  1. Imagine if this spun off in to a Lego toy line or something <3
  2. Last year I was talking to the hosts and other players in the Twitch chat. I was popular and polite. So why am I banned from chat when I view your stream on Twitch now?
  3. Hahaha, sorry. I was thinking in feet as I was describing it to my wife at the same time. Thank you.
  4. Nope, I was wrong. It is a new map. Probably Earth, and the return of the Homo Deus. If you look down the chamber you see glimpses of scenery that correspond to the element type of images on the sides (poison, ice, fire, water). I look forward to see what it will be! BTW, they announced the discovery of a 3ft tall parrot that lived in New Zealand. Imagine that as a pet in Ark.
  5. Looks like some elemental thing. I been wanting something to make it more D&D-like. That is how I named and ran my servers.
  6. Will Switch get more maps? I bought it to play through all the maps when it is convenient to use a handheld
  7. We now know Stegosaurus had a more streamline boy like its relatives (look at Kentrosaurus). The back legs are not that much longer than the front legs, and it had a longer neck.
  8. Concept A - Only shoulder animals are tamable. Can even make it so they are the only animals on the island. This would make PvP interesting as you have small armies. Reduce the breeding and hatching time as some of them, like Compy, take almost 4 days to mature. Concept B - Boosted rates, either everything or just XP, but have it on Hardcore mode. This can work with either PvP or PvE. Concept C - My personal favorite as I am currently playing it on Single Player. Difficulty is 0.144 so maximum dino level is 30. Do what you want to balance the rest out, but I play with 5x tame, 40x m
  9. That is a fictional build of that dinosaur. The good fossils of it were destroyed in WWII. Only recently did we find its limbs, and it was very much a quadrupedal aquatic dinosaur. The first aquatic dinosaur, actually. If you want a claw swiping dino like that then look at Baryonyx, as that is how it fished.
  10. Holidayevent branch of our dedicated servers? I searched, nothing is there to enable it.
  11. I was more suggesting the shapes and patterns, not colors. The colors are limited to the game anyways, just the patterns, shapes, and obviously the textures like the newer creatures. My mistake. Thank you for the pictures then . The Quetzalcoatlus is outdated. We now know it had a thick neck.
  12. I just want to give some scientific insight to some of these animals, in hopes it will inspire unique abilities as well as be educative: Allosaurus - nothing to change here. I know it is a new dino, but I wanted to say it was the wolf of the Jurassic, so having them be pack animals is perfect! Carnotaurus - was a sprinter that chased down smaller prey. may have had feathers on its useless, rear-pointing arms. This should be a fast medium-sized carnivore. Compsognathus - they ate small critters, so maybe they get a buff attack towards other shoulder-sized dinosaurs and insects?
  13. @gaiainruin The cave bear is meant to have a shortened face. That is what cave bears are known for, look up their skull. @Steveetrnal They are changing models, not colors. Changing up the colors would screw it up for a lot of players who breed dinosaurs. @Jatheish You guys are on the right track! These old models just look so blocky and featureless. The new models give personality and style to them (this is not the excitement talking). You are making them more scientifically accurate, but with a cool or sci-fi twist, which is how it should be for an Ark game. Love it! I look forward
  14. Ah finally! Cannot wait for someone to decode that picture. I am too lazy
  15. I know but one would presume that they just skip it entirely.
  16. Ouch, that is too bad. My server crashes at least twice a day now (Xbox). I am working again so it is difficult to keep it up for my players (100+ joined, 4-16 on at any given time of day). Some of whom been playing for the past 6 weeks it been up since official release as it is a Ragnarok map. I keep assuring them that I am going rental as soon as possible. I scouted around and found a company that I want to work with. I just sucks that now they will have to wait longer before I get a stable server and start recruiting again (I stopped to maintain server stability). But still, good to hear
  17. You are making it sound like Nitrado will be the only way to rent a server for Xbox Ark. Is this the case, or can I rent from other providers?
  18. Wesley from Portal 2 will be very happy. "Space? I like space. Spaaaace. SPAAAACE!"
  19. What a pleasant experience when starting off in PvP. Not for me. When I joined I was chased down and knocked out. He pooped on my face and took my clothing and items. He then fed me narcoberries and dragged me off a cliff. I logged out then.
  20. Thank you, but what about all that other great artwork?
  21. My download speed dropped in the last few minutes. Everyone is figuring out it is up. But why do I have two versions of the game downloading?
  22. Good day. I was looking around the Tribe sections for fun and your name caught my attention. I am a huge Dragon Ball Z fan and I also served 5 years in the US Marine Corps. I been playing video games since I was a baby (now 31). I am very mature, logical, kind, patient, and intelligent (I will correct you on how to pronounce chitin). All my life I had a passion for dinosauria, and do plan on being a paleontologist one day. This is what drew me in to ark, and I know the game inside and out. I am looking for a new group to play with as my previous tribe of the past year slowly disbanded. The funnest thing for me is to play with other people, and that is what I want. (I also have it for PC so I can test out new stuff before Xbox gets it).

     

    Below is my succinct, sad story of why I am now alone in Ark. Should you want to know my experience in the game and be like "whoa" and stuff :) 
     

    I decided to join solo and test things out. I got pretty good at getting in to and out of bases, and was absolutely amazed at what people built. I was also envious they had all these awesome dinosaurs at their disposal, and hoped one day I would be on par with them. I got stuck in a base's house because neither the owner or I saw each other and he closed the door when he left. I managed to get out through a window, but I talked about it and I became friends with this tribe of real life friends. We played for almost a year together, and during that time they slowly left Ark to play other games. I ended up with ownership of the tribe and got us to become one of the strongest tribes on the server (because of me). I even started trading on my server, as no one wanted to talk to each other or trust one another. I ended up with such good relationships with everyone I was able to borrow any blueprint I wanted, and even had the first guy on the server to be high enough to craft a giganotosaurus saddle make me the first one (for outside his tribe). I got my giganotosaurus by logging in one day, seeing all the chatter, and found out the server knocked out the highest level giganotosaurus yet seen and were about to kill it. I proclaimed I had the kibble ready (which I did, remember, this is the old 1x tame rate) and wanted to tame it. So they let me join the tribe of the ones who got the final blow and I tamed it and had the highest level giganotosaurus on the server (much happiness. I gave tribe ownership to my alt account using my wife's profile). I had everything: at least 2 of each dino, mastercraft and ascendant blueprints and gear, a base with all the artifacts shown off and broodmother head (only boss at the time). I solo tamed 90% of that stuff, including my 100+ mosasaur that took me 40min to knock out with it having 1,000 health left. Then the redwood update came, and even though I was outside the warning zone I still got wiped. All I had left was a plant species x and my mosasaur. Quit for a bit after that, despite attempts to rebuild with the last dangling tribe member who mostly played offline with his son.

    I decided to check out tribe postings and saw one of my interest. Joined a mediocre tribe where there was one active member as the others were waiting for the game's release and were semi-active. I brought this tribe up from mediocre to one of the top-tier tribes on the server (I transferred). People would bombard me every day for eggs or trade items, and sometimes I would just give it away (which is what you do when you have two fridges full of eggs). Again I became so well known and liked I was able to do things like borrow tribe's only female sheep and breed it, or get their best blueprints so I can craft them. I also processed new members: showing them the ropes and doing background checks. Everything was fantastic. Sadly, they slowly died out due to real life issues. The final blow came when one member recruited someone during the July 4th holiday (so the rest of us were not playing Xbox) and that person happened to be a nobody 15 year old troll insider. He destroyed our Tek, killed my best raised dinosaurs (dire wolves and rexs), destroyed my tower of the base (had every trophy head except dragon, every flag, every artifact), took all our blueprints (some were the best on the server), and then had the gall to laugh at us and say "just get it all over again". I got him and his cohorts banned from all the xbox PvE trading clubs, found their server, and tried to block up their stuff with some garbage dinosaurs we had. I had no help from my tribe, and of course when I executed this plan that was when they were moving so their online member screwed up my plans. I get heated just thinking about all that stress. I got some good stuff back from the people I helped on the server, but it was not enough. I lost too much and have not had the heart to log back in on the server since.

    I been planning on hosting a Ragnarok server. I played around with the settings and like where they are at. I want a D&D type experience, casual PvE where breeding is not a pain, and this way I will NOT get wiped by stupid stuff since I can just admin. I also plan on hosting events and other fun activities, with loot/dinosaurs as prizes. I have people who are interested in it but I am still hesitant as I will manage a facebook page (which I made long ago as I wanted to host a server when the game came out) and a patreon page where subscribers get monthly in-game rewards. Who knows, if I make enough money I could rent out a server so my wife can have her Xbox back.

    TL;DR: I am a pro Ark player ;) and would be a huge asset to your tribe. I am trying to not do things that eat up my life, such as raising rexs to 100% imprint, etc as I have well over 100 days played and every achievement.
