  1. Great news on the further content I was a bit worried as ATLAS does not look like my cup of tea. On the exception to the pick up rule can we get a server option to get rid of those or just not have those as exceptions as I often find myself putting some of those very Items in bad places and would love to be able to pick them up and readjust as oppose to rebuilding a whole new tek generator or industrial forge.

    Not able to summon Broodmother/Goriila/Dragon

    Bump. ARK devs any info on this?
  3. Having played ark for the past 2 years or so on xbox I feel some of the mechanics of the game that are designed to add another hurdle to jump have created bigger problems. Granted the hurdles are designed to motivate players to act in specific way and to add an incentive or penalty to a certain method of play especially on official and I would like to see server options to by pass those hurdles. Stack Numbers First off stacks or how the game stacks several pieces of the same item. I would love a server option to set how high i can stack items. Often on high resource servers I run out of inventory space before I hit weight limits because what I'm farming stacks to very low numbers. This is especially annoying when fighting alphas in the ocean. My killing blow gathers all the prime fish meat (~1500) but it does not pick up the tools and armor he dropped so I have an inventory full of fish meat and prime and I have to go to the sea floor and pray I find the bag he created on death to get the reward for killing the Alpha. Another reason to make this a server option is that a good portion of the steam mods are devoted to stack mods and seeing that should be enough reason to add this option to a server list. Finally some of the resources and their stack limits are extremely frustrating and make high level blueprints impossible to build. Making the stacking options as a server option also brings that utility to console whom do not have the use of mods. Apex Breeding Second on my list would be a server option to allow the breeding of the apex creatures like the wyvern and griffin (not to mention the Basilisk and Rock drake). I feel these creatures should be breedable if the server admin wants them to be. It also makes the wyvern more important and less up to chance to find a good breeding pair to get tat amazing super wyvern. Also color mutations, I would love to breed for those as opposed to hatch a pretty Rock Drake that is only level 25. Again several mods on steam make this possible but I would love to see it as a server option so even console player can use it. Dedicated Server Clustering Finally can we please get a way to cluster dedicated servers or at the very least give us back the upload character button. The fact that you can only play one map on a dedicated server unless you want to start a new character every time you move is ridiculous. Allow us to cluster dedicated servers both console and pc versions. I should not have to rent a server from Nitrado to have one character be able to move freely from map to map. If Wildcard would add these server options i believe it could go along way to getting some players back especially those that see the official servers and want no part of that mess. Dedicated and private servers should be a valid way to play the game on all platforms.

    Character Upload problem for Dedicated server

    Thank you for the reply I was beginning to doubt any information coming my way at all. So your saying only Nitrado, Steam and of course Official servers are able to cluster this makes me think the upload character button/process isn't broken so much as its being withheld. Anyways I found a solution to my problem to anyone that wants to transfer characters on Windows 10 dedicated servers. First off before you try this load up the map you want to move to on the dedicated server this creates a save folder in the new map. 1. If you look in the folder where Windows 10 installs ARK ("User name"/appdata/local/packages/studiowildcard(string of number)/localstate/saved/maps) 2. In the maps folder in the map you are playing on are a set of files with a .arkprofile file extension. These are your character saves for the map. You can open them with notepad and look around to find out which file belongs to who. 3. When you find the file of the characters you want copy it and then go to the new map folder (the save folder of the map you want to go to) and paste it in there and Voila! Your character is now in the new map and better yet you have a copy in the other ark as well that can send dinos back and forth to each other and Imprint buffs work across both characters (I tested it on a Raptor). Now it is important to note I only took the .arkprofile file over and didn't mess with the tribe profile files. When you join the server you will be at the spawn screen just click to spawn where you want and you will re spawn as your character. If you want to maintain the illusion of moving characters over you can delete the .arkprofile and the .profilebak in the old map save folder and if you want to go back or update your original just copy and paste to the folders and your characters should be updated. Hope this helps anyone else.
  5. I am currently running aberration as a dedicated server on my computer (Windows 10 cross play version) and play on my xbox. However I want to move to Ragnarok and want to upload my character and some of my creatures. Now when i go to the beacons or even the obelisks I have no session in my cluster thus I cant upload my character. I have some bred dinos that have the imprint buff on them and I really don't want to lose that nor them nor do I feel like going to Ragnarok and just starting from scratch. So how do I upload my character without seeing any other servers in my cluster. If not possible how do I get my computer to see other servers.Also is the upload character button going to be put back in? I have looked around and found no real answers to this issue or the info was dated to sometime last year and I am looking for some current information. Any help would be appreciated.

    breedable griffins

    Yes agreed. I would just love to see a server option that allows the Apex dinos (Wyvern, Basilisk, Griffin etc) to be breedable. That way public servers don't have it enabled and thus don't start complaining about OP wyverns wrecking their bases and the private servers can do what they want and breed Griffins and Wyverns for eternity . Plus color mutations on a Griffin? Yes please. I know PC has mods out the whazoo for this but I as a console player would love to see some support for this to come our way.

    Center TLC

    Yes agreed the center needs some TLC. Adding in the Dragon as a weekly spawn event would be cool have it spawn in the volcano on dead island or somewhere else and just allow all the players to fight it. PVE gets old because there is no real threat after a point add a dragon spawn every so many days then PvE gets a bit more interesting. Might be cool to do the same on Ragnarok with the Spider or Gorilla. Abberation stuff in the underground part of the center would make me go back and i would posit that to make it on par with Ragnarok it needs 2 unique dinos much like Ragnarok has the Griffin and Ice Wyvern. The center needs some unique dinos to attract players back becuse all i see now are Ragnarok and Abberation map servers with the other sprinkled in small amounts. It feels like the center got the short end of the stick because it was first and now needs to be bought up to the level of Ragnarok.

    ARK Digest Q&A! (no longer accepting questions)

    Two questions. First off would it be possible to make a server option that lets us breed the apex dinos (wyvern, rock drake, griffin, etc). I know on computer there are mods for this but as a console player I would love to see this make its way to us. Secondly can we please have a stacking configuration setting on the server set up? This would all ow us to set how high a item stacks until it starts a new stack. A simple check box that has vanilla stack options if unchecked a scroll bar below it has a slide to mark how high you want all items in the game to stack. Again PC has a mod for this but us console people are stuck with honey only stacking in groups of 1 along with prime meet and so many more important things. This artificial number constraint is not fun and I don't know how many times I have lost loot from a alpha kill because all the prime meat in stacks of 1 took up my inventory space. Also Im sure it would save memory space if the raw meat along with organic polymer all stacked up to say 500 or 1000 instead of having icons and stuff for 50 stacks of 10 polymer or 30 stacks of 1 prime meat. It would also let some of those outrageous blueprints manageable if I can stack things up to 500 maybe I can build that snazzy ravager saddle instead of wishing there was a forge animal on aberration like a beaver or Thorny Dragon with high weight. On console I spend half my time emptying my inventory of crap I dont want because I have so many stacks to go through . Please make this an option .Please? On another note do you guys think you could release some smaller mods in a more regular fashion as opposed to these big maps that are incomplete and still full of bugs. Like a stack or armor mod or dino armor mod would should be easy to test and able to be distributed as free micro dlc every couple of months depending on whats going on behind the scenes. This would be a good way to keep the player base engaged if a new month meant a new micro mod and every 5-6 we get a new map or big mod plus micro-mod. Just an idea.

    Windows 10 / Play Anywhere - Closes on Start Up

    So yeah this (Crash to desktop from splash screen) has been happening to me quite often recently. The only thing that works is to delete Scorched earth and then re download it but that's a 5 gb download every few days to play on a dedicated server for a couple of hours. It seems to act up after I play games on steam also the xbox live app on windows won't let me sign out when ever ark is acting up not sure if these are related but once I see one problem I know the other is there. Any info on a fix or an update would be amazing.

    Dino TLC: Feedback! Suggestions?

    So here are some suggestions I would like to see all the fliers get the dive speed buff like the griffin but minus the dive bomb it would add strategy to fliers in a dog fight and sooth over the speed discrepancy between that causes the Argey and other fliers to just be outclassed by the griffin. A diving argy is quick and fast but if he hits the ground he goes splat and when he pulls out of the dive he is starts to slow down. Araneo -should be able to build large web traps that can help trap bigger dinos the more Araneos you use. For hard they are to tame they need to have a must have utility. Bats- should have an echo detection ability that lets them see through a Rock Drakes cloak and alerts you to any sneaking enemies nearby. Maybe allow it to attactch to you and act like a living wing suit. Beezlbufo- can we make its cement gathering proc on all insects. Gets really tiresome when on some maps small insects are few and far between but there is a scorpion every 2 feet that yields no cementing paste but tons of chititn. Would help that cementing grind bit Lymantria -can I please get an attack for the moth. I was so excited when I saw the moth and they are so pretty but have so little use and you have to un away fro Titanomyra when your on them because you have no offensive attack. Seriously? I want my Mothra to darken the skies and bring fear.....or at least be able to bite the flying ants back I'll settle for that. Anklyo can we get metal and obsidian weight reduction extended to metal structures Doed stone and crystal weight reduction extended to stone structures Dimorphodon can we get a perch system for dimorphodons like they fly out and look for stuff then come back after a bit with maybe some meat or rare resources or even small eggs. can also use them as watch dogs that just swarm anything that gets to close then come right back once its out of range. Would be great to be able to put all birds on this setting and then get resources from them Ichtyornis get prime fish Featherlight get mushrooms and gem like that Stego- can we get something like a troop carrier for smaller dinos for the stego like you tell a dimorphodon a lystra and bulbdog to get on the stegos back. Now when the stego gets attacked they jump off and help it fight when the threat is gone they get back on. It would also be very useful in moving all your little dinos to new bases as well. Could even be used for babies with none of the bonuses of course. Parasaur- can they get like a really loud hornsound that increases the speed stat as like a flee mechanic. Also make it so it can sound off if a predator comes into range and its at your base or even sound off when a baby hatches. Make the alarm system of the player. Mammoth- needs a platform saddle also can it make a sound like the parasaur but that buffs defense kinda like a call to arms. Maybe even add a to me mechanic if put on watch where neutral dinosaurs will run to it to get the buff then attack what it alerted on. Trike make it a siege engine give it a high tier saddle that has two catapults or such on it to fire at bases. maybe even a tek saddle that has 2 guns on it. Or a mobile shield generator 3 other things I would love a dino to be an organic fabricator. Not sure which one fits the bill but it would be nice to have one for those schematics we get. Also can all of the apex creatures please be breedable (Wyvern, Rock Drake, Griffin Basilisk). Make it a server option. I want to breed wyverns while on console...please. Finally can we get more saddle options like armor for our battle mounts and such or even just make ramshackle and such saddle seem to have more armor. For instance a journeyman armor has metal plates covering certain areas while an ascendant saddle has spikes and metal plating everywhere. This way I can tell the armor and have a reason to lool for 235 ascendant armor when i already have 235 ramshackle Sorry for the wall of text.
