  1. If it was different developers making this i would have bought it asap, but wont bother seeing how ark 1 was a buggy mess and they treated there fan base like rubbish and never listened.

  2. Why a parrot? Personally, I am a bird lover. I own my own conure and really just would love to see parrots in ark. I also thought of a way to make what it does serve a purpose we don't really have. A lot of entries either seem to be too over powered to add in(making things too easy) or are just another fancy skin to what already exists. I know the archeopteryx exists but lets be honest, who ACTUALLY uses it? You drop slowly, cant control what you are doing and can't use your arms at all while holding it. So I thought of a better way! So presenting the Raven Parrot! Or Broad-Billed Parrot but I thought the Raven Parrot name sounded nicer. I ever threw together a dossier to make it look fancy! So here is a description of my idea for it, with more information in my post. What does it do? The Raven parrot is meant to serve similar to a parachute, but with a bit more to it! When on the ground you can set it for 'parachute' mode. When this is activated it will initially seem similar to an archeopteryx, but better! It will flap to slow your decent, but your arms are free to use tools or weapons. You can control your direction with wasd, allowing you to change direction in the air turning front and backwards, or even strafing during your decent. You can also fall faster by holding x which will cause it to stop flapping and you will fall at a normal speed. Be sure to let go of x before you get too close to the ground or you will take fall damage as normal! When in attack mode if an enemy flyer grabs you it will bite at the feet of the creature, inflicting bleed on it and will keep biting until it lets go. It will also chew off bolas if you are wearing it and are hit with a bola, or if you try to bola the creature itself. It's large beak and break the rope of the bola in seconds! When parachute mode is disabled it will still sit on your shoulder, but it will be more alert with quicker idle animations. It will let out a panic call if a hostile creature is targeting you to give you some warning of the danger. This will not give any indicator of where it is coming from, so you need to pay attention to the vocal cue to catch the warning. This does not work with players, just hostile creatures. Taming of the birb! There is another fun feature, as this bird absolutely LOVE seeds, if you let it wander it will harvest seeds from nearby bushes. But keeping that beak in tip top shape also takes some work, so if it wanders near a tree it will 'chew on'(harvest) the tree and get back some thatch. It's not going to be incredible quantities of thatch, but is a nice little bonus! It will gather all types of seeds. This includes x and y seeds. Taming this little guy will take paying attention, but isn't terribly difficult. It will spawn in warm, forest areas. It is drawn to player built structures, and will wander around them. If you walk or run near too close, it will flap its wings and run away, eventually wandering back when it's no longer spooked. In order to tame it you will need to have some type of seed in your inventory, and will need to lay on your belly and scoot near it. As you get closer it will stop and stare at you in attention with it's crest up. This is when you need to stop moving and throw one seed down. After it starts walking towards the seed you will need to scoot backward to give it space. Once it eats the seed the taming will begin. You will need to keep scooting towards it until it's alert, throw a seed and back away until it's fully tamed. Let's be honest, ark has very few uses for seeds so often we end up with an abundance of seeds. So I figure, why not make use of all those seeds? I also am a big fan of unique taming methods other than 'beat the tar out of it until it's unconscious and drug it so it is brain washed into loving you'. Parrots are intelligent creatures who need a bond of trust. I wanted the taming method to utilize this. The preference for seeds is as follows from best to worst. It does not require any kibble, the Z and R seeds will act as kibble for them. Plant Species Z/R Plant Species X Plant Species Y Any Vegetable seed Any Berry Seed Once fully tamed it will eat seeds of any kind, as well any type of vegetable and berries. They do not fly but instead when fleeing or running they will run and flap their wings to gain momentum to quickly escape. In the wild if hit it will initially flee, then come back around and bite you. The bite will cause bleeding and on anything categorized as small will give it the 'crippled'(bone) effect for 15 seconds. When attacking it uses its wings to leap into the air and rush its enemy. I am also open to suggestions on ways to improve it! I wanted it to be useful, but not too op when used like having a free glider suit. If you like it, I hope you will consider voting to add this lovely parrot into ark! I wanted it to be a creature that was fun to use, with use for pvp as well.

  3. Im not sure if Ill ever say this again, but ok. Im sorry for being a spaz over the potential issues that could have hit before holidays. Played a bit today on lost island, so far so good, not sure if there are any bugs later on {mostly worried about the artifacts, those always seem to be the main problem} But yeah. A good update. Couple bumps, couple issues. I see some servers accidentally "left the door open" when it comes to creature transfers, but for all it could have been, all the past experiences, this one was a ok update for both the winter wonderland as well as the new map. Im impressed and if the devs hear this, good job.

  8. The 'Light' is now called 'Clap'. It is still there and functions the same, but they have renamed it clap because it now works with the new Sino creature which is not a light creature.

  9. Well, the bat we have isn't rideable or even able to be used as a shoulder pet... This one is pretty different. We also have many theropods, many birds... Of different species, like the two bats are. But other than that, I like your way of thinking I hope we can keep the placement we are in right now! I'm going to be brief since the size question has been discussed here a couple of times, but I think there is a difference between a mere size change and and completely making up a creature but giving them a real animal species name. The size for the bat isn't a big stretch when the design is pretty similar to the real counterpart and abilities make sense for the animal it is inspired on, in my opinion. They already gave you the Gasbags example that yeah, seems more fantasy than real although it shares the same genus of real life tardigrades, but if you want a better example of a real life creature that has a huge size difference in ark, look at the lymantria.

  10. I am on PS5 singleplayer and the same issue seems to come up after playing for a while. Temporary fix is to restart single player, but it seems to occur faster the second time if you didnt restart the entire game. So yes, it does appear to be caused over time and it is either an issue with Ark after the last update, lost island, or the christmas event.

  11. (Official, Lost Isle) More building. Enlarged the fenced off area slightly so that maneuvering he stego would be easier. Named the stego Jiggles. Decided to get a ptera, first knocked out one, but it was 25. Then knocked out a different one - 150! And then lost Jiggles to a level 15 rex. The rex also killed the 25 ptera (hey, good thing it wasn't the 150!) Knocked the rex out out of spite and tamed it. Tamed the ptera, rode it to the nearest crystal spot and finally made a spyglass. Saw a level 20 male carno, decided to get it - sure, carnos are unpleasantly loud, ugly, and this particular one is bright green, but I needed something fast, strong, with more weight than the ptera, and capable of fitting through a dino gate because like hell I'm building a behemoth. So I knocked it out, got some metal because I wasn't sure I had enough ingots for the saddle, killed an ovis, and tamed the carno. His name is Fir and he is very useful. I just finished the house - only had to install a door, as the unpleasant news of a rollback happening in a few minutes were shared in the chat, so I have no door and, honestly, not sure how much stuff that I've built I do still have. ... (Official, Lost Isle) Only logged on to see what I have now. Yep, old house, less land, and nothing but an once again unnamed stego to ride. Guess I just wasted my time building and taming. (Official, Extinction) Fed dinos, went to the Sunken Forest to tame gachas. No dust again. (Official, Valguero) Fed dinos, put eggs into the hatchery, unpodded wyverns, gave bees more flowers, went for milk, got it and fed wyverns. Enabled mating on gigas, but Raptor Claus arrived, so disabled it, grabbed my tropeo and went for the gifts. Managed to get two, nothing good in them at all. Returned home, finally bred gigas. Yuty eggs hatched, nothing good, killed. One of the giga eggs hatched too - twins, no mutations, but kept because at some point I'll have my almost-all-gray wyvern, and its better to have some baby gigas for leveling. Picked up the rest of the eggs, podded younger wyvern, older one should be fine, and that's all for today.

  12. Never mind. A simple reinstall of Ark did fix the problem. For why i didnt try that yet? cause Ark is HUUUGE. It takes forever to download. *Im in germany. Internet is not the best here.

  13. The irritator is a medium spinosuarid carnivore, like the Baryonix, but it’s amazing intelligence allows it to use simple tools and build huts from blueprints given to it. But in the wild, it uses this intelligence to barter for it’s favorite food, prime fish, temporarily allying with survivors who will trade with it. even more suprisingly, i've heard of some calling baryonix and other carnivores it's size to its aid to cover its escape

  14. Had enough of annoying pests like seagulls, troodons, microraptors and pegos, just to name a few? Then this is not the creature for you, but I'm putting it here anyways, you can't stop me. The Irritator, living up to it's name, would be an annoying spinosaurid to encounter. Thought the baryonyx with it's spin attack was bad enough already? List of thing's I'll put here: 1. Dossier 2. (Potential) Abilities and controls. 3. Taming method 4. Art (no I can't draw so I'll show a random image and try to credit the original artist) 5. Link to irritator on wikipedia if somehow needed Dossier Common name: Irritator Species: Irritator Molestie Time: Early Cretaceous Diet: Piscovore Temperament: Territorial Wild Irritator Molestie, living up to it's name, is kinda a pain in the a-hole. Almost identical in appearance asa it's larger cousin Baryonyx, mistaking one as one is often the last mistake many survivors make. Much more aggressive than the Baryonyx, it will defend it's territory with it's life, spitting spitting water "bullets" at enemies almost as fast as a bullet. These water spits move so fast that they can knock survivors unconscious and off almost any mount. If that's not bad enough for you, they are often found in small packs from 2-4, making them even more dangerous! Domesticated If successfully domesticated, Irritator can make a good, semi-aquatic war mount. Although a bit weaker than a Baryonyx, they make up for it with their pack behavior and water spit. Basically a cheap gun which is powered by water! If you're not a war type of person, then they can be used to knock out smaller creatures like raptors and parasaurs! No tranqs needed, just some water. Abilities and Controls More of a pvp creature (despite me not liking pvp), I've taked both pvp and a little pve in mind. REMINDER: These are just ideas, these could be changed. Controls: Left-Click: Bite, like baryonyx but a bit faster and weaker. 30 base damage. Right-Click: Water spit. Only works on land/on surface of water. Uses up 100 water collected by a water source (like water jars, rivers, etc.) and spits it at targets, dealing topor depending on their size/weight (for example a dodo will get more topor than a rex), deals more damage depending on melee damage. Also stuns flyers for some seconds. 20 base damage. C : Taunt/Roar. The Irritator roars. Passive effects: Gang boost: The Irritator gets a gang boost when with others of it's kind, boosting damage resistance and damage. Boost goes up to 4. Just like the Morellatops, standing near water will make the Irritator drink and store water. You can also drink this water, however only if you make it spit in a canteen because it spits it's water at such a high speed atempting to fill a water skin, water jar or your mouth with it's spit would destroy it or you. The Irritator can store up to 1000 water. Taming method Taming an Irritator is not an easy task. Too resilient for tranqs, the only way to knock out an Irritator is by making it hit itself in the head with it's own water spit. "How do I do that?", you might wonder. Well, there is something called shields and i think they're a bit under used so I'll give them some love. First you gotta trap the Irritator in a bear trap (both work) so it can't get to you with it's bites. This will cause it to only use it's spit attack until it gets out of the trap. When it's going to spit, block with your shield and watch the water projectiles bounce right back in it's face until it gets out of gets knocked out. Don't worry about it topor running, they're too aggressive to want to run away. And if your wondering, no trapping it in a typical taming pen won't make it take topor damage if you reflect the bullet, and yes you can reflect the bullets with shields wich is one of their weakness. When the Irritator is knocked out, just feed it some meat (it prefers fish but regular meat also works) until it's tamed. Saddle learned at level 49 like the baryonyx's. Art Not my art, got it from wikipedia. I sadly can't draw so this will be enough. Irritator Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irritator Well well well, my job here is done. The Irritator is one of my favorite, underrated dinos of all time and i'd love to see it appear in fjördur, so please, if you liked this post, upvote it or else. Also Irritator Molestie roughly means "irritating annoyance" and i'd just like to put it out there lol.

  15. You know, I was thinking of an idea for it. Should a "unique" saddle for it be made, one idea I thought of was something similar to and inspired by the Trike Titan from the 2006 real-time strategy game, ParaWorld. How ironic because not only are the tribes in that game who use that titan unit based on Vikings, Fjordur in and of itself is built to have a Viking theme and feel to it.

  16. I would love to see more hadrosaurs in this game, especially a giant like Edmontosaurus.

  17. The answer to what Wildcard is doing to stop cheaters is NOTHING. I litteraly just logged off a server because someone was spamming the chat with a link to where he was selling aimbot, ESP complete scan of a server showing where everyone and the cheat even had all dlc unlock so if you bought his program you would get all DLC without buying the DLC from Wildcard.. I have a screenshot of the game where he is selling it in the global chat but I can upload it here since the file is too big.

  18. Since we know Ark 2 will be on a new engine, it would be silly to expect it to have the same problems. I may not buy it right out of the gates, but I will be open to considering a purchase if the reviews are consistently good over a couple of months. My intuitions tell me that it will not have the same bugs and exploits - it will have different bugs/exploits, and will likely have just as many players more than willing to take advantage of them to crush my playing experience. But I will hope for the best.

  19. Yeah agreed, after "Wild Card" deleted my full gen 1 and gen 2 missions and refused to restore them. I decided it was time to quit the game and have been happily playing bug free games for months!!! I'm enjoying othewr games because that cant be deleted because other companies have backup contingencies and restore lost data. Wild Card staff are amongst the scummiest incompetent people on the planet. No care for customers, no care for customer data, very happy to let data get deleted and just close tickets. Thats the kind of scum Wild Card is.

  20. Running an unofficial cluster of PVE servers (Nitrado) for Xbox/PC Microsoft players. Looking for casual players and even beginners just wanting to build, tame, breed and challenge themselves with some bosses. Current maps are the Island, Scorched Earth, and Ragnarok. Much more to come. Current number of active tribe members is 6. Looking for at least 4 more.
