  1. Honestly, as someone who spent a few years on Xbox running a server before moving to the PC/Steam to do so - even with all the mods out there, there isn't a single one that does everything that Prim+ does. You can create a similar feel for it, but they just aren't the same. Some have tried, but a lot of what makes Prim+ great just doesn't come through all the way. Honestly I was surprised when I moved to steam that someone hadn't already started creating a Prim+ 2.0 where all original items were included and new items were added. Instead it almost seems as though most authors are choose not t
  2. Simple Spawners would be a game changer to the Console Systems method of play. I have run a server cluster for a few years now that start out as a Crossplay cluster. The players often wanted to try the other maps so we would typically "live" on Ragnarok, and then open the other maps in turn to allow for the players to explore and tame on them. This gave them the opportunity to catch the creatures that weren't available on Ragnarok and harvest the resources they needed while it was up as well. The inclusion of Gacha's with the release of Extinction did help a bit, as you could
  3. There were so many suggestions under titled suggestion I decided it would be easiest to step back to my previous method of addressing them and responding to each individually as done so below; Now that the final chapter of ARK: Survival Evolved has been released, there's still a few things I feel are lacking, or missing, to sustain players until ARK 2. This is something that concerns me greatly. They have hinted that there are items that will be added, changed, and adjusted to continue the interest until Ark 2, but beyond the hinting towards another map being added, they have giv
  4. You seem to be referring to the Structure's Plus Pull function where you can pull items into a structures inventory or your own. This can be done to craft a specific number of items or to pull mass quantities from one point to another. It is certainly a handy function that since moving to Steam, those in my group have used on every map opened. How likely is it to come to other game play methods though? Not sure. They added the "Homestead Update" well over a year ago which was Wildcards watered-down version of Structures plus and for whatever reason, it wasn't added as a feature at t
  5. As an overall addition to the Ark: Survival Evolved Games - I would have to say that I have mixed feelings with the Genesis maps. There are a few reasons I can think of why they may have taken the direction they did. And for some, they work, and there is nothing wrong with that. To each their own. For those that like it and enjoy it, I am sincerely happy for you. For myself and the small group I play with, we weren't impressed. That can be taken as you would like. For some background information, we are not a heavy group of gamers, but casual ones that prefer the early game to end g
  6. The Structures Plus update that they released as the "Homestead Updated" wasn't really an S+ update in my opinion. Sure they copied a few of the items and abilities, but as they used so little of what S+ truly is, I don't think they can consider it the "S+ Update". They used the tag line to try and sell it as such for hype, and to a degree they succeeded. For Console players it was something. Something new when they had received so little. I know this because at the time, I was one of them. However anyone who has truly read through the S+ Mod capabilities and additions should reali
  7. Personally, I would prefer that Ark 2 go forward with eliminating the use of the Windows10 edition and instead allow crossplay between steam and Xbox as Atlas has done. It would be one less edition to worry about maintaining. And while I once hoped for the same with Ark 1, to many use it and have purchased for that reason so making that change now may not be productive. That all aside, your idea has merit. There are enough that play crossplay that it makes sense to maintain the Window10 edition and keep it up to standard.
  8. It is an amazing map. I absolutely love it! And while I would love for Console players to have a chance to play on it because it is simply amazing... the idea of doing so also worries me. Simply because several Official Map Specific creatures are on Fjordur that would most likely be pulled should the map be adapted as an Official Ark Map. That does not mean I am 100% against the idea, it is a wonderful map and sharing its unique beauty with other players would be awesome... but as stated, some features may loose out as we did with other maps as released. Personally I would
  9. I haven't posted it directly as there are many Building posts out there. Some of which I have probably noted in a similar fashion. Increasing options and fixing the building methods in Ark is by far one of my favorite discussion pieces. And having been an Atlas Grid Admin and Ark Cluster Admin for now both Steam and Xbox crossplay servers - I tend to take note of the similarities and differences between the two. There are some ways the each are the best at what the do, some things they could benefit from taking things on from the other, and others that could be made better for both
  10. Love the ideas and miss seeing these sorts of posts. Just to add a bit of additional options. Some may be a bit excessive, however having used some with Mods- they are awesome. Basically add all the building parts from Atlas, All shapes and Parts and some defenses like Behemoth walls . and add some extra things for ark Small pillars (wood, adobe, stone, metal, tek) To improve/increase pillar options... 1/2 wall Pillar Standard Pillar (1 wall high - current pillar) Short Pillar (2 walls high) Medium Pillar (2 w
  11. It is a simple request that makes sense. You do the work for the boss fight and you earn the rewards from it. As such, you should be allow to take those rewards wherever you wish. I run an unofficial cluster and our work around was to add set it so that when you defeat a boss you earn not only the drop it has by default but a chance to hear the others as well. It is not the perfect exchange as you then don't have to do the specific fight to earn the reward, but for those who have wanted to design a Trophy Room as you describe, it has worked. And because it is based on chance,
  12. Eco, the author, actually has a few mods that deal with the adding decorative items to maps. Such as Trees, Trees Lite, Wonderland, Aberration, Scorched Earth, and other such item packs. That lists also expands with Empire themed sets and such. The wishful hope is that at some point a few of the features are added for consoles to use into Ark 1 or are somehow incorporated for use into Ark 2. If you are playing on PC they are worth checking out if playing with if decorations are items you are interested in. It is true - but extremely rare. In the time that I have been playin
  13. Honestly, I would rather skins not be attached to your inventory. First Reason: They clutter your inventory when you die or transmit between maps if you don't turn them off, but at the same time, if you do - you don't have access to them. So it is an "all or nothing" situation. Second Reason: There are a lot of them them once you unlock them, and if you start including event item... Yikes Third Reason: We can already craft an awful lot in our inventories, most of which I find a bit much and as such, I am not a fan of adding too that collection more than necessary. Inst
  14. We have done the same for my cluster a few times over the last few years. Sometimes to extend an event that we were all out and traveling for, or simply because we had gone a period without one and wanted to shake things up a bit. However sometime around when Genesis 1 was released last year they did an update of some sort that started messing with the events. Since then, the only events I have been able to extend or turn on as needed/wanted have been those that were run since the most recent major optimization update. As the game is optimized it seems the events are becoming
  15. I enjoy the Christmas Event the most - however that said, I truly wish I could keep the items from that and the other events when the events end. It was fun spending the time to hunt the down when I first started playing, but now I find it a bit repetitive and a bit of a waste of time as I cannot keep the items. The time finding them can be better spent elsewhere.
