  1. Underwater and Dungeons

    Hello, I'm going back to check this Aberration DLC. But, besides the new DLC, I want to try two features that I've skipped in the past: 1) Underwater experience ( mostly played scorched earth ) 2) Dungeons ( played SP most of the time and they were empty there ) Aberration have dungeons and underwater areas? Or it's better I focus on other maps for it? I'm a PS4 player, so... Ragnarok, The Isle or The Center?
  2. Structures +

    Well.. Sorry for the post ressurection, but... S+ made it to PS4?
  3. Aberration and SinglePlayer

    hahaha, but I'm sure no one made cozy cabins for u like I do to my dinos. And still they just move away of each other when things are almost there. Wait... maybe they are actively avoiding the babies after all the fun? Smart teenagers...
  4. Hello! I'm almost buying Aberration to play Ark again. I'm a PS4 SinglePlayer player, and how is Aberration with SinglePlayer? P.S.: I've played a lot of scorched earth and only quit because got a little angry with the need to carefully park dinos to breed since they seem to have no sexual desire ( that part is still in game, right? )
  5. Comming Back after 6 months

    Thanks! 1. Yes... but advertised as having singleplayer options Thanks very much! I'm on PS4 ( far as I know: no mod support ), I wil hold on for a little longer.
  6. Hello! I havent played Ark for about 6 months... Now the withdraw is taking over and I need some updates on what changed, can anybody give me some hints? Most of the questions will have a little complain about the game. But don't get me wrong... The game is great, i just want to know if the things that annoyed me most is still there. 1) Any singleplayer improvements? 1.1)Back in the days caves had a respaw bug in SP... 1.2)The building cost of some equipments was intended to fit in a MP economy. The solution in SP was to increase the gathering rates, but that caused a lot of trouble managing inventories. 2) Any breeding system improvements? In the past we had to cage tow dinos close together so they could breed... That caused a lot of trouble: 2.1) Dino heads and tails ugly cliping across the walls used to cage them 2.2) Entering the cage to get the egg was more a fight against the geometry than anything else 2.3) To sum it all, good breeding was more about glitches to make the dinos stay where you want and the the eggs drop where you want... Many suggestios were given to improve the situation. Leashes being one simples and effective... Or anything regarding limiting the distance that the dino could roam from a point. 3) Dino command improvements? Any additions to customize the Tamed Dino behavior? ( stay out of combat while health is low, etc ) 4) Dino AI improvements? Having to constantly count your pack to check if any dino stayed behind "glitched" in a rock, a tree or whatever was really, REALLY annoying. 5) Building improvements? We have a better building system or we still have to rely on glitches ( some might insist to call it "technique" ) to build something better than a cubic structure? Thanks in advance!
  7. Single player question

    6 months ago i had no problems doing that. Switched characters between Scorched Earth and The Island very ofen. Switched items and dinos once.
  8. ARK Digest Q&A!

    Talk a little about PRIMAL SURVIVAL.
  9. ARK Primal Survival

    Dude... I'm crazy about this mod too... But with the amount of information that we have about Primal Survival, I don't think it was a wise decision... It's a small mod of an EA game of a small team... Development priority of Primal Survival os probabily very low. The WS team was at an event in late Feb ( Twitter logs ), everything will be delayed for a week or two. I dont mind the delays... Releasing a game too early demands a lot of time solving player issues and explaning what is the meaning of "playing an unfinished product". But I agree that they should update their release dates. Jen ( a member of the team ) said somewhere ( i dont know where too ) it was delayed... But every official source still says "late feb".
  10. Need Tips of what to do in SP

    I see... But trap is exactly what i see as glitchy. Only works because of poor AI and odd gameplay mechanics...
  11. Need Tips of what to do in SP

    Funny, as you wrote this I was trying to building something... I play on Ps4 ( no mods, even Pri+ ), my last base was a cube, I'm trying to improve it to something that is not only a storage room... It already took me 6 hours between gathering and fighting the snap points... But would be a new hobby, as you suggested =P A lot to improve, and figured out that my own artistic vein is a little off.

  12. How many players on the PS4?

    Split Screen drops the FPS by a little, less noticeably on a PS4 Pro. Theres a limit of around 500 meters of distance that player 2 can be from player 1... But it was never a problem for me. Keep in mind that this can be frustrating for some... If player 1 dies, player 2 will be teleported to player 1 respawn point. I also play with my GF, since shes not used to games as I, her tolerance for frustrations is far lower =P If your case is the same, let her play as player 1. But... if she playes as player 1, the "world save state" will be kept in her account... Enough of cons... Splitscreen Ark is a lot of fun. While most games are overlooking this feature, Ark is at least trying. Local splitscreen also means no lag, no ping... The game runs much better. If you configure your game difficult right ( I can help with that, PM me if needed ), you can get rid of some grind that is not meant for singleplayer since the game time only passes when you are playing, while online is real time. And sharing despair, joy, fear, satisfaction of a survival game with someone that is next by your side is an experience that should never be overlooked.
  13. How many players on the PS4?

    Played on both... With a high end PC graphics is much better... Also, i really miss the shortcuts that the keyboard provides. Ps4 also don't provide mod support. However in the end I bought Ark for PS4 mainly for the SplitScreen. I don't play online much, but i check the servers from time to time. At dawn ( when i play ) most servers i see are at 50% to 100% capacity.
  14. Need Tips of what to do in SP

    Thanks for the reply! I agree with all the pros of online gaming... But I have some fatal problems with online gaming: 1) Ping... I can't get pings below 200ms 2) Time... I play SP with 5x harvest and breeding rates... And the grind is huge already. And because of my work, sometimes I need to travel for 1 or 2 weeks... So I don't think i could handle online ark. 3) In PVP ppl exploit all kind of gameplay odds, glitches and bugs... Most of the times variety is killed due only few playstyles being viable. Onion building, for example... And since a great part of the game become destroying what others built, the grind factor raises a lot.
  15. Need Tips of what to do in SP Hello, I'm playing Scorched Earth singleplayer for a month now. I want to take a break from all the breeding, but I'm a little out of ideas... I don't wanna go to take down ( tame/milk ) wyverns yet... Most methods to take them down solo seems a little buggy now. Also, I've visited a cave in early game. Don't know the name, but it's the one you access in a narrow ravine. It was a little... Short? And, at the time, I got a little angry because my Saber got stuck and vanished after awhile. Maybe give another try to explore caves? They all are short as the one i visited? They are all buggy? Go to The Island or The Center to explore underwater world?
