  1. Be the dino mode

    Remember that be the dino trailer that Ark released like 3 years ago? Anybody remember that? Good. If not, go watch it on their Youtube channel. Is that still being worked on? Or does anybody think this might be the next DLC? I mean, it's possible, and i have wanted this since launch.
  2. I had a dream last night; In my dream I had a raptor as a pet, it went everywhere with me, it was my bodyguard, my friend, practically my brother. I woke up today feeling better than ever, because there was other stuff that happened in that dream, everything that happened in that dream was so good and such a nice idea of what life COULD be like, that I woke up feeling better than ever and wanting that dream to come true.
  3. Dinosaur games

    I have been playing The only Dinosaur game on my PC in my office timings. It is Google Dino game. It is the only game that cannot be blocked by my Team Leader with his Bloody Filter. But It is getting too much for me now. The same game from past 1 year. Can you guys recommend me some more games like Dino game from google?
  4. I play on an unofficial cluster on The Center map and after the server restarted to apply the last update I logged in, my quetzal had no saddle platform saddle on it and it is impossible to access the quetzals inventory as pressing e/f does nothing and in the radial menu theres simply no option that says access inventory. I asked the server admin to see if they could do anything on their end about this but nothing they did could bring it back from this mishap so they killed it and unfortunately no replacement dinos for whatever reason so i was down a quetzal. Got over it, tamed another one, leveled it up, the server restarted again last night as some players were complaining of lag, I logged in a few minutes later and my new quetzal is missing its saddle and has no inventory option again. I googled some and found a similar issue for flyers relating to some older patch, here is the thread:Insert other media Anyone else having this issue or know what might be causing it? many thanks!
  5. Dinosaurs disappearing

    Anybody else's dinosaurs just disappearing? Even dinosaurs at my camp are disaeappring....
  6. Let's assume Wildcard can pinpoint who is duping and on what server they are doing it. One solution should be: Those Dinos caught in duping or items will be given a red flag on the item/dino. This will render them untransferable across servers. They cannot be traded or unclaimed. They are unable to be transferred to boss battles through drops or obelisk. AND/OR Once a red flag is marked upon an item or dino, they are given a decay timer that cannot be refreshed in anyway. They will eventually be removed from the game. and be given a locked feature as if you were never able to use the item. Sort of like tek engrams. Dinos with mark cannot be saddled and will not respond to whistles. Account or player character or characters Each character will be marked with a red flag next to their name as a known hacker/duper on their floating name and on chat window. (might cause the community to hate you.) Harsh Repercussions (going too far?) >:) Repeated hacking/duping will result in a penalty upon you're account for 90 days. You're tribe dino count will be cut in half, and every dino you have will cost 10 each toward the total amount of dinos. This will also result in a possible ban of the account and decline of you're credit card if you decide to purchase another copy of the game under the same name. FBI will be called out to track down ip addresses and aliases of different accounts and inform valve. Possibly closure of steam, ps4, xbox accounts. Addtional game limiting suggestions from anyone from this thread?
  7. dinosaur changes

    hello wildcard, i have some suggestions i feel would be wanted in the game, let's get right into it i guess. my first suggestion, is to enable moving while left click harvesting on the mammoth, the right click stomp makes sense to be in one spot, but you should be able to move while shaking your tusks around with left click. secondly, could we get the dunkleosteus to half the weight of obsidian, maybe even the ankylo? it would make sense as metal has been halved, and they are both efficiant at harvesting obsidian. that's all i have to say, thanks for reading, and if you agree, give us a like or rating, however it works lol.
  8. I am a perfectionist, so I want a perfect dinosaur, can someone tell me the way?
  9. So I have been wondering, should they add Ceratosaurus to ARK? I say yes and here's all the info: • The dossier (NOT MINE) : • The spawn location (The Island): • Icon (WIP) : • Taming (WIP) : ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So what do you think? Comment your opinion!
  10. Been playing for a long time now both on PC and PS4. Mainly PS4 atm as my PC is going though upgrades. Recently started playing Scorched Earth and began transfering items over after establishing a base near Red Obelisk. Dis-bite the other bug I'm having on PS4 which is a overwhelming number of Raptor spawns, and I mean insanely (20-30 in each clusters all over the Red Obelisk, Killing them over and over doesn't work) I wanted to send a few of my dino's back to the Island after obtaining a fair few new dino's (Along with items) Got a nice big base there, where they can live out there retirement. As I transferred by to the Island I noticed Half of the items I transfered were missing/gone, but my dino's were intact and ready to upload, So I went to transfer them. Out of the 4 Dino's I transferred only 1 appeared. (a Jerboa) The others were... Gone! Nowhere to be found! Figured this a bug, or I did something wrong, went to multiple obelisks and they said all was transferred. (Bit peeved, but hey it's ark) Anyways transferred myself back with 2 Dino's this time being careful. Also a Saddle. When I arrived back on Scorched Earth, both saddle and the 2 Dino's I transferred appeared ready to upload. So I uploaded them... GONE AGAIN! No dino's at all next to me... Just like before. Only that bloody saddle survived the transfer. Not sure if this is just Single player only problem, but now it's left me to believe that you can't transfer Dino's back and forth, or items as it seems to currently delete them. As i thought a "Sauron's growing Horde of Raptor's" were bad enough. Anyone able to shed some light on this, Figure they're all gone for good which is a shame, but love to know what's going on.
  11. So i have to say that of loved the idea when they added mounted ridding. One of my favorit things to do when hunting/Exp grinding is running by a small dino and saddle sniping it. It's kinda an awesome feeling when you get those shots. However... the mechanics in regards to how you move your tame is kinda.... annoying. This isnt to say its bad, as alot of games involving vehicles use similar controls (or at least have an option for it) But I feel there should be options to change how the dinos move to fit more play styles and comfort zones. Mount movements Option 1 / defaults: Controls Forward/Backwards = Dino walks Forward/Backwards or sprints foward in direction relative to the dino. Forward being the direction the dino is facing. Walking backwards is slower, and is relative to the mount. Left/Right = turn dino left or right (respectfully) in the direction relative to the direction of the dino. (Aka their left and right). Mount movement's Option 2: Forward/Backwards/Left/Right = Dino walks or sprints in direction pressed relative to the Rider. The dino will not walk backwards, and instead they will turn to face the direction pressed to move in the direction pressed. Another thing that would be nice (for those who prefer 3rd person views) is a 3rd person view option which will place the camera over the shoulder of the player allowing them to use both melee and firearms from 3rd person. What dose everyone else think? Have an idea or a better way to explain it even let me know!
  12. Manta death

    I wish i had a pic but when mantas follow other dinosaurs too close to the surface they will die when accidentally going above the water.

  14. Half empty world

    I'm playing on the Island and there seems to be a lack of dinos in a lot areas. The redwood forest has almost no critters. It's been Ages since I've seen a spino. The only area with any animals seems to be the winterland, even so it still seems more empty then before. The only animals that seems plenty are the flying critters. Argentavis in the mountains and Pteranodons near the rivers and beaches. It looks like they alone could outnumber every other species 3 to 1. I even flew to Dead Island to check the situation there, as I know it's a spawn point for multiple sorts of carnivores. Yet lo and behold I saw a lot of giant hawks but nothing other than a lone T-rex in the middle. And I think that is what upsets me the most, that despite the lack other animals, the flying creatures seems to be everywhere. I'll admit that I've previously complained about the amount of predators, but this also applies to herbivores, as they're almost completely gone. Before I saw a pack of Allosauruses in the redwoods, an area the wiki states they roam, but as they disappeared, I started seeing a lot more t-rex in the redwoods and now I don't see a single rex in the redwoods. Even the Giganotosaurus that spawned is gone without a trace. Despite this I've seen Yutyrannus in the winterland in quite the numbers. What could have caused this?
  15. Why don't we hear dinosaurs making noise in the woods and what-not when they are far away? Tell me it wouldn't be amazing if you were walking through the dark woods and you heard a Rex just roar from a distance. It would definitely add suspense to the game. Plus, it doesn't make sense when raptors are attacking a stego or something and it is just completely silent. Thanks!
  16. Fix the Thylacoleo!!

    The Thylacoleo (or as I like to call them, the Thylo), is my favorite dinosaur in Ark. It is an extremely versatile animal that able to fulfill a multitude of different roles, and has one of the most unique and amazing special abilities in the game. However, there are several problems surrounding the Thylacoleo: 1. The Climbing The ability to climb vertical surfaces is one of the main abilities (and the precursor to the second) that the Thylo possesses. However, while this works almost perfectly on the massive Redwood trees, it is buggy and often leads to players having to spam the space bar to "climb" on any other surface. (i.e base walls, cliffs, etc). Now I understand that this ability was made so the Thylo could climb Redwoods, but the ability is very buggy or even impossible to use on uneven cliffs (which is 95% of the cliffs in Ark). Even on base walls (which are completely flat generally), the Thylo has trouble getting a grip and staying attached. This is more a game issue, but for the animal's full potential to be realized, this needs to be fixed. 2. Saddles This does not just go for the Thylo, but most of the new dinosaurs do not have anything but the regular Primitive saddles (as far as I know at least). I have asked other tribes where the members have thousands of hours in-game, and none of them have ever seen even a Ramshackle Thylacoleo or other "new" dinosaur saddle. Another example of this is the Baryonyx, Please add the blueprints and or saddles to the item pool for the game! Better saddles are a must for ALL ride-able creatures in Ark! 3. Structure Damage So Wildcard is telling me that a giant marsupial (yes, Thylos are not cats, but gigantic, monstrous Koalas {well, not really}), is not able to damage wood? This is extremely aggravating for me, as Carnotaurus, Triceratops, and even Beelzebufo can damage wood, but a marsupial with giant claws and teeth can't? I know the main excuse for the inability to damage wood is "balance", but almost no one tames Thylos and almost everything in Ark can damage wood. I am not asking for it to be able to chew through wood walls like a chainsaw, but the ability to damage it would be nice. Thank you and have a wonderful day!
  17. Insect breeding

    If the aquatics could get their own breeding update, why can't the insects? Pulmonoscorpius can already lay eggs, but he can't have babies. So why not add in breeding for insects? maybe have different things for each one, like the spider carries the eggs on his back, dung beetles have larvae, etc,
  18. Every dino I leveled yesterday has about 200-250+ extra levels. The stats are the same, but now they can't be leveled anymore. This is on my single player game with taming at 3x and resources at 2.5x Example.. this was a 150 Rex that hit 224 on kibble 99.3 TE. It's now listed as level 487. Is there any way to fix these dinos? console command to reprocess the dinos or something? It's about half of my dinos that have this bug. My last backup save is from 5 days ago and I'll lose a lot of progress. Edit: I have talked to others with this issue on single player, and servers. It's not just me.
  19. It would simply change a dinosaurs sex from male to female, ECT.
  20. Hello all, what do you think about a new dino, or an update of an old dino, that make directly sparkpowder by smashing stone on the map? I think it's a great idea that can gain a lots of time during a long session of sparkpowder farming, for make gunpowder or meat jerky for example. The sparkpowder is needed at every lvl of the game, and no dino helps to farm tons of it faster. Of course ankylo help but you still have to grind the flint and the stone, that need a quetzal or a lots movements between your house and the stone. When you want prepare a lots of ammo, the most boring things is to farm enough sparkpowder, especially for the most expensive ammo like the shotgun ammo. For example, update the pachy for give it the possibility to smash stone and create sparkpowder, high lvl pachy will carry more spark, create more spark on a stone etc...
  21. Dinosaur suggestion

    In the most recent news article on Steam, the ARK devs suggested something about finalising their final batch of Dino Dossiers. Is it too late to make a suggestion to this? Only it seems fitting to include at least one (or some) of the earliest known dinosaurs - those that the whole dinosaur age (and thus, genre) began with and evolved from. I'm talking about the dinosaurs;,,,,,, and maybe the more popular and well-known Thanks everyone who read this. Just putting my thoughts out there! EDIT: My links appeared to break, so I've tried to fix them. Hopefully just hyperlinked text should appear instead of odd-looking links thrown into the body text. EDIT: Welp, obviously not. Sorry.
  22. Troodon

    From the album Dossiers

    Common Name: Troodon Species: Troodon Magnanimus Time: Late Cretaceous Diet: Carnivore Temperament: Nocturnally Aggressive Wild: Quite possibly the most intelligent non-human creature on the island, Troodon Magnanimus is an incredibly fast learner. It understands meaningful experiences much more quickly than other creatures (including humans), and its social nature means it also teaches its pack mates, making them more clever too. If Troodon’s cleverness didn’t make it formidable, than its tactics and biology do. It specifically pack-hunts at night when we are most vulnerable, and sees humans as its primary prey. This audacity is made especially dangerous due to its serrated fangs’ poison, which drains stamina from any creature, but outright paralyses humans. Thankfully, Troodon is fairly small. Were it larger, it might well have become the dominant creature of its ecosystem. Domesticated: I thought Troodon simply could not be tamed, until I finally saw a lone survivor with one. She told me that she let “Troody” hunt a few of her tribe’s smaller creatures for sport, and it eventually started following her everywhere. It seems that while Troodon is too intelligent to fall for the rote conditioning of ‘tranq-and-feed’, it can instead gradually gain loyalty from a social approach that provides it the opportunity to hunt. Ever since, I have wondered at the benefits that a pack of ultra-smart, bred-for-battle Troodon may bring to a tribe brave enough to earn the favor of these clever carnivores.
  23. Triceratops

    From the album Dossiers

    Common Name: Triceratops Species: Triceratops styrax Time: Late Cretaceous Diet: Herbivore Temperament: Short-Tempered Wild: Apparently a cross-breed of a Triceratops and Styracosaurus, Triceratops styrax has both the characteristic three-horned face of Triceratops and the prominent horned-ridge of Styracosarus. Normally a very docile grazing animal, Triceratops becomes extremely aggressive once angered. Triceratops will chase down would-be predators (and egg-stealers) with incredible prejudice. I've seen Triceratops have an especially hostile reaction to the Tyrannosaurus on the island, with herds attacking in groups. Domesticated: A common mount for those that ride dinosaurs, Triceratops doubles as both pack animal and combat war horse. Triceraptops' bony ridge works excellently as cover from frontal attacks, and the dinosaur's charge is incredibly dangerous.
  24. Therizinosaur

    From the album Dossiers

    Common Name: Therizinosaur Species: Therizinosaur Multiensis Time: Late Cretaceous Diet: Herbivore Temperament: Aggressive Wild: I’m not entirely sure how Therizinosaur Multiensis stays populated on the island. It is surprising slow for it’s size, and is a solitary creative (so no pack to back it up). I suppose the fact that it’s sheer power rivals Tyrannosaurus us the only thing that allows this very aggressive medium-sized herbivore to thrive on the island. The claws of Therizinosaur are some of the most versatile biological tools I’ve encountered, as adept at removing trees and foliage from Therizinosaur path as they are at piercing the thick shells and hide of the island’s most defensive creatures if backed into a fight. Domesticated: A tamed Therizinosaur is one of the most versatile mounts a survivor can have. It can be trained to use it’s claws brutally or delicately, allowing the rider to primarily harvest the specific kinds of resources that he or she needs, with abnormally extreme of resource that he or she needs, with abnormally extreme efficiency. And in combat, these same claws can piece straight through. The toughest armor. This flexibility more than makes up for it’s inability to carry the large loads of the islands many herbivorous pack beasts.
