So what did you do in ARK today?


Recommended Posts

I actually didn't do to much this morning or last night. Just kinda ran around and played with having a Rex and an Yuty which is amazing fun! Those two together make quick work of so much except the bone trike. That thing didn't do much damage to the rex but man it took a beating. I did loose one of our pteras this morning due to compys starting a fight with it while I got a drop and that caused splash damage to some trikes who ganged up on it and killed it. Which caused me to go back and get Bubbles (our rex) and eat every trike I saw along the beach. Did get our dodo house built and as soon as the wall around our area are done we will start to fill it. Also have some plans on how to set up a crafting room/incubation room also just need to get the dinos that are in the area I want to build in out. Im also trying to figure out how to build in a spot that is SUPER not level at all (slanty cliff face on the beach in Valguero) and I know in theory how to do it and I've watched a few youtube videos on how to do it I just need to try and it and learn from doing it.

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

If you build it with ceilings on pillars I would recommend Aaron longstaff on youtube, just to show how to stop the pillars poking up through the floor. And his builds are pretty amazing.

I have copied his 300%green house build which is amazing and his dodo coop is what I built this morning. And I agree they are awesome. I think were gonna try and do his A-frame house at the top of the cliff here soon.

I want to copy elements of his pagoda build when I build my zoo on Valguero. I want to build it on a flatspot so I can have a foundation floor with aircons on for hatching the eggs that will fall down through the open floors. With argies and/or owls on the roof and other smaller dinos maybe on the other floors all parked around the holes.

My week off for Halloween has ended and as I am back at work now my play time has been greatly reduced. I have dino wiped extinction and scorched and whoosed around on a griffin to spawn in as many event colours as I can, I can try to snag some of them on my limited taming excursions. I still need to wipe Valguero, I stayed away from there because of the overspawns, and I might wipe rag again and hope for a higher lvl event griffin.

So far I've just stared at a download progress screen and watched the Flintstones.  Might name my next few hatchlings Pebbles and Bam Bam.

Once I can actually play the game again, I'm going to hit the argy and direwolf breeding facilities and then work on my terra cotta soldiers (mannequins) project at one of my decoy bases.

Haven't really done a whole lot the last couple days. I have built the dodo coup that my girlfriend wanted but haven't moved the dodos up there yet because our giant wall isn't finished yet. Did manage to find a couple bone jeboas that made me happy cause now our tamed ones are in their bone skeleton. Killed a few bone steggos to get their bones for event stuff. STill need to get a few more bones so I can get the jason mask but I'm sure I can get enough by the 8th. Other than that I've just been kinda moping around trying to work up motivation for the next big build. I love the building but I hate the resource gathering. Specially now that the 8x event is over.

Cyropodded up some of my scorched colour tames and took them to the island to sit in a fridge until the zoo is built. On my return to scorched, to gather up some stragglers, I whooshed over to the wyvern scar and picked up a 130 lightning egg, left the 2 lvl 40 fire eggs, and on my way back to base the game crashed and I found myself staring at the dashboard. Reloaded and respawned in a hut by green ob and the ob was empty, log says I downloaded a griffin, so I take an argy over to my pillar base and swap out for a wyvern. I go looking for my Griffin and maybe my equipment, log doesn't say I died so not hopeful about finding a bodybag, didn't find either but I did find the 130 egg in the nest I took it from.

This has happened before and I know I have been arked again. Last time I lost my favourite coloured and (at the time) only high level fire wyvern, I shrugged that loss off and carried on as best I could. This time however I am seriously contemplating spawning in and force taming another griffin to replace my loss, would spawn one at the same level mine was pre-tame, I don't want to cheat but I liked my griffin and I only have a couple. My main concern is that if I cheat one in and tame it it could be easier to cheat again. I would just go to rag and tame another one but time is more constrained now so I guess I will just have to mull it over and decided by tomorrow, think I may get an hour on in the afternoon.

This is why I don't play single player because I know for 100% sooner or later something is going to frustrate me and I will totally cheat my butt off.

I have been quite good with myself, I did 'ghost' last week to claim 3 zomdodos that spawned in the mesh. I would play online but sometimes I can only manage a couple of hours a week or month with real life commitments, I know decay timers mean I would never make any progress, and joining a tribe would be hard with my casual game play, and no mic.

Been working on raising my replacement gigas. On Sunday I got them 50% matured before cryoing them, I was working at my computer desk anyway so I had Ark on in the back ground. Fast forward to today and I uncryoed the adolescent gigas to finish up rasing them. To my surprise it turns out the imprinting server setting mechanic has changed since the last past and instead of imprinting every 15 minutes it was every 15 seconds. Obviously finishing imprinting my gigas the final 50% was much easier than I thought tonight. 

And like any good Ark player I just had to check it wasnt a bug, could have been linked to cryosickness when I uncryoed all the gigas at once. So I hatched up four more deinos for my ever expanding boss team just to check. Hit 100% imprinting before each deino hit 5% maturation, yeah imprinting was broken. Been naming my deinos after the phonetic alphabet and now I have so many I have started naming them after the greek alphabet. Finally while not wanting to take too much advantage of the situation (this feels a bit too easy) I decided this was a good time to finish up rasing some reapers I had neglected in cryo for months.

nice job, sadly all my wolves (Along with a bunch of other dinos) vanished somehow from the cryofridge during the last patch.  so I have no more :( had some really pretty ones too.

I have successfully recreated all of my important allosaurus, argentavis, ankylosaurus, and archaeopteryx creatures from the official PVP ORP server. With S+'s help, I expect to be able to fully recreate my entire roster of animals, at least the ones I need to continue my breeding projects, but it's going to take some time. My boyfriend and I have come up with a way to allow me to integrate them into our playthrough without ruining our experience. We must tame at least one high level animal of comparable level first before we can bring any animals of the same species over, and have somewhere to safely keep them (so, likely metal or at least stone base with walls, and a cryofridge/cryopods). And, with my college schedule, work, etc, my personal boosted rates making the game a little easier and less time consuming are a welcome change to the toiling grind of official. Although official is not difficult at all when you have a tribe and everyone is doing their own job, had I chosen to stick with it and merely take my animals with me, it would have been just me doing all of it on official. And I wasn't about to have that.

So, recreating my animals for singleplayer/non-dedicated isn't so bad. Though I want to know who decided SpawnSetupDino command puts in domestic points... like seriously guys? You can't make it so it puts in wild points instead??

SpawnCustomDino <creature> <stats> <M/F (for the sex of the animal)> would be perfect. So, if I wanted an allosaurus with 32 wild health points and 40 wild melee points, but didn't care about anything else, all I'd have to do is type "SpawnCustomDino (allosaurus blueprint path) "Health=32,MeleeDamageMultiplier=40" "M"," and all the other attributes would be determined randomly. Important to not make level a parameter here, since levels are determined by the points in the creature. Adding "forcetame" to the end of that would of course make the stat distribution randomized somewhat again due to taming effectiveness, but there could be a way for the game to make the taming effectiveness zero in these situations. Idk, I found the lack of an option to spawn a creature with predetermined wild stats very annoying, but cheating in creatures until I get a desired stat then "SetBabyAge 1"'ing and "slomo"'ing my way through breeding is going alright enough.

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. 

You can unclaim or upload to an obi to keep dinos when switching tribes. You might be able to just breed breeders to take away in order to untangle the lines.

Still haven't done much except going on a metal collection session. Tonight/tomorrow going to move what I call the Carnobarn out (Yuty, Rex, Allo, 3 Deino, a Raptor, two argy and two pteras) and either move them to the top part of where were trying to build our new area or move them out to where the other dinos are at and turn that into a hatchery/workshop area. Tamed a male moth to go with our female this morning and picked up some decent blueprints in drops. Also the gf found a gave on the far west side of the map and she wants to go explore that so I made up two sets of metal armor and gonna make some guns and other goodies so we can go in and explore it and see what we find!

Friday night so time to chill. Decided that I had put off the Snow Cave duo for long enough. I geared up for the hard snow cave first. The plan was similiar to last time use rexes but this time I took in three of my boss theris with veggies cakes as well. The attempt went swimmingly and rage quit levels of rage at the same time.

I deployed a rex in the first chamber and worked my way through to the first choke point. Here I deployed the three theris and worked the way through the masses of bears, purlovias and wolves to where I could redeploy my rex.  Made it further through the cave, was a bit of a hassle. The theris kept getting snagged up on the crystals and the pathing was an issue, as slways lol. Made it to the room before the artifact and that is where the fun began. I got wedged between my rex and the roof of the cave. No matter what I did I couldnt break free, tried whisting the dinos away, couldnt, tried cryoing the rex, couldnt reach with that tried waiting but nothing. Ended up soding it and breaking out the admin commands to ghost out. At which point I couldnt deactivate the commands, I hate using those sets of commands for that reason, kept falling through the world, unless I used the fly command or sat on a dino. Made the rest of a cave a nightmare. But I got to the artifact, grabbed 2 and made my escape with out being overrun and got back to base. Suicide by organic polymer sorted my admin ghost problem. 

Finished up by going for the Artifact of the Skylord. Geared up with a set of Tek armour to cheese the holes in the cave. I hate this particular cave. To be fair the cave is actually a peice of cake but I cant stand the insta death crevases, cant stand those thing in any game tbh feels so cheap. Got two artifacts and got back to base. Finally my Island Artifact display from my recent adventures is complete. On to the rest of the bosses now !

Deinonychus Boss Squad Trial 1

Finally got my act together and preped up a squad of Deinonychus to take on the gamma broodmother. Uncryoed 19 and put all 50+ levels into health, I figured with so little health they would need all the hp they could get and I assumed melee didnt really matter as I would be rellying on the bleed effect. Saddled them all up with mastercraft saddles I preped up ages ago. Grabbed a spare yuty out of cryo and teleported to blue obelisk and started the fight. To be honest I was convined this would be a flop, how wrong I was. They shredded her in about 5 minutes, it was actually insane, especially considering I am not convinced all 19 deinos were even attacking her. It was an easy 500 element. Teleported out and I checked over the deinos. The worst off one had only lost 1k health, alot had lost little to no health, not sure if the broodmother was to busy trying to get to me on my yuty she wasnt really focusing on the deinos or what. In comparison my yuty lost a good 20k health, mostly from the swarming araneo. May need to try other bosses and see what the limit is, got a feeling the limit might be hit very easily.

I must admit there something pleasing about a boss squad full of Deinonychus being led by an essentially over grown Deinonychus.
