  1. PC Official PvE Day 11 -- Island I made the mistake of trying to build the 2nd floor of my building with metal first. After much wasted metal and cp I have it almost complete. I bread some dinos and saved the eggs for my next mass hatching. I also did another beaver dam run and a few metal runs. Nothing much just another day of grinding. Current goals (in order of priority) Finish the 2nd floor crafting building Build 1 of each industrial crafting station (forge, chem bench, cooker, grill) 4-5 vaults Build a 2rd building to store dinos and a water pen. This will complete my base. A haching/raising building with a crafting/storage 2nd floor and a dino "garage" all surrounded by gates Add 3-4 more fridges
  2. PC Official PvE Day 10 -- Island I've been so distracted by breading with the current x2 rates I haven't been very productive. Most of my dinos aren't good enough to start a breading line with but I've been breading them anyone. I uncryptoed some dinos from day 9, bread my raptors, tek paras, colored paras, agrys, and pteras. Hatched them all and started raising them. Once I they didn't need constant attention I did a metal run and finished enclosing my breading area. I briefly started builing my crafting building on top of my breading area. I soon got tired as I only got home/logged on around 10 pm so I crypoed the dinos I didn't think would make the night and went to bed. I decided I will only bread my raptors (until I'm getting enough kibble) tek paras (I haven't had to make any electronics yet thanks to my tek farm) and my colored paras (until I get the color combinations I want) I won't hatch anymore until I have my crafting area complete but just pill some eggs to take advantage of the 2x breading intervals. Current goals (in order of priority) Finish my breading/raising building - Done Build a crafting building - I'm going to build this above my breading area.

  3. PC Official PvE Day 9 -- Island This update is kinda late. Its nearly the end of day 10 now but I'm just logging on for the first time today. I had a busy day irl, spending the day with family out of town. So yesterday I did a metal run, nearly finished my breading area. Its missing a few ceiling but its usable now. I also added 3 fridges. I'll need more but its a good start. I couldn't resist the urge to bread so... I hatched 4 tek paras for my tek farm, 2 raptors for kibble (both were male so I killed them), an argent, a ptera, and uncrypoed a baby thylo (my ally was going to kill but he offered it to me first). I got 1 imprint on all the carnivores before cyrpoing them. I stocked my troughs and the paras should have survived (I'll check as soon as I'm done typing this) I thought about taming some snails but decided to hit some beaver dams instead. I ended up with 1300 cp in ~10 min. Maybe I won't need snails. I also went looking for some event dinos. Found a few cool looking paras I couldn't pass up. Hoping to bread them and get a full blue and full red one. Current goals (in order of priority) Tame a few snails - Doesn't seem necessary. I get cp faster than metal from beaver dams Finish my breading/raising building - Nearly finished Build a crafting building - I'm going to build this above my breading area.

  4. PC Official PvE Day 8 -- Island I didn't play much and ended up getting pretty drunk last night but at least I have the rest of the week off work to. I overcame my frustration and got the foundations placed correctly for my breading area. Its 6x6x4 with raised foundations and AC units underneath. Replaced the thatch foundations with metal, did a metal run and build about half the walls plus the gate. I managed to get my last imprint on my snow owl although I have no idea how. I was pretty wasted.

  5. This perfectly describe ark. Everytime you try to get ahead you end up 6 steps behind
  6. PvE Official Day 7 Not a very productive day today. Uncryptoed my snow owl. I gave a new player my low level female ptera. Shortly after that a higher level female ptera got stuck inside my base. Naturally I tamed it and named her Karma. Did two metal and crystal runs. Played around with my frog in the swamp and didn't get near as much cp as I hoped. I guess I'll need to take @Cymas advice and tame a few snails. Crafted a bunch of thatch foundations and wooden pillers. I played around with ideas for a new breading area. Crafting 10 AC units and tried to raise the thatch foundations enough to fit the AC units under. I quickly grew very frustrated with the snap points. I may give up and build foundations, place AC units, and build ceilings half a walk about using railing. I worry about dinos falling though the ceilings so I'd really like to avoid that. About that time my owl was ready for an imprint. Cooked Prime Meat, easy enough. I took an argy toward the swamp, killed a few titanoboas till I got one, headed back but right before I got to base an Ikthy stole it. *sigh* one of those days. Finally got the imprint, 67% now and 67% mature not sure if I'll be able to get the last imprint. Recrypoed and I'm heading to bed. Hopefully tomorrow will be more productive and less frustrating. Current goals (in order of priority) Tame a few snails Design a breading/hatching area. I'm going for 6x6x4 or 7x7x4 with a big ramp and larger 2nd floor I can move dinos to as they grow. The 2nd floor will have a behemoth gate and an exit ramp Rebuild my base larger and with metal. My current base isn't placed very well and I can't enlarge it due to uneven ground and poor planning Changing this goal slightly. Once I finish the breading area my current base will feel less crowded. The building will be next to each other so I can take my time and design a designated crafting/storage area. I'd like a hatch frame so I can drop dinos like an anky right next to a forge/vault and an exit ramp. It doesn't need to be much larger than my current building since it will be only for crafting. 2-3 fridges 4-5 vaults Build 1 of each industrial crafting station (forge, chem bench, cooker, grill) Build a 3rd building to store dinos and a water pen. This will complete my base. A haching/raising building, a crafting/storage building, and a dino "garage" all surrounded by gates Doed Removed for now to keep me focused on getting my base set up Baryonyx for caves (maybe male and female) Removed for now to keep me focused on getting my base set up
  7. When your rex gets a mutation but its in food instead of damage
  8. @Cymas I thought I read about certain dinos laying eggs less often, like titanoboas and scorpions? I could go for all the highest grade kibble but I kind of prefer the progression of building up one tier at a time. I'm located on a small peninsula near the southern edge of the island (I'll get cords after work) but there is a decent amount of space with shallow water so I plan to build part of my base with pillars/ceilings. I'll have the breading/hatching area with normal foundations becuase I've heard if glitches with babies falling though ceilings but my crafting area will be over the water. I'll build with thatch/wood first then replace it all. AC units can go under the foundations if I remember correctly. I've never tamed a snail and I hate going into the swamp other than riding dinos. I do have a frog so I might just use that. They also get lots of cp.
  9. PvE Official Island Day 6 I didn't play much today but I made some good progress. Last night someone from my alliance gave me a rex they didn't want. It felt kinda cheap but I really needed something decent for meat runs. I bread it with one of his however I didn't watch the egg close enough and it didn't hatch. I decided no more breading till I have a good back with AC units. I mistaking killed someones tek para that they were taming while on a meat run so I gave them one of my partially imprinted ones. Turning out better than what they were taming anyway. I got 3 imprints in my snow owl and cryptoed it for the night. I work tomorrow so I'll open it when I get home and get another imprint before bed. It should be raised Tuesday evening. I tried to tame an argy. I found a level 150 but it was instantly killed by a rex. I got frustrated and tamed a level 55 then returned to find a higher level. I currently have a level 115 knocked out. I'd still like to find a higher level one but at least I can do short metal runs now and start to rebuild my base. I've been avoiding placing electrical/industrial stuff because I didn't plan my base very well. I want to destroy and rebuild it once I craft up a bunch of metal building supplies. I'd like to upgrade from stone anyway. I hatched my 3 tek para eggs (I know I said no more breeding but para eggs are much easier than rex) They don't take much effort to care for. I got 2 male and 1 female. I'll kill the 2 male once they're grown and use the female to replace the one I gave away. After rebuilding my base I can breed all 4 females and hatch another batch. Current goals Doed Breed or tame 1-2 more female raptors for kibble - removing this goal until I have my base upgraded Male and Female Argy. Start a breeding line. - Tamed 1 male and female but nothing good enough for a breeding line Breed and raise 4x paras - Raising 3. No more breading until my base is upgraded Rebuild my base larger and with metal. My current base isn't placed very well and I can't enlarge it due to uneven ground and poor planning Build 1 of each industrial crafting station (forge, chem bench, cooker, grill) 2-3 fridges 4-5 vaults male and female Icthy becasue I think they'd be fun to breed - Removing this goal becasue its mostly for fun and I'd like a full base first Female anky to start a breeding line with - Putting this goal off until I can kibble tame. I don't want to start a breading line with crop tamed dinos Baryonyx for caves (maybe male and female) This is my first time really playing official for more than a day or 2 and I feel like I'm making good progress. Does anyone have suggestions for regular kibble dinos? I'd like some barys anyway for caves but do they lay a decent amount of eggs? Are carnos or turtles better? Cya all tomorrow for day 7
  10. I would assume he has the difficulty set the same way as official which is a max level of 150. Difficulty set to 1 and difficulty override 5.0
  11. Are you playing single player or a server? What settings do you use? Do you still consider an icthyornis worthwhile if it can't gather prime meat like on official pve?
  12. Damn you're making fast progress!
  13. PvE Official Island Day 5 Today was a day of ups and downs. I died while fighting a theroziosarus on my argy. I ran back just in time to see my argy die. While it sucks to lose an argy with 4000 weight, in a way it makes everything feel more legit. I was given the argy but now I can earn it back myself. I got 2/3 imprints on my tek paras. That doesn't really effect anything but I plan to keep them since they are female. I will have 4 female 1 male that I breed for the dust/electronics. I tamed a male raptor so now I have 2 female 1 male raptors for kibble. I attempted to breed them becasue I'd like at least 3 females but I didn't pay close enough attention to the eggs and my fire went out so they never hatched. I tamed a male and female pteranodon. I mostly wanted these to lure an argy. Found someone on my map willing to trade a snow owl egg for 2k ingots so I spent the rest of my ingots on that. It won't be easy to get more until I have something to carry my anky. I tamed a level 15 icthyornis becasue I thought it is useful for prime meat. On official map PvE it cant get prime meat, only prime fish meat, due to flyer carry being turned off. However it was useful when I found a 110 otter to tame. I traded the otter for a frog so now I have a good source of cp. Once I get another argy I will be ready to upgrade my base to metal and set up some industrial crafting stations. I hatched the snow owl and will be up most of the night. Hoping to get most of the imprints Current dinos: Anky (metal and berries) Beelzebufo (Caves and CP) 3x Dodos (Basic Kibble) Ichthyornis (Prime Fish Meat) Phiomia (poop for fertilizer) 2x Pteranodons 3x Raptors (Simple Kibble) Sarco Snow Owl Baby 5x Tek Parasaurs (Electronics and dust) Current goals after day 5: Doed Breed or tame 1-2 more female raptors for kibble Male and Female Argy. Start a breeding line. Breed and raise 4x paras Rebuild my base larger and with metal. My current base isn't placed very well and I can't enlarge it due to uneven ground and poor planning Build 1 of each industrial crafting station (forge, chem bench, cooker, grill) 2-3 fridges 4-5 vaults male and female Icthy becasue I think they'd be fun to breed Female anky to start a breeding line with Baryonyx for caves (maybe male and female) Sorry for the long post but they help me to set goals and focus on progressing. These goals are not all for one day. I'll keep checking them off and adding to the list as I move on
  14. Turns out this doesn't work on official becasue of PvE flyer pickup being turned off. I think their base damage when not picking up a dino is only 1 so it cant even kill a level 5 dodo and it cant pick it up to damage it due to official settings It was useful to tame a otter though!
  15. Personally I always kill myself before logging out and respawn at my bed when I log in. Then I don't need to worry about losing gear or anything like that
