  1. Good question. On Ragnarok it says “Tyrannogon” when you stand near one of the skeletons (although it could be the location rather than the skeleton), but then again Ragnarok isn’t canon. They were probably just experiments that the Arks destroyed. Maybe when Aberration was damaged the “spawning” mechanisms that create the creatures were affected, causing a few giant theropods to be released, until they eventually died (probably killed by the radiation). It is wierd that the skeletons are never once mentioned in the lore.
  2. Not sure about the inventory management, as I don’t use custom folders. As for your second question, yes. There are only a handful of official mods, but they are playable on console. There are 2 mod maps (the Center and Ragnarok) and 1 gamemode (Primitive +). The maps are part of the official server network; if you play singleplayer they’re unlocked after you ascend from one of the canon maps. As for Prim+, at the bottom right corner of the main menu screen are some options under “total conversion”. Just select “Primitive+“ to play it.
  3. 1. A few weeks, though I was getting info from the wiki and youtube. 2. It depends on whether you care about the story or not. Ragnarok is noncanon, as it doesn’t have any lore attached to it. If you want to follow the story, I’d start on the Island. Ragnarok is a great map though. 3. I love them all; Scorched Earth and the Center are the most beautiful imo, but they don’t have as much unique content as Aberration and Extinction. Also, if you like roleplay/immersion I recommend Primitive +
  4. I gotta recommend Aaron Longstaff, he’s got some amazing build videos.
  5. Basically a player with all/most stat upgrades gone towards crafting skill.
  6. Are you subscribed to xbox live gold? I’m pretty sure you gotta have it to play ark online. Edit: nvm apparently you don’t need xbox live for windows, my bad.
  7. You gotta click “join server” from the main menu.
  8. There are countless building tutorials on youtube. If you’re looking for tips on building a pvp base, search for that specifically, if you’re on pve/singleplayer than any build vid that looks nice you can use. Also you don’t have to copy the videos directly, you can use certain features from the vids in your own builds (for example, pillars in the corners of a build looks nice imo). Also, you can always go on singleplayer, put on creative mode, and test out the building mechanics.
  9. Snails already take less damage at the shell. Bats already have a chance of infecting with “Megarabies” when they bite. Why don’t you want dung beetles breedable? I understand why not the others, but why dung beetles?
  10. In the recent livestream by Wildcard, during the QnA segment, the devs flat out said there will be no ascencion added to Scorched Earth. I’m disappointed to say the least. Recently I’ve been attempting to beat the game, i.e. play all the canon maps and ascend off each one. Well I can’t really do that now. The devs’ reasoning was: “Scorched Earth is a finished project, and you can get the lore from the explorer notes anyway.” First of all, the dlc is barely worth the $20 at this point, considering you can get the same creatures (except for Phoenix), engrams and biomes on Ragnarok. As for the second point, I get that not every feature of the lore has to be in the base game, but ascension? Now, if people wanna follow Helena and the others through the story, they simply can’t. Plus, adding a final boss to Scorched Earth would push the max player level (including ascension-gained levels obviously) up to 150, instead of the current 135, which just makes much more sense. A cutscene would probably be just like the Island ascension cutscene, only traveling from Scorched to Aberration instead. I’m sure Gareth Coker wouldn’t mind making one last theme, even if not they can use the song by YouTube.com/NerdOut! Rant over. I think ascension would revive Scorched Earth a little bit, as players could get extra levels, and people trying to play the story would actually be able to do so. Hopefully the devs change their minds in the future. What does everyone else think of this news?
  11. I don’t think there’s an option for that, at least not on console. I didn’t know that, thanks.
  12. Either set “Difficulty” to 1.0 or check the “Max Difficulty” box.
  13. Max number of level-ups for any tame, regardless of whether it was bred or not, is 73.
  14. Are you planning on following the lore? In that case, this is the order in which you play the maps: The Island > Scorched Earth > Aberration > Extinction Here’s the order of the bosses: The Island: Spider > Megapithecus > Dragon > Overseer (after the overseer you’ll ascend to Scorched Earth) Scorched Earth: Manticore > unreleased tek boss (the map doesn’t have ascension or a final boss yet, presumably there will be in the future — as well as a cutscene that’ll take you to Aberration) Aberration: Rockwell Extinction: Forest Titan, Ice Titan, Desert Titan, King Titan The Center and Ragnarok are non-canon, but if you don’t care about the lore you can obviously play them. I’m not sure where they’d go in this order, probably in between The Island and Scorched Earth.
  15. The egg, since dinosaurs (and chickens) are descended from egg laying creatures. As for the op’s question, the wiki page for the island gives a list of all the creatures. Simply clicking on the link to a creature and scrolling to the bottom of the info box will tell you if it lays eggs or not. https://ark.gamepedia.com/The_Island
  16. Only explanations I have are that you either used console commands on an alpha raptor (they aren’t tameable legitimately) or it’s a pack boosted raptor. In the first case, it should be noticeably larger than a normal raptor, and in the second case it should only glow when you vocalize (i.e. hit r3 while riding it), and the other tamed raptors nearby (the wiki says 2 or more) should glow too (in a different color). How exactly did you tame it?
  17. In the final cutscene Helena comments on the sun rising, and if you pay attention you can see it move, which implies that the earth has regained it’s daily rotation thanks to the reseed protocol, so the “dark side” won’t be dark anymore by the time our characters get there. It could still have unique biomes and creatures resulting from centuries of darkness, but the map itself wouldn’t be dark.
  18. Like @DizzyDo said, I think nondedicated servers pause when you log off, worth testing with a campfire. Avoid conflict unless you have bolas; if the carnivores are too big you should probably move house. Herbivores, with only a few exceptions, don’t harvest resouces by themselves, you have to be riding them and attacking the resource node. Carnivores will gather resources by themselves but only from dead creatures. Here’s a wiki page that explains how whistle groups work: https://ark.gamepedia.com/Whistling If you can’t make fur clothes, level up your fortitude and keep a torch at hand. Fortitude and movement speed are good options to go for. You’re able to transfer your characters, tames, and items to different servers. You can’t, however, tranfer from your local game to an official server. Speaking of official servers, they’re the servers hosted by the game developers. Unofficial servers are hosted by players.
  19. My favorite moment was taming my 1st Pteranodon. Before, I’d been pretty much stuck near the spawn area, too afraid to venture anywhere, but when I tamed the Ptero the whole world opened up to me. I’d never felt so confident in Ark before; I’d intentionally start poop with Rexes and Brontos just to see them waddling over towards me, only to watch me fly away at top speed.
  20. I’m not sure what you mean, it makes sense that you have to create a new character for each map (unless you transfer your character via one of the obelisks) but you shouldn’t have to create a new character every time you log on to the same map. i.e. moving from the island to the center will force you to create a new character unless you upload your character to one of the obelisks first.
  21. You can get either the main game + season pass, or the explorer pack. I’m not sure what the price difference is; I know the season pass comes with a bunch of cosmetics; not sure if there are any other differences. I personally bought the survivors pack, which was the main game + scorched earth, then bought the other 2 dlcs independently (which I don’t recommend; I should have bought the season pass instead). I don’t think the survivors pack is still for sale, I could be wrong though.
  22. I’d say the Island. It has a story, 4 boss fights, and ascension. Ragnarok and the Center are great, but neither of them have any story or ascension, and only one boss fight each. Scorched Earth, Aberration, and Extinction are fun maps, but pretty hard to start out on. I haven’t beaten the final boss on the Island yet so I can’t really say whether it can be done solo or not, I’d imagine you could with enough preparation. Primitive+ is great if you like building, and you can always use mindwipe tonic to reset you engram points if you run out, but if you wanna kill all the bosses and ascend it’s gonna be pretty dang hard.
