  • Introducing the Archaeopteryx!

    large.Dossier_Archaeopteryx.jpg.ae6e50e2

    Common Name: Archaeopteryx
    Species: Archaeopteryx Magnamilvum
    Time: Late Jurassic
    Diet: Carnivore
    Temperament: Fearful

    Wild

    Approximately one meter long, the Archaeopteryx Magnamilvum is a primarily tree-dwelling proto-bird. It avoids the ground as much as possible, preferring to stay in the safety of the trees, where few predators can reach it.

    I’ve not seen an Archaeopteryx outright fly yet, so it’s possible that they can’t generate enough lift to do more than glide long distances between perches.

    I’m not sure how a creature as fearful of the ground can be such a picky eater, but Archaeopteryx only seems to consume certain rare insect matter. The most likely explanation is that it tends to nest in infested trees, stripping them bare of such food sources.

    Domesticated

    While not large enough to bare the full weight of an adult human, Archaeopteryx still has great utility. Despite the creature’s inability to fly, its wings have sufficient strength to dramatically slow the rate of a person’s descent if that person holds Archaeopteryx while airborne. Taming Archaeopteryx can be somewhat troublesome, though, as it refuses to eat most common food sources, and glides to prospective safety at the first sign of any interloper.

    Cool, but here's my thing, though: Does this have any advantage over Parachutes? They don't require much in the way of resources when compared to a creature that you're going to spend time, narcotics and kibble or Bug Meat on and your hands are left free, meaning you can defend yourself with your bow or gun or whatever. But both hands are grasping the Arch's legs here, so I'm guessing there's no means of protection outside of the Arch itself... which doesn't sound too geared for fights. The only positive I see is that it saves you from having to keep making 'chutes. Maybe it's faster, too? Diversity's never a bad thing, though.

    anybody know when the next patch for xbox 1 is coming out?

    Jesse said on his twitter that patches will probably be out two weeks after a PC patch. Most likely there might be one either early next week, or the week after that.

    Ooh, I'm so excited to go and find this little fella - looking forward to seeing if it actually perches in trees, something the other dinos don't do

    Anything else besides a new dino?

     

    Dont get me wrong, i love new dinos. But there's bugs out the wazoo,and a lot of lag going on. Would be nice to be able to play without lagging, and be able to have more options in the settings, just saying.

    Is this for PC only?

    I'm pretty sure all introduced dinos will make it to Xbox One. We just have a bit of delay because Microsoft needs to approve every update.

    Can you please do a better job of separating the information on the website?  Like specifically note what is coming to the PC, XB1, or the combination of both?  Because you talked about the Procoptodon and said "The ARK is getting a unique new denizen today: the hip hopping Procoptodon, essentially a gigantic prehistoric Kangaroo." However, XB1 users did not get it "today" like the article says it was supposed to release.  All it takes is in the title of the article add [PC] or [XBOX] so everyone knows what system you are talking about.  9/10 the comments always asked "is this PC only?"  If you have it releasing on both PC & Xbox you then just leave the bracketed information out, letting everyone know it is for all platforms.

    I think that if they were to add a carcharodontosaurus that would be great.  Its just a slightly smaller version of the giganotosaurus.

    Not that i dont like this.  This is great.

    I think we should be more upset about the fact that The PC version gets updates like every two days while Xbox users get updates every two weeks.... But you are correct about this issue I do think it would clear up a lot about what is coming out to whom if they add specific titles.
