      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. I wonder at what moment Wildcard would run out of people to handle the game on 5 platforms considering how many things they want to do at the same time. This can only end up with massive crunch and disaster if they don't expand the studio and CS. That aside, WC cannot release this buggy mess as it is now on Switch, they would have to start fixing bugs, ALL of them, and further optimse the game, for real this time.
  2. ARK Survival Evolved for Mobile!

    ARK and F2P mobile model? Owing to the fact how anticonsumer mobile F2P games usually are, I don't think players would like this game. Any premium paid boost packs that affect PVP directly or indirectly makes the game Pay2Win.
  3. SOTF is dead. Development of that game was put on hold long time ago indefinitely.
  4. Well done #badart4badark. It was high time to call WC out and crticise their bad priorties that involved stuffing the game with more redundant content rather than QoL changes and fixes. It is sad community was forced to spam reddit with bad art to make Wildcard open its eyes and prove how buggy this game is. It's just showed WC could not care less bugs that are extremely inconvienient for playerbase that were here for years. Weekly bug fixes should have been here since the premiere to begin with. I highly doubt WC will be posting those weekely bug fixes patches longer than a month. They will abandon this commitment quickly due to 3rd DLC. I hope I'll be wrong in this matter, but I don't expect miracles. By the way what happened to famous Kibble Tree Rework? Owing to the fact we haven't heard nothing about it for months might suggest the idea was scrapped.
  5. I thought you assumed I quitted due to visual aspects of creautres, therefore I gave you my true reasons. This is why I mentioned them. I agree let's not move to offtopic areas. As for raptor design I said what I had to say about it. One thing that I'm curious about is the pounce animation and what creatures raptor would be able to pin down exactly.
  6. Fantasy looking dinosaurs didn't make me quit the game. The answear is more complicated than that. Main reason was the game does not respect my time and other things such as terrible server and game performance, lackluster gameplay mechanics, the most primitive AI I've ever seen. After 0,5 year from premiere they started working on QoL updates, that should have taken place during EA tbh. There is a chance after those updates game would be polished enough to give it a shot again. However, unless devs adress one problem "if you tamed, built, bred what you wanted, the game becomes really stale and boring", I won't bother. Mods only delay that problem.
  7. In dinosaur case, they do care vide feathered dinosaurs. However, I'm not a player who would scream and protest with a torch in hand, because modeller decided to make a fantasy looking creature. Modellers can still make fantasy looking creature without sacrificing accurate anatomy too much. I prefer a balance between those two things.
  8. I also dislike how fantasy looking those dinosaurs are to the point I question modellers' basic knownledge of anatomy. You can create fantasy looking creatures and keep their anatomy more or less accurate (i.e any wyverns in films or games), but it's not the case here and it never will. Regarding the raptor. The new raptor's arm feathers looks out of place completely. They don't fit this kind of forearm shape and posture, and they're too big. Unless walking and running animation is changed, I guarantee they will clip through raptor's tights more than old feathers. Raptors arms and paws should have a structure of a wing, only then any kind of feathers would look good there. Ear holes are way too big and they look quite ridiculous. Nostrils could be scaled down slightly. Tail's feathers looks odd. They seem to have low quality feathers. If WC wants to have feathers there, I suggest to do something similar that Primal Carnage Exctinction's feathered novaraptors have on their tails. On the other hand vertical feathers don't make sense, because they would have made body balance harder to achieve for running raptor. Feathers lack any kind of transition between scaly and feahtered region therefore it looks like they were slapped on the raptor and glued. It's nice to see they are working on things they should have done during the Early Access finally. Too bad, instead on working such QoL updates improving the game overall during that time, they were waisting time and rescources on redundant features and dinosaurs. Owing to the fact another DLC is on the horizon, I'm more than sure they will stop working on QoL updates pretty soon and then they will focus on DLC entirely. I hope I'd be wrong and the game would be improved to the point I may consider playing it again.
  9. Community Crunch 119 & Raptor TLC!

    The new raptor's arm feathers looks out of place completely. They don't fit this kind of forearm shape and posture, and they're too big. Unless walking and running animation is changed, I guarantee they will clip through raptor's tights more than old feathers. You have to scale down ear holes significantly, because they look quite ridiculous. Nostrils are too big slightly Tail's feathers looks odd. They seem to have low quality feathers. If you want to have feathers there, I suggest to do something similar that Primal Carnage Exctinction's feathered novaraptors have on their tails. I like more musceled legs, scale sculpting, better body proportions and eyes. I hope new eyes will not go out of their sockets this time...
  10. Why did sotf die?

    In my opinion SOTF was just released too soon, owing to the fact the main game, ARK, was still in deep alpha. Instead of using money from EA to finish ARK, they wasted it on side project that didn't not improve the main game at all and tournaments. It was quite unwise considering the limited staff they had at that time (and it's still like that). Plus: Terrible optimisation, therefore very few people could enjoy it with reasonable framerate. If you didn't want to have bad time, you were forced to lower graphical settings as low as possible. Unstable servers, rubberbending. Matches were too long. In order to win the match you had to know quite a lot about the game compering to PUBG for example. Lack of content. After playing PUBG I can list another disadvantage, the final zone was constant thus fights at the end were really boring once remaining teams were on the platform. Lack of developer support and that was the final nail in the coffin for SOTF.
  11. @Jatheish By the way, what is the status of Kibble Overhaul? I think it's really needed and except for announcement you're going to do it, there is no details about it.
  12. By not showing the name of player who killed you with equipped silencer you do hackers a favour. It will be more difficult for normal player to report a cheater who used silencer. Nice to see Spino recieved proper sculpting this time. You ought to remodel a raptor, because its eyes go out of its eye sockets and they move too randomly, tail is too short, feathers looks like spikes and arm ones clip through model, running and walking animation aren't synchronised with distance it's being covered by one step.
  13. I've tried to give ARK chance with modded server on Ragnarok and it failed to keep me interested in the game, because it only delayed issues that made me uninstall ARK in the end. In short this game is vast as an ocean, but deep as a puddle. There are a few things that made me uninstall this game: Entire game was built on the same mechanic, "spend X time to do anything", therefore game became extremely grindy and it doesn't respect your time, because you can lose a few hours of your work within seconds or minutes. Keep in mind I didn't buy ARK to be forced to play unofficial servers to solve this problem. Game is extremy grindy to create illusion of offering a lot of content and keep you in game as long as possible before you realise what you just created doesn't have significant impact on the game whatsoever (PVE). ARK offers very few interesting mechanics that don't involve staring at something for a long period of time. ARK's AI is the most primitive one I've ever seen in sandbox computer games and it kills my suspense of disbelief when I see dinosaurs trying to walk through rocks or walls. Lack of general polish in game's mechanics Terrible optimisation and server tickrates. Lackluster communication of WC and its project management. The fact that WC decided to not spend time on QoL improvments during Early Access (Dino TLC caliber of QoL patches), but stuffed the game with even more redundant game mechanics or dinosaurs that people got bored of them after 10 minutes (toilets, camera for example) The game is so bloated with mechanics, thousands of dinosaurs that current the most powerful hardware struggles to run it. WC didn't keep in mind hardware limitation during ARK's development. Lastly, when you tamed, built, bred what you wanted the game has nothing more to offer except for raiding a dungeon once or twice. In my opinion ARK is an indie game that got too much attention and had a huge potential that could have been used much better. Jack of all trades and master of none. Unless significant QoL patches and AI overhaul took place, I would not come back to ARK.
  14. Dino TLC: Feedback! Suggestions?

    Add sleeping to all land and flying animals. Sleep for certain amount of time would grant siginicant stat/exp timwd earning buff. Ability to pet your animals would be welcomed.
  15. Spinosaurs needs resculpting, new normal maps and colour textures. Why? Because it is covered by the same scale patter over entire body currently and whoever did that model for WC did very lazy job. Giga needs resculpting as well, because its tongue, teeth, inside of the jaws and talons are covered by the same scale pattern. Quetzal left or right ankle is twisted when it stands on the ground and has to be fixed. Raptor's feathers clip through thights while it is walking and in my opinion those feathers must be gone, because they're simply ugly. If you wanted feathers on a raptor, you should remove old ones and make new ones. You have redo eyes, eye sockets and animations for eyes. Eyes currently move in completely random way and they do go out of their eye sockets. The tail of raptor should be longer. Current animations of walking and running are not synchronised with the distance raptor covers in 1 step. Sigh... Were you not able to make better mechanic up than "making hostiles poop in their pants" for T-rex? For example, roar reducing enemies' (put name of enemies' stats here) by X%. I wouldn't mind stun lock on movement without any poop involved. It's not funny.
