Transferring these animals from Valguero can break them (list)

Transferring these animals from Valguero can break them (list)

With more and more people checking out Valguero now that the transfers are open, please be aware that these creatures are broken and cause problems being transferred. 

  • Ice Wyverns
  • Golems (both Chalk Golems and Ice Golems)
  • Polar Bears
  • Deinonychus (sometimes, transferring eggs seemed fine) 
  • Wyvern eggs vanish in upload
  • Eggs on the body sometimes vanish, sometimes get through, thank you @Mavrick88

Don't bring these animals on other servers cause the cryopod data will be corrupted after and you can also not unpod them on valguero anymore. 

I heard people managed transferring Golems successfully to Ragnarok. But the majority of people have lost their tames trying to bring them to other maps.

Another thing you can add to your list. If you derm an Ice Wyv on Valg, you can not display it.
Also change the Wyvern eggs vanish to (if you upload them in Ark Data Folder) but if you keep it on your body and transfer, it does transfer over. I have tested this with low eggs 3 separate transfers and it works fine. Eggs are cooking on Island from Valg. I'm going to test hatch, pod, unpod on Island. Then pod, take to Valg, unpod, pod, see if I can bring it back to island. I will update :)

So I just brought 6 eggs with me as a test. They were on my body. 1 lvl 20, 1 lvl 50, 1 lvl 100, 1 lvl 95, 1 lvl 150, 1 lvl 160. Only 4 of them made it over. :( 

I lost the 160 and the 20. They were all ready to come after a save. Seems like a hit or miss. I'm scared to bring the 190 and 170 event ones. The parents looked so cool!

It is the most important game breaking issue with Valguero for me personally. The only reason I have not yet added the map to my cluster. I have been waiting for a fix since the official release, testing transferring once in awhile and checking forums frequently. I would be glad to have it fixed eventually so I could play Valguero before Genesis is out.

As of 301.1 I can confirm naturally found Ice Wyvern eggs, Ice Wyverns tamed with DoTame and Chalk/Ice Golems spawned via GMSummon can't be transferred to Aberration with foreign creatures enabled through Tek Transmitter, Cryopods and in player's inventory. One egg uploaded and one inside player's inventory were lost on transfer too. I had no reason to do a bigger set of trials because these gave unambiguous results that the transferring has not been fixed yet from the initial attempt.

Ok so the other day, I had 12 eggs to transfer. I left them on the server overnight and tried to transfer them the next day. None of the eggs came over. So I don't think it's a certain amount of saves or anything like that.

I decided to do another test with server resets. I got some ice eggs last night. The servers restarted today for 301.3.

I had 14 eggs to bring over. I first tried w/ 3 eggs. I bought them all over just fine. I went back for the 11 left over eggs. They all also came over just fine.

So I can't say for sure w/o testing another server restart, but I can say on this test, I had 14 eggs sit overnight in a fridge, the server had a restart today. I went to the Valg server and was successfully able to bring all the eggs over there I had over to Island. 100% of transferred eggs came over! This may be a nice way to get some over, if others can test this as well.

Same here i set up a base on Valguero just to get some easy fast ice wyvern eggs and now i regret it because i lost 7 ice wyvern eggs i tried transfering over the first day and then i set up a hatchery hatched 10 ice wyverns and tried to cryopod and transfer to my main island server to raise. Now they won't deploy from the cryopod and they have a raptor image on them. Whats the point of new maps if they are released broken to the point where people lose hours of hard work.

I'm telling you the only 100% confirmed way to transfer them is wait for a restart. An update, a crash, whatever it is. The server must restart and the eggs MUST be in your possession before the restart. Either in a fridge or on your body on the server still. Mine are always in a fridge. After the restart, you can move them. 100% guaranteed!!!

Also, the pod thing...…..if you hatch one, pod it, the pod will have a raptor right? Dead pod? Nope, only if you transfer it. If you unpod it before a server restart, then come back after the restart, pod it back up, it's good. 100% ready to transfer. I have done a lot of testing with this and both methods work 100% of the time.

YOU MUST have eggs or unpoded Ice wvys (not in the pod but out growing) BEFORE a restart and in possession in your base or on your character. You can then transfer them AFTER a server restart. That's the only 100% guaranteed way to do it.

Ok this is AFTER a server restart. I took the eggs out of my fridge on Valg. See 9 eggs. I waited till there was a server update, they restarted servers. See that lvl 160? 7:22:18:14 spoil timer?

Now this is taking all 9 eggs, 100% came over cause I had them ALL in a fridge before a server restart. Now the 160 is over and fresh timers.

It took me a while to figure all this out but I promise if you do it my way, 100% guaranteed you can take them to any other server. It took me days/weeks many many transfers and hours of testing. It will work if you do what I said.

If you want to raise them on Valg DO NOT pod them before a server restart. You gotta leave them out during the restart. Come back, you'll have the Wyv picture and not a blank picture anymore. You gotta leave them out! Then you can take them anywhere you want.

I wasn't able to reproduce Mavrick88 's method on my testing cluster. The server's version is 303.5. Testing eggs were collected in the wild, freshly laid by wild wyverns. Testing wyverns were tamed with dotame command. I did server restarts with and without force respawn of wild dinos, with doexit command on client, with ASM stop button. I tried to do update/verify my server in one test. One egg was on me, other in a tek transmitter's tribute storage. After restarts I cryofreezed a wyvern - it showed a raptor icon. I uploaded one egg with transmitter and took another with me. Both eggs were lost upon transfer to Aberration that allows foreign dinos. I repeated these tests 5 times with the slightly different described conditions. Every trial failed to get a non-raptor cryopodded wyvern and to transfer eggs. I tried it with and without gcm and gmbuff commands, in spawned tek suit. I used one mod: Super Spyglass.

@Cedric does anyone up there care about this issue? Cause idk, seems like a pretty big issue to me. Or can someone at least explain why this is a "feature" if it's not an issue? An ice wyvern trench is an awesome idea, considering 99% of the time on PVP people just build over the ice wyvern locations on Rag, half the time by accident, because those wyverns are so darn rare! They're not even that powerful, especially compared to lightnings who can melt many tames in seconds with their insane DPS. So why are the ice wyverns in Valguero being treated like highly coveted secrets lol

The fact that this is an issue doesn't even bother me, it's the fact NOBODY is talking about it
