      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.

  1. Anky angle of attack issues

    Anky has issues mining crystal, metal, flint, stone, you name it. tail swings right through most nodes until you get the node at exactly the right angle with the camera positioned in a certain way. It is very difficult to mine on aberration due to this and could use some work please. Don't take my word for it, try it yourself.
  2. Dire wolves are a pack hunter, this it makes sense for them to ball up on you. A lone t-Rex would struggle with killing a large group of 5ft tall 10ft long wolves shredding its legs until it can't walk. Giga's? Well, giga's are a "tribe tame" so domesticated and wild ones should be terrifying.
  3. Therizi is useful for collecting wood, fiber, berries, raw meat, (very) small amounts of thatch, and the hopes and dreams of noobs running around on the beach. As you are playing single player building wise a deod, a therizi, and an anky are like 90% of your dino force. Anky for thatch and metal, therizi for berries and wood, and deod for stone collecting. After that, everything else is just preferential imho. In all reality it comes down to what you want to do, and what you are willing to endure to arrive there.
  4. You are a game tester

  5. How to survive to titanoboa (snake)

    Get yourself somewhere around 120% movespeed. At which point it's easy to circle scorpions and snakes. I enjoy hacking snakes and scorpions to death with a sword. It's also very easy to poke them to death with a pike as mentioned above. Once you get pretty much any mount they are easy to murder. Happy hunting broski.
  6. this game is far from release trust me...

    If you died in the water near your shark it ate your corpse and the bag goes to the bottom. This has been the way of things forever. As for the pelican, I have no idea so I defer to the previous answer of "drops health while not close to it." Even with all the bugs, all the lag, all the frustration Ark has an appeal that transcends these issues for those who love it. The hours played is testament to that fact. Dust yourself off, nothing you had is not replaceable. Just don't drown yourself next time. P.s. Did you check your sharks inventory? It may have all your gear.
  7. Populations in the ecosystem

    They became huge areas of nothing but trikes. Typically the entire grassy plains south, and west (prior to the swamp being there) of the green would end up just miles and miles of trikes.
  8. But, you haven't added it yet right? Tek teir isn't in the game right? Saying we haven't added it, and saying we haven't finished it are two very different things. Saying, "I meant we aren't done with it yet guys. I'm sorry, chill out." Is not too difficult I do not believe. I make myself apologize to my daughter all the time when I say something to her I didn't mean. And I'm the one paying for her existence. We the players are the ones paying for the developers, moderators, gms, and everyone else who gets a check from Wildcard's existence at this and every other point along the line. So in that thought, picking at someone's grammar, making backhanded comments about your own failure to type what you mean, and anything else that's not an apology is pure adolescent pride. In conclusion, no one should ever feel the need to not apologize. An apology is the basis for forgiveness. And when information is misleading or flat out deceptive (see quoted post) an apology is required from the offending party. I personally would like to see @Casanova explain what he meant by his original post on this thread. Because from all perspectives outside the dev/moderator perspective he flat out lied. And thus, owes the community an apology.
  9. Gratz, with 6 eggs hatching you're going to have to get milk from an alpha wyvern, or trap two milkers every threeish hours. Are you playing on official? Or single player?
  10. Upcoming Patch v256 Discussion Thread

    Tried to read through this mess. Makes my eyes crossed.
  11. What's your colours?

    It's true. God. Oh god it's like being inside a Willy Wonka factory room full of dinosaurs.
  12. My wyvern ate me

    I guess you got baptized in the fires of wyvern ownership
  13. Quick Ovis Question.

    Obelisks (easiest to spot at red do to topography), oasis in the dunes( more rare but they do appear), just bring cakes and salt.
  14. Scorched Earth: Creature Ideas?

    I was so hoping the Phoenix would be a boss, and then when it died it would pop out a bunch of feathers that could be picked up and "raised" in similar fashion to a wyvern for your very own Phoenix mount. One feather per person like the artifacts. Only raisable and rideable by the person who picked it up. Much like the tek armor only useable by people who have bested the boss.
