Cloth Armor (2/5)



  1. I don't see anything about when we will be able to deactivate the Winter event without losing all the stuff built during the event. Has this been addressed and I missed it?
  2. This is not the case. The current "workaround" is to do a wild dino wipe via commands to ensure a save. But I can attest to this not working every time. It does however make the game save more often when exiting.
  3. I know this is old but I came across this thread and I just wanted to offer my sympathy.  Holy crap the jabs you took just trying to help people out.  It's amazing how stubborn and arrogant people can be behind a keyboard. Haha!

      Yeah, some people just don't understand how Windows 10 and Xbox Live works on there. As a developer myself, I knew very well how it works and I think the developers from Wildcard made an assumption that it would work and later found out it that it won't. At least until MS changed how Windows 10 works.

  4. Spent days looking for a max-level Thylocoleo on The Island and finally found one! Tamed it up then went back out to go after an Argentavis I saw previously. On the way got pounced in the air by yet another max-level Thylacoleo! Lol! All that searching to have one just "fall from the sky". I did have to spend about 10 minutes searching for it after the pounce due to the annoying flee mechanic they have after pouncing. But I got it and have bred my new super Thylacoleo and it looks like a white tiger. His name is Tommy
  5. Wrapping up my new workshop/storage facility design in my new base. It's the best feeling when I finish my main workshop and can finally get organized.
  6. I'll take the non-answer as an admission that your trying to blow this out of proportion and make it seem worse than it is. There is no reason you couldn't have flipped your server anytime after the release when you were ready.
  7. You packed up your Valguero server in a "rush" to prepare for an unreleased DLC with no concrete release date or even recent information? And this is Wildcard's problem? Why wouldn't you wait for the actual release and then pack up for the switch? That way you can also evaluate all the inevitable bugs with the release and decide if it's worth the risk to move. And I sympathize with trying to play during a school schedule but no release window is ideal for everybody.
  8. I am in the software industry. I thoroughly test updates and patches before I deploy them. People test my patches after I have tested them just to make sure I didn't miss anything because hey, nobody is perfect. I schedule updates and patches to release to multiple platforms and app stores simultaneously. I'm pretty confident I would be fired if I released a negligent patch that took down our apps or services in any way. Just because Wildcard is a game developer doesn't mean they're doing it right. I give them credit in that this is a very complex game. But people paid money for a game and they have every right to complain when it doesn't work as intended or at all. I can understand in-game bugs and glitches and I'm willing to work around them. I don't even get mad about exploiters because that happens in every game. But these constant updates that bring the game down for at least 2 days every time are frustrating and unsustainable in a game as high-maintenance as Ark. And there is no reason for it if the updates are done right. Windows 10 users had a two-day outage recently because of a patch that only added three Genesis HLNA explorer notes in a patch. Three explorer notes I don't have access to because I currently have no plans to buy Genesis. I am not defending all comments made at Wildcard as some people take it way too far. But Wildcard needs to answer for the constant down time caused by patches and the SERIOUS lack of communication with it's user base. There is no way I am buying into more DLC or anything else related to Wildcard, including Atlas, when I know this is what to expect. I would love to be pleasantly surprised by Wildcard and not have to miss the first two days of the Christmas event as a result of the patch initiating it this next week. But as you can imagine, like all other Win10 users, my expectations are otherwise...
  9. May I just point out that Nitrado at least provides some level of customer service? They are experiencing difficulties with this recent server patch not applying correctly and this is what I find on my server dashboard. It's small but it is at least something. It lets me know that they acknowledge there is a problem and that something is being done about it. Meanwhile Wildcard hides when there is trouble and seems to be unaware of, or ignore the fact that Windows 10 users have not been able to play consistently for some time.
  10. Most likely. Win10 users have that right now. Apparently our update was pushed too early (the irony...) and that's why we cannot connect to servers currently. I fired up a single player game and saw most, if not all, the QOL changes Cedric mentioned previously.
  11. I'm sorry but none of that excuses the fact that I cannot play for a week straight without days of down time. And writing off people that like to play with others as toxic and not worthy of attention isn't the answer. They (assumedly) paid for their game as well. I'm happy for you that you have enjoyed many more hours in this game. But I completely disagree that any sort of enjoyment fulfilled makes it okay for Wildcard to constantly take the game I paid for away from me with this bad update procedure, sometimes rendering "time enjoyed" nullified as a waste. If it were just in-game bugs, I would still be just as understanding as I was previously because I could still be enjoying the game around them.
  12. I was understanding until recently. I get it, this is an extremely complex game. That is a major part of the appeal for me. I love this game! But my frustrations stem from Wildcard's actions and not any bug in the game. Win10 users just got through a two day downtime because we got an update well after everybody else, thus preventing us from connecting to servers. Now we are in day two of yet another outage because we apparently got the QOL update too early. So in exchange for bigger meat stacks and more fuel efficient cookers, we cannot connect to servers again. I have also gotten numerous hours of entertainment from this game. But the results of that time are currently being killed and destroyed while we cannot connect to our servers thus making it a waste. Every update is a hassle and usually breaks something. And there are so many little and sometimes useless updates instead of periodic "substance" updates. This game is too high-maintenance to afford so much down time. And now Win10 users have the holiday event update to look forward to next week which will probably keep us from connecting again right after the current outage is corrected. Couple all this with the fact that Wildcard seems to go into hiding when some (ANY) information would be appreciated. But they have plenty of time to keep advertising Genesis. Why on Earth would I buy into Genesis when I cannot even play my current maps? And isn't it unethical to entice gamers to buy a DLC with all these super amazing additions and new dinos just to nerf them all to being near useless after they purchase? I paid my money. I want to play my game please.
  13. Thank you for the response on the tame efficiency effect on breeding stats.  I can only post 4 a day so cannot reply in the thread.  I wanted to thank you for the information.  I had no idea it was a thing!

  14. I just started a single-player Abberation map because I'm on the Windows 10 client and cannot connect to any servers. First time playing Abberation. I started in the first (assumed easiest) spawn location and had to endure about 15 Raptor/Basilisk deaths before I could finally get on my feet and tame my own Raptor pack. Just kept telling myself "gotta get to those tranq arrows". So many Lystos, Moshops, and Parasaurs lost along the way as well. I felt pretty competent at Ark until I tried starting Abberation. Lol!
