  1. I liked it when we had the ARKaeology   event.   I liked the Halloween event that when it got dark, meglanias and other cave dwelling creatures came out and roamed on the whole island.  The Thanksgiving even that little turkeys ran around and was even a challenge to kill.  

    Make something like a treasure hunt that we have to find certain things in order be a ble to craft AWSOME high level  BPs ie: Rockdrake, Giga, Rex, Mana, etc.. based on what we can find or collect.(lie, like so many bones, eggs,  water jar blueprints, etc) .  An event recipe of sort  but with multiple items). sometimes it is so hard to find decent BP's that are of any value..

    It doesn’t work. Dino asking for trike egg and you can’t make it

    What if we have old kibble, wonder if they will eat it..

    We had a fear this would happen as we never really saw anyone talk about imprinting.  I saw more of what they should do to the kibble than anything else.

    Thanks for chiming in and answering..  Very much appreciated!    Guess we will just have to do the work arounds..

    You contradict that entire spiel, by your previous statement, and your sign off...

    You said you bought it specifically for ARK, then say you bought it for gaming.

    The bug reports mentioning was directly to the devs and mods if they picked up on my off-topic pointing out to you that buying a PC for a year old game specifically, is counter-productive.

    As for the bug reports, I've tagged devs to no avail... On a bug that causes anyone who plays with the windows live version which works with the XBox, that causes them to not render in good graphics, and looking horrid, regardless of the graphics capability you have, based solely on how far you are from the XBox user. Again, not an actual hardware issue, it's totally a game issue, and they haven't even looked at the bug report as there is no response from them, in over a year of it being 'reported'.

    Maybe you didn't read my post that well...

    I get it!!  ?  and I see your point..  and I misunderstood.. 

    It is and was specifically purchased for Ark in mind..and truthfully bought a little more than I needed to make sure ARK would play.. while keeping in the back of my mind, if and when in the future another game comes out, then it will play it without issues (told myself to justify the extras on my purchase and the GPU I wanted).  

    I do really appreciate your clarifications!!  

    I too do not understand them not fixing the issues.. more and more people are going to get this GPU and will have the same issues.. it is sad my 560 plays better than this RTX, lol..

    You bought a new computer to play a game that's already 2 years old? That's quite counter-productive. You should be buying for the future titles, not the ones you current bought long ago...

    Now if a mod or a dev is going to reprimand me or anything over this post, I urge them to check 1) The bug report that's over a year old and has had NO DEV CONTRIBUTION... And 2) Check my submitted bug report, as it likely attributes to other bugs in the same manner.

    In reply and not meaning so sound mean, but more to clarify.. I didnt look for bug reports prior to purchasing a computer and was unaware of the unreal issue.  I have played ark since DAY 1.. My laptop is getting tired, yet still plays like a champ.. we have two businesses and are very busy.  I wanted a new computer to play ark, so I bought one.  I don't have time to play many other games.. so I say, specifically for ARK at (clarifying) "THIS POINT IN TIME" ?as it is mainly the only game I play.   I do play occasionally SC and COD, but these are not CPU intensive.. So, I beg to differ.. not counter productive.. just want to see ark nice and clear as it should be and not as was being seen thru a GTX 560, 8ram laptop.  Was tired of 5 minute load times, NO, did not have an SSD..   Is there a BIG difference in what I see now compared to before?? HUGE.. helps to have a gaming monitor now too!..   Will this computer be used for future games.. Absolutely, if I find one I want to play..   I have only been gaming for about 35 years so I kind of think I understand why I bought the computer I did  for current and future uses, then again.. maybe not??  ? But I do appreciate your reply.. Thank You! ?

    Clarification:  This computer was purchase specifically for gaming and nothing else..

    Sooo..... when are we to expect an update that makes it so players with RTX graphics cards don't constantly crash? And what's up with DLSS being added? Or are they "a little further out?" You guys did go through the trouble of having nVidia add Ark to all their RTX promotional stuff...  Or was that just a marketing ploy to bump sales?  I'm asking because from what i've read on the Unreal Engine's forum that both DLSS and Raytracing  require not only Direct X 12, but also an updated engine which supports the technologies.

    OH.. Totally feel for you!!  Went thru this myself.. I ordered a new customized computer around Thanksgiving and specifically requested the GTX 1080 Ti, yet when they sent it to me it,  had the RTX 2080 in it.  Had issues from the get go.  After a week of frustrations and trying everything I could think of, sent the computer back and insisted it was the GPU.  They swapped it out with a different RTX 2080 (grrrrr.. they said GXT 1080Ti was no longer available) and sent it back to me and again, crash after crash after crash (during the first 5 minutes of playing).  So, I did more research.  NOTE: I did buy the new computer specifically to play ARK. I was originally playing on 9yo Laptop (it was time) so this was a VERY BIG ISSUE for me.  

    Long story short.. I found this link.. https://steamcommunity.com/app/346110/discussions/0/3223871682616487082/ 

    The work around I used was Put in Set launch options -norhithread  .  This was the least invasive thing I had to do to the computer and works perfect.  No more crashes (knock on wood). 

    I do not run all epic although I can.  My FPS average 100..   

    Very happy it works, but don't like the band-Aid..

    Good Luck..   OH.. and I did see where someone mentioned to use the setting terrain shadows to low.. I think I have the same setting also only because I don't like the shadows as much but I ran it epic on all after I fixed it and had no errors.. It was after the fix that I changed various settings.. 

  6. I have skimmed thru this thread.. and please don't yell if I missed it.. but I saw where someone put out a pdf yesterday of the kibbles and who eats what based on all of the conversations going back and forth.  One of the things I have noticed is that some of the dinos are missings from the list.. I did not see what is needed to tame a thylo for example.  Which other dinos have been missed.. 

    As far as kibbles and imprinting.. is it possible that if a baby wants a raptor kibble as comfort that we make the small kibble using a raptor egg for the comfort food?  This is definitely one of the major concerns of our tribe is imprinting...

    Hopefully they put new files up, as november till februarys a fair time in ark and alot of hard work would have been done in this time just to be told there being removed.


    Wish some admin or that would at least confirm this as ive been just feeding dinos hoping that they update that save file.


    Saw this posted today:

    The Great Migration #2!

    This will be our final warning regarding the second deprecation of some of our legacy servers! It will take place on Friday, 9th of March. We'll be starting off by working on bringing these specific Legacy Servers offline in the early morning, and by the end of the evening, we'll have a launched a bunch of new Official Servers across all platforms. The save files for the PC servers will be made available on Friday the 9th, and we'll be working with Nitrado to get the console ones online as soon as possible! If you are a player on the Official Legacy Server Network please read the full post at the link below for more information as well as a list of which Legacy servers are being taken down permanently.



    I would assume they will do the save on March 8 and make them available when they say on March 9th.. I personally would not do any major taming or building after today because they do not "specifically" state the save date..

    Information on that was posted on February 10th, in the Community Crunch 118.  Legacy wipe will be on March 9th.

    Yes.. Legacy wipe Mar 9th, but it did not say anything about saves for the people who at playing on the legacy servers which are being wiped, unfortunately.  I must have quoted the incorrect thing.. I meant to quote..the question about the saves.. my bad.. I am sorry for the confusion! :-)

    This is what they said in relation to saved files and where to find such files:  https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/pc-legacy-pve-saves/

    Official PC Legacy PVE Savefiles

    These save files were taken from the Official Servers on the 10th of November 2017.

    Over time, if we end up repurposing more Legacy PC servers due to inactivity, we will ensure that their save files are accessible through here.

    To find your Official PC Legacy Server save file from the list, just hover over the drop down menu and scroll through the list; you can also hit Ctrl+F on the keyboard and type your server name or number to quickly find your server.

    Yes that was the exact number 958. It was a NA PVE Hardcore ScorchedEarth server. In fact it and one EU one were the last ones to survive until the very end.

    Ya, I saw another hardcore one but definitely not that one.. did you try putting in a ticket?  Maybe they missed it by accident?

  10. Are you sure there was a 958?? I see about 3 to 4 in the list but they are all below the 900's..  And please don't bite my head off :-)  It is a simple questions.. and I can really understand your frustration if they did not save it.. might take a ticket to ask??

    You need to find out your steam id, then find the profile in the save file with your steam id and change the steam id number to localplayer (I can't remember if the l and p need to be capitals)

    As for performance it will be poor at the start, even my server was the first day or so as the dinos and structures are loaded the first time. But it did improve for us and is much better now that we are about half way through removing everyone's bases and dinos we don't want around.

    Oh and a word to warning if you do use the command to wipe  a whole tribes structures at once you will lag hard and possibly crash your game or get dcd from your server

    I found that but there are 2 files for every ID.. but different extensions.. (don't have it in front of me atm) which do I use and I change it from, for example 12121212121.arkprofile to local.arkprofile (I saw this post somewhere also).. I wish I knew what the other extension was.. 


    How do you wipe a specific tribe structure and not ones you don't want?  Sorry.. very new to admin commands.. never used them before :-)

    BTW.. thank you!!!  VERY MUCH!!


  12. OK.. really REALLY dumb question.. so .. I saved the files to my single player as per instructed.. question is.. it makes me start a new character... it wont let me in my base or any other base for that matter and I see a timer going down.. besides.. beings seriously choppy and laggy.. anyone have any suggestion on how I can get into my base as my character and how to stop the count down?   I apologize in advance for the stupidity of this.. btw.. I play PC version!  Win 10..

    For those who can't see/find to segment Bearbrat's looking at:

    From the Community Crunch:

    As I am sure many of you are aware our rentable servers update cleared certification and went out on Monday. Since then many have asked when their official save data will be available, as it can be hosted via Nitrado on your rented server. We will be working on this over the weekend, and will provide a link here on this post as well as on Twitter once the process is finished. This will include all of the legacy PVE servers on all platforms. (We cannot provide PVP servers, as it would give unfair advantage to people playing on those servers by allowing people to snoop through others bases with the save files.)

    We can only hope this is true.. One week over their promised 'one week' would be more than long enough to wait for those of us on PVE waiting with baited breath.. lol

    And, good eye, Bearbrat.. I missed that, as I've been watching that thread, as well.

    OH..Thank you SOOOO much, ValaRhan.. for bringing clarity to  my post... very much appreciated!!!  Thank You!!

    Come one WIldCard, we want these saves!  You're going to need more servers when Abberation starts up, give us our saves and you can re-purpose the legacy servers!!



    On the other post I keep following, this was posted :   

    Looks like maybe this weekend or next weekend...  if this particular post doesn't come up when you click it ( I apologize for doing it wrong in that case) then It is on page 4 of the thread 1/2 way down...  Again .. my apologies in advance..

    Is there any way I can get a previous save point of a server that was closed. I played on Official Server 347 and we we're mega tribe wiped which is why the player base dropped and sevrer was deleted. I would love to get a save file from just before the wipe so I could continue my breedlines that were all killed and maybe get some of my freinds to play again we had a great community and it was ruined by the Megatribe server wipers without reason other than they wanted to farm our bullets :(


    I think the only saves available are the ones that were wiped.. and the saves we are asking for are the current legacy servers.. that we know will be wiped no matter what and is just a matter of time.
