  1. Having past experience, there is about 80% chance something goes wrong and all those structures are destroyed. Thankfully, there are server rollbacks but still, that takes time and complicates things. My current base fence is built with three pillars (one on top of each other) and then two rows of walls...rince and repeat. Looks beautiful and pillars prevent other players from building too close to my walls (fence foundations do not do that). But even then, I have few pillars missing because snap points went nuts and those pillars (even being surrounded by walls) were considered as lone structures and were auto-demoed 12 h later. I don't know what better solution there could be, but I do know that preventing us from using only a pillar+ladder / pillar + ceiling will not be a solution. I like my base and I wanna keep it jerk-free, so if need be, i'll built 2x2 houses, or if need be i'll build 4x4 houses or if need be i'll build 10x10 houses to protect what I have. Those who have means to spam pillar an area...they have the means to build castles on every single pillar+ladder location. Maybe the best solution is to finally implement Structures+ mod and give us better building mats.

    Would you really quit if.....

    Would restart only if building was truly improved, if kibble system was really improved. Otherwise...don't think I have the patience to do it all again.
  3. Any specific news on the progress of S+ integration ? Seems to me that besides WC hiring Orionsun (S+ developer), there hasn't been much technical work done.

    New Player: Mods or No?

    Mods are only for private/custom servers and single player. It is to note that some mods have been converted for official use, two maps (Ragnarok and The Center) and in the future the building mod Structures +. Depending on what you like about the game, you could live with zero or 100 mods. I personally love building and the in-game build system is awful. So if like me you love building, Structures + is a must. Other building popular mods are everything made by Eco and the Steampunk stuff.

    Thinking of buying game...

    I would strongly invite you to check some of the videos of a normal PS4 and the graphics of the game. Usually console games are optimized for consoles, ARK is not this type of the game. PS4 Pro may give better results but the game is still SUB-PAR on PS4, just slightly better on XBOX. Just my 2 cents.

    How to build

    In the same post you manage to point the issue, provide the solution and put all the blame on players. You know those unofficials that have ACTIVE ADMINS TO POLICE...is exactly what Officials lack, but somehow that lack is because of us the players. If Wildcard had any legitimate and competent GMs who were doing their job resolving a multitude of issues common to a massive multiplayer online game....people wouldn't have to ressort to pillars as a solution.
  7. I like them. During the week I just farm enough meat/berries to feed my dinos. On double weekends I go out and farm enough to fill all my fridges for the next week(s).

    Valentine event on single player

    Technically, if you wipe all wild dinos on your SP, you should see some event colored dinos spawn in.

    Chocolate question.

    5% chance, means that even if you breed 100 times, its only a chance that you may get 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or more chocolates. In other words...someone will breed only 10 dinos and will get 10 chocolates and someone will breed 200 dinos and only get 1.

    Colour Mutations losing value now?

    Color mutations lost value much more with the 278 TLC patch than they did with xmas or vday dinos.

    Let's talk TLC Phase 1/v278 Patch Notes!

    I understand that, but either an admin gives me the mode or makes me admin myself. In that way, If I gain your trust to either have the mode or the admin rights...I'm able to abuse one way or the other, so yes the keyword is the trust you have in people who receive the mode. But for me (using it in SP) its a great feature because it saves me from having to place down a vault and spawn all possible structure item when I wanna be creative and build something nice.

    May I ask what will happen when you find a new game or get tired of Ark ? No one honestly can pretend they will be playing Ark for the next 10 years. I think that's the main problem with unofficials, the uncertainty. You can keep hosting your server for 10 years and it will be great, but many people (because it's in the human nature) grow tired and find something else. Some finish college, start a family and let go of gaming, some change jobs and cannot afford gaming time, some others have something bad happen...

    Last time they cut 900+ servers and added back about 100 servers, most of which were for Aberration. I wouldn't have high hopes given this time they are barely cutting 100 servers...we can expect 10-15 new ones ? One pvp, one pve, one each map, one each region....

    The mode is good but it ''cannot'' be abused I guess because it requires admin rights (which in itself allows you to spam spawn the desired number of what ever you want). So, it doesn't apply to official servers and on unofficials requires the admin rights.
  15. I've tried this method many many times and it failed miserably. Our trick is to build a double pen. Like in this picture. The idea is that the wider space is a level one box, it can be empty, or like in our case, we put a feeding trough and boxes where we store the fert/poop. Beetles are in the smaller box that is level two box. Usually they will not glitch thru walls but thru ceilings when they get rendered. Most of the time, they do not glitch, but when they do, they drop down in the level one box area where they are easy to pick up and put back into their holding area. I've had this set up for over a year now and I have never had a beetle escape the 2nd (level 1) box.
