      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

  1. Leading causes of death in ARK?

    Last death was #2 for me. My own Giga raged on me from fall damage and ,while being at 300 stacks, ate me and my complete inventory was gone. I set him to not collect loot. Wise choice for everyone else.
  2. A good laugh

    Torch BPs are the only reason I open white beacons. Just recently I found an app BP on Ragnarok. Those sell for a reasonably price on our server.
  3. Fortunately, the two servers we used to play on, survived the first batch of legacy-treatment. So we kept in doing what we did. Three month later, we decided to leave legacy behind. We were only three ppl in our tribe all the way along. We initially didn't intend on giving our stuff away, yet someone must've been at our base to not have anything despawn. Though, nothing got claimed. I made a post in these forums to give everything away for free. Surprisingly, no real interest has been in all of that. Another two weeks later, I logged in again just to see that only the metal foundations and our Tek Replicator and Transmitter were left. I asked in global if someone wants the remaining element for free and not even that had any interest. Long story short, we since play on an unofficial highly boosted PVP Server as the merchant (PVE) tribe, trading dinos and gear for everyone else fight with.
  4. ARK Digest Q&A!

    Would you consider making the language client-dependent within the search feature? Being on a non-english server, I have to use their language instead of the one that my game/console is set to. That will offer no results on-screen, yet I can 'transfer all' even if I get nothing showing up.
  5. You should suggest #3 in the Ark Digest.
  6. Please add snap to gates.

    If you don't want to use fence foundations, I'll give you a tip for managing 100% angled placement. Craft a wooden ladder, snap that to any existing foundation, climb up and look about 45' down and jump over it. Make sure you don't touch the mouse and press K (or enable Orbit Cam), and you'll be perfectly aligned with you flooring. Then use Orbit Cam to your advantage spotting any gaps on either side of the gate. I use this technique when placing any odd crafting table, vaults, fridges and whatnot.
  7. That just reminded me of the one episode of Futurama. Hot dogs made from 100% horse fed horse meat.
  8. I like the idea, but that is actually the opposite of what the sickle is doing. It harvests the fiber from berry bushes instead of the berries itself, so that wouldn't make much sense (in development thinking). @EternalUniverse Sounds like Minecraft to me, yet I'm unsure in how much that would fit into Ark.
  9. It's not the building system itself that is flawed in regards to your complaint. It's the player base that just want their personal space to keep other tribes/players off limits. With the current mechanics, (PVE) players have to use pillaring to their 'advantage'. Sure, there are tribes, that will use it to claim masses of land that they don't need. This is what you're describing. Everyone should have the right to build wherever they like. Though you're right, a limit on how far you can go from your main base would be good on paper. But this will also limit you to build any taming pen in the wild if the game decides that you've exceeded 'base range'.
  10. ARK Digest Q&A!

    @Kimsie You can disable 'Default Survivor Items' in the options menu, so you don't spawn with all the skins. Yet, I like the idea of them being craftable instead of given on death. That removes the urge to kill yourself when you want a skin, and also doesn't clutter any inventory in need to keep them somewhere.
  11. First off, I guess you got a typo there and meant 'taming' instead of 'trading'. Secondly, no. There's no explicit setting for effectiveness. The taming effectiveness (TE for further reference) is valued by how much food (and which) a creature will consume while being tamed. Kibble will give a creature (iirc) 130 food back when taming, raw meat only 50. Thus meaning that less food consumed will keep the TE as high as possible. As well as a lower drop rate in TE when using kibble. Given that they will consume 2.5x less food already with your settings, there won't be much of an incentive in using kibble over regular food.
  12. ARK Digest Q&A!

    Would you be able to add a Marshmallow-Man costume for the Rock Elemental? You know, this handsome fella.
  13. Ark Turkey Trial Event 2017

    Two days only? They should've had it run for at least the last weekend or better the whole upcoming week. Only way to kill one was with a Giga last year, everything else got 90% damage reduction. Hope they learned from their mistakes.
  14. Why no 2x raising?

    @bigfishrob Just to make it clear, you had 6 troughs for 12 Rexes - that's half a trough for each Rex. Not trying to be the grammar guy here, but you literally did what your respondant said.
  15. Why no 2x raising?

    @l4m3r It's not the rates in private servers that will get me, it's the community on officials that keeps me. We are a tribe of two, with two bases on two servers, playing for about 3 month on official PVE. We own to this date 450+ creatures, across both servers, that were either tamed, raised, claimed or traded by our own hands. We have experienced almost everything you can (except raids, but on that later). We raised Rexes for the majority of the one-week-long 3x event on release, we are breeding Jerboa colors just for sale, we are doing bosses each weekend if there's no breeding event. We traded with literally 100s of different people on 100s of servers. Try to advertise this on a private server with 2x breeding. What we are not doing is - raiding someone just to keep them small to not be threat later or for the fun of being OP. We've played on private PVE, PVP and official PVP, but the main problem (we have) is losing our precious time invested. Be it through wiped/unstable servers or some duds doing their best to be the biggest a-hole on 'their' server. We are two grown ups with jobs and families, but without much time. That's why we 'complain' about no events to get bigger instead of rebuilding to get crushed again. Don't you know why the big youtubers run their 4th, 8th or 50th season of ark? Because private servers are stale without anything new happening or someone new joining. That's why they restart every so often. Eventually going for total conversions without going back for vanilla ark. Inbefore you say that there is even grieving on PVE, you're right but on PVP - no one needs an excuse to destroy their neighbor. Sorry for derailing this topic, but I had to (yet again) explain what official PVE is for.
