  1. We all know Arks got all the bugs in the universe. So when we continue to play it after discovering them we end up knowing what were getting into. Now about 4 or 5 times now my Singleplayer Data keeps getting corrupted and I've tried making save backups for each time and for some odd reason when Ark is in the loading process a Fatal Error shows up 100% of the time. I have these back up saves on a completely different device and for some odd reason when replacing the... I guess is considered a "Corrupted" file. I then add the file data map before this fatal error occured. But that somehow gets the same fatal error too. I even took a look at the files and compared the files side by side to see if i could change anything to match the back up. It just simply wasnt possible to fix it. Trust me in Singleplayer they pretty much expect you to fix the game yourself. The 5 or 4th time this happened however, I believe Ark corrupted my windows and required me to reinstall it. When i booted up my computer for the first time that day it was fine. Then i booted up Ark. Then it was taking longer than usual. So i restarted my computer and then the corruption took place. I pin Ark to this cause on top of it being the only program that has bugs in it. I had not downloaded any other programs other than Dolphin Emulator. Oculus App. And Beacon. Which are all safe programs to use. It could be steam or a windows recent update that caused it, however there were no updates availiable to my knowledge at the time. So even though Ark basically almost destroyed my computer and it erased itself AGAIN. I still wanna play it cause i think have a thing for animals in general i guess. Anyway so because i still have this STUPID urge to keep playing. Does anyone have any ideas on how to help me have a solid singleplayer file and not have it get erased? I understand this question is equal to a Long shot with a Fabricated Pistol in the complete dark but theres a sort of belief in me that really thinks that I can have a solid ark file without it getting erased. Note i do not have the income to open a server.
  2. Seems like they give you something to do. On PvE at least. But thats also assuming no one built near any notes.
  3. Oh dear god dude yeah the LOADING is so awful. Like surely these devs would understand that there are mods that are damn near required. Like the 7 additional dinos. Krakens Better Dinos. No untameables. S+. Dino Storage V2 Like i truly believe all of those are MUST HAVE mods. The overall game is so strongly built on workarounds, laziness, and pvp. These mods absolutely don't care about which mode of the game these were catered for they focused on making the game alot more fun. I think that sucks that wildcard stumped their own game so hard because they were too focused on making it a competition among people rather than making fun but while also challenging as a game against the environment. It held back the games potential so hard because of that. But hey these modders quite actually have unleashed the games true potential. Even Wildcard realize the modders not only do a better job with their projects than the entire wildcard team. But they straight up Implement maps and some of the s+ structures to the official servers because of how much of an incredible job these modders do. But BY GOD the loading truly makes it so hard ESPECIALLY when you consistently transfer between maps. And in singleplayer theres spawn issues. Like on Crystal Isles Tropeognathus's spawns reset when you exit the map. Same thing with Noglins on Gen2. Plus the game will crash while its trying to load from transferring. At first I thought it was the mods. But when I cleaned wiped my entire harddrive of ANYTHING even closely related to ark the crashes still occured. And they can't fix it. its unfixable. At least thats what I think. In fact when it comes to bugs theres so much unknown bugs that we dont even know. A great example is the Mek. The "Bug" where the Mek Modules kept losing durability every time you uncryoed a mek. I would bet actual money that NOBODY knew it was a bug. We all thought it was intended because it loses durability when you remove it. So it makes sense to lose durability when it gets uncryoed. And that was a bug in the game for YEARS. They only recently fixed it. Idk if they have a listening problem or too many conflicting reports or what but yeah i really wish they would polish up singleplayer cause most of the mods that get used are mostly singleplayer users. But hey i've got a Switch, and Pocket Tanks on my phone so they pass the time pretty nicely when it comes to the loading. But I agree loading is really long even with like 4 mods.
  4. In all seriousness I understand that when they make the nerf after tame its intended to see the game isn't as easy. Like they don't wanna make the game easy they wanna keep it challenging. But the whole point of a survival game at least IMO is that its supposed to be insanely hard at the start cause you have nothing. Then you start getting tools and armor and you climb your way up to the top. Remember that you died to a Dilo? You can get to the point where only a Giganotosaurus (or drowning) can kill you. Survival games are meant to be easier the more you play. Thats supposed to be the reward I'd figure. Like you put the hours in and you didnt give up from dying alot and losing your stuff weather to glitches or unreachable areas. and you were persistent enough to defeat the bosses and get tek. But its so weird to NERF so much of what us humans are allowed to do when were suppose to survive. The only agreeable item i would defend not being allowed to use is Cryopods in Boss Fights. I still don't like not being able to do that But i can actually get behind the idea as to why its nerfed. I just don't like the fact that a survival game is nerfing the survivors and dinosaurs which are base needs for survival. And honestly I understand the nerfs but when they do nerf they dont even reduce its tame value (meaning they still take the same amount of time to tame). But on the bright side they dont increase the time it takes when they buff a dino (Even though dino buffs happen less often than a blue moon). Like if your gonna nerf a dino. Nerf it in the wild too. Thats all im saying.
  5. I remember my mind being blown when alot of the bugs within the game were able to be adjusted in just a the "Notepad" I was like wait... all this information (Granted im sure its not ALL in the notepad but where the "server" settings are" such as adding the difficulty override to get the levels to work properly. And going in the steam command line (yknow the place where you click properties on a steam game) to fix the flyers. But the things such as tek powers enabled on genesis and customizing loot drops with a server manager I had no idea that ALL that info takes place in the common notepad. I just thought it was something you write in. Turns out Notepad has magic in it that holds can adjust your game as you see fit. I bet theres some codes I could put in there that no one else have discovered if i wanted to experiment enough. So yeah overall I gained actual knowledge from singleplayer that I dont think playing online would've given me. Granted it was agitating finding the information but just like any puzzle when you put all the pieces together... you FEEL things.
  6. Now see I do see the appeal of the online though. Its very capable of giving you a unique experience that even with a non dedicated server with your friends can't give you. But I've had so many problems with people just being irritants. Don't get me wrong that's every online game. Its nothing new. But with Ark in particular its extra frustrating because the game is already insanely difficult. Then you've got people building in your spot when you have it pillared off (I don't like the fact that I would need to do that but at least its a solution) just to be a troll and then you've got people who adjust trades at the last second. Like this guy once wanted (this was half a decade ago. PvE) me to give him 500 Tranq arrows for a Fertilized Quetzal Egg. Now this was at the time when Quetzal Spawns were bugged on Ragnarok and nobody could find any wild ones in their usual spots due to excessive building. Then I said "Alright this is gonna be so awesome you've made a man very moist today" and I guess that offended him because he then bumped the arrows amount to 700 and wanted a Fertilized Rex Egg. When we agreed on the initial trade. Luckily I canceled the trade after he was being uncooperative cause I thought i was being funny and just a few weeks later they fixed the spawns. So i get that the social aspect adds to Ark that singleplayer can't give you. But I just have such HORRIBLE luck with people encounters that i decided yknow what? I think I wanna do singleplayer. And at first I hated it. But then i really liked the idea of taming thesae creatures that used to actually exist. then years later I discovered PC is the master race and thats when my Ark Life went from a Agitating but somewhat fun experience to an amazing all around with minor issues at most. On xbox my gen2 file would erase itself because yknow... great coders. Not an issue on PC! So awesome.
  7. Oh dude I have an atomic tons of fun. Don't have to pillar off in any areas I live in. Don't have to worry about the "PvE timer decay" when I build outposts on other maps for the sake of creature finding. I have a massive variety of new original and variants of dinosaurs (The Ark Collection adds 7 and 2 WIP dinosaurs to Ark. Them having additional variants). I can tame the untamable (The No Untameables Mod allows me to tame or get Reaper Queens. Deathworms. Jug Bugs Nameless. So more additional creatures) and they all have legit ways to tame them. Some unique some basic tradition. The S+ Transmitters have a function where they can scan for all the current dinos in the area. So for example If i want a quetzal. I go to the scanner and it'll tell me the actual coordinates of where it is! Its so AWESOME! And feels so amazing rewarding more so when I unlock it. I can cryo dinos from a distance and instantly with the Dino Storage V2 mod. I can uncryo creatures during boss fights with that mod (so long as i added the configuration) I actually learned but a fraction of coding because of what I needed to do to A: Fix the leveling glitch. B: Fix the glitch where it wouldn't allow me to bring flyers to caves. I love the fact that I can bring flyers to caves (cause it makes no sense that you can't do that. Yeah its easier but its a survival game. We need to use what we have and whats given to us in order to survive) I learned how to copy n paste other peoples codes and I have made MY perfect ark. Its completely my world that I made! All the settings and stuff are all perfectly paced for a leisurely pleasurable survival experienced. I think its dumb that the player has to fix the glitches himself but its still amazingly fantastic. I can't ever go online (unless i pay for a server and open it up) again because of how amazingly fun it is to go to a boss fight and throw gigas at the boss along with the normal rex army. Its so fun not having to worry about if someone is gonna put an inconvenient structure near my base cause I forgot to pillar a spot. Its really an amazing time and its the Ark that I always dreamed of having. Now I finally have it! I hate the fact that tethering is a thing and even when you put it up to 99 it still doesnt work as intended. Theres so many flaws with singleplayer. But holy mother of god I absolutely love this game so much incredibly more and did things and learned things that only a fraction of the player base gets to experience. Do you know how awesome it is to throw a mek out of a cryopod and strike a boss with it? So insanely fun! I can spawn a bunch of Bosses and have my army kill them all (if they die oh well. Could breed or tame more and I get element). I can "Transfer" element (Lets say i get 5000 element from GEN2. I drop all of it. Then spawn in 5000 element when i transfer into lost island) Im so sorry i wrote you an essay i just LOVE talking about singleplayer it brings me an excessive amount of Joy. Its so good. Again I hate that it crashes often. I hate that I had to fix the glitches myself. But the overall positives absolutely DESTROY the little negatives. So awesome and such an amazingly better game. I really do wish i had the money to open a server.
  8. No i can't stand the rubberbanding. Im not sure how people got used to it. Singleplayer all the way man! Love the mods. I do think it sucks time doesn't go by when offline which is pretty needed. But mostly i love the singleplayer life. My only issue is that it crashes alot for some reason. Some crashes are because of the mods but other crashing is "Built in the game" so to speak.
  9. I agree with you whole heartedly i really do. But thats kind of how the gaming industry is. I mean think about it Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate on switch for example. I put so much time into it and farmed every large monster set with the matching weapon fully upgraded and everything. Monster Hunter Rise comes out and its not like im gonna be playing Generations because i like Rise alot more. So that effort and time kinda gets abandoned. I think its more so of the memories and the things you did, accomplished, figured out, and shared with the world. And you get to hold onto the feeling beyond sequels. Now i understand the example i used is far different from ark because ark has i think i can safely say over 100K players putting in at this point more hours playing the game than the devs spent making it lmao. So that equals to millions of hours split among so many people wasted (and to be fair in pvp those hours get wasted anyway. Every tribe falls) their time IF they did decide to shut down their servers. But it costs alot of money to open 30-50 servers at a time when a new map comes out. So idk again im HOPING they keep the servers up cause again all the ark pvp players would have unmanned bases and I can get a taste of what raiding is like. But i would understand if they did shut them down.
  10. I didnt find much a problem with the Taming of Stryders. But i believe you game is practically unique to everyone lol. The upload timer i definitely believe is insanely uncessary and I have no idea what sort of intended purpose it serves. You could instantly travel to servers if you just so happen to have caught the timer being reset. And with everyone having tek in GEN2 everyone knows when the timer is gonna be up so they can prepare for everything. Its very weird to see but im totally hoping they get rid of that. As far closing servers i mean. Can they afford to keep those up? With all the new maps on the way they gotta open alot of PVE and PVP servers and I feel like thats pretty costly. Dont get me wrong I would HATE to see the servers close cause all the hardcore pvpers would be busy on Ark 2. so i can finally get a taste of what its like to raid a base. But if they can't afford to keep em up or if flow of cash are stunting Ark 2s growth because they're keeping the servers on ark 1 up as much as it would suck to have all those weeks even months of Squid Mosa Giga and Rex raising to be gone I'd like to think it would be for the greater good.
  11. Dude this is gonna be such an awesome game! I can't wait to see all the powerful wild dinosaurs only to have them insanely nerfed when tamed! Super looking forward to that I tell ya. Aw man all the new stuff and even dinosaurs we'll be able to make and tame that will only be catered to PvP and will never have a use in PvE is where I think the game will really shine. After all Survival Games are SO meant for Competition against players and not the environment don't you guys agree? Oh man I fantasize about having to use guns to defend myself from dinosaurs and have them do very little damage due to their bullet resistance buff! Isn't that gonna be so fun? Clearly they know what fun is because look at Ark 1. Building a game completely around PvP when you also have a PvE mode? Oh dude that's amazing design right there that just NEEDS to be implemented in Ark 2. Dude in Ark 2 I really hope they make it so Flyers can only go maybe 30 meters before they have to land. That's a true way to travel but that's totally my opinion. Ark 2 is gonna be so good you guys I honestly can't wait to experience all these features. I think my favorite part is gonna be when they nerf a dino STRICTLY because of PvP and not even reduce the overall time it takes to tame them after nerf. I think that's gonna get them an award I'll bet! What do you guys wanna see from Ark 2?
  12. Well its that time again Ark is making another community voted dino. I had heard the last time this happened some youtuber had his lackeys vote for a creature that HE wanted, not what the community voted for. If this is true he will absolutely do it again. Everyone was very upset about it if it was indeed his fault alone that Dinopithicus is going to be in the game. Yet no one did anything about it. It never makes sense when people have the power to change something they don't like yet they INSIST on complaining about how terrible such and such is. Since that person doesn't know any better how about we all pool together, stop and think for a week or two trying to prepare some sort of idea to prevent history from repeating itself? So says every history teacher. Its absolutely possible. If this community can get together to make a free map or to make mods that improve the games quality of life and amount of fun, surely we can figure out how to combat a youtubers influence or power? Contact wild card in heaps and let them know the voting was rigged. Have a mini vote where alot of us will vote on the creature that we want as a community (some how discreetly to prevent the lackeys from pooling in their votes. A discord or something) and then when that mini vote for what dino we want has the most we then all agree and mass vote the real voting poll that we chose for the mini vote. These are two ideas i have atm. Anyone else game for suggestions on ideas?
  13. Mistakes happen. You learn from said mistakes so they do not continue to happen. Wildcard does not learn from said mistakes. Proof of this is still large amount of critical glitches such as game crashing when uploading a character. Story Ark Dinosaur levels stuck on 120 instead of 150 even though the slider is at max and the checkbox is on. Its really pathetic and they ignore all these glitches cause not enough people are reporting the same glitch.
  14. Oh yeah i absolutely noticed. Its a cash grab. Bad companies do that. But we all support a bad company so its our fault really
  15. It takes alot of time to submit these bugs to you incompetent developers. Its so frustrating that i have to take 10-15 minutes to report your game not working. Tf are your testers good for? Anyway, Singleplayer force allow cave flyers does not work in both Non Dedicated Sessions and Singleplayer modes. This occured on Genesis 2 but knowing you as a scumbag company the rest of the maps probably have this issue too. You wanna fix this extremely simple mechanic that would take hardly a day and money to fix or you wanna keep ignoring all the issues people submit cause your game stays growing unstable. I reported so many bugs to both on this useless forum and your useless ticket support crew. Who assured me youd be "Diligently working on it" Yet a few updates pass and none of the issues that everyone is having were at all fixed. I have every right to be snappy.
