    Introducing Tropeognathus!

    Dossier_Tropeognathus.jpg

    Common Name: Tropeo
    Species: Tropeognathus mesembrinus
    Time: Cretaceous
    Diet: Piscivore
    Temperament: Neutral


    Wild
    Up close, Tropeognathus mesembrinus is easily recognized by the keeled crests on its snout, but with wingspans of up to twenty-seven feet, you’re sure to spot it before then. 

    These large wings are not only ideal for catching air currents over its ocean hunting grounds, but they also let Tropeognathus draft off of other flying creatures by flying behind them. While not the fastest flyer on the Isles, when combined with its remarkable stamina, this makes Tropeognathus well suited for long distance flight.

    Because it’s on the wing so much, Tropeognathus is best snared by those riding another flier. I've noticed the more clever tribespeople using chain bolas to capture them while airborne.

    Domesticated
    Once tamed, Tropeognathus has proven quite useful to the people of the Isles beyond mere transportation. For example, its toothed beak can grind down many common goods to their base components, which is a great way to recycle items and gear! Well, so long as you have a rag handy to wipe off the spit...

    That bite is punishing enough to crack armor and grind through it over time, and Tropeognathus can blow away flora and fauna alike with a gust from its wings. Air-to-air combat is where this creature really shines, though. And with the right tools, some survivors have managed to fit them with a saddle-mounted flak cannon and jet engine for maximum lethality. 

    Trust me, you haven't lived until you've ridden a jet-powered pterosaur into a dogfight. Saddle one up and see for yourself - you can be my wingman anytime!

    Yeah, so true. Ark as a game has some bugs and issues, but addictive and customizable. Official servers aren't required.

    It would be awesome at least try to tame this thing, it seems to be a very nice predator. Hope its a mix between ptera and quetzal :3

     

    I do to, and it sounds like it is, fast, big and “tanky?” We’ll see soon I guess! Can’t wait! I want to make a mod so it rapid fires like 20x faster to plow through a field of dinos... That would be fun.

    Funny how many people think it is.... Using single player is how everyone dose a showcase, and if not it’s a (non-)dedicated

    also what’s the difference between non-dedicated and dedicated except dedicated needs more software on your computer to run?

    Non-dedicated is basically sharing single player mode. The client is the server.

     

    Dedicated server is a real server.

    Yep

    I get why you would use them cus you can’t host a server, but they are way overrated and way to many people who don’t want that type of experience use them and some DO think it’s the only way to play, when you see “Join Ark” or “Host Session” it implies that you can host a server where people will come and spam and kill you, and MY COMPUTER CANT HANDEL HOSTING 100 PEOPLE! while join ark sounds like log in play on someone else’s, or even single player! Maybe they could just change the Title menus and make it more obvious, or in the tutorial think describe what each server needs to run use and does and the differences!

    I downloaded it when it was first  released in steam years a go.

    Didn't play much. So cant say if is good or not.

    I deleted it because "work in progress" walls were way too annoying.

    So that's my first hope, if is finished map then should not have work in progress walls any more. 

    Also in general i really hope that things displayed as rock or other structures are solid with right collision.

    (i lost bird with all its inventory because i forgot to command it not to hear group commands - so bird tried to follow me in cave thought entrance Argy should newer pass because bird is too big, then got stuck in cave rocks and walls and finally killed by meshing, positive, false positive, negative   or whatever Ark use  instead to make rocks solid)

    I’m hoping all the creatures stay, and maybe a new crystal resource to make stuff?

    Well they WILL finish it first, I hope, it not it’ll be the biggest bad rating thing since S.E.’s release, also they are working on meshing and stuff.

    It will be fun if we will have basic cheap to craft saddle.

    If jet saddle is only choice - very expensive to craft, expensive to repair and expensive fuel and ammo.

    Damage of cannon - did you ever tried  tek saddle and its plasma weapon and cost to use it?

    I hope that at least new dino will be good to use as grinder with better resource return.

    I hope these guys are breedable. Can't wait to tame a load, then start my breeding and mutating. 

    Don't even care about Crystal Isles, I just want new dinos 😂
