ARK Digest Q&A!

Recommended Posts

  • Could we get very rare resource drops that are worth say 10x more than the normal resources... Example -- Rare Metal Ore - That can be smelted down to make Fine Grade Metal Ingots...  This kind of rare resources and others like Fine Wood, Rare Pearls, Quality Stone ect, would open up a new economy for trade and also allow for the building of High End Mastercraft Gear which can't fit in the slots provided in crafting stations.(being 10x more valuable, interchangeable with normal resources and stacks the same as the average like resources) -- Rare resources could also open up the possibility of being able to craft slightly better quality gear the more "quality resources" used to make said item.

 

  • Could you disable dinos from pooping while the battle music is playing and also while they are sprinting please? -- Inconvenient timed poops while in the heat of battle costs lives and saves us from rage quits!

 

  • Will we see the ability to mount every kind of creature "head" onto the wall trophy? -- Would add to the immersion and motivation for hunters who wish to get every animal mounted on their wall !

 

  • Will we get some kind of hi-tech device that can project a holographic head of any survivor when we insert an implant chip into it?

 

  • Could we have the ability to make reflective metallic paints based on all the current colours by adding an ingredient to the paint itself ?

 

  • Can we get rounded behemoth pillars for use with spiral stairs and ceiling structures, also be able to build tree platforms on them?

 

  • Will you be considering fully random locations for above ground beacon drops each time they drop and change the collision detection so they don't go through building structures?

 

  • I'd love to see wild herbivores actually eat and consume bushes and trees when they are hungry. Is this possible? - would really add to the immersion combined with herds...

 

  • Could we have hanger doors, trap doors, flare guns and electric lights activate when linked to a trip wire?  - flares and lights to see intruders at night, hanger doors open to release aggressive creatures etc...

 

  • Can we have tame formation settings so that instead of following from behind the tames can be in front of us or to the sides?

 

  • Can we have a tech tier device that allows us to remote/mind control a tamed dino?   This would be a good addition to go along side the primal survival addition when it finally comes!

 

  • Could we get some issues with rafts / platforms fixed?
  • Sleeping friends on rafts can be left behind in the ocean.  
  • Jumping on a raft while it's moving and you fly away rather than land on the same spot.
  • Destroyed items that turn into bags while raft is moving need to stay on the boat and not float in the air in the middle of the ocean.
  • Dinos on the raft or other platforms need their collision detection disabled or something so that they don't get pushed completely off (even in an enclosed space) when you run over a rock or tree.

According to the explorer notes, the characters in the story could understand each other through the use of the arm implant. 

So why is it that we cannot understand their notes through the use of the arm implant?

 

Could you implement an option to hide certain things in the tribe log? We run a private server and one tribe member does a lot of building and all we ever see in the tribe log is him demolishing things. It would be nice to hide what was demolish so we can see what else is happening in the log

Hey. Many people, including myself, see ark as the reincarnation of turok. We would love to see you guys team up with the current owners of turok and make a dlc for it. Think of the possibilities. Rocket launcher saddles for anklyos, war quetzals,a new playable race of lizard men, lemurs. The modding community isn't working on this at the moment so please make this a thing.

With the Giga getting a nerf again, and Dev's on record as saying it is not what it was originally intended for, do you think a reduction in breeding time is needed now? 2 weeks for a Giga is a very long time, and a lot of work, especially with the major weakening of them. 

 

We hear a lot about what is coming, but can you tell us some things that have been planned but now put on the shelf?

 

How much of a 'balance' issue do you think introducing the new tek tier will cause? 

 

Will you ever allow 'Tribe' imprinting on official servers, meaning any member of the tribe can do the imprint?  This would be good for Dino's that take a lot longer than most such as Quetz's and Giga's making it a full tribe effort rather than a solo effort. 

 

Is there any possibility of wild dinos dropping fertilized eggs?

Since we can hold down the attack buttons for melee weapons could we hold down the attack buttons whilst mounted as it has no difference apart from preference and does not allow any advantages in pvp it would be much appreciated as long play sessions farming for breeding can be a arduous

With the statement that the ocean will be redone during the charity stream.

does that mean we will see unique biomes such as kelp forests and reefs?

 

when the ai upgrade comes around will creatures begin to act like animals?

smelling the air to detect players rather than relying on An Aggro range. Herbivores drinking out of water sources and moving around in herds etc

I have a question concerning damage display. Would it be possible to only show the person who is dealing the damage how much damage they've dealt??? I was playing on a server yesterday and while I was fighting a dino in the forest a random guy on a ptera saw the floating numbers and killed me. It is useful to see how much damage you're doing but I don't think it's useful for others to see as well.

With cross ark transfers people across many servers have blocked loot crates and obelisks to help them mitigate and defend against invasions especially offline ones, you now intend to add a personal transponder to allow transports without these in tek tier, how do you intend to help people prevent being offline raided constantly and what ideas have you come up with to help prevent this ?

In a recent digest you said you weren't going to add a hunger meter to the Carnivores, does this mean you'll be leaving other AI immersion implementations out as well or will we still see herds, packs of raptors hunting and less of the hundreds of lonely animals stomping about like they're lost? :)

Will we see an overhaul of the building system before or after launch in Spring 2017? Will this overhaul include less pieces but more function for each piece. A ceiling piece being able to be placed as a regular flat ceiling but also a sloped ceiling. The building pieces are growing in numbers and if even more are to be added(we need so much more) adding several functions to one piece would help on the engram clutter in the crafting menus.
