  • Community Crunch 371: Introducing Gigantoraptor!

    welcome_crunch2023-1.png

    Meet the queen of helicopter parenting! She's the mother hen of the prehistoric world, fiercely protecting her little ones with a love that's larger than life. We can't wait to see the community creature vote winner, Gigantoraptor, roaming the vast expanse of Ragnarok!
     

    Speaking of new creatures, there are still a few days left to submit your vote for the next addition to Aberration!

    Species: Gigantoraptor nutritor
    Time: Late Cretaceous
    Diet: Omnivore
    Temperament: Territorial

    Unless you’re planning to raid its nest, you shouldn’t let this creature’s imposing size worry you. Gigantoraptor may be fiercely protective of its brood, but it’s much more of a caregiver than a fighter.

    Don’t get me wrong -- this theropod will use its sharp claws and surprising speed to defend its young when threatened. But Gigantoraptor has a soft heart for young ones -- it’ll even take in the orphaned babies of rival species.
     

    domesticated_green.png

    Now for the bad news: to my knowledge, no one’s been able to figure out how to tame an adult Gigantoraptor – its unique disposition seems resistant to behavioral conditioning. However, Survivors bolder than me were able to sneak into nests to win the trust of their young, and they claim that reward is well worth the risk.

    Once matured to adulthood, your tamed Gigantoraptor will happily look after any of your tribe’s young creatures, nurturing them and teaching them how to fight. It can even use its call to help you find orphaned baby animals out in the wild. If you bring those orphans home, then your Gigantoraptor will happily add them to its brood.

    Gigantoraptor forms an inseparable bond with its young charges. Bring them into a fight together and they will defend each other, and your tribe, far more effectively than when apart.

    Pollo d'allevamento haha, una creatura per i giocatori che non possono imprimere il 100%. Finora non è stato necessario e credo che faccia ancora male alle arche più di quanto aiuti. Riempiranno la carne in Maerwig, mettono il pollo barbuto e aspetteranno finché i dinosauri non saranno pronti ahah. Dov'è il divertimento di fare imprinting e allevamento? E per PvP , può rivelarsi un dinosauro ingombrante e fastidioso. ( Il PvP non è il mio stile, è solo un'ipotesi) Ecco perché ho preso il PVE in modo da poter allevare questi dinosauri e non usare i booster. Il gioco perde di significato per me a questo punto con un pollo come quello.

    if you like wasting a lot of time to raise a creature just having to press a button you can always not use it, as a single player pvp I find it very comfortable

    ok, ma non hanno davvero approfondito cosa sia quel qol. quello che sappiamo è ciò che stiamo perdendo da loro, esclusi i dinosauri e la tecnologia delle mappe non disponibili dal primo giorno. Quindi, a meno che non spingano maewings, incubatrici, crios, netguns, uccelli alimentati a gas e una sfilza di altri fattori o aggiungano strutture che replicano le loro funzioni, siamo a un netto negativo su qol.

    ORA. se vogliono dare un'occhiata ad altri giochi di sopravvivenza e darci saccheggi e supporto linguistici migliori/più rapidi, costruire skin/rendere le strutture vanilla facili da pinzare skin tramite mod e non dover aggiungere altro nel menu di costruzione, aggiungere più funzionalità di accessibilità per varie funzionalità di cecità e daltonismo, aggiungere più impostazioni di tasti di scelta rapida per le impostazioni gamma, farci fare strane funzioni elettriche industriali/automatiche senza che sia bloccato dietro tek, rendere la costruzione meno dolorosa/possono costruire più tessere contemporaneamente. In breve, guarda quegli altri giochi di sopravvivenza e le loro caratteristiche di qualità della vita e rubali a titolo definitivo ... fantastico! sarò davvero felice!

    Ma devono DIRCI che lo stanno facendo e MOSTRARE che ci stanno lavorando.

    ad esempio, non crederò che stiano lavorando a qualcosa finché non vedrò schermate di paesaggi di gioco con le cose posizionate sulla mappa. mostrami quella buona acqua nuova, mostrami quell'illuminazione migliore, mostrami tutto questo lavoro che presumibilmente hanno fatto sull'isola. Se questa cosa è destinata a cadere tra qualche mese, dovrebbero almeno avere ALCUNE delle funzionalità di base integrate e funzionanti. Sai cosa mi fa avere meno fiducia? mostrando buoni rendering di risorse che sono state appena ampliate e non nell'ambiente. Perché quella è l'ultima parte su cui lavori, e mostrarci davanti a noi è come far penzolare le chiavi davanti a un bambino.

    Come ho capito, l'isola potrebbe essere DAVVERO DIFFICILE con l'illuminazione in alcuni punti, o parte della fisica potrebbe andare di traverso, la cosa migliore che possono fare è tirare uno studio macchiato di caffè e DIRCI dove sono stati i problemi. In questo momento stanno facendo quello che facevo io nei tempi antichi in cui ero adolescente e un gruppo di persone si aspettava qualcosa da me, ma non potevo ammettere che ero fuori di testa. Direi solo "OH UM. È. ECCO UNA COSA IN CORSO, AMERAI IL RESTO QUANDO È PRONTO? QUANDO? OH.... PRESTO."

     

    Tuttavia non ho mai obbligato nessuno a impegnarsi nei miei errori schiaffeggiando i loro vecchi progetti dalle loro mani e chiedendo loro di usare la nuova versione. Oh scusa, schiaffeggia i vecchi progetti dalle loro mani e giuro che farei delle foto in modo che possano ricreare di nuovo quei progetti a casa. possibilmente. se mai ho capito come far funzionare la fotocamera. Guarda qui, queste chiavi non sono proprio lucide?

    it is true until they confirm the changes or the new mechanics the proposed creatures will be based on the mechanics of ASE

    Welcome to the way 70% of people here feel for some months now. Most people I know play on pc so they are just waiting to grab the save files and say goodbye to all this... Yes it's sad for players that supported it for years and it's disrespectful that some people still buy it without a warning or clue of what is going to happen.

    It’s “disrespectful” that some people will buy it? 
     

    Bruh, the finances of other people shouldn’t concern you. Blame modern gaming for not putting out a single title worth playing since Elden Ring. Blame yourself for not having more disposable income.

    Think you misread it: Many people that recently bought ARK were not aware that it is nearing it's end. Flexing your disposable income, go ahead, throw away your money as you want but please don't defend misleading marketing.
    It is not disrespectfull to show your support by buying something, it's disrespectfull to sell something without warning your customers about the very short lifespan of the product.

    (And in my very personal opinion people that think they have disposable money are just plain stupid. All my money has a purpose and my entertainment is certainly not disposable.)

    ARK isn't nearing its end. No one really plays official so most of the community is uneffected

    Have idea:

    - Gigantoraptor has no territorial range of its stolen eggs/babies - it can chase you even when you teleport to base or hide in second corner of map
    - Gigantoraptor is semi flyer - rock drake style climbing and gliding
    - Gigantoraptor attacks you when you hath its baby

    All aggro is independent on player/tribe. Just egg and its hatchlings.

    Ultimate egg guardian that will chase you until its death or death OR death of hatchling. I loved the long distant chase in Valguero when wyverns came to me to the center of map.

    The official ARK SE is nearing it's end. Period.
    The statement "no one plays official" is completely irrelevant in this discussion since that might be true for you and your friends but it is still not advertised to new buyers that you need to find acces to private servers.

    You are completely right to say there are ways to keep playing but there is no need to pretend marketing is honest and clear.

    I have a couple mod/qol suggestions:

    1. Carts and wagons- a medium (or 2 small) creature could pull a cart, a large (or 2 medium) creature could pull a wagon. A cart could be a 1x1 platform, a wagon would be 2x2.

    2. Inter variant breeding- a 'normal' with an abb, r type, even tek, of the same creature should be breedable and have pack and mate boosts.

    3. Have breeding and wandering as separate settings.  Just because I put my dino in the yard on wander, I don't want it breeding with everything else in the yard.

    4. Death beacons for tames, and show tribemates' beacons. Could be different color than your beacons. Also, show my death X on my map, or give me a 'death compass' similar to what is Ark Mobile. An arrow in the corner of the screen, with the distance to your body.

    Thanks for listening. (If anyone is listening)

    Sure a new creature which could have been made in ASE too ..... but due to money grabs / remake that they 'hope' will work with new babies now its a ASA thing BUT seriously I think the people want MORE substance than this in fact I am dam sure we all want more than this and you know it too.

    The most important change you could make in this game would be allowing the Anky and Doed to swing while being carried until they are overencumbered. This is to me, the biggest nerf to solo players. Flying with two people is more than 2x effective and it’s unbalanced.
