  1. Swamp fever

    Seems that instead of an antidote we need a vaccine that could buff us for a few days with immunity!
  2. Queen Bee - Taming issues?

    That is how I did, no issues. I did had a full Ghillie Suit, but I don't recall if I used a bug repellent, might as well go with it to be safe. But the thing is to LAY down with "X" (on PC), not crouch as ArKie said.
  3. Swamp fever

    Wow, you will have an awesome story to tell after you survive all that. You need to stay clear from each other (even corpses). Make sure the non-infected are isolated from the rest. If a healthy person has the antidote, drop it from a bird (fly high so you don't catch it), or drop it on the ground and back track so the infected can grab it. Still, its a neat story should you overcome it. Fishing is a great way to get the supplies you need for the cure.
  4. We need kibble to tame and imprint in Aberration

    There is always breeding for perfect taming effectiveness... Its another option.
  5. The TLC creatures look fantastic! I can't wait for the deployment of those. I really cannot add more to these announced ones and their new abilities. Thank you WIldcard! Keep'em coming! Cheers!

  7. I swear to you wildcard ...

    Well, I have been waiting for a more mature CG / Pixar like movie done right. I mean, take Shrek por example, some of the armor sets there are really cool, imagine having better fantasy elements and large scale battles. The technology has advanced so much. Perhaps instead of going live action, you could do something more like that. When I look at Star Wars Ep 1 and 2, the animations looked like plastic, and when actors interact with fictional things it breaks immersion. A intense animation would be one way to do it differently. Not to mention that Woody from Toy Story 1 had more facial animation than Anakin Skywalker's actor for Ep 2 and 3. Then you have the Final Fantasy Spirits within movie, it wasn't that great, why? Because it broke all formats of the source material (aside from having a character named Cid). I like How to Train your Dragon 1 a lot, the lighting on that movie is by far one of the best in its format. There is room for that. So in short, I think an Ark animation, portraying Nerva, Helena, Diana, Rockwell, etc... Would be awesome. You would have the scale, the visual fidelity and could go digital distribution and boycott the terrible format presented by Hollywood now days. That is my two cents. Cheers!
  8. Constant client crashes

    Getting this error... I am playing on PC, using a Nitrado server. Never has it crashed so often. I am on The Island. I can log right back in, but the whole game just closes. Here is the error: Fatal error!

  9. Next Expansion Discussion

    I do, I just want to do the hard way, but some things have already been spoiled .
  10. Island difficulty level.

    Yes, you are correct. All maps have 150 lvl creatures now, which corresponds to Override Difficulty = 5.0, with Difficulty offset = 1.0.
  11. What Has This Game Become?

    Back at the topic at hand. PVE can get crowded, so I went for private / unofficial, however everything presents a challenge: - PVP Official: Challenge: Always get wiped How to mitigate: Gain trust from other people and join larger tribes (it does take time), less prone to attacks and if rebuilding is needed it will be faster. Having 8 hours a day to play is a plus (I don't). - PVE Official: Challenge: Gets crowded and can be troll proving grounds. How to mitigate: Patience and preset your mind so that you will expect the island will look like garbage, setting expectations soon and low is a great way to ensure you will be pleasantly surprised. Don't get baited by trolls and they lose interest. - Unofficial as a player: Challenge: Servers can go down without noticed and/or rules change often or make way for corrupt admins. How to mitigate: Check the reputation of a server and their admins, see what their communities give as feedback, but nothing is a sure thing. - Unofficial as a host: Best option as you dictate when the server goes down (if ever), from a hosts perspective if you can be true to your own rules and make sure it is respected (if you can not cheat for example), your gameplay will be secured, you can back things up. Challenge: The problem, can get expensive fast. How to mitigate: Don't give into corruption and be willing to spend some cash into this. - Dedicated Server (from your home): If you have the machine, you can host a server for other people, this is by far the best option, but I never met anyone that had a server laying around for all Ark maps to run in cluster. How to mitigate: Be fairly wealthy and willing. These are obviously no rules, but rather my personal guidelines to set expectations for each scenario. Cheers
  12. Next Expansion Discussion

    Explorer notes do give more insight, I have not collected them all, but the whole Homo Deus is quite interesting. I hope we learn more about it. Hybrids is something that came up, I would find it interesting as well, I recall way back a Jurassic Park toy line called "Chaos Effect", which had apex like Ultimasaurus (Rex+Trike) . As for the hazards I have no clue what would pop-up, each Ark was very distinct in that regard. I still am hoping for some highly advanced gear, (Aka more Tek stuff) kinda like the Ark Futurism Mech/exo, albeit with a Tek art style and glow. All in all, I have heard all these ideas and to be honest I am pretty excited for what Wildcard has in store. It would be interesting if we did meet the Explorer notes' survivors, despite how long it has been, if they became Homo Deus, time is then irrelevant to them, so they could still be "alive". I only hope that we will have some kind of ultimate power, ascending a fourth time should make us look different and provide a unique / distinct power in regards to non-ascendant survivors. Cheers!
  13. Thanks, I will take a look at it. I still wanted to stay clear from mods if possible, in past games I became a "hostage" to modders as their mods would break with new client releases and not be updated in a reasonable time (within 15 days after the official update is what I consider reasonable for my playing addiction needs). Since then, I stay clear from mods in general as I like to get my hands on official content as soon as possible. I am aware that in the case of Ark, mods are more stable between versions since everyone is using the same development tools, still the past haunts me when it comes to mods. My ill experience with mods has made me ask for this feature to be built in, as a switch so tagged creatures could be allowed to breed using existing rules from the current breedable animals, I rather not depend on some kind soul to fix what I believe is a reasonable thing to ask for in the main game for unofficial use, of course, leaving the meta alone as intended. Cheers!
  14. I run an unofficial server with friends, and we did inevitably run into the Wyvern being non-breedable conversation. If it would be possible, it be great if we could have an option to make them breedable thru server command (a plus if you make Nitrado put a box for it). Just using the existing rules, we don't really mind them being overly powerful on our server and if we run into an issue, will just flag it back off and then begin an epic hunt for the "great wyrms". The same goes for Titanosaur, Griffin, Phoenix, etc... Essentially making all tamable creatures breedable, provided they have gender (I would suggest a separate command to breed genderless such as Titanoboa). Also, the Reaper Queen should be included in the "feed raid dinosaur" as in making it possible to birth a Queen, along side proper riding animation for it. Its too cool not to have it. Just give us a command we can run on our servers, this way we can play the way we want to, avoiding clumsy mods. Cheers!
  15. ARK Digest Q&A!

    Now that we have more content out, I was wondering if there are any plans to revisit the expansions in terms of adding new creatures to them. I always assumed that Scorched Earth and now Aberration would get additional creatures as the Island did post "launch" (not necessarily that many, but at least more animal diversity as exclusives to those maps). Considering the cannon maps only: - The Island has dinos and pre-historic theme. - Scorched Earth has the mythical and fantasy theme - Aberration has alien theme. After the Phoenix release, I am hopeful that a few more animals could be introduced to these established expansions. Lastly, I remember that way back you guys said that the end game dungeon (volcano) would take us to a spaceship and fight the last boss. It seems the spaceship was ditched for the station (which, in context made more sense). Is the spaceship still a thing though?
