  1. HLN-A is Navi from Zelda "Hey, Oi! Over here, Hey you! Hey survivor!"
  2. Just deciphered the latest batch, this is with the transmitter emitting or recieving a red beam. All pillars still say AP Uplink Established or whatever, that hasn't changed, the new text starting from left to right reads: Specimen Simulation mode: Cooperative Specimen Maintenence Protocol: Updated Host System Directive: Updated Resolution Schema: Updated (Schema is an actual word and means Plan) Change Authorization 724ea9458D40FBBF verified Ecological Conditions: Predictive The rotating text around the beam is very tricky, when it pans into view and is easy to make out as it isn't shimmering, it has only three lines of text and it reads Subsystem Guardian Specimen When it pans infront of the beam or the timer, making it illedgible, it's been deciphered based on common symbols, that it also reads Change Authorization 724ea9458D40FBBF verified As it matches the length, and starting symbols of that very message, however the resolution, even at max resolution with the data beam and timer makes it impossible to tell, there is no good angle to view the rotating 4 text lines.
  3. It's not where I left it and on singleplayer I've been under the map where it fell down, there's nothing below it. Suppose I could try going to 50/50 but I doubt that'll work
  4. Please be more lenient about despawning in dungeons So I was in The Center lava cave on official servers, PVE, and I jumped across lava on my rock drake at the same time as a lag spike. When the lag spike ended, I was swimming in the lava (I had 500 HP, the drake had 15,000 ish) and so I swam to the cliff while "OHpoopOHpoopOHpoop" and my drake made it to the wall and began to climb up it but I died. Now, the drake is on the wall and safely out of harms way right? BEFORE I CAN RESPAWN, I WATCH IT BLIP OUT OF EXISTANCE (you can still see the area where you died while selecting a bed to respawn at). It just up and goes poof. Despawns. Didn't die, didn't register as a death in the tribe log, just... poof. There goes my mastercraft desert cloth gear, my mastercraft revolver and sword, my climbing picks, a stack of ammo, and whatever loot I'd grabbed at the time. Not to mention the drake's tek saddle. I then report this to support and they tell me I'm out of luck because I fell into lava. I WOULDN'T HAVE FALLEN INTO LAVA IF I DIDN'T LAG TELEPORT. I also wouldn't be mad if you didn't despawn my dino when it was in a safe zone. Please... rework caves so your crap doesn't despawn that fast. We've got grappling hooks and tek armor, give us a chance to rescue our stuff.
  5. That wasn't a simple defeat though, the force of the tek nuke annihilated the entire control tower. Even if the overseer did come back, its command center has been decapitated from the rest of the Ark, rendering it useless. In addition if you look at the top of the tower, you can't even see the overseer's command center, like it jettisoned or blew itself to bits. As for boss respawning mechanics, Scorched Earth. Helena talks about how Raia had the keys to leave the ark from defeating the manticore in times prior, and the chief of the raiders Rockwell was with slayed it during their stay as well.
  6. Rockwell became part of the "System" but took partial control of it, Aberration is still carrying out the Ark program but on his terms for his own rules. As a "boss" of the Ark, Rockwell is now tied to Ascension and so will be resurrected as many times as need be as mandated by the Ark's programming, one of the things Rockwell can't alter (yet). If Aberration crashing didn't Obliterate the computer systems inside, it would've resurrected him yet again. And then there's always a chance the sentient Element could've resurrected him by itself since it needs a new "king titan" after the defeat of it's primary champion.
  7. I just want to slide this into the whole Helena Walker debate, What if The One who Waits was the original Helena Walker before the Ark's launched, she was elected to the Homo Deus program for whatever reason and ascended. The Helena Walker we know is a clone of the original Helena Walker, the clone ran around on the arks and was able to experience regular humanity once again, companionship, awe, depression, loss, grief, gratitude, etc. On extinction when she finds a special white artifact and inserts it into her implant and she's taken to the tomb of ascension, what if Old Homo deus helena and the clone merge, resurrecting her identity by merging her base humanity to her ascended form once more? Sort of like a fountain of youth effect. At that point Homo Deus helena re-awakens as a being with intellect, memories of the old Helena, Memories of the new, one who has lived in both past and present, memories that aren't very well sorted and so she can't remember if it's 2008 or 2008+x amount of years that have gone by? This would both allow her to have knowledge and participation of the ark program at its inception, as well as to have a personal relationship with Mei and Diana, and Rockwell.
  8. Looks like it updated again. I think I'll let someone else handle it since it's midnight and I'm tired.
  9. The only thing I can think of to say about this that might have an ounce of hope as a counter arguement is that one graduate kid on Aberration that "spawned" in thought it was a dream and jumped off a cliff to wake up because he had the same dream or a similar one "a few nights ago". If he's not a clone, then someone flarped up that artificial memory seeding algorithm.
  10. We're on an Island ark for the overseer boss fight, you look out the main overseer window slightly to the left, there's another Island ark. That makes at least two of them. Nevermind the uncountable amount of island ark's you fly thru on your way to scorched earth in the ending cinematic.
  11. Question, where did Ark Genesis come from? Is that the community moniker for the next DLC without being confirmed, or did a dev leak the title somewhere
  12. I knew something was wrong but it kept giving me YScheck, I wasn't getting an S to start
  13. Also since we're here and this is a Theory megathread... I think I know why there's no water. I had an epiphany while watching that video from Anthomnia. Where he saw that scar/canyon and there was visible water in it? What if... that's the Mariana Trench, the deepest point in the ocean in the modern day, now the last source of free water? Anyways, slightly off topic, bringing it back. What if the reason there's no water is because of the Element? I think, element needs water. Bear with me here, in Aberration we see water go over a waterfall and turn into pools of element. It's healthy and pure at the top, it's not at the bottom. We know from Rockwell's obsession that this is pure element in it's purest form, if Element possesses some form of sentience like what Extinction hints at, and it's pure form is the result of water mixing with element solids (say, the exposed root-like structures that show in Aberration and Extinction) it might be consuming the water for replication or growth. It would also explain why the most element infested region of Extinction, is a glacier. That stuff is trying to replicate/grow and it needs the water to do it. As a planet the same amount of water has always existed and always will, Earth is a closed system. If all the ARK's and all their water come back, the system is again closed, and element eradication has begun. We know if we chemically divide a compound into it's base elements we'll get back what it's made out of. If the Element eradication process occurs and this theory is true, the more element that gets removed, the more water will return to the planet.
  14. Tinkerer's TLC pass Tinkering and fine tuning, we've all done it. Whether it's installing new RAM in your PC or putting a rubber grip on your favorite shooting pistol, or getting your dad's old LP 45 Turntable to work again and listen to the music of a bygone era, chances are you've tinkered. I suggest a tinkering pass be made to ark Allowing a more intricate crafting system. It wouldn't change the crafting system on a fundemental level, everything that currently exists would still exist and the process would be the same, the tinkering pass just adds rewards for the curious. Tinkering pass would only affect crafted items. There would be things like the following. When an assault Rifle breaks, only certain parts of it break, not the whole thing. IRL for a catastrophic failure like that to occur and require new material to refurnish the rifle, you just had either a barrel blowout, the action inside the receiver just got destroyed or your gas-operated pistol for semi and full auto function just got decrapitated. The TLC pass would allow you to repair the rifle normally by tossing it in a fabricator and hitting FIX, but it would also give you the "dissassemble" option so you end up with Barrel, Upper reciever, lower reciever, forestock, grip, buttstock, magazine, and whatever attachment (if any) you had at the time. One or two of these would be damaged and if you had spares you could simply replace the parts and rebuild the rifle with new parts. Or you could fix the parts individually and dre-assemble them. You could also combine parts from different quality items. For example, if you have a 211 dmg assault rifle but Barrel has 141 durability, Upper reciever has 90, Lower has 120, etc, you could go grab a lower dmg assault rifle with a high durability upper reiever and swap them out, DMG values would adjust since the new part would contributed to overall damage rating instead of the old part, so you might go from a 211 assault rifle to a 203, but with higher durability just because you swapped a part. With saddles crafted in this manner you could install various saddle bags, travel bags, a bedroll, etc, which would allow the creature you are riding to have new inventory functions. Reduce weight of stone by carrying a quarry bag on the saddle. Reduce spoil timers by having an insulated food bag on the saddle. Respawn on the creature by having a bedroll on the saddle. These would be skins or attachments rather than passively sit in the creature's inventory and provide buffs. With Armor the TLC pass might do things like allow field patching which restores a maximum of 20 durability, disabled hyperthermic and hypothermic insulation but allows you to continue to wear the damaged armor set. I think of a soldier out in the field tearing up a bandana into long strips and tying those strips around his harness and gear to keep it from snapping from damage sustained or busted up kneepads or something to keep them attached. You'd also be able to "custom fit" armor to your character, providing a "well fit" buff which allows stamina to recover faster. If you're wearing armor that hasn't been fit you wont get either a buff or debuff, and if you're wearing armor fit for another person, you'll get an uncomfortable debuff which makes stamina recover slower (because your boots are the wrong foot size lol, recover stamina in that!) Tool tlc's like hatchets and picks and chainsaws, for stone tools, adding more fiber lashing and straps can increase durability quality, after an item has been crafted, you can use the Aberration Pliers on them and 50% of the crafting material required to create it, to raise the quality level of the item by a maximum of 1 permanently (unless it's already ascendant) (primitive -> Ramshackle, can't upgrade further) Charge batteries can be recharged by placing them in an appliance that can use them (Fridges, Air Conditioners, etc) and turning a generator on (IRL most devices that use batteries can recharge those batteries just by plugging them in) Lastly, the idea of substitute materials. You can make a longneck with Metal Ingots, Hide and wood already. But if you made the longneck with hide, Fungal wood and Scrap Metal Ingots, it's stats should be different. (you can already craft them but they're identical) Fungal wood is tougher and more sturdy (durability up) And scrap metal comes from Tek Structures that have been salvaged, (ruins across sanctuary and TEK dinos) and smelts at a 1:1 ratio. Using Scrap Metal forged from that stronger metal then should give a dmg up boost by say... 5 or 10% at most.
  15. I got a simple one. The island Ark that landed is the original ark we started on assuming we played it in order right? How many of us have cloning chambers and teleporters at our home base? Problem solved (those are still standing as the ark's come to rest on the surface)
