      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

      TLC Update - Ragnarok 'Puzzle' Cave.   03/20/18

        In our most recent Ragnarok Update, the puzzle cave was revised so that it would no longer allow survivors to build within it. Due to this change, player structures found in this location were removed and some dinos became stuck. We will not be rolling back our servers at this time. We would like to keep rollbacks limited to major service-wide disruptions going forward due to complications caused by CrossARK and Tribes (part of being a multi-server persistent open-world survival game). Later today, we'll be rolling a server update which will allow survivors to build in this area for an additional week so that players can move their creatures via a transmitter or teleporter. After the 27th of March, this will no longer be possible so please use this time to remove your creatures swiftly. Console players, please use this time to move out any creatures or structures you have in this cave because once the update hits, you'll no longer be able to do so! Thank you for your patience and ongoing support, survivors!

  1. So will this coming update address the difficulty and sometimes impossibility of harvesting certain nodes with an anky? I see a couple notes that may relate to this, but not directly mentioning this issue specifically.
  2. Anky/RollRat Not Harvesting in BioLum

    The reeds are probably blocking you in the same way non harvestable rubble piles are blocking nodes too, so that doesn't surprise me. I really hope for a fix for this soon!
  3. bad ping

    I have noticed really bad ping the last few days as well. I get a lot of random disconnects, especially when I am fighting stuff (obviously a bad situation). Also, when I log back in, everything loads up much slower than normally. My character is naked for a minute, then my armor and equipment appear. Once I pick up my bulbdog and press E to remount my drake, I am stuck in place for several minutes, but can still attack with the drake and manage its inventory. Other people on my server have mentioned the same exact things happening to them too.
  4. Several Bugs I have Noticed in Aberration

    About painting the wingsuit, if you paint it before you attach it to your chest piece, you can color the metal rods. This doesn't fix the colors changing your chest piece though, but if you get creative, you might be able to find a configuration you like.
  5. Glider Suit + Tek Armor (Rad Resistant)?

    If you get all the unlocks and can craft a tek suit, you deserve to be able to use it. Powering a tek suit is SIGNIFICANTLY more expensive than powering a flyer. Personally, I am fine with the way it is right now, but wouldn't mind seeing the tek suit be able to endure radiation later down the road. Side note, you can go into the rad zones with a tek suit and a lamprey on you. You don't get a lot of time but long enough to jump down maybe grab an egg and gtfo.
  6. Ragnarok Map with Aberration

    Sure, make the map even more unbalanced and OP than it already is and shoot another DLC in the foot. Great idea.
  7. Anky/RollRat Not Harvesting in BioLum

    Bump!! Still having this issue with trees and rocks. I am positive that it is the rubble piles blocking dino harvesting as it is always the nodes sitting on them that have issues.
  8. Rock Drake Controls

    I think its a desync issue when servers are high pop (like when flyers would rubber band at high speeds), which most will be for a good while. From videos and steams I saw of people on low pop private servers, it appears to function much better. I just got my first drake and I am wondering if it is even safe to go get more eggs with it instead of doing it the long and hard way.
  9. Rock Drake eggs impossible to hatch

    Don't forget that acs can be placed partially inside eachother. Squish them together as closely as possible so you dont need to make so many. My base is in the west part of biolum, and I use 22 acs (still probably more than necessary). They just sit in a square cluster on a ceiling, and I incubate the eggs on a ceiling over top of the acs without a problem.
  10. Reaper King mutations

    Inbreeding has zero effect on getting new mutations
  11. Anky/RollRat Not Harvesting in BioLum

    This helps a lot! Thank you so much! However I find that those decorative scattered rocks on the ground are also obstructing my anky from harvesting, and unfortunately are not of the kind that can be cleaned up But this does still help me tremendously, thanks again
  12. Wild Dino grab on PVE Aberration

    So you are cool with people throwing aggressive creatures into your pen?
  13. Please, convince me that Aberration is worth my time.

    You are too concerned with the "obvious progression" rather than getting creative to progress with less. I set up a small farming base in mushroom forest to keep a doed and roll rat, to save up parts to move directly into blue. I didnt even get a spino until after I was moved into blue. Most of the time I still use ravager for zipline transit, spino i use mostly for farming poly and diving into the rad zone for gems. I still keep the mushroom forest base for a safe haven and to store a few tames to be useful up there. Blue zone is not nearly as scary as people make it out to be, but you do want to carry a charge pet at all times. Ziplines will become your best friend once you realize the value in them (meaning the ability to get around without first having a strong fighter like spino or megalosaurus) The reason aberration is so good, is because it pushes you to think outside the trendy meta of: tame dodos, tame ptera, tame argy, tame scorps, tame rex, tame quetz. There is a huge variety of ways to progress through aberration effectively without having to follow a linear path. The only real bottleneck is not being able to go into rad zones without a hazard suit, which you will find is not as troublesome to get as it may seem at first. I think the reason you are having trouble "getting into it" is because aberration strays far from the usual progression that it may at first seem overly complicated or difficult to achieve anything, but the reality is that it promotes the use of unused mechanics and thinking that got beat out by flyers and routing farming strats. I think once you wrap your head around that, you will have much more fun on aberration.
  14. hahaha fair enough Maybe you could add a new motto, "Spare no expense!" haha
  15. So is Aberration fun?

    Aberration is excellent. I am loving everything about it. The new mechanics feel really solid where I would have expected more issues. The no flyer thing is also excellent, it brings that sense of danger to the table that the base game lacks due to rushing a ptera tame being so easy. I would really love to see more of this style in future DLCs. The map is absolutely gorgeous and well thought out. It has instantly became my 2nd favorite (the island always has #1 spot for nostalgia and its natural/primitive charm) The music is excellent, Gareth doing an incredible job as always, and always beautifully tying in the original ark theme music with a new spin/style. Overall, this is a fantastic DLC and well worth the money. Anyone who feels Ark got stale for them, will surely find Aberration to be a very fresh experience, while still being true to that good ol ark "feel". Huge kudos to WC for this one, it went beyond my expectations and everyone I talk to seems to be loving it as well ❤
