      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

      TLC Update - Ragnarok 'Puzzle' Cave.   03/20/18

        In our most recent Ragnarok Update, the puzzle cave was revised so that it would no longer allow survivors to build within it. Due to this change, player structures found in this location were removed and some dinos became stuck. We will not be rolling back our servers at this time. We would like to keep rollbacks limited to major service-wide disruptions going forward due to complications caused by CrossARK and Tribes (part of being a multi-server persistent open-world survival game). Later today, we'll be rolling a server update which will allow survivors to build in this area for an additional week so that players can move their creatures via a transmitter or teleporter. After the 27th of March, this will no longer be possible so please use this time to remove your creatures swiftly. Console players, please use this time to move out any creatures or structures you have in this cave because once the update hits, you'll no longer be able to do so! Thank you for your patience and ongoing support, survivors!

  1. Well the first thing that got me was I am a big Jurassic Park fan. So the fact it had dinosaurs in it that you could run around and die to, and tame was a plus for me. Not too mention that the game reminded me a lot of a childhood cartoon I used to watch all the time. Dino riders. So I was quickly sold on it.
  2. Favorite ride?

    Beginner: Raprot my raptor. (On accidentally typed it in global and the name stuck.) Mid level: Stegosaurus (Always holds a special place for me since childhood) High level: T-Rex (As a role player, I always make dwarvish characters, so it resembles them. Built like stone, and fierce as an axe wielding dwarf.) Water: Mossasaurus (Lir will always have a special place in my heart, R.I.P due to corrupted file). Avian: Argentavis (All around balanced bird. Can fight, fly, and carry when needed.) Be safe, and good luck fellow survivors!
  3. I know what an opinion is, and I must be unlucky and just come across your posts where it's seeming negative, and maybe it's the language barrier or the way things are typed and I'm misreading, but it didn't seem like criticism to me. If I'm at fault, then I have no issues apologizing. Now I admit, I could go read through your profile and look through every post, but I don't have time to be on the forums that long. So I will leave it at that. As for the fight, I don't just let my dinosaurs do the fighting for me. I've played enough games over the years where I'm a team player. Whether Npc, or actual player. I assist in the fighting. But sadly just as there are exploits, no matter how it's done, that's a game play mechanic which won't change as that's part of the core game, and if the person uses it like that, who are we to judge them for using it that way.
  4. is there a a way to get it to re appear at the top


    1. Grimm


      If there is no button for you yet, it might effect you like it does the trade section of the forums.   You might have to make some posts in the forums in order to get rid of your early bird status, and then you will have full access to the forums.


      They do this to try and nullify troll spam and posts, so don't take offense to it.

      @Casanova do you know if that's accurate or not?   If it's not, could you possibly point him in the right direction, with that heavenly admin power.   Lol.   :) 

  5. grim, there isnt a add tribe button for me


  6. Really Vargata? Can you not have one positive thing to say in these forums? It doesn't matter if you bring the dinosaurs or not. It's part of the game play mechanics. You take tamed dinosaurs with you, and therefore it allows you to win the fight, regardless if you choose to let the dinosaurs do the work or not.
  7. Trolls

    As much as it is frustrating, it is part of the game right now. With it being in development still (not using it as an excuse), sadly we are the testers in this and get tout deal with it. Hopefully down the road there will be balance, as I'm sure that's what they want. But we aren't to that stage yet, nor will they put the resources into balancing it yet. I wish you the best in the game, and good luck.
  8. Rogue One - An Ark Story

    Eagerly awaiting to hear the next Weeks adventures. Be safe Rogue One, and "may the ark be with you"...........
  9. Pegomastax

    I'm not sure in Regards to pve, but here's how they work. If someone drops a wild pegomastax, they will sneak up on you and "rob" you. When you get the notification, you will want to turn and kill it immediately as that is the only way to get your loot back. Remember this, if too long passes, it will come back for more loot normally. Usually you can get all the items back if it's just 1 that keeps stealing. As for the tamed ones, there are 2 settings. Fast and normal I believe they are (sorry I can't remember right now), basically normal it will steal from someone once and then goes on passive automatically. Fast, it will steal, and then go for more when it's ready to. So if someone sees someone, they can look at you with a spyglass, whistle it to attack and it will rob you and then simply whistle it back. Regardless, if you get that message you will want to scan the area and kill any pegomastax you see in hopes of getting your gear back. I do believe when they take stuff there is a system it follows on what it takes over other items. But usually it's just random, I think you just got a bad draw on that one. Good luck!
  10. lag LAG on ALL servers

    What I really think needs to be done is WC just needs to look at getting a different provider. When I started playing this game, (Can't recall when i started, but it's been easily over a year ago), after some bad experiences on official servers. Yes, some of it was me just learning the game and making stupid mistakes and enemies, I decided to try to learn the game at my own pace and get my own server. I purchased one from Nitrado as I thought "Hey, they use them as the official host so they have to be good." Yeah, that was a big mistake on my part. I never had so many issues with a company like that. Constant downtime on my server, and may other issues. Rubberbanding, etc. I went with another provider and couldn't be happier since. Yes, I don't get the quantity of players as the officials do, but I do think that Nitrado's lack of proper equipment, etc, could be a major issue with the servers. I'm sure if WC was to try a different company, they might have better server performance. That's just my experience.
  11. There are a few mods out there that I have enjoyed using that make up for not having primitive plus. Look for medieval props mod. Has various items to give it a homely appeal. Furniture, lighting fixtures (candles, etc), dock pieces if you want to make a dock system. I currently have it on my server. I will provide you my server advertisement link so you can see the list of mods I use, and easily click the link to get to the mod to make it easier. Glad I could have helped!
  12. The only way to use the primitive plus stuff is to enable it on your server. I was using it for a while, but due to the lack of patches and late content when new patches come out, I chose to stop using it. When it's finished I might go back to it. A bit of a warning, if you use it, all the tech stuff (electricity, fabricators, etc) are not in it. Only primitive items. Also it's a total conversion mod, so expect long load times. If anything, test it in single player and admin level your character and spawn in everything so you can see them first hand and see if you really like it before putting it on your server. Good luck!!
  13. Paint Jobs Disappearing

    I've already passed this on to @complexminded, as I thought it was a Prim+ bug, but sounds to me it might be overall. I'm having the same issue on my Prim+ server.
  14. Kapro Sneak Attack!

    Yes.......it's going to be so much fun getting ambushed by these.
  15. yes..i am on a mac.and yesterday purchased a rental server from Nitado and Survival Servers...both...the reps from both services can log onto my rental servers..i however cannot..with Nitrado..i spent over 3 hours with a rep via telephone getting it set up..my server shows up on my favorite list but when i put my password in..it goes thru the connecting process then immediately kicks me back to the Ark log in page..nothing that the server providers can do to help with this..with Survival Servers...cant even get my server to any of the server lists..not even using the "connect to server " option.and again..the server reps can log onto my server but i cannot?
