  1. Hi! Thanks for putting our screenshot in the crunch. Please credit Golden Drop with that though, because he's the member of my team who made it. I only shared it for the public, with his permission Thanks!
  2. Bugs like this are still not fixed. It's a shame to see the number of players that have taken the torch from me and still not gotten responses (I tried to spread awareness of this bug years ago). Thus, I'm making a video on this specific issue and will be trying to get it addressed as much as possible! #FixBossiers
  3. That could be a fantastic idea, being able to cut the horns for a hefty 100 keratin or something, so it could be similar to the Ovis' renewable resource. Either that, or I was thinking that the male Myos could have larger horns than the females.
  4. Thanks so much for the thoughtful feedback! I'll add a taming section to the page soon
  5. That sounds like a neat idea! I think having it be a beneficial companion to survivors in their taming and resource gathering adventures is what this thing is all about.
  6. Here's a picture illustrating how the resources could be clumped into a smaller number of 'parasaur-type detection rings' as opposed to having each individual resource show a ring.
  7. Thanks for voicing your concerns! You are misunderstanding exactly what it does, and the way that it does it. The Myotragus would have a 'set' number of resources that it is capable of sensing, per creature. For example, one Myotragus may only be able to sense Metal, Obsidian, Green Gems, Blue Gems, and Fungal Wood, While another Myotragus may only be able to sense Crystal, Red Gems, Silica Pearls, Black Pearls, and Sap. Secondly, this radar alert could be intelligent enough to only light up an 'area' for the client, not just every single node in that area. Lastly, as far as creatures go -- it would also only have a set number of creatures, and could ONLY track Wild ones. For example one Myotragus could be capable of sensing: Parasaurs, Direwolves, Castoroides, Pachys, and Trikes, while another could only sense: Rexes, Arthropleura, Mantis, Giganotosaurus, and Dodos. Because it is useful as a PvE tame, in scouting out wild creatures of these types to tame, I can't imagine it breaking server performance. It just simply wouldn't be used in PvP to sense tames, though I'm not completely closed off to that idea.
  8. Introduction! Hey all, Welcome to my creature submission for Fjordur! You can read what I wrote below for the full Dossier text, along with some extra information, and a viewable Dossier that I myself along with two artists created! Credit largely goes to them Myotragus Dossier Text Wild On the surface, Myotragus sensorem looks like a regular mountain goat. Upon closer inspection however, this creature is a lucky thing to come across. In the wild, Myotragus sensorem is passive, though defensive when attacked. Myotragus are capable of scaling the steep slopes of the mountainous regions. This verticality, combined with their high fortitude when in the presence of certain resources, makes them a dangerous foe if they are attacked in areas containing high quantities of materials often useful to survivors. The sharpened horns of Myotragus allow them to pierce the flesh of creatures and survivors alike, causing them to bleed. Combined with this, Myotragus are about as large as an adult survivor. Thus, it is wise to avoid violent confrontation with Myotragus unless necessary. Domesticated Perhaps the most unique capability of Myotragus is its strange propensity to sensing various local resource deposits along with creatures in a given area. Tribes have found that upon showing Myotragus specific resources, it will point its human companion in the right direction. While Myotragus are not effective gatherers on their own, they have the unique ability of having an easier time carrying the resources which they can sense. This makes them efficient at helping survivors find resources to then carry back to their encampments with ease. The unique jump-height, verticality, and weight carrying capacity of Myotragus, combined with its ability to sense local resources, makes it an excellent companion to have in these harsh lands. Utility With the Dossier out of the way, let's get into the details of the Myotragus. This goat has the utility of 'sensing' resources, but also creatures in a given area. My pitch, is that the radius of this sensing ability can be extended via level-ups, or it could be tied to level in some way. Also, when a Myotragus spawns, it could work similar to the Gacha on Extinction, where it has special capabilities with a random set of resources. The gacha can create those resources, but the Myotragus can instead be able to sense them and carry them with weight reduction. A list of resources may include the following: Raw Metal Obsidian Crystal Gems Oil Sap Sulfur Silica Pearls Black Pearls Fungal Wood Raw Salt Then, the second utility ability of the Myotragus could be that it can similarly sense a random set of creatures, somewhat like the Parasaur but from a much greater distance, only sensing Wild creatures specifically. In my eyes, this can act like a vanilla replacement for mods like S+ that help you track down creatures by just typing their name in. The Myotragus instead can be a balanced approach to this. It would encourage taming lots of them if each one could have drastically different preferred creatures, perhaps 5-8. This way, if you wanted to find one creature or another, you would pick your tamed goat which is especially fond of that creature, and journey out into the lands of Fjordur. Third, I would suggest that the Myotragus can track down Explorer Notes, much like the Direwolf. Except instead, they could detect them from a much larger range. Perhaps tying into a level-up ability increasing the range? As a player who very much enjoys collecting notes for the satisfaction, having this creature on any other map would make it so much easier. Lastly, Myotragus could be a second source of Mutton, as currently the Ovis is the only creature which can be harvested for such meat. That said, I would suggest making the yield from mutton far lower than Ovis, so that it still has dominance in the field of harvesting mutton. Perhaps for every 10 Raw Mutton an ovis grants, the Myo only gets 1-2. The following resources could be obtained from harvesting Myotragus: Raw Mutton Hide Pelt Combat The Myotragus is perhaps most comparable to the male Megaloceros, except both male and female Myotragus have horns. Beyond the sensing ability of the horns, they are also sharp and can deliver serious bleed damage to opponents. In the wild, Myotragus act similar to Pachycephalosaurus, where they will not attack unless provoked. Overall, nothing immensely special, but the Myotragus can deliver enough damage to defend itself and fight off any would-be attackers. It could also be said that Myotragus get buffed when near the creatures that they have a fondness towards sensing / seeking, giving them an actual damage and resistance buff. Perhaps this could be applied for both wild and tamed creatures of the specific type that it likes. Travel Lastly, the goat can be great for traversal, and here's why! As shown in the Dossier, the suggested ability of Myotragus is to be able to walk up very steep surfaces. It does not have to be as extreme as the example shown on the left-hand side in verticality, but it could be comparable to the ability of the Tek Boots, allowing you to go up much steeper cliffs than most creatures, or than how you could as a Survivor on foot. Myotragus could have decent stamina, a fantastic and large jump-height (as seen in goats in the real world), and take far reduced, or perhaps no fall damage whatsoever. Taming Taming Myotragus is a somewhat difficult task, and requires a fairly wide variety of resources. First, survivors must drop a resource on the ground near Myotragus in order to test if their horns indicate that they are excited. After isolating which resource(s) do this, survivors can then drop the resource on the ground (much like with Gachas), which causes the Myotragus to get very excited, and pick up / carry the item, using its horns. After a certain amount of time, the Myotragus will feel like picking up more of its favorite resources, but if it is given the same one repeatedly, the taming effectiveness will go down. Conclusion I hope you like my pitch! Please upvote the Myotragus if this is a creature that appeals to you, and you want more unique mechanics! We don't quite have anything in the base game that can 'track down' specific resources or creatures like this, and so I'm really into this idea!
  9. This is the best community crunch I've seen in a really long time. Lots of content, good communication. I appreciate it Ced, please keep it up and DEFINITELY have Wildcard hire more people to help make it even better.
  10. Wheres the community crunch? I mean come on they take about four seconds to put together based on how little content is ever actually in them
  11. This community crunch only went over things that happened LAST WEEK, and doesn't address the switch version whatsoever and how it's been handling in such a slimy, disgusting, horrible way. Jen, why do you have to be so dishonest with the community?
  12. That setting should be on console, look for DisableStructurePlacementCollision, and set it to true. Might only be in the server settings which would require owning a server from a provider.
  13. No, it doesn't exactly work that way. They like their own kibble, not their own kibble and up.
  14. DisableStructureColission and also yes, tons of dinos are a bit unnecessary now since you only need one type for each type of kibble respectively.
  15. I've tested all of the recipes and I can tell you they are correct, unless they were changed last minute. Just because I'm not part of wildcard doesn't mean I didn't input the right values.
