  1. The trailer that launched with the game on steam, posted on May 2015. Speaking for myself, they did deliver on the expectation they created here. That is all that needs to be mentioned. Cheers & carry on!
  2. You know, my first reaction is pretty much the same as you. However, let it sink in for a while. Bear with me if you can. I never enjoyed Primitive Plus for example, for that reason specifically. I never liked the idea of an Ark 2, I posted about it years ago and I systematically recommended against it with listed reasons, but 6 years... That is a lot of time and I did concede the devs need to move the franchise further. Ark has become my most played game ever, E-V-E-R, lol. It even stopped me from buying other games for a long time as I wanted to be in Ark and not elsewhere, they be
  3. Thanks for the reminder, I do back up often, but it does not hurt to do it for my last session.
  4. Rex Stat Calculator | Dododex | ARK: Survival Evolved This is the way.
  5. I have a soft spot for Scorched Earth, but its not there. Though I do have a hard time picking one in specific. The only one I am not a huge fan of is Genesis part 1, I don´t like the way it is structured as it feels confined. I do like the several themes in it though.
  6. As far as facelifts goes, I am cool with large animals like the Giga and Bronto to be updated. Because they are so large, you can tell they are really stiff and old. After the Rex and Trike revisions (two species I really like), I can certainly say that a Giga update would be really awesome. I would add Plesio's face to the list too, everything else is fine but that face feels really odd.
  7. If I had to pick something, its the little things that really annoy me. RIght now the fact that when I create a torch, the icon displayed is blank instead of heaving the picture (or equivalent) for a torch, lol.
  8. I can only speak from personal experience. In my case, Scorched Earth proved to be more stable over the others.
  9. I had this issue before and this solved my problem: https://ark.gamepedia.com/Difficulty Hope this helps, cheers!
  10. Indeed, that's what it is at stake here. If you, @Vit0Corleone, are looking for true old school boss fights, then 20 Rexes were the way to go back then. At least it was the most common strategy I saw at the time. However, I vaguely recall there was an update which made changes to the bosses stats (could someone confirm this please?). If so, then a true origin experience is not viable without modding. That's even without considering breeding came in later, it was something added along the road. As I keep adding these points up it seems nearly impossible to solo, lol. They were radically hard
  11. Water missions are not my strong point, I only recently decided to invest in this area as well, this time for real. There is one concern I like to raise based on a previous taming pen I had. You see, Quetzal with taming pens work really well to capture other Quetzals because they are non aggressive and flee. A couple of years ago, a friend and I build a taming raft and tried to doc it on the carno island. My friend built the entire structure on the wooden raft and used metal around it to encase it. I raised my concern as to the wooden raft but he thought we were fine. Fair enough,
  12. I had to respawn to get the spear and axe. Raptor skin popped up automatically after clicking the video. I must say, the raptor skin is actually pretty cool! Its out of place with everything around it to be sure, but I could totally endorse a few more in that style as trailers get published. Like Parasaur could be another one.
  13. Mined some metal for my new water pen. Its going to be awesome when done! Also, started planning a generator relocation and streamline the electrical system so I can remove all excess ones and feed a single one for my entire base. I postponed that for too long already. Continued my Rex breeding line. Still some raw stats to obtain, not quite there yet for my army. Yet they are reaching a point where not even an Alpha Rex can oppose it. Still need a better saddle blueprint though. Need I say that both Mammoths and Stegos have become really useful for my current structure? That was

    ARK 2!!

    "StarCraft Universe" was one of their April Fool's jokes all the way back. I kinda wanted it back then. lol. Not anymore as I rather spend my time with dinosaurs.

    ARK 2!!

    I was hoping that it wasn't Ark 2. I get it, we need to get the ball rolling and its been a long time since the original Ark launched. Now that this is a fact, that it is coming, I will try to look at the positive side of things: 1.) If it is console exclusive (no pc), which I highly doubt it, then I have no issue and wish you all the best in Wildcard's future endeavors. 2.) With Genesis Part 2 I have about 3 years of gameplay, if not a little more. No seriously, I have an expansion backlog as of today. I take my time with them as I enjoy the path as well as the outcome. This will l
