I have read there were arguments against this at some point for PVP, however for the sake of PVE, I think it is an excellent idea. I too have seen the massive dino count being stored directly near or on the obelisks as your images show. In some cases it has made the area very laggy and hard to maneuver around.

If not enabled when PVE gameplay is selected, then it would be a nice option or code line to have that could be turned off or on by the host. 

When they first had transmitters you could boss fight from them, but the problem was that there was no "tribe lock" like with a gate or a vault or anything else that you have to open.. you know kinda like dedicated storage right now... -.-

Anyway... so in PvP people were coming to other people's bases who had a transmitter and dinos around it and starting a boss fight to suck away that tribe's dinos (thus killing them)

So instead of putting locking mechanisms on the transmitter (kinda like the doors in Jurassic Park) they disabled boss fighting from the transmitter.  

They later added a lock and pin code to the transmitter but never turn boss fights back on.

You would figure they could make it a toggle like Flyer pick up and the other things they have in the server settings, then they can EASILY turn it on for PvE and leave it off in PvP if it causes some type of angst there.

This will be a buff for end game players (those with transmitter unlocked) however for the rest this is not gonna solve anything.

It would be more incentive to get to tek and more convention to farm element.

Slightly change in CoC regarding placing tames in and near obelisk would do.

Not really. Rules take forever to be enforced with tickets. And what would the punishment be. Ban? Dev wipe? Death of those dinos?

How can you get to tek if you cannot do bosses because your obe is plagued of tames. The root cause of the problem is that some people abuse, well, forbid that, dont try to circunvent the problem.

Also that nowadays nobody does a lot of farming of element outside of extinction. Just to have some spare for tek gen and so, but the real element farming comes from element veins on extinction: no artifact/trophy requirements, much more element/time invested.... 

Well, I dont know when was the last time you submitted a ticked, because in my experience I can say those tickets managed by enforcement team are resolved pretty fast.

Yes, death of those dinos.

There is always the beacons, which would be ok to start. But not a longterm solution.

 

Its better overall for the game if the devs find solutions to issues like this with game mechanics other than rules that take time to enforce after an infraction.

Well, beacons are imho for more experienced people. I use beacon when I do rockwell for instance. However for ppl not much experienced the beacons expire fast, the range of the teleport cannot be estimated until you activate it and then is just 20 secs, the terrain is not plain which makes collisions with players and dinos easier (leading to ppl not teleporting to boss arena) and you cannot move a pack of dinos from beacon to beacon.

More strict rules for placing tames in obelisk + bosses from transmitter would be ok for me.
But if only the transmitter I refer to my first post.

Yes i think the transmitter on official should be the same as the S+ one in that respect, making it an obelisk will make life much easier for larger tribes who have earned the transmitter. Don't get me wrong i frequently use the transmitter on every map especially aberration and being able to upload is incredibly helpful but on The Island, Ragnarok, The Center and Scorched earth there are always either dinosaurs or structures on the platform preventing our and other tribes dinos from entering the arena with more rexes because in boss battles such as the dragon every rex counts! The amount of times i have entered the Alpha Manticore boss battle and someone has left 2-3 jerboas and a couple other things on the platform meaning we are low on dinos and old mate who left it there is going to lose his dinos. The transmitter will help this problem

Besides my personal opinion that a teleporter makes more sense as it has the same terminal as found at an obelisk and also that the teleporter pad lays out the ring that creatures will be teleported in similar to how on an obelisk you have the outer metal ring of the obelisk foot pad as a marker for the range of the ring, you also have the transmitter taking up a sizeable chunk in the middle of the teleport circle

 

Then how does the game calculate what goes into the boss fight, at an obelisk only things that are touching the floor go in, but at a transmitter does everything go in or things on the floor or on a ceiling or foundation? Everything males more sense there

However, I also think it is another point where it would be nice to have the ability to choose if the server has the functionality through the server settings. 

Yes, a server setting, please!

I can't see them getting rid of this because people were killing each other's dinosaurs in pvp cause that's kinda the point of pvp, oh no they killed my dinos using the transmitter. It would be nice because they are more or less useless, great for aberration and quick raids pre cryo but other than that?

 

It was more likely removed because pve players were abusing it.

I have one drop near to my base that I've used for the boss arena on the centre map.. However the drop descends onto a land bridge and it's very difficult to keep my rexs from dropping off the edge, happens all the time when coming back from the fight.... So any other drops are mostly in the other tribes  bases surrounded by gates... So allowing the transmitter to access the boss fight would be great for me, less hassle and a lot less time spent retrieving stray rexs that fall from the land bridge...😊 The obelisks  are an option but being in the red woods is too far to travel to then  find the obelisks crowded out... Great idea, hope it gets approval.
