    Life finds a way...

    I think you’re right, but aren’t “stygimoloch” and “dracorex” synonymous with pachycephalosaurus? I could be wrong, but I feel like I read that once. If that’s the case, it wouldn’t make sense to add a creature already in the game.

    Probably just a reference to the movie, but fingers crossed I’m wrong! Maybe a sneak peek at the next dlc? That pachy looks really cool regardless

    Happy Birthday ARK: Year Three!

    Happy Birthday to one of my favorite games!

    Ichthyornis AKA “The Trash Bird”

    Removing a creature from just one map isn’t the same as removing it from the game altogether. That’s something they’ve never done.

    Ichthyornis AKA “The Trash Bird”

    They’re frustrating at first, but easy enough to spot and avoid. I just don’t take anything of value if I’m going down the beach, or I ride a fast mount. As for the early game, yes they’re pesky, but they’re easy to kill with a bola/bow and good aim.

    The Center: Dead, TLC needed, or Good as is?

    I totally forgot that I’d posted on this thread lol. Anyway, I’ve since changed my mind regarding Aberration content on the Center: I think the underworld should be changed to look like the bioluminescent areas on Aberration, but maybe with less water? So it looks more like a glowing forest than a glowing marsh. I still think that there shouldn’t be too many Aberration creatures; some of the less sci-fi looking ones (shinehorn, lantern bird, glowtail lizard) would be right at home, if only in the underworld/bio area.

    Extinction: Confirmed and Hypothese

    Well afaik the only info is the following: It’s set on Earth, and there will be Dodorexes outside of holiday events (according to 1 of the digests). As for what I’d like to see, more prehistoric animals could be great, but it depends on the map’s vibe. What I definitely want are mutant variations of Earth animals; since this is far in the future maybe some have evolved naturally, or because of element leaks/overseers. New building materials for structures would be awesome as well. What I’m looking forward to the most is more of the story. I can’t wait to explore the ruins (hopefully there’ll be some epic ones!); and find out the true nature of the arks and who built them.

    Too much spikes!

    Here are some pics of an Ankylo, a turtle, and a Doed. These are a lot closer to the real things than Ark portrays them.

    Too much spikes!

    While the dinosaurs did have spikes to some degree irl, they had nowhere near as many as they do in Ark.

    Too much spikes!

    I agree that the spikes are (currently) unnecessary, both in terms of esthetics and functionality. Maybe they should make it so, like the Kentro, spiked creatures reflect a small percentage of melee damage dealt to them (including attacks from other dinos). The Ankylo dossier even says: “RECKLESS CARNIVORES ARE JUST AS LIKELY TO HURT THEMSELVES ON ANKYLOSAURUS’ SPIKES, AS THEY ARE TO GET HIT BY ITS TAIL.” Giving these spikes an actual purpose is less time-consuming than updating the models altogether. That said, they could look really cool and realistic without all the spikes.

    How do I make 24-hour day/night cycle?

    Lol didn’t even think of using that page. Thank you very much @DarthaNyan!
  12. Hi! I‘m on ps4, and I’m trying to set up a singleplayer world (on the island) with a real time, 24-hour day/night cycle. What I want is a 12 hour day and a 12 hour night (both real time). I‘d like day-time to start at I know that 1 minute in-game is 2 seconds real time. I also know that the lower the value (on either the day time speed or the night time speed slider), the longer the day/night. Anyone with a better math brain than me know what value to put in both? Thanks in advance, and my apologies if the answer is already out there, I honestly couldn’t find anything that helped me. P.S. I wasn’t sure which forum to put this in, my apologies if it belongs somewhere else.

    Most Used Creature (Any Map)

    Probably Equus, I love horses irl and they’re pretty useful mounts early on.

    title-screen choice

    +1, there’s no reason why this shouldn’t be a feature. Also, why is the center the only map not to have its own logo? I know it’s not being worked on anymore, but it just frustrates me that my favorite map (aesthetically) is literally the only one without a logo.

    You wanna tell me your source(s) for that? Aside from that, I kinda agree with @Weiss in that it’s basically a living feeding trough, which imo isn’t a very useful niche. I suggest that it serves as a egg-incubator, it can be commanded to sit on top of an egg and keep it at the right temperature. That could be a little OP though, maybe it should be harder to tame than you suggested. There could also be some exeptions to what it can incubate: not wyvern or drake eggs (due to the temp requirements being to much for the maiasaur), it also can’t incubate eggs too large too sit on (gigant eggs, bronto eggs, etc). Additionally, it could serve as a feeding trough, but towards pregnant animals as opposed to babies, the maiasaur will keep the gestating female at full food, while sacrificing its own hunger (but at a lower pace than the pregnant creature, otherwise it wouldn’t be worth taming). Just some more ideas, not saying yours are bad, simply stating my own.
