Wild (from the notes of Helena Walker): So far I have seen many unseen creatures, starting with creatures that I knew earlier as a pile of bones, ending with fantastic dragons. However, this creature can't be compared to anything I've seen before. In the ark database, this creature is called a peregocetus and it's not even clear what it looks like. Peregocetus looks like a mixture of otter and seal. This creature lives in flocks on reef coasts. You can hear them right away, because the mixture of their cries reminded me of the vocalization of Brazilian otters and foxes. The diet of the peregocetus consists of fish, mainly megalodons fall under their distribution, although they do not disdain coelacanths, salmon and piranhas. There have also been reported cases of attacks on pelagornis, kairuku and even ichthyornis, if they fly low enough over the water. Apparently, these mammals do not tolerate competition in their category and therefore immediately destroy all seabirds. Despite all this, they treat the survivors well enough, as long as they don't provoke them. Home : Some tribes tamed flocks of such creatures and were very surprised by the result. Firstly, the peregocetus has well-developed infrared vision under water and it can make a U-turn under water, similar to a tropeognath, which gives a head start in water battles. Secondly, like ichthyornis, he collects first-class meat where others do not collect. Thirdly, it is ideal for the extraction of resources, or to be more precise: straw, organic polymer, tree sap, sand, charcoal and sulfur. Also, when he hits a stone with his tail, he collects cement paste from it, but does not collect the rest of the resources from various ores. And fourthly, his screams are so loud and strong that they can scare even yutirannus. In terms of combat, this creature can also stand up for itself. If you attack a pack of tamed peregocetus on a tyrannosaurus, then you will win, because their bites cause bleeding, which destroys the enemy's health reserves in a matter of seconds. Taming : Any peregocetus is tamed passively. However, to tame you will need to create your favorite shark soup, which is easily created in a pot or in an industrial oven. (Recipe : 1 alpha megalodon fin, 3 lemons, 5 rare mushrooms, 10 fried meats). We look for the right individual, put the soup in the zero slot, tame and enjoy. Breeding : Peregocetus is a viviparous mammal that does not have an oxygen scale, so you can mate them everywhere, the main thing is to monitor the value of food!!! Functions by buttons. Left click - Bite (causes bleeding). Right click - Tail strike (stun and collect resources). Space - Jump (can jump out of the water). The "C" button is Infrared vision. The "O" button is a sun reversal (works only in water). Left ctrl - Scream. Notes to possible questions. 1 - "Shark soup has some value besides food for domestication"? Yes, it can be fed to creatures and this soup increases the regeneration of health by 30% (approximately like basilosaurus). 2 - "How exactly is the bleeding distributed?" - The same as in allosaurs, i.e. the wound is suspended by the individual with the highest level. 3 - "How much will he stun with a tail attack?" - The attack will be balanced. Let's just say it's bigger than a thorny dragon and smaller than a basilisk. 4 - "Will the roar affect Giganotosaurus and Titanosaurus?" - no. His cry scares away everyone except giganotosaurs, titanosaurs, all alpha creatures, titans and reapers. Please support this creature (if you liked it) and ask questions if you still have any.
An extinct genus of sperm whale. Because there are no water exclusive creature in community maps, this is a best idea I can think of myself, especially for this map since it's more of a "cool" environment themed map. (Wikipedia article: As a starting point for basic info, includes scientific papers for cited references for article) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Livyatan (Ark fan-work references) (Ark Workshop mod video reference) I can imagine it being something similar to what this modder did with their own Livyatan, in which its call can stun enemies. Just an idea.
Zygophyseter varolai is an extinct sperm whale that lived during the Tortonian age of the Late Miocene 11.2 to 7.6 million years ago. It is known from a single specimen from the Pietra Leccese Formation in Italy. It was a member of a stem group of fossil macroraptorial sperm whales (often shortened to "raptorial") also including Brygmophyseter, Acrophyseter, and Livyatan. It probably grew to be around 6.5 to 7 meters (21 to 23 ft) in length and shared some characteristics with other raptorials, such as large teeth with tooth enamel that were functional in both the upper and lower jaws which the modern sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus) lacks. It also had a beak, the ability to echolocate prey, and could have probably swum faster than the modern-day sperm whale which goes 4 kilometers per hour (2.5 mph). These were probably used in the capture of large prey, such as large fish, seals, and whales. In fact, its common name, the killer sperm whale, refers to its feeding habits that would have had a resemblance to the modern-day killer whale My idea is that we need a new water creatur. We dont have any animals in the sea they can buff anyone like the Yuti. So we need him with this sounds for buffs Feel open to write your ideas for some sound buffs for him under this post
Ambulocetus (real life taxa Ambulocetus. natans) was a primitive whale from the early Eocene period, a medium-sized semi-aquatic carnivorous mammal. (I'm submitting it again before someone tries to hoard the taxa like last time, i.. Put a lot of work into this.) I believe this animal could be a good semi-aquatic light tank, with high damage and respectable health for its size. I imagine the species featured in the game would be around the same length as the Kaprosuchus, just large enough to be rideable, but more manoeuvrable than the larger aquatic tames. The player could be laying down on the saddle rather than sitting, not unlike some other aquatic mounts. As for it’s vibes, i’m thinking of maybe something somewhat cryptid-like, as underwater mammalian monsters seem to be a common pattern in urban legends, and pictures of whale carcasses are sometimes mistaken for the remains of fantastical creatures (one such picture being well known online as the inspiration for SCP-682). Temperament could be Agressive unless the player is riding something larger than a Baryonyx, but still Territorial if approached with those larger mounts. Alternatively, it could have a behavior similar to the “Troodon”, where it gets more actively Aggressive at night, but remains Territorial if approached too closely during the day. I gave my design a prominent whisker “mustache”, as I thought it would make it stand out from other Ambulocetus depictions while still looking plausible, but also because a useful gimmick could probably be attached to the idea of a mammal with very sensitive whiskers. Perhaps Ambulocetus could be capable of sensing nearby creatures when pressing a button, in a similar way to the Federation helmet scanner, but only when Hydrated. In addition, it could maybe act in a way similar to glowpets, automatically indicating the presence of certain kinds of creatures (Max level ? Rare ? Highly dangerous ?..) near the player mounting it [this would be an idle ability that does not require it to be Hydrated.]. If a player is not mounting it, no status indicator would show, but the presence of something could still be hinted at by a noise and/or animation (whiskers wiggle ?).
