  1. *sigh* Thank God for fanarts or else those Community Crunches could look VERY empty... EDIT : I'm so tired of being teased about upcoming things in tweets ("there's a lot coming ! promise !") and every week seeing THIS in Community Crunches. Even if you have nothing to announce, here are a few ideas that could make CCs meatier : - a recap of the most important tweets posted by the WildCard team in the past week - a recap of videos posted by Ark Youtubers in the past week. Or some clips from Ark streamers of the past week. I'm sure they'd be happy to send them to Cedric for promotiona

  2. In this edition of the Community Crunch, we’ll be teasing you with some juicy TLC 3 info along with giving you an overview of what we’ve been focusing on lately behind the scenes. The much-awaited TLC is getting closer and we’re excited to get some of our re-imagined favorites into your hands soon! Download the high-resolution verion We’ll be reconceiving these veteran ARK friends via visual and mechanical upgrades that will introduce new elements of gameplay. Much appreciated community feedback drew our attention towards the Woolly Mammoth (among others) and it’s time fo

  3. We have taken a look at the Crystal Isle spawners and everything appears to be in order. The map is quite large compared to the others, so it might be that you just haven't encountered as many creatures when actively playing due to its sheer size. Which platform and game mode do you play on? We'll take a deeper dive. There's an argument that we could perhaps increase the spawn count so that more creatures are available, but it's a lever we have to be careful with as the map already carries a large performance requirement to its size, having more spawns would take this up another notc

  4. Wow does that ever miss the point. 1) A topic can be "old" and still be valid, there are lots of those on these forums because WildCard has some terrible idea about player care and customer service. 2) People stealing in PvE has absolutely nothing to do with ARK being "hard", it just means that their implementation of PvE is still misguided and wrong. The entire point of PvE, in any game, even a survival game, is that it is the job of the game to prevent players from interfering with other players as much as possible. And giving players the ability to steal from each other in PvE com

  5. Steam store version = main version, always up to date, and moddable Windows store version = neglected version, always lagging behind the Steam one, and NO MODS Epic store version = released very recently, no mods for now (should change in the future) As you can see, choice is easy. Steam is the way to go. Another thing to know : players using the Windows store version can only play with console users. Players using the Steam version cannot play with console users, but they can play with players using the Epic store version if the server has no mods.

  7. This has been part of ARK since Day 1 of Early Access, it's hard to imagine where you get the idea that this is even slightly new. You install additional languages/fonts on your computer. The reason they show up as boxes for you is because you're computer doesn't know what language they're using. Edit: This was wrong, after further conversation I remembered that in the past I had used this "Global Font" mod. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=732646921 It can be used on Official servers because it's not a typical mod, as far as the game is concerned i

  9. This morning I played for a bit before work. I thinking of maybe expanding the garden since I have sooo many different seeds to plant, then decided I better do something about the fertilizer (or lack there of) problem. So I gave in and tamed the first parasaur to walk by. It was a 55 and tamed up quick enough. So now I have a saber and an oversized green donkey. Now it is a waiting game, collect poo and toss it in the compost bin. While I was waiting I decided to take the saber out to collect some meat when I saw a Pteranodon swoop over the trees in front of me. It was a 140. I can'

  10. I hope they are working on Ark 2 with the new unreal engine! Also i wish they'd go more back to the roots and make Ark 2 a more dino/prehistorical game with less modern or fantasy creatures and with more primitive stuff. Sort of more cave men tribes fighting each other and dinos instead of just sniping each other with the modern sniper rifles the whole time...

  11. I wonder if this TLC patch will also update the models on the stego's corrupted, tek, aberrant and genesis counterpart. I sure do hope so though.

  12. Mammoth sounds awesome but Stego seems wasteful. They already had a strong role in both PvP and PvE. This leaves the Megalodon as useless as ever, the Quetzal trumped as a farmer enhancement by the Argy, Karkinos, and Hovercraft, and the Bronto a distant memory in PvP and the same berry gatherer in PvE. That's first take, however. Hopefully I am wrong and the Stego does expand its capabilities for both game modes.

  13. Alright, since you obviously don't want the community to contribute to this thread I will go ahead and lock it for you. WC will be able to unlock and respond to it if they want or need more details from you. If you have not done so already, please fill the Bug Report form if you wish to report what you believe to be a bug and it will be investigated by the QA team. Thanks!

  14. In the end, it’s all just pixels. You didn’t earn or create anything. The game will stop being developed at some point and the servers will shut down. As if hours of playing an action shooter game for months were hours wasted. You were entertained during those hours. That’s what you paid for If you only log on to reset timers it’s best to rip the bandaid off. It’s liberating.

  15. Sure, that would help but of the two options we prefer that players are able to have more tames and keep the wild creature count at a consistent level to other maps, but these are definitely settings you could tweak on your own server! As for decreasing in mating time, it might just result in more people mating

  16. Hello! Thank you so much for taking the time to answer! Will it help the performance if every tribe was limited 250 dinos instead of the original 500? (And maybe decrease mating times 50%). Considering the large size of the map, as you said, it's a paradise for breeders throwing 500 / 1000 / 1500 / 2000 dinosaurs out to mate them non stop. (An alliance focused on breeding only). Decreasing the numbers of dinosaurs out should help improve that, right? Edit: Typo.

  19. Would have given you 100 likes, if I could. So funny and so sweet!!! Loved that post. Maybe we got a new survivor on the ark? Congrats on your Ptera. It was a major step for me and I'm still very new to the game, too. I think you might have a chance to find the saber while flying. Hope it has enough food to survive on it's own until then. You might want to check your tribe-log to see if it's still there. Have fun and keep it up! Eleusius.

  20. it's been a few days since I joined the PVE Primitive Plus server. So far, I like it. TBH I love all different crafting engrams. 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

  22. Damn ladyteruki hit the nail right on the head! It would be amazing to read and see all of what she’s talking about. In a way you are promoting your game. Maybe explain the process of what you guys go through in fixing bugs and broken aspects of the game (obviously not in great detail due to dbag human beings looking for ways to cheat). Maybe pitch some ideas to the community as far as some things whether it would be a good idea or not a good idea. I keep remembering what Cedric said at last year’s 24 hour live stream event about things being introduced into the game and the players comin

I can’t wait to see what my holiday event mammoths look like after the TLC. I know you guys killed it on the argentavis a couple years back, the color regions were far better than the originals!

  28. Hey guys, it's been a while, but I've accomplished a few things. I took on a daily routine to check the swamp where I had last seen a Dimet, since I really need one to do any breeding. It's simply too hot in my area and temperature is sometimes a bit random (i.e. jumping up or down rather than changing). And electricity is still a far way to go. So it's got to be a Dimet. Those guys unfortunately don't live in the friendliest environments and they aren't the most frequent, either. First attempt failed, as I had told you the other day. Well... seeing that place regularly did help and event

  29. It's been awhile since I last posted. So here is what's been going on with me this last week, in a nutshell... Joined my first tribe in PVE Primitive +. The tribes base is much further along than mine but still has a lot of work to do before it is done. Right now I think there are 6 in the tribe. However, 3 have been asleep the whole time and I have never seen their bodies move. 1 I have seen awake twice but he does not stay long and he won't talk to me, lol. The leader that recruited me seems to be a pretty good guy and plays a lot but splits his time back and forth from Rag. So i

  32. (official, Valguero) Today I made four SCUBA tanks, mask, leggings, took my bary (female, as she's less valuable due to lower stats), grabbed some kibble and went into the Abyss. At first I found nothing good, just a bunch of sharks and mantas. I killed them all and went deeper, but there was an alpha megalodon and I'm not dealing with that. So I turned back. In the place of stuff I killed two basilos spawned, both male, but, unfortunately, both level 20. I used one to practice peeling manta shell off a basilo, and then killed it in hopes of a better one spawning. Then I went closer to the ent

  33. Well, this one I know. It happens when the game decides you spawn below ground. Pretty much every login, my location is a little bit off from where I logged off before. Right now I know a place that is relatively safe to log off, but with Ark, nothing's for granted. So, as you said ... store your valuables in a safe place (made a board specifically for that purpose), undress and logoff only after that. This problem can hit you very hard if you log off involuntarily (like your client crashes) and find all your best equipment with your corpse below ground. If you're playing on your own server, t

  34. I've had a string of bad luck. Yesterday, I tried to tame a doedi, only level 10. I don't need anything special right now so I decided a level 10 was better than my pickaxe. Anyway, for some reason it was taking foorrrrrrreeeevvvveeeerrrrr!!! The taming meter was going up very slow like it was a high level creature. After awhile, I force fed it more narcotics and put a stack of berries in the inventory then I ran off to get some other stuff done. I returned about 15 minutes later to find it had woken up. Soooo, I knocked it out again and the same thing happened somewhere between 70-80 pe

On the topic of carrying other Dinos with my Argy I discovered, that some server setting was actually wrong, disabling the "carry other dinos". Changed it and checked - everything easy. Cool - so I can really start taming That's all... over and out. Eleusius.

This is a terrible game for new players...doesnt explain jack...most everything ur gonna have to look up online to find out...how to tame, how to make kibble, where to find this and that, what each dinosaur does, how to fertilize eggs, how much it takes to kill an alpha...etc...and there a tons of consumables that you would never know even exist in the game unless you looked them up online...no good tutorials at all...so glad i got the free version and didnt have to pay 50 dollars for this...pathetic how they want your money but dont even care to explain

  38. They take so long to get to you, weeks even months that it's completely worthless. Most the time they do nothing and it is a huge waste of time & effort. Sad state the game is in rn, bugs that have plagued the game for years. Ark is such a fixable mess, but what other game of this size do you lose your entire character with everything you own essentially as the tribe is now gone, and people just keep on playing, because you just expect it. The biggest issue is the rampant hacking on official, duping, haxbot, esp, aimbot ect. Completely unchecked.

Even cooler. Searched the beach areas for a few utility dinos. Saw some low level ankys. Passed them up. I also saw a 135 bronto and a 150 trike... very tempting but passed them up too. I realized that I was tight on time this morning before going to work and didn't want to start something I couldn't finish. Went home and worked on the house.

  42. Hello again, most of the time I was still grinding (didn't get to play much). Expanded my house a little and other stuff. Eventually I found another Therezino walking about the meadows more or less close to my taming pen and to my amazement found it was already level 120. That's the highest Therezino I have seen in this game so far. So my old and trusty Ptera was my vehicle of choice and I eventually lured him into my taming pen. Need more practice with that, btw, but I did it. Thought everything would be easy from there. Landed in short, but not close distance, set the Ptera to neutral and

  43. Okay, I haven't been on this thread in a while, but I have more news. The past few days, I'd been playing another (also very good) game. Today, I dino-wiped, and went searching. After not too long, I found a 115 baryonyx. I tamed him up (prime fish, I'd forgotten kibble). On the way home I found many more, one of which was 130, but it died fighting a spino, due to the crazy knockback. Stupid spino. I also found a 125 spino (while they can help with the broodmother, my personal lowest level I'll take for a bosskiller is 130. I know, it's close, but you gotta draw the line somewhere) and a

  45. That is your worst argument yet, it's a failed argument in every game, ever. This is a game, it's not real life, people don't pay for games and play games to experience real life, they can already do that for free in their... real life. People spend money on games as entertainment, as something unreal, not as a bizarro-world proxy for real life on their computer. A game that's like real life is not a game, it's not a form of entertainment. it's a training simulator, and that's not what people buy ARK for.
