      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

  1. Dino TLC: Feedback! Suggestions?

    This needs to be a topic of it's own. Very good point. All vanilla/original dinos need to have new abilities and looks
  2. Tek Railgun OP or just perfect?

    Possibly. I am playing by myself and have changed the damage stats, so that may have something to do with the damage. Off topic, but there should be a tek drill that harvests a lot of metal or whatever rock you're drilling in
  3. Tek Railgun OP or just perfect?

    Nameless in the head
  4. Tek Railgun OP or just perfect?

    So, the Tek Railgun can shoot through anything (except for the tek forcefield) and does about 5,000+ damage to animals and players. However, the gun overheats after one shot and has about a 5 second cool down. Is this gun OP or just the right amount of power?
  5. Auto turret issues

    That's odd....I play on PS4 and just armed a "Dreadnought" War Quetz with 50 auto turrets and everything works fine. Just assembled it last night at 10:07, to be precise
  6. Tek vs Heavy Turret

    So, I'm curious. Which is more powerful? The tek turret or the new heavy turret? I can build 4 tek turrets and fully load them. Or I could build 6 heavy turrets and only fill each 1/3 the way full. I've spent a ridiculous amount of time gathering resources, and I want the better of the two options
  7. Things Ark NEEDS (suggestions welcome)

    Ground tethers for animals. There is nothing worse than leaving your animal outside while you are doing something and then something attacks it. NEXT THING YOU KNOW, your favorite animal either runs off or gets in a fight with another animal and dies. Most frustrating thing is when your flyer goes off on its own as well
  8. So is Aberration fun?

    I haven't, but I've seen the boss fight. And MAN OH MAN. It's ah doozy But seriously, it's fantastic and really incredible. You will need so many other tribesmen/women to accompany you. Even if you use cheats to fight, a guarantee you that the fight will at least go on for 10-15 minutes. Doing it the normal way could possibly take 30-45 minutes! I am of course referring to the fight in terms of doing the Alpha level. Don't watch any gameplay of the fight if you don't want the Ark story to be spoiled!
  9. I've become really intrigued by the Ark lore with the recent development of now knowing that Aberration's boss is Sir Edmund Rockwell. Yes, THE Rockwell that developed the recipes. What I've gathered is that he was a 19th Century London chemist who joins the other three main characters (I forget the other two and am only able to remember Helena) initially on the Island. From there, it seems, the four of them ascended and went to Scorched Earth, just as we did when we beat the Island Tek Boss. From Scorched Earth, things seem to go down hill. In one dossier, I think Rockwell starts to lose his grip on everything in the heat. But some how the four main survivors ascend to Aberration. This is what I've heard: Rockwell fell in love with Helena, as one can observe that in some of his dossiers he writes about being fond of her company. But he wanted to seek more power after witnessing the Tek Boss and was driven mad with the thoughts of element. So much so, that he began experimenting with it on other survivors (not the main survivors) and eventually, on himself. I am assuming that is how he ended up with the form he is, in Aberration. Now I mentioned Helena because someone said that SUPPOSEDLY, Rockwell hid her somewhere to try to save her (from natural death, as he saw element as a means to reach godhood quite literally) and she is somewhere on the map. What do you guys think? Do you think Rockwell would do such a thing? What are your thoughts on him? If anyone is interested more in the story of Rockwell, here's a link to all of his dossiers https://ark.gamepedia.com/Explorer_Notes#Sir_Edmund_Rockwell
  10. How do you transfer your character out of aberration?

    I am unsure why your items did not transfer over Sorry bro, not much help there. But one thing I can help you with. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT GO TO THE SURFACE. I also thought the surface would be habitable with a hazmat suit. That's not the case. It's basically Scorched Earth up there except it's so hot the ground is literally on fire during the day. Not much for resources except for Element nodes. Aberration is essentially a map based underground where you will live, fight and hunt underground. Sorry I was unable to answer your question. I did the same thing as well (except I had gear). I created a new character because there's new engrams to unlock and I wanted to unlock them. If you prefer metal housing/structures, I would lastly like to mention you can also collect metal from grey rocks with blue veins in them and when an earthquake happens, you can usually find and collect the metal that falls from the ceiling. Again, sorry I couldn't answer your question. Best of luck on Aberration!
  11. So is Aberration fun?

    Absolutely. Without a doubt. Wildcard has COMPLETELY reworked the gameplay and basically everything from the ground up. This map is completely different from anything any Ark Players have seen thus far and actually is somewhat more narrative driven (YES! Ark does have a story!) and let me tell you man.......the boss fight? OOOHHHHHHHHHHHH BOY. It is beyond words. Don't watch other people play it, do it yourself! And best of luck if you do decide to get it. You'll need all the luck you can get
  12. Aberration not working?

    You can install it, but you can't play it until tomorrow. Kinda like a Christmas gift. You can buy it, but you can't open it and use it just yet until Christmas
  13. weird question.

    Horizontally it's supposed to be about the size of Scorched Earth. Vertically, I honestly have no idea. VOLUME WISE it may be the largest, (think of the map like a skyscraper) but land mass wise (think an island compared to previously mentioned skyscraper analogy) I believe it's the same as Scorched Earth
