Hippopotamus Gorgops - The River Behemoth!
Alshroom posted a suggestion in Creature submission archiveI think we can all agree that the dinosaurs are the most attention-grabbing thing in the game, and I get it, they're cool. However, I believe that the mammals deserve to be loved too, and what better way to do it than by adding a new member to their ranks, and a pretty good one at that! I present to you... That's right! We're getting a hippo in the game, hopefully. Let's not get ahead of ourselves though, first we need to talk more about our chunky friend over here. As you've read, it can't be tamed by the ol' tranq and feed, instead I thought of something to make it stand out from the rest of the mammals. Much like the Wyverns and their many predecessors, it must be raised in orden to tame it, making it the first mammal to have the raise-only taming method. And I know what you're thinking, 'wouldn't it be dangerous to separate a future killing machine from its family of killing machines?' to which I answer 'Yes. A lot.', but don't fret, as in exchange for performing such a treacherous task successfully, you'll be rewarded with one beast of a creature! Be it for traveling across the land, gathering and transporting resources or turn the tides of a battle in your favor, Hippopotamus Gorgops won't dissapoint. Now, let's go into a little more detail about its abilities. 1. Mouse Left Click (Tap): This is your standard bite attack used by 90% of ARK's wildlife, still, you should never underestimate the power of a hippo's jaws. 2. Mouse Left Click (Hold): This is another bite attack, but not an ordinary one, mind you. The longer you hold the button, the more powerful the attack will be, culminating in a massive bite, capable of damaging up to stone structures. 3. Mouse Right Click: This allows it to carry any small to medium-sized creatures in its jaws. 4. Passive Hyperthermic Insulation: Similar to their modern relatives, Hippopotamus Gorgops have a special sweat that gives them resistance to UV rays, which they can share with their rider, protecting them both from high temperatures.
Dinocrocuta, the giant hyena
Seurat posted a suggestion in Creature submission archiveWild: For a long time, I belived that hyaenodons are the only hyena species of the ARKs. Howewer a tribe recently led me to the habitat of these giant beasts, and I spent weeks studying their behaviour. Like modern day hyenas, these animals also live in groups led by females, which are bigger than males, and have a strong mane running through the top of their necks. They are not exteremly agressive animals, but if something gets too close to them, it better be a fast runner, otherwise it will end up as the dinner of them. While studying them, I was lucky enough to see a pack stand their ground against two tyrannosaurus, which probably thought that the giant hyenas will be an easy meal, like their smaller cousins. I only realised the immerse bite force of these mammals after seeing this fight. A dinocrocuta can break the leg of even a t-rex with ease by only one or two bites. In this time, I also found out that these giants share an other infamous ability with their present day relatives. The dinocrocuta will start to "laugh" if it feels threatened, which is one of the most terrifying sounds on the ARKs. Tamed: Once tamed, the dinocrocuta will become a very useful animal in many unique ways. Their body structure allows them to gallop for a long time with a good speed, making them a decent travelling companion. But their greatest strenght is their bite, which will pierce through any armor with ease. I even heard rumors about dinocroutas chewing their way through walls, but I never experienced this myself. While most survivors use them in fights, some found out that these hyenas love to chew on armors or tools if given the chance, leaving behind only the materials. Because of this, some tribes give their unwanted items to their hyenas, and collecting the recources after the dinocrocuta is done with them. Meanwhile, others trained their dinocrocutas to lach on to wild animals, and the hyenas can often hold them down for a time long enough to knock out the dinosaur. Overview: The dinocrocuta would be a giant hyena, reaching the high of a human. Males and females would look and ackt like different, females being slightly larger with a mane on their necks, and only they could make an alfa howl, referencing to modern hyenas, which live in a matriarchal rule. They could have a pack boost, and their bite could cause some sort of bleed or slowing. They would have a good health and really good meele with slighter weight and movement speed. While running, they would lose almost no stamina. Their laugh would be able to scare away creatures up to raptor size, and maybe give a slight debuff to bigger animals. They would be able to turn items and armor back to materials, maybe giving back a little more than the grinder. They would also have a pack boost and it would be able to hold creatures (maybe even carry really small ones in its mouth), by pinning them to the ground. You would be able to send more dinocrocuta in on one dino (for larege creatures, it would only be possible this way), and they would be able to hold the dino for more time. Te pinned animal's stamina would drain down in the process. Armors, saddles and reduced damage taking creatures (like stego) also wouldn't be safe from it as it would be able to deal only slightly reduced damage to them (for wild creatures it possibly wouldn't be reduced at all). Taming: To tame a dinocrocuta, you would have to feed it armor or different items (the more the item costs, the faster the process), then it would enter a friendly state, where you would have to help it patrol its territory, and prevent anything from stepping in it (the hyena would walk in circles, showing the border of their territory). If you do help it for an amount of time, it would become tamed. Utility: Because of its great meele, the dinocrocuta would be useful for bossfights and PVP. It would also be helpful in grinding unwanted items and loot, and it could break structures up to iron tier (but iron would take a long time to break). Its ability to pin down creatures would be a big help in taming, because if you have enough of them they would be able to hold the creature for the whole knocking out process. And because its damage wouldn't really be reduced by anything, it would be really useful in any fight.
Hello, I'm here again to present a new updated look at my first submission from the Lost Island vote: (Re)Introducing Olorotitan, every survivor's dream and every carnivore's nightmare! Transcript: Common name: Olorotitan Species: Olorotitan resonacarmen Time: Late Cretaceous Diet: Herbivore Temperament: Territorial Wild: "Whenever somebody asks me what I believe to be the most powerful herbivore on the Ark, one of the first creatures that come to mind is Olorotitan resonacarmen. Between its impeccable physical capabilities, thick hide and it's unique ability to rally other herbivores to aid it in combat, even some of the larger carnivores like Tyrannosaurus struggle to bring this titanic beast down." "Olorotitan can often be seen with a group of about two to three Parasaurolophus aroud it. It is likely that the Parasaurs recognize the Olorotitan as a source of protection and choose to stay nearby to remain safe from predators." Domesticated: "Taming an Olorotitan is no easy feat. They are highly aggressive towards anything that isn't an herbivore. I have heard many stories about unprepared survivors who died trying to domesticate this creature. Despite this, there are some tribes who have successfully obtained one. They say that if you bring a tamed herbivore with you, the Olorotitan will not see you as a threat and allow you to approach it and begin the taming process." "Once domesticated, an Olorotitan is quite the formidable creature for any survivor to have in their arsenal. Its large size allows it to carry loads of resources. Some survivors even equip their saddles with bags to carry large quantities of food to feed other allied creatures on the move. On top of its immesurable strength and endurance, it can let out various different 'songs' that can invigorate allied creatures and enhance their physical abilities." In-Game Info: -Size: approx. Rex/Yuty size -Taming: The Olorotitan will initially be aggressive when encountered, but when in the proximity of a tamed herbivore, Olorotitan will enter a passive state and will approach you. when this happens, the Oloro will be able to be fed. Follow the Oloro until tamed -Preferred Kibble Type: Exceptional -Extra Notes: In the wild, Olorotitan will be surrounded by 2-3 Parasaurs. If you attack/kill one, this will instantly aggro the Oloro and chase you down to kill you. Offensive Abilities: -Bite/Scratch: standard melee attack, harvests berries, fiber, wood, and thatch -Stomp: performs a big stomp that can deal AOE damage; harvests stone, flint, metal, and crystal -Titan's Song: cycles through 3 different calls that can provide buffs to allied creatures -Defensive Song: minor damage reduction to allies for a few seconds -Invigorating: minor speed boost and stamina use for a few seconds -Intimidating: stuns enemy creatures in place for a few seconds Passive Abilities: -Mobile Feeding Trough: Saddle functions as a mobile feeding trough to feed allied creatures while on the go. -Weight Reduction: reduced weight on several resources and food items . -Carnivore Scorn: Does slightly more damage to carnivorous animals; only effects Olorotitan. -Fearless: immune to Yutyrannus' Fear debuff Extra Information: -Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olorotitan Thank you for taking the time to read this over! If you want to see this get added to the game, feel free to give it a vote! it would mean the world to me!
