  1. I loaded up my survivor with cryo'd dinos and all my mats to move to a new base and just spawned in the new area dead, no body, no backpack etc. I'm guessing the game struggled to load in that many items during the tele but who knows
  2. Genesis cont.. So I finally got into a position to move to the snow, I'd done pretty well from a few missions and had some nice journeyman, picks/longneck etc and some better than prim armor. I built lots of Keep building materials and transferred over to the snow biome, I put a makeshift base down ready to move everything over and begin the search for a new home. I transferred back to the bog and loaded up my spino with all of my materials from the base and put the sarco, frog, bloodstalker and moschops in cryopods. I transferred back to the Arctic and waited, it took a little longer to load than usual but I've played ARK for a while, its nothing unusual. "You have died"..... Fantastic! Now I'm going to have to run and find my body... I went back to my death spot.....no green light....no body.... I am admin of my server so i ghosted under the map to look around....nothing So now I have a nice box base in the freezing cold with no items and no tames.... Time to start over!
  3. Genesis story continued... So as previously planned, I have made the jump to metal (but still neglecting any armor for some reason...) and began building some keep level CKFR foundations for the move to the snow biome. The bog is far too dark and cluttered with trees for me. As previously mentioned the level 20 spino has now been replaced by a 150 X Spino. I thought that was perfect and began raining tranq arrows from my elevated inside tree base....this did not go well, the spino is big enough to just walk over the rocks and get right at me, even through the tree trunk.. After about 10 deaths, I hastily built a stone gateway taming pen and trapped the spino in there (I did lose my X Raptor during this process). Only after knocking this guy out did I notice that 'X' dinos seem to have a base 200% melee which would account for my many armorless deaths. So with the spino tamed (and a friend getting me a saddle) I finally feel a bit safer around the bog. I tamed a frog for the cementing paste and a high level Sarco as backup and am using these to ferry metal and resources back and forth to the base in relative safety. I've now crafted a longneck and am beginning to make bullets in preparation for tranq darts and will craft up some chitin or fur armor depending on how much longer I'm planning on staying in the bog. Next steps for Thursdays stream: (I dont know why I plan 'next steps' ..... best laid plans and all...) - Tame a Bloodstalker once I get enough bloodpacks - Explore the rest of the Bog to make sure I havent missed anything interesting - Farm resources and craft building mats ready for the move to the Snow biome - Explore the Snow biome for a base location - Make the move! If I get enough time to do all of this
  4. So after the issues with Linux servers...I finally booted up my unofficial server and had a run around Genesis. One thing I've noticed is it's a whole lot more dangerous than most other maps (dont be fooled by the 'easy' spawn). I jumped around each biome to get a feel for them and after being ambushed on the moon and freezing to death in the snow, I decided to stick to the bog. I wasn't too worried about settling down straight away until I could find myself somewhere semi-permanent. After a while I settled down in one of the giant trees. The entrance is elevated and surrounded by rocks so it is completely safe from wild dinos. Which is lucky as a 145 sarco and a spino have moved in. I have put a makeshift taming pen on the ground as taming anything in the open just seems like a nightmare and tamed a 140 raptor. This will be my exploration dino for now. I am planning on taming the sarco and the spino if they're still around as they'll be better than the raptor. Next move is metal up ! And get exploring! I'm turning this playthrough into a YouTube series if anyone is interested
  5. After my post yesterday I logged back on to be greeted by the create a character screen......I lost everything Immediately logged off and just waiting for WC to fix the Genesis update for private servers and I'll start again on there
  6. So I jumped on official PVP for the first time ever the last couple of days whilst waiting to switch my un-official pvp server to Genesis. I went for small tribe servers as i'm going solo and after a few deaths on The Island I settled on Valguero. I made a base right on the coast on some rocks with an overhanging cliff (too high to jump down from) and surrounded by tall rocks, essentially providing cover from all angles, I thought I was pretty safe.......... I set up here for a few days, tamed an Anky and Ptera and was just starting the metal grind. The plan was to then use the Ptera to go exploring around the map. However, Saturday night I was having a lot of trouble getting onto the server, timeouts etc and about 4 or 5 attempts later I am finally in. Starving, almost dead I wake up outside to see my base completely vanished. It looks like the entire base has been wiped, tames included but strangely, all of my flak gear was left on my body... So for now, I've based in a cool little corner of the beach, again surrounded on all sides by rocks and cliffs but enough space for a 3x2x2 and still be completely invisible from the beach and only marginally visible from the sky, I also managed to tame a very bright purple event 150 raptor which I've hidden as far into the rocks as possible.... I havent logged back on since

  8. I have a pvp server that will be switching from The Island to a fresh start on Genesis when it is released. All server details are in this link: https://steamcommunity.com/app/346110/discussions/10/1750147465520220130/?tscn=1581672033 Rare Sightings and obviously the 2 map extension mods will be removed
  9. Raised my 18/19 Theri's ready to fight bosses, just waiting for their exp to tick whilst in their pods. Still undecided whether to include a Daedon or just rely on cakes Made up a ton of cakes and stored them in a refrigerator at the boss dino storage by the obelisk Scouted The Island for Rare Sightings and managed to find an ascendant pump shotgun which will also come in useful! Also ran some caves to stock up on artifacts. I think by Saturday's stream, i'll be ready to try Gamma Dragon again
  10. Beginning the rebuild off stream (I did record it for YouTube) this time following my Gamma Dragon failure. Bred up roughly 10 Theri's and managed to get an ascendant Theri saddle BP which should help so much! I found a Rare Sighting Yuty for the team as well. I built a boss dino storage area next to the obelisk where they can safely regain health following battles as per a recommendation on Reddit. Next steps: I'll need to hatch a few more Theri and find a high level Daedon. Once the team is set, I'll make up a bunch of cakes and try the dragon again.
  11. Thanks so much, thats some really useful information! Especially the render distance for pigs!
  12. Following the success of my first ever boss fight - Gamma Broodmother attempt, I took my 18 Theri's, Daedon and Yuty back to the obelisk to try the monkey and dragon. Noob moments to mention: - All my dinos had been sitting in the cryopod since the last boss fight not healing etc. - My Daedon was also sitting on 0 food - Sharing out the few cakes I had, resulted in them being eaten immediately... So I'm sitting at the obelisk with half dead Theri's and a starving pig.. I did a quick meat run in an attempt to heal up the Theri's via the Daedon healing but they really didnt seem to recover much health at all (am I doing something wrong) at no point was the pig at full food which probably affected this. So I go into Gamma Monkey, kite him to the entrance and proceed to kill him with no deaths, perfect! So now I'm reading that the dragon is a lot harder than the other 2 and I'm beginning to second guess giving up in this stream to enable the dinos to recover health...Then at some strange thinking, I just jump straight into the Dragon fight.. Noob moment No.4: - I still had my artifact holding otter on my shoulder I go in, nothing is happening, I whistle all follow and walk forward a bit, still nothing... I then hear wings, turn around and am completely surrounded by Theri's whilst on the Yuty and cannot move. We take out the Ptera's and the Dragon is hurling fireballs at the Theri pile but once I get a shot off at the Dragon, the Theri's attack leaving Yuty, Pig and I following behind. Immediately Theri's start dropping and within a few minutes everyone is dead. I lose everything, my artifacts, all my Theri's, Rare Sighting Daedon (which, I know, I should've bred like you guys told me) and my low level Yuty. Future Plans: So it's not all bad, - I can breed up 18 Theri's relatively quickly, this time I'll leave them out of the pods until full health - Finding another Rare Sighting Daedon will be down to RNGesus - Tame another Yuty (I'm assuming I just need high stamina for this) So all in all, these were my first 3 boss fights I have ever done and managed 2. Beta and Alpha seem very daunting for me right now after the Dragon fail but i'm hoping to get everything done before Genesis. Sorry, for the huge essay but as always, any tips, hints etc are greatly appreciated.
  13. That's good to know! Thanks! Some colours that came out of the breeding
  14. They're not great yet, 35 points in melee and 40 in health base.
  15. Awesome, thank you! Maybe I'll take my Theri's in first to see how they do
