    Dedicated Server Modding

    So subscribed means that it will need to be uploaded to Steam?
  2. Was just hoping for a quick answer. If I run a dedicated server and alter a dino ability, look, behavior, etc. How is that distributed to those playing on the server? Do they get the changes simply by logging in or do that need to add the mod manually? Thank you.

    Broken Structure Attachment

    Game is attaching foundations, pillars, ceilings, you name it at 45 degree angles. You put a ceiling next to another ceiling and it is tilted at 45. Place a pillar into a foundation and it come out at 45 instead of straight up. This is a new one. Never had this happen before.

    Engram Mods

    Looking for a mod that will adjust which engrams we start with. Does one exist that anyone knows of or is this something the dev kit can adjust at all? Thanks. P.S. Looking to do more than just alter the level they are available. Can do that in ini. Want to be able to change the note, torch, pick specifically.

    Whats your favorite map?

    I love the island. It has by far the most natural feel. The biomes make sense where they are and how they transition. Ragnorok and Center really feel blocky and less finished. Don't get me wrong, they are beautiful. I often tell people about Rag and Center they look like they were created by artists and not game designers. I also find a lot of geometry glitches on those two maps I don't find on Island or SE. If the Island was bigger and had Center's cave systems I would probably never leave.

    Megalosaurus Spawn Locations?

    We tamed all of ours in the southwestern cave. They walk or of there just fine. Might be careful if you have built anything in the cave as it may be affecting spawns.

    Spelunking! How NOT To get super rabies!

    Megaloceros are amazing as a mount vs onycs. Their antlers provide protection against flying enemies. They are also tough and have decent melee. The lesser antidote recipe is an unnecessary pain in the arse as some of its ingredients are difficult to farm and decay way to fast. 400hp for you, megaloceros, and a couple health pots and you can do any onyc, megalania cave safely save swamp and ice.

    I seriously hope they are ignoring the majority of the ungrateful crappy attitude posts in these Halloween threads. They are made by individuals that probably never say thank you when someone opens a door for them and responds to anything given to them with, "Is that all? " Maybe we should appreciate that we got an event at all with all these other issues people are screaming about on the forums that have to be fixed 'right now or I quit!'

    Halloween Event?

    Yes I too would like to complain when we don't get something and then I would like to complain some more when we do. So much fun complaining. Hey, I see something over there I haven't complained about yet... That sucks. I'm not sure yet what it is but I am quite sure it sucks none the less.
  11. So the game can be played: 1) Single player 2) Local dedicated/Rented dedicated 3) Official servers Watching the forums it seems almost all complaints are from #3. So it seems for all of the people enjoying the other 2 it is a great game. #3 can be described as an amazing game with server/player issues. As for the players on official servers, let's just put this in black and white. If WC didn't have to spend so much time dealing with the fact that so many players get off on being complete and utter a holes they could spend a lot more time fixing other things about the servers. So congratulations to those players, admit it or not, you are the reason a lot of stuff is taking so long to fix. Skyrim launched as a buggy, glitchy mess of crap that didn't work to horses flying through the air but where is it now? With the help of the modding community and some time the game will always be considered a genre defining classic. ARK is barely out of beta and I personally find that it is a pretty darn good game. I play on official servers but I also run 3 hosted dedicated servers for my community and I can attest that the game experience is completely different when you are not having to deal with hundreds of immature bullies that will spend their life dedicated to figuring out new ways to ruin things for everyone else. We want the official experience to get better faster? We want WC to be able to roll out actual bug fixes and server optimizations more quickly. How about we police ourselves and give them a break on having to figure out how to stop the latest basement Napoleon from locking a new customer in a cage and tormenting them because they couldn't find a puppy to kick. Let's just be real and accept the fact that the biggest 'bug' in ARK right now is the playerbase.

    Log off for two days. Myself and the members of my tribe are enjoying it. "You can please some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot please all of the people all of the time." Abraham Lincoln

    a simple request

    Yeah, don't agree with the OP at all. Enjoying the event and the challenge. Keeps the game interesting. Loving the items.
  14. I met alot of great people during betas and built alot of amazing characters and structures over the years. When it all ended we looked forward to our new adventures. I am glad people are getting their old saves back just remember, one who spends their life looking back to where they came from often misses the best parts of where they are going.

    Starting Engrams

    Anyone help with how to change which engrams you start the game with? I can change the level of any engrams but the torch, pick, and note are still free and open as soon as you start your character. I would like to set other engrams as the 'free' level 1s and take the defaults off. Thank you.
