MAYBE THIS IS A IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE DEVS !!! Yesterday i spawned 3 Paracers and 2 Brontos. Today they're all gone without message. There's NO MESSAGE in any log, not in the gamelog, not in the tribe log! It's not mentioned at all... Pls devs, fix this!! UPDATE (26.11.2015): Just looked into the logs again and saw something strange: UPDATE (28.10.2015): Just finished my test-case setup: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=543585235 Row 1. Normally tamed, without saddle Row 2. Normally tamed, with saddle Row 3. Force tamed, without saddle Row 4. Force tamed, with saddle I will report what will happen to them over time. UPDATE: At 84,4 / 85,3 there's a rock formation, so the problem in the below UPDATE is caused by the "stone glitch" UPDATE: It looks like that at GPS 84,4 / 85,3 every dino disappears when out of render range, this could be a good point to search for the bug! ( Source: http://steamcommunity.com/app/346110/discussions/9/483367798500600460/#c490124466454867881 ) UPDATE: Could the bug occur more often (or faster) to dinos with saddles on them? It feels like it... but i will test it today and post the results next day under the PROOFS section (with proof-screenshots). UPDATE: Here's another sum-up of Wolf Angelus, i've tried these tests too and confirm all his points! Some deeper investigation was done by "Wolf Angelus". Big thx man! Here's the result: [h1]ORIGINAL POST[/h1] Hello community! We have a big problem with our ARK Server and we don’t know what to do, more and more players switch to other servers and the last few are angry… Our Server ist hosted by NITRADO, it’s a Pro Server with 32 Slots and 6GB of RAM. The Problem: Our tamed Dinos are disappearing or dying randomly. We don’t know what could cause this but we’ve tried a lot of things now: All Dinos are set to „Neutral“ (We also tried aggressive, but hell no, this isn’t an option) All Dinos have a Feeding Trough in range AND Food in their inventory There are several Auto Turrets in our base which could reach every Dino we tamed (they wont harm our Dinos because it’s a PvE-Server, we tried that) Most of the Dinos are „parked“ in Barns/Houses/Stables which are completely closed (including foundations) and locked by Dinosaur Gates We built our base on the weathertop and „destroyed“ nearly every spawn there with buildings, so there are no carnivores or other aggressive dinos spawning Our base is completely enclosed by a 3-4tile high stone wall What happens: We log out and everything is fine, all Dinos are in good health and have something to eat and so on. The next day we log in (about 24h later) some of the dinos are injured really bad (blood all over them), some of them are completely dead (item cache backpack on the ground). ALL Dinos are in the same position as we logged off and most of the time the dinos right next to the injured/dead ones are completely untouched/unharmed. The strange thing: This also happens inside our stable with 5 Trikes, the stable is completely closed, even the windows. Yesterday it happend that the Trike in the middle was dead with a backpack on the ground and the other were standing there without a scratch. Another strange thing: I NEVER get a death message on login… Also, sometimes there isn’t even a item cache backpack on the ground, but if it is there, the decompose-timer is „fresh“ from the time we log in and set to 20mins. My Research-results: We searched for a lot of keyword combinations on google and you can find some interesting threads of users with the same problem. Some of these users servers are also hosted by NITRADO so i ask myself if maybe the server hoster can cause this problem? Someone mentioned a server hardware change helped, others mentioned the problem disappeared after they switched to another hoster, but there is no real answer „do it that way and it works“, just assumptions.

What do YOU think? Maybe something is wrong with our engine settings, or maybe it’s NITRADOs fault? Or are we missing something else? Would be great if we can fix this problem, so the server can gain players again and there’s a reason again why we pay nearly 40€ each month for a server where only my brother and i are playing! :-) Greetings, infernalshade
  3. WE NEED ANSWERS

    Ok i was happy to wait out a reply on my ticket regarding character loss during server transfers but after seeing the amount of people both here and on twitter i feel that someone from ARK really needs to speak on it. In the last 10-20 mins i've came across 10+ people who have had all their progress lost in transfer (lvl 100 chars, tekgrams etc). Why haven't we had answer on this? And how are they gonna push their game to full release when this essentially game BREAKING bug is still unanswered? Maybe you will say "post a ticket". Say that to the guy who has been waiting nearly 5 weeks for a reply on his "ticket" on why the game just randomly decided to wipe all his progress. Either they are ignoring these specific tickets OR they don't have enough people employed to manage support problems. If you, like me, have this problem and are waiting for a reply on your ticket all i can say is good luck because you're either gonna have to start from level 1 and lose all the time you spent grinding your char or wait another 25 years for the support system to answer your ticket.
  4. Hey all, I checked around and saw a few posts similar to what I'm talking about but not specific enough to consider the same issue. I logged in today on NA-CrossArkCluster1-The Center, which is an official Server and found one of my buildings completely gone and another partially gone. No dinos were missing or dead No splash damage was noted on ANY building or remnants of the partially missing building No tribe log data indicated that anyone from the tribe had demolished ANY structure since the last time I logged in The completely missing building was a stone 9x7x3, a 3-story eggery that housed over 30 dinos, all of which were standing in such a position that it looks like the entire building was simply deleted out from under them. The other building was solid metal and was missing an entire 4x7 roof section and approximately 20 wall pieces. No damage was present on ANY foundation or wall tile that was present, all auto-turrets were still fully functional, powered, stocked on ammo, no ammo was missing...(No indication of being activated on a target) Nothing else in the base was touched. W.T.F.? Over.
  5. Disappearing dinos

    Anyone have a large amount of disappearing dinos lately? Lost two wveryns and pteradons along with a few rexs and brontos. Literally vanished from 139 prim pve. Still no report of them dying, all were set on passive and no wondering. Looked everywhere. Thanks for any info.
  6. When you leave a dino that doesn't need oxygen under water by the deep sea floor near the big rocks in Island map and you travel far away it disappears. There are some rocks that have space in between them and the sea floor. I put my turtle there planning on coming back later and when I did return he was gone. No death message in tribe log. He just disappeared. Went to single player and created turltes, beavers, diplocalus (all zero oxy creatures) and put them under the subsurface rock overhangs and cracks/crevices in deep water near sea floor. Did this ten times and 10 out of 10 times after I go far away from them for 15+ minutes and then return they all disppeared with not one death message in tribe log. I should note that the 10 out of 10 times they disappeared they were in varying locations. So its not a bug to a certain location. Thanks.
  7. Today on April fools day 4 of my rexes disappeared 5 mins after I logged on saw them all and then they were gone!! All over 250 this happen to anyone else ??
  8. Sinking babies 😭😭😭

    My tribe are having issues with breeding. Lately the dinos are either disappearing (when no-one is not around) or sinking under the map when needing a walk. A tribe mate has a game clip of it. So far we've lost 6 in 2 weeks. As frustrating as that is alone, what doesn't help is they never seem to die so they stay on our taming count. That's now becoming an issue. Oh and it's on xbox.
  9. So I've had two issues with eggs/breeding this weekend so far. Not quite sure if it's been mentioned recently from what I saw. Day 1: An ally of mine has a male rex they are pimping out. My lady wouldn't mind a little one so I walk her down from the volcano to the south. We do the whole she-bang of whistling and waiting. Expecting the whole roar of excitement just as a giant glowing red egg drops on me...but it never happens. Both parents stay quiet. No egg. But instantly, my female is given a 22 hour cooldown timer. Has there been implementation of the possibility of not getting eggs with every breeding and I missed the memo? Day 2: Okay. I didn't get an egg from my girl, but that's okay. Ally had a spare one I could have since I was mass hatching this weekend. Rexes hatched fine and I had some microraptors in the wings, freshly put down to hatch once I had the rexes settled into a good weight. In the time it took me to move from the hatching room to the growing room and back, they vanished. Two neon blue and purple eggs just gone. Because it was two of them, I thought maybe, just maybe, I left the door open and some jackwagon came in. Nope. All doors solidly shut. I solo so no tribe members came along. In both cases I did use K to check under world to ensure they didn't fall through like babies do sometimes. Also have the hatching attached to my STA account so I would have know if they hatched by some weird glitch. No bodies. Nothing. Never went out of render, literally a wall between the two rooms. I did fly out of render after the fact to see if they would come back. While I'm thankful it wasn't my mutated rexes that were sacrificed to the hungry gods of Ark, it could be next time. Not the first time I've had major breeding issues this month either. Anyone else experiencing this or am I just extremely unlucky?
  10. Disappearing OVIS baby at Birth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vtnSG6Sv4Q Finally found a male Ovis that did not get killed by a Raptor or Terror Bird. Decided to straight in and mate them both. I have the OVIS in a OVIS pen so they can give birth on the floor, but as from the video they disappear through it into the world. What on earth do we do to combat this until I hope it is fixed? Cheers
  11. Juvenile Dinos Disappeared!

    Hello All, My tribe mate and I were raising two pteranodons and a dire wolf. After the pteranodons (m + f) and the wolf (m) hit the juvenile stage, we logged off. I logged back on only an hour and a half later to imprint and our juvies were completely gone. Our base is located on the top of a hill, so we walked down both the front and the back sides to see if they had phased through, but they had not. We even checked directly under the base, because it sits a bit high off the ground. The trough was full of food when we logged on, and we also left them meat in their inventories. We got no death messages in the tribe manager, so I don't believe they have expired. If anyone can help, we would greatly appreciate it. I am Charli from Tribe of Buck and we are on scorched earth: server 945 inbetween the blue and red obelisk. The wolf is a level 200 +/-5 and the pteranodons are both nearly level 200. We will pay handsomely for the safe return of our pup and birds.
  12. Disappearing baby wyverns

    So is there any plans on fixing the issues with baby dragons disappearing? I don't want to risk my 185 and 155 eggs before this glitch is fixed. i lost a 130 wyvern over the night Kind of game breaking dont you think?
  13. Breeding and egg issues

    Playing single player on the XBOX with increased rates (baby growth/egg hatching is 10, food multiplier is .3). After this last patch (the one to fix the Pego), I'm having tons of breeding issues. Parents will mate and produce a baby (or egg) with no problems. If a mammal, a baby is born but there is no option to claim it. It's like a wild dino, but the tag is red. No matter what, there's no way to claim it and feed it. I have to cheat givetome to do anything. I've tried jumping around, looking above the baby and moving close to or farther away. Nothing. If it's an egg, the egg incubates then hatches, but no baby is born. The egg health is still 100%(it's around ACs), the hatching animation happens, but no baby. I've looked under the map all the way to the water. I've tried hatching on wood, stone, and the bare ground. I've tried different dinos (Allo, Galliminus, Jerboa, Saber). Before the update I bred an Argie and a Compy just fine. Has anyone else had this trouble before, or now?
  14. Archas disappearing

    I am playing on PS4. I'm playing on single player, non-dedicated server. My husband and I both are having a problem with the Archa dinos. We each are playing single player on our own PS4. The problem is the archa's are disappearing. I created a room surrounding a tree. Completely inclosed. I leave for a while and come back and the archa's are gone. I originally just put a fence around the trees and they disappeared so then I made a completely inclosed room and they are still disappearing. My husband is having the same issue. I believe there is some sort of glitch. Also, my husband had a rock elemental that he had for a while, but it disappeared, too. Another thing to note is that I had 2 archas in a different location, but they were not with the correct trees and they never disappeared. They only started disappearing after I moved them to a place with the correct trees to make sap.
  15. Tamed dinos are disappearing on the center. Its happened to me twice in the Redwood Biome. They literally just disappear without a trace. Its happened to me twice in the ravine around 91, 36. Anyone else having this problem?
  16. As the title says. Dinos that I have came across lately such as a raptor on an ankylosaur, and a carno on my doedicurus have just been super close staring each other out, neither attacking the other. Smashing rocks with my doedicurus results in the rocks just disappearing, giving no breaking animation. The quetzal has a deformed left leg. The ankle area is all twisted to crap. Also, the quetzal, when hovered even a short height from the ground, if dismounted and jumped from does not land as the ptera or argy or tape would. That is to say, landing in that immediate area. Instead the quetzal flies off great distances, usually turning even from the diirection it was facing landing somewhere else instead. This is a serious issue, especially f the player becomes encumbered or slowed for any reason and can't make it back to the mount, or, if the mount itself flies off into dangerous teritory on passive (or otherwise) and ends up mauled to death. Please get these fixed (especially the last one considering how damn hard it is to find a good quetz never mind tame one.)
  17. Disappearing Pillars

    I'm on an official Xbox PVE server (not SE or primitive). I submitted a ticket for this (#36612) with the specifics, like the server name, screenshots, etc., but I'm not posting identifying stuff here. Just the general issue since it said to do so during high ticket volume. My pillars keep disappearing even if I'm only offline for a day. Meaning if I place the pillars on Monday and don't sign in on Tuesday, they're all gone when I sign in Wednesday. Standalone pillars only. Pillars I've built on are fine. It happens whether the pillar is wood, stone, or metal and the pillars aren't near/inside resources that could somehow be forcing them to despawn. They're on open flat land around my base. I even tested dropping some in other areas and no difference. This has been happening for the last two months, possibly longer since I rarely put standalone pillars down to have noticed beforehand. I can't pinpoint exactly when it started. I just know it didn't do this prior to summer and through all of the recent updates and patches, it persists. Hopefully the devs can help! Thanks!
  18. I think there is more than enough evidence now and dating back to 2015 or even earlier in the forums that numerous people have experienced the dino disappearing bug. Specifically, these are dinos that did not starve, lose health, get knocked into another area of the map by other mobs, etc. These are dinos that vanished from the game entirely for no apparent reason and do not appear in the tribe log, a tribe's list of dinos, server logs or even save game files as people have hex edited them to find that they've even been wiped clean for those specific dinos that disappeared. Using a mod called Pet Manager (after the author's latest bug fixes) actually shows you the entire list of dinos owned by a tribe. The dinos that disappear do not get put somewhere else on the map and do not go into stasis, they just vanish entirely and no longer appear in the tribe list of dinos. Other dinos that are lost by things such as being knocked into another area of the map by other dinos can still be found using the locate button just fine. If the dinos that disappear were still there, the mod would have picked them up in the tribe list of dinos and you would still be able to locate them. We posted a comment on the mod author's page when we used the unstick button in an earlier version of the mod and it literally made a dino disappear right in front of us. The mod author posted back saying it's likely a bug that destroyed it. We confirmed that it was no longer in stasis anywhere on the map. In other words, the same dino disappearing bug was likely the culprit and it is still plaguing a lot of us on both public and private servers. At this point we've lost many dinos on our private server regardless of all the v248 patches and hotfixes (even the latest v248.51 hotfix). For example, just last night, two sabertooths (tamed two nights ago), a dilo (tamed two nights ago) and a pteranadon (tamed a week ago) just simply vanished without a trace for no apparent reason. They were not following anything, set to passive, parked inside and outside my structure, with saddles and every one of them just vanished. This also happened to other players on our private server and it continues to happen randomly. Every day we logon we think to ourselves "I wonder what dinos and how many I'm going to lose today" because it's such a common problem now. Granted, this is an early access game and we've come to accept the losses (we shouldn't have to). However, if this is to become stable before release at some point in the future, and if it's going to retain a playerbase, this bug absolutely has to be top priority and fixed once and for all. People invest so much time in taming dinos and building up their collection that to lose so many at once due to an unknown bug is very disappointing. It doesn't matter if you accept the fact that it's early access or not, because it's still disappointing and you know that if the game ever went live for an official release and this bug were to happen over and over again, the game would likely fail and not succeed as planned. Some people are too angry already in early access to keep playing because of the bug and have quit the game. Others like myself are sticking it out and writing on the forums here to explain just how serious this bug is because we care and we want the game to succeed. If so many people are experiencing this same bug, then the devs must be experiencing it on their own test servers too if they play long enough to see it happen for themselves. On our private server we destroyed all wild dinos (both with admin command and using the command line server startup feature), deleted and reinstalled all of our mods fresh (no, even without mods this bug still happens), ran the steam update to patch to the latest hotfix (v248.51 as of writing) and ensured that all of our server configuration files had the right options in them. We even cleared out all of the mods on our clients and let the game download them directly from the server. We even ran validation checks on all of our clients. Even after all that, the dino disappearing bug still happens. Finally, there is a server launch option called -noninlinesaveload and the description says "Fixed a savegame corruption case with large savegames: this is experimental, so try with this command, if you have any saves that don’t load. We’ll formally roll this loader change out in a subsequent patch after we’re 100% certain it has no side effects." On our private servers all of our save games are in the range of 40-50MB but Havoc (our server host) does not allow us to use this as a command line option to start the server. Therefore, I'm unable to test to see if the so-called "savegame corruption" that is supposedly solved by this server launch option, will prevent disappearing dinos. I would be very interested to see if someone else responds to this thread saying they will test it and report back. I mean, if there's savegame corruption happening with large savegames, and the dev team already knows this (obviously because there's a command line option to fix it), I have to wonder if this is somehow related to the dino disappearing bug that many of us are experiencing.
  19. Disappearing Dinos

    I had a carno with a saddle disappear from inside my building (completely closed in and gated with behemoth gateway). After a server restart, I found him in "unclaimed" mode, with wander on, and attacking creatures near where I live. The thing is, he was not on wander before he went missing, he was on passive and he had a saddle on. He was also not following anything. This seems to be related to why sometimes dinos just randomly disappear? Perhaps? I'm running v282.2 (hotfixed) and the dino disappearing act still happens. It's intermittent and unpredictable. We've had numerous issues with randomly disappearing dinos since we started with a fresh server back in the 270 series patches. It doesn't matter if there are mods or not. I have even read threads dating back to 2015 about these issues.
  20. Hi! Massive frustrating bug! Im playing on the eu730 the center and when redwood came out me and my buddy went there. We let our dinos in one of these on bottom laying tree stump with the hole inside and secured it with behemoth and dinogates so no wild dinos could attack them. But when we came back from farming our dinos are gone...disappeard...no deathlog or saddles on bottom or anything. Please help me !?!?!! My quetz,beaver,ankylo,doed,carno and ptera are gone. Kind regards marky
  21. Juvenile Wyvern Disappeared

    I hatched a 152 fire wyvern egg friday night, I imprinted on it saturday morning, way earlier today (Oct 2) I got off and when i got on to imprint, the wyvern had disappeared, it was juvenile. There were no messages in the tribe log and the wyvern was nowhere to be seen. Please if you can get me my wyvern back, Server: NAScorchedEarth740. Sincerely, A concerned Arkaholic and Wyvern Parent
  22. just a heads up to anyone who wants to tame a titan: Do NOT mess with the food consumption in the ini file!!! we just lost our titan that took us 2 bloody hours to get down last night after messing with the settings.. The usual bag on the ground like with all other dinos if you mess with the normal dino food consumption. that basically means that you are forced to log on DAILY to force feed the titan berries! Come on devs! fix it so that they can eat from troughs. this is just poopty poopty done!
  23. Hello, I rent a private server for me and some friends and lately we've been having an issue where random tamed dino's inside bases are disappearing. There seems to be no rhyme or reason. They dino's are on the ground. We've lost several Bronto's, some Quetzals and a couple of Paracers. There doesn't seem to be a pattern. We've lost dinos we tamed on The Center and we've lost dino's that we downloaded. No death messages appear in the tribe log for them. Thanks!
  24. On my dedicated server, after server reboot all tamed titano disappearing with platforms. Titano feeding enabled, food rate is 0.1 Last coordinates of titano is 274364 585708 7074 Its new redwood biome on center. Its happened in pve mode of server(for night server switching to pve frpm pvppve mode, using autopvetimer) I dont have this problem on the my second island server
  25. Okay so, I'm new to ark have had the game less than a week and so far I'm loving it. Been playing it nonstop, my only problem is for some reason my dinos keep disappearing. I have read countless posts on this but none seem to help my situation. I have had two whole groups of dinos disappear, about 10 in total and it really makes it hard to get into the game. I have checked under the ground in spectator mode and using the selfie key. I have no tribe log of any of them dieing as well. As far as I know they couldn't have starved because on single player the world stops when i log off. I logged off last night and came back today and all of my dinos had pulled another Houdini trick. I cant figure out why or what happened, any input helps! Thanks, JBone
