  1. I’m thinking these guys will be found in the coldest areas of the map, maybe they can even provide a thermal bonus like otters do
  2. Creature: Pontolis magnus Time: Miocene to Pliocene Diet: Piscivore Temperament: Female are docile and curious, males are territorial and aggressive when the survivor gets too close Why I picked this creature? Ark doesn’t have anything like it mainly. We haven’t gotten a new water creature in some time, and in terms of mammals I feel we are lacking in that department in our oceans. Wild Pontolis can be found in colder regions, like the snow area on the Island. It hunts for fish and shellfish which make up the bulk of its diet. Like modern day walrus, they have a thick blubber layer to help keep them warm and protect them from other creatures. Pontolis are social, usually being found in groups of 3-5 individuals with one male as the leader of the group. He protects his territory and females, often becoming aggressive if other creatures get too close. The females, however, tend to be more docile and sometimes even curious. Males are larger with thicker necks and longer tusks. Domesticated/Utility Pontolis makes an excellent diving companion for multiple reasons. First, it’s saddle acts as a scuba tank, providing continuous oxygen to the survivor while mounted. This tank holds more air than a standard diving tank, however, once it runs out the survivor must return to the surface for the tank to recharge. The tank’s maximum oxygen increases as the saddle rank increases, with ascendant saddles holding the most oxygen. Pontolis also benefit from a pack bonus provided there is one male in the pack. Multiple males cannot be mixed in a pack for this bonus to activate, but the number of females doesn’t matter. Your Pontolis will put those sharp tusks to work. When mounted the survivor can charge up a bite attack, once released Pontolis will give a nasty bite dealing high damage to whatever unfortunate creature comes into contact with those tusks. This attack can also be used on carcasses for large amounts of resources. The longer the bite is charged, the more stamina it drains. Taming Taming Pontolis depends on the gender and requires 2 things, a hefty amount of tasty fish and a toy! Males are aggressive and will not hesitate to attack the survivor. Taming them requires you to first remove him from his females, and then apply enough damage to render him passive. Once passive, he will allow you to feed and play with him. At random intervals, he will require you to either play, pet, or feed him. This gradually fills a trust meter, and once filled you now have a new friend! For females, you must do the same in singling one out from the group, however you do not need to fight her. They are naturally curious, and are more eager to get to know you. Just make sure she is far enough away from her fellow females, and the territorial male! After taming, you can continue to play with your Pontolis whenever you’d like, and doing so has a benefit! You can continue to grow trust with your Pontolis through play and treats, and at maximum trust you gain a permanent friendship buff when riding, basically like an imprint! This buff only applies to the Pontolis you are riding, and is not passed on to any other Pontolis in the group. Color Areas Pontolis males have 4 color areas. -The body -The underside -The neck -Spots Females have 3 color areas -The body -The underside -Spots Art done by me Links https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pontolis https://prehistoric-fauna.com/Pontolis-magnus
  3. I've been struggling to tame one of these guys and I'm looking for some help. So I know how its done, you feed it corpses, it trusts you, then you ride it and slaughter everything. I'm having issues at the trust part right now. I built a trap with a bear trap in the center and metal gates around it like a giga, seems like all the videos on youtube right now suggest doing this too. I get it in the trap, close it off behind it, now its trapped and ready to feed. I've been killing things and dragging it over, it sniffs them, then doesnt eat them? Then it'll repeatedly do the sniffing animation but not eat them. Is this a bug? I had this issue with another one and what fixed it was tightening the trap so it couldn't move at all, now I have another one and it's having the same issue but I tightened the inside of the trap and it still won't eat. Do I need to let it sit for a bit and get hungry? Or is there something wrong with my trap or a possible bug making it sniff but not eat? These are still brand new so there isnt much info out there yet.
  4. Since extra life started our server has seen 3 rollbacks, not bad considering how bad some other servers have it. I would consider extending the extra life hours so that those who have been unable to play due to server stability can take part.
  5. PVE Valguero 740 has gone down twice as far as I know, once last night and it rolled back to the time before i cryod my baby magmasaur, so it ended up starving while I slept, and just now went down again. It's almost 1AM here and I have to stay up to make sure last night doesnt repeat itself and all my babies die. I really hope we get some time extended on the rates because theres no point to it when servers are down and people can't play.
  6. Hi, I made a post that was closed the other day about my artwork being credited wrong. Im the artist that did the Allosaurus drawing. It was originally credited to norat5224 who uploaded it to steam without my permission. You guys changed it here so that its credited correctly, but its still not fixed on steam. Can someone please fix that?
  7. I just got home from work and my server is doing this. Says 0/70 players and normally a few people are on at this time. Was able to connect for a few minutes before being kicked. The server no longer has the BattlEye logo next to it and it no longer lets me connect. I'm on NA Official TheCenter 84
  8. I'm playing PVE. I have not noticed any issues so far on the maps I've transferred to except for Rag maps. I normally reside on The Center, but I frequently travel to specific Rag servers (and have been doing so since before the event). Since the event started I've seen a dramatic increase in servers going offline, but it has only been Rag. Happened on different server numbers for 15 minutes to an hour at a time on average. 4 times within 2 days but it happened every time I made a trip to Rag. I have NEVER seen this happen in the months I've been playing before the Easter event, and now all of a sudden its a problem. I have not tried other maps, I will probably try going to Valg, but something isn't right at least on Rag maps. It would really suck if this was a constant problem the entire event.
  9. There's only been a few that seemingly don't go offline. I've been on PVE Rag 81 and PVE Rag 408. Rag 71 is still in the list of online servers every time the other ones go offline and get rolled back but it is a very small chunk that stays online. Going to try going to 71 today and see how that goes. I'm trying to get Easter wyvs and griffins but I'm afraid that I'll somehow lose my character if the server goes offline and glitches out. It would suck if Rag servers are like this the entire event.
  10. I've noticed this happening on Rag servers since the Easter event started. I transfer to Rag frequently and so far it has happened to me 4 times in the past 2 days, not all on the same server. Downtime is anywhere between 15 minutes to an hour usually and then when it finally comes online it was rolled back. I've never even seen this problem in the months I've been playing until now. Easter event starts and its happening every day all of a sudden.
  11. PVE Rag Servers Going Offline Since Easter Event Started I normally reside on PVE The Center 84, but I frequently travel to PVE Rag 81. I've never had issues until the start of the Easter event. I've noticed that the server every day so far has gone offline and disappeared off the server list for between 15-30 minutes, and when it comes back it has been rolled back. I tried going to another PVE Rag server, this time 408, and the same thing happened there. I've only experienced this on Rag so far since the Easter event started. Never seen this issue before until now. First time it happened I was like w/e then it happened a second, a third, and now a 4th time all on Rag and it has only been 2 days since the Easter event began. Anyone else seeing this happen?
