    One pro tip i strongly urge using on extincion is setting up cliff platforms above your base to use up the spaces for cliff platforms so that griefers can't set up a teleporter above your base and drop corrupted gigas into your base.

    Try some barry white and low level lighting. They tend to be shy. Failing that there's a breedable griffins mod if you're not on official.

    Ugh, I feel your pain. Ark has become quite demanding on the xbox one. I finally got the Xbox X and am amazed how much better Ark runs. I only play singleplayer but there's way less crashes and with the enhanced graphics Ark looks pretty amazing.

    Wildcard "losing" isn't what you should hope for, if you like these games. Just (significant) fixes to the anti-meshing false positives, and/or a change to the do-not-restore policy for tames destroyed by the false positives. An approach that would be more productive would be to do *all* of the following: Post all the info you have in the anti-meshing false positives thread (they'll need data to fix all of this!) Submit a ticket to support for each thing you have destroyed by a false positive. Be polite and respectful but express your frustration for the losses caused by false positives. Unless their policy has changed, they'll tell you that they won't do anything, but you'll still be a metric that lets them know the community wants attention on this. Write an email to info@studiowildcard.com, again be polite and respectful in expressing your frustration with anti-meshing false positives, and the policy for which false-positive destruction won't be restored. Sure, it might be a black hole of an email, and you almost certainly won't get a response, but somebody probably reads them and at least can tell others they've been getting a number of complaints about it. All of this may help get more focus from the folks at Wildcard on the problem, and more communication about what/when it will be fixed. @Cedric, will there be any more communication soon about what is being done to fix the anti-meshing destruction false positives? If not, can we please get more attention on it? It feels like we're walking around in a minefield of invisible mines that could destroy hours of work at any moment when playing ark right now. I know you asked for patience while your team works on it, but the false positives seem to be continuing to destroy things daily at a quick pace based off the false positives thread (and thats just the ones that get reported!). There have been some light details in the patch notes, but those seem to be fixes for very specific scenarios. The problem seems much bigger and wide spread than for the very specific fixes so far in the patch notes to solve the problem.

    Common sense needs to be exercised on the part of enforcement. If this same crew is videoed/ss on 10 different servers doing the same thing and has hundreds of tickets from a hundred different players, is the thought "oh, all of ps4 pve got together and hatched a plan to get these guys banned with false accusations." ? Come on. At the very least they should state specific guidelines of what is deemed proof. Right now, ss of them admitting can be doctored, live video of them admitting can be a fake account, as per your example they could of ran out of stam, been taming, etc. Fine. Then remove it from the CoC so the players following CoC that are getting attacked can get justice without worry that one GM arbitrarily decides "well this is proof." and they get double penalized. CoC should not be vague or up to GM discretion. It should be specific.

    Titanosaurs and turrets I’m hoping for a straight forward, data proven, not based on what’s been read, answer. I have looked quite a bit online. Do turrets attack titans? Not species x, I know from experience they do not. Auto turrets and heavy turrets set to wild dinos only. I’m on a pve official by the swamp and I get boas and sarcos pretty frequently. No behemoth gates; I hate the look. Every so often a titanosaur walks on my house. Currently use species x as turrets but I want to add auto turrets. I do not, however, want to have my house demolished. Not looking for how to Titan proof my land. I’m sick of these mf snakes on my mf plain.

    I GOT SCREWED!! So I was interduced to ark threw my son watching YouTube videos. Always finding myself saying "what the hell game is this again?" so I thought itd be a good idea to get it for my 8yr old. So after I jumped on this thing called ark, I instantaneously realized "what the hell kinda game is this". So after dying 400x and taking days to even know what the hell was going on let alone save. I started the survival. Once I was established my boy picked right up on it too. It's buggy as hell, iv errored out a million times, I know I got shafted on the switch version. But with that said it was enough to hook me...bad. My son now has it for his switch and between mine and his we have over 250hrs in and that's mainly sp or just us two. SO.. I get absolutely no DLC and by the sounds of it I won't get genisis either! I don't have the money to buy a computer or Xbox or I would, just for ark maps. Even on the switch port I managed to get hooked and would easily drop more money into it, even with all the bugs and absolutely no updates I want more.. I just don't understand why they neglect the switch port(well I do cause its the switch port) when theres obviously people ready to help the ark name in the switch world. Anyone else stuck with the switch version but still loves the hell outa it?. I'm sure there's others bitching too, but Its been bugging me and had to get it out.. poop it wasn't even easy to sign up for an account on this.. No switch to pick. I had to write my first dlc? Iv haven't got to play one but that wasn't a valid answer.. But whatever. #THINKOFTHESWITCH!

    But helena did enter the Genesis Simulation already ? The last of the Genesis Chronicles notes (#15) even mentions it: " Once Helena’s friends beamed her into the Genesis simulation, she made me. But then she left. I guess homo deus beings can’t stay in our reality -- or the simulation -- for very long. She gave me basic access to the simulation, but not a lot of guidance beyond that." Seems like it isn't a problem with different sorts of tek, but with the nature of being a homo deus ?

    The original is very underpowered . I've recently moved to pc from a one x and can the the one x runs pretty well and is great for the price . I'd expect the original to struggle being 8byears old . Currently gaming on 5700xt ryzen 3600

    I'd say that's the risk of playing any recent games on a console that was released like 8 years ago... especially huge games that contains so much content and complex mechanics that do not have 8-bits graphics ala Minecraft such as ARK. There is unfortunately so much game developers can do to support old hardware...

    nonononononononononononononononono but what about my lunatek? You can't just easily explain away the issue in a much more simple manner like that! Although that doesn't explain the issue of how Helena can't enter the GenSim. If it was still just tek, then Helena should be able to access it, so we can assume it's not simply tek. Also, I think that Diana was referring specifically to that one set of tek armor they made for her as off-brand, not saying that everything they were making was poor quality.

    Actually, the Broodmother, Megapitechus and the Titans works fine anywhere. The Dragon, Overseer, Rockwell, Manticore, etc. do not because they are programmed in "stages", and spawning the actors is not enough to initiate the first one so they stays idle.

    Sounds like you are doing it right, I had that issue once when I was trying to walk a dino in the pouch and I ended up just out of mate boost range of the male procoptodon so I ended up not getting the bonus imprint, maybe thats your issue? other than that I dont remember the % per imprint for megatheriums but your sure they dont get 25% usually and the 50% IS the bonus? cause getting 100% in 1 imprint on a megatherium sounds pretty OP to me lol

    Lol. I love all the scaremongering. How ill educated people are . Though I understand new players . It’s all the first day player base still playing now that just need to roll their necks back in and just enjoy ark. Legacy is finite. If no one plays, servers don’t stay. Simple . Done . Officials with all duped items on them are what ? Doomed to become legacy 2 . Again. If servers are being populated and played . They will not be wiped. As a business you would not pay for servers that no one plays on. Yet you wouldn’t also in the same way wipe populated servers to see your customers leave and go elsewhere. No one . No one can point out or supply evidence where it’s been stated legacy is being deleted by ......date..Which is why new content will continue to be available to legacy players as long as servers are populated and meaning in simple terms . People play.servers stay.

    This is kinda interesting because the arks are supposed to be the solution against the element, with the proto-arks offering small pockets of protection from the corruption surrounding them. Especially since the explorer notes also describe the forest, snow and desert as the lairs of the 3 lesser titans, so even if they don't "spawn" there in the lore, they do seem to at least live there. As for the cloning, one of the explorer notes mentions the forest titan growing, so idk about that one: " First among his lieutenants is the titan wreathed in green, the Lord of the Forest. Ever growing, ever consuming, the forest is both its kingdom and its body. Bones of wood sprout flesh of moss and leaves, and fingers made of vines reach out for the throats of its enemies. It is the eldest of the trio, having started from a tiny weed, but grows ever taller as it assimilates the groves of its verdant realm. Even if its body is chopped to bits, it will eventually regrow. So long as there is the forest, there will always be a lord. That is, until you sever it from its master. "

    @BrainwashZombiethe game has so many problems that VR seems like something in the stars. They talked about VR at some point but it seems that they expected other games to sell better or way more people to use VR. VR is at this point just a niche, most people don't want to spend the 1000$ or € and who can blame them. I would not count on VR for ARK unless VR becomes way more casual. Their team is probably way too small to invest into it.

    Copied directly from the Code of Conduct, found on the "Support" tab of these forums: "PvE Specific Griefing > Intentionally using wild creatures to destroy a player's assets when not in a tribe war." That is griefing, and therefore actionable. Getting proof is tough, but possible, and it will make all the difference in proving your case to a GM. @Joebl0w13 you tired or something?

    Griffins and owls don't need to gain altitude before diving or slow down between dives. Once you point your nose directly down it gives you the full speed boost. You can immediately point up and then level out without losing any speed.

    everytime Cedric mention this he always asks is it prim plus .. NO .. How can he possibly think that if he read ANY of these posts. This is the worst customer service I have ever experienced. It's unacceptable that there isn't any acknowledgement, and feigned ignorance. Also the GM replies are obviously their best attempt to respond in the absence of any information from the devs. It's almost as if they are dropping Xbox support

    Do people not know how to chain the owl/griffin glide to keep your top speed all the time? On an owl you don't even need very much altitude to start. Just do a quick dip to get an initial speed boost, use that to go way up into the air, then dive and pull up. You don't lose momentum for going up immediately after a dive because the boost is time based. Watch your stamina to see when your glide is slowing and then repeat the maneuver.

    You watched an edited video. They could have launched it 100,000 meters in the video if they edited it to look that way. I'd take the range in the video with a grain of salt. And turrets do work underwater, its just that generators dont so you have to put the geny either in an underwater cave or a vaccum compartment, which is why you never see underwater turrets.

    Whenever I or someone said "try unofficials" to people complaining about the official servers, it's always the same responses: "Admin abuse", "Server might close down and I will lose everything" or "I play on console". If console unofficials do exist, then I don't see why people ever said that. Of course unofficials have the risk of admin abuse and server closing, but out of all the unofficials I have played on, I have only once encountered admin abuse. It's not that common of an issue to be considered a downside of unofficials. The server could close down forever and result in you losing your stuff, but the same could technically occur on officials. The machine runs into an error and the saves corrupt, for example, would result in the same as the server closing down. When we said "play singleplayer", were referring to the poster saying that they want to play the game according to their schedule, and that they paid to do so. Singleplayer lets you play the game as you want. Servers are hosted by someone, and they pay for them. With that logic, the person paying for the server is also the one in control of how and when you play on it. I will repeat it once more. If you complain about the official servers being garbage, but want to play multiplayer, consider unofficials. Play on higher rates, and losing stuff won't hurt as much.

    I've been playing PvE for years. Catastrophes like this will happen, not just now, but in the future too as new mechanics are rolled in. Over my time on Ark I've lost structures, Dino's and gear due to the game not working as intended. Over time your soul gets pounded into a grey, porridge like substance after which you'll not care as much. Instead you'll sigh, go make a coffee, sit back down and mutter to yourself "Arked..." and carry on. If you've built it before, you can build it again. It'll probably be better, too. Likewise, if you've raised or tamed them before, it can be done again. Just make sure you have enough coffee in the house.

    I got it to work finally! I didn’t have it in my Input.ini file initially, but I took the advice to switch the key mapping of the two whistles u and j for each other and saved. The info is now in my input.ini file and I changed it just how it was explained. I want to thank everyone that helped out. Great community! I turned the game off today as soon as I got in because it wasn’t fixed. I tried one more time and I am so grateful to you all for figuring this out! Thanks again! This is one of the most annoying bugs I have come across in any game and so relieved to have some peace and quiet lol!

    Yeah, because they forced you to pre order. If you have any time in this game you knew this was coming. But it’s the ARK community, so bitch, bitch, bitch. It will be out when it’s out, and you will play it. Chance you take when you pre order anything that isn’t done. Most adults get this.

    Apparently by what I've seen is that they are going to dedicate a lot for water as well. They already mentioned the giant turtle, which is so big that you can build on it. Some resources even spawn in it. And one of the most exciting news is the underwater boss. It is an eel looking thing called the Moeder. That must count for something right?

    So... Where are the dinos ? (again ?) Okey 2 new DLCs and 3 new creatures: A robot buddy A lava lizard A 4-arms gremlin-garogo hybrid Edited: and now a 6-eyes Turtle. Seriously ? Why can't we have an Archelon without insects/zombie/robot part ? Who the hell thought "yes a Turtle with 6 eyes is a great idea"? It would have looked great with only 2 regular eyes guys ! If we don't get an Archelon like the awesome one seen in one of the sponsored mods, I'm OUT of this game. I'll never buy Genisis if it's only creatures designed like this disgusting Turtle. The artistic team definitely should be changed. Next creatures will be what ? A 8-arms-snail with a Rocket-launcher-shell ? We got SE, Aberration and Extinction. No dinos except the fully invented camelsaurus and the spiky velonasaur... The deinonychus gave us hope for New dinos after a very long wait. But nope, 2 new fully scifi monster DLC coming. I missed the good ol' days when we got lots of prehistoric creatures. The prehistoric survival part is my favorite part of the game since the begining. So sad it's left apart and we only got scifi monster now. I play games like Borderlands, Fallout and no Man sky, I've got enough scifi. Ark was kind of special thanks to the dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. But now it feels "déjà-vu" between the old dinos and the overdose of scifi creatures. At least more TLCs, variants and skins for the good old dinos, mammoth&co would be refreshing. Am I the only one that remember the old days when Ark was mainly a Dino game ?

    To poor for a PC but they can afford a console? The price of a PS4 pro right now is 399! I built my son a PC that he plays ark high graphics setting on for 380 so what say you about that? It also runs farcry5 on high setting. So it is a choice they make and not because they can't afford a PC. Plenty of YouTube channel show how to build a PC more powerful then a console for the same price. And yes you are right I should have known it would be postponed every one has since early development.
