP. One of the key aspects we looked at in regards to balance is the prevalence of chain-stuns/crowd control in the current PvP meta - most specifically Void Wyvern, Shadowmane, Netgun and Plant Z. We've also made balance tweaks to various creatures and items that we think will make PvP more fun and interesting.This patch also includes two newly breedable creatures!

    We do plan to make some more currently un-breedable creatures breedable in the future so stay posted if your favorite isn't included in this one!

     

    Last but not least, we're kicking this weekend off with a breeding EVO event and a look at some amazing community content!

    I'd love for the play as a Dino update for the consoles. When I first head about it I fell on love with it and it's probably one of the main reasons I bought ark

    yeh, passive tame that you have to ride a ovis for it to eat, for 150 lvl needs 15 ovis (everytime that eats a ovis whitout having a rider resets the taming progress)

    maybe gryphons, basilisk and rockdrakes? i dont think theyll make reapers breedable though. they'd have to overhaul it.

    please add a item like the magnifying glass that allows us to see the stats on gestating animal babys so we dont have to keep the unwanted animals out for mutations thank you!

     

    we also needa way to abort them. just like how the egg incubator has a way to crack the egg effectivly killing it.

    Another useless shoulder pet, you already broke the game with tek stryders, who cares about weight lol, at least the whale thing would have been fun adventure to go tame into the deep. This is what the game pve is missing, fun things to tame and breed, to go look out in the wild, and get cool colors when events are on.  Remember how fun it was when everybody was out there desperate looking for a high lv giga, mossa, tuso , rex, that was the fun part. Still today we are crazy looking around for reapers. Its big, scary , its challenging , its exiting !! Oh shoulder pets, go stand over there in the corner of the base with the yerboa and pals, they play bingo on sundays.

    I guess breed-able will be noglin (bc G2 isn't broken enough...) and griffin.
    Why these 2?
    Because the 2 most wanted / longest asked for are rock drake and reaper - so OFC it will be noglin and griffin!

    Oh yeah, and "due to popular request" some sort of pointless monkey re-hash will no doubt magically appear somewhere while they're at it.

    Fix G2? Hard. Easier to just throw fluffy toys out at streamers instead. Meh...

    Having said that - I would like to thank whoever is responsible for the most recent server patch. Honestly - thank you for this one.

    thisone atleast isnt a glide suit that will eat your chestplate, its also a backpack. I for see myself loging in and forgeting its on the ground, then when i try to glide i fall to my death, i then come back to where the sino WAS to remember i put it on follow and there ios no a giga. I go th check my tribe log to see it was eaten. sure the whale MIGHT encourage people  like me to go in the water but once. then they see the big meg pack and never return, i see my icthy dying of starvation, well that isnt happening since the whale wasnt chosen.

    I'm pretty excited about everything here.  I don't play pvp at all......I have only been playing a few months and barely rank above beach bob status....

    Hopefully none of the fixes will hurt the way and where I play

    Wonderful news! So excited for this announcement. I, like everyone else, really, really hope one of those two new breedables are Rock Drakes.

    A bit anxious about the incoming Shadowmane nerf. I'm making my way through the story maps and when I was doing The Island/Scorched Earth last year, I kept reading about how amazing the Managarmr was as a travel mount. By the time I got to Extinction, it's a shadow of its former self and pretty much useless compared to a Lightning or Blood Wyvern.

    I really hope I don't have the same experience around Shadowmanes. I'm really looking forward to taming/breeding them.

    You don't NEED Carcharadontosaurus; you want it. It's been months now, people need to get over the fact that it's not getting added to the new map and just wait until the next vote for the next map. Continued harping on it will only result in players either spite voting for other creatures during the next competition or the devs saying to hell with it entirely.

    You mean an ultrasound machine? I'd be down for it, just make it the live bearing equivalent of the incubator so we can see stats mutations and gender.

    Pretty sure it was Drakes and Griffins. Reapers as mentioned have such a specific breeding mechanic that it's just not feasible. Drakes meanwhile are the only non breedable member of the draconis genus (seriously, wyverns, manas, AND mags all do it so they stick out like a sore thumb) in the game while players where utterly robbed of the chance for imprintable griffins in Crystal Isles and rather aggressively voiced their malcontent on the matter. WC likes to shoot themselves in the foot a lot but I don't think they're THAT tone deaf as to ignore these glaring opportunities.
