  1. Throw them all aggressive in the swamp cave. Sp so they'll derender and freeze when you're not there. They might die, might get loads of levels or might help you next time you go..who knows
  2. Not a stretch, it was a fantasy game from the start lol. Love the entitlement of opinion here. My opinion is based on factual statements and experience (played since day 1) - yours is based off your feelings on how **you** feel the game should be. Obviously not intended by the devs.
  3. Sure it might be shared by others but its still wrong. It was never a "dino" game. Yes, there's dinos in it but you literally saw giant alien obelisks and an impossible sci fi implant in your arm.
  4. Ps you no longer need to enable wander to mate, there's a mate setting now
  5. Not what you want to hear but its been around since the start of ARK. Its worse on console because we can't really recover any saves.. I'm sorry this happened, its happened to me a few times as well. Its like getting wiped on a pvp server.. demotivating. Best of luck.
  6. Awe man allo looks like you're the only poster left Props to keeping it alive dude
  7. I dont - I was just asking if he was playing your map is all. I remembered your talkings of it over the time you've been developing it, seemed familiar.
  8. Is this Darkholis' map? I tried to tag him forever wasn't working ..
  9. Why? Have them publicly here so we can all contribute?
  10. XB CI Server Didn't get on for long, made sure my sheep that I bred survived, success then bred them again to get another spare for mutton later. Let them raise while I did other stuff then podded them and logged off
  11. XB Extinction Server Spent literally 12 hours running Desert cave in hopes of getting a giga saddle bp. Did a run every 30-45 mins, got loads of good loot including some new pick / hatchet blueprints but no good saddles. Other than that I didn't do much most of the day. Imprinted the rest of the two gigas I had in cryo, tried to go for a osd run...but twice second wave of a red osd the drop vanished while I was mid way... we can't damage the drops but both times i was looking for the last one or two tames..coincidence? Render issue? Don't know. Transferred over to crystal isles. After a long break for dinner / wife time I was back on, unloading my stuff figuring what to do. I spot off in the distance a giant ape, spyglass it, 260? Meh sure haven't tamed one yet since rework. They're awesome !!! Immediately went looking for a mate for it. Had a small taming spree, 340 tek para, 313 tek para and while landing for stam got attacked by a 348 (max tek lvl) tek raptor, why not. Showered the redwoods for like 2 hours. No good apes. On the way home found a low level female sheep, been looking for one awhile. Got home and immediately bred it let it raise while I went to sleep.
  12. XB CI Server Two days of play here, forgot to record my last session. Spent most of my last time on breeding. Trying to combine my rex stats with the low level female and also get her colours. My male rex is from a few events ago but it looks like a Christmas one, pure red. New one is lime green body with white every where else, looks kind of good. I dont usually like bright green. Killed a lot of babies, raised a few while doing element shard runs, metal runs etc. Built a taming pen for yuty / rex on a cliff platform near my base with a ramp going down, too paranoid about them being eaten while taming, haven't tested it yet. When I finally got a few combined stats I had an extra few that I imprinted, let the final raises grow. XB CI Server Yesterday Took my mate boosted imprinted Rex's for a spin near my base. Used rare flowers and decimated the local population. Popped a few extra Rex's to imprint while I'm busy doing some farming. Still slowly gathering element shards, trying to build up to a tek skiff or something neat. Also have a few more tek items id like to build but need more element. While I was letting Rex's raise, popped over to my scorched base area and wanted to tame a few event griffins. Flew over and checked out the griffin trench. It was severely overspawned, no-good levels around. Took a heavy turret, set it up ontop my base and kept luring griffins to their death. It was getting a bit annoying so I hopped over to my base grabbed an extra imprinted boss rex and a velo. Threw the velo down on turret mode while the rex following on neutral down right in the middle of the trench. Worked wonderful! Killed dozens of griffins, let the trench be cleared and went back to sit and wait for respawns. It paid off! First one spawns near trap - 290 event griffin! Get that baby into the trap. Ran out of darts half way through, quickly made some tranq arrows and got it out. Tamed out pretty nicely and threw it all in a drop then bed hopped over to my main base. Threw the last imprints on my Rex's then prepped to hop over to extinction. I need to start running the desert cave, were trying to find a giga saddle bp. XB Extinction Server Hopped over and deposited all my stuff I brought over. Just basic supplies. Was gearing up to head out when Santa spawned. I dont like chasing him on Extinction but he literally spawned outside my base, got a few presents. Deposited the loot and took out to the desert cave. Did a quick run, nothing too noteworthy but a nice flak helmet bp that I needed. Got back to base and logged here. I'll hit the cave a lot more today and also maybe some element veins or something.
  13. XB CI Server A very successful night! One of those sessions you look back on and say "Yeah! I made some progress tonight!" Started off building my two tek teleports. Immediately I started planning a spot for it (they're just so damn big) and figured i needed to move my tek gen. Made a pillar box in the middle of my yard and threw a gen in there, highest setting. This covers my whole base and I was able to go 100% wireless now! Placed my tek tele inside my base then set everything up to head to Eldrich to place the second one. Had a bunch of excess paste so I made a whack of metal premades for the new pad. Took flight. Got to eldrich and started planning where to put the teleport. My current base design wouldn't allow for it, literally sat there brainstorming for like an hour. Eureka! I'll have to move my base a tad, set a different angle and I can fit it (without sending the teleportee's down off the cliff) start placing new foundations .....lagg.. fell off the cliff. Lucky I had my wing suit, didn't die. No worries! I try to get my wyvern to follow me (it's way up on the cliff) no dice. Oh well, ill kill myself and fly down....crap! Forgot I picked up my bed to move it... REALLY don't want to fly back so I started jumping up walls, trying to find a glitchy way back up.. managed to use ladders, foundations and essentially built a 50 high ladder (in three stages) up to the cliff side. Lmao. Set my new base up, placed teleporter, went to get my tek gen to power it......Eff. Left it at base. Back home, fly back, place gen. Do a quick shard run then teleport back to base. Woohoo! Works like a charm! Spent the next few hours redesigning my base. With my wireless energy and abundant (enough) element I was able to make a few goodies, largen my base and make a neat little tek dedicated storage bit in the back. Went for a last minute fly before bed and spotted a beautiful event female rex, only level 40 but I have yet to find a good male so ill breed him with my awesome 300 tame for colours. Popped a few eggs, put them in the fridge then logged off. Besides listed events I also got a few raises in, combined my new tamed doed stats and combined all my mantis stats including a melee and hp mut!
  14. XB CI Server Logged in to a pretty populated server. My server friend was on and he popped by to give me a mating trio of his snow owls! Great set. He also came by to hang out, I gave him some of my velos and we messed around on my tek jump pad. We decided, hop to ext and farm some drops. He heads back to base, I prepare and start the transfer process.... Transfer survivor. Transfer survivor...transfed survivor !!! Nothing. Game crashes. The eff.? Log back in, hes saying the same thing- I try again, same. Every time we try to transfer it freezes our game o.o I got lucky and just logged in went about my business.. he posts in discord that his character transferred and he lost everything he had on him including chibi and podded dinos. Sad days. I puttered around base, did a few metal runs, bred some dinos and imprinted a final mantis, bred more manti (?) And got a melee mutation, saved that for later. Took my new mateboosted raised mantis over to eldrich to finally start farming some serious shards. Went well, very impressed with the new mantis. Only made it out with 4000 shards but hey, 40 element can't complain. Did I mention i hate flying to / from eldrich? Yeah, I do. On the way there almost got snabbed by floating bubbles and the way back too. They spawn so suddenly on Xbox due to our render view so I was veeeeery cautious on the way back. Those bubbles are the stuff of nightmares to me. Got back, took a break for dinner and to watch some TV then bed hopped back to eldrich to do more farming. This time farmed near my base there and took to the skies to find more shards. Ended up with over 9000 after a loong trip. Well worth it. Went back to base then grabbed my wyvern to fly back to eldrich for hopefully, the final time. Got everything back to base, did another shard run first and now I'm sitting at just over enough element to make two teleporters. Raptor eldrich, ill tele from now on! Had to log out before making them, something exciting to start tonight off with !
  15. XB CI Server Got on early in the morning, started breeding. Got a good female megatherium to complete my line to pop finally. Stats combined until I find a new one to tame lol. Popped a few snow owls and a couple wyvern eggs to get more bloods for the queen. Also threw out all my females to amass kibble eggs. Imprinted them all and did a few metal runs between. Popped over to my eldrich beds and grabbed more black pearls, shards and crystals, decided that I'm sick of not having a mantis - went back to base to prepare to head to the desert and get one. Podded up my spare wyvern, two gigas and some building supplies and took out. When I arrived I made a small mantis pen that later turned into a bigger one after many attempts to drop one in lol. First scanned the area to see what was out, I had enough horns to tame anything 200 or lower and found a 180 male. Did the wyvern wing trick to get it tamed as a tester - went well - then took out on the desert on my gigas. I knew there was atleast two wild ones out here so I came prepared. Chomped on flowers as I combed the desert. Got a few death worm kills in and met my two gigas. They now reside in my main gigas' inventory. Was out for a long time just cleaning up spawns for freshness, finally got back, podded the gigas and flew out on the wyvern. Right away I spot a 260 thyla, been searching awhile with no luck- luckily I brought some kibble, got it knocked out and tamed while I searched for manti Took a long time. I accidentally killed a 280 and 270 mid battle ;( my efforts finally pay off and I find a 280 event female. Long fight to get it tamed but threw em all in the transmitter and popped back to base. Just bred the lower male with the female a bunch until I got a good male and a few extras to imprint. Managed a few imprints before logging - now I've got a good set of decent mantis for eldrich. Teleporters here we come!
  16. XB CI Server Placed my new tek genny and got my base wired. I'm not sold on the design yet and I'd like to remodel my base soon. Needs to be more functional and also I need to rip out the old wiring, update some of the furnishings and add new drapes and such yknow. Went for a few quick metal runs while I popped out megatherium babies from my 300 event tame. Chased raptor clause a few times and got some decent loot. Crazy dura blueprints! Did a few paste runs while I was out. Decided I needed to get a better outpost in the desert, downsize my scorched earth area one to just a safe taming area and place a public tek transmitter at my desert dunes outpost for easy taming / gigas / mantis / death worms. Spent the next few hours doing metal runs and building metal pieces. Loaded up the wyvern and flew off. Landed a short pit stop at my scorched base by griffin trench and spotted a beautiful 260 event green/ grey griffin. Got it in the trap quickly but noticed it was bloody. Thank raptor Jesus for snow owls. Got it tamed while I added a tek dino gate to my griffin trap for a better experience. Downsized my scorched base and loaded everything to my wyvern and took off past the wyvern hive to my dunes turrets. Threw down a decent metal 4x5 with electricity, a shiny new heavy turret and a side area for the transmitter. Threw down a tek bridge to the dunes for easy access. Took my megatherium I imprinted earlier and went on a killing spree. Kept eating rare flowers to draw out any potential death worms. Managed to get 3 kills before accidently aggroing a giga and almost getting everyone killed. Loaded everything back up and flew home with my loot. When I got home I bred up some owl eggs to hatch later and sorted out some tames. When I get on tomorrow morning I'm going to find some more OSD or veins on extinction. Make it a day. Our group needs a giga saddle bp bad. We only have extinction and crystal isles and thus far noone has found one. Ill keep hitting desert titan cave since my base is there. Other than that need to throw some materials to the other server beforehand so I can craft some teleports soon. Just need the actual element now, minus some crystal ill get.
  17. The chibi are permanent yes. You equip whichever you like, you can level it via killing alphas only. Once fully leveled it gives 5 to your possible max level (so if 100 then 105 possible) iirc. You ideally want to level one to max first but can level whichever. Just something fun to do and gives purpose to hunt alphas again. Open the crystals they have loot
  18. XB CI Server Got on late last night just as my rl buddy got on. He hasn't played in years so I spent the first few hours chatting with him while breeding. My new public owl trap has gotten lots of traffic, I tamed a nice 270 event argy and a 270 owl in it between others using it. Got a nice breeding pair of owls from one guy who's been using it:) Excited for those. Friend and I loaded up one of my diplos with speed, for fun went for a run around most of the map. Holy smokes. If you haven't- level an imprinted diplo in all speed.. hilarious. On our way back we got jumped by a high level alpha carno right outside my base. I quickly left the diplo (and my buddy) as bait and grabbed my wyvern. After I went to eldrich to farm up some pearls and shards then took all the metal, poly and crystal ive been hoarding for a week and sent it all to extinction. I had 200 element left over there I couldn't transfer so made up a few nice tek items. Few genies, another transmitter, a tek trough and a few other goodies. I love having all engrams unlocked via levels. Sent it all back to CI and logged for the night. I'm placing my tek gen shortly and going to start farming up for a few teleporters, should take awhile.
  19. Hope all is well mate! Never notice your avatar before, which part of Canada? West coast here o/
  20. Yessir! People often forget the work required. Though you will not need super bred ones anyways. Always read stat recommendations with a grain of salt, too.
  21. You want to be 21k hp (final leveled) rest melee. Forget whether you're official or not but anything 450-500 melee 9-11k hp would be a good baseline if not official. If official just buy a 800 hatch egg. Ezmode XB CI Server It felt like I did a lot yesterday but looking back, I did not. Started off finishing the new argy / owl trap i had made prior, added my tek dino gate to it for ease of taming, threw 4 second auto close timer on and flew back to base. Hopped back to the pen quick to throw up a ceiling i missed and as I'm sitting there an argy attacks me, okay ill try the pen. What! 300 argy! The luck. Got it tamed and back home to breed with my current argies. Spent most of my night doing this while popping out a few mammoths, finally completed my line! Got a new imprinted Mammoth gatherer now (It's Ma'ammoth!) And a new battle mammoth (Amon Amammoth) Also tamed a few direwolves that were near, now have a mating pair. Just for fun. Other than that.. I didn't really do much. Was busy around the house so used my breeding time wisely to clean!
  22. XB CI Server. Was a busy weekend! Got loads of time to play and my real life buddy even came back to ARK to play on our server too! He joined my tribe but he isnt the type to actually play with me, he will go build a shack somewhere and casually play. I forgot to type out my mid weekend story so I have too much to relay, ill do point form for a chunk of the boring stuff. Friday night just prepped stuff for extinction. Been slowly imprinting gigas and wyverns for my boss/ osd projects, besides tame a few random dinos thats what I did most Friday night. Saturday evening I got to sort everything and bring most of my gigas and building materials to Ext. Got fed up with being in the city so made the big move to the desert area. Took two trips with two different 15k+ weight wyverns, on the first I was flying through the city, very high and thought to myself "man its high up here.. it would suck if it..." Attempting to Contact Ark Servers.... Fudge. Came back on waaaaaay down in the trench of the city. My wyvern was pretty much at the top of all the high buildings. Had to suicide and get back to base. Now I carry n extra flier on my hotbar at all times on Ext. Took a long time but I managed to get everything over to the new biome spot. Wanted to build around another city terminal so found one that wasn't too bad of a location and did the old official pve trick, slap up a load of gates around my spot. I hate it. It'll have to do. Turns out I built in the thick of battle Royale 24/7. All around me there's constant battles being fought, gangs of rampant morellatops laying waste, velos starting stuff, yuty sending stuff running all over, madness. Spent a good chunk of the day building / taming velos. The level distribution sucks here, took HOURS to find a good high level mating pair. Sunday: Went out to finally find some OSD or veins. I forgot how much I dislike flying around extinction, almost disconnect like 10 different places in the wastes. Find a yellow drop, toss out the gigas and have at it. Wave 2 the drop.. vanishes? Slightly irritating but I keep looking. Found an element vein, 25k. Edit: accidently pressed send! Whoops The vein went by pretty uneventful, been a while since I've done this and had a blast. Made it out with over 300 element worth and a good chunk of dust for CI. Wont be doing more without a server mate, its just too unstable out there for my liking. I need a new console, bad. Took it all back to base and finally made my tek rep! Used my hard element stuck on Ext to make my rep, a few gates and cryopods. Bred my velos for some eggs and body hopped over to CI. Laid down my velo eggs while I made a new place for my rep to sit. Spent the better part of Saturday looking for a high level mate for my velo and didn't even get one past 100 so I spent awhile breeding low levels with high levels to finally get a good mating pair. A server mate dropped by a nice pump shot for me and invited me to do some OSD but I literally just teleported back from Ext and passed him up. Did a bunch of mining (the new mining drill is awesome!!!) And converted all my element i farmed at eldrich to make my first tek transmitter here again! Woohoo. So excited tek phase starts. Already got a few taming pens planning with my new tek dino gates. Going to take a few days off ark because I got to play this weekend so much and the wife is a tad irritated
