  1. So what did you do in ARK today?

    It was a good weekend, there are 5 of us now in the tribe and we are splitting our efforts; One guy is building up and SE base and taming Jerboas etc and he occassionally pops back and works on our (inbuild)swamp/snow base. 2 others are actively taming and imprinting on Rex's and anything else that they come across - think their goal this week is for a nice Giga but we can wait and see the outcome of that. My tribeleader is currently offline due to Irma but he got on for a while over the weekend whilst he stayed with the in-laws. He is our builder and we completed our Industrial forge this weekend to go with the industrial cooker. We have placed a number of metal walls and floors to see what it looks like with out metal framed windows - the base is coming along quite nicely. Me, well... I'm the resource guy, I get the metal, wood and stone and anything else we require. I also hatched a pair of twin argies at 230 (imprinted them to 74%) even though the first 50% maturation took 15hrs, the second 50% was done in 9hrs - can anyone explain why that would be? I lost out on an imprint due to that. Nevertheless, they came out with 4k hp, 800 weight and 400+ melee. Not bad really. Completed 2 caves on the new server now and donning the artefacts of the Cunning and Immune. It wont be long until we get back to the South Ice Cave and get the Skylord one which we also got on our legacy server. So it was quite a progressive weekend as it goes but we wont progress much this week as I am too busy so ill keep the food topped up and that is about it. Hoping for another 2x next weekend.
  2. Most Creative Dino Names

    Named one of our Argies 'Air Force Once' once... cant remember why. Weve had a lot of random names but I like my new Otter's name - Tails!

    Sorry to hear your pain Aushegun. I don't trust myself to be focused when out and about killing so I always use a set of weapons/tools a level down from my best - I know that I will lose them otherwise I hope your luck improves... as I hope mine does with my beacon drop loot hunting tonight
  4. Whats the point?

    Exactly, and 'fun' is different to everyone. For me, I like finding new BP's from loot beacons or cave drops. I also like the challenge in getting mutations from my breeding. I have fun, it might not be fun for everyone, and if it isnt fun, do what we all do when we get bored with a game - go play another and maybe try it again in a few months time.
  5. So what did you do in ARK today?

    Last night was one of those evenings where I wasn’t planning on much – but oh how that changed when the wife at the moment said ’I’m actually off out tonight’. I still wasn’t overly motivated to do much since my tribe mates are still AFK after Irma but this is what I ended up doing… We have moved up to the cliff base now, most dinos are sitting on the ground floor and flyers are for now on tier two – tier 3 has yet to be unveiled. I was getting rather frustrated with the storage in the base even with 14 Large storage shelves (how can they only contain 45 items!!). So, as everyone had just dropped items here there and everywhere – my OCD had got to a point where I myself was having colour mutations. 2hrs! That is what it took for me to sort all Saddle BP’s, Armour BP’s, Building BP’s, All crafted items and Resources (like Crystal, Stone, Metal, Wood etc). Now, I am used to prim+ and my first thought was safes as these are fairly small, and don’t take up too much space. I smash out 3 new safes and go to place one – Oh, my! These things don’t fit particularly in situ with anything – hideous! But for 150 storage, I take the pain and place 3 in a row against the back wall. At least most things are now easily accessible… don’t get me wrong, there are still another 9 storage cupboards to replace but these can be placed on tier 2 – out of the way J During this time, 2 tribe mates had logged on and started raising the new born rex and bear – they were on a 24hr mission to try and imprint to a decent lvl – this isn’t even 2x taming but they wanted to – crazy I know! I did venture out for a few gold drops and 1 cave run but nothing decent had dropped but all in all, I do feel better about our storage situation. Tonight will be similar I feel but possibly I will harvest more resources. Oh, and the Otters… I checked our 3 Otters and was thinking that I could start my breeding programme – but they are all female L Oh well, maybe tomorrow!
  6. This is the part which I find most useful. So in essence, getting an extra 50 points in a certain stat post tame is a fairly good possibility with wild tame dinos? Im happier using Dodorex rather than downloading tools so thanks for this insight
  7. So what did you do in ARK today?

    Congratulations. I never seem to fininsh a server, always distract myself by starting a new server and I end up progressing to about the 3rd cave and we start something else... one day I will get there
  8. "Easy" Spawn areas

    I started a SP game recently whilst waiting for the new server, I started on the island on an easy section of beach. Literally got to lvl 3 and a 145 Rex walked on by and proceeded to eat me. You learn just to keep on trying and levelling up - once you hit lvl 10 (which doesnt take long) you will have enough HP to survive in that area. You will die a few times but persevere. Get a hut up behind some rocks, dont venture too far, make spears, picks and axes and just lvl up. It becomes easier
  9. Ok, thanks for that. Ill have a look at ARK Smart breeder - shame its not a google play store app, as I would have liked to have spent a bit of time here at work figuring it out but nevermind, Ill wait until later. At least this post has given me some rough numbers to aim for, which I am happy with. My only other breeding lines I ever create are bears - so I will look for a similar approach (what numbers to aim for). Thanks again
  10. Ok, so do you increase its lvl from whatever you tamed it from and what it came out as i.e. from 145 up to 211 in the calculator? Do you then add 50 points to a stat and work that out as a stat you are happy to work with? Im not sure where this 50 points comes from.
  11. Ok, so we know that in the wild, 150 is the max and that all dino's have base stats. Now, not taking into consideration any mutations, where can I find what the max for a dino's HP or Stam stat could be? For example, Im going to start a Pterandon line on my new server (got quite far with my last breeding in my legacy server but decided to start again). Ive found a 150 male with 480 stam... theoretically, could there be a Ptera in the wild at 150 which has all points in Stam like 800 stam and literally hardly any points in the other stats. The reason I am asking is that I have my good set of birds for breedding, HP, Stam and Melee. Realistically, I don't want to keep taming more birds if I have 0.5% chance of finding a bird with more than my 480 Stam. I am happy just to ineterbreed between the three, trying for mutations over and over again. Current stats on my birds (tamed at 145 or 150) HP - One has 1400 HP (Average I believe) Stam - One has 480 (High I believe) Melee - One has 326 (High I believe) Does my question make sense? Also, I use Dodorex, but wanted to work out at which number, I stop looking for Pteras in the wild because I have already got a tamed one that is pretty much the highest a wild Ptera can get. Thanks for reading, and hopefully I'll get to thank you for helpful responses too.
  12. So what did you do in ARK today?

    Yes, I was ecstatic after logging on and finding him sitting there last night. I will be attempting some breeding this weekend as we have 3 now - none overly high lvl but just hoping for a few colour changes - an Albino one would be lovely. As for last night, I logged on after a long and tiring day so didnt have the motivation to do much. I went out on my bird and collected a few gold drops but wasnt getting anything overly nice. I then saw a blue drop with a gold ring that had been sitting near the base for a while so I thought I'd get it before logging off - wasnt expecting much and got some MC Ghillie Gloves and a Apprentice Fur Chest piece. This gave me a little motivation so I popped in the local cave (Artifact of the Cunning) and opened two containers - only got a journeyman sickle and a Journeyman Phioma Saddle. I then decided to massacre every living thing on my bear as I returned to base - feeling quite satisfied that my bear continues to cheer me up. I then dropped off my food into troughs, items in the containers - made sure everything was locked up, and logged off for the night. Nothing too amazing
  13. Bear traps

    Yes, we laid some traps outside a cave for some bears but never got a bear spawn with a reasonable level - our traps are still there are 3 days so you should be fine using them for a little defence.
  14. So what did you do in ARK today?

    Otters!! Colour mutated Otters! This leads nicely on what did I get up to on ARK today... I had for three days attempted to get me an Otter - my tribe mate had one and I was 'honestly' jealous. So I logged in last night and there before my eyes was a 125 Otter with my player char name on it!! I love my tribe mates. ALl in all, we had a good weekend with the 2x event. Our PVE server Official on Center has so far been fairly friendly, no real slagging matches so to speak but possibly not as nice as our legacy server was - it may just need some time for the real players to stand out. We now have 4 bases up and running. Our cliff base has started really well, mid jungles east coast and its got the fabricator, power gen, air con and industrial cooker etc. We have our starter pen down by the river but most of that is now just resource dinos as we moved everything up to what will be the main area on the cliff. I then last night (along with my new otter friend - called Tails) noticed a rather large pen (only two walls high currently) just round from the cliff where there is an open section between all the trees - I am guessing its going to be a place for Rex's, Spino's and Allo's but I could be wrong as I thought that was going to be down by the river front. We have also built an outpost in between the swamps and the snow biome so we can tame some different dinos without too much interference. There were a number of tames over the weekend, and with 6 of working tirelessly, we pretty much had all the resource gathering dinos we needed, and enough pairings of dinos for egg laying that we wanted i.e Stego's for Argies, and Scorpions for Rex's. Due to Hurricane Irma, Ive not spoken to the tribe leader for 17hrs now but Im fairly sure he will be ok - it will be nice to work out what the big pen is for... hopfeully find out tonight if he gets back online. Now my priority is to breed some Otters - they are the cutest thing since the ickle Rex I bred last month on my legacy server.
  15. Otters in The Center?

    Jungles mid on the eastern side. There is a river mouth here which looks out towards Blue Obelisk island. Around this inlet, the islands nearby and the beaches there, I have spotted in excess of 10. My tribe mate has one, but we have accidentally killed one when attacking an Alpha Megalodon from the shore and the Otter aggro'd (never understood why it aggro'd). Anyway, I've seen them on the beach, in the water and under that archway too. Good luck!
