Everything You Want To Know About v256!

Recommended Posts

Hi Survivors! 

Since this patch is absolutely packed with new features and content, I thought it might be helpful to you guys to lay it all out as cleanly as I can. Here’s what is in v256!

New Dinos!

Equus:

  • Prefers Troodon Kibble (1 Troodon Egg, 1 Savoroot, 2 Rockarrots, 2 Mejoberries, 3 Fiber) or Rockarrots to tame.
  • New active taming dynamic: feed Equus and then mount, pay attention to the bottom left corner and press E when prompted to calm (tame) Equus with food.
  • Saddle inventory works as a portable mortar and pestle.
  • Craftable lasso in the inventory when saddle equipped.
  • Use lasso to catch creatures and players (similar to grappling hook), can only be used while mounted on Equus.
  • Special wild Unicorn Equus! Extremely rare and tameable in the same way as regular Equus. Only one exists on the map at a time.

Leedsichthys:

  • Approach Leeds to grab fish meat or prime fish meat using (E).
  • Aggressive towards rafts when they enter it’s aggro range. If you get attacked, RUN!
  • Rare white version )alpha) of Leeds that is even larger than the normal Leeds.
  • Killing an alpha Leeds will get you a special cosmetic item called a Captain’s Hat (found in the creatures inventory).

Ichthyornis:

  • Prefers Pegomastax Kibble (1 Pego Egg, 1 Raw Prime Fish Meat, 1 Citronal, 2 Mejoberries, 3 Fiber) to tame.
  • Aim your crosshair at any fish, dodo, or compy and toss your gull at it (double tap F). The gull will circle around and then attack the prey.
  • Two modes: Hunt, it will kill and eat what it catches, and Hunt and Retrieve, it will kill the prey and then bring it back to you.
  • Fish caught using the gull gives the fish a buff (particle effect) that causes the fish to give more prime fish meat.

Iguanodon:

  • Prefers Microraptor Kibble (1 Microraptor Egg, 1 Longrass, 3 Fiber, 2 Mejoberries, 1 Prime Meat Jerky) to tame.
  • Change from bipedal (attack) to quadruped (run) mode using right click.
  • Iguanodon has near infinite stamina when in quadruped mode.
  • Converts fruit in its inventory into seeds using radial menu.

New TEK!

Tek Underwater Bases:

  • Two new structure pieces: Vacuum Compartment and Vacuum Compartment Moonpool.
  • Vacuum Compartment: a general square structure piece used for building bases, choose between the window style or the solid wall/ceiling/floor using the radial menu (freeze/unfreeze).
  • Moonpool: A cube with a door at the bottom that allows the player to enter and leave the base.
  • When powered (via TEK Generator) these structures allow a player to live and breathe inside of them. 

TEK Teleporter:

  • Powered by Element Shards, which are made by shredding Element in the Replicator.
  • Teleports you and your creatures from one teleporter to another.
  • The cost of the teleport is based on the size of the creature.

Tek Power Generator:

  • Powered by Element, this powers structures within it’s radius without the use of cables or outlets.

Tek Mosa Saddle:

  • Press CTRL to equip the gun while riding the Mosa, and fire with left click while Element is in the Mosa’s inventory to power it. 
  • You must know the engram in order to use this saddle.

Aquatic & Amphibious Creature Breeding!

  • Underwater eggs cannot be picked up by players, as they cannot survive out of water. So plan ahead! 
  • Underwater eggs will incubate in water at all times, no need to monitor temperature.

Total Inventory Menu Redesign!

  • It looks way prettier now!
  • Press E to use, equip, or consume an item (no more remote use).
  • Press Q to toggle item names and item types on/off.
  • Right-click on items for more options and to learn the hotkeys to make your inventory management easier.

Lots of New Sounds!

  • New creature sounds for: Dodo, Raptor, Quetzal, Parasaur, Rex, Trike, Pteranodon, Dilo, Direwolf, Compy, Dung Beetle, Argent, Pachy, and Mammoth.
  • New inventory sounds, building sounds, crafting sounds, female character sounds, and a couple items/weapons.

Flyer Nerf!

  • A long time in the making, air combat is now being brought in-line with overall nerfs to things such as health, weight, speed, and stamina.
  • Stamina: across the board 50% decrease to base stamina (not including moth) and per-level stamina increase amount.
  • Increased stamina recovery time for flyers.
  • Don't allow the recovery stamina in the air if creature is being ridden or if a player is standing on it.
  • No speed upgrade. This clears the existing level-up speed stats and gives the points back to you to spend elsewhere.
  • Made passenger carrying weight scaling 1.0 for flyers.
  • Increased wyvern elemental stamina cost. 
  • Riding speed of flyers decreased by 10-30%.
  • Decreased quetz per-level hp.
  • Added a 3 second cooldown to Ptera barrel roll.

1 New Hairstyle and 1 New Facial hairstyle! 

  • Male and female variants.
  • Ponytail (hairstyle) and Mutton Chops (facial hair).

20+ new Explorer Notes on the Island!

Other Changes!

  • Player invulnerability after Eel attack increased to 5 seconds.
  • Scuba tanks now provide oxygen underwater even when a player is offline.
  • Underwater mines now respect enemy foundation radius.
  • Underwater mines increased damage by 33%, increased targeting range by 100%, increased movement speed by 100%.
  • Cluster grenades no longer fragment if they've been destroyed by damage.
  • Vault health and physical size has been decreased.
  • Speed buff gained from Oxygen stat on dinos decreased by 80%.
  • Tek Structures now give appropriate insulation on Scorched Earth.
  • Turrets can now be placed underwater. Underwater turrets will not target anything above water.
  • Sheep now have a "Slaughter" option when you have a club, sword, hatchet etc equipped, also works on PvE.
  • C4 is limited to one per dino.

no need to be a jerk about it, was trying to offer help.....geesh

Not being a Jerk, I just want the simple question answered by someone who knows the answer. Also its pretty common sense to wipe dinos on new patches.

So, if one person tames a unicorn, does that mean no one else can get one on that server until it dies?

And in regards to PvE, can no one else tame one ever? Considering you cannot kill other players' dinos in PvE and thus would be unable to kill the unicorn in hopes of spawning another one for yourself.

Or does the "only one" limit only count for wild unicorns specifically? Is it a temporary tame?

It´s the same rule as Megalosaurs, there can only be 4 wild Megalosaurs at any time on the server.

Every move this game makes costs the player more time.  Now flyers are slowed down and I assume Quetzal stamina recovery requires landing.

Great game devs, but the cumulative effect of these time thieving changes makes me want to turn it off.  A game is meant to be entertainment, not a second job.

Thats what Im really worried about, 500 stamina on a wyvern is literally nothing and basically makes it useless, when I first got mine it only had around that and you could barely fight since you had like 1 breath attack and that was it. Since I play unofficial I hope the owner can not enable these nerfs which to me at least seem a little heavy-handed

Thanks WC, you officially killed the Game, now any flight is slow and sluggish and boring like nothing else. Spending an hour just flying from farm location to base and back yeah that's happening NOT. PTs are completely useless could just as well remove them from game entirely.

Qs although you did not change the weight, too slow for any real use, you also nerfed Eagles so now I wonder how you in your minds imagine people are even going to get wyvern eggs anymore they cant escape the flocks of wyverns chasing them anymore.

And it kills any reason to even get a wyvern in the first place and by that it also kills scorched earth which has nothing special except wyverns.

This patch may be to ARK What NGE was to starwars galaxies back in the day, do not be surprised if the Exodus begins. I lost all confidence in you guys just from the fact that you actually tested these speeds and somehow agreed that seemed ok... its beyond belief.

Well good raptoring Job Wildcard, once again you've gone half-assed and "fixed" one area of game play only to completely raptor over all the other aspects... Flyer nerfs are a perfect examples. Great, you "fixed" PvP flyers. But now how exactly is someone supposed to haul goods back to their base? Or go try to get Wyvern Eggs in the trench? Oh wait, you raptored Wyverns too so there's no point in having them any more! raptor you, raptor this game, and raptor Steiglitz.

well I didnt think it would be that bad.  100% speed on a argent is pretty bad.   I was expecting the cap to be 150%

100% speed of Argy makes this animal completely useless as a mean of transport. I would get irritated constantly with such pathetic speed!

Ok here,s what I noticed the wyverns , that are hell of a work to get and raise now are slow as an effing quetz, barely any stamina to hold a fight. Jesus it's a wyvern not a flocking bird, they are suposed to be fast man what the cookies..., I paid for that dlc because -loves- any type of dragon , and what i liekd the most is that they were FAST and not a slow weak flying snail -.-

On a side note how are normal people suposed to farm wyvern eggs with teh speed lock ? LOL , I mean I already have my own happy lizard family but what about the new people? *shrugs*
