  1. Never had that happen to me. But, as a rule I never ever log off unless I go into sleep mode on a bed inside a locked base structure. Occasionally, I will do so in a bed on a dino platform, like a Para, Quetz, or Stryder sleeping pod. Risky, but so far no issues. FWIW... I only play on Official PVE... with all the hassle of that, I have been fortunate in that I never had this issue ... or lost a character. So... I can't speak for your past events... but I can offer up the "sleep mode in bed/only inside a closed structure" advice and hope that keeps that issue from happening agai
  2. you can purchase engram points in the Hex shop.
  3. YMMV, but I consider the drill to be a must have tool for short range resource movement. Shuttling stone to the chem station or grinder is epic with the drill. Also, moving metal from storage to forge is much faster. It also has good use for general quick gather of most items. It is a fair swap for the pick/axe/sickle combo. If I want to spot build in stone, it is great to quickly gather and build at the same time. Depends on how rich the resource is. I do love a magmasaur for stone/wood/thatch gathering while holding a drill to transfer/build the pieces. But I do agree it is not a
  4. I'm reasonably certain that a game on a 'streaming' platform is not a significantly different version of the game itself. i.e. I would not think Wildcard would have to refactor the ARK game code to a different platform, like with Nintendo, XBOX or PS. ARK has been streamable for some time. I've done it thru NVidia GeForce Now Stream. I imagine it was more about a licensing deal to make it available in their streaming service, and all the streaming code to make that doable is on Google's side of the deal. But if you are just haunting these forums looking for a new thing to bitch about, d
  5. That's a pretty generic kernel fault. I'd go scorched earth... 1) Fully update Windows... if there are any pending updates, you will have various issues. 2) Update graphics driver. Latest and greatest. Test ARK. If it fails. uninstall ARK and delete all folder left behind. Redownload and install ARK. If that fails... It is either OS or hardware.
  6. All games come to an end. We do ourselves a disservice in fighting that. We never get to see what's next for us if we labor to not let go of the game we no longer have the best time in. There is ALWAYS something better and more engaging for our time than ho-hum mediocre login to refresh.
  7. That's the truth!!! Max boss rex eggs are like M&Ms on official. I traded 500 hard poly for 5 Boss Rex eggs... raised 7 Rexes from that group, and then dropped more eggs. I now have over 30 of 100K+ health 2K melee monsters.... with the ability to drop over 20 eggs if I want more. Every now and then I give away eggs just to pay it forward. That said, it turned boss fights into a walk in the park to get engrams and element. If I had breed and raised a group of allos to do that... I'd feel a real sense of accomplishment.
  8. Yeah. On Gen2 I had to tame a bronto, load it up on weight... and shuttle to it. Was a real PITA.
  9. Hey, this may not be a thing for others, but the ARK client was much less stable for me when run with all cores.
  10. People should vote for what they want. Why they want it is not relevant to other people and what those other folk want. People that are fighting about it are the toxic ones that cannot accept the end result, so they want to restrict HOW people get to their vote. That includes people that voted because a YouTube influencer, who put in the work to actually BE an influencer, can convince his viewers that the vote they prefer is best. All those people that voted are exactly as valid as any other vote. That includes people that read musings about the abilities and voted for that possibility.
  11. 300 cap? Hmmm... it told me I had reached cap well before 300. Maybe phantom items from transfers past were filling slots? Dunno. ARK happens.
  12. I recently had something similar with items in transfer. First time loosing anything in a transfer. I had filled the transfer storage to max, and some of the items went poof. Possible max storage causing it? Dunno... just a heads up. When it comes to tames... I exclusively transfer by cryo and in my person.
  13. I am mocking the seriousness of your contention. I am mocking false entitlement. I am mocking the feelings behind them as they are the real toxic. What I post is medicine. Chicken Noodle Soup for the Soul.
