Only popped on for a like 10 minutes tonight to do a bit more Island base evacuation. Also switched Ark on the X onto HDR output for the giggles, usually run in low detail for preformance. Just wow. The Center looks amazing in that mode.

 @d1nk you finished moving everything you want off the Island yet ? I know we have a few days left ? You seen the rex and theri saddle bps ? Dont want to leave them on the Island lol. 

I moved em to Rag as i made a few theri saddles there. No I still need to get on and move a bit of stuff still too but got most of it. Really sucks having to use the trans for it takes foreverrr.. Ill get some time Friday night my time to do my final move before switch

But why?   Was it lagging out the area or something?

It wasn't lagging out the area, but in a 10x10 area in the centre of my base I was 1000 structures over the structure cap.

I start demolishing some of my walls to replace them with 4-high walls to help with cap and rendering, except then I couldn't place anything down after demolishing the singles due to cap.

This lead to the removal of my tribe name and also my entire kibble barn, since kibble dinos are useless now...

If your needing large amounts of items transfered, stick it all in a vault or something and I can transfer all via character transfer?

Ps4 - Ragnarok - Unofficial

 

Logged into the Grinder server last night, and was dismayed to immediately notice that the server had been rolled back again. 2nd time in 4 days. Once again I lost hours of resource grinding to make element, as well as multiple event colored Griffins.

Turns out someone somehow broke into a tek base that a player had been logged into earlier that day, and they stole everything from the base. (This is a PvE server, so not sure how that happens) The admins rolled back to get the person their stuff back.

 

So for the 3rd time in a week, I spent hours farming crystal and black pearls to make element.

After a while someone new appeared in chat, asking if anyone could help them get started. I was actually loading unwanted armor and tools into my grinder, so I said sure, I can help you out. So I meet the person at the Red OB, and give them a full ASC flak armor, ASC pick, hatchet, crossbow, shotgun, shotgun ammo, 40 metal walls, and a shinehorn, plus a couple cryopods.

The kid grabs them all, them promptly leaves the server.  No thank you, nothing. ( smh, some people's kids huh?)

About an hour later another person joins, and starts asking questions, but not asking for free stuff. Just asking what dinos on server, etc. About an hour later he asks if anyone know where Ravagers are this map. He is near the red ob, and I tell him they spawn not far from the Green OB on this map. Literally about 1 hours later, he says " I finally made it to green ob area, but don't see any. Then says something about being under attack.

I was just getting ready to head to that area anyway, so I teleport over, (lots of public TPs on this server) and I finally realize why it took him so long to travel across the map. He has no flyers, instead, he is riding a raptor, followed by a morrellotops, a kangaroo, thorny dragon, and a stego.  

Since this kid never asked for free stuff, just info, I decided to reward his long trip, so I gave him a ptera I had with me, 4-5 cryopods, a bulbdog and some other tools.

I then flew around and found him a ravager, and led him to it. He was very happy, and very nice. While he was taming the ravager, I found and tamed a griffin for him, and at the same time, another person on the server, gifted him a Reaper!.  Kid was very excited, and kept offering to repay us.  I hope he stays on the server, seems like a good one.

I then searched around for a while more, but the darkness and rain prevented me from finding a griffin worth taming for myself.  But on the way home, I found a event colored thyla that I tamed and added to the base.  (This server has night just as long as day, so it can get real dark for long periods)

Hopefully tonight, the server hasn't been rolled back again.

If you wouldn't mind explaining, how does that work? 

Basically instead of sitting there inserting the items you want to move server one by one, you just load up your inventory and transfer your character to another server. Saves alot of time. D1nk has different characters per server I just have the one so I can hop between servers.

The Center

Tbh honest I wasnt going to play tonight, was going to play more Halo and wait for the scorched server to rotate in but some of the other guys were thinking of boss fighting at somepoint so I decided to raise some theris to replace the ones we lost in the tek cave to bulk the team back up again. Hatched up and raised 6 new theris and fully imprinted all 6 of them. The imprinting timers on the server have been adjusted slightly and so its much easier to imprint longer raises and so I had 5 minutes to spare on my theris. Also finished my otter breeding project. Got a cyan and blue breeding pair with the best stats and also raised up 3 more for use. 

Spotted a 145 cyan and green doed left over from the event on a metal run so I tamed that up. 

Finished up by helping out one of our new neighbours. He had been trying to tame some anglers but kept getting killed by mosas and what not so I had my breeding pair of anglers drop a few eggs to help him out.

Also @d1nk, I had a look at the new Rag breeding base in the desert and I think I am in love with it. Looks awesome.

Well, it's been a very rough week at work so I've been putting in extra hours there, which means no time for Ark by the time I get home.

Luckily things finally calmed down enough for me to get out at a decent hour.

My spino had of course grown up so I went ahead and bred him with my stat-heavy female. I also bred my velos and my thornys. While I did discontinue the latter breeding line, I am still going to at least get my melee and weight rolls on one imprinted animal. Got nothing from the velos, finally got a female thorny with weight I can breed with my melee male. And got a new spino with every stat except HP...inherited the 0 from his father. Ugh. Obviously I can't use him for combat but I can breed with my highest HP female. I also desperately need to breed out the totally wasted 48 speed points in this line, just waiting to do that until after I've got my working stat build because I need a baby from the line as a main mount.

Also just realized I totally forgot to breed my new argent, oh well.

That pretty much sums up my day. Got my babies to juvenile, collected kibble eggs, stocked the trough and logged.

I did find out from the server admins the increased difficulty is every other weekend. I don't know what this weekend's event will be so until I find out, I don't plan to really do much taming in the near future. I still need to work on a new Aberration outpost, I want to reconfigure my current main base again, and I'm thinking about rebuilding the Arkanus on The Island one more time. Also need an Extinction outpost, I have nothing set up there since so far I've only been hunting velos but I need to start preparing for OSDs at the very least. I was very kindly gifted a cryofridge and 50 pods but I lost 2 of them during my failed drake hunt and I'm sure I'll lose more at some point.

So today I played for a bit just to explore everything on rag I always have missions in mind but today was just a chill day.

I died to a bat in the castle because I dismounted for no reason other than hitting wrong button.

I'm making a headstone to place near or on castle to tell my tale of idiocy. 

Then I died falling somehow I dismounted the wrong way from Griffin I am going to blame myself for that death. 

Won't make gravestone as it doesn't count.

I died in pirate cove to the stupid things that knock you out I can never recall name of them. My thyla died too. Not sure if my fault couldn't see anything.

Thyla gravestone to make.. 

I died by drowning. FML! I got stuck in my meg somewhere mid belly and somehow during a manta fight I killed myself according to death message. 

Sooo I'm having the rest of the day off. ?

Are you saying that if I am playing on a cluster, I don't have to individually load everything in my inventory?  That I can just keep it all in my inventory, and it will still be there when I spawn into the new cluster server?    

 

If that's the case, man have I been wasting a lot of time, when going back and forth.

Yikes...... sounds like one of those ARK days for sure!

I think you are referring to the Eurypterids ... the lobster like things in Viking Bay.  Great for Black pearls, but they are a Pain In the Pego!

PS4 - Ragnarok - unofficial grinder server

 

Logged on last night late, after a long day of work.  Good news, no rollback!

 

I spent the majority of the night trying to find and tame colored Griffins. However never saw a one. Arrrrggh

 

I then tried to tame some colored snow owls, only to have about everything go wrong that could, including surprise wolf attacks, Yuty fear roar, Dimorphodon, wyverns ... etc.  So no owl either. grrrrrr

 

On chat the new kid from the other night was asking where to find Thylas, as some one had gifted him a male, and he wanted to tame a female. I told him some area, but after an hour or 2 he still hadn't found one. So I just bred up my thylas until I popped a female.  But I got a couple sets of twins, so I ended up trading a mated pair to a guy for a pair of Ravagers.  I also gave the female to the new kid, and a male to someone who replied when I said I had one available.

I grabbed a max level Fire Wyvern egg, and I also came across the most beautiful max level royal blue Ice Wyvern, but I could not find a nest anywhere. I even dragged it multiple times over a known nest spawning  location; and got nothing.  Booooooooo!

Called it a night.

Yep. Just load up your inventory and transfer your character :) I cant stand sitting there uploading items one by one. Might be worth double checking on respective clusters to make sure it does work, various settings might not allow it.

You mentioned him vaulting stuff though, so that's what confused me - how the vaulted items would get transferred?

Related, does it take a special configuration to not have your inventory destroyed on transfer? I remember having to put everything in Ark Data first. 

Thanks for your help!

Ah sorry i was meaning stick all the stuff in a vault so that I would know what to transfer. 

Hhmmm not sure about that one.

^^ might be the answer, my local servers are not clustered. I'll go look it up. Thanks for the info! (I now return the thread to its regularly scheduled discussions :) )

These are different maps by different people you play on? It wont work then - only if one of the maps you play on bought another map connected (clustered) Wont work cross-maps or to your own singleplayer

More admin related than actual gameplay but still...

I finished work early today and came back to rotate our Island server over to Scorched Earth only to find that the previous saves were wiped :(. Loaded up Aberration and it was the same, everything gone. I figured this was due to our server moving hardware the day after our first planned Tek cave event 2 weeks earlier.

As a host, nothing’s worse than knowing everyone’s hard work has been lost due to unforeseen circumstances out of your control. I only want the best for my community so a bit the bullet and bought 2 new permanent servers, on the maps which were previously on the rotation.

We now have all maps on our cluster, yay. I plan to make a fresh start this weekend but I’m at odds on which map it will be; Scorched Earth or Aberration.

Just double check in case :) As d1nk says it might not be the case. 

 

I checked on the Server Manager's discord, DelilahEve confirmed that you need to be in a cluster to transfer with inventory. Otherwise you have to use Ark Data. 

....now I wish I'd clustered my three local servers lol. Bad server manager! Bad! hehe

Single Player- Island- PS4

Well, the maiden voyage went well lol. Couldn’t post the gif Bc it was too big but picture jack sparrow riding back to the dock with his ship completely under water, that was me. Got it beached in the swamp, literally less than an hour after completing it. Will be funny to run across later lol. Finally got some tames. Got a lvl 80 lystro first just to help out, then ran into a 120 ptera and tamed it as well. While I was trying to find new tames, I ran into a 145 carno, he killed me multiple times as I tried to get my stuff, so I decided to make a trap and lead him. This was successful and ended up tranq’ing him, he has been my savior so far as he had really good stats and with lvling he’s 250 now and has 15k+ health. Tamed two lvl 50+ tek Parasaurs to hopefully breed for a “farm” later, and also tamed a 85 dilo and 90 raptor just to have them.
