    Happy Patch Day, Survivors! It's Tuesday and ARK's latest update is going live just as this announcement is being posted. In celebration of the patch today we're sharing what we have been working on: some brand new previews of our upcoming expansion pack ARK: Extinction. Check out the images below for a sneak peak at what you can expect to see on planet Earth! In Extinction, Earth has become an Element-infested planet filled with fantastical creatures both organic and technological. Element has ravaged the planet and corrupted both the landscape and some of its inhabitants, causing mutations in the creatures and plants that can be found there. We look forward to sharing more in the months ahead as we work towards our Extinction release! Our Extinction Chronicles III event is going on right now, including new Corrupted skin, Explorer Notes, and Tek dinos. You can read all about it in yesterdays Community Crunch announcement:

    Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Extinction Chronicles III! Tomorrow there will be a client and server side update that will bring Extinction Chronicles III to survivors on PC, Xbox, and PS4! Leading up to the release of Extinction there will be monthly drops of Extinction-related Explorer Notes on The Island, Scorched Earth, and Aberration. Once collected these notes will unlock new Extinction-related skins! There will also be the appearance of more powerful Tek-themed Dinosaur variants within the ARKs each month. These Tek Dinos are permanent additions (meaning they will continue to spawn even after the event is over), with a new one beginning to appear each month. In Extinction Chronicles I we released three Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Helmet and the Tek Rex. In Extinction Chronicles II we released three Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Boots and the Tek Stego. And now, tomorrow we're excited to bring you three new Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Pants and a new Tek creature, the Tek Raptor! In addition, special colored dinos will be populating the ARKs. You'll be able to find creatures sporting red, black, white, and grey for the next month beginning tomorrow. Be sure to take advantage of these special colors before they're extinct! Patch Notes!

    Nothing worse than wanting to do a boss fight and some noob has left their dinos all over the obelisk or maybe they have done it intentionally, this happens on every server me and my friends have screamed bloody murder every single time because someone has done it. I don't want to have to kite or kill other players dinos just to clear the obelisk but you reach a point where you just get fed up and they will never learn to be considerate of the rest of the server that needs to use this space. I don't want to submit a ticket and then wait two weeks for a response to get a dino removed when the time we had planned has passed. Can we get a fast decay timer on the Obelisks centre something like 4 hours (and make it blatantly obvious like big orange text and a timer across the top of screen) thats plenty of time to download dinos from transferring server and move them to a secure location. Then maybe something like 12hours outside the ring so people stop leaving 40 rexs around the ob making it difficult to maneuver and set up your own dinos for a fight on the obelisk. Please implement a solution.

    Spent some time hunting for some otters. Went around the spawns with my bary and ichyornis in the hope of finding a high level otter, maybe even a blue event coloured one before the colours change with the new extinction chronicle. Took a while to find the first one, but eventually started finding them. Ended up just jumping between the two spawns I know by green ob. First couple were low level males but I tamed them anyway because they took so long to find. Finally lucked out on a 135 male, it was even an event coloured one, but absolutely ugly,blue belly and greyish on top. Bred the dimorphs again. Got the hp and mellee stat onto one dimorph, now to get stats with the colour I want , black with blue highlights from one of thw other dimorphs I have. Finally managed to hatch a male with the stats and the colours but still need a female. Started crafting up some more taming traps. Looking to install one or two into the snow biomes to start taming yutys and maybe even rhinos. Never tamed a rhino before but apparantly they are good at the boss fights so what the heck, if nothing else itll be fun.

    They have the POTENTIAL for higher stat values. 20% higher max level means 30 more levels of points for a wild dino to distribute to stats, or waste. Means more bonus levels post-tame as well. But again, its all random. I have a 54-point HP Tek Stego, but also many Tek Stegos that tamed out with 30-40 points in HP. Potential. That's all Tek Dinos have.

    I would personally prefer to see the oviraptor just run around collecting eggs instead as a tlc patch. Would utilize something already in the game, make sense, and not be too overpowered since it would stop collecting when its inventory filled up. It would not be as unique as the nest look, but would be more likely to actually see implemented since I do not get the general feeling that ark is adding to many extras that are not dlc related these days. 😕

    It was a wild weekend for me (official ps4 pve). Birthed event reapers on abberation, hatched a few gigas on island, raised some thylas on ragnarok (in the ice cave to farm the queen). Tamed this 150 equus.... so great!

    i especialy want... ceratosaur and shuno/amargo and more ankys.... atleast one new anky idk what tier the anky would be... low or high i would say low... just to keep the anky in its spot perhaps a anky that can fit in caves.... better then the current anky but then again why not just shrink Ankylosaurs... hit box so its more moveable in caves like make it so that the side spikes just go through walls?... alot of stuff can already do that with tails ect:.... i dont see why ankylosaur can't be used in caves since its dossier says otherwise in the "mines...." wich is a cave : / doedicurus is more able to fit in caves then anky true its smaller but it doesn't help much since all i ever got from doed's is just stone............. wich is quiet pfft. i am sure alot of other creatures should be in the game to wether it be in scorched earth abbeartion and heck the center could use a center exclusive to be on par with ragnarok..... i even wonder if the vanilla island map is done with adding new creatures..... i remeber the first days i found ark... on facebook and when they had those dossier days when they announced allo... dimetrodon ect: i was super excited..... i hope one day something like that will happen again.... i mean when the expanisons are comeing out those are just as hyped..... but aside from that things have sorta died down when adding new creatures and i understand u darkraptor~ @[email protected]

    Thats a pretty good explanation and rating. The reason people like Ragnarok the best is because it's got all in one. You can have the biggest bases, farm a lot of resources everywhere (including usually rare black pearls), tame high levels of any tame in existance and once you get established, use the Tek efficiently while getting the highest element rewards for the bosses. In short, its a progressing tribes' dream map. I also share your opinion about the island. I love the hard caves, the multiple bosses and balanced ecosystem. It's a shame it does so poorly with a bunch of people on it, with its limited "good" build spots.

    My tribe has been meshed by the same player, iFamaz, on three occassions in the last 4 months or so. He has been reported countless times by multiple people with video evidence from his own damn youtube channel and yet nothing happens. The devs are more concerned with dev wiping tribes with turrets placed under the mesh to prevent these kind of attacks than removing the scum that make it necessary to have them in the first place

    I agree with everything but the buff of 3 to 5 for crafting element. Personally i think a better substitute would be to add an element reward to the boss fight and to increase alpha basi spawns. Crafting element is easy but tedious for large amounts needed for filling turrets and upkeeping several tek generators.

    Greetings, I think a brand new way to regrow foliage could come in handy for buildings as the re-fertilizer can be kinda annoying to use. Why not increasing the re-fertilizer effect radius while in creative mode ? Or to add a new command allowing to regrow foliage at a specified radius around the user. If you have any other idea about it, let me now

    There are events from time to time that make every animal spawn in certain colors. It's a small chance that they spawn with event colors instead of natural ones. If you want them, go tame them or steal wyvern/drake eggs for a chance to have them hatch in event colors. If you want a specific color and missed the event for it, ask other players if they have this color, or start breeding for mutations, like everyone did before the color events were introduced. Colored animals are by no means rare any more. So far we had - Halloween colors (only available on cave animals like titanoboas); red and orange - Xmas colors; neon red and Neon green - Valentine's colors; white, Magenta and Pink - Easter colors; shades of Blue, shades of Yellow-orange, Grey, Cyan - ARKaeology colors; Shades of Gey (Black-white), shades of Brown and yellow - Extinction chronicles; Shades of Purple, Shades of Blue, Shades of Grey (currently still running, although Wildcard said it ended. Animals still respawn in event colors atm) Maybe I missed something, but that's what I remember from the top of my head. A personal note: I don't like things to be called "feminine" or "masculine", be it colors or anything else, that's just stupid (but also off-topic).

    They can't even fix holes in the mesh to prevent drakes and other dinos glitching through and flying into space. As much as it would make sense to have Megalanias, they are the last thing needed to be done to Aberr.

    I agree with the basic idea. Ive been playing aberration only since it came out last december and we need a revamp. the entire reason to play on this map is to end game craft element and beef your tribe up with tek before extinction hits. personally ive made over 200 element in the last 2 days solo for this exact reason. but the thing is, tek sucks on aberration on multiple levels. First off there is no reason for rockwell not to drop the replicator, he should, no exception and the same with the teleporter not working on ab its ridiculous and should be changed, second we need a tek structure that rockwell could give us the engram for which would let us make our own charge nodes. as an owner of 600+ charge batteries im soooo tired of recharging them using the basic aberration charge nodes. The tek suit by default should be able to protect from radiation damage, that needs to be fixed for sure. and to be honest i think the element gain should be buffed again from 3 to 5 because at the moment grinding the dragon manticore fight on rag is a much better method of element gain than ab element crafting, and that should not be the case.

    Already tons of players have quit and this sort of "update" is why. you remove my pillars that are keeping the food source available within range without me having to run a mile on a giga wasting even more of my real life time, we rarely leave our section of the map that my allies and i have saved from being a bluescreen mess due to the fact that when we do we end up dead due to bluescreen drowning or wild dinos whilst trying to load back in. first sign i see of some rectangular wood box lagzone base that own 3 dinos total appear by me or any of my local farming spots i'm quitting and taking any friends i can to a game where the developers actually listen to its players rather then restricting them. You are killing any fun or enjoyment this game had with these fixes, this is a bad idea not a solution that causes far more issues than is remedys. If there are no meat spawns or dinos to tame due to noob builds what reason do loyal players have to stay? the constant time out/bluescreens that you blame on psn even now the fact you have even considered this *update* is laughable and makes us all wonder who exactly comes up with ideas of what to fix, all the issues this game still has and you decide on this, how about you fix the frame rate issues. bluescreens or wild dino kiting that useless players do. i had dinos killed by players with wild wyverns and provided screenshots of them doing it and there names to you and nothing came of it. Wildcard is becoming a joke as much time as i have put into this game, as much as i have enjoyed logging on to raise and build. unfortunately i will have to let it go and move on because this is just more of the same disappointments time after time. Thanks guys

    If the pillars go you may need to consider expanding the no build radius between tribes and make more no build zones to ensure there will still be dino spawns. This is main reason most players use the pillar method.
