  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. is there a a way to get it to re appear at the top

      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.   :) 

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

    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.

    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.

    Primitive plus items on normal server?

    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!

    Primitive plus items on normal server?

    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!!

    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.

    Community Crunch 46 & ARK Digest 30!

    I'm sure that if you are already in the Snow Biome, that those areas aren't going to be touched. Maybe a slight touch up to the out edge of the current Snow Biome so it blends in with the new areas, but if you have a base that is currently in warm area that will be taken over by the snow biome, I'm sure it will act just like when we initially got the snow and swamp. Anything in those areas will be affected. Now for if your base will be wrecked, only time will tell. But the fact that they gave us an early enough warning, along with letting us know the potential for dinosaurs to vanish if we leave them there, is enough to relocate. If a tree or boulder has to be placed where your dinosaur is at, it will potentially get bumped underground, or stuck in the boulder and you might not know it. I currently run a server that has my tribe, and 2 other tribes that are smack dab in the middle of the terrain change. 1 in the Redwoods area, 1 right on the warm/cold border of the Snow, and mine which is on the coast, but will be overtaken by the snow. So after talking to those tribes and giving them a heads up about what I've read here, all of us are planning on relocating. Not worth risking all the dinosaurs that were tamed, etc........I'd rather spend days rebuilding a base (I enjoy building bases), rather than spending the long hours re-taming a dinosaur. Regardless, good luck to you in whichever decision you may make! Be safe and happy arking!
  12. There are other options for those who are playing on a private server. A few things I have done for a few players in extreme conditions i.e it was a very special Dino, specific to them (first Rex, etc) is I downloaded the saved folder from the server to my machine. Replaced it with my saved folder locally in order to go into single player to retrieve the dinosaur and upload it at an obelisk. I then would ensure to log on when there was no one on and could safely stop the server, enable downloading and place the dinosaur back on the server using an obelisk. Then change the setting, and restart the server. Once that person logged back on, I gave them the dinosaur back. Not saying every admin would do that, it all depends on how they are. Usually though as said previously, giving kibble and narcotics to allow them to retame made them happy too! I do know in order to stay on topic, one tribe on my server seems to have dinosaurs disappear very frequently as they have a base built above a river and seems that any dinosaur placed on that section of their base likes to glitch through the floor into the river, or else just disappears.
