  1. You do realize the model in skin form for the Bronto is not the proper size for the Brachio right? I was speaking in terms of if the thing was made into its own blueprint. It is very easy to change the scale/size in the Dev Kit to match the actual size it should be so I would like to think they would do so if they did add it. Hence why my argument makes sense.
  2. Coloring it does not work along with all the other issues stated. Also,even when it is working properly the hovering sound is kinda obnoxious and annoying. Would be nice if they could lower the tone and make it less bubbly.
  3. I have the same issue along with reports from my server mates that the Reaper Queens are also not visible. I have tried adding code to fix the issue myself but nothing works. Only thing I can do is use NPC replacements. The fire wyvern spawner is broken though because nothing will spawn in the entry.
  4. The current issues I am having on PS4 listed below: When I equip it and leave it alone it works ok but when I want to remove it the sounds of my game are gone and all I hear is the annoying sound of the HLNA still running. The sound is like a fish tank bubbler using a transformer voice changer and its all I end up hearing. I have to restart the game to get rid of it. The ability to color HLNA does not work at all. I can see it operate properly for myself but when I see other players using it the HLNA is on the ground laying flat looking like one of the UFOs from the movie Batteries Not Included. Also,anyone having the issue of the HLNA appearing if you do have skins enabled than try what I did. I had to die and respawn to get it similar to any of the other skins earned or bought.
  5. Ummm,there are large numbers of PVE role players and social/casuals as well. And to be fair the game was intended to reach many demographics not just one. That is what makes Ark so great to be honest. It is approachable to all kinds of players.
  6. For me it would be about healing. Perhaps if they buff the healing effect a bit to make up the difference I would be ok with it. Also,if a tribe has multiple owls and this cooldown effects all owls with the one dino than that is also a negative result. Console PVE gets hurt the most with these nerfs,they do not have access to mods to counter them. I wish they would just add server ini so that they could just make the changes server side. It would than be good for both PVE and PVP because those who run servers could adjust it themselves...they do with many other things.
  7. Actually the Tek Tape Saddle is probably the go to for doing element veins on Extinction so the 30% reduction may have an effect on that. Someone already mentioned the 10 second cooldown on Owls Freeze,I wonder if this has an effect on multiple owls or just the one that uses it before another? If it works for multiple than I think even for PVP its a nerf that hurts the value of the Owl. I think if they are going to add a cooldown to this than the healing should be buffed some along with the time frozen. The rest seems legit to me.
  8. Nothing else really needed to be explained here. It would be real nice to have for RP and just flat out more appeal. We all know its possible after seeing Atlas. Its not like I would be asking for a revamp. I would just like a few more sliders for body parts/sections along with face skins/models to chose from. Also maybe some more hair styles and facial hair options...even if they were unlocked by notes still. One request though is that once unlocked it would be nice if they appeared in the create a character system.

    I think they have tried to the extent of what they can do with plants. It would be rather difficult to make plant creatures look and work well. I think they could do them but they would basically be static creatures that stay in one place and also not really fit in this topic of small creatures.
  10. If its something for a project than I would not understand why it would be on a forum. If its a project one is working on than yeah map it and maybe link it but if its suppose to be a mere suggestion I think things need to be toned down. I am a small mod author and posting all of this just seems to walk its own plank. An even better suggestion is to go download the Dev Kit and take on the project ones self. In all fairness,you can not expect them to read a map what seems like an entirely new game on its own. Also other people will have similar ideas with smaller posts that you can now upvote. Having a large scale thread is kinda becoming of a glory hog....no offense.

    Its challenges like that that make it more interesting though. I mean I get it if you are the type that likes to just play creatively or RP. I know in RP those things can be annoying at times but it makes for a good twist if you are doing it for content. I did however make an edit before you responded with the Chameleon anti theft and bug ability. These annoyances would be easier to manage if we had something like that with them abilities.
  12. I come with an idea and to see ideas to possibly up vote but all I see is drama. I get it that you lost all of your ideas. I lost many of my posts as well. Take this as a lesson to not use a forum for stuff if it has value to you. Beside the fact people can take your ideas for themselves if that matters to you. I would suggest perhaps making a Discord server rather than taking on a project in a forum. Either way,make a back up document.
  13. While I agree we need more dinos,I do not agree with making these new content. The skins are good enough for these I think. Sure they might be a tad different in size but they will only bring in the same dynamics as other dinos we already have. Not to mention,larger dinos like the Brachio would cause lots of lag. Not everyone on the planet has new and up to date gaming rigs and the highest speed internet to handle that. Plus consoles are in the mix now and have much more limitations...many console players would be upset if content was to get cut. At first I wanted this same thing because I was also disappointed but after thinking about it I think it makes sense the way they went with it.
  14. This will not change anything sadly. This stuff is all handled server side already by radius settings of structures. If this was implemented properly it would limit build sizes dramatically. The only true way to get rid of the spam and for it to be proper is to have actual official admins to take care of over use of pillar claiming. It has been spilling over into the RP world as of late too and its kinda sad because it looks like crap and is not very immersive and fun to look at.
  15. While that could be a temporary fix,its not a good one. Especially to breeders that are active and doing this for colors and stuff on purpose. I agree that it could be an issue so server side options to enable or disable this could be good. Or as suggested a kill all unclaimed option could be a savior to get rid of unwanted unclaimed. It would especially be good for RP servers.
