I present to you the Blattotermes species, something never seen before in Ark: GIANT TERMITES, which I think is something that would bring a lot of exciting content to the game! HISTORICAL CONTEXT Blattotermes was a genus of prehistoric termites that inhabited North America, France, and northern Australia during the Paleocene. Today they only retain a relationship with the Mastotermes species, which is found only in Northern Australia. LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION These termites inhabit mounds in the Wasteland biome. A termite mound can be recognized by a distinctive sound when approaching, as well as being able to see worker, soldier, and spy termites around. There are different types of termites that serve different functions in the nest. TAMING To tame these creatures, you must first find one of their colonies in a mound. Hitting it with a metal axe, metal pickaxe, metal sword, or metal spear will create an ever-widening hole. Hitting it will deal damage to the player similar to collecting honey. Once the hole has been completely opened, some type of explosive must be inserted into the hole, for example throwing a grenade. When doing this, the different types of termites will begin to attack the player, in a wave system. All these creatures will be of the same level as the queen and king. 1st wave. Soldier termites and worker termites. 2nd wave. Soldier termites, worker termites, and spies termites. 3rd wave. All of the above and guards termites. Once all the termites have been eliminated, the queen termite and the king termite will appear, which are the only ones that can be tamed. In order to tame the queen termite, you will need to approach it after you have consumed an insect repellant, and feed it rhyno horns. On the other hand, the king termite is rather friendly, so it will not be necessary to use insect repellent to tame it. However, it will come out attached to the queen, and if the queen feels threatened, it will eat the king termite. It is recommended to tame the queen first, then passively tame the king with charcoal. BREEDING The king and queen Blattotermes are the only ones that can be tamed, the rest are only obtained through breeding. You can't breed kings or queens. Fertilization: the queen is rather exquisite, so to get pregnant, she must be in a dark room alone with the King, with a warm temperature. Again, they want privacy, so if you walk into the room to interrupt while they're in the act, they'll stop. The queen will lay an egg, similar to those of pulmonoscorpius. You will need to incubate it, and a baby nymph will emerge. To claim the nymph when it hatches, it must be fed a specific food that will determine what type of termite it will be. • To make it a worker termite, you must feed it with wood. • To be a soldier, the baby will have to be fed with phosphorus. • To be a spy, the baby will have to be fed with vegetables. • To be a guard, the baby will have to be fed Sarcosuchus Skin. During their growth, the type of termite will already be determined, so they all can eat wood. Except for the king and queen, termites have no gender. If a mutation occurs, it will be stored in the Queen, so the next nymph that comes out will also have that mutation unless it was previously discarded. DIFFERENT TYPES AND ROLES - Blattotermes Queen: • Temperament: run away • Diet: wood • When killing a specimen, it will drop chitin and meat. It is about the size of a Maewing and is the most disgusting termite. Its only function is to breed new termites. It cannot be mounted, and it creeps very slowly when following you. If it is near to another creature breeding, the chances of this creature's baby getting a mutation will increase on a 5%. - Blattotermes King: • Temperament: friendly • Diet: wood It is the smallest termite of all. It has the function of fertilizing the queen termite. • When killing a specimen, it will give chitin and meat. As a special ability, you can set routes for the other termites. That is, you can create a path which the termites you select will follow, in addition to establishing areas where the termites can stop for a period of time and do some type of activity that you choose on their own. For example, imagine creating a path that you want your worker termites to follow, stop at an area where there are resources, collect them for 60 seconds, drop everything they've collected in a vault, and continue on the path. Or another example, you want your termite guards to take the vault full of resources collected by the workers, bring it back to your base, empty it into other vaults in your base, and bring the vault back to where it was. This is a method to automate farming and base tasks. • The king termite is obviously not mountable, but it can be carried on the shoulder and it will be able to generate markers that will mark the path that you want to establish and the areas where the termites will stop to do activities. Each king can only create one termite path, and the higher the king's level, the longer the path he creates can be. (King and Queen) - Worker Blattotermes: • Temperament: aggressive • Diet: wood They are about the size of a thyla and can be equipped with a Blattotermes saddle to ride them. • When killing a specimen, its body will drop meat and chitin. • 30% weight reduction on wood, stone, metal, crystal and obsidian. • Left click: bite. It only damages straw and wooden structures. You can collect wood, fungal wood and thatch. It can be configured to just get one type of resource. • Right click: headbutt. If held down, he will lunge along with the headbutt, dealing more damage and granting more resource pickup. Damages thatch, wood and stone structures. You can collect stone, flint, metal, crystal, rare mushrooms, obsidian, and oil. It can be configured to just get one type of resource. • If there is a group of 3 to 5 worker termites, the one with the highest level will be the leader of the group, so the rest will follow what the leader does if they are on a route established by the king termite (so as not to having to configure all the termites to follow the route). All party members will receive a 10% buff upon increased resource collection and an additional 20% weight reduction on wood, stone, metal, and crystal. • X: the leader can activate an extra buff that will cause stasis in all the termites in the group, causing the weight of what they carry in their inventory to be reduced by 90% for 30 seconds. It has a cooldown of 90 seconds. • C: If you press C in front of a wall, you will be able to climb walls and ceilings without consuming energy. If the leader of the group switches to climbing mode, the rest will also climb. • 30% armor to attacks. • If they are on one of the routes created by a king termite, they will be able to stop at a point to collect resources that are in the area for a certain time. In addition, before returning to the road, they can be configured to leave the collected in a vault. • However, one of the points on the route must be a rest area, since 8 hours (of ARK) a day, they must rest. This is ONLY if they are on a route. If the leader goes to rest, the other members will copy it. They can also be put to rest manually. • The idea is that these termites collect less material than other farming animals (less metal than an ankylo or less wood than a teryzino), but having the possibility of combining with farming routes means having a passive farming that will give better results and comfort. • If they are part of a group, and another of the termites in the group dies, they will receive a sadness buff for 90 seconds, which will give a 40% speed reduction, a 30% increase in vulnerability to damage and a 25% damage reduction. - Soldier Blattotermes: • Temperament: aggressive • Diet: wood Its size is roughly twice that of its worker counterpart. It has larger and stronger venomous claws than any other type of termite. They can be equipped with a Blattotermes saddle to ride them. • Upon killing an individual, its body will drop Meat, Chitin and Blattotermes Venom. • Weight reduction of 15% in wood, and 50% in meat, rotten meat, prime meat, fish, prime fish, chitin, keratin and organic polymer. • Left click: bite more powerful than any other type of termite. Damages thatch, wood and stone structures. It gathers Chitin, Keratin, Meat, Prime Meat, Fish, Prime Fish, Rotten Meat, and Organic Polymer. It can be configured to just get one type of resource. If held down, it will lunge to bite its prey, the attack will be more powerful and grant bleeding. • Right click. poisonous injection. It will nail its tweezers with which it will inject venom from its labial palp. If held down, a poisonous spit can be released that will damage all sorts of structures, but it won't be as effective as the Arthroplurera's. • If there are groups of 2 to 3 soldier termites, the one with the highest level will be the leader of the group, so the rest will follow what the leader does if they are on a route established by the king termite (so as not to having to configure all the termites to follow the route). All party members will receive a 15% buff at increased damage and an additional 20% damage resistance. • Cntrl: you can grab survivors, small and medium animals with your pincers. When this happens, left-clicking will deal normal damage and right-clicking will cause torpor. • C: If you press it in front of a wall, you can climb walls and ceilings without consuming energy if you are not sprinting. If the leader of the group switches to climbing mode, the rest will also climb. • Space. Jump. If held down and aimed at a wall, it will be able to charge up a jump that will leave you glued to where he has aimed on the wall. • If they are on one of the routes created by a king termite, they can follow and protect the worker, spy and guard termites, as well as stop at a point and attack nearby dinos for a set period of time. It will be possible to establish that of the dinos that they eliminate, they only collect one type of resource, among chitin, keratin, meat, prime meat, rotten meat, fish, prime fish or organic polymer, and that they deposit what they have collected in a vault. • However, one of the points on the route must be a rest area, since 8 hours (of ARK) a day, they must rest. This is ONLY if they are on a route. If the leader goes to rest, the other party members will copy her. They can also be put to rest manually. • Meat, Prime Meat, Rotten Meat, Fish, Prime Fish, and Organic Polymer rot 50% slower in your inventory. • 50% armor to attacks. • They will be able to enter turret mode, in which they will spit out enemies similar to a plant X, but they will fire slower, and the effect will not affect your vision as much and will last less. • A quantity of Blattotermes Venom can be extracted once every 4 hours (from ARK) from their jaws, though this will grant damage and torpor to whoever does so, unless they are wearing a beekeeper, radiation, or tek suit. . This poison will serve as a narcotic. • If they are part of a group, and another of the termites in the group dies, they will receive a sadness buff for 90 seconds, which will grant a 40% speed reduction, a 30% increase in vulnerability to damage and a 25% damage reduction. - Spy or winged Blattotermes: • Temperament: flee, unless they are defending the nest, in which case they will be aggressive. • Diet: wood Its size is similar to the worker termite, but with wings that are twice as long as the termite. They can be equipped with a Blattotermes saddle to ride them. • When killing a specimen, its body will drop meat and chitin. • Weight reduction of 10% in wood, and 50% in berries, rare flowers, fiber, seeds, mushrooms and vegetables. • Left click: bite. Damage thatch and wood structures, and collect berries, mushrooms, fiber, rare flowers, seeds, and vegetables. It can be configured to just get one type of resource. • Right click: scream. It can be set in your inventory to make a scream that scares wild animals, or attracts them. • Space: can fly. If space is held down while aiming at a wall or ceiling, it will stick to it, allowing the rider to use weapons and tools. You can also use them if you are on the ground. If while flying you press space twice, it will start to fly sideways, towards the side the camera is pointed at. Sideways, it will go 20% faster, but it will spend more energy and will not be able to maneuver as well. In normal flight, you will be able to fly forwards and backwards, and turning maneuvers will be very fast. • C: the termite will go underground and can move underground (Similar to basilisk). Time underground will consume oxygen, so it will be limited. Turrets won't detect it, but you won't be able to get through doors or structures below. Parasaurs would detect it. • Cntrl: can grab small dinos and feces. Grabbing a tamed dung beetle and left-clicking will transfer all the fertilizer to the termite's inventory. • If they are on one of the routes created by a king termite, they will be able to stop at a point to collect resources in the area (only the resources that it is capable of collecting) for a certain time and deposit the collected items in a vault, as well as being able to collect fertilizer from nearby dung beetles and distribute it to the crop plots in the area, before continuing on the path. • However, one of the points on the route must be a rest area, since 8 hours (of ARK) a day, they must rest. This is ONLY if they are on a route. They can also be put to rest manually. • Berries, mushrooms, rare mushrooms, rare flowers and vegetables rot 50% slower in your inventory. • 10% armor to attacks. - Blattotermes guard: • Temperament: aggressive • Diet: wood Its size is 1.5 times larger than that of soldier termites, being the largest termite. Their only function in the wild nest is to protect the queen. They have hard plates attached to their bodies that serve as a shield and covers them entirely except their head and legs. They are very slow but resistant and strong. They can be equipped with a Blattotermes saddle to ride them. • When killing a specimen, its body will drop meat and chitin. • Weight reduction of 50% in wood, and very good statistics in weight. • Left click: bite. Destroy thatch and wooden structures. It is unable to gather any resources other than wood. • Right click: headbutt. If held down, it will charge up a lunge that ends with a headbutt, and will expend quite a bit of energy. • C: defensive mode. The termite will crouch, and with its plates it will cover its whole body and the rider. It will cost energy. In this mode you can very slowly move forward, backward, left or right. • Cntrl: You will be able to pick up structures, place them in other places, and even empty their contents in other storages. • If they are on one of the routes created by a king termite, they will be able to pick up all types of storages, take them to another point, empty their contents in other storages, and return them back where they were. They are a method of transporting resources. • However, one of the points on the route must be a rest area, since 8 hours (of ARK) a day, they must rest. This is ONLY if they are on a route. They can also be put to rest manually. • His plates have 85% armor to attacks. In the rest of the body, (head and legs) they have 15% armor to attacks. ALL TERMITES ARE VULNERABLE TO FIRE IN-GAME EVOLUTIONS IN ADULTHOOD By carrying out certain activities, they will be able to unlock skills that can be activated in the inventory. You can only have one ability for each key, so if one of the abilities is activated, it will be irreversible and the other will not be able to be activated. When they unlock the skills, they will do a different unique animation than when they level up. Worker Blattotermes: To get the choice of ability on the Cntrl key (cleaning or mud rolling). · To unlock cleaning: take your Blattotermes fishing! After a number of fish caught that will depend on the level of the Blattotermes, you will unlock the ability. When unlocked, the termites can clean themselves, granting a +30% speed buff, -20% energy consumption and x2 experience gain buff to the dino and the player for 60 seconds. 180 second cooldown. · To unlock mud rolling: kill insects with your Blattotermes. After a number of these creatures are eliminated that will depend on the level of the Blattotermes, you will unlock the ability, which consists of the termites getting dirty with mud and dirt, granting a buff of +20% damage and +20% extra armor hits, except bear and sabertooth for 60 seconds. 180 second cooldown. Soldier Blattotermes: To get the skill choice on the X key (ambush or poisonous thorns) · To unlock ambush: kill large dinos with your group of Blattotermes. After a number of dinos have been killed depending on the level of the Blattotermes, you will unlock the ability, which is that, only if they are in a group, the leader can quickly climb up the legs of large dinos. The other termites in the group will also climb after the leader. They will begin to tear at the victim with the powerful bite of their jaws, causing unstackable bleeding, but no cooldown. · To unlock poisonous spines: put a number of dinos to sleep, depending on the level of the Blattotermes, using the ability to grab small and medium dinos with the Cntrl and inject torpor with the right click to unlock this ability that will launch poisonous spines that will grant a great torpor to whoever receives them. Spy Blattotermes: To get the skill choice on the X key (Invisibility or Night Vision) • To unlock invisibility: scare a number of wild animals, depending on the level of the Blattotermes, with the right click scream. Invisibility costs stamina. It will not be detected by the parasaur, but by turrets. • To unlock night vision: attract a number of wild animals, depending on the level of the Blattotermes, with the right click scream (I remind you the right click scream can be set to scare dinos or to attract them). The night vision is similar to the Snow Owl's one and it costs stamina. Guard Blattotermes: To get the choice of ability on the X key (earthquake or wall plate) • To unlock Earthquake: Eliminate a number of creatures, which depends on the Blattotermes level, having hit them at the beginning with the right-click headbutt. Earthquake is that with its front legs, it hits the ground very powerfully, causing a movement that damages all kinds of structures, friendly or enemy, and stuns nearby dinos and survivors for 5 seconds. 20 second cooldown, and cannot be used in defensive mode • To unlock Wall Plate: Take a total number of damage, which depends on the level of the Blattotermes, while it's in defensive mode. With Wall Plate, the Blattotermes turns the plates covering her body into a wall and places it in front of it. The health of the wall depends on how much health the termite has. The turrets will detect the wall as an enemy dino, so they will shoot at it. The plates will take 40 seconds to regenerate, during which time the termite will be much more vulnerable. Cannot be used in defensive mode. BIOMIZATION During adolescence, termites are able to get used to life in different environments. • If they go on a walk through the water when they are teenagers, when they reach adulthood they will swim much faster, and they will have the ability, regardless of the type of termite it is, by pressing X in the water to walk on the seabed. In addition, your oxygen will also be increased very considerably. • If the same is done on the redwood, they will gain immunity to surprise attacks from microraptor and purlovia. • If, on the other hand, teenagers ride through the snow, as adults they will grant a buff of cold resistance and reduced food consumption to their rider, which will last up to 20 seconds after the player gets off the mount. • The same can be done with heat and water consumption, as well as getting a new ability that allows the termite to increase its body temperature in order to hatch eggs (less effective than a dimetrodon) if teenagers walk through the Lava Biome. • If they walk through the jungle, they will gain the ability to see the bags of dinos or dead enemies, such as the wolf and the fjordhawk. • Finally, if this is done in the swamp, it will gain the ability to grant protection from leeches, which will remain for up to 20 seconds after dismounting. These adaptations are stackable. PERSONALIZATION AT BIRTH Lastly, the Blattotermes will have some unique traits depending on what biome its egg hatched in. • Jungle Biome: the abdomen will be filled with scales and two small balls will grow at the end of its antennae, which will light up when a maximum level dino is nearby. • Snow Biome: on the abdomen of the Termite a thick fur will grow along with small keratinous plates protruding like thorns, which can be lighted up and serve to scare away predators. • Swamp: it will grow green scales on its back that will turn another color when a Survivor or enemy creature is nearby. • Redwood: small keratinous plates protruding like thorns will grow on the back and they will get pointy if there are microraptors, purlovias, thylacoleos or another termite colony nearby. • Lava Biome: its legs and head will take on a volcanic red color similar to burning lava and small thorns will grow on his head, which can be pulled out from time to time and will serve to repair any broken tool or weapon from its inventory. I think this dino would have a great future in ark, due to the immense amount of content it provides and the innovation that the home automation system with termites would bring. It took me a lot to think about everything and create the dossier, so thank you very much for reading this! ❤️ I am widely open to suggestions, ideas, etc.
Species: Cameroceras Thalassapyro Time: Middle Ordivician Diet: Carnivore Temperament: Aggressive Wild Many survivors including myself have noted the extreme depth of the ocean on this Ark, apparently the western side of the ocean has no end but I seriously doubt if this is true. Many prehistoric marine life dwell in the strange abyss but one of them is significantly more flashier (fishier?) than the others, Cameroceras Thalassapyro. In a lot of ways it is similar to Tusoteuthis Vampyrus in that they are both cephalopods capable of spraying ink but that's where the similarities end for me at least. For one Cameroceras is much smaller that Tusoteuthis (I'd posit around the size of a Dunkleosteus) and well it glows and not just that, it's ink glows. Cameroceras ink seems to have many different properties depending on which colour the Cameroceras decides to glow and it can fire the ink in multiple different ways, either in a single big cloud similar to Tusoteuthis or multiple small bursts it can fire from a distance. Domesticated A tamed Cameroceras can prove to be one of the most useful underwater creatures to have at your (tribe's) disposal. Its large cone-like shell can be used as a big spear to just simply skewer other creatures but that's rarely why survivors tame them. The main reason Cameroceras Thalassapyro is tamed is due to its glowing ink that changes its properties depending on its colour, from what I have seen there are three "modes" Cameroceras can go into "heal" (green), "damage" (red), and "freeze (or just stun)" (cyan). What the ink does in these modes is pretty self-explanatory but as stated before Cameroceras can fire the ink in multiple ways either in a single large cloud or multiple small bursts that can be fired from a distance but I should warn you, Cameroceras is not an infinite well of ink, if too much ink is expelled it will have no ink in its body and will have to speed up its metabolism to make more ink, in non-biologist words when Cameroceras runs out of ink it gets incredibly hungry so make sure you brought a lot of snacks during your dives with this thing. Mechanics Cameroceras is the multi-purpose aquatic creature capable of stunning, dealing damage, and even healing things and its all because of its fancy glowing ink! Cameroceras' basic attacks include a bite and weird cone slam, similar to the Woolly Rhino you can turn this cone slam into a powerful charge attack though not as powerful as the Wooly Rhino's charge attack. Cameroceras can expel ink the same way in all of its modes either in single devastating cloud like the Tusoteuthis or it can fire pellets of the ink from a distance similar to a tek saddle. The three modes are heal (green), damage (red), and freeze (or stun) (cyan). Heal mode heals things that come in contact with the ink, Damage mode, get this, damages things that come in contact with the ink crazy right?, and lastly freeze mode stuns things that come in contact with the ink. Stun mode in particular deserves a somewhat deeper look, the ink bullets don't immediately stun enemies but only after many, many shots. The Single Ink Cloud does instantly stun enemies however. Cameroceras has a unique ink stat, this stat determines how much ink it can expel, when theres no more ink Cameroceras gets a status effect that increases ink replenishing however also making it's hunger drain a bit more. Taming Oops I forgot to add how you tame this thing, uuhhh you let it eat some honey i guess.
Hi and welcome to the Estemmenosuchus Ultimadentaris vote page! Here we will persuade you into voting for Estemmenosuchus Ultimadentaris, first off with how Estemmenosuchus would work! Estemmenosuchus would be a mid-late game tame, with it’s saddle being achieved at level 40 or 45, Estemmenosuchus would get a hydration buff when in contact with water, and when deep underwater it will enter an “Manic Frenzy” state, where it will have increased speed, bite force and bite speed, however, Estemmenosuchus will have counters to it such as being unridable if it gains big levels of torpor and/or not being fed. Now, onto the Dossier! Common name: Estemmeno Species name: Estemmenosuchus Ultimadentaris Time: Mid Permian Diet: Carnivore Temperament: Aggressive Wild Few words other than terrifying can describe Estemmenosuchus Ultimadentaris, I've had various nightmares about being torn to shreds by these monsters. I can't stress enough just how dangerous an encounter with Estemmenosuchus Ultimadentaris is, they aren't like any other Estemmenosuchus specimen, they are far different, they're aggressive, strictly carnivorous, and lay eggs, almost as if most of their genetics have been modified heavily. Estemmenosuchus Ultimadentaris seems to hold a grudge against other therapsids, as in will specifically target them if they're in the same vacinity as the creature, now, I don't know if this is a silly rumor, but I've heard that Estemmenosuchus seem to go insane underwater and begin to bite like crazy! Might just be a myth, but better safe than sorry. Domesticated I don't know of anyone who has been brave enough (and/or dumb enough) to try and attempt taming an Estemmenosuchus Ultimadentaris specimen, in fact, I don't think anyone has tamed one as of yet, however, I know of many survivors who show an interest in taming Estemmenosuchus, which checks out, their amazing hunting capabilities as well as their increased speed when under pressure can make a formidable tame. Perhaps the way to tame them is to lure them towards a creature it can kill or hates like Moschops or Dimetrodon, and aiding the Estemmenosuchus to kill it, maybe gaining it's trust? I view killing a creature as versatile as moschops may look like a waste for some survivors, but for a creature like Estemmenosuchus? Seems like a fair trade. Images and more coming soon, stay tuned! Passive Ability - "Fear the unknown" If Estemmenosuchus encounters you at night, rather than attacking you it will stare at you, if you are (dumb enough) to near it after this stare, it will trigger a chase sequence, where Estemmenosuchus will follow you rapidly and will only stop if you're outside it's aggro range, or Estemmeno is killed. Attack 1 - Left Mouse hold. If you click simply with left mouse, then Estemmenosuchus will just bite the foe, however, if you hold it, you'll see a meter charge up, as Estemmenosuchus holds up it's mouth and then clamps down it's jaws on the prey, holding them in place while attatched to it. Here we can see an example of it, an Estemmenosuchus infinetly clamping the force of 1000 suns down on a pegomastax, who f'd around and found out
My Idea Bistahieversor would be a new Dino to shine some light in the mid game of your adventure. The bistahievesor was a Dino who had evolved with very good senses and this would go into its abilities. Touch After attacking a Dino it will be pinned while riding bistahievesor for the next hour(is toggle able). This ping will be similar to a taming tracker where it says the distance but instead of showing tame percent it would show the health of the Dinosaur. Taste After eating a meat it can indemnify what dinosaur meat it just ate and locate a general area where the Dino COULD be found (will not go in water). This will be togglable Scent The bistahievesor can smell the ground and determine what Dino’s have crossed the area(no location just species and level) Sight In the night time the bistahievesor can have either normal vision,thermal vision, or night vision. These could all be used to hunt in the night Hearing(Help Needed) Bistahievesor can hear Dino’s nearby and if a roar of any kind is happening it will pin the Dino and where they are while roaring (this one is up for suggestions) Saddle The saddle would be pretty basic. You would obtain it at level 46. There would be two little caches on both sides of the saddle that can hold 50 pounds each just for extra storage. Stats This would not be the next Giga or Carchar. This would be like a nimbler Allo with more stamina and faster speed in trade for lower health. Wild This Dino would be naturally neutral even though it is a carnivore. Although any type of roar will make it aggressive. It would be found in redwoods,deserts, hills, and the snowy areas. Taming This creature woild have a very unique and fun taming method. First you would feed it prime meat then bistahievesor would run and play hide and seek with you when you find it it will gain taming percent. The level would change how many times you have to play hide and seek with it. If you vote for this thanks I thought this would be a cool idea. Wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bistahieversor
