  1. It doesn't seem like it is any better if you put in more than one at a time.
  2. Tired of all these nerfs. You've nerfed both velonosaur and mana into the ground. At what point do you stop and think that maybe your solution should be something more like an actual counter. There was never anything wrong with these two creatures, you just didn't give pvp a counter. I have no hope at this point for any of this getting turned around because you just cater to pvp at every corner. Even if something is built for PvE it tends to get nerfed anyway because of PvP meta. It's not fun anymore.
  3. Skeleton Dinos not only seem super rare on aberration, but I noticed with my friends that when a skeleton dinosaur does spawn (we've seen a single bone stego btw) we see NON aberrant dinosaurs spawn around then too. We were very confused about the wild normal stego. We've seen no skeletal carnos, raptors, or trikes. Just a single stego and it's non aberrant friends.
  4. Will we get special colors with the Genesis Chronicles? , like with the Extinction Chronicles?
  5. Dune Loot Crates Noticed the desert dune drops are deep sea loot drops, which is full of weird gear like mosa saddles, scuba... stuff I don't need for this map. While there's a lot of stuff useful for Scorched, there's a lot of really.. junk stuff if you compare it to the usefulness of the island. A) Will this ever change? B) Can I change it? I'm vaguely recalling a way to change loot drop contents for a server, if someone can help me verify how, or if it's possible. Thank you!
  6. Yes but that's a terrible comparison and saying they should chain their employees to a desk is cruel. They have lives and families, treat people with respect.
  7. Wow aren't you a barrel of sunshine. What kind of person suggests something that cruel, angry or not. Messed up.
  8. I didn't get to spend as much time with the modded map as I wanted, sadly. I'll take your word on some of these things. Reapers, iirc, were never planned to be added. Rock drakes were though. I could be wrong. The boss thing I think was the map maker's doing. I'm curious about it, but it seems a bit "eh" to see these maps not get their own unique bosses. Griffin was made for ragnarok, where as ice wyverns were reskinned/remaed for ragnarok so technically they are exclusive to Ragnarok. I don't know about resources, I know stuff was reworked. There are basilos on the map, ocean cave. Haven't seen meagalanias tho :C It's a shame to hear they removed so much more in terms of resources. I know the map maker is making a 'companion' mod that will add rock drakes back in, but otherwise I don't know what will be readded. It's still a wonderful map and the idiot arguing with everyone because other mod-made maps havent been updated can scream into the void all they want. It's new content and there's more to come for fixes and content anyway.
  9. From my understanding, the modders who made the map are actively asking their community to send them bugs and broken things for them to get fixed, even I have sent them bugs. I understand frustrations about rag/center not getting updated with their issues, but don't take it out in such a rude way that comes off so disrespectful. Speak your opinion but do it respectfully and all that jazz, politeness goes further. Someone who comes in and just yells their head off about how much they hate something or how much something sucks will probably get ignored. It's not constructive. It's just noise. Ced has mentioned before that the wildcard team is divided into different groups of people working on different parts of the game. There's folks working on meshing, while other folks work on new content or on exploits or w/e. The modders who made the map spent a long time building it, they arguably did the heavy lifting without any interaction with wildcard up until the past few months to make it official. Have some faith, report the bugs politely, and be patient. We've gotten a lot of interesting features added so far this year from content and even just general fixes for exploits and optimization. The numerous amount of fixes in the patch notes is a blessing to see.
  10. Valguero was made by modders who put love into their map, without the expectation it would be added as an official map. Saying it's everything wrong with ark is disgustingly disrespectful to the mod devs who made it. They don't work for wildcard, keep your beef with wildcard out of their hard work.
  11. Unnofficial Island, PC Defeated Alpha Dragon with a 9 person tribe
  12. So...magna pede cuz word play and they are gonna be large? I can get behind that I s'pose. Glad those hands face the right direction
  13. Event boss, which isn't added here. Those give a really good drive for spending time with the event.
  14. My guess is they don't know what is causing it and they are trying to find a solution to it. They could be having a hard time replicating it themselves so that they can try to see what's going on.
  15. If you refuse to try then that is on you. No one can help you at that point.
  16. You're probably better off submitting a ticket about this. I don't think they will say anything to you here.
  17. Rex army raising to kick some boss butt
  18. It's a setting. Pretty sure it's called Enable Flyer Carry, but I've not had my coffee and my brain is tired.
  19. Same here, flashing textures. EDIT: fixed the homestead thing... thanks gportal. Also noticed I can't seem to place any homestead items lately... Not just me, but my server members too. We don't have S+ on the server we are experiencing this bug.
  20. It's been a good handful of months since I touched Crystal Isles. The map is beautiful, it has a lot of cool features. But the last I saw it isn't done, it isn't optimized, and it has buggy fog. From my understanding the mod author for the map was hired by either wildcard or grapeshot already (I forget which company, they mod author posted about it on Twitter though). They recently mentioned they are continuing work on Crystal Isles. I think the mod could make an interesting addition to the game. It's different from any other official map. It just needs a lot of work done for it's completion and it needs it done fully and properly. Not a rush like Ragnarok. It's good to let wildcard know you want the map as officially, but be mindful of pressuring. The more you push, the more rushed things become and the more corners that get cut. My case in point being Ragnarok... There's a lot of missing features that I wish they would go back and add or clean up. I'm hopeful for some new maps, though. I'm hopeful for Crystal Isles to succeed.
  21. Tamed some ocean dinos with a friend and hatched enough rex eggs that I could feed an army. Didn't get a single useful mutation - unofficial
  22. Hey there OP, here's some things that helped me optimize my Ragnarok map. Having read your other comments I do see it's issues with your players as well, so I'll give two kinds of advice: Server side and client side. Client side is my usual go to when someone has a problem. What's your computer's specs? Are you running 8gb ram? If so, you need more Ram. That's not enough for ark since your GPU/System is also using that ram. I doubled my ram and I very rarely get DC/d or lag anymore. Additionally, AMD or Nvidia? AMD is finicky and you need a special command ran via steam at the start of ark that greatly reduces issues that occur with an AMD card and Ark (Wildcard please). Verify your files!!! Do this weekly, make sure you have all your files validated in steam. This causes SO many problems and is fixed so easily (you just have to wait!). Server side? It could be different things! What mods do you have? Who is your server provider? What settings have you adjusted. Someone suggested halving your dino count and this could help, but it severely effects your experience. I personally suggest removing dinos that you hate, since the kibble doesn't work the same anymore. This doesn't effect your dino counts of other dinos and everyone ends up happy on your unofficial server! Ignore people who mock others who remove dinos, it's your unofficial server, do what you want. Check with your server host, there might be something they can do to help you out. When I've exhausted all my sources of 'fix it' I go to my server host. They often have solutions. If you are server savvy and you don't happen to have a host, but instead you are the host with your own machine, check your server machine's specs and make sure its up to the task properly to host everyone trying to play! I don't know enough or anything about hosting your server with your own machine, so if this is the case, take a day or two to look into it and make sure everything is right as rain. When was the last time you did a dino wipe? Do them regularly. In an area with intense structures? That's causing the lag since it has to load in the base (especially bad if you have low ram. There's an area of our map with a building that one of my server members just cannot go near). Most often times that you get crashes from an unofficial that effect everyone it's your mods. Your mods could be outdated or causing conflicts with other mods. Double check them, if you have them, and make sure they are compatible or in the right load order. I hope this helps and you find a solution to your lag
  23. Skylord is flaky, it does spawn on unofficial, but I think its single player games that are having the bad end of the stick where it either doesn't spawn or takes 84 years to spawn. Major patches are great, major bug fixes are great, but the little bugs need some love to. They are small things that can be release in one big update and the community would greatly appreciate it. Even if there is no plans of ascensions/content updates to Scorched earth, at least go in and hammer out the bugs.
  24. Was Prim+ crash fix I believe.
