  1. Started happening about 10 minutes ago, 2 gaming rigs and a laptop, all affected by it. Hoping I was somewhere safe when I got the error message and the game crashed.
  2. Just hit this myself, crashed in northern aberrant area on Gen 2 TWICE in a row. Third time however nothing happened and I was able to recover my skiff. This isn't a client side issue with the game itself. Verified, uninstalled mods, reinstalled mods, etc etc etc.
  3. So, for those of us modding or collectively running unofficial servers we continue to struggle with tame cap on our clusters. It would be very accepted among the modding community if we had a way to manipulate breeding nodes and code so that we could come up with a viable way to allow breeding/mutating without having to have out hundreds of dinos which cause significant server lag. Many of us would like to be able to create a new S+ variant structure that would allow you to load in the breeding teams, enable a mutation pulse within it, and breed them without ever having to render or have a
  4. That is probably applicable to a unofficial cluster I would imagine but this affects official as well. However I will relay this to our cluster admin.
  5. Tested on Official and on Unofficial. On Unofficial I had a 117 with all the bosses except for Alpha Rockwell and Master Controller. Was dropped to level 1 on login and only had 96 levels to put back. GG. On Official, I had all the bosses done, fully level capped, logged in and was level 1 with only 130 levels possible. PISSED... Oh and to boot, you cannot level passed what the game granted back to you in level, you are CAPPED and unable to get back to what you lost. again.. GG Wildcard.
  6. Yep we tested it again tonight, sat down, would not allow us to fish. Stiiiiilll broken.
  7. Ouch, sorry to hear that. Personally, I didn't like Genesis 1 that much, having separated biomes kind of threw me off, but I will say that arctic was the way to go. Swamp may sound and appear to be easy (according to the spawn map) but it isn't. Those insect swarms are annoying at best. I got a nice spot near a gully that was packed with procos and a few other things that helped immensely. Definitely take the time to tame a few procos, we used them almsot exclusively for traveling around the maps and to the mission terminals and glitches.
  8. Hehehe, see I might just do that because I want one in my face, but then again who knows. Typically the way i've always approached the maps is to go with the hardest areas first, but we're playing on a cluster instead of on official so we'll see. Normally on official going with the hardest places results in being able to get a build up before the land is overcrowded. On private tho, it's a pretty laid back group so I'll play it by ear.
  9. That's a valid point and yeah, we said the same thing, even if they had said it's going to be at 10am on June 2nd, I don't think anyone in our group would believe it lol. To be truthful, I wanted a glimpse at the biomes mostly just to use as a spring board for where I'm heading the minute this thing lands in our laps, not that the video is gonna really be all that intuitive. LOL. I'm one of those people who like to have a game plan, I have a check list ready, know exactly what I'm looking for, what my first actions are when the feet hit the ground, etc. Clearly, I'm a bit OCD in those regar
  10. LOL I believe many of us posted this back at the end of December when the launch was "supposed" to happen. It's still their money maker, it's going to remain their money maker for years to come, Ark 2 isn't even hypothetically going to be ready for release till 2023 and there's no solid guarantee it's going to be successful, it could fall flat on it's face like Atlas did at first (or in some people's opinions, considered to still be.) There might be some real issues with development, time management and bad marketing decisions, but they aren't stupid, they are gonna protect their golden goo
  11. Can't deny this myself. Delay after delay after delay, remaining absolutely 100% consistent with DLCs of Ark Past. I mean look at this.. it's literally June 1st, the Expansion is tomorrow, no hype here, I would have at least expected a gameplay trailer (although some have said that it'll show up an hour before launch), yet I haven't seen a single solitary word on what time to expect this launch to kick off. I know there's a large group of us that play from our local area and we were all trying to make plans for the launch time, but those plans got dashed by yet another failure on the studio
  12. I always love it when I see someone say "taking time off work to play a video game is stupid." To begin with, taking time off for the launch of a new game has been a thing for over 30 years, not because it's an excuse not to be donating blood, sweat and tears to an ungrateful employer who usually is trying to find a way to screw over the hard working employees that make him or her so much money, but because gamers generally get that excited about a new game and just want to get right into it. I mean there's a dozen reason why it happens, sometimes people just need an excuse to throw a game
  13. I think PISSED is an understatement for most of us, not because it's delayed, but because like many have said, they took time off work, pushed stuff aside to be on and ready for a launch next week, and now it's pushed back even further when everyone could have been notified much sooner to adjust those plans. Thankfully, in our case, my wife didn't pull the trigger on scheduling our pet for some play time for 2 days at a local pet suites today. My gut told me not to do it and when I told her that we held off. Some people however weren't so lucky. Personally, I just want the map released,
  14. FINALLY, a little hype! What would possess you guys from waiting until the last home stretch to hype this map release!!? Granted, we knew about the egg incubator, but at least we got something! Thank you!
  15. I wish they would have testing, they need to, but I doubt highly if they will bother. Every single map release, the players do all the testing and find all the bugs, report the bugs, and hope and pray fixes come. There are still issues on the beginning maps so I just can't say with any confidence that it's gonna matter either way.
  16. ... May is right around the corner and we don't even have a sneak peek? *goes back to FFXIV* *drops mic*
  17. Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you are basically on your own. They do not reimburse for lost dinos at all these days and even more so, all they'll do for a lost character is (assuming you have screenshots of all your engrams, all your unlocks, all your gear, and a screenshot of your implant with your boss unlocks), which most people don't have or would think they would need in a game this far along. Welcome to getting mega-Arked, I've lost 3 different toons to that BS and yeah, it was ridiculous. That's why I play on private now and haven't looked back at Official Ark servers. Th
  18. You are absolutely, 100% justified in posting this. Do I think the Devs don't care? Nah, I think they do. What I think however is there is a failure in communication, prioritization and corporate decision making. I mean let's look at the latest about Extinction, it took them how long before they finally got the greenlight to fix the problem? I know personally I put in dozens of tickets to no avail. Something is definitely broken, but if you were to sit down with the active Devs on the team, I bet they would all say they care, I mean how can you not? I've spent hundreds of hours creating sof
  19. 4 ill intentioned base raids later, it's nice to see the corrupted dino damage for structures is no longer a thing, thank you! I just wish it had been 6 months ago when we left our favorite map due to that nonsense.
  20. I'm just gonna say this like it is. Wildcard does care about their game, maybe not for all the reasons an end user would want them to, and that's not to say that some of the Devs don't still care and have the passion to better the game. Facts: Ark is still their money maker, they can't afford not to care about the game as that would mean losing their jobs, feeding and supporting their families and destroying any aspiration to progress in their chosen career. Take a moment to step into the shoes of the team, think about their growth from a 15 man studio into what they are, all t
  21. Yeah, I mean there should be some etiquette if you are making videos and how to(s) in youtube. I run a private server but when/if I record a tutorial, I do so with the mindset that we're going to do this exactly like we would on official. It helps if they play both so they can retain some perspective on the differences. However, lately I haven't found any reason to even record another Ark tutorial, there's so much media out there that covers it, I can't justify recording anything else lol.
  22. Suffice to say, some of us are a little annoyed and frustrated and express this, others choose to continue to look at it positively and support the team. I still support the team, I may not be happy with some things, but you have to respect that this game, even with all it's known and probably unknown issues, is still a great game. I just wish they'd communicate with us in a meaningful way regarding things. Seeing progress being made, reading dev blogs, and being kept in the loop would be an ideal way to help the community cope with delays and the issues presented. That's really all I'm sayi
  23. I agree, many of us have been playing this game for YEARS and it's never gotten any better with content releases, never gotten any better in many aspects of the game and it's development. As a paid up customer and enthusiast to the game in general, when things don't improve or don't measure up I take to the forums to voice my opinion and express my frustration. It's therapeutically helpful to me personally, so I really don't care who hates or loves it, although the likes on the posts are nice to see. Point is, fan boys are fan boys, and opinions are opinions. We're free to express ourselves
