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

any kibble that is a higher tier then what the baby is asking for will work for it, i.e. if it asks for basic and you have simple, it will work.

I thought that only applied to taming, only recently started breeding and raising. I'm glad I have found out though.

My goal is to breed boss fight dinos on the island and move all non essential dinos to another map to breed for colours, I have set my sights on Valguero for my big dino zoo as it's seperate from the story arks.

Nope! Once you can tame some yuty, do it. All you need is Yuty and a few hives and youll never need any kibble dinos.

I still made exceptional and other kibbles because I hated making the soups all the time but in theory you can just use Extraordinary for everything

I would suggest focusing on taming Yutys, so you can make the Extraordinary kibble. This kibble will work for taming any creature and for any imprint asking for kibble. 

Well now that I know this and after looking up where they spawn at in Valguero I will go see if I can get me one sometime soon! Thanks for the info cause I'm all about getting that kibble to make taming easier! 

So last night was pretty awful except didn't actually loose our two fliers due to death. I just don't know what happened to them. I landed to mark an area that I found crystal at and when I turned around they were gone. The argy was following me and the pteranadon was following the argy so I don't know what happened. Then I got killed but had an awesome person from a different tribe help me out looking for it. Couldn't find them but there is stil a lot of my map I haven't explored yet so I'll try and knock that out tonight. Good news is the baby of the missing Ptera is all grown up and has a saddle on him! Just need to boost up his stamina to match his mommas so I can use him but hes super fast! This morning I created a ton of stuff to make our greenhouse (which is why I was looking for crystal last night) and will finish gathering more and hunting for the argy cause that nonsense is heavy to lug back and forth with a newly baby ptera that can't carry a lot yet.

You can use deinonycus eggs (fertilised ones) as well to help boost kibble production and get rid of low level wild eggs.

I currently have 3 fertilized Dein eggs and I wanna hatch them and use them to murder death dinos that annoy me around our area. But if I end up with more after those 3 I'll keep that in mind.

One thing to be aware of, is that Ptera and Argies will freak out and fly away if too close to a roaring Yuty.  So the way I tame them, is find one I like, then I build a 4 dino gate pen. Then I cryopod my flyer.  Then I kite the yuty into the trap and tame them up.  

Sorry to hear about your lost flyers.

I was reading that and sadly i don't have the cryo power yet( i know its not a power its all tech but it sounds cooler to me if i say power) so my plan was to have my gf fly me over to where they are and drop me in a place where I could make the trap/gate thing, which i've never used before but I have been looking into it, and then once its all tamed up have her come back and be lookout for the L O N G walk back to our base. But it seems like they're pretty BA so I feel like I can take most things that will come at me afterwards. And thank you. Thing is the ptera was lost for a week like this before and I stumbled across her on accident when exploring so I feel like that's what is gonna happen to me again. Or at least I'm optimistic that is what will happen.

I believe you can craft cryopods in drops and Oblisks. (I'm not 100% sure, as I just make them in my Replicator)

 

But if you are planning on walking your newly tamed Yuty out, you might consider bringing a saddle with you for it, so that you can give it some added protection. And remember, newly tamed dinos, often need time to heal up when you level them up, so it might not be as BA as you think, if its health is still low.  It might be better to just try and run away from most bad guys, until you get it back to your base.

Flew around ragnarok for a bit looking for griffins but none had respawned, the last time I was here I tamed a blue one during the July colour event. Went to my makeshift base, a roughly L-shaped set of foundations 2 wide with a wall along one side and crafting area in the corner. Did some work on the base and then dino wiped and headed out again.

Found and tamed a couple of griffs lvls 55 and 85 one was red body with brown wings and the other was red body with black wings, levels aren't great but I got them for the colours just wish I could breed them. Flying the higher level griff home, to gain some levels, I spot a 135 quetzal in the snowy place, I took the scenic route home, glad I was on the griff instead of my usual argy mount as it makes solo taming a quetz loads easier. Tamed up the quetz, eventually, and she is gorgeous, red wings with a body that is such a dark red it looks black or it's black with red highlights, she may also be the highest level quetz I have and will definitely be bred.

That took up most of my time so I packed up what I needed and headed back to the island to make the most of Fear Evolved.

Woke up in the hatchery on the island and ran out to the ob to get my stuff, the tames all seemed a little interested in me hurtling past them butt naked (except the dimetrodon who didn't seem to notice me rematerialise next to them). I got dressed at the ob and downloaded my argy and other miscellaneous items. A brief spell of putting things away later and I am good to go, I took off on my trusty battle argy (who still needs a name, it's silver grey with light blue wingtips) I left my recent travel buddy argy at home to rest. I farmed a load of orange drops and put the foods in the fridges at the hatchery, still got 2 to fill and the event has been extended so all is on track. Dodorex spawned again and this time I found him on a southern beach, I pulled him away from the waters edge (he was paddling in the shallows, I feel a bit bad for interrupting his downtime) and slowly and carefully proceeded to murderise him by kicking him in his fluffy cloaca. This time I was lucky/careful enough to get the dermis, think when I put it on display I will name him Johnny Depp.

Tried to claim the zomdodos but they remained hostile to my advances and didn't want to come into the woods with me, so much for my plan to gather an army of them.

I also put a cliff platform at 50/50 by the base of the volcano and laid out foundations on it stretching on to the land. I plan to build a greenhouse on it irrigated by the river with a wall and towers protecting it from the land side. This will be the main garden/kitchen base with storage for the artifacts and tributes needed for the boss fights.

Forgot to mention the zomdodos.

have not been playing for a while, sorta lost interest. the halloween clours seem to be very vauge, not very soldid colours. aside form a few pteras i tamed near redwoods. also cant seem to find skele dinos. have spotted 3 alpha raptors but they ar enot skele ones. if i am correcvt all alphas like carnos, rexes and raptors should be skelton when fear evolved is active. anyway i am not gonna update ark till something good happens or till the christmas event appears. i wanna savour the fear event and to do that i gonna not update ark for a while. i also have had alot of assingments and my new job to keep me busy.

there is the upcoming extralife event on nov. 2nd,  and mention of possibly getting the turkey event, and of course the winder event.  I agree with the colors, many blan ones, but I did get a nice owl.  I had major issues finding any bone dino's on the island map (official) before the last patch but seeing more alphas as skeleton ones so getting bones there is easier if you know where the alphas normally spawn, and there have been several bone giga showing up between the three mountains.

yeah i have only been playing on island lately to beat dodorex. in the last event alpahs always spwned as skeletons so it confuses me when i see regular alphas. anyway i have not seen one skele dino. also i suggest to wc to make event colours muc more solid and better. really hard to even tell them form regular colours sometimes. i spawned int eh dodo rex and killed it with a giga on god mode. when it died the dodorex did not give me much. aside form a dermis when hit with dermis tool. also kinda sad ab and ext did not get anything.

DAY 10 of Baby Raising. 

My quetz found it acceptable for me to pod it and unpod it to classify it as walking. Then it was back to base maintenance I am currently putting up plant species up our base due to recent activity on our server. We already have turrets and Velo's around as well. 

Anyways we are starting our new batch of babies tonight what will be Rexes and Mana's hopefully I will have my quetzes done by the weekend.

Got on early today and continued work on the new soon to be farming and light storage volcano base. I got some stone walls around the edges of the foundations on the land side and wooden railings around the overhanging river side, which should make for a nice balcony when this is finished. Made a start on the irrigation system, layed a pipe out through the railings and ran it down to the river. Now that I have a water source I have plumbed in a beer barrel and industrial cooker, just need to craft the greenhouse pieces and any large crop plots I need (got plenty of small plots from beacon drops). Started playing my favourite ark minigame 'intense inventory management' and worked diligently into the night when dodorex spawned in so of I go. Found the fluffy bugger hiding in the north by the blue ob, I was wondering just how many times I needed to kick him with the argy in order to kill him. I lost count around 135 (ish) as he kept fidgeting. He finally died and I got a second dermis, I was also able to claim the zomdodos without them attacking me this time.

On the 2 occasions where I have been able to claim the zomdodos the dodorex has died right next to them, on the other occasions he has wandered off  (once into a lake and once off a cliff) and died nowhere near the zomdodos. I don't know if this is connected but it seems like quite a big coincidence.

Next up will be a mass zomdodo migration and more crafting to finish the new farm base, and I should really aim to complete the green ob warehouse and progress to the next level of the intense inventory management game.

You may certainly suggest it and I may use it. I was contemplating using a Terrahawks reference because of the colours but none of the names are great. I am veering towards Dodgem, named after Deputy Sheriff Dodgem from Fireball XL5 and the 5 dodorexes it has killed without dying.

I have decided to name the battle argy 'Nigh', as in 'the end is nigh'.

Thank you @Rosati for your suggestion, I will use it in the future for a blue and green something. I have been saving all manor of level and colour tames since early 2018 for my big breeding zoo project to be implemented after I finish the storyline.

Aushegun,

Yutis will fit in a trap with 4 Stone Dino Gates?  Or do you use several Behemoth Gates?  If so, how many Behemoth Gates?  I had been assuming that Yutis were about Rex-sized and would not fit in a Stone Dino Gate.  I have never been close enough to measure one without dying while adjusting the tape measure.

They will easily fit in regular dino gate frames.  I fill in the actual gates for three of the side, then leave the final reinforced gate in my hotbar, and kite the Yuty into the trap.as soon as he enters, I hotbar the final gatedoor into place.

I leave enough space between the 4 corners of the gateframes, so that I can slip out safely.
