  1. Feel free! I will be stealing a few others I saw in here, too, I'm sure.
  2. Oh, Doey names! Doughy Doughboy Doh! (reserved for max level tames) Rock N Roll ... and I usually name beavers: WuldChuk and CuldChuk. If you don't get those references, then you have never pondered how much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood... edit: typo
  3. Oh, dear, dear, dear. I'm loving this thread. I tend to use funny names (getting great new ideas here), so here goes: Rap Sheet: first raptor. When I get a GOOD raptor, I name them Bad Rap. A pretty patterned raptor will be Pretty Bad Rap. Package and Male Package (Turtles... what, they are PACK dinos...) Dipstick (Diplo.. this goes back to an old TV show, The Dukes of Hazard: "Enos, you dipstick!"... yes, they are much like Enos....) Devon and Selkirk are always my first two Rexes, usually immediately followed by Cornish. Devon Rex, Selkirk Rex, and Cornish Rexs are cat breeds. I've also used "Mr. T" (that's got to be a very popular Rex name...) Catcher in the Sky (first Quetz that gets made into a Quetz-catching-Quetz). Pun on "Catcher in the Rye" My first serious (high level) Quetz was named Instant Replay... because we hit a bug while taming him, and had to restart the server and do it again. Allozon Prime is my max Allosaur. If you don't get that, you've never shopped on Amazon. My first male Ptera is always Wilbur. The first female is always Amelia. The second male is usually Orville. If you don't recognize those names in reference to flight, you need to study history. I'm also fond of using "Mario Greymax" as I seem to find max level grey/white pteras. But you won't get the reference unless you are Steven Brust fan. Shere Khan is usually my male cat. I really hope people recognize THAT one... I named my first male Giga... Shytz (that's probably going to get censored out). I figured if I got a female, I would name her "Giggles". Then I would have "Shytz and Giggles". Hopefully, you will figure it out despite any editing... (if not, I'll link a screenshot with his name) Compaq (Compy). Usually followed by Dell (I can't claim credit for that one--stole it from a friend) Quiche and Omlette for Ovis. And, because my creativity only runs so far... I usually name my Argys using the current Hurricane and Tropical Storm name list, in Alpha order. This can get weird if I start with one year's list then move to the next. I have Alex and Bonnie right now, but I may have used last year's list because I got the male first, and lists alternate male female (meaning, last year's started with a male; this year starts with female).
  4. ... hardly a "handful" of people throwing a tantrum over this. Looks like a large portion of the population. Not to mention all my friends who are also quitting and aren't posting. No, not a "handful" at all. More like bucketloads.
  5. I already posted a negative review on Steam, and I refuse to play again until this is fixed. My ptera went from 2500 stamina to... 500. That's reduced to 20% of what it was. Not a 20% reduction, which would have been reasonable to re-balance. And that wasn't the only part of this nerf. The Devs have this nasty habit of over-nerfing. Now, if they put a fix in so private servers can opt out of this, like they did for the dino nerfs, fine. Then I can play again. But the fact that they are ignoring this huge segment of their community that plays on private is rather sad, and will spell the doom of the game if the devs don't wake up.
  6. I was really looking forward to a lot of stuff in this patch, but the flyer nerf killed this game for me. I've shut down my servers until the dev's undo it, or give me a way to choose to undo it on my server, as they have for previous dino nerfs. My main ptera went from 2500 stam to... 500. I can do what... one barrel roll? And now there is a timer? What's the point of fliers now? They aren't even FAST anymore! That was their main utility, and now it's gone? While some of these changes have needed fixed for a LONG time (the whole "regen stamina on a Quetz by just getting out of the saddle" thing was ridiculous, I agree), most of this was completely unnecessary. Worse, the main utility of a flier is to get from point A to point B quickly. By removing the ability to configure speed, you just made them... vanilla. All fliers.. are basically the same now. I often had 2 pteras: one for fighting, and one for moving somewhere fast. What's the point now for 2? Can't do either so why have any? This wasn't a nerf. You basically took fliers out of the game... without actually removing the dino. How about the Devs stop listening to people who don't like how other people configure their dinos? How about you remember there are PvE players, too, who this impacts? When you do, I'll play again. Until then, you just totally destroyed this game for me. Thanks! Good thing I bought another game to play this weekend... 'cause you just trashed my "I'm going to have a pleasant weekend of playing ARK", too. EDIT: A friend commented this might be an April Fool's joke. If it is, it's not funny. Not on a Saturday when a lot of people want to play, and it trashed the game. On the other hand, I hope it IS a joke, because then it WILL get fixed. This is ridiculous. ... now I'm off to play... something else...
  7. So, some friends of mine and I are trying to make a generated ARK that has both the SE and regular content in it (so we don't have to keep swapping servers). All of us have SE. Experimentation shows that the SE spawns are not working on the generated ARKs. Is there some way to do this? I would imagine that using one of the SE biomes would immediately cause the server to require the SE expansion to log in... is this "in the future", or is it available now? I suspect that's what many other folks are trying to do as well, but figured I'd toss it out clearly.
