  1. Official? Unofficial? SP? I've seen contradictory reports on that. Seen just a couple weeks ago a streamer doing it live on Official PvE. I tried that technique on Unofficial PvE and it wasn't allowed. Guess it's some server setting, so YMMV.
  2. Just finished doing tek cave and overseer battle, and when the cinematic is supposed to come, I get a black screen instead. Game seems completely frozen, can't do anything. Is this some known issue? If I just Alt+F4 will it still count as done? And what about my stuff/dinos?.. Edit: I decided to alt+F4 afer waiting like 30 minutes. It counted towards ascension, and I didn't lose anything.
  3. Does anyone know what this is and what they do? They look like large mosquitos and are triggering my Valheim PTSD At first I thought it was the regular swarms from gen1, but they are much larger and seem to behave quite differently. They don't show up on the Wiki as unique gen2 creatures either. Edit: They seem to be the same as Gen1 indeed, just bigger. Not sure if they do anything different thou .. https://ark.fandom.com/wiki/File:Genesis_29.jpg "It is unknown if the size of the Insect Swarm in Genesis: Part 2 is intended to be larger than its Genes
  4. I don't think I'm mixing it up at all. I actually agree with this, except maybe for "Partly Dinos". I happen to think that a survival exploration game with Dinos is what makes Ark unique. The devs thought so too, so much that they stated that themselves. And by "Dinos", obviously we use that term as an umbrella for the creatures the game has. Everyone calls them dinos, even thou plenty of them are not. Some, as you correctly pointed out, are even just made up mystical creatures that exist only on fantasy stories.
  5. You seem to want me to separate one single issue. But that's not really a thing. For me it's the whole package. It's the direction the game took, with the combination of all those elements, from pew-pew lasers, arcade-y space ship combat, OP gear, missions, shops, etc. that turned Ark into a very different experience. It's not one single thing. Therefore Ark2, which has the same sci-fi background setting, is going to be that too? Right, so a new game, with the same sci-fi setting, with a connected story and known characters, will be very different in that aspect. How
  6. No, they don't. For me, a sci-fi setting doesn't necessarily mean space ships pew pew lasers and missions with scores and AI shops. I mean, seriously, think about how Ark felt like playing all the way from Island to Aberration ( and Extinction to some extent ), and then check this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7zYOmorfiw This is not what I expected Ark to turn into, but alas here we are. There's plenty of sci-fi games/movies/stories and whatnot where space ships, jetpacks and pew pew lasers aren't part of it. Are you going to say that they aren't sci-fi because they don
  7. I don't understand what are you talking about. You make it sound like it's a bad thing to have a opinion. I do believe I'm entitled to have an opinion, what's wrong with that? My opinion is that I'm not a huge fan of the direction the game took when it comes to steering off the exploration survival genre by introducing game play mechanics that have nothing to do with the reason why I fell in love with the game.
  8. Exactly. This is the whole point. it's not about the story nor about the sci-fi setting. The story is actually pretty decent. It's about the game play elements that Tek and HLNA store and missions introduce that completely change how we play the game, by making things too easy, by removing any sense of danger, risk vs. reward approach, struggle to survive and the joys of exploration.
  9. Like I said on a previous comment, being sci-fi isn't really the issue. You could tell from the start that the setup is basically enclosed artificial "arks" created and controlled by some alien intelligence. This is fairly obvious early on when you start playing. But you don't just go from that to obviously we will become power rangers with jetpacks, flying space ships shooting lasers guns, and buying good from a virtual AI with points we get from doing "missions" that have nothing to do with "survival". If you managed to predict all that, kudos to you. I surely did not.
  10. Last I heard, people are perfectly allowed to express their feelings about the direction the game is taking. Feedback is always a good thing, and usually those that bother doing that ( both positive and negative feedback ) are the ones that really love the game.
  11. I'm not projecting anything. I'm explaining why some people are disappointed with the overall direction the game took, which was the point of the OP. I'm happy that you are a skilled clairvoyant and managed to predict that we will would be flying space ships and shooting lasers, but many players didn't.
  12. True, you could tell from the start that the setup is basically enclosed artificial "arks" created and controlled by some alien intelligence. This is fairly obvious early on when you start playing. But you don't just go from that to "soon we will be be power rangers with jetpacks and flying space ships shooting lasers guns". The fact that it is a sci fi tale, says nothing about its direction and how it impacts the game.
  13. So when you first saw Ark years ago when it was just the Island with obelisks, a survival game with dinos, you immediately thought "soon we will be be power rangers with jetpacks and flying space ships shooting lasers guns". Yea, right..
  14. What that joke is meant to mean, is that we get to a point where there is no survival aspect to the game. There is no struggle to survive. Dinos are the ones that struggle to survive, not us. Wasn't meant to be taken literally
