  1. Max tamed points you have seen?

    That explains a few things, Ive actually never scrolled down in dododex past the advertisements in the few years I've used it, guess I've become too used to always typing the exact stats and not points ... going to need fix that other comment I put above now once I find a proper calculator. Sorry about that everyone.
  2. How difficult is hard broodmother

    In legacy we took a group of 20 rex, averaged around level 240 hatched, and had apprentice saddles on them. Took 3 min for it to be a total wipe and we lost everything, I think the stats of broad have been changed some since then, but this should give you a idea on the need for better saddles. (possible suggestion, you can use megatheriums, they get a bonus vs spiders) https://ark.gamepedia.com/Megatherium
  3. All I want for Christmas is a Christmas event that isn't during Christmas. Christmas in July, I'll take that (Not home for three months starting mid December each year)
  4. Vulture or Dimorphodon

    Both are good and similiar in stats, dimorphodon has the edge in spent stats however and better ai. Vulture is easy to raise eating only spoiled meat so they are easy to replace. raw power use dimorphs, easy to replace use vultures, its more personal choice here. Or do both as one can raise the other with spoiled meat
  5. Water pipes and property

    On SE we used to tell people they could build off of our pipes in the air when they made a house under our pipes. (had a waterpipe from river go across half the map in a straight line) They snapped to ours no problem. (on se players cant use the wells in pve for water pipes) Building into one persons base with your pipes however is considered a griefing method by some, players place hundreds of pipes in others bases/walls, not exactly a nice thing to do.
  6. Max tamed points you have seen?

    The highest stats overall I have seen on freshly tamed/ non mutated hatches tames are This year - new servers (screenshot is a mix between two of our tames, no mutations but it will give you a idea on the stats) 49 points in melee on a rex (original rex the stat was from was tamed by someone on server 82, we bought one of their eggs, but some people have stats that are higher now then this) Legacy servers - (dont have pictures anymore, left legacy for new servers) 55 hidden speed points on a bronto... I wasn't happy with the useless bronto with no proper stats (speed points are not counted) Most of the other values of the bronto was in the 20's for points, This is mostly a guess, that number might be off by a few points, hard remembering stats when I killed off the tames back when servers were wiped on legacy the first time. Had a penguin with a lot of food but I cant remember its ballpark stats for exact points, I kept penguins around for a joke as it was something that people said I had too much time on my hands breeding them, never did have a pair for the food penguin... --- And birds that can be ridden pretty much out compete everything since you get a extra 40-60 levels now in random places with speed stats blocked on them. 60 points in one of their stats are not as rare anymore with a entire stat removed from its math. So overall, the highest I've seen is the 40-60 point range on official servers, however these by themselves are trash as the other levels get really bad the higher one specific stat is, only for breeding if its a usable stat. I should also mention, been playing ark officials since october 2015, tamed around 4-6 tames total with the higher stats in the years Ive been playing, they are not common.... And still mistake prone for stats I guess. Post was fixed, didn't realize I was using wrong calculator (dododex instead of smartbreeding) Why does this game have such complicated math? Honestly we shouldn't need 3rd party calculators for stuff we use every day ingame.
  7. What ideas do you have for a TLC pass?

    Hmm, if they were going to do a tlc pass on our tames then I would personally like the following things (I might go a little beyond tlc here, fair warning): Stegos to have a better hitbox that stays on ramps. (let them sit on ramps overnight, most will know what I mean, normally the face ends up pointing down the wrong direction) Troodons to have a new taming method Dungbeetles passively make fertilizer from poop without the need to be on wander, they are bugged and die randomly/rarely when in a cage right now. Eels to be able to do some sort of combat when tamed Gigas and brontos saddles to be upgraded to do a Indiana jones style swing off of them if you hold a certain key when dismounting. Onycs that can be ridden and less of a screech for them Spider buff, the spiders sorta are a novelty thing right now. Ability to flip over turtles using tames such as a mammoth or a morrelatops New cry for the galli and better control for when its moving around Dillos, parasaurs, and other tames without kibble to have a generic kibble for taming them (some of us are perfectionists ) Dungbeetles to give their handler a buff that makes wildlife ignore the player cause they smell bad Oviraptors egg buff seperated from its wander Dodos defend other dodos that are attacked (anyone remember the early days when dodos attacked?) Onyc and phoenix able to land Saddle attachments for all tames, wouldnt mind putting blades on a parasaurs sides to make them useful in combat Better following ai for the oviraptors and dillos, its a nightmare right now, could atleast slow them down so they do not fly across the base. Ability to carry smaller water tames around the map out of water. Harvest ability for a diploducos Procoptodon that can become a boxing champion Tamed Baryonyx, pelagornis and otters able to eat meat... too much micromanagement with multiple food types. Smaller titanosaurs that we can actually keep in bases, Raid class dinos are last years news, not many care about them anymore... If it cant be a more realistic tame then at least remove them from the achievement requirement! Megalosaurus more useful during the day. more stamina for the ovis sheep Updated dossier for the argent to match its in game appearance... Tapejaras head crest to fold down when its not flying, for easier 3 high storage And Fix the baby rex bouncing if thats still a thing... OK that is my tlc wishlist right now
  8. Turret change discussion megathread

    This is just a guess, but maybe this could also be in preparation for adding the structures+ turrets? People think they might be overpowered, and since servers will have limited turrets now then these could be added for balancing.
  9. sequel ARK: Survival Evolved 2 ?

    I think it had to do with this article if I were to guess, not that players ever read whats in them. Just seeing the title anywhere online then words start to spread fast, doesn't matter if its relevant to the story posted or not. Just mentioning something like this gets everyone worked up. Tell one person a story, have that story travel person by person and you'll get a brand new story. - The mysteries of the internet at its best... http://www.pcgamer.com/ark-survival-evolved-dev-thinks-it-needs-to-have-a-sequel-someday/
  10. The quote below is taken from the wiki, tamed pets share the same timer with the wood structures. "4 days for thatch/small utility structures, 8 days days for wood, 12 days for stone, 16 days for metal, tek for 35 days." I'll also add with this, 5 days for greenhouse. These timers only apply mostly to official servers. The patch they did applies towards people claiming tames that expire. (before they would expire if no one was in range, if someone was in range they could be claimed and someone else could use them, then rest would delete themselves once that person left if they were not claimed) If your not seeing this happen on your personally owned pve server then change these settings to false in your GameUserSettings.ini if you want them. DisableDinoDecayPvE=true DisableStructureDecayPvE=true
  11. what is a most useless item in ark

    Slingshot... They nerfed it twice cause of how good it was VS other players ... Made it completely useless as a early game taming tool. Radio - Why? it doesn't even work like you would logically think it would... Compass, waste of time... Gun attachments... If you could use any scope with tranqs darts then I wouldn't be saying this for the attachments...
  12. How useful are the early game guns?

    After a few months in this game I stopped using the guns for combat vs non-boss wildlife, for me it was just a waste of materials to make the ammo for the weapons. Havnt used the early game guns since and its been years now.. Once they added scorched earth then I started using the flame arrows and loved them, two shots killed everything, 3-4 to kill a rex. I will take a pump-action shotgun or assault rifle into caves occasionally, but rarely use them. Little bit off topic... try the flamethrowers once, they are a joke and cant hit anything, try taking one into swamp cave, odds are you'll miss all the insects
  13. Pokemon mod official for switch

    From what I remember the pokemon mod was slapped with a dmca but it was dmca'd by another ark mod maker or a nintendo competitor, not the pokemon company... and not nintendo itself. The dmca was reversed. The monster hunter mod though got hit hard from a real dmca. Either way, nintendo would never allow a non-pc platform to have pokemon stuff on it where it sells its own products, pc can sorta get away from it cause games have non profit unofficial mods and they don't directly compete there. Once something starts competing in the same platform though then issues arise... Also a pokemon game could be coming to the switch too.. Here is a article from yesterday. https://www.gamespot.com/articles/nintendo-e3-2017-in-place-of-switchs-pokemon-stars/1100-6450891/
  14. Blocked Oblesks Cant do anything

    Honestly All the obelisks need to be redone on the island map, there is no room for more then one tribe to park by them, this should of been done long ago when they made us teleport to the bosses (before in early days it was just summoning the boss to us at obelisks, they didn't need parking room). It was slightly better when we could build by them like we could on legacy as dedicated players could create massive platforms for multiple tribes to park around the terminals. Now however its just a total mess of tames or in rarer cases people abusing/blocking them. I mean if red and green had all that water removed, and the ground leveled out between the pillars/terminal, then enclosed a little for safety like a natural enclosed sloped crater around it where people could park on the hillsides of crater, you could fit most of the bossfight ready tribes for the entire server at one obelisk...
  15. BUILDING IS BROKEN after patch 263

    Posted this on reddit a few days ago and it was the 2nd most popular ark post there for one solid day.. Top post was a naked guy sitting on a alligator...
