  1. I'd watch an Ark movie. As long as they don't get Uwe Boll to direct it.
  2. So, yesterday, Steam downloads an 11GB patch for ARK. And today? a 64-BYTE patch. DILO?
  3. Level design fixes? Hi, Haven't played the game recently, about to check in. Some of the recent patch notes for PC say "Fixed multiple level design issues related to holes, volumes, floating foliage, and more". Does anyone know whether this happened for all maps, or am I going to find the same floating foliage I've always seen on The Island?
  4. So, you are renting a single Nitrado server, and want to join it to your friend's cluster? From what I recall, you'd have to ask your friend for his Cluster ID, enter it on the CrossARK page of your Nitrado web interface, enable CrossArk, and restart. But i think you'd be better off asking on Nitrado's forums, to be certain.
  5. I can relate. This happened to me not too long ago. And I couldn't just reinstall it at the same location, Steam wouldn't recognize it and thought there wasn't enough hard disk space to install (because, with the old files still there, there wasn't). I ended up just deleting the entire installed copy and reinstalling from scratch, including all the mods. Yes, it took forever. And i was lucky in that I had a backup copy of my localprofile (with map and Explorer Note progress) on another drive. The appmanifest method above definitely sounds much easier...
  6. Personally, I really would like to see better AI and more realistic behavior on all creatures, wild and tamed. I want to believe I'm surrounded by living creatures, not mindless automatons. There ought to be baby, juvenile, adolescent, and adult forms for all wild creatures, transitioning from stage to stage at the same intervals as bred creatures, tamable at every stage, and cared for (or not) by their parents as appropriate for the species. It would be cool if both wild and tamed creatures at least went through the motions of eating and sleeping. Right now, a lot of the herbivores,
  7. Official? Unofficial? Non-dedicated server? What version is the server at?
  8. Yep, I think it was only happening while Winter Wonderland was active. Now that WW is over, the rain and show have returned!
  9. Weather effects bugged? Hi, Ever since the latest patch, I've noticed I do not get any visual effects for rain or snowstorms. I can hear the sound effects for rain or snow, but there is no precipitation falling from the sky. I am playing on unofficial, The Island map. I hadn't changed any in-game settings. I've tried adjusting my graphics options, and validating files in Steam, to no effect. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?
  10. So, on The Island (unofficial server I admin), there was this Titanosaur wandering about between two of our bases. At one point, it walked over the walls of a base as if they weren't even there, and got stuck inside for a bit before finally getting out and going on its merry way. A tribemate had been wanting to tame one for weeks, and finally convinced me to help. So, we got a Quetzal with a platform saddle, made a cannon and a bunch of cannonballs, and set off (one of us riding shotgun on the cannon, the other driving). We quickly learned that hitting a Titan in the head with cannon
  11. To be fair, these are only server-side updates, they don't always put out patch notes for those.
  12. There's been a level 40 wild Giga wandering the Island on my server for a while now, around the mountain in the northeast. Not terribly high level, considering my server multipliers, but still... a Giga. Recently, I was lucky enough to get a decent Giga saddle. So the other day, I was bored, and decided to try my hand at taming that Giga... solo. Yeah, that's right. I figured I could use the same strategy I use for taming spinos: lay out a bunch of large bear traps at the bottom of a (tall-enough) cliff... have plenty of tranq darts, narcotics, and kibble on-hand... ride my Argent, l
  13. Guys, someone on Reddit found the cause (and a workaround) for the flickering ground. See this link: https://www.reddit.com/r/playark/comments/b3wnfi/anyone_else_getting_terrain_flickering_after_the/
  14. I ran across a level 240 Castoroides, and tamed it. Great stats except for the carry weight, so I decided to start leveling that up. I went out to the thick forest near my base, used the beaver to harvest the trees until encumbered, then dropped everything from his inventory... wash, rinse, repeat. Half an hour later, this was the result: Nothing like a little total deforestation to make your day!
  15. This has been happening to me as well, ever since the "Homestead" update. Ground textures (and ONLY ground textures) will flash at random intervals, sometimes several times a second, other times it may be 20-30s or longer. Doesn't matter where I am on the Island, what I'm doing, whether I'm moving or standing still, or whether I'm on foot or on a tame. I played with every graphics setting, and updated drivers to no avail. The "flashes" are in colors and patterns that are different from the normal textures. It's almost like there are TWO sets of textures being overlaid on every ground surf
