  1. The devs don't hate Aberration. They have taken steps to keep it alive and well by removing some of its creatures from maps like Valguero and Crystal Isles to keep it from dying off entirely like Scorched, which only has the Phoenix as unique content. Yeah, they don't pay a lot of attention to it, but they pay even less attention to the Island, the Center, Scorched, and Ragnarok nowadays. Aberration is better off than those maps right now, and is one of the best maps in the game. It's supposed to be a tough and unfriendly map, same as the badlands on Extinction or the Space Biome on Gene
  2. No, we care, but like you said, it's been 6 years. Ark is really only for masochists at this point, so if you don't like prolonged BDSM, you might as well just uninstall. There really isn't a whole lot we can do at this point, lots of us have already bought the game and its DLC. Unless the Dom Devs decide to rework and recode the game for some reason, the game will likely stay in this state for the rest of its life.
  3. Honestly, makes no sense that Parasaurs can detect hidden/buried targets. They should really take another look at this ability, maybe only make it work on moving targets or something.
  4. Enjoying a game often means accepting it has big flaws. I have 5k hours on Ark and love the game, but it's so messy and broken my rating is 2 stars because I wouldn't recommend it to most people and don't agree with how they handle the game and its balance.

    Human breeding?

    Maybe making them in a biochamber or something, but definitely not breeding. Sacrificing all the little helpless babies to the jaws of my Giga doesn't really sit right to me as a feature in Ark.
  6. Veggie Cakes are awesome, especially for Dragon and Overseer fights when using Therizinos. Plus, they're used to tame Ovis and Achatina, two very useful creatures once you get your hands on them. Seeing as how Achatina can produce Cementing Paste for basically free, I think having them only eat Sweet Veggie Cakes is a good balancing factor, at least for the servers I've played on(We don't have any huge Alpha tribes churning out innumerable resources).
  7. Except I have played Crystal Isles, and I have never had this happen, so my opinion here is valid. Plus, even if I had never played CI, I would still make taming pens, it's just standard procedure.
  8. It literally would fix the problem for you... I don't honestly know what you expect to be changed here, I've personally never had this happen to me when taming Ember Wyverns.
  9. Yeah, it may not be connected to gameplay, but herbivores IRL need MUCH more food to keep themselves sustained than carnivores do. I think that's the general idea behind the increased costs for taming herbivores compared to carnivores. Does it make much sense in terms of gameplay? Not entirely, but it has always made more sense to me regardless.
  10. I think the kibble tree is good as is, I do think Gigas should be in the Extraordinary tier though. If the Yuty is up there, the Giga definitely should be.
  11. Just make more. More forges, more preserving bins, more everything that you need. Adding more forges decreases the amount of time it takes to smelt 10K metal, and having 10 preserving bins means you're getting 10x the amount of jerky in the same time. I know it isn't the best or most resource efficient solution, but it's the one that works best for me. I have a huge platform with 6 industrial forges open to the air seeing as how I don't have to worry about other players.
  12. Fear Evolved has always been my favorite event, the DodoRex has always been a cool fight(Especially for testing my armies and their strength) and I love the Alpha level Herbivores walking around. Really makes me wish Alpha Herbis were part of the base game. I can also get free Veggie Cakes from drops to tame Ovis with(I usually don't bother making cakes, since I use Rexes for boss fights).
  13. Yeah, feel like a solid map structure(Or a thicker map structure in general) would really help with all of the meshing issues in the game. Right now you can move around underneath the ground relatively freely(Assuming you don't get anti-meshed), and it's entirely open space.
  14. Literally impossible. Especially if you want inter-species breeding.

    Human breeding?

    Hopefully not. Seems so out of place for Ark, more of a Conan Exiles concept.
  16. Tons of tribes use the Parasaur for its sonar ability nowadays. It's an easy way to find hidden bases and can be obtained at almost every level. It's arguably broken with how powerful its detection abilities are.
  17. It's based off level now? I was wondering why I keep getting thagomized by Stegos while on a mount...
  18. Not quite sure if I understand the question, but if you're on Crystal Isles you can't learn the Magmasaur saddle. You have to transfer back to Genesis to learn it.
  19. Basically the entire story... To get to Scorched the survivors needed to beat the Overseer, to get to Ab they activated a platform in some ruins somewhere(Don't think it's actually present on Scorched in-game), to leave Abb they built a gateway(They had destroyed the Overseer of Aberration by overloading an Obelisk or something)
  20. Depends what level you are. For my money, Mosa or Plesi if you've got one. Otherwise, Turtles are the way to go.
  21. Ark 2 would be a weird reveal at this point, we don't even have Gen 2 yet. My hope is a recode for the game to properly iron out the bugs and balance issues we've been having for the past 5 years. All creatures getting rebalanced, all items being touched up(Seriously, things like the Assault Rifle and Electronic Spyglass need help) and other such changes would go a LONG way. Sure, recoding a game like Ark would take tons of effort, but in the end, it's probably best for Ark and possibly Ark 2 down the road, as it would show the devs truly do care about the game and community they've crea
  22. Wiki says they were supposed to be a Scorched Earth item but got scrapped for some reason, which is weird.
  23. Are you using mods? Dung Beetles can't breed normally(I'm looking at them ingame right now).
