    You really overestimate that stinky monkey.
    Also the best Creature by far is the Amargasaurus

    I think the monkey is the strongest of the 3. the sino is definatly the one that wins most useful, but the dinopithicus wins strongest. my main complaint about the monkey is on console (well atleast ps4) it refueses to load its texture fully (you know when u get the blocky texture) so far the dinopithicus looks like a monkey body with the face of somthing from starwars( not quite like jarjar binks but close enough to the point im using him as an axample of what im getting). like seriosly ive named it lip monkey. wildcard needs to fix this.

     actually just tamed my first amarag, i expected more from the fire tho. maybe i should be trying it on rexes but getting damage markers that say 0 on a turtle is kinda disapointing considering how easy it is to get a point blank shot on the amarag while its trying to kill a dimorph. also who decided this thing eats dimorphs? dimorphs are nuetral, the amarag is suposed to hunt agressive carnivores. (can confirm, innocent  megatherium is carnivore, amarag tested and approved lol)

    overall, changes I would like are: optimise monkey. better fire spikes. faster working ice spikes the turtle dummy had to walk through like 3 ice spikes before it  STARTED freezing. I was hoping on building in the jungle temple, I knew there was no way inthe pyramid so I decided on building in the main gate, who decided you cant build in the temple, was planning on building in there but I guess im going to the red woods castle

    Lost Island is a HUGE letdown. It's obviously NOT even close to being a finished product.  smh

    Im on xbox x and it would be a problem, but I was ahead of the curve by getting an external SSD and hooking it up. Those 5400 RPM hard drives was junk when the xbox one and ps4 was first released and they have only shown their age with larger and more storage demanding games.
    If you want to fix it, get an SSD, external SSD enclosure, and then plug it into a USB port. Either that or you will need to upgrade to the next gen console where they have a SSD internally.

    Pictures of our little Ark family. Hubby (our "server god") , myself (our "beast queen"), and our infant daughter (a tamer in-training 😜 ) with our "I believe in Raptor Claus" shirts and her light up dino. ;)
