  1. I wasnt actually planning on playing last night after being away for work for a few days, but I had basically just plopped myself into bed early when I noticed the call had gone out on our discord that a high level rhyniognatha had been found and the mods were holding a rhynio impregnating party. It was a level 270 (max level 300 on our server). I couldnt miss this.

    Thankfully I had already found and killed a male for the pheomone so I was all good there. Annoyingly I only had a lower level 120 bronto for this, I had been meaning to find a higher level for a rhynio but I hadnt had the time to get around to it. I am still trying to set up properly basically. My base is in full swing, the main build is down, got a green house, nice water pen for the basilos and a nice small hatchery out building. I am still working towards the industrial structures like the forge and I havent had time to tame up kibble creatures yet, still using prime meat to tame... 

    Grabbed all the stuff I needed and set of to the mods base on the east coast on my argy, annoyingly at the complete opposite end of the Island from my base on the west coast. Eventually got there and with help the bronto was knocked up by the rhynio, along with a fair few other brontos already there. After an hour and a half it popped. It came out at about 120 so not the best considering the female was 270, but hopefully more than good enough for the utility use I plan for this.  It came out hot pink though, might be from its mutation. I cryoed it up (we have a cryo mod) and flew back to base. I shall hopefully have time to raise this tonight.

    If you look at the page for the original version of the game on the Nintendo site, there is a link for DLCs. Click that and it will bring you to the Ultimate Survivor Edition.

    They have it available now. You may not be able to see the updated graphics or Scorched Earth yet as the official time is 10am EST for launch, but it is at least there.

    I can find it on the US webpage but struggling with finding the relevant UK page.

    Nitrado has really turned into a bush-league company. After days of non-functioning servers they finally updated 2 of our servers and left 2 not updated yesterday.  I'd really like to know what in the heck is going on over there.

    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. 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.

    Nice to see WildCard pushing the advertising campaign when there are players who can't even play because the last update created a blue screen issue #Priorities 


    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.

  6. 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.

    Enjoy man :)

    im going the opposite direction haha.. Was a PC gamer, then onto Xbox to chill out more, onto mobile now to chill even more. 

    Have fun with all those cheats, I mean mods :P


    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.

    The Point is: im not surprised at all !!! But again why blame People that are trusting promises of Studio Wildcard instead of getting the fact that Wildcard dont care tomorrow of what they tell you today?

    Just dont trust them at all then, I mean thats what I do now. Makes life so much easier.

  9. 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.

    Im sorry to hear man. We put a lot of hours into that game. You were an awesome Tribe mate and its sad to hear the literal longest nitrado hoster (DJ) is calling it quits. I wish he was still on forums to properly thank in a public manor. 

    Maybe we will have to link up on Facebook or something :) I had to temporarily disable Discord but when my new phone arrives ill load it back on and we can catch up!


    Good idea @Cymas i bet the admin would let us, too. I know for a fact Saltire has major sentimental attachment to those lines ha ha

    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.

    @AngrySaltire You could always transfer your breeding lines to SP so you don't lose them entirely. That way if you ever feel the interest in returning you've still got something.


    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.

  12. Ah well it looks like this run on Ark is coming to an end, it was a good run. Looks like our cluster is closing down soon (by the end of the year) as the server owner has had enough of dealing with all the server shenanigans, I have been expecting this for a while but thought there was a little more time. Basically the Center server on the cluster self destructed and that was the final straw. My stuff was thankfully all on The Island server so its safe for the time being. I havent been able to play much recently anyway between work and what not so its not too bad (Pokemon has sucked me back in). Might be a good time to take a break from Ark anyway , might potter about in single player for a bit if I have time but we shall see. Sucks about all those breeding lines (particularly my prized otter, thyla etc lines) but hey ho on to new adventures else where I guess, what ever that might be.
