PS4 - Unofficial cluster
I ended up getting to play a lot less than I had anticipated this weekend.
Valguerro: continued my addition to the base, and managed to tame another event owl and event mana. I harvested a bunch more bone dinos and was able to craft up a couple of the headless and hockey mask skins. I sure wish I could use skins on the tek helmet. sucks that it only works on other helmets.
I hatched and raised a couple of Abberrant spinos that I had transferred the eggs from Abberation, and also raised up another boss tek rex for the boss battles.
I then spent some time harvesting drops and resources, including raw metal for the forge.
I found a dead spot in my food trough coverage, so I made up and implemented a couple more of those too. (sure wish we could see the trough range like we can with tek generator)
I also raised up a couple of Reaper babies I had transferred from Abberation.
ABBERRATION: Spent some time looking for event shinehorns, featherlights and other dinos. During my search, I came across a handful of dinos, and their timers said 1.5 minutes until claimable. The tribe name was the same guy I had helped out 2 weeks ago, so it appears that he has already given up on Abberration. I cryo'd the dinos and put them aside, if he shows back up I will give them back to him. He had nothing of my interest, except a couple event colored Drakes, one of which was a good level.
I also got Reaper impregnated twice, but since the event colors are very close to the regular vanilla reaper colors, I gave up, as I kept getting vanilla looking babies.
RAGNAROK: I spent some time re-arranging dinos around my base as I am getting a bit crowded with everyone parked right next to the base. My base location is in upper hidana, so I'm in a spot small enough where I can spread out more, as no one can build on the same butte as me, unless an ally.
I then decided to go looking for event Griffins to tame. So I grabbed some cryopods from the cryofridge and some kibble and headed out.
Instead of griffins, I soon tamed up 2 good level event Gachas, and one was a black pearl producer and the other had Poly, Crystal and Silica Pearls. I needed all of these things for my Valguerro base, and they were a M-F pair so this was PERFECT. I cryopoded the gachas, and went back looking for griffins. As I was flying around, I hear the "armor breaking" noise and I see a message that says empty cryopod dead. I look in my inventory, and all of the cryopods on my body were dead, INCLUDING the two that held the newly tamed Gachas. I am confused as to DILO happened, since those pods came from a cryofridge, as I always store my pods in a cryofridge when offline. Needless to say, I was a bit cranky after this, and I then returned to base, only to notice that my two event zombie wyverns that I had tamed after killing a dodowyvern were totally bloody and near death. I checked their inventory, and they had meat, kibble and berries (which I had put in days earlier, as I wasn't sure what a zombie wyvern ate) I then checked the tek trough they were parked next to, and that was full with all variations of meat, berries and kibble. I have no idea what is going on, as all the rest of my dinos were full food levels. So I cryo'd those wyverns until I learn what to feed them.
Then around 7pm last night the cluster owner mentioned on Discord, that they had added The Island map, so people could do the tek cave as experience the halloween event correctly. So I uploaded a couple flyers and the materials for a starter base and headed over.
I found a spot close (but not too close) to Red OB, and set up a tiny starter base on the tiny island underneath the water fall. I spent some time getting that set up, then hit drops for about an hour while also looking for the dodorex, as the moon was up. No one ever saw the dodorex, but the meteors flying thru the sky were certainly interesting.
I tamed up a secruity system tek parasaur and installed him at the base.
Then it was time to watch my Green Bay Packers win in an exciting football game.
I don't plan on spending a ton of time on The Island, so I intentional built a very small base. I will however transfer some boss dinos over to do the bosses at some point.
