Well I logged in and lagged out for about 5 minutes, then rubber-banded all over the place so I quit and went to work where it's less stressful.

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

PS4 - Private Server - Ragnarok   No new color mutations on the ravagers last night, so all those babies got killed. I then was flying around, and I saw a whole group of high level even

Alpha Tek Cave Prep!

Started off on The Center, grabbed the nice chainsaw, some blueprints for flak, gear, shotgun, rex and theri saddle bps and other various things including eggs and hopped to The Island.

Raised and imprinted 2x rexs, 2x theri and a Daedon. Gathered about 50k hide, did a few metal runs and made 2 of each Rex and Theriz saddles, among a flak set, 250 med brews, 500 shotgun shells and even made a bunch of soups and kibble for imprinting.

Raising another 2 rexs now, trying to level up a bunch between Lystro / Hide runs. @AngrySaltire I pre incubated 8 giga eggs and some rex eggs to level some rexs today. Along with filling the grinder mats (stone wood) so we can quickly level up our newer tames for cave.

Going to do some imprints and maybe another couple hide runs for Saltire's saddles then go to bed

Ah cool thanks. Just let me know what would be useful for me to do tonight. I guess just more metal and hide farming ?

You probably need more hide for saddles, and we need to powerlevel some dinos!

Having spent a few weeks establishing a beach base, taming some Parasaurs, housing a half dozen Dodo's for a Dodo kibble recipe that i can't figure out (help would be nice) and taming Raptors then losing them i finally decided to scout a little further north to find a new location for a more permanent home. I prepared arrows and tranq arrows for my crossbow, mounted Roger my trusty steed (a lvl 132 Parasaur ) and headed out. As i passed over a rise i saw a swamp that i'd never seen before and a giant crocodile. Now i've messed with these before and knew that the best tactic was height and distance. A few arrows later i laugh at my easy victory and head down to skin my prey. As i raise my axe a giant snake suddenly appears, gives me a bite and within seconds all is black. I throw down the controller and wait to be eaten, but even though i hear the hissing and slithering it doesn't finish me off and slowly my torpor lowers and i'm up. I decide to return to Roger and flee, as i move the snake is on me again, panic sets in and i scramble away screaming Roger's name. I make it back just as the snake attacks again, i jump on Roger's back and he begins stamping, all seems to be going in my favour till Roger gets stuck on a rock, but his mighty hooves finish off the snake and plenty of hide is gathered. I begin to think about how far i have come since day 1 (currently day 16) i feel invincible. I'm stronger now, strong enough to cross this petty swamp. I climb aboard Roger and begin to wade across. A faint ripple in the water catches my eye and before i know what's going on some strange creature has leapt out of the water and dragged me from Roger's back. It is pushing me through the vile swamp water but i notice that it isn't damaging me. But i dont know where its taking me. I try punching it in the face but to no avail, i pull out my trusty crossbow and shoot it in the face, ha more hide for me, I truly believe am invincible, damn i'm good at this game. I call Roger over so that we can continue on our journey. As he's crossing i turn to choose which way to head and come face to face with 2 giant snakes with weird collars, they hiss, one pounces and it all goes dark. As they begin eating me i hear screams in the distance as Roger meets the same fate. Farewell my friend I'll miss you. Controller down, Playstation off.

I've been busy using my new Rag Canyo outpost to capture & tame Spinos. Got my first Lvl 150 today, and she's a beast. I've tamed a half dozen high level Spino's now and started surveying their stats to prep for breeding.Looks like I have a few stand out stats in HP, Melee Damage, Stamina, and Oxygen, that I can combine onto a mating pair.

Got close to 50 today. Expanded the base, made a second story, and converted the base all to wood from thatch (that grind, geez)  Have a ton of storage now and have been building up resources nicely. Up to 1200 hide, 1000+ gun powder, got metal back above 200, and just doing as much as I can in that regard. Got my first tame, a lvl 61 ptera, just for the sake of having a flier Bc I’ve run into some sticky situations on foot. Working for the saddle, still about 40 short on chitin, which is my main struggle right now.

Single Player PS4 No Engram Playthrough

 

I made it to the south zone Stonehenge. Wasn't as difficult to cross some of the open water as I thought it might be.

I laid down my 1 x 1 thatch foundation I grabbed from a drop a long the way and took stock of my inventory. Thankfully with boosted weight I wasn't hampered too much by what I had but I really need some storage. 

I went to check the area. Grabbed the explorer notes and remembered the little pond area. I went to it and heard a thrashing. Oh man. A Sarco came shooting out of the water.

I backpedaled and decided, lets try for some xp. I didn't want to waste my bow durability on it so I positioned myself by its tail and just started hitting it with my stone hatchet. If you have decent speed (I had 130 at the time) you can easily just stay in that position without getting hit. I killed the Sarco and got some arrows, spears, and some Rockwell notes for Energy Brew and Medical Brew.

I returned to my shack as night fell and noticed 3 drops fairly close so I hit them up. Wood structures. An apprentice Parasaur saddle BP. Arrows. Fires. A few slingshots. Not a bad haul but I really need some storage. 

I extended to a 2 x 1 with the wood pieces and started to look for a Parasaur now that I have a saddle/bp. 

Along the way I tamed a dodo and 5 pegos to use as temporary storage. 

Each drop is gold at this point and I started to end up with some really helpful pieces. 54 armor hide boot bp. Refining Forge BP. Wood and Thatch structures. 

I probably spent about 6 hours (not straight, yay single player pause) trying to find a decent level Parasaur but eventually found a Cyan Tek Parasaur level 132. 

Funny thing is I wanted him mostly for storage but in that time I found 4 small and 2 large storage boxes but I tamed him anyway to keep Pego's from my base area. 

I'm currently living in a 90% wood 2 x 4 and started to extend up a bit, to accommodate the large storage boxes. Currently I'm hoping to get a smithy bp soon so I can craft some Chitin Boots I found a BP of and an Asc Pike and App crossbow BP I came across. 

Once I get those 2 weapons I think I may be able to venture over to Redwoods to try and get some of the better drops in hope I can find a Beaver or Argy saddle. 

I like this new method. It keeps me busy and definitely adds another challenge early game wise. Will have to see if that maintains once I have the smithy and can start hitting cave drops. 

I'm tempted to bypass all flyers. Will see on that. It's kind of fun running around in foot. Fighting off Raptors, mostly, and Carno's. 

I made a gamma adjustment to make me have to rely in torches a bit more. I like it so I'm gonna keep it.

 

Newest Deaths;

1 Bary (thought I could take it but man is it a lot stronger than a Raptor even at level 45), 1 Raptor.

Busy day today! Logged in and began prepping eggs to hatch for exp, loading grinders, prepping mats and invited the new tribe I helped before to raise some rexs on The Island at my base. I thought Tek Cave was today but its next sat!

I helped them a lot, taught em a few tricks and they imprinted 3 rexs. I lent them my chainsaw and they farmed up enough for 3 saddles, I mindwiped and made them for them, along with some flak.

Later on when Mike got on we gave them a few reject breeder birth Thyla's and prepped for a Gamma Dragon. Saltire and I have been meaning to do it anyways before our Tek Cave and server map change, so we brought the new guys along on their new rexs.

First we leveled our tames with giga eggs & grinders, Saltire went for an artifact and we set up at blue, 15x Theriz, 1x yuty and 3x rexs with riders. It was a bit chaotic but we eventually got it down. We were getting pelted by fireballs. I lost 3 theriz (saltire got saddles though :) ) but we got our dermis to complete our boss collection.  The element glitched out and we didnt get any...after extensive searching.

After I went for a break, then I took the guys along for a swamp cave run to show em how. No good loot.

Now im just filling the Gachas and refilling our stocks around the base. Might do some loot runs before the map switches too

Bsically what d1nk said in the previous post. I logged on after work to to a hive of activity in our base with the new folks running around rasing rexes and what not. I uncryoed my three adolescent rexes and finished raising and imprinting them. Also raised up some of my new thylas for my main character, and raised and imprinted on a blue and also a cyan one. Still need to work on yellow and orange ones. The new guys got a few of the rejects that popped.

Preped up for the dragon fight and I dashed off to grab an artifact of the skylord out of the easy ice cave. I know the cave well enough but I hate the instant death zones in these cave, am not a fan, just feels cheap.  I got the artifact no problem the first time but on the way out I misjudged a jump and fell into one of the instant death holes..... so geared back up and went in again and got the artifact without dying.

Did the dragon boss with the new guys. Went well we all survived and only lost 3 theris. Thankfully I counted the deaths and made sure to get the saddles back, dont fancy having to replace ascendant saddles. Got the dermis but didnt seem to score the element but thankfully me and d1nk are made of element on the island so it was no biggie.

Finished off the night by doing a hide run on my giga. Targeted 3 titanosaurs and got about 40 to 45k worth of hide in total, I love chainsaws. Also got the dermis off all 3.

After I typed up my story I went and chugged an energy drink and was up till 5am lol. Wife was working these weird split shifts so it didnt feel so late!

Continued running the Gachas, element dust, black pearls and crystal. Did a metal few metal runs, killed a Titan with my giga for hide then went to the swamp cave again, loaded us up on paste and chitin. Prebuilt a bunch of stuff with gacha excess; Tek Behe, Transmitter and a load of metal pieces. Feels good switching to the advanced maps sometimes :P 

Went to Extinction (after making special kibble on Rag) To tame up an event Snow owl. I want to earn one for Rag so ill do so by breeding an event one for there. Cleaned the ice area for a few hours, tamed a low level event owl, manag and then a 130 owl.

Transferred it all to the Center, then remembered we have a JM Mek BP. Looked up the cost of that + JM Shield gen + Launcher and the total is: 700 black pearls, 6000 crystal, 700 element, 12000 ingots and 6500 polymer total. New pet project yay o/ 

Gathered my stuff I built earlier and wanted to build a public spino trap similar to @DeHammer's one. Decided to use my other server resources for it and transferred it all to Rag. Found a nice spot in the middle of the canyon and set up a 7x8 trap with a pit fall ramp, a behe on one side and a Tek behe on the ramp side (on 10 second close timer) I surrounded the area in large stone walls to make a decent sized yard around for safety then made a small 2x6 metal hut; one unlocked tek dino gate into a small 2x4 area with public transmitter (to keep it safe but accessable) then a 2x2 room with the genny, a fridge, vault and bed for our personal stuff here.

Put a smithy, small forge, some water tanks and two narco crops uptop to finish it off. Still have a few aestetics to add but its pretty much done. Adding more today before i need to head out.

After that its back to regular Rag for a few days while all my boss tames sit in cryo ( @AngrySaltire make sure you cryo all ur theriz and rexs - get those extra melee levels for Tek Cave)

Island

Started off the day raising up the last two thylas I needed to raise. While I did that I transfered over a silica pearl gacha I had on Extinction and the organic polymer we have on the center and let them produce crysal while I imprinted the thylas. Got a vault filled with gacha crystals ready to pop poly when we need it now. 

Went on the hunt for some anglerfish on my basilo. Found a 115 male relatively quickly and downed that and tamed it. Just as it finished up taming that I spotted a 145 female above me so went and tried to knock that out. Unfortunately I got involved in a brawl with that one and my basilo I thought was passive was not and got a hit onto the angler, which was enough for me to kill the thing when putting the last few tranc arrows into it. Fuming I settled for a lowly level 90 female and tamed that up instead. I hate the island level weighting...

Got the anglers home and bred a couple up before taking one to Ragnarok to try harvesting some silica pearls there. Started off on one of the sea mounts just as bout as far south as you can get. Got about 20k silica from there. Took the haul back and then went to viking bay to try the cave there, never been into that one before. I know its a boosted server but it was a bit insane in there. I came out of there with 32k silica pearls, I could have come out with alot more but I was limited by my anglerfish or more crucially by my griffin which was my trip home. 

Finished off back on the Island and did a metal run.

About that just went to cryo them up just now, but they appear to have gone walkies. You havent seen them have you ?

Also I have an idea to try and get a giga into the tek cave. Apparantly you can get them in by cryopod as long as you deploy before the door shuts. Still thinking whether to use a spare one or raise up another one. It wont teleport into the overseer arena but might be able to cryo it before teleport so it isnt lost completely. If not it will be a worthy sacrifice to the Ark gods

Funnily enough I asked the same thing in the discord server about that, I asked if it was too cheesy but DJs response was that there was 2 wild gigas in there.... Ill think about it too, tis a bit cheesy.

Ah thats me being blind again then, wouldn't see them if they hit me in the face.

Ok then ill bring my island giga, it has a mc saddle thats disposable. Id assume youd be on yuty or rex so have our therrexfollow (yuty follow on auto courage?) And breeze through it :P 

 

Finalized my taming trap. Forgot I had our old Forge boat near so I parked it beside the trap and lured a 135 spino into the new trap, flawless. Works so well. Tamed up no problem then hopped back to base. 

Just hopped to the island (I also had an organic poly gacha in my ark data lol) And set up the 2nd poly gacha, filled them all and ill gather crystals while I get ready

Things were going a bit too easy on my no engram survival game so I wiped all single player data including the Ab play through and readjusted some settings and have started my journey on the island.

I think its great that some of you guys are playing through again with special effort to challenge yourselves. I'm a very cautious player, planning every move I make, and rarely ever die. I think I've died twice in the last four months. The down side with that... and I was just discussing this with a workmate the other day... is that if you don't put yourself 'in the bite' once in a while, you never get a sense of what your limits are. For the first month of playing I was so concerned about getting bit by a wild dino, even when on a mount, that I just didn't put myself in harms way. Once I started using myself as bait for Tapejaras (rare flower, on a ptera), I began to finalize realize that I was missing out on so much because of my over abundance of caution. 

Now I do the wyvern's trench on a wyvern without fear. I'm still cautious about it, but not afraid of dying in the game like I was. Silly, I know.

Had to start over. Had a corrupted save. Grind all day to lvl 31. Did tame a eqqus after reaching 10, was lvl 135 after tame, found a base site but told myself that since I had already built through the tiers on my earlier play through that I wouldn’t create a base until it was stone. Started on a big foundation, got that pretty much done. I’ve been hoarding resources, and also got around 500 narcos made, and that helped big time with the lvls

I thought I was getting close to having a few weeks off of raising dinos but I was delivered a 1150 weight argy egg that I now need to raise and start egging for friends. Then a 310 Doed, then a 260 Owl... it started slow but by the middle of Saturday I had my Yuty (88%) 3 Wyvs (80%) 2 Rexes, 2 Snow Owls, 2 Doeds, 1 Magmnr, 2 Theris, 2 Gigas, 1 Argy, 2 Pteras and a pig all maturing in the breeding barn. It was a bit hectic as I also got my 225 reaper baby maturing on Ab (its about 7% now) but podded it as it was just too much going on, and Ive a pair of 310 Spino babies, 4 Rock drakes to raise alongside the reaper. 

I ran some purple drops on Ext looking for the replacement Rex BP we lost during a server transfer, we got some lovely saddles inlcuding a 108 arm asc rex saddle - but it wasnt the BP. I'd happily trade for one but it takes so much effort to transfer stuff so I think Ill just grind more purples. 

It was fun, we took a guy on his first Ext run on his imprinted Giga and at one stage he was trying to tank 4 enraged Rexes and saw his HP go from 35k to 12k in a few short moments - his voice on Discord was truly brilliant. The other 3 of us jumped in and let him pump meat behind. Then one of the guys dc'd and we had to protect his body and Giga so effectively 2 of us were completing the 6th wave when his Giga enraged and ate him. For a short while it was me (luckily I moved my Ext char off and brought my main Center char over with a 97% imp Giga) and I managed to get control until new guy came back into the fray and my trusty tribeleader logged back in. 

It was a fun adventure and it nearly went all wrong - but isnt that why we love ARK?

Got on for a short while again last night, didnt have much time because GoT Ep. 5.. (omg..)

Made some cakes the other day, grabbed some and went to my spino trap then off to the Highlands. Only found 1 sheep total but it was a 135 f so tamed it. Ill grab a male some time.

Did a big clear of the canyon, twice. Was trying to find some hlvl spino and found a 145 on my 3rd clear - it was pretty far away but started luring it to the trap. Friggin things have ADD, right infront of the trap it took off into deep water to fight a bary. It was losing horribly.. chasing it round and round getting bloody so I stepped in and took a chance. Fire breathed the pair luckily the bary turned to me and I killed it. The spino then b-lined waaay back to where I lured it >< Round 2.. 20 mins later got it knocked out in the pen. Stood up with terrible stats. Cryo'd it then logged out.

If I get on today ill keep trying for more high levels.

PS4 - Ragnarok - Crazy Boosted German Server

 

Spent a lot of time online this weekend.  On Saturday, I was doing some breeding of my Thylas, as I had tamed a 1/2 or so colored ones from the Easter event. I had a Neon Green body with cyan chest and yellow stripe, a Neon Green body, cyan chest and brown-red stripe, also had a dark green body and spine with orange chest,  cyan body with neon green stripe, Pink with pink chest and red stripe, ... you get the idea.

I wanted an all neon green thyla. So after dozens of breedings, I had the Neon body and chest with the dark green body. I was happy, but it was a female, and I wanted a male too. So I bred one more time, and I got a color mutation ... a neon green stripe! So this male is all neon green. Love it.

About this time, I realized, I could really use some cryopods, as I was trying to tame a high level black thyla to add to my line. I noticed that there was about 8 people on the server (max 18) so I asked if anyone had a Tek Replicator. 2 people answered yes. I then asked, if I provided materials, would someone be willing to craft me a cryofridge and cryopods?

One responded yes right away. It was a name I had seen on the server many times before. So I got there base address, and told them I would be over in a bit. I was getting ready to leave for their base, when I realized that I needed more Polymer. So I took my Wyvern over to the desert to kill mantis. On the way back, as I was flying over the murder snow, I saw a beautiful nearly all white Ice Wyvern.  A level 330! Which is close to the highest level on this server (360 for Wyverns)  Then as luck would have it, a dino gate materialized in the distance. I had put dino gates in the area of the nests and desert drops. So I flew over, and there was an egg.... it was the level 330! Grabbed that and made my way to the person's base.

This was my first real interaction with a person at a base, and they did not have a mic. But they let me into the entrance of their cave base, and then I followed them up towards a Tek force field protecting their house. At this point, I could tell that I would not be able to follow them into their Tek Replicator. So I dumped out all of the materials, and asked for a Cyrofridge, and as many cyropods he could make with the left over materials. He took a moment looking at all the materials I dropped, then said he would make them all for free. and left the materials on the ground. (remember this is a boosted server)  I waited outside looking at his Gigas and other dinos. Had to fight the automatic response to pick up the eggs the dinos dropped! Then he returned with the stuff I asked for. Must have made me 30 cyropods! I then dropped the 330 Ice Wyvern as a thank you. He then threw down a cyropods with a max level Theri in it!  

I had noticed he only had 1 Griffin, so I asked if he would like a colored event one. So he followed me to my base, and I let him pick out any griffin (except for 2 that I had tucked away in another room. I then asked if he wanted a Thyla?  He asked if I had a red one ... (sorry no), then what about blue?  I told him I only had Cyan blue. But not full body yet. But that I would get him one once I made one.

So I spent the rest of Saturday and most of Sunday trying to make an all Cyan Thyla ... luckily, I was able to get a Cyan spine mutation early in the breeding ( of the Green thyla project)  so I was able to add that in, and produced and all Cyan Thylas (sorry Saltire!)

So finally on Sunday night I gave him an all cyan baby male thyla, along with an all neon green female bay thyla.

He asked to clone my Snow Owl (I had found it abandoned and claimable way up in midair over water weeks ago) So he was going to do that today ..... big test of trust.  Will he actually give it back?

 

Time will tell.

PS4 -Ragnarok - Boosted German Server

So logged on last night, and within minutes got a message from the guy who had borrowed my Snow Owl. Told me he would be over in 5 minutes.

While waiting for him, I went to check on the 3 Wyvern babies I had hatched the night before. (Because of the boosted rates on this server, with milk and preserving salt in the inventory, a Wyvern will survive on its own after reaching 10%, plus the imprinting timers are so screwed that all dinos mature before ever asking for imprints)  Well I had hatched 3 Ice Wyverns on Sunday, and 2 had event colors.  However now, only 2 of those wyverns were in my pens. No deaths in the tribe log, but one of the event colored wyverns was gone. It is neon green with yellow and blue, so easy to see. But no where to be found.  The exact same thing happened weeks ago.  I wonder what is happening. 

Sure enough, after 5 minutes he showed up and gave me back my Snow Owl. He gave me a Rock Drake adult as a thank you for the Snow Owl clone.  I'm still not sure how he got a Drake on this map, nor how the Original snow owl ever got on this map, as the server doesn't allow transfer in. The server  does say "weekend event" in it's description, though I've never noticed one. (In fact, I've never seen an admin on) so maybe during previous events the admin spawned in these dinos from other maps. Oh well.

So I noticed that this one kid has been on chat for the last 2 weeks, and he is always asking to join people's tribe.  This is the same guy who placed tiny little structures all around the outskirts of my base, basically preventing me from expanding.

Well last night, while flying over the map, I came across 2 HUGE bases in this kid's name. Each base has dozens of gigas, wyverns, rexes, etc. Huge metal buildings, and one even had a tek forcefield around part of it.  This is the same kid that I stopped by his base 2 weeks ago, and it was a tiny small stone structure, and at the time, he had left a hole in the roof. I like to explore open bases, but unless they have been abandoned, I never take anything from them. While exploring his base, I noticed that he had 2 unlocked storage cabinets with the exact same stuff in.  Totally random stuff, and # of units in the stack, but in each cabinet, they were the exact same.  very odd.  Like the exact same number of arrows and mejo seeds, and stone, etc in each storage bin.  Now 2 weeks later he is the biggest bases on the server.  Strange, but whatever. I just know, I won't let him in my tribe. I am a solo tribe guy, a rebel, a 1 man gang, a lone wolf .... (insert other cliches here.)

Tried to tame a max level all black Thyla.  Made a trap, and lured the Thyla in it. But right as I was exiting out of the trap, the thyla jumped and I glitched into him. I could not escape, but he was hitting me hard. So I tried tranq darting him, but soon my high level armor was breaking, and then I started taking major damage. I began punching him as hard as I could, and finally, I popped free. I then jumped out of the trap, but since I hadn't yet shut the last door, he escaped. As I ran over to my Griffin, it was getting attacked by scorps and hyenas. So I jumped on them, and just as I was killing the last one, the Thyla jumped into the fray, and my Griffin killed him.  :(  I had been looking for an all black high level, and now it was dead!

Spent more time looking for a Thyla, gave up, and as I was heading home, I saw the level 330 White Ice wyvern again, and there was an egg in the nest again. Grabbed this one for myself, and flew back towards the base and got disconnected while flying over the canyons. After finally getting back in, I was at the bottom of the canyon, and my Griffin was not even in sight.

Since my health was still recovering from the Thyla battle, and my armor was all broken, I just ran up to the nearest raptor, and let it eat me. I then spawn back at base. Jumped on an argy; grabbed my Griffin from mid-air, and then recovered my body bag.

Also while I had been out looking for Thylas, I re-bred my Cyan thylas, hoping to get another all cyan thyla. (I gave the first one away to the guy with the replicator) My previous attempts all resulted in non-all cyan. But when I returned this time, the female soon popped out a all cyan male, and he got all the high stats to boot!

Got him fed and watched him (force fed) until he was well on his way, then topped off the food troughs and logged off.

 

I'm going to see if the guy with the replicator will craft some Tek doors and a transmitter next.  I have a fully Tek base on the Boosted American server, and those tek doors are really spoiling me. I love them.

I messaged a tribemate on Steam whilst at work to see if our new 310 Doeds had made it through the night... they didnt.

It kind of put in a 'cant be bothered' mode and as such wasnt going to log in for a day or so, and then go back and finish off a few raises. 

I cracked, logged in just to get some metal and when I logged in, there they were, my two little Doeds just eating away at the troughs - tribemembers!! Who needs them eh?!!

It was a nice surprise but I did tell my tribemate, that he nearly played solo for a few days haha

I did get some metal, repaired some armours and bred for some eggs. I think tonight will be a revenge plot... maybe make a new cryofridge and move all the dinos out to a new cryofridge elsewhere in the base and say that something spawned in the raising barn and destroyed the cryofridge including his new 505MD Giga baby... is that too mean?!!
