  1. If WC decides to butcher another mod map (Fjördur? ) I think they should do two official versions of it... 1. That is butchered and doesn't give players all the dinos 2. One that has everything, but in order to play it you need the correct DLC's for Dinos This way they don't have to worry about people getting DLC dinos "for free". And I think it'd be easily executable, although a bit confusing for the players. But rather this than half-assed maps.
  2. From the ARK wiki, regarding the Lava Cave on The Island: Lava will not kill you instantly, but will do 75 damage every second. It is possible to save yourself if you manage to find a rock to jump on On Mobile however, lava kills anything instantly, making escape impossible. I'm not sure why, but I want to remember lava being extremely dangerous, like killing you in one hit. 50 damage is a polite way of saying "Sir, please don't step on me". I think it should deal the same damage everywhere though, because that could definitely surprize you...
  3. First, I didn't know Thylas weren't allowed in the arena. How is one supposed to know that? Activate the boss fight just to realize you're getting solo tp'ed? Second, DILO about the Amarga. I was contemplating using it for the monkey king but I heard how much of a nightmare it was to tame so I passed it off for now. But you're telling me you can't even use it for bosses? What the hell man should get some kind of reward for putting up with that insanely tedious taming method... Must be crazy good in PvP otherwise it's completely useless, just like it is in PvE now.
  4. TL;DR: Add challenge caves or I'm not interested. First off, I'm not too familiar with the original "Lost Island" mod map, but I feel like this map have to bring the good ol' caving back! I'm a PvE player who's been playing through all the official ARK's and some of the extras with my gf in co-op. Genesis 2 Critique When Genesis 2 dropped we we're so excited, exploring the landscapes eagerly hoping to find some hidden challenges along the way. To our disappointment these vast lands are basically only more of the same. Soon enough we accepted the fact that "the terminals are the caves" and the rest of this huge, empty map might just be base locations for PvP. Some wasted potential, but the ARK is all right overall tbh. Crystal Isles & Ragnarok While waiting for the next story ark to drop, we tried out these two huge maps as well. Both had unique and cool landscapes but they also felt a bit empty. For Ragnarok, we prepared ourselves a ton before cave hunting. It was so big we couldn't find them, so had to look it up online. We got to this huge underground cave, excited once again. Got lost, couldn't find anything... And then eventually we came across 2-3 Megalosaurus. Sleeping. Killed them, looked up coordinates for the 2 artifacts which had maybe 1 or 2 scorpions protecting them. This was no challenge. This was empty and boring. We quit the map directly after that. I've heard there are more caves on this map that are harder (Ice Queen etc) but this was too big of a turn-off. Moving over to Crystal Isles; We had a great time discovering the different biomes and we found a magnificent base location in the beautiful pink tree zone, where we decided to build. On our journey we saw something orange and shiny up a hill. "- Oh, an artifact! Well that was easy. But I'm sure there are some challenge caves as well." Same thing again, too big to explore and we had to search for coordinates online. And the same story here, no challenge getting these artifacts either. THE ISLAND! This is by far the best ARK ever (Aberration and Extinction are incredible as well, but they haven't got a chance). The story is brilliant and every corner of this map has its purpose. Not to mention the caves! You really have to progress in the game to be able to overcome the challenges these bring. And they're unique as well; from extreme cold to poisonous gas to extremely tough enemies to deep-sea exploring to lava trenches... The list goes on and on. I've played from beginning to end on this map twice now and I'll do it again, having a blast all the way from start to finish! I'd love to see something even remotely to this in the new map. Force us to use climbing gear for one cave. Toss me into a pit with angry monkeys throwing poop at me in another cave. Make a non-cryopod cave where only me and my Chitin-hating buddy can fit, so we have to fight off scorpions and mantises by foot. Make it unique and exciting before we try to challenge the end-boss! Not to sound too grumpy about Gen 2, but you've got a good chance of retribution right here.
  5. Just crashed hunting explorer notes. This will help me catch up to where I was, thank you guys.
  6. Me and my GF crashing inside the Elemental Vault (last artifact cave) on PC. Can't complete it as it is now and I really don't want to cheat to get it. Gonna give it a few days and eventually we'll cheat if WC treats this bug like a wc...
  7. All the titan battles are rather unique fights. I'd probably not go for 2 gigas, although you got some strong ones there that could probably do it (esp. with mate boost). The tree will root (=dismount) you and the Ice will freeze (=dismount) you. In both situations you want to move quickly to dodge the "dismount-attacks", which can get tricky on a giga. If you absolutely want to do it on gigas, I'd probably breed some for assistance and/or wear full Tek so you can fly and dodge when you get dismounted.
  8. Make sure your mounted mate haha. It's a tough boss for sure. I found the fight after, when you got the Megamek, to be far easier. The Megamek is op as hell, would be fun if it had more uses than only that fight (maybe missions or something).
  9. An additional extra week delayed. Well, I guess it could've been worse. I'm sure they'll at least throw in a good sale around that time to make up for it!
  10. Would be nice if we could grind them but for even less resources (like max cap 50 metal per item etc).
