  1. Can we please have an event where we get purple 31 on more than just one color zone? =\ Purple would have been a fine winter wonderland color. I'm excited about the chibis though.
  2. My PVE server never went down. I'm sitting in a pod waiting for the client to kick me out so I can patch. XD
  3. I've logged on to find a giga in my base. It's the same as dodorex. I know, I've been there to the orig dodorex, as well. I keep most of my stuff podded, GMS restored the rest. Why play a survival game to sit cosy in your house? How boring. Should you have to worry about being griefed? No. Should I worry about being jumped on the street? No. Do I know martial arts, just in the off chance it happens? Yeah. Because I like to hope for the best and plan for the worst. People are going to be people, no matter what the devs do. You do you though. You do you. I plan on enjoying
  4. My base is literally right outside of bloodhollows. I always built my ext like a PVP base, because extinction is the closest we get to PVP. It's better than PVP--at least wild dinos or kited dinos don't usually hop out of the mesh. Have I had people kite corrupted to my base? Yes, but they didn't go far, because I was prepared. On Ab I basically live in the blue/red zone, right on the edge. My base is lit and turreted like a fiend to protect from nameless and reaper kings and queens. I've had stuff spawn in my base before. You plan for it. Most of you guys are used to being all co
  5. Ever played extinction? Same thing, different tune. If you know how to combat corrupted on extinction, dodorex is no different. Do you really think the modern gigas won't be able to chew dodorex and spit him out? Plus ORP. What is PVE without the environment?
  6. During the Extra Life event they will probably show off a lot of sneak peeks.
  7. I mean, I've had a giga spawn in my base before. The GM's are awesome and do what they can. Did it suck? Yeah Was it awful to wake up to first thing in the morning when I logged in? Yeah. Buuuut, this is Player vs Environment. One should never be too relaxed in a survival game. If you're not a little afraid of the game, where's the fun? And before you ask, I lost a lot of event dinos that the GM's are unable to replace do to the limitations of what they can do, so yeah it did really suck a bit, but the community on my server was awesome and gave me babies to replace what
  8. TY For the info. I'll have to check out the sunken world. I know my tribemates would love it.
  9. Because they're listening. A very large amount of people wanted an ocean map and have wanted one for a long time. Now we might actually finally be getting one. This is pretty exciting. (And even if we don't, there's always the possibility the devs might make Tiamat an official mod some day.)
  10. Yeah, I live and die by the Ark Smartbreeder. Truly an amazing program and I all the people who continue to support it and make it work, including the people who made a new .json for deinonychuses.
  11. You're not going blind. They didn't add the numbers specifically to make things ambiguous. From the posts I read where people were impacted, it was something like 100 small dinos cumulative of any small dino type. So if you have 30 jerboa and 30 lightpets and 30 otters and 10 rollrats, you're at 100ish, and at risk for enforcement. And I get WHY they do it, but we small breeders want things to be equal between us and the large breeders. (Trust me, I'm a believer in cryopods. They saved PVE servers. But what's good for the goose is good for the gander, and to me it's easier to unpod 500 g
  12. 1) If they have that many event jerboa, they're breeding. 2) The limit for "small easy tames" is somewhere in the region of 100 small tames out per tribe, based off the reports of people who did get their stuff killed. 50 is way under that limit. 3)As a lightpet breeder myself, I'm already paranoid enough that somebody is going to report my females out because they are pregnant, let alone the full 100. (Please note that I have fridges and fridges and fridges of shinehorns and featherlights and glowtails and otters but I only have a very small amount out at a time because I don't want
  13. I mean, technically speaking, ARK (and many, if not most) large video games and phone games essentially are skinner boxes designed to convince our still very animal brains into logical fallacies that convince us to continue investing more time into things, and are in general pretty addictive. Like, how many people in PVP still play because they have so much time invested already? Or how many PVE players feed their bases for months after they stopped really playing because the thought of losing all that work that they spent real life hours achieving? It's sunk-cost fallacy exploited
  14. So I'm spoiled. I use my PC as my main work device, and I use a lot of intensive 2d and 3d rendering programs with very large file sizes and computer demands. I have 3 monitors, a tablet, and a very powerful rig, including a 2080 RTX, 64GB ram, and a solid processor. I still get graphical lag when somebody plants their base within render of mine. I still get graphical lag because the introduction of triangle structures (a neat thing) encourages many many tiny components, and they did not give us large ceilings/foundations to compensate, or a way to link many small structures into contiguous
  15. I do really really wish they'd at least give us a font pack that had all the characters from their more popular non english languages. Chinese, Japanese, Cyrillic, and Arabic. At least then I wouldn't have to use a font pack that doesn't format correctly keeping me from seeing certain things, and at least I could conveniently use google translate.
  16. He has a hard time landing on rhinos. He seems to land the easiest on medium sized things. (If you notice, he seems to land a lot more when Megapithicus and all his adds are running around; in short he seems to land on the monkeys easily.) Note: he WILL occasionally land on a rhino, he just seems to have a harder time than say a rex or a yuty. Often he'll come down, almost land, and then instantly fly back up. Basically, if a rhino body gets close to being underneath his body, the AI thinks it is trying to be pinned down, and flies away. Note: he WILL occasionally land on a rhino, he just
  17. So, whichever boss you kill last will instantly disappear on death. Usually (but not always) this is Manticore, which is why if you shoot him in the air, you don't get the element. (Must be killed by a dino with gather enabled to get the element to transfer.)
  18. You only get 22 minutes even on alpha. You get more time on the Rag arena with 2 bosses than you do in the Valguero arena with 3 bosses. Let me let that sink in to the Devs. This is ridiculous. He gets bugged in the air where he just doesn't even seem to be targeting anything. I have a tribe of 3 people, and even with max damage shotguns and 12 minutes on the clock to kill him, we can't, because he won't land. and 3 people just can't pump him full of enough ammo. This means that even with hyper leveled boss rexes, it's a hard fight with a tight timer for any tribe less than 4, bec
  19. Except that Extinction dinos are just the Flavor of the Month dinos to hate on. The cries for nerfs never stop. It almost doesn't matter what Genesis gives on or how crappy, there will be cries for nerfs. Once they nerf those, it'll be Gigas, then Boss Rexes, then Yutys, etc etc etc etc etc. Remember, though, you are the minority. To use your own logic, they should bend over backwards to placate the PVE community, as we are the larger community and they can fleece the most money out of us, whereas if they make your community happy and anger us, they will get less money as there are fewer
  20. I hope you're happy. You made me learn how to search twitter. This was not a thing I needed to know.
  21. This is not my statistic. This was a dev statistic. This is something Ced told us. I do not presume to think that Ced does not know what he is talking about.
