  1. Heck of a lot faster to craft one than charge one.
  2. Many of the people bogging the servers with 1k jerboas will never get a whiff of tek tier. Pods are fine as-is.
  3. Never been a fan of kibble in either system. Couldn't justify the effort vs. reward, and I almost exclusively tame carnivores so mutton works well enough. I do make superior kibble now but just for trade. That said, I wouldn't be playing still if not for the classic fliers mod, so hopefully you're able to find a way to get your preferred method back.
  4. I'd like to see things fixed that have existed forever and affects 100% of the playerbase, instead of stuff that only affects a portion of it. WHY do the command wheel options move position depending on how you're facing the dino? WHY do we always jump off the right side of the dino (horse riders know what I'm talking about)? WHY does light from a forge/grill penetrate solid metal/stone walls? WHY can you not drop all spoiled meat straight out of a container with the drop all button? If I had to pick between fixing meshing or fixing those 4 things, I'd take the latter in a heartbeat.
  5. They can take out a specific type of dino every time you get wiped, and someday you'll get wiped by a lystro army. We want your stuff, and we're going to figure out how to get it one way or the other.
  6. Once you fast traveled out of the area, they would de-render and lose aggro.
  7. Wolves/raptors/sabers/whatever set to follow a daed set to passive and passive heal. Collect the meat from the pack and give it to the daed and the trough. No replacing bullets, and you're leveling up creatures that can help you defend your base later. You'll also get a steady supply of other resources depending on what's spawning. I set up a pack near the swamp for a few days to collect boa venom and sarco skin. I build overhead cover for my base defense packs, very hard to snipe them if they aren't out chasing something.
  8. Fair enough. Be honest though, would the moving of that line really be more of a negative experience than what you're dealing with? You want to have fun, right? My admins aren't trying to meet a budget or run out the clock to go home to their family. They want to provide a fun experience and are more than willing to sacrifice their own time and money to do so (mine takes donations but no way does that cover all of the servers in the cluster). The worst problem with them I've had in the last 5-6 months was a 4 hour delay in getting a mod upgraded one time, and that was just because they weren't playing and didn't know. Once I sent them a Steam message, it was fixed in 10 minutes. Granted we still deal with the goofy mechanics like the troughs, but it's just a virtual raptor you swat away and forget about. Definitely take a break if needed, but for the hours you have in, I suspect you might be willing to give it another shot at some point.
  9. You know the answer, you just haven't embraced it yet. Go unofficial when you come back. I wouldn't even know about 75% of the problems with Ark if I didn't read Official players posts complaining about them.
  10. I fondly remember my rants from the first 2-3 times I quit lol Ark is rough, I get it. Between the dinos, the other players, the devs, and the people designing all the other hardware/software we use, the odds are stacked against us. But when you go play something else and can't do all the stuff you could do in Ark, you start to miss it like that old girlfriend who drove you crazy. Don't bother uninstalling, it'll just slow you down when you decide to come back.
  11. Tried to tame a titanosaur with a stolen Mek, but I think I need the cannon attachment thing. Sword didn't seem to be doing much. Culled some more newborn wolf cubs. Down to the last attempted combo of stats and color, and RNG has not been on my side. Once I get the final line going, I can upgrade the guard dogs at all of my bases. Just made a bunch of mannequins and am currently going through my stockpile of flak armor from my gachas. I'm going to pay homage to the terra cotta soldiers.
  12. I fondly remember the first 2-3 times I quit this game.
  13. I should start up my sabers again. Most of my line was killed in a forest titan attack and the last remaining member of my line has been wandering around in one of the caves for the last two months (no death notice in log so I assume it's still alive somewhere lol)
  14. Direwolf line is doing OK, but slow because of the... infant mortality rate (I have a short attention span). Argy line is doing awesome. Best stats on the server, the green/black and purple/black lines are a few months old but just added a red/black hen this week. I keep breeding boss rexes despite having 2 full crews and rarely running bosses. I stole some rexes from someone who had put a ridiculous amount of time into their stats so I feel obligated to keep the breeders working. I quit breeding gigas, I have some good genetics but there's just no need for more when I already have 6-7 in stasis.
  15. Or making everyone else wait 30 minutes while someone cryopods all their stupid jerboa babies.
  16. All of my stuff goes from near-impossible to see to near-impossible to miss.
  17. Sorry, I vote against the extension. The sooner I get my green trees back, the better.
  18. Next dino I hatch is getting named Balls of Lightning. lol or is that Balls of Lighting?
  19. Enable/Disable Breeding Issue Certain dinos are reverting back to breeding enabled when I'm logged out. Not a big deal with the egg-layers since I have hatcheries, but it's seriously slowing down the direwolf line (and I'm tired of walking into the building to a bunch of dead pups in the colors I wanted). Testing last night ruled out both latency when disabling (thought maybe I was rubberbanding) and user error (I checked a breeding-disabled argy pair every hour last night, log in today to find they're enabled again). Primarily affecting dinos which have their breeding status changed frequently. Suggestions?
  20. Ah, I get it now. I forgot PvE was a thing for a minute.
  21. Tame them, then bury your tames. Then you can also breed them and improve their health and melee. No one who spawns stuff in needs a safe base anyway. If you're going to cheat, just spawn in whatever got stolen from you.
  22. Logged on, bred new black/orange argy with my line, culled the baby. Watched Netflix all night, hopping over to Ark every 15 minutes to run in a circle and open a door to keep from being booted for inactivity. Ran a few loads of advanced bullets before bed. Not sure why, my server is pretty much deserted.
  23. I frequently solo alpha Brood with only a half-squad of rexes and no losses, but I stole very good rexes so results may vary.
  24. Sounds incredibly frustrating. I'm so glad I've never had to deal with any kind of pillar BS. Actually, I take that back: Once I said "Admin, come remove this pillar" and he said "This one?" and I said "No, that one." and he removed it.
