  1. And again there’s enough of complaining! 3x XP and 3x farms! I think it's great because I can concentrate on ONE thing and don't have to work with the baby as well. Thanks, WC!

  2. Sorry but this would be true in around 2017 but this base is garbage today. Double walling/foundationing is dead and has been for a while. That's just another 20 seconds with an arthopluera, if they are at your walls that's not gonna make a difference. Behemoth gates are also obsolete, they simply provide the attackers free coverage and you won't see them on any official servers except maybe to block a cave entrance but even then prolly not. Only current viable base are the OP caves. Other than that you're just gonna get blasted by star foxes, manas, poison wyvs, etc. Unfortunately, open

  3. Dlcs killed the game for me since I only ever wanted to play pvp, I wish they add a classic ark cluster to consoles but I doubt they will. I'm optimistic about this new lost island map being more primitive themed but if its going to allow transfers from the other dlcs then its just gonna get ruined imo.

  4. It completely broke the Dedicated Tek Storage on the Unofficial Server I play. Since our pile size is bigger (like 900 metal instead of 300) it used to display the incorrect number of piles. Now of course there is no more piles, but it doesn't accept more of the total number than the size on offical servers... so it means that even thought much of my dedicated didn't have 1800 piles yet, I can add to it anymore, and if take out, it won't accept back in, since it is over the puny limit they have on official servers... if I wanted to play the grind that is an official server I would have joined

  5. It might be too easy to abuse the fact that dedis can float. Imagine placing a foundation on a skiff and snapping a bunch of dedis to it, flying the skiff to some destination, and then destroying the foundation, leaving floating dedis. Being able to strategically place a floating dedi floor to stage operations from could be a little op

  6. I raised one giga baby pre-maewing and had a fully grown adult so I could have a breeding pair. Got a couple of eggs from them just in case but didn’t raise any more because yeesh. And that was with cryopods. Since the maewing I have raised 5 more I think. They are hands-down the best QoL tame for me. And so easy to tame (though that means my jerboa hoard has been surpassed with a maewing hoard ). Y’all who were around pre-pods? Ugh I raise a glass to you.

  7. I've had it happen a lot when DLing Shadowmanes (Only on SP, not when on a server) I now close the transmitter/obelisk between each download and move the tame away a little .. I also do a manual 'savveworld' before I start too, lol, just in case, but the transmitter is it's own separate save. I play on PS4 atm btw

  10. I mean, it is what it is. Ultimately, the issue is it's an open sandbox game. And this is what a sandbox game devolves to in the end. One solution would be map phasing where everyone is on the "same" map but in separate phases based on character level. Blizzard did something similar with WoW quite a few years ago. But that's a game build from scratch on their own framework. I'm not sure if UE4(5) is capable at that.

  13. I'm pretty sure that the game defaults to PvE rules to single-player which is why, for example, you can use cryopods without having to worry about cryosickness if you un-pod multiple dino's in a short time. If you want single-player to run like a PvP game (which would allow you to harvest unclaimed bodies, but would also introduce cryosickness with a 300 second timer) you have to change the configuration settings on your single-player game. It's not a change, AFAIK. To the best of my knowledge this is how single-player has always worked.

  14. Let's end the abuse in the game of players who are 24/7 behind the screen and have no social life because they make money selling ARK objects and dinosaurs, (you just have to do a simple Google search to find them) these are some how many ideas to improve the experience in ARK 2, you can add your own ideas to see how you think even if wildcard passes from us. My ideas: 1. Primitive PVP only. 2. NO damage mutations or a damage limit per mutation. (no abuse) 3. Reasonable structure limit, that you cannot own a complete server with foundations with only one tribe. 4. DO NOT downlo

  16. Many thanks. I appreciate your words, guys. I lost farming dinos (Doedicurs, castoroides, etc). They were high level but it will be fine to tame and make them grow again. If it was because of a bug it would be more painful, but it was just a silly mistake I made

  17. ARK [Epic Games] server browser not displaying PING Hi all, I've tried searching the forums to no avail so thought it best asking. I've got Ark on Epic Games and have noticed when searching for servers, the ping for every server is N/A - I've attached a screenshot to show. Does anyone else playing thru Epic Games Launcher have this issue? At first I thought it was a setting (was worth a try) but am realising it may be an unresolved issue. Would love to find out if it's not just me having this issue as searching for a good server to start on is tedious when playing

  18. Ugh wildcard has almost completely ruined dedi boxes, those withdraw 1, 5, and 10 options don't withdraw stacks they just withdraw 1, 5 and 10. As in if I click withdraw 10 on a dedi box with metal in it, it only withdraws 10 metal, how stupid is that! Those withdraw buttons NEED to withdraw entire stacks of 1, 5, and 10 otherwise they're useless. Now I can't withdraw even 2 stacks of metal at a time as it bases it on my character's weight, which is at 400. You broke the dedi boxes Wildcard, now fix them! Sure there's the transfer all button, but many of us don't want to transfer the massive a

Build a Base at red ob and taming every Level one Dino what we found and transfer them to normal pve server. Now i have a Level one Parasaur Noob alert at my Base on Ragna and some Rex level one for breeding.

  20. Yesterday evening we made some preparations to build a small base on Genesis 2 (main base on Crystal Isles). Today we started by making it with some basic utilities (beds, (cryo/)fridge, fabricator, vaults, etc.) Then we went off looking for a Mantis with some decent damage stat. (Useful to do so on Genesis because you can see the wild stats before you choose to tame them.) That was a bit of a struggle because one of the two we captured didn't want to eat the second Deathworm horn, but in the end we ended up with some nice results (both a male and a female). Later we went off farming som

  22. It sounds to me like many of the OPs ideas are close to what we see from Wildcards early trailers and would promote more of a game of active base assault/defense with primitive weapons/dinosaurs than offline raiding and wiping. Now I know that the current state of PvP is fun for many, but unless you are in love with trying to survive in a rathole or luck into a megatribe, Ark PvP has a reputation of being unkind for many: players grind for hours/days/weeks, and then everything gets wiped out when they are asleep. This would naturally be frustrating for many and a good incentive to stop

  23. Never posted on the Forums despite thousands of hours in ark... but I'm fed up and don't know where else to go... Why do we continue to support a company that doesn't support us? I set an alarm to try and maximize the x3 (I'm a returning player whose tribemates mostly moved on and/or let the bases decay... which is fine as I left as well) so I was super excited for the x3 (no complaint about no breeding- I take what they give me and adapt what I do during evos around that- but given my recent return was super excited to get x3 the progress on my work/farming) So I get

  25. When it comes to Dedi boxes - it would be better to make kind of transfer option from dedi to other dinos/structures (within for example feeding through radius).. just like many mods do. For example transfer 5000 wood to one of the replicators or to dino. And this method could be useful for any structure, not just dedis.. for example its very common thing to popcorn out / whip gather items from dinos / indy forges / replicators / vaults and others.

  26. They do a great job, the only thing you have to take in account that ARK seems to calculate first the spoilage and then the consumption when you log on again. This caused the loss of about 15 giga kids over time. And something you have to pay attention to in PvE is ALLIES: When friends with the best intentions visit your base on a hungry (recovering?) dino it will consume the content of your throughs. My first 2 eggs took me about 6 or 7 weeks, got 1 M and 2 F's. Ofcourse I lost 1 of the F's within a few days... Drowned overencumbered when defending when I defended myself

  31. Sometimes I notice the same thing, been a long time since Ive seen it in my own personal inventory but recently its the same with the transmitter. The way I can find the items I put in the transmitter is by typing in the search bar for the item then it magically appears. Also sometimes when I am building I forget that I put lets say walls in my hotbar, then I go to grab more walls and I am like where TF did they go only to realize a bit later they are in my hotbar. It sounds like its not likely these are the same issues you are experiencing but I figured I would mention just in case.

  33. Game Developement can be hard and expensive, But I think that A kickstarter for a VR implementation to put the game on a level akin to "No Man's Sky" "Boneworks" "Pavlov VR" "VRChat" would be a good way to gauge player desire for such a feature and to fund such a venture as well. With The Current Iteration Of VR in the game, Only Oculus Headsets Can Access VR, Which Excludes more than half the market. Personally I own a Valve Index and cant access the VR Function By Default. I Hope you take the idea into consideration, You guys are awesome keep up the good work!

  34. Hi everyone! So I play on a friendly PVE server (Wiredcat), and for some time, we have been using a little utility that we wrote for that server to help locate dinos/etc. - a bit like ArkViewers front end, and I think there is another tool or 2 out there but I haven't ever used them. However, this tool has no actual access to save game data etc. as that sits on the server. Players can't get to server files! Technically, the ark server uses the amazing ArkViewer to extract save game data, and then goes on to publish it via a web page for users to access, and help them find dinos, both

  35. Having a great time on Extinction! I play with my best friend on a private server and since autumn 2020, we've been making our way through the story maps. Before that, we dabbled a bit on Ragnarok, Center and Crystal Isles and then decided to start the Island over and ascend each of the DLC maps. About a month ago, after ascending from Aberration, we started on Extinction. I know I'm late to the party, but this is a really fun map! It's so good to have constant daylight in the city/wasteland areas after the oppressive atmosphere of Aberration. (Aberration has been one of my favourite

  36. I was able to find a low level tek stryder with the saddlebags and excavation rig. What an amazing tame. I have been making ark daily trips to the space biome and cranking out all the resources. I also tentatively poked my head into the Rockwell area on gen 2. Scary place but not overly so. Had a noggin take over my thyla. His bites hurt! I rocketed up to the sky and waited till the noggin fell off. Not sure if I want to try and tame one as I'm only singleplayer pve, but there is the achievement....

  40. Bunny ears??? On a Giga, serious??? Evreybody should know Giga's need glasses to spot Gompies in the foliage! Stacks of raw meat last about a day, logging in every 2 hours is not needed when using Maewings for babies and enough feeding throuhgs for juvies. The numbers of babies you want to raise are more dictating the times you have to log in. Since the introduction of Maewings, R-seeds and incubators breeding is very much simplified. Ballance the numbers you are raising according to the time you want to spent on meatruns or the size you can spend on species R. The tool

  42. It's ludicrous how long it takes to raise creatures even during breeding events. You'd have to be unemployed and or have no life to be able to raise even with rates increased so I'd happily see the breeding time massively increase well beyond evo rates. X 10 is still too long for those of us who have jobs families and responsibilities outside of our 21st centuries tamagotchi

  43. Hi LoadedCrysis here, Who remembers the days of early access? When we would get New Dinosaurs on the PC and Console every single month? Well I have thought of a really awesome idea that would defiantly be one step to growing Ark even more and bringing fresh content constantly to the game. So I believe there is already a lot of Dinosaurs in Ark survival evolved, which is great, but i think there are a lot of dinos that are not used that much anymore or are just a bit boring, especially if your someone like me who has played the game for over 3 years. It would be fantastic

I still don't know how to use many of them yet, but I will get there. So, after I finally found a piece of land to call home, I put down a few foundations nestled in some rocks on the west coast to hold a few basic items. However, I didn't want to start building right away in fear that there could be a better spot around the bend so I made a raft. And I made it with a taming pen up front and a small workshop/living space in back. Then I set sail. I traveled d

  47. Thanks. That is the concept I choose to hold onto... I won in the end. It was not pretty but I think I learned a lot this way. Therizinos are sooo much easier to get through the gate AND much easier to navigate all the twists and turns of the cave. Don't get me wrong, having a good Rex is always good, especially one that can stay up front and tank anything the cave wants to throw your way. But there simply is not enough room in there to fight with a herd. I had 4 rexes with me but I don't think I used more than two at any one time until I fought the giga. If I had to give advice on that
