  1. I wish I could upvote this comment... I feel very deceived because Wildcard made it out to seem like they gave a poop about Fear Evolved and Raptor Claus. I will also take everything in the Q&A with a grain of salt, because they've outright lied in the Q&A before (Go look at the old Q&A's, many "yes we're going to add that" with no mention or no inclusion on the subject afterwards) I really do hope all the missed events means that Wildcard has been spending this time optimising so that a 6gb GTX 1060 can manage a stable 30 frames in 1440p resolution. This game has the worst optimization I've seen. ARK is the only game I own that doesn't run well in 1440p. The fact that the XB 1 X is only doing 30 FPS/1440p @ 'High' pc equivalent settings is proof of that. 30 FPS is terrible -borderline unplayable- and when it comes to ARK, 30 FPS locked is going to have dips into the low 20's in populated bases and in areas with lots of dinos. How is this acceptable?

    "soft"? Not to derail the thread, but how exactly do you trick a VAC ban? Sounds like a million dollar question to me TBH

    Yeah I could see that happening on Playstation but not on PC. There's too much of a market for computers and computer games to be banned for using racial slurs on PC. It's not like a playstation that only cost 200 or 300 bucks for a new one.

    Are you sure about this? I have met hundreds of people on Steam that use the N word all the time even on their profiles and in their name and afaik have never been banned. I think you have to be doing something worse than just using racial slurs to get a VAC ban. And as far as the topic goes, /whisper /ignore and /report should have been implemented into the game a long time ago. Would stop the annoying people that spam chat trying to demand peoples' attention with capital letters and swear words

    It's doubtful. What Wildcard really needs to do is suck up their pride and accept the fact that they're going to need to create human NPC AI for the Vanilla experience. After Conan fixed their AI, utilising Thralls and fighting NPCs became an enjoyable experience. Even Minecraft has 'human' NPCs and villages, which add a ton of replayability to the game. When I was a kid playing Minecraft, I would begin the game by rushing to find a NPC village to build in and build a wall around. I spent hours making Castle towns out of the villages and building huge forts. I've had some good times in ARK with the dinos but I would enjoy being able to go to a village and trade with NPCs or kill them idc something. Dossiers talking about these old tribes and survivors yet we never see or meet any of them. It's a damn shame
  6. When I think of Vampirism and Lycanthropy being done right in a RPG game, The Elder Scrolls 3 Morrowind comes to mind. Here's an example of what Lycanthropy does in TES3, taken from the elder scrolls wikia Vampirism has a bit more complicated of an explanation, but I still think it's worth sharing.

    ARK: Aberration Expansion Pack Announced!

    Linux version has been screwed up since ever. I doubt they have plans to fix the Linux version anytime soon. There have been many complaints about it not running or functioning properly on Linux over the past year and nothing has been done. Also, they don't need to add the SE engrams to the Island. You can just take your character to Scorched Earth and learn the Engrams there, then on your other ARK you can build and place the Wind Turbines normally. You just probably will have to get some of the resources from Scorched Earth beforehand. The main reason I doubt that SE engrams will make it to the Island is because it's missing a lot of the required resources. (both figuratively and literally)

    ARK: Aberration Expansion Pack Announced!

    This new DLC screams Pitch Black to me. I hope that we can transfer from/to this ARK at some point or another. I wouldn't mind temporarily being trapped on the new ARK but I would be very disappointed if transfers in/out are impossible. Would love to use the wing suit on The Center and Ragnarok

    Mods on Ark PS4 (and Xbox)

    I asked numerous times on this forum for mod support on consoles. The best answer I've gotten is that Sponsored Mods might make it to console. I got fed up and bought a new computer and now I no longer have that problem. I don't think they have the time or resources to add mod support to consoles right now; and considering how the mods are all on the Steam Workshop, I don't know how that would be implemented in the first place. I'm skeptical that even the Sponsored Mods will make it to Consoles, and if they do it might be implemented in a way similar to how we got primitive plus and the center.

    Skyrim in Ark?

    Maybe OP should try Dark and Light. Dark and Light is similar to Skyrim, ARK not so much. When OP finds Dark and Light he'll probably just go for that since it seems more like his cup of tea. Now, add first person and breeding/mutations to Dark and Light and I will consider playing it over ARK. I love the concept pf Dark and Light and the fact that there are npcs/villages/quests but no breeding or platform saddles kills it for me.
  11. Fantastic Dossier. Looking forward to the 29th
  12. This would not work very well. Trust me, I know. On PC when playing with a controller before one of the more recent updates, you'd have to use the cursor instead of the selection box that consoles have. It was very bad. If you own the PC version there is no point in playing with a controller, even with the update that removed the awful cursor.

    Community Crunch 98: Gold Master Edition

    Dark and Light has it's downfalls. One of them being no breeding, this mechanic is part of what makes ARK fun and Dark and Light lacks it. Also Dark and Light has no first person view, maybe that's for the better but I realised how much of a luxury good first and third person animations are after playing Dark and Light. I really couldn't play much of Dark and Light after I bought my first horse, its flaws showed there most of all. Dark and Light is very early access and needs a lot of work in all departments. Dark and Light badly needs optimisation. I can run ARK at higher than 30 frames and Epic on my laptop, I also have a g-sync screen so drops below 30 are not very noticeable for me. With Dark and Light, it takes at least 10 minutes to launch the singleplayer game and even with new hardware you may lose a few frames in the starter cities. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with Dark and Light, it's a good game. Dark and Light just feels different than ARK, and you can only gather that by putting some time into it yourself.

    ARK: State of the Game

    I hope the game is released on the appropriate platforms on time. Now it's not going to affect me or bother me, but I believe there will be a bit of an uproar if you go back on what has been stated at E3. I'm obviously underestimating the situation when I say "a bit". I guess we shall see how things goes.
