  1. Honey should work as a lure. It will also attract everything else in the area as well, so be careful of that. Rare flowers should also work but will cause aggro on everything in the area. A third option is trying to glitch them into a taming pen on a raft... if they are near the shore. The proper way to have fixed this would have been to prevent pickup while a player is being carried by said creature. The drag weight could have been changed to a higher value when this happens, preventing pickup, and then restored to normal when the creature was no longer carrying a player. That or a simpl
  2. Bright, rosy and just all around look how wonderful things are! Yet, you guys don't engage with the community, don't fix the major issues that people constantly have to bring up, don't properly test your updates and don't keep all your clients in working order.We have literally had broken Linux clients since the major update on Feb 25th. They don't work and none of us can play. I paid you for your game, i even paid for the first season pass, and yet you don't give a crap about keeping my game functional.No more money from me. You guys/gals can earn my respect and money back when you get your a
  3. I don't think anyone expects a flawless release even with testing, but issues that wipe servers/clients or completely break them because critical files were not included in the patch, those would have been caught and fixed. How about flyers not working where they should, that would have likely been caught. Its also highly possible they would have noticed some of the issues with the new creatures had they properly beta tested the damn thing. There will always be some balancing and bugs after a major launch, but the crap show that happens with Wildcard is always something far beyond special.
  4. @Vas, it's not Steams fault at all. As you've said, Wildcrap should have stored the settings in a place that isn't touched. Basically, NOTHING but the game itself should ever touch anything inside the Saved folder. Content and settings should be generated by the game on first run. If a setting requires updating, then you have the game itself check and update that setting. That said, i do wish Steam would offer us a way to block/refuse updates and a way to rollback to previous versions. Being on Linux, this would be wonderful as Wildcrap enjoys screwing up our clients at every turn and the
  5. The problem is them releasing crap like this in the first place without doing proper beta testing. Much of the problems, crashes and issues could have been found and fixed before it screwed up everyones game. You would still have minor bugs and issues to fix after release, but not on this level. You also wouldn't have screwed up peoples saved games and settings.
  6. Hooray!! Instead of properly fixing and optimizing our game correctly, we are going to simply remove minor poop that people had to work to acquire. No consideration for the community or their input, no options to allow non-official servers to keep things available as is, just quick and poopty patching and removal jobs. Surprised i am not. This is why i don't even bother with events anymore and another reason i will not be supporting any future DLC from WildCard.
  7. Even if its on wandering, the whistle follow (one) command should get the Quetz to follow you. Just make sure you are looking directly at it when you do the whistle. The all follow and stop whistles could be set to ignored and may be why they are not working. The other option would be the "playersonly" cheat command. This command freezes everything and only allows players to move. You wont be able to open/close doors, so keep that in mind.
  8. Not so much dragging them around (although that would be nice as well) as being able to catch them properly. The drag weight affects bolas and traps as well, meaning they stop working completely. Megalosaurus and Kapro will aggro and can be lead into pins/enclosures, the Galli and Procoptodon will not. I'm specifically looking to tame up Procoptodon for breeding on my server. They are already rare spawns and spawn in very dangerous areas of the island. Not having the ability to pick them up or temporarily lock them in place for taming is unacceptable and makes them extremely difficult to ca
  9. Revert v303.1 drag weight changes... @Cedric Since there is a mesh detection/prevention system in place now, could you please roll back the drag weight changes that were applied on the v303.1 update. That or give us options in the .ini files to revert them. They make working with these creatures extremely difficult for no reason other then PvP mesh blocking. Thanks v303.1 - 12/11/19 Modified Drag weight of creatures to prevent carry by Quetz and Crab: Galli Kapro Megalosaurus Procoptodon
  10. I wouldn't worry about it. They always keep the Windows and Linux servers working with the Windows client, there would be complaints otherwise. The server versions are also normally just server features, so being behind shouldn't have any affect besides not having the latest server side features. To answer your second question. Linux is free and normally more stable as a server host. That's the reason most hosting uses it. You can probably find a Windows based host if you absolutely need one, but the cost is normally more because of the Windows licencing.
  11. Anyone try other types of stairs/doors? Since the server update i can't place stone double doors, stone stairs or reinforced double doors. I can place wood versions of these. I also tried admin commanding in metal versions and they would not place either.
  12. Everyone check your versions. The Linux version on my system was updated to 304.4 this evening.
  13. Well, i thought we wouldn't get an update either... glad to be proven wrong once and awhile. Just got client update to 304.4 on Linux. Check yours and see if you are updated and live again. I also don't think there is any way to downgrade the servers once they update.
  14. My best advice would be to find someone locally who could help you, especially if your uncomfortable doing it yourself. Beyond that, you can also look at the youtube video i linked below. It starts right at the AMD driver page and shows the process. Here is the download page on AMD for your driver: https://www.amd.com/en/support/graphics/radeon-500-series/radeon-500-series/radeon-530
  15. Best thing you can do is head to the Steam store page and flag/report ARK as broken. They shouldn't be selling it in this condition. Honestly, its really a low thing Wildcard has done yet again and they have been doing it since launch in 2017. We have been cut out of the holiday event and even prevented from playing over the holiday break. The dev team and company just don't care. I've submitted a suggestion that they move development to a beta branch and give everyone a stable option for a client and sever. It will go nowhere i'm sure.
