  1. Are you talking about pvp or pve?

    PvP = Do Not Solo

    PvE =

    • Unofficial.  Do not think you will get ahead on any official as a solo player.  Official rates are awful. 
    • Any map is good but I prefer Shigo Islands clustered with other maps.  Shigo is unpopular with crowds because it's so niche so lots of space all to yourself.
    • Use battlemetrics to help but remember you might not see all the unofficial mods that go with the server.  I got around this problem by doing something maybe I should not advice other players to do.  So take with grain of salt.  I loaded in every high population unofficial and their suggested mods.  It took a few days.  Then I went and picked which unofficial servers looked to have what I wanted most (for solo play get increased rates especially character experience and dino tame).  Then I got lucky as I loaded the unoff I wanted I had the mods it required.
    • In the past I have had trouble running unofficial because mods would not load.  Been having more luck lately.  Solo unoff and get ahead without tribal help.  People are friendly can still answer your q&a in chat.



  2. I don't play around with this in Ark but I have in other games and often it helps to reduce the colors.  Don't know if it would help in Ark but worth try.

    • Most photographs have a color depth of 16 million colors and can be decreased to 256,000 (256K) colors without significant quality reduction. Going below 256K colors, however, can make the image appear jagged, grainy or discolored.
    • The number of colors is determined by the "pixel depth," which is the amount of color for each pixel. The higher the pixel depth, the more detail in the photograph.
    • Non-photographic images are generally 256K or lower because they do not require as much detail.

    Many free online programs will do a color reduction for your pic.

  3. Nope my character still pops up. 

    I can control it a little bit better now if after choosing "lay down in bed" from the options wheel I DEPRESS "E" VERY VERY QUICKLY.  Still does not always work.  Especially if there is any server lag at all.  But I get to lay down in the bed a wee bit more often now. 

    The problem is, to hover over the wheel option you have to be PRESSING "E" and to lay down you have to be PRESSING "E" but to stay laying down you have to not be PRESSING "E" at all.  My char pops up on the DEPRESS.

    Have a video showing my char popping up out of the bed but useless cause no way to show what mouse and keyboard I'm pressing.  

    I had assumed everyone had the same problem.

    Weirder still sometimes my char will lay in the bed for a minute before popping up.  Think that is server lag tho.

  4. Have same problem. 

    On Valguero when it opened me and another guy was staking our claims next to each other.  Get along fine.  He's great.  But he left his raft by my "hut" during the gold rush.  Now the hut is my base and my pets get stuck coming and going on his raft.  He logs and renders his raft.  I am certain he forgot it exists.  Cannot catch him online he comes and goes.  

    Thinking about this method I used once for someone else:  Tame a low level pter.  Change it's name to "u forgot ur raft."  Fly it in tow with follow and park it in his fort.  Unclaim.  Fly out on the Lead.  Can even leave a "note" inside the inventory on an unclaimed with plz and ty's.  Claimer will get the note when they claim; note does not disappear (tested).  Think that is a peaceful method not harassing.

    But never leave a talking parasaur that just provokes hostile feelings.  Uck.

  5. I was not talking about the regular event; the boring same ol same ol xp get more meats and hide event they've been doing FOREVER.  I was talking about an owl event where you get owls and saddles.  Might be an unofficial mod that has it's own events maybe so never mind.  Yeah, another evo event.  Yippi.

  6. update:

    Logged out and back in and found my materials in my own inventory but not in the storage unit's inventory.  This is the second time this week this has happened.  Items are in your inventory but invisible to you.  I think it might be related to making folders in the crafting section of your inventory.  Or it might be some kind of new lag bug with Valguero.  I only have this problem on Val's maps so placed the info here.

  7. Overweighted For No Reason

    Created a favorite folder in the craft section of my inventory.  Put in the constructions I craft most often.  Went to build something.  Went back to storage and constructed from that favorite menu.  Said I was over weighted.  Put everything back in storage got on Pter.  Said we were overweighted.  Wash rinse repeat until I have only ghillie armor on and a few tools.  Still says I am overweighted.  Same weight does not move.

  8. Water can be such a weird thing to deal with in this game.  I can tell you this much.  The water reservoirs are filling up with a TINY bit of water every time you walk out of render distance even if it does not rain ever.  It is so small it only avails you a drink.  That is what I do know.

    Now for speculation.  If it does not rain you cannot keep Plant Species X going.  Someone correct me if wrong but I believe this and all plants must have a regular source of water?  So that looking at the plant box it is planted in your see the word "irrigated."  If you do not see irrigated then no it cannot support plant life.

    Now I do not know if the metal reservoir has a better containment or is just stronger.  I assumed stronger only with nothing different than the stone.

    I am talking all this assuming you cannot run a pipe to a river or lake.
