  1. Crystal Griffins and other creatures for ISO Crystal Isles! Everyone has raved about Crystal wyverns, but my favorite creature from the Isles has to be the Crystal griffins! They're gorgeous and another fun thing to tame on the map. The liquefied creatures are also amazing... as are the Embertross. It is understandable if all of them can't be included, but the community would love to see as many of these creatures as possible on the official Crystal Isles. They are part of what makes the map fantastic. Thank you, development team!
  2. Enable Flyers and Disable Mission Zones on Xbox/Ps4 Xbox and Ps4 players don't have access to the .ini files to change these settings on genesis. Not everyone has the money to rent a nitrado server and players deserve the freedom to use flyers and build on the map as they please in single player and non dedicated sessions. Please add settings in the Advanced Server Settings on Xbox and Ps4 to toggle flyers and mission zones
  3. Enable Flyers and Disable Mission Zones? (Xbox) I read that these are now options for ARK players on genesis, but I can't seem to find the checkboxes in advanced server settings (single player) for these things. Has the update not come to Xbox, or am I doing something wrong?
  4. Magmasaur + Extinction City Harvesting? Has anyone tried harvesting materials like crystal and Element in sanctuary city with the Magmasaur? To my understanding, it harvests metal and the like quite well, but I'm curious to see how effectively it could harvest city resources.
  5. How to tame Galli/Kangaroo after update? With the recent update, these creatures are now stupidly difficult to tame. You can't bola them. You can't carry them to a taming pen. Rare flower is likely to end up with them dead, with other creatures rushing to attack you as well. How on earth am I supposed to tame these guys now? Any suggestions?
  6. It doesn't have to be exact- with the server rates of the boosted server, it's possible for me to get some op stats on tames that make them seriously fun. I have a lightning wyvern, in his max level, with 60k health, 3k stamina, and I think 2k melee. He destroys deathworms in 2 breaths. I also have a tuso, not yet max level, with 100k health. He's not even level 200 yet and he's not bred. This is the stuff I'm looking to do on single player. I just need to know which EXACT SETTINGS to adjust, because attempts to emulate this are just failing endlessly
  7. Note: The data I observed was taken on the server with the high rates. On my single player, I'm still getting very "default" stat changes even when changing the settings that alter stats gained per point invested. I should offer data on what my single player harvests are providing- I'll get to that soon. When it comes down to it, I'm really just looking for how to emulate the 15x harvest and 4x stats (for player/tamed dinos) that Nitrado provides without using Nitrado. Still, thank you! I forgot to uncheck single player settings before.
  8. Server Settings HELP I need someone with a big heart who likes math/estimations, because I need a Christmas miracle over here. I've started playing on a server recently, powered by Nitrado. It's an awesome boosted server with 4x stats for players and tamed dinos, and 15x harvesting. The settings are so good, I'm trying to emulate them on my Xbox single player world, but to avail. The sliders are not my friends, and the things I change don't seem to match up with the results showcased on the boosted server. I'm trying to figure out what settings I need for the harvest sliders and stats sliders. I was hoping to be able to get an estimation using the data I collected. Well, the thing is, I'm bad at math. Really bad. I need someone to help me out here. Here's the data: First is a dodo tamed at lvl 25, which came out at 37: Health: 48.1 Stam: 140.0 Oxygen: 285.0 Food: 672.7 Weight: 57.0 Melee: 163.4 Speed: 300.00 Here are the stats after adding one point to each (weight is cut because it just adds a stupid amount of weight so we don't have to worry about it) Health: 74.0 Stam: 196.0 Oxygen: 313.5 Food: 739.9 Weight: n/a Melee: 196.1 Speed: 312.0 And now harvesting. Here's what I got from 3 "grabs" on a bush: 111 fiber - 19 amar - 11 mejo - 23 azul - 13 tinto - 9 narco - 7 stim And here's from 2 swings of a metal pick (primitive) on a small river rock: - 15 metal - 62 flint - 23 stone What kind of adjustable settings can you guys estimate from this? To anyone who can help, thank you so much.
  9. Galli, Kapro, Kangaroo, and Megalo carry since update I understand why the drag weight changes were made to these creatures- it's a little op to be able to carry multiple players with a creature like a wyvern that should only carry two at max. However, I've found that the change has made it needlessly difficult to tame transport these creatures. Gallimimus, Kapro, and the Kangaroo tend to be native to dangerous areas like mountains/swamps/highlands, where carrying them to a taming pen is almost a necessity. Luring them to a taming pen with a rare flower is likely to end with other creatures in the pen, which may pose a threat to the target tame. Not only this, but galli and kangaroo are some of the fastest creatures in the game, and are near impossible to aim at and keep up with on even tamed Dinos, let alone on foot. Another problem is posed after this. Even if one can tame them, transporting them back to base is a serious challenge without access to cryopods, something that a fair amount of early players won't have access too. All of these factors may turn players away from these creatures, as the challenge of taming them may outshine the benefits they offer. I myself really enjoy them, but have become really frustrated with how difficult it's become to get my hands on them with no additional reward. Maybe it's a bit nitpicky, but it's also unrealistic to me. If quetzal can carry a MAMMOTH, it's strange to see it unable to lift a small crocodile. My suggestion is to alter the way pickup works with these creatures. Maybe, if one of these creatures has more than one player "riding" it, pickup will automatically fail? Or maybe there could be a new setting which toggles the ability to carry a creature with multiple riders. I would greatly appreciate a change to this, as I really enjoyed taming these creatures before. I hope my statement can make a difference. EDIT: one thing worth specifying is that with the drag weight, you can also no longer bola these creatures for taming, so there's another option out.
  10. Imprint timer mess... I play on single player, with honestly op settings just so things go quick and I can have fun while I have time to play the game. The recent patch sent imprints haywire. Where I did not even have to manually imprint before my baby dinos matured, I now have to manually imprint every 15 seconds... it's ridiculous. Is there a way I can change my settings to get it back the way it was, where dinos will grow up and be automatically imprinted without me having to worry about it? Here are my current settings: Baby Mature Speed: 6.0 Baby food consumption speed: 0.01 Baby cuddle interval multiplier: 0.908 Baby cuddle Grace period multiplier: 1.0 Baby imprinting stat scale multiplier: 1.0 Baby cuddle loose imprint quality speed multiplier: 1.299 If I have to imprint with console commands, I will, but goodness gracious couldn't wildcard warn us about this before implementing it?
  11. I think I understand where OP is coming from, in a general sense. As I said before, in the explorer notes (essentially the story line of ark) the only survivors left in the end are a lesbian couple with a stable and healthy relationship. It's a big curve ball compared to many other games I've seen, where the only Gays(tm) are side characters or just there for token woke points, and nothing is done in regards to their sexuality. Being a diamond in the rough, I understand why some people would want to hear directly from WC and the ARK Devs about LGBT+ subjects. While OP seems to be a little irrational, just know that it isn't made up entirely of trolling nonsense.
  12. Hey! Gay person here. I haven't personally seen any sign of wildcard or the ARK Devs oppressing lgbt+ community members. All the same, I haven't been around for the streams either. First, do you have proof of the moderators' actions? Without that, this whole post is kind of an empty claim. If the questions were deleted, what were the nature of the questions? Were they appropriate questions, or did they have little to do with the stream? Were they provoking in a way that would seem assertive and rude? There are a lot of reasons the mods could have removed your questions on stream. It may be better to think critically about the situation instead of crying wolf and posting to a forum. If you have concerns, there are ways to contact wildcard. Do you have other examples of this type of behavior as you said in your post, with proof? In what other ways has wildcard been oppressing the lgbt+ community? I'm not saying any of this to be mean, or homophobic. As someone who identifies as gay, false claims of homophobia and other instances are something that sully the image of the lgbt+ community. Before ever making the claim that someone or some company is bigoted, there needs to be honest thought and examination of that person/group's actions. They could be unintentional, or misinterpreted. And if they are, I personally believe that rallying and cancel culture are just not the answer. With the ARK Devs specifically... really, I've seen quite the opposite of opression. If you read the explorer notes... it's the only story in a large game I've ever seen where two major characters are LGBT and survive to the end with a healthy relationship. Props to that.
  13. When do you Dotame? (Singleplayer) Single Player people, what are the occasions that you've used Dotame or Forcetame? I have mixed feelings about it for myself, because I want to play the game fairly, but because I'm on single player, using console commands doesn't give me an unfair advantage over others- and! It's a game, it's for me to have fun, so I try to relax about it. With the color events, I've been using Dotame a lot, but I'm also sure to "repay" with the resources I would have used up when taming. (Throw away however many arrows and narcs I would have used, along with the taming food I would have used) For example, I saw an AMAZING event colored Griffin just the other day. Black and orange wings with a purple body... yeah, nope, it had to be mine and I wasn't going to let it kill itself by picking a fight with a trike or something, so I did dotame. Same thing happened with a quetz earlier today. Awsome bright orange quetz... on a map where I had none of my quetz taming supplies and 0 desire to see it fly itself into the Wyvern trench or something. I did dotame, but even though she's a ridiculous level (225 or something) I might not use her. Might breed her, but it still feels unfair to use those high level babies Has anyone else made these kinds of "exceptions" before? What was it for?
  14. I'm having a similar issue. I did a wipe and then flew around the island looking for event colors... I found one orange moschops in half an hour of looking. Didn't see a single skele dino. I found the OCCASIONAL spooky pile but not much else... All this was on single player
  15. I'm getting an update for Extinction along with the base game, so I think there could be some stuff on extinction as well? I'll have to see once the update finishes
