  1. Have you actually installed the DLC ? I took in the update and stuppidly thought it was the map, and it wasnt. Go in to the steam page for the actually dlc and download it from there.
  2. Havent had much time as it dropped late last night here. Took in an update tried to fire up the map. Actually had to download the map as I suspespected I would lol, managed to get in. Tried mucking around with Nvidia Ansel as I do with every new map, but its currently telling me a supported game is need to use the feature which is weird.... Hopefully get to start a playthrough tonight on our cluster, after work. Havent decided on if am completely beach bobing it or not. Id prefer to beach bob it, but dont have much time with work.
  3. I know Nitrado are renowned for being unreliable, but the last few weeks have been something else. Maybe I am not looking in the right places, but they seem to be particularly quiet. Considering WC uses them for official ls too, am surprised I havent seen much mentioned.
  4. Am assuming all these issues people are complaining about are related to the ongoing issues at Nitrado ? Our Unofficial cluster has been unplayable for about 2 weeks now.
  5. Am almost tempted to get it just to see if my Switch would go nuclear attempting to play this lol.
  6. Am buzzing for the new hawk too, am going to breed the heck out of these !
  7. I love Hyaenadons as a go to for the likes of the hard swamp cave on the Island. Just go in with a full pack and a ride a half decent mount like a baryoynx, let the Hyaenadons go wild infront of you. They clear the cave with ease.
  8. So many cool and game changing things in here. I look forward to seeing these things in game. Something that jumps out at me though is the breedable wyverns, and yet no mention of Rock drakes.
  9. Nice ! An ammonite chibi ! Lord Helix here I come !
  10. Well this comment section decended into an absolute cesspit.
  11. Cant wait to see it in game. Lools great. I am just hoping the rocket booster is an optional thing for the saddle. Not sure what I feel about strapping a rocket to my pterosaur.
  12. Looking forward to a new map to explore and a new dino to tame. I now know what my next breeding project is going to be. I just hope the map is stable.
  13. Been a while since my last post. But with @d1nks request I thought I would come up with a brief summary of my adventures over the last few months. Maybe I'll post more often, but probably not too often as there is only so much I can do to make banging my head against the breeding RNG wall interesting. I have set up on Ragnarok, Valguero, Genesis and The Island. I originally set up on Ragnarok and it was my main set up but I have recently moved my main base of operations to Valguero, was getting tired of the Ragnarok hiccups. The Island is mostly a small outpost for boss fighting. Am looking at setting up on Abberation, mainly to set up a metal farming out post. Maybe make a mobile forge base on the back of a megachelon for the giggles. Undoubtedly I'll set up on Crystal Isles aswell when that comes out. My main activity is definitely breeding at the moment. The S+ and Immersive taming mods really spice breeding up a bit. I mean I get to tame, breed and mutate wyverns and alpha wyverns. I love the S+ mutators, it makes breeding so much more rewarding. I am actually breeding and stacking mutations rather than just hunting for half decent stats and combining nice colours. Its amazing what you can breed up, if a little OP, but it still takes a lot of commitment to breed up such creatures. My deinonychus line is great, literal giga killers. My theri line even though I havent maxed out the melee can take down the alpha dragon in a single phase. I can solo purple OSDs on Extinction with my new gigas. I can go into the murder murder snow on Ragnarok butt naked with my otters as they have so much melee. My current lines include rexes, theris, gigas, otters, thylas, deinonychus, alpha wyverns, manas, basilos and x-mosas. Current in progress projects are manas, ferox, tusos and megalodons, and I have started up the rexes and thylas again to increase the melee as far as I can take it. I am dying to start rock drake breeding though. In terms of bosses, I have done alpha broodmother, megapithicus and dragon, alpha tek cave, Alpha Rockwell and beta master controller. Tbf we cheesed the likes of the overseer and rockwell with gigas but I intend to do it legit eventually. My theris and rexes are insane never mind with a yuty buff, so.it should be feasable to go in solo to the tek cave. For Abberation it shouldnt be too bad to tame up rock drakes and megalosaurs and breed them up a bit for Rockwell. I have just finished up the x-mosas and basilo breeding, and a group of us had planned on taking on Moeder this weekend, but we had to call it off. Genesis Ocean biome is crash zone central at the moment. Future plans include Scorched and Abb caves and bosses, Extinction titans and continuing Genesis. Havent played too much over the last week or two. Despite so called lockdown I have been busy with work. But from next week I get to be forloughed, so hey lots of free time, so I might get to make another post sooner rather than later.
  14. Yeah I have actually. But tell you what I'll write up an update tonight.
  15. They are pushing the advertising campaign so hard there are literally multiple threads in the Genesis sub topic complaining about almost the complete lack of advertising, information and hype about the DLC from WC.
  16. C'mon guys lets be real here, we all would have been severely disappointed if they released it on time, many of us would have lost many a bet on this. Next question is will it be delayed again, start placing your bets. My money is on the 31st of March. Looks like we have a firm date now though. Personally am in no rush at the moment, so much to do so little time.
  17. Oh definitely. Ark became immeasurable more enjoyable for me when I left official to Unofficial and lowered my expectations of what was to come to 0. Glad I could make you laugh and thanks for the candy !
  18. Funny bit is I have this fancy computer and actually little time to play with it lol. I love the cheats even if some of them do feel a little cheaty ! Am kinda tired and dont have time for the eternal grind now, and boy do some of these mods take the grind right out.
  19. Oh I love candy ! Just dont trust them at all then, I mean thats what I do now. Makes life so much easier.
  20. Peope seem surprised that they are removing yet even more Legacy Servers. I mean did you all not see it coming ? Like really ? I mean Legacy has it marked literrally on the tin. There is a reason why a lot of us left official even though some of our servers survived the first initial wipe.
  21. Between my new job (I travel alot now) and life I havent had too much time for gaming. Still, with my new job and now a steady income I took a leap and busted some money into a gaming PC, building my own rig. Been dreaming of doing this for a while. Now I can play all those games I have been literally eyeing up for years but my laptops of old never had a chance of playing, thank goodness for Steam sales. Armed with my new PC and 2 weeks holiday I have some time to jump back into Ark. I pottered around in single player for a bit before an old friend and tribe mate from Ark EA days spotted that I was now playing on steam and invited me to join his cluster, a boosted server cluster with mods, particularly S+ and Automated Ark with a few others. Started out on Ragnarok and got to work with progression. Leveled up and built myself a raft and started exploring the coast line. First trip was to the highlands to tame up some equus. Grabbed some rockarrots and tamed a couple of horses. I then eyed up the west coast islands for potential base locations but all were taken. I focussed on taming next and built a second raft for taming. I snagged a ptera and then took the taming raft to the nearest Argy spawn and lured a low level argy into the trap and tamed it. I then moved off to the southern islands and then tamed a 145 thyla I spotted and then a thorny dragon. Next port of call was finding a base location. I had a few ideas. I took argy inland and I first scouted out one of my old base locations from my previous cluster and to my astonishment it was free. I love this location, overlooking green obelisk valley, its nice and central with resources all around particularly close to the metal in the canyons. At which point my friend hooked me up with some gear and creatures, including an alpha wyvern (are tamable on the cluster). Am not going to use these gifts for too long, feels a bit cheaty but it allows me to get on my feet quickly. Cant wait to get some new bloodlines going and breeding wyverns, drakes and Griffins are a thing so I have that to look forward to aswell. Built the beginnings of a base as well as a new breeding barn, falling back on my traditional base design. Am still getting my head round all these mods, particularly the Automated Ark mod, its a bit overwhelming coming from console. Its definitely going to cut out alot of the grind. And boy does the actual S+ mod make building so much easier. Spent time chasing down Raptor Claus, mainly for these new chibis. Scored some nice ones including a reaper. I think the next plan of attack is finish off establishing the base, continue advancing technically and rasing some wyvern eggs I managed to retrieve from the scar and the murder snow.
  22. All good things come to an end, and I dont consider it wasted time at all even in the event of losing everything. For me its all about the journey. You too were an awesome tribe mate, so many good memories. I know DJ does occasionally frequent the forums, so could be worth a shout out. DJ says he'll open up transfers close to the servers going down. Most definitely, not that I use FB that all to often lol. Ah I have been missing our wee pokemon chats on discord.
  23. I might try and see if its possible to do this, not sure if the server is configured to allow transfers between the cluster and single player. Am not fussed really but would be nice to keep some incase.
