So what did you do in ARK today?


Recommended Posts

PVP ORP Ragnarok

 

Well! Tribal drama seems to have settled with the coming of Fear Evolved.

But a new challenge is looming. The tame cap for the entire server has apparently been reached, and although we cryo'd many animals to bring it to a more substantial number, we still must be scraping the ceiling. This could call for warfare between normally fairly peaceful tribes. What I enjoy most about our ORP server is that battles between tribes are quite rare, and most disagreements are handled peacably or with shows of power rather than actual wipes. This gives it an almost political vibe. But this, tame cap getting reached, could push normally docile tribes to action if they grow frustrated enough....

At least, those are my fears. Such is life I suppose, haha, though.... I can't say the idea of getting rid of some enemies in favor of lowering the tame cap isn't tantalizing.

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

we cryo'ed our dinos as well for the event to help evade the dino cap abit, I wish more people would cryo their unused dino's rather then leaving them all out it would help with that problem during more then just the event.

so i was talking my friends place and he got not 1 but 2 new gaming PC's. one for him and one for his little bro. so he downloaded ark on both of them and i told him bout how syntac has a new patreon server. he was flippin out bout it so he said as soon as we finish school this afternoon we will play on it. we are both patreons and are at the rank to access the server. anyway the server is like a medieval server were dinos are not tamable. the server also has castles and keeps, NPC and a few other mods that syntac never plays without like S+. i watched most of his vids and we figured we will go viking bay as the north east end is being swarmed with players including sir syntac himself. i lookin ford to playing a style were it is no dino tames. i wanna go straight for horses then wolves. i feel like wovles and thylas will be a common travel tame. also since u cant tame dinos kibble will be impossible to get as you can farm the eggs. we already know where we gonna build. sadl yit also were syntac and his tribe wanna build. its the flat area near castle. since we will be spawning in viking bay we should get there first. 

imagine if we go up against syntac himself

Started with the mass transport of zomdodos up the mountain to blue ob, being able to carry 3 at a time with the argent is a blessing. Looks like I have the option to upload them so I could 'fast travel' them to another obelisk, even though I was thinking of gathering them all at the new kitchen base. As I was flying off to continue gathering the artifacts and tributes dodorex spawns again, after a couple of game days searching I find him on the southern coast and gain another gaggle of undead dodos. No dermis this time as he fell in a shallow river with piranhas around. I lead the dodos to the coast and on route they killed a couple of pegos, a few dilos and trodons, 2 raptors lvl 10 and 50 and a lvl 55 sarco.

Now it's dodorex night again and off I jolly well go. 

But before I leave I want to share my findings, it seems if you use an argy to kill dodorex you need to stay towards the base of his tail and above or level with his back. If you get too close to his head or drop below the midway point between his spine and belly he will agro. Also don't land for stam while the music is playing as he will give chase, land for stam outside of the music range.

Logged on, bred new black/orange argy with my line, culled the baby.

Watched Netflix all night, hopping over to Ark every 15 minutes to run in a circle and open a door to keep from being booted for inactivity. 

Ran a few loads of advanced bullets before bed.  Not sure why, my server is pretty much deserted.

Found the second ddrex on the western edge by the shallow inlet/sandbar, killed him and got another dermis and claimed 28 zomdodos. Walked the dodos back to red ob for potential fast travel and then went back and tamed a level 20 diplo, she has a blue body and orange underbelly and red spikes, she serves no real purpose but I think she looks pretty. Walked her to the red ob to sit with the dodos and that's it for the morning, time to find food irl.

So the gf and I talked about it and decided that we were gonna buy ark on steam finally and start over instead of continuing to play on xbox. So bought it for both our machines. Downloaded and went to play and the graphics were awful, continuously crashed all the time. The lag was awful for the gf and it was never really an issue when playing on the xbox servers. Did some troubleshooting this morning and tried the fixes that I found online (verify files, delete other files and then verify) and we have decided this is nonsense so were going back to our orignal game (luckily i kept all out stuff and didn't give any of it away yet) and will be requesting a refund later today. Also jumped back into our game in Valguero just in time to see all of our dinos jump an allo that got into our base somehow and I put up a windmill that I found in a drop just for fun cause I have 4 of them. just need to add the generator now.

You don't 'need' to have a generator, windmills on Valguero don't turn off at night like they do on the island. But it is nice to have an emergency backup in case anything happens to the turbines.

Ya I know but part of me wants to some how make one of everything and if I'm gonna have a generator it needs to be hooked up to at least one of the windmills. I want all the things to look like they belong together and I didn't just throw a bunch of crap around just because lol

I feel your pain, when I made my little hatchery on Valguero I put a generator in the corner of the air con room. I wired it up to my cable system in case I need it but so far I haven't had to switch it on. Power to air cons, fridges (food and cryo) and chem bench is supplied by the 4 turbines on the roof.

if you want the power grid to work properly too, you have to run a line into the geny and a line out of the geny without any connected lines in-between, else it may break your power grid, plus all lines after the geny aren't restricted to the 20 something distance length for power,  so windmill -> strait cable -> attach geny -> cable out from geny -> your power grid.  Don't have any other connections to the windmill.

Dodorex Mission Update

Decided to change tact and throw caution to the wind. Thought I would try to over power the dodorex with gigas. I went with the portable tek transmitter technique, dont have a timer on structure pick up on the server so can throw it down and pick it up again and means I am not dealing with cryosickness from cryopods. Thought I would take a deino or two along for the bleed, just incase.

Found the dodorex pretty quickly on the first night of looking which was a surpise, funnily enough just a stones throw away from my base down Spino river. Got the transmitter down close by and downloaded my 4 best gigas as well as 2 deinos, saddled them all up and went in. It was over quickly. The deinos died as quickly as I expected them to. Unfortunately all my gigas died alot fast than I thought they would. I thought I might get them to survive one more fire breath from the dodorex but alas nope. RIP Oceanus, Atlas, Eos and Mnemosyne, you fought well. The dodorex was showing signs of blood so it was probably closer than I thought. Was especially gutted to lose Oceanus, he was my main giga and the goodest of boys. Thankfully I got the saddles back. Sorry Whiskey and Sierra, RIP too but you're easier to replace than the gigas with like a 30 minute maturation timer. Sure our rates are much better than official but going to have to go through the 6 hour raise time imprinting the next batch of gigas always does suck haha.

Been busying myself with building projects. Made a start on putting a roof on the river base but may need to extend some foundations, haven't worked with the triangle pieces that much and didn't anticipate the issue with angles for the sloped roofs. I got some vaults made and placed in my warehouse which is slowly becoming a tower. Made the dino gates and created a dino pen at the river base, which was much needed as I saw a 145 paracer which was red with an all over smattering of purple and black. I named the new paracer Cruor as it looks like a bruised blood clot, glad I parked a quetz on the top of the volcano loaded with taming supplies and my only platform saddle. Dino wiped the island to get more skeletal dinos to craft the last skins and emotes, gonna miss the 5 wild gacha clause though.

Tried to tame a titanosaur with a stolen Mek, but I think I need the cannon attachment thing.  Sword didn't seem to be doing much.

Culled some more newborn wolf cubs.  Down to the last attempted combo of stats and color, and RNG has not been on my side.  Once I get the final line going, I can upgrade the guard dogs at all of my bases.

Just made a bunch of mannequins and am currently going through my stockpile of flak armor from my gachas.  I'm going to pay homage to the terra cotta soldiers.

Started by hatching our 3 Deino and saw that I had 6 hour till they needed care so thought I would take a nap. Woke up at 1 and saw that they were fully developed and ready to go! Thank you extra life event! So decided to hatch our Rex and Yuty as well. Got them hatched and cuddled and walked when they need it and got the saddles made. When I log in next they will be ready to be taken out. Also took advantage of the 8x harvesting and got materials to make more gates and doors to block off the upper area. Got our greenhouse built with 24 med plots and 300% greenhouse and fully irrigated. Also took advantage of quick tames and got a couple decent leveled ptera (one in holiday colors that looks like carnage) and the opposite gender of ones we already have so once the barn is finished we can start breeding. Side note I knew having a greenhouse would be nice but I had no idea how easy it is to just go up and get what I need for taming so quickly and always having a ready supply. It’s a game changer.

did not do much, i have bben busy making a music video in ark for media arts subject. it pretty good so far. i wanted to do something like what syntac is doing on his latest patreon server. the server is a medieval like server where dinos are not tamable but mammals are. anyway me and riley joined the server over at his on hos 2 new gaming PCs. we started off pretty well. i wanted to do somehting like that on my singal player PS4 world so i made it so i cant tame any dinos. so i spent 3 hours yesterday collecting enough narco berries to make 100 tranq arrows and 100 narcs to feed tames. i them made metal tools and flak armour and journeyed up to the snow above viking bay. i builf a 1x2 stone hut and placed a bed inside. made a 3x3 pen with a dino gate. placed railing on the stai ramp and the top of the pen to make the ramp more effective. i am out looking for wolves to tame and i spot a pack of 5 dwolves. i spyglass them. a 150, 135, 140, 120 and 145. so i lure them in one by one. took 20ish arrwos for 150 to go down. i killed a sheep near the castle and fed it. an hour i have 4 wolves fully tamed. i travel back down and find a nice orange and black rex. it is also a lvl 145. i am soo sad as i cant tame it. i miserably make my way back down to base. i paired them as they all had a desired stats. the health and melee were breeding and the stam and weight were breeding. once each one had  apup that was of oposite gender i bred them. got twins on the first go with the good stats and they were male and female. so i build a wood pen and left them breed while i watch some netflix and youtube. been watching a show called the 100 lately. 100 teenagers are sent down from a space station to see if earth is hospitible after a  nuclear war. the animals are all mutated. i like those kind of series where earth is apocalyptic. i return and find the pen flooded with pups. so i kill the ones that dont have mutations and i have 10ish left. i got red body and red socks. both were health mutations. combined the muts and imprinted the pup to 100%. my wolf dose alot. i am deciding on whether to use thylas or wolves as my main travel mount. wolves for their general usefulness, although thylas are more traverse-able  and can climb. i called the wolf Red Dog after a famouse aussie dog. i plan to expand the base tomorrow. i cal tell ya now. till i get a beaver or a horse collecting berries will be a pain.

Worked on the babies more today, had as many out as i could get in the baby pen

E7F064DEA4A8DF7E9928418DCCA24BCA3DDB10EE

but... i was rather bored sitting around waiting for imprint timers... so I grabbed my rifle and my tranq darts, and a stack of superior kibble... and set out on a mission to tame a couple anky...  tamed a piggy cause it was black, two iguanodon, two ptera, and a couple anky:

38C3FAB9D588158A51BC0488181CFA5E7750C5C2

I have a few good high level colored anky's already, and i think im gonna mix n' match with some of these guys for a breeding project to get better stats and more color mixes.  The other anky's will sit quietly tucked away in a cryofridge till a new player comes along my beach who needs one again. it'll make them happy.

We hatched one that looked that like. She is a beast! Jealous of the other colors you go though

i went through a good 100 eggs to get 20 good rexs that looked nice color wise, but im not done there, i still have to make a second set of rexs  with the new stats for the island to replace the old boss rexs, got a few nice 1007 melee / 1125 melee ones ranging from 23-29hp.  I'll need to down breed the levels on a couple as well.  just made another 20 eggs today and tucked them away in the fridge for further down the road, maybe the next holiday event :D

I had a pretty awful day, all in all.

I've been struggling for weeks to keep my footing on the PVP ORP Ragnarok server, but me and a friend (the one I was with before we merged with another tribe) have been fighting nonstop. There's no one really at fault. We are at the end of our rope with each other and we just can't tolerate one another anymore, I don't think. I can't exactly make her leave nor do I want her to stop enjoying the server, I just want to get away from her, and I can't do that while in the same tribe so I've had to accept that I need to leave. 

The thought of losing 10+ months of work however is devastating. I have 700+ creatures in an ARK Smart Breeder file I've mostly been the one to work on. Everyone has names. My lines are tangled up in hers, however, so I can't quite stay on the server. I am going to move to singleplayer/a non-dedicated world with my boyfriend. I have decided to use a temporary god character on a singleplayer Ragnarok to try to cheat/breed creatures with the same or similar base stats to the ones I had on the server. So far, I've successfully done this with the allosaurus I had. 

I plan to store them on Ragnarok, and whenever me and my boyfriend get a new creature, if I have some stored in the Ragnarok world, we can then bring them over to use. That way they don't entirely ruin our experience, but I can still work with them in an interesting setting. We've also been talking about adding some NPC mods to see if we can salvage something of a PVP experience.

It's a fun game, but man the way official started taking over my life and not to mention how easily drama with one person ended it, is devastating.

i suggest taking your tames u wnt to keep and unclaim them, then quickly leave the tribe and claim them. or depending on who the leader is you can kick them. i know i hard but it has to be done.

That was a good weekend for completing some of my goals actually. Dont get me wrong, these arent high level compared to people out there  but these are mostly clean lines just taken from my wild tames (the odd one has been bred from friends which were definitely mutated) but overall I just wanted to get them finished.

My Daeodons are now complete - born 285 

My Yuty is complete - born 301

Allos - born 295

Thylas - born 350

Anky - born 350

Doed - born 325

Basically, I had a lot of different stats across many tames so I wanted to get them all on one dino and as you can tell above they all worked out alright. Still didnt get any decent Ptera muts so I can only keeping on breeding, hatching, killing etc etc

So I am now in the process of doing our Tappys, Im expecting those to be around 285 when finished and will be a clean line, whilst my tribemate is doing his Troodons, Deins, Monkeys and other small dinos. 

**EDIT - and I finally got my first 190 event Wyvern - after 100+ hrs in previous events, I had even spent 6+hrs this time aroundbut my Poision finally arrived with decent born melee at 365. Shame it was brown, but the red and purple within the wings looks nice.
