  1. Cave damage on Aberration and Valguero Hi guys, I have been searching the forums on this topic and have found nothing. I am on a cluster where cave damage is 6x, and i have questions on two of the maps. First, the underwater ocean on Valguero. Does the whole thing count as a cave? There are tunnels leading to the ocean where cave damage should be obvious, but after you leave those tunnels and enter the huge ocean part, is cave damage still turned on? It is such a large area that i honestly can't see there being cave damage, but i don't want to spend all my resources on an underwater tek base if it is still going to be an easy target. Second, Aberration. Technically the whole place is a cave. I am specifically interested in the blue and red zones. These areas are just as large as the underwater ocean in valguero, and are completely covered overhead. Is cave damage an issue? I would just try it but as you know if you have ever played aberration, you have to really prepare to get into those zones and i just want to make sure it is worth my time. If you can answer either of these id be grateful but i really do want both answers for future reference.
  2. Also a follow up question, if they are attacking a target and something else walks closer do they switch targets? Or just attack the first target still?
  3. Turret time to aim, and will it shoot legs Hey guys, two simple questions. First. If an auto turret or heavy turret are facing the wrong direction when an enemy approaches, does it take a second for the turret to turn around, or does it insta aim? Second, let's say you had a wall or a rock not touching the floor, if somebody walks up but the turret can only see their legs will it shoot? Most videos I see are people getting shot in the chest. If anybody knows I will be grateful, as it will change a base layout I want to try! Thanks!!
  4. There would be ways to solve them though. But what I didnt mention, and what brings us back to the name of the post, "Complete the Ark". I'm glad you think it sounds fun! Honestly it might be better with no tribes. And that's the point though, the first few to make it to Tek tier can run the place which is why they get the best rewards, making it a ranked system. Not everybody should get the top tier rewards or it ismt a ranked system. You should have to fight for it. Plus, in three months or however long a season is, the megas get wiped too. They might not all play every season. The point is at the start of each season everybody is an equal.
  5. "Complete the Ark." I have only been playing Ark for 2 months, but I have an idea to help with the imbalance of Official servers "bobs" vs. mega tribes. I would like to suggest a prestige system. Obviously In Ark those who are new like me wish there could be some sort of server wipe to give us the feel of a competitive chance with the big wigs. Looking from the mega tribes point of view, if Ark wiped me, id be frustrated! Ark can't do this. To many dedicated players would quit. BUT, from a new player perspective, I will never play official dedicated servers because I do not have a chance. I joined the game too late, and other people have c4 to spare so they are server wiping just for fun. Its not going to happen. A ranked system wouldn't need to be a huge change. Heck, it wouldn't even need to delete the current servers. I am suggesting Ark transitions the currently MANY empty servers to a ranked system. Here is how it would work. 1. Official servers still exist. They are separate from ranked, and mega tribes can keep playing and that whole environment can exist the same as it is today. Current players won't lose a thing. 2. After ranked servers were dedicated as "ranked", these server will have a "Rank" assigned. All players start on "Fiber" servers. These servers only allow a player to progress as far as the stone age probably level 19. In order to move to a "Metal age" or "Wood Tier" server, you must finish the stone age, and craft an object that allows you to "prestige". This object could be a small statue, a smoke signal, etc. etc. etc that allow them to leave the server. (THERE WOULD BE NO SERVER HOPPING.) 3. When you leave the server from completing the objective, you start over. Level one. No engrams, none of your old dinos, just the potential to get further than you did last time, with a promise of rewards (i will explain later) in the future if you continue. Tiers could look like this. "Fiber (level cap 19), Wood (Level cap 39), Stone (Level cap 59), Metal (level cap 79), Fabricated (Level Cap 89), Tek (Level cap 100). Maybe 6 tiers is too many, but I would let the devs figure out their numbers to avoid overpopulation and under population etc. 4. At the end of the ranked "season" rewards would be given. These would be permanent access to SKINS for yourself and your dinos. These could not be traded or given to others. You cannot drop them, you can only destroy them. They can only be placed on YOUR tames. Depending on how far you got during the season will change which skins you get. If you only stay in fiber, maybe you can make your dodos all pink. If you end in tek tier, perhaps you get a wyvern skin that will knock the girls socks off if you know what i mean ;D SKINS ARE ALREADY IN THE GAME!! TAKE ADVANTAGE OF WHAT YOU HAVE!!! 5. These skins would be accessible from a bench you can make at level 1 for 5 wood. Each skin only costs 5 fiber to make. This enables you to bring these skins into single player, dedicated, non dedicated etc. They are account bound. You could also add skin micro transactions like fortnite. 6. Rates would need to be slightly boosted from current official servers, because you would have to start over a few multiple times. The games rates are currently set up to make you take a LONG time because that is the current endgame. If you have to start over repeatedly, and every "season" in this mode, rates would absolutely need to be somewhat boosted to give players a true chance. Thats my idea! I'm probably missing things here and there, but what do you guys think? It brings the "Fortnite", "start over fresh upon prestige" feeling. It encourages max level tribes and players to continue to higher servers so as to get greater rewards It discourages people from camping servers because they have to start over when they prestige, so there is no reason to delay your progression It gives people a chance to join, or rejoin at any time without getting severely punished. We get to look dope flying around with our skins in all future game sessions The devs only have to separate the servers, create the item bench, and the prestige items. It wouldn't be THAT much work, and it should greatly increase income Let me know what you guys think!

    Worth buying?

    I LOVE Scorched Earth because it brings back the best parts of Ark. Remember when you started playing with your new guy and had a little bit of a challenge before you get all set up? (obviously PVP is always more of a challenge so i'm just talking about dying to the map itself). Take that game and change up material collection, add building mats, surround the "easy" parts of the map with faster dinos that are harder to kill and escape from, get rid of easy to kill things like dodo's and replace them with more sabertooths, Daedons, raptors, and terror birds, make the very weather itself your enemy, and now you have a whole different survival experience. SE helps keep the survival feeling even through to late game. Most of the other maps feel like you vs. Dinos, Scorched earth feels like you vs. Heat/water/food(decays twice as fast on this map)/stamina(more fast animals)/lightning storms/sandstorms/REAL HEAT/ and then freezing at night! If you like tough games, this is your perfect expansion. if you hate the leveling building stage and only like feeling on top of the world, go play Ragnarok. You will get there faster.
  7. Cant log into character Okay so I was just playing ark on an official dedicated server. I got kicked out for the update today. After performing the update and logging back in, i joined the same server as before but was told to make a new character.. confused, I did thinking it must have been the wrong server. Curious though, I just hran back to my base location, and there it is! I entered the door code, walked inside, and there is my main guys body asleep on the floor!!! I cant figure out how but I have two people on the same server, and cant log in to my main account.. please help. The servers name was NA-PVP XboxOfficial-Ragnarok94
