  1. kapros are easy to sort out and heres my, have your tame on follow and nuetral, and it can kill the kapro, kapros dont have much health. i have an asc pistol and shotty which can kill a 150 in 3 shots of the pistol, and one shot of the shotty. as for swarms, a torch will easily take care of swarms, that and a capable tame, raptors and their AOE pounce attack are great for swarms. as for the arctic. it really depends on your luck in whats around you when you spawn. i tend to build in high places where stuff cant get me, worse i had to fear was yutys, but without their carnos they are not that d
  2. my friend, some people like a challenge, and dont just wanna sit and cower on a sea stack until they get to metal tier. i love a challenge, one of the reasons why i play ark. yes the artic is not easy, for most, but experienced players can easily survive in the artic when starting off.
  3. nah, i find artic to be the easiest and funnest biome to live in, bog after that.
  4. this is gonna be a doozy. so i finally managed to get genesis on my PS4, even tho fate seemed determine to prove otherwise. i loaded in the map for the first time, crashed. This happened 4 more times before i finally loaded into the bog, i died and decided to respawn in the arctic, crashed. so i reset my world, made a ne character and started again. i spawned in the bog and made my way to the dodoball mission, there i slowly made a makeshift wooden base surrounded by spikes. i tamed a raptor, it got kaproed, tamed another, it got kaproed, this went of for some time. i'd tame a raptor, and it'd
  5. so the download is about 17.5GB, that seems doable with the internet i'll be using. thanks for the help.
  6. how big is the installation for the map, and aprox how much internet data would it use. because i'll be using my hotspot to do the download.
  7. so if i buy genesis on the store, will i have to install the map or will it already be there?
  8. So im going to buy the genesis season pass for my PS4, since i wont have my PC set up any time soon. however i have a few issues and questions i need to have sorted before i bother purchasing the dlc and installing it. firstly. when i went to check how much space was left in the console and how much space ark was taking up. something did not make sense. i have scorched, abb and extinction bought and installed along with the base game. i looked up how muhc each DLC and the game take up on the console and i compared it to how much it was taking up on my PS4. what baffled me was that there was li
  9. ok, so im going to try an explain this as simple as possible. from what i have been learning about coding in game assets. ones like the creatures in ark. stats and colour are characteristics. when the babies hatch from the eggs they seem to inherit their parents characteristics AKA stats and colours from its parents. the odds for what exactly it inherits from it parents may not be 50/50 for both parents but still. now assuming the eggs layed by the parents dont already have code which results in them inheriting the parents characteristics and we just cant see them. then WC would just have to c
  10. i have been learning a lot lately about asset characteristic inheriting when coding video games. from what i know, the babies inherit certain characteristics from their parents this would be their stats, colours and potentially gender, however gender is not a given as it may just be coded that there is a 50/50 chance the baby will be a male or female in the coding. but back to the point. im assuming and to me this would seem the more efficient and easy way. is for them to just code the eggs to inherit the characteristics of the parents. now this is assuming its not already done. eggs may alrea
  11. i was actually talking about this with a friend on discord. i assume they will change the code so layed eggs will be assigned actual characteristics like the babies when layed, instead of the baby being assinged the characteristics only after it has hatched
  12. so with the announcement of the new incubator coming in Gem P2 i am super hyped, its gonna make breeding so much easier, no more mass hatching eggs to hunt for mutations. since we will be able to see the colour and stat that the mutation will give then im going to assume we will also be able to view info like the eggs stats, region colours, level and gender. Now that we have an incubator it would be cool if we got some kind of way to automatically collect eggs. maybe have the incubator have different craft-able upgrades. like an upgrade that can further increase the incubation speed of the egg
  13. ummm, the image showing the new creature is a bit freaky, kind of unexpected from WC. to make an image like that. new brown undies affect monster incoming.
  14. i suggest playing unofficial server, great servers and much better than official ones. however im assuming the pillar issue was because you were playing on official.
  15. i've heard that the mining tool from gen is good at collecting element dust, but i have not seen heard or tried it myself. from what a friend claims. its the best way to gather element dust from the tables, chairs and what not on extinction.
  16. so the day of reckoning came. whether it was for me and my deino army or the dodorex. i had tamed a quetzal and spent a few hours building a pen that i could carry my deinos on, the maximum was about 30ish. the plan was i would ride on the queztal which also had some turrets on it, whistle the deinos at the dodorex and they would charge off of the platform and attack. well about 10 minutes later and he is already dead. only a few died in the process and the rest were fairly fine, a few were badly hurt, but other than that we were unscathed. i decided to bring a deadon along on the next battle
  17. when you have done as much breeding as i have it become as easy as taming something. also since i was on single player i done what i usually do to make it as fast as breeding on servers. i used slomo and players only. ik it sounds like cheating but when you play offline it gets annoying.
  18. so i decided to return to ark and give it another go. first thing i considered doing was making my way through to beat all the bosses first. then i realized the fear event would be around the corner, so i decided to plan on ways i could defeat the dodorex. as i was talking to a friend he suggested using creatures that have bleed effects, my first thought was allos or carnos, but my friend suggested deinos, then being smaller and potentially harder to hit and over all easier to breed. i figured sure why not. so i spent 2 whole days grinding wild deino nests, using a method i commonly use when h
  19. hmm, i use syntacs method and it seems to work fine. thx for the new info tho, gonna add it into my breeding journal. np, always love helping out fellow breeders. yes it is a very tedious task and can be very dependent on luck, but its worth all the time.
  20. this may be considered cheating, but when you play single player and the game running while offline is not an option, i tend to use slomo and players only with egg layers, it does not work well with live births for obvious reasons. this tends to always land me a stat mut i am looking for. but yes. i tend to have 50 females and how ever many males is required to get all the fems breeding, depending on dino size. i can usually allocate 5 fems per male. this is each stat group. i'll try and find a screen shot i took when breeding gigas. it was a complete and total utter cluster f*ck.
  21. so i should have probably mentioned this before, its not guaranteed the offspring inherit the parents mutations, also, an offspring can result in getting a new mutation while not inheriting the parents mutation, you can also have an offspring inherit say 4 of the 5 melee mutations from the dad, then gain a new random mutation. also if you are going for the 20 mutations cap thin because its the max allowed, there is a way to avoid this. its shown in the video and i always forget which side exactly you have to transfer them to, but you can stack one of the ternal mutation sides onto the other so
  22. watch this my friend, it will help you alot. but to put it simply. find the lowest lvl possible creature you need on ur server, so if its 5x, lvl 5, then, tame it, however, you wanna hit it till its effectiveness is 0% then breed the oxygen of that creatures into the final mutation breeders. if you want to go crazy with muts, have a group for each stat, so the melee group would have 5 females and 1 male, all with identical stats. then you want to end up with a male with a melee mutation, if you end up getting a female, you can do 2 things, breed it with a male till ya get a male offs
  23. simple, remove the suicide button
  24. wrf wc, only 2 creatures, i can name at least 5 creatures which direly need a tlc megalodon mosasaur plesiosaur carno bronto quetzal pteranodon mammoth spider onyc dilo icthy with such a large roster of creatures that NEED a freakin tlc, you only chose 2. i bet ya they are not even ones that need a tlc.
