Anarki

So what did you do in ARK today?

Recommended Posts

What did I do today?

Well our official server is being attacked, by people who are possibly cheating using aim bots.

So I went to obelisk, it told me I had to wait half an hour to upload items that I pulled from a chest.

I sat in a chair for an hour with the items in my inventory.  I went to the same obelisk.  I was unable to upload again.  I looked it up and any inventory change such as spoiling food resets it.

I went back to base, I emptied spoiliable items and sat in a chair for an hour.

I went back to the obelisk again, I was only able to upload 90% of my stuff.  The kibble and eggs couldn't be uploaded, had a 33 minute timer n them.

So I went back to base to sit in chair for 30 minutes.  I went back to obelisk after that 30 minutes.  My items had 32 seconds left on them.  I waited.  I watched.  2 seconds left. 1 second left. 40 minutes left.  What.  Why?  What the .... ?

I got angry and went back to base to log off because Ark Upload system refuses to work right.

Thanks Wildcard, you're so great. you certainly stopped them cheaters.  Shown them who's boss huh?  Yea, them server raiders, griefers, cheaters, they all been shown who's da boss.  Slown them down big time!  Created the perfect protection against server raids!

That entire previous sentence was sarcasm, if you didn't figure that out.

But whatever.  So thats what I did today.  A large amount of nothing thanks to built in systems meant to make the game unbearable for legitimate players.

Anything that can spoil can only be transferred once. You have to merge it on top of a spoilage item that was made on the actual server to reset this and allow you to transfer it again.

This morning we built a small green house, only a 3x4 which gave us 3 of each advanced crop, although I only had enough fert for 1 of each, but Ill get the rest tomorrow. Then we continued working on the wall, getting it mostly done. We still need to even it out in spots.

Before quitting I took another look for a doed, and settled on a lvl 90, figured having a second one would be better then only one.

So since starting our island server I've been debating on adding a mod that adds aberration dinos to the island. But then an idea popped into my head, Ill just cluster the arberration server I've shut down but am still paying for. So i messaged my server provider and within 15 minutes they were clustered. So I wanted to keep my island toon and not my aberration toon (but I wanted my tames/stuff). So what I did was log into aberration with my island toon (deleteing my aberration toon) and had my wife log into aberration with her aberration toon and make my island toon tribe leader and i did the same to her.

My aberration base is set up with tek (from a mod that unlocked all tekgrams) I plan on keeping and using tek in aberration and only bringing it to the island when I unlock it there. So on aberration i built a tek transmitter for an easy way to transfer stuff between maps, since beacons are so tough to find. Then i transfered our 2 aberrant ovis, my wife's favorite bulb dog and my favorite shinehorn to the island and we logged off.

Its going to be interesting keeping 2 bases on differant servers going, especially keeping a tek generator going in aberration. But it is going to be nice taming the glow in the dark aberration creatures and bringing them to the island. 

Tomorrow we plan on finishing the wall and I may transfer over a few dinos and stuff from aberration.

I've basically done the same thing. I've got rag as my main play map, and just converted my other server from the island to aberration. Getting together some things to transfer over. Haven't ventured over yet, and won't till I get a decent spino on rag. Excited to "start over" again haha 

I have this plan for a tower defence style base...so planing and placement Is going to be key.  Lots of diligent scouring ahead! 

 

Tonight's plan 

Tame a hearty spino, fab up a simple prebuilt Tek "survival outpost"  then go out exploring and see what shenanigans we can get into.

Lol, I like the starting over aspect. . I'm avoiding temptation to transfer over too much from our base on aberration because I think it will take away from our island experience. Like we have a fridge full off eggs on aberration, but Im only taking ones from dinos I've already tamed on the island. I'm also going to hold off bringing any of my drakes, spinos or crabs over untill I've tamed a few rexes and spinos on the Island. We did grab one of our high lvl doeds from aberration, but we have a few of them on the island already so its fine, lol

Tomorrows report: "So i went ahead and transferred all my drakes, crabs, spinos and a full tek base with tek suits from Abberation..." xD

Temptation is killer lol. I could do a massive pre build of structures  on rag and bring it over but I'm keepin the aberration outpost as compact and efficient as possible (minus the tower defence base). I've played it on single player but not legit so I'd like to do this one right....my drake I had from single player was lost to a giga a while back and I need a replacement..but Ill work for this one this time. More pride in your tames and work. 

Keep up the discipline lol. If I get my spino killed once I'm on aberration I'm sol. Not transferring anything after I'm on. Keep that hint of survival spice lingering

Showed some restraint this morning, lol. My wife got an ascendent pump shotgun bp from a drop, which I could eaisly build us each one in my aberration base. I think i have over 6k organic polly in an s+ dedicated storage. But I didnt, decided to gather what I needed her which we will do Saturday.

 

So today we finished the wall. Then we tamed a mochops and decided to take it to the volcano to harvest rare flowers...but apparently mochops are bugged because it doesn't harvest anything even on wonder. It goes though the animations but collects nothing. But on the bright side, like I mentioned above, my wife got an ascendent pump shotty bp on the way to the volcano :) Then we needed to go on a meat run, took our sabres and came across a lvl 195 alpha raptor. Debated if we should try and we went for it. Halfway through the fight my wife glitched and got stuck in the ground so I soloed the last half of the raptor. My cat was getting really low on health and I was getting really nervous but the raptor finally dropped, and it had nothing of great value, i think some purple cloth and hide armor. We get my wife unstuck with admin commands and head home and cook the prime.

So our plans for tomorrow are to gather what we need to build 2 of the shottys and a bunch of ammo, and start working on a frog breeding/water pen. I think we are short about 1k obsidian to make the polly for them.

I was recently excluded from my normal classes and was put In a learning centre for a couple due to "behaviour" days and every time I had a lesson on one of the computers I would read this thread and I just enjoyed reading about peoples days on ark and it makes coursework much easier to do when I can take a break and read peoples goals and accomplishments during breaks. :P

Didnt do much last night, only got to log in and feed dinos. Was thinking of hatching a bunch of theriz.. but ill (hopefully) do that tonight. I need to make more saddles too. Lost 2 mc theriz saddles (4k hide, 2k fiber, 800 ingots 1.4k wood each) ill.probably do that while i hand feed. Ive developed a new love for the Chainsaw. I never used one before this playthrough and I have an Asc one at that. 1k hide per bronto.. going on a killing spree after work.

I didn't do much at all today,

got on my new argy which I tamed at the weekend, she's a real nice colour: all black with a red forehead, and killed some paracers and diplos to level it a bit while looking for alphas to kill on my 320+ pink mutated thyla. eventually found 135 alpha carno near my base so I flew back and hopped on my thyla and killed everything on the way to the carno and took quite a load of damage leaving me on about 5500 out of 11300 and killed it with about 990hp left and got nothing but a journeyman hatchet (I have an ascendant) and level 79 so I finally got a compound bow, crafted one and killed a galli. after that I fed my carnivores and put a wind turbine next to my house then logged off.

thx for reading :P

I'm so old, that we didn't have computers in the classrooms when I went to High School.  We actually took typewriting class on typewriters. back then, I was rushing home to play Pitfall on my Intellivision or  Lode Runner on my Apple IIe
