  1. Hey thanks for the video of this, really cool to see. Very interested in Genesis.
  2. Help with Ark DLC I originally played Ark on Xbox and bought it and all of it's DLC on there. I own Scorched Earth, Aberration and Extinction on Xbox. I have recently started playing Ark on PC, on the Windows 10 version, for some reason I can install and play Scorched Earth and Aberration, but not Extinction on Windows 10. I'm not sure if Extinction is playable on Windows, so my question is, will Genesis be playable on Windows if I buy the season pass on Xbox?
  3. Thanks for informing me of that because I would be contributing to that problem. I will wait patiently, I know it's a game but I do spend a lot of my time online and it is exhausting me trying to defend for so long because of people breaking the code of conduct. Thank you for some reassurance, anything would give me some hope right now...
  4. Quality Of Life Suggestions Hello I have a few suggestions I think could be really handy. [Fuel Slot] - If something takes fuel to run, there should be a separate item slot for it's type of fuel, so that transferring all items will not remove the item in the fuel slot. (Example) - A fabricator has a spare slot you can add gasoline in to and when a player transfers all from the fabricators inventory, it will not remove the gasoline. [Ammo] - If your weapon is loaded with a type of ammunition, that ammunition type will not transfer all. (Example) - My crossbow has Tranq Arrows inserted, so when I transfer my entire inventory to something else, tranq arrows will not transfer. [Tame Journal] - An option to log your tames stats after it has been tamed and a tab in your inventory for accessing that tame information. (Example) - Hold "E" and select "Options" on your tame, inside it will say "Save Tame Information". Selecting this saves your tames stats and info into the Tame Journal. [Tribe List] - Some type of inventory tab where players can have lists they can edit. (Example) - A list for priorities or notes, to keep all members on the same page. [Take All Of] - An inventory setting to take all of a specific item. (Example) - Inside an inventory select a resource, for example Hide, in the following drop down menu there is an option to "Take all Hide".
  5. Wildcard Support unresponsive.. So my tribe has been under attack for a very long time on the new Valguero-SmallTribe servers, we have been under attack by at least 7 different tribes that are involved in an alliance together and teaming which is against the code of conduct for SmallTribe servers. There are only 2-3 tribes left in their alliance, but they are continuously adding new tribes and supplying them with everything to quickly build and help them raid us. We have been defending for weeks and doing everything to be online as much as possible to avoid being offline raided, we have been compiling evidence of it all because they are getting away with teaming for such a long time and I have submitted a ticket. How long will it take for my ticket to be answered and they are forced to stop teaming, they are entirely aware it's against the code of conduct and they just don't care, if Wildcard don't respond soon my tribe will be raided offline because we can't keep this up for much longer and to lose our ability to play Ark because of teaming and no help from Wildcard support would be so unfair and quite literally depressing... My first ticket was submitted 19 days ago and my second ticket with a lot more evidence was submitted 2 days ago. Just wondering if anything can be done to have my ticket looked at or if this is normal to wait and defend my base against people violating the code of conduct for 19 days.
  6. What a map that becomes Official should include. I hope this post is in the right section of the forums. I just want to share my opinion on what should be included in a map that makes it to Official, for map creators to know what players from Official Servers enjoy utilizing. Players need areas to build, that are defend-able and flat enough to even build, tribes don't like to build on low and/or uneven ground in the open. Over the many Ark maps on Official we have come to see different ways around this, and Valguero has introduced a new method; building at the map border on high ground, this was never possible due to the Arks being surrounded in Ocean, Desert and low ground. Tribes search for places to build with "no land access" meaning the area isn't accessible by land dino's and prevents tribes from attacking you with dinos like Bronto's and Paracer's. Ark is way too easy to be raided and so tribes are desperate for these areas. Here's a list of ways to provide players defend-able base locations: [Map Border] - Land reaches to the edges of the map border rather than ocean, with high build-able areas. (without land access) Think Valgueros map border and high build-able areas. [Plateau] - Land high off the ground, high enough a Bronto is not able to reach turret range with its neck and head. (without land access) These are the most desired base locations, think of Ragnaroks Plateaus. [Caves] - Caves with small entrances, that any large or tank dino cannot fit through, but has a large enough area inside to build, breed and fit an entire base. These are the most defend-able base locations, think of Valgueros Caves. When Valguero combined great build-able caves and high plateaus at the map border, tribes built in those locations instantly, allowing more than just one or two tribes a safe base location and meant more tribes can survive on each server.
  7. Unfortunately I can't agree with these settings. - 5 Max Players Per Tribe We literally already have that on SmallTribes, how can the developers promote new 5 player tribe servers? That's no different and isn't applicable to the majority of players. - Everythings x2/x4 5 Players with x4 rates, against 2 Players with x4 rates, is an extremely large discrepancy that is only catering to the largest tribes. Even if it was 3 or 4 player tribes x3 and x4 consistently is way too much... Way too much. Like wow... - Nerf extinction or delete Tek There are "NoTek" servers that you can play if this is what you want, these are not popular because the majority of players enjoy Tek and that is a lot of content to experience. - 3x/4x Offline Turret Damage Why skip x2, I understand why offline turret damage could be good, but you completely skipped x2 and went to x3/x4 like earlier, which is unbalanced. You're promoting really unbalanced things and inputting your wrong opinion where someone else has given their opinion that has been asked for. Toxic behaviour.
  8. I didn't state at all that this was for Solo Tribes & Players. I didn't state at all these rates and specifications had to stay exactly how I have suggested, I actually stated they should be subject to change.. Not everyone is interested in just Solo and there are more modes than just Solo for people to play and when any game mode is made as Solo I am certain they would tweak settings to make it work for Solo, you can relax. Specific raids would be perfect for all of the players who can't dedicate as much time as you or people with less responsibilities, like jobs, children, schools etc. There doesn't have to be a single specific raid time, there could be multiple, they could be random, like I said all of these things should be subject to change. Stronger turret damage opposed to the current state of SmallTribes in which a single tribe is able to wipe an entire map? Yeah you are entirely wrong once again. The developers are trying to cater to the entire community and especially those that can't currently play how they like, which isn't the case for Solo players, there are solo servers. You should really stop denying other peoples ideas when you don't have a legitimate reason to do so. There's nothing you said that is actually true. You're all over this thread spreading lies and giving the developers the wrong ideas. Please learn more English so I can understand and continue to converse with you.
  9. Honestly Ced the main problem with Official, further than meshing, is that it's too difficult to play unless you are apart of a large group. I think there are loads of players that just want to play Ark, but on Official servers so the progress they make is reputable, on PvE and PvP. SmallTribes was a good attempt and it was so much better than playing against Mega Tribes. Initially the servers were really successful because people do want to play without Mega Tribes. That said, there were still 6 man tribes that are very good in PvP and 6 man tribes that "teamed up" and with just 2-4 players it was hard to compete, near impossible. It's too hard to survive against larger tribes or groups of trolls but I think SmallTribes was a step in the right direction, if we could change these servers settings, in favour of the "smaller" sized tribes to make it easier to survive and compete, I think it would be a lot more efficient in hosting the type of server we wanted. Here are my suggestions that I think could improve SmallTribes servers. ------- or entirely build a new game mode from scratch with. Small Tribes Update Stronger Turret Damage (Harder raiding and easier defending, it's too easy for one group to raid another, so much so they are able to wipe entire servers in such little time.) Lower Gathering, Exp & Taming rates (Consistent 3x actually ended up being too much and with 6 people, making progress came so much faster than to those with 2-4 players - Arks early days, with slow rates, actually made things more valuable and attacking more risky opposed to tribes having tonnes of throw away tames they can raid with.) Specific Raid Times (Specific raid times, for example; Raiding is only allowed on Weekends - Ark is demanding and this would give breathing room for those who can't dedicate as much time.) Offline Raid Protection (Offline Raid Protection helps against players that only want to troll.) Lower Maximum Player Tribe Count (As said previously, 6 players whether they team with another 6 or not, is a huge advantage against actual small tribes. Preferably 3-4.) Extinction Titans Untameable I really think some focus should be put on those players that want to enjoy surviving and aren't trying to wipe entire servers or solely trying to troll others, but still have the option to PvP, removing the chance of PvP removes the reward you feel for the effort and dedication you put in. Whether it's an entirely new game mode or a 2.0 version of SmallTribes, something similar to these settings could be used to make something closer to the golden age that was the early days of Ark. If we don't get to see anything like this I would also love to see a PvE mode that allows PvP on weekends or when a new mode is introduced for PvP some type of "grace period" comes with it and raiding is disabled for a week or two? Anyway I really hope this gets a read, thanks for the ongoing support to make Ark playable to the rest of the community that haven't found their place on Official yet.
  10. Definitely worth a try, I see so many players asking for a tribe to join because they're solo, or so many struggling solo and duo players, me being one of them.
  11. On the server I played, there was 3 tribes teaming, obviously before they joined they knew each other and planned an alliance. So this is 3 tribes with 6 players each, each using another exploit with which when some players aren't online, they kick them and put them in a metal box at their base and invite more players, so they each always have 6 players online and extra players than the other tribes, they all went around the map attacking every tribe they could and raiding them before anyone had turrets to defend, C4 comes easier and earlier than turrets. Players always seem to find a way to ruin Ark and it just sucks because the majority would really love to play a fair Ark and that's all we want, is to play a fair Ark... Without any negativity I just wish the developers done more to fix the Official servers, we DESPERATELY want to play Official without needing so many players. I think they can fix this exploit - When a tribe member is kicked or leaves tribe, they can't join the same tribe for a few days or a week. There's still an issue with tribes teaming prior to joining the server, I think it's good to make friends on your server but when they join the server with 3 tribes or more full of people and intend on attacking the entire server as soon as they can it just ruins the experience. If this could be toned down it would be great, maybe rebalancing turrets and explosives, or explosive damage, something to make defending your base possible at early stages. I hope Wildcard see this or just notice the exploits and attempt to fix them, that's all I can ask for. Please Wildcard, we just want to play Ark on Official.
  12. Limited These servers are to enhance PvP and make it easier to maintain a base with smaller tribes. Settings: Tribe Limit: 4-6 Players - This means enough players to maintain and upkeep a large base & dino count, without giving 1 tribe too much control of a server. - This means tribes will have less players to mount dino's and less bulk dino's making it harder to overwhelm your enemy. (My reason for 6 players instead of 4 is to allow groups of friends that are slightly larger to fit into 1 tribe.) Alliance Limit: 1 Alliance - This means you can have 4-6 teammates from another tribe and a total of 8-12 teammates in one Alliance. - This means your Alliance can't fill up a server to stop your enemies from joining and defending. Movement Speed: Player Movement capped at 119.5% - This means players cannot outrun bullets, making guns and spawn timers useful to create more balanced PvP. Fuel Consumption: Fuel Consumption Lowered - This is to make it easier for small tribes to maintain their base(s). Harvest Amount: Harvest Amount Increased - This is to account for the server being wiped monthly. I strongly believe these servers would be so popular, players would rather them not be wiped monthly. This would make Ark easier to play and harder to wipe other tribes, giving everyone a better and longer chance at surviving and ultimately: Enjoying ARK on Official! Please Wildcard, give us a chance at smaller tribes and longer lasting servers that don't get controlled by Mega tribes, we just want to play Ark!
