  1. Yeah, on the unofficial where I play, for a long time the frame rates in the Island redwoods was God-awful (LOW single digits) every time I went there. Turned out that the beehives were the problem. For each visible "hive", the game was actually rendering well over a hundred copies at the same location. Multiply that by up to four hive attachments per tree, times hundreds of trees, and the total number of beehives was actually in the tens of thousands. I was able to get an admin to look at the problem, and he used console commands to wipe all the hives. After which, my frame rates returned to
  2. I'd watch an Ark movie. As long as they don't get Uwe Boll to direct it.
  3. So, yesterday, Steam downloads an 11GB patch for ARK. And today? a 64-BYTE patch. DILO?
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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!
  8. I play on The Island on unofficial. Yesterday, I decided it was time to get our tribe a second Tapejara. Our first one was tamed by a [now inactive] tribe member, and is fairly high-level (in the 90's now, IIRC). So, I get the necessary supplies together: ghillie suit, allosaur kibble, narcotics, tranq darts, bola, etc. Then hop on an argent and start flying around areas where I've seen them previously (north side of the Redwoods, and the forest just to the east). Well, every time I spotted one, it was either VERY low-level (e.g. 2 to 6), and/or got spooked by some other wild creature and
