  1. In Creative Mode it unlocks all the engrams. But if you haven’t legitimately learned some of the Tek Tier engrams you can‘t use them after logging out. You have to use the give engrams cheat for tek or give yourself ascension to unlock the engrams permanently.
  2. Yes. But the radial is for whilst unmounted. But you have to keep bringing up the radial to go from 1st to 3rd and back again. Just a touch frustrating. Lol! Ahh the joys of console! Lol! Ark on Xbox now has keyboard and mouse support and the January sales will be on soon.
  3. That isn’t the point. Break the world down into regions. Now estimate the number of players in each region. Allowing for PVE and PVP. Now estimate the number of servers for each mode for each region. Now look at what we have now. You can’t estimate the number because people have multiple characters playing different modes. Globally there would be servers with low activity. These could be grouped to save cost. Which is what they do do. There would be servers which are dead during the day because people with jobs can’t play Ark whilst at work. The only people on during employment hours are the unemployed, those who play games professionally and those on a day off. By accumulating player regions, like what we have now, they can choose where they play, which in turn means WC can provide less servers. Region locked requires WC to provide more servers resulting in high overheads. Higher overheads means less profit. But to overcome this you have the option of not provided a service to that region. I know a game who has a problem with Australia and New Zealand. The servers for them have been a problem since day one. It’s a MMO like this one but when Aussies and Kiwis try and Matchmake for a mission they have to wait 20 minutes for a game. They tried linking them onto Japan and that area but because in some missions communication is key it failed and the lag they experienced was game breaking. There’s more to it than meets the eye. All we see as players is one side of it. But having a game which is global and online and getting the game to run as smoothly as possible and as many people hooked up together isn’t an easy task. Dividing the world into regions is not the solution.
  4. I usually start on South Zone 1. Over the water and on the cliff to the left. It blocks 2 drops but I’m not too bothered. There’s another 4 at least in eyeshot. There a explorer note up their so I get a little boost. The grounds flat and I don’t have to build Dino gates everywhere as nothing of great danger ever comes near. Lag really pee’s me off. I used to build on herbivore island but brontos are a PITA. So I just build my metal outpost their and my ankies are nice and safe. Flying the metal back can get quite tedious too. I just use a raft every now and then and pray nothing attacks me on the way back. But a few shotgun shells soon sorts out any menacing Sarcos. I also make my sparkpowder on HI as it’s easier, as stone isn’t in abundance where I am. I build in stone so I can’t afford to waste any by turning it into flint and in SP things don’t spawn back as good. I’ve lost a few obsidian nodes from the volcano. They just won’t spawn back so those are probably lost for good.
  5. Pilgrimz Project, GG Fizz and On Cue all do great build tutorials on YouTube. Like someone said just adapt their build strategy to fit your needs. watching a heap of these with help you with how building mechanics work, the dimensions needed and what materials go together. For me, wood and metal is a no no. But a stone build with wooden features looks spot on. Some of the modern builds look quite awesome too. Bit costly, but if aesthetics is your thing then it’s something to aim for.
  6. Region Locked servers doesn’t make business sense. They want the servers to be running at max capacity 24/7 so they get more bang for their buck. If region locking was a thing, then their servers would be empty during normal working hours, and that’s money down the drain. And the PVP world would slowly come to an end. Very rarely do people raid someone whilst both parties are online. Region locking servers, Online raiding would be the norm.
  7. You have to have it set in your personal options/settings too. when you’re mounted it’s either LB or RB to switch from one to the other. Can’t remember which. And you can freely switch from 1st to 3rd at the click of a button. But the box must be ticked in player options.
  8. Someone changed their difficulty up to 1.0. LMAO! put it back down to 0.2. When you’re ready crank it up. Slightly. Little bit at a time. When you load in after changing the Difficulty, open up the admin commands and type. Cheat DestroyWildDinos This will not effect your tames but will force the game to spawn in dinos at the new setting. Takes a minute or so for them to spawn back in.
  9. It rains everyday on the Island. I would welcome that bug with open arms. My rain pattern is usually at round midnight so I can’t see the Santa drops. Or when ever I’m exploring somewhere new. Again, so I can’t see squat. Making it a very boring experience.
  10. I think in Single Player you can adjust the Structure Resistance to Zero. Meaning your structures become invincible. What I’m not sure about though is if rafts fall into this category or not. I would suggest testing it first with a newly crafted raft. No need to sink foundations etc. Just take it along the shore and agro something. Could use a sacrificial Dodo to lure a Sarco. I feel so bad for saying that. But it would be for a good cause. Let us know how you get on.
  11. Whilst in game press the pause button (small button on the right) where you can access options and resume. At the bottom of that list is the option to use keyboard and mouse. AWSD move character. Arrow keys move camera. So not left handed friendly. No keybinding option on Xbox. Keyboard controls can be found on the wiki.
  12. I want one of the stone collecting Dinos but I can’t find one. Haven’t checked out the mosh pit yet so I suspect they are all hiding up there.
  13. I loath the Raptor Pounce. The speed alone was bad enough, but adding the ability to knock you off your tame and pin you to the ground with no way to escape is ridiculous. And it happens so quickly, that 9 times out of 10 you have no time to react. Why can’t I just smack the thing around the head with my pick axe. That would soon teach it a lesson.
  14. I suggest single player. Use Woof Poof (YouTube) single player settings. DO NOT put the difficulty up to 1.0 until you are established. I decrease Dino Count to 0.75 to decease the amount of Raptors. Stay in South Zone and build Out Posts to do specific things. My base is in South Zone 1. Very safe. I have a Forge on Herbivore Island with 4 Anky tames to get my metal. A Tree Platform at the base of the Volcano for Tree Sap and a resting point to regain stamina. I was lucky enough to get a Tapejara very early on. Weight on Tappy is better then Ptera. My main objective early on is getting Tames for kibble. I have Pairs of Lystrosaurus, Parasaurs, Trikes, Pteranodons, Baryonyx, Turtles, and Moschops. 3 dodo’s 1M 2F. 4 Ankies 1M 3F. A F Rex, F Bronto and F Tappy. And a Oviraptor. And some males. Beaver and Theri. Theri was a nightmare without a trap but I did it. Lol! I myself get heart palpitations when playing PVP or in stressful situations in game. Don’t know why but it’s getting worse as I get older. Am 44. I think “The Change” is playing a part too. And when I’m Pre-Mensteal. I’m also female. Yeah I’ve got it all going on lol! Remember it’s just a game. You can make it as easy or as hard as you like. And when things get too easy, just up the difficulty slightly. Single player settings aren’t like official. There is secret calculations going on in the background. I think difficulty 1.0 on Single Player is not 1.0. It’s something higher. I think 0.44 is 1.0 difficulty with Single Player settings active. But Max Level dinos aren’t all that IMO. The amount of wasted points is unbelievable. Wasted points meaning a Tamed Flyer has exponentially high Oxygen or Food Stat but nothing in the way of Stam or Weight. No use what so ever. Same goes for land dinos. Can carry a 10 Tonne Truck but has no health or damage. Pointless. Enough about my gripes with Max Level Setting. And when you are confident playing the game, then venture over to official or unofficial, if you want to. Good luck with either of those. Finding a place to build can prove quite troublesome on both. And because people build huge bases the lag is real. And foundation spam is a thing also. And so is Admin abuse. And ganking Beach Bobs/Bobbetts. Pretty toxic really. Lol! You’re begged off in Single Player.
  15. In SP I’m finding landIng my Tappy on the gift as it comes done rather handy. It means I can regain stamina for a quick in and out when the gift lands and speed off to the next one.
