We need a TLC for all baby models.

Recommended Posts

When you think of TLC, you think of remaking a certain dinosaur's model or attributes. But there's one major problem that hasn't been fixed since Ark's inception, and that is baby models. For most species, it's simply a scaled down version of the adult model and looks completely atrocious. It really kills game immersion and makes breeding less rewarding.

 

Like how are baby models like this acceptable?

Look at games like Prehistoric Kingdom with smooth transitions from a baby to an adult dinosaur. BaryonyxOntogeny.jpg

Will multiplying  the amount of models of breedable dinos by 3 ( baby, juvie, Adolecent, etc.) impact the game in a negative way?

 

It's not adding any models, it's just changing the original baby models-there are a few baby models in Ark that are fine (rex for example), they just need to fix the rest of the cast.

 

In prehistoric kingdom, the model of the dinosaur dynamically changes as the dinosaur matures, just like in Ark. The only difference is that in PK the models are top knotch, you'll have baby trikes/mammoths start with no tusks and gradually grow them and have their body proportions change as they mature.

 

Most of arks' baby models are a complete joke.

Your point being? Every game is different.

It is adding models... the baby models for creatures like the Mammoth would need to be completely reworked. Right now the system works like those little kids toys you put in water that gradually grow over time. What you're suggesting would require models that gradually add features like tusks, otherwise it will look really ugly.

My point being that dinosaur growth looks and feels way better the way  PK did it, and Ark developers could learn from that.

It's not adding any new models more than the current babies are. If you look at baby ankylosaurs, they are just the adult model that's shrunken down, but the tail is a lot stubber.  The model essentially morphs until it reaches the adult ankylosaur model-this is the same for every single animal in Ark and is already implemented in game. So if you consider that a different model then sure, it would require adding a few more models.

 

Regardless, I'm not sure why you're so fixated on that. All it would take is some effort on the part of the devs and it would make give breeding a much nicer look and feel to it.

Not fixated on it, just pointing out that in order for certain things like tusks and horns to be absent without the baby looking absolutely ridiculous, there does need to be new models. I'd much rather see breeding made less tedious and time consuming before it starts looking better, it's almost unbearable for half the creatures in the game.
