  1. Brick underwater indestructable

    Given explosives cannot fire underwater, is brick underwater indestructible?
  2. Just did various searches on google for best way to farm with a quetz. All the results are from early 2017 and seems quite a bit has changed with Quetz since then. Any alpha's out there know the best way to farm with a quetz?
  3. Steel Locker vs Steel Safebox

    Within prim+ our tribe built a Steel Safebox. It was pretty easy to build, but on the PS4 can be broken into easily with an obsidian pickaxe. Last night we unlocked the Steel Locker. This was harder to break and cannot be broken with an obsidian pickaxe - which is good. Anyone know how safe these Steel Lockers are? Or to ask it another way can only gunpowder/sticky bombs open them up and roughly how many would be needed?
  4. Steel Safebox easily broken on PS4?

    Playing on PS4 Prim+ official server (and loving it). Noticed last night that Steel Lockers exist (upgraded versions of Steel Safeboxes). I know steel safeboxes on the PS4 are easily broken into with Obsidian Pickaxes (basically rendering them near useless), but is that the same for Steel Lockers? Or are steel lockers a lot harder to break into?
  5. Giga got to non-land access hill?

    Thanks younevergetthis. Interesting that so many 'experienced' ark youtubers still go on about setting up a base where land dinos cant get up to, given they can be simply flown in.
  6. A tribe has just been attacked on our server by another tribe. The defending tribe were ontop of one of the hills in Ragnorak that has no land dino access. The height of the hill was about 1.5 times the height of a giga. When I went to watch the raid the giga had somehow made it ontop of the small mountain section, despite there being no land dino access. There were two quetzals also attacking. Can a giga stand on a quetzal platform and be lifted up? I cannot see any other way it could have gotten there.
  7. Base defense tips - pvp - primitive plus

    Tried building x plants and got 10 built over a couple of days... but they were wiped in one go (suspect it was a griffin). Any suggestions on how to build up from no x plants to a decent number without them getting wiped as you go?
  8. Primitive Plus PvP Base Defense tips

    Title hopefully says it all... but do any PvP experts have any base defense strategies?
  9. Best weapon for breaking reinforced doors?

    Yeah found out tonight that obsidian pickaxe is fairly powerful. Is that the most powerful weapon against reinforced doorways or maybe one of the two axes on offer?
  10. Brick gateways slightly too big

    After some further testing last night, it appears the Brick gateway on Prim+ is well and truly broken. Had major issues trying to place it... something that should be easy after 2000+ hours on ark... hope they fix it soon.
  11. Brick gateways slightly too big

    On regular ark, I always used to build a wooden or stone dino pen. I would build it 4 levels high with a roof. I would leave a space in one of the walls of size 2 wide, 4 high. I would then build a gateway (wooden or stone or metal) and it would always fit perfectly in the hole I left. I did the same on primitive plus last night with a brick doorway, but it wouldnt place. It keep saying the gateway was obstructed. In the end I have to place it on the floor in front of the opening, but that then leaves a hole above it. Anyone know how to get round this?
  12. I was tranq'ed last night by a raider and I couldnt see too clearly (cos I was unconscious) but it looked like he was using a pickaxe to break down my front door. Is a pick axe the best weapon for doing this? I would have though a pike or a sword would have been better?
  13. Base defense tips - pvp - primitive plus

    Hi there, New to primitive plus. I was planning on building a fully brick base since I see it is stronger than stone. But just realised there is no brick door, so am guessing there is no point in building brick vs stone. Is the best defense tactics on Prim Plus PvP in that case, just to stone up your base, multi-layer walls, unreachable by gigas, and lots of x plants? Is there any other tactic people employ?
  14. Less raiding on Primitive Plus but why?

    Joined primitive plus recently and noticed there is a lot less raiding than on normal mode. However, with barrels of gunpowder able to break stone relatively easily, I don't see why there is so much less raiding? Anyone know why?
  15. Been playing PvP survival evolved ark for 3 years now and felt like trying something different so moved to Primitive Plus last night. My theory is that with primitive plus there might be an truly unraidable base location. Is the following logic correct? Build in stone - this is the top tier material in prim+ which can only be taken out by balistas, giant crossbows and gigas - Is there anything else that can break stone walls in Prim+? Build away from the water (since a raft could have a balista, etc placed ontop of it) Build ontop of hills that cannot be reached by land based animals to protect from Giga and Titan. However, a quetz with balista on its saddle could still get you. Therefore, is the only truly unraidable location to build in caves (official or tight areas) where quetz and gigs cant fit. If you do this is there any other way of someone breaking into your base on prim+? Thanks, Charlie
