    Community Crunch 161: Winter Wonderland 2018!

    So hypothetically if I were to set the launch parameters to ActiveEvent=FearEvolved, would that then enable the fear evolved event? Or is the ActiveEvent= a new system and/or only compatible with Winter Wonderland?

    Steam store issue

    My friends are finally getting ARK and the season pass, except on steam only the base game and Aberration are available. Everything else says N/A. Is this a WC or steam side issue, and is there any ETA on when it will be fixed?
  3. When can we expect to see another steam sale? I'm trying to get my friends to pick it up but they won't give it a chance unless it's on sale

    More Single Player Options

    What I mean is, in single player there are a lot of things that are a complete waste of time and resources to get, such as tek tier, or a giga. Sure, they look cool, but you can only walk around the map with it, so what's the point? What I'm proposing is either make a setting or implement it as a feature to add some functionality to those things, like tek tier and giga being able to enter boss arenas, or something more to the oceans so there's incentive to go into it in SP. I understand that the game is meant to be played online where you can get raid/get raided by other players, but every server I've played on has been toxic. Either it's the admins let people run rampant and do dumb and aggravating things such as what's typically on official servers, or the admins are absolute jerks who use console commands and admin rights to essentially bully people on their server because they think it's hilarious. It would just be nice to have some functionality or even a reason for getting them.

    Yeah I suppose that's true

    I agree with this much. It would be nice to have a rare variant that's magical and is basically how it is now, and a more common variant that is permanent and serves as a mid-game water mount

    Extinction Chronicles Question

    So I know pretty much everything about this event. However, there's one thing I can't find information on. When EC 2 comes in ten days, will the corrupted helmet and such still be available? Or will the terminals disappear? Because I transferred to Aberration a day before the announcement and I am nowhere near ready to get to the surface and I don't want to use admin commands if I don't have to.

    Alright thanks. I couldn’t find anything on it and was worried I’d mod out

    ARK: Extinction Release Date Revealed!

    The only problem I have with a November release date is once FO76 comes out, when I'm not in class that's going to be eating up most of my time until me and my friends have done all there is to do, which means I'm not gonna be able to experience Extinction for very long :((((

    Seriously, screw the boss fight setup

    I have been trying for two days to get my wyverns and rexes ready to fight the manticore. Every time I only need to get one or two of them onto the obelisk platform some retarded AI kapro or terror bird chases a creature into the middle of them, bites one, and literally all of them scatter for no reason. It takes 30 minutes just to find them all, and even longer to get them back. The rexes, for whatever reason, move at the speed of light and get flung to the other side of the map and the wyverns fly into every direction. There is literally no reason for any of that to happen Real predators wouldn't wander into a group of apex super predators so willy nilly, and the ai for tames is just BS I've put over 50 hours into getting through SE for a play-through of each map with one character and I'm legitimately getting sick of this
  11. The winner's arkwork wasn't even from ark. Impressive yes, but it's the indoraptor from Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom lmao. In fact, I think that's even an exact scene from the trailer

    How long can you keep prisoners for

    I remember reading somewhere that the devs were/did implement a system so that when you poop it goes into your hotbar if you have handcuffs on so you could try and kill yourself that way to escape

    Seriously, screw the boss fight setup

    because that would only make too much sense seriously though, I haven't had any kind kind of trouble up to this point with things like this, so I completely forgot that changing their stance was even a feature of the game

    Creature speed glitch

    Alright so on the island, when I was playing on a non dedicated server with my friends, whenever we would get any land creature into the water it would move faster than the speed of light and hitting literally anything would launch it across the map. Same for players. Well I transferred to SE and nothing weird like that has happened. I am preparing for the manticore and went back to the island to get my OP rexes. They were 100% imprint and such, and moved quickly but not obnoxiously so. Well when I got them out of the terminal their speed was ridiculous, almost like they were in the water in the island. Is there a reason for these glitches or a fix? Because I haven't found anything in the forums or the subreddit about it
  15. To everyone who has played it, is it worth the price tag? I'm interested in it but can't tell if I would enjoy it or not

    Dino TLC: Feedback! Suggestions?

    I get what you're going for. It would be nice if they were more realistic, BUUUUUUUUUUUUT they are supposed to be genetically altered/separately evolved from the real life counterpart, so there are some liberties taken. Plus I think an overlooked fact by pretty much everyone is the size and strength of the giga is most likely a reference to Dino Crisis 2, in which a giga appears that is around twice the size of the rex, and is so much more powerful that it takes it out in just a couple seconds

    Dino TLC: Feedback! Suggestions?

    I agree. Allosaurs wouldn't be stepping on the toes of a rex, and a rex wouldn't let any of other predators in its territory. All predators see anything smaller than them, predator or prey, as prey, and anything bigger as a threat, with the exception of things like packs of raptors against a trike/stego, or a rex against a bronto.

    Having multiple latch on to you like the leeches would make them a little more worth taming, especially if you could whistle them to do it/they did it automatically while attacking

    I wish they would actually update the model. I understand the art team is busy with extinction, but the parasaur is suffering from over design like many of the initial creatures IMO
  20. SubtendedCrib8

    Dino TLC: Feedback! Suggestions?

    I like the new parasaur ability, it's something we've all been asking for for some time, but the model suffers from the same condition as a lot of the launch dinos do: over design. My suggestion would be to get rid of the unnecessary spikes, make the skin look more realistic like the other tlc pass dinos, and maybe a switch stance? IRL they most likely walked on all 4's to eat and graze and ran on 2 legs. Also, I think I'm misinterpreting, but is there going to be two different honks, or only the one in the preview clip? If it's just the one, make it a lot louder. If it's two, an alarm and a scare, then as long as the alarm one is louder than that it's fine

    So what did you do in ARK today?

    me and my friend ascended on my non dedicated server but he crashed right as the cutscene started and now he can't find his character file and we're considering stopping
  22. SubtendedCrib8

    Dino TLC: Feedback! Suggestions?

    Stronger? We'll find out when they've officially announced everything that will be in it, like they did with phase 1. It'll be able to switch stances, bipedal doing a lot more damage as it'll also use its claws in exchange for speed. Quadrupedal switches damage for speed and maneuverability. It'll move faster and have a tighter turning radius, as well as being buffed while in the water

    I think of them as separately evolving from the base genome, although being genetically created like the humans in aberration, goes along with a theory about the origins of the ARKs that I have. In the aberration ascension, you get transported to earth. Before you do you can see a large crater. We also learn that the tek tier, which is the same style as the ARKs, is human made. We also see briefly in the cinematic that on earth very similar structures are left in a barren hell, so it's basically confirmed that they're human made. We also learn from Diana that in the future that humanity is split into two warring factions. From this, I'm going on a limb and saying that the war caused a near-human extinction, sparking the creation of the ARKs to secure the future of the human race. Shortly after launching the project, a massive meteor struck the earth, causing that huge crater from the cinematic, as no nuke is powerful enough to create such devastation, only something like a meteor is, which we've seen here on earth in the real world. As a way of preparing the survivors of the ARKs for the harsh realities of the now completely devastated earth, the future humans scanned and cloned humans displaying certain characteristics, such as intelligence, adaptability, lethality etc from across time, as well as some of the most dangerous, either letting them evolve on their own or genetically enhancing them to the point that they're a new species, to allow them to adapt to the horrors they may face when they return. This would explain the name 'Extinction' for the next and final DLC releasing this year, as it would show the extinction of the human race, and possibly all life on earth in the future, and explaining why they're called ARKs, because an ark is used to preserve life after a cataclysmic event, like noah's ark. The only things that don't add up are the defense units in the control station, as they're bio-organic, or in lamens cyborgs. Although if the dinosaurs are genetically altered, it's not too much of a stretch to assume that they would have altered various beings to leave behind to help ensure only the best survive. Unless of course it's revealed that the whole thing was created by an alien race, which would explain the reason the control center and the defense units look different stylistically compared to things on the ARKs themselves. TL;DR it makes sense for them to be genetically altered, and not separately evolved

    It's implied through the dossiers as they're separate subspecies and look and act a little different than they had in real life. If I remember correctly, Helena also mentions it in one of her early explorer notes on the island

    Dino TLC: Feedback! Suggestions?

    They're subspecies due to evolving independently on the island, but certain traits carry over across species
