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

Today I got another high level Rex at Carno island. Was having fun farming the island for a good bit and got lucky on a 145 Rex. I decided to bring it home and build a big raft made of stone to snuck him in there. I thought things were going as planned, well until I got attacked.... AGAIN. I didn't know this creatures existed and now im reminded of them, LEEDSICHTHYS. I knew i was in trouble when i was seeing big damage numbers on the raft that i built, so i tried as hard as i could to get as close to land as possible and it worked out for me somehow. 200+ hrs in and I still don't know that there are creatures like this in the game lol.

Today I started building an elevator to the workshop (which is built on a platform on a fairly high cliff, so the only ways to access it are on a flyer or on a land mount with big enough steps, like a rex) after realizing that I haven't added to the stairs for at least a month so it's unlikely that I'll ever finish them, and that it's pretty stupid of me to assume that I can ALWAYS rely on my flyers to get there. So far platform and 2 pieces of tracks done, about 10 more pieces to go.

I discovered Unofficial servers a couple weeks ago. 

Been taming and breeding rexes for the females/eggs so I can tame Quetzals.

As much as I love my server (I love it because of NO major taming/breeding/XP benefits) which means raising rexes takes a long time. I still truly enjoy the server compared to official servers where your shelf life is literally hours........

Looking forward to taming my first Quetzal ever, while trying to find time to play long enough to level my character.

My hours of farming Carno island finally payed off. Got an amazing Ascendant Longneck blueprint, now all I need is to craft it. Also saw 150 Rex and managed to put it in my taming pen there, however i didn't have my taming stuff so i had to return to my small established base about 5-6 mins away from Carno. Took me about 20 mins to get my stuff and return. When I arrived to where I placed him, he's not there anymore :( Might've died. I really wanted to tame him too.

#1 Why does farming Carno island get you the ASC longneck rifle? The cave? Im new to caves and such because usually play on official....

#2 Rex might have despawned, 20 minutes doesn't seem long enough to kill a lvl 150. I saw a 140 running around for about a week on my unofficial, before I saw him no more.....which is cool cause he was average stats - my server has spyglass+? Allows me to see stats before I knock it out.

Hey! I got it from the loot drops in there. It could net you good gear since it constantly drops purple-red loot drops in there. Cave drop also has a chance for you to net a good loot from that as well. I got purples only though on my cave, really unlucky. All my good ones came from the abundant loot drops coming from the sky in carno island. Also if there's no drops coming down on the island itself for a while, pay attention to the other spots across you. Yellows and reds constantly spawn as well on the snow biome near there and the forest area just south of carno. I only play single player so I haven't had anyone take the loot.

As for the Rex, it might've. I looked around the whole carno island but couldnt find him anymore :(

EDIT: I use vanilla btw so i dont really have mods on my playthrough. Spyglass+ seems fun tho.

Set up a singleplayer how you like it then go for an "Ultimate ARK" type play-through. I started a playthrough before Syntac even started that series but I've been having a blast. You play through the maps without transferring between them until you finish the bosses of that map and move on. The Island -> Scorched Earth -> Aberration -> Extinction -> Gen1 -> Gen2 -> The Center/Ragnarok/Valguero/Crystal Isles + Transfers open up between all maps.

Done it all before. Even did a no flyer play through.

On Valguero: tamed a doed (50 pre-tame, tamed perfectly with kibble), made some cementing paste and polymer, grabbed from a beacon the few stacks of sulfur that I transferred from SE. 

On Teonus (in singleplayer): finally somewhat figured out what I maybe possibly want my house to look like. It's a big step, because I'm really bad at figuring that out. Like, cool enclosures for various dinos? Easy! A garden? Simple! A house that looks like something a person could actually live in, and that DOESN'T look like a boring square box? Ehhh...

 >Gen2>Center>Rag>Val>CI>Other mods

Personally I just started playing, but I really started a year ago and don’t have much time to play, and I switched to PC recently, so I just started a Island, and I’ve wanted to play through like that since I learned there was story! Also I find many mods to be fun if your PC, like if you play with Upgrade Station+Creative Mode=99999 dmg assault riffle, then just go out and mow down critters.

Not a fan of upgrade station it makes finding better saddles and such way too easy

Sadly can't claim to have played ark today.. I did play another Dino game jp.. but I kept wanting to use ark controls and it got on my nerves. 

Tomorrow is planned.. I'm revisiting all maps and doing a boss run on each boss on the maps wondering how long it will take me. 

At some point I have to log into a game I hate to spend time with my niece doing some virtual babysitting whilst breaking a few blocks. Quarantine certainly changes things. ?

Tamed a pair of Yutyrannuses today, one got 340% melee, and the other poop stats lol. Preparing that Extraordinary kibbles so i could easily tame more dinos. While looking for Yutyrannus along the way, I got an amazing Ascendant Allo saddle. I also found another hated creature, freakin Purlovia. While i was running around with my Thyla in that snow biome, I died twice because i got clipped by them while being chased by wolf packs. Good thing my thyla's strong enough to take care of them while I went my way back. That Yuty adventure was stressful, but FUN!

Today: big metal run, small metal run, small obsidian run, couple circles over the base with doed, big keratine/beaver dam run with Nightshade. All to gather the materials for the elevator.

The lotta melting and polymer making, and finally the elevator is DONE! And it's awesome! Fast! Shiny!

At the moment it's useless, though because I haven't yet connected the small platform made of stone ceilings to which the elevator arrives with the cliff platform where the workshop is, but that's not hard - just a few more ceilings, stairs and pillars, MUCH easier than building the elevator was.

Oh, also, while I still don't know where Dark Hopper was, at least now I know that he WAS - as in, he starved today, it appeared in the log.

Was planning on taming a 150 bear which I spotted on Ragnarok red woods by the red obelisk. Prepared a bunch of tranq darts, and gathered lots of honey. 

I flew over to the bear and landed. Then BAM an Ichthyornis swoops down and steals the stack of darts. Im about the switch bullets on my rifle to shoot down the thieving gull and BAM, a pegomastix snatches my rifle.

I chase down the pego and BAM I get stunned by a microraptor. BAM the ichty returns and steals my honey. By the time I manage to kill the micro, all the stolen stuff are gone.

I return to base empty-handed and pissed. Then I log off.
