So what did you do in ARK today?

I'm not going to be able to do a damn thing today in Ark because I just blue screen now ever since the PS4 update.  Impossible to even log in.  This company sucks and I doubt they will care enough to fix it.  Most incompetent poop I have ever seen in my life.

Because you're having issues with the game means the company sucks? Is there some kind of logic here?

Logged in and headed to the swamp on the Theri, straight away ran into a 150 female Paracer! Finally my incessant murdering of all the things in the swamps everyday seems to be paying off and I'm getting some high levels, unfortunately not in what I want, I really need a better Baryonyx, but I'm not one to look a give horse rhino elephant thing in the mouth. Managed to get the big girl wedged into some rocks and took her down, pretty easy stuff, I do love the new shocking tranq darts and my Ascendant Longneck. Spent the time waiting for her to tame up strolling around killing things and making sure nothing got close to her since I forgot to grab any spiked walls, then got her home and headed back out. Unfortunately that was to be my only luck for a while. Although there were a few 100+ things around, nothing better than anything I already have, so decided to head into the Redwoods and search for high level Terrorbirds or Thylas. That was a bust, only saw one single level 5 Thyla, and accidentally killed the only two high level Terrorbirds I saw since they were in the middle of fluffy scrums, both 145's which would have done nicely. Ummed and ahhed for a bit over a 150 female Stego, but I already have a breeding pair of 150's, don't really need to clutter the base with additionals really. Then as I was leaving the woods I spotted a lvl 100 Equus, not only that but it was actually calm and being unmolested, which is a rarity! Normally I only see the bloody things just as they're getting eaten, or they're too low level to bother with so I kill them off, so a 3 figure in a decent area wasn't to be sniffed at. Unfortunately though, no Troodon kibble or Carrots on me, so I did something I don't normally do. I have the Awesome Teleporters mod, and I have it enabled to teleport wild dinos. It's something I very rarely take advantage of, but on this occasion I thought bugger it. Got the gee-gee stuck on my Theri, and teleported us all straight to the top floor of my base. Let him run around for a bit whilst I crafted up the the kibble, then donned the ghillie and jumped on his back.

you just trolling or what?  Yes, the logic is many issues with the game and now game-breaking bug causing me not to be able to log in = company sucks.  Yes, that's the logic dummy.

Now I'm confused! I'm gonna look up what logic really means!

Meh... I wrote a long post about today but then I somehow deleted it, so I'll just leave this screenshot of the two mutated terror birds I got today. The blue one got all the good stats I have and a useless mutation in food. The...very colourful one got a mutation in melee which is great if it wasn't for that colour. :P

I also had a run in with microraptors and terror birds at the start of the day. It ended with me losing over half my health to this unholy alliance and my terror bird ending up as my saviour. I'm having great fun running to and from my friends' bases by the red obelisk from mine at the Hidden Lake, except when microraptors in collaboration with terror birds happen that is. *grumbles*

The day ended on a high note with me finally getting a white jerboa, so it was a good day. :)

Unfortunately I have no adventures to share today. Our server appears to be having some connection difficulties that prevented me from logging in.

However, I did finally get around to fixing my volume issues (I think), in case I decide to start recording again. I did discover at some point my SP game save had corrupted, forcing me to wipe it. Oh well. It wasn't anything important, just a test run for a new YT season I was contemplating. I was only going on it to test my mic/game volume level balance. Ark for some reason is insanely loud whenever I record, no matter how I try to adjust the volume. I think I might finally have a handle on it though, so I may someday supplement stories with video adventures. :)

I had a good night. The wife was out with my child so I logged on early. 

My tribe had inherited a new 230 Spino last night so for the 3 of us who all play the most, we can run around on 230+ Spinos which is fairly decent.

The previous night when I was asleep, Hank decided to breed the bears again for some guys in another tribe as a thankyou for letting us claim a Theri as we hadn't got one yet. They were waiting at the base when 'pop' a baby blue Bear came out. They claimed it and took it back to their base. Oh well, maybe we will get a mutation next time - still waiting patiently.

Our 4 bears were all bred out so we gave them a rest and decided to see what out black sabre and orange stripey sabre came out as. I didnt know there pre-tame levels as we claimed them both but they wouldnt be very high I can assure you as they are 230 and 140 now. We waited to see if we had any luck and after waiting patiently - TWINS! Just like we had with our first bred bears, we had a pair of twins, no mutations and we orange/black stripes but they were sooo cute. Melee stats were 240% so I think that we might keep them actually. This weekend I think we will go and try and tame a 140-150 and see if we can get some good stats to breed. 

TM popped on again just as I was logging off (unless I play past midnight I dont get to play with him much through the week) He told me he bred his 150 monkeys last night - he does this wind me up, spending hrs taming his stupid monkey army. His little Mojo monkey currently has 600 melee - yes, 600% melee. Worthless I know!

Weve decided that this weekend we will probably try for a third cave that we havent done yet - he called it the Ice Cave and I think its in Jungles north - wish us luck! We also need a high lvl, decent stat male Spino as our 3 are all females. So Spino/Cat taming here we come.

So, the evening went well, weve a pair of new cats and tonight I think we might be able to breed the bears again hoping for a colour mutation.

Ill keep you updated!

Nothing interesting happened last night, just the usual staying up until tomorrow not paying attention.  Made a bunch of dodo kibble, and dilo kibble, as I was out of the former and low on the latter. Made some argy and ankylo as well.  That ran me out of jerky, so now I need to make more AA dehydrators to up my production.  I have thousands of pounds of cooked meat anyway.

Changed out male monkeys early, neutered the junk one and threw him out in the yard.  Got a 61 so far, along with several high 50s.  Looking better, but still junk.  A junk ptera I'm keeping in the yard just in case I want the colors glitched into a rock, so I had to deal with that.  Then I finally set about straightening up lights.  Still got 5 more out in the barn to do, but that will require me to use the fly command, and they're not bothering me too much.

Game got to really lagging, and textures weren't loading in fully a little bit in.  So, I went to the yard, whistled to follow, with the tame group set this time, and mass murdered monkeys.  All I left was a 30 and 36.  As I was shooting, my rex was munching.  Got almost 1k meat out of it, so threw that in the grill to make jerky with.  That helped, but the pteras are next on the chopping block.  Time to downsize.

Now, I had been thinking about my weapon loadout.  I don't like automatic weapons, mainly because of the cost of ammo, and the rate they go through it.  But, I put the crossbow up, and pulled out the ascendant AR I brought back from SE.  Made up 700 rounds of ammo, and it even has a flashlight attachment.  We'll see.  I predict that I'll be back to the crossbow within the week.  That 700 rounds used up all my gunpowder, and I must go on a metal run soon.  I need cementing paste again as well.

My reasoning is, I can run the south cave solo with just my six gun, but I'm going to hit some of the others, and I feel I may need the firepower.  I'll probably switch something out for the crossbow back and make some grappling hooks as well.

Well, now I've made a plan, so I know what I'm probably not going to get done.

Ill try to bare with you because you are from Boston lol. Jkjk. Seriously, don't hate on a game company when YOU failed to read a disclaimer entailing the game is BROKEN, IN ALPHA, RELEASED A FEW MONTHS INTO DEVELOPMENT, AND HAS PERFORMANCE ISSUES. Its up to you to package your issues in a useful way on the forums to get the devs to listen. They dont want to help anyone that bashes them. Especially when that person themself couldnt code even a game like pong.

Last night (I've been busy so far today and haven't been on), I helped my friend tame an Equus :) Pretty hilarious because he didn't realize it would want feeding as quick as it did, so it bucked him and he spent the next five minutes chasing it around our compound. Finally got on the darn thing, and it bolts straight for the sea.

After that, we ran around on our horses and kicked some Raptors in the face.

Finally, we hopped on our Mosa and Manta and went looking for Leedsichthys

It was a good day for breeding terror birds today apparently. I decided to put the ankys on hold again, but actually followed through this time. I want to finish the terror birds as they're much easier to breed before filling my base with ankys.

The first batch of eggs didn't yield much of a result, but with the second I started to get some birds with all the stats AND colours I'm after. This meant I could kill off some of the previous breeders which felt really great (I still have almost 30 birds though xD ). I also got the same mutation in weight twice, but the first time the bird got a purple beak and legs and as she was white/light grey, she looked kind of ill. Luckily, the second bird I got the same mutation on also had a colour I've been working on, so I immediately replaced the purple thing. I also managed to get the mutated melee on a male without the banana beak - thrilled about this.

The first thing I did though was breeding the colourful couple from yesterday. I told my friends that if I got a bird with both of their colours, I would have a Swedish bird. I was promptly told to do just that and so I did. And I got the colours... Here she is, the Swedish bird named "Heja Sverige" (something like "Go Sweden"):
R7RxVNu.jpg
She's quite... eye catching, I'll give her that. I only did it because I could, but I don't really want to keep her so my friend offered to take her because she thinks the bird looks hilarious. Now I need a red mutation so I can get a Danish bird too, as we're a bunch of Swedes and Danes playing on our server. xD 

My friend (this is one of the friends who's living close to the red obi and that's adopting the Swedish bird) could play today, so I went to her base on my terror bird, Slate, to show off my white jerboa . I had planned to jump off a hill behind her base and land on her rooftop, but I misjudged and slammed into the wall on her house instead. Only because I was trying to show off, it's so typical.
On the way back to my base, I got knocked off by a microraptor again as I ran into a tree stump while trying to get away from it... Luckily, this was a lone microraptor without any nasty backup, so Slate made short work of it while I stood there being stunned. I think I will grow to really dislike these little pests as I ride around on my birds more, but they won't make me give up on the terror birds! They're just too much fun!

My friend came over later to check out all the birds and I've now gotten an order of three birds from her; one blue and white (she loved that colour), a copy of the female I borrowed but with better stats, and another variant of the same better female. I guess I have my work cut out for me, as I'm also trying to get a completely white/light grey bird, a black bird, two combinations of black and white, and red-brown and white also in two combinations. This plus get the mutated stats bred in properly.

Ah, well. I'm several steps closer to getting the best birds I can get with the stats I have and with the colours I want, and I look forward to tomorrow when I can start breeding all these new ones.

 

I just realized three of them are adults now... *glances at clock*
It's not horribly late... yet... *runs off to breed more terror birds*

Well, last night I didn't play on my server...

I started recording season 2 on my single player instead. I just kinda felt like it. S1 was an herbivore tame only challenge run with the goal of defeating an Alpha Rex. S2 is what I'm calling "100 Days in the North", basically I built a small supply depot, then created a new character and spawned in the snow. The goal for this season is to spend 100 game days completely within the snow biome. Definitely not an easy thing; it is literally not possible for a freshly spawned character to survive in the cold, which is why I had to add an RP element of finding an abandoned supply cache with some fur armor in it.

I also learned some really fantastic news. Since I haven't been in SP for a long time, I decided to bite the bullet and check the obelisk terminal. So waaaaay back almost a year ago now, when we learned we were wiping I went ahead and uploaded a few very select animals in the hopes of at least preserving something of their legacy. Because I do these challenge runs and wipe my SP on a regular basis, I never downloaded them and with the changes to how uploads and downloads work I assumed they were all long gone.

Turns out they're all still there. That means I still have Smaug, my absolute favorite spino. He's my perfect 120 tamed dossier spino (before the difficulty increase obviously) who's gone head to head with a lv. 100 Alpha Rex, granted this was before the great HP/melee nerf. But still a pretty impressive thing. This makes me incredibly happy, even crippled by the nerf bat he's still my beautiful world destroying spino.

Also worth noting is I preserved my very first color morph project, the "Arkannion Blue" spino, which I was almost done with. I also still have Mocha, the very first giga ever tamed on our server, and Seleene, my old tribe partner's perfect tamed albino rex, completely white including the spine. He asked me to take the latter, for the record. That was a very happy Ark night for me.

This is Smaug:

That does look cool. Spino's are my favorite dinosaurs. Shame they do not get used very often in raids.
