    Common Name: Titanosaur Species: Titanosaurus Vagacastrum Time: Late Cretaceous Diet: Herbivore Temperament: Passive, unless approached Wild Today I witnessed an unforgettable sight. The extremely rare ‘Titanosaurus Vagacastrum’. Essentially a walking mountain, it is an absolutely enormous sauropod which has developed armored plates of bone protrusions all over its body. Between these plates and its unparalleled size, Titanosaurus is extremely difficult to put down. In addition, Titanosaurus seems outright immune to any sort of narcotic effects. They often inadvertently crush nearby creatures underfoot with every step they take. Whilst most Sauropods ignore non-hostile creatures, Titanosaurs take issue with creatures invading its personal space. This is probably because they aggressively feed off any and all plants they can find. Titanosaurus eats constantly, which certainly helps recover health quickly, even after fighting off numerous carnivores such as Giganotosaurus. Domesticated I suspect that a Titanosaur, for all its sheer size, is overkill for a lone rider. Rather, for those elite tribes powerful enough to bend one of these titans to their will, the epic creature is employed as a mobile superfortress, capable of ferrying obscene amounts of weight, structures, defenses, and creatures across the island. Some nomadic tribes even have their main base on their back of a Titanosaur! Humble Bundle Sale!

    Greetings fellow survivors, Upon the success of my first Rex kill, and my house boat holding up to the barrage of damage that big guy inflicted, it was time to venture out to find another one. This time a tame was in order. I had previously scouted an area with a lone Rex hunting at a river not too far from home base. With 50 tranq arrows, narcotics, and a preserving bin full of meat, it was time to head out to say hello to that fine specimen. I brought Giles (my trike) along, just in case I needed more resources in a pinch. It was a bit before morning, when I spotted the Rex, feasting uncontrollably just yards up the river. I left Giles safely on the shore down river, and slowly inched my way towards the Rex. At 4:00 I docked on the beach, and made my way to a rock cluster, which looked like a perfect vantage point. Just as the Rex came in nearby to attack a Stego I began firing tranqs at her. She completely ignored my attacks, until she finished her meal, and proceeded to walk right over the rock formation with little effort. I made haste back to my boat, with the big girl hot on my heels. Running up the ramp and into the second story doorway, I was safe from her attacks..for now. A few dozen arrows later, and she collapsed! Falling right smack on top of my entire boat, actually leaving me trapped in my sleeping quarters. After breaking down a wall, I was able to get outside and behold her gloriousness. That's when I thought, "Perhaps I can sail back home, with her still unconscious on my boat". Sure enough, it worked! I sailed back to base, which made the taming process much easier. I also brought out a few other of my dinos to welcome her into our fold once she was re-born. Lex is now a very welcome member of our family, though she does seem a bit lonely.. Until the next time survivors!

    I found it super funny that I spent most of my Friday evening looking for poop to tame the beetles. How was I going to explain that to friends. LOL!

    I remember my first tame. A Raptor, named Slash. She was a beautiful black/dark red color, level 23. Attacked me on the beach. Thankfully I had leveled up and was wearing Hide armor, so I was able to stand and fight. Let's face it, you're not gonna run away from a raptor. Booped her on the snoot a couple times. She almost killed me, but I managed to knock her out. Then I killed a few dodos that were roaming around for meat, and sat next to her and tamed her. She was with me for weeks as my main mount. By the time she hit Max Level, she could outrun anything on the island, or kill almost anything. (This was before the Giganoto was added, mind you) Got her a swanky Apprentice Saddle, and gave her a wicked cool tattoo. She was my best pal. Until she finally died when I got swarmed by Titanoboas that knocked her out. I was able to jump off of her and run to safety, but then I saw her death notification. I must have murdered about 100 snakes that day.

    I remember the first solo tame I did....I was a total nervous wreck. Lol. I was hunting sabers and trying to find the right color and right level and then the right place. It was exhilarating when the tame finished. I was sure we would be attacked before it was done. Gratz on your tame. Quite a bit of good fortune, that she collapse on your boat. Well done!

    Hello Survivors! We are excited to announce that in the near-future, ARK: Survival Evolved will support Local Two-Player Split-Screen for both Xbox One and PC versions of the game!

    Hey Survivors! Welcome to the twenty-fifth issue of the ARK Digest! We hope you had a fantastic holiday period and are just as excited as we are for 2016. We’ve got a lot planned for the ARK this coming year and cannot wait to get it out to you! First of all, a congratulations is in order! Survival of the Fittest: Naughty or Nice On the 28th of December 200 survivors went head to head in an ultimate and epic Survival of the Fittest battle. The 200 survivors consisting of your favourite ARK streamers and some of the best SoTF players around were randomly placed in two tribes, Tribe Naughty and Tribe Nice. They fought it out in an massive 100 versus 100 elimination battle for charity. Each team were sporting stylish blue and red Santa hats respectively, but ultimately only one tribe could prevail as victorious! For those of you who were unable to watch the Naughty or Nice event you can watch the full VOD here, shoutcasted by our lovely hosts Bikeman and JayEx23. In addition you can also check out your favorite streamers most recent broadcasts, as they may have streamed their POV! Without further ado, we’re proud to announce the winning team of the last Survival of the Fittest championship of 2015, Tribe Naughty! As the winners of this event, Tribe Naughty was awarded $10,000 to divide among each player and donate to their charity of choice from the following: AbleGamers, Charity: Water, Childs Play, GamingForAdoption, and TakeThis. Each of these charities also received an additional $1,000 on behalf of Studio Wildcard. Congratulations goes out to our winners and all of the contestants who made the first event of our new Total Conversion mod incredibly entertaining to watch! Highlights Video! Following our festive charity battle, we reached out to content creators on Twitter requesting an ARK: Survival of the Fittest - Naughty or Nice Highlights Video! Awarding 500$ to the video we enjoyed the most! Congratulations to Valoule who’s SoTF highlight video was very enjoyable and quite hypnotic! We also had some other great entries from more ARK Survivors and as a thank you for putting a highlight video together, we’ll be awarding you with 100$ each! 0slyde A2_Dtox GamerPerfection Xbox Contest - The Hunt for the Bionic Rex! On the 15th of December we announced a contest where we would award a Survivor 200$, if they were the first to obtain a Bionic Rex skin on an Official PvP server and tweet us a screenshot! On the 30th of December, https://twitter.com/Fusion_V7 managed this, so congratulations to them! and speaking of the Xbox - worry not survivors as early next week you’ll be receiving a content update where our latest friend will be hopping itself over to your islands! Patch 231.3 Balance Changes! We've rolled out an additional patch to the balance values we altered earlier. These new numbers will still help tackle the issue of over-inflated creature stats however will help alleviate some of the concerns that have been brought up over the past two days. We're interested in hearing your feedback so please let us know what you think about the new changes and your main concerns regarding the state of balance in ARK. Please make sure that you're playing on an Official Server with the latest version (231.3) or your private-server is running the latest version and has no other customization so that we're able to make full use of your feedback and get a clearer understanding of the state of the game. Thank you guys! Megathreads for comments: Survivetheark Steam Reddit ARK Digest Q+A Yeah it should be mostly primes! We’ll make this change in the next update. On a Live Public Server (unlike in a Single Player Game or Non-Dedicated Host Mode), Wild creature spawns/despawns can be randomized based on a number of factors, including server performance. Only by tranq-ing them out are you fully guaranteed they’re going to stick around indefinitely. Yes actually that is currently being programmed Their arenas are being finished up right now! We’re looking into that. Can’t confirm anything yet though! That sounds like a pretty neat idea, we’ll likely get around to it. There’s going to be a massive desert. Haha we like the sound of this :-D Basically you need to leave an animal (or person) around for it to hunt. Last team to knock out the animal gets the credit for Affinity when the Troodon hunts and kills that creature. There’s a cooldown on this. The better the creature, the more Affinity. Do it enough, and the Troodon becomes yours with the corresponding Affinity. If it works out well, we will adapt it for other carnivores too. There are key Survivors on the ARK whose notes you’ll be finding through deep exploration. Dossier Dude (not his real name) is one. Recipe Gal (not her real name) is another. The others include a Three Kingdoms Era Monk and a Roman Centurion. Their writings, across time and languages, help lead to unlocking the mystery of exactly what the ARK is. Plasma sabers. You got it Yup, it will be coming to the Xbox! Yes, the SWAT Armor is imminent! Security has been very excited about this. As we get more creatures in, we plan more day/night behavior variation per dinos. Yes, some will sleep during the day or night respectively, unless disturbed. Not on this ARK You’ll be able to do both in the next major update :)! Beer! Yup, we’ll be looking at this in Breeding Phase 2. That’s the Chemistry Table, and it’s on the way! Tek Tier is gonna have something special for this purpose, and it will have other uses too. Non-permanent, similarly to SotF. However the rate of being able to summon bosses will be server-adjustable, as well as how long they last. So if you want some crazy boss-overrun server… well, that’s up to you :-P Very likely, but we need to take the time to analyze the memory and performance cost of it on consoles first. You shall! Yes there will be. We need to go through and make sure none of them can ‘crash’ the game first (a no-no on consoles). We’re actually working on a skill-based mechanic for exactly this. That’s actually a pretty good idea. We’ll work on that. Nope, because they all come from the Broodmother! Indeed, at the Tek Tier. It will also accelerate their incubation speed. Yes, you will be. But it’ll do less damage. Yep, stack sizes goin’ up! We plan to rebalance the supply drops in the next major update. Sure, we’ll add that in the next major version. Yup, we’re working on a fix for it as we speak and hope to have it ready shortly :). It shall be done! That’s for the Allosaurus! That’s it for this week’s ARK Digest! Thanks for tuning in and hopefully you’ve walked away learning something new ;). Please take a look at our latest changes in Patch 231 and be sure to share your feedback! We’ve got a lot planned this year and can’t wait to get cracking! All the best, Wildcard Jat & The ARK Survival Evolved Team!

    I brought my friend back to ark and the first thing he did was create this beauty. In my countless hours in ARK I have never seen a more beautifully designed raft. He has a main crafting area in the hull and he even has a captains room for personal storage and respawns.

    Wildcard studios is a small company with like 50 employees. Not all those employees can code, or program and what not. There are artists and animators, PR people, and probably receptionists. So im sure the people who can fix glitches and bugs or make a queue system for xbox will get on it when they can. It does no good having their entire workforce get on bug fixes if only a fraction know how. So they are going to work on what they know how to do, artists and animators making new dinos for instance. So bug fixes and new features coming out alongside each other is just going to happen. Not to mention they have to split employees attention to more than one platform.

    Great stories! Its amazing how Wildcard really makes you love these dinos. My first tame was a trike named "Frontend Loader" He was my best buddy till I got him stuck in a cave entrance because I forgot he was on follow... I had to execute him to leave the cave...

    Not the easiest things to knock out using a crossbow and tranc arrows. Well worth it once they are leveled up. Go stomping through the densest jungle with little to fear. Just avoid the swamp since they can't defend themselves that good if mired in the water. Barney and Bertha.

    A little behind-the-scenes look of the Christmas Village from the trailer. I named all of the stockings after the crew and some of the Wildcard team.

    Okay I know there is a thread already and if need be mods and admins, please merge it. However, I am making this a new thread, just by chance, it has fallen on deaf ears. The infinite joining session bug is still looming its ugly maw. But now, none of the previous fixes are working to sort out the jumbled mess of memory seeping broken code that is there hidden behind the frame work. Yes my NAT is open. Yes I have deleted the reserved space, yes I have cleared my MAC Cache, yes I have cold reset my ONE. The last thing I really want to do is redownload again for about the 10th time.... Soooooo just so everyone knows... It is still there... Hope this allots at least some attention. Cheers and happy hunting all. May the Alpha Giga Be with you.
