  1. Whatever changes could be made to improve defense, would also likely be exploited and used against you. Defense is always tougher as your strengths & weaknesses tend to be static, where as a determined attacker can always adapt to leverage new exploits against you.
  2. OP: I'm guessing you mean a server where the tribe member # are super small, basically each tribe would be two people max, but you could still have tons of people playing on the server?
  3. You don't need to be admin, but the server does have to be configured to allow transfers (edit: and not be clustered). It's set to allow transfers by default. If transfers are allowed, simply upload a Dino from the server you play on. Then leave the game and fire up your own non-dedicated hosted session. Go to an obelisk and download your Dino. Then you can run a backup locally of your game files and store them on separate discs for safe keeping. While your Dino is uploaded, you can also backup the file where uploaded Dino's are saved locally. I should add that if the private server you want to transfer from is clustered, it won't work. Need's to be unclustered private server.
  4. Have you tried increasing the number of AC units, or tried using the heat method (20 x torches + couple of camp fires)?
  5. Once when I was feeling overwhelmed with Dinos, I thought it would be funny to plant signs around other player's bases that advertised "DeHammer's Dino Emporium". "You need a stone bashing dino but have bad credit? Need a Doe, but have no dough? No problem! Come on down to DeHammer's Dino Emporium where we have new & used Dinos of all sorts. Come on down and 'dicur' with us for your 'Doe'." It got a few chuckles.
  6. If you haven't played Ark PVE on a private server, alone or with friends, you've missed the best Ark has to offer. I have several characters going on private dedicated servers now, and I also have several going on local non-dedicated private secured sessions. One of the many great things I've discovered about private servers, along with being able to tweak settings, etc, is that you can transfer items & Dinos from a private hosted (dedicated) server into a local non-dedicated game for 'archival' purposes. At any point, I can 'resurrect' any of my dinos or breeding lines that have been 'archived' and bring them forward into a new map.
  7. Join or host a private server. It's the best way to experience Ark.
  8. It's still a bit of challenge to breed Gigas on your own, but I play on a private server with somewhat boosted settings, so nothing like the challenge of breeding Gigas on the official servers. That particular mutation was a bit of a fluke as I got when I first started trying. The odds of nice color mutation on top of Melee Damage mutation (which is the only stat mutation worth getting for a Giga) is quite low. I still have do it all on my own, taming, breeding, etc. Gigas on any server are still a hell of a lot of work.
  9. My personal favorite Griffin color mutation.
  10. I'm not going to say this is 'the best' mutation, but its one Giga mutation I quite liked. Lime green full body color mutation + Melee Damage mutation.
  11. Tamed Gigas are very nerfed, and there's very little difference between a lvl 30 wild Giga and a lvl 150 wild Giga.
  12. Server roll back or offline for a time?
  13. Two words. Baby sitter. Even just to keep things in render.
  14. We've since done the same with one of our two servers, just the other day, so we could run a more conservative 'survival' game of Ark on 'The Island' map. It's kind of refreshing to go back to the basics, grinding everything out the hard way with no mods and no transferred items or dinos. Just tamed a lvl 150 ptera and its cool because that's a big deal again. I'm protecting it with my life.
  15. Early game, picking up a ptera egg, with several pteras circling above me. Then deciding to take cover in my brother's raft base floating nearby. Then deciding to let one of the pteras in the door so I could kill it easier.
