  1. Then why do Ark updates always appear to download as such a slow rate when compared to other games?
  2. Could it not be due to the way WC build/pack the updates that makes them so slow to download?
  3. I am not convinced that super fast BB is always what it's cracked up to be. Now I will admit that I do not know much about how download speeds work, but as I see it, you could pay several hundred for a 2Gbps (yes, Gbps just for the sake of this post), yet if the server you are downloading from will only give up its data at, say, 500Mbps, then despite your fancy 2Gbps internet speed, you'll only receive that data at 500Mbps, tops.
  4. My issue with Ark updates is not the size, but the speed. Of all the games I have on my Xbox, the Ark updates always come in at a crawl. I have a 70 Mbps connection, but if I am honest most game updates come in at around 55 Mbps. However, Ark updates always come in at a slow crawl. Not sure why.
  5. If the server is down/offline, your babies will not be dead. An offline server goes into "pause mode" as far as I am aware.
  6. This occurred yet again yesterday, but with a double occurrence. I was on a wyvern and I went to the side of the volcano (Island) to collect another flying creature (a tapejara) I had left there earlier on. I whistle for it to follow me, which it starts to do. As it flies past the volcano it suddenly disappeared. I am thinking it touched the volcano or some other object as it flew. Luckily I had a transponder node on it which, when I activated it, showed me that my tapejara had been teleported almost 2000m away. I flew to it's location where I found it hovering just above th
  7. Yes, I see what you are saying regarding the misuse of the transmitter. I agree that the player should not get anything back in these circumstances.
  8. I don't see how this is "cheating". It's a genuine part of the game, an ability that is built into the game. How is it cheating? I use it to transport heavy items from one base to another using tek transmitters.
  9. The problem with the advice to uninstall/reinstall, particularly with Ark, is that the game is so big, especially if you have all the DLC, that it can take a donkey's age to download again. Especially as Ark downloads (at least on Xbox) always download at a very slow rate compared with other games.
  10. Yes, I have noticed this too even on private servers. The worst I am experiencing is on Crystal Isles, where I have an underwater base. I log in and half of the base is missing, though no water comes in. As I stand in the base and look outward the water outside the sea appears not to be there. I then step out of the base through where there should be vacuum compartments, and then the sea appears and then the rest of my base. It's strange and annoying. This is on Xbox.
  11. I understood that they could only be tamed in deep water.
  12. I guess I am not the only one who experiences this, but I am interested in hearing from those who have had disappearing tames, only to find them again. In the past week I have lost three tames, one on Island and two on Crystal Isles. I play on a private (PvE) cluster of servers on Xbox. On Island I had a wyvern located in the volcano crater. He was away from the lava and set to passive. I had left him in there whilst I did some obsidian harvesting. Due to external factors I had to log out and leave him there. Two days later I went to collect him and he was not there. There was
  13. I just purchased Genesis on Xbox. I've got the HNLA and I have equipped her in my off-hand slot. I can't interact with her. I am stood facing her but I get no Y options as I would when looking at a tame. She often follows my turning, so that I find it difficult to look at her. Also she keeps disappearing, and I have to keep un-equipping and re-equipping her to make her reappear. I have tried re-logging and using a bed to transfer to another bed, but still I cannot interact with her.
  14. I just would like to say how awesome this cluster and community are. Everybody is incredibly friendly and helpful. If you are new to Ark, this is a great community to be part of. Likewise if you are a seasoned player. I’ve been a member of the Hive Community for a little of one week, and I’m having a lot more fun in Ark now. Come join!
  15. Agreed! Though the rain and its associated weather fog annoys me at times. You can play for hours, doing not much, and no reduced visibility. But as soon as I decide to go looking for a specific object, it seem the rain and fog comes rolling in. The game knows! ?
  16. There is an option in the settings to turn off "weather fog". It won't stop the rain but does remove the fog that sometimes comes with it.
  17. Or perhaps it has something to do with what has been happening around the world during the past six months with lockdowns, etc. Lots of people were off work and school and so had more time to play games. Now that people are gradually returning to work and school, the numbers playing games (any games) are bound to fall.
  18. I have had a number of instances where my tames have started to fight with something, because I had them on aggressive or neutral. When I want them to stop fighting and break away, I whistle Passive and then I whistle for them to follow me as I move away. They stop fighting and start following me. The only issue would be if what they were attacking chases after them and continues to attack them.
  19. If it's an official server, then I guess the only way would be to look at your character's tribal log. If it was your own private server, you'd have access to the admin logs, but as it's official, you can only read in your log what the server settings allow you to see.
  20. I'm looking to play on my first PvP server. However, your server, at least for me, is way too boosted. But 25x XP just takes all the challenge and sense of achievement out of playing. It's a shame as otherwise it looks to be a good server.
  21. Devoid of life? Not on the servers I play its not. In fact, I am sure there's a bug that is over-spawning Leedsichthys and megalodons; there seems to be bunches of them spawning together.
  22. I find this happens quite often when joining official servers on Xbox. What I have noticed is that if I am launching Ark for the first time that day (after the Xbox has been off overnight), then game takes longer to launch. I guess it has to load everything into the console's memory from scratch. Whereas if I have been playing already and just launch a different map, or log in a different server, the game loads a lot quicker, and there's less chance of the disconnect on spawn in. I have no idea if I am correct here, but here is what I suspect is happening: 1. As soon as I sel
  23. I reported somebody for pillaring on an official server (which, according to WC is against game rules). I had the usual auto-response telling method my complaint had been lodged and closed down as no more information was needed, and that an investigation will take place. Nothing happened about the pillaring. WC devs do not enforce their own rules it seems, so good luck on getting an "emergency response".
  24. I too did this when I first started using creative mode. Slamming into the barriers at the side of the map just bounces you back. Slamming through the ceiling, like millwright says, kills your character, and as result you lose what you are carrying. No big deal if you are in creative mode, as you just make yourself some replacement stuff. It's not a bug as another has suggested.
  25. Wow! Finally! A private server that doesn't give you such fast experience/level up rates that there's simply no fun or challenge! So many private serves I have checked out are so ridiculously boosted, that there's no sense of achievement and no challenge. When you say x2 I guess that is x2 the NEW base rates, meaning it's actually x4 according to the previous. Therefore it's 4x XP according to the previous system. Still a little too fast for me, but I guess I don't have to apply the level ups as quickly as I may receive them. I will be checking you server out today for sure! I d
