I always find this one of the most interesting posts to read. What did you do on *ARK* today?

I for one tamed a few scorpions, filled my troughs full of berries and meat and then decided to look into the possibility of taming a high lvl bear ready for a cave run (would be my first run so it may not go well).

I also put a Ballista on the back of a one of Dinos so that might be a laugh to go on later.

Other than that, Ill be hopping on later with some friends and will put a few hrs into just socialising and doing a few little chores.

Well I won't be on ark today but I have been pretty active on the forums fighting the good fight. 

My buddy did say that one of our bases got raided on the no tame server, but luckily it wasn't our main one and we still have about 5 others so it's actually not too bad.

Was that an official server? I find that the prim+ server I play on has been quite poor recently but then Im a EU player playing on a presumably US server. It does have its bad days though and its so frustrating when you lag whilst trying to kill a Rex or Carno on a beach and end up hitting the water - 'flying through the air leaving your bird behind'.

I dont feel like duping, but in this current meta you HAVE TO DUPE to compete and that sucks =(

Let me see. I used my Therizino followed by my beaver to go out and farm wood, cutting down wood with the Therizino and transferring it to the beaver. Repeat until beaver is almost encumbered.  Then I cooked the wood in the industrial grill to make charcoal, turned all that charcoal into gunpowder for bullets. Yep that's pretty much all I did last night other than install the 2GB update.

Not a lot really, did a bit of meat and berry harvesting, transported some metal to base from my volcano forges, got a couple of levels on my recently tamed Thorny Dragon, flew my best Theri to the Icebergs to murder some penguins to get enough OP to upgrade my ghillie suit to ascendent, built some of the new S+ gizmos, had a brief half hearted fly around looking for any high level anythings, took my latest basilo out and got a few more levels into speed on it, and marked the location of a lvl 145 squid that I'll probably tame up tomorrow. Gonna have to update the server a bit later on since there's been a couple of mod updates, and I might take one of my lesser used dinos out for a bit of a joyride/murder spree afterwards.

I tackled two more caves. I was able to accomplish the one east of the Volcano with few issues other than getting my armour melted, but made it out with the artifact. The other cave was the one furthermost north. Flew to this one with my Pteranadon, landed on the edge, threw down sleeping bag and worked my way in. Killed a few bats, and then was able to get to the artifact relatively easy. I hopped down to collect it and proceeded to jump across the gap on the other side of this area and missed it brilliantly. Needless to say I died. Spawned at the sleeping bag, realized that my 2nd sleeping bag was actually on me instead of my bird. I decided to chance going back in. No armour, no sleeping bag. By the time I got the artifact, out of the cave and flying away I was literally at 30 percent health. I flew my bird as fast I as I could aiming for the north-west beaches. Just barely landed my bird before dying again, randomly respawned, ran back to my bird which took about 8-9 minutes. When I got there, and Argy was munching on my Ptera and I was able to run over jump on him and got the heck of out Dodge. Lost all my equipment back at the cave, but that is why I don't bring any of my good stuff.

Three caves down so far, and I think 5 more to go. :D

i went for a couple cave runs last night after work, Cleared the swamp cave out and maxed out one of the frogs, Got bugger all from the loot drops devo. Then Did the underwater Easy cave with a basil same deal got bugger all. My tribe mate is away until he gets internet at his new home so im not attempting any big tames etc unless it happens at the right time. Unfortunately my server seems to have fallen on hard time and went from 10-15 min always to 2 or 3 sometimes no one of an afternoon when I get home.

Kibble tamed my first male and female Thylacoleo on official pvp, M 115 and F 145. Took me eight hours of searching redwoods and killing low level Thylas. They are the only two I've found over level 100. High level thylacoleos are rare it seems. But Thyla breeding here I come!

Raised some babies, got a really weird neon mutation, traded some eggs, failed to solo tame a tapejara that kept trolling me and a dimorphodon broke some windows. I'm still hating that tapejara.

I used 600 c4 blowing up vaults littered across my server filled with tek structures from our enemies. They atleast have a funny side to them they named the server GG admin wipe with the server number on the vaults.

What you meant to say was you duped a tonne of items on alt accounts on another server then brang it all to your server 131 and left the vaults on the beach. I seen you guys attacking 813 dying with 500 stacks of C4 on your body. The Police / PPG never learn do they...

You sound exactly like PPG on reddit complaining that the enemy is doing something they are not. 

 

Please show me this evidence you have of me having 500 stacks of C4 on my body i cant wait to see it. You did say 500 stacks on your body right implying it was me. Also do it in another thread please because this will derail the thread and this thread is about what people did in ark today.

I hadn't logged in for a couple days, so I did the usual upkeep of troughs and torches and generators.  Then I took out my new Quetzal to XP it for a dozen or so levels by having it plow through pretty much anything that moved in the Redwoods (Center map, etc).  My main place is on the bottom right-ish side of the redwoods, so it's easy to do a loop all the way to the landbridge and back.  I took a swing through the little crevice cave area in the redwoods to kill some centipedes and scorpions for chitin to help some Pteranadon saddle upgrades, then looked for a Sabretooth to tame for a Mastercraft saddle I had from a loot drop from the East Volcano cave.  Found only a lvl 5 one, so I killed it and tamed a Sarco for no reason other than I'd never actually tamed a Sarco before in any of my Ark games, heh.  And hey!  It was a female, so eggs and all that too, I suppose.  Because uh, Stegos?  Anyhow, I tamed a high-level female Carno as well for no real reason, then built a small area to hold them in.

I didn't really accomplish much of forward progress, but it was a nice few hours of low key entertainment, to be sure.

Short version: I finally built and placed Industrial forge in my compact metal base on a small platoe (semi-raidable by air, but not worth the effort, no loot stockpiling).

Long Version: Ok, let's place a forge, but let's do it seamlessly and with fast unload in mind (so next to vault which is next to crafting). Oh, this vault is wrong place. let's remove it to replace a bit later. Ok, now I need to expand this base section to fit the forge, so let's demolish full 2-floored west side (with old fab and smithy). Almost there... eh, fridges are in bad place now, let's remove them too.

2 hours later after removing 2/3 of the roof and defences (not exaggerating): well, everything is in place, time to rebuild the outer wall from saved mats. A bit later: I don't have poly and crystal for new fridges? Some farming.

At least it's done now and everything can be accessed conviniently.
