Cryopods Craftable In Fabricator/Drops (added)

Suggestion

Posted (edited)

But a high lvl to unlock them like 90. Small tribes have no chance to get them otherwise and the big tribes just get stronger with them

Edit: Thanks WC for doing it, if someone can't see the Cryopod Blueprint in the Drop you probably need to unlock the engram first.

As a PVE Console player, the cryopods are an awesome addition to the game. 

They have been a huge help in many ways. 

  • They help cut lag by decreasing the number of dinos in a base. 
  • They help with taming. Some dinos were a nightmare to get home. 
  • They help with breeding. Being able to compare the stat's via cryopods prior to tossing them out and breeding them is a bit easier. 
  • They are easy to toss to another player if you are making an exchange, loaning a dino, or are handing if off to a tribemate in need. 

And personally, I think they are best suited for the fabricator for the following reasons;

  • They do not cost element, element shards, or element dust to craft as with many other tek tier items.
  • They are not learned as a tek tier item. 
  • They assist with cutting back on lag, as listed above.

That being said, I do agree that for some, keeping it as an "end game" item may increase the drive to include the item as such. 

As a compromise, this would be one of the items I would suggest there be a server setting, or a game ini line of code that could be used to alter where an item is crafted for those that wish to make that adjustment.

yep i agree 1000%  i have 2 neighboors who are semi new to ark on pve.  there freaking base is hugeeeee and they got about 300 tames in there yard.  lags my whole area to hell and back xD and its 100% the base size and tames out is 100% due to them not having access to cryopods.  i can make them now for them but like now i have to spend my time doing that and the base is already built.  if they knew it wasnt gonna be till they had a replicator before they had pods they said they wouldnt have built that huge.

  its a giant fully enclosed 2000 stone wall if not more dino pen with a behemoth gate with 100 of tames jammed in it.  which i dont blame them , without pods you need tons of space for tames.  if they could get pods by leveling and buying an engram on the island my server wouldnt  be  such a laggy mess.  i could make pods all freaking day every day and not be able to cover the map.

and before pods it was so bad on that server if an event came you had to shoot dilos and dodos to be able to hatch or tame anything xD pods are the greatest thing brought to ark in a game functionality and quality of life way.  it should not be walled off behind a replicator and a extinction transfer.. which i hate transfering my char.  i just have multiple chars cause i know at least 5 people of crazy high lvl that have lost chars that way.  just make it an all map engram.  high level so not every bob can have them at lvl 3 but fabricator made.  that alone would make ark run much smoother especialllly on highly polulated maps like island.

You need to own extinction to do this though, not everyone supports dlc or can afford or does own it, let's not judge them for it.

Not everyone is able to quickly jump to extinction to spend 40 minutes looking for a blue drop just to make 5 or 6 cryopods on there other server where they've just started up and don't have cryo pods or a replicator but have the engram

They have to make money somehow to keep supporting the game and one of extinctions main features is cryopods. It's either DLC or Microtransactions witch we all should know by now how well that works out for games.

I play solo pvp main official an can get cryos easy, even with all the mega tribes and alliances. 40 mins on getting one of the most op things in the game isn't all that bad IMO.

Honestly they don’t even need to be cryopods, it could be a new item that serves the same purpose, something new that is craftable but doesn’t require raiding bosses, but make them harder to create, to keep some balance, I wouldn’t mind farming for a while and making 2 or 3 And be set.

You can do blue orbital drops for easy cryopods. Let's not make the game to easy.

Sure, but you usually get what 2?  Each orbital drop takes a decent amount of time as well.  I'd be fully in support of having them craftable in a terminal if folks are against using the fabby.  Just something else besides the replicator.  I'm a small tribe looking to keep to a very small footprint and the replicator is huge and it doesn't make sense to need one just for cryopods.

Coming back to your answer again and let you know about my experience last night.  Playing on Small tribes server and friend and I tamed a couple of owls and went after a blue orbital drop.  Another guy said he was there first, ok cool. Off to find another one.  Found it now working on taking it out.  2 guys come over with Mana's and kill us both and our newly tamed owls.  This is the issue in a hostile PVP environment with getting cryopods out of blue drops.  They just take too long to complete and you are at risk of getting murdered while trying to get them.  With the Parasaur meta of people carying those around to find hidden bases you really need Cryopods early game just to keep from getting off-lined and there is absolutely no where to hide your tames.  by allowing folks to at least make them in terminals small tribes have a shot at surviving because at least in PVP no it definitely would not be too easy.

Let's not make changes. There is a viable market for endgame players and I have yet to see anyone gauge others. I have seen as low as 40 Ingots per cryopod. I do believe the status quo is fine. Also there is incentive for a player to purchase extinction which helps the longevity of the game. Also if you don't have a replicator ---- > MAKE FRIENDS and you will certainly enjoy the benefits of bringing your mats and crafting there.

Don't you need extinction anyway to learn the engram?

This is true as it stands right now. But you can go to extinction, learn the engram then go back to you own server, a lot of extinction servers are super toxic and kite happy on PvE so there is a lot of people who are forced not to play on them as a result

But on PVE it isn't that hard to unlock the replicator engram, plenty of people host free boss runs(me included). By level 90 you should be able to get your own replicator or buy them from other people fairly easy.

I totally forgot that there was not a blueprint for cryopod or cryofrodge when I made the initial statement
