  1. thats half my point, they dont follow the rules anyways, and WC doesnt enforce them most of the time, so why give the false sense of security to begin with?
  2. There should not be rules against being immoral in-game. Ive been playing since the beginning, and it's always been a firm belief of mine that the fun is largely derived from our interaction with others. "is he being genuine? is he trying to rip me off?". Instances like being insided have ways of being defended against in-game as is, and anyone who gets insided just didnt use those. I say this as someone who has never insided somebody either. I feel like all of the rules limiting peoples moral behavior should be removed, especially when you take into consideration that they arent enforced anyways. I look at games like EVE:online, and they thrive just fine without limiting people from doing whatever they want so long as its not cheating. That in Ark would be awesome(because EVE:online is awfully boring) and how ark used to be, and was a ton of fun.
  3. My original idea, before seeing this posts, was to get a couple of people together to turn the conversion into a mod, that way it wouldnt have to be updated with every dev update like total conversions do. We wouldnt add anything(maybe down the line we could fork off a version that we add things too but at first I would just want a copy of Prim+ exactly how it is in a mod form). Ive messed around with the dev kit a few times so im not like a mod maker or anything but i have a couple friends that are and they would definitely teach us what we need to know to get this made. only hangup is I havent been able to get Ced or anyone to say if that would be allowed
  4. Me waiting to find out the fate of prim+:
  5. When do we get it, when crystal isles comes out or now?
  6. shouldve ran up and punched that arachnid in its mouth for the little bit of hp it had left.
  7. Would anyone but up to taking on the task of converting it to a mod with me? I'm talking a strict conversion, no additions or changes(maybe after its completed we could fork the mod into a seperate one that would have new stuff).
  8. "we believe we can eliminate meshing, an exploit that ruins the gaming experiences for many survivors across Official and Unofficial Networks." Negative, on unofficial we have attentive overwatch(admins) that keep it at bay
  9. Yall some crybabies, this looks like a great update.
  10. to the first guy, yes i made sure i had 250gb on an ssd just for ark. to the second guy, lol well yes and no. they could tell it was worth money but the dumb apes just had hoods with drawstrings pulled tight so they looked like kenny from south park(meaning i easily was like "wait i know who that is" lol) Ive found bits and pieces all over the internet, most of its old information and didnt work though.
  11. Ark on Mac crashes with mods Hey guys, so pc was stolen, and im on mac for a bit unfortunately(no need for the imac trashing replies, trust me i know lol). Everytime i try to download mods it kinda seems like it starts too, sits there for a few minutes then poops out and gives me an error log. Anyone know what i can do? I tried all the standard stuff(7k+ hours in ark), but this subpar alien OS has me stumped. for what its worth its an i7 with 24gb ram and a decent gpu.
  12. An amendment to the link I gave, ignore everything until step 2.
  13. 9 servers you say? Okay, heres some info from experience: Renting: -If you rent cheaper dedi servers you will get what you pay for, as in some wont allow you to change some things, some will only allow access to server through their custom UI, some will just be plain awful all around. -If you get more expensive one you usually get what you pay for...but if youre looking at putting up 9 maps...2 servers wont cut it unless it's like 2 of the most high end servers you can get, and that would be like 300-400 a month. Even these have their quirks and limits though, and its often an exercise of patience and the ratio of happiness to expenses doesnt pay out on your side. Questions: how many potential players per map are you looking to have at peak times? If its more than 5 per map at one time, than you will absolutely need more boxes or all your going to hear about is lag, until before long you hear nothing at all because eveyrone left. you could get away with 3 mid range boxes(servers) with 3 maps on each, I see that often. Once the pop gets high on those there is lag but its not unbearable and some of the most populated servers run 3 servers on a box. Ideally youd want 4 but thats spensive. lol "Boxes you say?" Yes, I say boxes because what I am getting at is if you want total control and ability to run your server unhindered and not at the whims of some kid renting you space on his box(or some company which can be just as bad), then you REALLY want to get your own blank server boxes and install the servers yourself on them. DONT use windows if you can help it, they arent as fast as linux(server side at least) "but I dont know linux" If you dont know linux thats perfectly fine. I didnt know linux when I ventured into this, and to a large degree I still dont know linux, I know what I need to know to install ark servers though because theres a very nice step by step guide I found. Its from 2015 but it can still be used on linux(http://www.kpheasey.com/2015/07/03/ark-survival-evolved-private-dedicated-server-setup-beginners-guide/) with some changes(he made a .bat file but It doesnt work as desired so you just follow the steps within the file and youre good). It is a bit more work but absolutely 100% worth it. Also, if you are thinking about taking this route feel free to add me on steam or discord(M. #8893) and I would be glad to help you out with it(for free, it's fun for me and I have the time)
  14. Ced(and I dont mean to call him out, hes doing great things with the community) DID say that Prim+ was initially made a Total Conversion for constest purposes as opposed to neccesity. It was a rather clever strategy(backed with legitimately great work)... Now, I do NOT know and wont pretend to know but I will guess that everything from Prim+ asset-wise, resource changes, all changes... could be placed into a mod and work not only well, but much better in that it wouldnt need to keep up its own seperate timeline of development AND would be much more versatile, much faster loading, etc. Anyone that knows otherwise feel free to correct me. Currently(and sadly), Nobody on unofficial will play the mode because its loadtime from being a TC. If it were just a mod like everything else then it would have a life on there as well, where admins can pick and choose which of the new dinos or items or engrams stay or go, its no longer the burden for the developer to bear alone there(except on official, but if they put up new PRIM+ servers with it being a mod instead of a TC and they just spent a couple hours refining their .ini settings itll be out the door with a bang, better than its ever been across the board-drops would work, new dinos would be there except for selected ones that arent appropriate like extinctions velos, manas, meks, etc.) That would be some massive content/playabillity/value added, a "revamp" of this loved mode for all systems, and all with relatively less extensive work than itd take doing that from the ground up(since its already been done, just has to be ported, theoretically). So everybody wins, yeah?
  15. Ive got a trove of good news for you my friend lol 1)those glass walls with the quadrants are the same walls without them, you can select the models(1 side, 2 side, corner, 3 sides), and the transparency of each wall, so you can make only vertical lines of metal, or no lines, or do nothing and its quadrants. 2)building underwater. Outside of primitive, you can live in vacuum chambers all day, quite effective when used right. In primitive, Dont forget about the diplocaulus.(little newt guy that you ride and he gives you oxygen). That with a chowder will make staying underwater a while doable, especially with a small fleet of diplos following and a flank of sharks or something to protect you while youre below. Now, you cant live underwater like this, but you can absolutely keep a relatively hard to raid base down there, with a safe storage box for your diplos near, or if youre on island and snag one of the little caves, thats ideal perhaps) 3)Is there not a water reservoir in primitive+? its been a minute since ive been on but that sounds like what you are looking for. You COULD also tame some morellotops(ragnarok and scorched earth maps), and those guys can hold water for you like mobile tanks.
