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. 🤨

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

Good god Salty.  That blows.  Aberration all the way!  That map is challenging as it is beautiful.  I don't play on your cluster, but that is my vote as a random know-nothing forumgo-er.

What I did in ARK today:  Mourned the bugged loss of a Ab Megalosaurus, died with food in trough in Adolescence.  Boooooooo.....

We play on his server and it was above and beyond anything I expected. I did lose a lot on Ab but now theres no rush to get it back.  Plus, another fresh start! Yay building. (Ive already been hard at work there lol)

Started a new world, went to go tame a tek parasaur i found (i love tek btw), figured out how dangerous the Therizinosaur and died, found another tek parasaur, figured out how hostile a spino can be, died

 

 
 

You’ll get there. Just be grateful the Therizinos aggro range was significantly nerfed a while back. They were like Raptors.

I’ll make a start on Aberration this week, and jump to Scorched in a couple weeks :). You’ve just reminded me about a communal structure I need to build on Ab.

Good one last night! Wife was out at a play so got the whole night to myself. Started on Ragnarok. Wanted to farm up a bunch of structures, metal and finish the base up a tad. Did a few material runs, a big metal run and placed my Tek Replicator, forge and made the main industrial crafting area on the roof.

Popped over to The Island, transferred my character there to Aberration. First time transferring on this cluster, spawned near fertile lake right outside Saltires base. Couldnt use the transmitter - so I called a buddy on the server to pick me up in his tribe temporarily and made my way to my base spot.

Did quite a few transfers around the clusters grabbing a load of stuff. Did more premade runs and ended up making a decent sized place outside blue zone. Placed a transmitter and completed most of the exterior structure after quite a few hours of transfers, building and farming. Killed an Alpha krab right outside my base.

Im just waiting to tribe up with Saltire then finish the base

Cool Ill be on tonight. I scouted your base out earlier 😛I have just about finished my main build. Got a tek genny down and need to stick the teleporter down, thinking of linking the two bases by teleporter. You got any idea what to do ? Like make one of them the breeding center or something ?

Yeah probably sounds good, not entirely sure which but mine could make a decent breeding base - im babysitting all day but later maybe we can meet up when my niece naps

Aberration 

As has already been mentioned, the server rotation on our cluster did not go to plan but at least now we have a full cluster to play with. Instead of going to Scorched as I was planning I just had to go to Aberration instead, definitely my favourite DLC. Sucks to have to reestablish though. I transfered in a bunch of stuff and got my main base down in my old build location in the fallen nexus. Fitted it out with the essentials plus hooked up a tek transmitter and teleporter. Met up with d1nk and merged tribes. Farmed up a teleporter and tek genny for his base too so we can link our bases. Still not decided what to use my build for. Maybe we could use d1nks base a breeding center and mine for storage.

Once I get fully set up my plan is to build up another trench team consisting of a spino and squad of megalosaurus and get them into the trench for drake egg farming. But my ultimate goal for the msp at the moment is to tame reapers, never done that before and I have a few ideas on that. I want to set up some sort of reaper raising facility maybe nearby our bases in the fertile zone and have it linked to a trap in the red zone by teleporter. Aim for high level reapers and get multiple kings. Might take a bit of testing and trial and error but it should be fun.

Busy day yesterday.

So, according to the server admin the 7x difficulty is a rotating event every other weekend. That's great news for taming. The bad news is it makes hunting for stats pointless 90% of the time. I'll have to spend my time wisely to make the most of it.

This being an off weekend, I spent most of the day in base making some significant changes. I cryo'd up most of my animals, especially my breeders. Moving my hatchery area up onto what was previously my wyvern platform. One wyvern has since died and the other one is in the fridge, leaving Norothrax by himself, he doesn't seem to care though. Honestly I could pop one of the higher level eggs I picked up last week but I don't really need another wyvern right now so...yeah. The next one I hatch will be a max level, if anything. Anyway.

One of the issues with my hatchery was having a separate generator that was constantly running out of gas because I always forgot to turn it off when I wasn't using it. First I widened the bridge across to my main base so animals can now comfortably traverse it. Then I ran my cabling from my base to the hatchery. Now everything runs from one generator. Can't wait to get a tek gen and remove all those unsightly (but hidden) wires but that's a long way off at this rate.

I also finally built the rear corner of my base, turned it into a loft greenhouse. It's pretty small, just 4 plots, but I really shouldn't need more than that. I'll let my temporary plots keep producing until they run out of fertilizer and then remove them, they're right in front of the bridge.

I took my theri over to the swamp and did a massive run on rare flowers. Got my payment for the manas sorted, plus enough for the promised rexes and more than enough for myself too. Managed to make 40 extraordinary kibble in preparation for next weekend. It sounds like a lot but it's not enough, not by far.

Then I started breeding what I could. Side note, my spino grew up fine but my juvenile thorny dragon starved, not sure how that happened. I just have no luck at all with that line. First thing I bred was my argent, popped a female with all the stats I wanted, basically almost a clone of her mother. Imprinted it's going to have something like 900 base weight. Then I bred my mana pair, got a female, again with all the stats I wanted. Side note babies do still jet into the sky when born. Luckily it didn't fly off the cliff...

My new friend also stopped by to pick up the flower and also to give me a female spino with the high HP roll so I can try to breed it into my lines. So I bred that and got...another 0 hp spino. Amazing. Every other stat I wanted transferred. I'll keep it though simply because I can pair it with my 0 speed male and work on dumping that useless 48 points from my line.

I didn't have too much else on the docket but chatting about breeding and various past projects has me wanting to work on colors again. So I went out hunting argents with the aim of breeding a full white bird. Once I've got the colors I'll breed it with my stat females until I've got a full white utility bird. Only managed to get 2 birds before I got tired. Stocked up my troughs and logged for the night.
