  1. Usually when I am hatching and raising I tend to potter around the base doing farming and crafting. I normally do a meat and berry run to top up the trough(s) and gather enough resources to fill my containers so that when I put the egg out to hatch I can sit back and craft narcotics, sparkpowder, gunpowder, and then ammunition (regular and tranq). After that I look at redesigning the base, adding extra rooms and storage, upgrading the crafting area, adding more crop plots and taps to the farm and planting more veg and berries and crafting kibble if I have the ingredients. After running around hunting, taming and trying not to die it's nice to have some downtime at the base.
  2. Thanks, I think I will move all my dinos from story maps onto Valguero then for now and then wipe the story maps and start again. I love the early game grind but don't want to lose my colour event tames.
  3. Got a chibi terror bird, named it chibi chaser. Did more routine grinding.
  4. Got some more chibis and put some eggs in the fridge ready for hatching, did some metal and resource runs but nothing too time intensive because raptor clause. Also downloaded jurassic world evolution as it is free with games for gold on xbox at the moment, may be useful the next time I need a break from ark.
  5. You are welcome, but thanking me for posting something you have 'facepalm' reacted to seems a little contradictory to me.
  6. Did my first Raptor Clause loot run and now have a pet wyvern named Chibichanga. I also got 2 spinos and a raptor but haven't named them yet.
  7. When the update which increased rex damage against herbivores came out, it caused rexes to do no damage against carnivores. Not sure how it sits with omnivores but I guess that's not important.
  8. Her original dossier was actually written in Daedric writing from The Elder Scrolls series. It translates to a text that appears to be written in Latin, but in fact turns out to be the so-called "Lorem Ipsum", a common filler text used for publishing and graphics design. Copied from the wiki in the notes/trivia section.
  9. I don't have element gachas yet, need to try breeding them. I've gotten some good(ish) weapons and armour from them, along with the metal, crystal or pearls (my best production options). I try to do the grinding while the wife is at work so that our gaming time is fun, but this year has been a bit of a right off due to health issues.
  10. I only play singleplayer so any loot is good loot, and if it's garbage then it's free resources. Anything to help with the grind is welcome as the wife wants us to tame everything if she is around when I play.
  11. I got a couple of event owls on extinction when I tamed a couple of gachas, I didn't learn and don't have saddles for them. I have them near enough to my gachas on the Island for the gachas to pick up the pellets, it helps for the loot crystals.
  12. On unofficial you can run events after they have finished on official or singleplayer.
  13. Well done little miss, I don't like being unmounted underwater either. Did you also get snow owls? Gachas love snow owl pellets.
  14. That sucks. Hopefully it will be fixed soon and you get the colours you want during winter wonderland next week.
  15. Will the extra crafting slots and reduced fuel costs be introduced with Winter Wonderland? I foresee a lot of narcotics and tranq darts being produced during this event, in my game at least.
  16. I hatched a baryonyx egg from my 118 female and 30ish male. Got a nice mid range female with dark brown (coffee) body and cream underside with cream spikes, named her Tiramisu. Took tiramisu out to run the volcano cave for xp and artifact of the clever, farmed some metal while I was there to craft tranq darts for winter wonderland. On the flight back to green ob I spotted a male baryonyx with red body and spikes and white underbelly it tamed out at lvl 60 and was named Eton Mess. I swapped out my breeding male and mated tiramisu with eton and got female twins with coffee bodies with red spikes, cream stripes and white underbelly. They are currently unamed but I am veering towards Creme Brulee 1 and 2.
  17. I carry both but only use the pike for spear fishing, most of my time on land is spent in the safety of a base. If I do venture into the wilds I have a tame to fight with, usually an argent. I have an ascendant sword with good damage though.
  18. My wife is pretty much the reason why we have a cryofridge almost full of coloured argents, I can't go anywhere without hearing 'that's pretty, I want it'.
  19. The game can be hell during the early stages. I recommend you do a note run and get some levels to bump up your stats and unlock engrams for better equipment. Set up a small stone base near some metal spawns and start smelting ingots, use wood for the fuel and craft as much sparkpowder as you can. Learn a gun engram and start crafting bullets, a sword is always a handy backup weapon to have as well. Craft narcotics as you go and learn to make a longneck and tranq darts as soon as you can, life will then start to get easier.
  20. Well this comments section seems to be lacking all the passion, excitement, hatred and anger of the forum posts over the last few days. On the plus side, Thank you for extending the turkey trials. This is a very important question and I for one hope that the answer is December 10th. I also hope it lasts into the new year, and that I can keep the items (trees,gifts,lights etc.).
  21. Also today as I played I was 'talked' or rather 'pouted' into cheating. As I was flying around the Island collecting tames and items I came across a 250 super turkey, at first I approached it cautiously just to look at it as I haven't seen one before. It was at this moment the wife entered the room and declared she wanted it, I told her they are untameable and she sat down looking all sad face at her phone. Just as I was about to leave she shoved her phone in my face saying 'look there is a forcetame admin command' after a little more pouting and some 'i'm poorly's' I agreed to tame it on the condition it stays in her petting zoo and has no interaction with the gameplay, she now has 2 turkeys a skeletal trike and a skeletal quetz for her little zoo all of which we found and forcetamed today.
  22. Haven't gotten on much since fear evolved, just been pottering around mostly. Have managed to organise most of my resources on the Island, still got a vault of saddles and some shoulder pets full of blueprints left at the beach base with half a dozen rexes. After lots of mucking around with mixed level tek rexes I now have a breeding pair at level 243 with 10k health and 1.3k melee, got the best stats i had into them without any mutations. The rejects from this endeavour will form the 'test' group for my first ever boss fight (easy broodmother), if and when I finally find a rex saddle blueprint. For all the red drops I have checked I have only found 1 journeyman rex saddle, not a single BP of any quality. I have decided to breed my (only) 2 baryonyx as I foresee a future spent in the swamp cave. The male is level 100ish and the female is 20ish, hoping to get a low (same) level breeding pair for future breeding projects. The offspring that don't make the cut will be used for my caving endeavours (on land), the first born is grown and is sat outside my unprotected storage tower set to passive with a horde of 40ish neutral zomdodos following it. As breeding takes for ages to get eggs I set some of my coloured Therizinos to mating, pastel green male with a purple stripe breeding with a bright green female and a purple female. Can't wait for my purple and green babies. Breeding is fun and I have cleared out room in the breeding courtyard to set up some more couples but I don't know what I want to breed next, shame the babies grow up as they are so cute and dinky.
  23. Surely those tribes and alliances would just reform after a wipe and re-establish themselves. Group chats, like discord, would help them organise getting the players back into the tribes on day 1 and then use strength of numbers to rebuild. If a wipe is done before meshing and duping is fixed people will just start doing it again as soon as they can and the wipe will have been pointless.
