  1. Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! Our next free expansion map, Fjordur, is right around the corner. On June 12th, prepare to dive into Nordic-inspired adventure with 4 new creatures (Andrewsarchus, Fjordhawk, Desmodus, Fenrir) that are native to Fjordur! Traverse a fantastical multi-layered wonderland with a frosty Nordic theme. Four unique islands, Vardiland, Vannaland, Bolbjord and Balheimr, and the mystical realms; Jotunheim, Vanaheim, and Asgard, offer elaborate cave systems resplendent with Scandinavian ruins and vast monolithic entrances. Fjordur is the second community map released with completely new creatures, and the second to include another creature chosen by the ARK community. As we near closer to the launch date on June 12th, we'll be sharing more information regarding the timing of the rollout and servers! For more information on the creatures arriving with Fjordur, check out this Community Crunch post. There will be an ongoing EVO Event from Friday, May 27th until Tuesday, May 31st. You can find the rates below: *Note that these bonuses are multiplicative of the game's standard 1x rates. Official Servers: 2x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding (Imprint, Maturation, hatch/Gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval Small Tribe Servers: 4.5x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding (Imprint, Maturation, hatch/Gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval ARKPocalypse: 5x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding (Imprint, Maturation, hatch/Gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval Classic: 6x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding (Imprint, Maturation, hatch/Gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval Fan Art Gallery | Screenshot Gallery | Artist Feedback Form DragonHeart#6424 Creator: GG Fizz Check out this video GG Fizz released last month where he walks through the creation of a massive Medieval castle!

  2. 2 meters is roughly 6' 6". 16GB is fine for most gaming: https://www.techreviewer.com/tech-answers/is-32gb-of-ram-worth-it-for-gaming/ From the link (32GB): "It allows you to run less-optimized indy games smoothly." AKA, Ark.

  5. If you have a decent PC and you want to play ARK then don't bother console. Wildcard ignored all the request and sugestions sofar regarding console optimisation, the UI is realy M/K oriented. Furthermore, at the moment PS5 is terrible unstable. Inspite of @Cedric speaking of a fast fix for PS5 users in januari it only got worse since then.

  6. I do not know everything first hand, so you may want to look on for others to help with answers, but.....Currently ONLY xbox series x has no tethering. In fact as far as I know, only the xbox series x got any improvements/no tethering. Resources seem to be respawning, however Id still strongly suggest shortening the respawn timer a smidgen anyhow, just in case. Yes, that bug still occurs, however the devs have made adjustments and it does show, however it is still present. Best thing I can tell you is to shorten the respawn timer, and do your metal harvesting when you first log in for the day. Its not a bad thing to do online either, kinda like a daily chore list.....Fill feeding trough's, harvest metal, let the metal burn while checking babies, ect. ect. Then actually do what you want to. Caves, fishing, hit beaver dams for past, whatever. Xbox series x got the improvements for all the graphics and such and there is a very noticeable improvement, however I can not confirm anything personally......If I had to guess, its better foliage coverage. Ray tracing. And more "stable" FPS. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- As for the best looking, fastest FPS, and mods, the only way to go in that department is PC. With the introduction of the new CPU's and GPU's last year, the ultimate experiance is PC. If you want to spend $2000 on a system, you can buy the parts to peice together a very decent system with the latest ryzen CPU, and 3060 or even a 3080 GPU if you can get a deal going. However do be very wary on buying any "prebuilt" systems. Alienware is a very bad prebuilt PC example, and you can look up GamerNexus on youtube to see why. As for mods, the only version of ark you can buy that offers mod support is with Steam. However if you ever want to play online with other console users you will need to buy the microsoft version.

  7. Has anyone noticed how terrible the supply crates are now on Genesis 2? I was getting great loot just a week ago and now I get absolutely nothing. I'm a casual gamer and can't really dedicate 12 hours a day to the game, it was great being able to get great loot and play the game without the grind for a bit... Unfortunately, as always, I got raided and all that great loot is gone and can't seem to replace it using the same supply crate farming technique.

  9. My idea is to replace the cold mechanical auto-decay timer with a dynamic system with special effects and an element of chance. Frequency Disaster Can Destroy Common Biomes Effects High Typhoons Thatch Beaches Wind, Rain Medium Wild Fires Thatch and Wood Forests Fire, Wind, Wild creatures flee Low Earthquakes Stone Harvestable Nodes Shaking, Creature behavior set to passive flee Rare Volcanos Anything Mountains Shaking, Smoke, Fire, Lightning, wild creatures flee This would be a better game design because it would prevent maps from getting clogged up with superfluous structures and put players to work repairing and prioritizing structures. Player spawn areas and rare resource node areas could have higher rates of disasters that would do-away with the need to pillar areas. The random nature of disasters would add an element of surprise that would keep the experience fresh rather than mechanically logging in just to render bases to keep them from auto-decaying.

  11. There should be a way to separate the balances made to dinosaurs and game mechanics between PvE and PvP. Multiple balances have made PvE nothing but hard. Managarmr being a recent example, in PvE they're useless now thanks to the many balances made to make PvP better. Flier nerf was a huge change in PvE making fliers and transportation harder by forcing us to land since PvP was taking to the skies too often and the game tried to "ground" the fight

  12. Good luck proving that though. For someone to have played in your tribe for several years and to then have suddenly turned on you I would say is fairly "unique". It's quite possible he just got bored and decided to go out with a bang. Does happen people do stupid things. If he did get paid to stab you in the back after several years of playing with you then kudos to him that's some next level treachery. A true master of the dark arts. I'd welcome him in my band of cutthroats anytime.

  13. The moment the bossbabies are adult I set them up in a corner around feeding trough and start leveling on health. No need to use healers and when fully healed there are the next few levels. After they hit 100k HP (+28 lvls) I pod them, the melee levels don't cause the need for food or healing so can be done anytime. Never had any issues this way, just don't save up too much levels when doing health. Edit: Did they starve when you were there or did you leave them?

  16. so you have a game full of dinos but a giga destroys all land creatures and stegos are the best for soaking, balance it out cap alot lower so if you wanna fight with a rex or something you can, or a soaker if you have a dino that can take more bullets cant be picked of cant be shot off what the point in using anything else, also take away giga rage you raise a dino for 10 days and one bite from another and its pretty much dead just cap them at like 400 melee and put rexs right up or just balance them all so it encourages people to tame new creature raise new creatures and stuff id proabay say the majority of people have never used an allosaurus

  17. Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! Fjordhawk makes its Creature Spotlight debut in the Community Crunch this week! Fjordhawk can be a useful companion if you're able to forge a bond with one by taming it. This playful species has made a game of tasks you might find daunting. If you need to fetch something, Fjordhawk can fly to nearby targets and retrieve them for you! Fjordhawk makes its appearance when Fjordur releases in June 2022!! The free DLC map, Fjordur, is right around the corner! Here's a quick summary if you're looking for the dossiers of the new creatures. Will Andrewsarchus, Desmodus, or Fjordhawk be your first tame on Fjordur? Serving as the first winner of the Community Creature Vote, Andrewsarchus makes its way to Fjordur packing an arsenal of utility! Andrewsarchus may seem sluggish while foraging for a meal, but they can move unexpectedly fast when provoked. Once tamed, its saddle will allow you to mount a minigun to the back of it! Announced as the third creature to land on Fjordur, Desmodus was the second winner of the Community Creature Vote! The original creature submission garnered a lot of attention and the rest is ARK community history! Desmodus won (39,781 votes) vs. Carcharodontosaurus (24,419 votes) in the 9th and final round! As you might imagine, Desmodus prefers to hang out in dark places, waiting for its unsuspecting prey! If you're lucky enough to tame one, you can send Desmodus to snatch up small prey or saddle up and vanish into the darkness. Looking to dive right into the action, Fjordhawk can forge close bonds with humans as wholeheartedly as any canine or primate. A tamed Fjordhawk is a surprisingly playful companion that is very capable of fetching targets that you point out. A well-trained fjordhawk can locate injured prey and communicate its find to you. There will be an ongoing EVO Event from Friday, May 20th until Monday, May 23rd. You can find the rates below: *Note that these bonuses are multiplicative of the game's standard 1x rates.

  18. That setting cause issues with artifacts spawning outside the map on [at least] Ragnarok so that is something to keep in mind. That said, I believe the setting OP is looking for is: AllowCrateSpawnsOnTopOfStructures=false So that beacons don't spawn near man-made structures. PS: I've fix your wiki link.

  19. No, not all know, that's a silly answer. There will always be people who are playing in single player, or non-dedicated, or are simply playing with friends and none of them know about it yet.

  21. I been playing Ark on Nintendo Switch since it launched on it, over 5k hours logged, in all these years these last two evo events are the first we have ever been included in. We have been left out of everything practically and the absolute worse Ark experience to be had on any platform. Lets hope your promises aren't just more lies we were fed when we bought this unsupported version. Keep up the good work.

  22. I agree with you completely, there's no excuse for this glitch still being in the game. Having said that... if you're playing on a dedicated server that you control, or even if you're playing using non-dedicated server that you control, you can use admin commands to fix/repair/make-up-for nearly any glitch in the game. We ran into the exact same problem on our private server and we just rolled back to the most recent save. Creating & restoring saves in single-player or non-dedicated is somewhat less convenient but it's still something you can learn to do with just a bit of work. The problem with ARK is that it's such a great idea that it's basically a money printing machine, so WildCard never had to be a good company in order to make money, and haven't bothered to fix some pretty important glitches that have been with the game for years (like the one you ran into). There's no excuse for it, I'm with you in that I'm buying any future WC products, but as long as you've already spent the money to own a copy then it's worth taking the time to prepare your backups in case of problems like this. On our private server we do manual backups every time we're going to do anything that's important or requires a lot of materials, even cave runs. Your time is to valuable to let game glitches screw up your fun, but the game can still be fun if you make your own backups for safety.

  24. i tamed a level 145 quetz on my island server and it didnt end in disaster. technically it was my first quetzal tame also. took almost 2 hours and i netted it next to some guys base, so creature spawns were heavily reduced. it was about 3 in the morning when it finally tamed and i almost fell asleep multiple times, which lead to a few close calls. didnt lose any effectiveness tho! happy with my first high level quetz tame, got some decent stats but nothing spectacular. its going to be really helpful for building up a breeding base on the iceberg. i already have a lot of the structures pre-crafted in a vault at my temp base and it would take MANY trips back and forth with the argents to move it all. only caveat is that the only platform saddle i have is a mc and extremely expensive for me right now. if we get evo this weekend im definitely going to be using it to build , ive been living out of a fancy stone box for many months and even playing solo its getting very cramped with all these tames everywhere breeding for mutations. even my cryo fridges are getting full now and i dont have much room on the land arch (whitesky peak, island)

  27. I did It helped that it got distracted by some wooden pillars and a bear trap. I didn't use any real cage though, so it could still chase me around. Destroyed some pillars, smacked me around a rock, ran off into the distance and thought it was running, but turned around and barreled towards me. I knocked it out before it got to me, 10/10 would do it again.

  28. You might also try raising babies over water. Meaning setup a base or ocean platform on water, then raise them there. Not the put the baby in the water trick that got patched out. **I think it's possible** - While the system does put an area in stasis when no players are around, the system also still checks on dinos that are placed over areas where they could drown.

  30. The fastest way I have found to get paste is to run missions on Gen2 and then simply buy from the HLNA store. With a decent imprinted giga you can run Alpha Velo stalk in less than ten minutes. Run it three times and you will have enough hex to slotcap yourself with paste, well any slots that are not filled mission gear you find useful. If I am doing my math right you could fill a dedicated storage in about 3 hours this way.

  32. I wouldn't be against seasonal dinosaurs. Ones only available during certain times of the year. That said, I think the TLC updates are pretty good so far. Perhaps they will eventually get to the majority of the older, less notable dinos for TLC?

  33. Hey Woody, Ice Worm Queen is a good way to get loot but I have to agree with previous posts that the best way on Rag is running the 5 desert loot crates over and over again. I have pulled decent Aprentice, Journeyman, and MasterCraft Saddles / BPs for Yuty from them. But if you do the Queen again, be sure to pod all dinos at the top of the waterfall. When you get out of the water walk forward (out to the point of the rock). The game will calculate challengers and as soon as it tells you the Queen is coming... turn and toss your pod. You will have just enough time to jump into the saddle before she is on top of you. I like to use a thyla but many things will work. And yes, there is an invisible barrier you need to cross after you get out of the water... and you have to cross it before you unpod any dinos to start the calculation. Sitting in the waterfall until the queen goes away does not work for loot. You actually have to defeat her before the red loot crates appear.

  35. I completely agree!!! PVP SHOULD NEVER EFFECT/CONTROL PVE GAME PLAY!!! Otherwise developers need to decide from day one if the game is PVP or PVE controlled. IF PVP, those of us who do not play PVP, can spend our cash elsewhere. Destiny was awesome, then year 2 and 3 PVP controlled 100% f the game mechanics. When Destiny 2 was release, I spent my money elsewhere.

  36. I'm okay with the flyer nerf, it made it so players would opt to use other creatures instead of just solely using a lightning fast flyer. I know also that it is hard to code in separate entries for PVE and PVP when it comes to creatures. Essentially, there would be two different instances of the same creature. Not real sure if making separate settings for PVE and for PVP for dinos is something that we would likely see, but it would be cool.

  37. As the title says, we need SEPARATE buffs/nerfs/balance tweaks for PVE and PVP. 2 completely different game modes with completely different strategies, objectives and player types need different tweaks to the game. This has become especially evident in the cases of the extreme and repeated nerfs of the Managarmr, a new and versatile creature that quickly became as useful as throwing small feces at a wild Giga... All because of the outcry of a portion of PVP players, while completely ignoring, disregarding the PVE community. While PVP was focused on griefing fellow players with Manas, PVE players needed that versatility to focus on boss taming/killing. You can see the frustration on both sides. PVP is still and will be forever complaining about Manas, while PVE clings to being able to still play with that creature. This is only one example. For two game modes you need two game settings. It is only logical, as a famous saying goes. So please, for the sake of the PVE and PVP communities, revert those extreme tweaks and focus on implementing them completely different in PVE and PVP game modes. This might be the most urgent game balance. PS: DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT make this a discussion over PVE/PVP supremacy. If you want to know, they both suck equally bad for different reasons!

  39. I'd logged out for the day after dumping what seemed like an excess amount of meat into the trough, logged in the next day and looked around and everything seemed fine. Wasn't till later I noticed a few deaths in the tribe log, then seeing that all the food had been depleted frm trough, looked around and saw some half empty food bars and had to go on another meat run. Only then on the meat run thinkin DILO, was I like oh duh! Yea well now I know, don't freakin level all the hp at once. At least not with out watching the food.

  41. My prediction for how to tame a Fjordhawk based on the difficulty and process of every tame released since Gen 1. 1. You must be wearing a full bunny cost placed over primitive cloth armor, no worries if you didn't get it during Eggcellent Extravaganze, they are for sale in the hexagon store after each event ends (lol). 2. Insert Rockarrot into rectum. Must be placed single and no stacking cause that would be weird. 3. Jump off cliff that Fjordhawk nest is and do bunnyhop emote as you soar past them on the way down. See #1 for how to get bunnyhop emote (lol). You must be within .3 meters of the Fjordhawk for the taming process to take effect. 4. Server save you did it at the wrong time. 5. Must not have any tames uncryo'd within 800^2 meters or otherwise their excellent eyesight will cause them to be on the defensive. 6. Repeat Step #3 7. Gain 0.7% taming effectiveness on a level 10 Fjordhawk. 8. Rockarrot decay timer fades go to step #2 you have lost all taming effectiveness.

  42. Just to clear this up for Nintendo Switch owners, after initial release and unfulfilled promises of the Ark experience on Switch like everyone else (which was all lies btw) from over 3 years ago with the old 7 year old beta build thats been broken since launch, Wild Card has graciously decided to allow us the actual full unbroken version, coded for the game system properly this time. Wild Card also intends to allow us free access to all the DLC maps that were free to begin with for everyone else, yes, that's right folks, Wild Card actually sales pitching Switch owners with free maps that were FREE TO BEGIN WITH. Then, Wild Card is also gonna charge you extra for all the content dated back 7 years and since the launch of your broken version 3 years ago. To top it off, Wild Card would now also like to include Nintendo Switch owners in all events including evolution events that you have been denied access to for over 3 years. Congratulations Nintendo Switch owners, feel special about this. They might actually not be lying to us this time.

  43. Okay this is getting ridiculous, Stop voting for Carchara, we don't need any more big carnivores. Anyone who says otherwise either flies everywhere in game, or is just a small child too young to even be online alone never mind playing ARK at all. It's not even adding any original ideas, people only want it because "Big sharptooth lol!" Just look at all the other creatures ahead of it, The bison alone is leading with nearly 300 votes! AND it adds something new and original to the game. Then you got the Titanoceratops in second with a lead of over 150 votes, again adding ideas that are new and original! See a pattern here yet? No? Well have a look at our current 3d place lead (as of posting this), The Armadillasuchus with a small but still noticeable lead of over 30 votes... And what's this? It too is is new and original, AND NOT A CARNIVORE! What does Carcara add? Nothing! Nothing that either improves the lives of survivors or would end up replacing another (and debatably BETTER) creature. And for those of you saying "Oh it can just be on par with the rex/spino", Those two animals are where they are for a damn good reason. Adding yet another big theropod would just throw a wrench in their dynamic and would result in one or the other (or worse both) never being used again. We don't NEED any more big carnivores, period. Full Stop! End of Story. Bye Bye, Cya in ARK 2 where it might not get added either.
