  1. It's all moot now anyway. I went back in to unclaim my 6 dilo SEAL team and my Ptera Holy Hellena when a lvl 100 Alpha Raptor strolled past all the bases in the starting area and killed me and everything else off.
  2. The other issue, is if I had the ability to use the green obelisk, I couldn't because some genius thought it would be a good idea to park all his dino's on it. Same with "littering", too much selfishness. But's that's what it was, a foundation with a pillar in the center, or a foundation with a wall, it's still "littering", it still makes the map look like garbage and still screws up resources. I guess not needing resources is good for those that are already max level and have every engram in the game. But for anyone wanting to start a new character, it completely screws them. I ca
  3. Based on a previous thread I made on my initial 30 minute experience, I took people's advice to heart and considered their recommendations, and I don't think it's for me. 1. Server lag: about every 15-20 minutes, my character freezes in place from 15-30 seconds. I have a gigabit fiber optic connection and the server ping is typically less than 25ms. That's patently insane that this happens and has the potential of happening at a really bad time. 2. Pillaring: Or what I prefer to call "Littering". I guess I can understand to some degree why it is done, however, it's obnoxious and
  4. Interesting you mentioned this. When I first got into that server, i saw pillars in what appeared to be arbitrary locations surrounding the first huge base I came across and didn't understand what it was all about. some were one-wall high pillars, others were metal foundations with one pillar in the center. I guess that is how ppl claim space?
  5. This was certainly an education in ARK I was not expecting. Thank you for the time you invested in typing all that out. I hadn't considered the transferring of dinos from one map to the next and back again, since every single player game I've done I started from scratch. But the upkeep and maintenance of dinos definitely makes sense. I get it now. Would it matter going into a server with a low amount of days established or higher, or does it even really matter in the first place since I'm going in a starting level?
  6. After 900 hours of solo/local host playing I tried an Island server, can't remember which but it had already been established for thousands of days. Very bizarre experience for me, because I didn't know what to expect. After about 30 seconds of looking around, I saw the largest metal structure(base), so big it took a couple of minutes for it to even load in. I would never consider building something this massive in one of my solo games. I only remember seeing one person in chat. I didn't chat with anyone though. I felt massively out of place. That initial structure wasn't the only one,
  7. Think i figured it out. I just built a fertilized egg collector a short while ago, then forgot all about it; it disappears into the collector. At first I thought the oviraptor was snagging it because it was running by every time i dropped it. Though i did notice the nest i got the egg from has disappeared, is that normal? and the ice wyvern that was in the area is gone.
  8. This is single player/local host, no MP. I thought spoil timer was specific to health. Pic of it before it vanishes. This is on Ragnarok. still troubleshooting this...
  9. Ice wyvern egg with a 7 day spoil timer and a 33 minute incubation and it vanishes 30 seconds after placing it. Any ideas?
  10. been trying to get them to help me fix my PC version since July, so, good luck!
  11. That's the problem, DEVs do not respond to anything. I don't think Epic is going to do anything because Ark is built on an older version, so the onus is on Ark devs, which is obvious they have no intention of addressing it. It's ridiculous for something like this to go on this long and the DEVs don't have the balls to actually acknowledge it, while they take everyone's money. As a matter of fact, ARK Devs should pay me since I spent more time trying to troubleshoot the issue than they have: https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/pc-bug-reports/latest-build-crashesunplayable-r
  12. This has been an ongoing issue for 4+ years according the sheer number of search results and STILL none of the devs have addressed the "Unreal Engine is exiting due to D3D device being lost. (Error: 0x887A0006 - 'HUNG')" In before self proclaimed experts point me to the launch options, settings, yada yada yada....been there done that for God knows how long. Am I to believe there is not a single dev, programmer, coder, nerd, anywhere, that has the faintest clue how to read a dump file and understand what it says, even though every single dump file points to: SYMBOL_NAME: sho
  13. Steam SP/Local Host - No sound after menus As per title, anyone seen or dealt with this? I'm certainly not expecting any support from the devs, so I'm hoping a forum goer has run into this. Seconds before loading into the map, the sound cuts out and there is no audio at all after that.
