    The update today adds previously missing P+ engrams to the ARK Expansions Aberration and Scorched Earth, as well as missing saddles to previously released creatures. Non-primitive items have been removed from Scorched Earth and Aberration drops, and the Hazard Suit has been added to the Advanced Workbend (in Aberration). These changes now allow for a Primitive Plus experience on both of ARK's expansion packs!

    This update didn't fix the crazy load times. Why does it take so long to load? IS there  anyway to lessen the load time?

    Please add back permanent amount of mind wipes. Also can you please make it to where when you make it to a drop everything you are carrying and the one dino you are riding can all transfer servers together? It would balance against tyrant corporations, i mean Tyrant Alphas wiping solo players or those shund, and would keep people from stop playing since they have to start from scratch over and over n over n over.

    Playing single play and cannot shoot of the backs of fliers?? Why would you take this away too. All the fun things you could do when the game first came out are taken away. This is depressing.

    With the starving fix could it be possible that taming times have changed? Often needed more narcotics than before. Or as dedcribed like in dododex.

    And Why is there no support from wildcard for sites or Apps like dododex?

    Anyone else wondering what the deal is with Extinction and Structures Plus? Know that gets asked a lot probably, but things are slowing down way too much.

    I have a question, I just got the ps4 ark and for some odd reason no dinosaurs can attack at all. I see dinosaurs chasing and attacking and no damage and I try and attack, still no damage. But if a wild dinosaur attacks my tame it hurts them, why?? Can I fix this??
